I think they're between a rock and a hard place here that time is very short.
And they're trying to take the health care law obamacare mainstream by any means possible just.
The country's very divided -- -- it was passed on a very partisan vote.
And now the administration is looking to a lot of different places for help in selling -- health care a -- as it rolls out and now delaying a very important.
Deadline it's going to be pushed back to -- teens let's bring in our panel to talk about that.
Pine needles start with you you know we've had this news that the president has talked about librarians -- we're hearing on the school teachers and all kinds of different places are going to be used to help.
Roll this out convince people that it's a positive thing but there's a lot of selling to be done still yet to extend their mounting a massive public relations campaign to sell.
What is a very divisive law as we just heard on -- on mostly party line vote and it's been a very divisive.
And lost I thought it was very telling.
That the and that baseball league and the National Football League is set now thank you because.
Not only in in terms of being part of this campaign disinformation campaign because not only -- has become it if it's always been politically divisive.
The question now is when it starts actually hitting people and and they actually feel the -- of it will it become toxic.
And before was viewed as did not and -- you get to keep your kid on your policy -- they're 26.
On people with pre existing conditions.
You know won't be bounced out of the system.
It's gonna extend you generally we talk generally about extending insurance to people who don't have it now.
But now we have studies coming out saying that healthy people like a healthy forty year old.
Is likely to page two to three times that amount did what they're paying now if they're buying an individual policy.
That's sticker shock that's shocking that -- really hard pill to swallow even if it means that people with with preexisting conditions are sicker people.
Might be paying less it's really going to be hitting people hard.
It's interesting as you alluded to they're also having issues that businesses.
And they've now pushed back the deadline for this -- -- to comply with the mandates and that for a year as we're just kind of joking around -- table here.
-- after the 2014 election.
He had this is -- 2015 the employer mandate which is that they captured provide certain coverage for employees.
Is moved back to 315.
One -- region a little bit of what senator -- so had to say he's a Republican also a physician says.
Delaying the employer mandate is -- clear admission by the administration that the health care laws unaffordable unworkable an unpopular.
It's also a cynical political ploy to delay the coming train wreck associated with obamacare until after the 2014 elections I'm guessing you wouldn't use the words train -- for -- None you know and I think senator Barack so Saturday it was Pat Roberts the senator from Kansas.

No but the fact is most people get their insurance through their employer.
So most people aren't going to be affected by this so we're talking about what the journal did today was to take a very healthy nonsmoking male.
I believe he was forty years old and and the compare him to someone who is sick.
And what their rates would be under this new plan and say well currently that healthy -- would only have to pay you know a base feet.
Now that's -- People who are doing a preexisting conditions people who are sick.
Are going to be included an insurance companies as they compete.
Well not be able to eliminate those people or so you we won't cover you -- those numbers will go -- something.
But for -- it it's just not.

You know some of them may come to passion and I don't know back.
The fact is it's not going to be the sky's falling in the way that you hear.
At least not until after this week fourteen action -- according to Charles.
There's a connection there.
Cynicism is always the right assumption when dealing with this administration I think senator -- was exactly right.
Did dates aren't accidental and I would say -- want.
That no one person who called at a train wreck obamacare was not a Republican.
He was the democratic senators head of the budget.
Committee Max Baucus who knows which he speaks -- -- in the end of dealings with him a massive.
Trent for -- well from the young to the old young people are going to be paying double and triple what would ordinarily be paying.
In health insurance if the premium more linked.
-- the risk which is the way it's been for the last 600 years and insurance but it's not it's -- to work.
Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid agreed upon as the risk ratio so they need to be doubling tripling and that's the affected are those the free lunch.
