It seems that we often hear conservatives speaking very highly of Reagan and claiming his presidency as the "golden days" of our country. It is my opinion that Reagan's policies were detrimental to our economy, and to the middle class. I would love to debate anyone who is willing. You can either treat the first round as an acceptance round, or you can make your opening statement.

Hi! I really look forward to this debate and seeing the different points of view on this issue. To start off, I will begin with some numbers. While holding the office and title of President of the United States, 20 million new jobs were created, inflation () dropped from 13.5% to 4.1%, unemployment went from 7.6% to 5.5%, the net worth of families between $20,000-$50,000 (basically the lower middle class/middle class) grew by 27% annually, the real gross national product rose by 26%, and the prime interest rate went from 21.5% to 10% in 8 years. The numbers do not lie. These numbers come from https://www.reaganfoundation.org...
