Washington Front

November 1955
America;11/19/1955, Vol. 94 Issue 8, p201
The author reflects on the topics discussed by Cabinet members who visited President Dwight Eisenhower in the sickroom in 1955. The visitors told newsmen that they only discussed matters of no major importance but the author suspects that the budget was discussed. He adds that the Secretary of the Treasury could have discussed the budget since he is the one who advises the President on how much the Government income will be in the coming fiscal year. He concludes that the final budget will be determined by the Congress in the coming session.
