Republican members of congress -- blast in the White House for all the Obama -- delays -- likely insisting the employer mandate delay protects.
Fat -- big business owners believes American families to bear the burden.
So what does senator -- plan for that.
Senator lead author of the book why John Roberts is wrong about health care joins us thanks to see you sir good to see you did I correctly -- you about -- fat cats.
Yes the president's corporate cronies are getting a break.
-- hard working Americans are going to be required to comply with the individual mandate this is in fair the president doesn't have the authority as you know.
To rewrite the law after congress has passed it.
The president said he's not ready to implement the law if he's not ready to implement it we shouldn't fund it.
The American people shouldn't be required to pay for what they're not getting -- so we need to defund the implementation of Obama -- Easy now -- isn't dead not ready for 2014 was January 24 -- was supposed to happen this employer mandate.
Is it because they just couldn't get their act together and -- the inefficiencies of government or it's too big and complicated.
Or is this some think is that it's a political ploy because there are US senators and Democratic Party up for.
Grew out reelection in mid terms and it should get it past that midterm election January 25 tee which editors about.
I think the political considerations are definitely a dominant force here I also think the sheer complexity of the laws made it impossible for the president.
To get this thing together it is so complex it's a 2700 page bill.
That's good for the 20000 regulation -- for starters attorney senate page -- now seems simple precisely what.
It at the end of the day I think it might be some of both.
But the important thing to remember is that if he's not ready to implement it.
He shouldn't be implementing part of it he shouldn't be implementing it in a way that benefits is corporate cronies while throwing hard working Americans into -- best.
And those so called corporate cronies are also Republican business owners who have -- -- on the White House door saying about this is too complicated we can't do this so those corporate cronies are also big Republican business people.
Well -- call them whatever you want we -- corporate cronies did took the point is that they shouldn't be given a pass while individuals are told.
You have to apply.
You have to comply with the mandate.
I miss about -- this letter out that was written by the speaker of the house -- in the spat press speaker Boehner has written a letter to President Obama dated today.
And he's been asking for a for the president to provide congress is justification for only delaying -- -- employer mandate which is what you say and not the F new mandate on individuals individuals and families.
In addition he wants the present provide the speaker -- a complete list of all other provisions in the law.
That he expects to delay prior to October 1 2013.
We think the -- star Alex also signed by a lot people including -- majority leader cantor.
-- that the presence but it has -- respond to this.
I think the odds are pretty low this president has not been very forthcoming in telling us exactly what his plans are.
He made two separate -- announcements last week one early in the week another on Friday.
I mean that was -- but we don't know when it went on Friday night we know it's just a document -- -- -- hide it over the weekend from the media but this has squashed between the fourth of July and a weekend that's right head for all we know there are more announcements to come.
About other provisions of the law that he's not going to be implementing.
The point is no Republican in congress no member of congress from either house -- either political party has any business.
Voting to fund the operations of government if that funding package includes obamacare funny.
The American people aren't getting obamacare implementation.
They shouldn't be required to pay for -- -- ancient concept but did amend it by only doing partial.
Implementation I hadn't thought about it but I suppose it happens all the time with -- doesn't.
Well you know not quite like this not where you have cohesive whole of a piece of legislation with a whole lot of deadlines that are coordinated.
You've got a whole lot of provisions that are set to kick in on January 1 1814.
And what he's saying is I'm going to implement some of them but not others are big business now that's right senator nice to -- -- thank you can.
