Carter Campaign Final Phase

Speaking from his home in Plains, Jimmy Carter launched the final phase of his presidential campaign. On this day, Carter announced that balancing the budget was his top priority, even ahead of his welfare reform and national health insurance packages. He promised that “there will be no new programs implemented under my administration unless we can be sure that the cost of those programs is compatible with my goal of having a balanced budget before the end of my term.”
