FIORINA: Government trying to level the playing field between internet and brick-and-mortar creates a problem. The FCC jumping in now and saying we're going to put 400 pages of regulation over the internet is going to create massive problems. But guess who pushed for that regulation? The big internet companies. This is what is going on: the big and powerful [companies] use big and powerful government to their advantage. It's why you see Walgreens buying Rite Aid. It's why you see the pharmaceuticals getting together; it's why you see the health insurance companies getting together; it's why you see the banks consolidating.
BUSH: I think this has become something that needs to be looked at in terms of regulation. Effectively it is day-trading without any regulation at all. And there should be some regulation.
CHRISTIE: Are we really talking about getting government involved in fantasy football? We have $19 trillion in debt. We have people out of work. We have ISIS and al Qaeda attacking us. And we're talking about fantasy football? Can we stop? How about this: How about we get the government to do what they're supposed to be doing, secure our borders, protect our people, and support American values and American families. Enough on fantasy football. Let people play, who cares?
Pataki said, "Clinton put an unsecure server, in her home. We have no doubt that that was hacked, and that state secrets are out there to the Iranians, the Russians, the Chinese and others."
It is true that Clinton had a personal email account on a private server. It is also true that some emails contained unmarked classified information. But was Clinton's server "hacked"? And did the Iranians, Russians and Chinese obtain "state secrets"? That's all speculation.
Pataki is referring to reports of hacking attempts that may or may not have been successful. Investigations have found that some hacking attempts originated from Russia, China, South Korea and Germany--but no evidence that any were successful.
BUSH: Well, first of all, I'm 7 and 0 in my fantasy league. And I think this has become something that needs to be looked at in terms of regulation. Effectively it is day-trading without any regulation at all. And when you have insider information, which apparently has been the case, where people use that information and use big data to try to take advantage of it, there has to be some regulation. If they can't regulate themselves, then the NFL needs to look at just, you know, moving away from them a little bit. And there should be some regulation. I have no clue whether the federal government is the proper place, my instinct is to say, hell no, just about everything about the federal government.
