Williams Set
To Fight Tax Cut
By the Aaaoelatad Praaa
Senator Williams, Republican
of Delaware, said today there la
an increasing threat of inflation
which may reach "dangerous”
proportions soon unless checked.
Senator Williams, a member
of the Senate Finance Commit
tee, said that because of this
threat he will oppose tax reduc
tions in the next session of Con
gress unless projected revenues
indicate there will be a budget
surplus.
“I am opposed to cutting taxes
out of borrowed money,” he said.
"It looks like we might reach a
balanced budget next year, but
unless we can be assured that
revenues are going to continue
to go up, we would unbalace it
again by reducing taxes.
“That would add up to the in
flationary trend which already
has become dangerous.”
But Senator Williams said he
wasn’t closing his eyes to the
fact that 1956 is a presidential
election year. He said he and
[ others of like views probably will
i find themselves In a minority tt
t they oppose tax cuts.
