Indiana congressman marlin Stutzman as well as Georgia congressman Tom graves both of whom voted to defund obamacare in the house earlier -- gentlemen what little program.
-- Arizona nadu -- congressman Stutzman how bad would it be if it if it goes and -- full effect.
There is over 610 employees in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
That had their hours cut by Fort Wayne community schools after they've discovered the cost of this was going to be to their particular.
Organization -- over they are cutting -- is.
This is only causing more chaos and confusion as I've talked to mothers who had.
There autistic children.
We're we're kicked off of the insurance programs.
This is just the tip of the iceberg -- -- its only gonna get worse.
What do you think congressman great you've been active and involved in this from the very beginning and at the -- house hold the line.
I know a lot of conservatives are wondering.
What because last week the leadership tried to -- a parliamentary maneuver that would have funded Obama care even though it said defund.
So a lot of conservatives are nervous -- will you guys hold the line and house.
Well -- -- let me let me just say happy birthday to my wonderful wife in -- we will be home soon.
I think today was a very powerful are -- kind of a ha ha ha ha I think -- probably watch but anyway.
It definitely -- got a few tricks up my sleeve there but I think today was just a wonderful day for America as it said it today that.
-- stood firm and showed the showed of sent a very bold statement that we've been listening to the American people.
And that we don't want to shut the government down but we do want to protect.
Our constituents from the harmful effects of Obama -- but really the next step is in the senate and that's for all the focus needs to turn right now.
Because there are some senators in the Democratic Party her -- somebody.
Probably the most important.
Vote in their political career is gonna come up next week and you can look at North Carolina Louisiana.
West Virginia Arkansas Alaska.
Those senators are going to have to look their constituents in the guy and and let them know our.
Are they going away from the clutch of Harry Reid or they -- vote their vote for their constituents and protect them from harmful effect what is your.
Sense though are -- other Republicans in the senate united look I know that Rand Paul is and I know that Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and Marco Rubio.
And I know I'm constantly and they had about fifteen that actually signed -- please propose legislation what about the other.
-- Why would say that they they're very united behind do away with Obama they're stopping Obama -- stopping a harmful effects there's no doubt about that there's plenty of unity there.
And and so as we move into next week I hope that they stay in very strong.
And they have to be hearing the same same reports we're hearing from our constituents and see in the same concern and fear and hurt in the eyes of their constituents have.
I suspect that they will listen very closely to their states -- -- the the folks that they saw.
But we'll we'll say congressman Stutzman let's assume assume that Harry Reid does least threatening to -- they send it back to the house and and then we have a showdown do you sense that house leadership in particular and that the house members Republicans that voted today -- -- -- thirty will stand strong.
Well first of -- -- I would say this is a huge victory for the American people today and the house stood up with the American people.
And is do you funding obamacare.
Because we know the consequences is -- -- -- it is if -- and it it's not a big it's I have victory.
Because in less well that's right hand and take it to the end it's not going to be a victory.
That's right and that's why we have to wait to see what happens in the senate you know all of the different procedural.
Tricks that the senate can play.
Who knows how this plays out and so we're gonna have to wait and see I agree with with senate with congressman grades.
That there are some senators over there who are up for reelection this next election.
Who have not had to vote.
On Obama care in one way or another and this is when it really matters Sean.
This vote really matters and I greatly when we put that in the heat on the Democrats in the senate.
We may find it surprising outcome I think you have a strong message from conservatives hold -- the line.
Hold below and don't break.
And -- this is why you guys were elected this is a moment of truth I think is is a tipping point so.
Guys could just absolutely respect franks' -- thank --
