At last night's vice presidential debate, Paul Ryan used John F. Kennedy's lowered tax rates as an example of how to increase growth. When his opponent vice president Joe Biden said it wasn't mathematically possible, Ryan fired back.
"It is mathematically possible. It's been done before." Ryan continued after a spirited back and forth, " Jack Kennedy lowered tax rates, increased growth."
