OK well the -- limit deadlock may strike many as petulant children acting out so we thought we'd see if Dr.
Could help our processes -- joins me now from Washington DC good to see a Dr.
The good morning.
So let you know we kind of laugh at fat kids screaming back and forth at each other but that's -- what might be going on.
On Capitol Hill during these meetings if you weren't advising them Dr.
Phil what would you tell them to do to finally get to a decision.
We you know I'll tell you my advice would be you people need to remember who you work for.
You don't work for your party you work for the American people and we expect you to be up here doing your job.
And I hope everybody will stop this party politics and recognize.
Whatever country around we got a government to run -- need to get this -- thing worked out we need to get money flowing.
And we need to go about our business I want somebody to do their job.
So if you had President Obama and the speaker of the house John Boehner sitting with you on your show.
And you heard that the president told the Republicans to do their homework like his daughters do and the John Boehner -- the the president excuse us for trying to lead.
Would you say that both of them should not speak that way to one another.
Well I would say the need to quit playing to the cameras and they need to quit posturing because I'll promise you behind closed doors.
They can roll their sleeves up and they can come up with a plan that everybody can live with -- everybody's got some other agenda.
-- they -- elections coming up they got constituents that are riding you.
But the point is we've got a business to run here that's called the country and they need to do that allowing them to stop the posturing.
I know that you have been invited up by the judicial committee chair senator Patrick Leahy.
To testify before a congressional committee today and on the violence against women act can you tell me about what your contribution will be.
Well I can tell you what I hope my contribution is -- that is to let these folks know that what they're doing -- this violence against women act is very very important.
This act needs to be re authorize look we've got two million women a year.
That are subject to domestic violence and as importantly as those two million women are ten million children that are caught in the crossfire.
That impacts them for the rest of their lives so this is very important legislation.
That I support.
It's you know week that we have so much that we can do -- the state level and even locally but we've got to have some federal muscle behind it.
And to have this fact in the funding that comes with it is critically critically important.
I started a campaign on our show called in the silence on domestic violence and this is part of that.
All right we'll hopefully get passed since of that debt ceiling meeting as well maybe you could impart some advice to them a Dr.
-- -- -- you thanks so much.
