The Republicans are the adults, the media is the needy brat, and the Democrats are the stepparents who will do anything to keep the peace. (6:00)

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

THE NEW CONGRESS HAS ARRIVED IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. IN THE

REPUBLICANS CAMPAIGN RHETORIC IS

ANYTHING TO GO BY IT'S GOING TO

BE A BUMPY RIDE.

>> WE'VE COME TO TAKE THE

GOVERNMENT BACK.

>> SOMEBODY HAS TO GO TO

WASHINGTON AND KNOCK THE HELL

OUT OF THE PLACE.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: CAN YOU TELL ME WHERE

I CAN GET MY I.D. BADGE?

THANKS A LOT.

NOW THAT THE VOTERS HAVE OPENED

APE REPUBLIC-CAN OF WHOP ASS IN

WASHINGTON ARE THESE LOAD

BEARING WALLS BECAUSE THEY ARE

COMING DOWN.

>> WE HAVE NEED TO HAVE AN ADULT

CONVERSATION ABOUT GETTING RID

OF DEBT.

>> I'M READY TO HAVE AN ADULT

CONVERSATION.

>> THIS IS GETTING US TOWARD THE

ADULT STAGE OF CONVERSATION.

THIS IS TIME FOR US AS AMERICANS

TO HAVE AN ADULT CONVERSATION

WITH EACH OTHER ABOUT THE

SERIOUS CHALLENGES OUR COUNTRY

FACES.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: THE (bleep) GUY HAD

AN ACT.

[LAUGHTER]

I SEE IT'S ONLY NOVEMBER BUT THE

2011 TALKING POINTS ARE OUT WITH

ONE UTTERLY CONTRIVED PHRASE.

THE ANGRY PITCHFORK WIELDING

REPUBLICANS HAVE TRANSFORMED TO

DIPLOMATS.

SOME BACK AND FORTH CONVERSATION

NOT A BAD THING.

YOU BROUGHT IT UP REPUBLICANS

START.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

>> WE CAN'T RAISE TAXES IN THE

MIDDLE OF A RECESSION.

>> CAP AND TAX THAT'S A TAX ON

ENERGY.

THAT'S OFF THE TABLE.

>> I WANT TO MAKE SURE THIS

HEALTH CARE BILL NEVER EVER EVER

IS IMPLEMENTED.

I REFUSE TO COMPROMISE ON THE

RULE OF LAW.

I REFUSE TO GRANT AM NESTCY.

>> NO COMPROMISE ON ENDING THE

ERA OF RUNAWAY SPENDING.

>> Jon: BY ADULT CONVERSATION

YOU MEAN THE KIND OF

CONVERSATION WHERE THE ADULT

SAYS NO!

BECAUSE I SAID SO.

[LAUGHTER]

WAIT, IT'S LIKE THE ADULT

CONVERSATION WITH ADULTS TALKING

TO CHILDREN.

BUT IF THE REPUBLICANS REPUBLICANS ARE T

ADULTS, WHO ARE THE CHILDREN,

THE ONES NOT PARTICULARLY

INTERESTED IN HEARING THE

REASONS.

YES OR NO, CAN I BORROW THE CAR?

YES OR NO?

>> LIKE SO MANY COMING INTO

OFFICE YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT

CUTTING SPENDS.

I WANT TO TICK THROUGH ITEMS AND

GET A YES OR NO.

WOULD YOU MAKE CUTS IN SOCIAL

SECURITY?

I THINK WE HAVE A SOCIAL

SECURITY SYSTEM THAT IS BROKEN

TO THE FUTURE AND WE NEED TO SIT

DOWN AT THE TABLE AND HAVE ADULT

CONVERSATIONS AND FIGURE OUT HOW

IT CAN BECOME VIABLE.

>> IS THAT A YES THAT COULD YOU

CONSIDER CUTS TO SOCIAL SECURITY

IN SOME WAY, SHAPE OR FORM.

>> IF IT WAS A SIMPLE ANSWER WE

WOULD HAVE SOLUTIONS BEFORE

THIS.

>> Jon: THAT CONGRESSWOMAN IS

SUCH A PATIENT MOM.

