tv Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN June 28, 2016 6:00am-7:01am EDT
think the threat is, you get the same kind of rhetoric that the germans and the british and the french were talking about in 1950 when there was a cold war, so the united states, i think, find itself as a global power, not focused only on an east/west strategy, which is dominated our thinking for the last 70 years or so, but also having to think about new realities in our own hemisphere and also the rise of the african cotton that is a reality that is going to be upon us before you think, and so, we have to be engaged as a global power, and we cannot withdraw. it is in our own national interests, not because we are magnanimous and want to do good things all over the world, but it is in our own national interest to be able to do that, and it is our inheritance, really, from the 20th century, but it is a different world, and we have to organize ourselves differently. we have to be more agile. i have talked about the national
security council, and in a sense that we need a 24-hour security council. we cannot afford to go to sleep, because the next day, you go to work, and you are dealing with everything that happened there he was six or seven hours you caught up on your sleep, so this is a different world. it is a different century. the institutions that were organized for the cold war are having a difficult time reacting with the speed and meeting the variety of the challenges that
are economic, energy. it is climate, military, and the state actors and the whole bit, so -- i think we need to figure out how to do this. it is easier dealing with regions than single countries. you can understand the world a lot better when you think regionally. i believe with the unified command that we have, which is another inheritance from the 20th century, that we could have regional strategies with regional representation by the whole of government and the military foreign-based and in different regions, and i think you can engage much more successfully there. it is a very serious issue, and i hope the summit deals with it.
farkas: thank you very much free have gone very proactively beyond nato into the regional combat and commands. i think this is been a very engaging discussion. the report is proactive. we are trying to keep it spicy. let's go on the road and do more of it. you gentlemen think of doing more tb and op-ed -- more tv and op-eds, and i want to thank you for your service, and hopefully we can keep you talking about all of these issues, so please join me in a round of applause. [applause]
ohio. it is good to be in the home state of my great friend and your great senator sherrod brown. and it is going -- it is good to be in the states. now i'm here today because i'm with her. we are all here today because we are with her. and we are going to work our hearts out to make hillary clinton the next president of the united states. i'm ready, are you ready for this see a co-- for this?
we are here with someone who gets up every single day and whites for us. someone who has spent her whole life fighting for children, spent her life fighting for women, spent her life fighting for families, fighting for health care, fighting for human rights, fighting for a level playing field. we are here to fight side by side with hillary clinton. so today i want to talk about values. he ended up as a maintenance man and after his heart attack his -- after his heart attack my mom answered phones at sears to keep our family above water. 288 combat missions in vietnam. and i learn from him that we honor our promises to our service members and veterans. after my middle brother got out of the air force, he got a good
today all he has left his social security. we honor hard-working people by protecting and expanding social security. i always wanted to be a teacher. it opened $1 million for me. i learned america's public schools can build opportunity for all of our kids. i'm the daughter of a maintenance man. and hillary clinton is the granddaughter of a factory worker who is going to make it all the way to the white house. we believe in that, america. but we are worried, worried those opportunities are slipping
away. a lot of america is worried and angry. angry that too many times washington works for those at the top and leaves everyone else behind. the washington that let's join -- that let's giant oil companies doesn't down millions of dollars in tax subsidy. that washington gives corporation fat tax breaks for ceo bonuses but won't raise the
minimum wage, that washington pushes corporate interest and trade deals that won't create good jobs here in america. angry that friends and neighbors lost their jobs and their homes when wall street wrecked our economy. angry that instead of sending people to jail, washington gave bankers a bailout. now your tensions -- that is not right. we are here to change it. now donald trump says he will make america great again. it is right in the front of his
goofy hat. you want to see goofy? look at him in that hat. when donald says great, i ask great for who? for millions of kids struggling to pay for an education? for millions of seniors surviving on social security. when donald trump says he will make america great, he says make it even greater for rich guys just like donald trump.
that is who donald trump is. he will crush you into the dirt to get whatever he wants, that is who he is. just look at the evidence. billions of dollars have been sucked out of your retirement account because he says it might bring more rich people to his new golf course. he cheered on students desperate enough to sign up for his faith university -- for his fake
hillary! >> here's what it boils down to, hillary has brains, has guts, has thick skin and steady hands, but most of all she has a good heart. that is what america needs and that is why i'm with her. are you with her? [applause] [cheering] this election is about values. donald versus hillary. [laughter] donald trump believes in defrauding students to benefit himself.
believes every student should be able to get in education without getting crushed by debt. that means refinancing student loans. donald trump, he believes sad little wall street bankers need to be free to defraud anyone they want. hillary clinton believes we need strong rules to prevent another financial crisis. hillary fights for us. donald trump wants to abolish the minimum wage. hillary clinton believes no one should work full time and live in poverty. that means raising the minimum wage. hillary fights for us.
