Product Description
In 1980, confidence in the American economy and government hit rock bottom. Looking for a change and the promise of a better future, voters turned to Ronald Reagan for answers.

His message was clear:
Government has become too big and needs to be trimmed down to size.
Taxes are insanely high and need to be cut to stimulate growth and investment.
Military spending should be increased to fix the degenerating state of the American war machine.
Morality and character need to be reemphasized in American life.
The United States is still the largest superpower in the world with the best system of government. It's time to feel good about being an American again.

The national debt tripled from 1 to 3 trillion dollars during the Reagan Years. The President and conservatives in Congress cried for a balanced budget amendment, but neither branch had the discipline to propose or enact a balanced budget. The growth that Americans enjoyed during the 1980s came at a huge price for the generations to follow.
