Now to Tom DeLay who knows this process very very well talking about -- of a former house majority leader.
Who knows a thing or two about counting votes and if you had to count and now Tom -- -- little.
Well lag I think -- that the most important vote of the notebooks.
Because it what they're trying to do is to stay away from 215.
No votes they get 215 hard -- that are made public.
It's over they don't win.
That's that's of what they're really looking at then they're they're working with their members and its -- it -- mean.
They got units in the no votes they get.
These -- Defazio of Oregon the progressive liberal -- you know.
I have I -- -- that's a sure no but it was a former yes and he's indicating right now that unless they make some changes.
He's going to -- you know now I can't see in the end that he would stand now but it's possible.
Then you have these reports is Jason umpire that blue dog Democrat that's a -- met with the president the White House earlier this week.
And despite all of that is inclined still to vote.
Know how important are those votes in the scheme of things -- that.
No vote bill.
They're down to the very last few votes and that could be anywhere from 1015.
-- they probably have five to ten votes that are -- we hear if you need me.
Yeah but I want to vote no and so they hold -- to those and they had some leaning -- you gotta look on like the Peja.
That I think they could probably take care debate euro's problems.
Have maybe not in this bill but -- promise later.
They did that I mean what happened when when they promise or even when -- -- -- in the senate many house Democrats -- How do we know the senate will follow and make good on this and there's a great deal of -- -- -- in draw party.
We now houses.
Had -- they address that other big attack.
There's I don't think the Democrats.
The members of rank and file members not paying attention to what won't go on in the senate.
Because they're counting on the senate to fix is senate bill that they don't like and they're right away there -- the senate can have a point order on this reconciliation bill that kills the whole bill just over the excise taxes on Social Security.
-- and they can drag it out for weeks.
So in the present if they pass this bill tomorrow the -- don't sign the bill tomorrow.
Senate bill and they're gonna say all and then we promise you the reconciliation.
But this is this is the time when.
A bag maybe it's the best time in the -- pitcher's career because you can usually get the things that you've been working on.
That the leadership that so what are we assuming that the ones -- -- -- Peter couldn't get their back bench DO.
-- Didn't want.
The ones that are voting no and by and large of the vulnerable ones many of them.
All -- almost forty of them are sitting in previous Republican seats.
And they wanna come back they don't want in their career with this and all of my -- a perfect example of that.
His district is vastly opposed to this bill and he knows if -- -- -- East Coast.
And that's that's where most of those notebooks are coming from -- -- -- although Democrats.
In the middle of this you have the CD which as it really finally scored this that they've got.
I guess what the cover tapes go right to candidate come over the follow -- story and then there was this letter to -- -- today with congressman Ryan.
Essentially saying look these these give -- they did for doctors so that -- Medicare.
Cuts wouldn't be as severe that's that's that's got to -- afternoon.
That's all political cover.
The CBO numbers are meaningless number one.
Give you perfect example.
They say that they're gonna have a 138 billion dollar savings in the deficit.
By this bill over ten year period which is what.
Thirteen billion a year that's big money but the point is as they left out the doctor reimbursement.
Money which is over 200 billion dollars that -- -- that deficit right away.
We did it may fifth comparing apples apples is debatable list is not -- there's some sinister -- I -- -- -- but I'm not to see if they come out now was saying.
We you didn't account congress for how you're going to pay for this compensation of doctors.
Then all of a sudden -- CBO numbers and why not -- they can't CBO can't say that because it's not in the bill.
In the bill it says they're not gonna reimburse the doctors.
That's how they play with these numbers don't get the -- they want but we now know ultimately that is going to be it but not the reimbursement it's not going to be in the bill.
Now they'll still leads the series is okay so the assurances that they -- doctors don't -- that this you're not gonna get doubts.
That has some way to get enough but yet.
We're gonna pass them at the same with the you know that's a very cynical view of what happens -- that financing to -- but that's what happen examined.
The union -- cut a deal with the president and I'm sure.
They got there the taxes on Cadillac plans that they pushed it back for the unions probably made the man the president said don't worry about it.
We'll stick -- bill makes you what do you make of this class trip that the capital -- democrats' gathering -- the big guy and a little unusual isn't -- it's unusual good theater and it's all political cover.
Really -- have little recovering some of us it's worth their trouble the -- absolutely excellent got great theater all right Tom DeLay was very great to -- -- to join us.
Where we will be monitoring this as well both networks Fox Business partners as a former majority leader doesn't distinguishing those great programming -- just pursues it zealously like he did.
Is dancing career which hopefully we'll get better the second time this hit and I think that's a very good -- -- under.
