So nice to see you sir thank you -- do it well we're in the US senate -- you were in the house after Saturday's activities.
-- -- Sometimes the I don't -- Saturday night I love that -- they're they're right there we'll fight that he next thing.
It's on like gang warfare over there you -- goes against Ayers -- -- will do.
-- was this the house bill.
You could put it back if I'm wrong is it when it gets so again this and it is -- -- I absolutely that's it so yeah happily that because number one.
Moderate state moderate Democrats for -- state Democrats are not gonna vote this bill in the Senate just like they didn't vote for in house there was a reason.
That -- had a forty seat democratic majority bill passed -- to it's.
Moderate Democrats red state Democrats ran away from this bill like it was to plant a -- in dollars in new spending.
500 billion dollars in new taxes 500 billion dollar cut Medicaid.
Medicaid for seniors.
On top of that the government option it was a bill written about liberals or liberals and moderate Democrats -- -- it -- Ran away from like you had swine flu when it gets over to the Senate is gonna meet the same thing.
Is it acts on that because she needs sixty votes to get the -- that the Senate -- -- has promised to filibuster with any bill that has the public option.
Because he knows design the design of that -- -- the public option.
Private sector insurance companies will go out of business nobody can compete with the government the -- will be generously written in terms of benefits.
Politicians never raise premiums and private sector health -- overtime.
We'll go by the waste that goes the government take it all over that's why -- and other moderate Democrats will have no part of the house bill.
The combination of the -- dollars in spending.
500 billion -- tax increase is cutting Medicare -- 500 billion and government option.
Is it political overdose anybody takes that cocktails don't lose their job.
And push senator Lieberman's although is an independent caucuses with the Democrats.
But he's got all the insurance companies in his state a lot of them he's -- yeah.
You know what he's got -- guys a year to that grant.
If this were a good deal.
If this -- really did help lower cost and improve access to health care.
It would pass them more than two there's a pattern in the house all the liberals voted 41 Republican voted for it all moderate Democrats ran away from it.
Because they understood what would happen when it went back home to explain this bill senator Lieberman just represents.
A way of thinking that I think is the -- way of thinking among Republicans and moderate Democrats in the Senate.
In the reason that once challenged my analysis that is dead on arrival is because it is.
We think senator Harry Reid the majority leader thinks.
This bill and the heat in behind you -- watched -- setting in every morning thinking things.
He knows he's got him.
A monster on his hand.
He understands that there's not that does -- -- the public option again.
Is a -- let the private health care choice.
Do you really wanna put it from the Senate bill that cuts in Medicare about 500 billion dollars senator Nelson from Florida certain things like that no I mean Harry isn't a bad spot what Nancy Pelosi.
She ignored Republicans she dealt moderate Democrats now this was a bill written -- the left for the lamp.
And Harry Reid is it's this thinker prevail that's why it's going nowhere -- there is no way you moderate Democrat blanch Lincoln Bill Nelson.
Mary Landry and Joe Lieberman.
Are gonna vote for this -- because they can explain that column.
This bill stinks and the reason -- things is because it denies Americans the choice they won't.
It takes the government and expands that go role of the government and private sector health care at a time when need be having more -- and more competition.
President Obama the great -- -- of the Capitol Hill on Saturday.
And the Democrats declaring victory and then the celebrate.
And pretty good -- -- -- now that that's behind this house with their take their -- now on snapped.
What do you think.
Well they're trying to create a sense of momentum that doesn't exist.
You can fool some of the people some time but you're not helpful listen you know thoughtful red state Democrats in the voting for this deal.
That there house bill -- and doesn't have a snowballs chance in outlook that's in the Senate.
There -- reasons that moderate Democrats abandoned the bill will be the same reason you can't get sixty votes.
Joe Lieberman just represents one vote they're -- -- people like Joe Bill Nelson included who will not vote for a bill that cuts Medicare about 500 billion.
As a governor options for a private health -- to listen -- a trillion dollars of new money.
That's just not gonna happen plus the tax increases most of its going to be quite the public option and take that out that now that this is what people need them.
-- vote for a bill Lindsey Graham wrote in -- Because what will happen -- it passes the Senate it has to -- -- conference with the house.
So to any senator out there.
He should not vote for a senate bill until Nancy Pelosi promises.
Not to put the public option in conference.
And the president agrees to that is that gonna happen I don't know but I can't since the chances of ours.
Here's what -- -- any bill that the Senate passes will wind up with the public option conference with the house.
Because that's what they want -- single Payer plan this government option is the first step toward.
Universal coverage and government controlled health care.
So no matter what we -- -- descended it has to be conference with the house in that record only requires fifty votes you need sixty votes to pass abilities than it.
But once the house and the Senate compromise on -- -- all you need is fifty votes some merging every Republican every moderate Democrat do not vote for any deal.
Until the speaker of the house promises not to -- the public option in the conference.
Isn't that the current plan I think that's -- current plan is that you -- you do without it with you get the Senate bill about the public option getting conference.
It happens but the house government option and doing it fifteen votes and -- There's the plan and I think that plane is gonna fail because really the sixtieth vote is the American people.
The American people understand what happens when they're private to us when to help when the government gets in the health -- Seniors -- the outraged at their Medicare Advantage program they enjoy today is gonna be cut -- 40%.
In every small businessperson need to speak up and say I can't handle any more taxes and all these taxes -- can be passed on the consumer.
If you want this bill to stop him back speak up speak out call you senator.
At the end of the day they had they planned to get it back in the built in -- conference with the house so I hope the Senate will hold firm.
And next year we'll start over with something it makes sense because what they're trying to do -- in the 2009.
Is to take won six of the economy and turn it upside down.
It won't lower cost it one -- private sector health care choices it will increase -- increase the deficit.
And eventually did government run health care system for everybody that's what's at stake speak up right quick message to the American people.
Stop this deal help us stop this bill call your senators and say we won't healthcare reform.
We don't want the government run health -- and start rationing healthcare we wanna be able to go to our doctor -- our -- -- private insurance anywhere in the country that fits our family's needs.
Don't raise our taxes quick note to speaker Pelosi.
Promise not to put health care the public option in the conference report -- You have basically started a process in the house that will prevent us from reforming health -- your desire to have a single Payer health care system.
Your desire to have the bill written by the left for the left is going to destroy our ability.
To find the program which you've done this hurt the health care reform effort and the president.
This president start over sit -- what people like Ron Wyden and Bob Bennett from.
Two Republican -- one Republican one Democrat.
I'm -- -- -- with seven Republicans and seven Democrats that mandates everyone be covered it allows you to purchase health care in the private sector.
He gives individuals the same tax deductions business gets its revenue neutral there is a way to reform health care -- calls.
And improve access not this bill not this process start over Mr.
