Team Clinton
The Starting Line-Up of the Pro-Clinton
Press Corps

August 1, 1996

Bob FrankenBob Franken
CNN Capitol Hill Reporter

"The House Republican budget bloodletting will infuriate lots of people. Besides the Medicare cuts, Medicaid, the government health plan for the poor, loses $184 billion."
-- Inside Politics, May 9, 1995.

"By the end of the week, appropriations subcommittees had taken the first steps in cutting or eliminating more than $17 billion in programs, many for the children and poor. They include: housing assistance, clean water projects, summer youth programs, funding for drug free schools, education programs, virtually the entire National Service Corps, and, of course, the school lunch program. President Clinton decried the cuts as an assault on children."
-- Inside Politics, February 24, 1995.

"Democrats are well aware that Republicans face a furious assault from angry senior citizens, that they're trying to distract from the inevitability of Medicare cuts -- stalling."
-- Inside Politics, May 2, 1995.

"Given the polls and your negatives and given the identification of your House of Representatives, by many voters, as extremist and radical. Do you worry that that's going to hurt the Bob Dole candidacy?"

"Do you worry that in fact the voters are also going to perceive you, as many do now as, for instance, enemies of the environment, champions of the big guys versus the small guys?"

"But you also were the party last year where one of your leaders, Tom DeLay, specifically described the Environmental Protection Agency in its environmental efforts as a 'Gestapo government?'"
-- Questions to Newt Gingrich, April 21, 1996 Late Edition.
