Major Garrett To Obama: "You Yourself" Voted Against The Debt Ceiling
MAJOR GARRETT, CBS NEWS: As you well know, sir, finding votes for the debt ceiling can sometimes be complicated. You yourself as a member of the Senate voted against a debt ceiling increase. And in previous aspects of American history: President Reagan in 1985, President George Herbert Walker Bush in 1990, President Clinton in 1997, all signed deficit reduction deals that were contingent upon or in the context of in raising the debt ceiling. You yourself four times have done that; three times those were related to deficit reduction or budget maneuvers.
