"Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it..."
Even President George H.W. Bush (the smart one) called it "voodoo economics." If he meant that Reagan was sticking pins into this nation's future, he couldn't have been more accurate. The financial crap hole in which we now find ourselves has its roots in the economic policies of the Reagan administration.
The Reagan legacy is the reason why today only 1% of the people control 90% of the wealth and now that the conservative Supreme Court has deemed that corporations are essentially people and have the same rights, things are going to get worse -- much worse -- before they get better.
