-- to go no deal as of now fiscal -- -- now restrain your emotions please Kelly James Collins from the weekly standard is.
All right Kelly.
All of you -- that.
-- I agree that that seems to be the conventional was them I'm not sure that that should be though.
You know -- people forget that it's not as if we didn't see this coming -- nobody's blaming the deficit reduction super committee.
And the fact is -- -- failure to have a bipartisan agreement is really what its regular -- -- fiscal.
-- the fate of President Obama to lead.
I think he's the president United States of America we are facing a fiscal crisis -- and an economic crisis for heaven's sake.
-- should we expect the president to go a long way towards dealing with this and leading -- -- -- -- I don't see it frankly.
I don't either I think that his -- honestly I think is he just won an election.
So he calls the shots and the Republicans should just follow along even though.
-- -- there -- majority in the house and there's a great deal of the country.
That does not support the way that a -- I would like to deal with this prop.
Look at look at how it's been presented in the in the conventional establishment media -- discuss a couple of headlines like picked up on of the last few days.
President Obama cutting short his holiday vacation returning to Washington trying to fix the fiscal -- -- thank you very much Mr.
Mister Boehner house speaker Boehner all he finally.
Gets the house back in session on Sunday night.
And then we have worked as some Democrats saying one of -- Republicans quit defending that million that pals.
The way it's being presented in the establishment media is highly pejorative against Republicans and yet.
Republicans as we heard from the Rasmussen poll.
And not getting all of the blame is 4436.
That's what it is again that surprises me.
-- headlines -- grain of the next time I'm on deadline and I have a story right.
And -- because I've laughed at the last minute and I have to cancel a movie I think I'm going to you know complain about an insane.
-- finally I'm getting back into the work session here.
Now I mean it's ridiculous and other Republicans I think are doing one thing wrong -- and that is focusing so much on the tax increases on higher earners.
I do think that that is one area where Obama can claim to have a bit of an upper hand because he -- it very clear.
In his campaign for re election that he was going to tax the wealthy so called wealthy more so I think he has a good argument that he might have a mandate there.
But everything else I mean eight as you just mentioned if there's going to be deal's gonna be a narrow one and pretty much everything and that -- deal is going to be in the democrats' favor is going to be things they want.
That's all it is I mean -- the way things are shaping -- from what we are hearing.
It's simply a deal that discussing a deal which would raise taxes on people making more than a million of 500000 all the latest number.
400000 -- it's I don't know anything office include of Sargodha.
Exactly and you know -- -- calling this the fiscal -- But really -- if there is a deal it's not going to avert a much bigger one later because any deal that that we're talking about here is not going to include.
It's gonna -- not thing.
On getting spending under control it's going to have some -- -- -- -- it may -- elevator that it but it's not going to address the big issues so.
Any last minute deal is really just gonna.
Kicked the can down around and these issues are still gonna be an armor still gonna have the same intransigence on the Democrats on and on getting dealing with spending which just presented -- -- something has -- -- out.
It used to get this fiscal cliff stuff forget the debt ceiling stuff fact is that tomorrow morning.
The tax rate the Social Security tax rate on every American who walks is going up.
The met a -- tax rate on high income people is going up.
The tax on medical devices tomorrow morning is going up forget fiscal cliff taxes are going up almost across the -- get a quick comment on that.
Well I -- -- -- I this is gotta be the first time ever that it's December 31 and I have no idea what I'm gonna be making tomorrow in terms of take home pay.
And -- -- fear if your business -- how do you decide what you're going to.
Do with your business this year because you don't know how much you're gonna be paying taxes if your consumer.
How to write how do you decide what you're gonna be spending your money on in the upcoming year there -- -- level of uncertainty I think is unprecedented.
And the fact that it's gone on this long is isn't happening is that since they consent saying it's really crazy how.
Rages that's what it is a Kelly to just -- -- for a second as an undesirable to business and I wanna bring you back from the -- Say it isn't so.
Piers Morgan threatens to leave the united states of a gun control.
Online have offered to pay for his ticket -- college class of -- And I we'll even throw in a stopover in tax happy France is how is -- put -- threat to leave quote.
I can spat those Americans who want me deported a lot of effort by saying this if you don't change -- gone lol -- to at least try to stop these relentless tidal waves of -- -- Then you don't have to -- about deporting me.
I don't have my take on piers Morgan in -- next hour or so now clearly I've got a dog in this hunt I am English I am an immigrant etc.
I've got a strong opinion.
On piers Morgan so let's bring back Kelly -- What do you think -- it is my idea -- Is anybody.
Is anybody going to isn't even crying over this is anybody worried piers Morgan's gonna leave.

Things to laugh at the day after.
