Schumer Attempts to Bury Reagan Legacy
Posted by Mike on November 29, 2006
Chuck Schumer has declared an end to Reaganomics. In terms of policy, Schumer is dead wrong. Reaganomics is alive and well, hence our current prosperity. As it relates to the 2006 election, Schumer is right. Unfortunately it was the Republicans who killed it. Since President Bush’s re-election, there has been no ongoing defense of our noble war effort, no further tax relief, no serious attempt to make the prior tax cuts permanent, and spending is through the roof. The only repeat performance from the Reagan years was a pathetic attempt at amnesty. I doubt Reagan would grant amnesty under present circumstances. Reagan’s political legacy is not looking too good right now.
Thankfully, the Reagan legacy is like a phoenix. It burns to ashes at some points (1992, 1996) only to return again (1994, 2000). It’s a shame that we just saw the Reagan legacy on a burning day.
