Tonight on the docket circus -- side shows and -- Nonsense first the circus act reports tonight suggesting that Democrats on the super committee want to cut the deficit by yeah.
Spending 300 billion dollars on a -- stimulus.
I think they'll be able to find that by raising taxes and cutting Medicare.
They're throwing around a number of around three trillion dollars in total deficit reduction.
The super committee circus got a sideshow warm up tonight -- a protestor claiming to be from the 99%.
You know what background is crashed -- -- -- demanded more taxes.
She was swiftly removed from the premises by Capitol Hill police bottom line.
It takes a lot of taxes to offset 300 billion in new spending.
And then still cut the deficit by trillions.
And what are the Democrats are quickly walking back this leak.
And insisting it's not a formal proposal.
Now for the nonsense Republican presidential candidates.
Have been busy offered bold new tax proposals to change the way Washington operates that is all but -- all but assumed GOP front runner Mitt Romney.
Who was 160.
Page 59 point plan makes few major changes to the tax code.
Today governor Romney visited Capitol Hill to court lawmakers.
For support at his tax plan.
I I like my tax plan better.
Attic as you might not be surprised to hear which has a number of features my my view is that the the key to a tax policy is to reduce the tax burden.
On the people who have been hurt most by the Obama economy by the Obama -- of course He likes his own plan which includes cutting corporate taxes reducing government spending.
Eliminating smothering regulations.
Expanding US energy production of restricting the power -- labor unions.
But -- these just lip service governor Mitt Romney implemented state run here and run health care.
Raised taxes and backed bailouts when He was the governor He flip flops relentlessly.
With -- poll numbers.
Our first guest tonight is a deficit hawk and -- true champion of small government but he's also a supporter of governor Romney.
Can He be both.
Here to discuss his former Republican congressman and my good friend in freedom watch regular congressman Connie Mack congressman welcome back to freedom watch.
Great to be with you judges always how does a champion of the constitution of the sound dollar of small government.
Who voted against the bail -- who voted against the continuing resolutions who voted against the ability of the government to -- the 2.4 trillion.
-- the big government Mitt -- You know it's it's pretty simple judge here it is Mitt Romney is the only one that can be Obama.
And if we continue to have Obama in this race.
-- -- we continue to have Obama is the president that means more taxes more spending.
Bigger government and less freedom for all of us Mitt Romney has a proven record in job creation this country all of this questions about.
To me is is kind of a side -- in this well we need to do is cut spending.
And Mitt Romney understands that I understand that.
The super committee -- fortunately thinks that one point two.
Trillion is a cut when all of that is is an incur are a decrease in the rate of growth rates spending are we need to get back to the principles of cutting spending.
And getting our fiscal house in order as we've all said and judge I know you agree with me we it's not that we have a revenue problem.
We have a spending problem I think what I do agree with you on that -- but I wanna ask you this are conservatives of which you are one.
Our libertarians of which I am one going to be faced with a choice.
It's anybody but Obama it's not somebody -- love it's not somebody -- pick it's not somebody we have fire and our belly about.
But it's anybody but Obama is that -- 2012 it's going to be like for people like you and me and the folks watching us now congressman -- Well I I fully endorse and support Mitt Romney so I'm not being dragged to the party.
I think He -- got a record of job creation that is important for moving this country forward but he's a lot of concern I would say you know -- there's nothing conservative about.
Judge what I would say is that as everybody who's on the -- right now they need to get on board.
With with governor Romney and need to support -- campaign we need to take back the White House we need to take back the senate.
We need to bring fiscal sanity back here in Washington.
Everybody that's watching your show knows we cannot continue with this Obama administration -- about it and Mitt Romney can beat him all right.
The super committee you you cannot be happy.
About what kind of machinations are going on behind the scenes.
Where US and elected member of congress are shut out for a moment.
Where US and elected member of congress can't even debt -- -- whatever they come up with can't even debate on it it's just going to be an up or down vote.
Two other members of congress Republicans or Democrats liberals or conservatives progressives are libertarians agree with you.
Yes there is a lot of concern in the congress about what's happening with the super committee look.
I didn't support the super committee in the first place I don't know why the congress we get elected to do a job and yet we're gonna turn it over to a super committee and what are we gonna get nothing.
They're not get even the cuts that have been that the -- super committee was told to do are only a reduction in the rate of growth.
What does that tell everybody we're gonna continue to spend more money.
Borrow more money and that's gonna lead to ultimately tax increases if we don't get.
Our fiscal house in order if governor Romney becomes president of the government stop borrowing will -- start living within its means congressman -- If -- if governor Romney becomes president we will Begin to reduce spending.
At a greater rate than is being talked about right now we will get our fiscal house in order.
And most importantly we will get job creation started again in this country because the governor Romney and myself recognize that it's the individual.
That creates jobs not the government you are good Amanda let me throw some punches that you thanks for joining us congressman -- Thank you very much the.
