As so what is -- speaker to do with -- -- ask a former speaker knows.
-- and Republicans are generally up against former house speaker Denny pastor joining me right now speaker always good to have you what would you do what would you do.
Well -- first -- you look at the situation there's.
-- -- escalating the punishment on the productive Americans and dot.
-- -- you can't do that forever and I think Boehner and companies certainly have to draw the line there.
I think the president has taken some positive steps but entitlements do need to be -- change in and -- -- and modified.
But there are other ways that they get capital -- -- to raise the revenues.
And it doesn't have to be on the backs of people who work and one of the things he's trying to do and put the -- -- not 30%.
-- people over a million dollars morsels are small businesspeople here taken away all the deductions that small businesses.
That that's that's expenses that's -- the pick up trucks in the computers.
But that's really detrimental to -- our growth.
But let's see what he's also saying is that he knows the -- -- savvy enough.
That even at a top rate of 39 point 6%.
With deductions and -- also in the light.
They could cut those obligations and half when he.
When he is talking about a minimum rate of 30%.
But the million and over club he is essentially saying.
I'm I'm I'm not on limiting what you can write off but I'm even find that if you do.
You will always have to fall back of that as a minimum that is a game changer is -- not much is the ANC was that eventually sucked in a lot more folks -- Well absolutely it it really puts a real penalty.
-- people it does take the risk didn't end -- go audit and are the entrepreneurs and -- make jobs in this country.
And so that's.
Leo examine data so what do you do I mean another woods if he is gonna go this route.
To say by and large -- closing loopholes credits and allowances something by the way that a lot of Republicans including speaker Boehner were open do I guess.
That was -- -- the rate Cox.
But it would is that off the table now for Republicans because they already greeted a -- nights and they're not gonna give anymore they office.
Well look -- if I'm not gonna speak for for.
She speaker Boehner he's got to do his own thing but I think that is really what my -- -- you know I think there's I think there's flat ways to fine.
Other revenue to bring -- And some people are trying to hold revenue increases.
Stranded -- capital overseas.
As the engine to drive were to bring tax reform but I think you're gonna get decent tax reform of this -- is not gonna happen.
So you gotta look at some of those other alternatives I think.
Now the Republicans feel a little -- as speaker you and our -- has more right after the -- sequestration nightmare that.
They actually got the better -- the president that he was trying to fear monger the American Bebo.
That there would be held of a disaster we'd -- -- eating horse -- in the rest.
These inspectors will be fired secrets racing came and went and nothing's been tell the president warning today well.
It could still impact us and if you could still be bad but by and large it wasn't.
So did the American people not so much Republicans call the president's.
-- -- -- -- -- -- They establish -- it if you go back home and you hear -- got more bills -- -- -- time you got at the -- -- that people understand that.
And that's exactly what the federal government's done and I think most people say well why don't we cut more but I.
The president doesn't think there is a problem and I don't think he's taking that I think he genuinely feels that spending isn't a problem when I hear from a lot of prominent Democrats senate say you know.
We don't have a spending problem here they honestly feel that way so how do you argue.
People who I'm not taking sides here you don't think there's a problem -- you just don't get it.
-- -- the president has said he doesn't think there's a spending problem.
You know what you start to look that the trillions and trillions of dollars -- -- deficit there's a spending problem so that's where that's what congress is about.
Yeah that's why there's two.
Divisions of government so somebody can draw the line is that you know this is were -- and what are the problems that that I think the house has to deal -- Is all the deal razor -- are going on in the senate and the senate even cuts and dries it did -- that's the deal.
And the senate -- and how's it comes back the house they got to start to create some of their own ideas and and lay them out and and start passing legislation.
Now they've yet to do them around.
So it's good -- speaker thank you very much my pleasure thank you.
