Those Supreme Court rules and obamacare tomorrow which is great news especially for wax like me who every day had to relentlessly cover something no one bothered to read including its authors before they try to pull the wool over America's eyes and changes in -- Europe.
Not so fast sunshine it was a long tough road for me.
And of anything I hope obamacare covers OP TE ST.
Or obamacare post traumatic stress disorder I've got -- it's given -- irrational might back that resembles the head of Nancy Pelosi.
If only there was a montage that reminds us how we got here may be with some cheesy music.
We've got -- health care system that only works if you're healthy and well yeah.
Airport got to make real progress this time.
We've got a -- -- 45 million.
Fellow citizens have no health insurance this simply cannot continue -- -- -- and Obama do solemnly swear.
We have to pass the bill so that you can.
Find out what is in it.
You said distilled those death panels with the commission it's it's a bureaucracies to bureaucrats.
I would ration care.
And -- got 88 new government program.
We don't see tens of thousands of new federal workers they have free single person in America who have -- -- We're gonna return -- responsibility and authority to the -- -- dozens.
Of government programs.
And that will begin with a complete repeal of obamacare.
I'm confident that the Supreme Court.
-- not take we'll would be an unprecedented.
Step you have to have.
The mandate in order for this to work if obamacare is not deemed constitutional -- the first three and a half years this president's term.
We'll have been wasted on something that has not -- the American people we await the Supreme Court decision as does everything.
But while we do we.
Continue to implement the law.
So -- -- that was a three and a half years what was what was the high point for -- so I honestly I think the high point was the the little sound -- that the town halls and tea -- -- that was really where the Tea Party was born.
On the heels of not only -- he has some stimulus but also the majority of of the Tea Party gatherings were about the -- on health care what once.
That started thinking what happened since then they get -- -- the house versions in 2010 with Republican eighty people flips because of because the Tea Party look that's the most important part -- We got seventeen hours left -- seventeen hours man is its well -- -- but erases -- good point it it created a cascade.
Of actual hoping change.
That President Obama didn't expect to happen.
What do you see this well I mean it I just don't question that people -- that deposition got out in front of Obama this and the administration and they won the message game and the message game.
Has set a precedent for making obamacare negative in the country people who know what it is it also -- -- I grew -- brought to keep people in.
And it you know I'm right to give them more -- more destructive forces in American politics in years unlike the Occupy Wall Street yes I think they're I think they're -- keep people.
Yet of those Tea Party guys try to bomb -- bridge and know -- -- Along -- my Wall Street Andrea that he can talk about -- that you know.
That the law was made to look bad but wasn't that.
Wasn't that that the administration's fault because they didn't -- they were prepared they didn't read it and everybody started to see the negative consequences.
They didn't read it and they didn't approach it the right way and I don't buy it that they did a poor job selling it they actually did.
No job selling it remember they passed it and it was so radioactive you haven't heard Democrats talk about it at all.
And then they started sit through some political goodies in -- like HHS contraception mandate which they thought would help them when the women vote before that.
You have heard not a peep from Democrats on this -- and I think there have been a lot of low points not high points on low points premiums have gone up 9%.
CBO is said.
The cost of health -- gonna go up into thirds and small businesses.
An attempt to do with the south -- -- has been taking effect.
Because HHS secretary Sebelius said if insurers you raise your premiums above 10% were gonna come in an audit you -- which means a lot of political -- have been going out and if it hasn't unaffected how can you also say that 49 people -- have insurance tomorrow if -- court rules on well yeah there's.
Something I didn't deserve to win it there's some people who have had it taken advantage is there a certain parts of the opening connection -- and I'm more.
I'm wanna go -- and I I have insurance because of this.
And there are a number of people who are young people were stayed on their parents.
Insurance policy because of this what do what do having elevenths I don't understand how do you have insurance because of this because -- -- get insurance for that preexisting condition which was -- -- open heart surgery.
I couldn't get insurance from anybody.
Then Maryland it was a freshman to -- -- informant exchange along the terms obamacare and I got to -- so.
So want to just do that com want to just make healthcare -- -- -- crossed state lines -- portable cross state lines and then.
