President Reagan launched his effort to return America to greatness with simple but profound words during his first inaugural speech, “In the present times Government is not the solution to our problems. Government is the problem.”
From there he put words into action passing historic tax cuts, cutting back on onerous government regulations and the results of the President’s free market policies: Growth, Prosperity, and Hope.
Happy Birthday President Reagan – we miss you!
