[ cheering ] eight days voters from the state head to the polls and help decide who they want to be the 2016 presidential nominee. 95 republican delegates up for grabs and tonight gop presidential candidate he's the governor of the great state of ohio, our good friend for the entire hour, john kasich is with us. how are you? how are you? >> good. >> standing room only. it's like a million people standing behind there. >> oh yeah.
all around the room. i didn't even see them. >> yeah. i saw you have 4,000 people in rochester. something happening that maybe we're not aware of? >> well, for the first time in about the last month they actually know my name is john kasich and not governor of ohio because we didn't get any attention before, did we? now we're getting it an people hearing the message and they're showing up. >> all right. >> you know what, sean? honestly, it is really amazing. it's an amazing experience to go through this and i wasn't going to tell this story but maybe i will. i was in greece, new york. and people were waiting outside in line. i mean, i can't believe it. right? it's by the grace of god i'm given a chance to do these things and there was a group of disabled folks and they were screaming at me and disrupting. and the people started getting upset and i said, don't get
upset. these folks have lived in the shadows for, you know, 100 years. and they need attention. and they screamed a little bit more and then the whole thing ended. and somebody on my staff said, they're still in the gym. i went in to see them. there were three of them and they were very severely disabled. and they said, we came at 7:00 in the morning. they stuck us in the back. and i said, well, look. i'm helping you because, frankly, the lord wants me to help you. and, i said, we'll take a picture and then i'll have my head of the whole operation in ohio call you to see if there's some other things we can be doing because it's been a high priority and then as i was leaving, this young lady, young girl, she was 17. i didn't know how old she was. she said, could i take a picture with you? i said, yeah. yeah, you can take a picture. she started shaking and crying. >> you scare some people. no, i'm kidding. >> no. this is really amazing.
i said to her, what's wrong, young lady? she said, i never thought that i would have a chance to meet you. and i put my arm around her shoulder and i said, listen. so much of this is about celebrity in life. you don't really know me. you see me maybe on television. and you get excited. but you're what's important. what's inside of you, not some celebrity or somebody who you think is important. it's you. and then i felt so inadequate because there's people here tonight who have problems, people here who are hurting, people who are here, sean, they just want somebody to care about them. and i always feel so inadequate when i see a group like this and i kind of like, what can i do? you know? what is it that i could personally do to just make everybody feel a little bit better? [ inaudible ] >> you got a fan over there.
>> no. but -- you and i -- sean and i have known each other for a very long time and sean's had groups like this all over the country. i've seen it happen. and, sean, you and i -- you know, my dad carried mail. your dad was a police officer. >> a probation officer. >> a probation officer. >> i lived in probation my whole life. >> you look at them and they just want to believe that life can be better, that their kids can do well, that they're going to get a fair shake and it is amazing we have a chance to be able to in some ways -- >> i agree. >> -- help you and help each other. which is really what matters. like i told the young lady, the young girl, the spirit of the country rests in us. not in a politician. not in a celebrity. it rests in our families, our neighborhoods and our communities. >> you know, before you came out, you know, i tell my stupid jokes a little bit but i do say
one serious thing before we talk and do the interviews to every audience. i've asked you this question before. when you think about the magnitude of the numbers, you know, 95 million americans out of the labor force, 46 million on food stamps, real americans, real families, our friends, our neighbors, really suffering. and to add one point, government's hurting them. government's not helping them. and we now have doubled our debt. we now have 120 trillion in unfunded liabilities. and i worry if america's in such a decline if we can reverse it. am i too negative? >> yeah. i think we can reverse it. here's the thing, sean. if you go to a doctor and you say, how can we have a healthy economy, the doctor will say, do not crush small business with regulations because you will put them out of business and people lose their jobs, okay? number one. make sure you always cut taxes for people and companies so they can employ more people.
