Ask someone who worked in the 60s and 70s if it was easy or hard to find a job.

and yes read history
calvin coolidge economic actions and what came after
george w and what came after
reagan and the recession he caused

Carter and double digit unemployment combined with massive inflation. Stopped by Reagan, after which we had an economic upswing lasting until Clinton. Not sure what alternate reality you live in Salt, but the worst economic slump of the second half of the twentieth century was under Carter.

guess it depends on where you were living at the time. Lollie and I had this argument many times.
Where I lived -Texas- was a big democrat stronghold and there were jobs a plenty. Also Louisiana, and the coastal Mississippi region.
Alabama steel mills were still going strong for top wages.
jobs didn't start dropping off till reagan. A sudden drop in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi.
Florida which always depended on tourism, saw a boom in the 80s when the first group of inbetweener boomers retired, but not for long. The stupid people who followed that boom were stuck and then taxes went up so high in parts of the state even native borns had to move.
Thing is if Reagan left it alone with minor touches we would hasve had a slight recession but righted ourselves.
but he let overseas trade go to his head and screwed our home industries, then he cut taxes so much so quickly we couldn't really recover just hold our breath.
Bush the elder had to raise taxes or it would have become much worse.
there was a tech and health science boom under clinton. I always gave him credit for facilitating that but let's say it just happened.
Along came GW and lowered taxes again -we had already had a big hit to our economy after 911 - and boom we get to 2008.
gdp -4 and obama raised that to +3. And he didn't even do a huge raise in taxes for rich. he lowered middle class tax. So well on the road to economic health even with the road blockers congress.

now they cut rich tax again and some (in my state as a matter of fact) are advocating for getting rid of income tax altogether.
like I said , sounds good in theory but we tried it. Coolidge administration cut all income tax to zero except for 2% on the top earners. That got us a depression Herbert Hoover couldn't get us out of. Though I give him credit for trying.
