Media as a whole has fallen under. I was. A deal where they wanna be censured by the White House spend and I'm I'm not some. Conspirators conspirators period conspirators theory person -- I guess where I'm trying to say is. Is that they are not really Jones -- you know and TV not gonna tell the whole truth don't don't play at all army. And I guess where I'm appalled is here's the last five years. We really haven't gone with what a a budget we haven't had a budget at all mean and in that process. I mean. The Obama administration with a democratic congress senate democratic senate. You know. Raised up that there's -- -- 00 but you know 6 PME six trillion dollars you wanted to -- sixteen now. Yeah you know and and they've created this mess and now they're trying to come back -- know everything that we created. You know when we made this speaks six trillion dollar. Deficit. You know surplus means that we attitude deficit. Net debt is so big now we can't do anything with -- -- we're gonna have to let -- -- there you know stayed here. And then you know you're gonna have to swallow this gigantic -- And you know and -- that the American taxpayer do it you know and that is wall. You know I mean. If and I household. You know I can't go out. And and give 500000. Dollars worth of stuff. And it's gonna run in only make that 50000 dollars but that's not fair and picked a MagSafe. While it's so big now I bet that I can't. You know I can't go -- you know all that Europe sponsor a way of pain in my 400000 dollar bill because I can't go under. You know end and. So they go I go back and goes back chuck to what I said last hour the question being you know does congress have. And government basically. -- we find more revenue or just spend less. I mean that's that's basically the two sides that are coming down president says we need to find more revenue. To me all of our debt and the Republicans -- say and will need to spend less. And cut back on our debt. Oh well -- there is the -- they electrical. Company -- combat through cash and on the on the back of his company. Boehner Eric you -- there's -- the company -- bump my head good. Right off the bat -- the guys says under bush we had 32 employees. Under Obama I'm down to two employees. Heroic and the if you go back I mean he's this. Shoring jobs. With his socialist agenda that he's trying to promote. You know NBA is trying to squeeze it all for -- being well you know it's for the betterment of the people. Why it's hard I'm not I'm not a Communist I mean and I know you're not a Communist but it all but you can't come back in have -- this socialistic bad attitude about things. Any keep won't have social programs. I mean you know. You -- kinky and then turn around until. Well we're so good now we can't beat what can't be punished all we can't steal this have to go through because it's gonna hurt people well well. You don't you don't via the the sequester in everyone's talking about it you know that's. It's gonna cut in total one point two trillion but it's gonna take ten years to do it. So. It's not like it's going to be you know all -- once all of a sudden what they're talking about right now. I think that's gonna take an effect is like 85 million or something like that that's going to be -- 8080800. Something you know yeah 800 for the big day like 800 billion yeah I mean. And the what's 800 billion. Toward is already. In all almost a couple of trillion dollars I mean. Good lord it's nothing I mean it's it's only. Have. Of all. I mean it was this 5%. Of what the whole budget years yeah I mean it's nothing it means. And it all and end -- pneumonia over the that they hear that they can't take any budget cuts. You know I mean this thing isn't Boehner is right you know whenever they have that big deal. At the beginning -- of January. You know it whenever you go to future taxes -- you'll -- American numbing the middle class taxpayer. They're gonna pay more in taxes we're gonna be paying more taxes plus on top of that there's all kind he had another thing that's been there as well. You know they're they're now -- They're the death tax I mean most people don't understand you're going to be windy when you die. You know I won't get everything that fit your family I don't get everything the government comes and takes their fair share. You know and take it. It had always put back in that was eliminated under the bush tax cuts but that's now backing him that's all been expired and everything current. Oh yeah there I mean there are a lot of things and and you know what's going to be cut basically on this 85 billion. Some federal agencies defense spending mandatory and discretionary spending going to be caught a lot of losses like this at a party decided. How they're gonna start cutting the navy says they were gonna cut back the blue angels aren't gonna perform this year everywhere and things like that I mean their ways that they can do these cuts where it's not going to be as drastic as some have claimed. And you know the president kind of said