The Daily Quote

“While much of official Washington on Saturday somberly faced the likelihood of a government shutdown, the most conservative members of the House sported a different expression. They were smiling. ‘We’re very excited,’ said Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). ‘It’s exactly what we wanted, and we got it.’ On Saturday, conservatives rallied House Republicans around a plan to fund the government but delay the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature health-care law, for a year. It was rejected within hours by Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), making it unlikely that Congress has the time to find common ground before a midnight Monday deadline… ‘It’s wonderful,’ said Rep. John Abney Culberson (R-Tex.), clapping his hands to emphasize the point. ‘We’re 100 percent united!’”
