Or it's -- the big news would be unveiling.
-- Paul Ryan's plan for 2014 he says it will balance the budget in ten years there definitely things and it that some are going to find very hard to swallow.
Like eliminating obamacare altogether.
Please -- this picture released by senator Mitch McConnell -- office when you see this.
We are doing to reform health care I don't know.
What do you think that's all the red tape there on the left that's gonna take and regulation to deal with just that little bit of legislation on the right.
So Democrats are set to release their budget proposal tomorrow here to break down the budget battle and how soon a deal will be made his Republican congressman from -- Todd route he -- he is a member of the House Budget Committee.
Congressman thanks so much for joining us what did you like about the house -- what are the strengths.
By the member of the Budget Committee.
-- -- -- what we've been doing the last three years -- -- -- under the leadership Paul Ryan know we've had the courage.
To be straightforward and honest about what's causing the deficits and that in this country.
And that is our spending and specifically are spending on what's been called social entitlement programs.
And we're honest about reforming those strengthening I'm making -- there around for my kids were five and three right now.
In and I bankrupting the country and it.
You're trying to eliminate obamacare which you may not like but is the law of the land -- it is that a non starter to put out a budget like -- Well are -- but our our whole budget doesn't.
Hinge on whether or not Obama -- exists -- not mean it's a comprehensive budget that balances in ten years.
And doesn't increase anyone's taxes that's going to be to the two important points that the Democrats I don't think -- going to be able to say I don't think their budgets ever -- balance.
When they've ever done one it hasn't.
And and from what we're hearing on your station and other stations.
They're gonna raise taxes to the hill to try -- do it.
So that's not really a solution what -- -- does have now spent ten years if you don't get rid of obamacare.
Well it'll take longer to balance but even that you know that the point is is that we're honest about the spending that needs to be cut and actually the programs -- needed to reform.
Obama -- goes the other way and yes -- right -- it is the law but that doesn't mean you give up on your principles that doesn't mean you give up on the fight.
To try to correct.
The danger that this law.
On the future generations of this country Melissa Hart yeah.
Plan calls for -- -- is -- for tax reform on it is at June bracket code.
The lower bound bracket is 10% the language -- a little bit fuzzier around the top individual rate that is something like 25%.
How reasonable do you think it is that something like this would happen in what would be the end result.
Yeah well I think is very reasonable and I think we have hopefully some bipartisan.
Camaraderie around this and -- and earnest around us because of the fact that.
You know what its revenue neutral.
All right we're not asking to take less money for people -- more money were to simply asking to simplify the code.
-- most of us can even.
-- fill out a tax return now with help for having professional help for at least Turbotax to get us through it and it doesn't have to be that way it shouldn't have to be that way.
If we just do their revenue neutral -- -- that just taking no more than nineteen or so percent of GDP more than enough to run any government especially this federal government.
We -- were hoping to get some bipartisan support around that.
Talk about you know what draconian cuts this -- this budget represents.
And -- time all we're really talking about is slowing the growth in spending it's not even real cuts it's just spending yeah.
More let's quickly I've I've.
Think over the ten year window we're just slowing growth from around 6% down to three of those are those -- numbers.
But we have rewrite or slowing the growth in the ten year window but the -- it again most of the drivers of our debt our our our Medicare Medicaid.
Social entitlement program that's taking up two thirds of our -- And we actually get to reforming those as well albeit outside the ten year budget but we have that conversation we get the job.
How likely over an area that Democrats will join you on that front I mean Debbie Wasserman Schultz was on another liberal network earlier this morning saying that.
She supports changes to Medicare Medicaid Social Security do believe -- I think that's incredible movement -- you know whether a believer that's another question but.
Before I mean when we rolled up his budget we will commercials immediately ran showing.
Guys like me and Paul Ryan rolling older people in wheelchairs off cliffs so we've made tremendous movement -- -- in this respect already -- looking forward.
That getting the job done what there.
All right congressman we'll see what happens that's coming on.
You bet most of the next time -- --
