Ronald Reagan and the Debt Ceiling

Could it be? He wanted to raise the debt ceiling too? Did he use “scare tactics?” I don’t know, GOP. Maybe you should support raising of the debt ceiling instead of holding it hostage until you get your ransom. Zombie Reagan might come after you.

Thanks to Dusty at Leftwing Nutjob for this clip.

    Reagan also said that the government was like a kid who spends and spends his allowance on dum stuff, and the only way to stop him is to cut his allowance. So cut taxes so the government doesn’t have it to spend…….

    Good philosophy, really. But then I see a problem. The loud-mouth conservatives claim that revenue increased after Bush cut taxes………….

    One reason I left the party. All the lies and contradictions that only idiots believe.
