Republicans -- a party like it's 1995.
-- his political terror.
-- my goodness it's a crisis.
800000 government workers suffer -- little release.
It's embarrassing reality government.
Shot down how will America survive.
-- government -- double slash resumes operation which could put the baby -- brisk it's pathetic.
It's not responsible period sequels he says the budget has already been caught into the bowl after don't have very good singer there's -- More cuts to -- The cupboard is bare.
Well it's filled with -- government -- overflow.
We'll show you what should be punished because so much of what government does is unnecessary billion dollars the government shut down.
I didn't notice anything if they don't notice it I think.
Just -- it.
That's our show.
-- Just shot it that's -- -- idea are so people tell me but.
My hope is that this current partial shut down most of the government continues to operate.
My hope is that this pause in some government spending will be a teaching moment.
More people even some politicians might realize hey we don't need all this stuff and given that America's going broke we ought to cut Soledad now permanently.
I'm probably deluding myself given what I read in the media -- here for most politicians but not from senator Mike late.
Senator you say you kick started the defund obamacare movement which led to the shut down in -- proud of it you don't.
Think this partial shutdown is a bad thing.
What I'm saying is that I think it's unfortunate that we had to get to a shut down in the first place.
We should never be in a position where we're told you have to fund all of government in order to fund any of government.
It shouldn't be an all or nothing proposition historically it hasn't been historically we've taken each segment of the federal budget each segment -- federal spending.
And we voted on that independently but for the last four and a half years.
We've been operating on the basis of continuing resolutions which -- an all or nothing funding proposition to keep our three point seven trillion dollar government running.
And what I'm saying is it makes no sense to do things that way especially at a time when we're expanding government even further by adding programs like obamacare.
Which is hurting Americans and their ability to get jobs and maintain health insurance.
Are are right but I don't really wanna talk about the procedure tonight do you think this might be a teaching moment that people might wake up and -- -- three point seven trillion.
Do we need to spend all that.
Got it it's a legitimate question when we look at the fact that we have nearly a quarter out of every dollar that -- for the American economy.
Being taken up fire federal government that's kind of a problem and it's a really big problem when you've got people working months out of each year.
Just to pay their federal taxes that is to say nothing of their state and local tax burdens that's a problem too.
When government becomes this much of a part of this many people's lives.
We have good reason to worry about that and it ought to be an opportunity force to reexamine.
The kind of government we really want.
Now he Republicans are being.
-- I think Bernie Goldberg later in this program is -- echo -- saying -- as those strategy can't get rid of the Affordable Care Act it's being passed the president says it's a law that's passed the Supreme Court ruled it constitutional.
It settled -- -- to stay.
But congress has the power of the purse right James Madison said that was the most important power we're giving -- congress and if they pass a law that they hadn't read -- Nancy Pelosi said we'll have to pass and so we can read it.
Seems reasonable that congress should later be able to say -- read it now we're not gonna -- this thing.
Yeah that's exactly right first of all John it's important to remember that there are lots of programs that are authorized.
It don't end up getting funded.
It's not uncommon for congress to pass a law and then decide not to fund it later.
It's also important to remember when the president and others say look this is the -- so we have to -- -- so we have an abundant.
That ignores the fact that the president's refusing to follow the law ignores the fact that the president has repeatedly.
Re written the law without any statutory or constitutional authority to do that.
-- -- the Supreme Court upholding the Supreme Court had to rewrite the law twice in order to make it constitutional.
All right but he may win in the end of most of the media poll is shrinking government and they search out anything it's noticeable during -- shut down and hype.
How -- -- shut down impact do you all national parks and museums even the national zoo would close the statue of liberty will have a close signed.
The -- time that happened was because of a hurricane this time it's happening because of Republican ideology.
About a month ago a baby panda was born at the national zoo a government shutdown will slash the -- operations which could put -- -- -- -- that risk.
So many in the media do oppose any effort to shrink or control the growth of government.
Fortunately there are few exceptions -- -- and I'm very happy with the fact that you're helping us have this conversation with the American people.
But the American people overall understand one thing fairly clearly which is that obamacare is putting them into a great state of uncertainty with regard to their job security.
And so I have to ask the question how many more Americans want to lose their jobs or have their hours cut or their wages slashed.
Or lose access to it health insurance.
As 20000 Home Depot employees recently did.
Before congress will step in and act to protect them from this harmful law.
All right moving on to the coming budget battle here here's one thing I think is valid criticism from someone who is usually.
