Charlie Rangel -- you might find that surprising yet doesn't agree with a thing guy just sat outside of the bracket thing I guess is OK congressman aren't.
Yeah listen only appropriate vehicle you know we get the brackets -- -- have for the budget.
All right so he's way.
It's it's routine policy of positive revisions to be -- -- I guess we get kinda used to this.
But should wait.
Well let me make it clear that once the budget is passed it it has no meaning at all in the law.
And so that.
There is no compulsion for anyone to do anything.
-- and I hope so the -- agreement to the budget.
A budget -- -- really a statement of policy of the bodies.
And hopefully in the future we will not behind the policies.
So different and -- -- you saying that when you when you make a budget you shouldn't stick to it it's a joke decent even bother.
That's what you said -- -- nice that it has no credibility in a law that's what I thought.
Right but but but music because you are now it gets any ads and our credibility in the law but then -- -- -- -- -- -- -- best game of semantics.
Just not a game for people who talk about what -- party principles off.
Is not a game that's what the what is your oh my god what have your late getting those principles -- kinds.
As long as.
Does the principles that they -- the American people find out do you really think.
They don't hit anybody is going to sleep at night and this great country wondering when we've got to get the budget -- of course not.
What they're concerned that is -- -- got to get a job.
Will let me Social Security Medicaid applaud them and will be able to abide by the pool -- and that's not a.
-- assurance congressmen and part of that is getting that sense that Washington is going to help me in that regard.
Is honoring some of the things it has to do.
To keep this country gone but it is providing a budget.
Part of -- providing a plan part of it is providing a blueprint that either side might agree or disagree with.
Part of it is doing its job to provide jobs and that didn't make a mockery at a process -- -- very valid reasons congressman.
You're not getting -- -- -- much hope back home.
Let me make it quit just because it has no bearing in the law it doesn't mean that is democracy joke that's coming from the other side of the.
-- ask manager what I don't and I criticized both parties here -- -- well let's lately getting stuff done.
I've always making a big deal out of relatively small cuts.
Always making -- theater production over what are really slices off the growth -- spending.
Always scaring the be Jesus said -- the American people I don't even if you're laid on a budget.
Just don't how rang and act like it's the end of the world when you have an even presented one.
All I'm telling you and I don't think it's any challenge.
That this budget but was -- -- and the presidential election.
It was abundantly clear that what -- has put up in terms of what he calls a budget.
Which what he and mr.
Romney Randall on this so called budget was to Republican -- the president has won.
And now they bring this back to at a table as -- there was no election.
So do you think about the budget submitted by -- senator Patty Murray.
Which doesn't call for editing approaching balance of the next ten years -- increases spending.
And increases taxes is what the American people voted for back in November is that what they voted do you.
Know that there is no one that challenges that America's on the road to recovery.
And if you think of one minute just saying that you cutting spending.
That doesn't mean that you cutting.
It doesn't mean girls -- -- And they won't mind right even -- the Ronald and I've -- -- get -- we're cutting the growth abroad as narcotic addict but are you saying you know you're not spending is not in a well.
Congress senate it's -- yes -- -- do you think cutting spending should be -- bill.
Yes -- Should I think cutting spending this is how do you know of because what would you tell everybody -- -- budget cut.
-- is so much money that has already been cut.
If we had the Obama look this things that have been cut the -- -- knows it why because he took out.
This savings that we had in the president's bill.
And even though he's against the bills somehow he -- that the college your.
Saying that what senator Murray is planning what she wants to do is finally here -- even though it as effectively calls for more spending.
More taxing and doesn't address these issues.
I don't know what you get the more taxes -- personal let me make it clear trillion dollars -- and also how over -- years.
This two houses the I understand that and the -- the only democratic and I could see -- purpose so that -- don't -- -- so you can -- I'm on the house side and I understand that but they are starting the president's late.
This is all I got to don't want something I don't -- is -- like it or not.
Listen you can go on the Egyptian budget but it's not be put a House of Representatives has had outlined -- -- it without us that it is that it what I am saying this that brazen -- and you know.
Is not a contradiction of cutting spending that's all I'm saying.
And anybody -- sold any company.
Norris says that it wants to reduce the deficit by many don't raise revenue obviously -- not serious about -- the opposite.
Yesterday you know -- already raise revenue run by the -- the bottom line.
Raising revenue by close and we should be -- hard to -- tax loopholes if we.
-- have a deficit but we -- Have a guy that's unless you're raised -- as murder rates back to you just wondering if I didn't say raise taxes I say raise -- -- -- -- -- Republican.
Kids are all closing loopholes -- -- taxes because.
It's a rich -- may have -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now I have been apparently that didn't present that aren't -- -- that -- I'm sorry our congressman thank you very very much Charlie Rangel --
