-- is worried about the GOP holding the line on taxes he's here with those right now -- It it has seemed several times that the GOP -- leaning toward that some sort of compromise.
That would have included tax sites.
Well first Charles.
Let me say that whatever I'm doing a radio show.
If I see you on the TV I go to commercial.
I've been watching -- items such a huge -- I really am thank you do you do an incredible job now.
Cancel the rest of your guests because off.
We can go the rest of the hour here that looked.
This is a spending.
That problem it is not a revenue problem.
Has amassed more debt.
-- since he's been in office.
Then all of the 43.
Who came before him.
And this whole thing about tax increases on the wealthy.
Barack Obama's tipped his hand on this many times he -- -- handed Joe The Plumber he tipped his hand to our Charlie Gibson.
It's not about raising revenue.
It's about fairness it's because -- Barack Obama.
Think that those people and have that money.
Don't deserve it and I'm gonna take it a -- problem and give it to people who I think do deserve it that's not the role of government.
I can I refer to my notes trials like its regulator out today okay okay -- the Brazilian economy growing at 5%.
-- Chinese economy I think is growing at a rate above that.
But if we.
Everybody talks tax increases or spending cuts how about growing the economy.
So why did the numbers.
If we grew the economy.
And kept the tax revenues as a percentage of GDP at around the historical average of 18%.
Then in ten years.
We would get one point 72.
Trillion dollars in additional tax revenue with out -- one tax rate by one basis point.
And without cutting any spending.
But as you know -- think about corporate yet but still like I got so -- here because you know obviously what you're saying it is a logical.
But by the same token from the president's point of view well let's they have -- people in this country paying federal income tax.
It's a pretty good strategy from his one of -- to -- the politics of envy.
You know -- class warfare in those kind of things when I -- of confused about.
Is why the Republicans.
Seem to be bending why do they continue yesterday Mitchell O'Connell came out a plan.
That quite frankly confuse the heck out of me more than anything else.
You don't remember Howdy Doody and Phineas -- -- gonna do that nobody sounds funny.
No but you've never seen -- -- -- in the same room with the same time that.
Mitch McConnell that is a here's deploy we elect Barack Obama raise the debt ceiling at -- -- blame it all on the Democrats.
In the look.
It's Democrats that know how to play that game not Republicans the Republicans have never told that game off well.
They have to stick.
They have to dance with the person that Brung them to this dance and the person what -- them.
Is those who want less spending smaller government and lower taxes.
And those people are not gonna dance to Mitch McConnell -- and are not gonna danced to the -- -- be too.
If they want Nancy Pelosi.
Back -- that speaker's office overlooking the ball in Washington DC.
Then cave -- on -- -- -- Give Mitch McConnell his little ploy which I think is deal way anyway.
And then you know what by luggage because you're going to look for somebody to move.
After this guy gets four more years with our or somewhere to move after this guy gets -- -- with our economy.
You know -- will there's no doubt that the president all of his policies revolve around ideology and that economic -- but.
You know you talk about.
Raising the GDP by 5% do you even think the president it you know forget if he could ship all the ideology.
Do you think he possesses what it takes to even be able to -- that does the president.
Who never ran anything really you know you know that he never -- -- payroll check.
Does -- have what it takes to really spur this economy does -- understand what -- takes.
Well -- we doesn't.
But let's go back to Henry Ford when Henry Ford was involved in a libel suit suing somebody because they called -- -- And I they had somebody they had Henry Ford on the stand can you answer this question can you answer that question.
No why can't.
But you give me five minutes and I can have somebody here who can.
So that's the key he doesn't have to have all this knowledge he just has to have a core philosophy.
Of artery in the free enterprise system that got us to where we are and -- at the advice the advisors and the knowledge.
That he can -- assimilate to help him attack this problem this guy is an anti.
Capitalist he believes that people with wealth.
Drop that wealth by cheating -- scene and taking advantage of other people he doesn't understand our free market capitalist economy.
And on the week we somehow have to over -- that it either either educating.
Or ditty not of the way and put somebody in there that doesn't understand.
Or you know we've got a minute left you know what about the idea of re educating Americans because before we -- always proud to pull ourselves up by bootstraps and now all of a sudden.
It seems that you know what.
What we don't have that sort of pride that we once had said that inner economists call it animal spirits we need someone to tap into that reminded -- it to the GOP.
Do they did do they have anyone I can do it.
You know -- those animal spirits are right now Charles they're in the Hispanic immigrants in this country.
That Hispanic Internet immigrants legal and illegal they urge you ask operational -- as for the people that were born in this country.
They've been through our government education system by and large they can't tell you the difference between a profit and a profit margin and here's the shocker.
This is by design.
You go back to the formation of our system of government education and you'll find essays papers comments documents from these people it said hey.
Let's educate these people enough to be good workers.
But not to the point that they can become a threat against star power now we're experiencing the results.
Neal Boortz you know what would street we probably could've done -- -- thank you very much for the compliment for your time -- -- that.
I'll fly up there anytime you want we'll see.
