The president have -- to the White House for the forest health care summit.
So it seems to me that the White House is pretty good at putting on these summits unfortunately it not to get it passed the legislation that the American people want.
-- a sense of dog and pony show images using new laws.
Whether the dog -- show -- or maybe a a legitimate.
Opportunity for mustard agents -- discuss and you know we wouldn't be here at this summit if there was a bill being proposed by -- president of the White House that the American people liked.
You know we've seen over and again this through the town hall meetings that occurred this summer to the election after election that we've seen over the fall.
That people don't like this bill and it's important I think for -- that here today if the president listen to the people.

Well it has been aloha out of lot of discussion about how this thing will work.
And it seems will be sitting around -- table they'll be almost forty of its members of congress senators.
From both priorities.
The present -- have caused some of I think -- -- -- will be there the vice president will be there.
And -- -- going to be talking.
The subject areas that he wants to talk about.

It's the way that he's going about it changing them.
Have not and and are not probable in terms of being able to provide people the health care debate continue to want.
And I'm hopeful though that we're gonna see a president that will listen the American people finally and story over.

That we can do this organisms use of -- -- -- -- -- You know so don't Jones and a well what we've what we've got to do is focus on competition.
That's how we bring down costs.
And from the beginning Republicans have said -- if we allow people to purchase insurance across state lines.
Families will have a choice of not just maybe three or four plans to choose from but maybe thirty or forty.
That's the best thing you can do for families looking for better health care give them a choice.

Let's get the junk lawsuits out of the examining room.
The Congressional Budget Office is that date cost this public an awful lot of money.
Fifty some billion dollars over ten years.
Why can't we just go ahead and make sure that doesn't happen anymore so hopefully we'll hear the president say OK you're right let's do that.
And and we've got some other ways that we think we can bring down costs.
We can allow small businesses.
To pull together so that they can receive the more affordable insurance premiums that some of the larger companies have.
You know right now there's just not a lot of competition -- this.
President and the majority in congress feel the best way to go promote competition.
Is to have the government go in and dictate that.
We all know that doesn't work it may sound good it just doesn't work.
