“With the rough times we’ve had, I understand having to look at a budget and make cuts,” he said. “It’s about getting the agenda done and putting America back in order again.”

“If today I had to make the decision, ‘OK, you can have your house done or you can, you know, are they going to cut it and put it towards a wall,’ I think it’s important that the wall is built,” she said. “For the greater good, you have to make sacrifices.”
