-- Dick -- -- is calling on Republicans to help change and improve.
Obama -- Congressman Tim Murphy joins us now from Capitol Hill -- When I -- top Democrats in the United States senate walking away from president Obama's signature achievement.
To me it means it's the beginning of the ends would you agree -- Well I certainly wish this discussion.
It happened a few years ago and we were first considering a bill.
But I think.
The evidence is mounting that there are serious problems with not only how this -- -- but how was designed in the first place.
And the hands are tied you look at everything from the navigators the cost.
All these various aspects of how this -- is going to be operation.
It's extremely difficult and when you look at what.
The administration recently said -- can afford off on the enforcement of fines against businesses we don't know what you can do with individuals.
It's telling us that they understand there's some serious problems but I'm not sure they're admitting it yet.
But we'll see but if Democrats -- walking away from it.
That -- a huge signal about the elections next year I don't think Democrats will want to go into a big -- -- election.
With a -- -- cat and chaos around their neck.

But I'm not so sure that you're gonna hear -- -- Democrats wanted to risk just backing off that thing -- OK and I believe you have a hearing today and you're gonna try to get the IRS deep funded as the policing officer for Obama cat it's gonna happen -- Over other -- hearing next week and asking member people who administrations where did you get the authority.
To waive this this mandate not businesses and what you can do -- individuals.
Now we received a letter from them a lesson from treasury saying hey we can waive these penalties on anybody just like if John doe has issues with -- taxes the it okay so does that then means a very important question does that mean the loss still exists -- they still have to do it.
And what are you gonna do with the individuals and so what happens if Mary Smith does not have insurance from -- company.
She is not be penalized if she doesn't have and our own but the company is less provided this is almost chaotic more chaotic for businesses are saying are we supposed to comply or not.
Congressman we appreciate being with us but all I see is chaos coming and I think that's a lot of -- -- --
