Rejected -- house GOP plan.
Are two other Republican plans.
Then you must come forward with your own honest planned.
-- prevent financial catastrophe.
And create -- more prosperous future.
I was senator Jeff Sessions challenging Democrats on the budget is point.
If the Democrats are going to get vilify represented Paul Ryan's plan to curb entitlements and balance -- budget then they should come up with some kind of alternative.
But that's not gonna happen instead Democrats -- the same kind of scare tactics that were familiar with like he had -- -- off the cliff and refusing to release a budget of their own one congressman -- -- Break the gridlock is Republican representative Adam -- -- Illinois so first of walk RG -- is there any plan at all wanna tussle for the all the effort from Democrats.
Is Harry Reid saying we don't have to worry about it for forty years.
-- yeah I.
I think it's incredible I mean that the big key is it's been 755.
Days since senate Democrats.
Have passed the budget and and what to -- we're supposed to do every year we have a responsibility out here responsibility to pass a budget.
You know look we have a serious financial crisis in this country we put Florida for a plan to deal with -- it.
If you don't agree with it that's fine but put -- an alternative and let's have a debate.
We can't have a discussion about this without the other side say what their plan is worst -- in a crisis in the face we have to do something.
Apartment -- big question right now is whether Republicans are getting cold feet in supporting the Ryan plan there's some people like Dave Camp.
The Republican chairman of the house Ways and Means Committee -- begun to save some things about the Ryan plan are suggesting that the Ryan plan is not the way to go.
Well I can't speak for everybody but what I can say is -- house Republicans were basically united and putting forward this plan.
We've said we are looking at what Medicare.
If you want Medicare to go away than just don't do anything because it's gonna go -- on its own.
But we're looking at a way to reform and save it your 55 and older you're on the same planet -- younger than that we're gonna look at a way to save it so that you haven't in the future.
Were putting forward a plan but again.
This is turned into this cycle that we've had.
For the last number of years where you just demonize the other side and that's why myself and a group of freshmen came boarding call on the president.
And frankly all Democrats -- Republicans to hit the reset button hit the reset button we did -- -- you know we do it on foreign policy let's do it on domestic policy.
Hit the reset button let's have discussions but we're just back into the circle of vilify and demonize well but I -- every team Hollywood I don't.
Get together though and in a real strong fashion.
-- come up against the battle blurred their rhetoric -- from the other side like grandma's gonna be thrown over the cliff tomorrow.
-- dairy is going to be probably already the polls show that most Americans say we can we can move to a balanced budget without.
Touching entitlements that's a majority of Americans now it's gonna take a concerted effort on your part to change your mind.
Why do you set up perfectly -- -- -- -- to Washington DC not to follow polls but to lead.
And so that's what we're doing remake top this at what.
Voting for the Ryan plan is not an easy vote to make.
But it's good leadership and that's how we're gonna get this country on the path of fiscal solvency again and ultimately how we're gonna restore people's confidence.
And the economy and get people to work.
Jobs jobs jobs that's the number one message that's what we absolutely have to do.
And when we're -- a fiscal crisis in the face you have business owners that are scared to death to invest in the future we find ourselves and stale.
By the way I got to ask you about your home state I know -- represented the country and a House of Representatives but Illinois.
Is he doing things exactly the opposite of the way that you suggest -- -- and should be done in order to create more jobs.
Is is is it a relic is Illinois a relic of the way things were is -- going to change and if enough states.
Do what Illinois does it doesn't matter what you guys in congress do.
You know look at one of the important days -- you know out here we were one piece of this this job creation puzzle.
Which is get the government out of the -- -- the small business to create jobs Illinois done wrong we've raised taxes.
We've created a tough regulatory environment.
We have a lot of work to do in Illinois and you know that's what we're gonna continue as we go forward.
To get that message out to the people of Illinois.
What they did at Michigan they woke up and they said we have to change way of the way we're doing business say with New Jersey.
It's happening around the country Omar's little -- behind but we gave and battle for house seats.
In 2010 so I think demand that people of Illinois -- really waking up to what we needed him the ways here.
Is the evidence -- our our voters who voted democratic the last time who said you know we're gonna give the governor legislator chance.
To raise taxes and see how that happens is there enough evidence to jobs have left this state that maybe that experiment has failed.
You know every day we hear about a new big company that's what can we even Illinois every day and -- -- at a town hall meeting I said wouldn't it be nice.
-- for -- here about a company that's looking to relocate and Illinois Indiana gets it all the time they get a lot of new business South Carolina Texas.
All these places are getting business because they have a good business environment.
Illinois -- we can restore that though in Illinois and we will congressman Adam can -- good to see congressman thanks for Kerry to be here again.
