So, Harold. What should Dems do now?
One: Cut taxes for businesses! This is a very popular position, as many people own businesses or are employed by one.
[Two, three: some other stuff.]
Four: Cut the budget deficit! This is also a very popular position, as it seems "responsible." I am however unclear as to how the federal government getting less money will lead to the federal government being less in debt (maybe by eliminating earmarks?), but perhaps I just don't understand supply-side economics.
(Ford cites the Clinton administration's booming economy and budget surplus, which came about because of tax hikes enacted in the early years of his administration, and also an economy driven by the dot-com bubble. For the record.)
(Ronald Reagan broke this country, also.)
