I think it's a mistake. We ought to do the research. They're worried about a widespread abuse of the drug, which is something to worry about because it is a gateway drug that's a very big problem.

Regulatory hoops significantly delay the life-changing medication Americans need.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Marijuana

It's high time to address research into medical marijuana. To be blunt, we need to remove the administrative barriers preventing legitimate research into medical marijuana, which is why I've decided to roll out the MEDS Act. Our country has experimented with a variety of state solutions without properly delving into the weeds on the effectiveness, safety, dosing, administration, and quality of medical marijuana.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Trump Presidency

Sep 04 2017 - Immigration

I've urged the president not to rescind DACA, an action that would further complicate a system in serious need of a permanent, legislative solution. Like the president, I've long advocated for tougher enforcement of our existing immigration laws. But we also need a workable, permanent solution for individuals who entered our country unlawfully as children through no fault of their own.feedback

Aug 15 2017 - Trump Presidency

I was just eight years old when my older brother Jesse was killed in World War II. As I said on Saturday, Jesse didn't give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home. I will never hesitate to speak out against hate--whenever and wherever I see it.feedback

Aug 07 2017 - Twitter

We're not going back to health care. We're in tax now. As far as I'm concerned, they shot their wad on healthcare and that's the way it is. I'm sick of it.feedback

Aug 02 2017

I'm not going to give up on anything.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Republican Party

If we change those rules, it'd be the end of the Republican Party. And it'd be the end of the Senate. It doesn't help. He just doesn't understand. He'd like to get more cooperation up here. And he's not getting very much, to be honest with you.feedback

Jul 31 2017 - Republican Party

The president said he wants to get it down to 15 percent. That's very unlikely. In fact, it would be kind of miraculous if we could get it down to 25 percent or less. I'd like to get it down to around 20 percent. I'd love to get it at 15 percent if we could.feedback

Jul 28 2017

I love John McCain. He's one of the great heroes of this country. Whether we agree or not, I still love the guy.feedback

With an aging population, our nation's most critical retirement programs – Medicare and Social Security – are feeling an increased financial squeeze that puts their future viability at serious risk.feedback

Jul 12 2017 - Republican Party

I think that's overblown. One of the things that endears the president to me is how nice his children are. And they all love him. So, and he divorced their mothers, and they love him. Donald Jr. is very dedicated to his father. But you know he's not part of the administration.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Republican Party

May 12 2017 - Trump Presidency

It is going to be difficult at best. Anything like that adds to it.feedback

May 11 2017 - NAFTA

May 11 2017

It depends on who they choose, whether it's a controversial pick or not. I don't see why it should be. It should be the best law enforcement person we can find.feedback

May 09 2017

The public wants every dime you can give them. Let's face it, once you get them on the dole, they are going to take every dime they can. We've got to find some way of getting things under control, or this country and your future's going to be gone.feedback

May 09 2017 - Republican Party

Franky, I think if we can get a tax reform bill that would stimulate the economy, I don't think it has to be revenue neutral. Continued deficits and accumulated debt are a genuine threat to individual liberty, continued prosperity and national security.feedback

May 05 2017 - Obamacare

We must manage expectations and remain focused on the art of the doable as we move forward.feedback

May 02 2017 - Republican Party

Are you kidding? I'm one of the biggest advocates for the filibuster. It's the only way to protect the minority, and we've been in the minority a lot more than we've been in the majority. It's just a great, great protection for the minority.feedback

Apr 26 2017

They went into some suggestions that are mere suggestions and we'll go from there. I'm not convinced that cutting taxes is necessarily going to blow a hole in the deficit. I actually believe it could stimulate the economy and get the economy moving. Now, whether 15 percent is the right figure or not, that's a matter to be determined.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - Trump Presidency

President Trump understands better than anyone the lasting damage wrought by past presidents under the Antiquities Act – and he stands ready to undo the harm brought about by their overreach.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

President Trump understands that his predecessor grossly overstepped in declaring Utah’s Bears Ears a national monument.feedback