SORRY, HONEY YOU JUST (bleep)

CAN'T.

I JUST NEED A YES OR NO ANSWER.

>> YOU'VE BEEN ASKED OVER AND

OVER WHERE YOU WANT THE CUT AND

WHAT YOU'VE SAID ACROSS THE

BOARD S. THAT CORRECT?

>> EVERYWHERE.

HERE IS WHAT MYSTIFIES ME.

YOU ARE A DUR AND 50% OF YOUR

PRACTICE CAME CAME FROM MEDICARE

AND MEDICAID, GOVERNMENT FEDERAL

REIMBURSEMENTS TO YOU FOR

PRACTICING MEDICINE, CORRECT?

>> RIGHT.

>> I HAVE TO READ THIS RIGHT

HERE, THE ONE PLACE YOU DON'T

WANT TO THE CUT IS DOCTOR

REIMBURSEMENT RATES?

>> Jon: THAT'S THE MEAT AND

POTATOES LITIGATING, CALLING THE

SENATOR'S PROFESSIONAL

EXPERIENCE TO DRAW HIM OUT ON A

SPECIFIC APPROACH.

>> WHEN I STARTED 93 FEES ARE 50

TP-BGT OF WHAT THEY WERE IN

1993.

SO THEY ALREADY HAVE BEEN CUT BY

50%.

WHAT YOU HAVE TO PICK SURE IS

YOU WANT TO CUT THEM BY 40%

MORE, FINE, GO AHEAD BUT THERE

MAY NOT BE ANY DOCTORS LEFT

SEEING MEDICARE PATIENTS.

>> Jon: STRONG DEFENSE WITH A

TOUCH OF SLIPPERY SLOPE.

A LITTLE HYPER BOLLIC BUT ON

POINT.

PERHAPS WE CAN GET IT DONE ON AN

ADULT LEVEL.

>> SENATOR, DOCTOR, WHAT WAS

YOUR PEAK INCOME OVER THE LAST

DECADE?

WHAT IS THE MOST YOU EARNED IN

ONE YEAR.

>> Jon: THIS IS WHERE THE

RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD?

WE'VE ARRIVED AT THE RUBICON.

EITHER WE'LL CONTINUE WITH AN

ADULT CONVERSATION ABOUT OUR

NATION'S BUDGET OR --

>> IF YOU WANT TO MAKE THIS

ABOUT ME PERSONALLY YOU ARE NOT

GOING TO HAVE AN INTELLIGENT

DISCUSSION.

IF YOU WANT TO MAKE THIS

ABOUT -- DO I WANT TO GO INTO

YOUR PERSONAL PAST AND TALK

ABOUT YOUR PAST ON THIS PROGRAM?

I DON'T THINK SO.

>> SENATOR --

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: SO WE CAN TALK ABOUT

THIS IN AN ADULT WAY, THE WAY I

WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT.

MY GROUND RULES OR I CAN REMIND

EVERYONE YOU USED TO (bleep)

HOOKERS.

IT'S UP TO YOU.

IT'S YOUR CHOICE.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: REPUBLICANS ARE THE

ADULTS.

>> WHAT IF WE MOVED IT UP TO $1

MILLION.

EVERYONE BELOW $1 MILLION WILL

GET A TAX CUT.

THE MILLIONAIRES AND

BILLIONAIRES WON'T.

>> I PROPOSE WE EXTEND THE TAX

CUTS FOR TWO YEARS.

>> I'M WILLING TO COMPROMISE ON

EXTENDING THE INCOME TAX CUTS

FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS.

>> IT WOULD BE A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY FOR THE WHITE HOUSE

TO REACH OUT TO THE BUSINESS

COMMUNITY AND SAY, WE DON'T HAVE

ALL THE ANSWERS.

LET'S WORK WITH YOU ON WHAT THE

TAX CUTS OUGHT TO LOOK LIKE.

>> Jon: THE DEMOCRATS ARE THE

STEP PARENTS, THE ONES WHO WILL

DO ANYTHING TO KEEP THE PEACE

AND ANYTHING TO GET YOU TO JUST

LOVE THEM.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: DO YOU LIKE THE

COMPUTER THOUGH?
