Mitch McConnell 10/09/1988: "The Democrats are always crying because they haven't been able to make the deficit an issue. In fact the deficit doesn't work for either side. Because the American people are shrewd enough to know that there's plenty of blame to go around for the deficit mess and as a matter of fact most surveys, I've seen, indicate that the American people think that congress is more responsible for that than the President."
It seems the deficit wasn't so important when Ronald Wilson Reagan was President. Wow Mitch you sure have changed!
