Low, mniddle-income tax relief supported
From Wire Service Reports
WASHINGTON - A last-minute
compromise aimed at providing
greater tax relief to low- and middle-
income Americans was offered yester-
day with the support of the Carter ad-
ministration and apparently of House
Speaker Thomas O'Neill.
The proposal, sponsored by Reps.
James Corman (D-Calif.) and Joseph
Fisher (D-Va.), would result in a
greater tax cut for persons earning up
to $50,000 a year than would a bill ap-
proved last week by the House Ways
and Means Committee.
IN ADDITION, it would cut back
sharply in the capital-gains tax relief
that was approved by the committee.
"This proposal is an effort to develop
an alternative to the . . . Ways and
Means bill that would be more in line
with the traditional Democratic
position on tax reduction and capital
gains," Fisher told a news conference.
Treasury Secretary Michael Blumen-
thal told a news conference the plan put
forward by Fisher and Corman was a
no, i i
"significant improvement" from the
House Ways and Means Committee bill.
"WE WHOLEHEARTEDLY support
this constructive effort," Blumenthal
The House is scheduled to take up the
tax-cut billnext Thursday.
According to Treasury Department
figures, the bill approved by the Ways
and Means Committee would provide a
$62 tab cut in 1979 for a four-member
family earning $10,000 and having
deductions of 23 percent of income. The

"WHY DO THE H
Psalms 2:1 a
Several friends have suggested that we change the title, or
text of this column, and made good suggestions for another.
However, the further we go along the more appropriate we
think the above one is. It not only fits any situation that
arises, but also taken with its context explains it, giving
causes, warnings of judgment and curse, and pointing the
way to blessing and safety.
"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE" is the opening words of
the Second Psalm of God's Book, The Bible. God asks this
question. God answers this question. Believe it or not, this is
the God you will have to meet and give account of the deeds
done in the flesh when your spirit leaves the body and
returns to God who gave it "The heart in your bosom is a
'muffled drum' beating a march for you to the cemetery,"and
to the appointment the Almighty has made for you to appear
before His judgment seati God commands His people and
witnesses to warn men: "PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD -
WHETHER ANY HEAR, OR ANY FORBEARS" Webster says a
heathen is "one who does not believe in the God of The
Bible," and this fits in with what God Himself says in this
Psalm: "People who imagine a vain thing, kings and rulers
who set themselves against God, His King, His Government
and His Ten Commandments."The results of this rebellion is
God's laughter, God's derision, God speaking in wrath, and

The Corman-Fisher bill would cost
$18.1 billion in 1979, compared with
$16.2 billion for the Ways and Means
Committee bill. All the additional cost,
plus $300 million saved by allowing a
smaller reduction in capital-gains
taxes, would be earmarked for larger
individual tax cuts.
"We help those at the lower end by
increasing the tax credit from $25 to
$100," Fisher said.
Corman stressed that "we make no
change in the capital gains taxes except
for those who have large capital gains."

God vexing mankind in His sore displeasure. But in mercy
God informs the heathen He has set up His King upon the
holy hill of Zion, and calls the kings of the earth to be wise,
the judges of the earth to be instructed and "SERVE THE
LORD WITH FEAR - LEST HE BE ANGRY, AND YE PERISH
FROM THE WAY, WHEN IS WRATH IS KINDLED BUT A
LITTLE. BLESSED ARE LL THEY WHICH PUT THEIR
TRUST IN HIM."
We cannot hear God laugh. We can with the "eye of faith"
see evidences of His Derision, and the vexations He sends or
permits to come upon man; and with the "ear of faith"we can
hear Him speak in wrath! We think God "spoke in wrath" to
this whole ngation in commanding or permitting President
Kennedy to be suddenly cut off, and this Providential Act
was a rebuke to the nation for departing from the "faith and
foundations of our founding fathers." Since the tragedy we
have continued traveling away from these land-marks. Your
time is ahead to be cut off, and so is mine! Have you, are you
"Preparing to meet God?" Or, does pride and presumption
cause you to feel you are already "just right?"
THUS SAITH THE LORD: "IF YE WILL NOT BELIEVE, YE
SHALL NOT BE ESTABLISHED." The hope of our nation
and generation is in those who "TRUST AND OBEY, FOR
THERE IS NO OTHER WAY!"
