“You can't cut spending your way out of this
hole. You can't grow your way out of this hole and you can't tax your way out
of this hole "Put that in your pipe and smoke it," we tell these
people.This is madness. If you want to be a purest, go somewhere on a
mountain top and praise the east or something, but if you want to be in
politics, you learn to compromise and you learn to compromise an issue without
compromising yourself. Show me a guy who won't compromise and I'll show you a
guy with rock for brains."
