-- -- -- I -- health care debate in the Supreme Court there -- a number of issues one is of course whether it's constitutional or not but the nerves of it as -- a good idea for the country.
Whether it's good for business and how are actually affects business people I'm curious.
How do you anticipate the health care action it'd be enacted in full because -- wouldn't -- business -- Not good for business it's probably -- good for the country.
It looks like it's not doing very well from the Obama side it seems the lawyer and a very very tough time in court.
And it'll be interesting to see what happens can always read a lot of times -- -- has come out of all the things you can't think you wanted to didn't win.
But it sounds like -- various judges and actually there were judges.
Soon to be opposed.
As a practical matter go out with all the uncertainty whether we can't -- not constitutional -- of the rolled out implementation of it.
Does it create.
Uncertainty in business -- that business or trying to figure out what to do wasting time were not making investment decisions or whatever.
Waited to see out of the top.
Nobody knows what to do nobody knows where we're going nobody knows what's happening with the country nobody knows what the replacement will be.
But they figure and you replacement is better.
Really a disaster for the country and it does leave greater uncertainty but the fact is that it was and didn't even if it got approved.
Because nobody can understand it thousands of pages of -- Nobody knows what -- supposed to be dealing.
And it's truly a -- looked at hopefully.
These drugs some of whom I know and -- very Smart people.
They're gonna have sent to say let's start all over again because -- good.
-- the act.
Cost effect -- a tremendous -- the fact.
Not only answer and the answer bitumen is a very big thing but a tremendous -- I have a friend who's got a business he's been in sort of a medium size and for a long time.
He thinks he's going to be close up is this because of Obama and advocates recruitment was up I can't afford.
And you have -- a lot.
A lot of people that another person I know who runs a major company is saying to cost of that company's going to be astronomical.
He doesn't know what it.
What does that mean that means we're gonna compete successfully against China and other countries because they don't have.
So I think it's going to be very catastrophic for the country if it gets approved now already billions and billions of dollars have been spent.
And it would be a tremendous shock to Obama I think in a tremendous negative and it didn't he devoted.
Almost his entire president do you think about it -- obamacare.
-- Obama care is very very bad for the country and very very bad that there is no question.
Putting the numbers that we here at 3040 million people uninsured don't have health insurance if they if they do need health -- they go to the hospital somebody picks up the freight.
So it's an infant in some -- like the health care law is 8 o'clock shift.
I'm trying to create more responsibility of people but also -- the -- it's not like.
Beckett who would be free without -- mean there is don't get custody of them in without healthcare.
Well that's true and frankly I'm a person that believes taking care people people -- to be taken care I often wonder what do they do get sick and have a problem what do they do.
And there are methods and you know they would allow.
Free enterprise where as an example if I want health -- from the company -- go outside of the -- at New York State.
That's done so that people -- New York have a monopoly this is -- he can't go you can't cross state lines.
That he will open this up to all day all -- to be all countries you know that had tremendous networks and tremendous values but.
If you opened it up in -- trim and -- be able to make.
Get better health care.
At a much reduced price.
I want to take care of my people and we do take care people but the Obama situation is going to be horrible for business but it won't be great health care which is very important.
If they would open it up so that many many companies really good company to qualify you have to have certain networks and all of that if you don't want.
You don't belief formed companies have to -- the bank.
But if they would open it up so that you could go beyond New York State if you happen.
But right now if your New York State I can't buy health -- -- from somebody outside of the.
I think that from so many good way I -- that so many business people in the insurance industry has a lock on that got a monopoly app on.
And has been and I don't see any sort of effort to have -- that historically.
It is industry is -- every.
Single lobbyist in Washington and and have a lock and discussed.
Frankly if you opened it up so that.
Fifty companies could compete with -- insurance numbers would come down and care would go up and you -- need government involvement.
It means that one thing alone.
It would be fine -- threes we don't be a lobbyist are a lot absolutely the -- everything's about the obvious.
-- -- -- -- -- mean to a large but in this case it's terrible and a basic and I mentioned that to people like you're -- -- heard that from other.
If you opened it up.
