“During a stint as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers for President George W. Bush, from 2001 to 2003, Mr. Hubbard was known as the principal architect of the Bush tax cuts.”

The Bush Tax Cuts were a disaster for our country. We lost more than $1 Trillion in revenue due to the Bush Tax Cuts. We could have used that money for our schools, hospitals, roads, bridges, and on and on. The Bush Tax Cuts mainly benefited the SuperWealthy, while the Average American’s wealth decreased during the Bush presidency. The architect of the Bush Tax Cuts – Glenn Hubbard – should not be teaching economics or supervising any business school as its dean. Worse yet, Glenn Hubbard advocates doubling down on “Trickle-down.” Glenn Hubbard wants more tax cuts that mainly benefit the SuperWealthy. We tried “Trickle-down” once, during Reagan’s term, twice, during George W. Bush’s term, and that’s it! No more! You can’t pull the wool over my eyes three times. Glenn Hubbard should resign as Dean of Columbia Business School. If he does not, the study of economics in America is a shameless exploitation of the majority of Americans for the benefit of the top 1-2% income earners. Glenn Hubbard helped cause the dire deficits we face as a country. He should be ashamed. But instead he is Dean of Columbia Business School and adviser to Mitt Romney – a man who is the epitome of the self-serving, tax-evading, lying, cheating, stealing, ship U.S. jobs to China and make millions of dollars of profit by ruining productive workers’ lives SuperRich.

You can call Glenn Hubbard “The Master of Disaster.” He did it with the Bush Tax Cuts in 2001 and 2003, and Glenn “The Master of Disaster” Hubbard wants to do it again with Romney. Don’t let him.

Vote for Barack Obama and the Democrats across the board in 2012, because President Obama and the Democrats work to benefit the majority of Americans.
