Bob Corker

2:22:34 to 2:22:50( Edit History Discussion )

Bob Corker: that money from thehe year 2012 to 2050? isn't the issue by itself strong enough. this is the mother and far of all earmarks. i have no understanding why anybody in this body would support legislation

2:22:50 to 2:23:05( Edit History Discussion )

Bob Corker: that prescribes trillions of dollars of spending. secondly, why would the senator from rhode island support a bill where 27% of the allocations that are worth trillions of dollars, why would he

Bob Corker

2:23:05 to 2:23:17( Edit History Discussion )

Bob Corker

2:23:40 to 2:24:03( Edit History Discussion )

Bob Corker: are going to be paying high are costs, legitimately, as a result of this bill? the last piece, and this is one that is very difficult for me to understand, why would the senator from rhode island, my

Bob Corker

2:24:03 to 2:24:16( Edit History Discussion )

Bob Corker: friend, would i love serving with, supportpo a bill that pays, instead of spending money here in our country on technology that lowers emissions, encourage them to spend billions in china that benefit

Bob Corker

2:24:16 to 2:24:29( Edit History Discussion )

Bob Corker: that economy when we have tremendous trade deficits today? so what i would say is, again, i want to say it over and over and over. i respect the authors of this bill. i agree withh the science.

Bob Corker

2:24:43 to 2:25:00( Edit History Discussion )
