And that is this seen as the national park police.
Correct their kids around the World War II memorial the other day.
This is power play welcome back.
And that act.
Monument there and other things have caused controversy not about the shutdown -- the partial shutdown which nobody seems particularly like.
But to this question of how -- shut down as being administered.
How good of a job is the Obama administration doing and administering shut down could it be modified.
Are hoping that that discussion will carry some sway with the electorate.
One of those Republicans who whom you have met before -- -- -- he represents a mental state of South Carolina congressman won't.
Thank you know thank you for having us were homeless -- were over here.
In your house over here it can't happen -- everybody is today I am not sure what this is -- we like in the cafeterias fold or shut down exactly.
Faced stiff back -- use of quote marks on shut down indicates.
Something that you and your conference are talking a lot about which has.
It's not all shut down and to give you just to scale of this Internet you're talking -- 825000.
Of two million or so -- government civilian employees military's excluded from all of this.
You talking about that -- that order of a partial shutdown and your point republicans' point is that's not we don't have to not fund everything.
We don't have to not -- everything just as we can't agree on every.
Correct and that's what we're gonna try and do -- we tried it last night and the Democrats.
It is down -- that attempt would try to do Chris was to keep the parks open.
And also to make the veterans administration stayed -- the services many of the medical services for veterans are on going -- hey they're deemed to be.
Essentially there's some back office processing and stopping them as part of the VA's which kind of get that funded as well -- trying to find that.
The District of Columbia which is a strange creature whereas our states and and local -- that -- exactly so that they get a little bit different treatment in some states do.
-- I was talking to Rand Paul on the phone this morning in the it hit the nail on the head this is not a government shutdowns and it would slow down.
That's shut down if you're one of the 45 roughly percent of the people who isn't parliament -- -- -- The government is still functioning wasn't joking about the cafeteria it's full eight hours a shortened from what the government is still.
And working and some of the essential services and that these sentences actually take place and I'm glad to know that that you know Social Security checks are going out that the military still being paid.
So it's not that we allowed the term shut down due to be used I don't know if that's really view that the best -- Right now I don't wanna ask you speak at a school -- you defensively Anderson which was -- you on the phone with Rand Paul.
Now is that a common occurrence for you are you do you does he talk to you a bunch.
Or how much.
-- and I -- our -- -- come and so we'll talk.
It's on yesterday and -- we had a conference.
-- outside with the Republican Study Committee.
He was there I -- -- little bits we talked about this.
We used to get together about once a week for dinner yeah -- Republicans in the house of the senate used to get together -- Jim -- was here.
That that we do it a little bit less than this year but now it's it's fairly.
Regular to have those -- -- There's been texting back and forth in the senate including senator Paul as it relates to what the house ought to be doing what the -- ought to be doing to help the house or -- the house and back and forth and Republicans speaking to each other sometimes shouting.
Across the their capital here.
The it was senator Paul who -- first convinced any of taking the whole thing to a conference.
Make -- all the conference he said let's just take this to conference.
Speaker Boehner took that ball it seemed like and ran with -- and said you know what you're right let's just take this to a conference -- reconcile this.
Are we seeing.
Some somehow the tortured in the -- in this relay go from Ted Cruz from landfall.
Well I don't know about that -- I just think if it means that he would John Boehner I've been critical of in the past them apparently you're on the record yeah I mean I'm very supportive what's happening now that I think John -- sort of got that you know the attitude that they could be good ideas from -- and that includes Rand Paul.
I was really surprised the senate didn't take that offer up that's unusual is not unusual to not offer to go to conference but -- refused an offer to go to conference.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Tonight's -- -- what -- it is and Democrats over in the house were having a press conference saying let's go to conference let's go to conference two hours later.
We did that -- down in the weeds for a lot of folks are a -- big I guess these are county diseases -- they didn't come here for -- so they said let's negotiate we said.
Okay we can do that.
So I think it's starting to have to really and I think the public is trying to get a feel this is who wants to shut down the Democrats do.
And for one simple reason they think we're going to get blamed.
Any time you did it in negotiation where.
I offer you a hundred dollars and you say you give me one and I have to unite need to see give -- one -- now for you ADC give me one.
That's not really negotiate let's tell -- if you want to deal and that.
That is what we head with the senate over the course of the last two weeks and.
It because and here you're saying that since you guys have dropped your ass from.
Defund to delay to provisions removal and then mandate then like credit that some things that that the Senate's energy but they believe they can wait she -- And they believe Harry Reid the president believe that they can wait you out.
And that by the time they would be the worst about public opinion and an outrage.
To go to the negotiating table that the Republican conference -- -- already -- each other's.
Lunch that's -- I'd like this plant will look where do we start this negotiations started negotiations saying look we are willing to fund.
All parts of the government except obamacare.
And here we are -- partial government shut down there was -- -- do tonight -- start to fund more parts of the government.
And in theory I suppose we -- fund the entire government on one of these one off type of yeah.
Still one step at a time and end up at the -- at the at the net result of funding the entire government except obamacare.
So I think it really does I like the strategy I think if it does send a message look we're not.
There's there's one or two -- -- here wanna burn the building down.
I'm not one of them that doesn't really represent the entire conference he's not saying who he's not all that I know but I'm good friends with a I -- -- out there at the -- -- the point of the matter is that you know that.
The offer that we needed.
What we are interested in funding the entire government.
But for obamacare and the more I think we take the opportunity to offer these individual bills we did last night.
We are gonna pass these singles tonight under -- different type process but they will pass tonight.
And we hope the message will get out not only did to our base puts -- independents and Democrats we are not in position again right now we're just isn't talking about how to.
And -- -- get rid of fixed -- whatever you wanna call Obama.
Congressman you may want to mention the Rand Paul that you all have an early primary in South Carolina you may want to asset and I think grant -- account you think -- seen that I'm not sure.
Congressman thank you and I met.
I'll be seeing you in the audience when we were in the Fox News Channel is our first debate in South Carolina and it won't be too long before we do you know it's not that far -- thanks -- appreciate -- -- -- the Internet out but it makes us sad because we're junkets.
Congressman thank you.
