After staff & N.S.C. meetings—into a meeting with the Sens. & Rep’s. who had joined with me to draw up a “down payment” on the deficit. A triad of domestic spending cuts, defense cuts & tax revenues added by way of loophole closings—no hike in rates. The Sen. has passed it reasonably close to what we agreed to. The House version is reasonably close on tax revenues but more than doubles the Defense cuts & makes very little reduction on domestic spending. I told them to fight to the death. I’ll veto the tax cut if it comes to me unaccompanied by spending cuts. A moving affair in the East Room, a ceremony opening our Missing Childrens Center. Many present have children missing. After I spoke Mr. Walsh father of Adam the little boy whose kidnap & murder were shown in a dramatization on NBC. A meeting with Cap who presented me with an unusual gift on behalf of the 101st Airborne. In the Rose Garden I congratulated the N.B.A. champs—the Celtics who defeated the Lakers last night. Over to the Family Theatre for a pre-news conference briefing for tomorrow nights press conference. End of Day—Maureen here for dinner—gave me a Fathers Day gift early.
