For those -- listen to this tournament and it's got to know you -- do you first what do you that.
How woods is quite obvious I agree with Boehner and that's kind of rare for me to say in all -- But he's right isn't very moderate cuts and all the Obama is doing is trying to do a PR stunt to once again try to divide Republicans.
Encourage those moderate senators the -- long look at his -- when in reality.
All it's going to do is raise more taxes after we just saw hundred billion dollars -- the taxes.
Raised and not given -- cuts in it to -- entitlements that we need to happen in this country.
Well Peter I look at it and I agree at all -- that's -- a lot which is that there are more -- -- scenario could have gone further on on the -- -- It's the fact of the matter is he moved on something that that so -- -- the left.
That there they're saying this is all but killing granny and this is a significant.
Slap in the face so -- tests.
I'm just surprised Republicans.
You know at least saying -- -- we we've got the start of something.
-- -- the things that's interesting about this debate is that if you look at Obama's entitlement reforms here the administration is really pushing a get it there stepping out with a big bold new compromise.
But we've seen all of these entitlement reforms proposed before.
I think a lot of what's in the budget is it good it's small start but it's a really small start there's some Medicare we have to start somewhere right here you have to -- See more -- things before and so.
You know if if you liked Obama's -- previously you'll like it this time and I think that's a lot of what we're seeing from Boehner is they never elect Obama's budget before they still down.
Yeah out that it could be sisters that a -- what I'm seeing here is that every time.
Someone on the left or right.
Dinners with trying to address.
Let's say a third rail issue.
Bid Medicare for Paul Ryan.
Even in the slightest -- security with this president.
They hear on the other side and -- and I think did it forces.
People who are gonna.
Risk hitting that there -- morale to avoid doing it in the future.
Well that's why I think to discount what the president's -- is being insignificant smaller -- policy really under sells what's going on here the reason the left is upset.
Is because you have.
Cutting Social Security benefits when most on the left.
Think that Social Security benefits ought to be enhanced for low income -- -- dismiss this as trivial completely.
-- home depth to our political reality and economic reality for seniors this is a huge thing.
And that this can forceful succumb to the table to discuss is really an outrage opera folks who purport to be about.
Deficit reduction in our country's long term fiscal health.
Yes -- I know and understand quite clearly what you're saying I mean.
Republicans feel they already gave at the store on these tax sites -- -- I gotta go again I think -- the president's talking about his.
Closing loopholes -- breaks allowances something -- Mitt Romney supported Paul Ryan had supported I think you could quite correctly are here is that did you did it.
That that was before all these rates went up so they've given.
But we have to get something done right -- -- the president moving on an entitlement.
Seven that direction and is it -- worth more than just saying none and I don't know.
Well normally I'd be excited that the liberal -- the liberal media is very angry at the president.
But let's face -- the real reason rather angry -- -- he actually said the word cuts.
Doesn't -- -- time by getting a haircut or cutting entitlements he actually said the word cut and well.
It's gotta be it Republicans -- -- there -- pissed -- and annoyed right.
They're then that's -- reason enough for me to say.
-- -- question why should we trust President Obama let's look at what just happened just last week.
Blaming the Republicans.
For not treating cancer patients because the reply no I.
You -- headed toward the president I know.
Did Democrats have dividends -- the Republicans.
Well chronicle -- on both sides but we have to do something I did.
I you're completely right you want I wish of the president what actually watch your show market than you would realize we need to raise a little VW knowing that I'm here watching -- mister -- -- On the Atlantic where is this all gonna -- Well I think the Republicans do have a problem which is that they don't know what they really stand for except that they don't like President Obama.
That is an issue on the other hand I don't think that president Obama's proposals go nearly far enough.
And so I think it for now we have edited and you have to.
Crawl before you can walk -- walk -- could run right.
It be nice to see Republicans lay out what they would really like to do with Social Security if you remember Paul Ryan's -- were basically didn't do -- -- are literally right -- grip on what I hope.
That's a bit like this -- it is.
More Republicans entertaining.
Defense cuts are always -- -- -- the defense.
Support their own sacred cows on the table each side and lot more than each side is on up to now.
That's a -- you that I don't see that being.
I -- done either I mean the review the Medicare stuff Republicans have done a little bit more on -- on Social Security.
They basically run -- Kristen do you think that that stagnate this whole process.
Well it really does and it really calls into question what is this whole process designed to do.
If you if you aren't any true negotiation -- you give something that you're not interested in giving and that does not compel the other side.
To at least have a conversation with you you've really got a question fundamentally.
What are the goals and objectives here and I think that's where.
I'm starting to to question.
The good good faith coming from speaker Boehner really what is it that you're intending if you will not at least have conversations based on.
What is a huge concession to well what many people in Obama's party believe ought to be right policy.
Here's the problem -- moderate confession that's -- -- -- you're actually right Limbaugh I don't really had a lot of pure they're right over what you're saying we -- -- -- You have to study Social Security benefits is not modest Vermont and I'm crazy and attacked his own people that have already had the taxes cut have already -- their taxes -- -- issue.
Take currently -- -- -- -- your fingers down or not.
No -- cutting editing of news -- this new inflation formula would retake the growth of the -- you're getting but having said that I think you're all right enough to say.
You know trust but verify but we I don't see enough.
Trust but let's move to the next step that's -- worries me but we'll say.
We'll see -- this is compromise he would've predicted Boehner saying you know it's kind ala cart take your pick he didn't he did this or -- And that's how they and that's our president to better weather -- we know there aren't -- To put -- bargain is about pretty insane this -- not -- well you that it's not ala -- you can't pick and choose how you get the land or not.
Well of course he would and that's that's absurd why why in the world would do that but I mean -- -- there -- -- might take the salad out.
And I had the potatoes is that the same I -- today.
Yeah thank you very very much -- me.
