Highlights From Senator Marshall’s Interview Include:
On Sec. Austin’s Comments About China:
“We need to see actions and not words. Those are pretty tall words from an administration that actually just cut the defense budget on the last budget deal that we just did.”
“These are world class leaders, by the way, Aishah. These are ruthless, cold blooded leaders that don’t care what we say.”
“What they’ve seen America do is run with our tail between our legs from Afghanistan, we’ve sat there and watched a Chinese spy balloon come across all of our homes. We’re allowing fentanyl to come into this country and kill 300 Americans every day. We don’t need to see words, we want to see actions.”
On President Biden’s Address Economy and Debt Ceiling ‘deal’:
“So this is the president of the Green Socialist Party. We don’t have a taxing problem, we have a spending problem in this nation. Joe Biden is the party of tax and spend.
“What we need is a strong economy. The biggest challenges back home are still inflation and a lack of people for the jobs we have. This legislation made both of those worse, we need to go back to fundamentals. He’s throwing fuel on this inflation fire.”
On the inflation impacts on Kansans:
“It’s still the cost of doing business. People are almost numb to this inflation issue, whether it’s the price of gas, groceries, the price of housing, but what they’re not numb to is a lack of people for the jobs that we have. So despite this good jobs number, we still have 7 million healthy American men between the ages of 25 and 45 that have never returned to work.”
“People need to follow the labor participation rate, which is still some 4% below what it was, say in 2010. We need those folks that can work, go back to work, that work brings dignity to a family. I think we all have this innate, something in our heart that says contributing to society is a good thing.”
