Reagan provided more jobs for everyone. The Unions had more work then they could handle, and corporations hired so many people the unemployment was less the 5%. People were able to raise their standard of living, and didn't suffer the indignity of giving half their money to the government for taxes. It truly was Morning in America.
Reagan didn't have 5% unemployment. You know the records are online, right?

There was almost no Federal Govt. before FDR.
Reagan dramatically expanded the part of our govt. that works. He increased law enforcement and the military.
barock wants to increase food stamps and the minimum wage. He had two years of both Houses of Congress and could only come up with cash for clunkers.
Come back when you know wtf you are talking about.
He also had to contend with obstruction in over 50 Republican filibusters

Bush & Reagan doubled and tripled the debt expanding government and neglected a way to pay those tabs.
Obama's issue now is a result of the financial obligations Bush signed into law leaving on means to pay those tabs after his historic tax cuts.
1.5 million expansion of the federal work force after two tax cuts and being in two wars and signing the medicare prescription bill which is $7 Trillion.

Reagan had it FAR worse.

He had DOUBLE DIGIT INFLATION and INTEREST RATES.

He didn't blame carter and LBJ for all his woes and then go play golf either.

And rather than compromise, barock had dirty harry reid change the Senate rules for filibusters.

Reagan met with Tip O'Neill every week.

barock doesn't like having to bother with those pesky members of Congress.

At least we know what they purchased. Reagan put the Soviets OOB.

Bush was correctly lambasted by barock for spending too much. Then barock hypocritically doubled it himself.

barock added more debt than all previous Presidents combined.
