The presidents first reaction was to break out in laughter upon seeing a closeup of himself in a decidedly a presidential pose Reagan was addressing the Blackie dinner of the White House news photographers association wednesday night when he jokingly mugged for the dinner guests saying Quot i be been waiting years to do the gesture took Little More than a second but Lipski shot three frames two showing Reagan wiggling his outstretched fingers at the crowd. Two of the pictures were transmitted to up s clients around the world. Wmk gesture was caught by the television cameras of a Span a Public affairs Cable operation in Washington but apparently no other still photographer made the picture.

Lipski who used a Nikon camera and 85 my Lens to get the picture was aware he was working in front of his Peers wednesday night. A when i heard the president comment about the dinner being off the record and the cameras shut Down. I got ready. I saw his hands move and fired even though i did t know what he was going to do a said Lipski who joined up in los Angeles and was assigned to Washington 18 months ago. Although catching the picture was a coup. Lipski was not gloating about the shot. A one Day you win the next Day you lose. There is nothing More sobering to look at the papers and see you were out shot. You feel like crawling in a Hole. And i be been there Lipski 30, a native of Winnipeg Manitoba grew up in Southern California and is a naturalized citizen. He also took a picture of Reagan laughing Over the thumbs in ears photograph after he presented it to the president. What one member said was a reflection of the Senate leadership s desire to get out a budget Resolution even if it was one that angered Reagan. Deputy White House press Secretary Larry Speakes told reporters aboard air Force one taking Reagan to a Miami speaking engagement the budget is a off target in All three defense spending he said is a too Low taxes Are too High and spending is too he gave reporters copies of Reagan a statement at tuesday night s news conference in which Reagan pledged he will a not support a budget Resolution that raises taxes while we Are coming out of a recession. I will veto any tax Bill that will do this. And i will veto spending Bills that will rekindle the fires of inflation and High interest referring to Reagan s statement Speakes added Quot if it fits this criteria hell veto them. Its the wrong time to increase taxes. Every economist will the budget plan adopted by the Senate pushed by sen. Slade Gorton r-wash., and the so called gang of five Republican moderates sets a spending target of $848.7 billion by raising $8.9 billion in Revenue perhaps with a $500 Cap on the to percent july i tax Cut Reagan wants to preserve by holding the military spending to 6 percent Well under what Reagan wants and calling for a 1984 deficit of $184.4 billion. The president cannot veto a congressional budget Resolution which merely sets limits within which Congress is supposed to keep its legislation on specific spending programs and taxes. He can however. Veto the individual Bills by which Congress seeks to implement its budget. His veto can be Over Ridden by Congress. Differences Between the budget versions approved by the House and Senate will have to be worked out in a conference committee. The outcome in the Senate might have been different had sen. Barry Coldwater r-ariz., not been absent. A vote by Coldwater against the moderates budget would have produced a tie with Domenicis vote switch taken into account. Senate gop sources said Reagan a condemnation of Congress in recent Days angered moderates in both parties and strengthened their resolve in handing Reagan the rejection of his budget proposals. The moderates Sens. Mark Hatfield r-ore., Lowell Weicker r-conn., John Chafee r-r.i., Charles Mathias r-md., and Robert Stafford r-vt., a first won approval of a key budget amendment 53-47, with the help of 15 other republicans and 33 democrats. But Victory on the budget almost eluded them. The final vote expected to be routine was 50-49. In a moment of High drama Domenici whose own administration backed proposal went Down to defeat three times switched his vote from no to Aye to assure passage. Gorton explained the switch saying Senate Republican Leader Howard Baker was determined to approve a budget but also was determined not to permit the democrats and the moderate republicans to have More than a Bare majority. The moderates said privately their own views had not been represented during the first years of the Reagan administration and they were determined to help shape policy her out.
