Merry Christmas: This Tax Increase is for You, America

I never argued that Reagan lowered spending (albeit, it's a fact that the Dem Congress approved more spending that Reagan's budgets in every year). That Reagan cut taxes substantially and the adjustments (most of which were adjustments to the tax cuts passed the previous year) amounted to less than 20% of the cuts and the military build up (begun under Carter) paid Soviet dividends (as even Russian economists concede). Still trying to maintain the silly pretense that you're well read?

Let’s cut right to the end of the story: Ordinary people have already tumbled off the precipice.

There will be no dramatic rescue at the height of the tension, with crashing, ominous music turning to a sunshine ditty, a government handout straining to reach you, to save you from tumbling over the lip of the cliff.

Instead the government is going to intentionally bump into you, making it look like an accident, head turned away, mumbling an apology, much like a pick-pocket does in a crowd, with the object to lift your wallet.      

So, yes; however much they...
