Not only was the President unpresidential, surprise, surprise, yesterday in his behavior, I think the meeting was a setup so he could walk out. But I'll say just that. And as I said to him yesterday, these people cannot go to their fathers to cover their payments, their costs. Can you?
Can any of you if this happened to you? These families, these families, many of them veterans, are not able to meet their mortgage payment, their rent payment, their car payment, harming their own credit ratings. You're no friend of veterans if you harm their credit rating, and that's exactly what the President is doing.
800,000 innocent families. What did they do to deserve this? Of course, the President doesn't believe in governance. So he doesn't care if governance doesn't take place, he doesn't appreciate the role of public policy in the lives of the American people. There's a better way, a more effective way, to protect, to secure our borders, and that is what the debate should be about.
And if you believe in your arguments and you're convinced that you're right and you think you can persuade others, you don't have to shut down government to strengthen your hand. Any questions?
