this show is about analyzing criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i am given to doing anyway. staying in tough with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. not only does senator rubio just care about rich people but somehow he thinks raising the minimum wage is a bad idea for the middle class. but we do care about them, right? vo: the war room tonight at 6 eastern alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets

6:15 am
was still working. but [ inaudible ] is not nearly as funny as she thinks she is. >> stephanie: i was just saying you know, the point i have made on the show before the joke the president made you were there for the white house correspondence dinner. michael douglas was there and he said michael what is your secret, could it be that you live in a liberal -- liberal fantasy [ inaudible ] world where he writes all of the lines? >> yeah, let's be clear. the president said it during his press conference the other day. you guys keep asking me why i can't get the republicans to behave. it's their job to ask that question. he didn't force these guys to act like grown-ups. we know mitch mcconnell said not to cooperate on anything. and speaker boehner can't do anything, because if he does
6:16 am
then his own caucus will boot him out of the speakership. >> stephanie: yeah look at pat toomey admitted -- he said he couldn't get republicans to vote for background checks because they didn't want to, quote unquote, be seen as helping the president. >> right. and if mcconnell had told the caucus, do whatever you want on this, and if the nra hadn't have scored the vote toomey said the bill would have probably gotten 70 votes. >> stephanie: right. and how morally repugnant is that? they didn't want to stop seeing children be slaughter, but they -- >> oh stephanie. >> stephanie: he said it didn't pass because we're so politicized. are some on my side who didn't want to help the president get something done.
6:17 am
i mean really? >> absolutely. look at how they treat people who compromise in the slightest? how many senator have lost renomination to their senate seats in the republican party because they did anything with the president. look at dick lugar, bennett in utah -- >> stephanie: right. a was my whole point yesterday on tv, karl is -- literally if we can't get something done that 90% of the american people want done, and the fact that toomey whether he slipped or not and told the truth that tells you everything you need to know. this congress is provably obstructionist, and it's not fair to put it on the president. >> absolutely not. you can blame the president when two things happen. when democrats win the house back and get rid of the filibuster in the senate, the way it is used currently, and when those two things happen and
6:18 am
the president isn't able to get anything done, then you can blame the president. until then this is a guy who offered up social security on the chopping block to get the republicans to come to the table. i was ticked off to all get out when he did that, and very upset, but he did it to get republicans to the table, and they still won't come to the table. >> stephanie: thank you, and if i hear one more person start a sentence with lincoln johnson -- he does not have anywhere near the liberal major advertise -- >> not only did lyndon johnson have huge working major advertise but they weren't filibustering with 60 votes back then, and congress were more collegial. you are talking about a senate
6:19 am
that had southerns voting for civil rights reform knowing they wouldn't be reelected. these senates knew in their heart of hearts that 90% of their constituents supported x, y, andz and they didn't do it. >> stephanie: this article says it all republicans continue to obstruct the american public on everything. 88% for background checks 57% favor an balanced approach to deficit reduction -- on and on and on. >> yeah, i don't see why the president should have to compromise the american public's values. and certain media elites who just love to play contrarian go the other way. you can't be serious when you talk about the economy unless
6:20 am
you are willing to cut medicare and social security. you can't be serious about the economy unless you are willing to make drastic cuts. this is because they are in the pocket of these wealthy people that advertise in their programs and go to their fancy cocktail parties with and, you know, and until there are more people like you out there talk about what the truth really is that's not going to change. >> stephanie: i'll just be -- you and i will be here on the fringe together. >> i'm standing on a street corner right now. i have a sign. >> stephanie: karl frisch love you honey. see you next week. >> have a good one. >> stephanie: twenty-four minutes after the hour. right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: there's a tea party in her pants and you are

