Let's start -- The much -- budget passed the house.
A major focus for down.
Almost every time -- top Democrat goes out it's now -- Romney and Ryan budget.
Who do you see this -- -- pivotal point for this election it's among the -- -- election what did you.
You had a Democrat do you want to put America on a path to decline and -- at the status quo we don't want.
We want and -- -- When -- get back prosperity.
-- all the fiscal.
Horizon now we knew that the Democrats do.
We -- we offer solutions.
That they were gonna -- solutions.
But we feel that we -- moral and legal obligation.
That if we don't like to direct presence in the country if we don't want that Christ we we should -- more importantly we have a law.
Congress but the budget every year by April.
We think we should outlaw.
The senate for three years today.
I don't follow that law.
The president has given -- -- and never in one of those but as you propose any solutions is.
What excited to do.
Is offered no solutions are -- and wait for Republicans are hours then divide distort racked.
They say they didn't have to come for bush and senate at their under the debt deal.
And that they're following the law that they didn't need -- vote.
I don't know what.
The Brett would be any.
Small budget control it but you can collect every small -- it it is not a budget.
Not even close to it.
And it is being used or unused for the fact -- it out for three years after the jobs so.
Does this election and become about big issues to -- -- -- -- A big choice -- -- have a choice.
And we're really sort of as a country that -- -- -- fork in the road.
And -- decisions our government's going to make in the next couple of -- will set trajectory of America for a generation.
So we really will be making it this fall what kind of treatment.
Of people that we.
Do we want traditional American idea it'll be opportunities -- of the -- we want -- on the president.
What we have -- cradle to grave welfare a year in.
Which inevitably as you can hear ends up with an Akron.
The president was out popular student loans he says your budget cuts back on pilgrims.
And essentially said.
That Republicans are turning their backs on him well I think every week that president pander to -- groups in this country in order to try.
Build an election coalition to try when election.
Congress for example dramatic increase in spending over the last number of years and what -- -- his corresponding dramatic increase in tuition inflation.
What about it does is accused programs where are we just on top of that dramatic in usually -- with the president's -- apparently were not.
Increasing spending as much -- the president for -- -- we're keeping the -- elements where are.
Because we're worried about what -- does he tuition.
We don't think players consistently.
Financed tuition inflation that has nothing to help students and harder for people afford an education problem.
So it's wrong when he says he.
Worries that don't don't let.
About -- about our numbers where I'm telling things that are that are dramatic.
And how do you get through.
And perhaps how does Mitt Romney threw to the American people to.
Tell your story on the big -- we give people the truth.
We tell them where are we tell people here's how we -- applying this country's founding principles to the problems the day.
To offer a solution to get a cut back on track and -- we really feel we old country.
The right to choose what they want -- We don't like direction -- -- -- look at the economy looking for a look at you the first time in this country.
We know without a doubt all the economic -- -- -- -- -- hit an inferior standard didn't.
We have an obligation to prevent that from happening in the country and we're going to do it.
When you're ready for Mitt Romney.
Or you pushing the grandmother over the court.
I've been having -- -- for so we're.
It would seem to.
Read it and offered their own solutions and and compromise and debate the merits of her ideas.
What the president's party it is chosen.
Was past my.
Equipment you -- congressman and speaker in 20092000.
-- -- For all the regulations in place and we offer solutions they -- to distort the dollar fine.
You and guy in his truck from their field.
You campaigned with Mitt Romney in Wisconsin.
Spent a number of days on the trail with them.
He embrace your budget is that -- full embrace what's the behind the scenes in the talk of him and your budget.
I respect people to embrace every little.
Decimal points every little spreadsheet line item.
But clearly he's embraced the kinds of reforms that we're talking about that are -- Save and strengthen Medicare.
To prevent our debts are from occurring to reform the tax code to get jobs back in the economy and stop all the -- can't stop the corporate welfare what the president is doing.
He's saying -- take more money from hard working Americans -- -- bring Washington.
And and he and his cronies and -- they get to pick the winners lose -- that doesn't grow the economy.
-- -- -- And we reject that and we want to get back to the traditional American idea of entrepreneurial -- a free enterprise limited government.
A system of upper mobility a system where people have a chance of making the best of their lives.
And not -- system -- they have to hope that Washington -- them among the list of winners when and one minute.
While the Democrats say that you are choosing winners and losers and you're not even choosing yet because a lot of cuts that you have.
That are not in this budget ethically.
Haven't really been an -- and I are we're very clear and we have hundreds of where we're really show how we -- point three trillion dollars and on the taxes on that what the waste of money going to have hearings for the next years that it can go through all of this.
Here's the deal we don't want to cut a deal on Republican Democrat in some back room and tell the American people what we site.
