Reagan Record

August 27, 1986

I read with interest your article (July 24), "Reagan Uses Tough Tone on Trail," where he is still blaming big government and "Washington liberals" (Democrats) for the country's economic ills.

In his 1980 campaign he blamed big-spending Democrats for the economic woes of the nation and promised he would balance the budget by 1984.

It took 39 Presidents a total of 192 years to amass a national deficit of one trillion dollars. It took Ronald Reagan just 5 1/2 years to get the nation it's second trillion.

At the going rate of voodoo economics a third trillion of red ink deficit will become a reality by the time Reagan leaves office in 1988.

The buck does not stop at Reagan's desk as it did with Harry Truman.
