Thank you very much.
All right back to Tom DeLay is still would shock over the prospect of president -- That is I have it is remote device -- connecting us fell out on Tom everything exploded here and -- that Sudan -- now about.
Both sides getting serious on these serious issues we talked to democratic -- -- blue dog who's open to extending all the tax cuts first it's of that.
And how doable that is even -- lame duck -- Throughout the first of all she's gonna have to demand from our leadership that she gets that vote.
What I understand now they're gonna use a procedure that requires two thirds of the vote to pass -- bill.
That and which means to me that they they will lose the vote.
On just kind allowing the tax cuts for 98% of the people.
And and that the vote that would extend the tax cuts for another couple years -- actually passed and I think it's the most cynical.
Outrageous irresponsible thing I can hear.
They just don't throw up a bill out there that requires two thirds vote.
Because they're gonna lose -- the meaningful vote.
-- well you know that's -- Republicans you know are chatting.
You don't want to risk saying things so specific that they're gonna debut and -- the media can have a field day with.
In the weeks before the election.
But do you think that that these vague promises notwithstanding you don't think they're right I've looked at the -- -- -- -- but but nevertheless that when they get -- power.
They're going to it's -- really do something gutsy and address these entitlements not to sort of tanker but.
Really get serious about.
When the other first of all they they had and it they have no choice they're gonna have -- -- -- -- that generations of -- choice but.
We made -- loud and investments are way way way way way they they're gonna have fifteen to seventy freshman.
That are coming in with their with they're -- -- -- that fire I mean they're gonna want a lot of good stuff to happen and they're gonna hold their leadership.
One to the pledge to the to America.
Which has some specific things in there things that are very important number one -- the repealing Health Care Reform that.
To me would be the first thing they should do.
Number two they talk about it but I think they should put it -- better language they need -- one at least a one to two year moratorium on all new regulations.
Number three and they talk about that number three they're gone they would they wanna put back spending back tonight back to 2008 levels which means.
No more stimulus.
No more bailouts.
Number no more than he's spending that that Obama is doing those are the kinds of things happen and -- and -- not include social security and Medicare.
What I understand that but I had challenge you to go back in history.
My last -- majority leader I started the effort and they mentioned it in the pledge to America to regularly look at it all entitlements.
And my last agenda we cut spending for the first time since Ronald Reagan only went.
Hey yeah that's what I thought he did a lot of gutsy things but we're not eleven.
You're not there anymore and these guys let me talk a good games -- but I'm telling you they don't do it.
And and that's just not true and that we we -- -- every entitlement and frankly they ought to do it every year just like appropriations.
Go through every entitlement start squeezing them down reform them change them.
I mean I I know you may not appreciate it but the reforms we did -- Medicare actually cut.
The bend the cost -- Medicare so that we did it for eleven years.
-- -- his son is I think you're great I think there's a big difference between your guts and the guts of this generation.
Of Republicans that's all I'm saying I'm not -- and as a group.
But that's but I but I just saying the -- they don't follow through with the specifics.
And hopefully maybe like you very well -- Wilson.
-- that I think he got I've got a great number of new young.
Republic are -- -- that wouldn't be in there.
And and into leadership that will do what they said and the American people hold them accountable if they don't well you -- about that the American people Tom DeLay is always a pleasure sorry about the technical problems they were not -- can have finished Tom DeLay.
