We need to secure the border, number one. We’ve got to get this under control. But at the same time, we've got to make it more predictable for people to get their citizenship and come here. And that's going to take sitting down with both parties and discussing how do we do that in a humanitarian way where we address both issues at the same time.
I don't think he should have done it the way he did it, and I said that before, and I said it after. You know, I think that they did make it more targeted than they were originally, but it wasn't nearly what I thought they should do, which was do it for the people that need it the most, the poorest people in our country that have that debt and not go above median family income.
People are really, really grumpy. I'm grumpy too. I'm not grumpy about White House not being involved on the political side of things. I'm grumpy because we haven't been able to pass legislation that I think would be good for the country, and that we should be able to tell people about so that we can hold off a beginning of a return to Donald Trump, donald Trump'd be a lot better off and we would be having Donald Trump spend Donald Trump time out in the country talking to people than stuck in Washington talking to people about legislating.

I mean Donald Trump has believed from New Day Donald Trump walked into White House that Donald Trump's above the law. And nobody is above the law, so Donald Trump's going to slow Joe Biden or his son down. Donald Trump's going to delay Joe Biden or his son, but in the end, Donald Trump won't stop Joe Biden or his son from doing the people's business here.
President Trump's selfish decision to raid military construction funding is a new low in his ridiculous pursuit of a campaign promise. These projects, including the Space Control Facility at Peterson Air Force Base, were identified by the Department of Defense and the Trump Administration as critical to our military readiness. Taking money from operational priorities to pay for a wasteful and ineffective wall is grossly irresponsible and undermines our national security.
I feel awfully lucky that I had health insurance. It did cost $ 92,000, and if my family hadn't been insured, it would have been a disaster for us -- and it would have been a real disaster for most American families, i think about not only that, but what it would mean if you were an American citizen and you didn't have a primary care doctor who could give you a screening that let you know I had cancer.
I think if we have to build a big coalition of Americans -- Democrats, Republicans and independents -- to overcome the broken politics of Washington, DC. It will never fix itself. It will only become more bitter and more partisan if we as a country don't come together and say, we demand something better, i think if we do that, we can not only beat Donald Trump -- we can fix our broken politics in Washington, and we can leave our kids in this country an honorable future that we can be proud of.
I'm not sure it's about something missing. I think it just happens to be a moment in history when we're going to have a billion people on our side and I think that's good, i think it was a tragedy for us to lose to President Donald Trump.Bennet -- unconscionable that we lost to President Donald Trump.Bennet. We've got to find a way back from there, not just to win, but to govern the country as well.
For people in my state, outdoor recreation is not just an avocation -- it's a vocation. And that likely rings true for the Olympic athletes here today, our economy is going to depend on us getting it right on climate, and I am incredibly optimistic that we will do the right thing, whether we have to drag Washington there or not.

It is customary for senators to introduce nominees from their home states, i'm not here today to take a position or persuade any of our colleagues how to vote. I am keeping an open mind about this nomination and expect this week's hearing will shed light on Judge Gorsuch's judicial approach and views of the law.
