Roy S. Moore
That it's about religion. It's not religious at all. God is not religion. I believe in the sovereignty of God. It's stated clearly in our law, clearly in our history, and clearly in our faith. It's not anything I'm making up.feedback

Elissa Slotkin

I am out there every day talking with Trump voters. For the first two minutes of the conversation … they think I am a Republican because of my CIA and DOD experience. Then they ask what I am running as. I say I am running as a Midwestern Democrat and that I have worked for Democrats and Republicans proudly. People will then say they consider themselves independent. That's Michigan.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

The latest CNN poll should be a wake-up call for Republicans. Among its findings: President Trump’s approval rating is at a dismal 37 percent, with his disapproval rating reaching 57 percent. It seems that core group, a third of most every poll, is the only segment of the electorate for which he and anything attached to him are not toxic.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

The Second Amendment, I guess, our forefathers wanted us to have AK-47s is the argument, I assume. Orlando, Newtown, Aurora, San Bernardino – [in] every one of these shootings, the murderer used automatic or semiautomatic rifles, which are not weapons you use for self-defense. They're weapons designed to kill large numbers of people in the shortest possible amount of time. And this guy, reportedly, he had 10 of them in his room, apparently legally. At least some of them were there legally. Why is that allowed? I don't know why our so-called leaders continue to allow this to happen.feedback

Rand Paul

Senators McCain and Graham are torpedoing the budget by insisting on busting the budget caps for more spending. I have told the White House and GOP leaders that if they simply stick to their own caps, the rest of the Budget is fine and I'll vote yes. It is a simple, but important, change they could easily make. The ball is in their court.feedback

Ayatollah Khamenei

They are angry because the Islamic Republic has foiled their plots in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Egypt. Everyone should know that once again America will receive a slap in its mouth and will be defeated by the people of Iran. The European governments have affirmed [their stance] on the agreement and have condemned the statement made by the American president.feedback

Mitch McConnell

My goal as the leader of the Republican Party in the Senate is to keep us in the majority. The way you do that is not complicated. You have to have nominate people who can actually win, because winners make policy and losers go home. Our operating approach will be to support our incumbents and, in open seats, to seek to help nominate people who can actually win in November. That's my approach and that's the way you keep a governing majority.feedback

Charles Grassley

I don't know about the Republican side, but I expect on the Democrats' side, you're going to have a lot of repetitive questions that were asked in the Intel Committee.feedback

Steve Bannon

There's a time and season for everything, and right now it's a season of war against the GOP establishment. It's no longer acceptable to come and pat you on the head, tell you everything is going to be fine, just get these guys in office. Those days are over. We need to move with urgency. The president of the United States deserves their respect and deserves their support.feedback

Lamar Alexander

In my view, this agreement avoids chaos, and I don't know a Democrat or a Republican who benefits from chaos.feedback

Roy S. Moore

I back the president in upholding respect for the patriotism for our country, on two grounds. One, it's respect for the law. If we don't respect the law, what kind of country are we going to have? Two, it's respect for those who have fallen and given the ultimate sacrifice. I'm surprised that no one brought this up.feedback

Kristen Brengel

We are seeing significant rollbacks of wildlife, drilling, water and conservation policies from prior Republican and Democratic administrations. This is a sea change, and they are taking no prisoners. Even national parks aren't sacred for this administration.feedback

Michael Arone - State Street Global Advisors

U.S. earnings are beginning to decelerate. A monetary policy mistake certainly could derail the markets. And lastly, zero could be the legislative victories the Republican Party has as they go towards campaigning for midterm elections next year.feedback

Laurence Kotlikoff and Jack Mintz

Tax Policy Center’s models don’t simulate how the GOP plan would draw investment to the U.S.feedback

Susan Collins

They (Americans) don't want this hyper-partisanship. Mitch McConnell is the Senate majority leader… The president needs him. I'm glad they're working together on tax reform and a lot of other issues. And I'm glad they're meeting this week.feedback

Hugh Hewitt

They will learn a very tough lesson in 13 months if they insist on business their way.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I have great relationships with actually many senators, but in particular with most Republican senators. But we're not getting the job done. And I'm not going to blame myself, I'll be honest. They are not getting the job done.feedback

