11:51 am
there is no problem that cannot be solved. it takes leadership. radical islam will not surrender. somebody has to defeat them. with a plan that will allow us to be safe at home and protect our friends abroad. i have the background judgment and experience to take the fight to the enemy and a more successful way. i lost my parents at 22. i think i have a heart for this job. what your president needs more than anything is a heart for his country. or her country. without a heart, it is just all talk. i want to give you not only my background and experience, but i want to give you my heart. tos is the only way i know take you back as a nation. to do everything i can to save
11:52 am
the american dream that has been there for me and darlene. there is something i won't do to get this country back on track, including being yelled at by my own party. thank you very much. [applause] senator lindsey graham appearing yesterday at the iowa state fair. his senate colleague, florida senator marco rubio is there today. we plan to bring you live coverage of his remarks at 11:30 but we cannot due to the weather. it is raining like crazy there. here's a tweet commenting on the scene. he says rubio takes the dmr soapbox and the rain picks up. we plan to bring you the remarks later today on c-span. that lateralso know today, new orleans mayor speaking at the national press club marking the 10th anniversary of hurricane katrina. you can watch that at 1:00 here on c-span.
11:53 am
more of our live coverage from the road to the white house now. we bring you remarks from former hewlett-packard ceo carly few fiorina.carly [applause] carly fiorina: i am thrilled to be engaged in this tradition of presidential politics. i have to set the record straight when someone introduces me graciously. a life that is only possible in the united states. here that aossible woman can start as a secretary and go on to run for the presidency of the united states. [applause] i, like everyone else have had my share of hardship. i battled cancer. the power of love and faith.
11:54 am
we lost our younger daughter to addiction. sometimes needs a helping hand and someone to take a chance on us. i will not give you -- i want to answer as many answers as i can. i will tell you about a question i was asked. early on in my presidential race. i was asked on a national television program whether hormones prevented a woman from serving in the oval office. when we think of a standard incident in which a man's judgment might have been clouded by his hormones. [applause] right there in front. you are up. you about like to ask
11:55 am
raising the minimum wage and how that would impact the u.s. trade and additional -- [indiscernible] carly fiorina: the question is about raising the minimum wage. i believe that minimum wage should be a state, not federal decision. thatkes no sense to say the minimum wage in new york city is the same as the minimum wage in mason city, iowa. remember we have to that a lot of minimum wage jobs are jobs where people start. in these jobs, they learn skills to move forward. we need to be honest about the consequences of raging -- raising a minimum wage. one is that young people trapped
11:56 am
in poor neighborhoods will have less opportunity to learn skills and move forward. i started out as a secretary in a real estate firm. my husband started out as a tow truck driver. i tell young people all the time, don't worry about getting the perfect job. just get a job. any job. [applause] nearly every job, you will learn things about yourself. you will learn things about the world around you and skills you can use to get a better job. we need to understand where growth in jobs comes from. and it doesn't come from the federal government telling businesses how much to pay workers. isre a job comes from companies and businesses, family-owned businesses and farms. many of you started out in these. those a small, family-owned
11:57 am
businesses and farms create two thirds of the jobs in this country, they employ half the people. we are crushing them under the weight and complex city. the power of the federal government that is powerful and wealthy and well-connected that is crushing the small and powerless. every time we destroy a small business, we destroy a community bank. we are destroying the opportunity for someone to get that first job, learn skills, and get a better job. [applause] [indiscernible] this gentleman is an inventor. built ontry was
11:58 am
innovation and entrepreneurship and small business ownership. you know what goes on in washington, d.c. his big companies get together and they write the rules that advantage the big. they make sure they understand the roles going forward. who is it that is trying to companies?ab they're getting together with government regulators and saying keep them out of here. a reform bill going through congress is supposedly going to reform the patent system like many things that washington, d.c. does. [no audio] this bill which was written by big companies and politicians recall -- would call, as edison a patent troll.
