Fox Business -- now brand new jobs numbers taking a jump.
From last week up to 343000.
People filing for first time unemployment claims.
So what does it mean for our economy it's been higher.
-- -- joining us right now senator Joseph Manchin and senator Richard -- but an exciting bipartisan announcement to -- but first things first.
Gentlemen thanks for joining us and I guess and imagine begin.
We -- -- jobless numbers are -- comfortable with that number.
I'm never comfortable -- those numbers now.
When you have the energy costs and energy prices closing -- in America you have interest rates historical lows and we can't jump -- -- its economy moving consistent way.
We've got to work together and I think that that Richard I have showed we can do that very well.
And I think -- -- you need to see more you have an energy plan -- financial plan we need to get our financial house in order that's a good thing we have right now put confidence back in the market.
Well this senator -- are you seeing that plant from the -- series of economic speeches.
Brian we're not this is a rehash of a twelve campaign we don't need to campaign anymore.
We need for people like Joseph and -- to get together to bring new ideas to the very able to find out a nonpartisan approach.
Where everybody wins in the American people are the ones that win in the student loan deal.
We've we haven't singled out a single group we've applied it to everybody and brought down rates and I think that drives economic growth.
You guys engineers plan and you push it forward and it passed so -- we -- now for the kids about to enter college for those concerned about the jump the experience.
-- about to experience last month where the rates at what's the compromise.
Experts are active -- it goes back to July 1 or any child going and student going to college.
Any undergraduate needs of our money where they get me -- subsidized Stafford or non subsidized who pay three point 86%.
That was a six point 8% in a lot of our colleagues wanted to leave their thinking that would be better in the long run.
We get -- and let me just say this.
The president basically start out with a market plan market driven plan once he started out in that direction.
Republicans but there's together we could ours we all got together -- and our and we made it work so with that type of leadership of the present he gets some good solid.
Financial plans and how we turn this country -- and -- get a good.
Good basically a fair.
That tax plan I think we can -- and run with it.
Consider very did you also do that has your version of the immigration plan so the senate on a bit of -- -- After -- -- half -- -- -- each other down.
But back to real quick which -- talking about the president's speech yesterday -- for an hour nine minutes I want to bring into one area and which I think you both can weigh in on.
And C -- the same reaction I did.
Here's the president.
When this endless parade of distractions.
And political posturing and phony scandals.
Washington's taken its eye off the ball.
Phony scandals when you look at the IRS been Ghazi fast and furious the NSA.
Do you think senator -- it's the right tactic called them phony scandals.
Brian I'm involved in all but one of the investigations.
On committees they're not phony.
That's what congress is here to do to provide oversight of the executive branch and to the programs that we.
We put into law and the realities are that we need to continue to find.
The answers to the questions of what went wrong.
Clearly the IRS scandal continues to grow in Washington and not in Cincinnati.
And I think -- is concerned that we get the trust of the American people -- government undecided on what we need right now is not speeches we need leadership.
And I can assure you that grow in this economy put the American -- -- to work bringing in more revenue.
Is going to enhance what Joseph when I and others can do in Washington.
Student loans I hope is just the first step.
And I hope the house shall pass it today or tomorrow first of next week and students who put their minds at rest of a warm Portland their parents as well.
Senator imagine Italians have a few person that -- Republicans seem to reach for a lot of bipartisan agreement there's a line like phony scandals make it harder for you to do that.
It makes it hard you know human nature is that you want to work with your friends you don't it's hard to -- -- your friends -- not build a friendship and relationship.
We have differences of opinions on things and I have different illogical beliefs.
Who we come together for the country first how does it really -- something we -- these relationships if not call him how many of us are talking about and -- and try to campaign against him.
If I raise money against him it's going to be hard for -- to sit down on -- -- -- what can we do together now.
That's just human nature and I'm not going to do that which is not going and we're working together we want to get things done that's what we were sent here to do.
And you do it with the loans and as I mentioned couple weeks ago -- I was immigration.
-- its analysis senators thanks so much for joining us today we appreciate it have a great weekend.
Thanks Travis Gregory all right.
