-- -- national -- continues to grow so does government spending.
Will Washington stop it spending spree before it's too late or will they simply raise our taxes instead.
-- right now is -- Republican congressman Mike Pence who joins us from the bureau good morning to you congressman.
Today morning state.
Now the bush era tax cuts are set to expire at the conclusion of this year and that's right while we've heard so much about.
Three or 4% you know we need to continue to tax them at a higher rate.
A lot of people don't realize that the middle class tax cut is also set to expire as well right.
That's exactly right the point we tried to make this weekend in the Republican radio address is that.
If if the democratic congress fails to act.
Taxes will go up on every single American at -- every single level if you got a a thousand dollar per child tax credit this year it'll it'll be 500 dollars.
Next year small business owners will see their taxes go up the state taxes will go from zero to 55%.
In a single year on family farmers and small business -- -- -- if congress fails to act taxes will go up in every bracket every category for every American.
Great and when the Democrats say well we would like to extend the bush era tax cuts for middle class but those.
Those are evil successful people at the top three or 45%.
The this so called rich Americans.
We're gonna continue to tax and at a higher rate than when you talk about those rich Americans.
Really you're not talking about Donald Trump or as a member of the Rockefeller family you're talking about a lot of people who.
Own and operate America's small businesses which is where a lot of people get their jobs.
Well well -- throw us let's remember this the worst economy in 25 years the economic policies of this administration which you've just amounted to more spending and more borrowing and more bailouts down as well as government takeovers that and the economic policies of this administration have failed.
And that the very idea that we would raise taxes.
On job creators.
During the worst recession and -- five years is just.
It it it's it's just.
You know it's from frankly it's astounding to millions of Americans as you point out.
According to our statistics more than half of the people that file taxes.
At the level where the president and Democrats say they -- -- cut off the tax increase more than half of people over 200000 dollars a year actually.
Small business owners filing as individuals I I don't know anybody in this country.
Who thinks that raising taxes on job creators in this recession is a pathway toward recovery.
What -- you know what we've got a couple of pulls it seemed to support that viewpoint do you approve of president Obama's handling of the economy 57%.
And do you think the bush era tax cuts should be allowed to expire.
Take a look at this only 27%.
Say that 64%.
Say continue going forward.
Congressman -- -- and I hope that means continue all of them going for I'm glad they're Democrats are talking about.
Preserving some of the tax cuts from 20012003.
Haven't seen a bill I haven't seen any proposal.
But well what we're glad they're talking about preserving some of these but again people need to know that they are adamant the administration said there this weekend that they thought the economy could quote.
Tax increase -- since when do we make economic policy in Washington about what the American people didn't -- -- standard we ought to be ten doing policies that Elise.
The trapped energy and inherent power this economy put Americans back to work all right a lot of people feel the same way.
Mike -- the Republican from Indiana sir we thank you very much for joining us thank you.
