The only guy might change that -- is nonsensical game of the legislative ping -- it's not -- -- I was in Washington.
I voted to the government -- aren't you yes now you you know these things.
From the inside much better than the likes of me and everybody watching at -- to look I think to.
Ordinary people who have not -- -- that it -- look nonsensical because we know the result of this.
We know that is gonna go to the senate we know that they gonna send it back and say no no good at all let's try again.
That seems like -- two ordinary people but it you're saying it's.
No it's not they are there's a lot of political reasons why this is happening with it and in this way.
And of course the senate will probably send it back what they really need to do.
Then everyone could probably possibly vote for this on both senate have house side is delaying it for one year it's not ready yet.
It's not in in Washington when you promulgate a bill.
It has to -- This is not right yet it needs a lot of work and -- be funding it doesn't help.
He tried to help the people who need to rewrite the bill so it makes sense.
You have too many people who have been up by the precedent they've been suspended from having to learn to live by the law.
That's a real problem but hasn't.
The public and you'll -- -- and defund the government so when we voted 22.
Shut the government down.
We had already passed quite a number of appropriations bills -- So those agencies were not going to be shut down in this case there are no appropriations bills that have been passed which means yes the government.
All of the government.
Could shut down and that's a risk I would not have taken if I were on the floor of the house today and -- your view of what we've seen it won't -- policy.
With the crazies it's taken over the Republican Party and if our Republican moderate Republicans -- -- you what we -- wasn't she was in the house and then say you know not -- moderate people and John McCain in the Sonny got.
People like John Boehner where -- John Boehner who I feel sorry for.
Because this guy can't corral his own caucus saying what are you doing and he had no choice but for this legislation up.
But this is not something that he wanted.
Because they know I assume you were there in 95 I was working down there in 95 you know who's gonna get the blame for this since the when the government if the government shuts down it's not going to be Barack Obama.
It's going to be the Republican Party yet.
And the old little -- yeah show that the accident and -- the Republicans are beginning but the problem -- -- quickly the problem is that the Republicans are holding their own party hostage don't care so much about my independents out there there were enough primaries in the right.
You know that's what's happened the Republican parties that they stop being a national party.
-- being the party of march -- congressional -- or not marginal very safe Republican congressional districts that are really worried about -- their own hides from a primary and they are about expanding their brand.
I mean look at New York State look at where you you know in the northeast is no more Republican party for -- Safer because of it.
The the chair of the Senate Budget Committee.
Senator Patty Murray Democrat of course.
Said today didn't Walt Walt the Republicans in the hasn't done much is -- essentially said.
Was quote this is quoting some of them are -- -- -- and irresponsible exercise -- Tea Party.
And I think fair.
I'm not so irresponsible.
And but and I wouldn't say it's pandering to the Tea Party but they are allowing there's -- have to remember you have a lot -- of Tea Party senators and Tea Party house members.
Those they are the people who elected them want a voice and it is allowing them to have a voice.
I agree too late night it's really tough to be -- John Boehner shoes right now.
But he's allowing the Tea Party people and the people who voted for them to have a voice this isn't democracy that's okay to do that.
What is not okay.
Is to keep haranguing this thing and banging it back and forth -- from senate the house like a shuttle cock it needs to be.
And it needs to be addressed -- needs to be addressed about it.
Is the fact that it's unfair bill it doesn't get everyone constitutionally.
Equally if it is -- People can pick and choose we already see -- large corporations are making a choice of they're not -- not funding.
Medical care for people who we know that this CM house has said it's going to cost us over ten years 621.
Additional dollars who's paying for that.
Week we forced slums in the middle class -- are having to pay more taxes.
Because of this -- it used to be rewritten the other thing people don't realize is that the information that you.
Put in to an exchange to to get.
Health care insurance if you go to an exchange is automatically linked to the IRS and you lose privacy.
Which is something very a lot of people -- very much concerned about right now -- -- it does it need to be completely rewritten.
Who know and then you look here's the problem again for the Republican Party I think -- this and substance aside you had.
It was passed by both houses of the conference it was signed into law by the president was out helping the Supreme Court and we have an election.
Where Obama care was a big issue and the president got reelected.
So what does that tell you about where the American people aren't -- what does -- tell you when the Republicans are trying to fight the war in 2010.
When people have moved on move on the president's not married -- bill it's not gonna happen even of both houses did it.
They don't have veto proof majority will veto any attempt to delay this bill defining it as non starter delaying as a non starter he cents a so anything -- the Republicans are doing right now is grandstanding.
And it's misleading their own.
Voters it's misleading their own base because married Ted Cruz is very irresponsible and doing this he is convinced.
People in his own party that this is a possibility.
-- people are going out there demanding this to happen you will not happen.
I'm sorry you lost the election on this they lost you know what's gonna happen is they do this -- -- seats next year.
Because of their interview there anyway but the government shut down so any kind of attempts to get more house seats to repeal the legislation.
-- sent -- -- to get repealed legislation will not happen without their undermining their own cause.
After I I just what -- I just want to say one thing about this election.
People did not know what this bill -- they did not understand.
What it was going to be.
No one knew what it was so.
-- and they were -- to.
-- a lot of people especially a lot of the unions are extremely unhappy with this.
And they'd backed Obama and there are people who voted for Obama and other stuff which they bill that they don't like.
You all right it's OK and wrap it up -- -- I.
