Thank you didn't.
The government lives to fight another day but that's not necessarily a good thing of the 433.
Members of the house only if you actually get it.
These -- the lawmakers have voted against the previous continuing resolution.
As well as today's temporary spending bill which only keeps the government operational for another three weeks another quick fix that doesn't fix anything quickly.
One of those brave lawmakers joins me now north Carolina Republican congressman Walter Jones congressman Jones.
It's a pleasure I should call your congressman carriage -- competitive -- don't watch.
Well I don't know why did you vote against both of these continuing resolutions these sort of temporary.
Hop -- Option opportunities for the government in one case to operate for two weeks and today the to operate for three weeks.
Judge out today and again it's a great honor to be on your show -- so much respect -- you but let me say this -- yet.
I'm sick and Titus in the taxpayers pay and their money overseas and Afghanistan today that corrupt government.
And I kids going out there and -- and given their legs that was a 118 billion dollars in this -- resolution by Afghanistan.
And if we can't help a child have milk in the morning and a senior citizen get a sandwich -- -- I don't know what America's about.
And a 118 billion dollars going to Afghanistan could be spent right here in this country could help a lot of people.
Doesn't the leadership of the Republican Party in -- that majority in the House of Representatives realize.
That -- -- Tea Party Republicans like you like Ron Paul.
Like that 52.
Others in addition to you and Ron Paul who voted against this nonsense today these people would be the leaders of the minority party.
Pelosi would still be the speaker.
Judge I couldn't agree more but I I don't think our leadership fully understands that the -- on nation is in we're in desperate needs in this country.
Why in the world do we have foreign -- -- -- -- -- -- 118 billion dollars to Afghanistan.
-- leadership -- to say to the American people is time to fix America's problems not the world's problem.
And they end up poll that's coming out tomorrow morning on the in the Washington Post your colleagues we'll see that two thirds of Americans believe that the war in Afghanistan is a waste.
And the troops should come home but how many Republicans in the house believe that and believe it enough to cut the Defense Department budget so that we don't have to borrow more.
Billions and billions from foreign companies and foreign banks.
Judge I think he brought the number is growing but it's slow we will have a vote for a sneak.
On Dennis percentages -- -- resolution to pull the troops out no later than January.
December of 2011.
I would ask your viewers to please the good news sites called -- members of congress and say let's bring our kids home.
I've seen end -- broken bodies at Walter Reed and Bethesda.
Outside of -- 9900.
I'll let us to families and extended families lost loved ones and Afghanistan and it in Iraq.
It's time to get our kids home and save that money and spend it here plus they'd collapse.
Right last question where do you see this going you're gonna have this vote.
At the end of the -- and congressman Kucinich -- resolution it's a non binding resolution you're gonna have a very serious voted about a month on raising the debt ceiling.
She got 54 Republicans today to vote against letting the president borrow more.
Pretty soon that number will reach a critical mass where.
Boehner and company will not have the majority they need to let the president borrow more.
Question is there enough understanding amongst Republicans in the house that they will say no to the president and not raise the debt ceiling.
And not let him borrow more money and let the chips fall -- they may.
Judge I'm with you I've been voted to raise it did say even though the last eight votes and don't intend to buy this tap for this reason.
All you do it is given this administration and the previous administration.
The opportunity to say oh we need to bar a little bit more money where that -- will -- rub my grandchildren.
Congressman Walter Jones it's a pleasure thank you for joining us thank you judge.
