First, the President:
But there is no doubt that we’ve been living beyond our means and we’re going to have to make some adjustments.

UPS and FedEx are doing just fine . . . . it’s the Post Office that’s always having problems.
Now, the Speaker of the House:
The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.
