-- exchanges will open for business two months from today and the administration is scrambling.
Even though the bill was signed into law over forty months ago furthermore nobody seems to want any part of -- -- Including people in his own administration and political allies on Capitol Hill.
Today the -- of the IRS the agency dedicated to much of the oversight of the massive -- That -- and they want to participate.
Why are your employees trying to exempt themselves from the very love that you're attached.
I don't want to speak for the NT EU and I would acts can speak for myself I prefer to stay with the current policy that I am pleased wit.
Go through a change if I don't need to go through that change.
And over at the White House Jay Carney was asked.
About staffers on Capitol Hill who don't want to have to live under -- -- and they're trying to get out of.
I think this is something that.
I would refer -- to.
Congress on -- clearly.
About the business of implementing the law to congress -- Yes.
But the -- -- even his own people not want to thank you obamacare like its committees Bob demanding safe yourself.
Yeah so -- and hear her saying.
These people have the best health care coverage in America people in administration -- Capitol Hill.
They gilded the Lily they -- themselves everything of course they don't want to go to something that actually we don't have to pay a 100000 dollars for each one of these bombs.
Yep it's you know what.
They're not the only people.
That feel this way you look at the unions did that help heal the health pillars -- go into a gas station late at night and that's -- that rotating machine of hot dogs and and there's always that I want hot dog that's the health care bill.
Everybody looks at the hot dog and they go I'm not eaten that hot dog they could -- Dynegy job -- -- do take it but for other reasons.
It's disgusting and health -- yeah.
There isn't it.
He hated by everybody in nobody wants to admit it passages point up one other thing but the IRS Obama nominated John -- Koskie keep -- -- -- -- but as yet whatever you.
As the -- is as the new head of the IRS he's an expert in turning this institution around because it's in need of reform.
Why would you need reform.
It -- was a phony scandal so apparently you.
It's not a phony scandal back calling the IRS a phony scandals like calling aerial Castro a misunderstood boyfriend I you're camping blocks now they yaks but I I think I can better and retirement -- -- dirty looking at the same thing yesterday I finally got up the to -- -- an -- like -- -- so here's a deal -- The unions got help get obamacare pushed through with the Democrats on help help get Obama care push through.
Now they don't want to be part of because if they keep the health care the president bombs that you can.
-- health -- you -- keep your doctor if they keep they're gonna get taxed to -- -- -- somebody's cat and Cadillac plans these union members are gonna come have to come up with a hundred.
Thousand dollars were taxable income one of them all and they don't want -- they might they say we don't want to the point is this is all political payback.
This was pres Obama saying listen I really need this you have to get this thing through.
He and he did not like they're asking for -- the staffers this is a joke not only of the staffers actual members of congress and senate.
Themselves will have to be under Obama care with the exception.
Of leadership so the leaders of both parties in in in the various committees get to stay on their own health care Cadillac plans it's just -- -- I don't sit like their best laid -- it's like picking and choosing who's gonna win or lose all -- Lehman Brothers gone bankrupt in AIG being sick.
All right and we should get a comment from the White House well at Dana I'm not a lot not this White House -- -- Yeah is gonna put in the position of trying to explain -- side again I mean I am for their -- but let me try to take a stab at a one of the things that senator Coburn is asking a beta test and an Office of Personnel Management which oversees all -- federal employees.
Is -- say can you at least tell us with -- Are we -- are we not going to provide subsidies to our employees as part like these are what this would employers all over the nation are trying to decide right they don't have the option in congress are telling staffers that you're not going to be able to work forty hours a week because they work eighty hours a week.
-- asking for is just to say.
Some certainty so that we can at least make plans with what's happening.
Is you have a lot of staffers we cannot.
A lot of staffers did work against the bill they weren't successful so it's not been -- -- all of them with us.
But they all are starting to leave Capitol Hill answer to other things and so that -- members of congress are worried about the brain but I think senator Coburn actually would.
And would exempt -- would say that leadership and members of congress would have to pay.
The normal thing they would take insurance executives exception of the brain drain if members of congress and there's definitely -- OK let's just say that I'm having your favorite candidate whereas staff is worried there that you know -- you're talking about out of pocket expenses say that your -- you -- 87000 dollars a year Elvis and you had to pay 80000.
