Mark Sanford quotes

May 24 2017 - Immigration

It would require either radically opening immigration or a radical change to demographics as we are having 10,000 baby boomers retiring each say. If you look at productivity growth, it would require numbers, again, that we haven't seen since the golden days of 1958 to 1967 – in the final wave of electrification, consumer appliances, and the completion of the highway system – to achieve what we're seeing. Even if we went to 1990 numbers, we would only see one-quarter of what is necessary to achieve 3 percent growth.feedback

May 24 2017 - American politics

Whatever your budget is, just base it on real numbers and then let's have a food fight. But let's not base it on fooling the American public into believing that you can do all this because we're going to have a Goldilocks economy that we've never seen before.feedback

May 24 2017 - American politics

I have looked every which way at how you might get there, and you can't get there. I think it is just disastrously consequential to build a budget on 3 percent growth. The Bible says you can't build a house on a sandy foundation. What it does is it perpetuates a myth that we can go out there and balance a budget without touching entitlements. It's not only a myth, it's frankly a lie, and if it gets started at the executive branch level it moves from there.feedback

May 24 2017 - American politics

What this does is it [prevents] real debates from happening. Legitimately, myself and Democratic colleagues can see things quite differently, but for us to have a real debate, we have to base it on real numbers. I would also say it's important because I'm a deficit hawk as you well know, and if you're wrong on these numbers, it means all of a sudden we've created a $2-plus trillion dollar hole for our kids and grandkids here going forward.feedback

May 24 2017 - Unemployment

It assumes that the stars perfectly align with regard to economic drivers. Can you guess the last time we had an unemployment rate of 4.8 percent, growth of 3 percent and inflation held at 2 percent? It's never happened.feedback

May 23 2017 - Trump Presidency

Three percent, I'm not seeing how you get there mathematically.feedback

May 04 2017 - Trump Presidency

They got it clear that threats were not going to work with me.feedback

May 04 2017

Some would have said it would have been apocalyptic, that if you, you know, go to the well once and you can't there and you go back again and you come up short, it says a lot about your ability to govern and to move legislation of consequence. And so I think it would have had rather significant ramifications.feedback

Apr 27 2017 - Trumpcare

Unequivocally so. From a conservative's vantage point, there are a number of different things that have been added, and I think we got to the high-water mark on what could or couldn't be added, and people were ready to strike a deal and move on.feedback

Apr 27 2017 - Affordable Care Act

It's not a repeal – let's be clear. I think it's very important to be clear with the American public and not to oversell this thing: Oh we repealed it. No, we haven't repealed the Affordable Care Act. We have trimmed back a couple of its key features. But there are a couple of key features that are still in there. The fact that a state has to get a waiver says how much it is in force and effect.feedback

Apr 23 2017

I think that those kinds of threats are counterproductive. It all, I guess, fits in love, war and politics. But I don't think it's particularly productive to his own legislative agenda, and we'll see what comes.feedback

Apr 09 2017

What you have is a mousetrap. Back home, you've got the mayor of North Charleston riding around in a Meals on Wheels truck saying, I don't think we should cut this' – and he was an early Trump supporter.feedback

Apr 07 2017

They're not part of the intelligentsia of what happens in Washington. They're just conservative folks. It's a nice little story line, that it's the Freedom Caucus's fault. Goes much higher up the food chain. I don't think it's unfair to characterize some of the president's claims as outlandish, unreal, and unfounded. Is as true as saying the Mexicans are going to pay for the wall. He seems to jump from subject to subject and people aren't quite sure how long and sustained his attention span is, whether he's carrying out a threat or pushing for a legislative change.feedback

Apr 07 2017

Anti-establishment has a context and a meaning. It means going against the normal course of things in politics–but not just in theatrical terms. Also in terms of policy.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Republican Party

I've heard nothing of substance at this point that would break the logjam.feedback

Apr 01 2017

All of our lives are composed of trade-offs. Each person has a different calibration on where 'go' means 'go' and where 'no' means 'no.' I wouldn't attempt to suggest for another where their own lines ought to be on that balancing act of personal philosophy and assigned roles or jobs, but what I would say is that I wish Mick the absolute best.feedback

Mar 31 2017

I mentioned this to a couple of colleagues, and they said it sounds very Godfather-ish. Their point was that this approach might work in New Jersey, but it probably doesn't work so well in South Carolina.feedback

Mar 27 2017

Seeming stopping points can ultimately prove to be beginning points in life.feedback

Mar 20 2017

It's like Alcoholics Anonymous – you've got to first recognize you've got a problem before you can deal with it.feedback

Mar 15 2017

This is an issue where there really is consensus within the scientific community. There's a larger debate on what to do about it, and that's a much more complex debate, but it's like with Alcoholics Anonymous, if you don't even recognize the fact that you have a problem, you're never going to address the problem.feedback

Mar 11 2017

What we hear from the White House is, this is a work in progress. [Trump Budget Director] Mick Mulvaney came here and talked to the Freedom Caucus two nights ago and he said this is a work in progress and we're going to be open to amendments that you have to offer. Then we hear from leadership take it or leave it.feedback

Mar 08 2017

What we have now is an opening bid.feedback

Mar 02 2017

This has been baking for seven years. Those other years came up much more immediately. They didn't have the political urgency that repeal does.feedback

Feb 21 2017

It was a spirited town hall meeting, but I think that you learn more at times from folks who hold an opposing viewpoint than folks who hold the same viewpoint. So, you know, I got something out of it. I think a number of them got something out of it. It turned out to be a 3½-hour long town hall meeting. It was lengthy, and there was a lot of conversation, and I think that's what we want.feedback

Jan 24 2017

The blame game is silly and weird. Whether it's distraction or detractors, what you cannot do is chase every story that you don't like.feedback

Jan 11 2017

The presidential campaign, the entire Congress, there really hasn't been discussion of debt, deficits and government spending.feedback

Jan 06 2017

It makes little sense to conduct seismic testing off the Atlantic coast, when the Atlantic Ocean has been excluded as a possible site for offshore drilling for the next five years.feedback

Aug 08 2016

That's kind of the heart of all of this.feedback
