Just this morning.
I spent nearly an hour on the floor and -- it urging the senate passed legislation in the House of Representatives our defense.
That would open -- mental part of every memorial in this country.
Bipartisan legislation doesn't address any other aspect of the press -- yeah.

Back then it got out of the -- They get it make it.
Everyone understands it's unfortunate president Obama's clients like magazine -- -- From the Obama administration for air traffic.
And and I think their view was -- -- delaying flights and makes them.
Really meant it Republicans and immediately people understood that plane and doing the same thing -- -- stories.
About federal government -- -- parking lot at Mount Vernon a number that is privately owned and operated Sunday on the federal government and you.
-- blocking parking lot.
What makes that decision hasn't been.
-- -- so I think somebody -- -- on the -- that.
President Obama's political operatives at the site throughout the government.
To implement it shut down an acquaintance and -- of the American people.
You you didn't present Saturday confidence right now Russian.
Federal government spent some money they'll -- barricade.
Crushed when the problem is that state Roosevelt federal roads and the governor ordered those -- it and I don't think it's kind of -- -- -- -- -- President Obama and Harry Reid think they shot -- benefit them politically and they want.
The let him yeah that -- we'll work in a bipartisan -- to focus on areas of agreement there ought to be.
This -- bipartisan agreement when it comes to veterans that we didn't honor the commitments and making our veterans -- that's.
That they'll listen to reason and -- Yeah.
The work they've got nothing out.
Getting your -- it and I'm sure he didn't order them immediately.
Political operatives throughout the administration did.
And yeah plus he was the plumber can't -- -- presidential leadership.
President -- -- -- ordinary -- Democrats.
Stop blocking funding for the does not want the funny part -- not -- funding okay.
-- it's almost like yeah.
We need to head -- the director -- Just fine we're.
Have -- front and that there is a significant national security threats in this country that the enemies of this country that terrorists that would seek to do harm to us.
That we have a vulnerability right now and and you know senator Lindsey Graham -- a great question -- that hearing this and where's the commander in chief.
The first responsibility of commander in chief is to protect our national security -- congress last week.
-- -- -- limited continuing resolution that funded all the men and women of the military and another senator Jeff flake.
-- headed to the Director of National Intelligence do you think congress should pass the same sort of funding.
The intelligence community limited -- that and have you recommended the president and the answer to mr.
-- gave was yes.
Congress absolutely should be selling yes I intend to recommended to the president opinion of the days that followed -- him.
The president has been absolutely silent and mr.
-- right and there's a national security threat that we are vulnerable to terror attack.
President -- implementation of the -- tennis exacerbating that risen the president on the up their sank.
Reid and stop your object and let's at least come together on the intelligence community and our defense and then we can worry about -- -- partisan disagreement now.
Right now the Democrats say Republicans haven't gotten there -- Republicans and Democrats haven't gotten there and no one's doing the blade and then you have these unfortunate sacrificial -- it's just.
For instance that that's -- something -- Expletive that's on -- -- so somebody's got to lakers almost yeah merge but some good idea this I'm getting so.
Who's going to do that houses and he's got a -- on the -- -- Well look let me suggest I don't the premise of your question right the -- Republicans in the house.
Have compromised repeatedly four times if you look at where they -- me every Republican believes we should repeal obamacare in its -- didn't start that.
They started in -- with.
Sentences -- senate Harry Reid a Democrat since no absolutely not we will not talk we will not negotiate -- the government and and the house came back it's an ambulance -- compromise let's try something less than what we want how about simply delaying obamacare for a year.
The president delayed Obama -- for big corporations have a -- is saying thanks for hardworking American fans.
The senate over to the senate Harry Reid and Democrats against -- No absolutely not we will not negotiate we will not compromise there is no middle ground shut the government down.
-- third time OK -- and how well we simply delayed the individual mandate.
Just like the president has done for big corporations and at the same time let's -- the congressional exemption that President Obama -- legally given members of congress and again.
Harry Reid the senate Democrats and will -- Tom will not negotiate shut the government and and then we have seen this week.
Over and over -- house Republicans trying to find a middle ground and okay we don't agree on everything.
How about we fund the veterans heavily on our National Guard have a -- -- the national parks heavily on the national institute of health.
And the position of Harry Reid and the Democrats.
He is they will not give in on anything -- -- get.
Five or six Democrats in the Florida senate today and went back and forth where they kept saying it was a 100% of what we want you don't could eat everything.
We will insist the government they shut down one side is refusing to negotiate and -- and let me be a final point.
It was characterize most right.
-- -- For weeks the president refused to talk to Republicans -- were talked congress at all it was -- Harry Reid was urging him.
Don't talk to congressional leaders that the president would talk to the nation of Iran but not to -- and -- end.
He invited congressional leaders to meet with him sat down and and according to speak event and what he said -- meeting was.
We're not gonna talk we're not gonna negotiate how do you invite someone sit -- and talk and say -- refused to talk to you renewed.
Senator Reid has referred to as the coast speaker of the house you have to -- -- -- industry and to have you walk -- each other up all of the sudden.
-- the or the senate.
He looked the other way.
How did it.
Senator -- streets each other with civility that but let me say I had seen -- nice to see senator sure but let me point -- -- -- had happened.
Ad hominem attacks and indeed in the floor of the senate he -- strike -- -- a foot -- -- -- And I haven't reciprocated and I haven't tonight -- -- out what he's voted to do and I think the votes that he's taking a wrong.
I haven't used and insults -- him indeed I would call on senator Harry Reid.
Did the right thing and in fact there was one brief moment of bipartisan compromise that most of the media -- Which is that the House of Representatives passed him.
-- the men and women of the military.
And when it came over to the senate everywhere thought Harry Reid was gonna -- -- about twenty senate Republicans came to the floor to make the argument that we shouldn't hold our service.
Men and -- hospital and the last minute very revealing.
Look great doing -- in times like that in about twenty.
The president's desk and my response not only was not an insult it's just I stood up and commanded -- -- -- bipartisan.
-- and we ought to be all night among the minimum -- -- military.
Really united -- our veterans and I don't understand.
Quite the same principle of land apparently didn't like things just a few days ago it's.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Until he forces obamacare every American that's not reason we -- people.
He won't like at all I don't know.
Republicans if you look at and -- left the house passed.
The house is compromised wartime dissent in the and even today Harry Reid says he still.
-- and the only time seemingly -- as a Republican dream to -- 100%.
-- Obama care like every American despite the fact millions of Americans some.
The reason that.
Is -- every shot tonight Barack Obama got ten.
Think partisan matter any benefit from the -- now.
So cynically an airplane.
It's got everything possible and that's unnecessary cannot run an IC yeah -- great defense.
