McGovern calls U.S. tax cut disgraceful

DETROIT (UPI) - Sen. George Mc
Govern, (D-S.D.) said yesterday an
$18.7 billion tax reduction awaiting
President Carter's signature is "a
disgrace to the human race," that will
benefit the rich and corporate interests
who, he charged, dominated the 95th
Congress.
McGovern, in a speech to United Auto

Workers Union leaders, also panned the
national energy bill as a "sellout to the
oil companies," and said unless Carter
and the Democrat-contrilled Congress
begin living up to the party's 1976 plat-
form, they could be in trouble in 1980.
"PRESIDENT Carter said when he
was a candidate, the tax system is a
disgrace to the human race,,"
McGovern said. "Well, I'll tell you that
this tax bill that we passed this week is
a disgrace to the human race.

"If the White House is going to hail
the 1978 tax bill as a great step for
social justice, they're just engaged in
double talk. They're white-washing
something that is of far greater benefit
to the rich and powerful than it is the
ordinary, working, middle-income tax-
payer."
McGovern said the bill gives 15 per
cent of the tax benefit to the top two per
cent income earners while 75 per cent of
U.S. taxpayers, those who earn $20,000

or less, get less than a third of the tax
break.
He said increases in Social Security
taxes beginning in January "will more
than offset any benefits of the tax
reduction that we voted into law."
MCGOVERN SAID the energy bill,
also passed in the final hours of the
congressional session, will do little to
meet the nation's energy needs but will
add.hundreds of dollars to the average
family's fuel bill.

"It's a 75 per cent sellout to the d
companies," McGovern said.
He said failure to take""meaningfu'
steps in tax reform, energy legislatic
and labor lawe reform were evidence tj
the "unresponsiveness" of Congress
the needs of people.
"This Congress has been more it
fluenced by big business and by speci
interests than any Congress in which
have served over the last 20 years;
McGovern said.

Kelley rival slams hiring record

LANSING (UPI) - Republican
challenger Stephen Bransdorfer said
yesterday Attorney General Frank,
Kelley's record of minority hiring "is
an affront to the minority citizens of
this state."
"The record of Mr. Kelley's failures
to champion the legal rights of our

minority citizens.is dramatically shown
in the hiring practices in Mr. Kelley's
own office," Bransdorfer said.
MR. KELLEY'S record of minority
hiring is an affront to the minority
citizens of this state. Indeed, it is an
embarrassment to all of us. The top
legal officer of this state should set an

example for state government."
Bransdorfer, a Grand Rapids attor-
ney, said only six per cent of the em-
ployees in the office of attorney general
are minorities. Minorities compose 14.8
per cent of the state's population.
Bransdorfer said Kelley's office has
the fourth lowest percentage of
minority employees among the state
departments,
HE SAID 10 of Kelley's attorneys are
minorities, compared with 147 white at-
torneys. "Mr. Kelley has been in of-
fice for 17 years. We, in Michigan, can-
not stand by any longer and watch the
chief law officer of this state do nothing
to vindicate the rights of our minority
brethren."
Kelley's chief assistant, Deputy At-
torney General Stanley Steinborn,
called Bransdorfer's criticism "very

unfair.
"YOU HAVE TO compare our num
ber of minority attorneys to the state
a whole,"he said.
"Only four per cent of lawyers ar
minorities. It's difficult for us ... to g
out and generally hire peopl
Everybody would like to hire minori
lawyers. We're doing the best we can.
Steinborn'said it is difficult for the a
torney general's office to attra c
minority lawyers because business
and private law firms often can pa
more than the state.
