Sounds like someone looking to vindicate his life viewpoints; looking to rescue his legacy. If he can claim that Reagan’s model was no better, that makes his own catastrophic failure seem less so. Beware this ‘new model,’ however, for it bares a striking resemblance to an old one. It’s called socialism.
The “resemblance” should be clear to everyone. We are looking at it. Communism will control our country if changes are made and made fast.