11:59 am
need to be careful when big pieces of legislation are moving their way through congress. generally there is a big company behind it. many have been lobbied strongly by those that want to get the rules in place. i have lobbied against that bill for many months. [applause] [indiscernible] question was: the about drilling in the gulf of mexico. we must be, we can be, we will president the arena a energyaa, powerhouse. we have the resources to do wes, the expertise to do it, must be responsible stewards of
12:00 pm
our resources and of our land and planet. of all the people that tell us we can't do this or drill, we can't keep the coal industry going. they all say the science of climate change. let me tell you what scientists say. if you want to quote science, you have got to read the fine print. all the scientists that tell us climate change is real and man-made tell us this that a single station acting alone will make no difference at all. we can destroy every job in this country, we can destroy the agricultural industry, the epa as of the end of this month, the environmental protection agency will control 95% of the water in the state. just like they control the water in california for decades. as a result, the agriculture industry in california is in deep trouble. we can destroy all of these jobs in this nation. we can destroy industries. here's the truth.
12:01 pm
those livelihoods and lives are being destroyed not at the altar of science, but at the altar of ideology. this is about ideology, not science. [applause] one of the reasons to be the global energy powerhouse of the 21st century, exporting natural gas, whatever it is, one of the reasons to be the global energy powerhouse is not just because it creates jobs. it is not just because it makes it harder for the bad guys to be quite so bad. it is also because we need strong industries in order to be able to innovate. the answer to issue is now is innovation, not regulation. [applause] >> [indiscernible] just wondering if you could give us a brief view of iran, iraq,
12:02 pm
afghanistan, the isis situation, including our military situation. carly fiorina: the question is about iran, isis, the foreign policy issues that are critically important. i know more world leaders on the stage than anyone else running with the possible exception of hillary clinton, but i did not do photo ops. i had substantive meetings. [applause] i know whether it is with vladimir putin or benjamin netanyahu privately, or doing business in china for decades, or understanding many of our arab allies, i know this. when the united states of america does not stand with our allies and confront our adversaries, the world is a very dangerous place. these are the principles i would apply. first, we must have the strongest military on the face of the planet and everyone has to know it. [applause]
12:03 pm
second, we must care for those who have served us. it is a station on our nations on earth that the uva has been broken for 20 years. in the professional political class talks about fixing a lot of things, but somehow, they have never fixed that. we need someone who knows how to translate a good speech into results. i do. third, on day one in the oval office, i will make two phone
12:04 pm
calls. the first one will be to my good friend benjamin netanyahu. we will reaffirm that we stand with the state of israel. [applause] the second will be to the supreme leader of iran. realistically, he might not take my phone call. [laughter] he will get the message. and the message is this -- new deal. until you open every military facility any time for inspections, the united states without anyone else's permission or collaboration will make it as difficult as possible for you to move money around the global financial system. we can do that and we must do that. i urgently hope that congress will vote down this deal. the rest of the world has moved on. china and russia have never been negotiating on our side of the table. we have to cut off the money flow. those phone calls are critically important, but they are a signal loud and clear to every ally we haven't every adversary we have that the united states of america is back in the leadership business. [applause] two more quick points on this. i would not call vladimir putin. we have spoken way too often to him. i would immediately begin rebuilding the missile-defense program. i would move military in and out of the baltic states and conduct
12:05 pm
aggressive military exercises and mr. putin will get the message. [applause] finally, i would hold a camp david summit immediately with our arab allies. the king of jordan is a man i have known for a long time. he has asked us for bonds and materials. we have not supplied them. he is fighting isis on the ground. he is going to china to get that help. the egyptians have asked to share intelligence. we haven't, but i would. the kurds have been asking us. our arab allies know this is their fight and they are prepared to fight it. they cannot fight it without leadership and resolve from the united states of america. [applause] >> [indiscernible]
12:06 pm
carly fiorina: the question is about alzheimer's. i lost my father to alzheimer's so i understand the heartbreak. many of you who have followed my campaign for a while know i believe the government is broken. huge, powerful, corrupt. by the way, 75% of the american people agree with me. that does not mean that there aren't things we should be investing in. we need to be investing in research around these critical diseases just like we need to be investing more in mental health, or treatment of drug addiction. something i know very close to my heart. it is amazing to me that every time we say there is something important that we need to invest more in, the federal government says, we need more money.
