    LOL

    Where is this working man employed, anyway? The Service industry saw exponential growth.

    Well - some of that wasn't related to Reagan. . . just time and place. Technology improved significantly. and required less workers to do the same jobs - as the article points out in several places along the way.

    Everytime technology steps up someone is laid off.

    Reagan gave extreme tax breaks to the wealthy and was a major opponent of workers' unions. Why do you think the wealth of the rich went up so high during his terms in office, but the wealth of the lower middle class working families stayed the same?

    Technology does not account for such a major loss in manufacturing. That's just not feasible.

    Tax-cuts to the wealthy doesn't affect anything in relationship to employment of the unwealthy *shrug*

    I don't actually have a view about Reagan's policies because I can't go back in time and change anythign with my view or vote. . . so learning what happened works well for me - I'll let everyone else debate their effectiveness.

    Worker's unions are a joke. Just an excuse for people to do less work and make more money. They are a burden on the economy, and were brought to the forefront when the auto industry tanked.

    I don't recall saying it wasn't his economy, but you can throw words in my mouth if it makes you feel better.

    To blame a President for a recession that he began his term in is pathetic and hilarious.

    Well neither did the population, workforce capacity, number of businesses, employers, consumers.........and there were still 600,000+ jobs being created.

    Reagan Recovery
    600,000 Jobs per month

    Obama Recovery
    54,000 Jobs per month (Half from McDonald's)


    Since 100% of Democrat Legislation takes from Success and rewards Failure........perhaps there is a better way......

    I wish Der Oneder would just hold a press conference and say..."My fellow Americans,,,today we embark on....oh...**** it...I cant even say it with a straight face anymore...I'm so damn lost! I hired a bunch of people that know less about the economy than the average kid with a lemonade stand. since 2007 we have been screwing this up worse and worse. The good news is that I have asked Bill Clinon and George Bush to come by the White House and see what they can do to help. Sorry about the whole 9% unemployment and 20+onlyGODknows how migh the actual percentage is. Id like to answer questions but I'm supposed to tee off in about 20 minutes. Thanks!"
