I can’t watch the tape because I’m taping something now, so I’m going from memory. I’ll clean this up more later.
Radnofsky goes first. The question is about Iraq. She supports staged withdrawal connected with goals for the Iraqi government to meet. She also spoke about paying for the medical needs of returning vets and how that contrasts with continued tax breaks.
Jamison, the libertarian is next. He’s got a point about funding. None of the costs for the Iraq war are part of the actual budget and therefore are not counted toward the deficit. He went on to say that funding the war on an emergency basis allows politicians to tack on other spending, since they know it won’t get vetoed.
Kay gets the “C&R” chant out first. C&R x 2. She mentions the rest of the NIE — is that classified? (I’ve got to look this one up.) “We should come up with ideas. That’s what leaders do.” She wants limited partition.
J first — SS and Med are not entitlements — just a source of revenue. More money is taken out of paychecks than is dished out. Mentions fraud. Look at market alternatives to SS.
Kay — We will not walk away from our commitment — Bush — Kay has singlehandedly increased the vet admin budget.
R — massive healthcare — attacks the medicare drug bill — dough-nut — preventitive care — save money, (Damn she’s good) got the website in — attacks Kay record on vets.
Q#3 — Had you known about no WMD, would you –
Kay -Wouldn’t have voted, but she claims Bush wouldn’t have asked for it. 9/11 (secret document)
R – Our senators made a mistake. Derilict in the leading.
J – diplomacy could have solved it. It was a mistake. But we are there. Goals — Attacked Bush — leadership goal left to the military.
Q#4 Lybia – embolding NK and Iran, force
R — yes. 1999 Kay voted to NOT radify the test ban treaty. Excuse of the time – it would not preserve US nuke supreiority. Look forward — US must take a lead.
Kay — going back — C&Rx3. It’s not the same. The NIE SHE mentioned? I thought you did that. C&Rx4. NK
J — treating them like allies — don’t label other nations — don’t develop a laundry list — diplomacy again. Some snark! Go back to inspectors — still a moment for diplomacy
Q#5 Fence, Immigration amnesty deportation how?
R — comprehensive — economic Attacks Kay — voluntary deportation — Senate’s latest — fence won’t work –7Billion — attack!!!!
k – comprehensive tautology. excuse for her proposal — but it’s gotten wide acclaim!
J — wall but in NOLA! — wall from Mexico is LAME — problem is SSC fraud — focus on existing laws — don’t need to fear immigration.
K — Introduced term limitations constitutional amendment?
J — no need for term limits — third party politics sec of state thingy. About me session! Help America Vote Act — ran out of words — campaign finance.
R — voters don’t trust — attack Kay again! stand by the commitment! Leardership — a joke! About me time again.Integrity voted against — K Street hostess.
Q# Congressional pay raise — minimum wage — stand on it’s own
R — yes! Attack again — senority means nothing. Plans to resign?
J — researched the numbers. $20/hour in comparison — pay what you want — min yielded his time
K — double speak — Ted Kennedy. Small business — 9/11 — military –
J — attacks Kay, irresponsible way to legislate — internet gambling — Constitutional amendment
K — MY cities?!?!?!?!?!? transparency
R — end earmarks - 41st with Kay — corruption — transportation bill Kay voted for the bridge to nowhere — called Coryn Junior!
Last one — prescrition drugs — negiating — VA
K – we should look at that — private companies competing — doughnout hole we — I dont do pork — #2 in Fed Spending
R — yes negtiating — drug profiteering — damn she’s tough (mean?)
j — univeral manditory health insurance — my neighbor not having health insurance isn’t good for me — damn this guy is not a libertarian –
Two minute closing statement.
I’m wondering about this Lib guy. Paranoid me thinks he is trying to pull from the Dems.
K– lower taxes, tax cuts, tax cuts, tax cuts,
troops freedom — PHIL GRAHAM?!?!?!?
I’ll post this since Kay B will be on tomorrow night. I’ll get all of it together and post somehting comprehensive by Sunday at the latest.
