“Our true choice is not between tax reduction, on the one hand, and the avoidance of large federal deficits on the other. It is increasingly clear that no matter what party is in power, so long as our [needs] keep rising, an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough revenues to balance our budget—just as it will never produce enough jobs or enough profits.'”

    It’s funny, but as different as the average person would consider Kennedy and Reagan to have been, they still shared a base of common sense, decency and fairness. — Tony

      Yes, in terms of rhetoric and public persona, but perhaps less so in private comportment for JFK.
