BIG GEORGE! by Virgil Parldi Jensen Notes 'Rich Power1 In Congress Martin Jensen, Democratic andiclale for congress in Iowa's ccoiui district, said Monday tight that "recent action in the J.S. senate makes it clear that ax reform will be a dead issue until the rich who pay little tax are deprived of Iheir excessive lolitical influence." Jensen noted that the senate lad recently approved, but then tilled, a tax amendment that vould have closed two "gaping oopholes" in the minimum tax. "The minimum tax was dc- 'iscd in Jensen said, 'after a national scandal over he fact that many wealthy per- sons were paying no income tax at all. "But loopholes have been written into the minimum tax itself, and in indi- viduals and corporations were able to escape paying it. "The senate Jan. 24 adopted an amendment that would have closed those loopholes, and the guardians of wealth in the sen- ate were so stunned that they moved to kill the whole tax bill, amendment and all. The motion carried by a vote of 48 to 27. "Also down the drain went another amendment that woult lave increased the personal in- come tax exemption from ;iti iresent level of per person to The benefits of this pro Msal would flow almost exclusi- vely to the heavily burdened low and middle jncoriie, Jensen said. "The lesson is clear for the American taxpayer. Wealthy in terests will occasionally agree to give some benefits to the less affluent, but they will fight to a standstill any proposal to tab their special tax-avoidence ben efits away from them." Jensen made.the remarks in a speech to a dinner of steward; of local Internationa Brotherhood of Electrica Workers.
