The Cost of Jimmy's Platform

October 1980
National Review;10/17/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 21, p1242
The article supports the view of U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch that U.S. President Jimmy Carter's Democratic Platform would be costly for taxpayers. According to Hatch, implementing the platform would raise federal spending above the already high Budget Committee projections. These projections pale in contrast to the tax reduction proposals in the Republican Platform.
