HuffPost: Finally!

“Yes, to all of those who say all the other things that don’t happen in the bill — I don’t know any piece of legislation I’ve ever voted for that did everything that I thought it should do,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said. “While this bill doesn’t accomplish all that we need to do … it is a good way for us to have a happy start to a new year by taking this first step.”

“I will not have another debate with this Congress over whether or not they should pay the bills they’ve already racked up through the laws that they passed,” Obama said in brief speech from the White House. “Let me repeat. We can’t not pay bills that we’ve already incurred. If Congress refuses to give the United States government the ability to pay these bills on time, the consequences for the entire global economy would be catastrophic, far worse than the impact of a fiscal cliff.”

“The one thing I think hopefully in the new year we’ll focus on is seeing if we can put a package like this together with a little bit less drama, a little less brinksmanship, not scare the heck out of folks quite as much,” Obama said.
