The Nation Is Still Paying For Reaganomics


Readers Report

THE NATION IS STILL PAYING FOR REAGANOMICS

Regarding your article, "Deja voodoo all over again?" (News: Analysis & Commentary, Dec. 12), I was dismayed. George Santayana was right: Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to relive them.

The country is currently $4.6 trillion in debt, mostly as a result of the financial policies of the Reagan Administration. The interest payments on that huge amount have severely restricted the government's ability to operate. I sincerely hope that our new (and old) members of the Senate and House see through these flawed theories.
