The Daily Quote

 "Left unchecked, our fiscal situation will only go from bad to worse. Bold steps are needed, not tentative steps that do little to address the underlying problems we face.  Solutions must be aggressive, comprehensive and bipartisan, so that American taxpayers understand that this is a serious situation that requires serious action.  There are no easy fixes here, so while I do not agree with all parts of the [Fiscal Commission] Co-Chairmen’s final proposal, I will support it because it represents a step forward that we urgently need.”
