|Summary||Ronald Reagan had just been triumphantly re-elected--but Jack Kemp's joy is not unconfined: "If the White House drops the ball and they think their mandate is simply to cut spending and not to get the type of economic growth that we need for this country, Kasten and Kemp and Bradley and Gephardt are going to wrest away from the White House the issue of tax reform." Mr. Kemp sometimes sounds a little too gee-whiz to be true--but the intervening years have borne out many of his predictions, even if he and his colleagues did not succeed in enacting the flat tax that was at the center of their program. An invigorating discussion of what in Messrs. Kemp and Buckley's hands is a not at all dismal science.|
