My State of the Union Address was devoted to what I believe are the highest priorities facing our Nation in 1979 as we seek to build a new foundation at home and abroad. However, my Administration's time and effort this year will also be focused on a significant number of other important initiatives and goals.

I am sending this State of the Union Message so that the Members of the 96th Congress are presented with a full picture of my basic legislative program in domestic and foreign affairs for the year. Over the past two years, my Administration has developed a very cooperative relationship with the Congress.

That relationship not only resulted in the extraordinarily productive record of the 95th Congress, but will provide the foundation for a renewed sense of trust and confidence by the American people in their government. We have an enviable record to match. But with your help, the 96th Congress can meet this challenge.

My Administration and I are eager to help in the effort. Our basic goals will be to continue working with you to build solid foundations for the next century -- a solid economic foundation of stable prices and continued growth -- a solid foundation for a more efficient, less intrusive Federal government -- a solid foundation for world peace and American security.

When I took office two years ago, the country faced serious domestic problems: • the economy had not recovered from a recession; • unemployment was intolerably high at 7.8%, with 7 3/4 million Americans out of work; • the Nation had no sound energy policy and oil imports were rising rapidly; • the Federal government was operating inefficiently in numerous vital areas; • trust in the openness and integrity of the government was low; • major social problems were being ignored or inadequately addressed by the Federal government.

In the ensuing two years, we have tackled these problems head-on. While problems cannot be solved overnight, real progress has been made: • the economy has strengthened -- real Gross National Product has increased 10% and real disposable personal income has increased 8.9%; • the unemployment rate has decreased by 25% since my election, from nearly 8% to 5.9%; 7.3 million new jobs have been created;

My Administration's major domestic priority is to reduce the rate of inflation, while maintaining economic growth. That is clearly the major domestic concern of the American people, and it is the problem they are looking to us to help solve. Inflation places a cruel burden on the poor and on those on fixed incomes.

It serves as a disincentive to investment. It threatens our continued economic growth and job creation. This is more than an economic challenge. Inflation is the persistent, historic enemy of a free society. It saps our confidence and faith in the future. It undermines our trust. I am determined to meet the challenge now before us.

Last October I announced an anti-inflation program which can aid significantly in the effort to reduce inflation. It is a tough and responsible voluntary program. Throughout this year, we will be working to implement our anti-inflation program. Part of the program requires new legislation, and we intend to work closely with you in developing and enacting that legislation.

The effort to reduce inflation will be one of the most difficult battles our government has undertaken in many years. But it is not a battle we can afford to lose. Government cannot solve the problem of inflation alone. But we can and must lead the way. With your cooperation, we can and will win. The 1980 Budget In announcing my anti-inflation program last year, I made a commitment to the American people to reduce the budget deficit for fiscal year 1980 to $30 billion or less.

The budget I submitted to the Congress honors that commitment. The FY '80 budget projects a deficit of $29 billion, which is less than half the deficit the Nation had when I ran for office and represents the smallest budget deficit in the last six fiscal years. The FY '80 budget has $531.6 billion in projected budget outlays, which is an increase of only 7.7% above the previous year.

That is the smallest annual increase in Federal spending in the last seven years. The $531.6 billion spending total also means that we will be meeting my goal of reducing Federal spending to about 21% of Gross National Product one year ahead of schedule. The decisions I had to make in restraining spending were difficult.

But if we are to succeed in breaking the back of inflation, Federal spending must be restrained to set an example for the private sector. If there were easier solutions, they would have been taken by now. Finally, I want to emphasize that my FY '80 budget does not neglect the basic needs of the disadvantaged, the poor, and the unemployed.

For instance, the budget will provide $4.5 billion in increased assistance to the poor. It also will provide a total of $11.2 billion for adult and youth employment and training programs, which will be especially targeted to the disadvantaged and long-term unemployed. Moreover there are significant increases for education programs for the disadvantaged and a new fiscal assistance program for our Nation's cities.

In short, this budget is austere, but it also maintains our commitment to help those in our country who most need it. Hospital Cost Containment One of my highest legislative priorities for this year is hospital cost containment. It will be one of the clearest tests of the seriousness of the Congress in dealing with the problem of inflation.

Clearly the most inflationary part of health care costs in recent years has been in the hospital industry. Last year, hospital charges grew at the rate of about 13 percent. Experience in several States has shown that through programs such as the one I will propose, hospitals can save money and reduce costs through sound cost containment practices.

