    Yet it was Dems reaching across the aisle, unlike today's GOP....
    Yes, but never the House. Just took a direct lightning hit. Out now.

    Please show me on the BLS site where they define "private sector workforce. You won't find it. The labor force and non-farm payroll jobs are completely different and non-comparable.
    Read Employment Situation Technical Note and try to use the correct terminology. It's just confusing. For example "Bush l;ost (sic) 673,000+ PRIVATE sector in the LABOR force!" It's not clear what you actually mean: jobs, employment, or the Labor Force. Three completely different things.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    lol, Right,


    TAX cuts, (After his tax cuts, Dems worked with Reagan 11 different times to get new revenues (EVEN Reagan understood basic math, unlike today's GOP) , AMNESTY, SS reform, Federal Employees Retirement System (reform), etc... Sure, Reagan didn't NEED to use executive powers like Obama NEEDS to!

    They never honored their spending cut pledges.

    RIGHT WING MYTH. I'm shocked you didn't know that?

    The historical myth that Reagan raised $1 in taxes for every $3 in spending cuts


    The Facts

    Despite Reagan’s claim that he made a deal with the Democrats, the Senate at the time was controlled by Republicans. Sen. Bob Dole of Kansas — then chairman of the Finance Committee and later the majority leader and Republican nominee for president — was a driving force behind a big tax increase because he was concerned about soaring deficits after Reagan had boosted defense spending and slashed taxes.

    Dole warned the White House that the final year of Reagan’s three-year tax cut was at risk unless revenue could be raised in other ways


    ..The Pinocchio Test

    It is time to abandon this myth. Reagan may have convinced himself he had been snookered, but that belief is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the deal he had reached.

    Congress was never expected to match the tax increases with spending cuts on a 3-to-1 basis

    An an answer based on a story of what Repubs did has nothing to do with Dems not keeping their word.

    Some of those fact thingies to rebut your claims that decline in labor force participation is just baby-boomers retiring. You missed it so I quoted my post for you.
