WASHINGTON — President Reagan announced to business leaders today that he will spend this summer and fall traveling around the country to urge Americans to stop "deficit spenders in Congress from wrecking America's economic future."
In remarks to the National Assn. of Manufacturers, Reagan also said he will ask leaders of the Western industrialized nations at the economic summit in Venice next month "to buy more goods" from America and from throughout the world to expand global prosperity.

He said he will tell the heads of state at the Venice summit that "I will spend this summer and fall going to cities and towns all over America. I will be asking the American people to hel1881175411from wrecking America's economic future. This is my pledge. This is my promise. It's a fight I look forward to."
