Why -- the health care and reports today the president will -- a new plan on the Internet come Monday.
That's expected to emerge democratic bills -- the house and the Senate and could be passed with only 51 votes thus -- A Republican filibuster.
The news coming just days before the president's so -- bipartisan summit on health care Tennessee Democrat congress and Steve politics it is indeed a smart move comes into that it.
Good to see you Neil you know -- besides its -- nobody Republican colleagues have been saying.
Lou we're having this bipartisan power next weekend.
His authority crafting his -- Democrats have their -- and and this must all be for shell what do you say.
Well I don't think so I think the bill that needs to be -- -- -- crafted similar to what we're getting and a -- conference committee report.
That this country needs health care no question about it the cost are going up more than any country in the and in the world -- thirty ninth and that the mortality which is criminal.
With the private sector and there needs to be certain controls and certain programs put in to change the way the private Specter -- sectors handling health care where it's gonna break this country.
So but I think the president wants to listen he's reaching out to be about partisanship.
And I hope that the Republicans come and participate with him and I think -- they come up for some reason we get ideas.
I know that the president will respond and he will change the program but he's not gonna start from scratch that we shouldn't do that I don't.
It's a valid point here which are now he wants congress -- but you know years and years ago long hard in the -- I worked at a place where.
My boss called.
All of us -- together because I was an anchor.
And an opponent who want your input on how we're going to streamline costs around.
So I'll give our input.
Won't -- all -- turns out this dude it already agreed on the cuts who's gonna make it was for show and none of -- it is really mattered.
I'm not that they necessarily suited in retrospect we're just anchors and as you know we just read the prompter.
But my point was that what that did he call us and mandating so why do you Republican colleagues are saying why the heck are you going as -- Emmy -- and is already.
Cast in stone.
I don't think this cast this Sonya there there's an amendment process -- the president would love to have a bipartisan bill that's why went to the Republican caucus.
But mostly I think it's pretty copies -- -- trapped inside.
Well he had he needs to because that the Senate and the house haven't been able to come up with a conference committee report I think he needs to be involved.
But I think that the Republicans -- that he came up with ideas -- Republican caucus some of them might be included in the bill Monday we don't.
Can't pre judge what he's gonna present he's.
I can't -- -- is they want it because it's not that I'm all for bipartisanship if you give me an idea I don't consider if you don't I -- so.
It's really not a bipartisan heat and.
Well I think it will be -- -- only one Republican voted for the health care about the last time he voted after their tour and eighteen votes RD up.
And who would there was no support and and in the Senate the Republicans have not come up with reasonable solutions to solve what is a great crisis and.
Carolina your colleagues are a lot of your colleagues -- heck nobody -- than they were before right given.
Some recent elections -- poll numbers I mean they don't want to jump off a bridge to.

But I think no idea colleagues -- -- running candidate -- saudis -- had a hell with these -- How would having -- -- of -- in Virginia in New Jersey.
And -- chief Bernard rallies like that that's just an aberration we're don't want full throttle with this and I always get to give presidents like.
I don't know a bad road runner flight right it just -- -- bill handle edited dropped on all you guys.
Well I think that the people who were concerned or overly concerned I don't think -- other elections portend the that the problems that others have suggested here they're more Republicans not running for re election the Democrats people are upset with the process in the process has been.
Perverted by the 51.
Then -- that the sixty vote majority needed in the Senate reconciliation is -- the Republicans did many years.
You're saying we're here on the second caucus you you're you're set records Phillies is the way to go.
A -- -- is the way to go.
Forty year old senator Bill Frist former Republican majority leader grateful position and -- -- Tennessee has said that that's something has been done before -- it's legitimate.
So you say exactly what you guys Canada writes is that the -- president -- you with a Republican the Republican dinner for tax breaks and -- -- -- -- I don't know yet.
Jazz versions -- -- -- there aren't any it's part art part to pundits and go back to the -- fathers as they wanted to see our majority rule congress OK so you're telling me on this health care thing.
God is this filibuster vote -- you a simple majority.
And wham bam thank you ma'am you're gonna have your health -- deal it.
