In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt summoned a bipartisan group of congressional leaders to the White House to discuss a secret plan to win World War II. At the conclusion of the briefing, the President asked Kenneth McKellar, the Tennessean who chaired the Senate Appropriations Committee, if the senator could “hide two billion dollars in the appropriations bill for this project to win the war.”

I believe we are at a very unique crossroads in our country and I want to talk to you about that today.
