I still think President Clinton may have some real problems because he testified under oath. There is a real question of perjury and obstruction of justice.
We can wait 14 months, get a new president and then do a tax cut.
Health care already costs too much. Unfortunately, the bill proposed by Senator Kennedy and many of the Democrats would make it worse. It would make insurance a lot more expensive and therefore less affordable. As a result, millions of Americans would probably lose their health care insurance.
To be sitting on their hands and say 'Well we didn't get into their computer until March of '99' and this guy was a suspect back in '95 is just unacceptable ... I think heads ought to roll.
I'm wrestling with it. My position has always been to have a one-vote majority, but we'll make this work. We're going to accept it and make it work.

This is Georgia's loss, but it is really a loss for the entire country. Paul Coverdell was a good friend, a fine leader and a great senator for the people of Georgia. He dedicated his work in the Senate and his entire life to making the world a better place for other people.
I hope there will be some good news and some good profits, and people will realize we have a lot of outstanding executives, and a lot of companies that are doing a good job, and those are good companies to invest in.

If you really believe the number one priority of our government is the protection of our people, then the idea of being defenseless against an intercontinental ballistic missile or any other type of weapon system that puts us in jeopardy is not acceptable.
But the federal government, our collective government, has responsibilities that none of these other levels of government can fulfill; and chief among these is national defense.
If your basic premise about the fundamental purpose of our government is that it must provide for the common defense, then no other position is possible.
I happen to be one who believes very strongly that state and local governments have their proper roles.
