Welcome everybody I'm Neil Cavuto -- they say that actions speak louder than words so let's just say.
The president's actions odds betting today lead me doubtful about his words on spending -- data.
Because market down he has given up.
Those sequestration cuts on which he signed off are now being way off what amounted to -- back up backbone for Washington.
To come up with automatic cuts -- they couldn't agree on at least some cuts.
You suddenly looking real -- hear the president tell it real dangerous as well.
But again ask yourself list its -- little more than 1% -- -- growth of our budget.
Creates such -- state my -- my how could we ever make progress cutting.
-- more than sixteen trillion dollar debt that now reeks to Michelle Malkin.
He's been smelling this -- for a long dot.
You know Michelle this is incredible what do you make of -- It is this is the court jester of sequester I think that this press conference was a national embarrassment.
From the pitcher Ryan -- Because you had a couple arrives at night and I ran out of the but I yeah I did these cuts knowing that they weren't sort of the back up plan as did Republicans -- went out so.
This feigned shock and all about what we're facing really raised the question why did you come up with -- in the first.
Right it's not just that he signed -- to them he was the author.
I mean we know from Bob Woodward of course that that the whole idea of sequestration was Barack Obama's idea he didn't think that the Republicans would go.
What would go along with -- he was expecting them to -- But there are a lot of responsible.
Fiscal conservatives who understood that they needed to prove.
That even today could stomach some of these defense cuts because they had to show that they were Syrians about reining in government.
And yet here we go again with the chicken little in it in she is.
Were up surrounding themselves with these human shields the first responders and and wailing and moaning and shrieking about Republicans -- it is.
They have to be the first series of which you do cut and by the way how does.
Jibe with what you said in the past Mr.
President about you're resolved to -- deal with the budget deficit I'd just like it was in -- I refuse to leave our children -- -- debt that they cannot repay our prosperity also depends.
On our building to pay down the massive debt we've accumulated over the past decade.
In a way that allows us to meet our responsibilities to each other end of the future if we don't act.
That burden -- ultimately fall on our children shoulders.
If we don't act the growing debt will eventually crowd out everything else.
And all of us agree we've got to pay down our debt.
We we've we've got to we've got.
That we're living -- -- And -- was that easy now where do we stand now.
Well of course the the the lips say.
To save the children but the actions say screwed up children.
I mean at the same time that we're talking about a 2.4 percent.
Cut in -- -- 2013 budget this can only Tivoli winks 85 billion dollars it's not really a cut can we put adding ghost -- every time they say it.
And you underscored that out at the top of of your remarks there.
But at the same time it.
He's talking about that -- just true.
They just signed sixty billion dollars in court late in the thirteen -- -- spending that has -- off.
Sets to let.
Well and also at a State of the Union Address of which you -- the hundreds of billions of dollars without -- -- spending.
A promising that it won't added onto our deficit which raises the originally when -- -- -- is more taxes.
But I I I digress on that point to bigger points out that's what happens because in the scheme of things as you rightly pointed out there's a lot of -- to right or left of this issue.
85 billion and a three point eight trillion dollar budget is not a lot.
And in the scheme Bob what's going to be likely ten years from now at a minimum of twenty trillion dollar debt.
-- the -- out of rounding error on our rounding -- so we are fighting and and Doug outlawing it would this what are we gonna do when we can't get the book -- the battle of the medal.
If we -- right.
And that threat and that's where I think strategically the Republicans really need to push back hard on this isn't educational mission.
And it's evangelical mission to get people open their eyes to that real crisis here.
You know that the the message from these Democrats over the last couple of weeks has been it's very coordinated.
It the world will -- if we don't spent.
And of course it that -- hasn't completely bass backwards.
It's because of all -- spending that that we are facing an apocalypse they've been kicking the can down the road for ten days away now from these looming sequestration cuts and instead of swallowing it.
And us sucking it up and finally paying some consequences.
What is Obama doing he's blaming us for taking -- primary care possessions.
And and and endangering the national security of every man woman and child -- Well I -- -- -- and you've won at the beginning result quite appropriately.
Both sides came up with that -- sequestration cuts affect tilted heavily to our defense cuts was a White House idea.
To try to compel Republicans -- do something and -- expressed shock.
That it's coming to pass -- just -- yes too much.
Thank you so great seeing you again that now I want.
