    The comment was right on. The statement was that Reagan's increase in payroll taxes didn't benefit the middle class so please tell me how putting more money into SS and Medicare to shore up the programs doesn't help the middle class?

    So then by your standards Govt. trickle down doesn't work either so why do so many support massive expansion including a new entitlement program? Sorry but the reality is people like you don't understand trickle down in the private sector at all. Only with trickle down are jobs created and thus the opportunity to grow in personal wealth. Govt. created jobs don't generate a damn thing but dependence and debt.

    Liberals always know what others think so thinking for oneself only matters when it meets the personal beliefs of theirs. It really is a shame that so many don't understand the concept of personal choice and responsibility.

    Great, how about a thank you for the subsidies the taxpayers like myself are providing. Guess you always expected others to provide you your personal responsibility issues. We need ACA to provide you insurance? Apparently cost and debt are irrelevant to you?

The rest is the result of the Reagan/Bush combined deficits and the compounding effects of interest costs they've generated. Conservative economics and fiscal policy have strangled this country over the past 30 years.

    Typical liberalism/socialism where people like you are jealous of what others have and thus have to punish wealth creation. Tax cuts to the rich mean the rich get to keep more of what they earn and thus have the choice of where to spend it. That doesn't work for people like you who never understand what the rich do with their money and the jobs that money creates. The rich will never spend the way you or other socialists want thus have to be punished. You need to realize that the rich don't have enough money to fund the liberal spending appetite.

    As for the debt. let's start with 1980

    Debt to the Penny (Daily History Search Application)


    Carter 900 billion
    Reagan 1.7 trillion
    GHW Bush 1.4 trillion
    Clinton 1.4 trillion
    GW Bush 4.9 trillion
    Obama 7.6 trillion

    How is your math?

    Today is July 4th, that's news to me.

    It was the liberals of the day who wanted to fight for independence, the conservative shop keepers not so much.
