Text of Barbara Bush's taped message for the Republican Party of Florida:
Hello, this is Barbara Bush.
I'm calling to tell you about my son George W.'s plan to protect Social Security. I know I have a mother's bias, but I know my son and his integrity.
When he proposes prescription drug coverage for seniors, modernizing Medicare, saving Social Security and preserving its benefits for current retirees with no reductions, no changes, he means it.
It makes me angry when the politicians, with no plan or vision of their own, try to scare seniors about these programs that are so important to their lives. It is wrong. Don't buy it.
George W's plan will make sure you get everything you have earned and protects you against the rising costs of health care and prescription drugs. Do me a favor. Call 800-378-7338 and express your support for George's plan to protect seniors.
Thank you. Bye-bye.
