You tonight a subcommittee of the house energy and commerce committee voted in favor is appealing documents the White House has kept seeker regarding its favorite Green energy giant.
But high ranking Democrats say complying with the committee's demands could cost millions.
And they warn it would lead to delays from the White House which could invoke you've heard this before.
Here to discuss his Arizona Republican congressman and good friend of the show David -- congressman's reichert.
As always it's a pleasure welcome back to freedom watch.
Got judge is going to join.
What -- where you see this going now of the subcommittee voted along party lines to issue the subpoena.
That sends a signal to the White House that if push comes to shove the entire house will vote to issue a subpoena.
That will make a lawful document with which they must comply or to which they must read -- in some way.
Is -- going to be a compromise on the gonna Stonewall.
Is this going to be federal judge deciding where do you think this goes.
Judge I'm gonna -- yeah I think -- it's been all sorts of stonewalling up to this point.
I mean how many times that we've been hearing.
-- there's a new documents.
It seems like about every 48 hours we get a new little tidbit.
On the store.
And this has been going on now for months and months.
It it's think about how many times the discussion has been and when did the administration know there was a problem.
Now we find out back in February they did the renegotiation.
And they had 75 million of new equity but.
What did they do they took the taxpayers and pushed them down on priority bridal we get second at the trough which were still trying to figure out where they got the statutory authority.
To do such a congressman's -- I don't wanna raise your blood pressure and you may know this already but some of the emails that came out earlier today.
Indicated that some of the president's folks in the west wing considered a bailout of Solyndra.
After it already have lost the 535.
Million that the taxpayers -- -- it.
That would have been throwing gasoline on to the fire don't you think.
All it it's there's and that's just the beginning.
Now we found apparently -- mail that talks about think.
Go off line use your web and email address like Yahoo! our Gmail break which if you think back a couple years ago.
Didn't the left just eviscerate the last administration for doing such a thing I sure hope they're still holding that same outrage for that type -- game play.
Are at a luncheon and I wanted a look at big picture congress much weicker.
-- the congress give this kind of money and unfettered discretion to spend the money.
To the president and his advisors.
Does of the constitution say only that congress can spend the money why should the president be picking winners and losers whether it's George Bush or Barack Obama.
In the first place.
Well if you're hitting one of my pet peeves I've found in my ten months here in congress.
When it's complicated when its top.
-- there seems to be a mood around here let the bureaucracy make those decisions.
Well I'll tell you that's walking way from the constitution it's our obligation to make those tough decisions.
And think about this this -- about loan guarantees.
Will apparently we do all types -- loan guarantees of the government.
I'd been told we even guarantee.
Egyptian are part of Egyptian sovereign debt so when you start talking about the liability you and I and every American taxpayer has.
It's the reason it's in the trillions and trillions of dollars.
You know I wish so many more of your colleagues thought the way you do congress much like and it's a pleasure thanks for joining us.
The revolution -- ten years.
