President Bush in public: “Now, that’s why I went to the Congress during the State of the Union and said, we’ve got a problem. I spent a lot of time describing the problem, but I also said, I’m willing to listen to any solution. I’m willing to say, you’ve got an idea, bring it — bring it forward.”

President Bush in private: “White House officials are privately telling Republicans that Bush is opposed to the idea [of government-subsidized personal savings accounts outside the existing system] but does not want to say so because it would appear he is not willing to compromise.”
