-- standing ovation on the floor the house doesn't happen often does it.
Pennsylvania congressman Mike Kelly Republican bringing colleagues to their feet.
Where they stirring speech on small business in America and what it faces.
There's some of that.
Not Democrat jobs or Republican jobs are independent jobs -- -- -- jobs.
-- -- -- If you want this country deprived.
They're not just survive but please -- play the game by the rules to stop this ridiculous mockery of what it is that we do here in this town.
We are -- -- of -- -- the American people and you know what all this does it adds a layer after layer after layer of cost.
And that cost results may play for by the American consumer.
You wanna have more revenues.
That let the tide rise for all boats.
Be able to not only.
Survive but to thrive.
I urge all my colleagues on both sides this is not a left -- right issue this is an American issue.
I urge you to rise today if they vote for HR 4078 let's let America get back to work.
-- -- -- Right.
In the spirit of the Olympic Games you hear USA from both sides Rich -- international review -- -- powers is a columnist for the daily -- both are Fox News contributors are understand the US a chance for both Republicans and Democrats.
And I over the last summer saw about what did you think about his best basic message.
Rich does very a rousing speeches basic messages right it's not only regulation that's holding back business in the current environment and a very soft economy.
Which makes music makes even less sense to pile new regulations on top of business to make the the the job of hiring people.
Even more difficult than it is and a -- -- inspiration has just been setting records on that front.
What he's saying is that they're they're being held back and you wanna create jobs.
Was his quote hang -- hey hey hang up.
Take -- heavy -- off the threat of America's job creators and let them grieve.
Here's and you don't think this is why did you say it was a phony it -- was not in his.
We're well I think the fact that there that Democrats were cheering and I I don't it is phony issue I think it's a funny partisan issue the idea that.
That only Republicans but want to to cut regulations of the some top Democrats still light and regulating.
I think it's a phony issue.
Regularly skewered Rudy has started in the problem of agree with his premise then that the regulations -- -- too much.
I mean if you know -- he's small business don't worry you'll always hear nightmare stories of what they have to go through because of government regulations and how much money have.
Time they have to spend on it.
As so why I don't disagree that that -- this I'm Riley has -- asking what -- wide isn't the White House do something about that.
-- deployments above 8%.
Yeah I'm not -- actually in terms of that.
That would connections unemployment I'm not a -- that's a -- I'd buy that argument I don't think that that is what is driving our unemployment and it's a much bigger issue.
A global issue and back then just cutting regulations but you know.
I I don't disagree the idea that some regulations on small businesses need to be cut Santana I think we need more regulations on you know -- -- -- -- to take the first that point because you agree with what reducing.
-- and that's what I hear when it happens sometimes.
Duck under -- -- -- -- my side here -- -- unlike -- Obama administration the first 26 months I think -- 75 major.
Costing forty billion dollars and why in a really soft economy would you want to be layering more burdens.
On the business that makes no sense and that's why I think Republicans are very strong case four regulatory moratorium.
Stopping -- regulations until unemployment is at a decent level again 6% isn't that bill that constant -- was promoting on the floor right.
By the way Mike Kelly went to university Notre Dame it was on a football and academic scholarship that covers -- all the dealership in Pennsylvania.
I was a Chevrolet Cadillac dealership so many examples he uses that 11100 page that the government uses to determine.
Who's a qualified.
Borrower for alone.
And he went on to say that they they renovate a local baseball park but the mirrors in the restrooms or a quarter of an inch too low.
Which would seem to indicate that they.
I just install them correctly had to think about it put it back up again but this is the kind of thing that's driving people crazy -- -- today.
I think that IN -- a lot of Americans regardless of political party who are gonna say yes.
Let's have lots of government regulations where they.
They tell you how to hang in the air act at that it just seems to me to be obviously.
Stupid and a waste of time and kind of an infringement on people's.
Basic judgment and less -- somehow has something to do way it.
Making it handicaps.
Available or something like that you know I mean there are times when there are reasons to have some regulations but I.
There's no question that there are often you know too many things of the government involves them selves and I just moved into DC and I had to deal with a lot of our regulations that are to have our hard hit my you know my eight trillion narrative that's exactly all right -- -- Richey one more employees I -- he said if you wanna raise revenues referring to not raising taxes.
Let the tide rise for all boats -- business goes up.
Yeah a lot of government as -- -- -- -- tax rates aren't lower than they were in the Bush Administration.
But levels of revenue are extremely low level about 15% of GDP because the economy is so soft so the first order of business.
Everyone in Washington be focused entirely on making this economy grow and not further burdening.
Business and then a whole bunch of other things become.
Easy I think we actually get -- growth ultimately get to the same port and it's Pearson said it happens sometimes.
So shake hands cedar -- -- -- I think I think that.