And even to other countries a minute England has great great powerful wealthy you know wonderful -- competent don't want to -- and let him do it.
You open it up to the world that China coming in -- for as far as I'm consent.
But you open it up so that people can go I'd like to get twenty -- -- when he.
He could know.
So it really terrible and it's all because that -- obvious an insurance company.
If the -- by the way you would need obamacare.
You wouldn't need you know I'm hearing that obamacare might -- a trillion dollars more and I even heard -- 1000000000008.
Then what we're paying right now in terms of the country.
That's catastrophic for the country to country can't afford it.
-- judges Supreme Court would do a tremendous service.
To be survival of the United States if they reject Obama it cannot afford this.
And that could care.
I'm -- -- believing in good care.
Number one it's not good care.
Number two for -- -- the 3040 million people who are uninsured.
If we take way.
The national health care what you thought about those things can be done and things can be done much better than Obama care.
But money would be saved.
So much you do just what I said.
Things could be done to take care of other people call forth I mean yeah I often say -- people.
And they don't care no medical care whatsoever you what do they do.
But they're really not going to be taking care of very well.
Under this Obama care system.
And things could be done because we've seen so much money if we just let people bid led all of these companies come in and -- it.
I would low as an example I have a very wonderful company have -- -- To be able -- glut when he different company.
What over a period of short period of time.
My numbers would go way way Dan.
And the country's numbers would be reduced appearance by comparison what we're talking about right now so I'm hearing it's going to cause a trillion dollars more.
I heard a -- -- any more we cannot afford it country can't afford it and it's lousy care.
-- and I serve but bring the others are very confident numbers and you think it's had a good idea to take care people.
But the way it's being executed with the health -- that don't like -- -- -- in the country.
Let's let's adopt its -- its ruins and it will destroy the country the country's in deep trouble now we -- sixteen trillion you know a little while it was 1516.
I see it at that time it up into the trillion.
You don't even have to look at where you just know it's gonna X it'll be 21 pretty.
It will be -- catastrophic if that gets approved by catastrophic and the health care will not -- If this is held unconstitutional.
By the end of two we expected -- -- the Supreme -- by the cute.
What impact -- that is happening on the election for President Obama or even into the Republican nominee whoever that might be.
Well I think would have a huge positive impact for the country.
I think that a lot of people a lot of companies that are like my friend that was going to close up shop.
If he has -- he's gonna probably end up -- a lot of companies and businesses they won't be subjected like closure.
And I think that for Obama obviously I don't think would be good had been a purple I somebody's trying to spin because it -- so bad yesterday.
To trying to say oh gee maybe it would be so petrol -- law.
No I think would be catastrophic -- A year and a half of his political of his presidency doing nothing but focusing on the community considering it -- -- hole because he's been focusing on this and he got an office I think would be very catastrophic for Obama but it would be more catastrophic for the country.
If -- under your your thinking that if if we improve the economy because it be heard in the economy if there's no national -- -- in some ways that might help on because guys in November if the numbers are trending up an -- If it -- -- I think the economy will start getting better much more rapidly.
And that would be actually very good -- great value that would be very good for Obama so.
-- he should say let it -- laws.
The justices if you listen to what they were saying yesterday we're really bringing -- good points.
And if they go that way which doesn't always happen.
It'll be a great thing for the country and you know what if it's a great thing for the country and if things start getting better -- the -- is now gone and a lot of other things happen in the economy get better.
Really great thing for Obama so in one cents.
Obama would benefit.
One of the things that hear from some wealthy people in the Democratic Party I'm wondering -- a lot of friends -- are wealthy people -- Democrats.
Isn't they they don't out like that they have been.
-- -- by the administration about quote paying their fair shares of actually.
I'm curious whether you know any good and I'm not -- asking -- what you know wealthy Democrats of they have soured on the president or whether embrace him as much as -- Well I think many people are not -- people obviously many people just look -- is poll numbers look at popularity even as popularity.
Many people soured on it.
I have many friends that are well not only Democrats have out of people will welcome that voted for you know they believed in change.
-- what we got what -- not much.
