The Michigan Daily-Sunday, February 7, 1982-Page 3
Reagan's new budget outlined

WASHINGTON (AP)- The White
House released the budget yesterday
after lifting a Monday embargo. It was
already academic, major elements of
the spending plan had long since been
leaked to reporters.
Some of the components of Reagan's
new budget include:
" An 18 percent, or $33.6 billion, in-
crease in spending on the Pentagon and
on Energy Department nuclear
weapons.
* A $12.9 billion reduction in an-
ticipated spending for social benefits,
including Medicaid, Medicare, general

welfare, food stamps, child nutrition,
unemployment insurance, Veterans
Administration, student loans and
federal employee retirement plans.
" A $7.2 billion increase in business
taxes achieved through "loophole"
closings, such as the tightening of a law
requiring profitable corporations to pay
a minimum tax and the elimination of
business energy tax credits.
" A plan to revitalize distressed urban
areas by establishing "enterprise
zones" and offering tax-breaks, sub-
minimum wages and a relaxation of
regulations for businesses that move in-

to the areas. Without congressional ap-
proval of the savings, the deficit would
soar to $147 billion in 1983.
IN A MESSAGE accompanying his
budget, Reagan exhorted Congress to
stand by his program of tax cuts for
economic recovery:
The first year of the 97th Congress
will be remembered for its decisive ac-
tion to hold down spending and cut tax
rates.
Today, the question before us is
whether the second year of this
Congress will bring forward equal
determination, courage, and wisdom.

Clearly, there is a great deal more to
be done.
The general direction we must travel,
however, is clear. I urge the Congress
to weigh these budget proposals
thoughtfully, and to join me, and my
administration, in a constructive effort
to curb the growth of federal spending
and to provide for the nation's security.
We must, in the end, roll up our
sleeves, face our responsibilities
squarely, and persevere at the unen-
ding task of setting, and keeping, the
nation's affairs in order.

Reagan budget proposes largest deficit in history

(Continued from Page 1)
Spending on Medicare, food stamps, job training,
education, and dozens of other domestic programs
that were cut this year would be reduced by another
$27 billion during the new fiscal year, which starts
Oct. 1.
Congressional Republicans who fully supported
Reagan's budget plan last year appeared in a daze
over the weekend and talked about the prospect of
thoroughly rewriting the new budget.
DEMOCRATS SAID the record deficits Reagan is
predicting now are still unrealistically low. They said
the only way out is for Congress to reverse itself on

part of the record three-year tax cut it approved in
1981.
"I think the budget is unworkable, unwise, unfair
and unrealistic," said Sen. Alan Cranston (D-Calif.).
"Congress is not going to approve further deep cuts
that hurt people who have already been hurt."
House Democratic leader Jim Wright of Texas ac-
cused the administration of having a "derranged set
of priorities" to reduce job training by $2 billion while
proposing an additional $2 billion to build prisons.
And Sen. Robert Dole (R-Kan.), chairman of the
Senate Finance Committee, said that while Reagan's
budget is a '"credible" one, even Republicans might

be looking at ways to cut defense spending.
In his budget message, Reagan blamed the giant
deficits on the current recession, unexpectedly high
interest rates, a faster than anticipated decline in in-
flation and the failure of Congress to approve all the
budget cuts he sought last year.
Reagan's economic forecast of a year ago missed
the mark. It failed to predict 'the recession,
forecasting strong economic growth instead. The
forecast also underestimated how high unem-
ployment and interest rates would rise. Inflation,
however, came down even faster than the ad-
ministration expected.