12:07 pm
you want to secure the border -- how long has the border been insecure, by the way? 25 years. we need more money. you want to repair more roads and bridges, we need more money. how can it be that the federal government gets more money every single year, and has been doing so for 50 years, debts and deficits increase every year, and the important things always cost more money. i will tell you how it is possible because we never look at how we are spending the money. in fact, we do not even know anymore how we are spending our money. the only thing that gets talked about is the rate of increase over last year's budget. that is why every agency gets bigger and bigger and bigger. guess what? when you have a bloated bureaucracy, no consequence for failure to perform and no reward for good performance, guess what happens? it quits performing. the federal government needs less money. we need tax reform.
12:08 pm
we need to be revenue neutral not revenue reducing. we need to hold people accountable. we have to go to some kind of pay-for-performance environment. we need to go to some version of zero-based resident so we actually know where all of our money is being spent. [applause] ultimately, the federal government must invest in those things that are truly important, like research for cures a basic diseases of the strongest military on the face of the planet or securing the border. the government has to invest in those things that are important and quit spending money on those things that are not important or do not work or are not jobs. [applause] >> [indiscernible] carly fiorina: the question was about big companies have too much influence.
12:09 pm
what is the plan to curb that? ask yourself a basic question. if something is so complicated that you don't understand it, what do you suppose the chances are of getting taken advantage of? >> 100%. carly fiorina: 100%, you are right, sir. if we want to stop the spread of crony capitalism, what we must do is not just reduce the size and power and weight of the federal government, we must simplifies it a 73,000 page tax code. by the time i left hewlett-packard after six years of leadership there, we have turned it into a $90 billion firm. we led in every product category and segment. if i did not like a 73,000 page tax code, i could hire lobbyists to take advantage of all that complexity.
12:10 pm
the nine person real estate firm i started out in could not handle it. the reason we are destroying businesses is because a small business cannot handle the weight, the complexity. the only way to level the playing field is to simplify dramatically. every time the federal government passes a law that puts us deeper into an industry, what happens? get bigger. if you doubt that, look at dodd frank. what is the result of dodd frank? 10 wall st banks, who helped write that bill by the way, have become even bigger, more powerful wall street banks and thousands of community banks have gone out of business. what happened to obamacare? what do you see happening right now? health insurance companies are getting bigger. drug companies are getting bigger. meanwhile, small hospitals are going out of business. the only way to curb the power of the big, powerful, wealthy and the well-connected is to simplify.
12:11 pm
if you have a three page tax code that anybody can read and fill out, you do not need to hire mountains of accountants, lawyers, and lobbyists to figure it out. [applause] yes, ma'am. in the pink and white striped shirt. the question is -- how do i feel about the planned parenthood videos? i am pro-life. [cheers and applause] i believe that science is proving us write every day. -- right every day. you don't have to be pro-life to understand the hideous nature of what is going on here. this is about the moral character of our nation. when you can have employees who target poor communities, who are pushing women into later term abortion so that they can more successfully harvest body parts even though late term abortions are demonstrably bad for women, you can only be horrified when
12:12 pm
you see employees picking over a petri dish for body parts while they say -- look, it's a baby. there is no excuse. planned parenthood must be defunded. [cheers and applause] [booing] anyone who buys the democrat argument, with all due respect, that this is about women's health, you need to look at all of the other facilities that provide women's health services. you need to look at how many mammograms they actually do. you need to look and understand the foundation of planned parenthood, which from its very inception targeted poor women, african american and hispanic women. there are more african-american lives of boarded in new york
12:13 pm
aborted in new york city every year that are born alive. that, ladies and gentlemen, is not right. [applause] so, if congress does not have the courage to defund planned parenthood, i tell you what -- when we go to zero-based budgeting, i simply will not provide the money to fund planned parenthood. [applause] i have one final question. in the time that i have left, let me just leave you with this thought. this is the most extraordinary country on the face of the planet because our founders knew what my mother taught me, everybody has a god-given gift. i am a conservative because i know that no one of us is any better than another one of us. everyone of us is gifted by god. every one of us has the capacity to live a life of purpose and meaning. our founders created a country in which you have a right to find and use your god-given gifts to fulfill your potential.
