No, let's do get into specifics.
Reagan debt collapsed the Soviet Union and ended the Cold War. A time when the balance of power hung on a thread. Eastern Europe was grateful that Reagan called for tearing down the Berlin Wall and brought freedom not seen in Eastern Europe since before WW2.
Reagan signed amnesty on a deal with Democrats to secure the border. Democrat FAIL.
Reagan signed tax increases on a deal with Democrats to match with 2x spending cuts. Democrat FAIL
If there is any lesson here, it is to not trust Democrat Party "deals".
