Well as watching it continued fighting over -- -- my next guest says trying to get both sides to break bread he should now.
Panera Bread founder and CEO Ron check -- could have -- Good to see you know you know the great thing about of the equal to the campaign -- -- -- was that you you and a pox on both parties houses and the fact that they were.
Just not moving not meeting on on these crucial issues.
When he wants he can do right now we have no labels want to see them.
Begin to have real solutions I mean the reality TV I know labels -- what you -- -- is is to reduce the hyper partisanship.
To demand of our leaders real solutions.
As opposed to this hyper partisanship.
Bickering kick it down the can't -- each other what if we take this debt.
Sealant into the break.
The president was -- two days you might have heard Ron it will be on Republicans for being so lots of good.
Well I I think it's part of the problem which is again blaming and the reality is that Americans want this thing solved and we had no labels really have a proposal.
To try to move forward on that it begins with.
Organizing the citizens around that secondly creating blocks of of congress people we were in New York today with senator Joseph mention Jon Huntsman.
Dozens of congress people.
And we really were kicking off this in the labels movement saying let's come together it's not about only -- and I don't think it there it's an idea to kind of get -- and -- Well here's the deal it's about it's it's and it's not about what we're going to do it's about how we're doing we've devolved to a system that is essentially not working.
I mean how -- we operate a world where we have not had a budget since 1997.
We have a three point truly three point seven trillion dollar.
Budget the united absence of panera if you operated -- one I'd be fired you just like you now you know on.
I always -- -- -- -- that ceiling debate on whether we're missing a bigger planner says rush fresh threats to avoid.
Approaching the whole ceiling issue but the reason I think we're on these various credit watch list -- the reason why we keep having the problems we do.
Is because we've done this nearly fifty times sports and that's the problem.
Net net net you know yeah we'll we'll get through this -- they probably you know Scotland together some stupid deal.
But they'll be -- 51 and a fifty seconds and -- act.
What's the most of not so sure and we is this -- people we can live with this uncertainty the American people can't live with this uncertainty.
The world -- how would you evidence and the president says this should be.
-- America once a year deal.
You know whether the president of the Paris and it's automatically done.
It's like a credit lines automatically inquiries but that automatically.
Codify it's this weights right.
What we're -- dealing with the core issue and the core issue is what -- the congress agrees to spend.
All this debt ceiling is about is actually paying our bills so to me the that the big the cal was out of the Margaret.
Let's allow us as United States government to at least do what any business would do.
Which is pay your bill.
Now -- Wall Street.
Lolly -- about this or not apparently word and it's another update today -- Up a lot of years young years -- for a good year last year -- all of this was of Paramount concern -- all your worries -- trumpeted.
As they have been tomorrow as the street not -- Well I think we've learned to live in this kind of environment and the reality is we've accepted.
What -- what appears to be a continual kicked the can down the street kind of a politics and -- Would you and your fellow CEOs do.
If they have a credible budget accord -- credible debt yes fix.
It you'd probably dropped out of -- -- but I knew what would you do.
Well I I think -- would allow us all to feel a little bit more secure about where we're going we don't know the rules of the game and that's really what we're asking for and I think that's what.
What -- -- the country's asking for but I think we started citizens not business people first.
And the reality is we know the problems they're dead education.
Immigration and energy and the reality is as a nation.
We compete -- against nation states.
How we ever going to compete if we can't solve these problems the issue is not the debt ceiling.
The issue is the fundamental core problems in the country and the inability of our congressional leaders and our political class to.
Actually solve the men's and how is it used to -- an infinite and I've been -- you are home to some of the best -- dates.
Everything looked good grades are good for you real perhaps it's just not the volume to get them -- -- -- Panera Bread is CEO of founder.