12:14 pm
that's what they meant when they said life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. let me leave you with love this country must be. think of lady liberty. is rewrite and resolute. she does not shield her eyes from the realities of the world, but she looks out into the world as america almost -- always must and she holds her torch high because she knows she is a beacon of hope in a troubled world. and lady justice who hold a sword because she is a fighter, a warrior. she holds the scales. and she says all of us are equal in the eyes of god. so all of us must be equal in the eyes of the law and , awful andpower powerless alike. and she wears a blindfold. with that blindfold, i believe she says that it must the true, that in this nation come in this
12:15 pm
century -- and, ladies and gentlemen, it can be true. it doesn't matter who you are. it is a matter what you look like. it doesn't matter your circumstances. and it doesn't matter how you start. in this nation, every american's life must be filled with the possibilities that come from their god-given gifts with liberty and justice for all. thank you so much, ladies and gentlemen. [cheers and applause] thank you so much. god bless you all. [chanting] >> go, carly, go! >> how has visibility of your campaign changed? the message hasn't
12:16 pm
changed. more people know who i am in more people know what i am saying. when i went into that happy hour debate, so-called, less than 40% of republican voters had ever heard my name. not a celebrity. i am not a professional politician, and i have a chance to introduce myself. what people are listening to what i have to say and more people are concluding that she can do this job. >> a lot of your platform is technology. how would you use that and why? fiorina: it allows us to reconnect citizens to the purpose -- to the process of the government. when i said we had to go to zero-based budgeting, the only way the professional politicians and washington, d.c., are going to move in that direction, they have to feel pressure from the citizenship. i will go into the oval office regularly, maybe a radio address weekly and saying, please take
12:17 pm
out your smartphone. i want to ask you questions. we need to go to zero-based budgeting. press one for yes, press two for no. congress will act when they feel pressure. it is one example for how to use government -- technology to govern more effectively. >> what it think of plans to reduce the cost of college? ms. fiorina: this is how socialism starts. congress creates the problem and then steps in to solve the problem. it has in no small measure created our problem. theas increased the cost of four-year education by forcing a whole set of very complicated accreditation procedures on a whole set of colleges. those are very spencer to adhere to. given up the cost of
12:18 pm
contributedtion -- to the high cost of education. it used to be a competitive industry. they decide what interest rates should be. and 6%ld be between 4.5% while the government is paying 1.5% in their own debt. it sounds like a record to me. we need a competitive industry. we need as many choices as possible for parents. my husband went to check school. it is a great option for a lot of people. we need the federal government out of the higher education business and we need to give parents and students as many choices as possible about where to go and how to fund it. >> you said you want to repeal obama care. what would you do with health care if you were president? ms. fiorina: i am a cancer survivor.
12:19 pm
i know how important it is that people get the health care they need. but obama care is a monster bull failure. it is so complicated now, 70 plus thousand pages. nobody knows what is in it. you see hospitals try to consolidated, drug companies. meanwhile, emergency rooms are a 50% or more. health insurance p.m. zara. -- health insurance premiums are up. fewer and fewer doctors are accepting medicaid patients shared so who are we serving? . mallards -- toto manage. we need to try what we have never tried in health insurance. we never try to competitive industry. cozy littled this game between regulators and insurance companies. we used to do it in 50 states. now we have it in nationally.
12:20 pm
we need real competition. >> you said you will not have a food on a stick. ms thierry no: i might -- . fiorina: i might break that i might eat something on a stick after all. thank you so much. those are fantastic ideas. we always talk about them every presidential election. led government demonstrate [indiscernible] we've got binders full of good
12:21 pm
ideas. we do. and we never implement them. what am i doing here? >> i came here from new york. ms. fiorina: thank you. ms. fiorina: are you going to sell these? >> no way. thank you very much. ms. fear enough: you are cheap fiorina: you are cheating on me. look at all these other signatures on hand.
