    so you didn't like that data, finding it somehow incomplete. then post another more comprehensive chart
    let's see what will have changed


    it will be nothing. the republican presidents will still be found as the ones who spent more than the government took in

    but rather than whine that someone else's data devastates your argument, man up and offer us something more than a crying towel

    I have posted the charts as well as the study commissioned by the Clinton Administration on the Reagan Administration and the affects of tax cuts on the economy. The Joint Economic Commission put out a report in the mid 90's regarding the Reagan economy and is posted on another thread in this forum. You unfortunately are like far too many liberals and want to re-write history and ignore history. No President spends a dime without Congressional approval and this President with a Democrat Congress is spending us into oblivion yet you want to focus on the 1.7 trillion debt that Reagan AND the Congress created in the 80's in 8 years but not the 3 trillion dollar debt that Obama created in just two years. Got it! You are an ideologue whose sole purpose is to divert from the present.

    Nothing is going to change your mind so it serves no purpose to continue arguing what happened over 20 years ago except to divert from what is happening right now. You are so concerned about the debt that occurred in 1980 that you ignore what is happening right now.

    I know of no one with a brain who wouldn't take the 80's over what is happening right now with Obama. The majority of the American people get it, apparently you never will.

    This is an interesting site that destroys most of liberalism. Wonder if you have the guts to explore it.

    Here is a true fair and balanced look at Reaganomics. Suggest you read it as it will dispel much of the myth you and others have about what happened in the 80's.

    There are good and bad with every President and this site lays out both. I will take the 80's in a heartbeat over what we have right now. Liberal social engineering and attempts to re-write history has created a bunch of Zombies who wander around with a glazed look in their eyes everytime a liberal like Obama speaks. Personal responsibility doesn't exist in the liberal world as they continue to throw money at individual responsibility issues.

    Any other time a liberal will describe this as a cut in an attempt to sacre those who might be negatively affected by it -- so, it's a cut.

    Obviously the Cato review of Reagan has no place in the liberal playbook as they refuse to believe anything other than the myths they perpetuate.

    Wrong

    I liked George HW Bush, and Bob Dole

    the Reagan admin was among the most liberal when it came with government deficit spending.

    Any look at deficit to GDP % would show that.

    These guys arent really conservatives - right/moderates would describe them best.

    I believe this has been addressed...

    Allowing people to keep more of their own money isn't liberal. Read the Cato analysis of the Reagan years as it dispels a lot of the liberal myths including yours.
