[ applause ] >> stephanie: good morning representative sandy levin. >> good morning. >> stephanie: let me borrow a term from john boehner, i am flabbergasted by the budget
which they put forward, which is basically paul ryan's budget right? >> more or less. i mean it's basically a repeat. they come up with revenues but they won't touch tax rates, and they don't really say how they get the revenues. they would get it from what they call loopholes, deductions. they don't specify where it would come from, so really it's a combination of the ryan budget, and what romney -- governor romney began to say toward the end of the election when he was worried a they were being tabbed as the party of the very wealthy, so he said well, we won't lower taxes on the very wealthy, because we'll get ahold of loop holds and deductions but they never said what they were and they continue to evade.
but mainly they evade the basic question, are we going to keep the high income tax breaks or are we not? and if they insist on keeping them, they are going to take themselves and the country over the cliff. >> stephanie: uh-huh. this is -- we have been saying -- i don't think this is fooling anybody. they keep putting forth something that looks like the appearance of compromise and it isn't. why does there seem to be no realization of the fact that they lost on this budget issue on their side? >> i think it is because they are in denial. they keep on saying that there was no real election result; that we had a dead lock. >> stephanie: right. and that isn't true. >> stephanie: that's right. well they wrote a letter to the president -- boehner and six
other house republicans, they insisted the election return obama to the white house and the gop return to the house requires both parties to come together in a fairground. but we know that didn't happen. i think everybody is aware, right, that it is the gerrymandering that has returned -- what they are calling middle ground is not middle ground, right? >> it isn't middle ground and there wasn't a dead locked election. they forget a couple of things number 1 that there was an election, and the people spoke and number two if you look at every survey -- i guess the second point is in this campaign there was a clear, clear outline by the president of where he stood, no secret. there had to be a continuation of the middle class tax cut, and
an end of the tax cut for the very wealthy in -- in 2010 they got over 90%, the upper 1% -- 90% over that of the income growth, and the third point, the surveys show after the election all of them -- that if you ask people should there be continuation of the middle class tax cuts? yes. should there be a continuation of the tax cuts for the very wealthy? no. the surveys are very clear. >> stephanie: this basically feigning shock at economic proposals that the president has put forward many times before and the voters just voted for, for mitch mcconnell to say he burst out laughing, and john boehner to say he was flabber
-- flabbergasted it is incredible. >> essentially they come up with a status quo proposal. >> stephanie: right. and the status quo that just lost. >> yeah, they are status quo, and that -- so that won't work. >> stephanie: representative what -- is nancy pelosi -- are we going -- is she going to put that forward this week in the house? the voting on the middle class tax cuts? >> absolutely. we have a discharge petition that's being filed at noon, almost as we speak, in an hour three quarters it will be put forth and congressman walsh from minnesota and myself will sign it, and we'll ask other democrats to sign it and i hope the republicans will sign it. essentially what it says is take up the senate bill. we all agree that the middle class tax cuts should be
continued. let's do it. and we'll see. >> stephanie: right. >> the republicans instead essentially are acting as if -- if there's a cliff, there's a way to not go over it by doing everything except what the president insisted during the campaign needed to be done and the people spoke. >> stephanie: yep, that's right. well if you had to make a prediction today how this is going to play out, what would you say? >> i said yesterday i'm optimistic, and the reason is that -- you know, often in elections issues in campaigns -- issues are fuzzy. this issue wasn't fuzzy. this issue was clear-cut. >> stephanie: yeah it's essentially the largest issue the president ran on, i think. >> i think it was that the auto companies, the 47% analysis
of -- of -- statement of the governor. no, no. i think -- i think sometimes elections don't have clear messages. this time there was a clear message, and you can argue is a clear message a mandate or not? a clear message is at the very least a clear message. that's why i'm optimistic. the republicans have cornered themselves and essentially made norquist kind of their referee. they are going to have to end that. >> stephanie: yep, absolutely. representative good luck this week. >> thanks we need a bit of that. >> stephanie: thanks so much. >> the main thing is to keep mighting. >> stephanie: that's right. we'll talk to you again soon.

