One thing clear about President Barack Obama’s much-anticipated speech on reducing the long-term deficit is that the White House believes it will be a vision to behold.
“The president will lay out a vision and that vision will be clear,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said. But he refused to provide details and said to stay tuned.
Will there be numbers? Is it a plan? White House correspondents asked seeking clarity.
“I think that you can describe a vision as a plan,” Carney said. “I will not then go from there to get into specifics about what that vision-slash-plan-slash-concept will include.”
Obama will meet with congressional leaders to lay out his vision before delivering the speech tomorrow.
