oklahoma national guard said it will not mandate the vaccine. coronavirus inflation and trade might be some of the topics we will hear from president biden's with xi jinping monday night. jon: lucas, since, thank you. national republican congressional committee chair and minnesota republican congressman joins us now, he's a member of the house committee on financial services. as a congressman from are you hearing inflation complaints from people in your district? >> i am thanks for having me. have to say it, president biden and the socialist democrats controlling congress are completely incompetent. big government spending policies are driving the inflation we haven't seen and fekete, not since president jimmy carter have we seen it this bad. their answer is to double down and do $4.5 trillion spending
bill. it really is incompetent hurting struggling americans all over america. jon: as you know, there are a great number of people on the democratic side say we have to have that spending bill, would got to have this, the big multitrillion dollar spending. >> let's face it, they learn solutely nothing from the elections in virginia and across the country, a little less than two weeks ago, voters told them they want less spending, less government and what their answer is to double down on the get big government spending spree they want to go on. by the way, don't expect vulnerable democrats, democrat at risk of losing their election year from now, don't expect any of them to stand up to nancy pelosi because they proven to us time and time again they are nothing more than formats for the speaker. jon: in your position, your partly responsible for trying to
get more republicans elected, is the glen youngkin strategy something you're going to take a look at, encouraging republican personal candidates to ambulate? >> voters are smart across this country as they showed us a little less than two weeks ago. they understand these democrats are completely out of touch with main street usa. they will hold them accountable. we understand this is not just going to happen because we say it's going to happen. it's going to be a dogfight and we will have to run hard for the next year but we will hold them accountable and make sure the voters know the democrats policies, their incompetence are responsible for higher prices and lower, smaller paychecks, more expensive everything. they are responsible for the open border that wasn't a problem 11 months ago. we have a crime wave, national
crime wave, a direct result of not only their rhetoric but their insane the front police policies. voters will hold them accountable a year from now. jon: there's also a report that taxes are going to go up, middle class under the build back better plan. twenty to 30% of middle income households out of the plan would pay more in 2022, low and middle class households would pay roughly $100 more on average while 66% of people making over $1 million to 16000 -- tax cut in 70% in between i've hundred thousand intimately 8000, almost $500 tax cut. that's a little strange, isn't it? >> why should we be surprised the hypocrisy of the left? they caught the bill back better plan, building back better for their elites they take care of
whether the intellectual elites they represent or the political elites in this country. for the rest of us, it should be called the bill back broke pan. these guys talk about raising taxes on those who can afford the most when what they are doing is there policies are hitting every middle-class american where it hurts. in the pocketbook and it's affecting their kitchen table, their mortgages, it's affecting everything we do and voters are smart, they will hold them accountable in the end. jon: there are people who think all of this is a good thing. bloomberg news tweeted today inflation might not be a bad thing saying suddenly americans can't spend like they used to. store shelves are empty, it could take months to kind of car, refrigerator or sofa. if this continues, we may need to -- like the europeans, that actually might not be a bad thing.
how do you respond to that? >> it is a bad thing. this is the problem with the left, they don't celebrate american exceptionalism, they don't celebrate the fact that you and i, we can self determine and be the best we want to be or not without our government standing in the way. they prefer to have us emulate places like perhaps europe. what about venezuela, cuba? they think those are a better way for americans future. republicans do not, this is where the democrat party is today. that's why year from now we will have a new republican majority in the u.s. house of representatives. jon: kevin mccarthy said much the same thing, let me play a clip from him, house republican leader. >> if you are a democrat, president biden won by 16 points, that's a competitive race next year. are you going to bring president biden in to defend you? you want to bring the vice
president, terry mcauliffe did in the book what happened to him. jon: is that the playbook for the congressional elections to come? >> we've expanded our targeted racist 270, we look at it this way, this political environment, they are doubling down on these insane policies and driving inflation and driving crime from opening up the border, every democrat in the seat joe biden might have one by ten points or maybe even a little more is audible, take two seats in virginia with a clipped 12.5 points more than 14 points in a year, that was the last governors race, those democrat representatives and all the others, they've got a choice to make over thanksgiving. you got to go home and think about one, are you going to retire or stick around and explore? jon: a fascinating 2022. national republican congressional committee chair, congressman, thanks.

>> they acknowledge real problem, the line artist transitory issues, not just going to be long-term but gas prices an example of this administration on one hand we cancel the keystone pipeline and learned last week they were reviewing and possibly going to cancel another pipeline in michigan when biden's asked about gas prices they say we are monitoring that closely and there's not a lot we can do, basically it's up to the saudi's to pump more oil. the administration begged them, they are not going to do it so you've got mixed messaging from an incoherent policy from the a ministration on gas prices and they are faking opec to pump gas and lower prices, that's not something that's going to go with the american people so until they can handle on this issue in a concrete way that delivers results, they will continue to suffer politically. jon: your real clear politics
average of the presidential approval pool, we want to put that up on the screen right now. november 1 through the 11th, 42.4% of voters approve of a job that joe biden is doing. 52.2% disapprove. how does a president turner around? >> that's a good question, we don't know. he's got a couple of issues. number one if you look at the numbers, three poles have come out since the infrastructure bill passed. democrats were basically saying we can just get these bills passed, that will improve our political situation. two of the three poles released from of the presence job has gone down, not up so it remains an open question whether it will improve. i think the reason is, you look at these intangibles, is the president honest, to be a strong leader, is he competent? on all those questions, he
suffered among republicans but particularly among independent so there's a large section that has lost trust in joe biden and his administration's ability to handle these crisis that's one thing he promised during the campaign, he's going to restore normalcy from the chaos, they have this experience, all of these plans and it hasn't worked out that way. once the trust is gone, it is tough to recover so it will be an uphill battle for the president to get his approval ratings back near 50% which is where the democrats need them for next year's midterms. jon: as you well know, he when the presidential election among independent. republicans vote for hawkins, democrats vote for democrats. independents are where you went. in the latest polls of independence when asked whether the president has done better or worse than expected, 44% say
he's done worse than they thought he would do. 6% better and that's a usa today poll. that is not a good number if you want to retain the white house. >> that is a shocking number in the sense that half of independent think he's doing worse job than they thought he would do when he took office. other metrics, is the honest? this was shocking as well, this was joe biden, one of the cornerstones of his campaign, he's a working-class guy. jesse feel for people like you? he's lost ground with independent, 35. reporter: 40-point since he took office and so he's got to recover that number among the working-class voters which is where democrats suffer a couple weeks ago in new jersey and elsewhere around the country. jon: founder or cofounder of real clear politics. thank you. >> thanks. jon: britney spears enjoying her first we can free from her
