    No silly goose. The Feds will let them opt out, then cancel all of their Federal appropriations.

    37 democrat senators and 133 democrat congressmen voted for the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981, but the bill was 100% Reagan's fault??

    Typical lib.

    Yeah, I guess that's why he won reelection with 585 of the popular voted and 525 electoral votes, the most in history. He also won 49 states, losing only Minnesota, Mondale's home state, by 3,800 votes.

    58% of the country must have been "cons".

    LOL!

    the gip grabbed 45 states in 80, 49 in 84

    he took NEW YORK and MASSACHUSSETTS twice---for example

    why, his comprehensive success has become so universally recognized even the present poser made his obeisance, it was obligatory

    Daily Kos: Obama "I think Ronald Reagan changed the trajectory of America"

    everything changed after dear ronnie's funeral, the haters came around

    Typical lib.
    The Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981 was repealed in 1982 with the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982, before it could take effect.....

    "The original TEFRA bill as passed by the House lowered taxes[7]. The Republican-controlled Senate replaced the text of the original House bill with a number of tax increases, and the bill became law after President Ronald Reagan signed it....

    In 1988, libertarian political writer Sheldon Richman described TEFRA as "the largest tax increase in American history." In 2003, former Reagan adviser Bruce Bartlett wrote in the National Review that
    "TEFRA raised taxes by $37.5 billion per year", elaborating, "according to a recent Treasury Department study, TEFRA alone raised taxes by almost 1 percent of the gross domestic product, making it the largest peacetime tax increase in American history."[8]....

    Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Typical con hypocricy.

    Thanks Prof. I don't have time to play his silly games today.

    Libs seem to forget that Reagan only agreed to the tax hikes if spending would be drastically cut. When Congress didn't cut spending, Reagan vetoed the budget bill and it was subsequently overridden by Congress. Yet they continue to claim it was Reagan that raised the deficit.

    Re: Prop C passes overwhelmingly

    Yes, thank you Prof, apparently the facts were a little too difficult for Gill to debate when they're not in his favor. So you saved us both a lot time and effort by completely changing the subject from Prop C, to Reagan, and now to the corruption of big banks and corporate greed. Although I must say, it probably isn't too much of a stretch to connect the dots there, too. Savings and loan scandle ring a bell? Where's my chalkboard?

    Well now lets see, Dodd was beholding to Goldman Sachs. But then he ain't running for re-election again so he's irrelevant now. Geitner was a former employee of Goldman Sachs and appointed to the NYFederal Reserve during the Bush adminsitration and replaced Henry Paulson, a former Goldman Sachs CEO as Treasury Secratary. So guess who Goldman Sachs is contributing heavily to this year? Republicans. Don't kid yourself, if a Conservative takes the whitehouse in 2012, it will still be Goldman Sachs pulling the strings.

    Big Pharma got its way with Bush's pharmacutical bill which is bankrupting Medicare and thats why we needed a healthcare bill. But the politicians cowtowed to them again and watered down healthcare bill and if big business gets their way the bill will be repealed, medicare will go bankrupt and then hundreds of millions of Americans will not have medical insurance and won't be able to afford medical care and will end up going bankrupt. The only thing conservatives are promising for Americans here is sickness, poverty and death.

    The whacked out radical Koch brothers have taken over the tea party movement and if they get enough tea partiers elected they want to wipe out all the social safety nets for the middle class (public education, social security, unemployment, minimum wage, labor unions, etc) and abolish all regulations protecting the environment. The only thing conservatives are promising for Americans here is a dumbed down dirty banana republic. So as China moves forward, America moves backward.

    My what an ugly sick future you conservatives have in mind for America.

    Prof changed the subject ???? You have a very short memory. Sad when you can't remember your own postings:

    Oh, you must be right, the Prof changed the subject from Prop C to Obama ratings first, then I made the comparison to Reagan ratings and then you joined in and then you quickly skidaddled when confronted with the facts and THEN the Prof changed the subject again to banks and corporate greed and now here we are. So what subject would you like to talk about now? Or should we leave it up to the Prof to surprise us? LOL