that today because as it keeps coming out and saying how they're gonna do this and how they gonna do and it's. He said well yeah those are going to be as apocalyptic as some people think which should. Well they're Democrats have been saying it was going to be apocalyptic but now ultimately realize you cannot. He himself has been saying this is going to be a pop up -- ballistic you know that but I mean now he's had ejected about face. Which you know it's the media would hold him accountable for more things that he says. You know we wouldn't have this all this drama going on in our political systems start off where. And everybody it's it's bad situation. And the thing is is I think Boehner needs to be you know praise for what he's doing the end and not being slapped around. You know because. And I think you know check I think there's I think there's room for compromise on both sides and unfortunately what's happening right now you know the -- the Republicans compromised. Last time around and I think they want President Obama Democrats to compromise this time and they're saying no we're still gonna compromise you guys could still have to compromise and the compromise both sides have to give up something and get to get something and -- -- that -- nobody wants to work together. And I understand a bit to see what happened was was back in January whenever they -- -- attacks when the bush tax cuts. Expire and everything you one thing to most who don't realize is is that it's you have what they call eight dead. I mean I attacks. -- reduction. Balance there -- because normally would happen is this for every four dollars that you. Raised taxes you do four dollars in tax cut. -- at all. It's probably it's called the -- -- ago they have to write whatever they cut they have to offset it by eight. Tax hikes or somewhere else go to somewhere else. OK but he realized that back in January when all this came in and Obama and Boehner was in the back office. Well we got was was 43 dollars. And tax -- But we also got only four dollars in tax cuts. And so that's why Boehner saying look we've given you everything we're gonna give you you're gonna have to do more you have to go back. And at least balance. You know that if we're really didn't do off 43 dollars and tax increase. You're gonna have come back with 43 dollars -- at least -- tax cuts and and now Obama being interrogated he is -- sitting here saying we can't be we cannot go back. And and and could anything else we've got to have that yeah he's basically a socialist now because people they and then. Every program that he is started under his administration can't because. It's completely arrogant to me. -- -- thank you for the call man. Thank everybody I thank you for the -- to 601878668890870. Let's go to Bubba Metairie -- -- you're on WWL.

Million really is a sick number and no one man deserves that kind of green. 85 billion. For the sequester it should have been three times that too caught. Someone else says the players only get 51%. Of the NFL revenue would you rather give the money to the owners. And another checks it's time for millionaire road known as Washington DC the senate and congress.

Reports say Joseph Flacco -- earned just over a 120 million on his new contract making him the highest paid player the NFL is he worth that. Or not. Log on to WW -- a common cast your vote. As we always say it's an unscientific poll -- right now home those of you who have been logging on in voting. 71%. Say he's not worth that much. 29% say yes he is this Carlos go to -- in Georgia they do or you're on the BW up. The -- you are but it felt I am very important times and I think they wanna play -- the carpet. What a marketable barrel or blurred up a -- -- probably better poor record. Provide a -- I would probably name. Three quarterbacks that are probably better than Joseph Flacco but right now he's the guy who just on the Super Bowl he's the guy has got a contract extension him. They're gonna -- him. Such armed robbery -- -- relentless -- it. -- at all concerned. Oh grow our area to call -- -- a book calling name -- ukrainians social issues and other. -- -- what are your regardless how that we got him to look for natural mesh we almost wanted to repression. And we get very good as you do you believe though coming. Parties still Greg McElroy and I guess seat. But I tell you he checked over release foreign countries like quarter how close the people who war profiteers from at least two wars that were. Not that she -- start. -- -- tax cuts but no we won't know how the history of the country have we ever had war going one war and then cut taxes never never. But we get that then so how about a real bad both fixed those special no -- no bid contracts. To a company that has since moved -- they had orders -- to Dubai. So you don't alert for people have nor. Well you know and in doing that that goes along -- every. President and I'm not defend and President Bush I mean. President Obama dumped billions of dollars into clean energy that didn't