  •  Reagan's deficit spending far exceeded LBJ (2+ / 0-)

    Gerson is a liar. Reagan was arguably the most profligate spending President in US history. And he funded his deficits with debt that we are still paying.

    Reagan's policies were an extension of LBJ's 'guns and butter' policy but LBJ realized the dangers of having future generations bear the burdens of his spending. Reagan had no such qualms.

    In summary, Reagan continued the racism of Goldwater with the economics of LBJ.
