I'm joined by senator John harass our Republican policy committee chairman a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and several others senator great to have -- Lou thanks for having this evening but let's start with Obama care this is this is.
Responding to appear like the train wreck that John Boehner although it.
Work is going on here are we talking sixty days from implementation of the changes.
This is part of the look like an impossibility.
-- what was the training room.
Well it's continually to unravel there are more and more people who think that the health care law.
We'll be bad for them actually by three to one over people who think it will be.
Good for them in terms of their cost and quality care remember -- what people were looking for from the beginning.
Was access to care and affordable care and they're getting neither.
We saw that with that with the IRS agent who said well I like what I have can I just keep bit.
-- -- the -- the president promised that to people all around the country and people -- -- seeing that they can't necessarily.
Keep what they have.
If they like it we have unions that are coming out against the health care law including the union that represents all these IRS agents.
-- worthy of the enforcers of the health care law you have Democrats jumping ship in terms of the employer mandate as well as the individual mandate is those bills.
Pass the House of Representatives.
The employer mandate.
The individual mandate to be tested yet.
-- this forward from a suspending a long are we I mean that you as you point out.
Daniel were full and the national treasury employees union that represents the IRS and with the work 161000.
Agents -- -- -- rehired in horse obamacare.
I love that expression in sports I health care.
This is really quite something and the administration does.
Does it have options here that it can exercise -- to buy itself time to recast this entire mess.
-- -- -- the issue what the administration is doing and whether it's legal or not I wouldn't think that there.
President has the legal authority to just -- lay up part of the law being the employer mandate.
But on the same time saying no the individual mandate that everyone has to -- government approved insurance by the first of the year he wants to leave that part.
In place so we know that the laws not just -- popular it's also now.
Unfair to how it treats American citizens -- this this was bad for people's paychecks their jobs as well those -- health care.
Well we've all we're all feeling the the effects of the tax increases that have -- company.
On the onset of obamacare.
Let's turn to one other development that has to be perhaps at least in the short term even more embarrassing to the president.
Russia granting -- Snowden one years asylum.
And in the White House coming out of that the -- that you heard from -- -- It was -- -- robust vigorous.
Response to what was -- slap from President Obama is slash President Obama space.
We -- -- you're absolutely right they said the White House was was disappointed you know that's what your third grade teacher used to say to you they're not mad just disappointed.
But let's face it the president's reset with Russia has failed.
The the wrote the -- the leader of Russia Putin does not.
Fear the United States or this president there are things that we ought to do number one -- we -- -- say we're not gonna go to the G-20 summit we're not gonna have a one on one.
Meeting that the president was supposed to have with prudent in Saint Petersburg.
At the end of the summer that that we ought to take a new look at.
The whole strategic arms reduction activity that the president has committed to I think it was a mistake I voted against.
That but we -- to beef up our missile defense to RI -- should rise in Europe.
We should remind the audience as well the president has basically proffered a reduction of a third of -- we're our nuclear weapons.
Is sort of a sign of good faith in her into a negotiation are remarkable.
Perhaps the most remarkable ever taken by a president.
And arms reduction.
Crowley did that when he went to Berlin he wanted to pretend that he was John Kennedy would visit bin Ein Berliner.
Speech and I believe that the Russians at this point have no fear the United States no respect.
For this president it's because of the president's policies.
And the way that he is behaved as president of the United States.
Let let let's turn to the scandals the president and -- his his folks.
Are aggressively trying to in the label phony on the scandals that -- In which they now find themselves embroiled.
Well for the president to label these phony scandals I believe lowers the president's.
Standing with the American people because they know.
These phone these these scandals are not phony.
When they talk about what's happened after been Ghazi with the IRS.
Bill that the IRS is it an all time low I believe people always been anxious.
About dealings with the IRS now there is -- I see raw anger at home.
In Wyoming about that the IRS the way -- targets specific.
Whole political groups the way it wastes taxpayer's money we saw that with these different conferences that they've had these terrible.
Videos that have come out all with taxpayer money.
The IRS is -- spending money -- no respect for the taxpayers.
And now you see the IRS lobbying congress the union has told IRS agents lobby congress so you don't have to live under the Obama health care law.
Which is the law that you are being paid.
Would force -- as we watch all of this unfold.
It is it is it's it's stunning real.
That there -- -- -- little.
Effort on the part of of the traditional watchdogs.
Of the fourth estate are liberal national media.
There's no accountability.
Is -- likely to be -- be on the ballot box -- -- of course next year.
Well I expected more especially with the way that the that the White House has and and the Justice Department has gone after reporters.
