3/4 of hobby lobby's 401k assets. they also import oddles of its products from china, one of the worst human dignity, unborn infant life and economic justice anywhere in the world. that? you respond to guest: you know that article came out actually after oral argument during the pendency of the supreme court case. was a really good response up.t that was written the point of the matter is that hobby lobby itself does not invest in any of those companies. the fact that they set up a very 401k planmployee where the employee is the one choose where they invest their own money for their retirement, that's a very different issue rather than itselfthat hobby lobby is investing in those companies which it doesn't. are think those two things very different. as far as the china claim, you know, i think it's very hard to any company in america today that doesn't have some china.n with they are a global economy. they provide a lot of goods and services to many different companies. you'd be hard-pressed to find any company that didn't .ave any tie to china the president of rock the vote talk

china, what is going on in the euro zone, and that anxiety is building up -- has continued this exciting that -- this anxiety that really never ended. if you look at the median real household income, in other words, half the households have gotten better, half have gotten worse. household income has not gone up when you control for inflation since 1999. we have two terms, or will have had two terms of democratic presidents since 1999, two terms of republican presidents since then. we have had democratic majorities in the house and republican majorities. some -- so no matter who is in charge, real median household incomes have not gone up. the people have this feeling that, well, the economy may have recovered, but my economy has not recovered. and that has sort of added a new degree of angst. all of this has led to populism. and whether it is the occupy wall street on the left and elizabeth one and bernie sanders -- warren and bernie sanders, or whether it is the tea party movement, donald trump on the right-hand side, this rise of populism has great intentions within each of th

[laughter] as a partisan. and then there is this question and i don't know -- i don't think the research has been done yet and roberto can correct me if i'm wrong here, in terms of this kind of millennial question. >> yes. >> the latino electorate is young and getting younger, and the question is how -- are they going

, the numbers of people brought into the near and middle-class in china and india and many other countries. a century ago this month, the battle of verdun was just beginning. the most excruciating chapter over hebrew -- of a horrific war that would cause 37 million casualties and kill one german and one frenchman out of every five. -- 75 years ago, to be precise, millions of refugees were streaming not into europe, but out of europe. seeking refuge from a confrontation with fascism that would climax in unprecedented savagery and the holocaust. 50 years ago, half of europe hidden behind the iron curtain. a quarter of a century ago, europe was witness to a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing that would rage for years. my friends, we cannot come to munich, to a security conference, and ignore the underlying message of this history. this moment is not as overwhelming as people think it is. we know what needs to be done. most importantly, we have the power to do it. the transatlantic community is not strong because we somehow have been exempt from tragedy or strife. we are strong beca

our shores. but right now, it's getting more expensive to do business in places like china. meanwhile, america is more productive. a few weeks ago, the ceo of master lock told me that it now makes business sense for him to bring jobs back home. today, for the first time in fifteen years, master lock's unionized plant in milwaukee is running at full capacity. so we have a huge opportunity, at this moment, to bring manufacturing back. but we have to seize it. tonight, my message to business leaders is simple -- ask yourselves what you can do to bring jobs back to your country, and your country will do everything we can to help you succeed. [applause] we should start with our tax code. right now, companies get tax breaks for moving jobs and profits overseas. meanwhile, companies that choose to stay in america get hit with one of the highest tax rates in the world. it makes no sense, and everyone knows it. so let's change it. first, if you're a business that wants to outsource jobs, you shouldn't get a tax deduction for doing it. that money should be used to cover moving expens

basically. we looked at china, brazil, and every other country in the developing world. we need to be careful sometimes when looking at iran and experts who worked on iran, worked on ran 24/7 the things that might seem peculiar to iran might be more general around the developing world. certainly, the irgc is more involved in the economy than it was five years ago, but it was involved in the economy in the 1990's. it is more of a general trend that a particular outcome of particular regulations. i will leave it at that. will talk about that later. >> terrific. that is a great start for us. there is some stuff we will want to come back and dig into. makes sense of iran for us. >> i will try to do that in the seven minutes. >> you might have a couple of minutes to spare. >> the rate i would describe -- the way i would describe transposition internally and externally as impasse. i think there's a domestic impasse and obviously an international impasse on the nuclear issue, but other issues as well. the domestic and past takes place i think at two levels. within the state institutions t

china. now how propost-rouse is that. as the president is trying to rack up more debt on the nation's credit card, at the same time, he's turning his back and running 20,000 more jobs out of this country. that's the record of this administration. that's what president obama has given us. you wonder why we've had over 8% up employment for almost every single month he's been president. we can't afford the obama economy. we need to reject this increase in the debt ceiling, stop spending money we don't have and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan. mr. levin: i yield three minutes to the gentleman from kentucky, mr. yarmuth. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for three minutes. mr. yarmuth: i thank my good friend. madam speaker, i understand that the republican majority will vote today against the president's request to raise the debt limit. to borrow a phrase from a former speaker of the house, can we please drop the pious baloney? less than six months ago, republicans voted for precisely what they are voting against

its means, borrowing more money from countries like china to fund its government, which simply means we'll have a debt crisis just like europe. we can't afford four more years like these last four years. we can't stand for that. the president is not giving us much of a second term agenda. he's not staying here are my abc's. he put out astelic 20-page brochure the other day, but you don't have to read it to know where we're headed. we know that he's promising a $2 trillion tax increase starting in january. of the 21 tax increases just in obama care, 12 of them hit middle income taxpayers. remember when he stayed he wouldn't have a middle income tax increase? well, there are 12 episodes, 12 examples where he failed to do that one. remember when he said he'd cut the deficit in half over four years. we've had trillion dollar deficits each and every year. remember when he said he'd bring people together to solve the country's biggest problems? this is the third president i've served with, it's the most partisan atmosphere i've ever seen. look, look at john casey. i learned a lot from that
