Session Fails to End Impasse on Budget
President Reagan and senior Republican senators met Wednesday, but they appeared to make little progress in bridging their differences that have stalled action on a fiscal 1987 budget.
“I expressed my views. I didn’t change mine. I don’t think the President changed his,” said Sen. Pete V. Domenici (R-N.M.), chairman of the Senate Budget Committee. Domenici said Reagan “was most concerned about the taxes” contained in a spending plan that is stalled in the Senate.
The budget proposals Reagan submitted to Congress on Feb. 5 attracted virtually no support in either the House or the Senate.
