Truth Is Offensive
Paul Craig Roberts
April 1, 2013
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts is the father of Reaganomics and the former head of policy at the Department of Treasury. He is a columnist and was previously the editor of the Wall Street Journal. His latest book, How the Economy Was Lost: The War of the Worlds, details why America is disintegrating.
Read it and tell me do you think of it?

"the father of Reaganomics"
Reagonomics? Isn't that where Reagan tripled the national debt, from 900 mill to 2.7 trillion?
And had the largest working class tax increase in history when he doubled the payroll tax? One of 11 Reagan tax hikes, all hitting the middle class while shoveling loot to the wealthy?
Why would anyone read a freak like that, someone who constantly attacks the middle class working American, on a silly fringe, tinfoil hat website like NN or infowars?

being the father of Reaganomics is nothing to brag about, rather something to be ashamed of. Supply side economics were ridiculous in that just because a lot of product is produced, there really is no guarantee the product will be bought. That was so naive, along the lines of "if you build it, they will come".
Why would I want to read anything by this clown?

the article wasn't about Reagan. As for your comment about Reaganomics, I don't know that Paul would say the Reagan Administration did a good job on the economy front either. Paul was an advisor. He wasn't President. After all, Reagan promised to downsize government (EX. He said he would get rid of the Dept. of Education and the Dept. of Energy during his campaign and he did neither in 8 years.) This article was about how the "truth" is considered a bad word these days. I suggest you read the article before you make another comment.
