It was just, I think, a dollar or two that I got when I started as a songwriter with BMI, and I had some songs there that I had through the company, and in the mail I got this big old check for, like, a dollar and a half or something. Somebody had recorded one of my songs.
President Obama has offered a plan with 4 trillion dollars in debt reduction over a decade, with two and a half dollars of spending reductions for every one dollar of revenue increases, and tight controls on future spending.

William J. Clinton
Treat each federal dollar as if it was hard earned; it was - by a taxpayer.
I, Joan Crawford, I believe in the dollar. Everything I earn, I spend.

Henry A. Wallace

'Obama and Biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars.' Guess what? Yes, we do in one regard: We want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn't have to bear the burden of all that money going to the super-wealthy. That's not a tax raise. That's called fairness where I come from.
If you want to know how rich you really are, find out what would be left of you tomorrow if you should lose every dollar you own tonight.
William J. H. Boetcker
