Chuck Todd Interview

Today’s Business Meeting At White House: “What we had today was a business meeting by the President of the United States telling us what his objectives were, what the mission was, what everybody's role was, and what he expected...Last night, President Trump laid out a vision for America, and today was a follow-up to say it's time to get down to work.”

Trump Leading At Business Pace: “I'm very excited that we've got a guy who is leading right now and moving at a business-pace, not a government-pace. So we talked about health care, primarily, and it was an extremely encouraging conversation. He laid out his expectations very clearly.”

Georgia Health Care Options Shrinking: “Right now in my home state, 96 counties out of 159 only have one insurance carrier. Costs are up dramatically, our deductibles are up dramatically, but more importantly, if this carrier pulls out of our state, people in 96 counties will not have any insurance carrier.”

Obamacare Running Off The Rails: “Obamacare is about to run off the rails. This is an emergency situation in my opinion. We’ve got to act and act quickly to protect the people who need the protection the most…Again, we're looking for a solution to avoid the disaster that is Obamacare if and when it collapses."
