And He Wants To Do Something About It. 66We need a Congress that will fight the inflation which made the average Arkansas family 5% poorer last year, which forced itto consume up to 7% less food, and which threatens to increase its bills by over 13% this year. First, Congress should cut this year's federal budget substantially. Second, Congress should start planning its future budgets by taking the projected rate of inflation into account. Third, Congress should move toward a balanced budget. President Nixon has increased our national debt by more than the four previous Presidents combined, and the costs of financing this debt promotes inflation. Fourth, Congress should move to streamline and cut back on the enormous federal bureaucracy; much of which is too costly, takes government too-far away from the people, and fails to meet the real needs of those whom the bureaucrats are supposed to serve.
