ursell labels Baker
in 'ultra-liberal'

The Michigan Daily - Thursday, October 23, 1986 - Page 3 ,.
Home run
Reagan campaign ends,

U.S. Rep. Carl Pursell con-
asted himself to challenger Dean
,aker, calling Baker an "ultra-
beral" and himself a "moderate
epublican," during a speech to a
litical science class yesterday.
Pursell (R-Mich.) told a political
ience current affairs class that
during his 10 years in Congress he
has gained a reputation as a catalyst
who gets things done. Hcited his
work as chairman of the committee
that wrote a draft of the national
budget for fiscal 1986-87.
N~' Pursell also discussed current
tsues on which he and Baker clash.
He pointed to Baker's apparent
support for unilateral disarmament,
which Pursell said is "un-
affordable." (In fact, Baker, a
University graduate student in
economics, believes the United
tates should simply stand by arms
proposals it has already made. "I'm
100 percent opposed to unilateral
isarmament," he said last night.)

Pursell said he supports U.S.
arms cuts only if the Soviet Union
agrees to respond in kind.
Referring to the U.S.-backed
Nicaraguan rebels, Pursell said,
"Yes, I did support Contra aid." He
called Nicaraguan president Daniel
Ortega a "communist Marxist who
wears a uniform like (Cuban
president Fidel) Castro." He also
noted Ortega's Moscow meeting
with Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev the day Congress voted
down aid to the Contras. He said
Ortega received $200 million in aid
from the Soviets.
Pursell condemned the protests
against Contra aid that took place
in his local office last spring,
saying the protesters "decimated my
office and threatened my staff,
especially the females."
He added, however, that he had
nothing to do with the arrests
because the building owner
requested that police arrest the
protesters on charges of trespassing.
Pursell said the protesters were
interested in "tactical harassment,"
not discussing issues.
The Daily also received some of
the Pursell's criticism. He called
The Daily's coverage of the sit-ins

like we've just played the World
Series of tax reform and the
American people won," President
Reagan said yesterday as he
completed a 16-month tax-overhaul
campaign with a signing ceremony
on the South Lawn of the White
The measure, the product of
intensive lobbying and a
compromise between a Republican-
led Senate and a Democratic-run
House, is a far cry from the
president's original proposal, but he
embraced it as a "sweeping victory
for fairness."
REPEATING a note he had
often sounded, Reagan told a crowd
of about 1,000: "Blatantly unfair,
our tax code became a source of
bitterness and discouragement for
the'verage taxpayer. It wasn't too
much to call it un-American."
Reagan told the audience that the
new tax code will be "fair and

eople won'
simpler for most Americans," will
"refuel the American growth," and
will "take us into a future of
technological invention and
economic achievement.
Key elements of the bill include:
-Tax cuts: Most taxpayers will
get a tax cut averaging 6.1 percent,
starting gradually in 1987 and fully
in effect for 1988. More than 20
million couples and individuals will
pay more, including one-fourth of
those with income between
$30,000 and $40,000. More than 6
million lower-income working
couples and individuals now on the
tax rolls will pay no tax.
-Standard Deductions: In,
1988, couples get $5,000, singles {
$3,000 and heads of household
$4,400; annual inflation
adjustments will follow.
-Deductions: Kills deductions
for state and local sales taxes;
consumer interest, such as credit
cards and car loans, and the special
writeoff for two-earner couples.

Reagan directs reduction
of long-range weapons

a duel over diplomatic expulsions,
President Reagan has directed U.S.
pegotiators to propose sharp
Freductions in long-range nuclear
weapons to the Soviets in
Geneva, administration officials
said yesterday.
A package of U.S. proposals,
including a defense of the "Star
Wars" anti-missile program, was
not as sweeping as the projectd
arms control measures Reagan
took up with Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev in Iceland, the
officials said.
ALSO, the instructions, sent

Tuesday night to chief U.S.
negotaitor Max Kampelman after
a Pentagon review, did not contain
any call for removing U.S. and
Soviet intermediate-range missiles
in Europe.
Butpthe officials, who
demanded anonymity, said there
would: be a follow-up package
expanding Kampelman's instruc-
tions and also dealing with the
Euromissiles after details are
worked out by U.S. arms
specialists here.
After returning from
Reykjavik, Reagan underscored
his determination to push for arms
control agreements in Geneva.
