We're back where doctor Marc Siegel and psychotherapist doctor Robbie blood -- I wanna ask you both.
Is that your impression that the -- inch us secretary was -- valuing.
-- with her comments basically putting it into an economic equation.
Now I and and also we don't know that what you say I was actually tripled.
So I think she was just trying to support her position.
And she didn't do it very well it was a clumsy attempt.
And I don't think it was very powerful at all and it seemed like she was struggling with how to explain her position.
I think -- overall part of what's wrong with obamacare which is attempts to justify an expansion of insurance which is what this is under government mandated government regulation.
