Okay, numbers from Wikipedia<quoted text>
Worst economic record? Reagan vs Carter? Really? You may disagree with policy but your subjective judgement is way way way off in my opinion
Carter's total deficits for 4 years :$230 billion, or yearly average of + or -$80 billion;
Reagan's total deficits for 8 years, 1.4 trillion, or yearly average of _ or -$170 billion. Double Carter.
Republican administrations ALWAYS come in with bigger gov'ts and bigger deficits. Always.
