Bottom Line: A Comedy Revue with Music on Reagonomics

Bottom Line: A Comedy Revue with Music on Reagonomics

“Welcome to the bottom line…where there ain’t no further down to climb.” This political satire looks at how the Reagan administration “put foxes in charge of all the chicken coops” (referring to scandals at the Environmental Protection Agency during his term in office); how a President, in accordance with the Taft-Hartley Act, can call off a union strike and blacklist all participants; and how the vast production of new chemicals (all commercially “necessary”) can’t possibly be checked with all of the proper safety tests—as a result, we are putting our health in danger.
