President Obama repeatedly saying this bill has no pork or your marks but Oklahoma's that are Tom Coburn just came up with a list that seems to prove this village full port.
A few of the programs that he's pointing to look include the following.
Five and a half billion dollars to make federal buildings green 198.
Million dollars toward redesigning.
And furnishing the Department of Homeland Security headquarters we thought that was out last week right.
Yeah get back in that at one point 2000000001.
Summer jobs for youth.
-- senator Jon tester is a Democrat from Montana member of the Senate banking committee.
And here's my guest now from Capitol Hill senator we certainly appreciate your time we have Mike pence from Republican on last hour.
Other congressman out of Indiana so Europe this -- -- and good morning to you.
I've stopped doing great thank you very much I cannot shake the truth out of this whole health care three.
How to get there.
Who put it in there.
Why is it in this bill senator.
Well I mean.
I'll just tell you that I am not sure is the way you guys see -- okay of them I'll be the first one I don't want the government make in my health care decisions I don't think anybody.
Around the country wants wants that this well I think what we want.
His 21 century health care system similar to what the VA -- so that people don't get treated for multiple problems when you know because we have we have the records to show that you know that the work been done.
But truthfully what this what this bill is about it's about jobs it's about what people to work it's about turning the economy around.
And and and get people to work again you know I think Erica what's got me there and I don't mean in Iraq don't want to give you get a chance to make your point you're just like we did last hour.
We -- Republican counterpart but you said you don't like this so what's a billion there.
And I guess people even answer that one did you know what was in there.
I can tell you that if if if that's a big if if there's language and this is the government's going to make my health care decisions we'll get it out.
I don't believe that.
But I'll look for luckily didn't report to rehab period part of -- is report -- we think that the consumers pretty well protected I think what this meant to do.
This move us into the 21 century for health care records okay so you.
Are you gonna vote for this -- you get -- went down Arlen Specter told us last hour clarification is needed he says is a bad idea you're saying the same thing.
I have to sit there it is a bad idea if it's there it's about that's about idea but the fact is.
Is it that can be fixed it will be fixed if it's in there will be it'll be changed and made better.
And made made workable.
And then the bottom line is that put people back to work where you can you talk about jobs -- is the health care revision is is that stimulus tip.
All I think it is limited absolutely I think over the long term it's going to help the economy and a big big way.
To do it does it provide jobs.
Does -- provide jobs.
What it does that provides people that they would go to work without having multiple.
Ailments treated in in a variety of different ways that helps people when they go to the doctor save them money so they can reinvest it in other ways in the economy.
And keeps him in the job force are you absolutely it is it creates jobs those so let it rest -- this -- if the government's telling the doctors what they can and can't treat him on whom they can and cannot treat.
At how does that create jobs I'm just a bit confusing trying to understand what it is this.
I'm the guy who said the Patriot Act had no business happening because of its intrusion into privacy.
I can guarantee you that.
If if those that languages and I'll be the first one to step up the late yesterday.
Hold it I don't want the government make in my health care decisions that should be a decision made between the patient and the doctor.
And part of the problem the health care system right now is that the GM rose.
Get involved in the middle so we don't want to replace those with the government what we do want to do though.
Is that -- tanking economy around and creates jobs because there's there's a couple numbers it that the report.
Seven point six that's the level -- unemployment rate three point six million.
That's the number of jobless over half of which have been lost in the last three months so we need turn the economy around the big big way that's what's truly important here.
The language there will be fixed it why are you there okay all right well -- at the not a whole lot of time to do it because the debated starting on the floor of the Senate we expect to -- probably.
But in the noon eastern hour so global -- we'll take you for your word.
And we'll see whether or not that provision is director taken -- entirely center thank you.
John they have very much good to be here you got a good to have you on today Ocalan US continue.
