Majority leader congressman Eric Cantor when he said we're not in favor of tax increases.
We're just in favor of revenue increases what's balance when you talk about.
I didn't have been -- out.
I'm in favor of higher revenues from taxes.
But you do that by stimulating the economy.
By getting out of the way so that the economy can grow.
That's what has happened in the past and digest on some folks from.
About how well their economies going and messaging you must've had.
And may need stimulus packages to get your economy going and they don't understand sarcasm so -- don't know -- though that's crazy.
Now we lowered our corporate tax rate to 20% companies came flooding it.
That's -- you were increased revenues from taxes -- lower the tax write you stimulate the economy that way.
I know what the administration is hoping they're hoping that we can create another census.

Earlier in the show your colleague on the the side of the capitol building.
Senator John Barrasso from Wyoming told us that the idea of raising taxes is dead on arrival in the senate.
Would you give us that same statement congressman go homered.
That the idea of raising taxes is dead on arrival in the House of Representatives it should be pretty easy for you to say that.
Well -- -- pledge that but then again that our speaker create had some folks put together a pledge that not a lot but I took out pledged to work.
And get a hundred billion in cuts this year not for part of the year.
But for a hundred billion in cuts.
And then as best I know we ended up -- with a 350 to Megan to show for those of us who made the pledge so I can't speak for our Republican leadership.
I can't speak for this person and many other Republicans I know.
Increased taxes are dead donors on arrival.
Unless there -- some deal made above my head that I flat against.
Because I certainly don't support that and I know most people I'm close to would not either.
If the last speaker Boehner and the leadership cut a deal was Vice President Biden.
To raise the debt ceiling is it true that many many many Republicans.
Including you will oppose that.
On the grounds that we have to stop the borrowing we have to stop living beyond our means and the time to do so is now.
That's true I've said there's no way did -- vote for a debt ceiling increase.
But I do have -- and less and -- it is such a tremendous game changer.
And that does not mean trading a few bucks here for a few bucks or even a trillion here trillion there because in those cases they're talking about.
You know down the road things they can come out you have to have a balanced budget amendment that clears the house and the senate.
-- more than enough to pass and stop obamacare -- -- Those are big too massive James -- change -- that would be effective but it doesn't sound like to me our leadership is going to push to that extent.
I -- modest support that kind of minor changes they're talking about making.
-- asked to be a massive game changer.
And I haven't heard our leadership talk about those I don't think that game changer is going to come either but if you guys and gals and the house stand firm.
They simply won't have the votes to raise the debt ceiling.
And maybe prosperity will return congressman John let's apply thank you for -- and you've helped create some stronger backed loans are not sure do appreciate that thank you sir.
