You know Eric,” Sweeney Says, “That’s not true.” Sweeney defends his proposed tax cut. The two talk about the budget, discussing tax cuts and revenue projections.

We don’t agree ideologically on the things that he believes in [...] he protects millionaires, I’m for the midddle class, we disagree on a lot of things and we fight for those.”
