Past the hour now a Supreme Court decision on health care could come at any moment literally.
But the nation's largest insurers not waiting for that call united health care announcing today it plans a key parts.
-- -- all in place regardless of how the court rules.
Wyoming senator John morass as chairman senate Republican policy committee good morning to you.
You were also weak position which makes you uniquely qualified to talk about this number of -- -- -- -- want to run through this quickly now.
United health care says it -- key parts of the law regardless of with the Supreme Court says including if your updates Tony says she can stand your parents' plan is a good idea.
Well I think and it's something that people of both sides of the aisle agreed on before this 2700 page.
Bill was signed -- to law that.
If -- kids that are in college in -- graduate school to let them stay on there parents' plan until the -- -- by 26 you'd expect them to be established.
I agreed with this two and a half three years ago -- this is why should do step by step.
Health Care Reform making positive steps in the right direction it.
Help patients get the care they need from the doctor that they.
That they choose and edit at a lower cost but the 2700 page law which and today the Supreme Court may make the ruling I think is unconstitutional.
I don't think Washington.
-- be able to come into your house okay that you let let -- -- let me get back to that point where you're you're you're making the case that Democrats and Republicans have agreed on a number of initiatives over the years why not do those.
And have a comprehensive health care law yet you know you're not gonna see coming out of Republicans -- this is repealed or if this is the Supreme Court throws it out a 2700 page substitute knock him why is that a good idea my sons -- daughters on my health insurance to other 26.
-- you're gonna go off and get their -- -- I mean eventually got to cut the court right why is it's a good idea -- your doctor.
Well to allow them to stay under your family plan of course -- a cost to that where the where the president I disagree is he said they can stay on for free.
They can't if you have a number of children that the family planned.
Is gonna cost different than than if you don't have a full.
Family planned but to allow them to stay on that family plan I think just helps the family until that.
Person out of school established in life and.
And -- okay -- united health care weighs in on that Illinois this is a democratic state.
Democratic legislature democratic governor and there have -- a hard time setting up these health exchanges that are ordered by this law.
Now why is that what's the rub here.
Well this is a very cumbersome law that the regulations come out they contradict each other.
-- of over half of the states in the country -- and even wanting to pursue this until they see what the what the Supreme Court says which is in -- while I've introduced legislation called the state health care choice act to give states flexibility in choice and whether they want -- actually even follow the law and we're talking about some.
Perhaps -- Reverberations.
Regardless of what the Supreme Court house as we sit here today what do you think -- Well I think they're gonna throw out part of -- I hope they throw out all of it New York Times recent survey last week.
Two thirds of Americans.
Want all or part of the health care law to be found unconstitutional.
Because the effect -- -- -- -- the whole long chapter.
What about then I think that you worked together in a step by step way to get something done.
Not this 2700 page law that is.
-- James -- -- you shouldn't pass laws so voluminous they cannot be read so incoherent they cannot be understood but that's what we have with his health care law.
It -- it tries to do too many things right win but -- government you're making decision if you get your wish is that chaos what is.
No I don't think it scales first -- -- it eliminates.
A number of the though onerous taxes that are part of this health care law.
I think this health care laws one that will bankrupt the country.
They'll get rid of so many of the mandates.
Right now he read it colleges that have provided insurance for their students.
Are dropping and this fall.
Why because what they've provided in the past was low cost insurance that actually applied to college students -- could get their insurance that way.
And under the health care law.
That doesn't meet the high bar that the government sets of government approved insurance and if you go to that higher level if we were rolled the unions they got waivers from that.
This colleges that we'd have to quadruple what we're charger -- students forget it we're not gonna offer insurance at all.
Senator thank you were on standby we could come today it may come in two weeks we'll find out -- -- it'll be this month they'll build out for sure John Burris was thanks thanks for -- are right.
