like. yes ma'am? thehat you think about kindergarten company taking our land away -- gender morgan company taking our land away for their profit? ted cruz: it is a very good question. i think we need to follow the law. the law on the pipeline has varied. when it comes to oil pipelines, they are governed by state laws state-by-state. different states have different standards on eminent domain. pipelines have been considered to roads as common carriers. it varies by state for the carriers. forecast, that is governed by pipelines,forecast that is governed by federal laws. we need to follow the standards. part of those standards means that a private company does not have a right to trespass on your
company. we need to protect those property rights and make sure federal law is followed. we need to honor those legal commitments. so, eminent domain has been allowed for public use, and pipelines, because they are common carriers, transporting materials that are used by multiple sellers, they had been analogized to roads. they are in a great aria -- gray area. we need to make sure the law is respecting property rights and also ensuring we can develop energy infrastructure at the same time. yes? yeah? >> [indiscernible] ted cruz: it is a great
question. when it comes to any quality, inequality, which both president obama and hillary clinton talk about constantly, has increased dramatically in the last seven years. you know, i have long said i think that single biggest lie in all of politics is that republicans are the party of the rich. the truth is, the rich do just fine with big numbers. big business does great with big government. they have lobbyists and accountants and lawyers. they get in bed with these governments. for example, the top 1%, the millionaires and billionaires that the president demagogues all the time, they earn a higher share of our income than any year since 1920. income inequality has increased dramatically. people who are hurt the most are the most vulnerable, young people, hispanics, african-americans, single moms.
of the 10ns, six wealthiest counties in america are in and around washington dc. many of you may be surprised to hear, the press is often agree withi actually bernie sanders when he diagnoses the problem. i agree with bernie sanders that the system is rigged and it is rigged in favor of the washington corporate interest, and both parties get in bed with the special interests and big money. [applause] now, where i disagree with bernie is on his solution. if government is corrupt, i don't think it makes sense to have a whole lot more government. [applause] and i think one of the reasons so many people are uniting behind this campaign is they are looking for a candidate who has been willing to take on the bipartisan corruption of
washington, take on not just the democrats but to take on leaders of my own party, to stand up to both of them and say no, we are going to stand with the american people in of continuing the cronyism, the corporate welfare, the handout. how do we deal with any quality? we and all the corporate welfare, the subsidies, the mandates, the bailout. [applause] number two, we create an environment where small businesses are growing and advancing and there is opportunity. i think about these issues from the perspective of my dad. i dad was born and raised in cuba. as a teenager, my father was imprisoned and tortured. when he fled to america, it was 1967, he was just 16. he had nothing, he could not speak english, he had $100 in his underwear. he washed dishes for $.56 an
hour. he paid his way through school and went on to start a small business. today he is a pastor. if you look at my father, i try to think about any given law, how would it have impacted my dad? why did he get that first job washing dishes? he was unable to speak english. you don't need to speaking less to put additional under hot water -- to speak english to put a dish under hot water. after that, he got some english and got a job being a cook. likedas something he better. from there, he was hired at the university of texas teaching math to undergrads. by the end, he got hired as a computer programmer and went on and on and eventually started his own small business. -- if cut off the bat of you cut off the bottom rung, you never get the second or third or
fourth. for example, obamacare, one of the reasons i and passionately opposed to it, it is increasing income inequality by hurting millions of people at the bottom. if my dad were still washing pitches -- dishes today. , the other high he would have been higher -- fired. if he had been lucky enough to have a job, the odds are incredibly high he would have had his hours reduced to 20. obamacare kicks in at 30. you can't feed your kids, you can't pay your way through -- 29 hours a week. it is why i want to lift the burden. you can see incredible job creation. last time we did this was the -- 1980's under ronald reagan.
