Reagan economics

How Reagan destroyed the Middle Class | Before Reagan, the very richest paid at least 74% of their income in taxes and CEOs took home just 30 times what their workers did. America's middle class was created. Reagan cut taxes on the richest down to 28%. He also gutted unions and now CEOs make 373 times more than workers. Now, the Middle Class is gone and there are 10 million "working poor."
