Paul Wright: End outsourcing of our middle class jobs overseas

JOBS for AMERICANS--The Senate must end outsourcing of our middle class jobs overseas to other nations and the destruction of our once great economy. Who are we pleasing with this current policy? Let us reverse course and help American families and American young people with productive manufacturing jobs like we once had.

Richard Burr: I voted to extend unemployment three times; that's enough

When Marshall jabbed Burr for voting three times against extension of unemployment benefits, Burr fired back.

"I voted three times to pay for unemployment (benefits)," he said, explaining that the Senate had waived its pay-as-you-go policy to extend the benefits. "We're $13 trillion in debt. The answer is to stop spending. Americans are saying 'enough'. The answer is, let's stop spending."