12:22 pm
i understand why people are so frustrated with immigration. politicians have been talking about solving it for years and years and they will not do it. i agree that we finally need to secure the border. i agree that we need to support all of those illegals who have committed crimes. i agree with that we need to be defending century cities. but we keep talking about this and do not change it. we will actually go and secure the border and fix immigration once and for all, have a border verification system that actually works so we can make it mandatory. we -- we always talk about the stuff and never get it done. >> can we do it at the bottom of the steps? fiorina: i'm going to eat
12:23 pm
some corn. >> thank you so much. rina: please don't fall down the steps. leaning over backwards at the iowa state fair. am i trying to go down the stairs? of course, you can shake my hand. i wasn't sure which hand it was. >> do you believe that the issue
12:24 pm
of birthright citizenship should be changed for those who have children in the united states? ms. fiorina: we showed talk about what it would take. it would take an amendment to get that changed. honestly, i think we should put all of our energy, all of our political will over finally getting the border secured. both of those things have been broken for a long time. donald trump has part of it right. there is no question we should be defunding century cities and deporting illegals who have -- sanctuary cities and deporting illegals who have committed crimes. this.wen, we need to do need to secure the border . we need to fix the immigration
12:25 pm
system. we have different programs, border crossing cards that are issued and we never check whether somebody goes home. half the people who are here late -- who are here illegally came on a legal visa. there are loads of ideas on how to get it fixed. yet somehow, it never gets done. i will get it done. >> he has an idea of raising fees on mexican ceos and diplomats to pay for the wall. in your worldview, is a possible? ms. fiorina: i think it is the toted states of america'role secure its own borders. it's our job to secure our borders. the political class has failed us in this regard for 30 years. >> how has your fundraising changed from your first debate. ms. fiorina: better. >> can you talk about any
12:26 pm
numbers? ms. fiorina: i will not share any numbers. well. are doing online we are doing even better now. it is important to remember, when i went into that debate, less than 40% of republican reporters had ever heard my name. i am not a celebrity. i am not a professional politician. introduced in any real ways to the american public for the first time. when people hear me and say me, they will understand what i stand for and are in their support. there staying power in the outsider candidate movement that your report -- that you represent? ms. fiorina: i think there is staying power. if you look at polling data, what you will find is 75% of the american people now say the federal government is corrupt. that is a huge number. 82% of the american people now think we have a professional moreical class that is
12:27 pm
focused on protecting its own power and position than in getting any work done. ofwhen you have huge amounts people say, you know what, this eight working anymore. the federal government is not serving us either. whatever your issue, whatever your cause, whatever your problem that you hope would be solved by now, it he political class has failed you. >> the think you will be on the main stage? ms. fiorina: we are going to go eat some corn. so no one falls down the steps, ok? everyone can talk. ms. fiorina: i think somebody wants a picture. you are so welcome.
12:28 pm
what's your name? >> nick. ms. fiorina: are you enjoying the fair? >> yeah. fun?iorina: what parts are >> we watched of the parade. ms. fiorina: careful, careful, careful. thank you.
12:29 pm
>> [indiscernible] ms. fiorina: one of the things we need to have is the strongest military on the face of the planet. that is true. men, women, logistics, material. >> we are turning up the corner.
12:30 pm
>> you are amazing. >> that's going to be a wild. -- a while.
12:31 pm
ms. fiorina: he is my produce supplier. >> how are you doing? ms. fiorina: does he ship it in everyday? the most wonderful buyers. they bring it in from all over iowa. without john, i could into do it. ms. fiorina: you've got to have corn to eat. >> it is all iowa corn. we try to get that to everyone.
12:32 pm
the big hubbub is about. you have to wait all year long until the first of july. this year, it was earlier. usually, it is knee-high by fourth of july. ms. fiorina: because of the rain. >> yes. ms. fiorina: i want to try iowa. >> all right. if i have a bite, then you will get a bite. i've got to sing for my supper here. i've got to work. >> and then we are going to make her talk.
12:33 pm
>> this is our first year during the corn stand. ms. fiorina: what were you doing before? >> we do lemonade. ms. fiorina: this is the first time you have done climb. -- done corn. >> this is the first time we have done corn on the cob. we have been here for 75 years. is this your first time here? ms. fiorina: it is. always long, i have seen candidates go by. you are the smart one to come here. we appreciate it. we put it in a pot and steam it for a minute. ms. fiorina: i am getting it on your floor. >> don't worry about it. whenever i shook corn at home, i
12:34 pm
stand outside. this brings the sugar to the surface and then we grow it for a minute. that caramelize is the sugar and makes it really sweet. this is like caviar. you can top it with anything and it tastes really good. do all that you before you cut it and put it in the pot. >> by the time a patron gets it, it is a four-minute process at the most. that is how fresh alcorn is. you are doing -- fresh alcorn is. you are hired. cornis is how fresh our is. you are hired. you are going to win. but if you don't. you can come see us.
