And I see you welcome back to Washington -- to be with her groom.
White guys have gotten pretty busy first -- -- them that I highest taxes when you make of the the taxes tax situation.
In the stomach and.
Well looks like they're going to be a lot of games played with very -- to establish the Republicans only care from the roots.
Republicans are trying to establish some.
In the time of recession like this we should kick over all of the all of the tax relief because you just don't.
Braves Texas in the middle of -- recession are really tough time what we're having right now so I think -- have a bunch of really feckless votes.
And then all -- when we're gonna have to conclude that this thing to do is to pick it over for -- we -- and and and that means keep the terrorists can actually for life and don't increase anybody's taxes and -- -- -- -- their jobs back in order.
My -- it appears that we that no I don't have -- members of consciousness and it's Democrats close to him on the floor and went -- -- eleventh.
It seems like the process is being game -- the subsidy issue about whether it's gonna happen but even that order -- Well we're gonna have -- we've -- deal with this -- we've -- since 2001.
That this is gonna happen that's virtually the second -- lake's economy.
And it seems to me that because the house.
And the senate and the White House has not been able to resolve our deficit is it kicked it over to this is bipartisan debt commission.
And and so they're not doing -- work.
Our government I don't think -- that the fourteen votes movement that commission just not.
Well I think they're trying and -- and in the work they've done I think it's very effective work I don't agree with all of it but there -- some very very good suggestions shows that the ministry.
Group they've come up -- a lot of interest in suggestion.
-- that we have that we ask.
Others to do this system isn't the job of the house and the senate and the White House to do this -- the fact that they have to have a commission is good because that that they will face the.
You're darn right -- in the benefits of him for years.
To straighten this and to do it has to be done to not have the largest tax increase and mystery.
You know be popped up on January 1 now they're saying well my -- we don't have enough time in November of course we do now they're gonna play games with.
And I think agency one day after another where the Democrats -- bring up.
We want to make permanent the the middle class tax -- that we want to.
-- of the those sorts the so called Russian prime minister senator and 850000.
Small businesses in -- so called rich.
That are going to be making over 250000 dollars a year that they put back in the business for jobs and they create about 70% of our jobs in this country maybe it's it's.
So a lot of games are being played but in the end.
I don't think the Democrats can afford.
To -- this over and have these taxes and everybody the way they're about to happen.
And and frankly Republicans aren't going to give -- on this because we know don't go well.
That the best thing to do is probably taken over for a couple of years.
With the -- relief as that is and then work it out over the next -- so in a way that will be acceptable to everybody.
Another issue that I'll be here about who -- suits -- -- Health care and that's I understand that you have found -- with a number of other Republican senators a friend of the court brief -- Florida.
Well that's right without a friend of the court brief there are now twenty states contesting.
The individual mandate.
And frankly I think you can and -- a job killing -- -- -- as well that the individual mandate in our lives is clearly unconstitutional because.
Under article one section at the commerce clause of the constitution.
In order to have that applicable.
You have to have a sentence of activity in comers this is -- activity this is forcing people to buy something they may or may not want survive.
And force him to buy a certain level of something that they may not want to buy also if the government can do that to -- no -- of congress can do that to us.
Then there's nothing that the government can do to us so this is a very important so ambitious I also believe.
That there'll be probably and and -- station Jordan that the elections are over probably before the end of the year and I hope that's true.
Let's sort of issue because it's also if that individual mandate is thrown out.
-- Florida or or -- -- -- in Virginia Missouri and any other action might -- -- is that that we'll.
Got the entire though because that's the primary funding of the health care bill.
Well as you know you as you over you know I -- two bills one to do away with him for a minute.
And another to do way of individual mandate if we -- -- those two bills.
That means it Democrats and have to sit all of us and work on health care in -- way that doesn't bankrupt the country.
Which is what -- bill's gonna do it I don't know.
Really anybody including many Democrats -- won't admit that it's a disastrous bill's gonna cost us.
-- be more than it's and that it will benefit us.
And in the end.
And in the end it could benefit the country could certainly hurt this country very very best way.
Which is -- -- -- a bad message to the American people.
That it's it's like a bad student -- night for an exam is that you long known about this the American people are stating minor league.
Secret of his services and other you know topless and advertisement.
But the Democrats who control the legislation -- what they've known about this and Republicans for that since 2001.
And you push it right up to the line.
As -- a winner in Miami 200 the American people are sitting and waiting asking congress give us some direction -- We'll keep in mind have been impressed -- -- for congress and and 2006 so four years they -- to -- and rectified this -- -- -- dumbest question question question of the goodness of god awful.
Government controlled health care system that isn't gonna work and they know it's not gonna work I know what's gonna happen.
If President Obama is reelected he's gonna first engineer and say it's not working we need to go to -- single Payer system another word socialist medicine and have they almighty federal government.
But overall force -- we do that.
My guess would deserve -- I'm gonna say we're not gonna do that and keep in mind.
Over the last two years that had overwhelming majorities in the house and -- that kind of solve this problem.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That's right you have 59 Democrats and then my gosh what -- and -- and frankly.
That the that the time -- sixty.
And then of course Scott Brown elected so -- For them to -- that there's none of time is just crazy.
-- I know what has to be done but they're gonna prefer to play political games -- -- to try and make Republicans look like there.
Before the rich when in fact we're for the small businesses the seven -- 850000.
Small businesses in that area that create jobs that will be hammered by.
What the Democrats wanted to and they don't care and they just it's all politics of them and I have to say.
Unit irritates me that sometimes -- some politics on the Republican side but we don't control anything.
Especially in this lame duck session we've got 59 votes.
They can do just about anything they wanted and they could have done it for the last four years but at least the last two years for sure.
With overwhelming majorities in the house and overwhelming majorities in the sense 59 senators and 61.
Senator thank you and -- -- that -- Masterson you know you're that you're doing the lord's work.
