Conversations with Conservatives February 12, 2015: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0YyR4ivQ9s

House Members Participating:

Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-4), Curt Clawson (FL-19), Raul Labrador (ID-1), Tim Huelskamp (KS-1), Thomas Massie (KY-4), Mark Walker (NC-6), Jim Jordan (OH-4), Jeff Duncan (SC-3), Mick Mulvaney (SC-5).

Highlights:

Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-4): “You have to define your enemy before you can defeat your enemy” on president’s proposals

Letting this go is a precedent for more bad behavior. My constituents don’t feel protected.

Rep. Curt Clawson (FL-19): AUMF – I would have to see a big coalition with big effort from others so we don’t have to bear more than we should.

Reporter: if DHS shutdown, will there be election impact? wasn’t last time. : people like officials who don’t flip.

I’m not afraid of sticking to principles and to my campaign promises.

Rep. Raul Labrador (ID-1): “media going apoplectic about Boehner inviting Bibi w/o talking 2 Obama, yet they dont care about executive amnesty

“The DHS obstruction is coming from Senate democrats.”

On funding lapse vs. short term ext. of DHS – senate needs to allow debate happen. Sen. Dems are the obstructionists

Ask Sen. Dems why they are putting 5mil illegal immigrants before the Constitution & those who are doing it legally.

AUMF – says he needs to first see that there is an existential threat.

. what can you do if leadership puts a clean bill on the floor? We have to fight now, even if we lose.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (KS-1): Don’t let senate rules trump the Constitution.

Rep. Thomas Massie (KY-4): Bipartisan reform possible in criminal justice – fixing sentencing, addressing over incarceration. Pres would sign.

Rep. Jim Jordan (OH-4): DHS: said he didn’t have authority. Dems don’t need to change from that position to pass DHS funding

Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC-3): Any AUMF should not micromanage war from DC.

Rep. Mick Mulvaney (SC-5): “If the pres can’t pass , something so simple, then he can kiss the next two years goodbye.”

Senate should work! Instead of just signing their name. They should get up and speak.

AUMF – likes that there is some time table. Hours and hours of debate is very important. A vote is necessary.

We are where leadership thought we would be when we passed cromnibus.
