>> tucker: interesting. bret baier, thank you very s lo. appreciate it. that is itt for us tonight. tune in every night, at 9:00 p.m., we will be back tomorrow. sean hannity is next. don't miss it. >> sean: and thanks tucker, the obama nightmare is finally coming to an end. president obama just vanished giving his farewell address in his hometown of chicago, and he is already attempting to rewrite the history books to try and hide the truth of his failed presidency, and tonight we will explain what president obama does not want you to know about thein last eight years, and how president littrup now has the opportunity to fix the mess he is inheriting. that is tonight's opening monologue. ♪ is a were just watching president obama spent time boasting about the economy. sachsco paint a much different picture. what is exactly true is this.
he oversaw the precipitous decline of the american economy. that is a fact. here is why. under president obama, we have seen the lowest labor participation rates since the apostle ray 70s. he didn't mention that tonight. it has been the worst recovery sincest the 1940s. the lowest home ownership rate in 51 years. over 11 million more americans are on food stamps since he became president. over 43 million americans living in poverty, one in five american families without somebody in the labor force. not one person. one in six adult men ages 18-34, they are either incarcerated or. out of the labor force. and by the time he leaves office, president obama will have accumulated more debt than all the other residents before him to combine. speaking of that, when president obama finally leaves office, it will be almost $20 trillion, which means, during the past eight years, he has amassed $9.3 trillion in debt. a guy that wants and $9 trillion
in debt that is irresponsible. to mark that is unpatriotic. his assault on the business community, now get this. the estimated cost of regulation under obama. look at that number. a staggering 873 billion. dollars. that was a shocking $344 billion cost and epa regulations alone. the new regulations that have been finalized under president obama that checks and almost then of course, there is jobs. 3,000. he is always bragging about how many he has created but facts are facts. in the past eight years, america has lost over 300,000 manufacturing jobs into the president won't tell you that last year, america had a global trade deficit of over $732 billion.e that of course is health care, his signature legislation. remember when he repeatedly told you to keep your doctor, you keep your plan, on average you
say $2500 a year, remember this? >> no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise. to the american people. if you like your doctor, he will be able to keep your doctor. period. if you like your health carere plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan period. >> sean: millions of people lost their doctors, their plans, and that is the start of the obamacare disaster. premiums are exploding by 25% on average, in arizona, they are jumping by a stunning 116%. but the misery does not end there. remember when obama said that the average american family would save $2500 a year on health care?er the exact opposite has happened. the increase in health care costs for employer-sponsored benefits since 2008 is now $5,462, that is a 43% increase. deductibles are so high, you can't even afford to use your plan. they are essentially useless to
you. a choice in health care providers is also evaporating in states like alabama, alaska, south carolina, wyoming. people buying on the exchanges, they just have a single insurer to choose from. so much for choice. many insurers now pulling out of the obamacare exchanges because they are losing massive amounts of money. then the failed foreign policy. the guy that gave iran $150 billion and allows him to spin their centrifuges? he drew a redline in the the sand of assyria. assad crossed that redline, obama did nothing, a civil war which is an massive humanitarian crisis. he gave mohamed morsi, he gave him f-16s, tanks, 1.5 billion of your tax dollars. libya, he overthrew qaddafi, creating a hotbed for what isbi
isis. speaking of isis, number 2014. in 2015, just hours before the horrific isis attack in paris, the president said isis is contained. isis was never contained, they were never the jv, he left too early. and the recent isis was able to do that was because president obama created a vacuum.o he pulled out these american troops for purely political reasons. his legacy has now damaged the country, there is no doubt. good news tonight. we have a new president in ten days. he has promised to clean up this mess and he is very clear plan to do it. including creating millions of new jobs, reforming the tax code, three tax brackets, negotiating better and fair trade deals.
