Christie Responses:

1. Certainly the ruling on the President's health care law. While the majority of the law maybe constitutional the fact that the Supreme Court allowed the mandate to stand is irrational. We have taken the Commerce Clause too far and as a result we're empowering Congress to take more unconstitutional actions in the future. It was a mistake by the Courts to let the law stand and if I'm President of the United States I will work to see it repealed. Now some people will say, hey the main parts of it have been in effect for two years and about four years for the other stuff, just let it stand. I won't because it's bad policy, it's bad politics and it will bankrupt this nation like all the other welfare states of Europe.

2. President Obama doesn't make a lot of comments on much lately, but here's how you combat inflation. First we've got all this excess money floating around out there and not enough stuff to match it. If we tie the creation of stuff to the flow of money that's a start. Then comes the part of reducing government spending, and keep that flow of money low. We've got to be able to control the flow of money, and it going to have be the responsibility of the Fed, for it was designed in a way to combat inflation.

3. Obviously, if the situation were to occur, any US involvement would done after careful and cautious consideration and if our interests were at stake. Now the first step I would take is to make sure that all our troops in and around the region are secure, and then I would put them on high alert in the event we needed to become involved. However, I feel even though India is an ally of the US this would be there matter to resolve and the only way I could see the US becoming involved is under a worst case scenario. The fact is we can be supportive without becoming directly involved.

1. Citizens United was the wrong ruling. The Supreme Court justices are so far into the pocket of big businesses it's not funny. Bush v. Gore was incorrect, and it was the reason why 2000-2008 was a wasted opportunity in politics. If I was to become President, I would not enforce a litmus test, and look for the best legal minds possible. I still imagine they'll be liberals though.
2. Better job incentives. However, is inflation that important?
3. Talk to the UN about the potential for war. After that, try and enforce economic sanctions on Iran so they can back down. We don't want another equivalent of WWIII.

Debate 1 - Rahm Emanuel's responses

1)

I stand with my colleagues in believing that Citizens United has been a gigantic, destructive mistake. The ascendance of the SuperPAC ranks among the most anti-democratic developments in our modern history. One of my highest priorities as president would be to work toward reversing this decision - a decision that strikes directly at the foundations of our democracy. There's a lot that can be done legislatively, and I favor amending the Constitution if that's what it takes. Let me be clear: I believe that Americans deserve free, honest, and open elections.

To address the other half of your question, I really don't want to select justices based on their stances on particular issues. What matters to me is temperament and judicial philosophy. Respect for institutions, respect for the Constitution, and respect for Americans.  Someone who understands the power and responsibility that they would wield as a justice. The Supreme Court is not the place for partisans and ideologues. It is a place for men and women with a bearing of dignity and a sense of history, perspective, and most importantly, compassion.

2)

First of all, both Governor Cuomo and Senator Gillibrand are right - it's time for a cautious, gradual rise in interest rates, which remain at record lows. Monetary policy will be crucial to keeping inflation under control in the coming months as we begin to shift out of recovery-management mode. This recession has been deep and long - managing this transition will be one of the greatest challenges that faces President Obama's successor.

Furthermore, we need keep the Federal Reserve transparent and accountable. The Great Recession was largely a consequence of the Fed's recklessness during the Greenspan era of closed doors and secret meetings. Since then, President Obama and Chairman Bernanke have worked together to implement a series of reforms to make the Fed more responsive to the needs of all Americans. It is essential that our next President continue with these reforms, maintaining this dynamic of responsibility.

I'll also draw a contrast with what Senator McCaskill just said. Price controls have not been a part of our national conversation for several decades because when they were last implemented the results were economically catastrophic for American businesses, workers, and families.

Finally, as the economy recovers, we need to begin paying down our debt. If we do this now, we'll thank ourselves in the years ahead when borrowing money isn't nearly as cheap as it is now.

3)

Like President Obama, I will do everything within my power to prevent this. War between Iran and India would have horrific human costs and send the global economy reeling. If you think that $2.50 for a gallon of milk is bad, wait until you're paying over ten dollars for a gallon of gas. Even more disturbing are the consequence that this situation would have with regard to nuclear proliferation. Both Pakistan and India could be dangerously destabilized. The international community needs to immediately rally for a peaceful resolution, and the United States will be at the forefront.

