9:40 am
insurance companies and i'm in d.c., there is no way there was not in cahoots. another thing is so far as ealthcare is, i understand by mandate, i don't think when the language was put in it was meant it, so eople on eventually was going to get here understanding, president obama said it would be volving thing in which has become and yes, it is a right and i think the mandate was more get people on it, i do not agree with the mandate, does understand it and it not need to be there. but people will not make -- there is a picture because the caller previously brought up media coverage. a picture in the "new york

9:44 am
ew york and retired down here, she had to go back to work, but in the year and a half she had to to -- she didn't have any nsurance when obamacare thing kicked in, she had insurance for that year and a half. but after she got a job, it cost lot more, too much for us to cover and it just, you know, good for the poor people. i'm an iraqi war veteran, get my veteran, i the v.a. and i other dayr a test the is good ust saying it for the poor people but rich
9:45 am
afford their own insurance, you know what i mean? host: south carolina, thanks. general, jeff sessions, submitted written to senate testimony concerning contact with russian his sador, saying at confirmation hearing senator al franken asked session what he do if there was evidence, anyone affiliated with the trump ampaign communicated with the russian government during the course of the campaign. mr. sessions responded, senator i'm not aware of the activities, i've been called a at a time or two in the campaign and i did not have communication with the russians it. i'm unable to comment on my answer was correct, senator sessions wrote in the letter to public , i noted in statement on march 2, 2017, i was surprised by the allegations question, which i had not heard before. i answered the question, which exchange t continuing of information during the campaign between trump
9:46 am
intermediaries for the russian government. i did not mention communications russian h the ambassador because the question did not ask about them. that is part of the story in the this" we'll go to next, james, north california. go ahead. caller: hey, good morning. how are you doing? thanks.'m well, caller: listen, i was interested by the last couple callers, last callers on the healthcare plan. i had the same feeling, it seems to me that again, affordable told that i e been have to allow 10% of the income health plan. that is one of the problems seems that i know health plan can help the deficit, whichhe i understand there are a lot of ompeting factors which, you know, move some legislators to
9:47 am
pass this. ut there are problems with the cost and so i just -- it is amazing more people don't talk about that. not afraid to talk about that. the gentleman who talked about the ife, she got a job and increase in the payment. so that is a real problem with you know, i'm a democrat, i don't look at it as political issue. look at adventure we need to o, on the other hand, i have watched price of medical care, hospital care, prescriptions go past 45 years and it seems like the insurance bloated and it seems like now we're being asked when trump he bloat and some conservatives talk me t competitiveness, to for like ke a nod competitive, the price will be lower. 15 or 20 years later, we're aying more, that doesn't hold water with me anymore. i hope i'm not complaining too
9:48 am
much, that is my take on that. go to tim in maryland, republican line. caller: hi. taking my call. i actually have a question and a statement on two different subjects. my statement regarding immigration. you know, i don't know if trump doing the right thing or wrong thing. what i have seen in our country s what the flood of people coming in, resources are dwindling very quickly. mega-farming going on, mega-cattle ranching going on, supply, food food chain and health of people. government it, our now has to start protecting ourselves insofar as the livelihood and start containing population, so dwindle.onment doesn't agree partially with trump's travel ban, but look at a bigger different m perspective than trump is.
9:49 am
to toing needs to be done save the environment and to living and hier lifestyles and just protect our resources. unrelated is healthcare oposed plan. trump talked about getting insurance across state lines and i have not heard or seen it, but knows urious if anyone whether or not in this proposed canslation if an individual go across state lines to get opposed to care as reduced cost? host: i'll look at the stuff, actually the president tweeted today and this is what he said when it came to that topic. of t worry, getting rid state lines promote competition in phases two and three of the rollout.e when it comes to border wall, talked e president about, there are cost estimates,
