My new hobby is taking graphs of economic data over time and indicating the year that Ronald Reagan was inaugurated, in case people find that helpful or informative.

Oops. Forgot to add my favorite one. "Total Public Debt as Percent of GDP," or as I like to call it, "Thanks, Ronnie!"

Seriously, though. I don't think Reagan and "Trickle Down" get nearly enough credit for how they led to the economic and moral bankruptcy in this country. We need to bring back the pre-Reagan tax structure in this country.

Funny how the slogan "Make America Great Again" never acknowledges that the era of "greatness" they all want to return to had top tax rates more than double what they are now.

Of course there were structural shifts that started in the 70s so any graph plotted today would look like Reagan was to blame. Certainly not defending Reagan or Stockman, but am I not sure you can draw conclusions from these.

What does Ronald Reagan have to do with tuition at the University of Illinois?

My entire family of die-hard GOP voters worked their way through U of I, and still insist that anyone can pay their way through college with hard work. That one was aimed squarely at them.

Reagan ruined everything and it was completely predictable that he would.
