-- on Fox News alert because we're getting reports that some GOP house members who were previously opposed to a bill raising the debt ceiling.
Now are changing to a yes votes after the bill has been modified this morning Texas congressman.
-- go mart joins me live hello congressman.
Have you changed your votes now because of this modification that may include a balanced budget amendment to the Boehner bill.
Where we're getting the the full bill with the language added and I've got to read -- but I've -- dolphin note undecided and now the balanced budget amendment if we can get that done.
People would try before unsuccessfully that's a game changer and -- go back to what you were saying is Stuart you know.
For too long Washington has been run by numbers.
You can't run -- -- by numbers you gotta run my principles.
And is well we've gotten away from principles like basically.
Don't spend more than you bring hand.
Then we have gotten into trouble that were worried about stock market doing this -- you know sell off there was.
We just get back to principles and the stock market should love it in the meantime you know the truth is if the deficit goes up -- not.
Wall Street likes tons of money.
They'll make more money with the debt ceiling going -- so but for me.
It has to be about principles and the balanced budget amendment with a cap on spending is a big deal.
Now I'm also -- the book the bill I've been pushing it ever since I got here I couldn't get it done in the Republican controlled congress.
Zero baseline budget.
If we get zero out all of the automatic increases.
I understand it's nine and a half Reagan -- CBO scores it.
If you just don't automatically increase over ten years which -- now.
Have traded -- dollars now -- so many basic principles we need to follow that we're not.
Now a congressman you've said that in this whole process.
Of negotiating with the speaker that you -- bloodied.
I'm wondering about your battle wounds today.
Are you are you -- feeling loses his time.
A lot of bruises -- I could take time.
To heal and in fact.
If you go back to -- and when I was begging and our conference.
Please read this deal if you -- you did you -- you don't do this in America you don't give one -- have been.
I couldn't get enough in there were some -- things said that hurt.
But I was right I stood on principle than a haze.
So that's I think now a lot -- but you I appreciate where we're standing on principle so what would those conversations and negotiations like with -- speaker did you say to him.
I need a balanced budget amendment and here and then -- vote.
All of my discussions with the speaker.
Have had him as gracious and respectful and and and appreciated that so much it's all the others that -- -- an end of two.
Get -- my editions that we're not always so well appreciated so He himself personally -- he's been.
Very gracious including yesterday evening when -- did -- called -- principal's office both.
I appreciated him looking me in the and I'll look him in the and and He said -- need to ask for your help.
Okay -- -- right now on and just before I let you go your in the navy category.
If the language represented balanced budget that is.
-- and I realize.
From what they've said the language is not going to be good enough to say it will be this specific balanced budget amendment doesn't actually saying there's gonna have caps on spending.
That just means likely just got a first down perhaps if it if it follows through right and we got a ways to go to get to the goal -- package you pick up this win and move forward.
If if this works out like we know Iowa congressman -- go -- We'll let you go -- -- harness and we'll see what happens this afternoon well I don't show they're always in a place you don't see you back.
