Two compromises that Reagan had to make with the Democratic Congress. He was promised 3 dollars in spending cuts for every 1 dollar in tax increases. He got the tax increases, but the cuts never showed up. He was promised strict enforcement for the 1986 amnesty for 1 million illegals. He got an amnesty that ended up covering 3 million illegals but the lack of enforcement ended up with 10 times more illegals here now. It also didn't help with the Hispanic vote. The Republicans got 34% in 1984 and then it went DOWN to 30% in 1988. Learn from what has ALREADY happened.
