On Friday, August 12, 2011 Young America’s Foundation will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the largest tax cut in American history, signed into law by Ronald Reagan at his beloved California ranch home on August 13, 1981.
The Economic Recovery Tax Act was a bold first step in the Reagan Revolution—a piece of legislation that even the Washington Post described as “one of the most remarkable demonstrations of presidential leadership in modern history.” Normally, the President would have signed such legislation in Washington, D.C., but the tax cut was signed at Rancho del Cielo for an important reason: to President Reagan, the Ranch symbolized freedom and opportunity. By signing the Economic Recovery Tax Act, Ronald Reagan sought to give Americans increased economic freedom.
Young America’s Foundation is marking the 30th anniversary of the tax cut with a celebrati on at the Reagan Ranch Center and the Ranch on August 12. During the day, the Reagan Ranch Center will be open to the public with special displays highlighting the tax cuts, centered around our permanent display of the patio table where Ronald Reagan signed the legislation.
That evening, the Foundation will host a special banquet featuring Dr. Art Laffer, the “Father of Supply Side Economics” at the Reagan Ranch.
