He said he was about pundits you didn't but you know it some in some ways I'm a pundit but I also share their view.
That say that we can't defund obamacare but I also want to point out.
I spent more hours on the floor fighting against Obama care.
And then I have ever on any issue for 25 days we fought we fought even until the morning of Christmas Eve.
And to somehow -- -- it.
This somehow saying well these these guys -- you know they're not against Obama they don't -- or not I -- on the floor when it really matter when I thought we could beat it.
And we didn't.
Because they had the votes just as they have the votes now so I will take a backseat to no one in my -- in 2012.
I spent too much traveling this country saying we've got to repeal and replace obamacare.
So somehow now because we see that we can't define the Obama care which is there is not the votes for two.
That's never -- -- -- perhaps the -- so it's not as long as we don't have 67 votes to override a present presidential -- So I would love to those just like which time now senator Chris is pardon me it was a waste of time -- -- -- -- -- -- -- wants to do that and that and that.
Fire -- the troops that's fine with me.
But it to him yes sure I like him -- -- -- out to dinner a week or so ago I admire her hand there's not it's not but.
I couldn't disagree with -- sort of comment again I would -- I have not used it and by the way it looks exporting from my editorial in the Wall Street Journal but the point is that.
I have a very good relationship wouldn't.
I admire him and we work together.
But we have a significant disagreement that doesn't mean we have to be disagreeable.
But when people are compared to.
Prior and to the Nazis in World War II.
Over the issue of health care then I have to say wait a minute that she just over the line.
And look my family fought in World War II -- not a -- yours.

We're not going to succeed because we don't have the -- she what's -- and so we're those 88% of the American people say.
They do not want the government shut -- that's done.
That's -- sister Nancy that looks more likely now if -- -- for a limited amount of time senator Warner was saying that triangle -- here a little while ago saying that indeed it looks likely now.
I hope not I hope we can still you think it hurts Republicans if it comes to -- So I know that it does I saw this movie before 1995.
When we shut down the government.
Cost a 1000000400 million and the American people literally rebuild because Americans don't like government.
But they don't want to shut down.
I would quit if Smart way of going after this is picking apart -- can't we say repeal and replace.
The medical to tax on medical devices we should have hammered that we should demanded.
An amendment on that on a number of other aspects of obamacare that have already been abysmal failures.
What do you think I respect this evening same respect resign I'm not trying to guess verified yet but do you think that there is a battle because a lot of people say.
Well John McCain you know he's the old guard these guys of the new guard he didn't get what.

Want to shut down the government.
And that getting behind defines you only option and it's not much playing with fire is and isn't that most people.
80% of the American people don't want the government shutdown.
As it because of Obama -- -- that kills their town hall meetings and get raucous new until we just need to sit -- -- -- the government.
That infectious not it's not fair to the veterans it's not fair to the people who get Social Security it's not fair to our men and women in the military it's not fair.
To our constituents.
To shut down the essential functions of government.
And the most Americans share that view.
But I will continue to fight I will continue to do everything I -- to repeal and replace obamacare I am convinced that it's a total failure.
But to say that this is the issue when we do not have the votes if we won the election in 2012.
But we could -- -- -- -- when -- straight.
We'll sure listen I have I won't take some time how long I had to stand on my feet a couple of times a long time ago far away at that.
No one -- and Senator John McCain.
