Ohio Gov. John Kasich tells CNN's Dana Bash that both parties "cower in the wings because of partisanship" while considering the GOP health care bill. Full interview: JOHN KASICH: Dana, this is the 21st century, and this is the craziest time I have ever seen in politics. And maybe this is a signal that, instead of people just confessing their loyalty to one party or the other, maybe they ought to be confessing their loyalty to the country. And, look, I have been attacked all of my career. And the fact is, is that you have got to stand up on your own two feet, explain how you feel about things and be a leader. I don't think we have enough leadership. I think there are too many people that cower in the wings because of partisanship, not just Republicans, Democrats as well. If you try to get a great number of governors, Republican or Democrat, to speak out on this, where are they? All you hear are crickets and chirping, because they're worried about upsetting their base. Dana, the problem we have in the country today is… BASH: Or getting — or getting ads run against them like that. KASICH: Pardon? BASH: Or having ads… KASICH: Well, I mean, so what? Then get — if you can't take a fastball on the inside, get out of politics. If you can't take a pitch thrown at you, and you can't get out of the batter's box, quit. Don't — don't — don't whine. And I don't think Senator Heller is whining. But I also want to say that not only Heller, but Sandoval, Brian Sandoval, is a great governor. His popularity is sky-high in Nevada. And you know what he's saying? I'm worried about poor people. You know what? Both parties, both parties ought to be worried about poor people, because I don't think either party particularly cares about helping poor people. You look at the rates of poverty, you look at the problems in this country, we have not designed a system to get people work. Everything we're talking about now, getting people healthy, giving them health care, is designed to get them to work. It's designed to give them an opportunity to have a better life. This is not some kind of a welfare system. This is a — look, if you're sick and you're hungry, you don't work. If you're healthy and you're fed, you can get a job.
