Trump: God, I LOVE Reaganomics!
economic strategy in which the tax burden is shifted away from big corporations and the wealthy and put on the middle class while dramatically increasing spending on things like military hardware thus creating massive budget deficits which are later used as an excuse to cut funding for social programs
Reaganomics was a devious plot to destroy the middle class and usher in a new era of neo-feudalism
Economic plan developed by President Ronald "Bonzo" Reagan in the 1980s based on some squiggles drawn on a napkin. Based on the entirely logical presumption that less money equals more money.
"Hey, Ron, let's lower taxes on the rich, cut funding for education/healthcare/anything important, then spend so much on useless crap like missiles that we end up in debt for the rest of our lives and those damn Boomers can't have their social security."
"Good choice, Ron. We'll call it Reaganomics."
Reaganomics shifted the tax burden from the wealthy to the middle class, real income plummeted for most Americans while CEO salaries and the national debt sored!
1. Reduce the growth of government spending.
2. Reduce marginal tax rates on income from labor and capital.
3. Reduce regulation.
4. Control the money supply to reduce inflation.
These are the four basic principals of Reaganomics.

My girl and I love Reaganomics, but my poor carpet doesn't.
A program of across the board tax cuts in order to produce growth in an economy. It worked very well in the 1980s. GNP and real incomes rose in the 1980s. It was theorized by economist, Arthur Laffer, that government revenue would grow if taxes were cut on the across the board including the wealthy. Revenue rose sharply in the 1980s. However, spending rose faster.
Often, misrepresented as stealing from the poor and giving the rich. If you cut taxes, it is only right to lower taxes on the wealthy who pay taxes.
