Young Disagreed with Carter on Social Programs

Responding to Jimmy Carter’s statement that if elected president he would delay social programs to balance the budget, Georgia fifth district Congressman Andrew Young told reporters that “is one of the things we’ll have to fight about.” Apparently, any fighting that followed was friendly, for Carter later appointed Young as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.
