    Reagan had to raise taxes because his tax cuts caused a deficit and we see what happened to Bush.
    Reagan made a drastic cut as he came into office, greatly improving the American economy. He then, over time, adjusted them up. Taxes were still well below what they were when he came in, when he left office.

    Pharm. drug costs are not up because of law suits. Large Pharm. companies want you to believe that so they are protected from law suits if something goes wrong. Less consumer protection is not the answer.

    As a result of spending more than we take in. Believe it or not, our gov can spend less.

    Oh, I do agree our government can spend less. They don't and Reagan certainly didn't fix that as he said he would. When government spends less wake me up.

    So, instead of addressing what the current President is doing, you take the opportunity to attack a President from 30 years ago, and you think that justifies the current administration not doing anything to curb out of control spending? The old "they did it too" excuse? Weak....Very weak.

    Typical leftist line....protect the lawyers, protect the central control, and offer a report from an institution that not only takes every chance to defend Obamacare, but probably got payoffs to do so....in short, propaganda.

    I'm not protecting lawyers I'm interested in protecting consumer rights. You are the one feeding into Big Pharm propaganda.

    Nope, not be girly....I am all for opening up the market to price negotiation...You on the other hand seem to be saying that the ACA will make it all just fine, and we should go back to sleep...Sorry, I don't trust that at all.
