Reagan - RINO

As sad, and scary,  as it may seem the ole' Gipper would be a Republican-in-Name-Only in today's GOP... note this quote from Reagan in 1985, highlighted in this piece @ Common Dreams:

"We're going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that have allowed some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying 10 percent of his salary, and that's crazy. It's time we stopped it."

Today Obama's called a Socialist for his similarly modest proposal...
