It was NOT conservative policies that caused the economic crash, and the stimulus did NOT work. Raising taxes on the wealthy is NOT the solution to any economic problems.
What REALLY tanked the economy in 2008 was the Left's failed egalitarian theory which REQUIRED sub-prime mortgage lending to the lower 1/3.
The idea was that they would then segue into the Middle Class.
This got force under Slick Willie Clinton when his real father, Janet Reno, THREATENED lenders who did not comply with the left's CRA lending demands.
I was a senior level banker with major banks for many years-- a simple truth: many people are not credit-worthy for mortgages, or loans period. Barney Fwank, Chris Dodd, etc., CAUSED the crash!
