2 · Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Tuesday, Oct. 15, 1974 FAYCTTIVILLE, ARKANSAS In Speech Before Underwriters Hammerschmidt Defends His Voting Record Schmidt voted against consumer interest in all By PEGGY FR1ZZELL TIMES Staff Writer In an after-dinner address Monday night to the Northwest Arkansas Association of Life I n s u r a n c e Underwriters (NAAL1U), Congressman John Paul Hammerschmidt commented on recent legislation in Washington, D.C. Hammerschmidt praised the Budget Control and Impoundment Act of 1974 as being the most important way to bring about fiscal responsibility and labeled the upcoming national health insurance bill "an idea ahead of its time." S p e a k i n g to the approximately 150 insurance men and guests attending the N A A I L U annual awards banquet at the Holiday Inn, Hammerschmidt said the past year has been a tumultous one, much to the detriment of Congress' normal business. Still, several bills he thought important were passed and signed into law, he said. In discussing the Budget C o n t r o l a n d Impoundment Act, the Congressman from the t h i r d Congressional Di6trict said he is convinced that federal spending in recent years has far exceeded what it should. He said that 75 per cent of the national budget is listed as "uncontrollable" in that it has been appropriated to a program in past years and has to be i n c l u d e d in progressive budgets. EXAMPLE Hammerschmidt listed the example of a program that may have been effective when it began 30 years ago but no longer is. "This is an opportune time to put this program to rest," he said, noting he had voted against it. The House of Representatives did not go far enough in establishing regulations included in t h e C o m m i t t e e Reform Amendments, Hammerschmidt said. But. he added, what revisions were included did help. He mentioned the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1974, noting he had voted against a provision that was finally dropped from the act; the public financing of congressional ra c e s. Hammerschmidt r e f e r r e d to the act as the "clean election law" that provides $20 million in tax check-off controls for each presidential campaign. Referring to the Employe Retirement Income Security Act of 1874 as landmark legislation in getting retirement benefits for many citizens, Hammerschmidt s a i d the federal regulation of private pension plans open "a vast new market f o r i n s u r a n c e salesmen." STUDY NEEDED In his comments on the several versions of a national health insurance bill now under . v.study, Hammerschmidt said . Congress needs to ask if this type of program is an idea ; ahead of its time. Is health care a public or private respon- · sibility, he asked? Who should ·! pay for health care? What is .- the government's role? He said . several hard questions will have ., to be answered before the issue · is decided in Congress. competition" to the insurance industry.

DEFENDS VOTE He defended his vote against a provision to include a safety belt ignition lock and restraint in automobiles. Such a law removes one. of the people's individual freedoms: whether or not to use a safety belt, he said.
