New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 9, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 2 A HeraldZeitung Sunday April Gingrich says hell set the national agenda WASHINGTON AP The speech bore all the earmarks of a pres idential address And in case anyone missed the point House Speaker Newt Gingrich drove it home in an inter view afterward He and the Republican Congress not President Clinton will control the national agenda IJelt like Gingrich told CBS after the network televised his 30minute speech on the Republican agenda Gingrich delivered his look back on the first three months of the OOPled Congress and look ahead to the rest of the year while seated casu ally on the edge of his office desk It was a presentation much like what one would expect from a president He outlined proposals countered polit ical foes and said his party having kept its Contract With was worthy of voter trust And while Gingrich disclaimed any White House ambitions he frankly admitted in the postspeech interview that he proposes to set the national agenda I just see it as a healthy peacetime redistribution of power from the White House to the Capitol and from there to the Gingrich said For the moment President Clinton left the national stage to Gingrich Dur ing the speech Clinton was flying aboard Air Force One from Dallas to Sacramento and than tune into the talk from the plane Earlier Clinton said Gingrich would claim a lot of credit for what he has done and he He promised to search for common ground with the GOP but said he would veto some measures if they are not modified in the Senate In his speech Gingrich unveiled no new blockbuster proposals He said Republicans would simplify the tax code leave Social Security untouched and give the elderly more choices in their governmentfunded health care He promised that the rest of the fed eral government including the mili tary would be subject to budget cuts The result he said Would be a bal anced budget in seven years to free our children from the burdens upon their prosperity and their Democratic leaders used their tele vision response time to accuse Gin grich and the Republican majority as having no sympathy for the poor while handing out tax breaks to the rich But the evening had much less to do with substantive debate and much more to do with image Casting himself as a break from the tradition of stuffy untelegenic con gressional leaders Gingrich brought along a bag full of props designed to show him as at once human and mod ern He showed viewers a Dear Mr Newt letter from a Georgia first grader He held up one of the Contract With America stamped He showed the card House mem bers use to cast votes electronically calling it the most expensive credit card in the for all the debt it has run up He juxtaposed an oldfashioned radio vacuum tube with a hightech microchip that could bring the equip ment used by federal air traffic con trollers up to date and compared a fat copper telephone trunk line with a bare ly visible fiberoptic cable The message was that in smaller better and Republicans want to make government more modern even as they shrink it Throughout the speech Gingrich stressed the simplicity of the Republi can program and sought to put voter fears to rest Our goals are he said We dont want our children to drown in debt We want baby boomers to be able to retire with the same security as their parents We want our senior Americans to be able to rely on Medicare without The letter from the first grader it turned out was a preemptive public relations strike against the two Democ State plans to audit drug rehab programs DALLAS AP The Texas Com mission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse is recommending indepth audits of near ly a third of its taxpayerfunded chem ical dependency programs because of problems found at the substanceabuse facilities The Dallas Morning News reported Saturday that the agency also is rec ommending a lessdetailed review of 209 other facilities it fluids The onsite inspections of 368 of the agencys substanceabuse providers were made after some state leaders admonished the agency for not keeping a closer watch on its programs Commission vice chairman Michael Hull of Austin said he is concerned with the findings and said the agency has been lax in regulating its providers in the past 1 think there are some potential problems out he said The Morning News obtained a copy of the commissions report on the reviews which is expected to be made public at its board meeting next week In the report commission staffers said they found problems serious enough at 107 of the facilities they visited to war rant audits Dallas topped the list with 19 cen ters while Houston had 17 facilities recommended for audits Recently one of the Dallas facili ties had its funding suspended Problems at the centers ranged from minor paperwork violations to more serious allegations such as excessive salaries and undocumented expendi tures The report has been turned over to the Senate General Investigating Com mittee Hull said it is up to the committee whether to proceed with the proposed audits Meanwhile a private accounting firm is currently auditing the commis sions 52 largest providers Lt Gov Bob Bullock who earlier this year forced the resignation of the commissions executive director Ben Bynum is the driving force behind the investigation Bynum stepped down after Bullock criticized him following reports of mis use of public funds at two facilities in Austin and Corpus Christi Those facilities are under investiga tion by the county district attorneys in those cities One of the facilities Austin Rehabilitation Center has agreed to reimburse the state million Deborah Stokes INTERNAL MEDICINE 264 West Mill Street New Braunfels Texas Office
