'The day the middle class died'

Official Portrait of President Ronald ReaganImage via Wikipedia

Filmmaker Michael Moore has posted a video as a chilling reminder of the destructive presidency of Ronald Reagan, right.

You can see how Governor Christie, congressional Republicans and rabid Tea Party loyalists are carrying on the work of our first and hopefully last company spokesman-actor-president.

You remember "trickle-down economics," don't you?

In retrospect, that theory could have been called "tepid discharges from a douche bag."

I was part of a team of reporters at The Record that documented the cuts to social programs during the Reagan presidency.

As today, all those holier-than-thou Republicans loved to cut Head Start and other programs for minority children.

Here is a link to the YouTube video:
