Last quote about American politics

John McCain
Senators Alexander and Murray have been negotiating in good faith to fix some of the problems with Obamacare. But I fear that the prospect of one last attempt at a strictly Republican bill has left the impression that their efforts cannot succeed. I hope they will resume their work should this last attempt at a partisan solution fail.feedback

All quotes about American politics

Alex Seitz-Wald - National Broadcasting Company

Strange mentioned his support from Trump and relationship with the president repeatedly throughout the debate.feedback

Phil McCausland - National Broadcasting Company

North Korea's leader called President Donald Trump 'a frightened dog' and a 'gangster fond of playing with fire' in an official statement released Thursday... Far from making remarks of any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension, he made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors,' Kim said. A frightened dog barks louder.feedback

Luther Strange

Who does the President support? The president supports me. If you have not followed the President on Twitter, I urge you do so. He just tweeted a great tweet out about his enthusiastic support for my campaign and me.feedback

Roy S. Moore

Well I'm certainly glad I'm not running against the President of the United States. Nor am I running against the Vice President of the United States and I can't tell you what he thinks. Every move he makes. When he goes to the bathroom. When he doesn't like my opponent.feedback

Larry Levitt

This would mean the biggest devolution of federal money and responsibility to states ever, and the results would be very unpredictable.feedback

Larry Levitt

It's quite reasonable to assume that the number of uninsured would jump by 30 million or more at that point.feedback

Anthony Scaramucci

We have Republican on Republican crime all the time. I'm not going to hit back at him.feedback

Charles Grassley

You know, I could maybe give you 10 reasons why this bill shouldn't be considered. But Republicans campaigned on this so often that you have a responsibility to carry out what you said in the campaign. That's pretty much as much of a reason as the substance of the bill. What you want to do long-term is going to be done in the Alexander bill.feedback

Douglas Wigdor

I issued a statement back, saying that if that's really true, then someone needs to tell me about it, as a Trump supporter and a lifelong Republican.feedback

Mike Pence

This may well be our last best chance to stop and turn around and head America back in the direction of the kind of healthcare reform that's based on individual-choice, state-based innovations.feedback

Mike Pence

It's absolutely true to say the Graham-Cassidy bill over time levels out on a per-person basis the way we distribute money on healthcare, which I think resonates with most Americans.feedback

Ron Johnson

If we bring this up on the floor, I think every Republican senator is in play because every Republican senator will be faced with that binary choice. Okay, maybe this isn't everything they want, but the binary choice is: 100 percent guarantee that Obamacare remains in place, and we may have a path to single-payer, versus this choice of federalism, where we start putting the states back in charge.feedback

Jeb Hensarling

We have these repetitive loss [of] properties. So for example, we have one property outside of Baton Rouge [Louisiana] that has a modest home worth about $60,000 that's flooded over 40 times. The taxpayers have paid almost half a million dollars for it. At some point, God is telling you to move. If all we do is force federal taxpayers to build the same home in the same fashion in the same location and expect a different result, we all know that is the classic definition of insanity.feedback

Susan Collins

It seems that it has many of the same flaws as the bill that we rejected previously.feedback

Lindsey Graham

I believe that most Republicans like the idea of state control of health care rather than Washington, D.C., control. We've come upon an idea that is uniquely Republican.feedback

Steven Taylor

Moore's advantage is that he does appeal to the true-believing base. In terms of which of the campaigns is going to be more adept at the ground game, I would think Strange has an advantage.feedback

Steven Taylor

I think that if you were to approach this without any prior knowledge ... Judge Moore would be the more logical 'Trumpian' candidate.feedback

Thom Tillis

This should be important to continue to message to the American people. We've got to keep that in the narrative, and one way you do that is you go to the Senate floor and take a position on a strategy for fixing a failed system.feedback

Thom Tillis

I think we failed in August, and to me, as long as that's out there, we have to continue to show the American people we are not going to walk away from this.feedback

Anita Earls

The stark contrast of having a state that's fairly evenly divided between the two parties and yet has a delegation of 10-3 Republican-Democrat just immediately raises the question of is it fair?feedback

Bill Cassidy

There is a specific provision that says that if a state applies for a waiver, it must ensure that those with pre-existing conditions have affordable and adequate coverage.feedback

Larry Levitt

This is by far the most radical of any of the Republican health care bills that have been debated this year. And the reason for that is that this would be the biggest devolution of federal money and responsibility to the states for anything, ever. It would unleash massive health care debates in every state capital. All these tough decisions would no longer be on Congress' plate but on the plates of governors.feedback

John Morganelli

We have to come up with somebody that's gonna be, I think, a moderate Democrat who's OK on Democratic issues but maybe not be a purist, and who is not going to be susceptible to being painted as a leftwing kook. Because this district is not going to vote for a leftwing kook.feedback

Greg Edwards

The president's inability to address what happen in Charlottesville is beyond unnerving. That we have a president who actually gave right-of-way to white supremacy and white nationalism – that's beyond being a Democrat or a Republican.feedback

Charlie Dent

The district has a slight Republican lean, although in a year like this where one party has control – my party has control of the executive and legislative branches – that party typically runs into a pretty stiff headwind. So I suspect now that the seat is open there will be a considerable amount of investment by both sides in trying to capture it. I believe this will be a very competitive race.feedback

Alex Padilla

California's not just the most populous state in the nation, we're the most diverse state in the nation, we represent the largest economy in the nation, and I think we should have a much more significant voice in who the next president of the United States is.feedback

Barack Obama

Progress is never inevitable. It can often be fragile; it's in need of constant renewal.feedback

Christine Todd Whitman

These aren't Republican and Democrat issues. These are people issues. These are about human health and the environment. Mother Nature could care less whether you're a Republican or a Democrat or which state you live in.feedback

Thom Tillis

After Tar Heels overhauled their code in 2013, the economy went on a tear—and so did state revenue.feedback

Barack Obama

You have to start with a premise and believe that multilateral institutions and efforts are important, and you don't have to cede all your sovereignty and it doesn't make you less patriotic to believe that. You just have to have some sense – and read. It is aggravating.feedback

Patty Murray

I am disappointed that Republican leaders have decided to freeze this bipartisan approach and are trying to jam through a partisan Trumpcare bill, but I am confident that we can reach a deal if we keep working together – and I am committed to getting that done.feedback

John Kennedy

I went in pretty cocky. But the first thing you realize is how hard it is to be a teacher.feedback

John Kennedy

It occurred to me that not many of the folks in that room really knew what public schools were like today. Teachers today are expected to be so much more than just teachers. That wasn't the case when I was growing up. Teachers are expected to be teachers, psychiatrists, nurses, sociologists, psychologists, surrogate moms or dads, as the case may be.feedback

John Kennedy

I'm talking about the technology, you need the supplies, the teacher's salary, a decent environment. You're going to have to pay the teachers more.feedback

John Kennedy

A lot of policymakers don't really understand what it's like to be a teacher in a public school in 2017. Thirty-five or 40 years ago we had one of the best elementary and secondary education systems in the world. We don't. Now we rank about the same as Slovakia, and Slovakians spend about half the money.feedback

John Kennedy

Everybody who makes any kind of policy needs to substitute teach. But you've got to be a real teacher. You can't just go to a couple of classes with the regular teacher there. It is an incredibly hard job.feedback

Hayley Glatter

Substitutes are almost always put in sink-or-swim situations: They're with a class for a limited amount of time, lesson-plan-preparedness is often inconsistent, and students can be less than helpful in describing what they should be working on.feedback

Lindsey Graham

I've never felt better about where we're at. At the end of the day, I really believe we're going to get 50 Republican votes.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Looking forward to Friday night in the Great State of Alabama. I am supporting "Big" Luther Strange because he was so loyal & helpful to me!feedback

Bob Corker

I'm a states' rights kind of guy. Our state has been well run for a long time. To know that our state would have the flexibility to carry out the program with more money than it now has could be a real win for us.feedback

Joe Manchin

The numbers do not work at all for West Virginia, with an older, sicker population and an opioid addiction problem. As a former governor, I like the concept of block grants because they give you flexibility. But the cuts are deeper than the needs we have, and our needs are greater than the money we would have under the bill.feedback

Sabrina Corlette

It's just basically injecting chaos in 50 state capitals for the next two years.feedback

Jeff Flake

Given the choice between Arizona or Washington deciding how federal health care dollars are spent in the state, I'll take Arizona every day of the week.feedback

Becky Hultberg

The cuts could be devastating to our health care system, including rural and frontier hospitals that operate on razor-thin margins. These hospitals are often accessible only by airplane or ferry, so the loss of a hospital means an expensive and disruptive medical evacuation out of the community. Ultimately, patients will bear the consequences, through reduced access to health care and lost insurance coverage.feedback

Orrin Hatch

Everything gets in the way of tax reform, and we are going to have to be prepared to bulldoze through them.feedback

Charles Grassley

You know, I could maybe give you 10 reasons why this [Graham-Cassidy] bill shouldn't be considered. But Republicans campaigned on this so often that you have a responsibility to carry out what you said in the campaign. That's pretty much as much of a reason as the substance of the bill.feedback

Frank Pallone

I would remind Secretary Price that taxpayer funds are not meant to be used as a jet-setting slush fund. My colleagues and I will be looking into this further and we will be asking the HHS Office of the Inspector General for a full accounting of Secretary Price's travel.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

This guy, Bill Cassidy, he just lied right to my face. Guess what? The new bill does none of those things. If your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make. I think that's something that whether you're a Republican or a Democrat, or something else, we all agree on that, right? I mean, we do.feedback

Sarah Sanders

I certainly respect the position that he's in as a parent. He is speaking for the protection of his kid, as he should do. But at the same time, we have to have a program that actually works and we know that that's not Obamacare.feedback

Rand Paul

I think some people just want to do something and aren't too concerned with what they are doing. The people that are putting this forward are immortalizing Obamacare. So I consider this effort to be sort of petty partisanship – they're just taking the Obamacare money, keeping it and taking it from Democrat states and giving it to Republican states.feedback

Chris Krueger - Cowen and Company

There is this menu of items they want to pay for, the estate tax being one of them. It's the candy, not the broccoli.feedback

Jonathan Traub - Deloitte Tax

I do think reform will include, if not outright repeal, then a substantial relaxation and modification of the estate tax rules.feedback

Bob Corker

I'm all for pro-growth tax reform but over a decade it needs to pay for itself per valid models.feedback

Charles Grassley

I think we need that because we're going to have to operate within what can be signed by the president.feedback

Michael Crapo

I don't know a number for an outer limit, but I believe we should have the largest number we can get with adequate dynamic scoring.feedback

Charles Grassley

We are still in the process of negotiating this.feedback

Cassie Smedile

They have been paid with funds from a pre-existing legal proceedings account and do not reduce by a dime the resources we can put towards our political work.feedback

Caroline Pearson - Avalere Health

The bottom line is most states will experience a reduction in federal funding under the bill. States that expanded Medicaid are likely to see some of the biggest cuts.feedback

Larry Levitt

Every state has to start from scratch creating its own health insurance program, in some cases with reduced federal funding and in some cases with increased federal funding. I don't think at this point anybody knows what states are going to do.feedback

Hugh Hewitt

Keep the conservative judges coming, and the Trump coalition will hold.feedback

Orrin Hatch

This idea – whether it applies fully or in some other limited way – can help address a number of the problems we're trying to solve with comprehensive tax reform.feedback

Joseph Antos

Medicaid was probably the policy area that was the most sensitive in the Senate.feedback

Mark Hemingway - The Weekly Standard

We have to remember at the end of the day that something like 90 plus percent of the Republican Party voted for Donald Trump. I'm not sure that was the case at conservative magazines or among Beltway Republicans. I think it is important to remember one thing, though: the fact that there was a gulf between where these intellectual Republicans were, versus grassroots voters, could simply be a legitimate difference of principle in a lot of ways.feedback

Joe Scarborough

No one wanted to admit they liked a show with a conservative Republican on MSNBC in the beginning. For the first few years the reviews were all very snide, but you could tell they were all watching.feedback

Rob Portman

The idea of giving the states more flexibility and authority is a good idea. As a Republican, I join my colleagues in thinking that states are the place where many health care decisions are already being made, and can be made more efficiently to cover more people and to lower costs. I want to see what the impact is on Ohio.feedback

Elizabeth Warren

People are outraged, and rightfully so. Equifax gave criminals a 40-day head start to use the information they had stolen while the rest of us were left in the dark.feedback

John McCain

I am not supportive of the bill yet. We'll talk more about it. I'll talk with my governor and all that. I want regular order.feedback

Chuck Schumer

It would be outrageous for our Republican colleagues to vote for this bill without knowing its effect on people. That, whatever your ideology, would be nothing short of a disgrace.feedback

Hillary Clinton

When I finally challenged Bernie during a debate to name a single time I changed a position or a vote because of a financial contribution, he couldn't come up with anything. Nonetheless, his attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump's 'Crooked Hillary' campaign. But he isn't a Democrat–that's not a smear, that's what he says. He didn't get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party. I am proud to be a Democrat and I wish Bernie were, too.feedback

Andrew M. Cuomo

The mayor won the Democratic primary, I am a Democrat, I support Democrats. And I'll support Mayor de Blasio in the general.feedback

John Delaney

I am comfortable in giving up my seat, which is what declaring early involves and I made the decision this was the right thing to do.feedback
