Yeah and they just did -- the Republican led house voting to -- national health care law.
But the repeal is -- in the democratic controlled senate so this today is vote really pack any Contra present Michelle Bachmann spots in the very first bill to repeal Obama.
Here she joins us nice to see you good to see you Greta OK so what he did -- today's about.
Well we got a big showcase of what's about to come this fall because of the holding -- the house.
Having Romney plus fifty in the senate this was the appetizer the -- this shows that we actually will do it for putting muscle behind our words and I'm really excited it was a fantastic day.
It was of five college -- -- to visit and it was it it's an appetizer this is an appetizer a foretaste of what's gonna come this fall.
And we had a bipartisan but we had five Democrats vote with us not one Republican voted the other way this I'm really.
I'm but when -- when that law was first passed I think you got thirty and they.
34 Democrats voted the Republicans -- a little bit of -- -- the composition of the house has changed but yet 34 when you passed that that they only got five.
That explains it because a lot of a lot of people have lost a lot of elections in between and a lot more people are gonna lose a lot more elections after this fall's vote.
People are riled up they've had -- they're scared to death they recognize.
That there's attacks and again coming our way and they know we can do better we know we can better we have so many positive plans to bring down the price of health care.
We can't wait to do what I think all of us have plans up on our web site.
We have so much that we can do that's we can't wait to do is just unleash at all after this fall's election.
As you might imagine Democrats are also declared victory today it sends a capitals look -- get a coroner when declares victory at the end of the day has lost like.
All got -- they are enamored I tell you what's happening out -- I get righted so much email from both Republicans and Democrats.
And I start to get fund raising notes from Democrats saying yeah we really need your helps -- is really revving up the base to that they can do that's basically they're using in there lost.
As a way to -- get more money today.
We'll -- I'll tell you who's revved up that's from the people in the middle of the independents as well as the people who are on the right there revved up because they know.
They're the ones you're paying all -- -- checks to seniors are figuring out it's 200 billion in new -- Medicare taxes for seniors.
Plus they know -- 575.
Billion is being pulled from Medicare.
They're the ones that are really gonna take it on the chin on Obama care so they're very upset -- then you look at literally.
Millions of people who are about to lose their employer sponsored health -- President Obama promised if you like your health insurance you can keep it no dice it's not gonna happen.
People are now seeing through it and that's why the people more wrapped up.
Are the people who are gonna make Mitt Romney president -- fifty and the senate and hold on -- the house.
In terms of people who are -- in and they're good -- employer insurance I did see one poll tonight and Gallup.
Fewer US adults 46 to 64 are getting health insurance from an employer 2012.
A downward -- movement since 2008 that I didn't it's down from a 56%.
Point 56 point 755 point nine.
Down and I can clarify it's absolutely true because I was on the phone yesterday with an employer with 400 employees another one had 250.
Everything is changing after this health care law passed they're scared to death they said I can't afford to pay this I'm paying the fine.
Which means I hate this my employees now are gonna lose health insurance employers don't want to drop it.
But if you have a policy that's gonna cost 20000.
Dollars a year for a family.
He can't do what he had to other people though who are being employees who are losing the employer health insurers they will then go to the exchanges.
-- they have to go home -- policy in the prior market -- it will it will it be more more expensive than all day and far more -- a federal tax lawyer this is how it's gonna work.
Today if you have health care from your employer.
It's tax free -- you just pay no taxes.
Now when you have to go to -- -- health care exchanges.
You have to use an after tax money the average family policy Greta is expected to be 20000.
I'm going to take 20000.
After texting come.
And goal by an expensive policy that government forces need to buy I don't have a choice.
It's like here's your option on the menu one choice and that's what she get this is not.
The American way we've never had health care like this before that's why I know people are gonna come out this November an example for people are gonna really bring down the cost of health care Barack Obama city bring it down 2500.
Dollars per household.
Instead we went up about that -- He's off by 5000 dollars per household -- how much you but for people in Minnesota they have a 5000 dollar.
Increased so what should pay and health insurance to day.
Or what the president said.
That's not going very what happened to the people in this Medicaid expansion or number of states Florida.
The Texas and and a few others who say that they are not going to -- expand their Medicaid.
So the people instead of getting -- using Medicaid and -- like hospitalization.
Let's -- them in a very bad car accident and then up at the hospital is it now of the doctors and hospital opaque is knocking it turned away when somebody's pain.
Who's paid well Medicaid and -- that's available now will still be there but I'm not I don't want expansion in the expansion but the pure in this window this a 133%.
Of -- -- -- -- -- -- 3% above poverty right those people who -- -- the thinking under Obama under the Obama cares that they would be covered by Medicaid expansion right.
It isn't that all those people don't have health insurance now.
A great number of it was I don't care already have held that -- -- -- I'm curious about the ones who don't.
Right and no -- who don't have this expanded because there in the states -- won't expand.
They end up in a serious -- and didn't show up and passed out.
Someone is going to pay it -- is it out the rest is good paying higher premiums somewhere or is it is we have the hospitals get paid for -- -- somebody's got to pay for that exact phrase that example that's given as the one of the president always continues to get.
Know what I -- isn't such a tiny percentage that.
Answer is to bring down on the price of health care the more government intervention we have the higher the price of -- -- Three simple things we can do -- -- -- won by any health insurance policy they want anywhere no minimum requirement.
I would tax free money kept true medical malpractice reform.
Every -- It -- Saturday still does doesn't cost taxpayers -- don't -- But is it gonna cost the hospital the doctors had to go to should be it was painful to listen somebody is going to be paying.
The problem has every time the federal government gets involved this gotten that cost sky rocket and it will be far more expensive you see that's the bottom line.
With the president's health care plan Greta.
We pay a lot more.
We get a lot -- well I really don't start me on government waste is fourteen billion dollars that we reported on Monday.
It overpayments in unemployment benefits is a disaster -- gas at a stop so much waste and fraud in in a government run health care system won't be fraught with waste are you kidding me.
And I got -- to sell your Greta indeed -- anyway Cashman.
