    What, that I heard Bernie Sanders say the unemployment rate was 13% and that he said the difference was the labor participation rate? Why would I retract that? That's what he said.

    Reagan did not end the cold war. The cold war ended on his watch. The country and eight presidents fought the cold war. Ronald Reagan was a disaster to this country and the 1%'s thug.

    There were good and bad with Reagan. He was effective at changing the government from that which was created by the New Deal and he played a major role in ending the cold war. He also began the move toward consolidation of wealth at the top of the economic food chain, and changed the Anti-Trust law environment that has led to corporate consolidation and a drastic reduction in competition in the marketplace. Like any other President; some good and some bad.

    Your implication that Reagan won the cold war is - at best - hyperbole. It's like saying Truman won WWII.

    HIs fascist actions towards our Olympic team was beyond disgusting: he almost ruined the games single handedly

    His inept failure to deal with Irani banditry set the stage for future attacks by Fundi-islamists

However, back when I was a small boy and this nation was number one, after WWII, those high 90% tax rates were only imposed on the highest portions of income, in a progressive manner. Adjusted for inflation, if Reagan had not succeeded in eliminating those highest rate levels, today's billionaires would still be billionaires, but the taxes on the middle class would have been much less of a burden, and those of us in the middle class would be better off relatively. The troublesome widening divide between the super rich and the rest of us would not be quite so horrific. Sorry I did not make his point originally.
    undertaking the middle and lower classes is why so many in the middle and lower classes want more and more and more government, and the people making between about 400K and 5 million are the most taxed (in terms of percentages) in the USA. I am in that group and I tire of being told I need to pay more and more so the middle class can have more and more handouts. AND I tire of being told that makes me part of the "super rich". when 300K or more puts you in the top tax bracket, its idiotic

    and I totally oppose any progressive taxes. The rich pay more anyway under a flat tax. Its the death tax and the progressive income tax that insulates the super rich
