And your name and certainly your biography may not be something they haven't fingertips Shalala who starred where they. In brief review who you are remote what do you know what is the biographical information on Richard just say. That two. From Winfield Massachusetts. It. Which American University of Washington what I graduated from college or rent for the Massachusetts house. Serbs was elected the youngest Republican ever in the state that's my claim to fame Levy and that's served in the house for six years we have for the states senate. Served in the senate for twenty years my last four years I was the minority leader in the senate. Which was really interesting job I enjoyed it. And in addition to they also have a private sector background. Professional real estate agent and failed real estate brokerage company in Winfield. That a vote for twelve years now. And that's been a really good -- really enjoyed that because it's really hoped. Formulate a lot of my views about the economy and you know just what's going on in people's lives straight you know you really. There when you're sitting at a kitchen table with somebody in their talent here that they don't wanna sell their house but they -- do because of lost their jobs are there underemployed. You know our seniors who you're talking you know that their house is worth prefer lest we thought was their whole retirements going to be different. They're really get terrorists see what's going on people's lives. It's really I think made me a good public official in the past. And it what is one of the things or make feel really good congressman. Just because I really do -- -- -- my finger on the pulse. I literally feel right now and the areas that are represented. But in the senate will Wakefield -- Winfield also -- don't know and I'm running in the sixth congressional district. Which is about 39 community's pretty much they're not sure. Boston including. Bedford Burlington Bloomington of that barrier there. As well. So. -- -- use different three years ago people. Commodity area rarely course for lieutenant governor would -- Charlie Baker. So that's why the name may be ringing a bell with with some people. Going to be within this six congressional district in Massachusetts. So what what's the southernmost. Town or city. I probably Bedford and then Burlington. And then come Wakefield saw just reading sort of hurt the bottom here. And it goes up as high as George north as. -- right up to New Hampshire border you pick up Newbury port Salisbury. You know. Merrimack I was in Merrimack last week. That -- all the way up in the big cities so there are obviously here Salem. Peabody -- Gloucester. -- as sort of a built populations centers. If you're just joining us good afternoon -- Nelson along with being. -- Richard to say he is running in the sixth congressional district as a Republican for congress. And that's one of the additional decisions will have to make -- the beginning of November rendition presidential contest of course. -- You know there are some races in the country that get. Targeted as being really close races in May be really important. We don't have a Republican congressmen. In Massachusetts. But your race retreat has been targeted by. People because they think you've got a chance of winning and then we would have somebody on the Republican side in. In match -- from Massachusetts and Washington. Yeah -- you know the big. Sort of -- called the rating agencies of political races are roll call. Cook report. Those two agencies have come out pretty much said that this is a tossup which is means you know it's a race that everybody around the country is watching and they have a good opportunity and I think. -- -- -- One of the things I am talking about what brought people visits are what you just said you know there is. You know there isn't a -- -- around that says that the Democrats are gonna take over. The United States congress again. Stand right now Massachusetts doesn't have any representation. You know what decisions being made there's nobody in the wrong from Massachusetts who can really say here -- things that are important. To this state -- region. And bring those issues forward so you know I think a lot of people look at this -- is being important all you know obviously because they. You know they want different point of view of Washington but also to be down there to be able to really you know work with Scott. You know try to help push. Agenda or are items through that are beneficial to our area. Well let's go away and -- of these. The issues of the day most important issues in this campaign from your point of view. -- let's let's do three of them take it from the top what's the most important issue. Well obviously the economy jobless. The fiscal condition of the country is the major issue. A guy I really do think that you know the country is teetering right on the brink right now. And bill Warren are unsustainable. Can't help but we're gonna end up being increased. Within a very short period of time you know forty cents of every dollar that the federal government spends -- -- right now and that's just for operational cost. So I know you know my business so be out of business but within a very short period of time