allowing multinational corporations to bring back trillions of dollars, a one-time 10% tax, energy independence, repealing and replacing obamacare, building a border wall, appointing originalist justices. and this is a president-elect that will slain radical islam and talk about destroying isis and all of the above. eliminating bureaucratic waste,l finally, president-elect trump has promised to remember the forgotten man, the people of michigan, the people in ohio, wisconsin, pennsylvania. the president-elect has already signaled that he is very seriously doing all that he can up to now to get congressional republicans to show some backbone. that they will stand on their principles of limited government, balanced budgets,
that they will pass his agenda, real, lasting change. hopefully it is coming our way. it will be up to you to hold these people accountable. and we will be doing it here. joining us now with reaction, laura ingraham. you were laughing during the whole speech. i can't take this. saying, "i can't take this." >> look at, the democrats have no one like obama now. when you watched him, the audacity of hope, that was the audacity of hope. i mean, you have just demonstrated beyond the shadow of a doubt how he has laid waste to our productivity, to this idea of a vibrant economy. to a foreign policy that has some semblance of pragmatism. he has laid waste to all of that. we have more racial division in the country. >> sean: he spent a lot of time on race tonight. >> a huge lot of racial
division. l every poll shows that the military has a deep amount of distrust for him. personally, he is popular. that doesn't surprise me at all. but he comes out there and he talks like he just won a hit lotto. h he basically said i am basicallk going to be on the scene. when you contrast that what reagan said in his farewell, we weren't just marking time. that's what he said. we left this city freer and stronger. president obama -- >> sean: he can't say that. >> rating came at a definitely bad time for economy. 18% interest rate that came off the iranian hostage crisis. for all of the barack obama strutting, he is a masterful politician. i will never take that away from him. >> sean: you thought there were crocodile tears. >> i have never seen a man. i am not a young person.
i have never seen a man grab a tissue. do you have a tissue here? and like this, wait for it, i have just never seen that. a man will be like, whatever. there is some good acting involved. i'm sure he is wistful.in eight years, it's been a long eight years. >> he's not dumb, the man is a very canny. he is very savvy and he knows -t i don't think he is a dumb person. >> sean: i think he is a man of his indoctrination. now you're going to ask for his birth certificate. and the whole world will go crazy. but here is what i never found from him. an ability to be pragmatic. i mean, he talked about partisanship and i'm like, you are the most partisan person i know. he never had an error of the bii government is over.
the end of welfare as we know it. he never breaks from that indoctrination. that frank marshall davis, mentality. >> he is still back, he goes back to chicago. was oprah there? a lot of things have changed in eight years. but look, he is the best that they have.e. they think cory booker is going to be the next obama? he is a once-in-a-lifetime politician for the democrats. so i'm trying to put myself in the position of a democrat today. to watch him, the first african-american president, and articulate in his own way and very bold. i mean, he came out there and gave it all he had for hillary clinton. he didn't leave anything on the field for hillary. >> sean: i never thought hey got into it. if i'm a democrat, this is what i am thinking. they lost the presidency.
13 senate seats, governorships, house seats. and 33 state houses, about a thousand seats total. >> so much of what the democrats pushed today was about emotion though. this is about theatrics here. republicans have to be a little bit better. trump is actually good at theatrics. you have to produce emotions. this was a well produced eventnt tonight. now, am i agreeing with his assessment? no, i am not.e events, when they brought him the columns, the seas are going to calm it. the clouds are going to part. there was an emotion to it. people were led to believe. he had an enormous turnout, among working-class voters. many have turned against the democratic party. but they were able to conjure up a motion about this idea of hope that was untethered to the reality of the day. i will give that to them. >> sean: that's really well
said. >> but that was a fantasy. we are not a country of 1987, with the economy we had back then. it is a different landscape and obama had a great opportunity to change the country for the better.adge i think sadly, for someone of his background, he squandered a lot of those opportunities as a partisan, as an ideologue. i think trump will oddly turn out to be much more pragmatic. and a lot more successful when it comes to the economic issuing. >> sean: you are not buying the narrative of donald trump and he might've been blackmailed, now we believe the russians? >> the soviets -- i lived in the soviet union. >> sean: when did you live there? >> in 1983. they are always looking for ways to undermine the american system. of course. none of this surprises me. when i got back to the united states, i heard that they
