There is a dramatic difference between the two parties, ... Republicans say, 'Don't grow government, give it back to the taxpayers.'
If they have good jobs, we have to give them some kind of multi-year work permit that validates their presence here,
First thing we're going to do is, we're going to give most of that (surplus) back to the American people, as much as 600 billion,
There's got to be some understanding on their part that if we don't get some additional give in terms of restraining some expenditures and some reform, then we may have to be on our own, producing a budget that the President wouldn't like,
bigger government in Washington (and) less money in the pockets of the taxpayers. I believe we're right on this one.
Most important to those that wonder whether this is real, the appropriated accounts of our government will go up only one half a percent each year, and they will be implemented by enforceable, mandatory caps,
But congressional priorities, senatorial Republican and House Republican priorities will be in these bills also,

No matter what side of Yucca you're on, the truth of the matter is Yucca is ... not on the schedule that even was predicted the last time. It's behind schedule.
We can talk about who was one day late, who was 36 hours late. But the truth is, it was so big. I hope the people don't think one day, two days here or there, would've avoided the devastation.
If it is finished and Republicans in large numbers feel that it was rigged in the sense that you kept on counting until you found a way to win, I think it's going to be very difficult to work with the vice president.
I don't believe that we ought to be horse-trading major American programs. President Clinton has looked at the politics, very much so, and perhaps he's giving Vice President Gore something to run on.
