Ronald Reagan

2009/04/15

Reagan Myth one: he lowered taxes. This is not true. He did lower marginal income tax rates a benefit that accrued to those with the highest incomes. Then — ELEVEN TIMES — he raised taxes.

The net effect was to raise taxes across the board, while narrowing the gap between what the haves and have not’s paid.

What other Reagan myth’s would people like to hear about?

Financial Follies: Is the Fed Encouraging Credit Card Company Foot-Dragging?

2009/02/26


The financiers all know, or know of each other. Additionally there is an extreme bias toward capital and away from labor. The Right is never concerned about “moral hazard” when high stakes white collar theft is the issue.