If I wanted it in new York and couldn't get in New York but he did in Maryland I go to Maryland and say guess what happened pretty shown in every insurer New York would offer -- Pre existing condition it maybe that -- Merrill would not wanna be inundated with with a whole lot of people coming in because they have to offer them alternatives and.
The we have we have rarely have -- -- a lot of city Bob's life correct all of your letters to Merrill at one -- -- and I know that -- this bill is an outrage because it doesn't cover Jasper.
Your dog but how do you how should the administration -- -- you can't mention just right and I'm holding my but I can.
Two beautiful little by the way.
What about the administration's response to this how would they if you were there how would you know manage their posture.
A set tonight monster for several months have probably been working on their statements -- that they can be the first out of the gates -- -- -- their reaction I think that's a mistake I think they should wait.
Digest -- think about a little bit and look at their statement -- think they only need one thing immediately -- Such -- but President Bush to when he lost have been the Supreme Court on ability decision it was an anti terrorism -- type of thing.
When he set went to the Rose Garden he said he strongly disagree with the court's decision.
But I will abide by it and then you you went on I think tomorrow President Obama should be com.
Measured positive in the DeWitt however it turns out and not try to rub if he wins.
Not try to rub his opponents' noses in it because it is so -- popular across the board and the uncertainty that will exist.
Between now and the end of the year actually affects the economy worse than that -- positive it would be better but -- -- brother.
But it is said that they're not -- rumors that vets celebrate if they lose this thing I mean they wouldn't think anything -- and I ended up there -- eight.
That -- bigger doesn't represent the Republican Party about how well -- from a by -- eighty -- -- to pressure them -- a lot of that is restricted how to deal -- -- don't people realize in 2009 when we got Obama -- that passed because we -- -- Democrat house and Democrats and Democrat in the White House.
Do you do that anymore so the house -- than people realize that.
Not maybe Democrats are represented Condit in fact they don't and maybe a Republican led the nation that is another -- party has a caucus -- a press conference that don't you ask the question what would you how do we and they would I don't know Nancy we told -- it was it was unconstitutional.
Let's get back to the constitution let's take a look at.
I was -- -- -- -- you sound -- that was not an hour and an armada is that I like the most is when none speaker Pelosi said when she was asked.
Are you worried about that this bill wouldn't be constitutional is that are you serious you are used it was such to -- -- well they work quite serious and now everybody is waiting well.
Martha I I think apologizes Obama's got the ball -- gritty loses tomorrow I don't think he's gonna by the way maybe -- turn that -- It -- it was okay now.
You all have that done this is Supreme Court has gone along Republican lines they'd give me they've done away with health care so that you could not the financial gonna have to justify why he blew the capital had when he was elected -- -- -- -- -- he didn't -- -- -- on institutional disaster I think it mandates going down.
I think it will straight down some of the provisions and we don't know or plan to speculate getting yanked its notices it about -- it but -- you think about what could be left you could strike down the individual mandate but the employer mandate.
Could still be left which still poses a problem -- for businesses.
And this will also create a lobbying feeding it feeding frenzy thing about this.
The medical devices are gonna want their taxes repeal.
Farmers are -- want a lot of their money back you're to have employers still facing stiff penalties.
Lobbyists are going to be attacking why do we go right to the bottom line detected an individual -- you kill the sold they'll pick -- I viewer -- a lot of flip flop on that he's I think I -- -- who -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- How to distribute our creek creek as preconditions Bob because he'll bankrupt the insurance industry all -- -- -- -- -- You think it would be a shame I think could be a trap I think that that have -- millions of sick people there including circuit operation but it leaving that aside.
If I think revealed to a President Obama a flip flop again he wasn't for the mandate -- when he ran for president -- -- 2009 and the politics got tough.
Then I think tomorrow because they've made its arguments on the Supreme Court that will all fail that if they lives on that -- on that part that they'll say now wet.
We can live with this week and mark with this because they'll wanna preserve whatever victory you can our ideas and give us your river was Republicans introduced to mandate backed off -- -- what government can tell you to do.
Is on deck tomorrow that's we will ultimately find out Greg what government can tell you can't do and what they can't you tell the -- me don't of the insurance that they can -- are actually -- I've got to --
