-- being watched very closely we can find out tomorrow once and for all whether or not Obama's health care law is constitutional.
Supreme Court is set to release the ruling imminently and if they do overturn it after today's fed news.
It's really could kick Obama when he's down there -- gonna bring in John Stossel he's the host of Stossel on Fox Business Network and author of -- John I.
This law when he yeah.
Well I don't listen and I'll but the people who do more than our pundits at fox I think are the people who -- their own money and what will happen -- silly Republicans have made that illegal in America that's an inch Ireland is in trade dot com -- people bet on these things that.
Now is the betting that the mandate will be overturn.
Now OK so I know that you do not think this is a good idea and are some mean reason let's go through what creeps me out is that.
Republicans say oh good we've beaten the mandate back now would just take the good parts but some of the so called good parts that.
People like are awful and enforceable by on the cares 2400.
Pages I hold that up and I have read the whole thing in coming against -- now thing.
And -- policy was right thing we will have to pass that before we exit they still don't know it's and it because health and human services.
In the bill -- says we'll continue to write new mandates you have to cover this -- nobody can predict for the future and that's why.
So it's too complicated ways and small businesses -- All business -- for -- to hire as they don't know what their taxes will be what the gonna have to pay.
And in the worst part.
That I feared that the Republicans Bill O'Reilly -- is will -- ought to keep the part -- -- you can't discriminate against people with preexisting conditions.
Everybody likes and sounds cruel to discriminate but discrimination is what makes insurance.
Work -- If you if and -- car insurance company can't discriminate against Lindsay low -- in favour of us.
Then that's not insurance it's just don't know welfare program and and if they want that they -- -- call it that but insurance needs to discriminate between now.
The atmosphere and the -- -- in the not the young and the old big -- -- -- charging weak -- women more for health care.
And you women spend twice as much and go to the doctor much more often and maybe you're Smart were -- maybe that's why you'll live longer eight or maybe your hypochondriac I don't know what this but the assurance got.
Company ought to get to make a distinction so you're saying basically if you're -- -- -- gonna cost more you should have to pay anymore and that only sort of makes logical business sense.
And let these specialists.
Make those decisions sets a business.
And the thirdly it built into this conceit that we need more insurance.
That nobody knows what anything costs and you know market went third parties pay for your health care right.
That is true and that's a great point -- -- is still broken there's got to -- -- -- -- and it's not that broken.
Today's medicine is much better than medicine that we used to get even though it costs more.
And that the thing that works best as a market the tiny -- of American health care where there is a market.
Is where we pay ourselves so -- time because it's plastic surgery lazy -- surgery the prices go down.
Quality goes up the doctors give out their cell phone numbers because they want to please the patients it's a market that's what works for everything.
That means we have to pay more of our health -- girls ourselves.
No politician wants to tell people.
No but you know there's always that push for some sort of safety net underneath but people who care report -- -- now we've got.
It's not a safety net for poor people how much more do we need to do I think solve the problem can you go to Washington.
Album -- -- mean that was quick and easy they -- testimony hundred pages.
Because the free market is not intuitive to people.
