A local rancher told a revealing story Saturday at a local reception for Steel: man. Two years ago when the cattle market bottomed out and beef cost more to *'else than it brought at the uction barn, ranchers and farmers formed self help organizations all over the tate A delegation traveled to Washington to appeal to ::ongress for help. "Bentsen wouldn't even talk to us," reported the rancher. "I voted for him last time, but I'm not going m vote for him again." Although the Democratic party claims to be the champion of rural Americans it seems sadly unaware of of and areas. We want relief from high taxes, high energy bills, and inflation. The Democra- tic controlled Congess gives us welfare projects, compul- sory health plans, revenue sharing, price controls, make work jobs for the unemploy- ed, spending billions and billions of dollars above the national budget. Each billion dollars spent by the federal government costs each of us $14 a year in taxes. When you see that billion dollar figure, multiply the number in your family :by $14 and that's your share f the national budget. ,We ask for economic relief ongress gives us bread rcuses.

That's why they voted against their automatic pay raise this year, and that's why they have sustained so many of the President's vetoes. Congress mere seek to appease the voters in an election year who cry for economy in government, but at the same time they cannot sacnfic th votes of thOse who believe in the welfare state. So we have had legislature during the past two weeks involving, more massive government spend- ing. Let's be all things to all people, says Congress, even if it ruins the country.
