I don't it has not been officially unveil yet but Harry Reid is already bragging that the CBO has given him a pass.
On a relatively deficit neutral about 850 billion dollar of care package his -- probably -- Lauren -- not quite so good that senator adds to Wednesday.
Right now mom.
Senator wizards are a little bit more about my last desperate -- Harry Reid and what he's saying that he got a pass.
And a good grade.
-- -- -- -- -- He's got a preliminary estimate and that doesn't mean that it's a final -- plus they're using accounting gimmicks that would even -- there.
Enron officials tell us outside you can't believe -- the presence they try to keep this under a trillion dollars how -- they do that by it.
Starting taxing everybody right on day one -- for three or four years they don't implement the -- That's anyway they can do that the house bill -- -- three trillion dollars.
The the senate -- probably going to be somewhere between one point 82 trillion dollars on top of the to have a good point four trillion dollars we're already spending limits that.
That's -- honest -- -- I think they're gonna do is make sure -- Premiums were increased and that health care is less less viable.
But -- way I see it in your closer the -- I'll ever be senator but I think they're gonna get so I think they're on -- hammer out an accord.
On the might not be everything they want but it's going to be a lot of what they want and it's going to be enough to know you when he -- Well you got that right -- emphasized to -- and I think what we wanted to shoot it -- it from the beginning that hasn't had a bipartisan approach at all except.
Senator baucus on the finance committee has tried to make it bipartisan but he was severely limited in what -- could do.
And we're talking about.
Very -- the White House and a few senators for six weeks behind closed doors coming up what.
What this bill they haven't shown -- to any of us they probably won't do it until Friday or Saturday the fact of the matter is gonna have a -- -- program an area estimate.
About two thirds of the American independents are now against anything that they're coming up where it's one sided partisan and of course it's gonna cost an arm and a leg that anybody -- Who who believes that the insurance and it's really get down or that it won't cost more.
And that we can spend two trillion dollars in a 2000 page bill remember Hillary Clinton's bill was thirteen hundred pages.
Anybody believes that justice of living in the real world.
Do you have a sense though that -- we're gonna get this.
But my fear whether -- whether -- for taxes or not senator and and I'm keeping that out of the equation for the timing.
-- -- I think it's very hard to get people to be committed to watching the dime if it.
If they're not paying into the dots so the vast majority of Americans.
Are not paying for any -- this.
And and leaving it to the -- today -- or some imaginary savings from Uncle Sam to -- -- -- -- -- Gonna continue getting the tests they want there's going to be news the redundancies.
And that cost overruns.
Whatever they want because then it can't.
It's sort of like when someone lit streets out to dinner.
You'll order anything on the menu you know what I mean and and I don't know what the dynamic that's -- All right.
You've got that right in the matter of fact just think about it it doesn't just -- -- to pay for this they got.
500 million dollars or taken out of Medicare to pay for this sort of -- up till now that's what they've had.
There they're going to charge.
-- they're gonna get.
All kinds of taxes out of the medical devices insurance companies and others are gonna tax on your wheelchairs and everything else I mean those taxes are all passed on to the consumer what are called indirect taxes I hate to tell you the the people who are not large wage earners are gonna get hammered by this like you can't -- plus.
They've used budgetary gimmicks.
That letter literally there's no way.
That they're going to be able to.
To save money with the budgetary gimmicks of -- that is different budgetary gimmick that you can possibly use to try and keep this under trillion dollars and like I say.
There's no way it's under trillion dollars -- they don't even count the first three or four years so when you get to a full ten year extrapolation.
You're talking about two trillion more dollars and that's it that's CBO figures instead of you know instead of realistic figures.
All right senator thank you very much we'll watch it closely.
