Health care exchanges.
-- Republican governor Sam -- to as a right now goods in the -- good to see India honored to have this -- conference in Iowa and to -- capital to Kansas.
You have world it's because they I had -- some good meetings today that -- like yields more investment in our state you've always been very cautious about not taking everything Washington -- down your throat including on his softer stuff in May be.
The Supreme Court will will will give you.
Some justification for for because that's what it does it -- them and you have to so these exchanges that.
But as I -- campaigning I voted against Obama care I've fought against obamacare I wanna continue to and if we're forced to do it we will do what we have to do.
But until then -- wanna push -- -- but I can't I do not see how worried that if let say it does currency that you rolled the dice and now you have to move your client access to get these exchanges about.
If you probably do.
Have too but I would rather do that can be complicit in implementing something that the country cannot afford.
As you just saw -- 340 billion additional dollars on top of a debt and deficit that's enormous right now.
VI I I can't sit here and be complicit in something like that when we ought to be fighting pushing back against it.
-- -- briefly senator -- about it what the big ideas.
What are the bold proposals I mean yeah they're just Paul -- is the most herculean among them with a plan that's you know slash the debt.
But only the growth and and Canada and -- it.
It may -- things have gotten so big to them and and -- patrol when you remember from Washington.
That's a good investment counsel.
And but what what is the deal -- Republicans are they being the no because they're trying to.
-- cautiously thinking they can kind of backed away into the white house of.
I did I wouldn't I wouldn't call Paul Ryan Vanilla by anybody is one of the -- But there are others out and I think the real route forward is like what we did in Kansas had a 500 million dollar budget deficit last year.
We cut Texas.
And I've got to 400 million dollar budget surplus this year.
-- what you did is we went and looks at what can we eliminate eliminated some programs we didn't.
Touch Medicaid we continue to -- everybody that's on Medicaid.
And then you're really going to the real nuts and bolts of government the only mean I don't think anybody for 2030 years at least has really tried to manage government -- when you get until you find.
He -- voluntary buyout programs -- employees.
You can say.
What do we pay for utility rates what are we paying for rent -- and.
So what are your solutions are common sense brilliance believe -- and I'm a fan of a lot of -- bothers me that I think.
Looking -- history the White House changes hands when the other side.
Comes with some sweeping ideas.
Big ideas to say we will Barack Obama's four years ago the big ideas big switch and we had the nation embrace it.
Some -- Ronald Reagan after Jimmy Carter.
Do you see that at a Mitt Romney.
That would prompt -- that's a huge switch from.
-- -- -- I think that you switch would be on the spending and on getting growth to take place him and -- -- -- enough so we need someone say.
Flat tax or yeah attacks -- I don't hear.
That when we knew need dad and I think you're going to see more that when you get that to do you think he's too cautious.
I think he's been awfully cautious to date but.
Now you get -- -- -- the nomination it's -- get the nomination and in an environment where.
He wasn't the most conservative candidate to where our electorate is saying in.
We want the conservative candidate when you look at the Republican side is -- monies that we haven't really that great moderates.
I have great people that are moderates yes philosophically it's hard to move forward folks -- I'm a moderate.
No I did something yeah -- -- -- is very nice drama because they're open to different ideas would try to move ballpark.
But the big visionaries.
I don't know we've never look as -- Ronald Reagan moderate -- John Kennedy moderate FDR.
Moderate did they.
Change -- your future your your right on it but I mean you're not a modern.
-- and we're moving things on forward and hopefully what we'll see.
Governor Romney move into now is a much more aggressive.
-- embrace and flat tax relation optional flat tax.
One embrace these sort of cutting your push Charles do the big idea I think in and get -- now you you you need to now that your in the one on one -- -- You need to show the difference of how America is going to look and I think he will.
And I think he'll be a far better solution than what Barack Obama has been.
Which have been been very disappointed in his presidency so leads in the polls is that spreads.
A little bit but you haven't gotten the start of the match up want to run -- -- haven't seen the full effect of gas prices going up and if they continue.
Two and he got to get the public started thinking about okay what do I wanna do the next four years and I think wanna keep things are gonna say as we got to cut the debt and deficit I am.
Really concerned about that they -- developed -- and not myself.
-- I I disagree with that I think -- -- -- Kansas and I think there are people now saying.
Yes some want to share in the pain because I am so concerned about the future for my grandkids.
We're gonna go to and so hope springs eternal -- -- very good -- -- physically very very much what.
