I'm town next guest that sits on the house agriculture committee congressman Michael Conway and Republican from Texas -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- A way to reassure our view is that meat inspections will not -- the moment that these spending cuts go into effect you're on the agricultural committee tell us sub.
Well that that was I think obviously the implication I think the the neck out Department of Agriculture when they put their release that ten days ago or let that -- that they were gonna do that.
An implication was who was gonna suddenly stop.
I don't think that's the case if you're responsible manager and I hope for -- -- Vilsack is he'll roll those furloughs through the system between now 1 march 1 -- September 30.
There's no reason 81 -- should be shut down now there will be perhaps less meat inspected.
The implication wasn't gonna stop all meat inspection run off of that was say -- scare tactic to.
Unworthy of his administration but nevertheless this -- they've been doing up throughout this process -- -- but a good manager will won't keep that up process going.
They get a reduced rate but nevertheless it will continue to astonishment -- that.
-- -- surely is that the president has the power to shift these -- around within departments within buckets of spending.
-- that this infliction of pain is really quite deliberate that's the way it looks to us.
Was what looks to be as well that will go to Martech we have a gonna do this but these series of scare tactics saying -- -- -- -- I do various things of TSA -- really be an all those kind of things that's up.
Is -- responsible.
If -- manager you pick up from -- do the most of the most important -- be doing.
And you'll get those done and the other things are less importantly the watch where the where the cuts taken but again this president -- leadership.
-- to prevent this into let this happen -- -- -- that's where we are.
And they've got said the secretary Vilsack and assistant says -- British response that I believe.
To execute these things in the least painful way possible still getting the savings that are going to be occurred reach the required out of -- culture but.
Do those in a way that responsible and and not.
Was -- infect inflict the most -- -- to the economy or to individual taxpayers the president.
Last night's appeared to retreat from the Armageddon threats of course you're exactly what he said he said.
A lot of people may not know -- the spending cuts at least for a week two weeks three weeks four weeks a lot of people may not notice.
I'm saying that that is a retreat.
From the Armageddon threats that the president is softening his stand may be his bluff is -- -- putting -- While they -- what has been called EC is gonna happen tomorrow and analyst we have a second coming of Christ the sun will come up on Saturday as well.
So what there will be affected will be impacts there will be people who get hurt over this seven mother night the settlement period.
Between march 1 ended September they'll be -- setting time frank furloughs will happen in there will be individual.
Who were affected but.
It won't be dramatic tomorrow things will go forward there's an -- have been it's 87 relatively small cut I guess the total left has -- that the government.
And -- -- the economy itself soon as you know we've got -- some fourteen trillion dollar economy this is 85 billion dollars.
It's meaningful if you're on the receiving if you are expected deal receiving -- that 85 billion.
It ripples because of certain things that they have a value added to -- like meat inspection yep open this -- the of the world.
Will will you congressman Michael -- Republican from Texas will you accept.
More tax increases whether they come in the form of tax rate increases.
-- ending a certain loopholes and deductions anyway you slice it will you accept.
A tax increase another tax increase.
-- and companies that defense review colleagues in the house is that it.
Yes now that's as much bigger -- is speaking for all of us that regard I believe.
Now under the umbrella of tax reform that Dave -- only two Ways and Means Committee we lower the rates and you'll have some of those things going on.
The end there will be looking at that but a a decade standalone.
Tax increases president's proposing is -- arrival with respect enough Republican.
I think what a lot of people want -- tax reform that would be lower rates and some loophole closings in return for long to entitlement reform.
That would be a grand bargain which I think you would get behind and I think a lot of people get behind -- Absolutely yes no absolutely but in this context of the sequester.
-- -- offices sequester we are not interest in the least in raising tax revenues that right now.
Growing the economy and and having more revenues come into the economy -- these -- the more taxpayers those kind of things yes would be -- for that but -- advocate tax increase -- the president is proposing is not gonna happen.
Congressman many thanks for joining us today -- things happening and then thanks to take you valuable song -- -- isn't what you.
There -- great great thank -- next.