most of your listeners. Could never afford to salute you run their -- holes like but yet the federal government's doing that. There accumulating just amass those enormous debt. You know sixteen trillion -- counting right now. Then you know basically were robbing from the next generation and the generation after they're never gonna -- a fair shake and a fair opportunity. Because there'd be mired in debt and paying off you know although mismanagement in the states that are being made it right now. I think it's starting to affect the economy right -- the reason why the economy. Hasn't recruited in jump started. Like it normally does after recession is because. You know of this enormous debt you know because of tax policy and and all the regulation on the federal level. What would you do about it about the deficit that is. Well I think the first thing you have to do is you have to stop those suspending. The other rate of spending I mean you know out of a 3.4 trillion dollar budget you're borrowing one point three billion dollars every year. So you get a really look at spending and try to rein it -- -- being careless and and more importantly. In the way to get more revenue isn't by raising taxes. There's but it is by creating a tax code that encourages growth and expansion in the economy you know that's what's gonna end up bringing in more revenue. So rather than the president and Elizabeth Warren in front cherry -- being out there attacking businesses. They should really be looking at ways to you know some of the predictable -- -- -- And give small business so there's some certainty and encouragement to go and hire more people -- expand. And to do the things that you need to do to grow the economy. -- that you mentioned John Tierney Cheney is the incumbent and and your opponent in this in this race. And he's been an office for how long. We've been in office this will be his sixteen year. And he doesn't have a share the same misgivings about raising taxes that you do. -- you know I assistant torso last week by the United States chamber of commerce and they're really the premier business. I have a -- For small businesses in the country and what if they endorsed HMO and sit there and extremist group you know what what how to -- agenda. And you know it just them it's the same thing as the president didn't Elizabeth Warren coming out of Torrance small business sort is that that are responsible. For building their businesses you know it's just that mentality right now there's. I think is really holding us back in you know John Kerry has been one of those people that hasn't. It's really. You know those students been hopeful two -- -- some small businessman and woman for the job creators in the economy. One of the issues that. It's been on center stage. Throughout the campaign but now really is with the us who have the elevation of Paul Ryan to I guess recruits presumptive vice presidential nominee of the Republican Party is no question health care and obamacare. Do you stand where Paul Ryan and I actually Mitt Romney is now going to be there in terms and engaging in this debate. Are you are you comfortable with Paul Ryan's approach to modifying the health care system. Well I think that Paul -- heard the gutsy guy and he came out and you know big I described a minute ago what's the situation is fiscally in the country we're heading off requests. And there are a lot of people who don't wanna deal with says he wanted to sweep all the problems under the rug. And as that happens they are getting worse and worse and here's a guy who has the guts to come out with his own plan and and pretty much say. You know here's the problem and here's the solution. And other work with Paul -- and other work with anybody got to Washington. Who wants to kill -- part of our plan. But to do things that need to be done to help the country I think I like some of parts of the Ryan plan there's some that I disagree with. I also like the Simpson post player that was the presidential commission. That President Obama it's set up and they put they put out of deficit reduction plan. And it's funny because when I came out the president or am I always -- but they came up with a lot of good ideas and I think they're. You know one of the things I really feel comfortable. Telling people is that I can sit down and work on both sides of the Iowa and look at everything and try to do what's best for the country and I'm not. Go down there will be an ideologue on one side or the other try to be you know use some common sense and have a clear vision. To -- the country ahead. You know you mentioned specifically help here. Medicare is a big problem and you know the countries and so much trouble sixteen trillion dollars in -- the Medicare program is. Heading off a cliff as well. You know it was better president's own Huskies came out. And basically said that it in twelve years the program is going to be bankrupt and still. Benefits they have to beat up by 17%. So Paul Ryan's proposal on the table. You know he did an initial plan and then he actually did something that they don't -- -- Washington very often except to know what -- Liberal Democrats senator Ron -- From Oregon. And still amended his planning and work on a bipartisan