    Oh My....Ronald Reagan, the hero worshipped by all tea baggers, raised taxes 11 times in 8 years. This is a historical FACT and whining and crying about it like all tea baggers love to do will not make this historical fact go away.

    Not only that, Reagan believed strongly in ending tax loopholes for the rich. Here's a quote from a speech Reagan gave in 1985 --

    Golly, tea baggers....what do you have to say about this?? It appears to me that if Reagan were alive today, he would agree with Obama and the Democrats and he would be calling you deranged lunatics "crazy"!!

    The tea baggers on this board ain't going to touch this topic with a 10 foot pole. :lol: Well, unless they tell their usual ridiculous lies, then they might.

    Anybody who uses the moniker "Kerry Won Ohio" is too ignorant to bother responding to.

    The fact that everything this clown posts is GARBAGE, is beside the point.

    Nothing wrong with raising taxes, as long as the people support it and its raised on everyone, not a singled out few.

    They lied. Said they would cut $2 spending for every $1 of taxes raised.

    This is precisely why Republicans dont trust Democrats any time they promise cuts for tax increases. They have never followed through a single time they've promised it.
