Bruce and if the president doesn't -- the fourteenth amendment he won't need the blessing of congress -- you're talking about my next guest says.
That's a purse and it makes them wanna save the album Republican congressman Joseph Wilson and South Carolina joins me now all right congressman.
Being a fellow southerner.
I know you know that discretion is the better part of -- -- the parents out there don't worry about cursing during this segment it won't happen.
All but ones that well with you -- the president decided to use that fourteenth amendment to raise the debt ceiling what it.
-- it would be wrong and actually the President Clinton raising that today.
With the president himself but the White House coming -- -- the gang of six with the senate coming up a plan B.
All of that is a diversion -- from what's happening tonight we have a substantive positive proposal.
Of cutting capping and balancing.
That's what we should be doing we can cut spending a 111 billion dollars tonight we can also voted to cap the growth of government.
To not be greater than 20% and then the balanced budget 49 states have a balanced budget is so I think all of the action which is incredible.
Has been great for the media today when Bill Clinton went President Obama with the senate itself acting.
All of all of it I believe this in response to the very positive proposal that we have tonight and I can't wait for the American people to find out more about.
Cutting capping and balancing.
-- congressman Wilson this is gonna pass the house at some point time tonight it's presumed.
And then it'll go to cloture on Thursday in the senate it'd be voted on presumably on Saturday in the senate.
And also presumably be voted down -- Well I hope that the American people speak up and that's why -- the diversity we had today I mean this is remarkable to think of -- President Clinton surfacing.
Suddenly appearing and proposing that the gang of six of something he has not read his wonderful.
And then the senate itself coming have a plan B.
Then again people don't know but we do know that cutting capping in balancing we'll work for the American people and and to create jobs.
But it has to go to plan BN -- it looks like it's going to have to go to plan B on Saturday night we're gonna have to move in that direction.
What is plan B for the Republicans in the house.
No plan B is not part of the house and that is that really is deferring.
The power that the congress has -- people voted for last November.
They've voted for -- cutting spending.
That's what will be working for a -- claim they actually.
Passes on to the president extraordinary powers beyond what he should have been so I'm just so hopeful the American people speak up.
For a -- capping in balancing won't.
When you -- -- it doesn't happen if it fails in the senate and the president has already said.
Even if miraculously gets the descended you will not sign it what -- you call for next week as we get to within one week of August 2.
Well then we would push to override the veto.
I I just have such faith the American people that they will let -- represents know that indeed.
We do have a wonderful opportunity here to address the budget crisis by cutting -- in balancing congressman Wilson we do appreciate it thank you so.
