You know you're -- public and running for president it's kind of a presidential drilled.
Pound Ohio because you re getting -- watching without winning the Buckeye State -- which is why.
You'll find that -- -- yet again today pounding his cool it on all this spending stuff.
To the Democrat -- -- Mets found in -- wrong message at the wrong time to the wrong voters he knows those voters he knows that state is Dennis decides.
You have going Ohio congressman so congress he is saying that the Republicans.
Are looking at the wrong -- -- what would you do.
Well if this is about going back to the basics it's about job creation helping people stand their homes about money for education investment in energy and environment.
And doing something about -- trade deficit which is close a lot a lot of trade policies of close a lot of industries in Ohio in the midwest.
So -- there it's just basic not to get fancy.
Well when is -- -- -- fancy.
In order to invest you have to have money to invest that we don't have money -- well yeah there's a nutrient and that.
You make a very good point -- days and it happens and the way that you get the money to -- is that the government spends money into circulation at the Fed can create money out of nothing and give it to banks.
The government without having to borrow from banks can't spend the money and -- -- circulation to create jobs and rebuilding and.
-- alien residents -- back gadget that is a very good point.
But we see the lunacy of where this has gotten about the Fed with this much money round and round and round to little avail.
And now the government with.
Hundreds of billions -- stimulus to little avail -- seem to be saying congressman.
Well maybe you'll get better results of more money.
Well I'm saying that we have ten million people out of work we gotta get him back to work we have got to see we -- alleviate the problems spending almost three dollars to get on that -- The money that was spent.
To try to prime the economy actually wasn't enough -- We we have to rebuild about three trillion dollars were there infrastructure in America this -- award to deal.
And all I -- as it was I don't -- -- infrastructure because for all the highway tolls all the state tax dollars in -- And other uses services that a presumably gone and to roads and bridges in the very things you'll be here.
Why don't we have the probably do well I wouldn't you want a first look at.
Throwing good money after bad because this seems to be -- did all black hole.
You build a bridge that's good money after good I -- you were not doing that.
So so well Annette and it lets you actually that is the goal is to get that had something that happened and that transportation lock box the same keys taken away.
From money that was supposed to go to schools.
And answer to poverty relief.
As a percentage.
Still what it was in the mid sixties when all that stuff started.
-- -- same number of people who report still the same numbers schools that are disadvantaged still the same lousy tax.
Overall since he scores that work that may be more money isn't.
The chance -- -- -- government isn't via its.
Well I never said more governments to answer because I don't know -- riding the money which is Armani well.
Except for one thing -- if the government's giving money and it goes the private sector and doesn't get out to creating jobs that's a problem if the Fed is creating money out of nothing and giving it to banks without getting a main street that's a proper line.
We the next senate and congress and if the government it's hard and I grieved by the way I'm not but it the government has given data that a trillion dollars.
To these various private construction and other firms netted him by the way -- operated that's fine whatever it is.
And it's not -- the -- you thought.
Then you're saying well maybe we'll have better results if we give them more money on -- and say I would say.
Well Neil we -- spend money and the scale resonated that's for what if a trillion doesn't cut it but what.
We need a three trillion dollar infrastructure program to put at least -- -- and we've already spent.
Absolutely US the American engineering you know the engineering societies in the and the people who study this thing.
America's infrastructure is woefully.
Under -- in need of repair.
And the problem as.
That we aren't moving forward the national declaration that this is important to investment and business by the way it's not only creating jobs for construction.
But it's also an investment for business -- -- -- out RTL Dennis allow -- to death but is it about Democrats they had this thing about infrastructure.
You love roads -- bridges almost at the expense of everything else and I know none I don't that -- -- me I don't know I think out of all of a laid off high tech executive.
And you run -- it's a good news good news we got more money.
Where that highway projects in in -- -- what is that retired or suddenly laid off executive.
Going to say -- that news.
-- that laid off executive might be laid off executive because our trade policies are rotten and we've given away the -- to China.
We we have much I now would trade him he -- -- about 600000 dollars going up he just did not like any great yeah it's Dennis just approved this.
For new -- All -- -- America okay fine.
He says al-Qaeda that's great I've got my MBA.
And on how to work.
You're going to there hasn't got a job what am I supposed to do about paint the lines down the middle of the street -- -- -- you're an engineer -- you're you're structural engineer -- -- you have a job -- person that -- survey and you have a job that listeners who you're dreaming -- for a -- and just -- we don't we don't know what -- I don't Wayland which is making it a nightmare losing our position in the world.
We have to be a great power by having a great nation.
Which employs people and which rebuilds the basic things that help commerce this is about business this is about moving commerce but -- this just.
Sewell about growing not a great power anymore because we bled money drying what was Iowa and -- -- -- -- partisan rant.
We have -- money dry year in and year out to the point -- sixteen trillion dollars.
In debt other -- where we're gonna get -- we waste and where I'm gonna get better results if we spend more money.
We can't become a great power with the government spending money.
May well we -- time candidate becoming a great power with the government simply stepping down.
And if the private sector is in creating jobs who's gonna create the jobs I mean the public sector as as a major responsibility here.
I don't know probably -- get that -- and it's you get out of my way the private sector.
We'll start doing the job.
Well you they had the chance they haven't done it this is the problem you've got to -- original bloodlines because there's collapsing because you regulating because you can make money.
-- and people off.
-- making money didn't really tell because the environment here -- Would you invest in an environment -- aren't you telling me -- environment -- -- I'm more capital the government is taxing more than the government is regulating -- in that environment.
Would you commit so much is a penny more.
To -- standing up.
Up bubble gum machine -- your plant let alone a job.
In that we don't have to have that what would make you optimistic to spent.
I'll take what would congressman if you've got off -- back into left them alone if you promise of a tax cut it's a promise and you wouldn't at a hundred new regulations today.
They might might might say okay coast is -- -- is off my you know what I mean.
Yeah yeah if Wall Street's run the game in there and -- in both parties you tell me what's gonna change.
When a man who has -- streets was an audio still but I tell you I love you tell you don't -- -- -- units against Charlotte.
I'll see -- there -- well no you won't cause now I don't like you and on the -- and getting them back then it's just finished this.