They -- Right there really bold people they're gonna cut this government do you know what there's chicken hawks this is the government.
Most of it goes to defense Medicaid and Social Security these big tough guys have not put any of those items on the table.
So all you big tough guy I think he has a point this is all the talks discretionary spending.
OK look it's important that we emphasize here that in obamacare we have an enormous amount of new entitlement spending mandatory spending.
That that's about to -- again.
And so this is and another increase in other.
Turn in the one way ratchet -- expanding government it's about to kick in on January 1 that's exactly what we're trying to prevent.
Is it expanding our entitlement state that already have many are saying is unsustainable as it is even before we get to obamacare.
So at least we can do to protect the American people right now is to protect them from more expansion of more government that we can't afford it I think.
Thank you sent in early.
Now I'm told shutting down government's terrible for the economy just terrible simply.
Not paying government workers -- something off GDP President Obama said government workers are the customers of every business in this country.
And the lost sounds enormous when you listen to him in the media but economist -- Powell says the opposite is true the shutdown could be good for America.
-- first of all let's just gets its perspective here if McDonald's laid off 40% of food -- food production workers.
Closed if you drive up lanes and stopped from the toys and happy meals we wouldn't say in the normal shot down.
So the US government hasn't shut down.
When people get their paychecks today and tomorrow they're still gonna see that the IRS is stealing some of their wages I got -- on my way here to see you today by the TSA.
The NSA is probably still listening to our phone calls and somewhere in another part of the world at this very moment someone's in the United States military's cross hairs this is hardly a shot back.
That's -- it is a step in that direction and I think it's a good step in that direction especially as the public realizes.
-- their life really didn't change that much maybe we could make the shut down permanent.
President Obama said we need to do this for the person working from the Agriculture Department helping farmers make a modest profit.
No no no this is something that the government shouldn't be doing in the first place -- farmers to make a profit without the Agriculture Department farmers should be able to make a profit without the agricultural department otherwise they shouldn't be farmers.
So -- short term of course people are gonna have adjustment problems -- but the government permanently got out of this line of business.
People would adjust and they would rely on themselves and their fellow Americans are voluntary transactions not the government to get things done.
And yet let last time the government shut down both parties seem to agree it was a terrible thing.
Ever shut the federal government don't.
But of course the government doesn't like the government shut down because some of all start to realize that -- busy bodies and petty tyrants in Washington DC.
Are necessary for our daily lives if the longer that this continues to go on -- more Americans will wake up to that fact and of course that's bad for both Republicans and Democrats.
And the stock market last time did find this time there hasn't been a crash.
I don't see the big problem here -- -- the problem is that we have a big intrusive government if this marginally -- at that should be good for the economy good for the stock market along.
-- speaking of marginally shrinking.
Earlier this year the so called sequester cut 5% from discretionary spending which is just about a third of the budget.
Politicians scream that this would be terrible.
Hurting military community is hurting middle class families our children our seniors and the people who can least afford it that's what the so called sequester means.
If you're watching the show.
Can you think of one thing in your life that changed.
After the sequester.
My guess -- the vast majority of people the answer is no except the good news is that other thing you're not noticing this it's not extra debt the government was racking up that the gonna try to wring out your paychecks.
And I got excited about the lack of extra deaths.
Thought that was a wonderful thing and I thought it might significantly postpone America's coming bankruptcy but.
I was a full -- here's a video for the Peters from the Peterson foundation showing that.
When economists make projections about what our debt will look like over the next few decades we are clearly heading toward a crisis.
Surely the sequester with its across the board spending cuts changed -- picture more size a plea.
And again it seems only -- of -- a little more time.
In the big picture this sequestered barely makes any difference at all delays bankruptcy but just a little.
Yet no we need to make much bigger fundamental cuts and the politician -- played a clip of Pelosi going nuts about saying there's nothing left to cut.
No there's plenty left to cut two entirely eliminate the government deficit would mean returning to a budget in real terms.
The to both the size that -- was when Bill Clinton left office this is hardly an error small government.
And they're not talking about doing that none of them seem to want to talk about entitlements.
Not Republicans or Democrats they're both politicians who benefit from the existing system.
Neither one wants to make the type of fundamental cuts necessary to get the fiscal house in order.
And yet the polls show seventy some percent of Americans oppose this shut down.
Hit list if I could carry a tune John -- sing the song all I am saying is give shut down a chance.
