JFK on Taxes

No, no, not John F. Kerry, the current Democratic candidate for president, but John F. Kennedy (D) made many statements on taxes. Many, if not most, of them can be taken to heart by today's anti-taxers. Today's WorldNetDaily contains a list of them which come from the book, "The Interesting History of Income Tax," written by William Federer. (information on purchasing the book is available at the WND link) In a September 18, 1963 radio and television address on his tax-cut bill, he said the following:

"A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced federal budget. Every taxpayer and his family will have more money left over after taxes for a new car, a new home, new conveniences, education and investment. Every businessman can keep a higher percentage of his profits in his cash register or put it to work expanding or improving his business, and as the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues."