and thirdly, let's have some common sense and let's balance a budget. so you now go to the doctor -- yeah. those are the three things. so you go to the doctor and you say, doctor says i say -- i'm not feeling very well. he says, what are you doing? i say, well, regulating businesses out of existence. raising taxes on everything that's happening in this country. and finally, we've blown up the budget. wonder why you're not feeling well. there is a formula that works. i did it in washington as you know. i've done it in ohio. put a team together. throw out all the goofy politics. focus on the problem and go fix it. that's all you've got to do. >> when you -- you did leave a -- what? $5 trillion surplus. >> five. >> what was the deficit that you conquered? >> it was real -- i don't have that number in front of me but it was, you know, giant. paid down half a trillion of the national debt an four years of a balanced budget. you know what happened? this is the thing that burns you up.
i left washington with a projected $5 trillion surplus. it would have provided private accounts for young people in addition to social security. and it was house republicans, senate republicans and the president spent it and the republican president spent it all. the difference between republicans and democrats, democrats love to spend. so do republicans. republicans feel guilty when they do it. you have to have somebody that stands in the breech and says we have to remember all the people, not the special interests and pick at you. >> republicans, john boehner was speaker. he had the power of the purse. i've read the constitution and they wouldn't use it to balance the budget and the debt went up 4 point some odd trillions of dollars. with the republican speaker and the republican house. they didn't keep their promise. they didn't stop obamacare or defund it. and then they went ahead with executive amnesty and ended up funding that when they ran in 2014 and said they wouldn't.
>> well, i don't think anybody should make a promise when they run for office that they don't legitimately think they can keep. because that's what happens all the time. you know what? a lot of people in this country when they saw me in the debates, i would talk about my record in washington, my record in ohio. people say why do you keep talking about? i'll tell you why. today if a politician's lips are moving, we believe they're lying. so the reason why i talk about what i've done is if i tell you i have done it before then i have credibility to tell you what i'm going to do because of this. you know, i'm a citizen, too. people want my vote. when they come to see me, they say i want to be this and that. what have you done? i don't want to hear about the great things you're going to do. how can i believe you? what have you ever done in your life that convinces me that what you tell me is true. and so, that's why i talk about it. i went to just say this to everybody here. look. i know we're worried about the security of our job. i know we're worried our kids have education, still living at home.
i understand all of that. this can all by fixed if we work as americans, if we're able enenact conservative ideas and bring the country together. sean, look. when we balanced the budget, when i left washington, you you know, senator dam miami beach we had enormous job growth, wage growth, no discussion on income equality. and bet you hillary clinton talking about the clinton economy when she runs this fall and the only reason why we got to a balanced budget is because the republicans house and senate we had guts and we acted as public servants and not as politicians. >> really important. >> am i right? >> i actually was there. newt gingrich was the speaker. i was there emceeing the event the night he became speaker of house and you're right because president clinton at the time said, oh, we'll balance it in seven, eight years.
between seven and nine, between eight and ten. >> all over the place. phony numbers. >> you insisted with pete dimenichi and balanced numbers. you're giving a speech tomorrow. two paths. give us a preview. >> well, look. i have learned this when i was actually in new hampshire. i can come in here and talk about all of the problems and i can drive them right into the ditch and i can make them angry. i can get them to be divided, polarized, and i can turn anger into things that border hate. or i can come in here and acknowledge all these problems but i can tell you how we can fix it. now look. you just asked a question. is america in decline? are you kidding me? our economy is just -- by far the strongest in the world. we're the center of innovation. we're the center of invention. what -- medicine, if you take a look at life expectancy, transportation. we are just -- we're just dominating the world. now, we are drifting. we can fix it.
