Transcript for White House: 'We have done everything we can' to negotiate American Health Care Act
Regardless of what happens tonight will we hear from the presently coming out this statement. It is an independent attend the vote is. Sydell I want to commit to mature in some way shape or form Watson. And. It's similar to the question you rest your butt but is the president no matter what happens prepared to take responsibility for the outcome. Of this bill. One in what way it it mean whether it succeeds or else his name. Like that well I think that in the sense that we've been very clear about. This is a priority of ours and we work for the opening again I go back to. At the end of the day we can't make people vote. We've done everything we can't to listen to them to incorporate their thoughts to incorporate there. Ideas to make the bill as best we can but it's a it's a balancing act make no mistake about it that there's a full spectrum of folks in the house. That have. Desperate desires but I think we can all commit. This is the one vehicle that's going to repeal something to it. Almost every single Republican that I'm aware of has pledged to do if they were reelected or elected and I think that there's. A desire today it will we understand that not every number's gonna find is perfect that's what happens it needs get in this case 216 votes. But it's the best. Bill that takes me consideration. All of the concerns and all the goals all the values and I understand that in a lot of cases some of that some of it isn't a question of bomb. Of the policy to question the timing and some of the things that people want that are happening in phase three phase one. But as we've addressed that the bird rule which is you know to most people this arcane thing probably even in the house they don't have to deal with in the senate. That deals with whether or not it in if there is a if it is loaded up with things that are stricken and then it doesn't servicing and I think that we have put together a very comprehensive approach to. Addressing how to. Actually repeal and how to actually replace. And the president walk through with the house we caucus today several of the administrative acts it secretary price would be taken. In accordance with the authority that was granted to him. Bye. The obamacare legislation by some of the actions that secretary Sebelius took back in 2009. There's a lot of concern. Among members about. Some of the sequencing and things and I think that we've continued to not so this isn't just about policy some of its about sequencing and timing. And the president and vice president addressed the team have done a lot to reassure them on the sequencing. How this thing is gonna is gonna act so. So that that. Discussion. I think he's continued to be very productive to reassure members how this thing is gonna is gonna happen.
