And helicopter -- -- -- building near Minneapolis also the Democratic National Committee and vice chair RT right back mayor thank -- -- going on tonight appreciate it very much.
I wonder how Mitt Romney gets away with coming out with a tax plan that when you look at the numbers.
Actually raises the taxes for middle income Americans and give people like himself.
So -- like a 20% tax break it's unbelievable I don't understand -- -- he shamelessly.
-- -- -- I got to sit out I was out in Colorado today and that is rally outside -- up for the middle class should is that we felt that.
-- -- -- up the middle class -- have a whole bunch of est 2000 dollars a year more in taxes.
So that he.
That he can buy another elevator where it hurts and it's six have a very -- and I mean what is.
The problem here the the reality is that we are seeing what you say we're seeing -- -- in Washington where.
Congress' and it's -- very compute Chris trying to explain both for bankrupt cents.
America's there -- also standing up for those of the top stand and who works so well.
Why people this work under George W.
Bush speaks Arabic collapsed the last time we get there we've heard for ten years it didn't create jobs.
I -- -- they complain about the lack of job creation even though the job numbers of turnaround because the stimulus package in yet.
The job numbers.
And the Bush Administration which we were told would go up because of the bush tax cuts did not do so.
Is an insanity try the same thing over and over and expecting -- -- so I don't understand why people would even buy this.
Well you know it's just in terms that are with parents and talk a little bit about small business server but it's a little bit about this -- second.
Somebody it just you -- certainly one who has dress shop and Symbian open copy place with somebody on the pizza place so how are they gonna make money.
But they're gonna make more money by having somebody command every day customers haven't instructing every day or -- nobody there.
Because they've got a higher tax rates for months and months but hopefully luckily some cute little -- being dragged down the street sense heavily by 2008 says.
-- -- -- -- -- -- He currently is based on the middle class in and every politicians -- but that rarely can ever say that anymore.
We got a Tax Policy Center which is a centrist organizations -- -- -- tax cuts.
Would boost after tax income by an average of four point 1% for those earning more than a million dollars a year and reducing by an average of one point 2%.
The after tax income of individuals earning less than 200000 dollars -- he not.
Go over the -- and -- and they put this kind of a I'm just baffled as this is their plan.
Well you know is there a couple things from the -- number one.
Let's -- attention to how they're handling their.
And think about what -- it would seem that there were in the White House so -- there weren't simply count yourself what you believe that agree with the -- look at inherent element true.
They're just a few months ago revenue was threatened again you know -- -- -- the Republican field.
Do you see exact same.
As an example of an independent third party okay so they've clearly -- that this group has some credibility.
Whenever they're -- other centers and Obama back group because somebody from the Obama administration is in that group apparently.
Yeah I'm somebody who worked for George W.
Bush is -- the group's general.
And it's certain if certain bipartisan group parent they were coordinate themselves.
But you know I think that's saying about it really what you think about this it's.
Who were courts finally getting to understand all -- that because.
There's of the future that he is the other day and asked what -- -- -- get the ground and she's getting completely don't know it's -- finally got no effect.
Return this is -- tax plan right.
I know that's a fact is that he would exploit it so other people analyze in the country -- nominal look over here look over here.
But but -- until people actually vote for the plan.
And this doesn't really certain that you can dispute it's it's been scored independently analyzed independently.
You know and so it basically says that red army and that he deserves what they expect tax break -- there and we're gonna altered her with 2000 bucks out of our.
-- you disabuse people of the notion that.
-- Democrats like Barack Obama raise taxes and that Republicans cut taxes.
Because that seems to be the of them but most people believe that's conventional wisdom but it's just not true.
Well you know 11 way to -- -- -- to go to the new tax calculator that we have up on the Barack Obama web site.
Just Google Obama tax calculator.
It right there you can put your income and it'll tell you how much you save Democrats and Obama and how much you would say.
Under his its plan going forward.
Assuming you're somebody who makes -- you know 300000 dollars start here they get over that.
You're gonna pay a little bit more it and Internet -- He flat out there -- the calculators so and so sort of having.
You know different people analyze it to go to the calculator -- -- exactly what -- but it also shows how much more -- -- under governor Mitt Romney.
You know under dispute over the textile operator and it's it's right up there in black and white.
Do you subscribe to Harry Reid's statement that.
-- -- and pay taxes for ten years.
I I I don't know what he's backing -- -- and he said he got a call from someone I I haven't seen that yet heard -- call I certainly wouldn't they would say that.
But nobody's given the event -- collection.
I do know that.
I I think we should all be more and more concerned about -- not.
Reaching its -- because.
You think that -- percent of the Republican led congress had standards for anyone who the president nominated cabinet -- -- So that's good it's important as sever years to tax return or.
To understand the person -- they were on the transportation.
Part of our government because we should understand -- complex or housing and urban development makes sense.
True they would never compare where the president she won't even adhere to the same standard -- -- I think the president have a look at more.
What do you think his thinking is what do you think he's hiding something.
Honestly early on I saw you I like you know he should release but he you know kind of -- and -- This I've been through in a political thing to -- that you don't go through this much brain damage -- -- something there.
And the thing that's kind of interest thing -- can't put a few pieces together here.
And never any person when he says he would it would take -- -- they get a prepared that's baloney he gave -- like twelve years to McCain yeah but you know what happened.
We came looked at all about any street so -- you could order to clear they.
It really says Sarah Palin was a better -- -- -- Enron.
Yeah so so that only people who've actually seen these are written these plans are girl who remnick accountants.
-- -- that scene and you were burned and but I bet -- They're pretty -- the track -- Damaging people's -- and it worked out so you know what's what's the flavor there.
You could make it's go way heatedly and at every -- be that of benefit analysis or realizes it's better not to.
Let me ask you about Tim Pawlenty -- he's being talked about is a short list possibility for VP.
Being from Minnesota.
Would he be a good choice.
Well you know I'm Minnesotan and so we're always proud of what the -- -- an important to win and we're happy that Mondale and and country where vice presidents and we're gonna open when he says it's.
I'm happy for me being mentioned.
But I was certainly airport -- city paper -- eight years and it's important to.
And I can guarantee -- there.
It's simple I think it's on the ticket every investigative reporter in the United States server who was -- -- Minnesota.
Had a couple months later kind of the same conclusion he didn't -- -- -- -- He would he was wildly artists and he started you know he talks real.
Are -- -- fitting that they're trying to bring people together -- issues of education reform and Health Care Reform Alba that that.
There aren't who -- climate change your result of that fact that.
Parents can be a moderate voice.
Will it work here and any change radically.
And he became the most partisan governor -- -- here and well.
It is easily package.
And simply couldn't get apparently there -- other -- that are majority in Minnesota he went to true integrations.
And he govern that he's governed like a person who would deeply ideological.
Would do -- actually not -- across the aisle here and if you look at what's the problem in Washington.
It's deeply deeply partisan -- Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty are the problem Romney wasn't exactly a governor like Japanese turned in a presidential -- Anybody and running and his gubernatorial record or is being read so I don't know what -- running and running on not being Barack Obama -- -- mayor which Edwards have and I do appreciate you coming on the program.
Once again and giving us says the insight you have for the campaign -- Thank you very much for your time to see.
Thank you appreciate agreement does mayor RT right back the third term mayor of Minneapolis also vice chair of the Democratic National Committee.
