It's kind of a big deal Arkansas Democrat congressman Vic Snyder voted yes on -- -- the first go around.
But as undecided just go around congress and we're really.
Oh well I'm unbelievable for -- -- we have seen words yet we haven't seen the scoring.
You know I never like to make a final commitment we actually see words on paper and have a chance for you look at it in the visual -- -- -- look at and all that.
Analysts all around the country look at it we're not at that point -- all over I think we're gonna close all right now it.
You -- -- it did I believe you're retiring from congress is that right.
Well my wife does not let me use the word retires as we have four boys three and under so I've got to change umbrella and desist.
They just became I'm I'm not -- -- became too painful leave these for babies in Arkansas every week and with the schedule this wasn't working very well my.

Well let's announcement.
On it -- and -- -- once that your new -- all right so.
Yeah you're gonna really even as that was I know your family commitments and that's a big one.
You know but today they -- do which you could see this tidal wave of banks at any incumbent and you just want to get out.
No I mean I recognize -- had had a it was going to be a robust election year.
But do little where factored in was I knew that he was an arkansas' -- I wasn't down in my office here.
You know calling for donations -- -- around the district late into the night I would have trouble and that just meant more time away from kids that was the factor.
I would live like to be in -- -- -- this thing I think these issues are so important whether it's health care or energy or.
The direction our foreign policy going whatever it is I'd like to be meticulously.
We'll be the best like -- -- as a former member.
But but but don't look you know let me ask congress -- DiNardo will wherever and however you go on this and -- but.
And it's -- -- -- -- -- very tough time getting I guess the 260 votes she's gonna need right now because with folks like you retiring and others looking do.
Protect themselves because they don't want to retire or leave -- -- to see.
She's already looking at 25 confirm no vote Democrats.
That's not even considering Hispanic caucus have thousands member are.
And not for this so we're back up to around thirty to 33.
You get about 35 game over.
Here's the situation -- You know -- I look at this whole thing is beginning formally for me was in November 111 a couple of days that Bill Clinton was elected when -- ran -- him in Little -- in the state capital is that I would help with health care.

-- really worse than -- you know.
This nearly twenty year wait.
Do like do I think this was good tonight I think that we have to do something bid.
We can't pick and choose the things we like -- -- -- difficult once I'm here in people under members both Republican Democrat site.

The insurance companies will have to raise their rates sky high because it will still be so -- Americans -- -- only two out of three Americans are saying right now we think you should start and stretched as we think what you've got as a pilot you know what.
What does that senate.
I do not believe that that's the numbers now when you look at the different.
Parts of the plan they have good support.
And it what I think will happen is we'll get this bill out -- actual words in scoring okay and we'll have a week or so to really examine it it'll it'll will be we will have learned.
From what is that the debate -- -- period last year on your challenge and other all right and -- we will move forward and I think that.
We don't like what they're hearing as time goes by may have the most a game like small business.
All right terrorism and look at those boys and -- remaining months in office be well served very good singing.
Presented by congress and congress and Snyder all right so.
