The Senate will honor President Reagan on Thursday with a two-hour tribute to mark what would have been his 100th birthday on Feb. 6.
The Senate tribute is just one of several events that will mark the Reagan centennial; more than two dozen members of the House are expected to honor Reagan in floor remarks on Feb. 9.
Thursday’s Senate speeches will begin at 1 p.m., starting with 10-minute remarks from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who serves on the Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission. Another Democrat, Sen. Jim Webb (Va.), who was secretary of the Navy under Reagan, is also on the commission and will also speak.
What. The. F**k?!
Maybe one of the Democratic Senators speaking will have the balls to point out that Reagan tripled the national debt, passed the one of the largest tax increases in history, was a mean-spirited, unabashed race-baiter, planted the seeds of some of the worst economic crises in our history, and put us on a path to plutocracy.
