>> well, we have worked all year to reduce our budget deficit and to cut spending.
>> we have got to reduce the size and role of government. we've got to cut spending.
>> we'll continue to work on finding smarter ways to cut spending.
>> spend less. bye.
>> how about that for an exit. they're obsessed with spending cuts. they say spend less, grow the economy. but in the last quarter of 2012 , government spending , yes, government spending fell 6.6%. defense spending was down more than 22 pnt. and how did that affect the economy? last quarter, the gdp, which measures the economy, fell 0.1%. and 38,000 more people filed jobless claims last week than the week before. this is seersz. the economy is moouing in the right direction. but we can be the take our eye off the ball. we can't just cut, cut, cut. republicans ignore the real impact cuts have on the economy. do they think we wouldn't point it out? nice try, but cut it out because we gotchya.
