the way, a chairman who was appointed by george w. bush, ben bernanke, and was a bleeding republican. secondly you hear in rick perry's statement an echo of what you hear from demint. what do they say is political, trying to stimulate the economy. demint said he was trying to buy votes. how, by making the economy work and putting people back to work. rick perry says it's treasonous. what are they doing? trying to make the economy work. it's just confirmation in my view that these people don't want to see the economy functioning. this notion that the federal reserve is doing something illegitimate, it's their mandate. the federal reserve has a statutory mandate to do two things. constrain inflation and promote kploimt. when the head of the federal reserve and others try to promote employment through the various monetary policies, there are limits to how they can do it. when they try to do it, perry says it's treason, it's in their statutory mandate. they are under something you will remember, gus hawkins, hubert humphrey, the humphrey-hawkins bill says the federal reserve is under man

george bush actually did better, junior did better with hispanics. romney has got serious problems right now he is losing 20, 30 points, depending on the poll. he loses that bad, he cannot win some of these key battlegrounds. his problem is he got boxed in the primaries. he went far, far to the right. this is a key demo graph rick. he has to figure out a way to moderate. he can't, because as he moderates, he alienates those on the right and trying to plate tap dance and actual slit worst of all worlds because then it reconfirms the sreotype of this man that he doesn't have any core convictions. it is a terrible place for governor romney. >> boxed in at the bottom of mount everest but about to show up at naleo. gentlemen are i will ask you all to stand by for us, hang in a minute. we are going to get an update about this showdown looming on the house floor as gop leadership plans a contempt of congress vote next week for attorney general eric holder. republicans pledge the vote in this house will happen unless the president, holder and the justice department stop asserting executive

george w. bush. also a romney supporter. matt, good afternoon to you, sir. >> great to be with you. >> is this the last best chance for governor romney? true or false? what do you think? >> i guess kind of true. it's a great opportunity. i think it's a big mistake for candidates, especially when they're running for president, to put all the marbles in a debate. because really what you want to do in a debate, is first of all, you don't want to be swinging so much for the fences that you make a lot of errors. i worked for president george w. bush, as you said, and in his first debate in 2004, a lot of people felt like he gave a subpar performance. and there's no question that we breathe some life into our opponents, and if president obama, who some have characterized as almost a messianic kind of figure, comes across as someone who does not have a real plan for second term, he could be looking at poll numbers that get even more tight. >> but if governor romney doesn't unveil some sort of grand plan for his first term, that won't move the needle at all either, will it? >> i really do disagre

stumbling block continues to be the bush era tax cuts that you and president george w. bush implemented. do you agree after two unfunded wars, the economy in recovery after wall street put it in the tank, that it's now time for taxes to go back up to the clinton era rates? can republicans at least give in on that? >> well, look, when you look at where the top area is, there are people earning $250,000, most of those people that are doing it, if you look at that, they're subchapter s or llcs, they're small business people. those are exactly the people who take that money and put it back in their business. they don't put it in their pocket. they buy a pickup truck or buy a computer and hire somebody to work on it. so in my district, 80% of the jobs came from those types of businesses. so i think it's ill for everybody to try to raise that, especially on that level. if we're going to have tax reform, we really ought to do it by expanding the base and that can happen, and you can do it by capping entitlements or cap or spread the base out. it can be done. we also have $26 trilli