basis and -- with a stronger player. And you know I wanna be able without Washington and continue their process so that we save Medicare. For future generations because what's gonna end up happening is that so I just turned fifty this we've -- the. You can learn from people that boat people are availability -- it goes pretty -- first -- sanctuaries like this I gonna have Medicare available. -- confirmed by the language right now just to. Save the system. -- -- -- Affect anybody 55 years or older. This is the same benefits but I think cute looking forward and saying what about all the people under 55 we have to have something there for them. Yeah I think I don't even despair well my question by a way that. First half century is the toughest knows it's easy sliding from here. So ultimately if price is up to election. It just is no doubt that. The objective is to have him have a midlife crisis after the election -- is one of the things that that you Obama campaign is trying to do is to scare seniors. With regard to the Ryan plan. And you touched on one on the responses. And maybe you should. You say it again because going to be very important element and that -- about the Ryan plan. But and if the changes that are made have to do with people 54. And and younger not not people who or on the plan and -- -- well why didn't -- nobody who is 55 years or older. Would be affected in any way by any of the changes that they're talking about what they're talking about is setting up the system for people under 55. That. But those individuals would be able -- if they wanted traditional Medicare fix it's going to defeat traditional fee for service program. But otherwise they could shop around and they could you know that would be a number of competing plans and they could shop around and do what's best for themselves. They just something that's what every that's the plan in place that every congressman right now and take advantage of so. It's not a radical idea or at all it's something they had led them to younger people more post. To be able to do and the question really is is that do you leave. Medicare ideological off -- -- Or do you you know do you try to change itself for the future generations and when obamacare passed it's pretty interesting here you have this program and its -- pill again it's been a lot of money in 2012. Every year the president's. Trustees for Medicare tomorrow with. Report you're talking about their health for the program and when it became a last year they moved it. Bankruptcy -- five years so things are getting worse about it. -- they don't wanna pass obamacare what they do is it takes 700. Million billion dollars out of Medicare to pay for these all the new entitlements that are proud of obamacare so they're rubbing. Actually focusing European pretty upset right now we have their lobbying obamacare. I was so they're -- -- is -- paid for Obama here. And the other thing that they do it obamacare that's really scary is that separate independent payment advisory board. Sounds innocent enough but it's a fifteen member board. That's unaccountable. Electable and all of our elected to insert and all the decisions they may it be appealed. There was this board is supposed to do is decide what's reimbursable and what is an under Medicare. What procedures will be reimbursable what procedures won't. They're basically gonna stand in the way you know is insert themselves in the middle of the doctor patient relationship and it's basically. -- ration care for senior citizens so seniors right now if they are nervous about -- it should be continuing on the path that war on right now. Well other than. You know holding them self harm us and and fixing program for generations. I'm Bobby Allison on the line with me is Richard to say that's TI SEI. And he is a candidate in the sixth congressional district in Massachusetts. Of course it's one district but congress passes laws for all of us so we have interest. In people who are running for office he's running against an incumbent John Tierney. In a race which now I think a lot of the professionals. In terms of analyzing and and handicapping. I think there which say that it's a tossup -- there and could go either way. Two finish up on that last point you know when you take the money out of Medicare. If you're bound to start cutting back on name on the reimbursement. And that means doctors and hospitals. There's hospitals health care professionals all the help states. If they can't continue to provide all of the services tried. They won't tell us are dropping out of the program and of course that they drop out of the program and then there's even less opportunity. For people to get the health care they need which means more. More rationing -- more decisions by this government ports of the whole thing is gonna spiraled down if if it's not overturned murder I just saw. You know Rasmussen has been polling on this issue. And the most recent numbers I -- I think shoot 57%. Of likely voters now are in favor of repealing obamacare that's the highest number that I've seen so here's a piece of legislation. That even at church been enacted when we've had it for a year and we followed the the Pelosi push corruption which is passes so we'll find out what -- the people the people don't like it. Nobody nobody here knows what's in it because most of the provisions. Don't take effect until after the election -- there -- 21 tax increases you know if you. Have they come over. 200000 you have an investment properties they try to -- there's going to be a three point 8%. Arms sales reps aren't all of us the sale of -- or. It is also you know increases in the Medicare. Payroll tax. For individuals then there's a medical device talents it's 2.3 percent. But not sure it was more medical device companies. The biggest cluster than almost anywhere else in the country. Those -- better -- the only companies that have been creating jobs. Since we've had an economic downturn. And the bills -- paltry three point. 