In this episode you will hear:
• Everything I say is Morgan’s opinion. It’s Morgan’s perspective. (6:24)
• Candidate Morgan is different now because I have such a depth of what actually happens in the halls of congress. (7:21)
• You have to convince all the other members about what you think. (8:58)
• I’ve had conversations where the individual on the other side of the table is like “I don’t want a border. I don’t care about laws on the border. Anybody that wants to come across and plant a flag has the right to do so.” Those conversations happen. (10:16)
• It’s not Morgan representing the entire country. It’s Morgan representing District 8. (13:10)
We create appropriations bills, and appropriations bills fund the government. (14:31)
• I’m doing every single day – as hard as I can – to move laws in order to protect the people of Texas. (32:53)
• We have a spending problem. The process itself works, if you realize you can’t spend more than you have. (33:58)
• Learning to be a congressional member. You have to understand your role. (57:26)
• It can get interesting on the committees. (61:16)
• I tried never to get hit in my blind spot. I tell my staff: “Don’t ever let me get caught off guard. I don’t want to embarrass the district.” (61:30)
• I want House Resolution 2, the Border Bill to come across from the senate. And I want this to be signed by the President, so we can enforce it. That’s primary goal #1. (65:22)
• [Melanie] Q: How long do you see yourself as a congressman? [Morgan] A: 3 terms. (66:17)
• They chose me, and I’m doing my absolute best to widen the road that those went before me paved. (68:25)
• After I leave – if somebody was to say anything about me, the response that I’d be honored to hear would be “I wish he was still here.” (70:12)
