Jack Kemp, R.I.P.

Posted: May 3, 2009 by lamayor in R.I.P.


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.
