The president is vowing to veto any bill that delays the lob to Minnesota Republican congresswoman Michelle Bachmann who asks why after all the president was first to do it thank you congresswoman go -- you wanna explain.
Well this is what's bewildering to people because of the president thought that this was such a great idea.
That he unilaterally delayed the employer mandate for one year.
Why wouldn't he want to see the correct process which is -- congress pass a lot to do exactly that.
But the reason why he doesn't want to do that because after all the president is standing up for big business now.
And that worries that big business as he's not standing up for small business and he's not standing up for the individual mandate.
That's what we're saying in the house it it's good enough to delay the individual mandate for big businesses Obama care for one year.
Why should it be good for the little guy.
The little guys business and the workers the little guys who work in business we think it is and that's why and the house later today.
We're gonna take that vote because we believe the little guys all across America.
Have the right to be treated equally together with big business.
The guy -- and and they build the unions are saying who made a minute this isn't all it was cracked up to -- this is what we thought it was going to be effect James Hoffa junior says.
You know I don't think I like it either did you ever think you'd be on the same side of obamacare is Jimmy Hoffa.
It is strange bedfellows Derrick here in Washington DC but I read that letter from -- topic today he brought it to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi let's erotic and that letter is he said.
The president said that if we like our health care we can keep that so -- top of the Teamsters is quoting back to the president.
His infamous remark and what he's saying is -- We are losing jobs here in America we're seeing that what was normally the forty hour work week.
Now being reduced to the thirty hour work week because of Obama care.
Our workers can't live on -- we're losing our health care this is a disaster and -- -- gives the quid pro quo.
James -- of the Teamsters union says look.

So is very clear no one likes obamacare.
Locking arms and solidarity with that would pop up oh can we -- you listen to.
James and Sarah.
Hobby -- -- -- that would listen how he explains the cost involved with pushing back in a -- -- Republicans and house representatives.
To the tune of over fifty million dollars have cost the taxpayers.
Time money and their taxpayer money.
In trying to repeal.
The health security law that was passed in 2010 this week we will spend thousands upon thousands of taxpayer dollars.
To to a bill.
That will go nowhere.
And simply is.
Food for the Tea Party extremists in our country who want to see this done.
Congresswoman thoughts you see saying we're gonna spend thousands and thousands of dollars are -- going -- Tea Party.

It's never gotten out of the senate floor and it certainly never gotten on the president's death.
Right now I'll tell you small businesses.
Real Americans big businesses even the Teamsters union would love it if my bill to get on the president's desk everyone wants it gone why.
Because it will cost.
-- the American people trillions of dollars to comply with that.

And less that less than 20% of small businesses of even hired.
Primarily due to the obamacare bill and in the next two years less than 20% a small businesses and tend to hire it was a disaster.
I have to get this scenario to do my job the FBI announced the sting operation they caught one of your staffers.
Well a key to tell us what happened.
What we don't comment on first saw it personnel -- it matters you'd have to talk to capitol police about that what we're focused on today as repealing obamacare.
That's good for jobs that's good for benefit packages that's good for the American economy.
All right we're gonna leave their congress and Michelle Bachmann thank you very much for joining us today thank you Eric --
