ART LAFFER (FORMER REAGAN ECONOMIC ADIVSER): I thought it was completely inappropriate to impeach Bill Clinton, myself, personally, at the time -- because Bill Clinton was a great president. He may have been a flawed man, but you know, as long as the markets are doing well, and all that -- if they'd have knocked him out of office, Neil, he still would have been a flawed man -- only, not president.
NEIL CAVUTO (HOST): Right. So, you don't want to see anything that disrupts this -- this ride we've been on, right?
LAFFER: Zero. I think it's really important that we have a president of the United States who is focused on growing the economy, focused on providing prosperity, jobs, output, employment -- and leave him alone, and let him do his thing. He's doing all these wonderful things. The tax bill, now it's paying for itself as they know. the numbers are now in. They yelled about it --
CAVUTO: And the economy is on fire.
LAFFER: Yeah, it's doing really well.
