How George H.W. Bush Killed the Republican Party


We all remember the quote from President George H.W. Bush… “Read my lips. NO NEW TAXES.” Only to shortly thereafter find a way to raise taxes. Albeit faced with a recession, the President broke an open lipped promise that ultimately, dealt a major blow to the Republican party. Now we have Donald Trump as President. What a change from the norm right?