Again Eric you have to 101000 dollars -- for your health plan that's a lot of money -- your pocket and that's and it shouldn't pay it.
But that's a simple wouldn't have been nice if the IRS in the various unions -- the states asking for waivers.
Would say prior to this point that we will be -- -- -- -- I operator and we'll take -- it's it's just so like a fun event on Monday at critical coming to a head now.
There's been on my dog that kind of ahead again I don't I don't know I think this time Bob I don't think -- going to.
You're gonna get a pass on that I think the only way they could get -- that is if they would agree it's if the house and -- it is in these piecemeal measures like the medical device tax repeal the past 79 to zero in the senate that has bipartisan support.
Headed back to two democratic senators from Minnesota.
But the house as a wanna do that first to change it reasons they have they have a check -- out.
Unions that -- -- -- that it does though there are going to -- our drive for five years and they want another five years illicit.
These people were enjoying the most unbelievable health care benefits of anybody in America they should have unions that unions usually usually about -- -- -- About as good Capitol Hill whatever what's the difference -- shouldn't should be exempt or should not be exempt.
I think they should not be exempted -- get a agent.
But finally and why can't we can't all be exempt and I get rid of I think -- yeah editing features think they raise who's selling this planned.
Doctors aren't selling this plan because they can't sell this plan because people know what to joke so who's selling it celebrities are selling it.
My feeling is if celebrities are selling the cycle Jon Bon Jovi and whatever when President Obama needs surgery Oprah should do -- they say hey.
If the American that -- -- as a favorite.
Aren't we talked about -- those are those are we -- talking about capital now let's talk about the impact of health care on new.
On families and let's see whether or not you're getting a fair DL let's listen to the HHS director on premiums.
-- The president.
And promised that will lower premiums I'm quoting up to 2500 dollars for typical.
Family so they will see a 2500 dollar I I can't say we're not releasing the information is apparently you can understand -- Citizens are concerned.
On what is going to be a very large expense for their families that they we can even have any sort of prediction in terms of where this is going to be after several years of so called implementation.
I actually think that predictions.
Proven not to be very useful.
Somebody to give you some obamacare around -- -- Bob -- and it can't I.
I don't -- -- in my -- -- -- lots USA today health care cost for the first time in twelve years of gunned down then yeah.
And I wonder why I know -- sent me an article listen to refute the -- -- That have they have gone down and they're why -- them.
But but it's important you can't just say the editing is great about it -- great health care costs got about.
-- across the gun down because the economy sucks that's why health care costs and -- healthcare premiums the insurance that you pay gone up.
So there's a disconnect that's why you have to have more competition in the systems you can deal with the -- It's -- great -- this guy the guy you can buy car insurance.
Across state lines what you can't buy.
You can get -- I only got to -- when he talks.
In fact it.
-- track I've never thought so let's throw it out to the table it's the typical of the iPod pocket he can buy a car insurance and health and life insurance across state lines but not.
You should you buy health measures roughly in line it wouldn't that drive cost down to work in the kid that his goal -- -- -- need to change this bill one is that -- -- seconds tort reform and that -- -- -- medical -- tax.
And the port isn't promising to keep -- docket at.
Basically there's of what is left and just their way all the -- -- highest.
Investment I don't know if you sell your house if you sell -- house for more than five or -- 400000 dollar house.
But the profit bother the sales price above your tax would to present to you could use sort of problem that Hispanic -- when you go through brown bomber Eric L -- and I and that its creators don't even -- Well there's this -- bill on the president's -- -- -- everybody keeps talking about Lucy some concrete examples of where did haven -- well what I -- -- pulled out of Georgia yesterday not to insurers out of Georgia yesterday because they're not going to be able to.
They're not a -- compete.
And then -- without -- that's the.
Ultimate our government says they should all -- all -- -- -- insurance are insurers are saying though.
In the open arms of government says don't worry will take care of you -- that Steele think the.
Many insurance company to go anywhere they can't make money.