the median income for african-americans rose about $5,000 a year. during the reagan administration. you will to talk about lifting people were facing challenges, making it easier for them to face the american dream, when the economy is booming, it helps the most vulnerable. right now, the most vulnerable are getting hurt because they do not have the opportunity. that is the solution to income inequality. [applause] sir? >> congress is addicted to spending. with a balanced budget and term limit, would it hope? -- help? ted cruz: both would help enormously. i think we need a strong balance budget amendment that mandates
-- most of the states have a balanced budget amendment. it also requires a super majority in congress to raise taxes. it also limit the growth of spending in gdp. on term limits, i used to support term limits until i got to the senate. now i really support term limit. [applause] now, how do we make them happen? i think we need to things. iesidential leadership. intend to push hard for both term limits and ballast budget -- balanced budget. congress likes spending money. one of the things that is driving if there is a growing movement for convention of the state under article five of the constitution. [applause] the framers put article five in the constitution to check on washington as a means for the
people to rein in washington. my view is that movement will keep growing and growing. one of two things is going to happen, either congress will finally listen and send term a minute to the states for ratification, where we will see a movement in the states. one are the other, we will get it done. yes? hold on one second for the microphone. >> what is your plan for improving the infrastructure of america, including roads, bridges? whenever going to get the work on the ground in america? ted cruz: terrific question. one of the problems we have right now is taxpayers send money to washington. it goes into a black hole. i talked before about the 10th amendment. h amendment is what
keeps decision-making close to the people. , for example, you talked about roads and bridges. there is no reason why the federal government should decide what roads and bridges to build in the state of new hampshire. [applause] , theght to take that money transportation money, and block credit back to the states and allow the people of new hampshire to decide what bridges and roads need to be built. [applause] education. i believe we should abolish the federal department of education. [applause] and the reason is simple. sometimes people in the press, when they hear the abolish idea, they might say, you don't think education is important.
it is the opposite. becation is too important to governed by unelected bureaucrats in washington. decisions on education ought to be at the state level, or even the level for locals. parents should have a say on what is being done for their kids. [applause] yes, ma'am? [indiscernible] about senatorink olson and what would be your [indiscernible] about researchg to cure cancer. this is a real passion of mine. pennyk that we are often wise and foolish when it comes to diseases. --m the chairman of the site science and subspace committee in the senate.
i chaired a hearing bringing in and for disease. -- in cure for disease. we talked about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and alzheimer's. those four had massive costs. i believe we need to dramatically increase the research that goes into cures 1, 2, than trying to cure three, or four of those big diseases. curing one or two, we could literally save millions of lives and hundreds of billions or even trillions of dollars. medicare alone could have trillions of dollars in care. alzheimer's is a horrible disease. we are spending pennies on not make anydoes sense.
we ought to invest in the product. if we can invest in the product, we can save millions of lives. [applause] there is another component of that, which -- there is another component to that. what is maddening is, you have with a life-threatening disease, especially a rare disease where they cannot get treatment. there will be drugs approved all of the world but they are illegal in the united states and they have to get on a plane and fly somewhere else to get coverage. i better do legislation to dramatically accelerate fda
approval so if any drug or device is approved in another country, europe or asia, the united states has 30 days to complete the process or it goes directly to congress. [applause] cruz: accelerating the approval process will help dramatically in terms of innovation and anyone who is or try ands the right to experimental medicine. it should not be the federal government to build a say, your life is not important enough we are going to block you from potentially life-saving cures. last question. on?he mic come on up front.
