Found in a video clip at Powerline:
" The larger the national debt, the wealthier we are as a nation."
Rep. Pete Stark D-CA
I suspect that Mr. Stark has been in the house (since 1973) so long that when he says "we" he means the congress, not the country or the population. For him, a large national debt is equivalent to a high limit on the credit card, which he doesn't have to pay off.
