Ben Sasse quotes

Jul 12 2017

This institution is stunningly dysfunctional. I've done crisis and turnaround projects in nine sectors of the economy. The human capital problems in Washington, D.C., make everything else pale in comparison.feedback

Jul 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

If we can do a combined repeal and replace over the next week, that's great. If we can't, though, then there's no reason to walk away.feedback

Jul 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

If we can do a combined repeal and replace over the next week, that's great. If we can't, though, then there's no reason to walk away. I would want a delay, so that we could get straight to work. And then I think the president should call on the Senate to cancel our August state work period.feedback

Jul 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

There's an important to distinction to draw between bad stories and crappy coverage and the right citizens have to argue about that and complain about that, and trying to weaponise distrust.feedback

Jun 30 2017 - Obamacare

You campaigned and won on the repeal of Obamacare. So did every Republican senator. We should keep our word. On the current path, it looks like Republicans will either fail to pass any meaningful bill at all, or will instead pass a bill that attempts to prop up much of the crumbling Obamacare structures. After we gave our word to repeal and replace Obamacare's monstrosity, we should not go back to our states during August as the American people struggle under fewer choices and skyrocketing costs. We should remain in D.C. at work.feedback

Jun 30 2017 - Obamacare

Sounds great, Pres. zrealDonaldTrump. We are agreed. We need to break the logjam.feedback

Jun 30 2017 - Obamacare

On the current path, it looks like Republicans will either fail to pass any meaningful bill at all, or will instead pass a bill that attempts to prop up much of the crumbling Obamacare structures. We can and must do better than either of these – both because the American people deserve better, and because we promised better.feedback

Please just stop. This isn't normal and it's beneath the dignity of your office.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - American politics

This bill is not a full repeal; this bill is not a full replace; what this bill is is mostly just a Medicaid reform package. Nebraskans are dissatisfied with it and so am I.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - Dodd-Frank Act

More cereal for dinner. First of all, let's not disagree about everything. So this is a constructive project, right? I'm not trying to beat up on millennials. But there's something weird in human history if you can't tell 10- and 15- and 20- and 25-year-olds apart, cause that's new. Adolescence is a gift – .feedback

Jun 03 2017

I'm a 1st Amendment absolutist. Comedians get latitude to cross hard lines. But free speech comes with a responsibility to speak up when folks use that word. Me just cringing last night wasn't good enough. Here's what I wish I'd been quick enough to say in the moment: 'Hold up, why would you think it's OK to use that word?feedback

Washington feels like a kiddie soccer game – tons of frenzy but no strategy. All our leaders – Republicans, Democrats, Congress and the executive – need to be thinking bigger than the news cycle and planning for the policy challenges of five and 10 years in the future. Are we going to have restored public trust or further eroded it? That's the question each of us should be asking.feedback

May 17 2017 - Trump Presidency

There's a lot here that's really scary. It's obviously inappropriate for any president to be trying to interfere with an investigation.feedback

May 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

It's very difficult for a president to break laws related to classification. But the debate about imprudence, that's a really important debate. It's not helpful that this was with the Russians. Right? I mean this was just weird.feedback

May 16 2017 - NATO

We and the Russians do not have aligned interests. They want to exacerbate our internal distrusts of each other, they want to fracture NATO, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin is an enemy of the freedom of religion, speech, press and assembly which is the beating heart of what America means.feedback

May 15 2017

At our house we have come to conclude that building and strengthening character will require extreme measures and the intentional pursuit of gritty work experiences.feedback

May 10 2017

Regardless of how you think Director Comey handled the unprecedented complexities of the 2016 election cycle, the timing of this firing is very troubling.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - Chemical weapons

American troops met injustice with strength. The use of chemical weapons cannot become normal.

We are in the midst of a civilization-warping crisis of public trust, and the President's allegations today demand the thorough and dispassionate attention of serious patriots.feedback

Feb 06 2017

We don't have so-called judges.feedback

Feb 05 2017

I'll be honest, I don't know what the president is trying to do with statements like these. There is no moral equivalency between the United States of America – the greatest freedom loving nation in the history of the world – and the murderous thugs that are in Putin's defense of his cronyism.feedback

Jan 28 2017 - Islam

If we send a signal to the Middle East that the U.S. sees all Muslims as jihadis, the terrorist recruiters win by telling kids that America is banning Muslims and that this is America versus one religion. Our generational fight against jihadism requires wisdom.feedback

Mar 01 2016
