Who focused on the fact that it was it was politicians that need to do the due diligence and cutting regulations and taxes to get the economy would we can't do it by pretty more money fact let's play the clip and get you to respond.
Now now now that's -- -- its -- I like to say but.
The business communities.
And private sector who are the ones that higher create.
Permanent jobs needs to be and SATA disk step on the accelerator and engage the transmission.
Are afraid that they dysfunctional government is.
Discouraging rather there are encouraging.
Business to do that.
It's it according to Richard Fisher.
According to Richard Fisher it is that politicians that have to do the work and and they're shirking their responsibility Richard.
Yeah there is no question and earlier you made a statement about that David.
It seems like the administration our legislators are always.
Looking for a magic pill.
Either by printing money or borrow more more money and and -- way past that point.
We have a spending problem and it needs to be addressed in and we don't need to be diverted.
And in our part in that is this to help hold our legislature and justice ministry.
Ration focused on that one issue.
David despite the fact that that the public seems to be.
Somewhat yet when you do you take these polls in the gas specifically are we spending too much money on government do we need sit.
Spend less money on government and and yeah Assam and they basically say things that are long similar than -- the lines of the Tea Party but the left continues to demonize the Tea Party we have Maxine Waters.
Just the other day saying the following about the Tea Party let's play the clip and get your reaction.
I'm a lot of red and big bad look.
I'm not afraid of any of that business.
Be right -- How does that kinda stuff actually end up helping you guys.
I believe so.
Maxine Waters we have heard tension which is fantastic.
And our role is -- Tea Party is to keep.
Our politicians and our nation's accountable.
For their actions were tired of them spending.
Our money in -- craziness.
But Richard it it's -- on the one hand you can you can get politicians'.
Voting them out of office which is what happened last November but it's -- get the attention of Ben Bernanke and the folks who bring money isn't it.
Yeah ideas saying I think collectively.
We as a nation and and we the people.
Have to continually.
Put more pressure.
On our legislators and even though we don't deal obviously directly -- if Ben Bernanke.
There is influence there's no question.
And there there's a drive now led by the Tea Party.
To let everyone know and to educate our public on what this is doing to our economy our nation.
And in our our children's and our grandchildren's you know worlds and futures I mean it's just destroying us and we have to put a stop -- David.
Do you think that there needs to be a push from the Tea Party perhaps on politicians to change the nature.
Of defenders -- -- not getting rid of it wholesale.
Although some politicians wanna do that but for example taking away their their mandate to on unemployment.
Giving them one mandate which is to maintain the value of the dollar would something like that be.
Be a thing that we might see the Tea Party supporting.
Richard said earlier we have a spending problem that we don't have -- -- problem we don't have any other.
Problem than our our were politicians just.
Politically spending money to get reelected and we need to stop that we need to have them focus on.
Being fiscally responsible.
For the people not for the politicians.
