Health care and the House of Representatives just days away now from when the house plans to.
To vote or maybe not -- balls were talking about a program -- Bill Richardson seven DC with the very latest rich.
-- Democrats have not released their final changes -- this health care bill there is no official cost estimate in democratic leaders.
Are asking their members to vote on this possibly this weekend and there is no finished product the president outlined what he wants to see in this -- deal.
But there have been weeks of negotiations.
And we don't know exactly what's in.
And what's out.
The other -- The thing -- here when -- when you look at we were touted earlier this self executing rule.
That's one of the things building and he is some sort of a procedural measure no matter what's in what's out to pass what they have so far as opposed to just -- and out and voting on the full bill.
It did -- and if you look at what's bigger policy had to say yesterday -- she said she likes this bill because it involves Democrats voting.
On a different provision not just that senate passed bill that so many Democrats say they don't like right in the house and you're also hearing Democrats begin to defend -- -- Louise Slaughter she's the chairwoman.
Of the house rules committee she was saying -- got there first of all many different ways the congress passes bills.
Without voting unanimous consent first of all basically what you do he says anybody opposed no okay the house has passed -- we don't have to take a vote.
And and and they're treating this almost in the same -- saying that there's a number of different.
Examples throughout the last few generations where the house has passed nothing and it's a big -- -- senate delicate and not nothing that at least still from what we've seen especially recently nothing like.
An entire reorganization of the health care system certainly not right and that's and that's really the point is that if you're gonna use something and then the question -- if you do that the risk is.
Will voters remember it in November and then I guess it's up to the -- what about the cost again go back -- that -- CBO and what's what's what's the holdup here we know.
But the bottom line is that no final bill therefore no final cost on this in Democrats you know what you do we take ability score is what cost estimates -- When you -- the final provisions in the bill when you have an idea of what each provision costs -- just a matter of fitting into this trillion dollar -- they have to make sure that this thing comes under.
The trillion dollars and 999 billion dollars or one point 01 trillion dollars to big difference for Democrats trying to sell that's -- right now trying to make sure that it comes in that target.
If you acquit itself execution if they vote on parts of the bill and -- parts of it what happens to the other parts -- -- we're talking procedurally here.
Parts is parts but what happens the parts are voted on and it's right but -- That's the problem in this is what you know we've talked to some parliamentarians former parliamentarians about this the bottom line is we've heard.
Up for mr.
-- the former senate parliamentarian he says -- the house rules committee can do whatever it wants as long as the house.
Passes that reconciliation bill and let's say goes over to the senate in the senate.
Parliamentarian strips out certain pieces of -- doesn't matter because the house has already said in this vote if you vote.
For this particular bill it also passes the senate bill and therefore its past so that's one of the schools of thought here but there there parliament -- arguments about this because again.
This really hasn't been done in this type of -- right for that the Democrats -- -- you don't reorganizing the health care system through reconciliation possibly through the self executing rule.
And that that's ever been done.
I get a head spinning again Edson on the -- Barnes going to be a blast on the -- -- -- I didn't think I -- Detonators that they're reading that -- -- -- of regulation elder for the guy -- that interview when you're talking apartment variants and everything else that's -- he called me up is like that pay 73 check that.
I would not come up you know that's true it's me that's the sad when -- -- talk to you it's.
