Reagan was a 'supply sider.'  Bush43 worried about deficits, so he was a monetarist.

They just did what was needed to get through the night.  Or through their terms.

Oops, I was thinking George H W Bush.  Sorry.  George H W Bush was probably the only Monetarist President. There were prior Republican Presidents like Eisenhower who were concerned about deficits, but Eisenhower pre-dated the existence of Monetarist theory.

If the poster is referring to Modern Monetary Theory, then yes, defacto (virtually) all Congressional Republicans are austerity favoring Monetarists when a Democrat is President, but argue at least partially based on MMT for tax cuts when a Republican is President.

As with Trump, 'just let the next guy deal with it' isn't an economic theory.

Which is great but he was hired to deal with it even though it wasn't really a problem. It may ultimately not be a problem.
