    Dems: Reagan was right about debt limit - TheHill.com

    Thoughts USMB? For those who think President Obama is fear mongering on this issue, do you believe President Reagan was in 1987 as well?

    good grief, they hate Reagan until they want to use him.

    They can't EVEN convince the people with THEIR OWN SHIT. They have to use other people..Friggen sad they are.

    Yep, Because today is exactly like back then. You know when Reagan was asking to have the Debt Ceiling Increased to 20% of GDP. That is exactly the same as today when were talking about cranking the Debt Ceiling to well over 100% of GDP.

    Yep Perfect analogy.

    I also notice how in the Dems new Add, and in here. Nobody is mentioning that other than wanting the Debt Ceiling Raised. There is Absolutely nothing else in Common between Reagan and Obama.

    Reagan Cut Taxes, Reagan understood government was the Problem not the Solution to our Economic Woes.

    You liberals are just to cute.

    Oh I think it's hilarious that the Democrats are quoting Reagan myself. I'm just wondering more so myself whether those who think President Obama is fear mongering on this issue whether President Reagan was as well.

    Personally, I don't think either of them are.

    President Obama also has cut taxes. Though President Reagan also raised taxes several times as well. Not going to ignore that, are we?

    Papa Obama and the Left raised gov't spending up to about 25% of GDP
    Historically, it has been around 20%.

    Spending is the problem
