Congress opens busy
From Associated Press reports
WASHINGTON The 101st
Congress convened its second session
Tuesday, facing an agenda suddenly
expanded by the emergence of democ
racy in Eastern Europe and a plan to cut
Social Security taxes at home.
Lingering issues also abound, in
cluding child care, capital-gains taxes
and deficit reduction.
Not waiting for President Bush to
send up his own budget and legislative
proposals, the Senate almost immedi
ately began debating a far-reaching plan
for cleaning up the air a bill that is
more costly and more sweeping than
the president wants. Opposition is based
more on geography and competing

The House made plans for another
confrontation on Wednesday, an at
tempt to override Bush's veto of legis
lation aimed at preventing the deporta
tion of Chinese students who have
sought refuge in the United States. The
House originally passed the bill on a
'There really is no good reason to
override the president's veto unless it is
just straight-out politics," said Senate
Republican Leader Bob Dole of Kan
sas. He said Bush has done as much for
the students through administrative
actions as the bill would do. But Repub
licans were generally conceding Bush
faces a one-sided defeat.
The first day of the session was
marked by friendly reunions.
Rep. Jack Brooks, D-Texas, told
colleagues he'd nearly died of a pan
creas ailment during the long break,
and he accepted hugs and applause on

Outside, a half-dozen House mem
bers arrived on bicycles after a two
block trip from a congressional office
building to call attention to plans for
Earth Day in the spring.
On a more substantive matter. Sen.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-N.Y.,
formally introduced a bill to reduce
Social Security taxes an idea that
had prompted a full-scale White House
attack when he proposed it last month.
Moynihan says workers are being de
ceived because their Social Security
taxes are being used to make the federal
deficit appear far smaller than it is.
'These are insurance contributions,
they are premiums paid," Moynihan
told a news conference. "They do not
belong to the government. If we are not
going to save them we should return
Sen. Ernest F. Hollings, D-S.C, a
member of the Budget Committee, did
what is seldom done in Congress these
days. He introduced a bill proposing a
tax increase. He recommended a five
percent national sales tax that would
exempt food, health care and housing.
Hollings said that would raise enough
money to rol 1 back Social Security taxes,
cut taxes on capital gains from stocks
and bonds, expand tax-deductible Indi
vidual Retirement Accounts and create
a revenue-sharing program for state
and local education.

CIA director: E. European
revolutions cut Soviet threat
From Associated Press reports
WASHINGTON The director
of the Central Intelligence Agency
told Congress Tuesday that Eastern
Europe's tumultuous push for de
mocracy has cut the Soviet threat to
the West and that "we can probably
expect a continued diminution."
William Webster, in an unusual
public appearance before the Senate
Armed Services Committee, said that
as unchallenged communist control
comes to an end in the Eastern bloc,
those nations' links to Moscow have
been radically changed.
The result, he said, is a severe
blow to the Soviet Union's certainty
that Eastern Europe will respond to
Moscow's military directives.
The armed services committee is
beginning work on writing a defense
budget for fiscal 1991 with an as
sessment of the Soviet threat to the
Workers strike in East Germany
EAST BERLIN More than
10,000 skilled workers held a rally
Tuesday to denounce communism
for killing East German craftsman
ship and demand free-market reforms
to revive it.
"We absolutely and uncondition
ally need conversion to a full market
economy," Burkhard Schmidt,
spokesman for the Craftmen's Un
ion, told The Associated Press be
fore the rally. Many of those attend
ing also favored reunification with
"Better to close for four hours
News in Brief
than forever," said Lutz Scheibner,
an electronics repairman. "We need
to show the government we know
what needs to be done."
The rally was called on short no
tice, over the opposition of top union
leaders still loyal to the Communist
system that rewarded them with
comfortable bureaucratic positions.
Jackson silent on mayoral plans
WASI IINGTON Jesse Jackson
kept mum about his plans Tuesday,
silent at the center of attention in a
political vacuum created in the
nation's capital by the cocaine arrest
of Mayor Marion Barry.
Ill with the flu since the weekend,
Jackson was said to be "going over
all the options" out of the public eye.
Will he or won't he? That was the
question dominating political discus
sion of the mayoralty situation in the
"I don't think Jackson will do it,"
said David Clarke, city council presi
dent and the only white candidate for
mayor of the predominantly black
city. Should Barry resign his post,
Clarke would become mayor, pend
ing a special election.
Barry was in a clinic in Florida,
and aides said that while he had turned
over day-to-day operations of the
District government to city adminis
trator Carol Thompson, he was giv
ing no thought to resigning.
