Of course, the primary cause of that was the military build-up that basically bankrupted the Soviet Union and helped us win the Cold War.

That, and the deregulation induced financial crisis which cause bank failures out the whazoo. Papa Bush's bailout of the S&Ls added a whopping TRILLION dollars to our national debt. And the weasel bankers have no intention of paying back the taxpayers like Iaccoca and Chrysler did. I bet SOB's (son of bush) bailout of the airlines isn't going to be paid back either.) Gotta hand it to Ronald Reagan! At least the industries he bailed out had the good ethics to pay-back the taxpayers when their business conditions improved! Bush family cronies just take the money and run.

the Congresses of the 80's caused the deficit, they write the budget. Reagan never got the spending cuts he asked for. Revenue doubled after the tax cuts.
