    And if we'd have had growth of say 3 or 3.5% over that period, the spending as a percent of GDP would have been WAY flatter. Denominators have consequences!

    What was misleading about Reagan spending like a drucken sailor. And his senate majority letting him do it.

    Let me try again to make this as plain as possible. The DEMOCRATS controlled the senate HALF of Reagan's presidency and controlled the House ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of his presidency. It takes BOTH houses to pass an appropriations bill. I suspect you would not see any DIFFERENCE in spending between the 4 years that the republicans controlled the senate and the democrats controlled the house and the 4 years that the democrats controlled both houses. I certainly will agree that the government spent too much money during Reagan's presidency. I will say that if you would catagorize Reagan as spending money like a drunken sailer, then I would say that our current president and curent house and senate are spending money like democrat lunitics. Oh I know it is Bush's fault, well if that is the case then it wasn't Reagan's fault, it was CARTER'S fault(a little stupidity for humor's sake-lets always blame someone else for our own failure, why not we have a gov that rewards failure and punishes success- great concept)

    You are correct. What Reagan, and the congress' of that day gave us was the concept that everybody can have anything they want and nobody needs to worry about paying for it. This legacy has been followed right up to this very week. by the current White House buffoon and Congressional Crooks.
