No thought I'd do little out of time it was shot out and so the big -- -- soon finger of Stuart Varney.
Here's for what needs for was -- to -- Well ought to cut capital balanced bill that that house passed yesterday -- for that I think I think -- has.
Well they're gonna cut spending immediately.
The amount of -- suspending that at at a level that is within the normal.
Percentage of GDP -- is about historically 18%.
And they're gonna pass a balanced budget amendment.
You know when you're when -- fourteen point three trillion dollars in debt.
And they still need another two and a half trillion dollars -- told me that you probably.
You know these guys are -- like crack cocaine to -- they can't stop that's how they accumulate their power so.
We kind of have to hand scuffled below that sounds reasonable yeah.
This city -- probably best fit aren't making sense do you I've gone way beyond what my obligation -- -- So what does the president on the present and a gang of six.
Also I just one other senator or what were one of the war what is their position to -- adjusted.
I sold just pissed me off we never heard about the gang of six of the gang -- seven until late yesterday -- have -- split late yesterday morning.
The president walks into the briefing world.
Steal the microphone from Jay Carney.
And eighties like for the entire world -- also debating cut capital balance which is bet on the table as a written proposal.
A real deal for a long time.
And it's like hang on a second -- what stop right there.
I got to know right now deal love me now.
-- so he's.
Going to pull it over he gets everybody all worked up over this.
And what made me mad about it Asia you've got you know some senator -- -- like senator Coburn.
And Saxby Chambliss.
You know -- one deal we ought to be paying attention to.
Ought to be on the table in the whole country ought to be debating cut -- -- balance -- undermining their fellow Republicans and the negotiating against themselves with another deal.
And then there's a certain deal going on what Mitch McConnell the last ditch effort if if in fact all else fails he's working with Harry Reid on -- -- -- And the reality is that none of these plans actually get to the root cause of the problem.
Congress spends too much money the country's gone bankrupt this president given us five trillion dollars in debt your kids my kids are going to be probably get -- And so I don't know why they would give the president that PR opportunity.
On the very day that I think the country ought to be focused -- -- -- a really good plan and the sensible plan that.
I think would -- the country towards a balanced budget.
There's -- thing that headline out earlier this past couple -- comments.
Does present watch and instills a microphone from Jay Carney is the president it will not Rick Perry's order goes don't know why don't breathe -- room at a.
On form angry at the Republicans for negotiating.
Against each other in other words -- -- -- united behind the one plan that's really good.
But yet the senate that is pretty much decided we're not gonna -- is really good plan.
So gonna steal your thunder and we're gonna give the president an opportunity to divert the country's attention that special -- -- So here's the problem the cut but cut to happen and and a -- Plan in.
Order to sounds reasonable doubt what's that I saw the president also happen -- Bennett.
Just another positive note and Simon guy and -- and -- of that but the planned.
But it was talking about that -- is the gang of six of its -- Brooke but also sounded reasonable.
To me is sort of -- -- -- and -- -- little little but just took a bold plans.
And there's got to be sucked out of both particular order to the other autumn.
Solve those prices and there.
Well the problem it let me just give it warden.
Every time they negotiate meeting conservatives and Republicans.
-- spending cuts.
And they agreed -- tax increases upfront.
Ronald Reagan said the one mistake that that he regretted.
When he was president he made a deal with Tip O'Neill he's gonna get my -- one dollar tax increase for every three dollars and spending cuts.
He gives up front the tax increases he never -- the spending cuts ever George Herbert Walker Bush same story.
Read my lips no new taxes he raises taxes he gets -- basically voted out of office for for going against this pledge.
Fundamentally we've got to decide this.
Trillion dollars which is what we take in annually as a country.
Roughly 200 billion dollars a month is that enough for congress are we -- -- live within those means.
Right now this president having quadrupled the amount of debt of George W.
Bush and his doorstep -- -- year.
This is bringing -- one is spending one point 65 trillion more than we take it.
I would argue have a spending problem now if mrs.
Imus and quiet Imus -- back kinda money.
You'll probably you know take your -- but you probably broken up and take their their bank accounts and -- and also about.
So you think no taxes are an -- attach front.
-- Mumbai I think world is -- are ready yet I think the worst.
Riots that you know.
And I I can't stand the fact that the president's been out -- lying in demagoguing about it.
But they're never gonna cut spending on -- -- not not just this administration's.
But no administration and ever majority worsened to spend -- so that last -- I think.
We need a balanced budget amendment we -- we have that in 49 states.
It works on the state level it's either in the constitution or its legislative by law.
The last balanced blustery that was on our -- our Bill Clinton -- bid on the but don't.
The big -- listen congratulations to him I mean.
The one thing I can say about Clinton vs Obama -- the Clinton was more pragmatic more practical he was not a rigid ideologues.
He made a deal with Republicans that I think the country benefited from.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I like Mitt Romney a lot I think I think odds are he's probably -- our favorite by far.
-- want to apologize to referred jurors -- -- on board -- Broadway.
-- -- -- -- Why was I watch and earlier I heard that those -- come out of your -- The tools designed to do watch an earlier this weapons -- -- -- You still can I ask one question that we've been friends a long time and -- every time you say the words.
My friend Sean Hannity is a little not -- and I don't ever grew so he's not.
Granola I don't know god ordered to Obama -- -- also -- notes about -- -- soap but I think collectively amounting to.
We want her to drive -- on actor great person diversion go to -- good debt good to a parent could.
Proposal until you've got -- -- -- for the sector -- about -- stuff doesn't mean anything wrong about everything she.
Better thank you -- -- meant.
