Mike Huckabee on Calls for Tax Hikes in Debt Talks

The unemployment rate in June went up to 9.2 percent and Mike Huckabee says he hopes that number wakes up the White House, "because [its] economic policies are failing."

He explains to Chris Cotter that “this is the same Obama who said five years ago that said we should not raise the debt ceiling

… he even said it was a sign we would lack leadership if we raised it.”

When asked about this weekend’s outcome on the debt talks, Huckabee answered, “I hope we get a change in the tax code.”
