Pease wants is fund exempted from budget plan by Lawrence Budd it staff writer . Rep. Don j. Pease a Oberlin today introduced a Bill in Congress to remove social Security from the annual Strug Gle to lower the Federal budget deficit. Pease s Bill would exempt the social Security Trust fund from the calculation of the Gramm Rudman budget deficit reduction targets. While several other budget Reform proposals have been introduced including a number that would remove social Secu Rity from the budget calculations Pease said his Bill which had no co sponsors takes into account the greater difficulty of overcoming the deficit without the social Security funds. It s Plain wrong for the presi Dent and the Congress to use social Security fund surpluses to mask Federal spending in other Pease said. Doing so makes social Security a convenient ongoing target for budget cuts. That makes no Pease s Bill also injects More honesty into Federal budget Defi Cit reduction efforts he said. For example the Gramm Rud Man deficit target for 1990 is billion. Without the social Security Trust fund surplus the deficit would be Well Over billion. The Pease Bill would stretch out the Gramm Rudman deficit reduction schedule by two years and require a balanced Federal budget not counting social Secu Rity by 1995
