The GOP Contract With Corporate America


















As the 112th Congress is about to convene, it behooves to consider the icon of modern Republicanism, St. Ron.

“Reagan nearly tripled the deficit in his eight years, and never made a realistic proposal for cutting it. As the biographer Lou Cannon noted, it was unfair for critics to say that Reagan was trying to balance the budget on the backs of the poor, since ‘he never seriously attempted to balance the budget at all.’ ”
-- Garry Wills, "Reagan’s America”

A tip of the Mirsky hat to the Internet Weekly Report for the "Contract with Corporate America."
