I put what about -- whimper of Wisconsin.
Senator Ron Johnson tomorrow senator Johnson more direct -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And so when analysts had been on Israel William Coleman by people -- try to figure out some way to get out of being on.
And not incur our routes so.
That we say -- stuff about a month.
Different no this kind of dangerous hit here but that rotates -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What's going on missile start with the debt ceiling to dreaded word -- -- them.
Well obviously you know amassed it would John Boehner plan and it crashed and burned here yesterday when the -- you'll find discordant -- -- realizing that there it's only cutting.
Accord CDO about five billion dollars in the first year.
And -- what would that the problem -- not gotten is nobody really talks but real numbers in this town.
The talking about cut off the baseline -- they're not cut they're just reducing the rate of growth.
And you know -- really if you really serious about -- that's a trillion dollars.
You better be talking about a hundred billion dollars in the first year.
Because actually -- you lower the base line -- actually get a credible trillion dollar over the long term.
And so that's kind of what -- into the bigger plans.
And -- -- -- -- -- -- I just don't really believe that the political class here is come to grips dealing with 2010 election.
And with the folks like myself became your -- on how to keep party became here you know what I and I -- these companies -- bunch of crazies.
-- but we're not.
You know we're patriots we love this country we realize that we are bankrupting America.
And we're just try to come to this trump -- trying to figure out what -- pulling off and how -- we six.
And -- that we're -- here in our attempt to do that.
A lot of Tea Party garbage and all I -- -- war cover about subject -- There's like you know us -- say it is -- goes -- Goofy hats on it is demonstrations and that's true of any party.
Well what war what war woke me up those -- got a -- miles of what wedeman.
On our I'm for a lot of stuff therefore I'm not a part of the Tea Party but everybody on the -- But first thought I'd look are not remembered Tea Party either absorb these guys that BP -- to give a speech it's Tea Party and sort yet.
Specter and health care debate.
And you know this is here is -- rare pre election yard I don't started this six months before the November 2000 -- election.
And as -- go talk to groups of people.
He talked about -- how how you realize how precious America's.
And how we're bankrupting people come up yet -- capital speeches and -- trust me I know -- order.
The people come up to me actually 1995 cent people's legal god bless you for run right and you're in our prayers.
There'd be people tears in their eyes could be love this country that all the people put this thing you -- adjustment seat don't you change.
Don't you let Washington change you.
And that you know again that's that's what you cabinet freshman class we all went to that's -- experience.
We all saw the passion in the American people about trying to -- this country.
And that's that's that's what we're trying to hold the line here that -- why we're trying to stand our ground because.
All these all these cut the people are talking about the fictional they're not real and we're just trying to hold.
The politicians here in Washington accountable.
We're trying to make sure that you'll fit all these all these plans are actually real.
And and currently I'm here are required on cable.
Just -- this plan them because this -- -- but there's gonna be reward.
Cause got to ask -- drew support but additional know.
Until it's been reworked front.
And what's what's been happening over the last number of months here -- you've you've got a couple individuals deal had been negotiated behind closed doors.
Don't present probably got engaged for weeks ago.
I know you are actually don't know local players are actually don't understand -- -- We must as we're talking about a three point seven trillion dollar a year budget -- another way put it down three point seven million.
Million dollars large.
That's probably the federal government is you can get a couple individuals negotiating that behind closed doors I mean isn't certain it's ridiculous.
-- Yeah I mean how healthy they expect anybody to comprehend that how can we expect a big take a look at that independent a couple of side -- -- -- order not.
Talk to us senator Ron Johnson from -- Wisconsin.
Don't become sort of lowest default on our obligations.
-- I don't wanna do that -- I think was -- campus some sort short term deals that we can actually.
Debate a real solution and you cannot isolate your there's a real solution out there it is called cut kept balascak hasn't -- a whole lot -- If we only because these negotiations.
Cruel sucked all be all the air out of the room.
We were able to really put this on the table until last week.
So it is a very recent polls about -- we're gonna fix this problem we're Gannett first cut first you're spending.
That are in share do that you -- -- truly doubtful accounts got to -- hundred billion dollars this year people -- its triple.
Debt what we do is we need to -- -- increase.
The group -- a good growth in spending cuts are not cutting spending we're talking about just.
Limiting the growth and spending we had to get extra early and I think -- for actually ever solve the problem.
We have to have a constitutional amendment that limits the size of government in the eastern balanced budget I don't ever -- the political will mr.
-- and due to prepare bankrupting America -- that -- -- constitutional limitation.
So are the Democrats so there's another saying as you obviously know.
That that you guys -- -- -- raise taxes on.
I don't know all of them on -- slot are on in the private jets and awarded -- -- the end of they do and the -- -- you're saying.
But even the -- billion proposed not only by the present but by the Republicans and number -- -- -- fundamentally we're just land.
But your concern immediately talk about cutting you know if you're pure project you -- ten -- out where the fiscal discipline -- how do you have any guarantee that's gonna happen.
LP actually got a hundred billion dollars this year that -- baseline.
And in so you can project out you know if you got a hundred doing this year -- camp felt pride that you trillion dollars for the cuts that's a real cut.
But if we're talking about cutting five billion dollars this year and as saying well -- out and -- -- -- cut one trillion dollars it's simply not believable it would never be enforced.
So I we have to put hard spending caps the fiscal discipline straitjacket I don't care what you call it we have to instill that fiscal discipline first.
Before we can expect these politicians Washington Serb part certain spending.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- I mean here's a problem with with increasing taxes.
You know week.
No matter what actually -- -- talking about.
You tell me how many jobs that tax increase is good news is gonna create yeah it just doesn't you know I mean the number one component of the solution here is economic growth.
And they are down -- a small business guy I hate special tax deals I mean ever I never lobbied Freddie I wasn't -- any violence.
I tell you what what most most people into account here are happy to take a look at real tax loopholes calls and but certainly a lot of you know to say absolutely yes people who architecture for but we're not gonna get that in time and have a step feeling.
So I entered closing new factor -- -- A -- even it was so short term some -- of service.
After talking would be my guess that there are in our people that we can actually get cut -- balascak -- hearing because.
Still 66% of American people already say they support -- -- -- 74%.
Want -- constitutional -- when the size of Dartmouth.
I think that's pretty good place to start from its reasonable proposal in India and if we pass constitutional -- which is certainly to the states.
We'll let the American people decide if you wanna put that this would just put on Washington I think in the end -- given -- choice they'll choose to instill that fiscal discipline.
Well -- service and made been made just being -- some original sum total occurs in -- mention.
-- -- thank you very much senator Ron Johnson Wisconsin their national import Oslo -- are gash in my.
