9. That is because our Government had not been Reaganized yet.

Once old smiling Ronny got into the White House in 1981, this country took a horrendous turn to the right. It had been drifting that way for over a decade, but Ronny gave it a shove. Union busting, anti-labor, encouraged corporations to worry only about the bottom line. Pension, health care and wages all became stagnant or lost. Most of our manufacturing was shipped over seas for the cheap labor, but funny, the prices of products never came down. The American worker was doomed. It did not happen over night, but by the time Bush Jr. got down with us, it was all but over.