You know the word change was beautiful four years ago it's so great change but.
It wasn't it was good and I have many many friends and -- Democrats that well that will not be thinking you can.
-- can't even hear the name Obama.
Without getting so they feel very very -- disappointed.
-- he's not on where those are at -- at least.
Well I think that's the big determinant of what's gonna happen and I believe that Mitt Romney -- very good man will get the nomination.
I believe that gasoline prices will have a huge impact and if they don't start coming down.
I don't think it's possible for Obama to win the election personally I think it's going to be a bigger victory than most people would think the polls are very early right now and right now you don't actually -- and clearly even.
But I will tell you that if gasoline goes up to five dollars a gallon.
Which could could even got six hours ago yet OPEC laughing at how do that this country is how stupid we.
This airport is -- -- -- they think all of us.
We have our leaders and so stupid and -- -- -- the head of energy get up and say I want seven dollar dollar.
-- And coming.
I think that statement is one of the two sound -- argues if I were running for president as a Republican.
Number one would be the secretary of sound -- about seven and eight dollar.
The other would be Obama -- very strongly that the president has absolutely no power.
Over the price of gasoline price of oil which is totally false but totally tremendous.
Doing a number on OPEC like they wouldn't be there -- -- -- for a so the president has tremendous power over the price of energy.
But over the price of oil.
And what his sound -- that he has absolutely.
Nothing to do and no power over the price again.
It is a disaster for him when he made that statement of support after -- network and the other one is secretary and it totally to use.
You look at his administration curiously think of how others have done -- the vice president done Biden.
Although being vice president is none of which have very visible at K state Hillary Clinton accurately think about first.
Well I think -- and a very loyal person to be honest view I think that he's been good for president for the agenda that they -- and I think he's been a very very loyal person I respect him.
Hillary Clinton I think is a terrific woman and I'm a little biased because -- -- for years.
I live in New York she lives in New York on her and her husband for years and I really like about a lot and I think she really -- hard and I think she.
Again she's given an agenda.
Not all of our.
I think she really works I think she does a good job.
Like there do you think it out at the end of term -- -- arrogant -- -- I think I think you know assuming she's healthy which I hope you will be.
I think she probably runs after the next four years I would imagine.
-- I don't think it's because I get myself into trouble but I have independent got up I just like there.
I like -- and I -- -- her husband made on Monday at.
He's he's a really good guy and she's really good person and woman.
-- your nominee.
Governor Mitt Romney get around and -- here.
In a general election is being -- -- because.
The Al Obama administration has been seen in the and it got -- -- -- -- that I mean they make a big sports -- but it is different.
He's honestly he explained it so many different times -- is imminent it -- explanation do you think that's going to be persuasive and well it's a whole different area of the country it's a different income group a different state and there -- lots of different reasons and there are differences.
He's really explain it and I don't think having liked him and I'll be honest when he runs and he's been using you know he's been talking about this tour.
And he couldn't claimed it.
And -- I made a mistake.
And he chose not to do that and I think that was very Smart.
And -- and why he did -- the -- in that little section why he did and why it's different and how different from Obama.
And obamacare and I think that he explained it very well and obviously you know he's leading -- until March so.
It hasn't -- the effect that a lot of people hoped it would.
-- aim at honorable cause in Michigan and I think of administering and they Romney campaign I'm credits you with had an impact on the race there in Ohio I'm curious.
What your strategic thought -- -- -- governor Romney is in the nominees.
You know who we look forward to -- as a vice president would be ineffective at contribution to the ticket help win.
I think you have a number of Peabody Chris Christie is a terrific guys -- good friend of -- I think senator rubio would be very good Florida's very important -- total swing state and I really think you could possibly -- in Florida anyway because they're not exactly happy with -- -- -- -- -- -- I think senator rubio would be very good.
I hear a lot about Portman -- don't know senator Portman he's very very talented and good man but I don't know at all.
Of course is number one to Donald Trump and it.
-- -- And I think he can do much better but I wouldn't it would take it.
-- things but I think that.
You know people like me because I like to.
-- -- nobody.
