Reagan lowered the "unearned income" tax rate; then had to raise taxes 11 times before leaving office. H. Bush had to raise taxes too. Reagan's plan backfired big time. We are still paying the price.

The narrative is wrong, however, for thoroughly documentable reasons. First, it was Carter not Reagan who appointed Volcker a full 14 months before Reagan became president. Carter knew that Volcker would raise rates sharply probably causing a recession but told his counselors who advised against the appointment to let him worry about the politics.
The Federal Funds rate was 11 percent when Carter appointed Volcker in August 1979. By the time Reagan took office in January 1981, Volcker had pushed the rate to 20 percent (the prime was 21 percent) and rates never went higher. So contrary to the mythology, Carter took the political risks not Reagan. Indeed during the first year of Reagan's administration Volcker brought the Federal Funds rate down from 20 to 12 percent, and pushed it down to 8.5 percent by the end of 1982. It took no political fortitude on Reagan's part to tolerate a 60 percent decline in rates over his first two years. Click for entire article.
SEEMS to me Carter was the "Great President"; he had the balls to take the unpopular steps to fix the inflation that the two Repubs caused before him. Please do your research.
SEEMS to me that Ronald Reagan was REALLY good at taking credit for other people's work. Know anyone like that?
Reagan "TRIPLED" the national debt with STAR WARS and tax cuts to the rich; remember? Or do you just remember parts of some things. Reagan took the National Debt into the TRILLIONS; isn't that when someone had the HUGE DEBT CLOCK built?
Reagan GREW Gov't big time!!!! So did his minion W. Bush. Under O, Gov't is shrinking; isn't that what you want?
You complained about businesses with 50 to 99 employees needed more time; so O gave them one more year. Are you against O working with small business? Really?????
Did you hear, Congress is broken. Everyone keeps saying O isn't doing anything; and when he uses Exec. Power to get pass that LOSER Congress, you complain again. REALLY??????
You people are starting to sound like sour old housewives. Not pretty at all.
Did you actually just use the Huffington Post as a reference? No wonder your head is so screwed up.

This has become an incredible failure. Obamacare has become an embarrassment to all Americans. Obama has made America the laughing stock of the world. He is a socialist who's plan is to destroy the middle class. His fellow democrats backed him up on Obamacare not even knowing what was in the bill. The republicans warned us what was going to happen and they were 100% correct. If you are middle class in America and you vote for a democrat you are either nuts or you want to join the poor. Wake up!

Are you kidding me. Most industrialized countries already have "socialized" affordable healthcare. Their people go to the doctor when they need to. Their doctors are paid a good wage and are happy.

The Republicans want to you repeal O so the Insurance Industry can get their HUGE PROFITS back. Did you know that they wanted to stop covering Asthma when diagnosed in childhood and carried into adulthood; did not want to pay for a possible lung transplant some need. They claim that people change jobs/insurance plans too often today and the last insurance company should have the burden of the transplant cost.

I agree - EXPAND Medicare and take Insurance Co. profits out of the picture!!!

If you were smart enough, you would see that the same doctors that are in private insurance medical directories are in Medicare directories. Check for yourself!!!!! Money is Money.

First, I don't think you can handle the truth. You are too afraid to research and find that you have been misled for SOOOOO long by your party. Why do you think the Republican Party is about the EXPLODE? LIES and GREED, my friend.

You do realize that Fox "Faux" News will not tell you the truth, don't you?

They just hired James Carville, a Democrat, to try and legitimize their network, but it will not work. Dems want the truth no matter how good or bad. Old James is going to take the money and run laughing all the way to the bank.

Huffington Post carries news from several sources; unlike Fox "Faux" News.

Seems to me, Fox "Faux" News makes it up as they go. Twisting facts to agree with them. That should scare you. Have you read the book about Alies?

One more thing, the poor did not shrink the Middle Class; the 1% did when they sent Middle Class jobs overseas. Again, worker productivity has gone way up, but pay has NOT followed. However, the 1% have gotten even richer. You should ask the GOP (1%), where are the good Middle Class Jobs that they traded for tax cuts. That is where you anger should be! You was robbed by the GOP (Reagan, W. Bush and GOP in Congress who keep giving everything to For Profit).

It is just common sense. You should get some.

You people do realize that the GOP wants to get rid of:

the labor board (looks out for employees)
the EPA (you know, safeguards air and water you cannot live without)
the regs on Wall Street; they should be able to do whatever it takes to make themselves rich beyond their dreams; even if it is at the expense of your retirement account. If you don't believe me, ask the ones who lost their retirement account, or most of it, in 2007-2008.

I read an article where J P Morgan was fined for wrong doing and then gave their CEO Jamie a huge raise. Is that true/right?

Follow the money.

Looks like most of Mitt's money came from Wall Street.

Didn't Mitt claim that when his family voted as to whether he should run for Pres, he voted NO? Why would anyone give money to or vote for someone who DOES NOT WANT THE JOB? Oh, yeah, I don't think he said this until after he loss.

LW, you are brainwashed.

I am at the point where I am about to take my football and go home. Cash in my chips and live off my savings. What's the point of trying to make a living when the government fueled by the "gimme your stuff" voters makes it hard on every middle class worker and business owner. I'm tired of paying other people's bills who vote to destroy the only country that has consistently allowed incredibly poor people to become well off in only one generation.

I know the truth, and what you are spewing is strictly Democratic talking points, nothing more, and far from truth. Anyone needing your "guidance" is beyond hope, and that's not me.

The insurance companies have even bigger profits now thanks to Oblundercare. If for some reason insurance company profits do fall short, even after Obama forcing inidividuals and companies to hand over their money to these corporations, we the tax payer get the privilege of bailing them out.

Living Wage and all the others: everyone is going to have to agree to disagree. No one is going to change anyone's mind on this forum or in life. Obama's legacy will be that of one of the most disasterous presidencies in modern times, yet the opposing party can't field a suitable alternative. What LW feels is the true path is to me simply foolishness, yet I know that there are no simple solutions. I do know this - no subsidy is ever temporary, yet all should be. We as a society haven't hit bottom yet but we are very, very close. I fear there is a thinning of the herd on the horizon and it won't be pretty when it happens
