Our "Reagan Ruined Everything" t-shirt gets right to the point. Many of the reasons the USA is in dire straits is due to Reaganomics and bad decisions the former President did in favor of big business, the rich, and for politicians. He even encouraged the disastrous buying and selling of bonds from shell companies. Not to forget, he allowed the A.I.D.S. pandemic to go on without acknowledging it for many years during his Presidency.
From the time of the Great Depression to the end of Carter's Presidency, things in the U.S. changed a lot. Then, Ronald Reagan came along, and things changed again.
When the Great Depression hit, it really shook up the country. The government made some big changes, like not tying money to gold anymore. This allowed the government to have more control over money. Under FDR, the government started creating jobs for people. This made a time where people looked to the government to help make their lives better.
After we won World War II, everyone felt more united. So, the government decided to change a lot of things in the country. They built suburbs, which created lots of jobs. They also supported labor unions, which helped more people be part of the middle class. The government used a way of managing the economy called Keynesian economics to keep people employed and the country doing well. They also created programs like Social Security and Medicare to help Americans who needed support. The Civil Rights movement opened up more opportunities for African Americans, and women were encouraged to work.
But there were some problems building up. We started needing to buy a lot of oil from other countries. We lost the war in Vietnam, which made us feel less like a superpower. In the '60s and '70s, there were big social changes. Also, the prices of things started going up a lot because of rising oil prices and demands for higher pay.
By 1980, people were pretty unhappy, and they voted for Ronald Reagan. He changed a lot of things. He thought the government was doing more harm than good. He didn't like labor unions, and he even fired people who were on strike. Reagan wanted businesses to have more freedom, so he cut taxes for rich people, let banks do more things without rules, and made it easier for companies to move jobs to other countries.
Some of the problems we face today come from what Reagan did. Without strong labor unions, many people in the working class can't afford to live a middle-class life. The country has money problems because it doesn't collect enough taxes. We also buy more things from other countries than we sell, which causes more problems. The prices of homes and other things are really high because of certain financial practices.
Whether Reagan helped or hurt the U.S. depends on where you are in society. Some people did well with his changes, paying less in taxes and benefiting from other things. But if you didn't start off with the same opportunities, things got worse. If you worked in a factory, your job might have gone to another country, and you might not have recovered from that. Many cities lost big employers, and you might have spent your life working in lower-paying jobs without much security. For these people, Reagan's changes made the country worse than they thought it would be when they were young and voted for him.
Another thing Everybody knows about how Reagan made the drinking age 21 everywhere in the U.S. He did something sneaky with the state governors. First, he said they could pick any drinking age they liked. Then, he sent them a letter saying he would stop giving them money for fixing highways until they made the drinking age 21. In the end, all 50 states agreed, and that's why the drinking age is the same across the whole country. This happened around the same time Reagan was pushing the idea that helping rich people more would make things better for everyone else, but it didn't work out that way. The idea was that if the rich got more money, it would somehow benefit everyone else, but it mostly just helped the wealthy and left the poor and working class in a tough spot.

(Just look at Florida's Turnpike and you will understand why it's called the Ronald Reagan Turnpike)

Reagan also became famous for spreading a big idea that still shapes the Republican Party today: trickle-down economics. But it's not true. When rich people or big companies get more money, there's no guarantee they'll use it to create new businesses. In fact, if you want them to invest in their businesses, you should tax their profits more. That way, they'll spend the money to grow and improve their businesses to show less profit.
Another thing Reagan did, which I find even worse, is getting rid of the Fairness Doctrine. This was a rule from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that started in 1949. It said that TV and radio stations had to present important public issues in a fair and honest way. Without this rule, news outlets can spread lies and promote dishonest ideas. In the past four years, especially, we've seen a lot of this. It's making the gap between left and right even wider, and it might keep getting worse unless something changes. The recent attack on the Capitol and the efforts to cause violence around the inauguration show that we might be close to a breaking point.
All this basically enforces the statement tee, "Reagan Ruined Everything", the t-shirt that some of that trickled down econmoics money might be able to allow you to snag one today.
