-- now in our analysis of the obamacare Supreme Court decision and Republican presidential race with us -- -- -- percentage in the big city this evening.
Luring -- spelled out that he did justices of the Supreme Court already know.
What they're gonna do at this point in time on Friday they they met today among the talked among themselves very secret.
Right and they said look this is what we feel about obamacare -- thirty Null and now they have to write it off and after they write it up to a big debate again they can change your -- but.
Pretty much what's gonna happen is locked down.
Almost everybody needs heard Karl Rove says not gonna survive the Supreme Court it's you know it's gonna be tossed how do you see it.
I think Justice Kennedy as you've pointed out there earlier as -- pivot vote here and as such he could come down on the question of liberty.
And strike it down or he could say that this is a essentially besides -- -- not Brazilian authority -- -- he's gonna I don't know I mean I.
I hear -- -- that -- have a pretty good instincts I mean to jump ball right now jump ball.
Okay I'm not gonna get -- -- let's assume it goes down.
Probably -- a situation is that President Obama going into the campaign going into the convention to disaster for fifty million Americans who aren't gonna know what can health care they're gonna have that's number one they can always move to Belgium.
You know I don't know -- -- -- and now I don't these kids the it's not America it's just not American witness it's and we we are in Sweden.
Just -- never going to be but anyway.
Put that aside because I do believe there has to be Health Care Reform -- wanna do in the private marketplace.
But pres Obama loses his signature issue said he does -- he's got to zoom into the campaign.
How to how that was her.
I think it's really gonna depend on a larger economy.
Not on this single issue really easily don't think it's going to be a major issue it isn't an issue because.
The president tried Health Care Reform within the context of -- for profit system that's opinion.
For profit health care I don't.
But he tried that if it goes down.
I think that it would certainly be a political defeat however the election's going to deter be determined by the overall economy.
We have some problems with structural unemployment right now.
And unless -- how much cancer -- Intrude on the overall economy.
I think -- there's no question that there.
How different is -- and give our vacation this summer and going to be driving around that -- bucks a gallon and me you know they're gonna.
Who -- everything get a it has an impact -- me tell you with about the unemployment.
If you if you would keep having unemployment above 8% now and a lot of it some people have been out of work for more than forty weeks.
That kind of structural unemployment is going to stop people from being able to do anything else but -- on their -- Economic experience and they may not vote -- Obama's problem is that people don't vote it's not they're gonna switch their vote on I think a lot of independents are gonna switch their vote I think Catholics -- wish to vote because of all of this stuff we had cardinal don't want nominees still teed off they're gonna -- temperatures gonna -- the Obama administration.
So lot of things that the President Obama -- look.
You don't have been pretty fair to -- Obama.
But if I'm looking at from a logistical standpoint now he's got all kinds of problems with very few strengths.
He's -- very and it's particularly if his signature issue obamacare goes down.
What's -- gonna point to -- freezing for four years and he's done one.
If -- goes down 59 people out healthier people who are who who I noticed bill.
The don't have flies but it cover people with preexisting conditions and covered you younger people -- -- -- and her parents' policy.
Put cap it it took off the caps on a kind of money that could be paid -- -- has a very serious health problem.
Health care is going to be an enduring issue in this country but whether or not present Obama gets re election.
Reelected I believe it's going to be directly connected to whether we get America back to work or not.
And when more than eight hours -- -- today disease only got a five months -- -- -- your state Ohio is going to be one of the big battleground status there's no question about it people -- -- off all the polls show.
That -- believe.
That he's not doing a good job -- if you're at or gas prices -- asking if this is going to be a tight race for President Obama you -- it is it's this race could go either way however.
-- watching unemployment numbers because that's going to tell you.
Whether or not the president will be able to mobilize enough people to go and vote for him to keep an -- to keep progress going otherwise we're looking at.
A race that you know.
It's gonna be nail biter and whoever -- was examining -- close a matter what happens.
And I think the Republicans are gonna have to define for the nation what they will do and health care area.
To make things that -- -- we haven't seen that happen okay that's not enough to simply -- -- for a single Payer I think sooner or later.
This country's gonna move -- single -- it's good for business it's good for individuals we have to have preventive health care of people taking more responsibility.
But look at how this America's gonna -- a -- and we got to do tort reform we gotta do insurance competing across state lines first.
Congressman good to see thanks very much or -- -- great to be --
