What -- the president -- Supreme Court justices were not cracking down on political action committees that can spend unlimited amounts of -- on elections.
I don't think American elections should be bankrolled by America's.
Most powerful engines.
Or worse by foreign entities.
They should be decided by the American people.
Big switch today the president all but -- and I -- do not interfere ruling the Obama campaign now urging top fundraisers.
To support a democratic leading super -- that is trying to get the president reelected is the same data -- the president has long said it in that speech pointed out.
Corrupts the political system.
Even some of the president's supporters shouting -- in exile and now Michelle Bachmann here to say.
Told -- so.
Congresswoman joins us right now congresswoman I know you're this many votes and everything so we've received during the time saying this is a major 180 what do you make of it.
Well it is but it's also running on a parallel track with what he did when he ran for president the first time in 2008.
Remember he was the one -- was all for public financing of elections.
And yet it was John McCain that out -- that applied himself to the limits not Barack Obama this is the same thing it's of rain.
Get hot Percy of the first order but it also says another signal they'll put it says is that the president is very nervous about his reelection.
-- as if a billion dollars wasn't enough that he's raising himself he wants to have unlimited amount of money in these new super Max and it's.
Very it very typical of this president but I think it sends a positive signal to people.
Who want to see this be a one term president that we have more than a chance this -- we've got to.
We've got a unifier -- to make sure that he is a one term president.
-- congresswoman you know -- embarrassed of those Supreme Court justices in the well of the house and that.
State of the union speech two years ago -- heels -- an apology.
Well I think clearly and that was and -- night that wasn't his best when we stop remember it was famously Justice Alito who is in the well I was there as well.
And he was mouthing words that said not true about what the president's remarks -- because the president gave an inaccurate statement.
About the ruling which was Citizens United and so the president was against it when it was convenient for his political support.
But now it's convenient for him to have more money but behind his election so I would say that the president.
Needs to admit that he was wrong in the statement that you made a year -- -- And I think second he should admit that hypocrisy.
Cities standing behind I I'm not wait I'm not holding my breath anytime soon to hear him say that.
But it's really the American people are gonna take a look at this president the fact that he is hypocritical and his response and that he was wrong a year ago about the Citizens United decision.
On separately a lot of people looking at today's races congresswoman where Rick Santorum might might pick up.
Some momentum and that is sorely needs in in Missouri and Minnesota.
Not states and delegates and it -- It at stake in states that that is certainly won't necessarily get him -- -- way to the finish line but could could give him some momentum what do you make of that and whether -- He does turn it around tonight.
Why agree there's a recent poll that came out for my home state of Minnesota the PP people.
That had Rick Santorum actually in the lead it was in the march and -- -- was in the lead and also in Missouri as well and you're right -- There won't be delegates that will actually choose the nominee because as you know it's 11144.
-- we all have about a hundred so far that are decided.
But it does give momentum if Rick Santorum can have an X beside his name.
That he won Minnesota and won Missouri I think that will be a tremendous psychological boost and as we've seen in the previous races.
It's a lot of the psychological boost that takes you to the next level and so this could be very positive for him tonight if he's the big winner.
Tom you know -- know.
Go back to conservative.
Action group is meeting this weekend.
And you'll be there are that there are a lot of others who are climbing within the conservative that community about the president's latest budget.
Proposal heavy on tax hikes on the wealthy.
Are you argued did during the race the presidential race -- for years this is a congresswoman.
That this is not.
Advisable to do now or anytime.
Did he is still pushing it even knowing that it would be resisted by Republicans want.
Well because he he's had over three years of on the job training to see -- would you create that.
Increased burdens on the job creator you get -- of private industry now more.
So the president gave the most massive regulatory.
Increases in the history of the united states of Obama care.
With Dodd-Frank and the chief author of the bills to repeal both -- -- egregious.
But also now -- the president wants to take it one step further that's had another burden on the tax burden on the job creators.
I say that because I am I job creator.
And I am a tax lawyer I -- how devastating this is going to be -- spent my entire life and the US federal tax court I've seen the application of high taxes and not destroys jobs.
The president has apparently.
Either not learned as a president or he fails to have the background experience to understand private -- -- That's right I firmly believe that we -- going to see people rejecting this president's policies and mass in November.
And he doesn't deserve unlike what he said at the -- just prior to the Super Bowl on Sunday.
He does not deserve a second term he needed to earn a second term and he's failed to do that by his failed policy.
-- let's go -- -- congressman thank you during the time to see you again.
Good to see you too Neil thanks again Joseph.
