Morning talk -- talk Thomas -- today. At 5:30 PM Scott -- This state senator from my pictures stories it's. Rent rent -- that's -- I confuse those -- and. -- are -- down the Needham. It's my doubted them at twelve cities and towns that can. And you're running for US senate I -- -- can do you have 47 year -- I'm not gonna support anyone can serve 47 have -- -- a term limits pledge to full terms and finish since when that should be more than enough for two full terms. You know that would be a glorious thing can you imagine if Kennedy had been gone -- seven the -- -- -- that event. Seven. Well I'm gonna deserves five yeah and then there's a state rep in a state senator and something -- feel very strongly about it you've staying too long -- -- beholden to the special what party you term limit yourself fine for arms. Eight years in the Senate more than enough and how long do surface they -- as -- I would have -- -- -- -- -- about five men because and one the special election Mary made it policy of a credit of three years from -- you can use wanna hear the -- like chicken it's and then on good not at. So what's so what's going on in the race for senate well where we're obviously on the ballot we had over 20000 -- signatures done in three and a half weeks. -- were 350 volunteers we have over 19500. Certified. So we're on the ballot now the next thing is obviously raising money in defining a messaging getting a meeting the people and that's where Iraq. If everybody in our -- and talk radio -- frustrated obviously with our political system because they're there seems to be. This on crackle bowl a cocoon that the state legislature lives and -- that congress slips in and that the White House everybody since eleventh. I mean Willis and it will we listen Deval Patrick we listen the president would listen. What goes on at the Statehouse and were appalled on a regular basis. Yet the that the feeling is that there is no responsiveness and -- there is absolute rage going on in the population. They assuming get away with whatever is that a fair perception effect -- isn't there is. A lot of rage I've traveled throughout the state in the last three years and over the last year and a half I've noticed just so many people. Upset that not only what's happening fiscally but obviously -- have the three speakers indicted a couple of senators. Resigning in disgrace the out of control test passed tax and spending has no taxes have gone up on hotels meals. No beer sales and people are hurting and there's some real anger out there and I think it's. Benefiting me and and others like me because their there's in this in this race. You can send somebody down there who votes the same ways beholden Hussein's special interests it or you can send somebody like me down there is always been an independent Cochran thinker and voter. But how do you differentiate yourself you come her personally come across way too normal to me. I want it I'd like to see throwing things pounding your fists to an end and may be. Expressing some of their rage well by your very polite and nice and then I don't know if it people panic quite get the connection. Well I think they they appreciate being respectful and dealing with -- issues and and a thoughtful manner the bottom line is you have if you send somebody to -- some other Democrats down there they'll be the sixtieth senator. Shut up fall debate and ram everything through cap and trade the health care bill as you know local option -- government option issue are you against these health care bill yes. This is not good for Massachusetts because in any time governments trying to put a government option there with a directly competing with what we've done already here. I may be good for the parts of the country but for us who have 90% of people insured already. Government should not be in the business of of running health care I mean look what happened with the post office and a lot of other things that they've tried to do. -- no I'm not in favor of and that's part of the problem I have with the people who are running and also the people who are there. The first thing they ask is is this good for the special interest humming and get rated on a particular report card is Harry Reid David Axelrod the president want this. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- There -- there whacko left yes that's what they are and they may pretend to put they may play a centrist but once they get in there that's it anything you passes Trojan horse. For them to require that condoms be covered right. Well Lou this clearly something to be done because it was draining the free care pool in the hospitals and who have and to back fill them with. Hundreds of millions of dollars and we needed to get more people ensure and so for that. You know I believe people should have the option to have insurance whether it's -- throughout the country are here -- just how we get there and. Why why is it this model of covering everybody for everything is and the police say for everything I know but that's what we get in because you know that they keep voting to for more mandates wouldn't the answer to this thing be. Two offer everybody catastrophic health care plan is now we're really neat so that families are destroyed financially. After 5000 dollar 7510. Grand whatever you settle it was. Hundred -- gonna be covered you know off to be worried about being thrown off your plan blob Obama will and where does that we really need -- we're getting the office of the one of the biggest things that people whose families have concerns over his that one issued a heart attack the cancer and that they have. To use all their life savings for and it's it's one of the things that is is very very important to people 6172666. Seats succeed if you question for Scott Brown is running for US senate. To be the new Ted Kennedy