and we don't want to be saying america's worse days behind us. look. you do a good job when you're a realistic, not pie in the sky, and you can convince people that if we can shed the nonsense, of course we can climb out of this. we have had a lot worse times than what we have right now. >> the problem -- from my vantage point is i don't see the political will to get it done. i'll give you one example. >> i agree with this. >> for example, we have illegal immigration, republicans have said they're going to build a fence, democrats don't want a fence because they want a constituency. republicans want cheap labor, and no fence built which means not only can people come here for a better life and jobs, but so can isis. they have failed the american people on simple basic tasks. >> well, look. >> you didn't give us a preview of the speech. >> that's a little -- it's going to be a humdinger i believe. here's what i -- it's clear. here's what i wanted you to know. we have reformed welfare. had to get the democrats to go along. we balanced the budget which is
a -- one of the hardest things to do. everybody wants to spend. we got that done. in ohio, we went from way in the hole to now running surpluses, up 400,000 jobs. you see, sean, you can't really lead from the house and the senate. you can try. but newt found out you couldn't do it. you've got to lead from the white house. and let me just tell you this. we will freeze all federal regulations for one year except for health and safety. unwind the regulations we have. we'll force the congress to vote on regulations coming out of the bureaucracy and excess of $100 million. we're going to reduce the corporate taxes to 25%. we're going to bring the profits back from europe and not going to double tax them. simplify the tax code and lower the taxes. we will have a path balancing the budget. we'll move welfare, education, infrastructure, job training out of washington. we will fix social security. we'll secure the border and have a path to legalization and never citizenship.
and then we'll tell the world that we are, in fact, the leader of the world and i promise you i will have a plan to congress within the first 100 days that we'll do all of that. every little bit of it. >> we're just getting started as we continue with ohio governor john kasich with us for the entire hour tonight and then later members of the audience to will have a chance to ask the governor some of their questions. it is "hannity" on the road in saratoga springs in beautiful new york as we continue. saratoga springs in beautiful new york as we continue. constipated? trust number one doctor recommended dulcolax use dulcolax tablets for gentle overnight relief suppositories for relief in minutes

welcome back to "hannity." we're on the road. we're in saratoga springs in new york for the hour. we have ohio governor john kasich with us, the guest. all right. i'm -- i have to ask you questions about your path but i want to hear more of your vision. i think we don't ask enough of that. i think that's legitimate criticism. you're giving the speech tomorrow, two paths. i asked you for a preview and you ducked my question. >> no, no, no. >> i'm teasing. i'm teasing. we started to talk about whether we're going to live in the ditch or come out of the ditch and realize the sun can come out. >> you really -- maybe a part of me is always optimistic. i've never seen a time where americans are so divided. >> they are. but, you know, sean, it's about realistic solutions, a record that shows you can do it.
but here's the other thing. you have to show people in the other party respect. you can't trash them. it's like -- look. we had -- we had the president of the united states do executive orders which is way beyond what he should have done. >> illegal? >> should be reversed. for sure. >> against the constitution? >> that i don't know. i'm not a lawyer. thank you. i'm not a lawyer. but -- and then, you know, obamacare without a republican vote and then the other side of it. the president of the united states is making a speech at the state of the union and a republican yells "you lie" and then raises money the next day. you don't -- this is america. we're not a parliamentary system. so i was with the democrats last week. i made a state of the state. i asked the senate leader, what do you want? don't give me crazy stuff. what do you want? he gave me a couple things. i said i won't do that but that
that and i can do that and i can do this, and no, no, we're not going to do that. and so, what you have to do is you have to respect people in the other party. you don't have to agree with them but i have to tell you, we're going to have to invite some conservative democrats in to help us. that's how you get social security done. >> can i play -- we have to -- we have to do it. here's my retort. this is a president that called republicans social darwinists. >> i know. >> he said their plan is for dirty air, dirty water. you see the ads of paul ryan look alikes throwing poor grandma over the cliff. the nominee will be called racist, dirty air and water and old people to fend for themselves. how do you deal with that? that's what they're going to do. you say you have to get along with them. >> smile. and -- look. i got the guys in my own party doing it to me right now. >> that's true. >> i mean, the thing is to answer the charges. and but you got the show the way. and look.
