I forgot one of the worst things Reagan did. He distroyed health and human services. He basically opened the mental hospitals. These people would later be arrested for drug offenses or left to live under a bridge. Instead of treating the mental illness, this country spends 30k a year to incarcerate them. Otherwise the mentally ill just pester society because there is no longer help for them.
Destroy health and human services. Use the war on drugs to incarcerate the mentally ill and many many more people. now you have destroyed neighborhoods and families. There is no longer a way for these people to seek help, so they will perpetually remain a burden on the system. Way to go