2.3 percent excise tax on gross revenues -- go to -- matter of the company makes process they're gonna end up getting start. -- we'll what their attacks and company majority of those things. Hiring freezes and it's it's hurting innovation and -- Elizabeth Warren came out against that -- which shows how well. And -- still really really bad. She found -- you'd like. Smooth as a got to be about one thing so all things that are in it and that I mentioned this independent from medical. They've brought up payment board area and some of the things that's very able to do you know if you're 95 years old and you need -- something about heart procedure. They're they're like actual word is they're gonna say well 95 year old always is still on average two years to two years of quality living you know. And therefore that start at least something that we reimburse instead of the doctor being able to decide and the patient -- constipation. We're richer and I'm up against a break we've got some people call -- can you stay over or you do your schedule does it does permit good okay. -- -- do pasta patient bills so we don't have the deficit here as they do in Washington. And then we're back with -- -- to say Republican candidate for congress in the sixth district for those of you who want to join with us. That on an act of capacity 8774694322. Is a phone number text message code 68680. Be right back. Small business owners tired. Welcome back this is Don Nelson Richard just say it running for congress in the sixth congressional district in Massachusetts. He's running as a Republican he's running against John Tierney a long time incumbent. And he has agreed to stay on for little while longer while we get some calls would you like to join -- 877469. 4322. Let's go to the lines -- your first up we have Richard just said. That does not think that he's a spiritual content being you know I really believe in many respects that America that is in the condition learned today. Because we've had so many Republicans. Go to Washington. Wanting to be bipartisan. Wanting to reach across CIO. And then. Not standing for their principles the only time the Republicans. Is bipartisan. Is when he -- -- -- democratic principle. And the thing is. -- -- -- Support. I want to see Republicans go to Washington. Who was principled it was going to stand for those principles. -- not reach across CI will not be bipartisan. But the stand for Republican principles. So tell me what to know. Principles it. That are conservative or Republican. Which you go to Washington was in go to the war go to the maps for and not capitulate. The Democrats. First of all I think part of the problem in our country right now. Is that we have had a lot of Republicans who went to Washington who became part of the problem there was. Part the other loss. You know plus the fact that they were supposed to be fiscally conservative and during the bush error. They overspent and the order of interest Obama and the Democrats that got us into this fiscal mess there weren't it was much we've been equally. You know. Effort on the part of a lot of Republican congressman a step forward sort I do think that -- you know problems we -- bipartisan. In the sense that you know -- they're both made by both parties. I think right now although the country isn't such an extreme situation. That you do have to have people you know who are down there hole least willing to sit down and try to work things out. To move the country forward and you know when it comes to -- whether try to do is try to get the you know get -- get the spending situation under control number one. I don't support tax increases and as I won't support him as a way to. Jumpstart the economy don't think it makes safe -- and those -- you know I served in the legislature that legislature for 26 years and never voted for. A broad based tax increase there won't do there's a congressman. But you know you do have people down there right now a group that -- 99% of the time where it's. Policy straight down the line like trying tyranny. Then there are some Republicans to vote 99% of the time. I think that that's -- problem in the country right now nobody's putting the country's first it was all ideology. Instead of feel recognizing that we're really bad situation right now once. Nobody's gonna go a 100% of what they want but. Asia have a situation where there's tax goes it'll expire at the end of the year -- nobody knows what the budget's going to be it's crazy