No, I'm not talking about when he raised taxes after cutting them. That is well known. And despite Reagan raising taxes after he cut taxes, he is rightly known as a tax-cutting (and deficit-ballooning) President.

Are there any omissions of tax cuts he instituted that would offset these tax increases that would make this post incorrect?
