Because of that Republican Tennessee congresswoman Marsha Blackburn congresswoman I'm.
I don't know get a chance to listen what mr.
Williams -- saying that essentially.
This thing was a disappointment a lot more could have been done maybe a lot more clarified an agenda a lot more defined what -- -- -- Well he is right on a couple of accounts we could've gotten a little bit further and it could've started with the president saying all right -- all -- the table.
Here's a clean sheet of paper let's talk about where there are areas of agreement and -- their areas of disagreement.
I think a lot of time it was hit today on the pot stirring and may be a little bit of senate filibustering -- we did arrive at a couple of areas where.
I think there's room for further negotiation -- one -- that is -- the issue that I handled.
Four at the house Republicans which was the purchasing of insurance across state lines.
Getting down does not Sun City just running times and letting people choose policies the next witness medical malpractice and senator Coburn.
Can't handle that the medical malpractice and medical liability issue and I think you'll see further discussion on that.
You know I don't know whether the president is not gonna do another one of these things you know.
Depends they respect let's go to bed but why couldn't congresswoman.
You guys decide events that -- -- -- stuff on which we.
We agree about the portability that we agree about pre existing conditions we agree maybe we should.
Maybe up the ante a little bit on malpractice coverage because to a limited degree Democrats even on board.
At the most notable is something there so wind.
Agree on the stuff you agree and then separately come out with this other stuff from which -- you content to -- disagree.
Well and that's exactly right because the number one issue with the American public on this -- cost.
And they wanted to hear what was going to be done to get costs down.
And didn't -- through these issues -- agreement.
And and say how we did this should not add a penny to the deficit how we do this should not lose another job even in the house bill would have cost five million jobs -- -- by the president on estimate.
And I think there is disappointment from the American people.
And that the cost effective measures that would allow greater access to affordable health care are not being -- And that their focus is on expanding coverage.
And adding to the federal debt adding to the deficit -- increasing the cost to the American taxpayer.
That is totally the wrong direction and that is not much.
In the end like that -- congresswoman was there you know you were trying to argues brings up to the president all that.
But on I got a feeling that you ma'am but I certainly had a feeling when John Boehner.
So not a leader was speaking.
There was the president gave him the -- player and and and I don't think mr.
Bennett thinks a lot of the brother -- I get a totally wrong.
But I big into body language and what it might say and I content -- might say.
And I think there's such a degree of content between the two parties.
And answered this a little differences between -- two parties and between some of the key individuals.
There is no way in hell you guys are gonna come together.
A lot of these -- -- because some of the principal players does it it's.
Well and that could end up being what happens you know the president said these are areas where we agree now it goes back with the speaker.
And the leader in the senate and then they decide they did not want to move forward on across state line purchasing -- move forward on liability reform.
And you're exactly right meal that is why could possibly happen.
Now while we would like to do -- take -- a clean sheet of paper and on behalf of the American people start over on dance and look at the areas we're.
We do not gonna do and congressman I've got to start over new Binyamin you know they've figured there's India and it'll look like well they mind their mind -- -- telling -- thanks.
The president made declared Nancy made -- clear -- clear -- made it clear that activists.
But that's an.
And start well and the thing is -- if they -- this through reconciliation.
And I tried to do such a massive government takeover.
I have so much of our nation's economy I think the American people -- absolutely we felt OK come.
Restore and always good seeing you thank you very much yeah.
-- -- -- thank you very congressman elect from by the way the reconciliation to which she refers that you're often at times but that means just a simple majority vote in the senate will do it.
Rather than the two thirds majority roughly sixty votes you need.
To pass legislation about a -- body that was a very contentious point today.
Going back and forth as to.
When a simple majority does it or you need sixty votes for the president and Democrats indicating.
-- majority we'll just.
