(Video) Coolidge on Americans keeping more of their own money
Watch the first 'talkie' of a president, the eminent Calvin Coolidge, offer common sense economic advice on this Throwback Thursday, which goes back to 1924. "I want the people of America to be able to work less for the government and more for themselves," Silent Cal says with a classic New England accent."I want them to have the rewards of their own industry. This is the chief meaning of freedom." He sounds like Ronald Reagan. Or Donald J. Trump.
