Joining us now to talk about that much -- what the legislative branch can do to prevent this law.
From being fully implemented to medical doctors in their own right -- only senator John Barrasso and Texas congressman Michael Burgess general -- -- program.
Ravenous right senator what about the -- was talk about Mike Lee Ted Cruz Rand Paul Marco Rubio and yourself.
You would like you believe it's constitutional that you can be funds.
Well I think it's important that we -- find this I don't think that goes far enough but I co sponsored.
Ted Cruz is bill to de fund the health care law.
But remember -- and there are twenty taxes that are increased as part of this law and sixteen of them are already being collected.
So we have to rip this thing out by the roots and that goes with not just the funding it.
But also -- feel repealing all of the other parts of the -- well congressman your thoughts.
So on in your league and you talked about the people talked about.
Forty repeal would be funding bills that congress has.
Has taken on actually seven of those of past -- been signed into law by the president so.
It actually it's bit by bit we have been eroding this we're coming up to a pivot point on the thirtieth of September.
With the funding for the federal government runs out has to be re up the next day open enrollment period the -- -- -- period occurs of the exchanges I would submit to you this is not going to be working by October 1 and oh by the way on September 15 or thereabouts.
People in my state of Texas will begin to see what their actual rate -- to purchase a health care in those exchanges and there is there's going to be some sticker shock.
Me ask you senator about the the president he unilaterally.
Decided even though it's the law of the land that he was gonna unilaterally decide that they were knocked his gonna.
The lay the employer mandate not the individual mandate.
Doesn't have to go through congress that we have a system of checks and balances and coequal branches of government doesn't have to go to congress -- that.
-- I believe he absolutely does I would like to.
Delay -- actually repeal all of those mandates specifically the individual mandate that says everybody in the country has to -- Government approved insurance what people wanted to Health Care Reform when I -- as a doctor is.
Affordable care and access to care and people get neither.
Under this health care under this health care law which is why unions are bailing on this they've come out against the president.
So many Democrats have spoken out against it you've had Democrats in the house -- And to extend.
This delay of the employer mandate by another year as well as -- individual mandate.
This is unraveling.
And it's not just Republicans it's its independence it's Democrats it's unions joining even this state.
Of Massachusetts the Democrats there.
Have put in for a waiver so they don't have to live under the health care law and the other reason to defund this is that the city of Detroit which is bankrupt.
May wanna I wanna find some of their bailout by dumping people want to obamacare and the funding stream.
Congressman there are some of your colleagues that seem.
Timid they think maybe this is the wrong strategy.
I had a debate earlier this week with Karl Rove.
And he wants he's thinks it's worse law that was passed in our time.
I agree with him and he said it was it was sold it on predicated on the whole bunch of lies told to the American people.
But he -- strategically should be done differently now after the effort to defund.
I don't every conservative I know wants Republicans.
To defund it so.
Where -- -- your colleagues on us.
And it may literally be the only tool in the tool box to tried.
To try to keep the train wreck from happening and you know what you see the train wreck coming down the track -- and try to do something to keep that from occurring.
The law was never popular it's never it's never enjoyed -- A popular support it's going to get worse when people understand right now you go to health -- dot -- in my state.
And click on a -- boxes to try to see what it's gonna cost you.
In the open enrollment periods and he come to a page that says this -- is empty.
September 15 when people go to that page and see how much a premium the premium has increased.
The young man age thirty nonsmoker right now -- premium.
Average in the state of Texas last January was 360 dollars I guarantee you it's going up and it will be worse in September of -- fourteen.
Leading into the 2014 elections the Democrats we clamored for this thing to be -- -- the repealed by them.
Now back senator to the movement last question at the -- the -- of the employer mandate.
At a cost us twelve billion dollars and maybe in world the trillion dollar deficits that doesn't sound like a lot of money that's a lot of money where I come from.
Well and that's because all of those businesses that work.
The incentives work to dump employees onto the exchange and just pay the fine those fines aren't going to be collected but I will predict to you tonight -- -- That just as we had the fourth of July surprised.
With this delay of the employer mandate.
I will predict you they're going to be additional supply -- surprises coming out.
Because this administration can see clearly that this law is unraveling in front of their eyes.
Guys thank you very much for -- -- appreciate your insight.
