Bush to Hold Economic Conference

The White House opens a two-day economic conference in Washington Wednesday. Such conferences have become a biennial affair for President Bush, and this year, much attention will be focused on the two big issues the administration has set out for the second term: Social Security and tax reform. NPR's Don Gonyea reports.

You're most likely to find NPR's Don Gonyea on the road, in some battleground state looking for voters to sit with him at the local lunch spot, the VFW or union hall, at a campaign rally, or at their kitchen tables to tell him what's on their minds. Through countless such conversations over the course of the year, he gets a ground-level view of American elections. Gonyea is NPR's National Political Correspondent, a position he has held since 2010. His reports can be heard on all NPR News programs and at NPR.org. To hear his sound-rich stories is akin to riding in the passenger seat of his rental car, traveling through Iowa or South Carolina or Michigan or wherever, right along with him.
