Most People Are Confused Over Tax Cut By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP)-For dramatic suspense the tax cut proposal has Nad few equals. Most citizens seem to have adopted the attitude of wait and see, building few hopes on the conflicting moves in Congress. Many are honestly confused as to the extent of the benefits or of the dangers if the federal budget is thrown further off balance. Others think that whatever the federal government might allow them would be promptly taken away by state and local governments. American businessmen and many stock market regulars have been more optimistic. Some have taken the cynical view that when the 1964 election campaigns really heat up, some form of tax cuts will look irrestitible to Congress. immediate tax cuts were first proposed by a vociferous group at the time of the stock market break in May 1962 because they saw a recession breathing down our necks. The idea was shelved for a time because business and consumers alike largely ignored the stock market as a barometer of hard times coming. Plans for a tax cut linked with tax reforms were set forth officially last January. Their chances have waxed and waned almost as regularly as the moon, depending on whether business was hesitating or spurting ahead, and no how congressmen interpreted the enthusiasm or worries of the folks back home. Most of the reform proposals were sidetracked. The tax bill now before the House and headed toward an uncertain time schedule in the Senate is based largely on an effort to make the economy grow faster and thus provide the additional jobs needed to solve today's unemployment and to meet an oncoming rush of youngsters into the labor force. This was the pitch that President Kennedy made Wednesday night for his tax proposal. The idea is that a cut in the rates of taxes on individual incomes will give millions of Americans more money to spend on goods or services, or to make down payments on things they now want but can't quite afford. And the better-off would have more money to invest. Such investment, along with the extra cash that corporations could keep if the corporate income tax rates were lowered, would finance more business ventures or expansion. The additional consumer spending, plus the increased investment, would lead to more production, and hence more jobs.
