The Daily Quote

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ): “I’m very much in favor of [going to conference], and I think we ought to do it right away… And I think for us to after four years of complaining about Harry Reid’s failure to bring up a budget and then we do one and block conference is something that’s incomprehensible.”

Sen. John Boozman (R-AR): “I think we need to go to conference… I would very much like to see a conference.”
