it to build a nuclear weapon or buy one. threats. real none of the other things we're going to talk about matter if we aren't safe. it istary component of critical. [applause] >> yes, i would like to ask a question. while you are in the senate, you missed more votes than anybody there republican or democrat over 8%. had toe last week which do with military spending that you weren't there at. know what you were -- >> i'm here in new hampshire talking to you. why.s i've been in the senate now for four years. i'm proud to serve the people of florida in the united states senate. some of the most rewarding constituent is service. people some to the office. thrubeen through a drive at mcdonalds. it is incredibly rewarding to be to help her.
i've had veteran issues with the va. my brother is one of them. we love doing that very much. i'm frustrated. i'm in washington, d.c. watching the problems that we just talked about. nothing is happening. 2014. the majority in still nothing happens. what i concluded is nothing is we puto change unless the right person in the white house. that's why i decided to run for president. to run for president is going to miss votes. why? because i'm here talking to voters. i'm not on vacation. i'm here talking to each of you. i hope we can be successful in the campaign to start to make a difference. the next time they take votes in half, it won't be show votes. it will be votes we can pass and a president that will sign it. sign things like the keystone pipeline, sign things like military. the [applause] ini have four children
middle school and high school. what will you do to put ofcation back in the hands parents and local government, give us more choice and free us parents, students, and teachers from common core? on my first day in office i will sign an order offering all u.s. and federal cease and assist from all work in implementing it. [applause] curriculumupport reform. i support curriculum reform. we did it in florida when i was the house. of we improved our curriculum at the state level. let me tell you why that's important. problem with the school curriculum or any of you have a problem, go see your and go through the principal and see your legislator. try going to the department of at the federal level. you won't find a person to talk to about it. a national school board. i don't need we need a federal level.he
[applause] i feel real strongly about that as a parent myself. is the flag? yeah. >> senator, i served in iraq. pleasure of having a dozen and a half iraqi foreign me onals working for translators and missions. who had theirple backgrounds checked and fully ted. they had no promise for getting out of the country if things went south. they did. now we see the sufficient fee gees and figuring out what are going to take what percentage of refugees that aren't vetted. would you support policies for put themselves for our servicemen go to the back line and unvetted personnel go to the front?
marco: i would. this gets around. they say the americans betrayed me. that reputation becomes embedded. it is bun of the things that they are using. putin is usingat is barack obama is an unreliable guy. a lot.s we were here two weeks. we are conducting operations. we are reliable. america isn't. he's making that argument to iraq. he's going to make the same egyptians, the saudis with and israelis. you are right about that. on the issue of refugees, let me say this, we've always accepted refugees in the country. we've accepted them from vietnam. community where people came from cuba. it's not that we don't want to them. in order to accept them, they have to be vetted. you can't pick up the phone and say do you know so and so? working thaten't
well among other things. it is not that we don't want to be able to donot it. it may not be possible to vet people and accept them because of that. the instance that people that have served alongside the men who riskedn uniform the live by being identified with us, it is wrong that people like that have been pushed to back of the line. [applause] i have to say i've heard you speak several times about fightingontrol and not it because the u.s. can't win the battle alone. china has recently introduced a groundbreaking program to limit carbon emissions with a cap and trade program. i'm wondering when you are you do to what will
match their commitment to climate change? >> marco: first of all, the chinese said in the year 2030, they are going to begin to do some stuff. see. they continue to emit more carbon than any other nation in the earth. point is the climate is always changing. there's never been a time when the climate was unchanged. the debate is what can we do about it? i have the people come forward. to pass this law. cap and trade or whatever it may be. law, how many inches of sea rise will the prevent? prevent any. only if other countries do the same thing. okay. so it won't be a measurable impact. i ask the economist what will it do to the economy? making it living in america more expensive, harder to hire harder to succeed in america.
they have deep economic cost, no benefit, how is that a good deal? i'm not going to support anything that hurts our economy and does nothing to help our environment. do i believe the issue is one that can be confronted over time? yes. american innovator is going to help solve this. i have no problem in leading the and wind andr forth.wables and so we're also going to lead the oil in natural gas. we are not going to hold ourselves back especially at a time when millions of americans struggling, stuck in low-paying jobs leaving them paycheck.o i'm not supporting any policies that are bad for our economy and our environment. [applause] this kind of thing. i have been following -- >> it is not that bad.
