-- residents it wasn't an easy -- they're getting this that they pay taxes through the nose but had no represented in congress today.
They're getting a residential license plate to make the point.
This points on this -- president ordered all White House vehicles he used the no taxation without representation.
Tea Party -- -- -- says this president has been all taxation.
Would -- represented patient -- and that's actually very good point but.
-- -- to do more of a license plate to make a statement on.
I think what's going on here.
Is is being a very loud statement that we're gonna get a lot more to -- sites and whether misrepresentation border not.
Yeah absolutely any I have to say that I'm so glad to see politicians embrace the cause that's.
Bigger than all of the issues that we're facing today which is of course themselves because that's what this is all about the District of Columbia was never meant to be kind of the metropolis that it is today mean the founders were really clear and their intent for this district they didn't want it to be under the jurisdiction of another government state government or county or anything of that manner so it was supposed to be sovereign and that kind of way.
And now because of government excess here we have representatives in DC whose job it seems to be -- to increase the size and scope of government.
And they want more representation for themselves that the little.
On the audience it's -- a lot political crowd as well heavy heavy democratic I think.
Mike yeah pockets got 90% of their vote -- -- -- -- but leaving that aside.
There are many like yourself who argue.
There's not a flip side to all this push for taxation.
Or four measures -- measures -- light that are so grossly disproportionately.
Heavy on taxes than ever -- spending cuts but we do have that.
Well yeah I mean that's that's the whole battle that we're facing right now with the debt ceiling and everything else simulate the last fiscal cliff battle what was at a dollar and spending cuts for every four dollars and increase revenue.
Whatever that magical phrase drives toward petition Friday according to wait out.
It's -- forty excuse me forty dollars an increase revenue exactly mean where's the where's our representation.
And we can see the legacy -- is Dana candidate.
You know even in the 82 of them came to the that the new house in the in the take over 2010.
A very elected John Boehner speaker of the house and he returns the favor by a book letting them blow almost of the witness protection program.
So whereas then you're.
Dust whereas there is.
That's what happen.
I think -- still kind of building their numbers so to speak there's not a lot of people and and the house that have been adding quietly organizing to try to get to get a voice opposite John Boehner I'm not a huge John Boehner fan.
But at the same time I think if you're going to a stage -- -- you need to have someone in the wings that's going to challenge who.
And look at the end -- -- -- -- about that it would that be because I don't know that I considered my lesson to speak out there were fueled that's a question.
You know I'm wondering and how did they get there -- -- -- back or is it too late because they've already sent a warning to Boehner and in the senator Mitch McConnell look.
We excepted grudgingly what you guys had to do our taxes don't don't even tried again.
What happens if if we have another deal of debt ceiling deal are something that that is of -- same milk.
I I I'm.
And sensing both side I I can see both sides of the argument -- that I understand wanting to storm the castle that you need to get your foot in the door first at the same time.
I also think that people like John Boehner realize that there are dancing on edge of the cliff Pearson to speak and -- -- they're in trouble of losing their entire base which is ultimately the entire goal of this administration and when a divorce the grassroots -- From the Republican Party they're looking two years ahead at mid terms and it seems that we're still looking at some of these tactical issues and not the overall strategy.
But a lot of this -- goes back to the state level as well who are voters going to be electing to represent -- in two years power voters putting their feet that holding.
These elected officials' feet to the fire in their own states we need to see a lot more of that and ultimately I think that's the -- away.
To get some real change in the house and that's really the way that we're going to be able to enforce these grassroots values.
Well yours ought to be overcome a mainstream media that has a cast does not some crazies and and say they Occupy Wall Street movement have a normal guys so the world is upside down.
I understand that but it's time to take the offensive because what's going on here is pretty offensive.
Absolutely -- I would like to add to -- all of these every time we see the administration.
Whether it be Jay Carney or President Obama are VP Biden get up and front of the camera give a press conference answer some questions.
About any fiscal issues -- -- this particular issue it should always be matched every single day with either Boehner or some other congressional Republican doing the exact same thing they need to start fighting fire with fire very good point.
School fair and balanced.
Do -- -- thank you could see you again.