[applause] you know, i could do this all day. one more. calls muslims, terrorists, latinos, rapists and criminals. racism andieves bigotry have no place in our country. we will fight for hillary clinton. fight for us. please join me in welcoming the -- welcoming to the stage hillary clinton. [applause]
hillary clinton: thank you cincinnati. i especially want to thank all the people outside who couldn't get in. thank you for coming in today. i am so delighted to be here with my friend and a great leader, senator elizabeth warren . you just saw why she is considered so terrific, so formidable, because she tells it
like it is. i am very grateful for that introduction. more importantly i want to thank her for fighting every single day for families like hers, families like yours. and millions of hard-working americans that deserve to have more folks on their side. elizabeth and i came of age around the same time. as you heard her talking about her parent, her brothers, we believed in the american dream.
my dad was a small businessman. he got off every single day. lots of times my mother and my brother and i, they print fabrics and a long warehouse with a long table. it was dark and not very pleasant. it was decent honest work. that's what you do in america, that is the basic argan. -- basic bargain. we need to make sure the bargain is alive and well. [applause] elizabeth is leading the fight to liberate millions of americans from the burden of
student debt, and to make sure washington never again profits off of our students. she and i agree the federal government should not be making money off of sending our young people to college to get an education. and no one works harder to make sure wall street never wrecks mainstreet again. she has come up with a lot of great ideas but here is one that has already made a difference. it is called the consumer financial protection bureau. it has been around for a few years under the leadership of a great leader from ohio, who is
leading the charge. it has only been around a few years. but it has returned $10.8 billion to 25 million americans who have been hurt i illegal financial practices. that is what standing up and fighting to write -- to write right economic wrongs looks like. and i must say i do just love to see how she gets under donald trump's skin as elizabeth made clear, donald trump approved every day he is not in it for the american people.
elizabeth reminds us of that. it is really important that voters in ohio understand this. temperamentally unfit and unqualified to be president of the united states. [applause] some of the best tv since elizabeth came to the senate is actually on c-span. if you ever see her press her bank executive or regulator for
answers, refusing to let them off the hook, she is speaking for every frustrated american. she is speaking for all of us. and we thank her for that. [applause] clinton: i am thrilled elizabeth can be here with me in this glorious you the full building that has been rehabbed and put to new use as a museum. we want to make the point together, that we must have an economy that works for everyone again, not just those at the top. not just the rich or the well connected, everybody. one might ask, yes that is what we believe, it sounds simple.
honestly it shouldn't be complicated, but there are too many politicians and corporations that don't agree. they don't even seem to get it. but you do and we do. and for the past more than a year i have been traveling across our country meeting people who have told me their wages haven't budged, even though they see executives who give themselves big bonuses.
and do ask yourself wait a minute, why did the richest americans and they just corporations get away -- richest americans and biggest corporations get away? it's a good question, it doesn't make any sense, doesn't make moral sense, economic sense, historic sense. when more tax breaks are given to hedge fund billionaires instead of making investment and manufacturing clean energy that will actually create more jobs. it doesn't make sense when corporations -- their profits overseas or send them to influential shareholders, instead of making long-term investments in raising wages, training, and research. or when governors and legislatures use every trick in the book to weaken unions and make it harder for americans to organize themselves for better
wages and benefits. you know what i'm talking about. you have heard of right to work laws. they are wrong for workers and wrong for america. none of this is right, my friends. but this election is a chance for us to make it right for the future. for our kids and grandkids. let's make it right. let's make it right for hard-working americans like -- ownshall in cleveland who a small trucking company. it is a nonstop struggle to compete against the bigger guys. if we make sure small businesses
gets the right support, we can give more people the chance to succeed under that american basic bargain. let's make it right for young people. like erika. she dreamed her whole life of going to ohio university in athens. but the housing crash wiped out her parents' savings and their small business. to get a college degree at a public university, erica wound up $100,000 in debt. we cannot let this student debt crisis continue. we have to give families and students really. do you know what erica is doing now question mark -- to know
what erica is doing now? america is volunteering for our campaign and working to elect democrats across ohio. [applause] stan is volunteering with us to because he, like so many people across ohio and across the country, know that we are fighting for a better future. i got into this race because i wanted to even the odds for people who have the odds stacked against them. this is not a time for half measures. to build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top, we have to go big and bold. [applause]
