Quayle, Ben (R-CD3): Quayle was interviewed by Fox News' Neil Cavuto this morning (Saturday, 8:15a.m., AZT). Below the video are some quotes pulled by Quayle's office.
On the long-term fiscal situation:
"We need to move our country in the right fiscal direction. We can’t be saying, ok look S&P and Moody’s might downgrade us. We have to make the best decisions to try and make sure that we are tackling our fiscal problems.”
Schweikert, Davide (R-CD5): Rep. Schweikert released an angry statement this (Saturday) afternoon. Here it is:
“While our economy is on the brink of a debt disaster, it is unconscionable that President Obama and the Senate Majority still refuse any plan that will not give the president a blank check.
“The House of Representatives did the heavy lifting and passed a bipartisan plan, yet President Obama’s calls for ‘compromise’ seem to ignore this reality.
“The Reid plan borders on embarrassing. It is full of smoke and mirrors instead of common sense and math. It will have a disastrous impact on our military, does not cut close to the amount it hikes, and advertises $1 trillion in phantom cuts.
“Senator Reid continues to play games and disregard the will of the People’s House. It is clear that President Obama and the Senate Majority just don’t get it.”
Gosar, Paul (R-CD1) : Rep. Gosar released a statement last night (Friday), after passage of the Boehner bill:
“A year ago Congress only talked about tax increases and more failed stimulus plans. Now we are talking about, and voting on, measures that restore fiscal sanity. We are moving our country forward.”
