12 Galesburg Reaister-Mail, Oalesburg, 111, Friday, Sept 13, 1963 Truman Never Passed Buck On Others By LYLE C. WILSON United Press International When Harry Truman took over on that April day in 1945, he cleared FDR's desk of a junky clutter and installed his own personal motto in a prominent spot. The motto read: "The buck stops here." HST was like that. He played politics for keeps, shot from the hip and, more often than not, wounded a fact or some innocent bystander. But he never laid off the blame on circumstances or associates. Nor did he duck the tough decisions that came his way. Tliis modest salute to the tough little man from Missouri was prompted by word from Albany, N.Y., and Washington, D.C., that the head men in those areas are reaching for an alibi to lay off STOP!

There was the Sept. 9 story from Albany in which Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller reneged on his 1962 campaign promise to hold the line on New York State taxes through 1966. Rockefeller said he didn't expect any new taxes next year but did not feel bound by his campaign promise thereafter. And, who is to blame for Rockefeller's need to renege on his promise? John F. Kennedy, that's who. The governor said he did not feel bound because his campaign promise not to raise taxes had been based on a national economic growth rate promised but unachieved by the Kennedy administration. President's Version As Al Jolson used to say, you ain't heard nothin' yet. On NBC's Huntley-Brinkley news show this week, President Kennedy was asked about the wisdom of seeking a tax cut when the budget remains far out of balance. He replied: "The reason the government is in deficit is because you have more than 4 million persons unemployed, and because the last five years you have had rather a sluggish growth, much slower than any other Western country." And there you have it. Kennedy tricked Rockefeller with a promise that the growth rate— and tax revenue—would zoom. So, it isn't Rocky's fault that he cannot make good on a major campaign promise that helped elect J him. Or, anyway, that is the way i Rocky would want you to view it. But the President, in turn, has been done in by the unemployed, 4 million of them, who ganged up to compel him to spend a gfeat many billions of dollars beyond his lax revenue. Government Costs Rise Neither statesman mentioned that in the administrations of each the cost of government has risen almost perpendicularly as though from Cape Canaveral. Both are big-time spenders. The President and the governor are making to look very good Parkinson's law on government expenditure and revenue. The law is that government expenditure will rise to meet and usually to exceed revenue. Federal revenue has risen from $81.4 billion in fiscal 1962 to $86.9 billion (est.), in fiscal 1964 while spending rose from $87.8 billion to $98.8 (est.,) for this fiscal year. Rockefeller's spending record is similar. All politicians tend to pass the buck on spending. It is not deemed dishonorable to spend other people's tax money to get elected or to keep your party in power. The voters could change that, if they would.