ms. clinton: we need to take that frustration, the fear, the anxiety, and yes, the anger, and after we have vented it, we need to work together to achieve the kind of changes that will give everybody in this country of better shot. let's set five ambitious goals for our economy. that breakthrough the dysfunction in washington and make the biggest investment in good-paying jobs since world war ii. [applause] weclinton: let's do what used to do to invest in infrastructure like president eisenhower did with the interstate highway system. [applause] that is when republicans used to believe in building america and putting americans to work. that is what we are going to do again. [applause]
let's set the goal of making college debt-free for everyone, like erica. [applause] ms. clinton: and let's provide debt relief, let's provide debt relief as soon as we can, as soon as we start to work, elizabeth. we will take the day off for the inauguration and then the senate and white house and congress will get to work. [applause] ms. clinton: now, we have more work to do, so let's set the goal of rewriting the rules so more companies share profits with their employees, not just their executives. [applause] ms. clinton: instead of shipping profits and jobs overseas, we
have the greatest country and economy in the world, let's start acting like it and make it clear that companies have to be part of that greatness. [applause] ms. clinton: and let's set the goal of making sure wall street and the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes. now, there are a couple of ways to do this, i have been proposing a few of them. "buffetg called the buffet.fter warren no millionaire should pay a lower tax rate than someone working for them, like a
secretary. [applause] ms. clinton: the people who have profited the most, even since the great recession, are people who now need to give back. this country has given so much to all of us and everybody should share the burden. i have made a pledge. i will not raise taxes on the middle class, but we are going to raise taxes on corporations and the wealthy. [applause] ms. clinton: and don't you think it is about time that we put american families first? we are not living in the 1950's or 1960's anymore. we have to catch up to how
americans actually live and work in the 21st century. i have met so many stressed-out young parents. i have met so many stressed-out middle-aged and older folks, they are trying to balance what should be the joy of their lives, like our new grandson is for us and our granddaughter. [applause] ms. clinton: i remember -- i was talking to elizabeth on the phone when she was visiting her family, her grandchildren, and we talked about all this important stuff and what we have to do it she said, i have to go because i need to buy my granddaughter some sparkly shoes. [laughter] ms. clinton: there is no greater joy but to see young parents struggling so hard, and to see older people taking care of their parents, we have work to do. we should not make it so difficult to do your job at home and to do the job that puts food on the table and a roof over your head. let me say a word about rewriting the rules. there are a lot of businesses thriving right here in ohio who see their employees the right
way. they see them as assets to invest in, not costs to cut. [applause] ms. clinton: but unfortunately, there are too many who take the opposite view and their behavior contributes to stagnant wages and lower economic growth. as president, i will work to reward companies that share profits with their employees, on top of paying a good wage. if they can do it for their executives, they sure can do it for their workers. [applause] and we will encourage companies to invest in worker training and to build high-quality apprenticeship programs where you earn while you learn, and we will strengthen unions, because they are the bedrock of a strong middle class in america. [applause]
ms. clinton: unions helped bring back the auto industry in ohio and they will help bring back america from coast to coast. so here is our message. [applause] ms. clinton: here is our message to every corporate boardroom. do the right thing, by your employees and your country, and we will stand by you. but cheat your employees, exploit your customers, pollute our environment, or rip off taxpayers, and we will hold you accountable. [applause]
ms. clinton: because when companies take taxpayer dollars if one hand and give out pink slips with the other and ship hundreds of jobs overseas, we are going to make them pay back those tax benefits and we are to take that money and reinvest it in workers and communities and we are going to slap an exit tax on companies that move their companies overseas to avoid paying their fair share of taxes. [applause] ms. clinton: we will defend american jobs and american workers by saying no to bad trade deals like the transpacific partnership and unfair trade practices like when china dumps cheap steel in our markets or uses weak rules of origin to undercut our carmakers.
i am going to appoint a trade prosecutor who will report to the president so we are going to end the abuse of our markets, our workers, our people. [applause] and you know what, we are going to compete and win in the global economy. by not letting anybody taking -- take advantage of our workers, not china, not wall street, not anyone. we are going to defend the rules to rein in wall street put after the crash. fines should cut into executives bonuses. [applause] ms. clinton: and if laws are violated individuals, not just corporations, should be held accountable. [applause]
ms. clinton: and i will veto, i will veto any effort to weaken protections for consumers. while we're at it, we are going to finally make wall street, big corporations, and the super wealthy do more than what is fair in paying taxes, but what is right. we can use that money, to make these big, bold investments that help us build a strong economy. it is good not just for families and workers, it is good for companies. the more money you have in your pocket that you can spend, the better that is for the economy. the way things are right now, people are afraid and are holding back. we have to liberate the american consumer by protecting the american worker.
