We are going to go all over the financial -- thought -- everybody.
In the Obama camp knows we are going all over the financial -- We raise taxes on the rich or not we're going over the -- raising taxes confiscating the -- money would.
Not save us there's an alternative to going over of the fiscal left in whole or in part.
Involves making real changes to the financial structure of entitlement programs of reforming our tax -- to curb special interest loopholes into the -- working together and creating a fairer simpler cleaner tax code we give our country stronger -- healthier economy I went.
To bed last night thinking.
All this discussion -- -- head about this election being the election that we'll tell us whether or not we've lost the country.
I went to bed last night -- -- we've lost the country.
Congress is the major capital right now that the dysfunctional congress we see other signs of left.
We've got to have a congress that can work together and between now and year -- I think that's gonna.
-- -- -- -- be our opportunity to take that first big step the American people recognize that are our economy get that movement again.
He's the only way we'll be able to balance the federal -- The question we should be asking does not -- taxes should -- great deal more but.
Which reforms complete surgery on the we'll get our economy moving again -- Mama is hell bent on remaking this country where in the middle of it.
-- four years into a transformation of this government becoming status to.
It's it really is liberty versatility we're four years into tyranny winning.
Hey guess what.
No matter what happens now gives Bush's fault Obama is getting -- -- the American people want us to work together.
Republicans -- story -- Democrats -- to work together conservatism.
In my humble opinion did not flew its last night.
It's just very difficult to beat Santa Claus.
It is practically impossible to beat.
Santa -- People are not going to vote against Santa Claus especially if the alternative.
Is being your -- -- -- This president this is your moment we're ready to be left out of Democrats or Republicans but as America.
We wanted only.
As a liberal.
But -- president of the United States of America.
So President Obama a -- will he work with a sharply divided congress to avoid that fiscal cliff.
Former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour joins -- -- governor.
They've got -- thought -- governor -- I hear a half ago according to Bob Woodward's book President Obama the Obama administration can happen this idea of sequestration.
And it was could be avoided if the super committee in November of last year made a decision on how do not resolve our problems on on the deficit the debt.
That didn't happen.
December nobody did anything January February march April may June July -- an hour up to November -- post election we're now on the edge of this thing being.
Put into -- fact.
January in early January.
The two sides -- fighting is -- the president's obligation to get the two to stop fighting and to work this out.
Well car McCain's lead grew at a 535.
People can lead to present nationally.
And Nevada government is not some automatic gridlock.
When Ronald Reagan was present when -- divided government we.
Did the Reagan economic plan we did Social Security reform we did -- -- forwarded immigration reform and one Bill Clinton was president.
We had Republican congress Democrat president and we did welfare reform we did the first -- wouldn't generation.
But -- each case that president -- and and in each case he was -- that advocate.
And he was also willing to compromise.
For the greater good this president hasn't been willing to do that we'll see unfolds on the left center brought -- -- we're we're inviting you to lead.
When -- thing that is it cannot be.
Ignore is that we aren't we are a year passed when we knew that the committee are almost a year past we knew the super committee was not gonna reach a decision and there as if if leadership is.
Is what it was needed and if you -- if you sign that the President Obama he hasn't done that we're now pushed up against a deadline would very serious decisions do you think.
That the house and the senate and the present -- to resolve this by January 1 or -- just gonna kick down the road again.
Well congress has a long history of preferred to kick -- down the road.
There's no question about that -- ever.
This this is a much more serious thing that they've come up against that I've ever seen before in terms of budget and and then to fiscal -- What I think they'll happen hopefully they will agree -- framework.
You're not gonna do tax reform.
In the next six straight weeks.
You're not gonna do entitlement reform next six straight weeks I think what we should hope for that they get serious together -- -- -- -- say okay.
We're gonna take whatever the sequestration would save in six months we're gonna whacked -- -- of the bush.
And then and -- in the six months if we're not.
We haven't got the whole -- done that will do another -- but that's it got to be real action.
Based -- -- belief that they -- don't want to -- otherwise I don't think conservatives won't -- until Saddam.
You know -- -- -- -- this has to be something real.
What -- -- more could anyone possibly believe that because sequestration was just that if something didn't happen.
That also we're gonna go to sequestration so why should we believe it now that's the first point the second point is they've -- of the -- -- -- over you to do this and so does everybody -- I do my job every American out there was lucky enough to have a job and a seven point 9% unemployment -- environment has done his or her job -- we don't do our jobs.
We get fired instead they just keep pushing it down push it down the president doesn't -- speaker Boehner and say c'mon up and let's all this nobody does anything.
-- you know absolutely jewel of 100% correct complaint.
I mean the president since his book is up to the hill.
And he is so unconcerned that every Democrat senator for two years -- -- voted against spread little bottles but it.
And what was his reaction be totally I'm serious but this is backs up against the wall.
