STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): So you heard [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer [(D-NY)] say we're not celebrating, yet you see some of the images out of Capitol Hill last night in the middle of the night. People were taking selfies, there was a lot of happy faces.

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): There's Chuck Schumer who said he wasn't going to celebrate.

DOOCY: Yeah. Then we've got [Sen.] Elizabeth Warren [(D-MA)] outside, taking selfies with supporters. Ultimately --

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I laugh, too, that young people are out there celebrating. Congratulations, you now will pay a fine or you'll have to have insurance. Congratulations, the healthy people are paying for the sick people.
