Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 9, 1965, Mason City, Iowa WASHINGTON AP What would be in it for you if the new Social Securityhealth bill passed Thursday night by the House is approved also by the Senate and signed into law by President Johnson Something now or later un less youre a very exceptional case If you are 65 or older there can be a great deal If you are still working probably more taxes to pay next year All this of course is based on the assumption that the Senate passes the bill and that its final form is not much different from Us present shape If you are 65 or older you come in automatically under a new hospitalization plan It doesnt matte rwhether you are drawing Social Security or ever have or even whether you are working If you are not a re cently arrived alien or a retired federal employe eligible for similar benefits you are cov ered The hospital plan would take effect July 1 1966 It provides up to 60 days in a hospital and up to 20 days recuperation in a nursing home for each illness If youdont use all the hospital time you can extend the nurs i ghome tiin After you pay the first the plan takes over No doctor bills are paid under this basic plan But if you want protection against doctor bills and some other health expenses you can sigh up for a national medical insurance plan It will cost you a month which wil be de ducted from your Social Securi ty check if you get one Other wise you can remit direct Un der this plan you pay the first of expenses in any year and then the insurance takes care of 80 per cent of the remainder Say you have an operation that involves a hosptyal nursinghome bill and doctor bills Thats a S550 total If you had both plans you would pay plus plus 20 per cent of 200 which is or a total of out of the If you are drawing Social Se w ill hik curity oldage payments you get a 7 per cent raise with a guarantee the raise will be not less than a month Moreover the increase is ret roactive to Jan 1 1965 If you are now or soon will be 72 and are a former worker or the widow of one who had some Social Security coverage but not enough to qualify for payments under the former law the bill may be especially good news Depending on age and the length of time worked in cov e your ered employment you may be eligible for a monthly check But suppose you are not 65 and retired but younger and working and in a job covered by Social Security Then you pay Most the cost of the new social legislation pack age comes from a stepup in the payroll tax paid by workers and their employers The first increase comes next Jan 1 and there are more over the years However as you approach retirement the higher retire ment pay awaiting you goes up But so does thetax Meanwhile if you have a fam ily you have hotter family pro tection Under the old law benefits for a deceased workers child stopped at 18 Now if the child is still in school or college the benefits would continue until age 22 The additional tax that will be withheld from your paychecks next year if you make as much as will be There is much more in the big bill but itspretty special Are you a member oC the old order Amish who object on reli gious grounds to Social Securi ty You can exempt yourself from the selfemployment tax Are you a waitress or another kind of employe largely depend ent on tips The tips now count for Social Security tax and ben efits Are you a selfemployed doctor Youre in tle Social Se curity system Home Edition VOL 105 School bill hear passage Amendment is defeated WASHINGTON AP The Senate Friday turned back an amendment to the billion school bill lo permit suits test ing the constitutionality of aid for religious schools The amendment feared hy the bills sponsors as the rough est obstacle in their drive lo pass it without change was de feated 53 to 32 The vote apparently cleared tho way for passage of the top priority bill later in the day without change as Presidenl Johnson has been urging Sen Sam J Ervin Jr D NC chief sponsor of the amendment argued that there was serious question whether the aid for private schools in the bill violated the First Amendment to the Constitution The House has already passcc the bill March 26 by a vote o 2G3 to 153 and the Ervin amendment appeared to be the last major obstacle lo enact For if no substantia changes arc made there will be no need for a conference o House and Senate to resolve differences and the bill can be on President Johnsons desk b dusk Ervin argued in presenting his amendment Thursday nigh that it is practically imftossible for an ordinary taxpayer t challenge aid to parochia schools The courts he said have held that an individual ha too minimal an interest to sus tain a suit But Sen Wayne Morse D Ore former dean of the Orego University Lav School ap ponied for defeat of the Ervi nm e ml me nt For one thing said Morse it adoption could endanger In entire program by forcing conference with the House o the touchy churchstate issue Besides Morse and Sen Ja cob K Javils RNY arguec cases bearing directly on th question already are on thei way to the Supreme Court an so the Ervin amendment is un nctcssary IJeforc sending the bill to the House floor the House Educa tion Committee tightened its language to make sure that while parochial schools benefit nil assistance is channeled through public schools The bills backers say they expect to beat the Ervin amend ment by a slim margin Republican senators said they plnn lo call up other amend ments after a test of the Ervin proposal Hickenlooper votes against amendment WASHINGTON