We recognized in public and an up front we're.
Some Democrats agreed with -- Let's get rid of all the loopholes and special giveaways and others let's start with tiny comers who part most of their money -- -- -- them most of the others are -- tonight.
And -- lower tax rates for everybody.
Lower temperatures and lower temperatures -- -- In exchange for broadening the base and and and reducing tax shelters.
We are going to hold -- hearing and we means committee.
Just took to discover which -- -- the key.
And not just what loopholes in the tax code but who -- them.
And we think limit them -- from hiring comers sort of more their income as separate taxation but but you get a -- and -- not -- -- -- -- -- That 80% of the businesses in America they file their taxes as individuals.
So when the president proposed to raise the top tax rate to about 45%.
Those small businesses which create most of our new jobs so when he talk about the Buffett rule for people over one million dollars.
That's a very attractive thing in the polls is a very attractive in the polls that political tactic it -- for about eleven hours proposed in spending.
It's not even a drop in the bucket.
But it it clearly is is meant again a political -- -- -- -- -- present basically trying to divide the country.
And how do you counter that.
Look I come from the school who was my political.
We should not be speaking to people in the country as -- there is stuck in some class or -- in their current Asian life and the government to help them cope with it.
We left our -- those cup site upon this country was an opportunity.
People should not be stuck.
In their station in life or in class we want to society of upper mobility we want to move people from welfare to work until like prosperity.
For everybody has access to equal opportunities and to make the most of the kind of country.
-- -- that worked for the common good that you're the American idea -- -- and that and we want to reclaim.
-- -- here.
What's the top foreign policy concern in your mind.
I'm -- is probably the -- -- in my mind right now I think Iran has done a very good job of planning.
The international community on the sanctions have not work nearly as well as we hoped because we haven't had all of the complaints from some of our our partners around the world.
And for Randy nuclear weapon then -- have probably nuclear arms race in a very dangerous corner of the world and at least.
I'm into a lot of traveling but most -- -- -- To learn about all the threats to security there that and he's probably the greatest threat there's a cyber threat that worry about and -- military.
On the president's budget really got our military.
We're gonna need that is about small well in the beginning of the last century.
In the industry and draw down Marines and on the -- In my judgment will structure arteries are so much more than -- Shrek and so I think that that in my weakness and if we do not.
Reclaim our -- to shrink doctrine.
And we will lead with weakness and I think -- field.
My other countries China Russia and the -- but you know honestly hold our our interests or or per share.
President Obama and Vice President Biden are -- signaling they're on Iran's part on their foreign policy record.
And -- enemy number.
We'll look at the -- The sound of the bodies -- reset on Russia that didn't work to look at her right there are still moving toward a nuclear weapon.
Look at what's going on there -- still shelling -- people look at the fact that we had a green shoots green revolution in Iran.
Where there was a -- And there have been the reelection was written there was a chance to speak to freedom movement in Iran and the president signed.
So to me that -- had a terrible.
The world are much more dangerous than ever before in that time we have all these -- dangerous threat on the horizon they want to -- to here in a series -- tough choice that would would you.
Advocate military action no I wouldn't but I think.
You shouldn't take things off a number that you want strong hand but I think we should do more -- -- to that.
Opposition movement into the there -- a lot of things we can do.
Team to give moral support.
To those people were trying to stop to tyrannical dictator and by the way.
His dictator I think was coddled too much by -- side.
I mean not by American foreign policy -- a person who helped Iran who helped shut separate weapons into Hezbollah.
Idea guy in killing -- people.
And they're going to be a lot would you do to help those are structurally you'll hear how big thing for a while you play him -- I -- -- -- about -- About the economy and -- future.
I'm not a fact that everybody knows we can't keep spending money we don't have.
We can't keep a government that -- forty dollar spent.
That threatening our economy today really threatening our children's future that -- -- you've heard.
People say I don't know that it Mitt Romney fully embraces your budget and schools goes whole hog and holds up.
Paul Ryan is an example this is what we're gonna do.
That series of vulnerability and some analysts' minds that.
He welcomes -- tax.
What do you think it all the time look.
I -- equipment.
Do we want to these kind of problems.
Mean that are we gonna.
Put our finger in the wind and go the polls or we have leaders trying to change the -- we are gathering for general.
It's what's going on here for -- we want to prevent that happening.
Because if you haven't techcrunch that the people at the first network of people in the government the most what is -- -- -- from Iran do you hear that -- your leadership and I hear from Mitt Romney.
I want to tackle this country's problems the president has not -- field in his leadership.
He went back he went back on promises he's not a -- -- -- or that we thought he would be talked about hope and change.
Now he's trying to divide the country different groups in order to -- the country.
From a failed power and -- from Enron.
