ABSTRACT
The article presents information on political developments related to the U.S. The latest economy move of the U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower's administration cut deeply into the public-health and hospital-construction programs. The U.S. House whacked $63.8 million from the proposed budget for the Public Health Service. And by a margin of only six votes, the House defeated an attempt to increase the hospital construction appropriation for the Department of Health, Education and Welfare by $25 million. The $25 million cut means that approximately 7,500 beds cannot be provided despite Public Health Service estimates that an additional 200,000 general hospital beds are needed today.