we are going to make more things in america. weare going to make sure have the most competitive auto and auto parts industry in the world. [applause] ms. clinton: and when we invest in infrastructure, we are not just going to invest in roads and bridges and tunnels and ports and transit and water systems. we are going to connect every home to high-speed broadband so they can get into the global marketplace. [applause] ms. clinton: and we are going to fight climate change by making america the clean energy superpower of the 21st century. [applause] ms. clinton: and i want to
compliment your mayor who is here, your state representative, alicia, cincinnati is already one of the biggest cities in the country to run 100% on clean energies. congratulations. [applause] ms. clinton: and i will tell you what, mayor, i hope you don't mind me saying that if you can do it in cincinnati, you can do it anywhere, that is what we need in america. [applause] ms. clinton: we are going to raise the national minimum wage, workers deserve better. poverty hour is a wage. families deserve real support like quality affordable childcare, paid family leave, and equal pay for women. [applause] [cheers]
ms. clinton: now, i know when i talk about these things, donald trump says, i am playing the woman card. -- ifi will tell you what families is meying the woman card, deal in! [applause] [cheers] [applause] [cheers] audience: hillary, hillary, hillary. hillary clinton: we have to go after and end the political dysfunction that is holding our country and economy back. let's overturn citizens united and get unaccountable money out of politics. [applause]
[cheers] ms. clinton: let's shut off the revolving door in washington and make sure the foxes are not guarding the hen house. applause]d clinton: and let's learn how to listen to each other and work together again. i am determined to break through the deadlock and get things done for working families. i know republicans and democrats can work together. i know because i have done it. i created the children's health insurance network with republicans and democrats. kids.it insures 8 million i worked with republicans and democrats to bring jobs back to upstate new york and help new york rebuild and heal after 9/11.
i probably served as secretary not justand i did represented democrats, i represented all americans. he could you know what? we are all on the same team. and likee we started it. there is no limit to what we can achieve if we do. now, i confess, i confess, it is true, i can be a little wonky. but i have an old-fashioned idea. if you're running for president, you should say what you want to do and how you will get it done. [applause] [cheers] ms. clinton: so now, now that you have heard some of my plans for the economy, ask yourself, what are donald trump's plans? best i can tell is he has no credible strategy for creating jobs and maybe we should not
expect better from someone whose most famous words are "you're fired." booing] clinton: he railed against other countries. trump's own products are made in countries that are not named america. trump's suits were made in mexico. he could've had them made in brooklyn, ohio. trump's furniture is made in turkey, instead of cleveland. trump's bar ware is made in slovenia instead of toledo. how does that fit into his talk about america first? that is just the start. this is a man who plays coy with white supremacists and mocks people with disabilities, who talks about banning an entire
religion from entering our country, who advocates of getting rid of gun free zones in schools, letting more countries have nuclear weapons, defaulting on national debt, turning back the clock on marriage equality. and just like elizabeth, i can go on and on. this is someone whose reaction to the horrific mass shooting in orlando was to publicly congratulate himself. and on friday, when britain voted to leave the european golf, he crowed from his disruptiont the creating higher
profits for his golf course, even though within 24 hours, americans lost $100 billion from our 401(k)s. imagine donald trump sitting in the oval office the next time america faces a crisis. audience: no! hillary clinton: imagine him being in charge when your jobs and savings are at stake. imagine him trying to figure out what to do in case of an emergency. so it is no wonder, is it? that risk analysts listed a donald trump presidency as one of the top threats facing the global economy, ahead of terrorism.
ms. clinton: well, we are not going to let donald trump bankrupt america the way he bankrupted his casinos. [cheers] [applause] ms. clinton: we need to write a new chapter in the american dream and it cannot be chapter 11. [cheers] [applause] ms. clinton: if you believe donald trump is wrong for america and our best days are ahead of us, please, join us in this campaign. we are stronger together, we are stronger when we grow together, when we lift each other up, when our economy is working for everyone, not just those at the top. let's get to work, ohio. let's knock on doors and register voters. let's send alicia reed back to columbus. let's get strong progressive leaders like senator warren in washington. let's take our country in the right direction with confidence and optimism.
that is what we can do together. thank you, ohio. god bless you.