go anywhere you know although those companies went under so. You know and that was taxpayer money put in there are so. You know they all they all do that and it really needs to stop. I mean you need to stop the lobbyists -- need to stop all the other things the the you know the political. Back beings corporations. Backing candidates. And so forth and so on I mean look when you look at most of these corporations. They hedge their bets. They've give money to both parties to both candidates deceived because whoever wins. They wanna say hey remember I helped to get elected. Sure -- that the whole process as -- public what we have now the biggest problem we have but I think we Evan Washington. Is we have politicians. We don't have statesmen anymore. And the founding fathers. They were looking at having citizen statesman. That's what they've they thought we'd have who would go in do their duty. Then go home and let someone else go and bear the burden of helping to keep this country governed. But that's not what it's become it's become politicians -- become a career and has become almost like a business. Well dinosaurs -- -- for the next election yeah. Exactly keep keep the voter happy so -- elected again. And well now what that's not what it was envisioned originally. But do you actually pay protocol or actually there's clearly partial. Now. They should be able to deal unlimited donations to political approach I don't think so that's crazy. Now I don't think so you -- this Supreme Court here and all that Miller how much individuals can give and so forth and so on but. You know lawyer you gotta get through and and straighten all those laws all the pac laws and everything else and put together all these groups that you can put together in and buy ads and and you know support a candidate that way by not actually. Giving the money to him I mean it. Those are just loopholes are always complains about the old tax loopholes in this loophole or someone else gets around this. Those loopholes that politicians set up for themselves. So they can get the funding that they want to stay elected. It we'll do -- thanks for the comment. -- thanks to listen you 226018786689. And 087. He still semi 1% of you say. Joseph Flacco is not worth being the highest paid player. In the NFL if rumors -- a contractor true and he will -- Just over a 120 million. For six years on his new contract -- go to Bryant and Hammond hey Brian you're on WW up. Hey. I don't think Joseph Flacco -- -- -- there and here's why. I think you've got to do a little bit longer -- sustain that level -- -- -- that he had this year just say that you're the best quarterback and therefore demand the highest salary I mean you look at Tom -- you look at Drew -- You know maybe a little lesser extent you know Ben Roethlisberger. People who won multiple. Super Bowl -- gathered Johnny come lately he does not deserve that kind of money for that reason. And as far as all the loopholes in the politics and you know everything that's going on in Washington right now yeah. I had just started to form an opinion that you know our system of government will never work. When there's so much greed and selfishness president and here lately I've heard a couple of quotes I never really knew exist but I think one came from John Adam. In May be another one of our founding fathers kind of said the same thing you know that without morals and ethics. -- our system. Will not work it is doomed to fail so. My Jason bond that I appreciate you take -- Markoff. Our Brian -- gone. Thanks for listened to 601878668890. H seven. Some more text. Coming in at 878 so many -- has put Dave Ramsey for president the -- disappear. You do. You hear Dave Ramsey coming up midnight here on WWL UVs in the White House showing where they had free. That would be pretty funny. Some of the cuts that are of the automatic spending cuts here's what's gonna happen for those of you that or wondering about that. The federal agencies and their budgets. Including defense spending mandatory discretionary spend different kind of spending will be hit harder by percent. Here's what they're gonna do as a defense spending will be cut by nine point 4%. Mandatory defense spending would be cut by 10% discretionary non defense spending will be cut by eight point 2%. Mandatory non defense spending would be cut by seven point 6%. And to Medicare and other mandatory health programs. Will be cut by 2%. Now. With that said beneficiaries. They can't touch that okay in this agreement that they reach for this whole sequester thing. It won't touch. Some of the most popular relied upon elements. Of the social safety net they're -- Medicare for instance will be cut. But under a special rule that limits spending reductions to 2% and and also prevents benefits. Being reduced. So the cards will come in the form of a lower payments to doctors hospitals and private insurers. According to the congressional research service. So. You're still gonna get. Your checks. Other things that are exempt. Totally exempt Social Security. All programs administered by veterans administration's. Medicaid. Children's Health Insurance Program. Welfare. Pell grants. Food stamps. And Medicare part. For many of these costs. In the the sequester. That will take place. So. -- on any of those programs you don't have to worry about anything being content from there -- 260187866889. 