Jack Kemp, one of my conservative heroes, passed away yesterday.  With Sen. William Roth (think IRA’s) and Kemp at his side, President Reagan signed the Kemp-Roth tax cut in 1981.  This unlikely pairing — a quarterback and actor turned politicians — produced the longest economic boom in peacetime.  They were champions of freedom brought together by history at a time when freedom and prosperity seemed on the decline.  Their faith in a confident people unleashed to create and grow should serve as an example for us today.  R.I.P.
