After identifying herself as an Iraq war veteran, Kelly Dougherty asked Rand Paul about the role of private military contractors that profit from war and use their profits to lobby for more contracts. "Anybody who gets money from government in the form of a contract should be limited in what they can do to lobby to get more of our money," said Paul. "It would say in the contract, 'I agree not to lobby and give contributions to legislators.' I think you could limit special interests by contract, voluntary contract, when they do business with government."

Our friends at Global Zero asked Jeb Bush for his views on the proposed trillion dollar nuclear weapons expansion. Bush said he could get behind a "Reaganesque" goal of multi-lateral nuclear weapons elimination. He also said he supports "modernization" if it's done in concert with arms reduction plans.
