Have a read about the president has is that deal is ready to start spending again.
Calling for more unemployment benefits and the creation of an infrastructure bank supposedly to rescue the economy.
But -- the president believes more of the same will fix the economy that has my next guest wondering if will be the next Greece sooner than we expect.
Here to discuss -- Republican strategist Jack Berkman -- right so since this president.
He has borrowed four trillion dollars unemployment one from seven.
29 and a half inflation's about 25 or 30% and things like cotton.
Gasoline corn things that we use every day somehow He -- up by more -- and more spending.
Things are gonna get better.
What people have to understand that you know this recessions are healthy.
The government should step recessions clean out the week underbrush of the economy.
You get rid of everything it's healthy -- clear everything out.
You bring in new technologies new businesses you let things grow GM should go by the wayside Michigan should have all new businesses.
That's what happens that's why government shouldn't get involved.
But -- the government get involved.
It waste of the four trillion you spent -- and had no effect.
No positive effect -- what you just said could have been said by senator Barry -- water and president Ronald Reagan.
Today the Republicans and Tea Party Republicans Ron Paul they're scared -- Republicans are few and far between.
It is the John Boehner -- -- establishment Republicans who reject what you just happened I don't cut deals for big -- Look at why -- energy on helping himself first of all he's He might be both Boehner and Obama are losers in this because Boehner move weight to the left the tea parties -- to dump him not come September he's proven way to part of the let me shove this down their throat.
They don't like this I don't think He helped himself.
-- -- just afraid Boehner says things like up.
All -- government there should create jobs government shouldn't be in the business of of job creation that's a private matter what government should do is stay out when government stays out.
The economy thrives -- flourishes to pick up from what you you said earlier that.
Boehner is perceived as moving to the left is the president perceived by his base as moving to the right.
-- good point will will will stated differently will liberal source Howard Dean used to say the democratic wing of the Democratic Party stay home.
It's like its well that's exactly right for being here you hit the -- -- that's the most important political consequence of the whole thing Obama had already lost his base now he's really lost them.
Health care 09.
Gay issues other social issues the base hates him on all of these things now you add to that this which is the biggest whopper of them all they see him as having rolled on everything there -- no tax increases.
Which is like a religion to those people that's like some kind of religious faith.
They hate Obama He can't -- -- will not cannot I guarantee you in swing states like Pennsylvania and Ohio.
In Colorado and Florida -- -- desperately need the base that.
It'll stay home -- how to.
This play over the nation.
How does the average voter of you this because.
The way this is structured.
The president is going to be asking for -- second tranche of this.
The one point seven trillion within a month or two of what he's gonna ask people to send him back to the White House does He wanna talk about this in the middle of an election.
Oh you don't that He did you you don't wanna talk about the whole thing in all this just underscores the obscurity so okay so we raise the debt ceiling.
What do we do in eighteen months we have a replay of the same thing in two years we have a replay of the same thing would only do we raise the debt again and again and again and again until we become.
Portugal I don't think anybody cares knowing that you know the Democrats were.
It's almost like they needed some kind of mindless concession -- -- so we had to cut defense they don't even have any specific ideas for how they wanted to cut defense they just needed policies that I have to throw these people -- bone.
And you see how how how they play -- trivial national defense.
Just Michelle Bachmann Ron Paul Gary Johnson.
Where the only Republican candidates for their presidential nomination who spoke out against this the others were silent.
Do you think that means they really want that that -- up but -- -- -- say it.
Profiles in courage I mean in Michelle Bachmann has is an advocacy for anyone of the candidates but she really she believes Ron Paul their true believers they understand I think just what we're seeing now all you have to put the clamps down.
America would benefit more from a short term crisis in the stock market.
And a long term victory by not spending had we not raise the debt ceiling this country would be stronger today -- we're weaker today.
Got -- -- her but it's a pleasure thank you that -- is joining us an eleven year old.