this is stuff they did to reagan. remember, they said he was a grade d actor. just keep going with your stuff. one foot in front of tve to exp kinds of things. but over time you have to get people to respect one another. remember, when reagan was president, the republicans didn't control the house. so he was able to get phil graham, a democrat at the time, and they came together. here's what i think we need to do. let's just take social security. you have to tell republicans and democrats, stop screwing around with this. we're putting -- sacrificing the kids' future and we're hurting grandma. stop doing it. >> they already stole the money. it's gone. not a lock box. >> i know that. you know what? there's a way to fix social security and i'll tell you what it is. if you have higher income in the lifetime, you will get social security. you will get less. for those that totally depend on it they get what they need. that's the answer to it. it's not that complicated. >> means test it. raise the retirement age. >> no. i can get it done through means
testing. here is the thing. if republicans say they want to do it and the democrats are going to demagogue, you'll never get it done, and vice versa. you have to be able to pull people together, reasonable person. one person said about me, john, your greatest gift is you can get people to do what they know they need to do but they don't want to do, okay? you can get -- >> so you're going to get everybody to eat salad and workout? >> oh no, no, no. i'm saying we can solve the political problems and the war goes on. and -- there were so many times i had to appeal to people in my own party and the other party. we have to remember our legacy is building, not tearing down, sean. you can get this done. i wouldn't run if i couldn't get it done. why would i do this? >> you mentioned in the last segment, this is what the lord wants you to do. i know you to be a guy of deep faith. what does that mean in terms of how that inspires you? in other words, some people
might take that as redistribute the wealth. that's not what you believe in. freedom and responsibility. >> no. you see three people except for the grace of god go i are sitting in wheelchairs. some can barely move to move the handles. now you don't have to be a believer. you can be somebody not a believer and still look and -- we can't let them be in the shadows. we can't ignore them. that's not right. everybody's made in the image of the lord. give them a chance. give them a chance to rise. that's all. now, how did we ever -- >> yeah. >> how did we ever think, seriously, sean, look. my mother said it's a sin not to help people who need help but it's equally a sin to continue to help people who need to learn how to help themselves. but in the context of that -- [ applause ] look. to me, if you take the mentally ill, i would rather give them some help, get them on medication and let them stand
independent on their own two feet than have them live sleeping under a bridge or living in a prison. where did that get to be about liberal? >> i'm just asking you. >> i'm just saying. >> i didn't say that. >> no, no, no. but people say that. redistribution of wealth is wrong. the free enterprise system works. but to quote a great catholic theologian, michael novak, a free enterprise system that is not underlaid by a decent set of values isn't liberal, it's bankrupt. >> we have to take a break and come back. more with governor kasich as "hannity" on the road continues straight ahead. more with governor kasich as "hannity" on the road continues straight ahead.

welcome back to "hannity" and we're in saratoga springs, new york. with governor john kasich of ohio. he is our guest for the hour. i purposely didn't start with process questions because i know it annoys you and the other candidates. >> it's all right. >> look. the only way you can get this nomination is in a contested convention. that bothers some people. some of your opponents. i want to give you a chance to explain how you get the nomination. >> you know, i'm not comparing myself but that's what they told lincoln when he was -- >> on the third ballot. >> yeah. but you know what he told everybody. he said let me be your second choice. if you're not for me first, how about -- he snuck it in there. look, sean. nobody's going to have the 1,237 as i think that's the number you need and we'll go to a convention and there's a misunderstanding of conventions. whose going to be there?
it's going to be party faithful people working for 30 years, stuffing envelopes. there will be a ward leaders, you know, state legislators, former politicians. but when you go into a convention, you start to now assume a certain weight an a heaviness on your shoulder that you didn't have before you got there. i saw it in '76 because i worked at that convention for governor reagan. and what they're going to do is look at two things. who can beat hillary? i hate to say this. i'm the only one who consistently beats her in every single poll. >> why do you hate that? you shouldn't hate to say that. >> and, and they're going to think about who can be president. so what's incumbent on us? we will have to go to all the delegations and, look, the trump people, they're for trump, they're for me. i'm second. i mean, i understand them. so, you know, it's going to be incumbent on us to go and visit the delegations. >> would you ever team up with him? >> no. i'm not teaming up with anybody.
