    Percentage change, tell me which would you prefer given a choice, 2.6 trillion debt on a 5.2 trillion dollar economy or 18.2 trillion in debt on a 17.5 trillion dollar economy?

    Another way of looking at it, Reagan inherited a 2.8 trillion dollar economy that went to 5.6 trillion or an increase of 2.8 trillion dollars. for that the cost was 1.7 trillion dollars in debt.

    Obama inherited a 14.7 trillion dollar economy that is now 17.5 trillion or a 2.8 trillion dollar increase at a cost of 7.6 trillion in debt.

    Doesn't appear that you have much of a case for your hated of tripling the debt.

    At the expense of the middle class that thirty years of Reaganomics, (also known as voodoo economics by his Vice President) has waged war upon.

    Exactly, that is why Reagan won 49 states in 1984, he alienated the middle class.

    Obama and Bush were both re-elected to second terms. 1984 was too soon to realize that Reaganomics was going to hurt the middle class. Nice to see you ignore HW Bush's opinion of Reaganomics.

    Tell me exactly how creating 17 million jobs, doubling the GDP hurt the middle class? You really are out of touch with reality. How old were you during the 80's. I was in my early 40's

    Raising payroll taxes probably did not help out the middle class very much

    The only thing Reaganomics did to the middle class was provide as a vehicle for upward mobility. Why would someone want to be middle class when they could have a President who implements policy that provides them the opportunity to become upper class?
