When you -- then it was like this today do nothing at all I can't get over the fact are we paying these people just to show up.
We used to at least put -- child.
Now they are -- feel full.
That they don't put -- -- The Democrats would like you to believe advantage because of the Republicans in filibustering.
Not true why not your -- Because when it comes to the budget -- -- the only.
Time that a filibuster is not permitted.
May have one hour should hundred hours of debate -- votes -- jets hit a hundred hours and if of that hundred I wish you much a vote.
And so this nonsense about that the Republicans are stopping it for the last.
Three years is not just to Democrats -- afraid to vote on the Obama budget it's that bad.
The last time Jerry.
They had a vote it went down 97.
I don't want to vote on -- -- there -- Republican bills that come to them to that they don't even they're gonna bring a -- there's no vote out and why yeah well.
The Democrats control what gets to the floor.
If you're the majority.
You can put things out -- doing a minority.
You're virtually held hostage is that because it does filibuster or is that.
Just the way it works Harry Reid can bring anything he wants to apparently can bring anything up there republic -- needs.
Right at least forty votes this topic.
So if it's if it's -- good legislation they're not going to filibustering.
But when it comes to the budget.
No filibusters permitted.
And so this is a lot of non actions they they don't want to put Obama's budget -- because they'll be embarrassed.
There was -- Republican -- offer amendments Republicans will make him vote they don't want to vote on this budget that's a bit in his.
Looking need to get fix this though there's -- I mean come on which they should there be some collateral rule change well the -- was made to limit.
Debate on the budget specifically.
To make sure that a minority could not keep the majority from doing its work.
And here you what you have is the majority.
Democrats saying oh no we want to look at that is why.
Because they're going to have to vote for things which you run these deficit up and make -- even bigger although I trillion dollars added to that which we have.
And they don't want to go -- and campaign usual politics.
They don't want to go home and say yeah I voted to increase the deficit.
Another trillion dollars which hitting your where the president had to say about it -- react to that here's Barack Obama.
Some of what's.
Broken has to do -- the way congress does its business these days.
A simple majority is no longer enough to get anything.
Even routine business pass through the senate.
Larry simply the figures in that area acts since we have not speak truth it's kinda like he's he's millionaire's tax and by the way.
There are some people who make over a million dollars into -- attacks from them.
And -- to it that it goes to deficit reduction I think it will be Ford but it millionaire's tax is -- tax on people making 250000.
That's just hope come.
This business about -- the filibuster.
Is not true when it comes to the budget.
Is all you need.
Alright and then minority cannot filibuster and it's not permitted so Mr.
President if you happen to be wrong.
Well I gotta ask you about this add before you go World Trade Center redevelopment project the prices are going through the roof we want to show our viewers here.

That was it tremendous political boondoggle.
It is spread out over the years -- and one nation to build the memorial number two -- should private sector you wanna build you build what is government doing.
With the British candy with the British sky tractor scrapers and what we need the government to build them.
So we it was a giveaway of taxpayers' money.
And -- it's not your money.
And -- the government man who spend it but if wish it was private money you wouldn't have had these runaway -- shame on them.
They law which is a number and administration.
Sharon is the memorial they should have built.
They should've let the private sector coming in build and not the government.
