The Daily Quote
“President Barack Obama threatened Monday to veto any bill that cuts Medicare benefits without increasing taxes on corporations or the wealthy, setting his sharpest boundaries yet in negotiations over reducing the federal deficit… Sen. Pat Toomey (R., Pa.), a member of the deficit panel, said the president's proposals should be considered ‘among many others.’”