I expect to shortly propose hospital cost containment legislation which will build on the proposal passed last year by the Senate. Real Wage Insurance I have proposed to the Congress a real wage insurance program to protect employee groups that comply with the 7% voluntary wage standard against losses in purchasing power if inflation exceeds 7%. If inflation exceeds 7%, these employees will receive a tax refund equal to their 1979 income up to $20,000 times the difference between the actual inflation rate (up to 10%) and 7%. This program will give workers a strong economic incentive to cooperate with the voluntary pay standards I have established, thereby helping to break the wage/price spiral that is at the root of the current persistent inflation.

This is a novel approach to the inflation problem. The persistence of high inflation for the past ten years makes clear that new solutions are needed. Innovative approaches must be added to the arsenal if we are to break the back of inflation. Real wage insurance represents the type of innovative approach which is required: it will provide a significant tax benefit for those working people who participate in helping to reduce the inflationary cycle, but without raising taxes for anyone else.

My administration intends to work very closely with Congress in developing and enacting a real wage insurance law. Voluntary Pay and Price Standards It is vital that our program of voluntary pay-price standards succeed. At stake is the reduced rate of inflation that all Americans demand and deserve. The cooperation of business and labor is obviously essential, and we have already had clear evidence of their willingness to join in this effort.

An effective anti-inflation program must involve a series of concerted attacks on the sources of rising prices in these vital sectors. In each of these areas, the Administration has established task forces to identify existing government policies that unreasonably inflate prices, and to suggest actions that can be taken, at both national and local levels, to combat inflation.

With these agreements, we expect to achieve major reductions in tariff and nontariff barriers to international trade.

Passage is essential to the successful completion of the Multilateral Trade Negotiations, and therefore, should be one of Congress' highest priorities at the beginning of this session. Exports The United States has entered a period where export growth is essential to improve our balance of payments, strengthen the dollar, and thereby help reduce inflationary pressures.

To do this, both the private sector and the Federal government must place a higher priority on exports. With the National Export Policy I announced last year, we are moving to meet this need. First, we are working to reduce domestic barriers to exports so that exporters are not stifled by excessive governmental regulation.

These actions should expand our exports in 1979 and help us move toward a reduced trade deficit, although they will not cure our serious balance of trade difficulties overnight. They are the first steps in an essential, long-term effort to strengthen the U.S. position in world trade, while reaffirming the Nation's commitment to maintain an open world trading system and to resist protectionism.

Council on Wage and Price Stability The Council on Wage and Price Stability is playing a vital role in our anti-inflation efforts. The Council and its staff have the lead responsibility within the Executive Branch for implementing the voluntary wage and price standards that I have announced. Without the Council's continuing role, the anti-inflation effort would have a very slim chance of succeeding.

I therefore believe it is essential that the Council, along with its staff operation, be reauthorized early this year with the additional staff I will request to handle the enormous volume of work under my anti-inflation program. The reauthorization should not contain amendments that interrupt or restrain the necessary work of the Council or its staff.

The Administration, working closely with Congress, has made significant progress over the last two years in reducing unemployment and creating new jobs: • The December unemployment rate of 5.9% represents almost a 25% reduction from the December, 1976 rate. • 7.3 million more people have jobs than they did before the beginning of the Administration.

This increase exceeds the employment growth in any other two-year period since World War II. • Total employment has reached an all-time high of 95.9 million. • Over the past two years black employment is up by 12%; and black teenage employment is up by 19.7%; adult female employment has increased by 10.5%; teenage employment overall has increased by 11%. Although progress has been made, unemployment remains unacceptably high for these groups.

And in inner-city areas unemployment remains much too high for all workers. Last year, which ended with the lowest unemployment rate in 3 years, a framework for continued progress into the next decade was established: • the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) was reauthorized at high levels for four more years; • the Humphrey-Hawkins Full Employment Act became law after many years of effort; • the Administration's demonstration youth programs were extended for two more years; • a new partnership between the government and the private sector to assist the unemployed was approved by Congress with the passage of a new Title 7 of CETA -- the Private Sector Initiatives Program;

In 1979 this framework will help us continue to improve the employment prospects for America's workers.

We expect to achieve these goals through a number of actions: First, we will continue working toward achievement of the Humphrey-Hawkins Full Employment Act goals. We will provide an average of 546,000 CETA public jobs, and shift many of them to the longterm or "structurally" unemployed. We will continue to search for the most promising ways to reduce the structural unemployment that denies many the opportunity for full participation in American life.