had a file of everyone who i had dinner with in leningrad back then. and they brought people in for questioning. this is what they do. i'm sure we will hear more about this as the days gone. the bottom line is, is this country stronger, freer, is united states more influential, are we better off economically than in 2008? >> sean: maybe you think i am mean-spirited, i didn't mention the russia reset. i didn't mention the cybersecurity, 23 million. you mentioned to me, it was either here or on the radio, you were one of the 23 million people. your files were hacked by the chinese. >> yes, they have the files.s. >> sean: putin has them. i want the secret laura ingraham files. >> they were very exciting, in the old days. look at where the country is today. are they more believing in thehe progressive agenda than they
were when barack obama came into office?e i would submit no. yes, he won the popular vote. the democrats said they won the popular vote for sure, they have the coastal elites. but the middle of the country is disaffected. it's not even an ideological thing. their policies don't work. their production of events can be beautiful. but their policies do not work. no matter what he saidid tonigh. >> sean: i don't see any economic hope out of his agenda. i don't -- if you break it down demographically, african-americans, hispanic americans, home ownership, i don't see one statistic that makes me feel, oh, that was a great eight years. we doubled the debt. on foreign policy, and i can't name a single place that isei better off. he tried to influence the elections in israel. the only thing i can think of and really give him credit for,
he gave the okay to get bin laden. i give him credit for that. i can't think of anything else and i am trying to be fair. >> bin laden, again, he had that brief shining moment where he has a strong, successful african-american president, with a beautiful family was an example for a lot of african-american families thinking, we can do anything. we can make it in this country. sadly, they kind of slid back into the identity politics. cory booker is another person was an amazing opportunity. but it's a reflexive impulse on the side of democrats, that has ripped this nation apart at the seams. it is obnoxious, it is toxic, and it is absolutely not going to be redundant but please look at the national rhetoric. >> sean: donald trump, the only thing that i hear that is worrying conservatives at this time is republicans in congresss go weak in the knees.
do they have a stiff enough backbone. a trillion dollar stimulus. how do we pay for it. people are concerned about that. and why did the republicans in the house and senate approve $10 trillion in new debt over ten years? i thought we were the people that balanced budgets? >> they are going to get rid of the department of education, they are going to government except for when they have both positive congress. and then government sadly grows. >> sean: so they're saying they going to take on more debt? >> this is a red flag going on for everyone watching the show right now. hold everyone accountable. you held obama accountable, hold this administration accountable. you're going to have to do a lot of things carefully in order to do it right. i understand that. >> sean: the trillions overseas. >> so much of it is medicare and
trump folks said, we are not getting into that. we've got to do a lot of that s but this is going to take a -- they have really good people on their team. they are little unpredictable but i don't think that's about thing. >> sean: laura, great to see you. obama focused on race relations. let's take a look at that. >> president obama: after my election, there was talk of a post-racial america. and such a vision, however well intended, was never realistic. i have lived long enough to know race relations are better than they were ten or 20 or 30 years ago, no matter what some folks say. we are not where we need to be. and all of us have more work to do. if every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hard-working white middle-class
and an undeserving minority, then workers of all shades are going to be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private offices. >> sean: old versus young, black versus white, the policies of the democratic party. the president, refusedng to address the tragic epidemic of violence that is devastated mostly african-americans in his hometown. an issue that has only gotten worse since he took office. let's look at the numbers. in just the first ten days of 2017, 81 people have been shot so far. last year, a startling 762 homicides perpetrated in the windy city, chicago. since january 2009, the monthta president obama took office, chicago has been ravaged. 3,929 murders.
for almost eight years. president obama has failed so miserably to curb violence in his own hometown. he barely mentioned it. joining us now, he may end up being the first democrat i support. new york is a bigger city. far less violent. because you had a mayor that took a lot of heat from a very liberal news media, we are sending all the cops with the areas of the most crime. stop and frisk saved lives. many minority lives. > absolutely, when you giuliani, bloomberg, de blasio -- big bird. he is trying to take the credit. demonstrating outside, the brooklyn bridge, what you want?