So as Americans get used to the fact that this doesn't negatively impact their lives hopefully those numbers start going in the other direction and we realized that we should really start shutting down government.
Not just this little bit.
It's just hard to get people to change the way of thinking I I look at it -- Where it is totally in the tank.
And only after riots and months.
Threats to change did they do things like reduce required required every business severance pay.
To one full year you get paid after you get let go used to be two years.
-- this is the austerity that Europe has been screaming about it's it's trivial but try this have a -- we're shutting down government we actually stopped collecting taxes from people are giving them liabilities for taxes and then we'll see how popular -- shut down gets.
But that's not gonna happen whether they're good -- collect taxes for -- so thank you Ben Powell of the Independent Institute.
Coming up I hear this partial shutdown creates -- in Washington DC but let's not forget the political class has been doing.
Very well and beautiful I make extending.
Culinary LA all collapsed walls ceilings got a little bit so -- this deal at two point eight million.
Housing prices went way they'll do not in Washington.
Also will cover how private business again and again.
Does what government won't do.
-- essential government work -- you any jobs essential.
Every -- assists and -- -- essentially that they got.
For millions some workers they're all -- -- most of yeah absolutely their jobs are very important to them.
I was stunned when several people told me every government job is essential even if it's not needed.
Because it's essential to that worker.
So the government -- a partial shutdown is -- tragedy does it takes jobs away from people.
It's like they think government creates jobs out of thin they -- they don't.
Understand that the government has no money of its own so what it pays people.
Takes money and jobs away from other people the real job creators in the private sector.
People like X pro football player Tyoka Jackson.
So okay -- it's not clear to me how you were creating jobs when you were defensive end tackling people but it's possible -- it is more clear to me now that -- a business owner.
Because you employ a 150 people.
Big difference between government and the private sector again appears to be right you know in the in the private sector we we have to produce.
And it goes to our bottom line and we're dealing with our own money.
There appears to to me that.
You know we got a bunch of people here and in DC playing when you know high stakes poker with other people's money and that's that's the -- -- -- me.
And I should make it clear you run 22 I -- restaurants.
And in football you lost a couple jobs -- you didn't feel you were entitled to the job no.
And you learn from that yes it's that's what makes sports great football meticulous -- life lesson that you learned every day a lot I was cut twice.
And had an ever -- Self assessment conversation in the mirror with myself and had his exact I didn't better if I want to keep doing what I'm door.
And you know give these of these lessons that I transfer.
To the business world it's every day on -- skill development EV getting better -- -- getting worse.
And you see it every day and -- bottom line.
And you sometimes have to fire employee.
-- -- in this we tell people.
-- I've never fired anyone a far themselves the job description is what it is and I hired -- because I think he can do it.
But if you decide through your actions and lack thereof.
That you don't deserve to be -- more -- you made a decision for me.
And some of those people go on to other jobs -- there are more suited and happier -- work better this is the creative destruction that makes capitalism work did you look at that.
The private sector all the companies that announce job cuts.
Workers JPMorgan 171000.
-- 161000 -- 151000.
And so on this goes on all the time it's not a big news story but -- government.
Cuts anybody which they almost never do.
Somehow that's a crisis.
Well -- obviously you never -- wanna see people lose their livelihood but you know in the real world and a private sector were competing he would back competitors.
So we have to win.
We have to stay lean and some -- situations you know I don't I don't see that the federal government's competing against anyone so giving lean.
Is not necessarily a mandate -- -- to get what I'm saying.
And government has use it or lose it budget -- Sometimes at the end of the year if they still have something they just waste yeah yeah and I and I wouldn't say that's you -- to any party.
Right -- I've been on this earth for 41 years now and it seems like government.
It tends to be that way.
And that's a little unfortunate for the game they're playing with opera money.
So you know I look at it that way.
Now this week I and others my office tried to sign up for obamacare most of us wouldn't be eligible but we wanted to see what the experience was like.
None of us could even get through we've got an error message or the page just did not load.
President Obama responded to complaints about that with the government business comparison other than just a couple weeks ago.
Apple rolled out new mobile operating system.
Days they found the -- so they fixed it.
I don't remember anybody suggesting apple should stop selling iphones -- rapids.
But there's a difference because the iPhone the iPad they still work they have a minor glitch.
Only in government can you offer something and basically it's just not available the people.
And say it's the same thing in the private sector you just have to do better absolutely or you don't survive.
I expect this to get better but.
What a greater draw a lot of Harrison.
