    TRANSCRIPT SEQ 2: NIXON: "Whatever some of you may think, a great majority of American people and a majority of union members want to stop the rise in the cost of living. And that's what we're going to do. In order to stop the rise in the cost of living, we want the participation of business, we want the participation of labour, we want the participation of consumers and all other areas of society. We hope we get it. But whether we get that participation or not, it is my obligation as President of the Untied States to make this programme of stopping the rise in the cost of living succeed. And to the extent that my power allows it, I shall do exactly that. I will conclude as I began. Yes, we do have differences, but regardless of what those differences are, because I know you are for America, you can be sure everyone of you will always have a friend in the White House."
