Senator John C. Danforth

“I have never seen more senators express discontent with their jobs. … I 
think the major cause is that, deep down in our hearts, we have been 
accomplices to doing something terrible and unforgivable to this wonderful 
country. Deep down in our hearts, we know that we have bankrupted America and 
that we have given our children a legacy of bankruptcy. … We have defrauded 
our country to get ourselves elected.”
– John C. Danforth

US Senator (MO-R)