it's still with dysfunctional right now it's. And it's hurting our economy more than anything else so it's a decision. Richard do about you mentioned Logitech trackers are called citizens for limited taxation measures. Well -- grew I hope well known to. To the audience that listens to this program that. Pretty good watchdog group headed by Barbara Anderson has our call you what a perfect score with them didn't have a 100. Yeah I never voted for a broad based tax increase sometimes we disagreed on by how much to cut taxes. But you know the fact is -- most people can understand that. I would be a good person to go down to Washington and they're depressed that I'm not gonna be voting for. Four trillion dollars of tax increases like John -- just did the first session. I'm talking to demonizing people on the economy do well either which I think is more reasons. Our army is in the doldrums. Here not during go to business people tell and they build this. But now it's insulting to people you know I think you know our economy and our country is so if you work hard. You know you really identify yourself when you're successful. You know you pay your fair share -- -- you know you shouldn't be demonized and vilified for being successful in this country. That -- the the which made us so great is our free enterprise system which is. You know created the highest general will they have any country in the history of the world and that's why we're so prosper so you know if anything they should be encouraging. But wealth creation in this country rather than demonized. It becomes. An element of villainy to a German -- you didn't build or across a bridge that was there are already different. Hey -- of the year sure tear gas stocks they forget to mention them. Are on the door the tolls on the -- 8774694322. Michael. You're next on the program with Richard to say go ahead. I -- -- has so you don't. You remember a couple of years ago when they were trying when they were passing obamacare the end didn't the the Democrats wouldn't have anything to do -- community Republicans. There was one day when Nancy Pelosi locked out all of the Republicans from the from the room where they were speaking about the bubble just some of the details going on with Obama Kia. And at one point somebody good enough guts to go in there and now they've broken but they basically get into the room where the Democrats for meeting. The end at that time whole bunch of them came running out of the room -- this fact that they could that they wouldn't have to speak to the Republicans. I remember watching that that the coverage of it later I had to have been on fox because I don't watch anything but blocked. But who come running out of the room with a bunch of other women and a couple of other representatives. But my good -- -- my Google representative countries TNT and the look on his face his cabin carrying some some papers. And -- penetrate through what you would be giggling like a little girl like oh this is the cutest thing I've ever thought. And I've often wondered why that hasn't shown up more often -- mean that would be a perfect campaign. Commercial for you. Just show him go coming out of there and explain the situation that was thunder because. I remember thinking at that kind of got my representative right -- about a guy that that's supposed to be backing from the east and obviously he didn't. And I just thought that that would be something that I'm sure you've got that if you've got the -- -- any of the programs and normally you'd be able to find that out that you would that they. The data we live in infamy some truth behind what that was. Thank you Michael -- wanna make her comment on that. -- -- world today is that you know what I hear from a lot of people throughout the district is when that bill came out here refused to talk to anybody at all and you know I -- a I see over really large. Medical device companies who was trying to get in touch with him. -- home hope the medical device starts was gonna impact his business and couldn't get in touch with them when he finally did you know. Kenny under the picking up the -- I don't care what you say I'm still voting for the bill. And that's always started the conversation -- bumped into another guy who was very well known I won't say what his name is. But we've won a major hospitals custom to go in and explaining how the bill was gonna impact the hospital. And before that so -- could get in the door he had just sent a resume. To the congressmen from congressman to look you know to sit down and talked to. And that's not the way it's supposed to work -- our democracy is set up that people are supposed to have access to their. -- elected officials and here's a guy who you know doesn't really listen to hurt anybody in his. -- constituency vote 99% of the time what clothes he's a rubber stamp. And it doesn't matter if it's sort of not for the district of the state of the country's got his mind made up and that's what he's gonna do. Ritualistic another call that I got a couple questions as well 877469. 