If the president -- we've got a real chance but let's don't be kidding ourselves you're not gonna arrive at tax reform bill in a few weeks.
So why can't believe though that and your plan if they push it down the -- -- he did that would sequestration.
That -- up believability in every what is change not not saying it's not my plan gruden Bill Frist -- So I don't know about let me -- -- they put on the top prediction -- That's better I'm sorry you you talk about the budget and you know I I was reading tonight about how.
The budgets where we -- we sent our priorities in nations parties who recognize how much revenue we have we decide how we're gonna spend it's been described seat moral document as a time when we sort of sit down decide what we need to do.
Under the 1974 budget act.
We're supposed to have this every year that's not been done.
The president hasn't been a proposal to senator Harry Reid the house says -- has submitted proposals thanks you in constant Paul Ryan passed a budget or inhibits his budget the past.
But senator Harry -- He won't even consider he would encourage his senate budget -- doing it not actually nothing is a pocket veto and stops the budget from going forward.
It and in fairness to all wrong and John Boehner every year the republic have been in the majority.
In the house in this administration the house has just passed budget both -- the senate.
The majority leader -- ran up and the Republicans.
Bring up Obama's budget.
To get as an amendment to force the Democrats -- him.
But if the president -- I happen to believe the president mostly -- homes Democrat leader.
Don't do it if the president store -- now we're gonna really try to get something done -- the Democrat leader will do what presents us.
Well why didn't mean I know -- sent me an idea here to defend why the president did do it but.
You know all these budgets is that it would it would been so simple he's the leader of the party.
If the hold up -- senate majority leader Harry Reid a Democrat.
Could be just call senator Harry Reid said let's let's get a bunch let's put it up -- let's do it now we we we hear now that he's telling governor Christie's gonna answer the phone and fifteen minutes but we can't get a budget three years.
You got a very good point -- dislike mr.
amid the bills that he's now that the election's over.
Maybe he will take a different attitude you I hope so but your point exactly brought it -- just Somalia some of the shows about the physical we have.
-- on immigration reform -- so many other things.
Hadn't even offered any legislation.
But he'll when you when you start all things -- -- the fact that let's just take the tax -- -- taxes -- up or taxes go down.
I frankly tell the truth I really don't care.
And they in a prime my taxes would go up but I do know one thing is that while we're in this period of indecision and everybody's known about this nobody's doing any investing.
No one's making any decisions you can't do any planning because the president and the house and and the senate.
Have not be a fish -- cut bait so nobody can make decisions that stars economy so people can't get jobs people aren't carried no one's doing it because they -- -- their job.
I think you're really been given the government a break here when you say it's just uncertainty because it's not just uncertainty.
They've got to sort of -- please hang -- over -- -- -- with Obama care.
That the president won't -- biggest stash British and American history and no -- primarily.
Potential job creators it's not just on certainty about policy.
It's that they've got bed by Ed -- chairman of -- the government case -- itself.
Rich anymore and your family -- -- if rich but.
The government -- suck in all of the energy out of the economy when the government's spends ten billion dollars a day and -- it takes in six.
-- it but every time it just sort of does -- big advantage something three months or six months.
It really puts -- -- on the economy and because people can't make decision -- we have some long term planning every time they do that.
It hurts any American who wants to job everything every single time and selfish and yet it's not doing their job.
I don't take issue what to -- in the shoe store -- long time ago but let me just -- If we have to be.
Try to be accurate you're not gonna see an entitlement reform bill or a tax reform bill they can be written.
And decided -- own and -- raw right witness if they wait you.
No I -- yeah I understand that but this whole sequestration -- started in July of last year.
And it's because they didn't do the job that we're now up against this window and it's a few weeks -- the American people who suffer because.
They all and presents later didn't do their job I'm -- -- -- not undermine.
What do you ought to do it well I guerrillas million trying to act like it's my fault of that and get.
Let -- play somebody you've got to go back.
To -- the -- -- destroy our president has to leave and I saw on -- screen before and restored to show the word compromise.
Compromise is not a dirty word Aaron the blue -- a lot of for Ronald Reagan.
And Ronald Reagan and maybe you thought until Obama was the most ideological president.
Ronald Reagan had compromised everything we've talked about what.
Clinton about just public congress downton yeah -- -- guest speaker Boehner gave -- statement about how he wants to reach out and compromise.
Is that it than what Ways and Means Committee ranking member Sander Levin Democrat from Michigan.
Puts out a press release in which he refers to the Republicans must end their intransigence.
So he just insults them right -- -- Honda pot how wouldn't even begin to have.
Have any sort of communication in congress when they send out -- insulting each other.
The media that goes back to presidential election if the president doesn't crack the -- in his own people who line.
Then how does he expect to be able to get -- other side.
Two to work with -- yet and I appreciate government coming got a second yell -- you from my frustration for the government now -- did you know governor I don't I don't think he had a much better now than -- could.
But I -- Thank you governor.
And tonight is.
