From WWII until 1980, the debt as a percentage of GDP consistently fell. Reagan blew that up and put in effect economic policies that have led directly to the current debt crisis. If the top effective tax rate had remained the same from 1986 until today, the total debt would stand around $2 trillion instead of $15 trillion. And that is according to Bruce Bartlett -- senior advisor to Ronald Reagan.
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
