The man who created the ROTH IRA has dies.
Former US Senator William V. Roth Jr passed away the other day at 82.
The Republican Senator was a tireless champion of smaller government and tax cuts. In addition to the Roth IRA, which is a tax free retirement savings account program, he was also a co-sponser with Jack Kemp on the 1981 tax cut package that made the Reagon economy of the 1980's possible.
He was also a critic of the Internal Revenue Service, authoring a book about the agency titled, "The Power to Destroy" in 1999.
He was also a critic of wasteful government spending, being the person who discoved the now infamous $640 toilet seat .
We need more republicans that think the way that he did elected.
