Simon Rosenberg on Fox: Tax Cuts Don't Pay for Themselves

On Friday, Simon went on Fox and dealt with a conservative who is still clinging to the idea that the Bush tax cuts paid for themselves:

The proposition that the Bush tax cuts paid for themselves has been so thoroughly debunked as to be laughable. Even Greg Mankiw, George W. Bush's Council of Economic Advsiors Chair, has said that they do not. In fact, the Bush tax cuts added more to the deficit during the first Bush term than any other item.

Simon wrote up some of the arguments he uses in the interview here.
