Highlights:

Delivering A Solution: “I think we’re getting to a point now where we’re very close. I remain hopeful and I really think we’ve got something here we can work with.”

Ending The Obamacare Crisis: “Perfection is difficult to achieve, and that's why we have been working so hard. But let’s remember we have a crisis on our hands. Obamacare has been collapsing over the last seven years.”

Increasing Access: “We want to repeal as much as we can repeal. What we've got to do is fix the problem that is out there. We've got to make sure that people continue to get access or will get increased access.”

Renewing Optimism: “Chair Yellen acknowledged that the economy wants to turn. Consumer confidence is up and unemployment is down below five percent.”

Encouraging Capital Investments: “If you don't do something with Dodd-Frank to free capital up in the banking system, and you don't give confidence to the business community so they invest again, you could be in a real capital crisis in the next year or two.”
