    Hey Section

    You had a question a while ago I said I'd answer and I don't think I ever did. Something about Bushs tax cuts, or the current economic growth cycle or something...do you remember what it was? I will try to answer it. I apologize - I completely forgot about it....

    This was probably it, I was actually waiting your response also, your a bit more eloquent than I.

    Are you implying that tax recipts wouldn't have gone up without the tax cuts? Don't you think there are other factors involved? How about the fact that the country was at rock bottom after 9/11. How about the fact that interest rates were at an all-time low which caused a housing boom. Millions of people refinanced and pumped money back into the economy. I predict that we will have to pay the piper soon.

    Now I don't have any background in economics and you are more qualified than I to make statements reguarding the state of the economy, so please explain to me how I am wrong.

    Yeah that was it. No worry though. I promised to answer you on how trickle-down economics doesn't work almost a year ago ;) Haven't had the time to do the research (aka ask my fiance who has a BS in Economics to explain it to me).