6:39 am
what at sandy hook, we should have a fuller discussion to make sure thatting didn't happen again. she said she hoped to find common ground but she didn't think the bill would have changed newtown. he said mental health seems to be an overriding issue on that list. yeah, a background check is designed to keep mental health people -- >> exactly. >> stephanie: that's what a background check does. >> get the background check passed, and then we can work on funding mental health. >> stephanie: oh god. >> in fact kelly ayotte you can introduce that bill. >> stephanie: how about that. since you are so interested in the outreach. pat toomey republican of pennsylvania who put forth this bill he said his party opposed
6:40 am
expanding background checks because they did not want to be seen as helping the president. it is more important to not help the president than to help kids not get shot in the face in their first grade class. he -- in subsequent comments he tried to walk that remark partway back, by noting republicans across the nation not just those in the senate. i see. that's incorrect. if you look at polls 92% of all americans want this. so it's the republicans specifically in congress. last week, toomey placed more of the blame on the president himself saying i would suggest the administration brought this problem on themselves. i think he ran his reelection campaign in a divisive way. really? the kind of way where you win,
6:41 am
you clearly set apart how your policies are different from your opponents. he divided americans, he was using ring sentiment of some americans towards others to generate support of himself. mitt romney was the one who stepped in his own do do with his 47%. really? that's not dividing americans. eye va. joe manchin -- as "the daily beast" writes supporters aim to line up a second shot for it with a new result. usually when you lose you lose and you lick your wounds but all of this polling and all of these senators that are in trouble, i think she is right. this isn't gun control, this gun sense. i'm a gun owner, i come from a gun culture, if i couldn't bring
6:42 am
validity to this issue, who will. he said we're going to pass this thing, don't give up. there is reason to make manchin seriously, she mentions the 90% polls, and conversely vulnerable democrats in red states louisiana, and north carolina are experiencing no ill effects, they voted for it. those on the fence that went the wrong direction are paying a price. they seem beholden to a special interest. and we talked about that manchin said the bill would have gotten the votes if the nra hadn't scored it. oh, you get a bad grade from wayne lapierre. >> oooooooooh. >> the bad scary man. >> stephanie: right. right.
6:43 am
and she also mentioned in the piece these new groups mayors against illegal guns americans for us is containable gun solutions, and sandy hook promise, which is the lobbying arm of the newtown parents. they are all startups gaining members and money. their very existence says that the old politics might not work anymore on guns. all of these groups are just getting started. he said i bet this will get to the president's desk in this term of congress. he said there is more to go on this fight. i like our chances. so i say yay. i say yay to all of that.

6:46 am
people take your guns away maybe that's okay. and this whole fundamentally changing [ inaudible ] how many years is fundamentally changing america, it's mitt romney it's any conservative, george bush fundamentally changed america. it's a word. it's not an eight-year long conspiracy. it's a friggin' word. it's not like the obama 2012 thing, and you can say this meant that his father when he was five years old, accidentally touched him in a really bad place. noo -- >> stephanie: kristin, i want to thank you. you have given us all a political orgasm. >> oh, god! oh, god you are good! oh, my god! >> stephanie: thank you, kristin. >> caller: thank you. >> stephanie: don't forget to call us.

6:54 am
>> caller: i hear this so much from americans when i listen to the media, and they don't have any idea how diverse europe is. our economy is doing just great. same with most of northern europe, germany, et cetera granted spain, disaster. italy, greece, yes. >> portugal. >> stephanie: yeah -- >> caller: but the thing they should keep in mind is that part of the reason that those countries have not been able to recover from the global crash, that we might call the bush crash, fundamental reason they haven't been able to recover is a, europe doesn't have a central strong bank. meaning countries can't devalue their own currency. so the spanish euro is basically
6:55 am
pegged to a strong german euro. so that causes a big problem, and then the second part of it is that they immediately and consistently ever since have gone for austerity, and austerity doesn't work. >> stephanie: you can always visit mitt romney's money in switzerland, right? [ laughter ] >> caller: yeah, i don't know where he keeps his money. but unfortunately i stay away from those people. like when michele bachmann was going to be swiss, remember that -- my mother let me know and i'm like let me at her. >> stephanie: yeah, i would turn this country into france better wine, better cheese. get your guns. get em.

