Exchange With Reporters Prior to a Meeting With the Economic Policy 
February 13, 1993

    Q. What's on the agenda, Mr. President?
    The President. We're working on the budget. You know what we're 
doing. [Laughter]
    Q. Still?

    Q. Mr. President, have you heard anything from the lawmakers that 
would cause you to change your mind on any policies that you intend to 
    The Vice President. That's kind of a broad question anyway. 
    The President. I've gotten a lot of good advice from them, a lot of 
good ideas. I've basically just been asking them for their ideas, not 
only in the meetings here but in telephone calls. And I've gotten some 
good suggestions, some of which we've been able to incorporate.
    Q. How long do you think you're going to have to work?
    The President. I'm going to work a while today and a while tomorrow 
and a while----
    Q. You playing golf today?
    The President. It doesn't look like it. It's warmer today, though, 
isn't it?
    Q. A little wet.
    The President. I knew as soon as I decided not to play golf it would 
warm up.
