President Johnson describes it has written an historic record in its first session With topheavy Democratic majorities it rolled out a tide of major legislation that often drew comparisons with the New Deal days of the 1930s It set up a permanent health care program for the elderly made it easier for Negroes in the South to register to vote wiped out taxes on dozens of items bought by nearly all Americans provided more than billion to improve education for disadvantaged children It broke down bars to immi gration set up regional centers to bring to all parts of the coun try the newest techniques for fighting major diseases and pro vided federal grants for writers painters composers and other artists Its biggest claim to fame ap peared to rest on 1 The Social Secu rity bill passed

for the nations grade and high schools ever to clear Congress Children from poor families are to benefit most 3 The voting rights bill passed in August suspending literacy tests and permitting federal
