In a meeting Friday with The Philadelphia Inquirer's editorial board, the Republican governor said it was "irresponsible of both sides to have allowed this to get where it's gotten.''

Asked what he would do if he was a U.S. senator right now, he said, ``If I was in the Senate right now, I'd kill myself.''

He says both President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner "saw this train coming for a long time'' but did nothing to stop it.
