I don't agree with that whatsoever. Obama wanted massive changes but could only get the 32k+ crowd moved up to the 28% bracket (early on that is).
Add in the Stimulus being much smaller then he wanted.....and to me, that already is two drastic changes from the W era
they both basically agreed on taxes, he did extend the bush tax cuts.
they both agreed that stimulus spending would fix the economy. they both would have signed any stimulus package congress sent to them.
they both agreed on raising minimum wage.
they both agreed on extending unemployment benefits
they both agreed on bailing out GM
above are all the keystone economic policies IMO.
what terrible thing did bush do to the economy in the last 2 years? he seem to do almost everything dems wanted
