The Daily Quote
“This kind of gamesmanship is never helpful. Everybody who understands what the nature of the debt limit is, understands that it has to go up and that, hopefully, the majority of people in Congress will recognize that and vote for it. I do understand that some people ran for office saying they would not. Well, that was a little misguided.”
