Disturbing and will be used instead.
To raise taxes.
Congressman Ron Paul seeking the Republican presidential nomination joins us tonight from -- -- good to have you with us congressman.
Thank thank thank you have accumulated you voted again against.
The debt ceiling.
Tell us why.
Beta because I've never gonna -- -- spending essentially have that many years I've been in congress say and I believe that debt was going to be a problem many years ago and debt is a problem so you don't get out of the problem of having too much debt.
-- -- -- commerce and spend a lot more and I think granting them another 2.4 trillion dollars where the debt.
So it never made any sense to me to do it that way just digs a hole.
Much deeper and I think it's harder for us to get out so it was a very easy vote for me but it became much he's here when I saw the vehicle they were using.
To create this super congress I mean where and the world did that come from and what is that going to lead -- that.
That is monstrous I mean -- -- you -- I I keep looking and looking I can't find any place it in the constitution where we have the authority to create such a creatures the super congress.
Are we going to -- congressman if we may we're taking we're taking just a moment here.
This is obviously President Obama.
Stepping down from Air Force One arriving in Chicago.
For what will be a birthday celebration tonight in his hometown you -- there were manner.
Rahm Emanuel has former chief of staff.
And some the president -- ready for what will be a very busy and apparently festive and likely lucrative evening of fundraising to fundraisers one birthday bash.
There is as I said the president and America Emanuel in Chicago.
Let's return to retain your congressman Paul and -- -- the super committee you know I could never funny thing in the constitution that would satisfy it seems to me a reasonable man namely myself.
That there is any constitutional authority for fast track authority for trade agreements.
This super committees have to be in that vein of how how will you proceed.
That is exactly right is creating committees to do the job and assume the responsibility that congress should do -- you're absolutely right on the trade agreements.
You know you I.
It's not the only area I think writing regulations.
As actually writing a -- so -- way back on what the executive branch should do.
But -- for the OMB it looks to me like.
With his super congress and committee then if we don't vote for what they recommend.
Oh and beat gets a lot of talent that's part of the executive branch and who knows that's the area where I think that they may be raising revenues closing loopholes who knows what -- they might be doing.
But it is not a good sign for constitutional government.
And the Supreme Court has slapped down a lawsuit brought by states and environmental groups.
That sought to.
When push powers over greenhouse.
And the opinion.
Written by justice Ginsburg made it very clear that the EPA.
Is the source and force.
In in establishing those regulations and in forcing them.
Our remarkable decision.
By the Supreme Court.
What is your reaction.
Well I I I think guy it's in Iraq rather clear article one that -- commerce disposed to write the law this whole idea that any.
Bureaucracy any agency of government.
Can write all these regulations that the law the -- one of the most.
Annoying to statement I ever heard said was not only do they write the regulations.
But what about the statement that Paul begala said wants a stroke of the pan law of the land kinda cool.
You know that tell you what the attitude EST you know about who wet what they think about the congress of what they think about the American people what they think about their constitution.
I think we should point out that was a very young and the bold yet.
