"The original TEFRA bill as passed by the House lowered taxes. 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."....

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.
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politicians cowtowed to them again and watered down healthcare bill and if big business gets their way the bill will be repealed, medicare will go bankrupt and then hundreds of millions of Americans will not have medical insurance and won't be able to afford medical care and will end up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.
