First thing to cut is Obama's salary, then all his executive perks, put the Secret Service back to work chasing counterfeiters, sell off both Air Force 1 jets, sell off the White House, and make him rent a place in Arlington Heights like everyone else. And make him get his own coffee and cereal in the morning.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell says that "absolutely the tax issue is behind us" as a result of the "fiscal cliff" deal and that it's now time to focus solely on confronting what he calls "our spending addiction."

He says it shouldn't require a crisis for President Barack Obama and the Democratic majority in the Senate to address federal spending and the future of big entitlement programs...
