How Grateful, Exactly?

From USA Today:

Bill would put Reagan on map, again, in D.C.

Rep. Henry Bonilla, R-Texas, wants to change 16th Street Northwest into Ronald Reagan Boulevard. His bill is part of a nationwide campaign to honor Reagan that has so far resulted in the naming of 65 streets and places and an aircraft carrier. "Most people agree that Ronald Reagan was an American icon," Bonilla said. "He deserves an honor in the nation's capital."

[Washington, D.C. mayor Anthondy Williams] estimated that it would cost $1 million to change signs and maps. He suggested that Bonilla rename a street for Reagan back home in San Antonio.

Heh, good snark, Mayor.

An airport, emergency room and several buildings in the D.C. area -- not to mention an aircraft carrier and 65 highways and structures across the country -- have already been named after the late president at no small expense, due mainly to the efforts of The Ronald Reagan Legacy Project.

The project's motto is "a grateful nation must remember". How much more grateful should the nation get?

How about the United States of Reagan's America? Would that be enough?
