CSE, Dick Armey Remember Ronald Reagan

Washington, D.C. - Today, CSE Chairman and former House Majority Leader Dick Armey made the following comments:

"Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) and our 360,000 members nationwide remember Ronald Wilson Reagan with sadness, affection, and pride."

"Ronald Reagan changed the world. We have no doubt that history will remember him as the greatest modern American President. He came into office in 1980, when the U.S. economy was floundering, Soviet tyranny dominated Eastern Europe, and pessimism abounded. Reagan changed all of that. In the face of withering criticism and political peril, he returned the country to its roots, cutting taxes, deregulating markets, encouraging trade, and confronting Communism in clear moral terms. As a result, America became once again a place of growth and optimism."

"Indeed, Ronald Reagan's vision still informs our politics today. Our organization, Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE), was founded in 1984 and is but one embodiment of the revolution that Reagan began. Today, as we remember Ronald Reagan, we also renew our commitment to Ronald Reagan's great project: building an America that confidently stands for free enterprise, individual liberty, and the rule of law."
