We're looking ahead to tomorrow Supreme Court ruling -- obamacare the law that launched a thousand protests.
The president's massive health care overhaul fueled the rise of the Tea Party movement a reaction against government overreach and -- spending now.
These grass -- protesters were decisive in the 2010 elections.
What will this ruling mean for the Tea Party in 2012.
-- joined by Republican congresswoman Michelle Bachmann from Minnesota founder of the house Tea Party caucus and what of Obama -- fiercest departments.
It's great to see -- congress are nice to have you on the show what is the feeling in the Tea Party tonight as we are on the -- that this big decision.
What people -- electric and they're really there's a lot of electricity in the air lot of excitement lot of anticipation.
The -- up his bed that something's going to change it obamacare won't stay the way it is that -- that entire ruling isn't struck down at least part of it will be doubts the expectation.
People are very excited I'll be in the chamber tomorrow what that decision -- handed down.
And we are looking forward -- hopefully very good news.
Well it's going to be fascinating -- -- to be a lot of people out there tomorrow I expect to be one of them.
What -- the questions the American people have though is what next let's say the individual mandate goes or possibly even the entire law.
The majority of Americans say they want congress to take on health care and especially the spiraling costs.
Quality of health care what are people like you prepared to deal to improve health care in this country.
Well that really is the problem and I agree with President Obama he said that cost was issued an Obama care he's at every American would save 2500 dollars other premium.
Instead costs spiraled by a factor of three this last year so what will do is something that is no cost to the tax here.
It would be allowing people -- -- your own health insurance across state lines.
With no minimum federal requirements let people -- -- but that all their health care expenses with their own tax free money.
And -- true medical malpractice reforms those are three major reforms -- it cost the taxpayers nothing.
And they bring the cost of health -- down dramatically that's just the beginning of what we can do it will have a -- conversation.
The one thing we won't do is force a political solution down our throats of people that doesn't help anyone gaining access to health care.
Congresswoman tonight you know we're sitting here talking to everybody about their expectations what they see happening.
The reality is you could get surprised the other way -- Obama -- yeah stick.
That all of -- could be made it could be approved by the Supreme Court and get this rubber stamp of the highest court in the land.
What -- that mean as a practical matter now this government intrusion as you've described would be backed by the supreme.
Work it will added I think that would give a boost to President Obama and his supporters but that doesn't change the fact that 70% of the American people 70% of the doctors don't like obamacare.
The reality today is high cost denial of care.
That isn't going to go away it'll only get worse under a comic here so what it will mean is all of our chips are on November.
Everything is about making sure that we have a a role.
Reduce costs -- pro free market help health -- president.
And senate and congress well yeah like there are a lot of issues to fall right like tomorrow's decision is not the last word.
We'll certainly be discussing this for along time -- -- I ask you a personal question.
You have 23 Foster children as I understand has five kids to bureau.
All parents understand the importance of good health care affordable health care.
As you look to this.
What is in your mind as a way to get there because it seems to -- the politics of this -- are just in the way we cannot come to any kind of resolution.
But it actually is pretty simple if you let people just -- any health insurance policy they want that's good for everyone.
If you let people pay for their health insurance with their -- tax free money.
That's good for every one and it's yet medical malpractice reform that's good for everyone except the trial lawyers so there's a lot that we can't -- help people.
And your white as a mom.
My 25 year old could easily afford to pay sixty dollars a month for his health insurance.
But to date because of government intervention.
His bill is far higher than -- so I wanna see the costs -- for our kids because then they'll understand that it's their obligation to bide your health care bill be responsible.
We've got a long way to go and tomorrow it's not the end of this congresswoman Bachmann thanks for coming on today are really appreciate your time we'll see you tomorrow on the courthouse steps okay.
