You could argue that , but you would lose to those who know the truth. Reagan reduced tax rates. He also reduced or eliminated many deductions. This resulted in a near doubling of tax revenues.
The dem congress promised $2 in spending cuts for each $1 in new tax revenue. They never delivered.(Sound familiar? Think about our latest "deal")
Sorry Charlie.
Reagan reduced tax rates, and increased spending, which resulted in a deficit. What's hard to understand about that? I'd like to see evidence of that "doubling of tax revenues," too. He certainly cut back on a LOT of those tax cuts as the deficit ballooned, by at least 25% if not more.

What about that Dem "promise" as to spending cuts, too? Obama's 2011 deficit reduction plan promised $2 in spending cuts for every dollar of new revenue, is that what you meant? What happened to that plan, did Republicans help pass it? I don't remember that...could you refresh my memory?

Oh, no doubt your side will continue to steal elections by promising to pilfer more tax payer money and give it to the "Obamaphone lady" type, lazy, system abusers.
Clue: It's not slander when it's true.
See? You're continuing the lies as we speak. Of course you can't prove that Dems "stole" any of the recent elections, but you'll keep lying just as do your mentors at Faux News, Limbaugh, and WingNutDaily, for a few examples.

"When it's true?" Show me that something you've said is true. PROVE it.

Yes of course, you are reverting to the standard gun-nut-rhetoric, following your logic you might as well cite Life itself as the big killer - it kills 300,000 people every day.

Yes, so that’s proof Miller Brewing was actually guilty. The trial never should have seen a court date. People unwilling to accept responsibility for their own actions. You choose to drink and you accept all the risks associated with drinking alcohol. Sometimes companies will settle to avoid costs, sometimes they’ll settle to avoid negative publicity.
Cite the case so it can be reviewed. Prove your statement, if you can.
I don't know about that case, but I ran across this one today:

Inmates Sue Beer, Wine Companies; Blame Alcohol For Crimes
Posted on: 5:26 pm, January 3, 2013, by Kara Sutyak

IDAHO– Five inmates in Idaho are suing some of the nation’s top liquor and wine companies for $1 billion.

ABC News reports the inmates blame alcohol for their crimes.

One inmate, who is serving a 20-to-30 year sentence for shooting a man said,“If I was not an alcoholic, the shooting would never have happened.”

ABC News said the inmates’ lawsuit was filed last month and claims alcohol companies are responsible for the inmates’ crimes and should have put warning labels on their products.
No comment from the companies.

http://fox8.com/2013/01/03/inmates-sue-beer-w...

What other country allows inmates to sue and start families from prison other than the US?

But guns are the problem with crime today.

Thanks for posting that. I saw reference to the case last night on the news. When I was a boy I knew the dangers of cigarette smoking and knew it was addicting. Despite that our courts allowed a multibillion dollar case against the tobacco companies. When I was a boy I knew the dangers of excessive consumption of alcohol, despite that the court *MAY* allow this case.

Why can’t people accept responsibility for their own actions?

Actually a $392.1 B increase, but let's say it doubled.

Look at the tables...tax receipts increased all during the '60s and '70s, and increased after Reagan as well. Note too the dropoff of $17 B from '82 to '83.

It's true Reagan reduced the fairly high tax rates of previous years, but he also broadened the base of his tax collection, and closed many loopholes and reduced many previous tax breaks - which brought in considerable new revenue he needed to help pay for his increased expenditures, especially on the military.

I just don't see the clear evidence that his cuts themselves were solely responsible for increases in tax receipts during the period. And of course my argument that he ran big deficits, a practice continued under Bush II, remains.

FWIW

Typical misstatement of the facts of the McDonald's case. The case wasn't about where she placed the coffee, or who was to blame, but about the TEMPERATURE of the coffee and the SEVERE burns it caused.

Your post is nasty, as is your attitude. Sadly typical of 'blame the victim' righties.

All of that has already been hashed, plus the Democrats renigging on their match of increased tax revenue.

Typical stance of a liberal. No one is responsible for their own actions. Blame, sue, and collect from someone else.
If you have to take a dump in the woods, and have to wipe with leaves, and those leaves turn out to be poison ivy, who do you blame? Should the land owner pay your medical bills because you couldn't identify poison ivy?
