MCAULIFFE: “At the end of the day Tim, I would rather not have to leave my family and travel around the country to ask people for money. There are a lot of other things I would like to be doing with my time. There’s too much money in the system. Let’s get rid of it. I’m all for it, I support it, let’s pass it, and let’s move on.” (NBC’s “Meet The Press,” 2/4/01)
