Host: Martha Raddatz
Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY)
Adam Kinzinger (R-IL)
Raddatz: OMG Obama's Presidency is in crisis!
Karl: Obamacare's flaws may threaten
Obama: we fumbled the rollout
Karl: the website doesn't work and
people are getting plan cancellations
Raddatz: oh my
Karl: not as many people trust Obama
and this may be Obama's Katrina from
which Bush never recovered
Raddatz: Obama's Katrina!
Karl: Democrats are bailing on Obamacare
Raddatz: will anyone be fired?
Karl: that's not going to fix anything
Raddatz: but he has to fire someone!
Dowd: Presidents need to show
accountability like when Bush fired Rumsfeld
Raddatz: but that took years
Plouffe: the website is going to be fixed –
but they need to regain people's trust
Karl: get the health insurance CEOs on board
Jarvis: young healthy people aren't
rushing to buy health insurance
Raddatz: Matt you're a Republican –
bash Obama for me
Dowd: Obama can't pass any laws from now on?
Raddatz: is just like Katrina?
Dowd: no one has died but it's eerily similar
Plouffe: But Bush lost trust because he
lied to get us into a war and then
screwed that up too
Dowd: oh right that happened
Raddatz: can he regain the trust
of the American people?
Karl: it's possible
Raddatz: can he regain trust?
Gillibrand: of course – people don't want
to lose insurance because of
a preexisting condition
Raddatz: but the trust has been shattered!
Gillibrand: oh come on Martha
Raddatz: but Obama misled everyone!
Gillibrand: the whole point is to provide
people with adequate useful health insurance
Raddatz: but Obama fell on his sword
but has missed that sword a couple of times
Gillibrand: what the hell are you talking about
Raddatz: the leadership!
Gillibrand: Obama's legacy is going to be
providing millions of Americans with health care
Raddatz: but 39 Democrats defected!
Gillibrand: they're just responding to
the needs of their constituents
Gillibrand: people are worried about their
family's health coverage and that
makes sense – but the law helps people
Raddatz: are you planning running
for President in 2016?
Gillibrand: no I'm endorsing Hillary Clinton –
she's got the gravitas and she's rested and ready
Raddatz: you are pushing to reform
sex assault prosecution in the military
Gillibrand: we're getting the votes –
we need to protect soldiers giving
their lives for our country
Raddatz: would you leave murder and
theft in the chain of command?
Gillibrand: no – we have 26,000 assaults
Raddatz: but you don't have the data
Gillibrand: yes we do – this comes
from the Department of Defense
Raddatz: but but
Gillibrand: if you are raped you are
likely to be retaliated against
Raddatz: John McCain says you don't
have military experience to oversee the military
Gillibrand: I like John but this is my job and
I'm sorry but the military has allowed sex
assaults to occur for too long
Raddatz: what is the President's position?
Gillibrand: we have lots of Generals supporting us
Raddatz: lots don't
Gillibrand: they're serving now – of course
they support the chain of command
Raddatz: I see
Gillibrand: and one three-star general!
Raddatz: thanks for coming
Raddatz: OMG SNL made fun of
President Obama – that is the best
thing I have ever seen!!
Ifill: Obama came out this week saying
he fumbled – they've hit bottom
Raddatz: happy 65th birthday Howard Dean
Dean: I signed up for Medicare in 10 minutes
– we need a public option!
Raddatz: but is the rest of his term is destroyed?
Stephens: this is the great political
disaster in decades
Raddatz: I love it!
Stephens: this will crush jobs
Kinzinger: the website will be fixed –
but Obama is raising taxes and
secretly wants socialism
Raddatz: aren't Republicans doing really well?
Ifill: Obama's doesn't want single-payer
Kinzinger: that's the goal of the Democrat party
Raddatz: no one trusts Obama!
Stephens: Obama is incompetent –
he wiretapped Germany, let Ed Snowden
steal secrets and let Syria give up
chemical weapons without firing a shot
