And coming up later this week the president will pack up his teleprompter and head on down Pennsylvania Avenue.
The lay out a so called jobs plan before a joint session of congress but yesterday in Detroit Michigan.
He previewed his strategy and wouldn't you know what it involves spending your money take a quick sneak -- I don't wants to give everything away right here.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- But.
But -- a little bit.
And bridges across this country.
Let me really don't.
Private companies with the equipment in the manpower to do the building.
We've got more than one million unemployed construction workers ready to get very right now.
Good -- to be done.
Workers -- to do it.
Boy that sounds awfully familiar now doesn't it.
That's because we've heard all this before it was called the stimulus and -- we learned anything from that trillion dollar disaster.
-- -- the government cannot buy its way out of the jobs crisis joining me now with more on the president's speech is somebody who -- Well this weekend that He may not even attend the address on Thursday South Carolina senator Jim dement seder welcome back.
Thank you Sean I am sick and tired of speeches the president told us not only the stimulus but obamacare would help the economy.
Dodd-Frank mortgage bailouts.
This is probably the -- speech of of various kinds that He said is his job speech.
I wanna see something writing and what the president is talking about is more of the same.
And frankly over August I had a chance to talk to dozens of businesses.
Nothing -- He is talking about now relates to what they're telling me I but it was supposed to be you know after the vacation.
All the hype was he's gonna give a speech -- that address the nation he's -- lay out his plan.
-- say well email lay it out incrementally we may not get the whole plan.
Concepts it'll come this Thursday I don't think didn't know how -- we have to wait for the plan.
And is it got to be specific and if it's not -- why are we have a joint session of congress.
He needs to write it down we just went through this with the -- -- and He said He might consider this He might consider that.
We never got anything in writing in He never agreed to anything and so.
Spent in the evening listening to him talk about things that are never gonna end up in legislation.
Or if they do they'll be very different.
Is pretty frustrating a lot of people are hurting -- you know our cup are our economy is in serious danger the debt is getting worse every day.
And the president is just giving speeches and mostly campaigning.
So I think Republicans like we saw in the for a mom that I was part of yesterday.
Are talking about specific job plans things that have proven to work in the past.
And I think that's what we need to do is -- to point out that our view our vision of what makes America work.
Is completely opposite than.
President -- -- we'll look at how bad it is zero jobs created zero weighed down we were revised downward June and July numbers by significant amount.
African American teen unemployment is nearly 50% in this country.
What what's missing here you know I've always like the light goes on there's a little light and then of good friend of ours is that points and says -- And there's a sense of urgency I've had about every job that I've ever worked and -- -- construction the years I worked in the restaurant business -- -- -- radio and TV urgency.
The president's take at this time it's two and a half years later another speech on jobs but we may not be specific.
I don't think it.
We'll look at his numbers on the economy what are they thinking even politically here besides the attack against.
People like yourself -- me and Tea Party member.
Well the president and apparently does not understand why the American economy is so unique in so exceptional why we're so prosperous as a nation.
He's trying to micromanage our economy -- little temporary targeted whether it be payroll tax cut or will give you 5000 hire people.
-- it cost the company 65000.
Dollars a year to hire a 40000 dollar year person.
You're not gonna do that unless you're gonna do it anyway.
Our economy is different it's based on individuals taking risk and return for getting rewards he's made the risk higher of the rewards -- or.
That's what's wrong with our economy frankly He doesn't understand it.
And what we have to do is minimize the damage try to stop the spending and hope the American free enterprise system will survive until we can get another president right.
For 2010 the Tea Party movement that a big impact biggest mid term election in.
In seventy years.
Prior to that election to the Democrats tried to portray.
The Tea Party as extreme.
As racist they were called every name in the book.
An -- revisiting this I mean you have the comments some of Hoffa.
They that you know basically we're gonna go war with these sons of bitches.
In the in the last week.
You know Joseph Biden says the barbarians from the gates.
You're the only ones keep in the barbarians from the gates.
They can go straight to hell that terrorists the real enemy is the Tea Party movement.
What is the strategy.
Or thinking behind this considering it was not really effective in twenty -- -- well the president.
Democrats are trying to demonize the Tea Party movement and then then everything Republicans do just like they said my forum was a Tea Party form.
Tea parties weren't involved with organizing the forum.
Everyone who disagrees with the president now has a Tea Party member of the problem He has -- -- on.
60% of Americans think we're on the -- -- wrong track 70% think we need to balance the budget.
The president is taking on the American people in American voters.
They disagree with him and he's calling them all Tea Party members if they don't agree with him so -- He can't run on his record he's got a demonize the active citizens who are taking him along on and I expect to hear a whole lot more -- it.
Just like we heard from Jimmy Hoffa for -- if a Republican or conservative that said what was said at that meeting.
We would part -- to taken to task but every media outlet in the country last last question are you confident that the Republicans are gonna unite.
Against the president's spending agenda.
Are you confident.
That we're not gonna have some of the problems we saw on the 2011 budget and the more recent budget deal where Republicans were competing against each other.
Was Sean a lot of that depends on how active and how -- the American people -- -- Because I'm not completely confident -- when you put out a payroll tax cuts in these other things that every American wants a little more change in their pocket.
It's very tempting for Republicans to go with that.
In lieu of a real jobs plan so it'll play out but it's -- it's gonna depend all really how active the American people aren't saying no.
Let's have a real jobs program that works for America.
All right senator good to see you thanks that they want us thank -- at coming up.
