True or false: Reagan was a hypocrite.?

Reagan, the so called champion of limited government, couldn't be farther from the truth. Sure, he greatly lowered taxes on the wealthiest Americans. By all means, he was against any government intervention that would hurt the top 1%, and any intervention that would help the 99%. But he was certainly for government regulation that hurts the poor and middle class. He greatly expanded the war on freedom (Drugs), skyrocketting the incarcerated population of the US. He brought the debt up to record levels, never to be reversed again by future presidents. The qaulity of life for the lower and middle class was stagnant or decreasing ever since, while the top 1% are making record profits. He even raised taxes multiple times on the poor to pay for tax holidays for the rich. I recommend you do your homework, and stop listening to FAUX news. Reagan won because Carter told the truth about how his plan would temporarily hurt, for the benefit of future generations. He won because he talked louder, and because the American people are stupid.

He created the dreaded Reaganomics, one of the most harmful US economic plans really ever. And he wrote a "thank you" note to Rush Limbaugh, telling him he was a 'national hero'. Notice I'm not even talking about his presidency.
