up. and keeping texas down. more of us keeping more of our money. >>ç conservatives don't love h for a variety of reason ares. the questions that i asked chris too, do conservatives have something toç learn? >> i have to say, i have always said that chris christie is the one that i'm most concerned about regardless of who is on thatç platform with a d on the chest. we saw with romney even though he was a mormon and a lot of the more christian conservatives im, at the end of the day you have a democrat and a republican they will put their support to chris christie. but i think he has great appeal in new jersey and heç should.

in pennsylvania alone 95% of fire departments are volunteer and mostly volunteer. joining me now ed çmann, pennsylvania's state fire commissioner. i went to your website, in 2012 you responded to 140 calls with [age of 7 people per call. you sayç look. >> the affordable care act could ceasely put volunteer fire companies in a position where they will have to take theirç hard earned money and contribute
towards the health care and when volunteer fire companies already struggle with theç dollars the need to pay for equipment, we don't need the adiditional expense. >> you saved this nation ç$140 billion a year because you want to go out and help other americans and fight fires. if you have to start paying for( >> there isç no way that they would be able to come up with it. a lot of theo+ volunteer fire companies struggle with it. they would have to purchase the
necessaryç equipment on top of the debt that they may have for the equipment that they are using. the additional costs will force some of them to haveç to quit providing service. they will have to ask the local governme governments to raise taxes on the local çtaxpayers. you will looking to spend $86,000 for your new protective clothing. you ne is that why you have auctijpj like the one that you have posted on your website? >> that is one of the reasons why we did the auction. even though we were going to even thohe matchere going to to go for the grant funds to make sure that we had the funds we did the auction.

the only part that is free is the labor. what happens to the safety of millions of americans ifç we don't have volunteer fire departments. the question becomes when you have a fire or emergency fire departments do more than respond to fireç calls. you have other types of incidents in your community and in many places across the country it is the volunteerç fe service that responds when you call 911. >> seems like alz$ huge mess an huge problem. who would ever think that be linked to obama care. >> thank you for your time. i hope for the best. >> you can tweet me orç go to
throwing snowballs. theç football prior is the starting tight end. you have hundreds of students and they'reç pelleting cars wih snowballs, and a guy has a big blue market, and afterç pelt te cars, you say brown come in with his bucket and decide that snowballs are not enough. he dumped, he dumps the bucket or the bin, and then this guy, the second video, this is a former professor,ç and that's farrell brown dumping him in the face with a bucket full of snow. the professor walks out and confronts the students and says he's not going to file charges, but as you ]i!q imagine, farrell brown is in a little bit trouble because of that,
gretchen. >> what are the chances the car your pummeling is a professor. so the player has now apologized orç what? >> he apologized. he acknowledges that he took his actions too far, issuing a statement saying, and i'm quoting here, was one of the many uo students involved in the snowball fight on friday e" actions escalated to an inappropriate health and i apologize. we never should have engaged innocent people and i deeply regret my actions and will accept the consequences. now he willç not be allowed to play in the pal alamo bowl. that's a huge hit other. players are being disciplined. theç student newspaper says wht the big deal? a snowball fight. he threw some snow on somebody, but really, should he be kicked out of the bowl game because of that? >> it's controversial and that's a huge dealç after you work so
hard all season long, no alamo bowl. >> thank you for the story. >> meantime, football fans gearing up for the super bowl. yay! but the tickets getting ready to brave the cold airç in the open hear met life stadium in new jersey. but new could cut back on traditional pregame parties. organizers say they can't do much tailgating. julie has theç details. new rules. what is a football game without the tailgating. >> you can but you have to think small. the grilling there? not allowed. the dos andç don'ts ol' tailgating at the super bowl. you can't eat or drink inside your car. the don'ts? don't try to have fun outside your single parking space, and you got a lounge chair, don't think ofç sitting in it. >> can't take out a lounge chair, not be able to have a grill, and you're not going to be able to take up more than one
parking space, and all be watched very carefully. >> now, ofç course, the no-gril rule is a super bowl standard but usually tailgaters are allowed to spread out. not this year. and even if you have dropped thousands of dollars on tickets, it doesn't mean you can take a limo orç taxi to the gate. in fact without a parking pass, car doesn't get near the stadium, and you can't walk in either. there will be a reduced number of parking spots as more than half of$ the 28,000 spaces willç be taken by security and television equipment, which leaves only 13,000 parking spots for the use of fans. so, it's going to be a nightmare parking at the stadium. >> i can't think of anything worse than eating a hot doh inside my car with my can is screaming in the backseat. it's not officially banned. what you're saying it has to be within that -- >> it's very contained to your single space. in fact, theç nfl vice-presidet of events says, contrary to reports, there is no ban on
tailgating at super bowl xlviii, just can't bring grills or take up an empty parking space. you canç take public transportation for $51 to get there. i ain't cheap to go to the super bowl. >> thank you for explaining it all. big surprise was waiting for some airline passengers. started with something they did right before theç took off. you won't believe who was behind it. next.
>> here's an airline that made its passengers' christmas wishes come true. a santa asked theç passengers before they left what they wantedded for christmas. >> a choo-choo train. >> new socks and underwear. >> a tablet from and5y >> then santa's little elveses were racing around to getç the gifts so once the folks landed
the presents were waiting for them at baggage cliff. are you serious? a p.r. stunt by west jet, a canadian qi carrier. now breaking news on the nevada story. >> the breaks news begins at 3:00 from the fox news deck. a story we have been covering all day long, rescue teams have been searching in the bitter cold again today.ç new snow is -- searching all day in the snow, racing to find a couple and four children missing on the remote mountains of northwest nevada. take a look at our ribbon here. let's get to it.ç >> good afternoon to you. we have breaking news that's just been coming into us in the last few minutes, and first from fox at 3:00, onç this story we have been covering, rescue teams have been searching again today racing to find a couple and four children missing in a remote
