its obvious you're not following the thread. this is a comparission between Reagan and Obama. there are no rules as to what is going to be talked about, and health care was an issue during Reagan's time

Or did you forget that Reagan de-funded support and coverage for mental health research and care while he was in office?

Yes, yes, yes, with a giant American flag waving gently behind him, God Bless America playing over loudspeakers as fireworks went off across the nation and little children and old people wept with joy. We get it, you worship him. He was your Messiah. (Sorry, couldn't resist. )

Obama came in in the midst of the worst economic downturn in nearly a century and talked optimistically of hope and change, and you all ridiculed him for having that optimism in America. And now you ridicule him for not being optimistic enough? Sheesh, make up your minds.

As you said, you are not talking about policies, you are talking about how much Regan cared about AMERICA
I think the point of this post is that under the health care reform we have now, AMERICANS are being taken care of better.

Due mainly to the two Reagan tax cuts in 1981 and 1983, government revenue almost doubled. The 1980s was one of the most prosperous decades in the history of the country... and not just for the "rich."
Ironic that you accuse others of presenting myths then present myths. Reagan never presented a balanced budget and tax revenue fell after Reagan cut taxes.

Does any of this sound familiar? Naw, I didn't think so. Everything was somehow a freaking bed of roses when Ron was in the Whitehouse. His only talent was being an actor.
Once again, time to correct some misinformation...

Incorrect on both counts. Just as incorrect as Reagan "ignoring" AIDS.

Saying I am wrong doesn't make it so. The links I presented completely refute the claim that lowering tax rates increases revenue.

After the second tax cut (in 1983), government revenue increased..
