I mean asides from being the first republican in ages to win two terms, and technically ending the cold war (i use that very loosely), i dont get it. Why is he so great
It gave more power and money to the BUSINESS OWNERS not just corporations, which in turn allowed them to create jobs hence why Reagan still has the highest average annual percentage of jobs created over his two terms than any President in the history of the United States sans Clinton. THAT IS working for the people.
Government programs under Reagan were cut, too. He didn't cater to those looking for a handout and firmly believed, and I quote, "The best social program is a job.".
