On Bush’s crimes:

We have to look back. We are increasing the funding for investigations, we’re even considering having a select committee to go back and look at these things.


My favorite Woody Guthrie song is "Union Made." I believewhas has happened in the last eight years has been unfair to working men and women. We’ve got card check in Nevada. The cry from business is that it takes away the secret ballot. That’s garbage. We hope to get to it before this summer. I’m a union guy.

On immigration reform:

I’ve received so many threats because I put immigration on the calendar three separate times. Comprehensive reform important to our country. Protecting our borders for the security of our people. We need to have a guest worker program. We need them in the service industry. We need to have a good fair temporary working program. We need to bring the undocumented workers out of the shadows. Let’s put them in line for citizenship. They come out of the shadows and be productive. They pay taxes. They learn English. We need to do something about employer sanction. DREAM Act. We’ve got to make sure kids can go to school.
