So what caused us to add 14 trillion dollars in additional debt since Reagan took office? Reaganomics, Bush tax cuts, two unfunded wars, and a depression triggered by unregulated financial shenanigans.

Now you've compounded your first incorrect statement with a second: that unregulation caused the financial crash. That's also not true.

Too big to fail is codified in FIDICIA. There are several other bills that also "helped".
