"By contrast, President Reagan was sworn into office on Jan. 20, 1981 and left office eight years later on Jan. 20, 1989. At the end of fiscal 1980, four months before Reagan was inaugurated, the federal debt held by the public was $711.9 billion, according to CBO. At the end of fiscal 1989, eight months after Reagan left office, the federal debt held by the public was $2.1907 trillion. "
I wonder if the author of this article wrote an article about Reagan more than doubling the amount of cumulative debt that every one of the preisdents had built before him??
It's like people just don't pay attention to historical facts, better to twist around words and numbers to motivate a personal agenda.
