We McConnell thanks so much for joining us this afternoon with this on the third anniversary.
President's health care law.
Is there any realistic shot.
To do any bipartisan changes to the law in this congress.
For the Democrats believe Obama carefully depend.
And and it would be trash.
And I think that's their view and -- start here from their constituents this monstrosity can't possibly work.
The single biggest mistake we've made legislatively in modern times in this country the single biggest step in the direction European our country.
And we made health care system that was authorities and -- Medicare going broke dramatically worse.
It was huge disappointment that the Supreme Court contracted.
Huge disappointment we -- -- the presidential election there about.
Being a good position repeal all -- we're not given.
I don't like this and possibly work and when Democrats are here Merrill -- the troops complain about it.
Hopefully we'll have an opportunity to get this thing.
On there's the view that once the benefits are that Americans won't like to give up the benefits once once the game and it will in -- -- well that's what the locals hope.
But in the meantime what's happening is the cost of premiums -- -- People are finding out there at camp justice -- keep the plan.
The presence the -- And and none of the problems that were made.
If you believe it can't possibly work and weren't represented -- democracy.
Hopefully Democrats will start responding and to pressure.
Can you give us an opportunity again blast big -- but and in my view -- they should be pulled out root and branch.
And the first opportunities.
We have to do that of the American people give us enough support to do that we're gonna do.
The medical device tax that's the repeal of it is an amendment that -- discussed perhaps -- vote on it mom sure if that's the case.
Is that something that you see is at least one small change to congress to make.
Very interesting point if it Democrats.
Actually vote to repeal of medical device stocks as they're saying they will.
Then that'll be the first crack in this -- -- And the first indication that Democrats along reflect.
It can never be true Internet should be tried and so that's going to be a significant vote -- -- -- show -- how many Democrats actually stand up.
And are counted to repeal the medical question will the Republican conference -- -- full support.
Often -- every single Republican voted to repeal a law always had a vote on recently.
And I'm competent -- all the more feel about it.
When it comes to the budget process that's going on for the first time sometime here in the senate.
Do you see a possibility.
Of the conference of the house and senate budget you think that'll happen in game.
Would that be that way for these so called grand -- all this talk just -- Yeah I don't think there's going to be an agreed to budget between house and senate.
If you look at that through budget like -- The world different planets.
The senate budget speculative -- nutrients.
Billion dollar content operational problem.
One point six freedom they've already gotten through its fiscal cliff and they expiration of current -- for a few few months ago.
And the -- in the world volatile.
Again picked him.
Having said that I do think there will be a discussion.
Fiction in parliament but it will be generated by the president's request of those to raise the debt ceiling and discussions likely do groups well.
And that discussion this summer -- and entitlement talking -- the tax discussion at least in theory do you think.
That that could proceeded debt ceiling deal -- would be the debt -- deal would deal on taxes on global warming up.
Well the president sort of gotten.
New taxes not because anybody go to court because the law expired at the end of the years 600 billion dollars approximately sorority.
Through Obama backer negative trillion dollars and and -- -- more talked.
What we needed news turn -- -- We've done a decent job not a complete job via an addition jobless for Gordon discretionary part of the -- and -- the entitlements.
Which is where the real money.
Hasn't been talk.
Until -- fiction published we can't say the American health -- was from the Medicare part of it.
And we can't save the country because this runs the risk tactic no -- we know the depth and size of our economy which connects local law like Greece now.
And that's only projected to get worse.
-- -- debt ceiling you don't know what the president specific request would be to raise the debt ceiling enough at least to get that first app.
Second part term.
You have to touch -- -- this can't simply be done just discretionary.
It's just we're not a rigorous and just soon do something about it.
To me this is what brings him to the table it'd be better be -- this discussion.
Deficit and out of the transcendent issue of our.
But oddly enough the president is not leaving us to fix the problem.
He is in effect being drawn kind of kicking and screaming to the table when -- so -- -- that polls and a and the event the -- -- into the discussion.
This summer is his requested -- to raise the -- so we'll be back at it again.
Trying to get -- to join us to fix entitlements and fix the country.
And Ireland which got -- -- and you.
