Barbara Anderson okay citizens for limited taxation. She's the one that emailed me I read her email earlier on the air she's a wonderful woman. -- probably exactly. We have a lot to thank her for. She's -- -- she can't stand -- but that's okay. She wants me off the air but that's fine people can agree to disagree. Barbara how are you. Good morning Kelly Jeff I'm an area. -- you talk about the truth so I don't want to correct one thing so that's important to understand Scott Brown did not vote to raise taxes he didn't break the no new taxes pledge. And and we can't be accused of that. We mean don't we -- -- Texas just went up there for the fiscal cliff deal raises taxes on. Those making over 450000. Dollars in the payroll taxes went up. I must be everything expired on January 1 didn't at midnight. -- do -- Pledged to do that they've they've passed the most temporary taxes and we taxpayers get really upset when they passed tax increases temporary 'cause we know they're not going to be a -- you know they'll lying. But this time they passed the tax cuts contemporary. The truth -- they were temporary. And so they expired the -- just got done voted to stop -- limit demand for the middle class that you care about. Hold on hello I'm Barbara. The payroll taxes today go from -- percent 4% to 6% yes and. So if it's said to do they would give their temporary tax could think they once I point 6%. Great tax cut. He didn't keep it a 4% he kept this a did the upper income tax broke bracket. Going to keep them how would give the Republicans going to keep the tax rates tied when it was absolutely obvious. That Obama and the Democrats were gonna let the whole thing expire in the middle class you keep talking about and concerned about. We're going to also repeated taxes go up there was no challenge -- for them at this point because unfortunately. Obama won the election. Barbara look they -- let me ask you this -- Scott Brown not a voted against the cliff deal. It noted there could be deported to a point is you would've stood his principles it would defend his constituents who defended his values. Is that -- Urlacher looked and I captain went up part of me. What good would that do it and I actually went up well yes but at least you need to I don't don't want that I'm -- -- but my pet food ran up. And you didn't do anything to help what would probably has a choice but he's always yes -- what everybody grow up there with the top choice. Barbara I don't understand the argument is this. Our taxes -- that the fiscal cliff raise taxes on upper income earners the fiscal cliff also led the payroll taxes going up. Now either you vote for it or you vote against -- he voted for it. And he didn't never -- for tax increase in fact he's. We think expired on January 1 everything as it had been planned bwic temporary. Then he voted to at least two of them for the middle class that you are so concerned about. Although we'll get to that later -- you hold on wolf -- -- -- against it I mean and then earlier had an impediment to circular argument about the medical pat. What about the -- Barbara with all due respect and I'm making sense taxes have gone out crying again but -- -- Barbara I'm paying more I'm paying 4000 dollars more in payroll taxes this year OK because it is fiscal cliff. Small business owners are paying tens of thousands of dollars more in extra taxes because of this fiscal cliff deal. And your talking to me about temporary tax cuts these aren't these bush -- bush these bush tax cuts were in place for over ten years Obama extended them for another year. Now why -- the house Republicans just do this extend all of the tax cuts. And say more and offer -- we're not for raising taxes. Because the house Republicans don't have the votes. This -- an -- and -- his -- up at some Obama's aides. Yours and you know I kind of going to be paying -- taxes. With paying rent or captured because the spot where paying high. We're paying lower Barack Obama -- Scott how does this work out everybody I'm paying higher taxes but I'm paying lower taxes because of Scott. -- a -- Kyra we would have our wants to engage you 12 Steve welcome to the coroner report talked to were.

Now Barbara because there's -- yeah yeah Barbara. Listen let me ask you some asking you offered such a race between Charlie Baker and Scott Brown. You won't answer that question. -- and they would that there may find that somewhere in the world somewhere in the alternate universe are all separate challenge because he's. He's somebody that's one of my best friend always vote for him. So you. Are you a little right now and copy in my right not what I'm trying to find out. It's -- of Republican named Ali what exactly is every Republican play -- I mean I want to thank god splendid do you like twenty minutes ago but it doesn't matter it's like a murderer and all due respect you're Republican -- You come here you never know -- party promised him. But they -- -- the debate call people names that's true. Rarely have I ever want anything mom Barbara might taxes I'll tell you right I mean Republican pat. When I do want to. They're giving the Republican Party line you're arguing semantics on December 31. I was paying 4000 dollars less in payroll taxes on January 1 I'm paying 4000 dollars more in payroll taxes and your -- is not a tax increase. I'm telling you that Scott Brown didn't bow out for that tax increase the -- seeds are already doing a good attempt -- hold on hold wants to engage you might. Welcome to the -- report. There's Barbara right to ask you would you tick away and attack us god brought out there you go thus the question Rand Paul Scott Brown I -- grandpa already talking about here. Bad part is him running and -- that you can put it doesn't matter I'm. I'm Paul voted against the fiscal cliff deal Scott Brown could -- voted against the fiscal cliff deal whether he voted for it or not they would have passed. But at least you would have defended his constituents. -- -- -- stunning defending the indefensible. -- telling me that my taxes I'm losing four I got 4000 dollars less in my pocket and you're telling me no Jeff does want a tax increase on all Jeff. Well there was set to expire Jeff I was small business owner of the Pentagon thousands of all I want passes. Why did.

I am paying tens of thousands of dollars more in higher taxes Scott Brown voted. -- that not against that. Now on the federal assault weapons ban he voted for that not against that. On the start treaty he voted for that not against that. On Dodd-Frank he voted for that not against that. So why ask you. If you vote like a Democrat. If you talk like a Democrat. If you keep telling everybody you're an independent. What good are you to meet as a Republican. I am like crying about the tax issue -- that that he voted to raise taxes he did not just. Now to.
