Sep 13 2017

I'm thinking, Boy, what do I do with this?' . But I'm thinking, When in Rome,' so I take and bite, and, lo and behold, it's ice cream.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Trump Presidency

The president comes out right away and says, Listen, this is not a tax cut for the rich. I'm not going to get a tax cut, nor any of the wealthy, super one-percenters will get any tax cuts.feedback

No new debt, anything that shows me it's going to add debt to our nation. I've got 10 grandchildren. I'm not going to do that to them.feedback

Sep 08 2017 - American politics

I think the president has tried everything going down the other path – hasn't worked that well. So why not try to find the path? I think hopefully it will give Democrats a reason to try to work a little bit harder and try to find common ground on the pathway.feedback

I told Bernie this: Let's look at the tax code. Look at Sweden and Denmark – look at their tax code. You can't just pick what you like and think everything stays the same. How are you going to pay for it? How do people get access to it? How much regulation? Let's find out.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Trumpcare

We didn't grow up with this, it was not out there. The legal pharmaceutical manufacturers were not producing this product. This came of age in the Eighties, and when it came of age it became a business model. I understand there was some good intentions and some need of really some severe cases we have like cancer and end of life comfort. This thing became a business. And it has been exploited to the extent that we have never seen before.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Trumpcare

In my state, we're the number one. We're ground zero. We have more people that have been affected through legal drugs, opioid addiction, than any other form that we've ever had hit our state.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Trump Presidency

I told him infrastructure and tax reform should have been the first thing out of the box.feedback

The question for West Virginians is, If you knew, or you thought that there was obstruction of justice, why didn't you act on it?' . What were his concerns and if there were deeper concerns, why wasn't anything done at that time?feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Twitter

West Virginia is very interested in this hearing that we're having today.feedback

I completely disagree with his statement.feedback

May 07 2017 - Democratic Party

I just want to work and sit down and try to get something done, but no one's asked us. Our congressional delegation says, don't worry, the Senate will fix it.' And no one has asked any Democrat. And I am the most centrist.feedback

May 07 2017

Every dynamic in every demography of my state gets absolutely slammed with this piece of legislation.feedback

May 04 2017 - American politics

I can't say [the Republican bill] is dead on arrival.feedback

May 04 2017 - Obamacare

But they don't have 60 votes, so it's dead on arrival.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - Republican Party

Consol is probably one of the premier coal companies we've ever had in West Virginia and I'm very appreciative of all they've done, all the good jobs they've provided. But this bill, the way it's been configured, the way it's been worked, is not a place for that right now because they still have a viable company, an ongoing company. These are people who were left behind, their companies went bankrupt, they left the system. There's no way to get any type of payment.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - Republican Party

To do that at this time would not be advised at all. I think the Senate is pretty much resolved in where we are and I think that's been transmitted to the House pretty clearly.feedback

Apr 08 2017

We'd like to find a pathway forward. Well, we had the opportunity this time.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - SCOTUS

Apr 01 2017

It's awful what they're doing to the working man. What they're doing to union workers, what they're doing to wages, what they're doing to pensions.feedback

Apr 01 2017 - Wall Street

He's been portrayed as not being for the working person. The Democrats became so politically correct and so perfect. The people in there, they grew up knowing that the Democratic Party would be there ensuring their jobs. And now it's the party they believe is preventing them from working. For me to be a Republican, I would have to put the bottom line before I would a human being. How long did it take them to bail out Wall Street? It took 'em hours. Can't you take care of the people who basically made the country? I really appreciate you coming here.feedback

Apr 01 2017

The bottom line is, Bernie never had a glove laid on him. If they knew that Bernie Sanders would shut down every coal plant, every coal mine – because he's said it – it'd have been a complete different primary outcome. But Hillary was so detested. Bernie would not have won West Virginia, knowing West Virginia the way I know it. He'd have got maybe 40 percent or so.feedback

Apr 01 2017

He said, You don't think I was Donald Trump's first choice? I probably got chosen to come up here because they thought I would have a better chance of getting 60. If you all fight and stop me, I guarantee that what comes behind is going to be a lot different than I am.feedback

