House's latest vote.
To repeal president Obama's health care -- five Democrats crossed party lines this time and voted yes.
Along with all of the Republican lawmakers meanwhile democratic lawmakers were less than plea is to move claiming that the move was purely political.
-- The politics be damned we came to do which.
-- we think we.
We're very proud of what we did of course we're throughout I think -- judgment of the court the decision handed down by the court.
And as -- I think the election will be about jobs this -- -- four million jobs.
Repealing the Affordable Care Act is wrong it was wrong the first time.
It -- wrong the 31 time welcome to Groundhog Day in the House of Representatives.
And -- -- -- day he says California Republican -- -- -- joins me now chairman.
Of the house committee on oversight and government reform.
Welcome congressman I -- good to have you back again.
Well thanks for covering this important issue market you know you -- the ladies they're saying look enough is enough this past then the Supreme Court upheld it.
You've tried 33 times to overturn it and repeal it and the house as you know the White House -- said.
Well they didn't -- move on when we when one of those votes was to repeal the 1099 provision.
They shouldn't objective we try to repeal the medical device -- but they would.
That the fact is that this this bill although constitutional based on our power to tax.
Was was derived and that's what we had Democrats voting with derived by lying about it being attacked.
And the 21 taxes that are imbedded in Obama care include taxes that run up the cost of health care.
Our hearings yesterday dealt with.
Regular people the people that employ or are employed realizing that driving up the cost of health care is not driving up.
Which is ultimately what the American people want they wanna be able to afford their health here.
Not have -- break the bank with the they get it.
You know I couple couple good questions is still at the house -- we surprised that five Democrats it's a little it's -- they'll hire.
Five Democrats voted on your side.
I'm always surprised there aren't more Democrats who either based on -- the lies somewhere would be in the bill.
Or based on the taxes.
And and the other broken promises.
Aren't voting with this but speaker -- former speaker Pelosi.
Is pretty tough on people -- primary people -- hurt people who who don't vote with their.
But I'm I'm very happy that we had five there -- -- course I'm holding Eric Holder in contempt with seventeen Democrats across party lines.
I was -- the other side over to the senate what do you expect will happen.
With this when it has over there.
The the makeup of the senate is still about not allowing -- votes.
If they allowed real votes on on many of the -- portions of obamacare it would be gone.
Every time we send the repeal it's because it's built on bad assumptions and if we're gonna drive down the cost of health care.
Increase availability and affordability we've got to start over with something that attacks the cost in in yesterday in both the morning in the afternoon hearings.
The one thing the Democrats never even tried to fight.
Was the fact that obamacare does nothing to drive down cost and cost have risen under the time leading into the implementation of obamacare.
So I think of the -- and we look at some of these new poll since the Supreme Court decision that the number of people who are opposed of Americans were pulled.
To the Health Care Reform bill is has dropped a little bit since that Supreme Court decision said do you feel at all at odds with what that the polls in the country are telling us.
Martha remember that most of the taxes are just kicking in people are gonna start paying next you're in the -- after additional taxes are gonna see the cost of -- hip replacement go up because of medical device has an additional tax placed on it.
Imagine we say we want people to get health care.
And then in order to implement it we actually tax the products making them more expensive.
That's what obamacare did it taxed income producers it tax savings you tax the devices themselves.
And ultimately it is already led to higher prices.
Remember if you can afford health care you'll get health care and -- our country cannot be competitive and afford health care.
Then in fact we were all hurt you -- estimates of over 800000.
Jobs being lost directly as a result of implementation.
800000 jobs we have and produce that many jobs and.
That's embedded -- quick chance to be -- and I mean some say it will you know enough with the repeals 33 times the vote in the house.
Why you tell us what you'd like to ditto for -- -- put out a specific proposal about how you would do it.
Well first -- like to -- to strip out.
This -- this concept.
We take 2000 from the -- he doesn't provide health care we take 2000 from the employee if they can't afford health care.
Right now government is set to take four to 5000 dollars.
From the employer and employee without providing any health -- the first thing we we do is eliminate these so called penalties that became -- tax.
And at least have them apply toward health care.
If there's 4000 dollars to put in health care.
Why should we take it and put it in the treasury when in fact at least that could go into health savings account for those people who need health care.
Congress and I said thank you good to see you listening humorous if.
