The economy was the subject of last night's fourth Republican presidential debate, and you could almost hear Bill Clinton's slogan from 1992. But the eight candidates struggled to define their differences, when they were almost unanimous: ‘cut taxes, cut spending; don't raise the minimum wage.' Despite a recovery that's driven unemployment down to 5%, polls show that Republican voters are anxious about the economy. We hear about last night's appeals to the base of the party and how the GOP's economic vision compares to the Democrats'.
