Opinions are...

Reagan was a "stick in the mud" conservative who didn't want change.
Economics would have meant moving to it, to keep up with the rest of
the world.

Economics meant it would have cost the govt a TON of money to change over.

Arguments can be made for LONG-term savings, but the reality is, short term it would be a huge expense.

The longer the wait, the greater the long term cost of remaining with an obsolete system. Regardless, my opinion of Reagan stands. He demonstrated similar behavior on other issues too. He was an old geezer who liked things the way they were, progress be damned.