you'll have to put on a couple under -- to go happened now you're gonna stay in shape if you get and then I'll certainly try have actually -- six pounds doing this. Who last month and so you're not. Eating the -- that you come walking now and in Nigeria is I'm gonna grab one on the way out oil America -- I want you -- the -- SOS for your parents here to set the boxer here. -- -- that's a so the what what do you think -- health care is actually not the vignali -- for the and not only locally here where we've received bone to the rainy day fund in our taxes are out of control but nationally -- the federal deficit in the and obviously the the way that they're doing things down there's just is completely contrary to what I think. How disastrous is economy going to be next year are specially Massachusetts where. -- been all kinds of tricks all kinds of bail -- from Washington and still they needed to raise taxes and still they can't cut the budget fast enough. What's next -- gonna be like this it's gonna be ugly and we've warned a lot of our cities and towns of that fact him and -- down to a tax increases two billion dollars each pretty much. And taxes and never the answer especially in runner and a recession and people are hurting himself a little latter would you you're doing a very mild -- Taxes are never are they answer how about that continue to -- a copy have been it's not the answer especially right now it's not the answer and we've been very clear on that and it as you know I've I've never voted for a tax increase and feel very. Good about that -- so many more things that we could do now in Massachusetts -- but also federally took. Get a hold of this deficit in the national debt as you know is thirteen trillion dollars. The deficit went from 400 billion and a bush up to one point four trillion dollars in that those ET number of us are standing scary I how to we and our grandchildren and our. Our great grandchildren pay that back. And you know welcome to go further and talk about the fact that you know China and other countries on all that debt sure. -- -- -- -- get -- all that though let's take some calls as -- people wanna talk to 6172666868. Todd fiber here Tom is off today. And Scott Brown isn't studio running for US senate John good morning your NW RKO. I've got -- good morning I talk -- the question that in and out. War on the Detroit help to achieve that. Because. Everybody -- be a part. -- the second part of the question. I kept it overwhelmed by the amount of people that I join -- in these insurance partnership. -- and they're always shocked when they give away free money that people take it. Exactly -- -- I -- where it could always walk -- where that money can't. There have bought it after that we does that mean is obviously the great help here number. It comes from great actor director and we -- it will be I ambulatory healthcare. I'm no I don't believe so at all we took actually money that was -- coming from the federal government and also from. The uncompensated healthcare pulled the monies that we were giving hospitals infected we're used to pay for this and obviously there's an employer contribution AMD. Purchase -- contribution we gave through the connector into also. You know the various types of plans commonwealth care. Provided you know pretty good plans for a lot of folks that want that type of its -- doesn't the wind come when we finally walk away from the bribes comer from Washington is that we have to do for example. We just raise taxes in the state amassed why is it's almost. Well that the sales tax increase and what else you know there was the tobacco increasing and the meals tax and in the bureau tax and yeah miserable most of them. So that money is being used to some extent that we we could save a billion dollars or we cut out commonwealth -- You could save a ton of money yes so -- isn't it better to stop this. Excessive dependency and the federal government -- -- under this has Medicaid money's gonna help pay for it and feds are gonna kick in extra money. We can't get control of our lives again. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Healthcare and healthcare coverage for all -- you know we have to continue to support the the folks here in Massachusetts to keep them healthy. Mike good morning you're NW RQ is not. Remarks sorry sorry it sounds like how it's going to do not want to fire at a lot do you he Republican Democrat. I'm Republican and considered the fiscal watchdog in Massachusetts and and look very carefully at every dollar that's being spent here in Massachusetts and always have. We've got my fault but I think you're gonna get some more dollars to the people all these bailouts -- -- we get some people. Why can't they give it to the people. Based how. Been seen going into -- -- some 20032008. I was backed -- military. By -- million. And the split so what infrastructure the government really draw a lot of the action. Let let let me just tell you let me just tell you a little bit about what's happened the federal stimulus dollars that we've gotten seventeen billion with forty ninth and actually releasing them money. And we have a lot of contractors. You know folks that work on our infrastructure here. There are now on the unemployment line because the governor has held that money and has. Completely disregarded the reason if we're gonna have that have the money we should we should spend -- get people working and that's what it was supposed to be used for. And you know this clearly not a plan here in Massachusetts by the administration to deal with. The deficit in the the the lack of jobs in Massachusetts and it's translated what's happening nationally. No one job and I'm aware of has been -- us as a government judgment created by the federal or the state stimulus. Plans. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
