Quotes

"i think every individual should look online as to what their congressman is invested in - whether it's oil companies, whether it's green energy companies - and ascertain whether that affects the way they're voting" Schweizer said
Schweizer added, "in this particular case the billionaire investor is invested in several hedge funds that would benefit from the very program that he's pushing, which is a series of national initiatives as it relates to climate change."
T o that Peter Schweizer says: "at the end of the day the defense budget should be about protecting our national security and serving the interest of our fighting men and women. it shouldn't be about providing money to politically connected corporations in some congressman's district."