Apr 01 2017

I can't explain it. You know what? I think it was just so tainted by Washington politics.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Supreme Court

I hold no illusions that I will agree with every decision Judge Gorsuch may issue in the future, but I have not found any reasons why this jurist should not be a Supreme Court justice.feedback

Mar 28 2017

We need to strike a balance between the environment and the economy. The clean power plan never achieved that balance. Rolling back this regulation is a positive step towards preventing further job loss, increases to consumer energy bills, and more damage to our economy. We must stop ignoring the damage these regulations caused our energy sector, our economy and our way of life in West Virginia.feedback

Mar 23 2017

We should have an up-or-down vote.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - SCOTUS

I want to get a working court, okay? What they did to Merrick Garland was wrong. I don't want to do the same. Two wrongs don't make a right. If Gorsuch is the right person or not, I can't say that as of yet. Is there 60 votes as of yet, I don't think, I don't see it. Can it happen? Anything can happen.feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Affordable Care Act

I got an older population, I got a poorer population, and I got an opiate issue we need to clean up. And now, talk about insult to injury. You've got to have a moral compass inside of you. You can't do that. Look at the elderly, look at the poor, look at the sick. How can you look at yourself and say, Okay, I'll help the person who needs help the least, the wealthiest people, with more tax cuts, because I'm going to be taking away from the elderly population?feedback

Mar 06 2017

If you want to go ahead and beat me up in a primary then go ahead. All it does is take the resources from the general.feedback

Mar 05 2017

In some ways it has been a health care education process for everyone. Even for people here.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

I voted for him because I did trust him, absolutely. And I've said, point blank, when it came out about the Mike Flynn investigation, I called Jeff and said, Jeff, you should recuse yourself – get the heck out of the way!' And he said he would take the matter into consideration. And I said, you better do more than take it under consideration – you should do it.feedback

Feb 09 2017

I think that basically gives people comfort that didn't have comfort.feedback

Feb 08 2017

If that's what you want, God bless you then go out and earn it. Start basically primary-ing everybody. That beats them up so bad that they can't get through a general election when they should be able to get through a general election.feedback

Feb 01 2017

Betsy DeVos has never attended or worked in a public school. The needs facing rural schools in West Virginia are unique, and her lack of exposure to public education is very concerning for me.feedback

Feb 01 2017

I didn't come here to say, Oh my goodness, if I don't do this, I might not get re-elected.feedback

Feb 01 2017 - Supreme Court

I think it should be 60 votes for our Supreme Court. I think at the highest court of the land it should be where we're coming together as Americans, not continue to divide us. And with that being said, let's give the man a chance. Talk to him.feedback

Jan 19 2017

No one gave us a manual when we became governor. I have no doubt that Rick is not only going to be able to do the job; he's going to excel in the job.feedback

Jan 04 2017 - Affordable Care Act

Now, a lot of the people didn't know, and they really still don't know, how they got health care called the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. But I will assure you one thing, they'll know who did it and got rid of it for them. If I break it, we gotta fix it.feedback

Dec 09 2016

He won every coal area in America.feedback

Dec 09 2016

You've got to stand for something or surely to God you'll stand for nothing.feedback

Dec 08 2016

They gave us a bill and said 'take it or leave it.feedback

Dec 06 2016 - Coal mining

Over two years ago, we promised the retired coal miners of America – we promised them and most of their families – and these are a lot of widows now – and we promise them that they would have their health care benefits, which were guaranteed to them, and their pensions.feedback

Nov 18 2016

We're not coming here to block things.feedback

Nov 17 2016

People have to know we care about them.feedback

Nov 11 2016

I'd probably line up more with Donald Trump's economic package. I sure don't adhere to his social rhetoric.feedback

Feb 23 2016

Must break its cozy relationship with the pharmaceutical industry.feedback

Jan 06 2016

Like all law-abiding Americans and gun owners, I want to prevent future incidents of gun violence and keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill, but legislation and consensus is the correct approach.feedback

Dec 11 2014

I think we ought to stay right here and work through a total tax reform, we've been talking about it for quite some time. It's just time to do it. So, I cannot probably support or give a vote for this for that reason.feedback
