Polishmama, essentially what Reagan did was to pull out all the stops of American history's rampant individualism!! He basically encouraged bullying by bosses, corporate greed, by, in his own words, "getting gov't. off of the backs of the American people...." (to thunderous applause from the business community, by the way!) and the slow, imminent destruction of Roosevelt's New Deal, precisely what Republicans aim to do now as we speak! Reagan appealed, and brilliantly I must say, to a new breed of businessmen -and women, tired of fair play. Reagan was the new Potter of "It's a Wonderful Life" (1947) with Lames Stewart and Donna Reed, with ol' Lionel Barrymore himself as the greedy, scroog-like Potter who (in HIS own words from the movie, "didn't want a lazy rabble, but a thrifty working class".).
Those who will vote down the Obamacare Bill, want the same thing; the already rich get richer, no Roosevelt-style conscience for the rest of America, and the middle-class??? DROP DEAD!!
