-- -- -- sent John McCain calling a real American hero.
Here's a surprise it's a prominent Democrat.
Which one but we -- Senator McCain about that and much more earlier today.
Senator nice to see you sir thank you can you tell me why we need -- spend twenty million dollars at HHS to do PR for the new health care.
Maybe it's a another job for Andy Griffith -- -- matter retirement again and getting the -- page in the chest like it's it's just.
Symptomatic of this regime it's all politics all the time and they're gonna spend twenty million dollars to try to -- obamacare which I think.
Is certainly attached which you stopped him.
What's one thing to implement what -- your quarter against the that's a whole another category.
This is just about going out and selling that we already have it is there any any legitimate reasons including million dollars is not some -- -- a lot of money.
First of all part of it is our fault for allowing that kind of -- reading in the bill although obviously that -- a party line vote.
It's just I mean it's it's just outrageous but it's not the first time they've done.
Using taxpayers' dollars in order to hide -- program which is under attack scores not succeeding and this is probably the greatest example of twenty million dollars when we're.
Cutting our defense spending and cutting a lot of other program -- It's just outrageous.
This weekend there estimated Chicago NATO are you satisfied with the product that came out of it or you disagree with -- Well I notice that the president had a lot to say.
Leaving Afghanistan and he had nothing to say about victories.
It's not an accident just tell mom -- not talking.
Peace because they believe relief.
The French announced that they would be leaving two years or.
There was no specific commitments from other countries as two dollars that they would be investing in Afghanistan.
In future years the strategic partnership agreement between the United States and Afghanistan is a good -- now we'll see how -- implement.
But did you ever hear the single word victory.
Past the presence lists now.
He said this is -- in from the Afghan war.
What does that mean I can tell you that we still have a serious problems corruption.
And the Afghan government and sanctuary in Pakistan.
Where the ISI there intelligence network is supporting the Haqqani Network.
Which is causing the deaths of American.
Servicemen and women.
That conflict goes on and there -- serious efforts.
That they're serious areas.
Better we have not been able to bring under control.
And signs of renewed conflict in areas in the especially in the south that previously we had.
So all I can say is that we went to Afghanistan because of 9/11.
Will we be leaving Afghanistan without the prospect of -- returning.
To a base for attacks on the United States of America.
I don't think that question was answered in Chicago.
In Chicago there were protests never in protest numbers cities across the country that -- large -- This new one based on economics of people unhappy with but this is the inequality the -- of the economic picture this country to what extent.
Our politics fueling this economic again protests -- do you agree that it's fueled by economic.
Maybe you'll feel better after -- -- the advertising spend twenty million dollars.
I think people are unhappy because of lack of progress you notice that most of those young people there's protesters were young people.
And they are obviously dissatisfied but.
And I also get a bunch of disparate groups.
From every part of the political spectrum.
And for some it's an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday afternoon but.
The point is that.
NATO in Chicago.
Is bound to attract -- that -- Protest what.
I'm not worried about the protest when I'm worried about.
And most Americans are worried about is the future of our economy which is still consuming a tree in -- so dollars in -- every year.
Which -- still had nearly half the homes underwater which -- recovery is now stagnated in many respects.
And President Obama spends his time beating up on people who have made money.
Is that I'm in that -- he'd been there -- designed for this battle of the recently about private equity.
And that has been -- back a little bit by the mayor of Newark he said he wasn't critical about private equity.
The president -- dialing back and it.
Is this that you believe and.
First in this class for warfare at its -- to start.
Second while I -- I've always feel the mayor of New York as an American hero.
And by the -- -- Jim he's the real deal in my view -- mayor nor the mayor of Newark and when I -- me and the mayor of -- is a real legitimate American hero and he is backtracked since what you said on Meet the Press but.
The fact is that private investors risk their money.
To engage it to -- invest in enterprises.
Believing that they will succeed.
Obviously that's what capitalism is all about.
The last country that I remember where they kept every business in business and never let one fail was a Soviet Union.
So yes companies fail but when you have success stories like staples.
Five million dollars in a warehouse to what it is today then obviously.
That is the way they capitalism works and -- the mayor Norquist right.
We don't want to attack people who invest and take a risk.
To help a company succeed and sometimes it fails and do that we expect them to try to get some of their money out of it of course.
This class warfare thing that the president continues to orchestrate.
Is a way not to have to address of record and that record.
Act and the economy still.
Since -- -- the Great Depression.
I'm curious in -- Cards and -- in different -- 2008.
And you are pressing -- states out how -- things be profoundly different than under the -- President Obama administration and as you sit and watch how things unfolded.
You know like I always hesitate -- getting into that but.
One our debt and deficit would be would it would have been addressed austerity measures would have been imposed.
I -- set sat down -- Republicans and Democrats together.
And recognizing that entitlements are the elephant in the room and we have to make tough decisions the same way.
-- Reagan's Tip O'Neill made a decision about Social Security went back.
Think we would be leading from him.
And not from behind.
The United States of America is exceptional nation.
And we leave.
And we certainly wouldn't be standing by while thousands of people are being massacred in Syria.
Senator thank you.
