Highlights:

Radical Socialist Policies: “It is so obvious that these Democrat presidential candidates have no clue what capital formation is about. There’s no reality in anything they’re saying. Their socialized medicine proposal would cost, according to Bernie Sanders, $4 trillion a year. To put that in perspective, we only collect $2.2 trillion in income taxes annually. The Green New Deal, which they stopped talking about all of a sudden, would cost $9 trillion a year. The entire adjusted gross income of America – not the tax but the total earnings – is about $9 trillion.”

Show Trial: “This is the first time in U.S. history that the Speaker of the House of Representatives who broached the impeachment issue will not call for a formal inquiry. This is a show trial. This is nothing but one side trying to drum up something to counter the president. There is nothing here that has risen to the level of impeachment. We all know that, and most people in America are going to realize that when they see how shallow the Democrats’ arguments are right now.”

Political Pipe Dream: “I trust the common sense of America. People know Washington is broken. This is just one more manifestation, where the Speaker of the House will not put USMCA on the table but will waste all of this time on a pipe dream that is nothing more than political partisanship.”
