tv KPIX 5 News CBS January 20, 2015 7:30pm-8:01pm PST
the president's own state department has said keystone's construction could support thousands of jobs and pump billions into our economy and do it with minimal environmental impact. we worked with democrats to pass this bill through the house. we're doing the same now in the senate. president obama will soon have a decision to make: will he sign the bill or block good american jobs? there's a lot we can achieve if we work together. let's tear down trade barriers in places like europe and the pacific. let's sell more of what we make and grow in america over there so we can boost manufacturing, wages and jobs right here at home. let's simplify america's outdated and loophole-ridden tax
code. republicans think tax filing should be easier for you, not just the well-connected. so let's iron out loopholes to lower rates and create jobs, not pay for more government spending. the president has already expressed some support for these kinds of ideas. we're calling on him now to cooperate to pass them. you'll see a lot of serious workf in this new congress. some of it will occur where i stand tonight, in the armed services committee room. this is where i'll join committee colleagues-- republicans and democrats-- to discuss ways to support our exceptional military and its mission. this is where we'll debate strategies to confront terrorism and the threats posed by al qaeda, isil and those radicalized by them.
we know threats like these can't just be wished away. we've been reminded of terrorism's reach both at home and abroad-- most recently in france and nigeria, but also in places like canada and australia. our hearts go out to all the innocent victims of terrorism and their loved ones. we can only imagine the depth of their grief. for two decades, i've proudly worn our nation's uniform-- today, as a lieutenant colonel in the iowa army national guard. while deployed overseas with some of america's finest men and women, i've seen just how dangerous these kinds of threats can be. the forces of violence and oppression don't care about the innocent. we need a comprehensive plan to defeat them.
we must also honor america's veterans. these men and women have sacrificed so much in defense of our freedoms and our way of life. they deserve nothing less than the benefits they were promised and a quality of care we can all all be proud of. these are important issues the new congress plans to address. we'll also keep fighting to repeal and replace a health care law that's hurt so many hardworking families. we'll work to correct executive over-reach. we'll propose ideas that aim to cut wasteful spending and balance the budget with meaningful reforms, not higher taxes like the president has proposed. we'll advance solutions to prevent the kind of cyberattacks we've seen recently. we'll work to confront iran's nuclear ambitions.
and we'll defend life, because protecting our most vulnerable is an important measure of any society. congress is back to work on your behalf, ready to make washington focus on your concerns again. we know america faces big challenges, but history has shown there's nothing our nation and our people can't accomplish. just look at my parents and grandparents. they had very little to call their own except the sweat on their brow and the dirt on their hands. but they worked, they sacrificed, and they dreamed big dreams for their children and grandchildren. and because they did, an ordinary iowan like me has had some truly extraordinary opportunities because they showed me that you don't need to come from wealth or privilege to
make a difference. you just need the freedom to dream big and a whole lot of hard work. the new republican congress you elected is working to make washington understand that, too. and with a little cooperation from the president, we can get washington working again. thank you for allowing me to speak with you tonight. may god bless this great country of ours, the brave a of ours, the brave americans serving in uniform on our behalf, and you, the hardworking men and women who make the united states of america the greatest nation the world has ever known. >> pelley: joni ernst the new senator from the state of iowa, a soldier a mom a woman who rides a harley, and teaches sunday school. bob schieffer the republicans and the president both speaking to the aspirations of the middle
class tonight. >> schieffer: well, i thought it was interesting that the republicans would pick senator ernst, because republicans know they've got a problem. they don't want people tong they're just a bunch of old white guys. and here you had this very articulate woman smart-- as you say, has all this resume. but they're trying to send a signal, too. and i thought her speech was very much-- it was really not very political. she made some very nice points, but i thought she strike a very nice tone. >> pelley: thank you bob very much. there will be more about the state of the union on your late local news, on this cbs station first thing tomorrow, of course, on "cbs this morning." vice president joe biden will be a guest. and there's more coverage our 24-hour digital news network cbs"n." it's available on all devices on cbsnews.com. with thanks to the jones day law firm for this view of the capitol, i'm scott pelley, and i'll see you tomorrow on the cbs
