    Saint Ronnie said higher taxes were good.
    Why does the current GOP disagree?

    Everything sounds better, after 2 dozen eggnogs.

    The current crowd worships the Gospel according to Limbaugh. “We don’t don’t have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem.”

    Looks like caroling and politics don’t mix.

    I could do research about your USA, but didn’t Reagan run on a platform of lower taxes?
    That’s why he is indeed their “Saint Ronald The Great”, even though by your current standards he’d be way too liberal for the Democrats.

    That’s actually a misconception. Although he does seem fairly rational in comparison with today’s Republicans, he would in no way, be “too liberal for the Democrats”. I don’t have time to list the reasons, there are so many.

    Reagan raised taxes dozens of times, especially payroll taxes that hit the middle class hardest, and never once submitted a balanced budget. Most of what you hear about him is a manufactured myth.

    chizzel – the strip isn’t done any more. These are re-runs.

    He also lowered the dividend and capital gains taxes from 70+% to 39%. Something about trickle-down economics. Trouble is, the trickle-down never trickled down.

    Regan began with a dead economy and kickstarted it by cutting taxes, per the trickledown theory. When this didn’t work fast enough he restored the tax cuts and instead borrowed from the US to get money (=industry=jobs) into the economy. Net result was the tripling of the national debt. This worked out so well that from then on borrowing and raising the national debt was standard practice; the only president to reduce the national debt (over the objections of the Republicans. Remember what happened to Newt?) was Clinton.

    Humph—that got mangled somewhere…Regan actually ended the tax cuts that he started at the beginning of his term.

    There’s only one problem with trickle-down economics: it doesn’t consider the greed of those at the top, who decide not to let the economics trickle out of their hands. I think the middle class should have gotten the bailout. But then again, greed is not limited to the rich.
