C-SPAN: Open Phones on "Fiscal Cliff" Agreement, Jan 1, 2013|

TIME LINe 3 minutes.
00:00:00 IS NOT ABOUT A DEMOCRAT ISSUE OR REPUBLICAN ISSUE.
00:00:10 WE BORROW 40 CENTS ON EVERY DOLLAR. THAT IS AFFECTING OUR CHILDREN --
WHETHER WE ARE DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN.
00:00:32 WE HAVE A MORALITY PROBLEM.
00:00:39 SPECIAL INTERESTS IN CONGRESS -- HAD TWO YEARS TO DEAL WITH THESE THINGS.
00:00:43 THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED.
00:00:50 WE HAVE A MORALITY PROBLEM.
00:01:04 REAGAN INCREASED THE GOVERNMENT, BUSH INCREASED THE GOVERNMENT, CLINTON INCREASED THE GOVERNMENT, OBAMA INCREASED THE GOVERNMENT.
00:01:13 WE HAVE MORE -- HOST: WHAT YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN IN THE HOUSE?
00:01:28 CALLER: THEY NEED TO NOT GO ON HOLIDAY.
00:01:35 THEY NEED TO TAKE THE MEASURE.
00:01:38 AND WHEN CAN AT THE AMERICAN PUBLIC PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROCESS?
00:01:41 WE CANNOT.
00:01:43 THEY GIVE US ONE DAY TO READ THE BILL.
00:01:45 THERE IS NO WAY THAT OUR PEOPLE CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE PROCESS.
00:01:52 WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT INCREASES IN REVENUE.
00:01:58 I UNDERSTAND THAT, BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOME KIND OF COMEBACK AND I DO NOT BEEN THERE NEEDS TO BE SOME INCREASE IN SPENDING.
00:02:05 OUR DEFENSE SPENDING IS OUTRAGEOUS.
00:02:09 OUR FOREIGN AID TO COUNTRIES IS OUTRAGEOUS.
00:02:12 WE PROP UP DICTATORS.
00:02:15 WE ARE ALLIES WITH AL QAEDA WHEN WE WANT TO BEAT THE SOVIET UNION, BUT THEN ENEMIES WITH THEM WHEN WE WANT TO BE IN AFGHANISTAN.
00:02:27 IT DOES HAVE TO DO WITH ENTITLEMENTS, BUT ALSO BIG GOVERNMENT IS WORKING WITH BIG CORPORATIONS PREPARE UNTIL THE REPUBLICANS WANT TO GET OVER THE INDUSTRIAL MILITARY COMPLEX...
