Like pretty much everything Mallard says, like pretty much everything every major Republican figure says, this is a demonstrable spin at best and lie at worst.
Federal revenue normally increases every year. In fact, revenues have declined in only five years since 1962. The 35 percent growth between 2003 and 2006 is significant – the last major growth in revenue was between 1997 and 2000, when the economy was booming and federal receipts rose 28.2 percent. But the recent three-year period also comes after three years of decreases, a drop Viard attributes to the 2001 tax cuts and the start of a recession that same year.If you look at the graph below, you can clearly see that from 2001-2003 (after the first Bush Tax Cut), revenue declined. So, you know, Mallard is a lying sack of crap.
In any event...no matter who you vote for, remember to vote. But don't vote for people or a party who lie every time they open their mouth and try to suppress the vote.