[ buzzer ] >> stephanie: this is what mitt romney was criticized for, was he was not specific. >> uh-huh. >> stephanie: and the math just does not work. jay carney again. >> making vague promises about achieving revenue through
capping deductions or closing loopholes simply doesn't add up to a serious proposal. >> stephanie: yes, exactly. -- their proposal is the one that is unserious. >> flabbergasted about it's unserousness,ness,ness. >> stephanie: it's like oh please boner. did he rehearse that? oh my god you can't be serious. i'm flabbergasted -- because you already commented on it back in october. he literally -- boner literally said i have never seen anything like it. >> it's outrageous. >> computer says yes. >> stephanie: yes, you have. >> flabbergasted! >> stephanie: i'm telling you he rehearsed at the tavern. >> an outrage!

anything. and my second observation is when claire mccaskill said i met him. he is nice. but who is he? and this is where grover gets his strength. he has flown under the radar for 20 years, and have these people signing these pledges, and he is more in touch with those senator, because he is just a lobbyist -- >> stephanie: and the premise of almost every meet the press turned out to be wrong. >> caller: right. >> stephanie: and i couldn't wait to tune in, the meet the press right after the election -- >> caller: right. >> stephanie: we played this over and over david gregory literally asked do you think president obama should bring mitt romney in to negotiate the fiscal cliff. >> caller: i think my brain unattached from my spine when i
heard that.

upon my most hotel chains i came across mornings with joe. the president just won election on this issue, and it really is -- as you call it mock horror, right? >> yeah, i think even in his -- his quivering heart of hearts john boehner knows the essential parameters of the deal are going to be what geithner laid out, not what he laid out. >> stephanie: yeah. we have been mocking him about i have never seen anything like this. yes, you do. it's what he ran on. >> exactly. i think this is a little bit better than the offer the president made last time. >> stephanie: yes, because he won an election in the meantime. >> right. there has to be some acknowledgment that if any issue at all was litigated, it was
this one. >> stephanie: yep. you say i have come to the conclusion most of the mock horror comes in the dilution that government should be handled more like a business. the clear basis for almost all of the anguish and garment rending inside the beltway. it's like you say, this is sort of impolite of the president. >> exactly. look at the lineup on david gregory's show. there hasn't been a single labor leader for two weeks now. >> stephanie: right. >> bob corker and lindsay graham, both of whom enjoys a government-run single health payer system graham enjoys two of them, say if we don't slash

once it's not the president's job to tame john boner's tax reform um. he has no obligation to water these down just to get a deal down just for the sake of appearances. i mean that's exactly it. the president has more leverage than he obviously had last summer. >> and -- and -- if boehner can't control his caucus then he shouldn't be speaker, unless they are absolutely convinced that eric cantor can't get the vote. >> stephanie: yes. charlie how do you see this playing out? >> i'm still very -- i'm still -- i'm about to harsh stephanie's mellow here -- i'm a little bit worried that the president might have that little
tinker bell on his shoulder saying make a deal just to make a deal. >> oh, dear. >> but i think there will be stimulus, no substantive cuts to medicare benefits. i don't believe there will be any touching of social security but i'm not entirely saying that won't come up down the road. but whatever deal is stwruk is going to be within the universe you know, set out by geithner's original proposal. >> stephanie: that's good news but i'm reading a story, gop leaders may be pondering a deal on taxes. letting the top marginal rates go up, blah blah blah. i have been saying like there is part of me -- if they stick with where they are now, why don't we go down as you call it
the gentle fiscal incline. i'm warming up to that idea. >> i think the choice between no deal and a bad deal is easy. it's no deal. >> stephanie: right. >> because not everything will happen at once. >> stephanie: that's right. that's why as charlie pierce says a gentle fiscal incline. >> that's right. >> stephanie: it can be fixed when we come back with a better congress. >> that's right. but harry reid is going to have some [ inaudible ] young ladies when they come back too.

incredible, isn't it? the right-wing has gone insane bob costas is satan now. >> it's ablazing to me the amount -- it's a real triumph for the organized right -- the number of things aren't in the discussion anymore. he said more than either candidate did the entire campaign. >> yes. he spent less than 30 seconds on it. >> and all he did was allewd to the possibility of discussing sensible gun control. he didn't advocate it, or endorse the brady bill he just said maybe this guy wouldn't have found it so easy to kill his girlfriend and then shoot himself in the head if we weren't convinced that this kind
of collateral damage is an unnecessary biproduct of our freedom. >> stephanie: you are right. you have take that right out of the discussion and you are right. that's insane. >> if it comes umpire to are football game everybody goes into hysterics. i can remember when every political campaign included an discussion about gun control. and now it is not even discussed anymore. >> stephanie: yeah. >> i can -- the idea that bob costas is considered brave and is for broaching such remarkable ideas is an indication of what

don't think they should exist. those of you who want to control your own retirement you can opt out of these various programs. you don't have to participate in medicare, social security, and that's how we cut entitlements. >> we should have turned over social security to the free market like bush wanted to do. >> geez, idiots. >> stephanie: oh boy. not since the ceo of goldman sachs said we can't afford these entitlements anymore has something so irritated me. bill crystal. >> we can say president obama is overreaching. at the end of the day he is selling a very simple message, i want to keep taxes low for middle class americans, and republicans are in the position of looking like they don't care about the middle class.