Executives making a person who sees that carry -- countries and right now.
And is willing and able to actually provide leadership to prevent our country from going down very dark path.
Sam lane what's important.
The most important thing and nightmares -- night and being.
What's that are seven -- girl.
-- -- Attraction on to -- soccer everybody's.
-- soccer -- Night night my middle guy can play under.
Guy the young -- got prequel mr.
The -- and you spend it.
Well how's the bouncing.
And you know.
That account for serving in government for being content.
I'm here -- we.
-- network elected and -- tunnel but there.
-- He really -- How how does it feel like he's seen evidence that from the -- -- -- -- Obama -- practicing out.
And how -- -- factor in the year.
The question I get from people.
-- I don't see how he can separate.
From your life withers I'll answer.
It looked so.
Might like I think most people.
Is what I'm Liu -- -- moral you're moral compass.
People ask that question because I think they -- they want to know.
How it factors in I think and it for you -- -- courts.
How can it up.
And let me.
-- -- -- -- mutual friend introduced.
I knew she was.
I was always I was an admirer of hers from the -- and got out a buddy of mine who knew her -- And you are on year.
-- We'll be twelve.
-- so is she okay with.
Possibilities beyond -- -- you know we haven't had to -- -- we would have liked her but we've never had kind of -- -- Like -- to run for president last summer.
We spent a couple of weeks going through all -- that talking about it.
But she was on board.
You with whatever -- decided not that it wasn't the right decision for for very.
I was single banking accounts and act like and 28 years old so.
What you're -- and when we got married.
-- recovers from.
-- -- It is.
An -- -- -- that it might question that when you hear.
They -- on a short list for Mitt Romney.
What goes through your mind.
Doing my job I can't.
If they ask me to consider -- and -- but -- months away from that kind of decision being as far as trying to.
And meanwhile I'm trying to get this budget moving through -- we're we're doing what we call reconciliation.
In this case were using reconciliation to cut spending.
I'm what it is designed to -- on in the middle of doing my job imminently but if you are Mitt Romney wouldn't you like Paul Ryan to steer this budget through the house.
Instead of being monogram.
I know I'm not been on an audience -- question.
This big job -- -- No I like I think I can make a big difference to me when.
I'm not decided against right from the senator -- -- leadership -- house.
Because I think we have -- -- on our horizon and I feel like I've played pretty comfortable entrapment that from happening in the American.
Will the American people get down into the weeds this general election and -- you know more than you think I really believe.
Look I've done over 500.
I think people hungry for facts -- to be talked to like dole and her two children all those and -- pushing.
Elderly woman off cliffs and -- that really working.
I don't know in New York 126.
But I also think that there are we didn't do it -- -- on the job explaining exactly what we're for an event out second.
It failed because we were afraid of talking about our proposals are ideas.
And Howard -- written in this case Medicare.
And how the -- and Medicare law.
But border fifteen unelected unaccountable bureaucrats in charge of cutting Medicare in ways that will -- -- care for current seniors so I think when people are back.
About what obamacare does the Medicare and how we proposed to prevent that rationing -- the program.
When the facts are stacked up on an even keel meaning an object of an -- both we win.
Those who you know -- distortions against our Medicare plan -- rated do you lie of the year last year reckless act dot org.
So I really think when when push comes to show when the dust settles.
The American people in the center right country that we are you -- clear choices to make you want the American idea of the opportunity society with the safety.
Already looked after Iran -- debt declined a -- I don't think people -- gonna vote for and I feel pretty good -- what's Mitt Romney's biggest vulnerability.
All the money gonna come against him from Barack Obama to try and -- and divide this country.
And under traditional presidential campaign the old system of public.
That I'm not positive -- heard of like.
-- Kerry bush were a 180 million dollars spent between those two -- together.
The president says he's gonna rain and a billion dollars in like eight or ten.
Wisconsin's -- That's what -- vulnerabilities it's tough to keep up with an incumbent president.
-- fly around the country campaign.
Raising and spending a billion dollars against him trying to buy in toward -- country -- from a record.
That's tough deal that's why it was important that his primary was settled.
-- it around and -- ball.
Indian government Daniels said.
One time that it should be the town and that social -- should be put on the back for.
We think that well I think the economic issues aren't front.
Socialist are are and proper.
Religious freedom and has obviously come up and it was going to be -- -- but it is an economic based election because the economy imperil.
And not only did we really ugly numbers -- today.
But businesses -- hiring because of all this government impose uncertainty not to mention that we got -- -- -- horizon.
That the president nitrogen effectively doing nothing making it worse and so yeah I think -- I think that would -- Republican.
Social issues on the back for a while I think that's what yeah I think in the net earned in the minds most Americans.
The time you.
