Welfare Compromise unveiled by Joe Hall associated press writer Washington a sen. Abraham a. Ribicoff unveils his Compromise welfare Reform plan today to carry the Senate into the heart of its debate on a giant social Security welfare Bill. While the w Elfare Reform provisions have proven the most hotly disputed aspect of the legislation it also contains social Security increases which the Senate raised still further wednesday. By a 76-5 vote the Senate adopted democratic Leader Mike Mansfield s amendment lifting the ceiling on the amount retired persons can earn without losing social Security benefits. Mansfield a amendment pegs the ceiling at $3,000 a year compared with the present limit of $1,680. Some 1.5 million persons could Benefit from the $3,000 ceiling during the first year. Despite some opposition the Mansfield proposal was debated and passed in Short order in contrast to Tho prolonged argument expected on welfare Reform. Ribicoff offered his Compromise in Hopes of defeating the rival workfare approach drafted by the Senate finance committee and inserted in the Bill. But there were indications his amendment would not attract sufficient support to be grafted onto the social Security welfare Bill As a substitute for workfare. The Connecticut senator said that in order to win he would have to construct a coalition of Liberal democrats and moderate republicans. So far president Nixon has refused to endorse such an Effort he noted. Nixon s own proposal to Deal with the problems of welfare families the family assistance plan also is expected to be offered and Defeated next week. It was included in the big Bill As it passed the House but rejected by the Senate finance committee in favor of workfare. If both the Ribicoff amendment and the Nixon plan Are rejected liberals then will strive to eliminate workfare from the Bill. The upshot May be adoption of language which would provide for a Pilot project testing the various plans. The Senate began debate on the $15.1-billion measure wednesday and its managers quickly opened a defense of the workfare Section. This plan would require Many of the parents in welfare families to take jobs provided by a Federal corporation or lose their government Relief checks. Finance chairman Russell b. Long d-la., said his committee rejected Nixon s plan in part because members thought it did not have adequate work requirements for Able bodied welfare recipients. J what s inside Bridge.
