Democrats and Memory Holes
I have been neglecting this blog horribly, with a comment from a prior post yet to be answered. But with more health care stuff going on in the family tomorrow, it may take a bit longer to get back to my normal routine.
I couldn't let this story pass without comment, though. I was yelling at the television earlier when I saw the Democratic talking heads out there trying to use Ronald Reagan in the current budget impasse. "Reagan was willing to compromise and raise taxes."
Thank God for Michael Reagan, who (in the linked article) reminds us that the Democrats in Reagan's day reneged on spending cuts they had promised when Reagan was forced into the tax increases. The spending cuts never happened. We ought to remember that and shout it from the housetops.
Because they'll do it again. Count on it.
