Tribute to Taxpayer Icon Jack Kemp 4 May, 2009Posted by David Anderson in Tributes.
Secretary Jack Kemp was a titan of American politics, movement conservatism, and the tax reform movement. His lose to us is enormous. Secretary Kemp was by all account a fabulous human being who cared for both the rich and poor with equal fervor. He reached out to people of both minority and majority populations with equal ease. He could speak to the heart of people regardless of what label others would stick on them.
People who want to know what the Republican party should do for its future should look back to Jack Kemp. His brand of conservatism left no one behind not the poor, the unborn, the businessman, the minorities, the married family, or the single parent.
Jack Kemp’s vision helped build the party from a small minority to a majority party. His ideas became a platform from which we reached heights that we thought we would not reach. He was the statesman who remembered the true forgotten man– the American taxpayer.
May God comfort Joanne and the Kemp family.
