Now the growing push to delay a key part of president Obama's health care law according to a brand new Rasmussen poll.
-- that a majority of Americans are now in favor of delaying the start of the individual.
The stipulation requiring all Americans to either purchase health care or facing a very hefty fine.
This after the administration's decision last week to delay.
A similar requirement for business let's bring in our political insiders.
-- -- bluntly if former Republican congressman for New York -- -- Fox News contributor former pollster president Jimmy Carter to show on.
He -- a Fox News contributor a former pollster for Bill Clinton he joins us live from Tucson Arizona -- let me start review on.
Is this a president who is increasingly.
-- looking like the biggest lame duck president since Richard Nixon.
Well I I think that that's a fair statement -- you look at immigration.
Bottom line that's I think going to be.
Dead in the water in the house you were actually -- about the health care there's large scale pulling back on that.
The food stamp program is in dire trouble with the passage of farm bill this week in the separation of that from.
The food stamp program so bottom line the agendas dead there's no movement towards a balanced budget Greg.
And bottom line the agenda domestically is.
Dead in the water and internationally we look -- You know what happens when you Google -- -- just did a moment ago Barack Obama and the words -- There's like a gazillion hits.
What do you think.
Well I think legislatively -- -- what I think the administration's side is they're not putting anything past matters wine -- going all while.
To try to do everything administratively.
Whether it is home health care law the appointments he does we see Harry Reid is threatening a nuclear option in the senate.
The presidents decided to use his appointments.
In regulatory process.
Can change the country I mean really we have a lawless administration we have -- we have 100 George Bush that would change -- president -- of power.
But essentially what we've done is given up the idea of rule of law here we don't care about legislation -- him.
And where we're at -- order where is the president even -- Obama -- was his legislator and where does he get off just announcing I'm delaying.
By year I'd horrible law I got section 1513.
In front of -- right here in the look at the mandate Schaub again.
January 1 of this next year's -- understand the answer is mandatory that White House last week announces were delaying it for a year.
Where is someone coming for other than senator Tom Harkin is the only one as a liberal.
I don't see anybody in the media I don't even see any Republicans coming -- saying he can't do this.
Well I did talk to us senator -- and he said that all adjustments we're using -- term lawless administration.
Fits what's going on on the whole program because we have the NSA we have the -- rest of the biggest one.
We have got the we had all these things that show a disregard for the law.
Yet the Republicans.
Are not personally got so it's sitting there in a vacuum Doug let me go -- you on this.
-- where is this thing headed easy can it be more than just being large businesses.
That are gonna get a delay what about individuals.
And I mean this president's all about fairness.
Heck if you're gonna be fair you gotta give it to individuals -- small businesses don't -- Well I and I think if you go back great does something patent John and I have been talking about.
With you for really months now.
The whole notion of delaying the implementation.
Of obamacare which is a message and -- tactic that the Republicans are increasingly coming to.
If they use that as an issue in the upcoming mid term elections it could be politically potent it could well succeed on the merits.
And it could drive -- concerned that increasingly as the polls we've been showing -- show.
The American people don't want the legislation they think it's gonna raise cost and make healthcare more difficulty.
Yes angrier about this because everything they were promised turns out to be why it was a whole PS you can keep your health insurance you're not income site you're.
Rates won't go up all of that was a line in order to put.
More people on.
Well and now people are beginning to experience is who wants to meet -- could could the Democrats lose the senate.
They can -- sued over this if the Republicans who by the way the Democrats remember.
They're secret weapon.
He's just stupidity the Republican right who would do not know how to make an argument at their lives to pollute but he couldn't get out of what paper bag.
But they have something here with the delay reputedly one delay the mall to delay the more you kill the -- what we've -- and I still say -- -- they wouldn't want -- The IRS investigation took.
Bring out the fact that this key.
Part of obamacare is so corrupt.
We can't entrusted to run the mandates for you John you're Republicans -- don't -- what is the Republican play here you her -- Pat says here Republicans will invariably screw this up pat thinks.
What do Republicans do I think I think the three of us have been very happy that in the last week.
They did announce that this coming week in the house speaker Boehner is bringing a vote on the floor to delay the personal mandate.
For a year to -- the employer mandate and they're gonna have a lot vote on the employer mandate don't ignore you want to see how -- have Democrats who think wanna vote.
To keep that me and I mean they're.
They can put these guys in the senator in real place and it'll pass that you can pass into the house Greg just on Republican votes sent to the senate.
And all these senators Pryor land -- They're open seats now in Wyoming.
Well Montana I mean they're going to be nervous about those -- All let's switch now to immigration because that's an important one all lot going on in the house to go to you on this Peter Paul would Ryan want full reform.
What's gonna happen here -- senate has passed their version what about the house in bits and pieces.
It doesn't look to me like we're gonna get a comprehensive bill Greg that's for sure.
The house Republicans are adamant that border security be done first.
So unless we start with that I don't think they'll be anything and then and only then will I think -- Republicans in the house agreed to a pathway to citizenship.
But increasingly the cost of that.
As well as the difficulty of it I've become a real problem and the a word amnesty is being bandied about by the Republicans so I'm frankly pessimistic -- You -- yeah I I think by the way and I think the Republicans have taken up a new argument on immigration.
They are saying which is an interest in one.
They're saying the president says he could do whatever he wants with the health care law.
But regardless of what the statute says we can't trust this administration to enforce.
The provisions in this bill and you know what.
They've got an argument and maybe with -- and Apollo tunnel leaving that Obama did care I'd like to get back to his whole.
Lame duck thing I've never seen a re elected president less in arrested in any of the stuff we're talking about he's not pushing any of this stuff.
He's disappeared in the in the first six months of his second term let me talk about the farm bill which is trying to wrestle odd -- with food stamps -- I think Americans are now.
Realizing that this is out of control a 101 million people.
Aren't getting some form.
Of food stamps.
That's more people -- then Americans employed.
-- a third country and here's.
He sorry he -- -- here's the issue.
It is undeniable.
That -- can and should be some.
Cost comparisons cost effectiveness studies and effort to -- the program back.
But what is problematic and what is causing the Republicans a problem because the farm bill was done without anything.
Any attention paid.
To food stamps -- now in a position where it's.
-- and no food stamps.
-- a program that is unsustainable and out of control we the American people would want compromise we're not getting -- what we lack is common sense.
They are promoting this program.
And the banks -- promoting -- because they wanna make money on it I mean this is a massive let's get everybody on food stamps dependency.
That the same time.
We knew we can't cut out -- helping people that release.
That's the problem -- lack of common --
