Johnson acted on this biggest fax cut in the nation's history within a few hours after the Senate passed the measure, 74- 19, ending its year-long, some- limes stormy voyage through Congress. It reduces taxes for 80 million individuals by one- 'ifth, on the average, and for corporations by about nine per cent starting with 196-1 relurns. Expression of Faith After the signing ceremony in .he East Room of lhe While Mouse, Johnson spoke lo lhe na- uon in a hastily arranged tele- vision-radio broadcast, saying- "We have made this bill an ex- pression of faith in our system of free enterprise. The ability of :his tax bill greatly to.improve :ne vigor of our economy rests m your hands as individual con- sumers and businessmen.