And they're not competing with anybody -- -- government monopoly that's right that's that's that's the huge difference I mean you know we -- competing every day.
Against other brands -- dimensional brands but I have competes every day and we have to make sure that we stay relevant to our customers these are things that government.
And it doesn't really have to worry about.
What you learned this.
Well I mean you know actually alert a lot of this stuff in that in football I mean it's it's it's a highly competitive business and its approval as the played in -- -- -- -- right.
Tom if you want to privileged to be there you've got it.
Develop your skills every single day and keep getting better come because they're looking for someone better than you if they exist.
Four or you're out that's the bottom line and that's business thank you Tyoka Jackson -- coming up.
That media and it's loved of government.
Morning to face it.
Embarrassing reality -- government shot down.
Did you notice that the government shutdown -- what you noticed.
Well I noticed it when I -- it but I didn't notice it in any of my activities today.
That's what everyone -- -- said it except for a few tourists who were unhappy because the statue of liberty was close.
And why is it clothes can't people's color look at it wasn't close last government -- I suspect this is it's more shot down theater.
The current partial shutdown isn't -- crisis about the -- most of us won't miss -- thousand furloughed employees at the National Labor Relations Board.
Good riddance now they can't forbid Boeing to build a factory in South Carolina.
I don't miss -- thousand intrusive bureaucrats at the EEOC you do things like sue hooters for not employing more man.
I'm thrilled that temporarily at least fewer government workers are able to cripple the economy.
Maybe this'll be a teaching moment little wake people up to the benefit of less government but.
It's going to be tough because the media love big government they tell us that shut down threatens our fragile economy.
And that there is nothing partisan about trashing selfish extremists who shut down our government.
Some people say the media simply hate Republicans and it's true that they have a slobbering love affair with Barack Obama.
That's the title of media critic Bernie Goldberg last book.
But Bernie I think the media have a bigger love affair with government.
Yes I think and that was a very interesting lead and by the -- nice nice writing back.
Hey here's the thing.
Liberals in general.
Like big government they have more confidence in big government than you or I do.
And liberals in the media are basically the same as liberals in general they have the same.
Now use the same priorities.
So yes you're right.
Liberals in the media do -- big government but.
As you can also add -- that media in general because it's easy to cover central planning there's one place you go to cover to cover that.
Spontaneous order of the marketplace.
Is much harder to happening everywhere.
Right and here's -- easy to cover in a shut down.
You do the predictable cliche.
Stories about how Yosemite is closed.
And how the panda cam is it has been taken offline OK we knew they were gonna do that and they didn't disappoint us.
But here's a much bigger much more important behind the scenes story.
That the mainstream media but I'm talking mostly about television.
And that is why as President Obama being so -- why is -- being so uncompromising.
And I personally think it's because he is the one who wants to shut down I think he is the one who was rooting for chaos.
He is the one who understands that it will be Republicans -- according to all the polls who'll get the lion's share of the blame and that.
This is his only way his only hope.
Of winning the house in 2014.
And then he can fulfill his campaign promise in these are his words not mine.
To fundamentally transform the United States of America.
Now those are my opinions -- maybe I'm right I don't.
Here any reporting on it that's true and I also don't hear much that's -- and kind of how congress exempted itself from obamacare.
That's my point.
That's my point senate -- do the easy story about about Yosemite and the Smithsonian being shut down and about the family that's disappointed.
This is a much more important story that goes to the to the reason we have a shut down by the way.
The shutdown is only part one the president has already indicated that he's going to be just as uncompromising.
About the much more serious.
Look at borrower still hard news reporter I'd go out and find.
Serious political thinkers who -- non partisan and say do you think the president is doing this.
For political gain is he willing to throw the American people and the American economy under the bus so he could -- the house next year I think those are legitimate questions.
Now I don't think it would be under the bus -- it will have chaos -- the shutdown continues who knows the majority may be right but what thing that's different this time is that.
-- we have alternative media last shut down we didn't have.
Fox Drudge Report -- reason bright part the blaze much more talk radio Twitter FaceBook.
And this you know if if it's terrible things don't happen and people say -- ho hum why are we spending so much on government might.
Be different this time.
That's right it might be different because.
Even though I haven't seen in the hard news coverage any.
-- or at least not much blatant bias I mean.
The the cover of the New York Daily News was absolutely -- pickle I'll that was catastrophic path disgraceful.
Listen when I was a kid growing up in New York I came from a blue collar family and my father would bring the -- daily -- -- every day.