087 but many say. That is the jump that we need to cut. That is the part of the budget. That's taking up the biggest space. It's not. Not defense which is gonna get big cuts taken there. But a lot of the other. Basically the social safety net the social programs to 601878668890870. There may be furloughs they -- you know. If people time off without pay and they're all kinds of creative ways. That they can make this happen. To. Ease the pain so to speak so most of the American American public won't feel it. But. They say in the long run of the keeps going. We probably will start to feel it as well in the economy. All right we'll take a break on dominance is enforce good 260187866. -- 89087. Lots of things -- Some people wanna talk about Joseph flag goal is about to be the highest paid player in the NFL they -- over a 120 million. First six your contract. And just wondering men's side Taylor tiring and Matthew you came down to draft another one of them which one would you take if you -- eight general manager. And -- the state of Louisiana banned the use of welfare money on tobacco liquor and lottery tickets however they still can. Get money off the cars VN ATM -- -- so. They're betting there's -- loop -- down. Are there any way to close that loophole. Should they oppose this I'm done in pursuit we'll take a break and be right back a bit of well things were talking about a course. Ravens quarterback Joseph Flacco. Have agreed to terms on a new contract the sides agree to a six year -- were -- 120 million which would make him the highest paid. Quarterback in the NFL the highest paid player I believe also in the NFL as well. So what do you think about that is Joseph Flacco worst it. I guess if you're a fan of the Baltimore Ravens here in Baltimore looking Baltimore Sun. They're all excited but they've got their quarterback signed again John and Missouri. What are you have to say about it. They got re doing and I don't find job. They haven't talked to you for a couple of weeks I think you get a -- pretty good wrestling show on a couple of weeks ago yeah I sure -- I park you know it was great. Well here's my question is -- -- you said there was 71%. Of your -- chose. Flacco was not worth that kind of money plus an 82 now port 82 well -- now. Dead even it is is is higher than when anticipated but I wonder of those 82% how many Eagles people actually. Patronize professional or NFL football teams that might. That's what I'm I'm anxious to find out about they say. These guys aren't worth the money but yet you see people all the time -- to be sporting events. He had not. I myself I kind of got out of going to pro sports couple years ago put I still like -- go to college games. He had -- a high school sports but I'm not gonna. Patronize. Something that I don't believe in and I sure won't -- be worth the money. Looked -- oh by the way your tigers are quite in my -- here in Missouri a ball we think's gonna win -- -- -- Basketball. I don't know LSU have been doing pretty good I have I haven't really paid attention to what Missouri has been doing the basket. Eldorado rolled your every -- South Carolina pretty easily the other night but I think it just so lot I think it's going to be a good game and -- -- a bigger game as well. Yeah one other thing I want to comment on and I won't keep -- You had a caller on a while ago and he kept referring to how well. Obama out Eragon was and his arrogance yeah he had not. You know it if you want to talk about arrogance I have never seen anything quite this many years but. The senator from Kentucky they're Republican Mitch McConnell yeah if you recall eat came out in public months ago months ago. In this was one of the most arrogant thing that I had ever heard in my quite. The end east stated publicly that that's his main goal. Was to prevent President Obama from being reelected. And and so he was concentrate and directed his fellow Republicans to do the same thing and put everything else on the whole. The end of all the arrogant statements politician mean I had never heard a -- so where again tomorrow right so. You know the urgent calls on both sides of the -- so far as I'm concerned. Did it sure does John and they're both they're both posturing they're both my sides got to be decide that comes out and winds. And you know weigh in the American people get lost and all this. Both sides we'll tell you I'm trying to look out for the best interest of the my constituents. Meaning the people we're gonna put me back in office. Right absolutely not it's not the American people like us that there's no statesmen anymore they're just politicians who -- constantly trying to get reelected. Student student.
