President's Remarks to the Travel Pool

3:11 P.M. CDT

Q How much did she save, Mr. President?

THE PRESIDENT: Seventeen dollars. Her total cost is $1.90.

Q Not bad.

THE PRESIDENT: So, like, if you add $17 to $1.90 -- (laughter.) Here, Wanda, come over here, give us your card.

One of the reasons we're here is we want people to understand the benefits of this card, so more people use it.

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.)
