"This guy" IS FULL OF SHIT.
Bill Clinton raised taxes on everyone who uses gasoline, not just income tax for the rich.
In fact, show "this guy" the cover and article of TIME MAGAZINE from August 16, 1993 called "Overturning the Reagan Era" analyzing Clinton's budget -- it had an UPSIDE-DOWN PHOTO OF REAGAN IN HONOR OF CLINTON!
You might want to read the article and Google Clinton's gas tax -- he lost the Congress to the Republicans over it and health care reform proposals, etc. in 1994.
Tell "this guy" that Ronald Reagan was a fantasist who believed that neverending tax cuts would create so much private sector growth that tax revenue would go UP and balance the federal budget all by itself at the same rates.
This supply-side fantasy -- still clung to by Republicans today -- is ABSOLUTELY FALSE: it's never happened anywhere historically.
Money does not grow on trees, government revenue does not "trickle down" or "trickle back in;" bills do not get paid unless you pay them.
Ronald Reagan quadrupled the national debt and George W. Bush nearly doubled it.
Bill Clinton is the only president since the 1950s to balance the annual budget and produce an annual surplus -- he did it for a few years in a row and Washington could have started paying down the national debt.
But then George W. Bush came into office, deliberately refunded the surplus during healthy economic times and put two wars, a new prescription drug benefit for seniors and all kinds of pork barrel, deficit spending on credit.
Bill Clinton also passed economic stimulus, like Barack Obama, which is a very concrete and helpful use of government/taxpayer money during sour economic times, BUT THE REPUBLICANS ALWAYS OPPOSE ECONOMIC STIMULUS.
So just tell "this guy" he's full of shit and there's a reason why the overwhelming majority of Americans favor the DEMOCRATIC PARTY on economic issues.
