Quote – Alf Landon, the 1936 Republican nominee for president.

Do not forget this: such an excessive tax on payrolls is beyond question a tax on employment. In prosperous times it slows down the advance of wages and holds back re-employment. In bad times it increases unemployment, and unemployment breaks wage scales.

Alf Landon, the Republican nominee for president in 1936. From his speech “I Will Not Promise the Moon.”
