Senator Kennedy: The lesser of two Socialists is still a Socialist


>>Bill: 15 PAST THE HOUR. WATCHING THE U.S. SENATE TODAY. WE EXPECT THE VOTE ON A MAJOR SPENDING BILL. BRING IN SENATOR JOHN KENNEDY SERVING ON THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AND OTHER THINGS. HOW ARE YOU DOING?>>GOOD MORNING.>>Bill: HOW DO YOU GO BACK HOME AND EXPLAIN TO FOLKS THAT YOU AREN’T CUTTING, YOU JUST CONTINUE TO SPEND AND WE’RE ADDING MORE TO THE BIG MASSIVE PILE WE’VE ALREADY BUILT UP. HOW DO YOU DO THAT, SENATOR?>>WELL, I’M NOT GOING TO HAVE TO. I’M VOTING NO. LOOK, HERE IS WHAT I LEARNED IN THREE YEARS ABOUT THE BUDGET, BILL. EVERYBODY AROUND THIS PLACE, DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN, SAYS WE NEED TO SPEND LESS. BUT IT’S LIKE GOING TO HEAVEN. EVERYBODY WANTS TO GO TO HEAVEN, NOBODY IS QUITE READY TO TAKE THE TRIP. AND SO WHEN IT COMES TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE, TO REDUCE THE SPENDING, THEY DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT. LAST YEAR IN THE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE I OFFERED AN AMENDMENT TO DELAY THE PAY RAISES FOR OUR 2.2 MILLION FEDERAL EMPLOYEES. I SAID WE CAN’T AFFORD IT RIGHT NOW. THERE ARE 30 PLUS MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE. I GOT TWO VOTES. ONLY ONE REPUBLICAN VOTED WITH ME. THE REST OF THEM OPPOSED ME.>>Bill: I HEAR THE CASE YOU ARE MAKING. DESPITE THAT, IT WILL PASS TODAY.>>YEAH, PROBABLY.>>Bill: HOW DO YOU BREAK THE CYCLE, IF EVER?>>IT’S REAL SIMPLE. YOU JUST DO IT. THE OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET SENT OVER HUNDREDS OF SUGGESTIONS ON WHICH I THINK MANY REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS COULD AGREE TO REDUCE SPENDING, CONSOLIDATION OF PROGRAMS, ECONOMIES OF SCALE, STOP GIVING CONSULTANT CONTRACTS AT THE I.R.S. TO CONSULTANTS THAT OWE BACK TAXES, DUH. NONE OF THOSE SUGGESTIONS WERE CONSIDERED AND I’M VOTING AGAINST THE BILL. I’M NOT SAYING EVERYTHING IN THE BILL IS BAD. I LIKE TO INCREASE DEFENSE SPENDING.>>Bill: GOOD STUFF FOR THE MILITARY. ANOTHER HOT TOPIC UP THERE. DEMOCRATS ARE HAMMERING JOHN RATCLIFFE. I DON’T KNOW IF THIS IS REAL OR IF IT’S SOMETHING MAYBE THEY DON’T KNOW HIM WELL ENOUGH. LET ME ASK THIS.>>I DON’T KNOW HIM. I DON’T KNOW HIM. LOOK, MY FEELING IS THAT A PRESIDENT WHOMEVER THE PRESIDENT IS, IS ENTITLED TO SURROUND HIMSELF OR HERSELF WITH ADVISORS THEY FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH. BUT MY JOB IS TO ADVISE AND CONSENT AND I DON’T KNOW MR. RATCLIFFE. I HAVE READ THE NEWS ARTICLES ABOUT HIM. I WANT TO GET TO KNOW HIM AND DO RESEARCH IN HIS BACKGROUND. I HAVEN’T MADE UP MY MIND.>>CHUCK SCHUMER WENT OFF YESTERDAY SAYING HE WASN’T QUALIFIED. WATCH HERE.>>HE IS SO PARTISAN AND HE HAS BELIEVED IN SO MANY CONSPIRACY THEORIES THAT HE IS EXACTLY THE WRONG PERSON TO HANDLE DNI. YOU NEED SOMEONE TO SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER AND SOMEONE TO TELL THE PRESIDENT IF YOU DO THIS THERE IS A DANGER OF WAR OR A DANGER OF AMERICANS BEING KILLED. RATCLIFFE HAS SHOWN NO INCLINATION TO SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER.>>Bill: THERE ARE REPUBLICANS RUN TO RATCLIFFE’S DEFENSE. HE HAS BEEN ON THE LEADING EDGE LOOKING AT THE INVESTIGATORS OF THE INVESTIGATION FOR THE WHOLE TRUMP CAMPAIGN STUFF. A QUICK ANSWER ON THAT HOW YOU THINK THIS IS GOING TO GO.>>WITH RESPECT TO SENATOR SCHUMER, YOU HAVE TO CONSIDER THE SOURCE. I SUSPECT MR. RATCLIFFE WILL BE CONFIRMED. I JUST WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT PEOPLE WHOSE VOTES I’M BEING ASKED TO GIVE BEFORE I MAKE THE VOTE.>>Bill: GOT THAT. WHAT DID YOU THINK OF LAST NIGHT? DID YOU SPEND ANY TIME WATCHING THE DEMOCRATS DEBATE?>>I DID.>>Bill: WHAT DID YOU THINK?>>I’M NOT BUYING THE STORY LINE OF PROGRESSIVES VERSUS MODERATES. I WOULD REMIND YOU THAT THE LESSER OF TWO SOCIALISTS IS STILL A SOCIALIST. AND WHAT I HEARD LAST NIGHT EVEN FROM THE SO-CALLED LESS LIBERAL CANDIDATES — I’M NOT IMPUGNING THEIR INTEGRITY. EVEN FROM THE LESS LIBERAL CANDIDATES, I HEARD A JOB KILLING, SOUL CRUSHING SOCIALIST AGENDA. THE ONLY THING MISSING WAS THE CUBAN NATIONAL ANTHEM. SAME OLD STUFF. SOCIALISM, ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, ABORTION, SOCIALIZED MEDICINE, MORAL GOODS, FREE ENTERPRISE, BORDER SECURITY, SANCTITY OF LIFE, YOU’RE ON THE JOB HEALTH INSURANCE, THOSE ARE ALL MORAL BADS, AND AT THE RATE MY DEMOCRATIC FRIENDS ARE GOING, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL HAVE A STARK CHOICE IN THIS ELECTION. IT WILL BE GROWTH VERSUS REDISTRIBUTION. IT WILL BE DO YOU BELIEVE IN MORE FREEDOM OR MORE FREE STUFF? AND MY DEMOCRATIC FRIENDS WANT TO PAY FOR THAT MORE FREE STUFF OUT OF YOUR BANK ACCOUNT.>>Bill: IT’S GOING TO BE INTERESTING. WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO TOO, BY THE WAY. IN ALL LIKELIHOOD DEMOCRATS WILL TAKE THIS NOMINATION ALL THEIR WAY TO THEIR CONVENTION

