The Daily Quote

"The deficit, in my opinion, is probably the single most important issue we face…. So far we have heard folks trying to outdo each other in deficit reduction. I welcome that competition. Especially if it's backed up with votes because it's easy to talk tough on this. It's harder to deliver….[T]hat means for all the folks who want to talk tough and not vote tough, that's not good enough. It means that for all the folks who want to do this next year or next decade or leave it to their successor, that's not good enough…. So this is a challenge for everybody in both parties. Nobody's hands are clean, but let's have a new day, a new beginning. I think we can do this and [the health care reform bill] is a great place to start. If you don't think the bill reduces the deficit enough, vote for more savings. If you want to reform Medicare more, vote for it. Don't just talk a good game.”