But as much as we'll do to avoid war, I won't deny that it could happen, and America must be prepared. When it happens, our troops will already be mobilized on high alert - because we have, by far, the best intelligence service in the world, and they're working day and night to keep us apprised of events before they happen.

Also note that there's no formulaic response to this - the situation is unstable, and the details are not altogether clear. We need to be flexible as well as forceful - not every kind of crisis that might emerge will merit the same kind of response.

Marco Rubio Debate 1.
1. I view the supreme court's desicion on Obamacare to be the worst case in the last decade. Socialized medicine just increases the size of the government at a time it needs to be smaller and less invasive. You cannot ruin the free- market aspect of insurance it is simply hurting our nation and is making more people depend on the government fom cradle to grave. I have continued to fight against it even in the days following the ruling. Also if I were to appoint someone to the Supreme Court I would make it someone with a good sense of character and honest, true values that our nation desprately needs.

2. For me the answer is simple. Stop making so much money. It is common sense that when you keep pumping money from the government around it hurts prices. President Obama needs to adress this issue and not go around as if its business as usual. People won't have to worry about this if I am president becuase I will reduce government spending and make it more manageable by forcing it to do one of its original purposes such as managing this horrible problem.

3. When I get that call at 3 A.M. I announce the U.S. will take a hard stance against Iran. If it was best for our nation to defend our allies after consulting with generals and other military personel than I would do so or if it is decided it is too risky I would use other measures, not necessarily declaring war but providing support for India.

Iowa Debate: Brian Sandoval's Responses

1. I must agree with my colleagues and say that the court ruling in favor of President Obama's disastrous healthcare plan tops the list. My friends, we're not just looking at legislation that is unconstitutional, we're looking at a piece of legislation that will have devastating effects for years to come. As the former Attorney General of Nevada, I have taken a strong stand against Obamacare - the entire premise of the bill is simply unconstitutional. It's unfortunate that our nation's highest court made such a dangerous decision, but I can guarantee you, under a Sandoval administration, we're not just going to accept defeat and more on. If I'm elected as your next President, we will get Obamacare repealed once and for all!

2. We've seen it all through his Presidency - President Obama doesn't comment on much simply because he can't confidently defend his record, which is a huge problem. We need a leader who stands by their record, not one who runs away from it. The reason he won in 2012 is because he spent billions of dollars in assassinating Speaker Gingrich's character and his effective use with a teleprompter. It had nothing to do with his actual performance as our President.

We can combat inflation by not printing so much money, first off. Unfortunately, this is an unknown concept for our current administration - their solution to all problems is to just print more money! It is absolutely necessary that we reign in government spending and shrink the size of government, and I look forward to doing that as your next President. Thank you.

3. The first thing I would do in such situation is to say a prayer that all of our troops and innocent people in harm's way may be protected by the hand of God. All options would then be on the table, and I would surround myself with advisers that could assist in weighing the pro's and con's of each option. Finally, I would make a final decision that I believe would be in the best interest's of the American people. Entering another war is not something we want, rather, it is what I consider to be a last-resort. I will do everything possible to keep our men and women in uniform out of harm's way. Thank you.

Iowa Debate--Allen West

1. The Supreme Courtís decision on Obamacare and Roe vs Wade were without a doubt the worst decisions made. As President, I would only appoint strict constructionalist judges. People like the late Justice Scalia, for example.

2. Well, the Federal Reserve needs to be looked at it. People like Congressman Paul brought the issue to a forefront over the years, and it became a big issue for the Tea Party, which, by the way, to those in the lame stream media, it does exist still. President Obama just prints and prints money and expects the deficit to heal. Folks, that what I call the definition of insanity, and it needs to end!

3. I have been leading the charge against Iran for years. I will not stand down to those who seek to destroy our allies, such as India and Israel. I would consider a military strike on Iran if any armed action is taken against any allies in the region. If I get that call at 3:00 AM, Irans going to wish they stood down by 3:30 AM.

Sandoval Debate Response, Statement directed towards Allen West:

(Regarding to question 1)

Allen, I agree with you 100% - Roe V Wade infringed on state rights, and must be overturned. However, the question was which decision made by the Supreme Court in the past decade do you oppose the most. I would be interested to see if you have the same opinion of myself, Governor Christie, and Senator Rubio's. Thank you!

