“those huge deficit busting cuts again”
Under those tax cuts the Federal revenue, in dollar terms and as a % of total income tax revenue and as a % of GDP, in the highest tax brackets rose.
In shear economic terms, they did not produce a rise in the deficit.
The problem was not on the revenue side. The problem was that even though revenue increased, spending increased by an even greater degree.
Shove it up your .... Well you are all Azz so there probably isn’t a logical starting point.

“That is what wiped out the Clinton surplus Bush inherited. That and two wars.”
The so-called “Clinton surplus” was NEVER the Clinton surplus.
That surplus was the result of tax and spending changes the post-1994-election Congress FORCED into the budgets. In the final stage of that force, parts of the Federal apparatus in Washington were left unfunded and temporarily shut down, with only temporary funding for other operations passed until Clinton agreed to the changes - the changes the GOP in Congress forced on him, the changes that resulted in the so-called “Clinton surplus”.
The Dems said they would block the tax cuts if they were made permanent. A position that hasn't changed.
