    Lets play a game, the game is called, back up your claims with links, and quotes posted from the links.

    You NEVER EVER play this game so I will show you how to play...

    Firs off I will back up the claim about tax INCREASES

    In the period since 1968, the study said, "the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982 was the biggest increase." That was the tax increase signed by Ronald Reagan, rescinding some of the effects of his huge tax cut passed the year before. http://www.factcheck.org/treasury_ta..._increase.html

    Reagan deficit claim backed up...

    Obama largest tax cut in history...

    Here is a little fun fact that is really bad news for Republicans hoping to run against Barack Obama and the stimulus package in 2010 and beyond. The Obama tax cut is $282 billion which is larger than the tax cuts of Ronald Reagan, JFK, and George W. Bush. Even worse, Republicans voted against it.

    "The federal payroll was larger in 1989 than it had been in 1981," Richard Gamble wrote last month in American Conservative magazine.

    To be sure, Mr. Reagan's failure to curb the cost of government reflected the enduring difficulty all presidents face in balancing the government services Americans want with the taxes they're willing to pay. But today it seems, increasingly, that it was Mr. Reagan and his admirer, George W. Bush, who contributed most to the problem of runaway spending, at least among recent presidents.

    Yes. It's called an inflation tax and Satan's boy doesn't understand how that hurts all working class Americans.

    I thought Obama was working to help them?

    The repubs always claim the DEm policies will hurt the nation...turns out the exact opposite happens, your cred is history, we were told by the GOP that Clintons deficit reduction plan would destroy the nation, instead it brought us record back to back surpluses.

    Yes. Tax Revenues increased under Reagan. Dem controlled Congress just spent even more. You can blame miltary spending on Reagan, but it broke the backs of the Soviet Union and ended the Cold War. I'll take deficit spending if it can accomplish that.