Kathleen Rice

The Republican playbook for the past four election cycles has been very focused, very clear: It's been an attack on our leader. Is it fair? No. Are the attacks accurate? No. But guess what? They work. They're winning, and we're losing.feedback

Bernie Sanders

Obviously there's been a whole lot of discussion about health care with the Republican effort to repeal and replace, with Trump's effort to try to sabotage. But what is not being discussed is we have a community health center program which now provides health care to some 27 million people all over this county.feedback

Mitch McConnell

A lot of people look at all that [legislative work] and find it frustrating, messy. Well, welcome to the democratic process. That's the way it is in our country.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're probably now closer than ever before. My relationship with this gentleman is outstanding. Some of the people that he may be looking at, I'm going to see if we talk him out of that, because frankly, they're great people. Just so you understand, the Republican Party is very, very unified.feedback

Donald J. Trump

He did not provide details. Last week, the Republican president said he would stop Obamacare's federal subsidy payments to insurers, which are designed to help lower-income people afford health insurance.feedback

Edward J. Markey

This Republican budget scam to hand over the wildest place left in America to Big Oil should be removed from the budget and put on ice.feedback

Kim Guadagno

He's trying to become the leader of the Democratic Party nationwide. He's even further to the left than any Democrat in New Jersey.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The Democrats in the Southwest part of Virginia have been abandoned by their Party. Republican Ed Gillespie will never let you down!feedback

Donald J. Trump

Well, I have a very good relationship with Steve Bannon. I like Steve. Steve is doing what Steve thinks is the right thing. I'm friends with most of them. I like and respect most of them, and I think they like and respect me. The Republican Party is very, very unified. There are some Republicans, frankly, that should be ashamed of themselves. So I can understand fully how Steve Bannon feels.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done. Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!feedback

Steve Bannon

I said, Look, I'll focus on going after the establishment.' He said, Good, I need that.' I said, Look, I'll always be here covering for you.feedback

Steve Bannon

We're not here to defy President Trump. We were here to praise and honor him. And we think the best way to do that is to send somebody to Washington, D.C., out of Alabama – the good folks of Alabama to send somebody that's going to have Donald Trump's back.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I just want him to get repeal and replace done. I've been hearing repeal and replace now for seven years. ... Mitch, get to work and let's get it done.feedback

David Wasserman

Most voters went to polls thinking Hillary Clinton would win. Now they are open to voting for a Democrat as a check on President Trump.feedback

Donald J. Trump

When the premiums go up, that has nothing to do with anything other than the fact that we had poor health care, delivered poorly, written poorly, approved by the Democrats. It was called Obamacare. But I think we'll have a short-term fix, and then we'll have a long-term fix, and that will take place probably in March or April. We will have a very solid vote. It'll be probably 100 percent Republican, no Democrats, but most people know that's gonna be a very good form of health insurance.feedback

Suzanne Maloney - Brookings Institution

He's given Iran the moral high ground and that is an exceptionally difficult thing to do given the history and reality of Iran's misdeeds at home and in the region. It's just malpractice on the part of an American president.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Art Laffer just said that he doesn't know how a Democrat could vote against the big tax cut/reform bill and live with themselves! @FoxNews. The Democrats only want to increase taxes and obstruct. That's all they are good at!feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

Yeah, I mean, I saw, I don't know if it was a study or a poll, or some combination of those two things, that, like, three years ago I was equally liked by Republicans and Democrats. And then Republican numbers went way down, like 30 percent or whatever. And, you know, as a talk show host, that's not ideal. But I would do it again in a heartbeat.feedback

Kevin de León

If John Kasich, Jeb Bush or many other Republicans had won the presidency, I as a Democrat would have been disappointed, but I would have moved on. This is uniquely different. Right away we saw that Donald J. Trump was a clear and present danger to our prosperity, to our progressive values and to our people.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

They're on another vacation right now. I think that we would all be a lot better off if the Senate would stop taking vacations, and start staying here until we actually get some real things accomplished.feedback