  1. Democrats is no brainier , they want United will be come Canada's ! Free health care we are American country remember that 😅😂😁😄

  2. Hypocrite. You push through a 1,9 T tax cut for the rich. But you want to hold a pay raise for fed. Employees. What an a$$

  3. These scumbags are lying to us. Repub ran cities and states are the absolute worst in the country. Help the people that put you in office. Stop lyin to us, we can change things real quick. They are working on another tax cut to the rich. What about us??

  4. How the hell can we continue to defend and support the 11000 lies about America. We did our job and they run with the money. 110 million gone from the inaugural. Who gave them that money? What about us?? Repub ran cities and states are the worst in the country. What about us???

  5. Is there someone who cares what Chuck Schumer has to say about anything? Chuck is precisely the wrong person to open his gob about anything. Stale turd needs flushed.

  6. Trump gave farmers billions in government money during the trade war. This is a form of socialism that none of you would ever dare address.

  7. Finally found out why the TRUMP / RUSSIA INVESTIGATION STARTED in the FIRST PLACE. THE SWAMP WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE BRITISH BREXIT VOTE. BRITAIN WANTED TO INVESTIGATE THE POPULIST MOVEMENT, MUCH LIKE THEY DID WITH THE TEA PARTY. BRITAIN HAD NO EVIDENCE OF RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE BREXIT VOTE, BUT THAT DIDN'T STOP THEM FROM MAKING THE ALLEGATION.

  8. "Speak truth to power" is so cliche'…and it's like the word 'racist'…tossed out there anytime someone wants to shut down or attack anything/anyone…. and what's worse, it's usually THEIR version of the truth.

  9. Vote out all Russian loving republicans, gutless traitor's. Time to build the gallows and watch them all swing!

  10. Really appreciate this gentleman yet very powerful and strong.
    We need more leaders like him in our government.

  11. Satan Schumer. Gives me the willies big time! But I love me some John Kennedy. He is the real deal and also very witty.

  12. Fed cut interest rate i told you people the economy is not doing that great for alot of people. 👁

  13. Lmao Pete said that they’d call us socialists no matter what… and here they are… calling us socialists no matter what. You want socialism? I’ll vote for people that will show you socialism. BernieWarren2020

  14. Medicare Medicaid and social security are socialist programs. They take care of regular people, not corporations. Republic and are hoping that no one actually knows what it means. We aren't that dumb

  15. I wouldn't stop to give these clowns a ride if they were stranded in the desert with no water. 🙈 🙉 🙊

  16. How about a pay cut from top to bottom of government, military ( low ranking personnel) needs a pay increase do to alot of them are on food stamps..

  17. Look, one year they spent a million bucks to grant a Florida college to investigate if climate change was true. Waste is the enemy. Change the food stamp authorizations .

  18. Bastard schumer's depends are wet.  He is afraid of Ratcliffe.  All dems are afraid of Ratcliffe.  I'm wondering how many women the dem is going to hire to accuse of him sexual assault?  Dems are good at it.

