A ONE-SENTENCE SATIRE ON THE NATURE OF GOVERNMENT.

In this otherwise sober and factual Wikipedia article, a clever editor’s dry wit flies low enough to slip under the controversy radar:

Reagan’s economic policies (dubbed “Reaganomics”) and the implementation of the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981 called for sharply reduced federal budgets, sharply reduced federal regulation of businesses, and sharp cuts in the federal income tax rates, the latter two of which were partially achieved.

This is not a partisan satire, of course; it is simply in the nature of government that taxes and regulation can be cut but overall spending cannot.
