QUOTE: “When I was in Washington, everyone told us you can’t get Republicans and Democrats to work together. They will never come together to use taxpayer dollars to stabilize the economy. … The leaders said, ‘If this is what’s at stake, we will find a way to get this done.’ And that was Democrats and Republicans. And so one of the worst moments in our country’s history, in modern times economically, was actually one of the most remarkable moments politically. Because our leaders did something they almost never do, which is they came together, they put the country before their own political prospects, and it worked.”