Apr 24 2017

For years, I have fought every step of the way to ensure that our lands are managed by the Utahns that know them best and cherish them deeply. That's why I'm committed to rolling back the egregious abuse of the Antiquities Act to serve far-left special interests. As part of this commitment, I have leveraged all of my influence – from private meetings in the Oval Office in the President's first week in office to my latest trip to Bears Ears this week – to ensure that this issue is a priority on the President's agenda.feedback

Apr 11 2017

For the life of me I don't understand why the Democrats made such a fuss about this one. They look stupid. I expect Armageddon on the next one because that's going to change, assuming Trump gets another one, the direction of the court. It would certainly keep the court in a more conservative mode for a long time.feedback

Apr 08 2017

I've seen the Senate broken before and we always come back. Hopefully this won't cause too much consternation.feedback

Apr 08 2017

If we do that, the Senate would become like the House. The Senate is a place of deliberation it's not a place where you can quickly move things through, and the filibuster rule is a very great protection for the minority (party).feedback

Apr 07 2017

With the 2018 Senate election on the horizon, I have been giving careful consideration as to whether I will seek reelection. I have never taken any election for granted, and I would relish the opportunity to put my record before the voters. While I have taken steps to run, I have yet to make a final decision. Romney "would be perfect.feedback

Apr 07 2017

I'm planning on running, but if I for some reason withdrew, I'd be thrilled if Mitt Romney would be willing to consider it. He's a big supporter, he and his whole family. I wouldn't want that to happen again. If (Romney) ran, I would hope that everybody would get behind him. He'd be excellent.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - SCOTUS

If the roles were reversed they would have just tromped all over us. I mean, you know, they'd have done the same thing.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - SCOTUS

Well, yeah! In my eyes, the best interest is not having another far-left liberal on the court.feedback

Apr 06 2017

If I could get a really outstanding person to run for my position, I might very well consider [retiring]. While it's no secret that I hold Mitt Romney in extraordinarily high esteem, my musing aloud on the subject has apparently snowballed into a frenzy of premature speculation.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - American politics

I personally appreciate the work that you have done over the years. I appreciate the service you have given to this wonderful country.feedback

Apr 05 2017

You have had a wealth of experience.feedback

I just want to compliment you.feedback

Apr 03 2017

A bipartisan bill would allow us to put in place more lasting reforms and give the overall effort additional credibility.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Obamacare

Either, as far as I'm concerned. Any way we can get rid of those, I think it'd be a good thing.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - SCOTUS

I've seen an awful lot of great people in the law come before this committee. And I haven't seen anybody any better than you.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - SCOTUS

Why anybody in this body would vote against you, I'll never understand.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - SCOTUS

Do you think your writings reflect a knee-jerk attitude against common-sense regulations?feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Supreme Court

Let the American people decide whether they want Hillary Clinton or the Republican nominee to select the next Supreme Court justice.feedback

Mar 20 2017 - Supreme Court

The Senate owes the president some deference with regard to Supreme Court nominees.feedback

Mar 20 2017 - Supreme Court

Something is seriously wrong when the confirmation process for a Supreme Court justice resembles an election campaign for political office.feedback

Mar 15 2017

It might embolden the Democrats if they can win on this issue. And we gotta make sure they don't win on it.feedback

Mar 14 2017

This kind of legislative hostage-taking certainly is not unheard of in the Senate, but in the context of consideration of a nominee for the Office of U.S. Trade Representative, it is totally unprecedented.feedback

Mar 06 2017

We have a right to look it over and see if we like it or don't.feedback

Mar 06 2017

The House has the right to come up with what it wants to and present it to the Senate by passing it. And we have a right to look it over and see if we like it or don't.feedback

Mar 06 2017

I applaud him for his leadership and urge him to continue the difficult work of crafting policies that keep us safe while living up to our best values.feedback

Mar 03 2017

We do have some problems with two or three people on our side that make it so if this becomes a partisan vote we won't have the votes. It's a problem, it's a big problem.feedback

Feb 13 2017

He has experience managing large and complicated private-sector enterprises and in negotiating difficult compromises and making tough decisions – and being accountable for those decisions.feedback

