And in the impact segment tonight will -- government actually shut down next week simple question.
-- Washington congressman Henry -- are Democrat from Texas and from Long Island new York Republican congressman Peter King.
So what do you think's gonna happen congressman king.
-- I still think this can be worked out and we shouldn't start these negotiations weeks ago.
Unfortunately we followed actually people followed -- Ted crews down a dead end street.
But I still think what's what -- tomorrow is the yet that the house Republicans will probably I'm discussing how we will probably send back.
Legislation to the senate with some slight changes made it and then hopefully then it can be worked out.
-- about what they're forming about what those changes might -- because that's obviously the essence of this whole thing so it's if the at the house votes tomorrow.
And and on changes what would those changes -- and.
Not a sure there would be this is gonna have to be between the leadership because again.
We have people and I applaud you will not settle for anything less than the total dismantling or -- funding of Obama -- I don't have some very hard for us yet -- -- eighteen votes.
I think Harry Reid figures he's holding that the college right now so it's gonna have to be something.
Which is significant -- -- That we can get 208 CD the Republicans are getting Democrats to join us I really how does your work -- and they tell -- it's a just evaluation.
Now -- and -- -- you see how do you see -- coming down this weekend.
Well first of all we do have to find the common ground to work this out and I know we can.
First of all look at what what's happening is that -- everybody's -- concentrated on the health care.
And that two extremes are -- one extreme is saying repeal all of the fun the whole thing.
It's not going to happen.
And the other side there are some people are saying don't change one single word of the health care law.
That's not the way the process works if you look at it we have changed seven thinks of the health care law we can do more to.
To make those changes and focus on making sure that we have a.
Budget all right so you all well and has a Democrat you're willing to compromise is find some ground I think the best thing would be what -- said today.
That people who wanted to opt out as they've given a lot of corporations and a lot of other Kennedys the option -- you don't have to do it this year will rule you know he via.
Twelve more months to get it together or whatever and that we would see.
How the basic obamacare thing is gonna come down but you would have the option not to participate the American citizen would.
I think that that would be a good compromise and then the people vote in 2014.
For a new congress and they would say yes or no on obamacare does that make sense to everybody congressman king.
-- -- -- Since we I would vote for that in a minute when I was a little -- do I went down there and -- what do you guys initiate is that sounds like an annual -- Bill don't you put me -- require -- room we -- resolve this in five minutes or less than that probably.
But unfortunately that is how -- of people on both parties and right now he agencies of this deadline approaching.
That they always have a veto power over what happens it's I think it's important but there are there isn't anything like we just allowed them.
On the table see if that were put on the table.
A by the speaker of the house or something else that you give Americans a year they don't want it.
We'll give them a year and then we'll see how it all comes down and they'll be a vote.
And then at everybody I don't think he could vote against that the congress -- you.
I think -- Well keep in mind that -- Supreme Court has already looked at this keep in mind that Mitt Romney ran on repealing the whole thing is.
There are seven changes we've made to the health care law lets look at other things but let let's not hold hostage.
The the -- -- a little -- -- and.
Or do you agree with Manson and senator Manson from.
West Virginia and congressman -- would you vote for congress -- king says -- what.
That did you delay the individual mandate for a year cellular -- could go and couldn't go in October 1 to -- right up but the ones and all they get a twelve month reprieve to see how it all shakes down and to let the people vote.
November 14 would you vote for that.
But this Tom I don't know I don't know what else is going to be part of -- but I do want to sit down.
And look at wobbly on me come on congressman I I would you vote I am telling you that we need to look at the whole picture and see what we can repeal.
And what we cannot fight.
I think that would be the -- everybody and understand it I think it would pass.
Now congressman king you've been pretty brutal toward -- -- I mean.
Luck cruise I think is sincere when he does he thinks is a destructive.
Bill this PI and -- selected items.
You don't you think is a phony.
Yes I certainly don't try to -- -- -- he's been saying all summer all we have to do in the house -- we voted to defund it.
The would be yes that would defund it for the yet he knew all along that Harry Reid and the Democrats -- -- that he knows of -- Obama would never agree to what and yet he was acting as if so what -- we voted for this house.
What -- we know we're never happened John -- -- would never happen.
Well we should've been doing what you're talking about now we could restarted so a few weeks ago.
Negotiating parts of the obamacare bill the week door should be modified or removed and taken out.
And the fact is.
Ted Cruz was insisting and his work -- people unfortunately in my conference Republican conference insisting on this.
It is that his way or highway there was no alternative allowed.
And he knew this was a -- -- -- was a fraud and the persistent I'm pushing it so -- no patients describe at all and we made a tremendous mistake in allowing him to get out front and set policy for us.
What are you say about that congressman Cuellar.
-- personal appearance Peter King and I can work this out like we did and Homeland Security so many times.
I'm just enjoying watching the Republicans have -- have this conversation.
No that's kind of sadistic isn't an outcome no no no doubt about.
I feel like you -- in The King and I yet but I get out saint Peter and I could work this out it's -- -- and I believe you but I think usually do you know what I just said it would do attend their matches but now there.
That's the way that is the way that I think.
90% of the American people would get behind gentlemen we appreciate your time very much tonight.
