May 7, 2014 Speeches
One of the biggest complaints I hear is the practice of forcing taxpayers to underwrite the losses and risks of politically well-connected companies.

In August of 2010, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs warned that the greatest threat to our national security was our national debt. That was $4 trillion of debt ago.

This wanton act caused the loss of a quarter-million acres of the most productive farmland in America, it threw thousands of families into unemployment, and it devastated this region. Now, a natural drought has compounded the regulatory drought.