Feb 13 2017

Objectively speaking, I don't believe anyone can reasonably argue that Mr. Mnuchin is unqualified for the position.feedback

Feb 10 2017

I don't think we can roll all over people just because they're in a position of government.feedback

Feb 09 2017

What he said is true – it's correct – and a good judge would take that position.feedback

Feb 09 2017 - Obamacare

It's clear overall enrollment numbers are trending downward for 'Obamacare' over last year, no doubt due to the law's unpopular mandates and high costs.feedback

Feb 08 2017

Even if what she said was true, it wasn't the right thing to do. I've been appalled at the way Democrats have treated Jeff Sessions.feedback

Feb 04 2017

I'm not very enthused about it.feedback

Feb 01 2017

I don't feel a bit sorry for them.feedback

Feb 01 2017 - American politics

We don't have definitive answers to any of those questions at this particular point. And without them, I don't think I can give definitive positions on the proposal. A major concern on tax reform is producing a bill that can get through the Senate. We'll basically need universal Republican support to pass anything through reconciliation. That's difficult to accomplish under any circumstances, let alone on something as complicated as tax reform.feedback

Feb 01 2017

We took some unprecedented actions today due to the unprecedented obstruction on the part of our colleagues.feedback

Jan 31 2017

We have just been presented, just a few minutes ago with a list of demands by the Democrats. They didn't have the courtesy to tell us a week ago. Could have easily done that, although that was too late too because we've had these hearings. We've had all these meetings. We've worked together. I was led to believe they were ready to vote today. I've never seen anything quite like this.feedback

Jan 31 2017

They ought to stop posturing and acting like idiots.feedback

Jan 23 2017

It seems to me that taking this action would undermine your credibility and the credibility of the U.S. when we seek to take on currency manipulation in the future. Are you advising the President to avoid taking actions that undermines the credibility of the United States?feedback

Jan 19 2017

Mr. Mnuchin is an effective choice to lead our Treasury Department. Getting America's economy back on track is a top priority for this new administration, and his wealth of private sector experience will serve him well in this new role.feedback

Jan 18 2017

Congressman Price is immensely qualified to lead the Department of Health and Human Services.feedback

Jan 18 2017

Everything we have done has been above board, transparent, ethical and legal.feedback

Jan 17 2017

Today's report shows only part of the equation – a repeal of Obamacare without any transitional policies or reforms to address costs and empower patients. Republicans support repealing Obamacare and implementing step-by-step reforms so that Americans have access to affordable health care.feedback

Dec 12 2016

We want to get tax rates down for almost everybody. That's hard to do if you want to maintain budget neutrality. We got over $2 trillion overseas that is just sitting there because we're so stupid that we have the highest corporate tax rate in the organized world.feedback

Dec 12 2016

Our companies would zoom and attract people from all over the world.feedback

Dec 07 2016

In the Senate, there's consensus for three years.feedback

Nov 21 2016

The death tax on family farms, small businesses, ranches and estates has crippled hard-working families for far too long. It ought to be repealed, plain and simple.feedback

The only prudent way to move forward – given the complexity of the subject matter, given the many significant substantive concerns that have been pointed out, and given the procedural irregularities – is to issue the regulations in re-proposed form.feedback

Jun 14 2016

Jun 10 2016

The friendship we developed I think was puzzling to many people, especially to those who only saw our differences. I'd say that where others saw differences, Ali and I saw kinship.feedback

May 26 2016 - Supreme Court

Like many of my Senate colleagues, I recently met with Chief Judge Merrick Garland. Our meeting, however, does not change my conviction that the Senate should consider a Supreme Court nominee after this presidential election cycle.feedback

May 12 2016

The whole discussion was very solid, reasonable and a warm and winning discussion. I think you're going to find he's going to be better and better all the time.feedback

Jan 26 2016

Absent comprehensive tax reform that includes shifting to a territorial tax system with base erosion protections, Congress ought to examine viable bipartisan solutions that will effectively target and combat inversions and not tip the balance to tax-driven foreign acquisitions of U.S. firms.feedback
