The hour now developing today in Washington senate Republican set to unveil a new budget plan today.
That will certainly spark a new fight over how Washington spends your money.
Meanwhile some house Republicans are pushing for greater spending cuts now do Democrats have a problem with that.
Democratic senator mark Warner's -- on the senate budget in banking committees it's are welcome here to America's -- it was nice to have you back.
Thanks no thanks hadn't gone did you have an issue -- Republicans spend it or cutting more spending rather.
Well I I have a.
Problem with the fact that when you actually make a deal.
You're supposed to adhere to -- the deal.
You know a year ago we put the country through this.
You know what I thought was a travesty.
That we almost shut down the government when -- lost America's credit rating.
When we almost defaulted on our debt.
And we finally came to an agreement that said let's go hadn't put in place a budget for the next year and a half we have a budget signed into law it was called the budget control -- All the committees know how much they want to spend.
And now when we need to be actually building trust we've got at least some group -- the house saying no.
That law that we signed last August we're gonna disregard that agreement and try to cut a new deal.
I consider what I understand your argument you're making get I got -- ideals of the -- I got about why not go for more.
I'm that you think your voters back in Virginia would be offended if you cut into the fifteen trillion dollar debt.
Listen I as somebody who put together the gang of six -- somebody who said.
Let's go ahead and have a balanced plan cut back spending -- and more revenues and tax reform cut four trillion dollars off.
I would rather let's get out of this kind of tit for tat.
Back and forth political stuff I don't think we need to take the year off just -- as a presidential election year.
We should start now on avoiding the next train wreck it's gonna come at the end of the year when we.
In the bush tax cuts when we have -- -- come about let's go ahead and put together not a little newborn -- there let's put together a comprehensive ten year plan that would knock at least for a.
I saw tiger's standards half or Wholesale Club but that's question was whether or not you think your voters back in Virginia would be offended if you've got more government spending into it right now.
I you know that -- is swallowing up senator.
-- -- fact we had four billion dollars a day to.
Again what we saw last year is that any.
Reduce the deficit is going to require cutting spending.
Reforming our entitlement programs and -- and some more revenue.
When I don't hear from our friends in the house.
Is a willingness to say let's go hadn't reopened the revenue side of the question as well as the cutting side if -- -- what we'll say we'll watch a strong Republicans understood.
-- another issue that Republicans are -- -- you guys on every day as that the senate has not produced a budget more than a thousand days.
What are -- -- house when I say that is was.
Remember all those folks who said.
A year or so go read the bill read the bill read the bill with a bill that we passed last year the budget control laughter it's it's -- -- the law by the president.
Is a budget for both last year and this year.
We've got a budget in place we don't have a long term budget we have a budget in place for this year it's called the budget control lack.
I would think the guys who are complaining on that ought to actually read the bill what -- -- the past that there.
When the bill is passed it was signed into law last August it was one of the reasons how we avoided via an eventual.
Non default last August -- put -- -- in place -- like a budget in place not only from last year but for this year as well -- -- and the other side says they says -- that they say you're afraid of I'm going on the record because voters will -- you OK what do you say it is.
What I say to that is read the bill we got a budget in place and signed into law what would what is not in place is the long term plan to reduce the deficit.
We've laid out our plan it was based on some -- it had 45 senators equal number Democrats Republicans.
A hundred members of the house let's go ahead and bring that up.
And I thought all the folks who screamed -- both clintons actually put their money where their mouth is and say I'm willing to vote on a real -- CNN senior deals with the evidence and -- spending.
The center hi I'm fine I appreciate you coming on that I -- at a time but certainly the issue is not at a time so come on back soon okay and then Mark Warner -- -- Virginia.
