WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush Saturday said he has a "straightforward" approach to the presidency and attacked John Kerry's record on taxes, education and other domestic issues.

He spoke in his radio address to the nation.

Highlighting his accomplishments, Bush said that over the last three years America's economy "has grown at the fastest rate of any major industrialized nation," and his administration has added more than 1.9 million new jobs in the last 13 months.

To help America's economy growing, Bush said he pledged to reduce taxes, and he intends to keep taxes low. (Special Report: America Votes 2004)

On health care, Bush said his administration helped to strengthen and modernize Medicare, and in 2006, all seniors will be able to get prescription drug coverage.

Bush said Kerry voted against Medicare bill, and his health care proposal would place eight out of 10 people on a government program.

Bush called himself a "compassionate conservative" who stands for marriage. "I have worked to help all Americans build a future of dignity and independence. And that is how I will continue to lead this nation for four more years."
