Ordinary folks, they do their jobs. They meet deadlines. They sit down and discuss things and then things happen. If there are disagreements they sort through the disagreements. The notion that our elected leadership can’t do the same thing is mind boggling to them. It needs to stop. So, I’m modestly optimistic that a agreement can be achieved. Nobody’s going to a hundred percent of what they want, but let’s make sure that middle class families and the American economy and in fact the world economy aren’t adversely impacted because people can’t do their jobs.
Those of us who have been to the hearings and briefings and markups hear time and time again from our colleagues that `this costs too much money and we have to make cuts.’ Well our evil-doing, American citizen hating administration requested a lot more money than we provided. They requested for worldwide security $440 million more than you guys wanted to provide. A quarter of a billion dollars in security upgrades that you refused to make in this Committee. And then you have the audacity to come here and say ‘why wasn’t the protection of these people provided for?’ And the answer is because you damn didn’t provide it!
