t' FRIDAY, MAY 27,1949 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FACE 8ETEW THE NATION TODAY Notion Needs to Observe Simple Facts and Either Spend Less Or Rap U.S. Taxpayers Harder By James Marluw A WASHINGTON, May 27. Wj—You're in the soup If your Income Is 160 a week and you spend $55 » week to live. If you're going to keep the sheriff away, you'll have to cut down the spending and slay within your means. Looks like the government, is in that kind of soup now. In the fiscal year stnrttnK July 1, government expenses are expected to total $42 billion or more while its Income—mostly from (axes—will vun maybe 3 billion less than $42 billion. Congress, of course, could bridge the gap between Income and expenses by boosting the income (taxes). But that's what Congress says lt» doesn't want to ito, although president Truman still is calling Wilson Seniors Give Program; Receive Honors tor a tax raise. Or—since Congress must vote the money that government spends, it conltl bridge the gap by cutting government expenses. So far this year it hnsn't taken much deitnite action to do that, either, although it talks a lot about the necessity ot doing it. Yet. if it did do that, without a lot of care and wisdom, it could cripple the work of the government. l.onff, Slow Process All of which illustrates one of the problems of Congress; Early each year the government's Budget Bureau, after checking ^/•efully (or months, lays the budget on Congress' desk. That budget Is the list of expenses for running the various departments of government for another year, starting July 1. Then the House Appropriations Committee goes to work, holds hearings, and calls in the officials of the departmenl to explain why they need tills or that. After al! this, the committe finally decides how much it thinks each department reslly needs, no matter what the Budget Bureau «aid. Then week by week the committee eomes up with a bunch of appropriations bills: So much needed for | tht Justice Department, so much for commerce, so much for the trewury, so much lor the armed forces. These bills are then laid before th» full membership of the House, generally one or two at a time, for debate and vote. Th« Senate goes through the Hme procedure. It tultes weeks »nd months to get around to nil of the money bills, tfnce each is tackled more or less ^tjparntely. ' Would Vtt Sensible Method With this piece-men! approach, Congress • never knows precisely until the last appropriations bill is voted on how much money altogether it has voted for the government to spend «nother year. That makes,it v little, .tougher to cut down total expenses so they'll be le-Sj than total Income, if they can be made less at all. Now there's talk In Congress o! this: Next year wrap up all the appropriations bills In o\\e big blockbuster bill and lay It before Congress, instead of doing it one bill at a time. Then, able to see (lie total expense ot the Government all at one time [ and all in one piece. Congress will , have a belier chance o[ whittling ' down Ihc total expense money to | fi^ the total income. | Since thus idea is still in the talking sta^e, maybe it won't come about at all. Congress is famous for sticking to the way it used to do things. I wouldn't want to have to sit in the gallery through the debate on the block-buster. I guess it would last for weeks, at least.
