With 46 days into the new year we've seen taxes go straight up and -- another tax hike proposal today in his columnist John fund it from them yeah.
My job is what I say.
That the second time of the administration is characterized by tax the rich spend some -- money and ignore the debt.
Now following -- from the truth.
Well I think that was we.
Policy of -- first term now they're just being explicit about it and honest about it because the president never have to face the voters again can you gonna get he's gonna get another tax -- on the rich -- -- -- get all these spending plans that we well you know we were very weak economy right now and there's one thing every school of economic -- from -- humanism.
To monitors and to vegetarianism.
Says that is you don't raise taxes and a weak economy.
But it does -- and -- counties that is that high profile for most of well that's what's fascinating about this president.
I think this is the first president in my memory.
Who's disconnected from policy and is all politics.
He wants to crush the Republican opposition wants to reshape government.
He wants to be the next liberal LBJ -- FDR and the economy well -- sort of -- out.
Now the latest Democrat proposal is.
A big tax increase on people making more than one million dollars in yeah I misspoke audacity this two million is not is -- one million dollars that wanna take at least a -- of your income.
By the fence along.
He's gonna get it.
He -- he couldn't get passed through congress will only do this.
Isn't just political strategy I don't think the president believes you'll get much of this for congress I think he wants to use this as a club.
To win back the House of Representatives and 2014.
And then he'll have a very impressive agenda to try to push through including perhaps a value added tax that is what is happening all of this the skirmishing.
We're already in campaign with between fourteen election.
You think that's gonna hear more and more and more taxes medal for more more proposals for taxes if the president can't get them unless the Democrats retake the -- -- point we're okay tell me about Ben -- Made a huge splash on this program is -- the new face of American conservatism.
I think he's the new face of American common sense.
Been Carson's message is not partisan.
He says I'm a member of no party if I were a member of a party would be the logic part.
Common sense solutions to clearly define problems.
And I think -- with his background a very distinguished physician and surgeon.
Someone who is helped thousands of people product -- private scholarship funds.
I think he has the moral authority in the standing to speak for.
Much more than just conservative not a the last of Ben Carlson I mean this man's on a roll he's riding he's retiring from active surgery in June and he says that opens up a whole lot of possibilities in the my piece on national review I speculate.
Some of those may involve.
Politics and punditry with so what in politics what position pretty -- for well.
I don't think he's interest -- in this but the governor Merrill was term limited he could run for that in 24 team.
But I think he recognizes that in the modern America you can have an enormous impact without necessarily -- -- office and I think his personality.
May be more suited towards.
A national symbol of common -- When he also set to in his -- -- -- he's a doctor doctors healed and he was essentially think people in congress have lawyers lawyers like to fight.
But what you're trying to do win if you raise a million need to win -- -- problems not just win over.
You know partisan bickering and I think that kind of reproach because 99% of Americans are not lawyers.
That appeals to that it -- he also talked about he made a great case for the flat tax.
Right in his speech when he said he basically tightening its support 110 of your income is if it's good enough for the Bible in the lord.
It's good should be good enough for us interesting stuff hi John thanks so much in the John fund and don't be such a strange to Vaughn and company and you call -- filled paths to deal.
Thank you jump back to --
