Bryan Bailiff T.A. – Svet Derderyan Section 606 Fri 10am October 12, 2010 Chapter 5: “Write Rosty” A week before President Reagan’s televised plea for the tax reform, Dan Rostenkowski was asked to deliver the Democrat Party’s response by the House Speaker. At first he didn’t want to do it but changed his mind so that no senator would steal his spotlight. Because Dan Rostenkowski had a tough demeanor and wasn’t great at speeches, his speech writer John Sherman hired a media consultant named Joseph Rothstein to transform the Ways and Means Chairman into a man for the people. Mr. Rostenkowski performed brilliantly on air and as he finished his speech, he told the nation to send letters of support to “ROSTY”. Rostenkowski’s gamble to support the president and tax reform paid off although he received some criticism from Chicago businessmen. He held firm due to many setbacks for tax reform in the years prior to 1985.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
