Sioux Center News (Newspaper) - December 14, 1977, Sioux Center, Iowa Point counterpoint Sioux Center wednesday december 14,1977 Page.2 Bdl orial wondering if it will work the Carter administration s proposed $300 tax Cut for a family of four and a general crackdown on deductions for business meals and dues for membership in clubs is expected to bring rejoicing from the Public. More far reaching Reform ideas such As ending preferential treatment for capital gains and easing the double taxation of corporate dividends could be revived in a second round of tax reductions that the Carter administration is thinking about for 1980, an election year. Such tightening up would presumably irritate business people but the administration is hopeful that they will be won Over by two proposals for permanent tax Relief for business an across the Board Cut in the corporate tax rate and a broadening of the eligibility for the investment tax credit. These two proposals and the possibility of others will be presented As evidence that the Carter administration understands business needs. At the same time Treasury Secretary w. Michael Blumenthal says temporary tax Relief is neither what business wants nor what the administration will propose. Whatever action we should take on business taxes should be permanent Blumenthal said when asked about earlier plans to lift the investment tax credit temporarily above its present 10 percent level. Tax Relief for individuals is expected As before to be concentrated in lower and lower Middle income brackets. The most Likely proposal officials said is for cuts that would be Worth about $300 a year for a family of four in the $15,000-to-$20,000 bracket. This hypothetical family pays roughly $1,700 a year in Federal income taxes. In All the income tax reductions for individuals and business Are Likely to total More than $20 billion possibly $22-billion. The exact numbers will depend on the taxes that would be raised by the social Security and Energy Bills in House Senate conferences. These and other changes it is hoped will increase the proportion of taxpayers who take Standard deductions As opposed to itemized deductions to 83 and 85 percent from about 70 percent under present Law. Another change certain to be in the january package is conversion of the personal exemption of a tax credit. All of this would take effect Jan. 1, 1979, but the individual and corporate rate reductions would take effect sooner probably july 1. Officials Are hopeful that the announcement effect of such a proposal in january will encourage upward revisions in planned business investment spending in 1978 and 1979. Since last september or. Carter has abandoned several other tax Reform ideas. He did so because he found less support and More resistance in Congress add because he Felt a growing need to enact a tax cutting Bill in Early 1978 to pump vigor into the Economy in the second half of the year. Additionally it is expected by Carter the Energy and social Security Bills will raise extra billions of Federal revenues that the administration wants to put Back into consumer spending by income tax reduction. If much of this appears audacious you Are Correct. What the Carter administration is seeking is a beginning one that will bring Relief to the nation As a whole such the administration Hopes is a Sotu Able response to inflation. What it does t answer however is will it work Sioux Center guest editorials infringing on human rights a couple of week ago the Shah of Iran came to Washington to visit with president Carter. The Washington Post estimated that Over 10,000 people would flock into the City some to protest this visit and others to offer their support. When the Shah s helicopter landed on the Ellipse violence had already broken out. As president and mrs., Carter and the Shah and Empress Farah stood on the platform during the greeting ceremonies tear Gas floated across the White House grounds causing much discomfort. Throughout the Day demonstrators fought each other and the police. By the end of the Day Over 100 people had been Hurt. The saturday before the Shah arrived i was walking near the Capitol and saw some people with signs so i went to get a closer look. There sat 15 or 20 Young students with yellow hoods Over their Heads. They were members of the Young muslims organization and were wearing the hoods to hide their identity from any iranian secret police who were most Likely in the area. The students carried signs protesting the Shah and All Day Long they could be heard chanting things like the Shah is a fascist Butcher i and Down with the shall they sat there every Day without eating a thing a hunger strike until the Shah left the next wednesday. What makes people do things like this and How much of it should the United states citizens be expected to put up with traffic was snarled All Over downtown Washington within a three Block radius of the White House. Tourists and residents alike were not Safe walking in the area because they were in danger of being struck with baseball bats or Metal pipes. In an interview on a local television program one person who was in the City from Chicago to demonstrate in favor of the Shah blamed the Washington metropolitan police department for All the violence. He blamed the police for not providing adequate Protection for the demonstrators. This seems to me to be a very unfair statement. The police did not invite these people to come to Washington nor did they hand out signs baseball bats and. Metal pipes. They set up areas where each group could demonstrate but these areas were ignored. Also it was not the police who threw the first tear Gas that drifted Over the White House. The anti Shah people were protesting the Lack of human rights in Iran. Many of the terrorists activities in the United states Are done by foreign militant groups. They All have very solid arguments against the governments they Are protesting but does this give them the right to come into our country endanger the lives of our citizens and then blame the police for the violence in t their behaviour just As bad As the behaviour of the governments they Are protesting " by Cindy Vandestouwe a senior at Northwestern College is spending four months interning for congressman Berkley Bedell in Washington .
