The first official word on the Hope Expressed For Compromise This bill is to be called up for fenate debate Monday, but the Uscussion is expected to be pro- onged. A majority of Republican! and a number of Southern Dernoy crate are still strongly committed Five Republican senators joined against any Social Security health 3 Democrats in cosponsoring the ew proposal, worked out after weeks of intensive conferences. This in itself showed a consider- ble voting gain for the new bill. inly one Republican voted for a jocial Security health care plan it was offered to the Senate y then Sen. John F. Kennedy, 3-Mass., in 1960 arid defeated 51 a .44. Sen. Clinton P. Aaderson, D- chief Senate sponsor of 'resident Kennedy's health care jlan and one of those seeking a brnpromise, told the Senate of ils elails and declared Ihe lime has irrived "lo provide an effective irogram of protection for the na- ion's elderly people." Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, D Minn., assistant Democratic lead- r, said "this proposal can and vill be passed by the Senate arid the House." Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., me of the Republicans most ac- ive in the negotiations, said he regards the compromise as "an listorie step" which could turn out to be a landmark in welfare egislation. These are the key points of the compromise: 1. It would be financed by an ncrease in Social Security pay- roll taxes. 2. The benefits would be the same as under the administration jill on which Kennedy has been urging action hospitau'zalion, nursing home care, home healtt services and outpatient hospital diagnostic services. 3. The estimated Vk million people not covered by Social se- curity would be given the bene- fits of the program along with the 15 million expected to be under Social Security or Railroad Retire- ment Act by 1964 when the plan would take effect. 4. An option would be providec under which a beneficiary coulc elect to take his payments through a private health insurance plan in stead of the Social Security Ad ministration. This option feature was the key to bipartisan agreement on the plan, because many Republicans willing lo support Social Security financing, were insisting on pri vate company participation. Despite confidence of sponsors thai they now would have votes to spare in Ihe Senale, il seemet questionable Ihe plan could clear Ihe House this year. The House Ways and Means Committee has been struggling with the issue since last session but a majority of its members appear to be lined up against any Social Security health Senate Democratic leaders chafing at the long House delay announced they would try to lacl the compromise proposal to a House-passed bill dealing with public welfare laws. system.