Running for governor from Jackson State Prison

(Continued from Page1)'
earned something of a reputation as a
jailhouse lawyer. With some paralegal
training picked up in lawyers' offices
where he says he has worked, Jansson
represents himself in his trips to court.
He claims to have 34 active cases pen-,
ding against the Michigan Department
of Corrections for alleged violations of
his and other prisoners' rights.
TOM PHILLIPS, an administrative
assistant to the prison's warden,
describes Jansson as "a well-read,
well-educated man with some very
specific concerns which he's trying to
address."
"When I first got here," Jansson
says, "my main concentration was on
working on my case and getting the hell
out. But when I saw what happened in
the riots and the events leading up to
them, I couldn't turn my head
anymore."
After the riots, Jansson said he was'
instrumental in getting a judge to
release an unjustly accused prisoner
from "the hole," or solitary con-
finement.
"WHEN I DID that," he says, "that's
,when the prison began to hate me.
What bothered them was that an in-
mate helped another inmate and got
him out of the hole."
He says that the guards see him as a
threat, and there seems to be some
justification for the inmate's claim.
Although prison administrator Phillips
says that certain special accom-
modationshave been made for Jansson
to leave him more accessible to the
media, a Daily reporter and
photographer were prevented from

meeting with the candidate on their fir-
st trip to Jackson last month.
Jansson has filed a request to attend a
candidate's forum at Michigan State
University next month, but Phillips
says the warden's office has not yet
decided what to do about it. Among
other things, Phillips says he wants to
hear the attorney general's opinion on
the legality of Jansson's candidacy.
The opinion, which was requested in
September, is pending.
NOT SURPRISINGLY, practically
all of Jansson's dozen campaign
workers are either prisoners or ex-
convicts. Eve Reynolds, a convict ser-
ving time at a women's facility near
Pontiac, expresses the feelings of a
number of Jansson's supporters: "Half
of Michigan out there is guilty of
something, only they haven't been
caught., I'm not concerned with what,
he's done. I do believe in him."
Because most prisoners have little
political clout themselves, Jansson's
support comes from word of mouth.
"(Inmates) write their people and ask
them to vote for me, sign petitions, or
contribute," Jansson said. More than
26,000 signatures have been collected
alredy, Jansson says, although fewer
than 10,000 names are required to get on
the August ballot.
Jansson says he will wait until close
to the deadline in early June to file his
petitions. He says that if he is not
satisfied with any of the candidates by
that time, he will run.
THB COMMITTEE to Elect Jansson
Governor has raised more than $50,000,
the candidate says, the amount

required for state matching campaign
funds.
But those who an observer might
think could verify that claim don't
seem to know much about it.
Although Jansson calls John Wilson,
a Jackson County certified public
acountant; his campaign treasurer,
Wilson says that he hasn't had anything
to do with the campaign since the first
of the year. Wilson, who says he had to
withdraw because of his other accoun-
ts,"'does not want to be indentified with
the campaign.
The person who Jansson's committee
labels "Fundraising Director," says
she hasn't done any more than collect a
few signatures for the ,campaign and
doesn't know anything about the funds.
"I'm just a friend, helping him out,"
says Tonya Enright.
Jansson admits that he is not a. com

pletely qualified candidate. He says he
is a candidate simply searching for the
best for the people of Michigan.
"If I think I can win this thing, I'll
have my name on the primary ballot.
But I'm not going to waste those
people's vote's."

Speakers at local teach-in
blast El Salvador policy

(Continued from Page 1)
Topics of discussion ranged from the
history of the Salvadoran people's
struggles, to the possibility of a political
solution to the unrest in El Salvador.
"I came to raise my political
awareness," said LSA freshman Colin
Cowles. "As citizens, we havean
obligation to find out what's hap-
pening."
LAURA LEVIN, a junior' in the
School of Natural Resources, said she
"wanted to learn more about the issue.
It's a lot different from what you hear."
In an interview, Robert Armstrong, a
member of the North American
Congress on Latin America, said he
likes that kind of attitude. That's the
purpose of the teach-in, he said: "to
teach, to educate, so that people know
what's going on.
Ben Davis, the organizer of the teach-
in, said he was "veryapleased with the
turnout. It indicates a growing

awareness of the seriousness of the
growing problem in El Salvador," he
said.
A report from the Associated
Press was included in this story.
