Press Briefing by Dee Dee Myers
February 25th, 1993

The Briefing Room

5:41 P.M. EST

Q: How much do you make?

MS. MYERS: Not enough. Not enough.

How about a few details about tomorrow's schedule.

Q: Yeah, yeah --

MS. MYERS: Very exciting. The President will leave here around 9:25 a.m. tomorrow on his way to American University. The speech will begin at approximately 10:00 a.m., with introductions. He'll attend a brief VIP reception at American University before returning to the Oval Office. And then the rest of the afternoon will be with staff meetings, private meetings. And that's it.

And the radio address --

Q: And he goes to Camp David, right? (Laughter.)

MS. MYERS: For better or for worse, he is not going to Camp David. He'll be giving the radio address at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday. And this point that's the only event scheduled for the weekend. We expect the rest of it to be down, but, of course, that could change.

Q: On the American University speech, George was saying that it's going to be primarily about the economic plan.

MS. MYERS: It's global economics.

Q: All right. Some other people are talking around town, saying it's going to be mainly about trade.

MS. MYERS: It's not going to be mainly about trade. It's more of sort of an outline of his global economic philosophy, how he thinks the plan will impact the global economic situation. I'm sure he'll touch on trade, but that is not the main thrust of the speech. Although you can't really talk about the international economic situation without talking some about trade.

Q: Is this preceding the G-7 meeting in London on Saturday with the finance ministers -- is there any tie-in between the two of those?

MS. MYERS: Not directly, but obviously, it will deal with some of the issues that will be talked about at the meeting in London.

Q: Does he have a message for the folks meeting in London?

MS. MYERS: I think he will sort of outline his international economic philosophy and how he thinks the plan will affect it.

Q: What members of Congress are here now? Are they meeting with the President?

MS. MYERS: They are -- it is Senator Simon, Senator DeConcini, Senator Bryan, Rep. Stenholm, Payne and Joseph Kennedy .

Q: And what's the topic?

MS. MYERS: The economic plan, particularly deficit reduction.

Q: Why this group?

MS. MYERS: They asked for the meeting.

Q: Are they coming pressing one particular --

MS. MYERS: They're concerned and committed to deficit reduction. They want to talk to the President about that. I can't talk about the specific details of the meeting.

Q: What phase of it -- spending cuts, tax increases?

MS. MYERS: Well, they're in the meeting right now. I can't comment on what they talked about. Q: But the agenda was to press for more spending cuts? MS. MYERS: The agenda was to talk about the economic

plan, particularly deficit reduction. They just want to talk to him about that. I can't say specifically what because they're in there right now discussing those things.

Q: Deficit reduction including new taxes and new spending cuts, or were they emphasizing more -- they were coming to suggest spending cuts?

MS. MYERS: I can't talk about what they're talking about because they're talking about it now.

Q: Right, but I'm asking, the reason they were able to see the President.

MS. MYERS: They came in to see him. He meets with members of Congress regularly. As you know, he's probably met with more than 300 me ...