[applause] >> i want to ask, in 1992 hillary clinton said she was not going to the white house to bake cookies. sen. cruz: what is your name? hank? how old are you honey? nine-years-old. let's give around for applause for hank. listen, hank, thank you for that question. my view on hillary clinton is i think that she is running on an agenda of ideas that do not work . she is running on an agenda from
the past full if you look at the democratic hardy, it is like watching a sitcom, that 70's show. recycling failed ideas. hey, maybe it's a good idea to have socialized medicine. maybe it's a good idea to jack up taxes to 90%. idea to ignoreod enemies, put our heads in the sand, retreat from the world. we know those are terrible ideas. we know they don't work. i think with hillary, we make the very simple point that we know what works in this country. freedom works. you are nine. when i was nine-years-old, it was 1980. it was the year ronald reagan was running. by theber standing television watching ronald reagan debate jimmy carter. i was kind of a weird kid. ] aughter sen. cruz: at age nine, seeing
ronald reagan was inspiring that she could stand for freedom in the constitution that we can have a better america. back then, we're being told by jimmy carter, by the media, this is the best america gets. we need to accept malaise and be happy with it. tomorrow can be better. more jobs, more freedom, more opportunity. i believe that with all my heart. thank you. [applause] sen. cruz: i want to thank everyone for being here, thank you for taking the time. let me close with the following. me that the with stakes have never been higher, that it is now or never, that we are standing at the edge of a cliff and if we keep going the same direction, we risk doing
irreparable damage to the greatest country in in the greatest history of the world. if you agree with me, i want to ask you to do three things. first, join us. commit to come out on tuesday and foot with us. if we stand together, we will win. [applause] two, bringnumber others. commit right down to pick up the phone and call your mom. it is actually a good idea to call your mom anyway. call your sister or your son or your next her neighbor or your business partner or your college roommate. say, this election matters. what matters to me, and matters my future, it matters to my kids and grandkids. i want to ask everyone here to vote for me 10 times. [laughter]
sen. cruz: we are not democrats, i am not suggesting voter fraud. but if everyone here brings nine other people on tuesday night, you will have voted 10. you know, and hank, you are not yet old enough to vote. you are not yet old enough to vote, but if you bring 10 other people to vote on tuesday, you will have voted 10 times before you turn 18-years-old. [applause] sen. cruz: and the third thing i want to ask of each of you is that to pray. that you commit today to lift this country up every day in prayer every day from now until election day. spent just one minute a day say, father god, please continue this awakening, this word of revival. pull this country back from the abyss.
and i'll tell you bit of history, that our friends at the mainstream media will never tell you. in january 1981, when ronald reagan took the oath of office, his left hand was resting on second chronicle 7:14. , which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then i will hear their prayers from heaven and forgive their sins and i will heal their land. [applause] we have done it
before, we have faced these challenges before. faced the abyss before and the american people came together and pulled this country back. we have done it before, we have done it here in new hampshire and a fleece into other we can do it at 10. we can bring back that last, best hope for mankind that is the united of america.

we have candidate donald trump at a rally at 1:00. 6:00 p.m. sanders at eastern. today here on c-span. since 1992 weft a really good partnership with the abc affiliate. so once again this year as we've done in the past to show a national audience how this race is unfolding through the eyes of the local media. what's going to be different is that we'll have the results and be showing the speeches. but we will be showing the speeches in its entirety. and our talking heads will be the viewers as we hear from our
viewers, take calls and tweets and get a sense of what they're saying about this race. ♪ announcer: this week on "q&a," associated press reporter jesse holland. mr. holland talks about his book, "the invisibles: the untold story of african american slaves in the white house". brian: jesse holland, you write in your brand-new book, i decided i would write a second book in 2008 while writing on the then senator barack obama presidential campaign. as he made a weekend stop over in his hometown of chicago, illinois. why did you lead your forward with that? jesse: part of the reason why i got into writing about african-american history in washington, d.c. was because of barack obama and his campaign.
there was a lot of interest in african american history, having the first african-american president in the white house. i was lucky enough to be assigned by the associated press to cover obama that weekend. i remember pulling up to the obamas' townhouse in chicago thinking about what book will i write next. and right at that spot is when it hit me. i got so excited about the topic and so i immediately called my editor. she immediately tamped down my enthusiasm and told me to think about it. to make sure that i had a really good idea about what i wanted to do.
