Obama comments stumped for you in your district or do you would you say it thanks a lot -- I got this -- on my own.
Well all of us whether we like it or not we are on our own in a congressional election and we understand that.
There are the tides that move they electric one way or the other we certainly saw that -- move to different ways in the last two elections in the presidential election that tide was moving democratic.
And -- last year in the mid term it moved Republican.
Where it's going to go I don't know but I do know that I will be working very diligently on the American jobs act which is the president's program.
It is the best thing we have the best opportunity we have to put people back to work but we have seen from my colleague from Georgia and the Republicans.
Is basically an austerity program cutting the budgets which lay people off increase the unemployment out there.
We need to go a different direction the American job recession has all of the -- want to tell you -- make it on American element.
You know I just had due to represent Jesse Jackson junior on the show from Chicago from Illinois Democrat and He was it was very forthcoming -- -- The Obama plan just isn't working for me I had said that that's so refreshing to hear Democrats say that.
But then I'm listening to you tell me that.
Don't worry it's this this next 447.
Billion dollars that's gonna save it did the the the unemployed right now when.
The first 862 billion didn't can't just say can you just -- well -- I went side of the congressman who's just standing in the stands exact same spot you are it's a it's not working we need to try something different.
We are trying something different we do know that the first.
Recovery Act did work.
23 million people actually can either continued with their employment or got employment as a result of that.
It did not continue on there was a hiatus when that money ran out.
And we went back to the doldrums we need to push ourselves out of the doldrums that's what the American jobs act will do.
Will it be enough.
I don't know we'll find out at the end of the day.
But first always got to put it in place there is a major piece or major infrastructure fifty billion plus an infrastructure bank.
That's important we're talking putting construction workers right back to work.
We also know there are significant tax reductions in it all of those things are proven to work.
While it's paid flat not sure why they're there's they're lies the problem leads paid for it's it's not really paid for so that's the that's -- investigator even though it really is paid one -- How -- I ever heard an idea I -- always there de LA this stuff well five.
Well I don't know what's your reading but if you were reading the information on how it's paid for -- see this paid for some 400.
Billion dollars over the next ten years.
Coming from the reductions in the read in the tax deductions that the super wealthy can take.
Forty billion to 3740 billion dollars from the oil companies.
Our tax money that we've been giving to the oil companies first century the most profitable industries are also you know for those on -- to know what we've been given what we've seen.
Is so far is there there are no leaks that that's what that that the -- for is we're going to be in fact Louis Ballmer came on last night held up the document said here.
Here the -- we haven't seen it yet.
You guys have access to that we don't have that yet so I would love to read data elected on my hunch is that all -- the paid for is a tax increase but I can't say that right now because I don't know for sure.
The congress -- -- -- last -- so we have that we're gonna lose your satellite last yeah.
I cannot give him because Johnson we need to go -- different direction and the truth of the matter is we're going in -- That same direction I guess He feels that it saw on the first Austin package one point two trillion dollars -- -- which is meant more.
When that was been in more than half that amount again and of course isn't that market I always.
Of a super rich people making 200000 dollars a year or more can only take 28%.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That means you're not going to be able to do that because they don't -- 18 but that's ridiculous.
OK bizarre world.
They have certainly do it make -- decision -- -- they can do it.
But the amount that they can reduce from that taxes will be reduced so that there will be -- a little more taxes most of that impact false and those that are making them.
Million dollars adjusted gross income and just sort of -- -- That's when -- -- -- allotment blowing Omar Helder got it -- document last -- the AJ the American jobs that He held a copy senate page 155.