[ laughter ] >> caller: i want to be the if i recall historian, i'm a history professor, and i have been listening to your show for years and years and years because as a history professor, i never work right? >> stephanie: right. >> caller: liberals see the past with pretty good clarity, and conservatives have no clue about the past, but seem to know the
6:57 am

7:36 am
we -- we think that the decision to take emergency contraception out from behind the pharmacy counter and make it available to those 15 and older is a really important step forward. that's going to expand access to birth control for people of all ages because right now when it's behind the pharmacy counter like that, women of all ages face barriers and hurdles to getting it. so that decision will move it out. make it more available. that's a big deal. that's important. at the same time we are disappointed by that appeal and we think that access should be further expanded because there's really no reason to have that age restriction. the science is pretty clear that you don't need that scientifically. >> stephanie: that's exactly it you can't say it enough this is not an abortion pill. we went through the stuff

yesterday. if someone is already pregnant. this has no effect correct? >> that's right. >> stephanie: and this is emergency contraception and it is timely and sensitive and that's why it is important, right? that it will be readily available. >> that's right. within five days of unprotected sex, you can take emergency contraception and avoid getting pregnant in the first place. so what we're really talking about here is one form of birth control that can really help curb unintended pregnancy and it matters a lot that it is going to be made more available. we think it should be made even more available and they should not be appealing this. >> stephanie: eric obviously there's all kinds of contraception, condoms whatever that are available not behind the counter -- no one is encouraging 11 year old girls to have sex. this is not encouraging
7:38 am
anything, is it? >> no, and there's plenty of scientific research showing that if emergency contraception is available to people of all ages it does nothing to increase their sexual activity and it does nothing to increase high-risk behavior. what it does is help them avoid unintended pregnancy and not get pregnant in the first place which you would think a lot of folks can support. you know, if you are against abortion, why wouldn't you do everything you possibly could do to prevent abortion. >> stephanie: yes, thank you. this should not be obstructed by politicians, and it is a step backwards for women's health. nobody is encouraging young girls to have sex, but that's exactly -- it goes right to the point. particularly if you are pro life
7:39 am
you should be for this right? >> exactly. >> stephanie: obama's approach to the issue has been heavily influenced with his experience of being the father of two school-aged daughters. he was basically backing up his health and human services secretary who questioned if there is enough data available to show that the morning after pill is safe enough for young girls, but as you say the science and physicians state. >> yeah, the science is really quite clear on this. but the concern that some folks have as parents are valid and important concerns. we face these in the parental notification context too around abortion, right? >> stephanie: right. >> we have to let folks know that, yes, as parents we want our kids to be able to talk to us about this stuff, and we hope they always can, but if for whatever reason they can't. the most important thing we want
7:40 am
for them is that they can get good health care and prevent unintended pregnancy and that's what making emergency contraception more available will help do. >> stephanie: yeah, absolutely. ironically you were saying that studies have shown this does not increase sexual activity. you know what does? abstinence pledges. >> that's right. >> stephanie: it is actually noting only -- stop sexual activity, it has increased. that's what is bad about getting so moralistic around these soert of issues right? >> yeah, i think that's right. and, you know, we have to listen to the science on stuff like this, and decades of real world experience and also strong science is what really shows that emergency contraception is just one more kind of birth control that is safe and
7:41 am
effective for people to use at all ages and so our -- you know, we hope either -- you know, through the course of this litigation or eventually under a final court order that access will be expanded much, much further, but it's -- it is nevertheless it is exciting to think about the fact that within a couple of months emergency contraception is not going to be locked up behind the pharmacy counter anymore. because we hear from women of all ages who say i try to go to cvs and the pharmacy closes at 10:00. i can't get it. >> stephanie: right. and what about the 15-year-old that is raped by her father? she has got to his his permission? you know what i'm saying. are all sorts of aspects to this. not to mention to a lot of kids don't have id. >> i think that's right. if you are talking about young

topic. first read the preamble of the constitution before any of those amendments one of the things the preamble calls for is the security and safety. a gun company that marketed to kids? they would be sued like crazy. they are able to market to todayer wills, and how the hell does the state of kentucky not prosecute those parents. they left a loaded firearm in a five year old's hands. >> stephanie: and gave it to him as a gift. it was his gun. >> caller: yeah, and left it loaded while he is sitting there with his two year old sister. in any other issue, whether it's soda pop or riding a bike without a helmet we as a country recognize certain risks and the fact that we turn a blind to it and don't prosecute
