An emergency budget cutting session, under the watchful eye of the press. Wisconsin Congressman David R. Obey is at the far right of the table. Opposite him is Stuart Eisenstad, President Jimmy Carter's domestic policy adviser. At the end of the table are Speaker Jim Wright and Senators Robert Byrd and Alan Cranston. The table is covered with notebooks, papers and many cups of coffee. This photograph appeared in Obey's autobiography, "Raising Hell for Justice."
