-- Trent D. Duffy, a deputy White House spokesman

And when the American people finally realize they’ve been totally hoodwinked by an administration that continues to go further and further into debt by spending money it doesn’t have yet expects the American people to forfeit their homes if they get in over their heads, the Dems won’t even be able to say, “We opposed this bill. We fought tooth and nail for the American people,” because instead, the bankruptcy bill will go down as “another bipartisan accomplishment.”
