Don't Let Them Run From Their Words

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), May 17, 2011: "You want to make sure that the bondholder has confidence that the government's going to be able to pay them.... That's what I'm hearing from most people, which is if a bondholder misses a payment for a day or two or three or four what is more important that you're putting the government in a materially better position to be able to pay their bonds later on."

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), June 24, 2011 on administration warnings of "catastrophic consequences" of not raising debt limit: "I don't believe them, it's not true."

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), July 18, 2011: "I am a little bit cynical about the scare mongering and putting America's back up against this Aug. 2 deadline just to get an increase in the American credit card."

TPM is keeping the list current
