President Clinton announced the current status of a partial government shutdown. He vetoed the continuing resolution offered by Congress because it introduced sharp hikes in Medicare premiums and cuts in education and the environment. The president expressed a strong commitment to balancing the budget by reviewing his administration’s record and explaining his budget proposal. He faulted Republicans for sending him a budget he simply could not sign. The president added that he would do his best to minimize the hardships caused to average citizens by the loss of government services during the shutdown.
