The Daily Quote

"It [Republican’s Budget Proposal] doesn't address in any serious or courageous way the issue of the near and medium-term deficit…I think the biggest problem is revenues. It is simply unrealistic to say that raising revenue isn't part of the solution. It's a measure of how far off the deep end Republicans have gone with this religious catechism about taxes."

- David Stockman, President Ronald Reagan’s Former Director of Office of Management and Budget, 4/11/11
