And that we are actually going to.
But I loans.
And competitive grants for new projects all across the country that will create thousands of new jobs for workers like -- So forget these super committee are looking for places to cut the president looking for areas to spend -- in congress to pass this infrastructure chunk of his jobs -- That carries a price tag a -- of around fifty billion but my next guest says that -- doesn't go far not.
Congress's decisions as a Democrat from Ohio joins in -- what I would love about this congressman.
Is unlike a lot of folks have both parties he doesn't go back and forth that he sticks to that position congress and very good -- you.
I hasten to -- some wrong positions are but nevertheless you stick to a kid.
We don't have the money and he's pushing and I know you're pushing we need more money for infrastructure -- their pride that gotten squat from back so why would this be indeed.
If we play this scenario -- of saying we can't spend any money until we.
The race the the budget deficit or race -- national debt.
We're looking at triggering a depression.
There -- however we have not just not repeating that the same way we spend money before -- tried something different.
Look at I'm I'm offered not going to you know.
Running up the bill for these wars that didn't have to be fought having a trade deficit with China that is sinking our domestic industries.
I'm -- taking a new approach they're making serious third -- system.
But we have to create fourteen million jobs right now and the president is at least making it starts with the suggestion.
About creating jobs.
You have a he's not gonna 1000 you know he's all over the map on this and and I wasn't just blowing you -- boards think agreed to disagree you have been extremely consistent on this.
He is all over the map and I think that's what's confusing the markets.
You wanna pull back on spending know you want more spending you want to pull back and infrastructure an argument so you want more infrastructure.
You do one speech in the financial community say you you feel a little bit of their -- Then you're in front a bridge to say the whole world is collapsing they're all saying the same thing sir.
This guy doesn't know what bases.
Well let's talk about how we get to third base.
And way to get the third base is to this for the government to spend money create jobs that's the one area that we ought to be doing -- I -- -- cannot -- and congressman and spending the money we have we haven't gotten and other than many teens is spent a lot of money.
Building up -- seems and they don't get to the playoffs so I know there's a history with wasting money.
But we are wasting money now on steroids.
And -- proposing spending still more hoping that the mantle -- change Disco.
Now and I'm I listened to your last guest -- talked about the Fed is considering.
Creating more money out of nothing -- -- to.
They called quantitative easing when you know what they're using the federal government's authority to do that we ought to be.
Spending money in the circulation put millions of people back to -- consider giving money to banks in this country forward even worse European banks.
Why don't we take care of our own country here with the resource in the power that we have that's what I'm advocating and -- President Obama takes a small step forward.
In offering a sixty billion dollar bill that would help improve the -- infrastructure well that's the least we ought to be doing and I'll support that.
All right but with all the money we spend and it's he'll do very few results I know there's a great deal of frustration and many in the on the you're under the -- the president -- -- -- -- there are many.
Blue dog Democrats who argue he spent too much and it's time to look at tax cuts like.
But the frustration on your -- the party the more liberal wing of the party is probable -- -- -- before congress when I'm curious.
Although many more -- saying the president needs a challenge just just to keep him on.
On message or to get a sense of his message -- since since it just -- and out of his arrogance.
Do you want to run against him.
Now I want the president to be creating jobs.
I want to present to make sure you'll need batteries were considerate challenged do you think the president should get a party channels.
I said before and you know I think it would be helpful if there was a challenge that we could make these issues is that no one has the name recognition of all the names mentioned out there have been -- site may -- Hillary Clinton.
So you're saying there's no circumstance under which you would consider a party challenge -- thrust.
I'm I'm planning on running for reelection to congress I I I have already said that the president.
Ought to be challenged but -- why not just for the sake of a challenge we've got to get America back to work I was.
I'm -- jobs and no one's come into the Port Townsend did no one does William.
-- we need to create millions of don't know that I don't you know what I just said it needs to be challenged would you gentleman's.
I yeah I'm I'm challenging the policies I'm gonna keep challenging the policies as -- a political stuff.
I don't know about that I've already made a case -- to why I think we ought to be focusing.
I'm getting Americans back to work challenge the president on his policies and maybe -- have the effect of causing him to go to the American people and rally the country around a new jobs program -- put millions back to work.
Over and beyond what he's proposing now -- so we you do announcer president please stuff by your congressman thank you very -- -- anything.
Very good see you again.
