The Daily Quote

“Congressional Republicans seem perfectly serene about allowing the sequester to take effect in a few weeks, so eager to prove they are budget cutters that they are willing to ignore the coming economic storm. ‘I think sequester’s going to happen,’ said Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma. ‘I think people want it to happen.’”
