Washington, America (USA).
L/S and M/S the Capitol lit up at night. Interior shots of President Johnson and others. Various shots as he speaks, also shots of the assembled crowd. He says "I recommend to the congress a surcharge of 6% on both corporate and individual income tax to last for two years or for as long as the unusual expenditure associated with our efforts in Vietnam continue. We will stand firm in Vietnam. Let us remember that we have been tested before and America has never been found wanting. So with your understanding I would hope for confidence and your support. We are going to persist and we are going to succeed". People applaud and camera zooms out.
