ROTFLOL@you The payroll tax increases became law in 1979.And again in 1983, as noted by Reagan's own economic advisor Bruce Bartlett and shown in the link you providedReagan would have had to cut payroll taxes in 1983. Like that was going to happen given the makeup of congress.No, he had no intention of cutting payroll taxes. In fact he appointed a Social Security Commission, headed by Greenspan, that recommended an increase which was passed by Congress and signed into law by Reagan.Doesn't this conversation remind you of the time when you claimed social spending is more than 40% of the budget?Derek