And -- was a solid.
Blue collar tabloid.
Now it's it's an embarrassment.
And though the Washington Post headline about people federal -- entering turn to prayer.
Yeah that was that was over the top but I don't I don't find the problem really in the hard news.
Blatantly taking sides and John.
This needs to be said.
Before this became a media issue was a political issue the Republicans.
Picked a fight they couldn't win they went into battle without a battle plan.
They wanted to battle against the president of the United States no less without an end game that's not a media are.
You're not gonna solve -- here because I'm not sure they can't win this battle may be the country will change thank you Bernie Goldberg coming up.
The Washington Post is upset that the Washington area might -- 200 million dollars a day.
I say good I want to Washington they have less money they've been rallying -- -- You have a primate had ten.
Culinary LA called glass walls ceilings -- This comes -- studio at two point eight million.
The crisis continues some of Washington -- and politicians say the cupboard is bare that's why they cannot they go hey.
Know how -- this -- there there's no more cuts to me.
-- cuts to wake tonight if Washington must be broke not that you noticed if you go there and look around.
Consider where they work the architectures -- many office buildings resemble palaces.
It very much like their side before moved French revolution the whole flexibility.
They spent their lives in their -- and they didn't didn't know much about what went on outside that world that's what happens in Washington.
For -- is that a harsh comparison.
Not really sustain the -- of the Cato Institute.
You work in Washington.
News -- -- It's great getting -- all the time.
If you bought a house there a little while ago.
On that you've been able to ride it up -- the great thing hit in Washington was up prices didn't decline when there there was a recession in the rest of the country odd jobs are still Blair.
People make a lot of money.
Four of the five richest counties in America are now in the DC region.
And while the median income for America dropped about 6%.
Over the last twelve years.
It rose 23% in DC -- that is an incredible number.
Arm and you can quibble about in calm -- These discussions maybe -- didn't really decline in real terms nationwide.
But that gap there about 30%.
Greater than the rest of the country.
Show issue that it isn't just well Washington is Richard in the rest of the country.
It's getting richer every year they think you know they like talk about gaps all the time the 1% to 99%.
The achievement gap well here's a gap that's getting bigger all the time Washington in the rest of America like.
But maybe you guys are just smarter more educated in DC.
Well we'd like to think that.
But look there are in fact some brilliant scientists working in Washington.
But it's not that they are making huge salaries -- -- not making Bill Gates salaries it's just that all government salaries are pretty good.
And if you look at comparable levels of education work and everything.
Then you find on average federal salaries and benefits -- total federal package.
About twice as much as the average private sector worker.
And one of the things you should remember is that you essentially cannot get fired from the federal government.
So anybody watching this should think what kind of salary what I demand if I had a guaranteed lifetime no cut contract.
In Washington as it slows down on -- wanna say shuts down.
People are upset because in the media and Washington -- say things like.
Washington runs America well that's absolutely right there was a congressman from Georgia couple of days ago who wagged his finger at the Republicans instead.
If you love this country you wouldn't be shutting it down.
Well they're shutting down the country.
Arguably they're shutting down the federal government and of course as we all know the checks arrive today like they always do.
I took Amtrak up here or somebody or other guess so went through the TSA to get here.
Pretty much everything is working.
It's just a few little things like if you wanted to go to the Washington monument that's why they call -- -- Washington monument cut.
The one thing they close down national parks battle tick people off.
They tried to close down army navy air force football and then they backed off -- well maybe we don't have to do that so.
Most of government is still operating I.
I don't get it with the Washington monument it's still mayor what does it mean the -- -- you know you have somebody has to unlock it and somebody and they do have all inside but I think could barricades -- don't think he -- it and that's the National Park Service closed the Virginia park.
That sits on federal and even though the government provides no resource is for its maintenance or operation well that's right they are very big on things that are visible.
You know if they close the IRS building for a day all they do it's it's lock the door and it's not like people are clamoring to go there.
But for these public places parks and things then yes they have put up barriers.
So you can't get close to them and that does seem that there's.
-- Ford's theater in Washington where president Lincoln was shot.
National historical monument but it's a working theater and it's a nonprofit theater company and all the money comes from the private sector.
But they've had to close this week because the building.
Is a national park even though the theater has nothing to do with the -- And one thing you guys -- -- do is point out that it's not.
Politicians who run America it's free people everywhere in the cars are designed to Michigan and Tennessee in the computers in California and -- on and that stuff.
