We should not mislead the Iraqis into thinking they have unlimited time to reach a settlement. The longer they think that, the less likely they will be to act.
We must have a timetable for withdrawal of U.S. forces - or at the very least a plan for it - something the administration has incredulously failed to do for over two years.
With every year that passes, the more we have to be careful not to forget the causes and consequences of the Great Recession.
The failure of one regional bank, assuming it is following a traditional model, will not threaten the entire system.
I feel lucky that I get the privilege of serving in the Senate.
The overwhelming number of Democrats... think our trade policy has gone in the wrong direction. They think that our trade policy encourages companies to leave the country. They think our trade policy has caused more and more businesses to outsource.
The reality in Iraq is that we are creating new terrorists and severely damaging the public impression of the United States in the Muslim world.
We will see a different trade policy coming out of here, and I'm convinced of it. I wouldn't be supporting Hillary Clinton if I didn't believe that.
I know that on trade and on enforcement and rules of origin, on autos, on issues like taxation, on outsourcing of jobs, I know that - and on Wall Street reform, Hillary Clinton's going to do the right thing.
There is going to be globalization, but we need to do it under terms - under rules that work as rules work for our domestic economy on the dynamic of capitalism. You need to do trade in the same way.
Raising the minimum wage means raising the living wage - and that's good news for Ohio.
People feel these job-killing trade agreements have really squeezed the middle class and caused lots of people to lose their middle-class status.
We need to deal with helping middle-class kids get a college education.
I see something different in Hillary Clinton. She wants a trade prosecutor. She's going after currency. She's going stand up strong on keeping China designated as a non-market economy.
One of the things I do in banking committees is put pressure on them, and one of the other things I do is through my website, through outside pressure, and I ask people to come and help us join that fight where we can get people outside to keep putting the pressure on the Senate to make sure there are no compromises and weakening of Dodd-Frank.
We're losing all kinds of white-collar jobs, all kinds of jobs in addition to manufacturing jobs, which we're losing by the droves in my state.
Working families in Ohio have been hurt badly. It started really with the Bush years.
Since the beginning of the Bush administration when we were attacked, September 11th, we've not had any major terrorist attack in this country. We've had individual crazy people, of normally, they look more like me than they look like Middle Easterners.
My priorities are a fair trade policy in this country, increasing the minimum wage, going after the drug companies for the way that they charge and their whole pricing structure that have put absolutely amazing drugs out of reach for so many Americans.
I love working for the people of Ohio, and I have a lot more work to do as their senator.
This year, we are going to take our government out of the hands of corporate special interests and put it back into the hands of Ohio families - where it belongs.
For Trump, it's always about Trump and how he makes more money.
We should forcefully call out China whenever it violates international standards.
I don't believe Trump or Cruz are fair traders. I think they are probably both free traders.
No Ohio family should be forced to go hungry during the holidays or any time.
It is past time for Republican leadership to answer for record deficits and reckless spending, both in Iraq and in the U.S. It's time for a plan to bring our troops home.
The voters in both parties understand our trade policy really has betrayed the middle class.
We must work harder to lessen inequalities. Only by doing so can we speak with credibility and moral authority to other countries and the People's Republic of China.
We have rules about the environment and rules about worker safety and rules about consumer protection.
There are people working in Mahoning Valley in steel, in Findlay, Ohio, in rubber, in many other places because we've enforced trade deals.
I welcome the work that the Clinton Global Initiative has done with groups and individuals like Bono and all that's happened around the world.
That just doesn't make sense, that government should be making money off students.
I have generally and will always fight for clean air and safe drinking water laws.
We're a country of rule of law, and rule of law doesn't move fast, especially in an entity as big the U.S. government.
There is no war on coal. Period. There are more coal jobs and more coal produced in Ohio than there were five years ago, in spite of the talking points and the yard signs.
The Ohio Legislature's passed a law to allow concealed weapons in day care centers, but interesting: this same Legislature, in its wisdom, doesn't allow concealed weapons in the statehouse.
As Ohio's working families continue to recover from the worst economic recession in our country's history, we need a president who's committed to growing our economy by lifting up the middle class.
Clevelanders care about underdogs, partly because we are, partly because we have empathy, and we're - we have faith in our God and faith in humanity, and that makes us support the underdog.
Hard-working men and women who have made America the strongest nation in the world are betrayed by Washington's trade policy.
Donald Trump outsources his ties to China. He outsourced his furniture to Turkey. I know a company in Ohio that could make that furniture in Archibald, Ohio.
Foreign companies in the United States have a significantly higher unionization rate than other companies overall.
We know that, too often, oil and other hazardous materials are shipped across the country on aging tankers. Too many communities have seen what happens when trains derail and in some cases catch fire.
President Obama did something that no Democrat's done since Franklin Roosevelt: that is, get a majority vote in Ohio twice. So I don't really buy that his policy is that unpopular.
I see all four presidential candidates, the leading four, Cruz and Trump and Sanders and Clinton, all oppose TPP.
Individual people shouldn't be fearful, because by and large our government, the federal government - people always talk; obviously, they don't trust the feds, whatever. The federal government and local communities have done a pretty good job at keeping us safe.
