Conservatives gave us record deficits and an illegal invasion of a country that wasn't a threat to us and the deepest recession in 70 years and maniacs shooting doctors.
So what have conservatives done in the past 40 years to make the lives of anyone who isn't rich better?
The opposed the Clean Air Act and The Clean Water Act and the EPA and Medicare and Clinton's tax increases (which only set the stage for the greatest expansion in a century or more). They deregulated banks which led directly to the current recession. They have lied about climate change/global warming for at least 15 years and stopped us from taking on the most important challenge this world faces right now. They insisted that the federal government should intervene in private medical decisions made by a grieving husband in Florida after illegally disenfranchising thousands of (mostly minority) voters just before the 2000 election. They have spent the past 6 month lying about health care reform, especially the public option.
They have opposed every increase in the minimum wage despite all the evidence that it actually benefits people and doens't actually lead to job losses.
Proposition 13 in California lowered people's property taxes and eviserated public education in that state.
So really, what positive thing for the majorit of American's have conservatives accomplished in the past 30 or 40 years??
