Washington: Ruled By Democrats and Reagan’s Ghost

This fascinates me; why, after multiple demonstrations of its abject failure, is Reaganism still alive and kicking?

Washington, it seems, is still ruled by Reaganism — by an ideology
that says government intervention is always bad, and leaving the
private sector to its own devices is always good.

Call me naïve,
but I actually hoped that the failure of Reaganism in practice would
kill it
. It turns out, however, to be a zombie doctrine: even though it
should be dead, it keeps on coming.

It seems that the Democrats have no alternative. Until they come up with something, they’re still playing on the Republicans’ home field, no matter how big their majority gets.
