It would be a fitting tribute, would it not?
In the rush to name things after Ronald Reagan, especially stuff he screwed up (“Ronald Reagan National Airport” after he fired thousands of air traffic controllers and made our airways much less safe), could we not aim for appropriate memorials?
One of Ronald Reagan’s biggest legacies is his multiplying the national debt. Reagan’s supporters want to name a mountain somewhere after him — how about the mountain of debt, which is everywhere?
Perhaps we could name it in his honor: The Ronald W. Reagan Memorial National Debt. Just imagine how that would change the tone and direction of discussions on spending and taxes in Washington and the state capitals.
What Republican could possibly vote against the “Ronald W. Reagan Memorial National Debt Ceiling Raising Act?”
Who will start the petition? Maybe Grover Norquist?
