yup, Reagan raised taxes. it was a deal he made with the Democrats to solve the deficit; for every dollar he raised taxes they were supposed to cut three in spending. then he (naively, i guess) trusted them enough to go ahead and sign the tax increase into law before they passed the spending cuts.
and then (unsurprisingly) the cuts never materialized.

All partisan rhetoric aside, what do you think the role of the Federal Govt. should be and where are the states in that vision? Your vision seems to be one of a large central govt. that creates a nanny state. Is that the vision that the Founders had? We can continue to post numbers until hell freezes over and nothing is going to change your mind or mine because it does appear we have a different vision. Wonder which one is closer to our Founders?
Like it or not, Obama is going to have to run on his record and objectively that record isn't very good especially when you compare it to a totally disasterous 2008 when Bush and a Democrat Congress were in charge
