Statement on Passage of the ``Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001''

May 25, 2001

    As a result of this landmark tax relief agreement, the American 
taxpayers will have more money in their pockets to save and invest, and 
the economy will receive a much-needed shot in the arm. I commend the 
Members of the House and Senate, Republican and Democrat alike, who made 
this happen. Tax relief is a centerpiece of our American agenda, and I 
look forward to signing it into law.

The President's Radio Address

May 26, 2001

    Good morning. Most Americans are enjoying a 3-day weekend this 
Saturday, and I hope you are enjoying yours. I also hope you'll find the 
time to share in our Nation's observance of Memorial Day, when we pause 
to reflect on the cost of the free lives we live today.
    I will be marking the day with military veterans gathering at the 
White House, who knew and remember the people who never came back from 
our Nation's wars. I will then go to Arlington National Cemetery to lay 
a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns. It will be a high honor, and I 
will be there on behalf of all the people of the United States. Later 
that day I will join with veterans in Arizona for a commemoration and 
national moment of remembrance.
    Most of us know war veterans. I had the privilege of being raised by 
one. Usually, they are reticent about their experiences. It is often 
difficult for them to think back on those names and faces, on the ones 
who never lived to be called veterans. But on Memorial Day, we accept 
our obligation to do just that.

    We will remember the heroism, the hardship, the national gain, and 
personal loss our wars have brought. America has been given so much, but 
of all our assets, resources, and strengths, none have counted for more 
than the courage of young soldiers in the face of battle.

    When war has come, the great decisions were made here at the White 
House. But when the orders went out and were received half a world away, 
victory has always come down to the people flying the planes, manning 
the ships, carrying the gun and the pack. They're the ones who have 
cleared the seas, crossed the rivers, charged the hills, and covered the 
skies. They have defended us. They have died for us. They have never 
disappointed us. We are in their debt more than a lifetime of Memorial 
Days could ever repay.

    With their sacrifice comes a duty that will go on through the 
generations, to honor them in our thoughts, in our words, and in our 
lives. Every Memorial Day we try to grasp the extent of this loss and 
the meaning of this sacrifice. But it always seems more than words can 
convey. In the end, all we can do is be thankful; all we can do is 
remember and always appreciate the price that was paid for our own lives 
and our own freedom.

    Thank you for listening.

Room at the White House for broadcast at 10:06 a.m. on May 26. The

Remarks on Passage of the ``Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001''

May 26, 2001

    Well, thank you all very much for joining me here at the people's 
house on this historic occasion. I asked all of you to join me here to 
be able to publicly thank the Members of the House and the Senate for 
working so diligently to give Americans another important reason to 
celebrate this holiday weekend.
    I first want to thank House Speaker Dennis Hastert and Senate 
Majority Leader Trent Lott for their strong and effective leadership, 
leadership that was instrumental in delivering significant tax relief 
for the American people. I thank the incoming majority leader of the 
Senate, Tom Daschle, for working with us to schedule today's vote 
promptly. I very much appreciate Senator Daschle's willingness to allow 
the will of the majority of the Senate to prevail, even though he, 
himself, did not agree.
    I thank all the members of the conference committee, especially 
Chairman Chuck Grassley and Chairman Bill Thomas, Senator Max Baucus and 
Senator John Breaux, who worked tirelessly to make tax relief a reality. 
I also want to especially thank Don Nickles, Phil Gramm, Olympia Snowe, 
and House Majority Leader Dick Armey and all who helped make tax relief 
possible. And while I'm thanking people, I want to thank all those who 
voted aye, and so do the taxpayers of America.
    Today, for the first time since the landmark tax relief championed 
20 years ago by President Ronald Reagan, and 40 years ago by President 
John F. Kennedy, an American President has the wonderful honor of 
letting the American people know significant tax relief is on the way.
    What is especially significant about the tax relief passed by the
