Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for March 20, 1981
Voice: Mr. Slackmeyer, wouldn't you agree that the most indefensible aspect of your tax cut proposals is the unconscionable way in which they favor the rich? Slackmeyer: No, sir, I certainly would not. If we're going to avoid an economic Anzio, then we have to move boldly. We can't afford to engage in a fiscal Battle of Midway without our captains of industry! From past experience, we know that the well-heeled are the only class that can be depended on to put their tax cuts into savings and investments! Voice: And the poor? Slackmeyer: Studies show they tend to blow it all at the track.
