Crappy -- the house GOP budget bounce in ten years that presents senate senate senate Democrats and house democrats' budget never bounced past McCarthy.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Chasing balanced budget for the sake of balance and that's part of -- but I had to keep from -- How can president not want to balance the budget how does he forget what he said when -- -- first schools in the first four years was to cut.
The deficit in half.
Now he doesn't care he hasn't produced a budget I'll bet you this.
I bet -- he spends more time -- -- -- March Madness brackets that he does writing the budget.
Well -- -- a price Ephron budget.
-- -- a minute did OK in all fairness but.
But yeah I I don't mean I understand why I mean I know the -- -- to continue resolution sequestration says some add complexity to to -- him a budget.
But at the house of the senate can get a budget together in spite of all the stuff that's going on why can't the president.
There's no excuse like it but think -- -- he came to the state of the union he laid out the American public what he wanted to achieve that was doing a lot of different things financially.
How can even picture about wanting to achieve those -- -- -- first put on paper what you can afford what you can't.
What -- -- why doesn't he do that.
-- -- -- We didn't just let it as -- gamesmanship Britney some more effective way to alleged to have to be an executive I think it's a philosophical belief that he -- -- that he can take more from the taxpayer and keep spending.
I think this whole idea says he could submit a budget like that a -- wasserman may mean it -- -- of -- what you can't.
You don't want to put on paper what his vision is because.
The American public would not support it if it was on paper is his -- vastly different since the S Senate Budget Committee.
For the Democrats yeah.
I think it's going to be different that the Democrats are gonna raise -- another trillion dollars it will never balance his will never balance pars balances in ten years.
That's a fundamental difference.
It is one for one important thing is balancing another important thing is why do you balance why do you balance could you give your children a greater opportunity for freedom.
And greater opportunity to have growth in this country.
You'll see jobs created more you'll see that you will not waste money on interest you invest in America to actually put a new generation to work.
Well I'm does that anxious to see his budget as as we talked princess and day -- is that it is disturbing to me the -- deadlines that I know budgets -- you think he's above the law while.
Well I think you know -- I mean he's not the first and he's done before and everybody else is -- -- apparently I'm really it's it mean nobody has much regard for -- from -- -- -- in the White House.
I think it's a key responsibility -- any elected official first to do much I don't disagree with him he's.
I think he avoided for political reasons.
He's waiting -- the house does -- and passes it the only reason the senate Democrats are doing their sales because we passed no budget no pay.
And what -- Pelosi say about it you know she disagreed with -- she would she -- it it wasn't dignified I I think it's not dignified if you don't do your job.
I I think it's terrible that we have to pass.
The Serb gimmicks or whatever you wanna caught -- -- people didn't want it to Jackson we elect in the floor and you wonder why Washington is so broken became the star of the show and Washington -- -- great.
This is a message.
This isn't it but -- but the Ryan plan.
He would eliminate Medicaid expansion so I'm curious.
What happens to the poor people who are part of this Medicaid expansion because they're gonna show up at hospitals someone's got to pay the cost of it -- the local hospitals -- before if you eliminate Medicaid expansion.
That that's a federal government for the states in conjunction pay for Medicare for the now -- Lately he he sent it to the state he gives them greater flexibility I'll take within states.
They have better pilot programs they have ability to deliver as -- and you talked to a lot of governors.
Even Democrats they'll agree with what selling exotic set -- -- when -- say eliminate Medicaid expansion say what you will give them block grants to do it themselves let let let's not use the word eliminate because the one thing this budget does not do.
What what Ryan does overall -- instead of growing government 5%.
He -- 3.4 why because our economy's not growing at 5%.
-- make should not spend more than what you bring and what he does -- make the program more efficient actually takes it to the lower level puts it into the states that allows them the flexibility.
That is a different.
The other thing is you move the economy in a different way too so more people are working.
More people have a different opportunity one of the other parts of is it under Medicare he would converted to a subsidized private plan what is that.
-- -- that is that is getting health care just like every congressional member.
Congress has he gives you a choice was singing muted so -- in my from the government those who can't afford a subset of -- together for the very poorest can take care of a safety net.
But what we're gonna do to we're gonna respect -- that we believe you know what's best about your health care to -- we're gonna give you options just like people who are watching this channel have options on which cable they wanna get.
Which packages they want to -- But you get -- you get a sense something you -- -- go in and you get a look.
Phillies say subsidizing it -- Medicare right now you reach a certain Internet and -- into firm for a number years of that facility reaches certain AGF Medicare but -- speak to a -- budget does if you wanna stay on the current merit Medicare system you can.
If you wanna have a choice you can what we're talking about here for the very -- we will we will give them more.
We we will put a system to gather that takes care that safety net for those individuals but if you -- -- -- -- -- I think that -- don't -- don't like that.
I don't know.
I mean what what what we provide -- -- give greater options and choice to an individual to decide their own way.
Many times and I discuss with a Democrat it's a philosophical difference that they think that person.
Would make a wrong choice of government should make a choice so that you don't catch like connecting in less services are having to pain more than just -- -- -- Who you are gonna have a greater option to be able.
As a member of congress we all get a set amount of money based upon were working for government right.
Then we get a whole list of different insurance options we can take that same about we go in and we pick which one you know what Judy and I would do what our kids were younger.
We can look for an insurance that covered races -- my children.
Now in our children are older we're looking for different options.
Just -- it's greater -- you know what I don't want government making that choice for me.
I know what's best for our family my wife and I will make that decision together.
And why can't every American have that decision to why can't they decide what happens to their body instead of government deciding that.
That's a philosophical.
Difference that Republicans and Democrats half and I believe in the individual I believe there are more efficient than government.
