Do you think it would have helped if the President were more involved in the policy itself?>> He was deeply involved. That's the thing that I was so pleased and impressed with. He really rolled up his his sleeves. So actually he's up to speed on the issue, he knows the circumstances.
What I worry about, Norah, is that if we don't do this, then he'll just go work with Democrats to try and change Obamacare, and that's hardly a conservative thing. This is a can-do president, who's a business guy. Who wants to get things done. And I know that he wants to get things done with the Republican Congress.
But if this Republican Congress allows the perfect to be the enemy of the good, I worry we'll push the president into working with Democrats. He's been been suggesting that as much.>> I mean, have you reached out to the Democrats yet to work on this bill, Pelosi?>> No, I'm trying to get this bill passed.
Nancy and I see things very, very differently. I don't want government running healthcare.>> But you guys are not on the same page. The president of the United States saying he's gonna work with Democrats on this. You don't want->> I know he's been saying that, and I don't want that to happen.
You know why? See I want a patient-centered system, I don't want government running heathcare. The government shouldn't tell you what you must do with your life, with your healthcare. We should give people choices.
