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. In addition, Bush expressed concerns about proliferation and endorsed the Non Proliferation Treaty bargain that promotes civilian use of nuclear energy.

Senator Marco Rubio wants nuclear missiles kept on hair trigger alert despite the risk of accidents and misjudgments, and a history of technical flaws in the warning systems. However, he said he will study recommendations for de-alerting.

Marco Rubio says he gets asked "at every stop" about the role of private companies profiting from a federal policy requiring detention of 34,000 immigrants every day. But he insists corporations are not writing those laws, and that large-scale detention is necessary.

Dwight and Mark were able to ask Kasich questions on who profits from war and prisions. Kasich called for a military build-up. We still don't know what he thinks about the immigrant detention quota.

I attended the Jeb! town hall in Alton NH and asked him about the immigrant detention quota. Jeb said he doesn't like "a quota of people behind bars" and added, "I think that policy should change."

I asked Christie about the present corporate control of our nuclear weapons labs and whether profit should govern our nuclear weapons and overall defense policy. He said no, but added that corporations are entitled to a reasonable profit provided they make reliable weapons for national defense
