In Utah senator Mike -- -- Well not really shut down the federal government but unless obamacare -- the fund that you're saying -- -- -- fund obamacare how's that going over senator.
Well it's going well in that sense the American people are overwhelmingly in support of -- the American people don't like this law congress never read the law before it was passed.
The Supreme Court amended it not once but twice and now President Obama has done exactly the same thing.
Amending it twice without any constitutional authority to do that.
He's exempt out -- big corporate cronies from the employer mandate meanwhile -- told.
Hardworking individual Americans they have to comply with the laws exacting commands or else they'll be fine severely under federal law.
The point is the president's now told us he's not gonna fall this law if he's not gonna follow what the American people shouldn't be required to fund it.
So few of us in congress are saying look but were not going to fund obamacare.
You you can criticize -- all you want but we're not gonna pass a continuing resolution or other appropriations measure.
That includes funding for ongoing further enforcement and implementation of obamacare -- you congress has the authority the purse so.
You would for you are encouraging the house and the senate.
To fund everything else Medicare.
The military every other function of government but Obama care.
How is the supporters are great divide on that issue.
Yes there's a significant -- behind even within the party so far.
But this is where the party is going to be changing its gonna be changing because the calls for the American from the American people were overwhelming on this show on they don't want this lot of kick in.
The -- -- once this law kicks in it'll be much harder forced to get out of it.
A lot of us as Republicans were elected just a few years ago with a mandate to stop this horrible law.
And now people or cern understand that you're either with obamacare or you're against it.
If you're with that -- to be fine voting for a CR the -- obamacare if you're against it you must commit to vote against any CR that contains obamacare funding.
So you're saying to the Republicans rather than some symbolic votes to.
Eliminate obamacare and and remove it -- law on the land they could use their constitutional authority to defund obamacare and fund the rest of the government.
It seems to me that is the only way out and say you saying this is the last opportunity we have.
Yes this is the last.
Stop on the obamacare express.
Before this law kicks in in full force on January 1 2014.
We've got one last shot.
And that shot will occur when this current continuing resolution expires September 30 we've got to pass another one to keep the government -- it.
Now some in the liberal media have miss characterize this as a promise to shut down the government we don't want that we don't need it.
We can't avoid it we will afford it we want to keep everything funded in the government everything except obamacare bill if Harry Reid wants to force that that would be unfortunate but.
Harry Reid I don't think is going is not going to force a government -- Simply because he wants to defend a law that is itself indefensible.
A law that the president said is not ready to be implemented.
Analog that the senate author.
Obamacare his described himself as a train wreck.
Waiting to have that that's Max Baucus while and it's also causing businesses.
Not to hire full time workers last question we're we're discussing -- our audience tonight the issue of division in the country.
We see a lot of -- in Washington.
You've been there awhile how divided is it in DC.
You know DC's pretty divided there's a lot of talk about how -- DC is.
On the -- what people sometimes overlook is that.
There -- a lot of areas where we actually agree sometimes there are areas where we agree too often the bigger division that I see -- Is the division that's taking place between the political governing class in Washington.
-- either political party.
On the one hand in the American people on the other when we put forward big new programs like obamacare that divides America and that's bad we've got -- -- -- -- -- -- likely thanks so much for being with us -- and Avalon.
