Thank you -- -- toll from parents now to Republican congressman John Mica of Florida who joins us to talk a little bit about.
Of the president and good to see by the way.
The this speech today is going to well it's gonna do a couple things one it's gonna advocate this Buffett rule.
Millionaire's tax let's start there what do you make of that.
I think I'd never seen an administration that wants to divide the population more than this administration.
Hitting you know have some have -- them I just think it's the wrong ways ago.
Can we talk to the top of the the broadcasters just had -- stents -- from Barron's on -- talked about how.
You know both parties essentially do this and I'm and I'm sure the president's doing it.
They lay out a political ground when they know full well that what there.
Advocating for what they're pushing in this case maybe this millionaire's tax has little chance of actually happening it's not gonna pass it in one of the houses of congress where they don't have control.
Not the same time in fairness aren't the Republicans doing that with this this Ryan plan it's dead on arrival and senate.
-- the Ryan plan as responsible approach -- approaching seventeen trillion dollars in debt.
We're passing on to our.
All live the credit that we've.
Who we've racked up but.
The credit -- as someone asked the pay that bill and you have to be responsible so.
The president you know he's pointing fingers he's trying to cast blame -- trying to divide this.
The American people unlike anyone we've ever seen set.
I think it's the wrong way to go -- we need to grow the economy get people working get regulation taxation.
It's unnecessary off people's back in and let people go to work.
Here's what the president is gonna say about that plan not to take.
Take away all its headlines -- and that is what he's gonna say about that plan that you were just talking about -- -- the Republican budget of the Ryan plan is gonna call a Trojan -- saying that it's thinly veiled.
And his point that he's gonna try to make is that the Republicans are trying to say hey we wanna we wanna fix the deficit.
But what they're really trying to do is impose some sort of a radical agenda for change on the cut on the country cuts and cuts and cuts.
And that's not a recipe for growth and you'd respond -- But we want to do two things first you've got to stop some of the spending it's out of control.
And he set the baseline so high that anything we tried to do -- to make reductions looks like a cat and it's not actually.
I kept the other thing too as you've got to the only way you're gonna get this engine of America going is to have.
Small business and business in the individual expand.
Employment opportunities it's not gonna come from Washington program to stimulus didn't do it.
It's a private sector when you try -- when you try to it.
Artificially stimulate the economy and what happens is that the real market really.
Sets -- so we're trying to cut spending stop the deficit.
And then encourage and provide incentives for business and the individuals to explain -- expand.
Employment opportunities I think a reasonable approach.
It's kind of interesting debate though between what that.
What that balance would be -- cutting cutting cutting and spending on certain things you know and what transportation for example which obviously you've done a lot of work on -- Where is that balance where hey we can spend on certain things and invest vs cut cut cut in other areas.
Perfect example I just passed after the Democrats had control of this place for for four years.
Huge majorities that just passed the long stalled FAA bill it accounts for 10% of the F.
Economic activity in business in this country.
They couldn't get it done and what we did is we we did it without any earmarks without any tax increases and we cut some programs that were crazy.
Dollars subsidies -- hairy -- Per passenger subsidy for -- Harry Reid's airports that's the kind of stuff that has to stop the American people.
-- Washington that act responsibly cut where we need to cut and then be responsible.
Not make government to grow bigger.
Actually make it to operate better.
All right good conversation we're gonna get the democratic side of a little bit later on the -- congressman mica from Florida thank you for joining us from that you don't appreciate it.
