We got senate race is heating up in the middle of all of this puppetry.
Pollsters are starting to say the Democrats will -- -- control what my next guest says not so fast.
George -- the Republican running for senate in Virginia.
He barely lost last time I'd just a tenth of a point -- so right now the polls haven't even with Tim -- this time but we reached out to.
To McCain's office have not heard back.
They just keep -- assault but.
Let's say that you know -- hopefully we -- back but they just keep -- so anyway.
Senator governor good have you.
What do you think the senate looks like right now if you had a handicap.
While -- it's very close and all we can do -- as make sure that we win Virginia we have a tight race in Virginia about.
My wife Susan and I are working hard all over Virginia we're very encouraged by and the enthusiasm we see that.
People envision a better future than what we're having to endure these days and Virginians care about jobs in the economy this this latest threat coming out of failed Washington leadership on this sequestration which is.
Causing over 200000 jobs in our defense industries.
In jobs in Virginia being -- at risk and and obviously our military readiness being harmed.
Listen to Jack well she's exactly on target what we see in Virginia.
As people in Washington where the EPA regulations outlawing coal which is causing.
Thousands of job losses and communities in south West Virginia.
And I told Virginians on day one if I'm sworn -- -- -- senator I'm introducing a bill to allow us in Virginia to produce oil and natural gas off our coast.
And use the royalties for roads and transportation.
And what Mitt Romney in the White House he'll be saying yes to Virginia.
Jobs and energy from our coal fields for our coast and and we could really have a manufacturing Renaissance and also.
More affordable fuel and electricity.
And and a better quality of life so where we're trying to motivate and inspire people for positive constructive ideas.
They can get our country -- sending once again you know I wanna be Virginia senator.
My opponent wants to be President Obama.
So you've got a very good campaign -- it's going there I do want to talk a little bit about.
What you would do -- you -- get to the senate now would be a lame duck session of the senate and congress in general that would have to handle some of these pressing issues this fiscal cliff that.
-- Jack -- talked about and you just alluded to with the sequestration cuts.
There is talk about just extending all of those bush rates all of those cuts putting him off.
For six months maybe even a year so that either reelected President Obama were newly elected president Romney.
-- can get their respective arms around this and either hammer out a new tax code.
Simpler tax code or something like that do you think that's likely.
I like to see that happen I don't think raising taxes in this weak economy would do anything other than put people out of work.
The best way to raise revenues that's with a vibrant economy and people working and getting a paycheck rather than worrying about -- unemployment benefits being extended.
And I do think that there's a basis for an agreement a bipartisan agreement to reform our tax code to make it more simple more fair more competitive.
Remove the loop holes particularly for businesses where right now American businesses are hit where the worst tax in the world at 35%.
The international averages 25%.
I've been -- -- 20%.
And if that were done over 500000.
New jobs would be created and the dynamics of it there'd be over 23 billion dollars.
In new -- new revenues and also unleashing our energy resources.
Although all throughout our country the federal government can get over one trillion dollars.
In revenues without raising taxes so I'd like to see the they did people in both parties come together.
And work out a more simple fair and I think -- job creating tax system than the very complicated one.
That we have right now that puts American job creators at a competitive disadvantage.
All right senator very good having it.
I'll do my very best thank you -- all right senator.
