Story from February 2011: Former Republican Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson, one of the men tasked with proposing a path to get America's fiscal house in order, said he's still waiting for lawmakers to take on the debt charge.

"I'm waiting for the politician to get up and say, there's only one way to do this, you dig into the big four, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and defense," Simpson said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union. "Anybody giving you anything different than that, you want to walk out the door, stick your finger down your throat, and give them the green weenie." February 6th, 2011 --
