Majority Leader Culpepper (Texas) wanted to know why he had no plans for off-shore drilling and
building more oil refineries to lessen our need for foreign oil. The president responded that his
commitment to the Environmental Responsibility Act would expand greatly our development of solar and
wind power in place of excessive reliance on oil. Moreover, his forthcoming budget would demonstrate
his strong commitment. Other questions followed.
After the president’s address, the reporter, committee chairmen, and vice president picked up their
Story Line folders. The legislators met with their standing committees and began working on bills
already pre-filed and assigned to their respective committees. The president and his staff started working
on the budget and decided which staff members would lobby for the president’s specific programs. The
Presidential Press Secretary was assigned the task of cultivating the reporter to acquire favorable
coverage for both the president’s program and his proposed budget.
At the start of the second session, the reporter delivered a summary of the first session which she
continued to perform at the beginning of each ensuing one. Her report included the GOP charges of the
President’s failure to cope with critical national problems.
The reporter plays a key role. She is present at press conferences, constantly gathers information,
both factual and bogus, which she and office-holders may use to aid and/or stymie both colleagues and
opponents. She is also in a position to advance any of her own hidden agendas. Following the reporter’s
summary, the President sent his budget to the House Budget Committee. He followed with a press
conference where he attempted to “spin” his budget as meeting both essential needs and necessary new
programs while still achieving a balanced budget without raising taxes.
Reporter Estorian challenged the President’s willingness to balance the budget through stringent
cuts in military spending and interrogated him on why he was at odds with his Democratic congressional
leaders on defense cuts. President Millworth replied that once the leaders met with the Defense Secretary
they would alter their position. A Democrat, Representative Yarmolinski, challenged the president to act
on job losses due to overseas outsourcing. President Millworth responded that trade globalization would
