Okay congressman Thaddeus from Paterson says the 245 summit is eight sham wow -- were -- Republicans should not go wow well let's ask him kind of would.
Who just like what -- it sham wow infomercial -- to get that by the way.
Well we keep hearing that this is going to be a stage production is -- -- -- an infomercial for one side or the other.
And the public knows.
So to try to bring attention effective is -- a real some of it's not a real negotiation going -- generally an unfortunate misuse of congressional time and energy.
The -- shamrock in the minds of the wildly popular product that is sold on an informer.
-- OK so you think it's as if Russia as Accutane who once separately think Republicans should boycott and am -- right that's I think the Democrats should to think about it.
As Rasmussen has a pull -- the shows that only 21% of Americans think they're being governed with their consent.
What does that mean I saw that does and I and quite get that I had that read it from rearrest we have ears of the new -- And what it means is the people are -- -- the cynicism about their representative institutions actually functioning as their servants trying to do the right thing and go forward.
They think the politicians and government has a special interest.
And what they're very afraid of is that more politicking more posturing more preening as opposed to actually admitting either you can agree to something if not take -- to election.
And get down of the issue the economy or something where you can agree.
Within the paradigm of this as -- -- -- -- summit.
What you have are two fundamentally divergent views of -- health care should be done.
They can't be papered over they can't be taking -- over here and sprinkling -- -- -- ability fundamentally disagree with.
And I think that everybody knows that.
So -- give up.
-- no we don't have a M I'll infomercial -- -- hour infomercial and tell the public that somehow this is going to do anything except.
Clinton -- -- disputed -- the viewpoint we wouldn't everyone's been accusing everybody -- things and Republicans say that the Democrats won't let them participate the Democrats say the Republicans that I have now and obstructions wanted it.
And we -- -- -- transparent everything's done behind closed doors and and nobody's talking anybody at what I talked to perfect that talked of Democrats Republicans LC perfectly nice and interested yet we gotta get the sense usually -- Davis at least now -- -- -- your feet to the fire and say.
Talk to each other.
Name name name there is something that can be accomplished and maybe that at least forgot at least talk to -- -- -- -- wants.
There are lot of things that people in congress work on all the time or create friendships that are built up and things get done.
The problem that we have the Greta is this is one where there are fundamentally principle disagreements and one of the things you do in politics or in any type of life.
His you can have fundamental disagreements with friends the beauty of our free republic is where the congress has a fundamental disagreement there's an election -- -- -- -- Or compromise.
It's compromises -- -- that's suggested that said that this may cover activities at least that's something people should talk of this.
This really is like a dozen Republicans say.
We want reform Democrats say we want reform they don't seem to talk to each other maybe there is some common ground that maybe not everyone's gonna get -- wish list may we can get some improvement.
-- one needs a common principle and a common goal to try to achieve a compromise.
On some issues obviously congress has that but -- -- when you to fundamentally diametrically opposed versions of what health care should look like in the one underlying principles that the government.
Can't control the supply of health care to reduce the costs and expand coverage.
And the other is that we need to free market patient centered system that will reduce costs and hopefully expect cost -- divergent and they can't be bridge to papered over with what in.
-- here again is not sometimes it's immaterial type stuff from -- Played out we suppose that the Republicans did do -- even the Democrats did as you suggest -- boycott this President Obama dines alone tomorrow.
House -- playoff than a -- year it is a scenario.
I think that what we've seen for fourteen months is that the Republican Party is not the problem in this we've been and distinct minority voters.
-- not like how we govern they punished us except that we have to redeem ourselves.
But the Democrats have a total control until election Scott Brown.
The recent health care is in passing is the public and centrist Democrats did not want it to pass and so -- -- -- so what would happen.
So I think that the first step has to be whether the Democrats are going to look -- Do we want to operate on -- fundamental principle based upon the centrist Democrats centrist Republicans and most importantly something palpable Republican all we keep hearing from the public is Cuba's specific individual items.
In a helpful way that you can agree on as opposed to.
Again a fundamental difference of opinion of -- there should be a massive comprehensive reform.
We're targeted ameliorated steps to make sure -- people can get better off if they have ten -- -- it -- -- Not going to be signing constituent letters.
Watch but I'm -- much hockey game now but I got to work tomorrow.
Serious -- a lot of you know watch that's part of my just mail doesn't find itself on Washington and -- on my office.
Yeah thank you.
