“What I’m concerned about — it’s not that I don’t trust them (the Obama administration) -- is they figure, ‘Let’s get this thing the hell out of the way, and if we gotta suffer from our base, let’s do it now,’” said New Jersey Democratic Rep. Bill Pascrell
, a member of both the Budget and Ways and Means committees.
