As I think you may have already heard, we're gonna continue the discussions within our conference on the differences that we have that we're continuing to try to litigate. Consequently, we will not be on the bill this week, but we're still working toward getting at least 50 people in a comfortable place.
No, we're continuing to talk about it, it's a very complicated subject. I remember how challenging it was for the Democrats when they were enacting this back in 2009 and 2010. It's a big, complicated subject, we've got a lot of discussions going on, and we're still optimistic we're gonna get there.
>> Will your ongoing discussions involve Democrats?>> They're not interested in participating in this.>> Now you say, well will you work with your Republican colleagues? We want to, and we have two suggestions. First, abandon tax breaks for the wealthy, abandon cuts to Medicaid, abandon repeal, and we can sit down and talk about improving healthcare.
No matter what tweaks they may add in the next week and a half, no matter how the bill changes around the edges, it is fundamentally flawed at the center. The Republican bill is rotten at the core.
