I know exactly why i'm a Democrat Bob. I believe in the ideals of the party and freedom for all, but i'll spare you our rhetoric
Democrats have fought for the american dream and not the american bank account, unlike some.
Heres some things we've done for you bob.

Longest Economic Expansion in U.S. History. In February 2000, the United States entered the 107th consecutive month of economic expansion -- the
longest economic expansion in history. [National Bureau of Economic Research and Council of Economic Advisors]
Bush is heading us towards a recession.
Paying Off the National Debt. In July 2000, the Treasury Department announced that the United States will pay off $221 billion of debt this year --
the largest one-year debt pay down in American history. This will be the third consecutive year of debt reduction, bringing the three-year total to
$360 billion. Public debt is on track to be $2.4 trillion lower in 2000 than was projected in 1993. Debt reduction brings real benefits for the
American people -- a family with a home mortgage of $100,000 might expect to save roughly $2,000 per year in mortgage payments. Reduced debt also
means lower interest rates and reduced payments on car loans and student loans. With the President's plan, we are now on track to eliminate the
nation's publicly held debt by at least 2012. [Treasury Department, Office of Economic Policy.

More Than 22 Million New Jobs. 22.2 million new jobs have been created since 1993, the most jobs ever created under a single Administration -- and
more new jobs than Presidents Reagan and Bush created during their three terms. 92 percent (20 million) of the new jobs have been created in the
private sector, the highest percentage in 50 years. Under President Clinton and Vice President Gore, the economy has added an average of 248,000 jobs
per month, the highest under any President. This compares to 52,000 per month under President Bush and 167,000 per month under President Reagan.
Lets not even go near unemployment with Bush, he'd rather give his business buddies some tax breaks.
Fastest and Longest Real Wage Growth in Over Three Decades. In the last 12 months, average hourly earnings have increased 3.8 percent -- faster than
the rate of inflation. The United States has had five consecutive years of real wage growth -- the longest consecutive increase since the 1960s. Since
1993, real wages are up 6.5 percent, after declining 4.3 percent during the Reagan and Bush years.
Household Income Breaks $40,000 for First Time in History. Income for median households rose $1,072, or 2.7 percent, from $39,744 in 1998 to $40,816,
marking an unprecedented fifth year of significant growth in income. In 1999, the median income of African American households increased from $25,911
in 1998 to $27,910 -- an increase of $1,999, or 7.7 percent, which is the largest one-year increase ever recorded. The income of the median Hispanic
household, adjusted for inflation, increased from $28,956 in 1998 to $30,735 in 1999 -- an increase of $1,779, or 6.1 percent, which is the largest
one-year increase ever recorded
