BILLS: Let markets drive it, don't try to pick and choose the winners and losers. HSBC, a large bank, has said that the low carbon, conservation, environmental approach, those industries, is a $2 trillion industry in the next 10 years because young people are really getting into conservation. If you can't go as a private company and take part in a $2 trillion sector of the economy, if you can't find a way forward, you shouldn't be a company.
From my perspective the government needs to have less of a footprint and let the market drive these things. Again, by trying to manipulate interests rates, creating 2,000 subsidies since 1980, all we're doing is creating the boom and then when the boom busts we're trying to fix he bust so we get more and more government.
We must also remain vigilant to protect our nation from terrorists and those who wish to do us harm. Cyber security is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation. An effective response to cyber-attacks will require coordination among intelligence agencies, law enforcement, and private owners of critical cyber infrastructure. However, it is also imperative that we not sacrifice citizens' privacy and civil liberties. I will continue to fight for measures that allow us to find the proper balance between national security and personal privacy.
