9:30 meeting with Repub. Leadership—A general discussion of legislative strategy. Heavy emphasis on “Aid to the Contras.” Bob Michel fears Tip is going to try & put all the appropriation bills in one big costly package & since I dont have line item veto they figure on getting away with budget busting spending. Later in the morning I went over to the E.O.B. & addressed an enthusiastic group of supporters of Tax Reform. About a dozen or more Sens. D. & R. were on the platform with me.
Had lunch in the Cabinet room with the state leaders of “Project ’88.” This was formed a few yrs. ago by Max Hugel. It’s purpose is to get pub. support for all our program. It was a good & fun time with them. Each one has contributed $10,000 to keep the program going.
Then Jackie & Scott Pflug came by. She is the young lady in the hi-jacking in Malta who was shot in the head & thrown down the plane steps. I had phoned her & got our pvt. initiative group to get help for her. She has one operation to go—it’s to put a plate in her skull where there is presently a hole. She’s an attractive perky young gal with a nice husband.
A session in the Family Theatre to prepare for tomorrow nights press conference. Then to the Dr’s. office for some of the exam (post operative). Blood pressure 120 over 76, an electrocardiogram etc. Then home & Mommie—a quiet evening.
