Excerpts:
- On Republicans saying the price of American Jobs Plan is too high: "I am prepared to go to budget reconciliation. I'm somebody who thinks that the filibuster should not be to give Republicans a veto on things that this country needs."

- On the national debt: "Why is it that Republicans talk about the deficit only when Democrats are talking about let's invest in child care and cancelling study loans and making sure that we have care for the elderly? Either you have a matter of principle that you think it's always a problem, or you don't. My view right now is we are coming out of a really serious economic hole. It's good, frankly, for us to be spending, to be putting money into people's pockets, and to be building infrastructure."
