I'm disappointed, really, that the House is going off on all of its tangents once again, ... The capital gains cut, apparently, is alive and well over there, and an array of other things that are just handouts to those who probably don't need it.

Give me a tax cut that isn't popular, ... I mean, the Republicans have built their whole reason for being around this notion that somehow no one should have to pay any taxes.
Many of us of have said from the beginning that we have not seen any intelligence information that would give us any conclusive evidence to suggest the threat was imminent, ... I think this public report now bears that conclusion out.
They don't want a 1.6 trillion dollar tax cut. Now they want a 3.2 trillion dollar tax cut. I don't know why they don't just give the entire federal budget away,
killing the small independent trucker and we've got to find ways to give them some relief.
We hope that they will also announce that they will release all of the information that the 911 commission has requested, ... Certainly having the testimony is good, but having all of the information would be even better.

I hate to say I told you so, but we told you so,

This may be the first budget in history that wasn't just dead on arrival -- it was dead before arrival.
This is an issue that's very important to South Dakotans, ... We hope we can find a balanced bill.
Republicans in the House can't help themselves but to load up a bill. They just can't seem to bring themselves to do the right thing and pass a simple extension of unemployment benefits,
The only reason I would hold out the option is that if the House does bring witnesses, I would certainly support the White House bringing witnesses as well,
Why mess with success If the language worked in the House, you would think it would work here in the Senate as well,
We have not been briefed, and we have not been given any new intelligence information,
to clarify this discrepancy of no financial interest.
I can't imagine that we would pass any bill that would tolerate slipping back into a level of intolerance that would be acceptable in today's society,
