And -- while -- -- gun control or taxes on the rich the current administration is legislating.
Based on emotion very often rather than hard evidence that the policies actually work.
Joining us now is Stan had anger from the Wall Street Journal -- -- Let's just take two issues gun control and taxes or tax increases I should say.
We have the assault weapons ban for ten years gun violence has gone down after it ended in 2004.
So there's no clear evidence there that another assault weapons ban would work.
Tax rates even the president said about a year and a half ago that.
When the economy sliding the last thing in the world you want to do is raise tax rates but that's what he's doing so.
He is we are legislating based on emotional arguments rather than any facts.
Well let's talk about gun control of president was out in Minnesota on Monday to sell his gun control bill and he said once again.
If we can say just one life we -- try.
In other words we have to try to pass an enormous national law to save one life as you suggest -- I think a lot of people forgotten David we had an assault weapons spam from 1990 -- 2004.
-- nineteen models of those weapons and reduce cartridges to ten bullets in the inside of them.
The National Research Council didn't enormous study in 2004 came the conclusion there was no way to know whether any of this at work it was just too complex but.
Barack Obama seems undeterred by the idea.
Of passing enormously is cycle -- fossil laws that are so complex -- surely it would hurt like just.
Won an election that many people many many many people thought he would lose because the facts the statistics the numbers didn't add up in his favour no president I think -- ever.
One president -- reelection.
Would numbers this bad even going back to FBR so.
He has won reelection based on emotion not based on facts and numbers so he thinks he get away with -- for other things as well.
Yeah -- but along the way he is opposing his emotions translating his emotions into laws like Obama care or Dodd-Frank.
That are so big so complex their parts -- no one's ever really talk a little more about Dodd-Frank well Dodd-Frank what he's had his signing ceremony for he said this law is going to provide quote certainty for everybody.
In the effect in the event it is provided uncertain -- everybody its iconic centerpiece the Volcker Rule does not exist yet.
The financial industry is in -- in litigation between it and the regulators the -- simply isn't.
So what this means -- -- is that lawmakers are gonna have to spend it a long time tweaking bills.
Well as we've seen with obamacare.
It was a sort of vague even though is over a thousand pages there were some things about there were -- that we're gonna have to spend years.
Using -- is trying to dictate creek it into into position saying what Dodd-Frank.
That's because an active and it did job which is reading the bills and I also what I love to hear Colin today and is what you said about the capitol building itself it's.
-- like a bubble up.
That I thought was really funny because DC to my mind does with -- bubble -- Atlanta.
Spitz a bit what David saga that too is sending -- the legislative Randy off -- we mean by that.
I mean that they.
Take these ideas and David's right just decide they have and do something -- -- throw Wallace emotion at these bills and then -- all of this stuff into it.
People living in the bubble called the capital.
And then spread it across a country of 313.
Million people living in fifteen different states.
-- a land mass of nine millions and or whether it works or when -- is driving forward does work.
It doesn't matter does -- because they just wanna pass it in their big capital bubble and I just don't understand it I think.
It's so funny because people on the left now are talking about lies that is based -- are feasible products and handcrafted -- this is the way they live their own life and other supporting a guy -- precisely the opposite ends well again the facts have a tendency to catch up with -- -- when they do who knows what's gonna happen payable on your wallet -- I already yen thank you very much in having -- well.
