You know what I'm coming from what kind of new America is it tiger less successful people forced out of their native state.
And they have to apologize because they complain about the government taking two thirds of -- -- let's break it down.
Actually got a 40% federal income tax rate California just voted in thirteen point 5% so that's 53 point five.

A human reaction what when -- go shopping for something you want to look for the best deal.
That is true on any product that you buy it's also true in attacks is it going to pay and because of migration patterns are -- they are people decided to go to states where there are.

I I -- really can't I don't agree with the pre apology apology.
Here's the problem.
And this is the same for new York New Jersey Illinois California all all the big liberal states they're taxing people people -- in droves right now.
Now we just had a major tax increase Obama wins over the fiscal cliff deal but that's not enough.
What senate Chuck Schumer we've got to have more revenue warm warm warm but it would take the gold at a UT's and dot wants us.
We need a budget.
It's going to be great opportunity for us cause you know our budget that we will pass we -- tax reform which went many of my Republican colleagues like.
But it's -- include revenues it's a great opportunity to get us some more -- -- The next tax -- -- going to be called tax reform yes that's frightened about an opportunity to soak the -- a trillion dollars in new revenue -- through tax reform it could be a carbon tax it could be cutting deductions for wealthy people it could be more Social Security tax it can be means testing Medicare -- be anything but we're gonna get more money out of you.
More taxes more spending for -- forget about it.
That's the price falls short is and persuading them spend the American people that.

They basically -- just.
Drunk with money in Washington DC and they want more and more.

A 40% death tax and 40%.
Goes to the government.
A vote ten million plus thousand and I don't isn't ten or is that there's five million dollars per person but when you look at what is it respects not the government money Stewart I agree and talk about is -- death tax that what they're doing is that accumulating more and more money.
And then passing it out to buy votes that buying a permanent majority of people on this -- -- money and successful.
And it's awfully wrong because ultimately driving America to stop it -- -- -- -- -- -- circuit driving America to bankruptcy.
That is still love about the debt which -- -- put up a one quick question for Dana because we had a big battle last week on the program IE.
The Stewart and I want to be more gore want the Republicans to be more aggressive.
You think that they.
But if -- if you wanna have you had only one negotiator -- aggressive at Enron marriage and persuade people.
That your ideas and based on facts experience and I'm looking at all the evidence would be better for the country rather than just gotta -- I could see Joseph Biden I'm gonna -- he's going to be -- -- -- -- have my -- use it and -- you'll have to have a golden -- just making it -- growth -- isn't liberty that's what Republicans that stands out more and we will have a quiet while I'd be against I'm -- aggressively in -- of growth optimism liberty aggressively -- -- that's -- I'm with -- I love a good fight hard for.
