if you have copd like i do you know how hard it can be to breathe and what that feels like. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open a full 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups.
6:31 am
spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. and it's steroid-free. spiriva does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens your throat or tongue swells you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. does breathing with copd weigh you down? ask your doctor if spiriva can help. >> romney you can take it. >> a new ad we will play for you when we come back here with lynn sweet, chicago sun times methderr

is appropriate for him. what i wanted to talk about was regarding mitt romney and releasing of his tax forms. whenever bain purchased a business, wouldn't they look at a company's balance sheet looking at the tax returns, a number of years out to make sure that things were apropos before they went ahead and purchased the business? wouldn't it be the same thing about him releasing his tax forms? >> that's a decision -- well, you would think they would. here's the problem -- >> stephanie: i'm sitting in clear channel where they piled a lot of debt on us, outsourced a lot of jobs, a lot of our friends, bye-bye. i do know what i'm talking about. >> anywhere in the country, go to a clear channel station there are so many empty cubicle where is this company used to have at least a dozen more workers per floor. >> stephanie: oh no. everyone here is jamaican now and they have seven jobs. going to run six companies. would that be okay? for the same salary you were making just doing the first job.
