He snid the bill "meels the requirements of fiscal respon- sibility" and is explicilly aimed at achieving a balanced budget in a growing economy, pro- viding opportunities for employ- ment and investment and "giving the fullest possible play to the initiative and venture- someness of the private sector of the economy." He said the reduction will not perform miracles like ending poverty or even reducing unem- ployment immediately below four per cent, or ending balance of-payments difficul- ties, But ho insisted it will "make possible a very substantial in- crease in the level of total econ- omic activily" al the "initiative or private consumers and busi- ness." The further results, he said, will be more profits, more jobs and increased attraction for investment in the United States. In apparent recognition of the elimination in the bill of many of Ihe tax-lightening provisions President John F. Kennedy originally recommended, Mills continued: "All of us know.of course, that this is not the ulti- mate lax bill.
