THURSDAY, JANUARY 5, 1050 BLTnTEVTLT.E ( ARK.) COURIER NEWS THf NATION TODAY— Truman, Democrats and GOP Singing Same Political Tunes Heard So Often During 1949 By James Miirlow WASHINGTON, Jan. 5. (/I'j—The opening of the 1350 Congress was about as unusuul as listening to nil old phonograph record. President Truman handed Congress the program he wauls passed. But this was just the unfinished part of (he program he offered last year. Right away the Democratic lead-* .. , ers said (bis was a very wonderful program, Indeed, which is what they have been saying all along. And right away the Republicans condemned the program. "It's so- •cialistic," they said, which Is what they have been saying all along. ^ This briiiRs us to where ive were •when Congress quit for n few months last fall. Nothing's changed. As for the program. Congress probably will pass sonic of it, leave most unpassed, which is what it did with the same program last year, In Hie elections of 1050 and 1952 I lie vnlers oirght (n lie able lo nriNe a pirlly clear-en I choice iK'luTcn I)minerals ;uul Ke|iubll- caus to run Use country. They can by their votes show whether they want the Truman program or some program the Republicans offer by ejection time. T):ey don't hnve any program ol their own now- They're trying to figure out one, 'Die only way the voters --an show a real preference is by giving one .side or the other overwhelming control of Congress, which will mean emmgh votes for the winning .side to ram its program through. The Democrats now have a slim majority in Congress. But the Tru- nmnite Democrats become a minnr- iiy any time the Southern Democrats want to break away and vote with the Republicans. So long as this tipsy-downsy situation continues in Congress, with neither side in strong control, any program. Democrat or Republican, will have slow going, and we'll get more talk than action. In n two-party country like this. a fn irly wel 1 divkled Congress is ^a check, against either side going roo War too fast. That's the argument asainst too much control by any one party, The ofher Mde of (he argument is this: If at any time the voters give any one party big majority in Congress, it's because at that time the voters like that party's progran and want It carried out. If you reail Mr. Truman's message- lo Coiinress yesterday, you could almost see him laying Hie groundwork for Hie congressional elections laic Mils year. There were a number of things in that message—like civil rights and a national health Insurance system—which nobody I've found In Washington expects to see passed this year. Nevertheless, they're part of the Truman program, they've been part of it, and lie put them in his message. His plea for civil rights laws lie finished in a sentence. All he had to say on health insurance he said in a paragraph. There was no need lo say more since they're dead ducks this year but they'll serve as campaign material when elections come around because the Trumanites can point to them and say: "We wanted to put these thing, through in 1040 We wanted to prt (hem through again this year. lint we don't have enough votes in Congress. Give us the majority wi need." Ami the aiisuer of tbe volers ought to tell the Democrats and Republicans pretty clearly what Ihc people iniiil, or don't want.
