There was some hope that.
Once -- Supreme Court ruled in July and then wants an election occurred.
There would be that sense that this is the law of the land let's get on board let's make this work.
And yet we find ourselves still.
Some sort of state by state political battles and again creating what I think is just a lot of confusion.
This is a very confusing piece of legislation piece of legislation that's now law are still making rules about it they're still -- you know trying to figure out how to implement it.
They're delaying key parts of -- that's very frustrating to.
Governors and two to the American people.
And human services secretary Kathleen Sebelius speaking at Harvard saying that it's.
Well it's just been much tougher than -- anticipated implementing.
Obamacare and the push back has been much more intense.
Than I anticipated critics saying.
We told you so Wyoming senator.
Republican John Brosseau taking to the senate floor today saying he'd like the honesty to continue.
From the administration.
Saying quote it's time for President Obama to finally admit that his health care law is dragging down the American.
Economy Brosseau a Doctor Who often speaks out about Obama care -- back with the panel.
-- it appears that the administration is dealing with the tough implementation.
Every day -- But there's a long way to go I mean when they first witness this first -- as a lot of kind of calming public concerns by saying.
-- -- first of all having these these popular provisions out first thinking you can keep your child on your policy -- your -- six.
And -- 26 and then the -- president saying well don't worry this isn't gonna affect any of you who already have health insurance.
Well lo and behold now people if you work for big company you're scared that the big company might decide.
Two and health insurance.
It's rich now wouldn't it has had a rich health insurance plan and it might -- that and pay the penalty instead in years Europe and you will -- a lot you don't buy your own health insurance.
If you worked for small company you have to worry about whether the company's gonna put you on a part time basis that they don't have to insure you if you're a small business owner.
-- have to worry about premiums going up because there's a lot of talk to premiums are going to be going up both for individuals and small businesses.
And if you're a citizen and one of the 33 states -- haven't signed up to build an exchange.
Where where -- Obama -- leave here so there's all this uncertainty out there.
That this reality and I know -- civilians talked about political battles -- in the states but there's also a realism behind a lot of the uncertainty.
It was kind of surprising here civilians.
Be surprised yeah.
I mean they knew all along that than one of the main criticisms the strongest -- against their health care law was.
That it was there was no one size fits all federal health care program required that each state should handle it -- sound and in front of market.
And so they knew that there are going to be creating filling the exchanges and how -- -- state by state political negotiations over implementation was always going to be difficult.
So he's going to be challenging necessary but it shouldn't be surprising.
And it and it really is strange that they thought that Supreme Court decision.
You know an election would just take care of public opinion on this loss still really poor.
And I think as they get into.
You know if the exchanges and all this other and stability with premiums are rising and everything it's going to become more Marmara.
Page bill with 171000.
Pages of regulation that's a little complex.
It's very it's -- -- rich to hear -- suggesting that she's kind of surprised.
That it's also complicated they also weren't listening.
Two Republican governors out there there's now a majority of the states have.
Republican governors and the reason.
They are not doing the exchanges is they don't trust the federal government they believe that it's gonna cost them money if they were to set up an exchange.
And that they believe that though that the promises that they would have some control of the exchange will not happen.
And as far as expanding Medicaid which is not a huge part of obamacare.
They don't believe the federal government's promise that the feds will pick up the charges for that increased now forever and ever.
Quickly down the line how much a factor does this start to become as we -- in 24 to a huge factor.
-- I -- significant time in the next paragraph because there.
After a bad factor for the White House and is repeal.
A running point and is repeal something Republicans -- it could be eight and it just was not this was -- an entitlement like Medicare and Social Security that was not passed.
The bipartisan support.
That's been hunting this White House our sense and it will continue to have.
