St. Dinner tonite for Nat. Gov’s. Conf. Watched them this afternoon on T.V. A half dozen Dem gov’s. kept sounding off on how our programs were unfair & favored the rich—paralyzed the poor. Their ans? cut defense spending. Our Bud. for H.H.S. is the biggest & highest % of Bud. in history. It is 36.7% of the bud. Defense is only 26.7%. Food stamps are budgeted at $4 bil more than in 1980 & 3 mil. more people are getting them. As for taxes favoring the rich—they are 25% across the board and indexing the tax brackets does nothing for the rich they are already in the top tax bracket. I’m host tonight I’ll try not to get in an argument. Pearl Bailey entertains.
