  •  I started to notice under Reagan how unfair (7+ / 0-)

    the tax code was. Maybe it was because my husband was a young accountant and we didn't get the tax relief that his millionaire clients did or the unfairness of Reagan economics. I was never very political but this changed me.

    Reagan's "catsup as a vegetable" hit home when I saw kids too poor to afford lunch at school. Our PTA donated the bread and peanut butter for their free lunch. These were kids who were not on relief. They fell between the cracks. This was so wrong. It made me a liberal.
