The chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Hoyer, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Caucus, and Rep. Fazio addressed reporters in response to President Bush’s speech on education delivered earlier in the day. The three men assailed the lack of importance placed on education and other domestic issues by the Bush administration, and called for increased attention and funding for education programs, which are at a crisis level in terms of funding and effectiveness. Rep. Hoyer said Head Start, the preschool program that prepares children for school, was continually underfunded, and noted the difference between President Bush’s speeches and President Bush’s actions. The first few minutes of the news conference were cut off due to technical problems. Democratic national chairman Ron Brown answered questions from reporters on the chances of the Democrats in 1992 following the opening statements. close
