Lol, blaming Reagan for something Biden did.Yeah, it was the trend at the time from the Reaganite pledge to jail everyone in the US to make sure they obeyed the law and part of the Drug War penalty phase. It's also known as "tough love"...Along with the million man police force for the police state of America....The only thing Biden can claim is signing the bill in the 90's that put millions of minorities in jail.And you guys said that AP was fake news and now you are justifying their actions.Live the vaccine, he’s gotta steal from the accomplishments of others. 50 years and zero accomplishments, it’s all he has.
