Health -- summit last week you Republicans and Democrats have -- together to hash out the health care bill last week at the Blair House a lot of ideas worth turnaround.
Take a listen.
Let me just make the -- done because we're not campaigning.
The -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And that's believe -- 400 page health here.
Is that right well actually Mr.
President this is the Senate bill along with the eleven page proposal that you put up online bit.
Really I think is a basis for the discussion here the only thing bipartisan.
Will be the opposition.
To the bill I see my friend Lamar.
I have great respect and admiration for your entitled your opinions but -- -- facts.
How many times we heard that sound -- in the last month.
Meanwhile right now we are joined by our own -- and friends health care summit that we have convened plane the politician Virginia representative Eric Cantor.
The attorney is camera holder.
The doctor Fox News medical contributor it's -- A disabled marine veteran and town -- David Hedrick who joins us today from Portland -- let's start with you what do you think of the health -- summit last week.
Get anything accomplished.
No I don't think much was accomplished I think that who -- -- -- -- you scrap the whole thing for some reason Barack Obama seems to think that taking a Democrat.
House bill and adding it to a Democrat senate bill somehow gives you a bipartisan bill and the fact is that it doesn't do that.
All right one of the things I think it Tom Coburn had the idea why don't we have undercover patients.
To control fraud and stuff like that Eric -- your congressman you were in the room at the time that seems like a pretty good idea and then we'll Steve anything.
We can do to try and improve the efficiency in our system of me right now we've got I think they're saying about a 150 billion dollars.
A year associated with fraud in our system so I think doctor programs.
Sort suggestion maybe -- will look at -- -- an -- what do you think.
This I don't think it's not necessarily a bad concept have undercover patients get the critics of the -- going to say well.
Listen you know we're going to now be very nervous about.
-- docks that have become very nervous seeing patients because -- it -- -- a real patient out of a patient.
I don't think that's gonna happen at all the reality is is that they're already using undercover patients.
That issue is that how hospitals and -- -- just practices need to have good compliance programs assurance that doctors are.
-- correctly and the hospital's billing correctly because you also wanna catch errors as well as -- -- -- the fraud as well.
-- -- what do you think.
I think this is the most cockamamie idea I've ever heard you know.
The practice of not -- -- so are we gonna have like federal agents go ahead and might.
Faking it faking injury and see what the doctor what the doctor or nurse this is ridiculous -- you control clothing medicine how to control for you controlled.
Quality control fraud by.
Making sure that doctors don't have interest and laps you control front but he -- -- Mind returning wounded which to me what do they do that now -- a good idea what they.
I think that they should he thinks they should do that but but as far as criminalizing the practice of Madison.
It's a stupid idea and and you have to look at the personal -- how is this going to be implemented it doesn't make -- All right we're gonna continue this and spirited debate straight -- our health care some exactly malpractice reform.
Since nobody else seems to be doing that so we will continue in just a minute but first.
