example, china's access to u.s. markets would be impeded in any way if they continued to support the iran and north korea nuclear program. they really are supporting it, although the rhetoric is on the other side. as long as we try to persuade these countries that they ought to change their policies because they do not yet understand what is in their national interest, i think we're doomed to failure and a willingness to bargain and threaten and make concessions dooms us to a world in which iran and north korea have nuclear-weapons and that will be very dangerous world. >> you were paying attention to the president's remarks and meetings in prague and the signing of a new treaty. as far as the sanctions go, in terms of the russian response, are you confident that there will be any meaningful u.s. sanctions and that the u.s. and russia together will convince china and other countries to go along? >> it is a long way from truly meaningful sanctions. even our administration is talking about smart sanctions. the idea is that we will have sanctions that do not hurt the iranian economy

that have been shipped over to china? >> what would i do move jobs back that are overseas? we have a very aggressive tax and regulatory and energy policy. on taxes, i would go to zero capital gains tax which would bring hundreds of billions of dollars into the u.s. to create factories and new businesses. i would go to 100% expensing on all new equipment, so whether you're a farmer, a factory, or business, everything you bought we could write off in one year to make our workforce the most productive in the world and i would change unemployment compensation so in order to get unemployment compensation, you had to sign up for a business training program so that we were actually improving your work skills while you're getting unemployment compensation. we would no longer give people money for 99 weeks for doing nothing. that would dramatically improve our workforce.

american citizens and to china, muscle. we will pass the 60% level this year, and are headed towards 100% debt to gdp level. when you have a debt that is at 1 under%, you are headed towards the junk status. you cannot catch up with your interest payments. -- when you are at 100%. the debt will triple in the next 10 years. that is a fact. it is not sustainable. it means that one of two things will happen if it continues, if we do not get spending under control. it is a spending, not revenue should. one of two things happen -- you either include the economy to pay for it, and if so, that is the worst tax of all, because a reduces people's savings and the value of the dollar you earn, or you raise taxes so high that you reduce productivity. that reduces the number of jobs created. that is the scenario we're passing on to kids. for the first time in the history of this country, one generation will pass on to the next a country where there will be a lower standard of living. >> where should budget-cutting began? should it be the defense department, social security? where should congress m