  19. Dem-exist, Democrat states need to form their own union from these republican backward states. They bring nothing to the economy and piggy back on democratic states

  20. "Chuck Schumer just went off yesterday." Chuck Schumer; aka, Upchuck Scumbag; aka, Count Scumula; aka, Cuck-a-do-little-do; went off the minute he wandered out of his mothers womb! If Marlin Perkins and Jim Fowler were alive today, they'd have a field day netting him.

  21. You lost the election, isn't that what Obama said. You lost dems, you don't get to make the nominations.

  22. you didn't have a problem with that business tax credits problem putting us a trillion dollars more $600 billion to the military it's a problem when it's democrats

  23. Poor Republicans. Looking for Communists under every bed in the 50's now want to label every Democrat a Socialist. Didn't work then, won't work now.

  24. Someone should give McCarthy and the Republican Party the definition of socialism. But of course, they know they are lying when they call healthcare socialism. All first world western countries are capitalist and have varying social policies like healthcare, pharmacare and free or subsidized post secondary education.

  25. In my opinion, SENATOR “Chucky” SCHUMER handles himself LIKE A cross~dressing FLORIST from San Francisco, CALIFORNIA. I could be wrong … we need more people like “CHUCKY” and PELOSI in politics.

  26. So conservatives are selling some bizarre notion that social democracy is socialism. And they wonder why people call them stupid. No dem wants the state to own all business. Do you want social security and medicare when you retire? You do? Then you are a socialist, according to what you all are calling the democrats. Social programs like medicare and the military dont make a country socialist.

  27. ohn Kennedy and the other GOP Castrati just keep licking the big black boots of Comrade Trump-ski, Moscow Mitch, and their pal Putin.

  28. The White House recently announced that it would be providing an additional $16 billion in welfare to American farmers affected by the trade war between the U.S. and China. I fixed the first line with the word "welfare", since that is exactly what it is. You can call it subsidies but it is still welfare. I thought Republicans didn't believe in socialism, because this is exactly what this is. Are the farmers proud of their vote? The farmers can change this in 2020. Vote people, Hillary is not around anymore.

  29. A Democratic government could be compared to a digital computer architecture having inputs, processing, and outputs. The inputs being votes at the ballot and information about the economy on a data bus. This being connected to local and state governments and Congress which is the central processor. Within the state governments and Congress, there is chip architecture and logic. Logic gates of all types for decision making. An and gate can be likened to a democratic process where all inputs must agree. All of the logic of the Congressmen is routed to the arithmetic logic unit, that could be likened to the supreme court. Finally, the function of the President could be that of an enable signal sent to the address bus and various departments (chips). Form there informing the public as to decisions made and actions to be taken by various peripherals, banks, law enforcement, military, and other departments. The timing chip could be allocated to the setting of interest rates. Various gates can be compared to senators in their debates, such as and, or not and, not or exclusive or and not gates. Or the various parties could be designated by a logic high or logic low, or by assigned logic code. Much more detail could be included in this comparison model to create a fully functional digital model of government. This may be of help in streamlining the governmental decision- making processes for greater efficiency and elimination of errors in interdepartmental and branches of government. It may even lead to virtualization of government. To assist actual real governments in the decision making processes.

  30. Can't take that "truth to power" crap from the Democratic members and the left. Drop it please, it means nothing.

  31. I like this Representative from the sportsman's paradise . He has always been level headed and decent. Many happy returns Mr. Kennedy !

  32. Socialism go to hell or go to China Communist it's not work here!! Send AOC & Bernie Sender one way ticket to China Communist

  33. Go ask Nordic countries why they are almost perfect societies: SOCIALISM..Education, healthcare, housing, jobs..For all. Not just for the people on the picture….In the US that "for all" means exactly that: Only for the guys on the picture.

  34. The greater of two right-wing conservatives is still dumber than Mortimer Snerd.
    After two and a half years of Trump/Republican leadership, we have the largest deficits ever recorded.

  35. Reduce your military spending….. that's breaking the cycle. Oh wait!!…. this is AMERICA we're talking about, …about as much chance of that being done as dancing on the head of a pin.

  36. Schumer talking about "speaking truth to power" is really rich!! He wouldn't know truth if you hit him upside the head with it!

  37. I'm in South Louisiana, and I voted for Sen.KENNEDY. I have known him a long time. He is ONE of the most Honest men in our governing body. I trust this man enough that he will do the right thing. As far as i know he has never lied for anyone or anything. He will not disappoint.

  38. He's absolutely right. The choices are between "diet socialist" and "socialist with extra sugar and caffeine" (and the latter option seems to be expired and prone to repeating itself).

    I was a Democrat until Bernie entered the race. All the Democrats want to do now is pander to the millennial layabouts, SJWs, or liberal arts majors that can't find a decent job. People call Biden a moderate but he's for a fifteen dollar minimum wage and free community college. If he's "moderate" I don't know what is.

    I hate the religious fundamentalism some Republicans exhibit, and I didn't care for Bush's war, but at least they're the party that believes in people earning success, rather than having it handed out to them on a silver platter.
