Read transcript at the Real News Network.
 
Sen. Fritz Hollings:

 The Huffington Post:  They're All Against Jobs
”Who is against jobs in the United States? The big banks, Wall Street, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Business Roundtable, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Federation, Corporate America, the President of the United States, Congress of the United States.”

Economy In Crisis:  Nothing Gets Done
”President Bush cut taxes and approved every spending bill but one. It was vetoed mainly for the stem cell research provision. President Bush increased the national debt by $5 trillion. Increasing the national debt by $5 trillion, Republicans can no longer be called conservative.”

Disturb the sound of silence.
