(MM* Pirn h/tmmrt •. Ito iVfrigi man and hH family have § personal rfake in a r» part the U. S. Twaaury wifl make In a cmjple (rfdaya tothe Am* kan people, The Treasury will re- part that the government haa rack* ed up another deficit for fiscal year IMS. Fiscal '«3 will end at midnight next Sunday, This will be the 27lh federal deficit alhce 1930, The personal stake of the average man Is that these deficits have contributed to the larceny of his savings, his in- aurance; his money in pocket by a process known aa currency in- flat ion. tile average Irian's doifat which was worth 106 cents in purchasing in 1999, is worth only 45.0 cento today. The average man who obtained a $10,000 life insurance policy in 1939 has today a $4,560 life insurance policy in terms of purchasing power. In terms of bacon, beans and,baby shoes, rent, doctor's bills or what have you, that $10,000 life insurance policy has depreciated in value since 1939 by $5,440, more than half. The Treasury's deficit record is not merely shameful; it is a direct and dangerous challenge to the American way of life. The average man and Woman does not seem to be aware of what these endless deficits have done and r r what they will do if they are continued* If the victims of this grand of larceny were aware it, they would rebel at the polls. Under Both Parties The politicians of both parties in the White and the Congress share responsibilities for these deficits, but not equally. Democratic presidents and Congress have shown less interest, if any, than have Republicans in prudent management of the nation's finances. Franklin D. Roosevelt's campaign promises to balance the federal budget and to reduce government expenditures lasted.only a few weeks into his first term. FDR did not achieve a balanced budget in any year of his White House service. Harry S Truman came up with three balanced budgets in his eight veal's. Two of ^^^^ these were int[ the Republican 80th Congress he so deplored. ; Dwight D. Eisenhower balanced the budget thrice. In fiscal 1959 Ike was* embarrassed by the largest peacetime deficit so far, $12.4 billion. John F. Kennedy is 0 for 3, including fiscal '63. His program projects Treasury deficits through fiscal 1967. If it is a fact that Treasury deficits gnaw at dollar values, then the* average man is in for more lumps. Continues Downward The two-bit dollar is not far down the deficit road which the i U. S. government has followed since 1930. Pressure groups for ending and politicians who buy votes with the voters' own tax money ere mostly responsible for the failure of the U. S. government to live within its income. Citizens have been lulled and gulled with the politicians 1 story that the big spending is all in the cause of national defense. Balo- National defense spending one-third ney! has been reduced by since fiscal 1943 when the United States was in a hot war. But in the same 20-year period, non- defense spending has increased ''five fold from about $6 billion to about $30 billion. Sen, Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., recently cited the hard fact that $17 billion of a $20 billion increase in federal spending since the Korean War in 1953 has been for domestic pro- strictly grams, projects, purposes and interests, A great deal of that is tax money the politicians vote to •pend back home 30 that they can be re-elected. It won't be long now. A bus ride downtown will cost one buck.
