-- senate majority leader Harry Reid just slam obamacare the law he helped push through during a radio show the democratic leader admitting he agrees -- comments made by his colleagues fellow democratic senator Max Baucus.
Unless we implement this property is going to be a train -- and I agree with him.
So we're not spending enough money or not implementing it properly your -- yes -- -- Harrison here's what we have now changing.
We have the menu.
But we don't have any way to get to them and you.
To senator Reid really say train wreck the -- as a -- and be back.
Joins us was that does nice to see at least I was at a slip of the tongue -- says strategic marketing train -- I think it was strategic he wants to give -- to his colleague Max Baucus who sentenced to great up -- -- -- -- little better.
-- -- of Republican attacks the last couple of weeks.
But no Harry -- isn't here he's saying that if the -- isn't implemented properly and things could go wrong and that's -- all -- -- -- well except the law was -- I mean what's there it was putting the blame -- if it won't be implemented correctly he's trying to turn it around and -- Republicans aren't giving -- administration enough funds for implementation they're trying to make -- an attack on the GOP.
Now it's true that the administration is having trouble with some of the creative accounting that it needs to do to get this done and congress has not been able to you know grant them more friends.
But I don't know if Harry -- contest for too much longer it seems like a -- point to -- well if -- -- -- October -- these exchanges must be set up right -- and the expectation in the -- -- -- most that states should set him -- themselves OK now turns -- a lot of states about 326 -- said no I mean the -- have to set up these exchanges in the states right yes -- who's paying for that was at an unexpected unexpected -- the federal government six.
And so -- all the money for -- that's right they don't have the money -- -- -- having to pull it from other parts of HHS the federal Health Department other parts of obamacare implementation.
Because -- state run exchanges they're allowed to take as much money as they want and that's.
But he's utterly one brown ones but that was not anticipated when a -- was -- How come sequestered they can go get that money but they can't go get the money for instance from one pocket to -- in the White House tourist Florida right keep it when the FAA was -- for the extra cash.
How come -- that would sequestration they can move money around for the health -- try to get it together for the federal exchanges I -- -- -- lots of written and -- ways you know these people aren't necessarily accounting experts don't know that they can do some things administratively to do -- -- If she just has come to congress several times and we need more money for this we need to make sure that the public understands the law.
That the exchanges are going to be ready on January 1 2014 so that we can launch this coverage.
And that I think people are worried about it -- senator baucus -- -- word to train -- was that like a huge state prominent Democrat Carl I know huge absolutely huge we've heard from a lot of democratic sources that there worried about sex and frankly I don't -- the White House is doing enough to educate the public.
And -- people on the benefits that this plot was supposed to provide -- is it expected these exchanges will be ready October 1.
Good question we haven't heard much about the -- needs to be honest that's the question we're posing to a lot of sources and that's not what people are saying but I guess we'll have to wait and see police thank you and thank you.
