    No, FDR depression era policies created the strong post war period. Reagan's war on Americans through his anti union policies and deregulation of banking and manufacturing has dashed the hopes of average Americans. Restrictions and regulations aren't the enemy, Reagan was, he's gone, but his policies are still hurting Americans, that is the 99%ers of course.

    Sorry, but it's on the Dems. From my WaPo link in #99:

    Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that Republicans were willing to attach “trade adjustment assistance” — which would provide funding authority for worker assistance programs — to the fast-track bill. But he made no pledge to include a trade enforcement bill — which would, among other things, take aim at alleged Chinese currency ma*nipu*la*tion and is opposed by the administration — or a fourth bill concerning trade with Africa.
    McConnell said those provisions could be attached by amendment to the bills under consideration.
    “We want to pass this and get this to the president’s desk,” he said. “It’s the Democrats who are standing in the way of what is one of the president’s prime domestic policy plans for the economy of this country.”

    Sometimes I fear I'm the only one here who reads history. WW2 not only generated massive development of US industry, it also destroyed or severely crippled most of our economic competitors. The U.S. economy stood as an unchallenged giant.

    Free trade ? Love it.

    Protectionism ? Its short sighted and a predictable left wing " solution "...Hate it.

    Reading Progressive rants against TPP while they keep their mouths shut on Obama's decision to flood this Country with Millions of illegals ?

    Love it.

    Jack, your not the only one that reads history. There's lots of history books on this subject. You are probably the only one that reads history books with a pro conservative slant though, that's obvious.

    Both parties are guilty of "flooding this country with illegals". And our borders have been porous only forever.

    I am not among those who belittle FDR's accomplishment, but WW2 (growth here, destruction there) was the more important factor.

    Immigrants and porous borders have been sources of strength.
