President Clinton vetoed Congress' budget reconciliation bill, which

balanced the budget over the next seven years. He promised to veto

any other proposals that underfund programs such as Medicare and

education. He used the pen that President Johnson used to sign the

legislation that created Medicare in 1965. After the veto, he

criticized various aspects of the proposal, including its education,

environment and welfare provisions. The president also emphasized

his commitment to balance the budget in seven years and announced

that he would present a plan to Congress which would also balance the

budget in seven years.

The president sat at his desk in the Oval Office and was surrounded

by a group of invited citizens. close
