Letter to the Editor:
So Robert Reich calls conservatives liars when they state that economic growth and jobs reduce poverty. Economists better than Reich would disagree with him.
Let’s look at some of the lies that Democrats have used. Reich was part of the Clinton administration. Back then the Democrats tried to portray Republicans as heartless because they supposedly wanted to cut entitlement spending.
Actually, the Republicans wanted to slow the rate of increase in spending, not decrease it. Their proposals were for increases greater than the rate of inflation, but less than what the Democrats wanted. The Democrats were lying.