Lindsey Graham

Yeah, if we don't, we're dead. You're going to ask me about Bannon, so I'll just go and ask myself. Mitch McConnell's not our problem. Our problem is that we promised to repeal and replace Obamacare, and we failed. We promised to cut taxes and we have yet to do it. If we're successful, Mitch McConnell's fine. If we're not, we're all in trouble. We lose our majority and I think President Trump will not get re-elected. He's a symptom of a problem. Bannon can't beat us if we're successful. And if we're not successful, it doesn't matter who tries to beat us, they'll be successful.feedback

Ted Cruz

If we do nothing, if tax reform crashes and burns, if on Obamacare nothing happens, we could face a bloodbath. I think we have the potential of seeing a Watergate-style blowout.feedback

Dale Ross

You should see the fan mail that I get, especially with the movies. The revolution is here. And I'm a good little Republican, a rightwing fiscal conservative, but when it comes to making decisions based on facts, that's what we do.feedback

Steve Bannon

Right now, it's a season of war against a GOP establishment. Up on Capitol Hill, it's like the Ides of March. They're just looking to find out who is going to be Brutus to your Julius Caesar.feedback

Anita Sarkeesian

The American election destroyed us. We woke up the next morning in tears.feedback

Donald J. Trump

My relationship with this gentleman is outstanding, has been outstanding. We are working very hard to get the tax cuts. We will continue to work hard to get the health care completed.feedback

Brad White

After a day of monitoring his condition, and on the advice of his physicians and other health care professionals, Senator Cochran has postponed his return to Washington. He will continue his recuperation at home in Mississippi. The Senator has expressed his intention to return to the Senate when his health permits, and to fulfill his commitment and duties to the people of his state.feedback

Lindsey Graham

Mitch McConnell's not our problem. Our problem is that we promised to repeal and replace Obamacare, and we failed. We promised to cut taxes and we have yet to do it. If we're successful, Mitch McConnell's fine. If we're not, we're all in trouble. We lose our majority and I think President Trump will not get re-elected [in 2020].feedback

Emmanuel Macron

I constantly talk to the American president, because it's my duty. It's the right way to do it because he is the head of the top power so it's necessary to anchor him to this partnership and multilateralism. We must be more stringent with Iran on its ballistic activity, the missiles it shoots and which are not nuclear and Iran's action in the region.feedback

Lindsey Graham

If we don't cut taxes and we don't eventually repeal and replace Obamacare, then we're going to lose across the board in the House in 2018. And all of my colleagues running in primaries in 2018 will probably get beat. It will be the end of Mitch McConnell as we know it. So this is a symptom of a greater problem. If we do cut taxes and we do repeal and replace Obamacare, it doesn't matter what Bannon [will] do because we'll win. We promised to cut taxes and we have yet to do it. If we're successful, Mitch McConnell's fine. If we're not, we're all in trouble.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

You’re a member of Congress who opposed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the grounds that the plan had critical flaws and the Obama administration had in essence given away too much without permanently cutting off Iran’s path to a nuclear weapon. However, you correctly recognized that President Trump’s decertification stunt would alienate allies, give Iran the high ground and threaten to unravel the JCPOA with nothing to take its place. (The European Union did in fact reject Trump’s gambit, and Iran did crow that the United States is isolated.) What’s more, you’ve now heard that Trump is threatening to impose sanctions (i.e., not issue the waiver) in January to effectively end the deal. What in the world do you do now, especially if you are a Democrat seeing the president try to make you and your party an accessory to a foreign policy catastrophe?feedback

Steve Bannon

In Alabama, you folks were able to turn the tables. You took Mitch McConnell's money and you took it from his biggest asset to his biggest liability. The more money they spend, the fewer votes they get. Yeah Mitch, the donors are not happy, they've all left you. We've cut your oxygen off Mitch. Money is not courageous, but money is smart. Nobody's safe. We're coming after all of them. And we're going to win.feedback

Bob Corker

The greatest diplomatic activities we have are with China, and the most important, and they have come a long, long way. Some of the things we are talking about are phenomenal. When you jack the legs out from under your chief diplomat, you cause all that to fall apart.feedback

