    1. Ronald Reagan was AWFUL.

    The golden boy and savior of the Republican Party, Ronald Reagan , is often made out to be the best thing this country has had in our history. What you won’t hear on right-wing TV and radio like Fox News and Rush Limbaugh is that Reagan nearly tripled the national debt.

    2. Universal Health Care could have happened in 1993.

    In 1993 health care reform was all the rage. President Bill Clinton placed his wife, the First Lady Hillary Clinton, as the face of the program. Promising all Americans to finally receive the care that many other nations had, Hilary Clinton tried to drive this message home not just to average Americans but also spent plenty of time in Congress.

    3. Medicare should be covering all of us by now, if LBJ had his way.

    In 1965, when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Social Security Act of 1965 as add-ons to the existing Social Security bill, he had in mind full universal health care for all Americans.

    4. ”Big” government is NOT the problem.

    From moderates to extremists, every conservative can agree on one thing. Government is the enemy. From Ronald Reagan’s famous quote to the loud mouths on talk radio, the idea of Government in your life has been drilled into people’s heads as a negative. What most of these Americans don’t realize is how much they use and like a strong government.

    5. The Bush Tax Cuts are even worse than you thought.

    Continuing on with “Reaganomics”, George Bush enacted his “Bush Tax Cuts” in 2001 and 2003. According to the non-partisan Congressional Research Service, they estimated a loss in revenue over a 10 year period of just under $3 trillion. If you include the interest that needs to be paid, you can add another $606 billion, for a total of $3.6 trillion.

    LOL, addictinginfo??

    And believe me...we see that you lefties live in a CONSTANT state of anger, so these here won't make much of a difference.

    What we do see is the lefts LOVE OF A NANNY GOVERMENT though. And of COURSE to get your UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE, you have to use the GOVERNMENT to FORCE and STEAL other peoples monies to PAY FOR IT, but they don't have a problem with that either.

    Awww...come on....

    Looking at the way you have responded to my posts in the past?

    You already viewed me as a schmuck.

    So....

    "this CONFIRMS you are a schmuck"

    ...is what you should have said.

    Ronald Reagan took the republican party into the insane mind frame they now have.

    He taught them it was good for their party to hate poor people and ignore facts
