WASHINGTON (UPI) — President
Reagan’s big budget victory in the
House goes far beyond any economic
benefits or disasters that may loom
ahead for the nation.
It showed how the right kind of
pressure and the right circumstances
— a popular president pushing a
popular idea and knowing how to lobby
effectively — can make almost
anything happen in Congress.
In this case the thing that happened
was that 217 congressmen voted for an
amendment they had just seen a few
hours earlier, which is not in itself so
But this particular amendment,
although not numbered, appeared to be
about 800 pages long. It was so hastily
written that it had notes scribbled in the
margins that actually would bring
changes in law. (Speaker Thomas
O’Neill seemed disgusted by a woman’s
name and telephone number on one
margin and asked if she was being
written into law.)
This amendment became the bulk of
the one of the most farreaching single
pieces of legislation ever passed by
Congress, touching nearly every
domestic program of the federal
government in some way.
It contained about $38 billion in
spending reductions for next year.
That is what the House voted for on
Friday, June 26, within six hours after
most members received a copy.
Many Republicans and some con-
servative Democrats believed this
measure, passed 217-211, was needed
for President Reagan to accomplish his
goal of bringing the economy under
But, Republican and Democratic
observers say that is not the reason this
precise measure was passed. The 217

problems with its contents, thinking it
would be disastrous for their con-

Reagan, in California, had been
calling and promising with a zeal.
One Republican source who asked not
to be identified said he believed Reagan
was supported by 29 Democrats be-
cause of “the prospect of a popular
president coming into their districts
and putting his arm around a

“There wasn’t a single member of
Congress in either party or a single
staff member of either party who knew
enough to know what was in that
document and to explain it quickly,”
Rep. Thomas Foley, D-Wash., the No. 3
Democrat in the House, said recently.
That sentiment was echoed over and
over by Democratic stalwarts. House
party leader Jim Wright of Texas
repeatedly attacked the “few self-
appointed people" who “clandestinely”
drafted the bill.
Democratic leaders backed another
version of the budgetcutting bill, which
was drafted by 15 House committees.
The measure that passed had not
been studied during the congressional
hearing process. Most bills are, and the
House usually depends on committee

Republican from New York, said he did

atmosphere of the House last week.

The result was what Democratic
leaders feared and warned against — a

WASHINGTON (NEA)-The Reagan
administration continues to deny that
political deals were responsible for the
president’s recent budget victory in the
House of Representatives.
But mounting evidence indicates that
many, if not all, of the 29 House
Democrats who supported the ad-
ministration were influenced by
promises extracted from the president
and his aides in the final hours—even
the final minutes—before the
Four of the Democratic defectors
come from Louisiana, where sugar is a
major crop and sugar price supports
are a major political issue. The
president telephoned those legislators
to suggest that he and his party would
accept whatever program of sugar
price supports came out of Congress
These calls were quickly followed by
calls from Department of Agriculture
Secretary John Block, who stated
directly what Reagan had openly hinted
on the issue of price supports. These
calls, coupled with promises of in-
creased price supports from House
Republican leaders, were enough for
the four Louisianans.
Eight more defectors come from
Texas, where natural gas is a major
issue. Congress was inspired by the
natural-gas crisis of a few years ago to
pass an emergency bill that included a
section mandating that many com-
mercial users of natural gas switch to
coal and setting up a timetable for the
conversion that was about to take ef-
Natural gas now is in good supply. In
fact, many suppliers are having trouble
getting rid of all the gas they are
producing. So, the law has not been
popular among the Texans, who con-
veyed their feelings on the matter to
Reagan’s political operatives as the
important votes neared.
Guess what? Repeal of the offending
section was added to the Republican
substitute. Thus, by voting for the
administration's budget, a legislator
would also be voting to strike down the
conversion provision. The result was
eight defections from Texas
Other defectors had concerns ranging
from synfuel plants planned for their
districts to cotton price supports to
mass transit subsidies to continued
federal funding of Conrail. The
Republican substitute contained
provisions—often hastily penned at the
last minute Increasing funding in all of
Other potential defectors had to be
reassured that an earlier deal would not
be undone. In preliminary budget
voting, several Southern Democrats
had agreed to defect after being
assured by the president and his
operatives that the administration
would not compaign against their re-
election in 1982. The president publicly
repeated this assurance, saying, “I
could not in good conscience campaign
against any of you Democrats who have
But several Republican campaign
organizations, notably the Republican
Congressional Committee, had started
to renege on the issue. They began
saying, In effect, that the president had
not been speaking for them and they
they would bring Republican
heavyweights into any district where
the Democratic incumbent was
In the final hours before the budget
votes, the president and his aides had to
convince several fence-sitters that
Reagan could deliver on his previous
pledge. Only after this had been
specifically guaranteed did several
representatives agree to again vote
with the administration.
So, Reagan’s statements that those
who backed his budget proposal
represented "a new coalition” that was
listening "to the voice of the people"
must be accepted with at least a little
suspicion. So must Budget Director

a few small adjustments” were made

Speakes’ contention that “the few
compromises were not of significant
dollar value. ’’

WASHINGTON — All 100 members of
the U.S. Senate went on strike today
following their fifth refusal in as many
years to vote themselves a pay raise.
The vote that precipitated the
walkout was a 79-21 rejection of a
House-passed bill that would have
raised the base pay of members of
Congress by 6.2 percent.
Picket lines were set up outside the
main entrance to the Senate chamber
and at the doors of the major standing
