critics with the budget come together. joining us now the chairman of the house judiciary committee. this chemical always great to be with you. >> do you support the new deal? $85 billion worth? >> i have many of the same concerns the conservative groups have expressed but you need to do place the blame with the president who will guide do its entitlement reform, said it that will lead to entitlement reform that is the problem. we have already done tax increases and that's only masks the problem we have
7:15 pm
with out-of-control spending. i prefer to have a vote to @%tend their current level of spending for the rest of the year and i think conservative groups would as well but unfortunately we don't have to hundred 80 votes so chair brad wright is put in a difficult position to come up with something that is responsible and i think is dave really small step but a way to make sure we do not get the tax increases to start the process that we cut more did we give in the sequestration area and therefore it deserves careful consideration by the house. lou: if i may say the deal looks like relatively short. as a return to regular roles
7:16 pm
in the senate and the house of that is the result would you agree or not? >> that is the immediate result but during this time it would allow us to handle each appropriation bills separately. that is important not to have individual members to have various spending programs but also to stop certain programs by cutting off funding altogether. my constituents based on the no cost-benefit analysis this is one of the many examples.
7:17 pm
lou: to other subjects in the interest of time secretary sebelius talks about the investigation of herself and her department does that satisfy you or are you astonish to make such a proposal or statement? >> i think secretary sebelius would serve us well to step down and the president to appoint somebody hugh understands how to unwind the mess called obamacare but since i will not hold my breath the inspector general should continue the investigation and that i think is very important the same thing to be promoted to a leading position is steve

7:37 pm
former u.k. advisor to the country's ministry of defense perry good to have you both here. i mean, this is a quick return to old rhetoric to talk about the elimination of. where is the iranian government headed here? >> look, the nerve center is headed by an agency that you just mentioned, the iranian revolutionary guard. what he said basically means that the center is in that direction. the president is doing diplomacy. what is interesting about that is that those leaders have won top boss. ayatollah. so whenever one of the other says a the end of the day, it will decide where they are going. he has not decided to let go of the nuclear power. that is why i am very reticent to believe that he will go far as policy. lou: is this an effort and an
7:38 pm
effective attempt to block his power from reaching out further? >> well, in order to acquiesce i think it is important that the ayatollah actually a line with whatever the ultimate outcome will be, but i think what this does is gives us a good indication of just tell the political leaders are split. who actually has his hands on power? is the ayatollah. he is the guy that makes the foreign policy decisions, the guy in charge of the military, the guy in charge of the judiciary system. lou: but that has been the contract since 1979, and point of fact. what is different here is we are talking about a split within the iranian top echelon mall simultaneously the obama administration is accused of being cavalier and, in fact, reckless with the negotiation have undertaken. does this confirm, support, or
7:39 pm
create greater ambiguity iran the effort to negotiate a deal with the iranians? >> i think the latter. the point you make is good and creates a little bit of ambiguity. the diplomacy efforts are on. in the after moving forward. lou: the iranians now presumably by some accounts, and we will include that in the israeli intelligence show that they are very close to having a nuclear bomb. but we have been told this by western intelligence agencies, including our own for the past four years for crying out loud. we are sort of at sea as to what is actually happening. we are at sea as to what the purpose, goals, and the approach that is really being taken here
7:40 pm
by the obama administration and what will be the israeli response to an all. your thoughts. >> well, first of all, the iranian strategy of developing a nuclear bomb is very complex, not just having the bomb, tested summer in the desert and telling as we have it. they need to protect it off. they need a fleet of missiles that can, on the one hand, the liver that weapon, the terrace, and victor the israelis and the other arabs and also have the anti-aircraft system to protect themselves if we want to strike at them. so it is not as simple as having a bomb. i myself think that the iranian regime has been the everything except the bomb. the bomb would be the last component because once they have it they will have to protect and defend it. that is what they're working on. clearly saying, we are developing missiles. that is where the issue is. the initial tip of the missiles, that is where the issue is. lou: at the same time members of the senate seeking to increase sanctions.

the administration, particularly secretary carry on point trying to say differ, the late, give this an opportunity to be a sell negotiation that will demonstrate effectiveness. >> i don't think economic sanctions -- the evidence is not compelling that they are working. he think about the financial institutions, they have been ostracized for seven years. trade embargoes on military arms , on oil, gas. it is not working from in the reason is the amount of centrifuges is gone from 3,019,000. the iranian continues to be enriched. stockpiles are increasing. and it continues to be constructed. there also needs to be well and intent. and this is a catch-22 situation. the economic sanctions, strengthen the resolve of the leaders to develop a nuclear capability, so we have pursued diplomacy. lou: all right.

john podesta has been brought back from the clinton era. what do you think? >> a reputation for being something of a second term turnaround artist which is what he did for bill ccinton during the monica lewinsky impeachment proceedings. he is the quintessential washington insider, spearheading until just a couple of days ago george soros organization, the center for american progress, steeped in progress in politics which makes him right at home and the obama white house. my feeling is that as talented a manager as he is, he is not going to have much influence. he will be a bill daley kind of character, someone who is brought in ostensibly to try to out straighten things out. the inner circle remains the inner circle. that is it. lou: that is a very tight group. let me ask you this. is the fact that no one has been fired here because there is pleasure at their service or is it because the optics don't permit it?

layer and someone else who are being brought in for what is clearly a desperate white house. >> it is a good point. i do think adding to what i think is essentially an echo chamber for the obama administration is a good thing. they need fresh vision and voice. they do need to listen. the president can no longer afford to hear what he wants to, and i think that the numbers are finally resonating with him that it is time to make a change. i do think the inner circle is slightly bigger than the first lady. but i do think that certainly that is not going to cut it. some accountability needs to be had in this white house which would include some heads rolling. i don't think the optics would be all that mattered. the american people would be happy to see the president's stepping forward in a meaningful way. that would go far in establishing credibility. lou: what do you see is the possibility here for accountability for a change in
