Statement from President Clinton on the Passing of Ross Perot

Ross Perot was a unique figure in American business and politics who lived a full and fascinating life.  Although we were opponents in 1992 and 1996, I respected Ross for his support for our veterans, the business he built, and the passion he brought to his politics. He wanted to do something about the big budget deficit and rising national debt, which kept interest rates too high and took too much of middle-class Americans’ income. He was a feisty and effective debater as Al Gore and I can both confirm. We can all be grateful for his enduring patriotism, active citizenship, and devotion to our veterans.  Hillary and I send our thoughts and prayers to Margot, their children, and grandchildren.
