"Let's Run on the Record"

Fitzsirnmons, Tom
July 1954
New Republic;7/26/54, Vol. 131 Issue 4, p8
The U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower has made proposals in 11 major legislalative areas. As of July 15, 1954. with two weeks to go, he had won U.S. Congressional approval of three important measures: Social Security, the St. Lawrence Seaway, and Foreign Aid. Three of his "urgent" requests had been rejected outright: Taft-Hartley revision, Hawaii Statehood, and Reciprocal Trade. The Administration's omnibus tax bill passed the House substantially as the President wanted it. And in the Senate, anti-Administration efforts to give, relief to the individual taxpayer and to reduce the 25 percent tax write-off allowed oil magnates were defeated.
