Buckley Jr., WM. F.
November 1980
National Review;11/28/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 24, p1476
The article refutes the statement of U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) that U.S. President-elect Ronald Reagan wanted to curtail unemployment insurance. The refutation was in the form of incisive journalism of John Lofton, editor of "The Conservative Digest." It turns out that what Reagan criticized was the practice of turning insurance into a welfare.
