And as well from -- your congress and Charlie.
On this we're gonna talk about other storm related events as well on congress is good to see you again -- -- about this.
I really think we'll -- the same page we got to find out what happened to find out whether there was wrongdoing yet Maurice -- miscalculations.
But I'm just -- That it is still continues to be looked at as a political issue.
-- -- -- -- That the president of the United States deliberately wanted to cover this up.
Well that now -- bringing in people dedicated their lives to our country.
I I don't think it was -- I was at a time male doctors say no I don't find it at all.
I do find one thing they should be a united nonpartisan shares -- -- truth.
And even when you pauses that is he going to be beholding to the president all what do we have an all awful his -- -- -- into the flag should be the.
Only question weren't you among those questioning during the weapons of mass destruction -- Iraq War.
Leaders would be -- and to tell the truth about that when critical well questioning whether everyone's been up -- no no no.
I when you take -- -- that's enough for me and dead and the congress has the -- to go beyond that as relates to perjury.
I really think that does a disservice to the credibility of all of the people who -- there have.
See you don't think there's anything that you've seen or heard congressman.
That's odd or that may be the administration is it didn't involve the president of others near and around and his security -- new.
About a bad situation and today it's.
About all I did enough to warrant an investigation.
And I think we all should be.
Concerned about what the results of the investigations.
Going to be so that's the idea -- and so signing a -- over personal affair.
You think is just had nothing to do when -- I have trust in him and I think he's telling -- true.
And believe me they two olds out they have for people who lie and all of and I don't see why when you pursuing.
A -- -- truth because for Americans was killed.
That they should be any assumption at all that they would be a cover up especially when we've just begun an investigation.
If you want to talk about partisanship we do you ever -- -- -- That's -- -- -- comedians doing the investigation.
And in all likelihood all of his investigations have been on television.
So the American people will be able to listen to the -- that -- given under -- But I don't think whether it's this present -- Republican president.
-- after the death before heroes.
That we should now infer that is been.
A -- up over this there's no evidence at all if the information that -- that rice got was not accurate.
And they admitted it wasn't let's find out why.
It was not -- but it rarely says an awkward time line -- this no question about it but but I don't think that warrants.
That's alleged perjury but let me switch here is very quickly on this.
Olive branch both sides of offered each other.
On avoiding this fiscal cliff John Boehner opened to revenues the president supposedly open on a lot of issues but really have we -- now here.
No but -- thank god that they they've created a climate that America would be monitoring to make certain.
That they do make a good faith the -- John Boehner has to really start counting votes.
He has a majority in numbers but how much he can do -- not do.
Good to be dependent on and a handful of fiscal conservatives on the right.
Charlie Rangel be okay with a plan initially for Republicans is this is what -- put -- the closes loopholes tax breaks for millionaires.
All of this stuff without formally raising the rates.
And that's their initial proposal on revenues it will mean taxes go up but it's not formally raising the rates with Charlie Rangel say yes or no Canada.
This enough money the -- to make it revenue neutral.
But we have to raise money from the upper income -- I understand that and the only way to do it notoriety is too.
Raise the rates.
Boris is how idols live right here -- that we have to really see what he is talking about.
Because they get a lot of preferential treatment ended tax -- you could do it.
There is this really possible to do that if you cut all under preferential treatment that -- getting and that's not going to be easy to do.
Everybody wants tax cuts and wants to get rid of loopholes -- they go back home you would be open -- that as a starting no question about it.
Well you know we -- when I got broken disagreement right now what you know you said starting point the thing is to avoid this fiscal cliff.
Because that's a total disaster -- and so we have to have something to get this over into next year.
And I -- the American people's they have no case to make certain we do -- job okay.
-- was a pleasant type voters Monday and -- -- today.
