The chairman of the House tax-writing panel Sunday unveiled a package of spending freezes, tax hikes and modest defense cuts that he said would wipe out the federal deficit within four years. Rep. Dan Rostenkowski (D-Ill.), who chairs the Ways and Means Committee, said that the combination of a freeze on most federal spending, a 3% annual cut in the military budget and increased user taxes on items such as gasoline and cigarettes could shrink the $166-billion budget deficit to zero by 1994.

The Bush Administration Monday offered a surprisingly supportive response to a proposal from a leading Democrat to wipe out the federal deficit in part by raising taxes and freezing Social Security benefits.
