Let's bring in the other side of the debate my next guest says that it Democrats think a new jobs bill will be enough to curb unemployment.
Then they are quote dot com stupid and that their focus should be on small business.
-- -- right now -- Republican senator Orrin hatch -- great to see senator.
Well nice to be with you.
That's that's quite an introduction senator -- on stupid tell me why did he say that what's frustrating you about their approach to jobs.
Well I think since -- very very stupid things around ticker.
And I probably shouldn't is that language but you know I was I was.
-- -- -- -- except that.
Some of the ideas are -- and think about think what the Democrats are doing.
They've added this stimulus program that really hasn't stimulated anything -- 10% unemployment -- unemployment.
Is around seventeen point 5% that's because those.
We -- -- employed and employees those -- go part time.
There and there are.
Laying a lot of higher taxes on our people higher inflation.
I might add that there they're making it easy unionization and if they can get that card check -- bill through.
They have a protectionist trade policy.
Intrusive energy and environmental regulation expansive and costly health care as you can see here.
And enormous budget deficits as far as as the -- can -- all of this.
Is anti job creation and very very detrimental to our society and S health care bills one of the biggest.
Boondoggles I've ever seen in my life.
And what they really want to do is push people into Medicaid and Medicare so they can go to a true.
Single Payer system in other words socialized medicine and have the almighty federal government right here in Washington control all of our lives -- my health care standpoint.
And if they get that done that's won six of the American economy can -- what they're gonna do next so.
It that's what you get when you have the arrogance of power they have sixty votes in the senate they think they can do just about anything.
And if you look at what happened.
There hasn't been a Republican input at all.
The help committee that a total Democrat bill the house that a total Democrat bill.
Senator baucus tried to do a bipartisan bill but he was so restricted it couldn't and then -- give up and Harry -- that was put together.
Totally by Democrats in the White House -- there hasn't been any.
Real request for Republican -- -- pushing towards a single Payer system no question about.
Pizza still senator are you suggesting that this administration.
Congress controlled by the Democrats are trying to socialize the country.
On -- no question about them -- -- look at that you look at the health care bill that they want you look at how they're pushing people into Medicaid and Medicare.
And how they're gonna allow people up in the Medicare I mean let's be honest about and that's exactly what they're doing.
And look they're sincere they actually believe the federal government will do much better than the state government.
I believe that fifty state laboratories.
We can pick and choose from the best ideas from all of the fifty states.
And we'll have a lot better health care system and we -- by -- almighty federal government decide everything works.
Senator you mean you're angry and a lot of people in this -- -- they're angry I took -- angry and it's become very divisive.
Isn't this how we're gonna solve the problem why are you so angry how do we come to a solution that the American people can be comfortable -- Look I think I'm in the position of being able to say these things because if you look at most of health care of those who work in this country.
There has done this candidate match Harken hatch Waxman you go right on down the line -- bipartisan bills.
They got from tremendous -- and both the senate and the house.
That's bill is going to get sixty votes.
And frankly in the in the senate if if they can't get 7580 -- you know it's -- -- bill and hasn't been very much effort -- all the time they -- bipartisan.
They are really pushing us towards.
-- government mandated government controlled federal government controlled health care system.
And if we do that we've got -- -- knots because Medicare they've already run in the 38 trillion dollars in unfunded liability OK it goes.
The Medicare trust fund goes insolvent within the next number of years Medicaid is already headed -- headed towards and some think.
And they're gonna take 500 billion dollars or thereabouts.
Out of Medicare that's already underfunded something that's taken out -- put into a new entitlement programs come on.
So senator you walk me through what are you more solutions.
To jobs the unemployment situation rising health care costs.
Costs that are rising inflation that it's still a concern.
How do we solve these issues right now are we trying to learn so much too quickly.
Number one -- get the arrogance of power by from the Democrats out of office and get the control back into conservative Republican hands.
Number -- room we should not do away with the bush tax cuts those marginal tax that's our major hope to try and keep the economy going.
Never afraid we should -- fifty state laboratories to.
To do health care the federal government can participate by giving them the money that they ought to be able to do do their own health care.
In accordance with our own their own demographics.
And to go on further we should -- -- come -- but they.
Bill that basically.
Does well being and and proper care for people -- and gets people to do have healthier lifestyles we can do that.
We also can do a whole raft of other things that.
If six Republican bills but will have a chance -- we brought them up Libya are a joke because they got sixty votes on -- automatically against them.
Senator Orrin hatch I think we'll I -- you could go on and on will take my cut and I -- It's an important is set of images and I've got to tell you it's awful I'm sorry all right senator hatch thank you so much that he.
