Retracts burns to help warm the house

CloseUp: Burns cut back to help warm the house



Adam: Welcome back to wrap up. Annie Koster has sent out four different Republican opponents in the last decade. The last time a Republic beat it was in a year that might be like this year. Robert Burns, the GOP candidate on CD-2, hopes that’s the case. He’s our guest in the studio this morning. Thank you for joining us. Robert: Thank you for having me. Adam: Let’s start with your opinions in front of the voters. You’re a businessman, you’ve got the elevator speech. In a minute, how do you convince a new Hampshire voter it’s time for a change? Robert: Most of her money comes from outside the country. I’ve been going to the FIRE CHIEF’S forums, they don’t appear in any of these forums. She’s really taking it in exchange for a guarantee that she’ll be brought in without having to do the work. Adam: I’ve argued that this is a win-win race for you, but are you stumbling to dry through Republican driving, just like Steve Negron has done for the last couple of laps? Robert: I don’t really see a lot of support. We got some from NRCC. When I originally came out of that race, she had roughly 20 points in the lead. We’ve reduced that to single digits at this point. We continue to see distress happen. In their own words – Democrat – Democrats have spent millions of dollars attacking me, mostly with lies. They have changed it. They lied to me that I would criminalize abortion. Now they’re beating me up on the most ridiculous thing, Social Security. I’ve made it clear that we’re not going to touch on Social Security. She says because I’m connected to Republicans who want to change Social Security, I want to change Social Security too! If I can take any democratic issue and apply it to it, I can say anything I want! Adam: What are some concrete actions the Republican Congress might take to try to de-inflate in 2023? Robert: Opening up more gasoline production in the US is not an immediate solution. There are no immediate solutions. We will be back to work on the KEYSTONE XL pipeline. Not an immediate solution, but things that should not be removed from the table. Adam: What about the government bailout? Robert: Don’t sit here and praise AOC, but that was a year ago, they were spending after some defense of the $400 they made for $113. People in government don’t care about spending. I bring a lot of diversity to the government. I don’t mean diversity by gender, race or gender, but I actually have a unique work background that no one else in our government has. I have a unique manufacturing experience that no one else has. My opponent is a lawyer and lobbyist in the pharmaceutical industry. Adam: How about CUTS for the — the Trump administration referred to as — Robert: That sounds great to me. I’ll have to search more into that. looks good. No costs especially when we don’t see results, 100%, we need to cut a lot of waste into our government. There is a lot of boldness and luxury in our government. We’ve seen this in public-private partnership programmes. We were very quick to send the money, and we weren’t keen on sending the money to the people who were stealing it. Adam: How about helping the home needs–home heating help. People rely on it here. Robert: We send our taxes to the federal government so they can send it back here, but they cut it. This makes no sense. Help in heating the house should be at the state level. Adam: Would you support the construction of new natural gas pipelines through your area to help lower home heating costs? Robert: It depends on what makes the most sense for a bank. I can think of reasons why it might not make sense, but that’s not something I’d take off the table. That wouldn’t be something I’d take off the table. Adam: To what extent we will be dependent on fossil fuels is still debated. Do you want a small scale reactor? Robert: Absolutely. The fossil fuel industry is once again accelerating against nuclear power. It is very safe. It does not produce much nuclear waste. Adam: What do you do with the leftovers? Robert: Take care of trash the same way we take care of it now. My understanding is that they produce a tiny amount that can be compared to conventional nuclear power plants. Adam: Regarding abortion, you said you would vote for life in Congress and you cited the Fourteenth Amendment as protecting fetal life at the federal level. What do you think of Republicans who say they are staunchly pro-Life but, in the wake of Dobbs’ decision, will not vote for Life once they arrive in Washington. Robert: You talked about the Joe Manchin bill in the Senate. It is a logical solution. It’s an abortion with restrictions, which most Americans agree with, unlike my opponent who wants a 40-week, government-paid abortion. To continue with this, I would approach women’s health as a political football away from the planned family. These cancer screenings should be available to all men, women, and people. They should be provided at a very low cost, such as five dollars per check. Let’s take all of this away from Planned Parenthood and put healthcare where we have to provide preventative healthcare and get cancer in the early stages so that we can treat it and it will be more cost-effective. Adam: The Republicans are promising to investigate Biden if they bring Congress back. Who should be investigated first, and why? Robert: I think we should investigate Pfizer. She told the FDA that Moderna’s reason was to go back and continue their studies because they didn’t have enough minorities. Pfizer wasn’t held to the same standards as modernity – it was modern. I want to investigate Anthony Fauci and Dr. Gottlieb. Adam: Any other specific Biden administration officials you might want to bring before Congress? Robert: I would like to investigate Hunter Biden. We’ve seen a lot of things between his relationship with China, with energy companies in Ukraine, and I think that’s important. Adam: On the issue of the investigations, the Supreme Court, Justice specifically Clarence Thomas, has not stepped in to help slow the investigation into removing classified documents from the White House to the Trump home, to their area in their federal government. In our debate over the Granite State, I asked you if you considered the FBI agents involved in this case the enemy. I said some of them. That’s a great statement, and you go further than most people would love to point your finger at Merrick Garland and Christopher Ray. When you want to call out law enforcement officials and rank the enemy, this sounds like something we’d hear from a defender cop activist. How do they enforce the law? Robert: When you grow up and see these things happen, the detectives saw an overweight middle-aged white man and decided he must be a terrorist because he fit their profile. Adam: When you say that about long-term — about rank and file law enforcement officials, the enemy, — about rank and file police officers like that, it sounds like something we’re hearing from an opponent of a police activist. Robert: That’s not true at all. Adam: President Biden is moving forward with a no-marijuana policy. How will you vote on this? Robert: I will definitely destroy it. Schedule I is not legal for medical purposes. People using it for medical purposes are technically illegal, from a federal point of view. Adam: Is that enough? Robert: At the federation level
