    What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?

  7. "…we need to stop talking about the economy in ways that make it seem like the weather. The economy is a result of the rules we create and the choices we make. The people who are struggling to make ends meet do so because we have built — through intentional choice — an economy that produces inadequate incomes for more than one-third of all Americans. So we need to have a real debate about what to do to build an economy that doesn’t produce such misery."

  14. "The VA operates the largest integrated health care system in the nation, treating nearly 6.5 million patients each year. According to veterans with whom I have spoken, veteran service organizations that represent millions of veterans, and independent studies, the quality of care provided by VA, once veterans are in the system, is good. The crisis that we currently are facing is one of access, getting veterans into the system in a reasonable period of time. Some of my colleagues are concerned that the proposal Sen. McCain and I developed, and a similar proposal passed in the House, will cost significant sums of money. They are right. The sad truth, however, is that war is an extremely expensive proposition – in terms of human life, human suffering and financial cost. Taking care of veterans is a cost of war. It’s that simple."
