NOVEMBER !r, 1847 Republican Leaders Viewing Marshall Plan With Caution, And Keeping Eye on Tax Cut By RAYMOND LAHK United Prtts Stiff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Nov. 17. (U.P.5—Some Republican congressional leader* view tbe multi-billion-dollar Marshall plan cautiously today irith an eye to protecting their plans for tax reductions. They were worried over the possibility Hint foreign ala could PUSH government spending above the point where taxes could be cut and the budget still kept In balance. Hence, as one of them put It,' "all the blubber" must be squeezed from European requests for financial help.' Asked if' the Marshall plan-'" could ' Jeopardize plans for a tax-cutting bill, this Republican spokesman on t»\ legislation replied tersely: "It could." Sen. Robert A. Taft, n., O., who usually speaks for Senate Republicans on domestic policy, already has endorsed the administration view, that foreign aid should come out of current-tax revenues and not out of new budget deficits. Defer Tax Decision Until 1048 If the bill for long-range foreign std threatened to upset the current balanced budget, thc Republican majority 4 In Congress would have to probe for other soft spots in the budget unless they abandoned their tax bill- While the Republicans have shelved their tax-cutting plans for the special session, they also have made it clear lhat they will keep It in mind as they watch the development of the European aid program. It appeared that work .on the tax bill would proceed parallel with legislation to carry out thc Marshall plan early next year. Tlia' situation would not necessarily bar passage of a tax bill before the Marshall plan bill, but It would delay the measure at least until the amount of money Involved In European aid was clearly known. Truman's congressional lieutenants, According to one of President the President Is still opi>oscd lo cutting income taxes now Just as tie was last Spring when he twice successfully vetoed two Republican-sponsored measures. Se« Room for Tax Cuts The Republicans, however, arc still quarreling with the administration arguments against a tax cut. Citing national Income estimates running above those of Inst Spring, they say > present lax rates will produce a budget surplus of about ,»7,00€,000,000 during the fiscal year ending next June 30, less whatever \ new commitments arc ' made for spending abroad. [ - The $7,000,000.000 figure for surplus contrasts wllh the $4,700,000,000 estimate of Mr. Truman lust • August. .The administration will new, appropriations totaling ,_,,>57,000,OQO for foreign aid during ',.thi current, fiscal 'year. Since '•priding lags behind appropriation*, congressional approval of that fuB amount would boost the spcnri- • int'figure for ''the year by about »2,000,000,000, : leaving $5.000,000,- ment, according to Republican es- 000 for tax cuts and debt retlro- tlmates.
