David Webb here in our New York Citi radio.
In our New York City studios there radio talk show host.
David Webb had a moment Tom Maher talk radio show host -- BB CM in Baltimore will join us.
And thank you for being here.
-- let me start with you.
The -- party's role of all of this we've just seen a number of the members we don't have an exact -- -- we don't -- -- -- down.
The number who voted against this proposition.
What role do you think the Tea Party played and -- -- overplay their hand here.
Well according to the vice president Lou we bunch of terrorists out here and we overplayed our hand in.
This is going to be terrible for America but I think it's kind of great that we went from being an irrelevant group to being the most talked about.
Actually lobby without having to spend a dime we lobbied and got our way.
And Tom -- joining us now from Baltimore -- your thoughts.
All -- my thoughts are I thought it was a bit a little closer.
But we're doing Washington math then it by that I mean there are no real -- slow.
This is cuts in the rate of increases but there is the balanced budget and I think that's what put it over with a lot of Republicans.
But still I can see where a lot of the Tea Party folks on the Republican side said no.
Because the real cuts are not there they are cutting the rate in the increase in spending.
The only place that kinda math works is in Washington DC.
But the balanced budget part I think there's good.
Alright David Webb Tea Party leader and founder of the Tea Party 365.
It hurt worse the Tea Party now.
Well we've proven that we can have an effect I agree I -- that aspect and of that because we wouldn't have this situation this discussion.
I'm not happy with the deal and I'm not happy with that because of what's not in it I'm happy the balanced budget is in there.
But I look at the practicality of it that when the president asked for another raise in the debt ceiling.
It's going to take both houses by super majority to override it.
What is the real chance of that in DC.
And why do we have our fourth committee coming up.
On cuts in DC you know -- yeah.
Because this it's -- congress hasn't got the ability to stand up and be accountable accountable to the American people on Election Day.
November 2 2000 drop right it's a very same reason that this president -- a long term agreement He got it irrespective of the right.
Which -- Organization -- which is the loss on our side the fact that the president is now pushed this past -- twelve.
Also push the real cuts and -- not tackled entitlements or tax reform.
I -- going to talk that this is a CYA.
And fact the Republicans are getting away with that.
The president is getting away with the real cuts mean real cuts no I think that your viewers should know.
That within ten minutes of here.
There is a very nice airport Reagan national seventeen miles away is BWY.
Seventy miles away is Dulles tomorrow.
If they had any -- bonus they would shut down the congressional air fare.
Air force that they keep at Andrews Air Force Base and nobody ever reports on.
It cost millions Nancy Pelosi balance that are back to the mourners say -- Clinton -- also well well you know the conservative.
Don't rule say that for another a round of budget cuts to prevent.
David enjoys I have around the globe -- we would like to add to -- -- -- plus.
Joyce your thoughts here what what is the impact of this agreement.
What do you think for political consequences are across America not just in Washington DC.
I think there's a great deal of disappointment Lou I think that.
You know all of this spent about how the Tea Party got their way is really not resonating with a lot of the people who sent everyone happy it would one.
Do not raise the debt ceiling I know guys who ran on a platform of I will not raise the debt ceiling no matter what and capitulated within the first week.
And then we and we -- not at all -- -- I west.
Who it was your candidate you're gonna be is chief of staff.
He supported let's turn this this deal -- -- are you what you're saying He was wrong.
He was wrong absolutely is wrong.
He's voting against this He knows it's a sham it's a fraud now gonna have a super congress.
Come on -- 535.
Guys can't figure out how to fix this Howard twelve -- to figure out how to.
Doesn't make sense well as some would say that it worked in the Politburo.
If there were being harsh enough time.
What realize them.
My my thoughts are that the American people in flyover country is.
The administration likes to refer I that I I hate I had -- they don't even use that express quite a bit but this is America I.
I don't wanna hear about -- -- -- -- my livelihood they treat.
America the the large swath of America.
That way there were no -- didn't -- and -- -- not using the derogatory about it it is derogatory I think it it's it's elitist crap.
It is it's absolutely that -- these are the people.
Who frankly have demanded and -- most of these freshman there.
And there are the ones we're gonna look at this and say did you let us down.
That's a congress.
Not necessarily the individual because they're discussed -- I government we didn't really cut.
We -- the debt can down the road.
The high and that's about it but that's another -- I don't about you guys.
Or the one of those lives -- -- to do Lou but I put understand that Americans have asked for action.
And what we're getting this kind of a nullification from both -- I will -- -- the Tea Party in both you -- -- A significant part of that of that movement but I got to tell you in my humble judgment.
The Tea Party ought to just be so proud of what you've accomplished across this -- we are we are at a very proud of this and this -- -- -- but let me say this.
When you to do when -- start criticizing.
Congressman west for making what I consider to be a responsible judgment.
-- for moving -- ahead you've moved the bar so far in nine months since Election Day that they I I can't think of apparel.
And I and I want to disclose about same thing my my hat's off to the Tea Party folks all around this country.
Tom are going to come back to you but we've got a word in -- at a time I'm in trouble on time.
Turns it off a great to talk with the David Webb thanks for being a great thing.
