Here’s the sad fact:
- You HATE Thomas Sowell because he’s a BLACK conservative.
- You are the Democrat Party of slavery, of the KKK and Jim Crow,
- You belong to the party that destroyed Detroit MI, once the industrial capital of the world.
- Your current Keynesian economic policies have caused a constant black unemployment rate of at least 12.4
- Bill Clinton interned for J. William Fulbright (Segregationist) And named him as his mentor in his eulogy for this bigot
- Hillary Clinton’s inspiration Margaret Sanger “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population” she was also a Nazi sympathizer.
David Stockman, who was Reagan’s budget director coined the term trickle-down. He was fired and later became a Democrat. He was and is the only republican to ever use that term.
- Only Democrat propagandists like you use the term trickle-down.
The two accusations most consistently directed at the Reagan administration are:
(1) that it hurt the poor (and the middle class) and
(2) that it increased the gap between the rich and the poor.
- 20 million new jobs were created
- Inflation dropped from 13.5% in 1980 to 4.1% by 1988
- Unemployment fell from 7.6% to 5.5%
- Net worth of families earning between $20,000 and $50,000 annually grew by 27%
- Real gross national product rose 26%
- The prime interest rate was slashed by more than half, from an unprecedented 21.5% in January 1981 to 10% in August 1988
The Census Bureau, Money, Income and Poverty Status in the United States, 1988 (Series P-60, No. 166). This record shows, in sum, that the Reagan administration did far better for the poor than did the Carter administration. In particular, the economic achievements of black Americans reached all-time highs.
- In 2004, President George W. Bush signed the D.C. School Choice Incentive Act of 2003, creating the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program to provide scholarships to students from low-income families to attend a private school of choice.
- The program targeted 2,000 children from low-income families in Washington D.C. These children were given funding to help offset the cost of private schooling.
- In 2008, the program funded attendance at 54 D.C. private schools for students from families with an average income of $22,736, “or about 107 percent of the federal poverty level for a family of four.”
- In 2009 the program faced a phase out with President Barack Obama’s 2009 budget proposal cutting all funding for the program and including language to prohibit any new students from receiving scholarships.
