-- Geraldine Ferraro of course the former vice presidential candidate have been sent Fox News contributor a woman is double the medical system perhaps more than she would like on.
German Iliescu a little bit about this goal but the president race tonight and again it was -- -- so I don't wanna summit in India which it but it was -- -- Then that there might have to be some provision made a heart for a hardship cases a hardship exemption that would cover.
-- what the president says would be the two to 3% who don't go along with us now.
Many of your colleagues -- -- -- -- house stays and in the senate argue it's considerably higher than two -- 3%.
That's a whole new expense there's.
Parts but the -- can't pay for.
I mean that's where it's coming down on but but the thing about it is if you take a look at what he said and that it's its listing to you discussion just now -- the secretary.
It's almost as if is if you're listening he wasn't listening because it is about more taxes and listen that everybody's gonna get everything -- -- that increasing the deficit.
I think tonight when Obama to do you don't think.
-- get more taxes you don't think it's gonna well I think he'll be there have to be some taxes to take a look at where the bill aside -- and I thought we did I did eight.
And it looked at that the senate bill in the house bill did comparison between the two parent and -- look at what the the blue dogs I -- -- called now they're calling yellow -- to Madison has the Democrats are looking for.
You know nobody wants to add to the deficit so he said it's -- -- be deficit it's going to be revenue neutral but that's what he -- -- well you know this idea don't you place great stock and says it's not going to be.
But well CBO for one thing when they weren't addressing the report that they had -- think what was done several weeks if not months ago and what they're -- now was what it was originally.
The -- C span a lot has happened -- 115 amendments where we're accepted Republican amendment swears that accepted by the senate for the something Gerald.
And do you really think that over the course and I know you have a little bit more faith in government a book but do you think.
That the government is -- exact these huge savings.
That will ultimately pay for whatever these upfront cost on -- I I don't know if I have -- much.
They think commitment is much I have more faith in the president because I've played since well he has a lot of -- -- and done well when it took close look at what he said.
He says okay.
You know there is going to be in in its revenue YouTube but over the over the next decade there is going to be an increase in the deaths is going to be.
Seven trillion dollars over the next.
Next ten years but he -- if -- Do nothing.
It's going to be potentially.
And -- you're right you do believe that -- -- I don't know what am I had a breakfast and no but look what is it.
The you don't know tenure forecast even by companies has ever been right well let you could say yeah we do this man -- -- What I -- let them get a -- of this but what you can do is you can look at the increases in Medicare -- for instance over the past number of years and I don't have enough experience with this that I.
I wish I didn't have the experience.
And all I can see is how this has gone up over the last number of years that I've been -- so I think it's going up and you don't do anything at that at.
I mean if you don't understand -- -- let me ask -- personal.
Question and you don't hide your battle you're -- you're facing a life threatening Iraq right now and you've been doing it with class and brave but.
People who face battles like yours it's.
And it always comes down to would you be able to fight it and would you be able to fight it successfully.
In in in the system different from the one we've got.
Could because I can afford whatever I want.
But I can't tell you something in the current system people -- the same disease and cancer I have now we're in the fifties.
-- are not covered by insurance -- people who lost their jobs but people who are middle class people who have been tired.
You know if it can't afford.
The -- it.
Just plain view was -- -- -- everyone is getting access to the same treatment the same machines the same type of technologies that you are now there's only so many of those technologies and machines available.
Soon you would be presumably.
Standing in line.
If this and and make it but nobody is suggesting that we do on the with Canada has done that the UK has been you know I'm -- -- -- every one is in the pool like right Andy Kennedy.
There -- only so many lifeguards and well but I have that it is if you get somebody in -- to take a look at the the amount of costs and that's why when they talk about.
Setting up a commission and that's -- -- things that the Democrats from -- to object in this filthy when the president said.
We'll significant and it commission to take the politics out of this to look at what things cost.
When he is talking about.
About doing that you think that you can't -- you may not need an MRI.
Whereas you know if it's available -- Q what is the government ever -- these significant savings in what undertake well festival this is going to be -- take the politics that.
So this isn't that the commission as I understand it ran a people who are health care experts and how would I want to volunteer for the commission not really do because I really think it's important.
That -- that you did he get the realistic view on what's happening on some of the stuff.
But you know with any of this if we do nothing it's gonna get worse and that's the problem.
No actually I didn't Republicans are doing -- is not the answer but but yet you can almost are too much -- subject well you don't my personal view would -- is.
I wanna see you healthy and vibrant for many years and I think many Americans on the left and right through the same way I do.
What I worry about in the system -- Geraldine Ferraro might have to take a number and wait for access to the skill because.
Now so many more are likely to happen what you hope it's not gonna happen I think the -- the reason why maybe this is slowing down Geraldine is because.
It -- it and that's what Americans fear.
Right yeah well yeah I.
Perhaps put the -- with the present said the president said if you happy with the health care system then you'll get to do it this get to keep it.
It's a matter of choices he's not gonna say everybody has taken government mandated program -- what's the stuff I.
I -- from saying gee you know I'd rather take the 8% employee -- for not having health care.
Than paying these exorbitant cost for having.
Well I have to -- -- we have much choice he's been probably fine because -- anything any of the bills that I've seen that there is some seven point mandate.
Whether it's 25 employees or better -- you know -- confidence and gets done but in the end I am -- -- that have total confidence in the present well.
Left or right good -- -- disagree I have total confidence you're going to be around long time fighting your hopes that BI I think you'll be opinions from them.
-- -- in the highest well.
Geraldine Ferraro thank you.