Steve Bannon

Bob Corker has trashed the Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces while we have young men and women in harm's way, right? He said he's leading them on a path to World War III, that he is not stable, that people have to keep him moderated… Why some U.S. senator in a position of that authority for the first time in the history of our Republic has mocked and ridiculed a Commander-in-Chief when we have kids in the field.feedback

Steve Bannon

The day of taking a few nice conservative votes and hiding are over. A "season of war on the GOP establishment. We need to move with urgency.feedback

Rich Galen

That got everybody's attention because he's buddy and spoke at the Republican convention. So there seems to be some change. That's part of what's feeding it.feedback

Chuck Schumer

Unless our Republican colleagues act, the American people will know exactly where to place the blame when their premiums shoot up, and when millions lose coverage.feedback

Ted Cruz

It is unfortunate that you've got Republican squabbling. I wish we had the maturity of high school. It is a junior high right down to the cliques. It is like the movie 'Mean Girls.feedback

Ted Cruz

I think this should be an unapologetic tax cut. Not just tax reform, but a real tax cut to generate economic growth.feedback

Susan Collins

I'm often a bridge between the two sides. So I like playing that role, and there seemed to be fewer and fewer senators who enjoy playing that role.feedback

Susan Collins

Republican leaders made the same mistake Democrats made in passing the ACA without a single Republican vote.feedback

Leonard Lance

I favor retention of SALT in its entirety. The last time we had major tax reform in this country it was on the table, but it was eventually taken off the table.feedback

Tom MacArthur

I'm not fixated on one solution. I'm fixated on making sure that the people of my state don't finance tax benefits elsewhere.feedback

Susan Collins

We must stop allowing partisanship to be the preexisting condition that prevents meaningful healthcare reform.feedback

Paul R. LePage

I do firmly believe deep down in my heart that Susan Collins, in order to become governor of the state of Maine, will have to run as an independent.feedback

Amy Fried

She has a strong commitment to the Republican Party not being the party of Trump and LePage.feedback

Susan Collins

I was 99th in seniority when I was sworn in. I am now 15th. I hold a senior position on the powerful appropriations committee, where I have been able to accomplish a great deal for the people of our state.feedback

Susan Collins

The best way that I can contribute to these priorities is to remain a member of the United States Senate. The institution would suffer in your absence. There are very few who have the ability to bring about positive change, you are such a person.feedback

Bruce Lesley

This is the first time they've actually just let it expire.feedback

Joseph Kennedy III

It is reflective of a continued vision for Republican leadership here, and under President Trump, that health care in this country for some reason is a zero-sum game, that you can only extend coverage and care for kids, for community health centers, at the expense of something else. In order to cover somebody, you have to take it away or degrade the quality of care for somebody else.feedback

Jan Schakowsky

People get health care. They may not get Russia. They may not even get North Korea. But health care is personal.feedback

Genoveva Cabrera

I am with Spain, with the civil guard (police), I am a Democrat, I am Catalan, I am Spanish, I am European.feedback

Mark Brewer

She is at the very center of virtually every big policy debate and big vote in the U.S. Senate. She remains an incredibly important player on any issue she wants to focus on: tax reform, you name it.feedback

Paul R. LePage

Senator Collins is so busy trying to stop President Trump's agenda on the national stage, she is out of touch with her own state. She puts other states ahead of the people she is supposed to represent.feedback

Joe Scarborough

I am a Republican, but I'm not going to be a Republican anymore.feedback

Robert Laszewski

We have had bills pending in the Congress off and on for more than 20 years that would have created association health plans. In those years, Republican Congress' could not pass the legislation. Now, he thinks what we all thought had to be done through legislation is something his administration can suddenly do via regulation? Any such controversial regulations will surely be challenged by state-run insurance exchanges and state insurance regulators who will certainly be harmed by association health insurance pools that will attract healthy people from existing state-run pools.feedback

Peggy Noonan

His concerns are widely shared. The senator deserves credit for going on the record with them.feedback

Kevin Brady

No decisions have been reached, or anywhere close to it, but we're having a really healthy discussion on ideas, options, alternatives. The construction worker on the street is taxed higher, so the investment banker in the penthouse can get a break.feedback

Kent Smetters

In the short-run it would likely be more about accounting and profit-taking.
