    Description

    Ronald Reagan: 4-pg. Typed Letter Signed as Governor. Lengthy letter sent to Congressman Seymour Halpern by Governor Ronald Reagan on May 4, 1970 detailing his concerns and objections to the recently passed Welfare Reform Act (HR-16311). In part: "My opposition to the Welfare Reform Act stems from a deep, philosophical difference toward a government-guaranteed income and increasing federal intervention into state operations... the costs of the Act will be excessive... at a time when there are such heavy demands in other areas such as education and environment." Great content reflecting the political philosophy of this Republican icon. From the Estate of Malcolm S. Forbes.
