Don't blame Reagan for the failure of the presidents who followed him. If the Bushes had followed his example and stood up to the Democrats, we would not be in this place right now. If the people had not voted in a Democrat congress that had control for years and spent and spent and stole from social security we would not be in this fiscal disaster we are living through. That's a lot of "ifs." The question is, what are we as a people going to do about it? Will we continually vote in people who don't know how to make a budget? Obama failed basic economics so don't expect anything from him.
