That that won't fly.
I've no doubt that Mitch McConnell and Jon Kyl and leadership in the new members that are there.
Are gonna demand that there's a vote on on repeal and not one thing you can get if you're really stubborn enough when they didn't get the United States senate -- get a vote on something.

We think that.
Pushing for the repeal now sets the stage for real changes.
In what we need to do with health care if we -- a full repeal.
We can get this right.
I think the American public want to see a much more detailed debate on how we can really fix our health care system.
And the fact that -- -- seeing so many problems with this at this very early stage indicates we have a flawed bill.
I do better I don't think we've seen so many problems of this -- seeing a -- of the lot of the debate.
