and congressional balloting Hut Social Security Commissioner Hubert M Ball says that can't happen unless the is signed into law Aug 10 because of the time it lakes to change his computers With Floor debate delayed until after a mid-July congressional recess for the Democratic National Convention that gives the Senate less than a month to resolve a three-way split over the bill's welfare provisions Bui little argument seems likely on the Social Security measure which would raise monthly payments 10 per cent across the board expand Medicare to cover maintenance drugs and provide a million supplement for widows Well over half the Senate is on record in favor of doubling the across-the-board increase to 20 per cent If both programs are kept in the same package it seems unlikely that the legislation could reach President Nixon by Aug 10 because of lengthy debate and the time it would take to reconcile the measure with the version passed earlier by the House For this reason Finance Chairman Russell B Long said Tuesday there might be a move to split off the Social Security provisions a difficult parliamentary maneuver At issue is the welfare program for Aid to Families with Dependent Children which covers about 11 million persons Nixon has recommended an AFDC reform plan which was largely approved by the House It features a guaranteed annual income for a family of four and payments for the first time to the working poor The Finance Committee flatly rejected this plan and substituted one of its own called with strict work The attendance at the Crossroads
