Funny, we've never been so prosperous!
Over the last four years, we have brought new economic growth by investing in our people, expanding our exports, cutting our deficits, creating over 11 million new jobs, a four-year record.
So this time we're really gonna balance that budget!
We here tonight have an historic opportunity. Let this Congress be the Congress that finally balances the budget. In two days, I will propose a detailed plan to balance the budget by 2002.

This balanced budget includes the largest antidrug effort ever: to stop drugs at their source, punish those who push them, and teach our young people that drugs are wrong, drugs are illegal, and drugs will kill them.
We face no imminent threat, but we do have an enemy -- the enemy of our time is inaction.
Big (failed) idea: Education reform.
