Senator nice to see -- Nice to see room I know you're opposed to the president's health care and I know you know at the Supreme Court decided and no you know that -- house is gonna vote on it this week.
But the United States senate dominated by the Democrats is there anything the Republicans in the senate intended to or -- Well that the -- -- time -- -- -- I have to say that we do with the selections of course.
It's gonna determine whether we have to go this awful health care bill or whatever repeal and replace.
And I believe the way that has to happen to us from -- world leader elected president and I think we'll bring in -- enough Republicans took over control of the senate.
That point -- -- chairman of the finance committee and of course.
Tournament bigger schools would be straight just moments ago.
Have you -- off.
Senate majority leader Harry Reid since the Supreme Court decision has he said anything at all -- health care.
How much I think the Democrats related to the healthcare bill was.
-- to be constitutional however that's.
That's maybe to swell of opinion because actually when the Chief Justice basically called the Medicare expansion unconstitutional.
That was a very very big part of it not protecting and I think -- -- on one really who was predicting that.
If I had my way yes I would have -- the individual mandate unconstitutional.
But I would have certainly said that you can't force the states take more more Medicaid.
And when they know that the -- -- I'm going to be there in the future.
Does governor Romney said to get out of the -- Just to step that is in his his assistant there has most campaign.
-- leader said that.
That it is not a -- and and the governor come -- says its attacks -- is getting hammered both sides whether it's attacks are not attacks but he eight.
How does he walk out of it.
Slated flip flop was really on the part of the -- because the president and his own solicitor general argued that was attacks all the way through it there.
Legislative process here the president -- -- it was penalty.
And then all of a sudden it's -- tax would to think they.
The Republicans approach towards individual mandate.
Now they're trying to say well it's just really a penalty but unfortunately.
The Chief Justice.
The majority of members of the Supreme Court held that in this attacks.
And therefore that means that.
Well if you talked about attacks that means about 77%.
Of people learning lesson 120000 dollars you're gonna have to pay him by the way.
10% of the people earning less and 23000.
Dollars a year of the poverty level.
We're going to have to pay that -- as well it's going to be a devastating thing for those who.
Are not earning a lot of money in our society and the they're trying to get a vote away from -- by saying no more for Leo on the penalty you know Supreme Court themselves tax -- attempt.
What one that this the news of the day of course the President Obama wants to X extend the bush tax cuts for those who make under there 50000 dollars -- year.
Vice President Biden is -- if -- he says that the GOP is deliberately.
Hurting the economy.
Your response to the vice president and also to the.
And that's what's gonna hurt the economy.
If we actually go to the largest tax increase -- what thing.
-- -- tax would get my guess what -- in this Wall Street Journal called text and if we go out of that's going to be the highest tax increase the history of this country that's been hit him just about every book.
President -- today that he's at eighteen tax cuts for people -- similarly -- throughout a number of the tax cuts since he's been president is he not cutting taxes for some Americans.
Anybody who believes that justice looked -- the record 500 billion dollars in tax increases alone.
In the involved here bill.
There that are.
Their whole goal was to get more money so they can spend more money and claim that they're doing a lot of good for the American people as they were a threat in the bankruptcy -- his father today.
And I that was so.
-- weren't around our national -- -- -- 103% of the federal poverty.
But the GDP.
Think about that 103% of GUK Spain.
Which is in real trouble.
It's like what the best of 7%.
-- That test yourself.
You know elements -- that cares about that we expect the very busy lame duck activity here on Capitol Hill after the election.
There -- issues had to do with the bush tax cuts extension.
There's that question about the debt ceiling whether that's -- he raised -- pushed up against it.
Do this now -- not all the Republicans and Democrats that working on this right now before election -- six months.
-- get ahead of the game instead it was the wait -- after election.
Republicans I think are willing to do that -- are willing to go with the largest tax increase in history might just start talking about to start moving the ball well.
I think we should we've actually said look.
Let's put -- over three year during which we really concentrate all of the efforts of the congress.
On reform in this.
Awful tax -- And getting things under control.
I think that makes sense I think well only six Democrats now seem to be saying that makes sense and I think there'll be more.
And six as time goes on I don't think they wanna get to text to get themselves they know that if they keep holding on to try to -- ever even -- -- The senator from New York who will support the present regardless because this position in the senate.
Said that he thinks 250000.
Is is is is.
You know to -- that they're really ought to go higher well.
Yeah I know what they're trying to do that kind of -- analyst -- everybody over certain level.
The 250000 dollars it's high percentage.
Of small businesses.
Where we've -- if we're gonna get this economy back under control.
Where the jobs are created it's gonna have to be in that particular area you start hitting them with more Texans who are these businesses are going to have real -- I just had.
Representatives from the nursing home ministry in my office.
As you know they live on a very small margin.
And they know that it's gonna get smaller they know it's going to be very different and yet they're providing services for people who can't help themselves but what if they could.
Where I have trouble is people who can't help themselves the world that we get too far too many of those on the government all right -- some estimate that.
A round -- joint tax committee estimates of around 51% of all households don't -- and out of income taxes.
You know that's there's something wrong with that there's something.
Thanks nice to be with you.
