Forgot Reagan?

San Luis ObispoJanuary 17, 2014 

I am always struck by Mr. Paul Pobor’s letters that the “left” has ruined our country.

His long-term memory must have forgotten the Reagan years of trickledown economics (not to mention closing mental health and halfway house facilities, ignoring the AIDS epidemic and that “little business” of Iran-Contra). And need anyone forget the disastrous Bush years, which, as a country, we are still paying for — two immoral wars that have robbed his personal America of infrastructure money, and so much more, and forever tarnishing the America that belongs to all of us.
