remain. how do you move forward with that in terms of, you know, the tax code? >> i think it's going to be a challenge and i think one of the reasons why they try to prioritize the repeal and replace of the affordable care act is for that reason. medicare tax, medical device tax and a number of the taxes that are rolled into the aca in addition to that they were counting on some of the cost-saving to be able to pay for some of the tax reforms. and speaker ryan actually owned up to that fact on friday at his press conference. heather: so is now the time that we need to have a new coalition with democrats, listen to this? >> i think having bipartisan would be a big, big improvement. i think that this is going to end up being a very good thing. >> it's time for both parties to come together and get to real reforms in this country.
>> the republicans and democrats finally decide to come together and repeal and replace obamacare will be ready to get the job done. heather: amy, wishful thinking? >> well, maybe not. there's already bipartisan tax plan for a long time and an opportunity to reach across aisle, big mistakes of obamacare is it was passed on the party line which means you don't have bipartisan buy-in, you have partisan attack. something as reforming tax code, i think, has to be a bipartisan effort and i think democrats they should have their feet to the fire, do you want to help the economy move forward. heather: you had people within the own party not agreeing with it. so how do you get democrats on board? >> it's going to be a challenge, no question about it. i think that democrats and republicans alike need to come to the table, need to build a
consensus, that's how you have a stronger legislative process. >> absolutely. >> and a stronger product as well. better for the american public and better for the american economy. we need to come together and actually govern and put party politics aside for two minutes and actually do what the american public sent people to washington to do and that is actually to, you know, craft legislation and make -- make government work for people. >> get it done. they are pushing for spring for this to happen. griff jenkins said in his report. >> do you believe that we have consensus right here on fox news. >> what a better way to start monday? heather: thank you both for joining us this morning. clayton: good thing we didn't have them debate the legging story. hail shattering this car in texas. and then this, spawning tornadoes across the sooner state, the storms are on the
move right now and meteorologist is dams is in the fox weather center tracking all these. good morning, adam. >> a couple of areas we are tracking. showers moving along the northeast eventually here today and a few folks maybe hanging onto winter-like temperatures, i do think we are going to continue to see off and on mix by new york city and washington, d.c. and farther to the south, these are general spring thunderstorms, not big weather there. the big weather farther off to the center of the country. we are looking at the line of thunderstorms moving up to the mississippi river. that later today is going to be bringing at least a threat of severe weather. you see our bulls eye over the memphis area. small chance of tornadoes, clayton. clayton: appreciate it. heather: brian kilmeade standing by to tell us what's on "fox &
