Byrd, Douglas Renew Budget Cut Demand After Deficit Estimate!
ly th# A»iocioi«d Pr«i An estimated $14 billion two year Federal deficit brought fresh demands today from two Senate Democratic economy leaders for drastic cuts in Government ap propriations. Senators Byrd of Virginia, and Douglas of Illinois, termed the es timate—contained in a report of the Senate-House Committee on Internal Revenue Taxation — a new incentive for Congress to start swinging an ax on non essential spencmg. The report predicted $6.7 bil lion Federal deficit for the 1950 fiscal year, ending next June 30, or $1.2 billion more than Presi dent Truman’s January estimate. $7.3 Billion for 1951. It further predicted a $7.3 bil liono deficit for fiscal 1951, start ing next July 1, if the spending rate fixed in Mr. Truman’s bud get is approved by Congress. Mr. Truman had estimated a $5.1 bil lion deficit for fiscal 1951. Chairman George of the Joint Committee told the Senate that “disappointing collections, espe cially from individual income tax,” figured in the committee estimate. Senator Byrd, a member of the Joint Committee, told a reporter he thought the committee's esti mates were nearer the mark than those submitted by Mr. Truman. Domestic Spending Cited. , The Virginia lawmaker again called attention to figures showing that non-war connected domestic spending—excluding interest on the national debt, veterans bene fits, foreign aid and national de fense—had increased from $6 bil lion to $12 billion since 1948. Senator Douglas, in a separate interview, said the report’s figures ‘‘still further intensified the need for economy.” He urged reduction in the num ber of Government employes trimming down rivers, harbors and other public works projects and elimination of the potato, silver and flax "subsidies” to reduce the deficit. He again recommended increasing the second, third and fourth-class postal rates. EXCLUSIVE Southern Representative Of Warner-Weather Master Weather-Master Co. 2727 9th St. N.E.