>> let me ask this question because here's -- this is the tough question. >> yeah ask whatever. >> if trump or cruz win more states, had millions of more votes, have a lot more -- hundreds of more delegates than you do and you leapfrog over there through a contested convention, don't you think -- you talked about uniting the party. >> yeah. >> don't you think cruz and trump supporters pretty pissed off? >> no. first off, a lot of them that will go as delegates are there for a variety of reasons. >> i mean the people that voted. >> well, look. here's the thing. your daughter got a b-minus. now, here's why. >> we had to tell the whole world? she mostly got "as." >> she got a lot of as. >> it was in french. i don't blame her. >> to get an a, you must get a 90. if you get an 83, you don't get a "a." i don't care what people say. we have the rules and the only rules we have are the total
number of delegates and then you go to the convention and if you go in with a massive lead, you're likely to win. but if you can't convince the delegates to win in fall which neither of them can do, and secondly, that they're not convinced that you would be the best leader as president, then what's wrong with the delegates on the second or third ballot saying i'm going to pick somebody i think would do better, win, and be a better president? i don't get that. >> look. i'm surrounded by all of your supporters here. i want to ask this question. this is important. >> you need to hear this. i did a town hall here. and then we invited you. >> how many of you voting for john kasich? okay. so they're mostly your supporters. >> well, but we didn't -- i just -- we send out notifications saying we'll have a town hall. people show up whoever they are. i don't know. >> somebody, i have taken the position. i'm not never hillary. you know the #neverhillary.
>> yeah. me, too. >> i know you are. i'm afraid of and thinking out loud here. 34 delegates awarded in colorado this week. you didn't get one. trump didn't get one. and it seems kind of unfair like the establishment is kind of working -- >> look at what happened in michigan. that was a battle for delegates. you know? and -- >> aren't these rules insane, though, really? it seems you can win a state and come out with less delegates. seems like if they want to for a time stop candidate "a" because they don't want that candidate to get to 1,237 using candidate b and c to stop candidate a. >> i'm not engaged in this. >> the establishment is. >> i don't know who that is. >> mitt romney. karl rove. said we need a fresh face. scott walker is looking for paul ryan. john boehner in your home state said nominate paul ryan. >> boehner said when he recouped, he said that's not
what i was saying. but that's near here nor there. you know when's happening, sean. >> he said it. >> no. when's happening is you have delegates who have minds. and on the first ballot, most of them are obligated to support who they got there with. but look. cruz and trump don't win in the fall. in fact, here's going to be the concern. no. here's going to be the concern. we're not going to lose the white house and the court. but we're going to lose the united states senate. we're going to lose the courthouse, the state house. so when people look. look. i'm beating hillary virtually everywhere in the country. in new york, the last poll had me only 5 points behind. why would a delegate who was there who wants to win in the fall not go after the first ballot and say, wait a minute. kasich has been a success and what he's done in public life, a he's put a good team together and he wins. why would they not want to vote for me if i can win and beat hillary? i don't get it.
>> final question. for the voters who waited online hours -- >> i know. >> to pull the lever for your opponents. >> right. >> those who spent hours caucusing. my question is, let's say it works out the way you're talking about here. >> yeah. >> how are you going to get the people that do feel disenfranchised to come along with you and unite everybody? >> because you have to spend time with them. and that's what you do during the convention and even after the convention. look. sean, i was a young guy and i found myself in charge of five states for ronald reagan. there was not a more bitter contest than reagan/ford. when we lost, we said we're going for ford. only reason ford lost that election is pardoned nixon and did the country a giant favor. your just move on. and most of the people who were going to be there are not going to be people who are just going to storm out and walk out. they're mature people. there could be people who will be a delegate. >> worried about the people that vote on election day if they're going to show up. because that would worry me.
>> i can tell you that i don't have antipathy directed towards me by trump voters. i don't know the cruz voters as well. they just went for somebody else. so then you work to unite them with a big message. a big message of what we can do in this country and look. i can tell you this. if these guys get picked, look at their negatives. they're not going to win. i get picked, we can win. i mean, i don't -- >> i said last question. i have one more. sorry. if they brought in somebody who hadn't run and they leapfrog over all of you -- >> i would be angry. wouldn't you? >> you know what? i'm running for president. i 'm in saratoga, new york. having the time of my life. >> until i came. i know. all right. we'll take a break and done with that part. i could have started with it but i wanted the make sure. >> it was good. >> we'll take a break.

