Honestly, I don't think the Republicans are going to be any better at fixing the economy than the Democrats. Worse, if anything, since all they'll do is try and cut taxes.
Actually, no, that's not true! If you cut taxes and spending, the economy will improve.
Because, when you cut taxes, people are more likely to spend money. They don't feel like a humongous portion is going to the government. So they'll be more motivated to go out and buy something, stick money in the bank, etc.
But you have to cut spending too. Otherwise it still won't work.
*clears throat* Anyway.
