Anyway this defense is health care law but as a house democratic leader gets ready to celebrate our next guest -- set the record -- -- And taxpayer watchdog Gretchen -- say it -- independent -- -- races conduct -- only coming up here and this is offered anything but it depends.
You know I wonder if Nancy Pelosi there three years since the laws passed there's actually read that your she said she wanted to have to pass it before we know -- -- it.
It's anything but independent independents -- is exercising.
Changing your diet preventing.
Diseases from occurring he dependence is dependent on insurance and dependence on everything being covered all pre existing conditions.
Or preventive services the bells and whistles that's dependant using insurance when you don't need to pay a high premium.
Pay every penny you have to you can have insurance that statement that this is rhetoric and it's really.
This disingenuous and I think it's an insult to the American people.
All right I'm gonna put it down as -- maybe one of her life on the Gretchen what what what -- -- of this and and and but it didn't -- The former speaker to go to the extent she did say that this is exactly what our founding fathers would have would have -- -- I think.
I think you know the different bounding bothers than we know by me earlier in the week she said it was fabulous now she's saying it's a reason -- celebrate this Independence Day.
Bet it depends upon government in and increase rolling government in our everyday lives and having a having -- say what our health situation -- That is not a reason to celebrate and this a bit.
Promises that they sold as plan on have not panned out and I think -- has an American public a little -- as we've seen our premiums go up our plans are changing and we're already starting to see doctor shortages this is not a reason to celebrate at all.
You know doctor as a doctor I mean you see an up close better than than any of us but I that the people from this was intended the uninsured.
What was that the server two out of three that are that are not -- over it or inclined that they would be part of it.
For the -- low wage Americans for whom was also expect to benefit.
Close to two out of three of them don't want anything to do it.
So bottom line we offended an entire health care system that was the envy of the world for something that we are billion shy.
Deal to put it another way 88% of people covered before.
Now we're trying to get up to 95%.
And in order to do that a lot of employers are gonna be dumping the people that they have on the health insurance they're gonna make people.
Part time so that they don't have to cover them they're gonna go to the state exchanges and find they can't afford the premiums there.
The government is gonna have to go -- subsidize everyone and some people won't qualify for that.
They'll fit in -- in the gap.
More and more premiums are going up as as you said the photos of people won't get access and the with a doctor shortage you won't get access to the care you need now under the.
Affordable Care Act which is not affordable well obviously there's a push to sell the good stuff and I think part -- Gretchen has been and those preexisting conditions to the doctors point kids you can keeping it in their policy yet another reason for them deliberative for the rest of your life.
Odd so so there's Saturday -- -- our look at that at end and that's the good and that's they're gonna be present that's when it had not the NFL in the NBA today.
To attracts young people to be part of this is any networking.
Well I think we're waiting to see if that's gonna work or not this they -- just now kicked off their big plan to start getting more and more people enrolled in this and they are targeting.
Young is young people -- -- do you -- it and I -- that well it'll be interesting to think they can I am giving them and that's big they don't get insurance if they don't wanna be a part of this program.
Neil young people don't need just to this point that she's making that young people don't need this kind of policies they need catastrophic policies.
-- -- something if you happen to run into a tree when you're skating that'll cover you in the emergency room what do you need the kind of coverage where you can go to the doctor whenever you need it when you're not even sick.
That should be paid out of pocket.
That's should be with flexible spending accounts that should be tax deductible we incentives for weight loss incentives for exercise and that's -- and you say it's it's not -- -- -- it's not a large part of the bill.
-- is a large part of the bill is young people paying high premiums.
Guys thank you both very very much -- --
