Top Republican lawmakers promising not to give up the fight and president Obama's health care law pledging to take action AS AP.
Here's house majority leader Eric Cantor on that.
And that's why when we return the week of July ninth -- scheduled a vote for total repeal of the Obama care bill.
To -- on Wednesday July 11.
And in that way we can clear the way towards trying to again and focus on accomplishing -- health care future.
There is premised upon patient centered care.
Lowering costs and affording better access -- that's on the house side.
Now -- inside Texas Republican John Cornyn chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee also on the Judiciary Committee sir good morning to you.
Good morning what you plan.
Well we need to repeal and replace this monstrosity of a law which now.
Contrary to what the president himself has said is attacks on the middle class.
We know that many of the promises the president made in order to sell this legislation -- proven not to be true.
Premium prices have not gone down they've gone up by 12100 dollars for a family of four.
We know that if you like which you have you can't keep it.
And so rather than have people forget about this legislation which is tremendously unpopular among the American people it is now front and center.
And I think will be the subject to the presidential campaigns and campaigns.
For the US senate because what we -- -- do regain the majority so we can repeal it.
And replace it you were one of the first to come out with a statement yesterday in the minutes right after the court rendered its decision and part of your statement said.
There will be plenty of time to debate the court's decision.
Is there are plenty of time.
Well I think it's a very complicated decision and I know people are still -- through it.
But ultimately bill.
We have to remember our constitution starts with three words we the people so no matter what the Supreme Court says no matter what.
Democratic majorities in congress -- previously said the powers really.
In the American people both through the elections and through their elected representatives next year to repeal this replace a small so.
The ball is clearly back in congress' lap.
And this will be front -- I said the presidential campaign and I can't imagine anything pres Obama won't want to talk about less.
Then his tax on the middle class.
At that point Andrea Saul works with that probably at a Boston she said this tweet out earlier.
Fundraising update for full repeal 42000.
Four point two million dollars raised online for Mitt Romney since the -- Supreme Court the United States' decision.
Does that mean.
Is that there.
Well you're called the energy that came from the grass -- known as the Tea Party back in 2010 and that resulted in a change in composition of congress rather dramatic collection as we all remember.
I think that means we're gonna see -- -- repeat in 2012.
What we saw in 2010.
If -- -- what motivated a lot of people who -- -- town hall meetings -- -- get really energized was obamacare there was other things but that was the primary cause.
So now that people have been reminded again about what -- what it -- intrusion this was on their individual choices how one affordable what is the sort of sleazy.
Deals that were made in order to get it passed the -- giving different senators to vote -- because of special deals like the cornhuskers kickback in the life.
I think all of that's coming back in the people's minds and will be very much part of the campaigns.
And I don't think that helps.
The president or incumbent Democrats who voted this to a pastors I'm so what Molly Pitcher in the -- -- kickback goes back to -- -- that was with senator Nelson.
Nebraska are fox polling on Wednesday afternoon came out this about sixteen hours before the decision.
Federal government forcing Americans to buy health insurance 60%.
Say it's a violation.
Of their individual rights.
What does that say.
Well that means that obamacare remains deeply unpopular.
And that's why I think we're gonna see a dramatic change in the composition of congress in the in the White House come November.
But it's also -- mandate I think for.
Us as the elected representatives of the people to go back and and fix this terribly flawed piece of legislation.
It may be constitutional.
According to five members of the Supreme Court.
But that doesn't mean it's the right policy that would mean we can afford it and those are I think the concerns of congress will be addressing first in the house.
In early July and then hopefully in the senator soon as we can get.
Get it on the agenda for a votes.
-- and thank you for your time today we'll see where we're not all the predictions proved true or not John Cornyn on the hill on the day after thank.
