"For it is increasingly clear––to those in Government, business, and labor who are responsible for our economy's success––that our obsolete tax system exerts too heavy a drag on private purchasing power, profits, and employment. Designed to check inflation in earlier years, it now checks growth instead. It discourages extra effort and risk. It distorts the use of resources. It invites recurrent recessions, depresses our Federal revenues, and causes chronic budget deficit"

"No doubt a massive increase in Federal spending could also create jobs and growth, but in today's setting, private consumers, employers, and investors should be given a full opportunity first"

praising? I just thought it was ironic because Obama and the Dems are constantly espousing the benefits of tax increases and often quote Kennedy when they seek to benefit...that's all.... hardly praise but whatever
