***************************************Stephanopoulos: good morning –
the fiscal cliff has been solved but the
government is out of money
Stephanopoulos: you won't raise the debt limit
without fake spending cuts but Obama refuses
to negotiate over the credit of the nation
McConnell: let's sit down now or
we will kill this country
Stephanopoulos: I see
McConnell: Obama is a really big spender
and we're becoming like Greece without
the really really old stuff
Stephanopoulos: well we have the Senate
Stephanopoulos: are you prepared to
put the U.S. in default?
McConnell: we won't have to wreck America
if Obama doesn whatever we say he should do
Stephanopoulos: you want to reform
the entire U.S. Government in two weeks?
Stephanopoulos: Obama wants to negotiate
over new highter taxes
McConnell: oh no absolutely not
Stephanopoulos: Congress already
cut $1.5 trillion in spending
McConnell: that's not enough
Stephanopoulos: are you saying you
demand big spending cuts out of concern
for the debt but you refuse to discuss any new taxes?
McConnell: yes that's over and behind us –
now we need to slash spending
Stephanopoulos: I see
McConnell: we have a spending addiction
and need an intervention
Stephanopoulos: Senator Cornyn says we must
shut down America or become like Greece
Italy and Spain
McConnell: Obama is tying shove olive oil
down our throats!
McConnell: we must cut spending and then
cut spending and after that cut some spending
Stephanopoulos: would you default on
America's debts just to get what you want?
McConnell: we're spending too much and
so we must reduce spending and
Democrats won't cut spending
Stephanopoulos: what spending would you cut?
McConnell: aid for old people!
McConnell: this is perfect time to do it since
Obama is President we can blame him for cutting Social Secuity
Stephanopoulos: you used to love Chuck Hagel
McConnell: the next Secretary of Defense
must promise to start a war with Iran
Stephanopoulos: are you worried that he doesn't
support Israel and maybe the U.S.?
McConnell: he's outspoken but I am
concerned that he might not start a couple of wars
Stephanopoulos: Could you support more
background checks for gun buyers?
McConnell: the national debt became very
important when Obama was sworn in!
Stephanopoulos: what else
McConnell: cut spending!
Stephanopoulos: Heidi you said Obama needs
to reach out to Republicans more
Heitkamp: Obama needs to stop talking
in ultimatums and negotiate on Republican terms
Castro: hey guess what Republicans!
Obama won the election!
Cotton: we need to cut spending now
that a Democrat is the President
Stephanopoulos: what about Chuck Hagel?
Cotton: he was against the surge in Iraq
and hates Israel and loves terrorists!
Heitkamp: let's give Chuck Hegel a chance
to defend himself before we call him an anti-semite
Stephanopoulos: what about gun control?
Castro: the debt is very important but
immigration is more important
Castro: also the debt ceiling is stupid
Heitkamp: forget gun control – we need to
look at the dangerously mentally ill
Castro: I can see those in Congress
Stephanopoulos: people despise Congress
Cotton: the Army works with teamwork
and character unlike the idiots on Capitol Hill
Stephanopoulos: well could luck there dude
Cotton: thanks George
