We have two ears and one ongue, so that we may hear more and speak less. the likllhood of tax reform. We will have a good opportunity to reduce or eliminate such loopholes as the oil depletion allowance, the investment tax credit and foreign tax credits, and to strengthen ithe minimum income tax to assure that wealthy individuals and corporations do not get by without paying any taxes. According to a recent congressional staff report, te n of the country's biggest corporations paid no federal income f. r tax last year and another 20 Congress Convenes'companies, with profits of $5.3 1 billion, paid an effective tax rate of between 1 and 10^. by Senator Dick Clark As .the new session of Con- TOSS gets underway, attention s focused on two vital and •elated areas — energy and the conomy. The two are practically inseparable — in the last year, United States payments for oil mports quadrupled, placing a terrible strain on our economy. Reduction of energy consumption is a key step in im-j proving the nation's economic situation, and everyone is agreed that sctme kind of conservation program is needed. | Congress will be considering, a number of conservation pro-j posals including rationing, a ;asollne tax, a tariff o n Imports, a limitation on imports, decontrolling of oil prices, stepped-up voluntary conservation, and increased use of coal. Since a number Of the proposals involve increasing prices or taxes In order to reduce consumption, we will also have to consider some kind of rebate system or other means to reduce the 'burden in low and middle income persons. Although energy conservation is a key factor i n improving the economy, Congress will also be looking at other areas for improvement. There will be another effort at tax reform, and possibly a tax cut for low and middle income individuals. The House Ways and Means Committee, where such legislation must originate, was expanded this year, increasing We will also be considering the reimposition of wage and price controls to stem the inflation spiral, and it. (may be necessary to expand the public service employment program if the jobless rate continues to rise. Congress will be dealing with a number of other important issues in 1975 — national health insurance, for instance — but it is clear now that energy and the economy -will get priority attention.
