March 8, 2009: Orszag to GOP: ‘There they go again’ (Politico)

  • House Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio, appearing after Orszag on "Face the Nation," replied: "American families are tightening their belt, but they don't see government tightening its belt. And I think we can get through this year and lead by example, and show the American people that the government can go on a diet as well. … Their budget spends too much, it taxes too much and it borrows too much from our kids and grandkids."
