REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENTThis little vignette is an excellent promotion for the new prescription drug plan, no? We're thinking that as a slogan, they might go with something like, "The new Medicare card: You're not dead. . . yet."
TO THE TRAVEL POOL
MRS. BLACKMORE: This is my Medicare card.
THE PRESIDENT: Yes, brand new. When did you get it?
MRS. BLACKMORE: I got this Saturday. And this is the second time I've used it.
THE PRESIDENT: What's that going to do for you?
MRS. BLACKMORE: Keep my blood flowing.
THE PRESIDENT: Keep your blood flowing. (Laughter.)
