Ronald Reagan with David StockmanDavid Stockman was on "UP With Chris Hayes" this weekend. At the end of every show Hayes asks his guests the question "What should people know".
As President President Reagan’s director of the Office of Management and Budget I think Stockman's answer was very telling. He said that "three big things need to be changed".
Here are the three he listed...
1) "We need to dismantle the WARfare state and get out of all of these adventurisms"
2) "We need to raise taxes across the board"
3) "We need to get rid of discretionary (spending) activities such as the agricultural department"
The first two of these three seem completely antithetical to today's Republican party to such a degree that if Regan dare utter them he would be labeled a socialist and anti-American.
You tell 'em Ronny!
