Suntan12-This is why all of the political news points to an avalanche in the 2010 mid term elections.
The American people feel that they are governed against their will and the Health care bill is a prime example. When the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi says that we will have to pass a bill to see what is in it, it makes the American people angry because these people in congress are there to represent us and our voices.
Clearly the democrats passed the bill anyway which will only create more misery for the American people and destroy the best healthcare system in the world.
President Reagan transformed the 1980s political culture. When he took office in 1980, unemployment was 10%, and interest rates were about 20% with double digit inflation. The tax rate was also 70% for the top rate.
President Reagan cut taxes to 24% for the highest tax rate, lowered interest rates to just 4% as well as inflation to 4%. In addition, the unemployment rate went down to about 4% because President Reagan tax policies allowed businesses to create 25 million new jobs.
What we need now is another President Reagan not a continuity of the Jimmy Carter administration’s policies that led Americans to have a misery index like we have now.
