Economic Ignorance Is No Way To Win A Debate

"Oh, so now you're Jack Kennedy"? Yeah, Biden actually said that. Clearly Joe is still plagerizing, this time from Lloyd Bensten, but he can't even remember prior economic events.

RYAN: You can cut tax rates by 20 percent and still preserve these important preferences for middle-class taxpayers. BIDEN: Not mathematically possible. RYAN: It is mathematically possible. It’s been done before. It’s precisely what we’re proposing. BIDEN (laughing): It has never been done before. RYAN: It’s been done a couple of times, actually. BIDEN: It has never been done before. RYAN: Jack Kennedy lowered tax rates, increased growth. BIDEN: Oh, now you’re Jack Kennedy

It's never been done? Yes it has and Jack Kennedy did it successfully. Also successful in increasing revenue by cutting tax rates were Ronal Reagan and George W. Bush. And Biden should not only know that, he should remember them.

Joe, economic ignorance is no way to win a debate. Nor is interrupting, sneering, smirking, laughing and pounding the table like some cheap communist thug.