>> would you be support cutting the size of government? >> oh yeah, yeah, yeah. >> baseline budgets? >> here's the way you do it. a cabinet and say i want you to give me a budget of 90% of last year and 95% of what you had the year. and bring me and give it to me. that's it. >> is the penny plan a good idea? >> yeah. more than this. >> how soon could you make the independent energy independent? >> i think that's around the corner. in new york they learn to get the resources out of the ground. we are doing it in ho h. >> all right. you're a lot of people especially here in upstate new york, you know -- >> let me go back the first question. here's the thing. once you have a plan that begins to freeze federal regs for a period of time, you begin to drive the tax cuts, particularly corporate tax cuts so people invest in america and a path to a balanced budget. if you asked the small business people here if they were certain of that, they'd say they were certain that they'd start working. you get the activity faster than the final. >> new york's restrictive gun laws unconstitutional in your mind? >> no. are they unconstitutional?
yes. i believe in the second amendment. when you violate it, that's wrong. you don't do that. i'm a second amendment guy. >> pro-life. >> yep. >> you're pro-religious freedom. >> yeah. depends what that means. >> should the sisters of the poor -- >> no. >> two different justices on the supreme court? >> well, i mean, my favorite, of course, is the man we just lost. he was far and way my favorite judge. >> i also like clarence thomas. i like clarence. >> you would appoint originalist justices? >> i appoint over 100 now in ohio and the first question is are they conservative? >> right. >> and that's -- they've -- i pointed a woman to the ohio supreme court. she's fantastic, conservative, common sense, yeah. of course you want -- you don't want judges making laws. you want them interpreting the law. >> isis and radical islam evil in our time. >> the worst. it's one of the worst things we've ever seen in history. so what do you have to do?
you got to get the arab muslim countries that we had in the first gulf war, kicked out saddam, that means egypt, it means saudi arabia, it means jordan, the gulf states, you got to get western europe, you go in the air, on the ground. destroy isis. destroy them. when it settles down, when it settles down you then leave. let them draw the map in the middle east and then we need -- i mean, america -- look. i wouldn't have gone to a baseball game with castro. i would have flown home after brussels. i then would have -- lot let me finish. >> you wouldn't do the tango. >> no. i would have met with the military and intelligence officials, called the leaders in europe. sent my team to europe. discussed our vulnerabilities, fixed them. because what we need is the civilized world, all of the civilized world against these barbarians. this is a cult of death. and what amazes me, sean, how can these people sit in an apartment in europe and plan to take a bomb to the airport and kill our families.
we have to destroy those people and here at home. here at home. here at home, joint terrorism task forces. that's why the apple thing got resolved. it appears as though it did. our joint terrorism task force, fbi, homeland security, state and local law enforcement. they should disrupt. we have a job. when we see crazy things happening, we have to tell law enforcement. and then, finally, just because we would work for example -- >> not a lightning round but go ahead. >> you're talking about -- >> i know. evil in our time. >> national security. i spent 18 years on the committee. i went all the way from the fall of the berlin wall to kicking saddam out of kuwait all the way to being this the pentagon after 9/11. i have seen all this and i know how it works and what to do. >> last lightning round question and then audience questions. three names at the top of your list for vice president. >> derek jeter.
>> henrik lundqvist. all right. go ahead. who else? three serious names. >> no. it's too early to measure the drapes. i will come back with that later. but i'll tell you what you need. no. here's what you need. you need a vice president who will argue with you but who is your partner. i've already picked the vice president, you know? i picked the lieutenant governor. i have made a selection like this. somebody that got my agenda. somebody who would go out and promote my values or not my values so much but the policies. that's what you do not just for vice president, but for the entire cabinet. you have to have the entire cabinet and the vice president all rowing in the same direction with a goal of being a job creating country and manage the budget. >> we've got to take a break. we'll come back. when we come back, audience questions straight ahead. back, questions straight ahead. nothing unleashes power...
