REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT TO THE POOL
Elm Street Junior High School Nashua, New Hampshire
Q Does it make you angry?
THE PRESIDENT: No, but let me show you something. Look at this. This is what people care about. Here's a child with a preexisting condition. He can't get health insurance. So I went out there, was shaking hands in the crowd, the mother gave me a picture of this child. That's where America is -- with these people --
Q Why do think it's been so hard for you to get your message to --
THE PRESIDENT: I haven't been out here with them.
THE PRESIDENT: You can draw your own conclusion about that, but you heard from a lot of wise people here today.
Q Are you angry, Mr. President? You sounded awfully angry last night.
THE PRESIDENT: I wasn't. I was happy. What I said last night, I was not angry, but I'm determined. That was a deliberate -- I wanted to tell those people how I felt. And I'm very happy being here today. This is America, this is where they are.
Q It sure looks like you started the `96 campaign - --
THE PRESIDENT: It's not about the `96 campaign, this is about what we're going to do in Congress for the American people in 1994. That's what this was about.
THE PRESS: Thank you.
