    1984 was actually a VERY important election as Reagan defeated Mondale, who wanted to raise taxes to close what were at that time by far the largest federal budget deficits in the naton’s history. By rewarding Reagan for his reckless fiscal policies and proving that politically at least “deficits didn’t matter” in the infamous words of Dick Cheney, the voters set the precedent of America trying to have its cake and eat it too, bringing us to where we are today: on the precipice of fiscal ruin.
