Quote of the day: Murkowski on Speaker Boehner’s decision to allow for vote

“This should not be about someone’s speakership. This should not be about the next election. This should be about, really, the future of our country. It ought not be about the politics of the game or whether or not someone keeps their leadership. I want to support John Boehner in any way that I can, but we need to be pragmatic. This is not going to be a Republican solution or a Democrat solution. This is going to be a solution that is good for the country.”

Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s response to a question on NBC’s Today Show.
