Reed 1 R-NV') called anew today for quick passage of his bill to cut income taxes nntl Insisted it doesn't conflict with apparent go - slow signals from President Eiscn- liotver. A leading Democrat, however, cMdeo. Republicans as being "In considerable disagreement." Rep. Cooper (D-Tenn) adticrt. "We nem- ocrals have to \valt and see if they ge( together find see what they come up with." Reed, chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, said he was "not fit nil disturbed" over Eisenhower's plea to Congress lo put budget balancing ahead of tax reductions, "There's no quarrel between us," Reed said. "I've insisted all along on balancing the budget. Hut we can pass my bill and balance the budget too." Reed predicted the House Ways and Means Committee will approve his bill at a meeting called for Pel). 16. His proposal would advance by six months, to June 30, (he presently scheduled lapse of an 11 per cent boost in individual Income tax rales. Elsenhower, In his State of the Union message to Congress yesterday, said it would not be wise to reduce federal revenues "until we can determine the extent to whlcl expenditures can be reduced." The President referred to spending cuts and budget balancing as , "Ihe first order of business" am "an essential first measure." Rep. Cooper, senior Democrat, on the ways and means committee said it certainly didn't appear to him that Elsenhower and Reed were agreed on the Issue. "There is a conflict of oplnloi among the Republicans." Cooper said. "It will be interesting lo see what develops." House Democratic Leader Ray burn of Texas said, "I fear thi President's speech will be dlsap pointing In many parts of the conn try because he does not propose to immediately start reducing faxes. ..." Rep. Richard Simpson (R-Pa), a ways and means member who JIBS been reluctant so far lo call for early lax-cuttlnfr action, Baid: "f am convinced now that the budget can be balanced and taxes can be cut Immediately—at this session of Congress. The sound policies outlined by President Elsenhower are nound to bring conomy in government." Senate OOP Leader Tnft of Ohio Ircady has said he personally avors balancing the budget before educing revenue. He endorsed the 'resident's views. Sen. Hyrd (D-Va), a finance com- nltlce member, said Elsenhower's 'forceful discussion of our budgetary problems Indicates a stead- ast purpose to balance the budget >y the elimination of waste and hen reduce taxes." Heed Indicated he had modcr- -ited his earlier predictions of louse passage of his bill this month. He said he sllll hopes for lassagc in February but he would jo along with any "reasonable" lelay. One House Democratic leader declining to be quoted by name said he noted the Republicans greeted Elsenhower's tax views, with nilencc, while Democrats I gave him some applause. 'If he had put It Just a litlle more bluntly," this man said, "that would have been the end of the honeymoon." , Congressional staff specialists estimate that advancing the Income tax cut by six months, as' in the Heed bill, would cost a billion dollars .In revenue this year. That would put federal income about 11 billion behind spending ar. estimated by ex-Prcsldcnt Trumar —meaning Congress would have t< cut the budget 11 billion to balanc Income with outgo.
