Jeff's a good friend of mine, it's just that simple. Jeff and I worked together in the House for many, many years. We worked on earmark reform, the earmark band. He's just a dear friend. I think he's a very good person. I like Jeff, he's a happy warrior. And I wish him the best and I think he should be remembered for a lot of the positive impacts he had on public policy and that's just what I felt like putting out.
He deserves to be saluted. Do I wish these differences wouldn't be happening out in the public? Yeah, I think people should settle their differences personally. I think it's better that way. I think it's in our interest to have party unity so that we can continue to work forward on an agenda.
I'm not that worried about this because I know Jeff, I know Bob and these guys. I know they want what's right for their constituents. And I know they're for tax reform and I know they wanna get these things done. But it would be nicer to see people just settle with differences in private than in public.

Does that strike you as inappropriate?>> Like I said, it's a different style than mine. What I can control is my own actions and our own so I conduct myself a little bit differently.
Like I said, I've got differences of opinion with people all the time. I just prefer to raise them personally.
