Quotes

"We're going to have to get to the problems in the Affordable Care Act because they're huge. We still don't know who's signed up. The guesses we all get is that they are not meeting their targets and premiums are going to be much more expensive. The other shoe that is going to drop is the people who have received subsidies and don't qualify for them. Their refund is going to be attached and you're going to have a lot of difficulties, not to mention all of the other structural problems with the Affordable Care Act. I think as a party, we're going to have to decide what we're willing to engage to address the problems of the Affordable Care Act. I don't see a total repeal happening even if we win the Senate because of the 60-vote issue." The Ripon Society is a public policy organization that was founded in 1962 and takes its name from the town where the Republican Party was born in 1854...

"We think this fight with Al Qaeda and the jihadists started on 9/11," he stated. "That's just not the case. If you remember the bombing that happened in Germany that killed our soldiers in the 1980s, that was designed by a radical jihadist movement. In 1993, they tried to blow up the World Trade Center. The Cole bombing happened in late 1998. Just a few years later, 9/11 happened here on our soil. They were at war with us long before we ever noticed. That was part of the problem."
