I do not think this is true, certainly not entirely. The dotcom bubble was a big contributor, and that had nothing really to do with Reagan as just one example. Conservatives and liberals all tend to get extreme with Reagan, either love or hate, and all miss the reality, which is that he was a mediocre president. Liberals blame him for all his faults, and miss his strengths, whereas conservatives give him credit for far too much.Yes, and Reagan's fiscal conservatism led to the balancing of the budget in the 90s.
