Reagan tonight WASHINGTON President Reagan is expected to face questions about his plans for simplifying the in come tax system and his proposals for massive domestic spending reductions when he holds the first news con ference of his second term this Th presidents 28th formal questionandanswer session with reporters will be broadcast live by the major television and radio networks at 8 The session expected to last about 30 will take place in the East Room of the White Reagans last news conference was on when he reported on the successful conclusion of two days of Soviet talks in Geneva that led to the two superpowers agreement to begin a new round of arms control talks next Since Reagan has proposed a fiscal 1986 budget calling for sweeping cuts in federal spending for nearly everything but elimination of some including the national passenger railroad and new limits on spending for federal health and education Two weeks in his State of the Union Reagan outlined a plan for a new income tax program that would eliminate many of the present tax and most exemptions and as to ensure that all but the very poor bear a share of the federal tax At the same he left open for negotiation many of the controversial areas of tax such as how to deal with charitable contributions and capital gains and what corporations can write off for And he called for new tax breaks for some special in such as parents who send their children to private or parochial schools and businesses that build in depressed Reagans budget David has touched off some controversies the president could face questions about Stockman infuriated highranking military officers and their congressional supporters recently when he suggested the brass was more interested in preserving lucrative pensions for career soldiers than in main taining national And the brash young excongressman who grew up on a Michigan farm fueled an already blazing controversy over farmers financial He said he couldnt understand why the taxpayers should help bail out far mers who face staggering debts today because they made bad business decisions in the The presidents campaigns to regain congressional support for his MX missile program and covert aid to Nicaraguan rebels also could prompt questions this During his first Reagan held fewer news con ferences than any recent and his 9 en counter with the Washington press corps was his first such formal session in nearly six But presidential spokesman Larry Speakes has said Reagan plans to hold more news conferences in his second rfllRMAlL n If you have to ask how you cant afford James Kilpatrick Does the fat lady sing at our expense The week of George Washingtons birthday offers a singularly ap propriate time to talk about local sewers and about grand football franchises and the sale of hot Old George was our pre eminent founding What would he have thought about current events in the capital The presidents budget came to the Hill on The document provides a detailed sketch of things to come in 1986 it also prompts a backward look at George Washington spent the summer of that year listening to the Pinckneys and others debate the terms of the constitution for the young As president of the constitutional Washington heard argument on questions that trouble us to this day What is the proper role of the federal government in our society What are the if on the legislative powers of the Congress What did the founding fathers mean by authorizing Congress to provide for the general welfare of the United President Reagans budget for fiscal 86 would authorize billion in grants to localities to build local sewer The program has been immensely Hundreds of mayors and city councils are mobilizing to fight the presidents plan to phase out the grants over the next four Question How did the building of local sewer lines get to be a federal responsibility The budget contains million to cover grants and administration of the National Endowment for the The grants go to local sym opera choral groups and troups of Question Does a grant for a per formance of La Boheme in Bar tlesville promote the general welfare The example is hypothetical the question is Through the Small Business Ad the taxpayers subsidize loans and loan guarantees a Many of the loans go to doctors and dentists who could well borrow from local Some of the loans go to such small enterprises as ski insulators and operators of two One loan went to a store selling hot Question Where in the Constitution does one find authority for Congress to subsidize the fellow selling hot tubs A couple of weeks ago a Senate Judiciary subcommittee held preliminary hearings on six bills to regulate the sale of professional athletic One of the sponsored by the two senators from would make it difficult for owners of the Louis Cardinals of the National Football League to pull up stakes and take the team somewhere Question What business does Congress have in the football business Some of us were brought up to believe that the powers delegated to Congress by the Constitution were limited Clearly the national government has the responsibility to raise to maintain a to coin to carry the to provide a system of federal and to erect ar and other needful But the Constitution not only delegates power in these specific areas it also delegates power to provide for the general welfare and to regulate commerce among the several Is a loan to the Old Town Hot Tub Shoppe a loan for the general welfare Is a sports franchise a part of the commerce that properly should concern the Congress Even the debate goes Putting aside the constitutional we ought to ask questions of policy Is it is is is it manifestation of sound government for the national government to subsidize and to regulate activities that are essentially state and local activities Do such federal programs strengthen or weaken local govern ments What is their effect on the private sector The questions never will be but they ought always to be though The next time you take in a bit of grand and hear a soprano mourning the death of consider what it costs when the fat lady jack Anderson Soviet bad press watched by State When the Soviets shot down a Korean Air Lines 747 with 269 passengers and crew on American embassies around the world were immediately ordered to report the reactions of foreign governments and The State Department wanted to know just how big a black eye the Soviets had given Hundreds of recently declassified reviewed by my associate Lucette show the keen interest Foggy Bottom had in what was clearly regarded as a propaganda windfall for the United Here are some of the most significant results of the worldwide survey conducted by embassies Washington was particularly interested in determining if communist countries would issue flatout condemnations of the Soviet shootdown of the KAL Any notable out of sync with Moscow relations would be of both to us and to our Korean stated a cable sent out within days of the The tally that resulted showed only three communist governments had ac tively denounced the Soviets Yugoslavia and In this there were a couple of gratifying surprises The leftist government of Nicaragua and the Marxist regime in Grenada joined in the unanimous ex pressions of concern by countries in the The Nicaraguans backed off a bit at a meeting of the Organization of American where they The facts are not yet in one the The State Department was especially interested in the reaction of Italys who were described as paralyzed by the Soviet The incident and the delayed Soviet reaction caused considerable concern for Communist the cable adding that some members of the partys youth group had even joined a protest staged outside the Soviet Embassy hi The Communist the cable has attempted throughout the episode to make clear that it had nothing to do with these Soviet actions and should not be blamed for Washington was anxious to see whether the military regime in Poland wou toe the line like most of Moscows The Warsaw embassy reported that Poland generally was Polish media coverage of the KAL incident continues to be heavy and to follow the
