lowans neighbors MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY JANUARY 1 1943 ICe Paper Consists of Two 271 Guerrilla fighting in Congo feared Another tax bite in effect m Butt little publicity By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHfNGTON While the nation is rife with speculation about a tax cut in 1963 a billion tax rise is going through with a minimum of publicity I will mean a considerable differ ence in takehome pay for most families The boost is in the form Social Security tax rates votec at the 1961 session of Congress The rise in payroll deduction is from 3Vs per cent to 3 per cent on the first of earn ings This is matched by the employer so the total rise is 1 per cent The maximum tax for the year thus goes up from to or 16 per cent The effect of the rise will be felt most by employes earning substantially more than the base They will have paid up their 1962 tax early year so the resumption of Social Se curity deductions amounts in a sense to a double cut in take home pay For selfemployed people the rate will rise by per cent to 5 per cent Their max imum tax goes up from to This is the ninth boost in Social Security tax rates since the system was voted into law in 1935 As rates have increased of course so have benefits The maximum benefit for a worker retired at age 65 will be a month in 1963 As the lew now stands further rate rises for employes employers and the selfem ployed arc scheduled for 1966 and 1968 And although the rate is approaching the limit the tax payer will stand for further rises may be expected The medicare plan defeated at the 1962 session of Congress would have raised the rates on em ployees and employer by Vt per cent each and on the selfem ployed by per cent It also would have applied the entire tax on the first of earn ings a boost of in the base The Socfal Security omnibus measure of 27 years ago was described at the time as more complex than any other ever considered by Congress and as the most comprehensive single piece of social legislation ever enacted by the legislature of any country But its status re mained in doubt for almost two years The Supreme Court de cision upholding the Social Se curity Act was handed down in ilay 1937 Since then coverage has been expanded regularly Social Se curity sweeteners were enacted in five consecutive election years up until 1962 The even tual universal coverage original ly intended is approaching But Social Security is a good deal more than a vast welfare umbrella Because the benefit checks are cashed and the money quickly spent the effect on the national economy is akin to that envisaged in the old Townsend Plan The system keeps money in circulation con tributes heavily to consumption of goods and indeed has become a major prop under the economy Social Security long ago ceased to be controversial though it remans the target for occasional potshots as for ex ample this one included in a recent business letter It the rate rise means a tax boost
