There are many reasons for the
belief that the Congressional "log
jam," which has neld up much
important legislation, is about to
be broken. Hearings on the Presi
dent's court plan have been com
pleted. The Chief Executive's
budget message has clarified the
situation with reference to Fed
eral expenditures. It is clear that
enlarged relief expenditures and

new projects cannot be under
taken without new taxes. And
there seems to be no sentiment in
Congress favorable to new taxes.
As a result, leaders are endeav
oring to cut appropriations and to
hold relief expenditures down to
the billion and a half recom
mended by the President. If pos
sible, that amount will even be
reduced. Should these moves be
successful, excise taxes scheduled
| to expire in June and July will be
reenacted, perhaps for another
year, and that will be the extent
of tax legislation during the first
session of the present Congress.
However, should pressure from
various Congressional blocs result
in new and larger expenditures
than are provided in the budget,
it may mean tax revision before
Congress adjourns. And tax re
vision during the summer months
in Washington is a slow and dif
ficult undertaking. Everyone
hopes that it can be avoided.
In the final analysis, the course
of the Congress will be governed
largely by the desires of our peo
ple. If they want new expendi
tures, they must be prepared to

foot the bills. If they want re
duced expenditures, they should
make their wishes known. These
statements cannot be repeated
too often. They are of utmost
Importance to our people.
Nevertheless, we have timely
warning that the day is fast ap
proaching when our system of
producing revenue must be over
hauled. Loopholes must be clos
ed and inequities removed. Our
tax bases must be broadened.
Expediency in levying taxes must
give way to equity. We should
consider the effect of certain
forms of taxes on business and,
in turn, on labor and on the far
mer. Much of the present condi
tions, and those we have gone
through, may be attributed to the
way in which we have pyramided
taxes, Federal, state and local,
without regard for their effect.
Therefore, we may anticipate,
that tax revision in 1938—if ne
cessity does not force it earlier—
will be approached on a sound
basis. Such an approach has
been too long delayed, although
the need for it has been recog
nized by the nation's fiscal ex
For example, late in 1932, a
subcommittee of the House Ways
and Means Committee studying
Federal and state taxation and
duplications therein, made a pre
liminary report. Let me quote
from the statement made by the
able chief of staff of the Joint
Congressional Committee on In
"At the completion of some
months of study of our taxation
system as a whole, it is our opin
ion that very substantial im
provements can be made therein,
through cooperation between the
Federal Government and the
states. The tax burden is great
and the public is fully conscious
of this burden in these times of
stress. A more equitable distri
bution of the burden and its ul
timate reduction through a ju
dicious curtailment in expendi
tures would doubtless not only be
welcomed by the public but would
also have a most beneficial effect
We should ask ourselves the
Which taxes are most adapt
able for the use of the Federal
Government and which taxes are
most adaptable for the use of the
What taxes may be properly
imposed, if any, by both state and
Federal Governments without ser
ious objection from the stand
point of equity?
We must give our citizens a fair
and just system of taxation, free
from loopholes and inequities,
and we must also give our people
a full measure of value for their
tax dollars. This will require
the reduction in expenditures
now sought by the President.
