CNBC Nov. 14, 2011 -- Warren Buffett on reducing the deficit http://goo.gl/5ub5O
spending is going to have to come down. we are a very, very, very rich family. we have $120,000 of gdp per household in this country. it's fabulous. it's six times when i was born. even a rich family can promise too much. in the end, you deal with finite resources. and it's easy to promise. and can you overpromise. and we overpromised. that's why i feel terrible, frankly, for people that will find promises modified and/or broken.
