Our local paper’s political columnist Rob Christensen writes this: “Trickle-down economics. Yes, the same warmed-over philosophy that the elder George Bush once called ‘voodoo economics’ and Sen. Bob Dole called ‘a riverboat gamble.’”
But Howard Baker, not Bob Dole, called it a riverboat gamble. Sources are here and here. Bob Dole was co-chair of Joint Tax Committee when I worked there – “riverboat gamble” is not his phrase, and not his style.
I wrote Rob to see if he will correct this. UPDATE: The N&O corrected the error. See here: https://newrevenue.org/2013/08/06/raleigh-news-observer-corrects-error-online/.
