Ohio today to rally support for Health Care Reform as lawmakers in the house looked to be seen in Washington.
-- -- on FOX News Sunday white house press secretary Robert Gibbs offered up positive prognosis on a vote on that reform in the chamber.
We'll have the votes win the house votes.
I think within the next week and I think whoever sits here this time next week.
You all will be talking about Health Care Reform.
Not as presidential proposal but there's something that will soon be the -- -- The man in charge of counting the votes in the house congressman James Cliburn offered a slightly less optimistic outlook -- missing kids on NBC's Meet the Press.
No -- don't have -- as of this morning but we've been working this thing all weekend we'll be working it going into the week I'm also very confident.
There will get this done.
I have been talking to members for a long time on this and they have the will to do it.
But the House Budget Committee today will begin the process to bring health -- -- that Chamber's floor.
President a bomb in the meantime as moves overseas trip.
At the end of this week back too early next week to meet with lawmakers.
We're in Sanaa on Nancy Montoya in the Lloyd group attack he's as back at Scott K -- -- say FK's financial advisors are that that's got.
It's Scott let me just start with you about this health care bill as the process begins.
We would you anticipate happening over the next few weeks you think this comes through this week do you think athletes and next -- do you think it never gets there.
Well I can only hope that it never gets -- I think it's a horrible piece of legislation.
It's interesting that the Democrats have really chosen this method of trying to get -- -- that looked for a while.
-- they were gonna show willingness the united debate a little bit with the Republicans discussed with the Republicans and get a little more bipartisan support.
The fact that they've chosen to -- forces resist -- I think is that he needs gamble if they Louise I think they wield its own real propensity.
-- just try and force their will through with no bipartisan support.
On president Obama's support.
Part there's obviously.
-- -- -- any campaign promises he made sports bipartisan Syria and they would have nothing to show for.
Well -- casino there and edit Republicans have done everything impassioned deal possible in their power to slow down the process as a minority party here and they definitely.
Haven't not -- the best negotiating partners as well so Scott can you be more specific on what what what specifically in the bill.
Concerns you most of all we're just getting the first look at some of the act.
The fix is that would have to pass.
As a well.
To the senate bill that would go to the house to be voted on first.
Monica a couple of comments here you're right the Republicans have tried to slow this process down -- -- because they've been excluded from negotiations for the bulk of the process.
As far as my problems with the legislation.
This really represents a government takeover six -- percent of our GDP this would be a huge step that I socialist direction waning -- -- over -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- There's no public got a lot of -- has these.
Yeah this would this would be a huge step in a socialist direction and it and the terms of these -- -- free market solutions.
This will be the government dictating that he bought half you buy health insurance.
They would be forcing a huge multibillion dollar unfunded mandate on states to expand Medicaid program.
You -- be adding two and a half trillion dollars of cost -- this program is fully implemented over it in your period.
Which would be horrible for the economy you have to raise taxes pretty significantly in order to pay for that.
There's just a lot about this legislation that I think would be terrible had catastrophic economic consequence yeah.
Market the same time but we are.
What if if we let the baby boomers -- a baby boomers aging -- Medicare Medicare aids.
A significant portion of the population is going to be under socialized.
Medicine because Medicare.
Is that it is provided by.
By the government.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Been working with clients I've been working with clients -- anyway here since nineteen yeah I've been working with clients on Medicare since 1991.
I eyewitness the over 93 legislation that standardize all the Medicare medic -- policies Medicare supplement policies all these seniors and what happened was that it was a great idea the beginning all the insurance companies -- all for the same insurance benefits for everybody so -- -- the consumer was able to go out and just get the cheapest price.
And for that would for whatever coverage they wanted to buy it -- a package deal.
What happened was all these insurance companies as as time went on the claims got higher and the premiums went up.
Which then meant that people were starting getting to the point where they could afford their Medicare supplements anymore and they had to go by another policy from some other company.
Don't hope and pray that -- preexisting conditions had changed so they could go by another policy.
So if you just go back and look at Medicare supplements since 1993.
And look at the premiums going up this is what I -- for health insurance for for people that are younger.
And and the doctors themselves are saying look because of all book -- handcuffing that's done on what we can charge for our service -- -- On the senior population we have to charge more for younger people why you're seeing in Britain has adopted bill.
It brings up an interesting question because -- there's so many moving parts here but it it feels like the fundamental question of whether health care as a writer health care is a privilege hasn't been answered yet by anybody.
We -- it determined that health care.
Is the right to those over the age of 65 and those that are disenfranchising very -- We haven't determine whether or not it is a rock and it is.
-- right in the middle class so mark and -- your thoughts and that -- certainly PO I mean if health care fundamentally is that it is that a right.
To the middle class Americans that don't have the Medicare option or -- Medicaid option.
I agree with the administration and we I think the Republicans agree with the administration that there needs to be Health Care Reform that there needs to be opportunities.
For people to buy health insurance if they want to buy health insurance.
There needs to be pull set up within the insurance industry to fail -- You're you're pre existing conditions don't allow you to -- the the least expensive policy but here is a group of policyholders that -- your.
Your your profile where you could still buy coverage there is a major problem from the ages of sixty to 64.
Been able to even get insurance that's affordable and if it needs to be available for people had people with preexisting conditions need to be able to -- the coverage the problem is they should.
And -- at the hall of small business owners all the tax payers or how about the people who say I don't care about health insurance.
I'll take my chance and I'm not buying it.
To be forced the have to buy health insurance is socialist.
And that's what that's I think that's what I got was trying to say and I great.
And add to his point -- us what is as far as this health care oh right or not.
Where does that stop if we say health care as a right.
It's health care not Iraq people have to have shelters to live -- so should we have to provide houses that everybody should we have to provide transportation.
At what point does it stop before long you are -- -- totally socialists situation.
And there's there's there's got to be an end to that I don't think that question really has to be answer about what mark.
I think he's absolutely right people should have the right we should do what we can bring the cost down there are free market solutions.
That will bring the cost down dramatically -- Al infringing on the rights of America.
At the very interesting point thank you both for your your your -- -- is about picking it seems like all the peripheral discussion comes down to a few key factors in whether or not.
It -- -- -- Americans also believe that we should all have or whether or -- as you guys pointed out that we saw had the opportunity.
-- perhaps to have access to still see where this goes and looking forward to talking to both again about it when we have.
