Well want help from your congressman this week.
Forget it the winter weather hitting the nation's capital not just in the -- -- also prompting the house to shut down completely.
And our next -- say it might be a taxpayer rip off but it's still a good thing Ryan -- -- tax policy director with Americans for Tax Reform I want to get frankly Bryant when.
When congress is not in session because he can't do any harm.
That's exactly right that's the way everyone needs to look at -- People that say while congress needs to talk about the need to be here that need to be working.
What exactly do you think congress is gonna do if they're here they're going to be spending our money they're going to be getting us farther into debt and are going to be raising our taxes.
I for one hope it keeps snowing for another three weeks here in Washington.
Ryan you know what something happened today that actually does matter and that is both sides coming together at least for a meeting with the president of bipartisan discussion on jobs creation.
I don't care what side you sit on that is something that a lot of people in America really want to see the two sides at least getting together to listen to each other.
All depends what they're getting together for if congress just passed -- another bill that increases spending and increases the -- And maybe increases in taxes over here to keep some current tax relief that we already have going.
Over there it really hasn't done a lot of -- and you could argue it's gonna do a lot of harm.
I think all things considered if you take a look at what most Americans would say -- -- almost conservative Americans would -- Is that we would just rather have congress in for virtually none of the year maybe a few weeks just to do a few things here and there.

Darrell ice I -- -- -- he's he's a great guy in congress one of the few I think -- You know he's having a committee hearing about why -- -- we really think that Toyota is going to be improved on the basis of a congressional hearing.
Now but one of the things that congress likes to do.
Is that like to grandstand and sometimes they like to grandstand on the backs of honest men and women who -- trying to make the American economy run.
And the more congress -- -- session the more they're gonna do these type of grandstanding hearings or they're gonna try to change around the way that college football does BCS.
Or the other stuff that they like to tour throughout the course of the year.
These people don't need to be here.
Our founding fathers anticipated a citizen congress one that -- irregularly infrequently.
And went home and -- candles or whatever it is they did in the seventeen hundreds that's what we need to have Brian LS tax policy director for Americans attacked.
