So it has been a little over a month since freshman congressman mark -- -- of Oklahoma was sworn in.
And at that time he told us that DC -- a lot like Disneyland at those in Washington need to work across the aisle to make things happen.
-- progress been made let's head to Washington for -- pressure in perspective from Republican congressman mark Wayne Moline.
What do you think has any has your impression changed at all.
Hello bit -- -- intent of the big differences Disney World actually pays the bills here in DC is literally the busiest -- bam my lack that gets nothing done.
Obviously being productive in sovereign my own business now for fifteen years and -- the day you'd like to see accomplishment.
This down doesn't that doesn't exist it's just a lot of bickering and point fingers.
So is there anything you can do about -- -- -- yell at these guys Intel on this is no way to do this this.
No you don't you know I think you're really comes down to educating.
There are we here first cells are we here for the generation behind us and my opinion is owner is on here is because of my kids I wanna leave a better place and then what I had handed to me.
And if we keep -- with each other what we're gonna news -- run -- run this country we're gonna hammer hand our kids something.
That's that's less than valuable.
You know whether the generations ahead us handed us something on a gold platter and said you know here it is only thing you gotta do is make sure you take care but -- you how this.
This conversation on a daily basis with other people -- it do you say this past year fellow congressmen and women.
Absolutely and in the good one of these days.
So what freshman Democrats and -- -- problem -- all agree there's been a big change over the last two years of who's walking in these halls and -- walk on the floor.
And at what it is as we've got to get -- -- attention mineralized that we we've dug in deep enough both parties have dug in deep enough we pointed fingers long enough.
It's time to come up real solutions not worry about party politics than about country politics first.
So if you have other freshmen they're kind of agree with you is there a chance that you can get enough people to get it together to make a difference are.
Or what's gonna happen.
Melissa I'm I'm a very optimistic guy -- my glass is always half full and I didn't -- appeared to stop idol on.
And -- -- one and hold down a seat and so absolutely there's a lot of people that fill the same way that I do and I and this isn't just Republican thing or Democrat thing either -- look we've had.
We've had our our our party leaders on both sides really dig -- -- and -- it's going to be up to the members to get this country back on track and probably we will.
It's gonna take time now I think that's one thing -- federalized had to take it very deep.
Breasts which my wife says is very hard for -- to -- And in realize I'm not fight and that this is a fight that were fighting.
Or -- is so let's take the sequestration for example 'cause that sort of -- the top of everyone's list of hurdles where you know both sides can't seem to come together and agree to something.
Are you very frustrated on that front are you getting any closer.
When you think's gonna happen with that particular.
Well first all this is government that is -- -- you got the president up there this blame them for Republican Party and what's funny -- this is the president -- begin with.
But the way government plays instead of looking -- good programs and bad programs they wanna be politically correct which is politically correctness is killing this country.
And they want to wave a magic wanna say all programs are treated the same why don't we take a business approach in this like I do and our company's look at things that are working.
And get rid -- and an -- home and get rid of the things are working there's a lot of programs in our government that makes no sense a lot of programs.
Better give -- programs that are our own senator from the great set of Oklahoma pointed out to senator Coburn.
And -- the senate would even take it out and instead -- is gonna cut across the board and we're gonna hurt things that really mean a lot of people are actually GN I.
Something you can do about that in the short term I mean can you get a group of people get out of -- go to get a calculator go through figure out what's not working archetype and -- apps -- -- everything you're saying but actually acting on that -- -- outside.
Looks impossible I hope from the inside it's different.
-- I wish I could give you a big speech here and say yes but unfortunately I don't think it's gonna happen in the near future.
I think we're gonna see possibly as these cuts are gonna happen.
And then it's gonna get ever buys attention both sides they -- Republicans Democrats alike.
We're gonna realize that we got to fix some things here and and then hopefully a few months down the -- -- -- start seeing some real progress.
OK congressman Miller thanks for checking -- -- come back and give us another report -- soon.
