-- fallen apart.
We're ready for surprised Rush Limbaugh says no it is not falling apart.
OK so what happens is at Obama says it was last Tuesday that -- employer mandate.
More a year.
But then on Friday there was another announcement.
You know it -- -- those so why -- That -- they import your mandate.
Has gone -- most.
Essentially anybody can show up at an exchange.
And say I've qualified it's -- system.
And -- -- and I have people over the weekend why we're here is really great Obama or fall apart didn't agree it's not falling apart folks.
On -- here's what ever Obama wanted to be from day today from our our.
Take -- -- cut to the change real quick on this.
An ominous spend some time later on -- -- -- loaded here today but I wanna I wanna get make sure you understand his right of the -- The fact that -- the the personal mandate stands.
You still have to have insurance or pay the fine do would expect there is no out of that.
The because it doesn't have to cut you.
Next year or this year what do -- is totally out of but you still have to be covered.
The reason for what happened last week is to get as many people enrolled in obamacare is possible making it harder and harder to repeal it.
Because repealing it would mean taking away there in shorts.
And that's why Obama is out they're selling this thing.
Like it's a campaign issue.
That in the 2014 mid terms why the web for all these people have more check -- I got sit there and Obama guerrilla war to report didn't ever or -- while they -- -- by the way.
But what happened last week does not mean the end of obamacare just means Obama recognized it was in trouble.
And has taken steps to ensure it'll never be taken away.
No matter how bad.
-- -- -- Texas governor Rick Perry joins this good evening -- Greta how are you good evening I threw out -- -- get too many big announcement a second -- offers talking about Obama care and -- Your thoughts about day at least the postponement of one year for the employer mandate from 2014 to 2015 we think about it.
Well I think politically it was probably.
Fairly smooth move if you will for the administration because you get past the 24 team.
Mid term elections before the impact of this occurs one of the reasons that we haven't participated in taxes obviously is the cost.
Expanding and Medicaid all of those are going to be tremendous cost on.
The state of Texas and you know any state the participates in this but the idea that these exchanges.
You know I and I go back to.
I think gives if there is -- real Achilles hill and there's many would this piece of legislation.
It's the exchanges.
We did not choose to participate -- them.
And one of the things -- saying this administration.
Understanding now is the cause of the cost.
And because of the expertise that the federal government does not have either.
That there -- looking for ways to get around the law as it's written so.
You know what what he really expect from a piece a legislation.
That the vast majority of the members of congress didn't read before they voted on this administrations this kind of making it up as they go.
I'd -- -- out -- -- and -- -- -- -- announcement today found that you won't be running for governor again and the state of Texas now.
I had to say everybody in the country at least most people filed -- -- very in very suspicious that well what -- really and so the under current pleasant.
That is because you're getting geared up to run for president.
And -- at least the word is that last time we thought that day didn't quite make in 2012 because he got in late.
And that -- so -- said things about people who tried twice do better the second time around -- some -- back so what's the story and ran for president.
I think all of those are interesting theories -- the fact is that.
People theorize and people try to estimate what is going on in my live.
What's going on in my life as I've been a governor of the greatest state in the nation for twelve years we have a very enviable record of job creation.
Some 30% of all the jobs created in the last ten years who created in the state of Texas.
We have truly put together.
-- A state that.
It shows the rest of the country just how to create jobs and and and that's the real story here.
For twelve years we've been very successful.
I think it's time to pass the mantle of leadership on hand.
I'll decide the next year what my future path will be.
What would what would be served -- would provoke you to run for president what do you focusing on the terms of making your decision.
I don't think you get provoked to run for president.
I think what.
You look like a monkey off when make you want to run for president what -- what do you -- what do you look at for.
-- I'll make that decision a year Greta it certainly has not been made it all for the next eighteen months I'm going to be focused again.
On talking about red state and -- state policies how to make America more.
Competitive in states competing against each other our founding fathers really got it right they understood.
That these laboratories of innovation these states.
We're gonna make decisions internally.
And Washington being more inconsequential.
Is what I'm trying to work towards getting other states to understand that they really have the best ideas on how to deliver health care -- Educate their children -- build transportation infrastructure for that matter.
Governor I think you're probably watching a course -- asking that question nine times overview and how your little -- -- instead tried thank you sir.
