The Daily Quote

“Republicans have to also understand you cannot balance the budget just with cuts.  The American people, whether they vote Republican or Democrat, in the end they don't want their programs cut back, particularly the big ones--Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, those kinds of things. You have to have some combination of cuts in expenses and some revenue enhancements.  You can call those taxes, whatever you want.”

    -         Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I-NY),  NBC’s Meet the Press, 5/1/11
