Rate we would be very -- -- I know let me declare an end here.
Before you get started we saw you standing right there with John Boehner backing this plan and I know you didn't always feel that way.
Tell us why you changed your mind.
We'll be rich I say is reminded because I realized after looking at it didn't -- the number as an understanding of the planned city actually hits on the principle that we were all backing in the cut have a balance.
-- act which we passed in the house.
And then moved on sentences senate where Harry Reid.
That had a vote to table let's.
You know the American people haven't even heard what's gone -- in this plan.
We have the principles in place in you know it isn't much of a cut as we want.
I'll say that first and foremost but what it does do is -- -- to get.
To -- point where we're building a bridge to the future.
And you know we've just got to be putting uncertainty in the private sector.
That's -- this is all about the private sector is gonna be the one that creates a solution with job creation all right we'll congresswoman.
This past -- pass tonight.
Well you know the votes are coming are being counted right now I mean as far as where we're going forward it down to the wire.
And I feel at the end of the day that we're gonna have the votes because I believe that my Republican colleagues are going to come and they're going to rally behind the speaker.
I know there are -- -- some holdouts there they have concerns about issues I -- -- -- -- again it's not everything you -- it's not -- it's not a 100%.
But it's about 70% of what we want.
And if we can't instill some -- some security into the private sector if you really want -- -- -- August I had date.
The -- I I hear what you're saying -- yesterday Senator John McCain had something interesting to say He was talking about.
Essentially that He thought the Tea Party was was doing the wrong thing by attacking McCain -- was trying to pass this plan do you agree with his statement.
We don't this party has very strong core principles and that big core principles -- all that says conservatives believe that.
And I do believe that they are holding our feet to the fire they're saying to us listen Washington we're tired of the gains were tired again -- We want real concrete answers and you know I really believe that although again this isn't perfect.
It's a star -- -- we need to put in place I think actually they've been very helpful.
-- also want you to respond to something congressman Stutzman had to say.
About the Tea Party if you can listen to this.
The Tea Party movement and many others that share their views have had a monumental impact on the debt ceiling debate.
Know this if left to its own -- is.
Washington would have completed just another per function or -- raising of the debt ceiling or worse more taxes and more spending.
Call -- -- -- -- much you like.
I call it Tea Party and others who wish to fight to get this country on a proper fiscal project to directory true patriots.
So I mean respond -- comments and then get it.
Are you gonna bring everybody in -- I mean is this gonna work can get all Republicans to vote for.
I don't know that we're gonna get all the hoopla I mean you know we and we're we're we're we're working across the line we're trying to get Democrat -- as well because we understand that the bet a better plan would be a bipartisan bill on message that we can move it forward to the senate.
But as far -- this the Tea Party you know patriot absolutely.
You know we all got elected with a lot of tea party's support.
The 2010 election would not have been a significant without the Tea Party -- they do have a place in all that well.
You know it's interesting you say that because I think the speaker of the house is actually called this a bipartisan bill so wouldn't you know.
He believes that he's got both parties' interests in that congresswoman for your help tonight we really appreciate your time.
Gonna be with you --
