-- -- -- -- -- -- Thank you gotta present submit his budget your thoughts -- I thought tires that I am always digging for the pony and looking for you hope and I think the fact that the president did.
An actual -- propose some very modest changes in entitlement is at least a step in the right direction.
May be and I emphasize may be the present.
Is on track to try to begin negotiations.
On a grand bargain now whether we will be able to -- -- I don't know he just had another group of of senators for dinner.
There is an outreach and other way -- -- it hasn't been there before.
And I say his new chief of staff -- guy named Denis McDonough who worked up here on the hill for a long time for.
Democrats senators I think it's been.
Effective and perhaps convincing him that outreach to Republican senators and congress members of congress.
Could easily could -- -- could lead to some kind of agreement.
Well your fellow Republicans on both sides -- I don't quite -- such a rosy picture this.
Well I'm not trying to paint a rosy picture I'm just saying that this is -- departure from the previous four years.
And whether it comes to anything or not is not neither optimistic or pessimistic.
But I do say that the fact that he has proposed.
The issue of the change CPI.
-- price index on inflation on payments on Social Security.
Has angered the people in each party on the left you saw -- rather.
Vociferous reaction to that.
So all I can say is that may be the president sees that this country is headed for the ditch unless we cure.
The debt and -- program.
And -- and we're reforms of entitlement programs has got to be part of that.
Does your party have sort of that.
Sense of maybe besides just do we have apps in the public statements -- some intelligence -- with -- -- but do you think this a willingness on the part of the Republican Party here on Capitol Hill this sort of thing.
Okay we're we're not overly impressed me with the presence budget but we're gonna give -- a shot.
I think I think if if we don't at least give a -- if we don't at least kind of reciprocate and say okay we're ready to sit down.
Then I think the American people.
Are not well served we all know -- has -- the sooner or later.
Reining in of entitlement programs and tax reform we all know that has to happen.
And the longer we wait the worse the situation gets more draconian measures to fiction -- gonna have to -- Immigration.
You want -- move it faster.
That for instance your colleagues and Marco now you know not you know I'm with the -- don't want to move the process and sort of get -- -- a little faster.
No -- I think that this some.
How people keep saying that when it's not true.
We have -- had a meeting including -- rubio all eight of us had a meeting with senator Leahy he said he's gonna give upon a time.
A couple of weeks before he's even gonna have a hearing they could have additional hearings if necessary also one other committees that have jurisdiction.
And we don't see -- -- -- really coming to the floor before.
At the -- sometime in -- so.
We want to give it plenty of time and Marco Rubio has been incredibly important in this whole.
Process we've been through and we hear there's no space between.
Lindsey and I and and mark and Jeff flake and Marco but he's done a great job talking to.
People like you and other talk show host and others it.
And it's important.
The ads that's something -- get past like on a limb and say whether look at immigration reform with a two parties can agree.
You know -- had tough experiences in the past.
This issue but I think for example there was a poll today.
That show the majority of Americans overwhelmingly including a majority of Republicans.
If and that's a huge if this is that this to me is what changes people's minds for or against from against war.
The people are here illegally pay back taxes pay a fine learn English and get in the back of the line.
And that means in many year process.
That if if that's the process we go through -- they ought to be eligible for citizenship.
But first we bring them out of the shadows and give -- -- legal status after going to church screening.
At -- But it's a long time before they're ready to get a green card because there's a backlog.
Huge number of people that are are waiting already and we can't let them do anything but go to the back of the line.
North Korea is so a lot of Saber rattling recently and what's expecting any moment they could test another bush mid range missile.
In the event.
That a fires off a mid range this so.
Will bill and knocked it down it's not gonna hurt anybody but what's the what's the next step that happens to mean that is another concern line in the sand.
Before going I could just -- thing about that's important about immigration reform and that's a secure border.
We have ways thanks to technology developed in Iraq and Afghanistan where we can detect and apprehend people who come across -- border not everyone.
But we have enormous leap frog in technology capabilities of surveillance and that's -- be the key to secure border.
And we cannot give the American people a third wave.
Yeah one way when we gave amnesty to -- -- screaming people.
There's going to be another path to citizenship we cannot happen and insecure borders so that twenty years from now there's another group now as far as North Korea is concerned.
It's dangerous this -- a Klan he's -- so was his father and so was his grandfather.
But he they do have nuclear weapons they do have missiles.
Twenty miles twenty to thirty miles from Seoul.
He's -- DMC.
In -- -- artillery.
Which can be fired before we can take a -- And there's a city of Seoul with millions of people this is very dangerous business now with logically would he ever contemplate such a thing.
I think it's pretty clear this guy and his father and his grandfather didn't think like us.
We've been through a cycle of confrontation.
Aid and assistance to we've given fuel we -- lifted sanctions we've given food.
Meanwhile they've got the world's worst gulag of 200000 people who are virtually starving to death and being tortured and beaten.
To death in North Korea and the key to this is China that Chinese can't control what the North Korean state.
But I heard that -- for yes same story -- for -- summit of -- -- questions it if they fire off.
Another -- the mid arrangements and whether it goes and neo if it wherever it goes.
What do we do next I would take it out.
We'll try take it out but then well then let's say only gotten and that's the end of it.
Then we would show Young Kim Jung.
That we can take out those capabilities -- can show that to lose to him.
But again there's other ways that if they unleash the north Koreans that.
Especially -- -- proximity.
To the DMC.
It's very dangerous.
Irrational behavior has caused more than one war because -- The other side thought that they would behave in a rational fashion it's obvious that this guy doesn't.
-- -- -- -- thank you thank you Greta.