Stuff of life well that's right and that's what runs a mayor cut the reason we all have big screen televisions.
And fashionable clothes.
And bigger houses every year at least until the recession.
Armed and better computers and just the fact that we get a sandwich every day at lunch all of that is stunned by people in the private sector.
Working for profit working in their own interest.
And as I I guess you're talking about on the show being impeded by government not particularly being helped by government.
So the idea that in shutting down the federal government you've shut down the country is just -- I'm sure in most of the country.
They don't know there's a government shutdown.
Except the media tells them thank you David Bos coming up you heard congresswoman Nancy Pelosi say there's nothing to cut out of the budget the cupboard bare.
Well I'll go through Nancy's coverage let's see what's in there.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Cut cut more we don't need all this they're covered it is very cool.
I want some Republicans try to shut down to -- -- They're not ever stop millions of people from getting health care.
My goodness they won't even sit down and have a discussion about this.
Watching -- -- you think that the two parties were fighting about government spending Democrats wanna spend more give people more stuff.
Republicans want to cut to reduce our debt.
That's the story line but when it comes to specifics it's often a different story.
Matt Welch of reason magazine is says is true Democrats wanna spend but I am wrong if I think Republicans want to cut.
They say they want to cut.
-- within -- seeing what they're going to cut that is the thing since Republican leadership since George W.
Bush all the way through Mitt Romney.
They've been running and campaigning against.
Specific spending cuts not.
For specific spending cuts compassionate conservatism was all about.
Boosting the Department of Education creating Medicare part.
He admitted -- maybe even an off the record fund raiser he's still -- I can't tell you -- he he'd just firmly believes like Karl Rove.
But Republican establishment for a long time now that if you mentioned what you're going to -- -- you will lose the election that's why Mitt Romney thought he lost his first election.
To Teddy Kennedy and so they're terrified Karl Rove this January after the fiscal -- -- said.
Up to -- sequestration that deal he said Republicans should only back.
Cuts that Barack Obama has already previously backed himself that way we could say.
It's Barack Obama's fault that is where the Republican leadership has been -- for fourteen years.
Because well a lot of people benefit from cuts none of them really care about an individual cut but the person who gets -- will fight you to the death.
Yes which is a specific problem but also I think Republicans have lost.
-- feeling that the the kind of -- moral argument for making people -- making all of us more prosperous by getting the government off our backs and by spending less money in Washington that was a project that.
Democrats and Republicans were part of the 1970s and Republicans and 1980s but now they feel like -- they argue that they'll lose election -- don't really believe anymore.
John Boehner did give telling answer when he was asked about kotsay he became speaker of the house -- the Tea Party one of the deficit reduced and voted in Republicans.
Brian Williams then.
Ask him this.
Do you consider the defense budget.
Sacred do you consider this will probably not do you consider the Homeland Security budget is -- Why goes but probably that's the name of the program right now that we could do without.
I don't look I don't want -- the top of my.
That's the speaker of the house you think I would think he would have been off the top of his head that look there was a couple of years ago we've now elected -- Tea Party class isn't the new group.
More hard core I think sell some of.
New group has more hardcourt still what we're arguing for right now -- between.
Is 3.5 trillion and three point seven trillion those -- the two budget proposals from the house by the Republicans the senate by the Democrats it's very very small on the house Republican thing has nothing about going -- -- harm education or commerce or anything like that he had a minority of Tea Party Republicans who talk about this and win elections and campaign on it which is important but it is still a minority and as I think we've seen this week they're not.
Really a negotiating particularly well.
And -- that when you get to the specifics as you point out to pay it's not so good 77 house Republicans voted against killing that.
Essential air service program this subsidy to tiny airports mostly used by wealthy people.
Peter King Steve -- Christie no -- around these people who are on this network often and say their fiscal conservatives voted.
To continue it sure.
Match in this America led the world and airline deregulation in the 1970s.
And led by eight.
Democrats like Teddy Kennedy now Europe is way ahead of us an airline deregulation precisely because Republicans like that.
There was an amendment that would have phased -- sugar subsidies they are awful -- -- so many people help a couple rich sugar growers.
Sixteen senate Republicans including Marco Rubio vote against of course if Republicans really wanted to make a moral arguments against welfare.
Against the state giving money to people and to distort the market the first thing that they would target would be agricultural subsidies subsidies from you and I.
To Archer Daniels Midland.
They won't instead they'll talk about food stamps instead so they don't like welfare when it goes -- poor people they.
