On Taxes

"When a man's got money in his pocket, he begins to appreciate peace." -- A Fistfull of Dollars (1964)

On Medicare

"Well, I've got Medicare. Go ahead and shoot your best shot!" -- Space Cowboys (2000)

On Mitt Romney

"Tell me, isn't the sheriff supposed to be courageous, loyal and, above all, honest? … I think you people need a new sheriff." -- For a Few Dollars More (1965).
