May Have Both Sales, Income Taxes Within Year By RICHARD A. FORESTER State Senator Wage earners are beginning to ask some embarrassing questions. They are worried over the u!pward spiral of taxes. They are realizing that from this point on the tax burden will be their burden. The effect of last November's "peddling of political marahuana is wearing off. The promised Land ' looks more and more like a bleak, stony trail up the tax mour.tain. The peaks of that mountain lie ahead. And some 60 odd thousand government employes on all levels in this State are going to ride up that mountain on the backs of the men and women who work for a living in business and industry. Government produces no wealt v \ whatever, it only consumes it. One of the truest remarks F. D. R. ever u-nade was the statement that "Taxes are paid in the sweat of every man who labors." Labor will realize the fill! significance of that remark by April of 1950. Because current state tax income is misleading. Currant income is from 1948 returns, the peak of the pest-war boom. The drastic drop in isales and profits in 1949 will be reflected in the first, second and third quarters of 1950. The N. Y. Times recently reported a di-op of 50 per cent in net income in retailing alone for the first six months of the year. Many industries have been even harder hit. The majority of forecasting services 'predict a gradual decline of net income through 3950 as various lines turn from sellers to buyers markets. As taxes are based on net income the answer is all too obvious. From this point on the wage earner is 1 going to stag-ger aiong under an ever mounting burden of visible and hidden taxua. He will be asked to take up the slack of declining tax returns from business and industry, in the form of a continued sales tax plus an income tax. Within a year we may well be the 28th State to have both. This isn't Washington. When the budget gets out of balance we can't print 'more money and lower bank reserves; we have to rais» taxes. \Vh.v do we put up with thi.'i system that should be content to pass necessary laws and serve thn people at the .lowest hossible cost and that has turned into a monster of \vast£, graft and stupidity taking two and a. half clays pay in hidden and visible taxes from every weekly envelope? We put up with it because we have lost control of it by. default. Intelligent, successful business men of both parties devote their spare time 'n the welfare of clubs, lodges, charities, etc., but look the other way rather than acknowledge the sordid {political thing they have spawned through neglect and indifference. You have to see a state legislature in action to grasp the extent of this default. You have to witness (he incredible mockery of a man voting- on the expenditure of millions of dollars of the taxpayers money, a man some concerns .-night hesitate to hire a. s a night watchman. This may be democracy in some country where it is a mark of distinction to own a pair of shoes. But in one of the most, civilized and productive States in America it amounts to economic idiocy. You have to sen the patient research, afcjdv, and bill analysis by conscientious men and women discarded like trash, 'because the party line order from on hish is "sjplit, don't compromise, no discussion." That is what public indifference and synl- cism has bred 1 . Labor, .13 well nr management, now realizes the price they are going to pay for it. The cost of this politically bloated anachronism can only be matched by its incompetence.. Consider the housing shambles. The one iionth of promises, the eleven months of alibis. Not one house has been completed 'in the State under 1949 legislation. Wutcrbury's pride anr'i jo'| f.he Fairniounf. Project, wan authorized and financed by the 1947 Legislature. The housing shortage is crippling and injuring the health and stability of American families more than any major physical disease. If industrial leaders hud fumbled and bogged Oown on rearmament in 1942, the way we have on housing in this State, we would now be looking over the fences of concentration camps. We oroduced a sizeable share of the bomber motors, weapons, and munitions that destroyed half of Europe. But with all our resources we complete less than a thousand homes in a year for the 25,000 fam- 'lies waiting for adequate shelter. The bold leadership that won the war has given way to downright incompetence and political quackery. You need no better example of the latter, than the National Guard Anti-segregation 'bill. This was trumpeted in press releases as something only slightly less e£ioehal than freeing the slaves in '64. This great step forward when cut down to size, reveals that 11? negroes have joined the 8,000 white members of the Guard. But 10,000 colored men and women are loft to silently suffer in the sordid squalor of the wretched slurfls they are; forced to live in. • And $10,000 couldn't be found to. finance thn .production and distr,Unition of a documentary film of these conditions ,that would have shocked every man, woman and child in the State to a pitch' that would have compelled 'action. But $10,000 was readily found for bonuses for legislative tmployes, =ome of them •lesei-ved ,hut mere of them wtmt to many who picked up their sal- nry checks twice a. month, tout were never seen by either House or Senate members of the Contingent Expenses Committee, dui- ing- the entire session. The potential documentation of fraud and deception is endless. And nothing I can say will change this system to the slightest degree. But 1 would be negligent to the tru.^t and welfare of the 65,000 people 01 both parties I endeavored to serve, if I ignored the ominous, shadowy political groundswell of class hatred and incompetence, that unchecked, may destroy the decent constructive toil and labor of two generations. Funeral Henry Lafley The funeral of Henry Lafley, 68, of 4 Oak street will be held Monday from the Hicks Funeral Home, St. Albans. Vt. Mr. Lafley died Thursday night in Waterbury hospital after a .brief illness. COMPENSATION Compensation Commissioner Harry S.
