Laura Ingraham hosted Senator John Thune.
Thune said that while the sequester wasn't pleasant, it saved money and the new budget has wiped this out. Ingraham said it was an opportunity lost to demonstrate conservative values. Thune and Ingraham agreed that there are numberous examples of incompetence for the GOP to exploit. Ingraham predicted that this is a preview of how a comprehensive immigration law would play out. Both commented on the abuse of executive orders and powers to negate the intent of laws. Thune said few people have signed up for Obamacare and that the feedback from citizens has been frightening. He said it is an example of how big government can't handle big programs such as health care.
Thune said Hillary Clinton's statements on women's bipartisan role in Congress are self-serving. He feels this is a chance to constrast with the conservative view of freedom, limited government and fiscal restraint. He thinks the GOP doesn't do a good enough job speaking to middle class issues and personalizing them. He said the GOP shouldn't underestimate Hillary Clinton's abilities politically.
Thune said we love the personal freedom aspect of democracy but not the personal responsibility aspect.
