I welcome back everybody President Obama had a strong advantage to 2010 thanks to the legislative victories.
In the lame duck session of congress but Republicans are preparing to take over the -- And naral Democrats minority or majority in the -- -- so what exactly is in store for the president's agenda.
In 2011 we're gonna ask Allen Coulter has.
Alan Colmes show -- didn't -- him are you on good all right so first up let's talk about the book health care GOP say they're going to be good defense defund it would.
Try to repeal it -- -- -- -- and I have kind of thing that you do it -- say repeal and replace but they have yet to say what they can replace it with this like is say we want -- cut but they get to say where they're gonna cut so.
They can try to repeal it I don't think they'll succeed in spite of the recent.
A decision in Virginia to other courts so upheld -- so.
I don't see it happen so you'd think -- would -- -- -- -- -- there could be a danger for either side -- spent too much time on this well I think it's danger for Republicans because a poll out just yesterday shows that while many people may oppose it.
They oppose it -- -- not liberal enough -- people -- like it or they don't like it because it's not progressive enough simply to say people are opposed it.
Opposed to it.
Look a lot of the -- -- the states trying to call -- a Clinton have a clarified is can't believe that -- attorneys general last I -- -- fifty states that's not a majority.
And I think of doing it for political purposes -- people -- -- -- -- in Virginia is a far right wing conservative.
Who opposes Obama but if -- the polls show the American people either like this plan or want a more progressive one.
And about thirty some odd percent don't like you know that was gonna get changed at them and I thought I think I think they'll let me some minor changes that people gullible what do they wanna change they want to take away healthcare.
From children they want to stop punishment for preexisting conditions what part of it that they really want to take away obviously there are parts of the mind whether it's too expensive.
Well critic they also don't seem to realize that this wasn't perhaps -- as well at that event.
How expensive it would be without this plan the premiums and -- go up but an awful lot less what this plan and more people and an economically and what you'll be put in the system the more it pays for everybody.
The average family pays a thousand dollars extra a year for those who are who are not insured.
People have insurance -- subsidizing those or not.
Until this plan Campbell got to move on a few more points to get to -- of course unemployment rate is what I think nine point 59 point eight after the data set yet.
I'm so what exactly will the president do.
You think to.
Get it folks -- work and also secure his own job I'm hoping that the numbers that this can -- just say that your fewer people filing for unemployment is a harbinger of things to come.
I'm much -- how much the president by himself can do but you know this second tax plan.
That they came up with -- is really a second stimulus plan and I think it'll stimulate the economy certainly the payroll tax deduction.
Help people so I'm hoping that's instantly the economy.
And the jobs and start to come back and some people don't like that -- stimulus and then in enough.
Income you know a lot of the Republicans beer soda will -- -- the big political story of 2011 -- would be how.
The president gets along with the Republican guy will be the big story but he's already shown in the last weeks of 2010 these able to do that.
He's -- rust president of anthem comers like Fred right Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers I think he's done that very well.
In the last few weeks he has shown triangulation a lot faster -- Bill Clinton did when he waited six months to a year before he did it after he had a Republican congress.
All right let's move forward to about seven months from now July 2011 when the -- that he's going to begin to her withdrawal Afghanistan -- I didn't think that's gonna do.
-- to go and how would bode for folks are saying.
Where a quagmire you can't do that well -- on one of the airstrike distributed the president most is in Afghanistan 30000 troops of the cost million a troop a year.
And it is absurd at a time when the economy is suffering -- so what is really robbing us of our economic well being.
And I hope he gets out of Afghanistan I wanna see was -- get out now I don't know what victory means I don't know what win means and what we win by Spain and folly to think that after.
Decades of unrest in Afghanistan.
We're semi -- to go in there and fix things.
And then when we leave everything's going to be fine I don't see what that what awareness that you still do of course support the US military.
Let's support our military does mean -- support every policy.
So I'd actually support the military that's evidence supporting every act every military policy that got them understand this would clarify absolutely bank and be happy to -- -- -- every.
Helping couples that want to -- that nor does it mean you don't support the calendar year and I thank you.
