Additional Details:
President Ronald Reagan swept into office January 20, 1981 with a full slate of dramatic steps to reverse former policies. Reagan's election promises include: giving the reins to a free market economy to combat high unemployment and inflation; tax cuts totaling 30% over three years; balanced federal budget; and repeat of "red tape". Reagan's old fashioned medicine will control growth in government spending. He will stimulate savings, production, and employment by cutting taxes. He wants to abolish "waste, extravagance, abuse and outright fraud", abolish some departments and federal price controls. He'll accelerate leasing of federal lands for energy explorations, relax enforcement of environmental regulations, and keep regulatory agencies from "harassing small business." January 20, 1981
