Fox News alert on a new fight breaking out between the president and the speaker of the house.
It started -- house speaker John Boehner today expressed his frustration with president Obama's leadership in Washington saying the president has essentially given up on governing.
To focus instead on his reelection campaign.
I've got my share of disappointments of this year at this point the president night couldn't come to an agreement to on the big deal.
That we couldn't.
Pass some stronger legislation.
In the house from so my -- colleagues.
About nothing has disappointed me more.
Of -- what's happened over the last five weeks.
To watch the president that states give up on governing.
Give up on bleeding.
And spend full time campaign.
Then moments ago the White House firing back spokesman Jay -- sending out a Twitter message that reads quote.
As -- -- meaning the president United States said He welcomes GOP ideas that would grow the economy put people back to work now.
And going on to say quote dear mr.
speaker you refused to hold a vote on the jobs act a mainstream bill that would boost the economy and jobs now that's legislating.
Joining me now David web host of the David -- -- -- co-founder of the Tea Party 365.
And Sally Collins founder of movement vision dot or.
Our and yeah there.
And you know you heard Ed Henry the top of the show saying look the president is about to go out there.
And they're gonna have this vote in the senate he's trying to shore up people's belief that this is the real deal this is in a campaign effort this jobs bill.
And he's gonna get ready to blame the Republicans -- it doesn't go through.
Meantime let -- start with this -- because -- He sparring with Boehner.
The Democrats in the senate are not they're not on board yet that the reports -- He doesn't have a -- from the Democrats yet it's not really just between the president and the Republicans -- house.
I mean first of all to hear John Boehner saying that's when his is the party that said -- number one priority this year when millions of Americans are unemployed.
They're number one priority is to make sure Barack Obama is out of office -- 22 -- that the mission outside that's not exactly an analytical and well being but let's -- that's not exactly governing either right that's campaign to.
And -- this is why Americans are so fed up with Washington on both sides you think Obama's poll ratings are low.
Congressional Republicans have even more -- yeah proposed.
I'll bet you -- but that Michael is is it disingenuous of the president to be making this a fight between himself and the house Republicans when He doesn't have his own party support I mean look I'm not gonna look I'm not gonna defend the fact that we have a lot of Democrats in the caucus who really shouldn't be Democrat.
The larger point is the president.
Keeps trying I mean He has created -- biggest created -- bill here it is mostly tax cuts.
As a Republican ideas last I checked but the Republicans can't get on board with anything the president supports because they simply want to see him lose.
More than they wanna see -- that with the theme He kept signing today David that it when his -- that the Republicans suddenly it not favor tax cuts which He is including in this bill for certain portions of the population.
That there are parts of the bill that Republicans can support but what Sally fails to mention.
Are the taxes built into the bill over a trillion in the next ten years alone.
The fact is that you're right the Democrats in the senate won't take up -- bill we're with the video in the miscommunication with the email that went out yesterday.
President attacking Republicans but Harry Reid saying that we won't have a vote.
The problem -- having second thought yeah.
Area gonna have parallel -- -- to the woodshed by the president I'm sure it on the folder in person.
The fact is this is reelection.
This his campaign in the house has passed bills that.
Our goal is what we saw today -- -- reelection -- Carter has -- and -- I'm really glad to hear Sally support every president getting a second term.
Because I can't remember the Democrats who objected to Bush's second term.
The fact is it's the goal of any political party to have the other one out so really let's get off the stupid talking points.
And -- to the fact that -- -- had jobs and recovery not more stimulus and spend.
On millionaires and billionaires but also on folks making more than 20250000.
So He was asked by -- today.
Because that now the senate is saying what we -- -- change it get rid of the taxes on 20250 and just raise them on millionaires and billionaires.
So you the president was asked is that something that you could swallow.
And I -- played the president's answer and then we're gonna play right after that what the president said about raising taxes in a recession back in -- watch this.
The approach this.
The senate is taking uncomfortable with.
In order to deal with the jobs bill.
We're still gonna need to reform this tax code.
To make sure that we're closing loopholes last thing you want to do is to raise taxes in the middle of recession.
Because that would just suck up.
Take more demand the economy and put businesses.
In a -- home.
Now I can know about millionaires and billionaires back and I don't had a lot and bush upgrade and look it.
Grover Norquist the conservative anti tax champion.
Has said that allowing tax breaks to expire doesn't have quite count as attacks and so that's that's mr.
anti tax himself that He has summit in -- surtax on millionaires over 5% -- in the market finest look 80% of Americans think we need to raise taxes on the rich to drop its outlook as well all the didn't believe President Obama a present Obama also -- or not wasn't -- wasn't -- -- be held the fire to cut spending and to cut the deficit -- Republicans have created this situation where they've said.
You you you can't win here you have to cut spending you have to cut the deficit which incidentally economists agree in a recession economy that's the -- you like it or not.
Need government to suspend -- -- are sort.
Republicans say got to do it.
Obama has to trust that they want cut run up class they wanna put money into the -- the middle class -- taxes ideologically inconsistent I mean you should do before spending.
And no taxes no new taxes.
Is that consistent because -- -- the president is saying let's spend.
And let's hike taxes one of which would put money into the economy -- which -- take -- out.
Well actually it doesn't either that takes money out I'm sorry it does one of the to redistribute wealth from one quarter to and other anyway.
It takes well I think LP and a farewell -- there's not enough if you as our president says if you had a money if you taxed by the numbers -- the talking points if you taxed by the numbers everybody.
In all those categories including -- 100000 -- you could not do anything about the real problem.
We have a spending prop.
We don't -- He would not and don't like the rich.
Business Ellison is simple one of the government and -- millions and millions that we wanna take I don't.
I don't -- begrudge them because every American wants to achieve their old level of success.
-- weather yours and does -- they want their chance to get their look we're seeing people across the country in Wall Street and elsewhere come out by the women not just liberals have been hearing from Tea Party folks have been hearing from libertarians.
People are frustrated the economy grew between 09 and 010.
80% of that growth went to corporate profits 1% went to wages and.
Hungry world that they did not immediately got into an art editing -- richest 1% -- and they're back on -- -- and it's Florida counties I got from growth doesn't go to get corporate profits and I'm getting the red rat in my -- which means something happening and it's not your -- -- -- big trouble Kelly aren't as they can go so much fun they.
