WATCH: Arizona Rep. David Schweikert On Fox Business News: "We're Devastatingly Broke"

Arizona Rep. David Schweikert (R-CD5) appeared on Fox Business News this afternoon.  In a joint interview with California Democrat Loretta Sanchez, Schweikert defended Rep. Paul Ryan's plans for cutting spending, saying: 
"We're devastatingly broke, and the entitlements are going to drive us into the ground.  So if you really care about that college student and that student having an economic future, we have to do the tough stuff now, or it comes crashing down around us."
Of course, the hosts had to ask if Sanchez and Schweikert were going to sit together tomorrow for the State of the Union address.  Sanchez took a flirty approach, while Schweikert noted that the Arizona delegation (except those apparently, who like Sen. McCain, already have dates) is probably going to sit together.
