    Got it, Reagan is responsible for everything that happened in 1981 and 1989(9 years) but Obama isn't responsible for 2009? Liberal logic and very selective analysis on your part.

    Well there you go, you get to deny the massive increases in govt spending as stimulus. This is just the sort of dishonest posting I have come to expect.

    So you think that was an insult. If taken as such my apology, I thought it was reality
    It isn't up to me to make the judgement.

    Get someone to read this for you, the Reagan stimulus program was the Economic recovery Act of 1981 it was all tax cuts. Compare that Act to Obama's

    I'm more that willing to argue that Reagan as a matter of policy does not get to claim his first year (we keep telling you that the last budget is largely in effect as are the economic conditions) as again, Obama was only responsible for @ 12% of the 2009 budget....as you have been shown time after time after time. But that has nothing to with showing that GDP was NOT "$2.8T" in 1981.

    What you want to ignore is the FACT, there was a budget in 1981 and NONE in 2009 until Obama signed it. Now tell me why Reagan is responsible for the 1981 deficit but Obama not responsible for the 2009 deficit?

    I have no idea why you think Kengor, the ultimate Raygun bootlicker, has any standing in defining what stimulative spending happened under Raygun, especially since he limits his discussion to tax cuts as stimulation. He is a frigging Poli-Sci major. FFS!

    Doesn't matter whose boots he licks, are the numbers accurate? BLS, BEA, and Treasury say the numbers back Reagan and destroy Obama

    We REALLY have to go through this charade every frigging day with you? I suppose so since no matter the number of times posted, you still can't remember who was responsible for the FY2009 budget:

    Obama’s Spending: ‘Inferno’ or Not?

    Are you ever going to admit that the BEA does NOT support your "$2.8T" for Raygun?

    Be serious! You didn't know the term until this recent exchange. It has to do with how savings pushes real interest rates into negative territory. Interestingly enough, it is achieved through the same neo-liberal policy to which you ascribe.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    And you have gone off on a tangent from what is stimulative spending.
