-- -- Texas -- -- congress -- Michael -- might disagree with my characterization but he is a gentleman and a scholar.
And he's here to explain the merit of the -- to -- congress and I think you could take my criticism of all the good intentions.
I just think you're wasting your time what -- you.
We'll deal with them it's a multi front tactical struggle and the repeal vote today was important soared because of it -- -- a message vote to be sure it is.
But the Supreme Court gave us an opinion two weeks ago.
And the next opinion comes from the court of public opinion here's a law that was.
Crafted in secret secret deals down at the White House full of loopholes and drafting errors this thing does not.
Deliver on the promise that -- I only got all of the above in my personal opinion congress and but I would ask you this then you know.
What I outlined is right that the senate -- take -- -- -- -- does the president would veto it even if they -- -- -- I wish the president would veto I would.
I would love for that to happen in the audience but but but it's not okay I'll I wanna get back to reality so I -- wanted that ask -- this.
Why not be tactical about it why not go the route the way Texas governor Rick Perry -- New Jersey governor Chris -- And all these others -- -- its knees on the Medicaid provisions these health care exchanges which are beyond stupid.
That why not go after the taxes next year that's something the Supreme Court seems to say you have free license to start whittling away -- Why this other stuff it just seems like -- theaters.
Thanks but but it.
Realistically having governor Perry's exactly right and -- -- so in several interviews yesterday.
That's one front of this struggle.
The big front right now is you've got to convince people that November makes a difference and this vote today yeah as -- messaging -- -- front.
Absolutely because the course of this vote was about what to get the core -- -- we knew do you guys hated it.
Several times right there -- Republican lit -- when you listen to that now you really go -- you need to you need to remind people.
Why it's this is that this is -- hated piece of legislation.
Why it never had popular -- -- support you know across the country.
-- -- taxes of course her case in point there's no reason the world we cannot do everything that you articulated during your monologue.
About stripping out individual taxes and in fact going after the funding yet but I think you're wasting time we did my only Arianna and you're a good guy and I know where your -- -- and I know what you're trying to do here.
And I can understand actually that strategy I -- think it's wrong strategy because the time -- -- trying to get a -- going to you know is a -- to nowhere.
You could be doing this other stuff because the rap against a lot of your colleagues is that they can't.
Walked in and chew gum at the same time you know it was one -- the other.
Congress is always gonna have that is gonna have give that impression people but look this doesn't work leadership decided that was important to have this messaging vote.
But it doesn't mean that tomorrow we don't get right back to work in the committee and subcommittee.
And work on exactly the things that you talked about it.
That day trip to -- I'm working toward is.
Yeah we change enough in the -- that we get a reconciliation vote early in the next session and we him president Romney the repeal he's asked for.
Right after his inauguration that would be the ideal scenario OK we'll watch closely congressman.
Always been having.
