Bob Corker to American Economy: "Chill Out"

Pop Quiz for Senator Bob Corker (R-TN):

Which option will keep us from defaulting?

A. Compromise on a balanced package that includes revenues and spending cuts, and increase the debt limit


B. Chill out

Sen. Corker’s Response: B

Wrong Answer. Instead of telling the American people to “chill out and not worry so much,” it’s time for Republicans to stop risking our economic security and work with Democrats to take a long-term, balanced approach to pay our nation’s bills and reduce the deficit so we can give businesses and the markets the certainty they need.