12:35 pm
we put it on the grill and we grill it so it has a smoky flavor. ms. fiorina: i'm trying to remember so when i go home i can do this.
12:36 pm
>> i don't want no meat. just the way it is. >> you want it like this with nothing on it? >> whatever you got. >> who is next?
12:37 pm
ms. fiorina: that was outstanding. good job. all right, guys. you've got to try it.
12:38 pm
12:39 pm
>> iowa corn. ms. fiorina: what a concept. i have to do this interview first. >> for some at the fair? ms. fiorina: it is. >> what do you think? it is such a tradition. it is great fun. >> you are the smartest candidate because you are the only one to walk 50 feet away from the soapbox and visit. ms. fiorina: seemed pretty obvious to me. we are in iowa and this is going. >> what is your message to the voters and what has been on their minds when they speak with you? ms. fiorina: 75% of americans now believe the federal government is corrupt.
12:40 pm
82% of americans think we have a professional political class. what i talk about is what our country was supposed to be. it was intended to be a citizen government. we have a federal government now that is so big, so your credit, so incompetent, so corrupt that we are crushing opportunities in this nation. i also talk to them about, every presidential cycle, we have politicians talk about stuff, the same stuff, secure the border, reform social security -- yes, the tax code is now 73,000 pages and social security has never been reformed. politicians talk a good game. they want a leader with a track record and actually translating words into result. that's what i do. >> you had quite a reception when you talked about jobs,
12:41 pm
having run a major corporation. businessmenut small . there are a lot of small businessmen and women here in iowa during what will you do for them? ms. fiorina: i started out as a secretary in a nine-person real estate firm. i mention that because most american families started the way my husband and i did. those kinds of businesses create two thirds of the jobs and we are crushing them. we are destroying more of them than we are creating them for the first time in history. crushingn why we are them is because of this crushing blow of government combat setting -- complexity. a huge company. you can hire all the lawyers in the world to figure out how to make that complexity work for you. cronyism.lled
12:42 pm
we have to hold them accountable. >> you are talking tough up here. you said you would call the supreme leader of iran on day one. that's right. i will also call benjamin netanyahu to let him know that we stand with the state of israel. until you open every military and nuclear facility, anytime, anywhere, the united states of america will make it difficult for you to move money around in the world. we can do that. we don't need anyone's permission. say to any bank in the world, if you do business with iran, you will not do business with the united states of america. you must stop the money flow.
12:43 pm
>> i'm going to break the rules. we are not supposed to talk -- personalally things. but i am the father of two daughters. if you become president, was specifically would you do to model for their future? ms. fiorina: i hope very much that i am a role model every day. my parents taught me that character and integrity and hard work are the foundations of a good life. realizehat people will that it is not that women are better than men. not at all. everybody has god-given gifts. but women represent half the potential of this nation. women are 53% of the vote. women and girls have as much to contribute to this nation as boys and men. we need to be a country where everyone, regardless of their
12:44 pm
contribute. we don't have that nation today. that is what drives me everyday. you are up in our latest poll. the momentum is growing. where do you see going/ ms. fiorina: i need to keep doing what i am doing, getting out there and speaking to as many people as possible. as people get to know me and hear what i have to say and how i will approach problems, i build support. i need to introduce myself to more and more voters. >> while less question. do you have -- one last question. do you have a favorite food here? ms. fiorina: this is all i have had. so so far, it is iowa: on a stick -- iowa corn on a stick.
12:45 pm
you won the bet. >> i did. ms. fiorina: good job. thank you.
12:46 pm
>> jeb bush came here on friday and he said or did [indiscernible] president, would you support the same concept to have enough people on board? ms. fiorina: sure. people know the answers to these concepts.
12:47 pm
