Banks that make student loans and we should be capping our -- -- -- -- farmers that are just three examples.
I teaching -- -- things that the other -- presumptive nominee of the Republican candidates say yesterday in regards to the meeting that he held.
He accused Obama of having an economic plan that essentially doesn't work he said -- Senator Obama.
-- not commit to balancing our budget does not propose to control spending.
And has only one answer to every challenge raise taxes it is a plan that will not work for American workers.
What's your reaction to that.
Direction that's nonsense and personal that's coming from somebody who wants to continue the economic policies the last eight years.
Which have resulted in the weakest job which -- contributed to the weakest job growth we've seen in the post war period -- let's just talk about what Barack Obama.
Wants to do.
He's not going to -- people he'd love to balance the budget.
No credible observer has said that John McCain's plan does that I really think any observer has said John McCain find out that.
Barack Obama skill level with people that's a prerequisite.
For fiscal seriousness he pays for his proposals he pays for them with spending cuts he pays for them by getting tough on the things that we shouldn't be doing anymore.
In our government right and we're certainly -- -- I would get more and some other areas.
All right -- but -- you know the biggest knock against Senator Obama is he talking about energy policies it sound like -- -- as a way.
Yes -- 150 billion dollars over a ten year period in and investing in research alternative energy.
Yes a great philosophy to deal what the future of the issue but you and I both know.
If you look at the swing states right now what is starting to happen as Americans are more vocal in saying.
Offshore drilling should be one of the many options to fight the rising price of oil and gasoline.
How do you respond to that -- -- have to -- some of your ideology on it.
Oliver so you're talking about the future offshore drilling you don't get a drop of oil for seven years.
It doesn't really come on line any significant way for two or three decades and even then.
The effect on the price would be would be minimal and that's what we need to do today is -- energy rebates in the pockets of families to help them actually.
Pay their bills we need to address speculation.
And we need a windfall profits tax on the oil companies and put that money back into helping families.
Pay their energy bills does a three short run steps that we can take that are big that are meaningful.
And that would love -- John McCain would join us and support.
I think Jason.
To be on city I've been studying law here economic -- I -- pretty fairly clearly I have not.
In this regard because I -- it's the first heard you talk about rebates now is the -- the pardon fifty billion dollars stimulus package or something different and how big.
A rebate are you talking about.
I'm sure the fifty billion dollar stimulus package includes thirty billion dollars of energy rebates to families could use that money for anything we just think a lot of them are going to take that money and -- it.
To help pay their energy bills whether it's the gaps for their car -- the home heating oil this winter.
I'm such thirty billion dollars overall on this -- rebate checks.
So lobbying members who attended the meeting yesterday or any of them looking to be AF feature Treasury Secretary perhaps the vice presidential candidate and you -- -- -- I can tell you I was sitting in the back row and I don't think I'm under consideration for the vice president.
Pop up irate Javed it'd be great to see what people don't know is that we went to school together and -- me a favor and -- had a -- I will do that.
