We're going from computer to computer. Not a people who are suspected of being terrorists. Of every American -- going to a billion phone call today and from your phone records they can track your -- -- President Obama has done nothing to change the policies. Of the Bush Administration in the war on terrorism and I mean practically nothing. And you know why because they work. People like the governor who are I guess flippant about privacy. Flippant about the Fourth Amendment and flippant about the bill of rights they do an injustice to our soldiers are soldiers are -- their life on the line. For the -- Bryce I want. That to come to New Jersey and sit across from the widows and the orphans. And have that conversation the next attack that comes. The kills thousands of Americans as a result people going to be looking back on the people who have this intellectual. Debate. It's really I think kind of sad and cheap. That he would use that cloak of 9/11 9/11 victims and say. -- I'm the only one who cares about these victims. Did he cared about protecting this country. Maybe he wouldn't be in this gimme gimme gimme gimme all the money you have in Washington or don't have and he'd be a little more fiscally responsive. And know that the way we defend our country. To what we have enough money for national defense is not being frugal and not by saying gimme gimme gimme all the time. I find it interesting that senator Paul is saying accusing us. Of having gimme gimme gimme attitude towards federal spending when in fact. New Jersey is a donor state and we get 61 cents back in every dollar we sent to Washington interesting that. Kentucky. Gets a dollar 51. And every dollar they send to Washington. So if senator Paul wants to start looking at where he's gonna cut spending to four defense maybe he should start looking at cutting the pork barrel spending that he brings home to Kentucky. This is the king of fake and talking about they can really the question is. Where's the money gonna come from that the governor once gimme gimme gimme all this federal money but where's it gonna come from if he's not willing to cut anywhere. I am willing to cut so for him to accuse me of pork barrel spending. I'm probably the most fiscally conservative member of congress. If we can sit down. -- I'm inviting him for a beer anytime you would like to come down and sit down at them run run a quarter percentage. I'm running for reelection enters don't really halftime about the moment. You know I mean if I find myself down -- Washington. I'll certainly look him up but I don't suspect they'll be here any time soon I don't want to do here.