i have been following you. i noticed you are talking about, you know, you have children. young children. a lot of people here are veterans. what about our generation. the ones that count now. the ones that our votes are going to be going for. security ist social going to be taken away from. do? are you going to you are talking about changing education for the younger generation coming up. working paycheck to paycheck, barely making it working two jobs. we can't get ahead. we don't fall under the tax break and obamacare. cracks.w through the our generation now in the 30's and 40's that are suffering the most, how is the president -- can do asmething you a president? have a we're going to pro-family tax code. for working families, it is more than ever to raise children. we need to create government it easier formake
to createe sector jobs that pay more. that's not happening. rate is down to 5%. the millions of people that aren't looking for work anymore. two, the jobs that are being created don't pay enough. you can't live on them. need to make america the best place in the world to create jobs that pay for. holding that back? a lot of it is government policies that make it harder to make it morend expensive to hire people. it moree makes expensive and more expensive to pay them more. regulations, especially for small business, makes it more expensive to be in business. 35 years,rst time in you have more businesses start dying than starting. that's not good for job creation. don't allow companies to immediately expense their investment. in a small money business to grow it, i have to my taxes,oney back in
as opposed to getting it right at once. saysu have a tax cod that the more you invest, the more not only would they hire more, but pay people more. we can't be globally competitive with the most expensive business tax rate in the developed world. we have to make america the best place in the world for the private sector to succeed. the private sector will create jobs that pay more. my father was not a business owner. he owned a small grocery store for probably a second and a half. didn't go well. my father was largely an employee. an employee as a hotel. the reason why my father had a enough for him to support his family was someone riskedaccess to money that money to build an hotel. money to made enough take vacations. we need to get back to a place
incentivized to create more sources of employment that pay more. ensure the government isn't doing anything to make your life more expensive, by ridiculous orders that make your energy bill go up while your income is flat. the other thing is some of the better paying jobs are going to require more skills than some people have right now. i don't know your story. i would venture to guess if you working full time, you can't just drop everything and sit in the classroom for four years. can -- if we can make it easier and cheaper for you to acquire an additional skill hours -- couple of through two courses online that allow you to receive a you qualify for the new job that pays more. designed around that. that's what my policies are designed around. america the best place in the world and easier for you to skills the additional you need to qualify for the better paying jobs.
[applause] be the last question today. >> we'll get regina too. go ahead. >> thank you for coming. >> thank you for having me. >> my question is on the constitution. yes, sir. >> article five. there's a movement throughout this nation right now they have convention.ive do you approve that? disapprove it? if so, why. marco: if that's what citizens we should do it. this is my only point, make sure we know how it is going to turn out. if you open up the constitution, you are opening up the people the want to re-examine first amendment, people that want to re-examine the second tondment, people that want re-examine other things built in within the constitution. they can amend and re-examine
it. i'll be supportive. be aware the same groups that are trying to pass legislation same groups of people that are going to try to change the constitution. we're going to have to fight at that convention. [applause] >> the next president is going to appoint one or two more supreme court justices. be yourgoing to criteria for appointing them? criteria for justices, not just supreme court but at the appellate level are people that adhere to the constitution. that view the role of the appellate judge to apply not manipulate it or spin it to a policy conclusion they want. we have reached the point that justices ates -- least five on at the supreme court that believe their job is ways tocreative manipulate the constitution to reach a policy outcome they
favor. that's not the job of our justices. the job of our justices is to that constitution as strictly constructed by the founders and the amendments that follow it. the job of the appellate court is to apply the constitution, or manipulateit it. my number one criteria would be this, are a strict constitution pis of you understand the only the constitution is through a convention or amendment process, not the create the judicial decisions that expand the reach of the federal government and areas it never intended to reach. the document the gentleman was holding is a document of limitation. is a documenton that limits the power. powers.e the only if they are not outlined here, the federal government doesn't have the power. they belong to the state and communities. justices that understand
that more today than ever before. all right. to thank you. [applause] marco: i would stay longer. the only reason why i have to cut it short is i have to catch an airplane. private one. they don't wait for me. the good news is we're going to be back in the community. this.enjoyed again i'm going to stay for for a few more minutes to say hello person. i look forward to seeing all of you. thank you for coming. god bless you.
