Welcome back to a special edition of the Willis report health care showdown.
On this third and final day of arguments the Supreme Court may be rated throw out more than just the insurance mandate in obamacare.
Many opponents of the law are already claiming victory earlier I spoke with Republican senator John Barrasso also position for hints today.
On how things went.
AG is people at the center of this Obama care movement.
Do they get what they want it to you today.
But the attorney generals have shown great courage and determination over the last two years.
Debt to demand justice in the Supreme Court naturally -- the last couple of days.
Specifically from each of the states the mandates on Medicaid all the extra money that the states -- gonna be made to pay.
It's something that that that the state snow will bankrupt them.
And for every penny they end up having to put into this is money that doesn't go for education and for.
Highways and that's -- tuitions are going up but so many state schools is because of the mandates the unfunded mandates on health care.
-- also talked about the impact on -- they care tell us about that.
Becoming harder under this health care law for seniors to get a doctor and for people and Medicaid.
To get to see a doctor in the president continues to use the words coverage and care.
Interchangeably but they're very different just because you have a card doesn't mean that you're going to be able to get.
Care and I think the president should have been focused more on care but what we know is we go to any town hall meeting -- you asked people do you think that the quality and availability of -- care.
Is gonna go down and they all say yes that's what they believe it's gonna go down.
And -- -- -- end up paying more for your health care they all believe they would also these are broken promises by the president.
Broken promises to the president you've also talked a lot from your perspective as a doctor about what this means.
Well no one should be between a doctor to patient not a government bureaucrat or an insurance company.
Bureaucrat but but I think this health care law is bad for patients it's bad for providers the nurses and the doctors should take care of those patients and it's terrible for taxpayers.
You know this morning democratic get pundits saying that -- you know the failure of obamacare -- -- to be.
Declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court might be the best thing that could happen to the president Woody's -- Well -- would be the might divesting that to happen for the country and for the patients in this country in terms of health -- the what we're seeing in the Supreme Court is you know.
Only one lesson one out of four Americans think they ought to whole uphold this law 69%.
Of Americans said.
They should repeal either part or all of this health care law and that's because.
Remember Nancy Pelosi said first you have to pass it before you get to find out what's -- it.
As more and more people find out what's in it and the mandates that the government can go into your home and demand that you buy a government approved product.
There's something the American people don't believe in.
The American people don't believe and -- the Supreme Court justices themselves this week making clear they had serious questions about the individual mandate and whether it's constitutional.
If this is struck down.
What happens in the wake of that because the private sector is already been mobilizing for an obamacare world.
There are things that we need to do to help make.
Available for patients the care they need from the doctor they won at the cost they can afford.
This isn't it this this Obama health care law there's a few popular.
Portions of that and I think we ought to adopt those and pass them in a bipartisan way and work together in a bipartisan way.
To find out what is really in the best interest of patients as well as for the providers of health care and the taxpayers what would you salvage.
Well that letting people under the age of 26 stay on their parents' insurance I think is very helpful to many families but there -- a cost to that but it what is helpful.
I think people with preexisting conditions we need to find a way to have to help them my -- -- breast cancer survivor she said.
Three operations been through chemotherapy -- we need to make sure people -- those pre existing conditions.
Can -- get coverage so there are things that we need to do.
But to overhaul all of health care in the country does not the way to do it.
