-- fact of the matter is.
There's an issue and the issue is that there is there are a number of false.
Are in the Republican Party on Capitol Hill are entertaining the idea of raising taxes they're doing so as some gesture of good faith but it's being met by an intransigent.
Our posture negotiating posture -- or sincere and utterly the in this broken by this administration.
We but the fact is.
The idea of a incontrovertible.
Unbreakable pledge seems to be remote.
Now -- you agree.
Well now we have baton here before during the discussion for the debt ceiling increase last year.
There were Republicans -- said well if we put revenue on the cable.
There where you.
And it was very obvious very quickly.
That the Democrats had no interest in any spending restraint any entitlement reform.
And let the Republicans thought they were doing was embarrassing the Democrats now I don't think Obama or the Democrats are capable of embarrassment.
When it comes to pointing out that they just want more people's money to spend.
I think that's what they do all day I don't think this embarrasses them but some people think that's -- negotiating strategy.
Here's the challenge we need to focus on the fact.
That Obama and the Democrats have no plans no entitlement reform.
Or just talking about tax increases when that's the -- That and the balance of power in what's going on in DC chefs what -- argued for a couple days now is that the negotiations -- need to be in front of she's been cameras.
Because that the White House the president's out there saying I'm I'm working on that's -- -- -- -- front.
You're losing me partner I need to understand what you're saying and it look at it in sometimes I have limited comprehension.
Archie percentage development of our ships in the fact is that the numbers are gonna change only with the new congress.
And if we wait till the new congress we have a balance of power that is not particularly helpful.
To the Republicans in their position therefore we have a fiscal cliff if you will tax hikes a budget cuts that will.
The incipient point is January 1 -- -- thirteen as you know.
-- stops this country from going into that situation.
The danger -- that Obama overreached his mandate.
Number four years -- four years ago out he miss -- mandate.
And he took a 70% approval rating and drove it down below fifty in a matter of months by spending too much money.
And he thought he was so popular they can do anything he's back he did that he not.
Is gain control of a six of the economy with obamacare didn't.
I mean -- he did pass yes.
Some substantive re regulation of our financial.
Industry in this country.
You're not exactly easing concerns.
Hearts out there who were worried about what the Republicans are going to be able to do.
On your heat and -- our regular where I was lying -- you grow over.
-- as a person who supports entirely the idea of low taxes and maintaining that posture in certainly doing so.
Energetically if there is no quid pro ball.
-- -- significant order in spending.
But what in the world -- these folks to do on Capitol Hill.
Harris and here's my argument.
The first thing Republicans need to do is insist that the negotiations -- in front of C -- So the American people can see what Obama is and isn't -- until that happens that the Obama can keep misrepresenting.
What's going on.
-- and they need to say whatever agreements -- needs to be online for seven days so that the American people can read it if we have those two things.
The the chances of being completely jam is greatly reduced not down to zero but let's get C span cameras there -- -- -- program I think you can -- I'm of that.
I think your conditions preceding would be more difficult to negotiate that resolving those tax hikes and budget cuts themselves.
It it sounds to me like Republicans in your viewer and a very difficult position.
And lack of strategy that role producer resolution.
And that we -- where we began that is awaiting leadership from 16100 Pennsylvania.
Well we're not getting leadership from the White House were not even getting participation from the white asked that that happened last time when we get this.
With the debt ceiling increase same thing happened them.
All right -- -- good to talk premiere thanks for being here remember -- world is big.
