Our budgets.

I do not believe any party has a monopoly on good ideas.

I have shown myself willing to go more than halfway in these conversations.

If reasonable republicans want to talk about these things again, i am ready to head up to the hill and trial.

I will even spring for dinner.

I'm not going to do it i'm not going to do it until the more extreme parts of the republican party stop forcing john boehner to issue threats about our economy.

We cannot make extortion routine.

Democracy does not function this way.

This is not just for me.

This is for my successors in office, whatever party they are
