Tool months is too little Republican Texas congressman -- Michael Burgess -- no vote if it's.
We're coming out tonight on just a couple month extension so Ben what congressman because I guess there there are many agree -- -- -- what.
Well deal's first -- thanks for having me on.
We sent the senate to pay a good proposal wasn't great but it was a good solid proposal last weekend for the life of me I cannot understand.
Why if this was so important to -- it would not have taken up that bill.
If they had problems with a specific paid for.
-- deal with that but to come back with two month extension two months tax policy.
Here's what's heartbreaking for me that doctors to get a two month extension on their Medicare payments.
They've already gotten an email from the center for Medicare Medicaid Services today saying we're likely to hold -- -- the first of January.
Neil let's -- the Democrats 220 can we ran against that.
So there's no way in the world I can be for this thing.
That the senate sent back now it's Pacific crest is Jason -- your colleagues seem to agree -- van den where do we stand the -- essentially gone.
But it assuming you reject this two month effort tonight and that and I guess when we won't know we -- -- but they're dead then.
