Political cartoon showing President Calvin Coolidge (1872 - 1933) riding in a car with Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon (1855 - 1937), two figures on the roadside exhort them to 'Give her the gas' and an arrow pointing down is labeled Tax Reduction, ca.1925. The illustration possibly refers to the Revenue Act of 1924, wherein Coolidge, with Mellon's support steered US economic policy towards tax reduction. The cartoonist Clifford Berryman makes this point by depicting Coolidge driving a car headed downhill, with Mellon applying the brakes. (Photo by Fotosearch/Getty Images)
