Lot 68: ALS, one page, 5.75 x 7.75, personal letterhead, June 14, no year. Letter to Madge Blake. In part: "As you can imagine some letters about the 'tax pitch' in TV guide were not so nice. As for the problem you described I'm taking it to the Guild and you can rest assured it will get attention. I don't know first what all we can do but this question of dates on checks & dates they were rec'd is one we've fought about before." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original article clipped from TV Guide in which Reagan explains that actors pay too much income tax. Although Blake was known as a character actress and would not have shared the same tax bracket as Reagan and other icons of the silver screen, it seems that she did share his sentiments toward taxation. This issue was one of the primary focuses of Reagan's political career and a definitive aspect of his legacy, summed up in the portmanteau 'Reaganomics.'
