in congress now The Gore Aiken Anderson and Brannan plans Theyie named after Rep Gore Senator Aiken R Vt Senator Anderson DNMex and Secretary of Agriculture Brannan These 4 are an outgrowth of the first farm plan which con gress passed in 1933 All the plans from that time to this although differing in de tails have had one purpose To help farmers have a good in come by keeping farm prices up even if it means government help to the farmers When it passed the first plan in 1933 called the agricultural adjustment act the Triple A said in effect to the farmers We want to see you get lor your crops enough money to en able you to buy the kind of things you were able to buy in some pre vious peViGu farmers W5T6 prosperous As a yardstick well take the period of 190914 In other words we want your purchasing power now this was 1933 to be on a par with your purchasing power in 1909 14 We will call it parity with that period We cant guarantee you full parity Well say that if you can get a certain price for your crops that will give you parity If prices fall to somewhere be tween 52 and 75 per cent of par ity the government will step In and buy your crops or make you loans on them so you can hold them till the price goes up Which means the government puts a floor under your crop prices and wont let them fall below 52 to 75 per cent of parity Congress decided it would give this kind of guarantee on 6 basic crops Corn cotton wheat to bacco rice peantits Remember them tory Theyre importaot in this The 1933 act helped the farm ers The law was revised in 1938 and again in 1941 That revision in 1941 calledthe Steagall amendment after Rep Steagall animportant one Instead of guarantee of giving farmers a only 52 to 75 per cent of parity as had been the case since 1933 it raised the guar antee to 90 per cent on the 6 basic crops and added others The Steagall amendment stayed on the books until 1948 In that year congress did 2 things 1 Revised the Steagallamended law a little and said this should remain law until Dec 31 1949 2 Thereafter congress said there would be a new called the Aiken law This is where the 4 Aiken law and the Gore Ander son and Brannan in This is what they would do a sliding guarantee of 60 to 90 per cent of parity in stead of tht flat 90 per cent as at present under the law expiring Dec the 6 basic crops On other crops thered be a guaran tee from zeroto 90 per cent Gore Keep the 90 per cent guarantee on the 6 basic crops and guarantee 60 to 90 per cent of par ity on other crops which the gov ernment chooses to help a 75 to 90 per cent guarantee of parity on the 6 basic crops instead of the 90 per cent under present law and the Gore plan and on other crops make it 60 to 90 per cent s guarantee on nonperishable crops Jike wheat but let perish ables lke milk and meat find their own price levels in the pub lic market Let the government decide what is a fair price for the perishables If the public market fell below that levcs the government would pay the farmer the difference be tween the low price he got and the price considered fair by the government Unless both houses of congress can agree on some plan to take the place of the Aiken plan which congress approved in 1948 the Aiken plan becomes law Jan 1 to any 1U of be the irjrOhi tsiives and senators but are going away nyway The senate which is far behind in its work
