Democratic senator Mary Landrieu said on the Senate floor that Washington's spending problem exists only on Fox News:

"I am not going to keep cutting the discretionary budget, which by the way is not out of control, despite what you hear on Fox News," said Landrieu.

The Louisiana senator did say that entitlement spending is a major problem. "It is mandatory spending that is rising rapidly, because the greatest generation that gave us the greatest nation the world has ever heard is dying and they need hospice care, they need Social Security, and they need hospitals."