Allen West response to Governor Sandoval
Certainly, the, well I think, obvious answer is the Supreme Courtís ruling on Obamacare. Itís downright unconstitutional, and I worked hard in Congress and with Attorney General Pam Bondi to prevent it. Unfortunately, we failed, but we still are going to fight socialized medicine, and we are going to win! This is exactly why, as Governor Perry pointed out four years ago, why we need pro Constitution judges.

Jeb Bush Debate

1) If I may step in...
I believe we are stepping into dangerous territory when we begin criticising the Supreme Court on decisions they made, especially if we seek the office of president.

Do I believe the court has made bad decisions, yes. Do I agree with every decision the court has made, no. But we must be careful not to cross any lines concerning seperation of powers. After all, the President rightly received criticism when he chastised the Supreme Court during a State of the Union Address

As to the type of judges I would appoint, I agree with my colleagues on stage is that I would appoint judges that would rule from a strict-constructionist approach.

2) Congressman West is correct in linking our current rate of inflation with the actions of the Federal Reserve. But, remember, they print money like mad in order to lessen the value of the dollar in order to reduce the value of the debt. Not only should we demand more accountability from the Fed, but also make a concerted effort to reduce our spending so as not to lay the burden of our debt on the Fed.

3) No one can say for sure what they would do if they were in a hypothetical situation until they are.actually in it. I would, however, have already solidified our relations with India before having to go through any such scenario.

What I can assure you is that I have had experience in dealing with crisis situations. I worked with FEMA before, during, and after several hurricanes hit our state.

"We must rebuild the urban landscape of industrial America. The Midwest has been especially hard-hit by the past recession, but has also been in deep trouble since the 1970s. In order to make sure that Detroit re-emerges as a major economic force in the years and decades ahead, we must make sure that we are re-organizing the city. We cannot allow vacant lots to lie around unused, while only 2/3 of the city's dwellings remain inhabited. If re-organization is to take place, it should happen at the local level and should not be hampered by either the state or the federal bureaucracy. If Detroit is willing to put the planning and resources into rebuilding its cityscape, as  President I will provide it will at the resources I can to facilitate its goals."

...answering a reporter's question on President Obama's appointment of Richard C. Tallman to the Supreme Court...

"From what I know of Judge Tallman, he is an experienced and well-respected jurist of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. I look forward to learning more about Judge Tallman and I have already scheduled a personal meeting with him next week. I hope that the confirmation process can move forward expeditiously and with the desire to appoint the most qualified jurists to the highest law in our land. This is not an issue where gamesmanship should play a role, the Senate has work ahead that it must attend to and not dance around as is unfortunately often the case."

"While the Affordable Care act went a long way in insuring that the highest of Americans in history and insured, we have much progress to make. Premiums are too high, and paperwork abundant. We must streamline the healthcare system by encouraging providers to digitize patient records so that they are available to a network of care providers. Take Speare Memorial, for example, this hospital has cut overhead costs by 30% simply by getting rid of costly paper records and replacing them with digital equivalents. In so doing, the cost of providing care has gone down while the quality of care has remained high. We must ensure that this model can be used throughout the nation."

Late Paul Ryan Debate responses:
1) I would only appoint conservative judges to SCOTUS. No to "compromisers".
2) To fight inflation we should cut the unnecessary programms like Medicare and Medicaid.
3) I would not send our boys to death if two other countries are trrying to destroy each other.

Narrative:

On October 22nd, 2015 we saw India make its first airstrikes on Iranian military sites. Irans military was poised ready to strike back but has not yet. The UN along with NATO are pushing Iran and India not to engage each other but it seems futile. Pakistani officials are worried that India will try to pass through their territory or simply come for them next. Pakistan is beginning to saber rattle and pushing Afghanistan to choose sides if a war between Pakistan and India were to break out.

On October 23rd, Iran retaliated the airstrikes with several missiles being fired at targets in India which miss their targets and hit civilian areas. While India called its own strikes "preemptive" they have called the Iranian artillery bombardment an act of war. India has demanded that Pakistan grant its troop access or India says it "has other means to take care of Iran."

In the United States, President Obama has been turned down by both sides to handle negotiations. His approval this week, drops to 40%.

Cape & trade goes back to the floor of both houses and it passes in the Senate while failing in the House. Afterwards the President calls Congress "broken."  Speaker John Boehner calls the President's leadership "broken" not the Congress in response.

The President's nominee for the Supreme Court will be voted on in November.
