Thirteen thousand critics of the mainstream media say that major news outlets all protecting the President Obama.
Over the weekend though I -- -- I personally I detected something of a slight shift case in point -- cheapest questioning of Maryland's governor Martin O'Malley.
On all we better off than four years ago -- -- really pressed him -- not Republican congressman Allen west.
This from Florida and I suspect you disagree with me I think you believe the media -- still very much protecting.
As an Obama -- so.
Well I think Stewart and good morning to I think that you start to see some people in the media pull back away but overall you're not seeing that happen.
And I go back to the Sunday talk shows when you have so many people going out talking about how Mitt Romney was not provided specifics.
While four years ago all week gap from the Obama administration was hope and change change we can believe in.
And now you see this new theme of being for which -- the Knowles says is an old Soviet Union thing.
So when you look at our unemployment numbers when you look at the fact that consumer confidence is down.
When you look at median family incomes being down.
The fact that we passed of almost trillion dollar stimulus plan that was supposed have unemployment at about five point five to five point 6% that's not happening.
Small business startups are not happening that's not growing.
So while we got the star press in this administration on the true economic indicators out there which are not -- America we're far worse -- we were four years ago.
It's it seems like the Republicans over the weekend got to jump on the Democrats just as they stopped that convention by asking that question on you better off now than four years ago.
What you're up for reelection this November since nine weeks away is that a theme that -- going to be pushing in your district for your reelection.
Well of course you have to because down here in South Florida one of the key things is our seniors and our seniors are already start to see doctors dropping them off of there.
Medicare covers because the reimbursable rate so low.
We don't have a sustained what -- called the doc fix and also they know very simply you have a health care law bit once we were told it would all the cost not earn forty billion.
Now is close to one point seven trillion.
It is twenty new taxes one of those taxes includes something near and dear to our seniors is dividend tax increase which will go from 50% to 43 point 4%.
So is very simple when you look at where we were on inauguration day January 2009.
To where we are today we're not hearing any type of plans or any type of policies tax and rental store -- -- may think they'd better.
And I'm very concerned about a stealth quantitative easing part three.
That is emanating from the Federal Reserve right.
It's gonna happen congressman who's gonna not only is -- I mean he signalled very clearly he's gonna print a lot of money.
Mario Draghi is -- is saying look I'm gonna buy those Spanish bonds I don't care what happens -- bottom.
But I I just wanna get back to in -- error in your district in South Florida.
I wanna get back to the Medicare issue because that has always been traditionally a Democrat issues they would win them all back issues.
Now you're telling me that in your district -- you -- a lot of seniors using Medicare that's been reversed and you are using it as a winning issue for Republicans.
That's a real -- us.
Well this is part of the military strategy you went on office should never went on defense and I think that's why you -- has come out.
And asked that question the Ronald Reagan -- so you better off.
When you get seniors understand that you're looking at about -- in the seventy billion dollars -- cuts to part a Medicare.
Billion dollars of cuts to part B Medicare that is going affect what we are provided to our seniors right now.
Paul Ryan's plan the house budget it does not have any changes for anyone in Medicare.
55 years or above so we're protecting and preserving Medicare for future generations all we're doing.
Is we're gonna -- -- competitive bidding process we're gonna have any premium support plan -- you gonna have an option in the future I'm 51 years of age.
And so I'll be able to have traditional Medicare or Iraqi go into a -- of support plant and I think that which will be indexed income and -- -- can understand that.
Because if you look at that's -- support we've got twelve years in Medicare is bankrupt.
You know without military background so I -- -- 39 you look at that that's just in the the story -- on -- trying to expect it.
It goes and Allen west always a pleasure thanks for joining us that we --
