"I am proud to stand with President Obama and Senator Reid as they insist on a balanced approach to deficit reduction. Only by taking such an approach, one that includes increased revenues and adjustments to mandatory programs, can we achieve a true solution to our long-term deficit challenges. No one doubts that a reasonable compromise is possible to achieve significant deficit reduction. We need only put politics aside, and do what is in the best interest of the American people."
