9:57 am
is not an easy job, i realize it -- but if he really puts the same determination into that subject as he is into other priorities, it would start a chain reaction that the states could make some headway. do you understand? i do. thank you for calling in. in detroit, would attacks or prices?all jack up kcb a kohl's sold or made in the u.s. would cost $2500 more they want. on abc, sean spicer reacted to what former attorney general michael mukasey says, saying i think the president -- i think the president is right that there was surveillance from the obama department of justice. reminded that they run on new and beginning on c-span radio. one more call from scott in arizona. good morning. caller: good morning. i am a retired military officer,