That's what they've been about they are that they are the single biggest disorders of health care costs because they charged word freely and -- The government in a problem -- Hundred government and so it's not if you didn't have the government involved in -- in in medical coverage or met at any health coverage.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I would like to have a free market where people know what the pain including many.
-- your -- -- -- for second stand this for second so if the government says here's your premium here.
And insurers have to charge this -- just meet their costs where you gonna go Bob you're gonna go to the lower.
Assuming that -- the future.
They start -- -- that's -- cost these guys have been ripping people walk this tragic levers of government let it rip this off well that that's a part of a true.
But insurance coverage or -- They're there -- exempt from antitrust laws for a reason they colluded with each other and they set prices.
Arbitrarily and they make a huge amount of money for not much of the give back.
Okay make a buried very small crawl come how to get there to what is it does after they say Greg but they.
You can look at it and actually run a business that is profitable unlike the government -- -- who who who who are in these insurance companies -- human beings they make a living -- families.
All the government doesn't suck.
Them dry is reaching just -- your tired you know the bed move back up there -- a good government.
So again now.
I had a couple of comments number wine.
What is up with the Wonder Woman cops on the IRS that he does seem taken a lot of night -- -- cops are bigger than bowling but yeah I -- like this in the shirt.
That's what happens I don't know about that does -- -- let's talk about free stuff you can get for your near me in fact not one and two maybe three you know -- not on welfare did you guys hear about the story not.
OK so national review writer Gillian K now -- that that she got three shiny new Obama -- I would like just one does this -- as.
As Nike didn't need that what do you think of the sort of.
So here's the deal with that she went and I downloaded the application for an Obama phone just to see what it would look what it looked like -- and I have you found some level.
I was actually gonna try again when I realize I'm not gonna perjure myself to do it but you have to have certain levels of income and or be uncertainty it's.
Assistants like -- -- whatnot but what they thought she got three of what they found was Wall Street Journal did get a piece about three months with a from that.
Of the people with these lifeline phones.
Couldn't prove that they fell in one of those categories or refused -- which means -- it's wrought with waste fraud -- abuse you have to wonder.
If it's an Obama -- two billion dollar program.
What about food stamps a hundred billion dollar program Bob claims it didn't -- I.
This -- -- -- -- defrauded the -- is terrible but if you wanted to win like one -- she didn't know I wanna I wanna give it to people needing take away from people go go like this than a quarter.
That -- do you see the problem without the -- and that I got acceleration problem -- sound as -- reason for our pipeline was an important thing -- people who really needed help could have a line directly -- -- flat I think you have more people that are not using it in the -- it will actually it really is -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm telling -- this is a problem but this is.
If this is all says Hispanic it's not just one isolated case without the -- with food stamps as well they need to really.
Get in there and clean it up but -- otherwise they're being very frivolous the taxpayer dollars and not caring that that's fraud and that there's abuse of these privileges which only hurts the.
He brought retribution government regrettably from the time we started so that makes it -- and you know -- doesn't it.
I'm more of it make it bigger I don't know arsenal I think -- -- more ways you have to have more solid program Britain.
Right and it if the world was a poker table America's become that sucker.
That you invite over to clean them out late -- Davies now magnet for fraud and spammers and -- the pursuit of happiness.
Is now the pursuit of your wallet -- the old crazy invisible hand.
Visible hand was a self regulating nature of the market place the invisible hand is now in your back pocket.
And it is the government because the government is now a target for spammers that's of this before it united states of US ABS stands for scam and everybody's in on it.
And that kind of an idea and you understand.
That you -- in premarket -- -- -- what the problem is it's not -- sensible that pres Obama so arrogant about this he doesn't even trying to hide the hand yes as we're gonna -- it -- yet -- -- that you go around accounts that take you make L because -- really law -- hands behind your business when they ripped up you will mortgages.
What law when he talked about every out more visit -- First of what it is the young.
I community reinvestment act Bob yes that was the that was what caused OK I heard what you said but there's not one of these idiots -- taken for what they're gonna.
Bob -- -- Atlanta -- -- holder prosecuted about any evidence that should not bail he should that -- don't get me started on.
All you've got to defend these if I could I would us.
I ahead on my horror.
