>> stephanie: before we dive into the health care corner you reported at the top of the hour that the president is meeting with the civil liberty folks, and yesterday you had some thoughts, because we were talking about the schism on the left, and then jim and i got in a fight, and we had great makeup sex, but any way your thoughts? >> i don't like edward snowden, i think he is incredibly self-serving. i think this whole story shouldn't be about me let me do a series of interviews. i think that he had something going before he even started at booz allen hamilton. the whole thing doesn't make sense. it doesn't mean we shouldn't revisit the patriot act, but i think people who are heralded
6:11 am
him as a patriotic hero they are putting this in perspective. i think there are some sketchy details that people are trying to gloss over in the name of idealism. >> stephanie: yeah, i think just being careful that he is not a james o'keefe. when you rush to make someone a hero -- even jim has said there are some weird parts of this story that we don't know yet. >> yeah not the least of which his resume was full of discrepancies -- >> stephanie: and he is not a liberal, he is a libertarian that gave money to rand or ron paul. >> ron paul. >> yeah, i don't know him personally and have no incite into his past other than what

the free speech they have in china and russia? if you are trying to help the american people why are you leaking things to foreign powers, right? >> yeah, there's a little bit of fame whoring to this. there's no great sacrifice to what he is doing. >> stephanie: why do you keep comparing him to daniel ellsburg? >> ellsberg and greenwald and laura potrus created a foundation together. and they all are promoting this freedom of information foundation. i'm not saying there is a conspiracy, but ellsburg calling snowden a hero is not by accident. it's not like he came out of the woodwork and said by the way this guy is great -- they all
6:14 am
are working together and not in a nefarious way. >> stephanie: yeah. where do you go when dick cheney says he is a problem, and glen beck says he is a hero. >> yeah. >> i just know ellsberg has been championing him. >> stephanie: yeah. nurse jacki, time to change your little cap.

that they have to comply with they comply. [ cuckoo clock chimes ] >> stephanie: huh? >> yeah, it is called the medical loss ratio, which essentially means that 80% of your premium dollars has to actually been spent on gasp medical care. >> what? >> they can spend 20% of that money on marketing, advertising, whatever they want to spend it on, but 80% has to go to actual medical care. and what they are finding is that not only are the insurance companies having to return money to customers or businesses but they are also not charging as much because they don't want to have to deal with the rebates. >> stephanie: yeah 8.5 million people will get rebates because their health insurance provider spent too much on overhead and
6:16 am
not enough on medical care. and this is so important. the rule aims to force health insurance companies to streamline their businesses. remember everybody was fear mongering, the premiums are going to go way up, in addition the obama administration maintains the regulation has encouraged health insurers to cut overhead. so that's doubly working. >> yeah. and people shouldn't get all crazy, and say a hundred bucks is not a huge amount of money, and that money may go to your if you have an individual policy or it may go to your employer. you may not personally see it, but the money is being refunded in the instances that it is required to happen. but the all good things. when people say they don't like the affordable care act but they don't know what is in it --
6:17 am
>> stephanie: here is your check. >> right. it's your money being returned back to you, because the insurance companies are squandering. so it's like maybe we should give the money back to the people who paid it if you are not going to spend it on medical care. >> stephanie: yeah, knock, on wood, right, it's looking good so far. >> yeah there's not as much waist because it seems to be working, insurance companies aren't jacking prices up as high, because they realize they will have to pay it back down the line. the insurance companies do a lot of really shady things instead of putting extra money back into medical care they put extra money back into themselves to try to make it look like they are making less profit. these are ways the government is

working for you, and saying you know what this industry should be more regulated than it is because we're talking about something that people need which is health care. >> stephanie: another spectacular health care corner, by the way.

they put in unlike most blue states that put in more than they take out. >> caller: exactly. my point is imagine with these border agents, that would only boost their economies, and if you think we have a problem now in trying to bring them to the table, you know, as far as negotiating with them, imagine, you know if they have a sort of fledgling economy, along with these federal dollars that are consistently going to be coming in. and if you flood the border with these agents forget about ever reducing it. because they always go back to the point where they need us. >> i think adding a few more border agents is going to not have much effect on the economy of a state. >> well, look at these states

tribe yesterday performed their first same-sex marriage, and this is somebody maybe jacki might know more about, that there are a number of tribes across the country who are performing same-sex marriages. by tribal counsel tend to be conservative on this issue when they would talk amongst themselves, and yet they did vote recently to allow for same-sex marriages on sovereign tribal land. now i'm not sure how it scans out with spousal rights across the country, but we are considered sovereign. we do have our own government, and there are a number of things the indian tribes can do in association with the federal government, but we are basically like our own government. >> which tribe do you belong to? >> the potwata indians in
6:44 am
southwest michigan. and michigan enacted a constitutional amendment on a boll lot initiative, and they enacted against same-sex marriage. the way it's read in our tribal law is that marriage is constituted as a consensual -- i think it said marriage -- instead of saying marriage is only between a man and a woman. they say marriage is two between consenting adults for life or however they say it. >> stephanie: yeah, cindy it's just more evidence, i think -- it's just a sea change that is hitting every part of our society. look at lisa mercowski.

6:55 am
and wait and wait. that's like saying current pot offenders can't get out of jail until the marijuana trade is stopped. so anyway, the vast majority he wrotes of the gop house members and a small majority of senator know voting for this is risky politically. we heard a michele bachmann rally, and most of their thoughts consist of -- >> herp derp! >> stephanie: yeah someone actually yelled hey! you speculated his name was mongo. >> mongo! ahhhhh! >> stephanie: and thus we have it something that would obviously be good for the party in the long run, it gains risk
