I T situations truck pal Charles Krauthammer joins us now from Washington -- -- first -- -- -- -- -- talking points -- we've -- federal spending -- -- -- stupid and -- Do you expect pres Obama to respond to that.
Well what initially.
When the senate presents -- budget tomorrow.
This is now going to be the first one.
From the Democrats.
In four years -- obviously have been done with the cooperation of the White House.
We will see whether there's any real spending.
I suspect the answer will be no.
They'll do some you know some show -- -- say will spend you know waste and abuse here -- that -- But I think in terms of how much -- the deficit is and how much is being spent.
Three point six trillion dollars it will be a trivial amount.
The real question is will they cut entitlements.
And will they do tax reform the president says he's offered stuff on the table.
In the back room with the speaker of the house.
But has he ever propose that as -- ever -- -- no we haven't seen any -- extermination.
Has he said I would change the way we measure inflation.
Has he said are willing to raise the retirement age that's what -- president's supposed to do.
President's supposed to lead on this the reason we haven't gotten anywhere on this is because he hasn't -- because he is not interest did.
In cutting spending that's not how he sees the mission.
This president out.
Okay now the question is why and I asked that question earlier two Crowley and call ups.
Is the president a socialist.
Is he just a person who wants to set up a system where the Democratic Party.
Is invincible because they dole out the money that the people need in the medical care and all of that what is the motivating force.
Barack Obama is an intelligent Manny knows -- dead is approaching seventeen trillion he knows we're spending a million and a half to study overweight lesbians -- should know.
OK but he doesn't seem to care what's the motivated behind.
Because I do thing.
What he really -- to accomplish.
And leaders and hide this.
It was the content of a second inaugural address.
It was a content of the first to -- he made to congress after being sworn in in 2009.
He was completely open about this.
I'm here to change America and he was specific three wise health care energy education.
He's essentially rationalizing health care and entirely a huge new entitlement.
That once imposed on the people will not be removed.
He wants essentially to nationalize.
Our child care of for a five year old sets a new entitlement.
He clearly in the ways subsidizing college education and cutting college loan burdens he clearly wants to -- college education.
And to make it an entitlement to -- is in Europe.
This is the vision he has of himself to make America more like the European system which he sees as a just system.
Well you know what's interesting about that race is who we is a -- the issue but here's what's -- thing about it.
I lived in England for a year -- went to the University of London my third year.
And in England you have to take a test when you're sixteen years old as you said.
Because the educational system is nationalized if you score above you go to college and it's paid for by the government if you score below you're done.
You don't get higher education -- in this system it's a class system.
And that's what they have in Great Britain because it's so expensive to go privately that the working class can't.
Here we have Community Colleges we have a lot of scholarship money we have a lot of grant and aid money it seems to be working fairly well here.
But you're saying to me that he wants to turn this thing upside down which I think would work against.
The lower classes.
The bill when you are you with me -- -- -- an open door.
I'm not a social Democrat the way Obama is that I think everybody tries -- able.
You know exploited you he's not trying to destroy America he wants to change America into something it's never been.
He wants to be the man to introduce what's going on social democracy.
And that's why he -- and why he doesn't care about the deficits.
That he expects either weekend with low interest rates -- won't be a big deal or he thinks that his successors who could be GOP.
Well clean up after the way you know -- -- -- a fifteen cent after me that day huge.
Nazi he -- -- this -- fifteen who have come on I mean you know how many Louise -- there.
Fifteen NIC look at the -- you know get -- but I had a guy got to get to say look good job I gotta correct you there were 1818 okay.
What's three afford.
Now instead of Florida and I don't like -- you socialize with the dine with issues of the house a lot.
Why does she want to have one minute left transgendered people in the military Ernie got to gays and they're now fine no problem.
Why do you what why does she want to -- engenders.
What -- my psychiatrist.
Actually got it slightly that it gave you walk first.

He got insurgencies in north did seventeen trillion dollars of debt.
And she has decided that the bird to human rights issue of our time our transsexuals in the military.
I tell you did not want I can solve.
What squad that's going to be and what their job is going to be yours historically I will let you speculated that I -- are not -- there.
OK I think it was an -- and Hogan's Heroes about but I could be wrong guy -- -- -- -- click here that's the wrong okay.
