    At which point it started to rapidly fall. If you think that's going to happen now, I wish you well.

    Reagan isn't on the ballot in 2012 but if he was I would take his 17 million net job creation and getting us out of the Carter malaise and 20 plus misery index. I don't think Democrats want to run against Reagan's actual record and the economic conditions he inherited

    Hey, did ya notice you didn't even come remotely close to addressing my question?

    Maybe you'll get lucky though and no one else will notice.

    Amazing how liberals today compare Reagan's economic results 2 1/2 years after taking office to Obama's record 2 1/2 years in office when the Reagan economic plan wasn't even passed until August and went into effect in 1982. Obama's was passed in February 2009, a few weeks after taking office. The economy came out of recession in June 2009 and the recession during the Reagan term started in July 1981 to November 1982. Let's compare numbers two years after the end of each recession?

    Don't wish me well. I think it would good though for many people if it did though, don't you?
    Although I don't think the current political climate where one party is willing to hold the debt cieling hostage is conducive towards anything meaningful in that direction.

    re:Reagan

    Here’s how those tax law changes relate to the unemployment rate:

    So unemployment, which had been stable until Reagan cut taxes, soared during the 15 months that followed the tax cut; it didn’t start falling until Reagan backtracked and raised taxes.
    Of course, I don’t believe that correlation was causation: in fact, both job losses in 1981-2 and job gains thereafter were mainly the result of Federal Reserve policy, rather than tax changes.

    You can't subvert a U.S. Supreme Court decision by changing the Constitution. It would be rendered unconstitutional before the states could even vote on it.

    that is a complete distortion and retreating from reality. Income taxes were NOT increased and it is income taxes that benefited the taxpayers and put them in control of their own money something you don't seem to understand.

    Yes but common sense will tell you that a plan that fed Wall Street at the expense of main street would never do that. I really have no desire to argue over your lack of historical knowledge of the late 70's early 80's though.