4322. Is the phone number -- you are next on the program good afternoon. I'm me and Richard which -- I supported Julie and ran for lieutenant governor but -- said he found. -- asking me on this employee. I hear we're those -- I guess just sort of see your -- sixty tree and I would be in public housing. I worked all my life for 45 years and I instill a registered nurse. I would be on Social Security disability. And I can't -- here and -- helped. And their doctors Nancy I can't help issues in the public policy. Place -- -- People yell at me because I can't describe her own China -- you actually look at the way you're tickets -- well. I I just try I mean I don't know what you do because. I I I don't agree with its. Our governor because I know -- And should be undocumented. Immigrants. To get more than I -- but I do not know. While it's funny is these -- in the public I was saying in Massachusetts. Housing authority directors were afraid to ask applicants whether they were United States citizens when they applied for public housing. And you know you of waiting lists of tens of thousands of people. But yes the -- you know it wasn't clear as to whether or not you know American citizens should be first. Did the gone public I was saying just -- you go -- open to all of the states that are ridiculous moves from. There were blunt I'm up about me and I want I would like to talk to you about neat because we talk about. Business -- all let's figure -- from me you know what happened to me. What happened to me I mean I wanna come into your office and I want to be just this week it was it aspect. -- support -- if I was the last time. But you know what -- think I'm not kidding you people are. Did they treat you to take a -- you know court -- keeping you why it's the Democrats. They don't think we -- to do is get it back with people and say you know what. If we don't straighten out the mass that the country's in right now anybody who's really needing it and -- motivate. And accessing public programs the money isn't going to be there to -- -- and those are usually the first people get hurt. You know one I mean pretty thoroughly -- when -- got hurt so who's gonna help you write more out. So I'm not free to who to vote for -- is in a quandary right now. -- hearing actually. I don't want to be forgotten. Until once speaks for the auditors are ready I can't pay my bills are here like the central government. I -- older my mind by Egypt and Syria. Because I know that Obama get a lot of these things. But I'm just saying I I really my current is right now Richard. -- and I just say that the people that I quit which he I would love to have you com. And talk -- this is that he this year. And Ariel don't yell at Richard as well as you. You are more than happy to come in here maybe are not very you can guarantee. While I'm here but I can escalation and I'll make sure I guess they're embarrassed to be meeting our Ali many people like a smooth you know because I do everything illegal means you know what I unfortunately -- brought up right. I was actually born Democrat -- up like that Republicans. We -- open there's no you don't have served really why we have programs in this country knows that there are a lot of people -- needy and deserving. And you want to have a social safety net in place for them my oldest sister was at a group home question is physically disabled. And she just still wasn't Medicaid and there -- federal. You know housing grants to build the -- which -- then should he shares I don't know what you would do. You know go to programs and -- we all agree need to be preserved and protected. And you know. Rather than scaring people I think everybody -- to look and say you know what. The countries and a lot of trouble let's prioritize. And then in get you know do we have to do to get out of this -- So he'll give them give up Javier call me years your information outlook to come down and talked. -- around. Richard a myriad bishop we didn't focus a little bit on -- John Tunisian ventures into the world of gambling. Maybe you could talk a little bit of what is happening who is of course it was on the front page of the newspapers for awhile. And the whole thing. -- smacks of corruption. Once you tell us tell us what has happened with John Tierney. And his wife and his Brothers in law with regard to gambling and offshore locations and the whole sordid this situation. Family was running it is illegal gambling operation. First -- Wakefield Massachusetts little later. And then people and one in the business was pulled twenty quote there was an -- up. In Salem there is almost ten million dollars went -- rural. It became. Known publicly last October that it -- charity was the person managing that account. And. That's John -- wife. Right she ended up big getting convicted. And the brother in -- who was living in. From -- that living in Florida was just recently sentenced as part of this gambling whereas. Two or three years and -- and there's another brother would 442. Counts against him for racketeering and who's living entry worried now. So available question that's popped up isn't so much about -- these fairways. That's about trying tyranny and the fact you know his -- his wife has two brother in laws is. Father in -- his stepson were all hard according to federal government. All part of this gambling operation and that was taking place -- around them and she really came out.
