As -- at a moment ago they're being talked about these fiscal cliff negotiations but specifically the offer on the table now.
From the administration that has been well let's just say not received so fondly on Capitol Hill by the Republicans Martha MacCallum joins us now.
On the telephone talk about all of that from the Fox News Channel Imus is off today Martha so we.
Not gonna talk about your love for the British royal -- I don't is that because there and talk about there have my lips against talk about your money guys.
-- net earnings so this offer its I think the Republican line is well that's absurd and now I guess where we go from here.
Yeah I anything just look at negotiation you have to turn -- ask yourself.
What they're -- -- a lot of folks are scratching their head -- -- but.
You know one sort of political line of thinking is that.
In the opening.
Gallows so to speak if you goes those are.
You give your apartment in this case John Boehner who will be the main negotiating person with the president -- -- -- -- The economic command to say well you know we got back.
It -- for 500 -- billion dollars in.
Tax increases that would -- -- -- now week that the to drop the fifty billion dollar stimulus altogether.
You leave them a lot of -- to say that they negotiated have -- now.
Whether that's gonna make you know house GOP Republicans feel satisfied that this deal.
Is very -- off.
So market does this feel like the debt ceiling raising negotiation and we went to just over a year -- It in -- -- look at an OK and I think are reasonable people are thinking about how you deal with this you know -- when he did this -- sequestration.
Idea it was to make something that was so important that they would want to get to work on it much earlier make -- they would maybe you don't have to get to this point.
It is seen that this kind of he had -- politics is the only thing that forces.
Washington to function and I think a lot of people are an uplifted by the segment that -- today.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- As the president has that's -- it kind of fell.
-- -- -- got his program.
Actually they're completely little wonder what the American people are feeling about it you know and they had they and it just completely.
Fed up with this whole process -- scared.
In many cases about the future of ballots covered up a -- but of course economically.
A lot of them are and it and I and I think -- it's gonna be tough to answer is the American public that.
These folks have a best interest at heart really.
Rents is collective purpose which is what he's going to be doing I guess -- tries to sell that the plan this whole idea -- -- quote unquote permanent campaign.
Although the president himself thought I guess his first term that's one of the things he didn't do so while Scott make his own case I assume that's why is doing at this time -- trying to.
That having that that and other help the kind of fascinating is that because this thing that the president spent a great deal of time talking to the American people -- the first -- But it -- that he -- that he was not able to communicate health care in the first -- And it is very effectively he did -- that you know.
Managing to pass it but is it's curious activity give any about a time that he did -- -- -- that speak to the American people think they'll but he dependent respectively yeah.
But it was built in the try to do it in the second term government policy.
To look at protest but I think I bank.
At what might go up or better yet out I was working in a block as I have mine -- just you know.
A lot of -- obviously you know profits with people from both parties -- -- that rampant and having people see you at work really trying to hammer out a deal.
Michael a long way with the American people.
Not yet perhaps not taking a Hawaiian vacation do we get a resolution on that with the president's plans -- ask.
What people think that is -- been scheduling and you know.
It hopes that the deal will be done by them but if it's not.
Having scheduled lift and having gotten all the dust in the early need to do to take it -- -- a press deadly vacation which is quite that preparation is because need to -- -- and not be there it will demonstrate how -- is about getting done that he doesn't show up.
Right in these things as much as these negotiations happen every year because they do that the same story happens every year where -- you know the wife and this is Obama and the two children go to Hawaii he waits and I'm sure that's can't keep that we're looking forward to again you're curious about there being more British royal family is -- -- or.
But what does this thing is that a lot of a lot of speculation that -- -- -- -- baby on the way and -- an announcement made been made in could be a change in and a I think.
It looks like it's probably -- So on the calculator has something to talk about while I'm Lisa that there -- -- -- -- -- -- did -- include -- getting -- now.
Yeah at least did not settle on a lot to talk about it -- more Prince Harry party aren't going to be debate is now -- -- -- hospital -- have a good -- Martha -- -- -- from the.
