VAN SUSTEREN: What besides the sort of the usual the you know, the tax program, extending the Bush tax cuts that I know the Republican Party want, what is it that you could do to turn it around?

PENCE: Yes, look, the enemy of our prosperity is uncertainty. … the greatest uncertainty right now is and you just heard you heard the Vice President again kind of defend it in passing, their tax cuts their tax increases on the rich is this administration actually thinks that it would be a good idea to allow a tax increase on job creators on January 1st, 2011. You know, higher taxes never got anybody hired.
