Skip to comments.New York Times Thinks Ronald Reagan Was Responsible for Jimmy Carter's Income Tax Rates

Public debate over taxes has typically focused on the federal income tax, but that now accounts for less than a third of the total tax revenues collected by federal, state and local governments. To analyze the total burden, The Times created a model, in consultation with experts, which estimated total tax bills for each taxpayer in each year from 1980, when the election of President Ronald Reagan opened an era of tax cutting, up to 2010, the most recent year for which relevant data is available.

The old saying comes to mind: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”
The News that ain’t fit to print.
“Who was president in 1980? Jimmmy Carter. When did Reagan take office? January 1981.”
There are delusional liberals out there who actually blame California’s current fiscal mess on Governer Reagan even though it’s been 4 decades since he was Governer. We’re not exactly dealing with rational/sane minds.
Did you know during the time when French resistance was at its peak Vichy sympathtic publications had their vending stalls set on fire or doused with smelly water.
With the Times, it’s always Back to the Future.
Halcyon days when people actually read the paper and even paid attention.
I saw the same thing and was ranting about it to my wife this AM. What a crock.
There is now no way out of this. With Romney in the W.H. there would have been a chance. With the Dems in control of the W.H. and Senate no real cuts are coming to the Federal budget Geithner has already showed that. There will only be posturing, finger pointing and grossly twisted half truths spun to the point of absurdity. The Government is a beast that will insist on being fed. The tax burden is going to increase on everyone either directly or indirectly, it will happen but real cuts won’t.
It worked for Obama some people are just stupid that way.
It’s seared into their memories.