-- OPEC is lifting -- fuel is going to find out six dollars.
I was in Chicago the -- -- numbers -- I'm driving back to the airport and look at it -- where.
It's close to five dollars in Chicago to -- -- -- which by the way the highest place in the whole nation.
But I'm looking at these numbers and it almost surreal.
And -- do it like it I tell people and I -- -- of predictions we go into.
We go into these countries.
-- fight a war we spent trillions of dollars our soldiers are.
Killed and hurt so badly and we leave when we get that we get nothing I said in Iraq what are we keep the oil.
I said with Qaddafi what are we keep the oil.
We're gonna and then they ask for help the rebels let me tell you the rebels -- -- the rebels are -- to talk to anymore we spend billions of dollars on the rebels.
Getting rid of -- We could head to the rebels when they were being routed listen we're gonna help you we -- fifty -- any oil.
Analyst at you know they would have done would resign.
So when people here it is.
-- I know people like you and I feel like I tell you who -- move a lot people really like.
Your daughter -- -- -- -- that -- -- -- I didn't know coming in here today at the camera up and as a -- -- -- -- -- competition for me to be with you.
Is it a -- has -- vehicle line coming out ready where tonight as coming up tonight.
-- -- Lord & Taylor and Macy's and Nordstrom's and she's still got -- very she's fabulous.
She is very Philanthropic she gets so much you money away.
From running away and she is a great person she's a nice -- If I'm gonna watch it mean.
And I -- actually -- about our excuse they would choose him here early -- little -- -- -- competent mean -- she's been involved in your business in the development side but also it can branch off into their own thing.
She isn't -- it's sort of like sidelight but it does very well and people respect her I guess they got to really -- -- through the apprentice.
Which he does such a good job and they really do respect to -- -- and they like -- got great take got a great design sense.
And she helped me out just marches throughout country club 800 acres right smack in the middle of Miami and we're planning something that's going to be spectacular there really spectacular and she is a great sense of design which I'm very happy.
Jane I was at governor Romney for one word description of different name he threw out while he threw out -- Donald Trump -- he it.
I think that's I don't know that's coming to my way I don't think it was and pretty sure it was LA outlet let's get that -- Well I think it's an honor I think you meant that in a positive way and and again I'm Stan.
I think he's a terrific man I don't think he's quite understood to be honest I think that people don't understand -- -- He's an excellent guy.
Solid as a rock.
And that's what this country mean she's got great business and site and and I really don't think they get the true picture.
Rob and I think his wife and it's a fabulous -- Keeping atomic speaker Gingrich and make it better or -- -- now over it's now time to say let us unite behind somebody that somebody has to be Mitt Romney.
And you know I've been saying and you show for my -- what's going on because you know keep in the Republicans in the press -- But the truth is it's now time.
-- and a lot of wealth and a lot of money in spending on fighting each other.
That money has to be fought and spent on fighting Obama and it's got to be done so it's now time.
It's over now it's what -- yesterday essentially -- sort of like.
Giving up -- campaign.
Losing a lot of people a lot of things happening.
Santorum you know or -- you really say where's -- going from.
Why doesn't -- I guess who stays and because of foreign aliens but immediately and vice president -- -- well I mean look what happened I think that.
The people -- mentioned it would be wonderful that the problem I have with Santorum is you can't lose an election.
In state of Pennsylvania by the largest number ever in the modern -- -- it.
Eighteen -- nineteen points and say OK I just -- In my honey can -- say what I'll say it's an island.
And is there any bailout number of it you know what.
You don't get rewarded -- Just don't get rewarded for not running for the senate with people that -- you the best and -- local area where they really knew him the best you got clobbered.
You can't run.
In the state of Pennsylvania for the United States and lose by the largest margin in the history of the modern day and it.
And then say oh you know I analysts I'm gonna run for president I don't think it should be you know units -- -- -- rewarded for losing.
So I look at that and I say I'd rather have Chris Christie I'd rather have -- Rather have may be Portman who like to hear great things about.
But a lot of choices but he's got to be rewarded for victory for logs.
-- and I thank him.
