Modern Republicans HATE taxes. They think it is literally illegal to have taxes in America (hint: it is not). Reagan also raised taxes 7 out of his 8 years in office.
Reagan was the ULTIMATE borrower and tax and spend president ever. Period. Even idiot George W. did not triple the debt during his presidency, although his dollar amount is higher.
Basically, Ronald Reagan was responsible for the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history and changing the world forever, in regards to modern terrorist states.
Everybody has heard of The Iran-Contra scandal. This is ignored history by Republicans. Ronald Reagan sold weapons illegally to IRAN (yes the same one every Republican wants to use nukes on, to prevent them from using nukes). He did it to fund an illegal war via the CIA in South America. The best part is when he said he knew in his heart he didn’t do it, but the evidence says otherwise.
He personally signed the legislation. 3 million illegal immigrants were given full amnesty. Right now, even modest legislation that prevents deportation but does NOT give amnesty is grounds for impeachment. Somehow, its OK when a non-black Republican with dementia does it though.
