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

The actual fact will be, in almost every case, that the whole tax will be borne either by the employe [sic] or by the consumer through higher prices. That is the history of all such taxes. This is because the tax is imposed in such a way that, if the employer is to stay in business, he must shift the tax to some one else.

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