John F. Kennedy on taxes

September 14, 2011 in Uncategorized



“It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now … Cutting taxes now is not to incur a budget deficit, but to achieve the more prosperous, expanding economy which can bring a budget surplus.”

– John F. Kennedy, Nov. 20, 1962, president’s news conference

 Folks, if you want to understand how far congress and our executive branch have strayed from sound “Fiscal Responsibility”and  “Lower Taxes” you simply have to read JFK’s speeches on the issue at the following site!


Call your federal, state and local representatives and tell them we have had enough and if they expect us to vote for them in the next election they had better heed our admonition to lower our tax burden and STOP SCARING seniors and other groups with loss of benefits as a ploy to increase our debt and eventually our taxes.
