Wait, so every single entitlement program was paid for by the revenue from the payroll tax? What about social programs? Do you have some figures I could look at?All entitlements of any size. Welfare is tiny compared to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
Okay, I'm certainly willing to listen to your version of Star Wars. Explain why it was manifestly idiotic.That would be the version called "reality"
That would be the popular conservative mythology version.
Like I said, I don't know enough about the program to say one way or the other. The only reason I'm hesitant to accept your version of Star Wars is because it's a classic liberal talking point.So anytime a president pisses away the taxpayers money on the most absurd notion imaginable it's automatically excused by the no one can predict the future excuse?
I'm not worshiping Reagan. I'm just trying to give his Presidency an honest and non-partisan appraisal.I don't get it. Conservatives have a great example of a fiscally conservative president that was popular and pragmatic and that is Dwight Eisenhower, so why the Reagan worship?
