    Reagan Insider on how the GOP, and Dems Destroyed the U.S. Economy

    Reagan insider: GOP destroyed economy Paul B. Farrell - MarketWatch

    Before commenting to quote the actual article:
    Please listen with an open mind, no matter your party affiliation: This makes for a powerful history lesson, because it exposes how both parties are responsible for destroying the U.S. economy. Listen closely:
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Reagan Republican: the GOP should file for bankruptcy
    Stockman rushes into the ring swinging like a boxer: "If there were such a thing as Chapter 11 for politicians, the Republican push to extend the unaffordable Bush tax cuts would amount to a bankruptcy filing. The nation's public debt ... will soon reach $18 trillion
    What was the debt when Dems took over Congress? $8,506,973,899,215.23 So in 4 years the Dems doubled the national debt, yet this ass blames the Republicans?
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    Our tax revenue has been less than our spending for a long time. Now, who brought down our tax revenue? Hmmm....

    I suppose the poor sap will soon be labeled a disgruntled former staffer who really wasn't of much importance. The GOP is good at throwing party dissidents under the bus.

    So no legit conservatives on this board are going to come in here and comment I guess?

    Well for example, one's that don't believe things that can't be debated. For example, crunch believes President Obama being president is illeagal.

    The numbers are staggering, no doubt. And I am pretty sure that "this ass" is not claiming the GOP is solely responsible, but that the GOP is supposed to be the more responsible party. It used to be, and I am old enough to remember those days.

    Yeah I remember when being a Republican actually stood for something. I used to know quite a few good ones, but they are a dying breed.

    Oh, for cripe's sake. What Richard Cohen or Molly Ivins column did you pull that from?
