McDonnell talks health care, immigration, liquor on FOX, MSNBC, FOX Business
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) appeared on a trio of national shows today to talk about health care, immigration and privatizing the state's 332 liquor stores on FOX, FOX Business and MSNBC.
Hear what he said about:
This is about whether or not the Congress, using the commerce clause of the United States Constitution, can force a citizen of Virginia or of the United State to buy a product or a service, in this case, health insurance, and if you don't, have a monetary fine.
No one wants to support the kind of immigration where people come to the United States illegally, and then commit crimes against other citizens or against other immigrants. We want more lawful immigration to benefit the economic needs of America, but not to have more crime.
I just don't think the government ought to be in the liquor business. Thirty-two states already have private sales. Only 18 are controlled states. This goes back 76 years to the repeal of Prohibition. And I think it is the right decision for what the core functions of government are, which is not distributing alcohol. Let the private sector get involved, raise money for transportation. I think it's a winner.
