"I think this compromise actually has the opportunity to have something meaningful come out of it. I think that’s a good thing, whether that’s a balanced budget amendment or something the super committee comes up with. We’re moving in the right direction. Not fast enough, but we are moving in the right direction."
"I really don’t think anyone came out ahead. There’s plenty of things we wanted that we didn’t get. For instance, Medicare reform is completely off the table. There’s lots of things the Democrats wanted, obviously mainly tax increases and they didn’t get those. So, I think nobody got their whole list of things. Everybody was able to protect a few things and give a little on some others."
