Thus he said widespread inflation can be avoided. I budget director Charles l. Schultze backed Fowler s estimate of the deficit and said Quot we Are determined to Cut More than $1.5 billion Quot in spending. Quot we Are aiming at a Cut of Over $2 billion As a Means of holding civilian expenditures below the january estimate Quot Schultze continued. Spending estimate Fowler said the spending estimate submitted in january for the year that began july 1 May now be exceeded by As much As $8.5 billion including $4 billion for defense and that revenues May be As much As $7 billion less than had been anticipated. Fowler sought to show that the proposed tax increase is less heavy than those enacted under comparable circumstances in the past. He said that during world War ii personal income taxes were raised by the equivalent of 730 per cent and the taxes associated with the korean War were equivalent to about a 28 per cent surcharge. In contrast he said a married couple with two children ind a $ 10.000 salary typically would pay about $111 More under the pending surtax proposal or not much More than one per cent of total income. Johnson in a series of sessions with House democrats had Laid out the main lines of the administration argument a deficit possibly approaching $30 billion would mean inflation higher interest rates scarce Money for the Small business and individual Borrower and quite Likely disaster for the Home building Industry. The opposing argument is that the Economy is not so Strong but that a Burden of the magnitude of the proposed tax increase might depress it and actually reduce instead of increasing the government s revenues.

Mills d-ark., of the ways and Means committee expressed a widespread congressional feeling when he said Quot i am absolutely Mills added sunday the proposal Quot certainly faces a very difficult Uphill Battle Quot and he sees no congressional or taxpayer enthusiasm for any tax increase.

But Fowler said sunday he believes there will be no need for Compromise on the plan once Mills committee Quot is fully confronted with the sen. Thruston b. Morton r-ky., said he believes if a surtax is voted it is Likely to be six or seven per cent instead of 10 per cent. He said he thinks Johnson has Only a 50-50 Chance of getting any surtax approved by Congress. Mills spoke on a radio television broadcast in new York state Fowler on Abc s Quot issues Aid answers Quot and Morton on metro Media s Quot opinion Johnson made one move saturday to demonstrate his stated intention to hold Down some types of government spending. He vetoed a Bill that would have provided More life insurance coverage for 2.5 million Federal employees and would have Cost $61 million the first year. He also told Congress not to go beyond a 4.5 per cent increase he has recommended in Federal pay. 40 years ago in the daily Herald August 14,1927 mrs. J. E.
