Congressman JD and Jason -- -- studio you're watching on our I can hear.
They can -- -- -- Zach coming you -- the podcast you can see him but he's dressed casual don't don't be alarmed he just.
This is you just hanging out plaid shirt OC you know I do see an edit super from the last we don't -- -- -- thing I -- onion.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You gotta be -- got a clip on a tie every once in awhile but.
Well congressman first off I want you -- year.
Guy from another network who doesn't usually criticize the president talk about the president's decision yesterday to -- -- from the shooting.
Two talking about how bad Republicans are and he just thought that was wrong here -- Chuck Todd cut eleven.
They're timing has been off on everything whether you wanna start with the speech to the nation which when the by the time they gave it seemed frankly.
Out of out of -- -- the minute he gave it right it was no longer the speech he intended to give there was this potential deal with the Russians at the time.
And he'd even get to that part of the speech until the end of the speech so.
The optics and the timing was off there -- look at the interview he granted today ABC he granted it on that Friday rather than on the Saturday.
-- gives the interview Saturday the actual vehicle gets cut in Syria and everything he says about serious completely out of date so any impact that they hope that that interview would happen.
Goes away then yesterday let's let's set aside the -- debate a minute you know who's gonna hear their message.
Like that to me would be the reason not to do the event yesterday who's -- listening what's the point.
-- and it's like -- yes you know you're gonna do this later in the week.
We'll do it later in the week that like what what good did we you know there was only when I was trying to figure out about why they did that is -- what positive was gonna come out of -- that Steve.
So -- which editor of the speech and say Republicans trying to -- -- government.
In order to in order to defund obamacare.
And talking about how you guys used to want to get along while twelve people are dead.
Three miles away well I look at my own staff we just have a handful staff there in Washington DC they are glued to their television because there's an active shooter -- like a mile away.
It's a place where they go in neighborhood where they eat and they've got friends they got people -- work there.
Don't know what's happening and the president and the size to give an economic speech that really it with all common decency -- have been put off for a day there's.
There have been -- nothing wrong.
We would all respect to -- president for delaying it one day in being sensitive to the -- -- got an active shooter may be even to other shooters up now -- And looking at the actual thing that you can talk about today I don't think with any without any problem -- talk about raising the debt ceiling in order to.
Not raise the debt ceiling or -- defund Obama to woody Stan.
Well I I wanna see a delay I think there is by part of -- obamacare -- really I really think that's the best common ground as the opening that the president gave us when he started giving out all these exemptions and you don't you don't have to comply get this thing is not ready for prime time.
We have voted forty times -- defund it -- will vote again to defund it if we get another opportunity.
But if you realistically looking at what could actually pass where could you get some Democrats support.
I think they would have a -- almost impossible time taking a no vote on the idea that we would delay it for a year to I'd like to see it delayed for two years but.
That's the directional -- He -- Sunday he actually -- -- Friday -- there on Sunday.
They never before in history and someone decided that the country shouldn't pay its bills because of peace legislation.
Meaning don't raise the -- -- the bills don't get paid obamacare doesn't get past.
Well look our our fundamental focus here is on families.
That this legislation is devastating to families we got people I've been in town hall meetings where I had this one woman stand and she said you know.
I I'm an hourly employee I was working forty hours now my employer came back and -- I can do 29 hours and I have to we get a second job.
It is just devastating every it's not ready for prime time everybody knows and nobody knows how the law all work.
This seems -- that -- it seems like the right thing to do it the right time it is not ready and it starts.
Would you leadership doesn't feel that way you know that -- -- -- Boehner don't feel that way I think we're getting pretty close there I'm not willing to give up -- yet.
You know sometimes you have to throw something now they're so you can tear it apart and say on and on and -- I appreciate their willingness to listen we also have numbers I think most people come back from the district workers are looking at their constituents and they're just -- where there's no way you're gonna do past.
