Congress recently passed a bill extending the life of the Office of Price Administration, but amended the law to the extent of eliminating some of the past unsound OPA policies and practices. These past policies of OPA were hamstringing product tion, el-eating Black Markets and retarding distribution. This is the first step in the right direction to eliminate inflation ahd indicate to the people that eventually thc'OPA Wa* Measures will be terminated. M%^**l IS"»VI^I I not some Government Regulation or Press Release is the only cure oflnfla- PROPUVTIQlH tion. We know America has the agricultural, manufacturing and distnbu- tion facilities to satisfy not only our own needs but those of much of the world.' However, since V. J. Day this producing capacity has been slowed down and forced out of production the type of goods we need, as the result of maladministration of OPA. . • * • ' • You Have Seen The Results of Past OPA Bungling m Iu .1 (I I I" f T We can all see with our own eyes the Bla,ck Market Increasing daily and the high prices which we are actMally paying. Inflation Is already here .Workmen have seen their factories forced to either reduce hours or actually close because OPA policies had cither shut off raw material supplies, or. had made their factory's product unprofitable to manufacture. Agriculture has seen its production, distribution system and markets distorted by OPA 'policies. The home-seeking Veteran' has found that he must pay Black Market prices because OPA had chanelled building materials away from the legitimate Building Industry and seriously reduced the already inadequate supply of building materials. OPA policies funnelled the majority of products into needlessly high-priced lines. These arc but a few examples of the troubles that impractical and unsound OPA policies have gotten us into. You personally have observed these results. OPA HAD ITS DAY IN COURT Congress acted only a,fter f*ee and open hearings at whiph evidertce^vas pr^scnted^y QPA, reaucrats, Agriculture, Labor, Business and Consumer Groups. Thousands of pagesi of, '* charts and statistics were presented. The House of Representatives, actingonly af Jet it had the FACTS and, by a majority greater than 8 to 1, decided^* the past^aladmiwstral^n^ OPA must : be corrected, if tke INFLATION we already have was to be stopped. ' __ -•• ' •'•';, • " ' ~ ' • WHAT DID CONGRESS DO? '••$W\ BRIEFLY STATED: I The House extended the life of OPA beyond 1946. OPA asked for that extension. June 30, , • •••• '•' ;-.;. •-. v THE HOUSE WP NOT REMOVE THE POWERS OPA TO PREVENT RUN-AWAY PRICES. OF 4 The House Bill said that in order to get PRODUC TION, since this is the one important factor to prevent * INFLATION and Black Market, future prices put into effect on any product «iust be based on current cost plus a reasonable profit. This House action looks like "just plain common sense." Past OPA policy has been exactly the contrary ftpd OPA is howlins over tWs amendment because itIdoes not want to be required to fix prices based on current costs plus a reasonable 'profit. Why? , 4 The House said the vast hidden costs and Inflation, existing In the present OPA program, must be brought out in the open. This Inflation »nd the hidden costs amount to BILLIONS of dollars per yea.r disguised as SUBSIDIES and are paid for by the taxpayer. 5 Finally, the. House served not' c c. on OPA that It could;: not expect to be n vast and costly, self-perpetuatinV Bureaucracy arbitrarily ruling Jhe lives of Americans forever. The House stated it proposed to return America to the people at the earliest date 'practical. t • .
