Kudlow’s Money Politics

My Interview with President Bush

Here are a handful of noteworthy remarks the President delivered during our discussion last Friday at the White House.

On Tax Cuts and the Economic Boom:

PRESIDENT BUSH: [B]ack when I first came in here, the job market was falling off and a lot of Americans were wondering whether or not we’d ever get our footing back. We cut the taxes, and there was a big debate here in Washington, D.C., (with opponents arguing) “this won’t help the economy.”

So the 138,000 (job number) reminded me that not only are people working, which is good, but that the tax cuts are working, and the economy’s strong and vibrant, and we need to keep it that way’
