It's easy to talk about cutting people's rates and doing the things that benefit people. But if you start taking things off the table before you get started, you make that very difficult. And what I hope is going to happen is the president will leave this effort to the tax writing

I don't really worry about that caricature. Once you come into the Oval Office and you understand the tremendous decisions that you have to make and the magnitude of those and the effect that it's going to have on the world, I think that there's a tremendous soberness and typically when you go in, you end up with lots of very highly qualified people around

The most important public service I have to offer our country could well occur over the next 15 months.

Oct 02 2017 - American politics

The big question first will be: Will Congress have the intestinal fortitude to actually do the base-broadening? Will we have the ability to look people in the eye and say, No, we're cutting out that loophole because we want to get rates low'? That'll be the first test. There may be some people that are stepping away from fiscal sanity, but there are many of us that will

I told people that I couldn't imagine serving more than two terms. I think I'm going to have more impact over the next 15 months than I've had in the last 10 years. I think it's more about the resentment that people have towards the fact that they don't see Washington solving problems. You know, the president's helped with that by, you know, mocking the leadership on both sides of the aisle. But I think it was an outgrowth of tremendous frustration with Washington. So yes, I will remain a deficit hawk until I leave

Oct 01 2017 - North Korea

I think that there's more going on than meets the eye. I think Tillerson understands that every intelligence agency we have says there's no amount of economic pressure you can put on North Korea to get them to stop this program because they view this as their survival. Should we step it up a little bit? The answer is absolutely yes. I mean, we should step it up. I mean, you know, we're moving to a place where we're going to end up with a binary choice

One of the lowest moments for me in the U.S. Senate was when those operations didn't take place. I don't think it was ever properly

Apr 06 2017

Each side escalates. The base on each side of the aisle demands more. This is not a good moment, which is a huge understatement, for our

Apr 06 2017

I don't think there's any question that the next time there's a big legislative issue, and one side of the aisle thinks it's the most important thing in the world to them, at that moment there will be a movement towards [getting rid of the filibuster] on the legislative side. I know there are members that have already discussed

Apr 06 2017 - Republican Party

The prudent course of action would be for him to come to Congress and consult and discuss privately what he's going to

Apr 06 2017 - American politics

Everybody says: Oh, we are never going to do it on legislation. Come on! … If we continue on the path we are on right now, the very next time there is a legislative proposal that one side of the aisle feels is so important they cannot let their base down, the pressure builds, and then we are going to invoke the nuclear option on the legislative piece too. That is what will happen. Somebody will do it. It was a pretty audacious move, let's face it, and obviously it created some hard feelings on the other

Apr 06 2017 - Chemical weapons

The regrettable failure to take military action in 2013 to prevent Assad's use of chemical weapons remains a blight on the Western

Apr 04 2017 - Republican Party

The Senate is composed of people that are total supply siders who could care less about the deficit. We're in charge, let's have a big time. Some huge tax cut that takes us underwater is just not interesting to me. Pro-growth reform

Mar 22 2017

I've let Secretary Tillerson know there's a lot of concern about the budget issue. We could feed 4 to 6 million more people each year. I think every department of government should be looked at continuously, and so I'm all for us looking into that. But I would like to walk through some of the areas that he (Tillerson) feels he wants to stress and obviously Congress ultimately will have the say (on the budget).feedback

He's already developing plans to begin ratcheting back Putin's nefarious behavior. He's won status and respect of the president, of McMaster, and talks all the time to Jared.

Mar 06 2017 - Iran

These provocative tests are just the latest example of Iran's dangerous actions that demand a coordinated, multifaceted response from the United States. The administration has already begun to push back in the way that we should, and I look forward to working with them as we prepare to introduce bipartisan legislation to deter Iran's threatening behavior on all

Feb 03 2017 - Iran

Right now we really paved the way for them after year seven or eight to obtain the ability to quickly make a nuclear weapon with no breakout time so I think this is just the beginning. You are going to see an effort to really change the terms of this over

Feb 03 2017 - Sanctions

I think what happened over the weekend was a wake-up call. I do think, on the other hand, when they threaten with - when they threaten us in other ways. Let's move away from the nuclear agreement when they have their naval vessels threatening ours and doing things, they need to be aware that there's a new day and we're not putting up with the things they've been doing in the

Businesspeople tend to go straight at a problem. It's kind of the world that they have lived in. As opposed to dealing with the CEO of a company, you're dealing with a country and you've got popular opinion within that country. So it's important, in that context, to understand ... those

I've got to believe they realize that. What I don't know yet is whether it's a concern or not on their end. It may be that this is the way they want to roll right now. So I think we'll see. They know that there's more than just concern from a few

He already has submitted a completed nominee questionnaire and will soon submit an extensive financial disclosure.
