Government revenues doubled in the 80’s. Reagan wanted to cut the demoncratic congress reneged and blew the budget in the 80’s. Don’t blame Reagan. Learn history instead of spreading leftist lies. Do some research.

Did you actually read what I said?

I said I wasn’t actually blaming Reagan or the Republicans.

Since I have to spell it out, I actually hold the American voter most responsible for it, because politicians ultimately do what the voters want.

If Americans, in full-force back then, had contacted their congressmen and senators, threatening to throw everyone and anyone out who is not voting for responsible spending, you wouldn’t have the debt that exists today£

American democracy, moreso than most, is highly reactive to the electorate. But the electorate must be willing to act.

With great power, comes great responsibility.
