You want me not to welcome back additional yeah here -- a difficult -- a kids film to finish up well -- Now -- and -- yeah.
-- -- The moniker -- best seller then put up the graphic guys this is 2006.
President Obama call that a failure in leadership to raise.
The debt ceiling Joseph Biden was with them and all the Democrats unanimous now.
We're completely flip -- from now what happen.
At its finest yesterday -- but I do think Republicans are supposed to be more serious than the Democrats.
And I think they shouldn't have voted to raise the debt ceiling and that's why I said -- -- break.
That is why those of us on the right don't love George Bush we like him -- it was good on the war on terrorism but all -- spending.
And all that raising of the debt ceiling he should have been serious about I -- Karl Rove Aqua.
Yes Jason how do you do -- -- defendant your boss was there at the time and said well look you know it was it was a different set of circumstances.
Well I'll bet there is.
He his answer that there was so look at that it's different spending because president Obama's level of spending -- this product of a much higher level of spending and that's the justification for raising the debt ceiling under President Bush.
I mean yes spending is a billion times worse -- President Obama but that doesn't excuse or two wrongs make a right.
Can we talking earlier why not get every congressman to cut X amount of dollars from their budget and then everyone takes responsibility excellent question and the Democrats your listeners to tell us they will not propose cuts and -- the -- You have Nancy Pelosi -- Democrats out there saying.
We promise we won't touch Social Security -- a woman.
That we have deaths as far as the eye can and -- gonna default on the dollar will be worth nothing they refused to take it seriously.
Which is why they keep bringing in the use these blue ribbon Democrat every single congressman to do this and congresswoman.
Then everyone and gets blamed for no one gets -- for actually cutting.
Their own personal budget well here come what's your proposal you are yeah and I would say you okay every congressman has to cut a million dollars or whatever out of your budget -- you're -- you're talking about one half of 1% of all of us -- Well that's what the McConnell and does that's why McConnell -- so brilliant he's -- You Obama you have authority to raise the debt ceiling but for the amount you raise the debt ceiling you have to propose equivalents cop -- -- the real secret here finally -- sorry I just want.
We're finally getting yet Democrats the Dallas what they'll cut which they will not tell -- I have not told that the current cuts necessarily that are spread out equally across each exactly exactly and -- Have to be go to it was -- -- is in debt ceiling.
We're talking he's gonna have to raise -- that suing over the course of the next eighteen months.
More than two trillion dollars he could cut the entire defense department's that's barely one drilling.
-- -- so -- you against a Social Security.
Medicare and Medicaid you half duty cop that much from its 800 billion dollars in the Defense Department budget somewhere in there I see I think it is about -- let's not just cutting them.
-- -- redo in -- park here in the air or don't know I mean it's not Washington.
The real secret here though -- know once cut spec -- since -- running since the fifties we haven't no party has cut spending Republican rat Democrats.
And yet -- coming here they talk sort of tangentially about other things that they wanna company never really address the major issues both parties are -- does that frustrate you.
-- The reason both parties do that is because that's what the people want once the Democrats set up a plan to give the American people free treats three treats you can't you can never take the treats away the Democrats figured that out.
So what this is what I say about working for the senate.
And Republicans know we have to cut spending but they also know if you come up with something -- Ryan plan which way is is pretty weak.
He doesn't even start cutting Social Security for fifteen years and it treated like he's Adolf Hitler so it's a -- a problem with the New York Times with the media.
I suspect most mini fox viewers know but probably not even all fox what viewers know we have to cut Social Security Medicare and Medicaid.
Isn't that the point of this that the the Boehner Obama.
Agreement it seem to be on the table now.
The bigger I think still wants if you ask me -- I and I think President Obama still wants that but let's be specific about what that entailed and of course some people criticize whether or not Social Security Medicare and Medicaid were even on the table -- it was very porous and -- How to Winslet and other reality neither but he he said that there was involved in discussions four trillion dollars in cuts is David Brooks from the New York Times.
The mother of all missed opportunity lifetime you -- -- that for Republican.
Now well I don't think and I don't think Obama would -- to -- his idea of you know cuts are we're going to really -- Madness now to know raising isn't -- fantastic one Social Security was enacted.
The average life expectancy look at the -- -- all the collecting Social Security you can't.
Number and others want -- -- the baby boomers are retiring if we raise taxes on corporate America they're gonna head.
Push those costs on to class under the cuts and he not why aren't.
Exactly they're not hiring right.
They can't stop -- -- I don't even correct that's the argument against that since they won't they'll stop hiring if you raise their taxes they're not hiring now we're buying and quickness yet but they're not appointed election.
What that are sitting on my right -- -- higher to two trillion dollars in fact.
Where things done when you look at congressmen that I think their approval ratings in 19%.
So -- stands out to you and you feel like.
You know that's that's the bastion of the type of leadership that I would want -- -- 11 or two people that you say you hang your hat on say we need we need a hundred of those.
Oh yeah isn't.
From -- is Paul McConnell.
McConnell after this deal he's always been smart I really do like this deal.
Alan west Marco Rubio.
All -- the greats Ron Johnson from Minnesota will be -- goals that's putting the wrong.
Speaking of west he's completely against the McConnell plan.
So they last about completely against this though amid they had 100% it is that your idea so why do you not hiding why do you pick as individuals.
-- -- they are serious.
Tea Party Tea Party -- they really want to cut spending that really principles.
And by the way the ones I may have all named son named all senators are Republicans were against the McConnell slammed -- but it.
You're going to the rollodexes.
However that is because they are strong and they would cut the spending and I'm just saying that they're not us.
So they're not going to win it's going to lose in the senate so Republicans will get blamed for for cutting the people streets.
And the cuts won't go through its a lose lose McConnell plan at least puts the issue on Obama's foot.
He raises the debt ceiling he proposes the -- says McConnell -- potentially put a Republican president at risk down the road.
-- do you are you opening up a can of -- -- Linux.
-- authority to potentially Republicans forced to do these -- and that got.
It's only three times it's not a permits only three separate increases and then that is done -- -- -- wouldn't look at that yeah.
Also you look at that debt ceiling vote apparently consistency isn't a really important value when Washington people are very short memories -- There are members this is why people love that congress and culture.
Check out the brand new book it's called demonic on store shelves now watching soccer and.
I -- -- god I.
Here's about how to do -- moment best seller.
I'm very well I think it's because of my appearances on FOX & Friends I'm so happy to be in studio and not getting up at 4 AM to do it now -- it up a -- Yeah thank you that's good -- -- after the show show C and actually get.
