O'Reilly to Valerie Jarrett: Congress Will Not Pass Military Cuts
Bill O’Reilly sat down with White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett during tonight’s O’Reilly Factor.
He asked her if ObamaCare is driving down the president’s poll numbers.
Jarrett said, “We’re going to have a year of action. He’s going to be doing a lot of things that don’t necessarily involve Congress.”
Moving on to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s plan to cut the U.S. Army to pre-World War II levels, O’Reilly blasted the White House for not making the military stronger.
Jarrett responded, “Not that long ago you were telling us how we needed to get our fiscal house in order and tighten our belts, and that requires a lot of sacrifices. But we’re not sacrificing the security of our country. I can promise you that.”
“I don’t think you’re going to get it through Congress anyway,” O’Reilly said.
The Factor host brought up the school voucher program, which would allow parents to send their children to private or religious schools. “I just wish you would consider it,” he said.
Jarrett stressed that it’s important to make sure all children succeed in public school system.
In the full interview, above, O’Reilly and Jarrett spoke about the White House initiative called “My Brother’s Keeper,” which helps young at risk boys to succeed.
