Not Republican congressman Kevin Brady from Texas joins us now live from Capitol Hill in anticipation -- big speech tonight so Far East and congressman.
-- camp believed.
The President Obama after this huge build up.
We'll go out tonight and to a joint session of congress.
Promote same old same old extension of unemployment benefits extends the tax holiday eight that the State's infrastructure.
I can't believe he'll do just vast.
No not after a zero jobs report two and a half years into the recovery not.
Not two months into two and a half years into it I don't expect a surprise from the problem is.
You know -- still shopping on the -- -- and I think the market and I think consumers and businesses are looking for substantive leadership I wish.
You know my which would be he'd say look.
What we tried isn't working we need a fresh approach.
I'm taking tax increases off the table put and roll back the regulations and guess what I'm sit down -- Republicans and we're gonna find a way out.
Of our -- to mass.
I think that would give the market standing on their feet -- -- not gonna get that it's that you you don't think there's going to be some things about surprise foot in that tonight.
What was his what we're hearing outcomes when it.
400 billion dollar package.
But it will be painful by spending cuts which will be too tangled in a separate second speech sometime in the future be happy with that.
You know in you probably -- not hold our breath but those spending cuts at this what he's proposing frankly hasn't been working.
The payroll tax cuts which you know people love tax cuts but -- -- had for these in effect consumer rebates the last ten years.
None of them have -- all of them have been disappointing.
In the economy yeah unemployment extensions -- let's focus on the higher states that have the toughest jobs helping those people get back to work.
And the rest of it it is that same old same -- I don't see it moving the needle and all.
On this economy I don't get it I thought I thought this White House was politically very -- And yet now they're going to present a tepid planned -- a huge build up.
To a joint session of congress.
I just don't get it I I thought there were a lot better at the game of politics -- us.
I would think so too -- expectations except for this.
Could this be saved in effect said look after this -- is over with this a new game plan again on jobs it's like groundhog.
Today in new plan every several months that the market's gonna jump.
We're gonna see 200000 jobs gained each month.
We're gonna see -- dramatic decline in unemployment numbers and we know that's not gonna happen so I just think again.
He's got the opportunity with that zero jobs report to come out with a fresh new approach me in would get strong support for it.
-- I think he's gonna squander that opportunity but you will be you'll be in the time -- the -- right you will be an absolutely absolutely.
I may disagree with solutions that.
Jobs are number one this coming Republicans I'll tell you.
If He wants to sit down and get serious about real solutions we're gonna be there I'm Kevin Brady Republican from Texas always a pleasure thanks for coming back and show.