fry them like bacon and roll them. he let this thing go on and on. he put the environment when that creep from baltimore came into new york and assassinated those two cops when he was sitting in the car. that's why every cop turned his back when he went into the hospital. and now he is trying to take the credit for the reduction of crime. the credit has to go to the men and women of the new york city police department. as far as chicago goes, i saw a rahm emanuel standing there. he should've been back out on the street there, directing the south side homicides that are going on. you got a little girl sitting on the stoop, shot in the head. little girl going to school. this doesn't stop. this is the dirty little secret. this is like with our vets, dying every day. these things need to be dealt with. in new york city, they are down thank god. but chicago is up. >> sean: the president talked about race a lot tonight. he talked about the incendiary division in the country, he is one of the most response will i would argue. but he would insert himself from
the beginning of his presidency, the cambridge police actedul stupidly, michael brown, ferguson, missouri, freddie gray. baltimore, maryland. trayvon martin. george zimmerman. he is a four-time loser. he rushed to judgment, no evidence, no facts, no due process for anybody. l and he was wrong every time. why did he focus on those numbers? nearly 4,000 killed in his own home city. what did he cases that he was wrong about that had a big racial component? that had a big racial component? >> because he couldn't, becausee his progressive policies would fail.ma instead of inserting himself. i wish president obama would've inserted his family.am in the last eight years, marriages have increased in chicago. in the last eight years, abortions have decreased in the african-american community. we see more americans of african-american descent graduate high school.
less of them incarcerated. the real problem in chicago and across america, sean, is the breakdown of the family. if you have strong, intact families, i truly believe we would not see anywhere near the violence that we are experiencing. >> sean: in the eight years of the obama presidency, african-americans -- we have more african-americans out of the labor force, in poverty, on food stamps, i've given the statistic regularly. why? why was he unable to fulfill that promise? >> he would have to talk about the black community slavish devotion that has destroyed them since the great government, since the 1960s, the civil rights movement and the war on poverty. these policies have done more to destroyed not just the black community but the culture as ae whole, since they been implemented. >> you know, sean, this president is a very articulate man. he had the opportunity for the
last eight years to bring us all together. i to break down -- i think race relationships now are at the worst that i've seen in the last ten years. with this black lives matter phony nonsense, all they want to do is divide and all they want to do is bring violence. he brings black lives matter into the white house, let's not divide. he was the first black president. he could have brought us all together. what he did was divide, starting with trayvon. that poor woman that was shot in orlando. that african-american cop that was gunned down. just the other day. these officers are putting their lives on the line. those cops in dallas, we all had tears in our eyes. real tears.ti they were trying to let these people demonstrate peacefully.e and they were gunned down. the outrage in this country. >> sean: that raises, james, another question. that is the black lives matter
group.p. i mentioned the four high-profile race cases that he inserted himself into as an attorney and president. i think it was unwise especially without due process or evidencee being produced. then he invites a group that is on tape chanting "pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon." how do you possibly justify dissociation as somebody who says that wants to be a racial hero? >> the argument was that the great uniter, not the great divider. we've already talked about it ad nauseam. it is to divide and conquer. the race card has always been an easy card to play. instead of talking about the issues that are at the heart of the problem, the family, we start to look at other areas like gun control, other excuses and the fact of the matter is. when you have al sharpton as your race card, you can understand what the design is,
it is to create turmoil. it is to create chaos and that is what we have seen on blast for the last four or five years of the obama administration. >> sean: one of the things we really care about, and the african-american community. we have to go to cities like chicago but we need to clean up the violence. second thing is, the federal government, we spend more per capita on average, and we have the worst education rates. reading, writing, math. we are 19th, 24th, 25th, respectively and all thesese different topics. how can we spend more money and have a big failure and noo urgency to fix the problem and let local communities have that money and they make those decisions? >> with education, they knock the charter schools. whether it be charter schools are public schools, i want the child to be able to read and write when they get out. what has he done for jobs in eight years?
at least he has got a job, he did nothing with that for eight years, he didn't do anything for jobs, the black community shoul' be outraged with these last eight years. he's done nothing. to me, to listen to him tonight, he speaks so fine. it's so well. but what did he do? >> sean: think you both for being with us. joining us now with much more, our friend, larry elder is with us. one of the things that i wasio thinking about as i was watching this tonight is because he didn't respect the separation of powers, equals of government, he did everything by executive fiat, rule of the pen there, i am thinking, donald trump in three hours will wipe out 75% of obama's agenda. they are already now working on
repealing and replacing obamacare. the only thing i see remaining is the debt, the deficit, the judges that he has appointed, and of course, internationally, the damage that he hasha create. what is his legacy? what did he point to? >> his legacy is donald j. trump. that's what his legacy is. and the majority of the american people think that we are the wrong track of foreign policy. he is echoing the thought of people like cornell west, under obama, the black economy has suffered. black net worth is down, home ownership, home equity down, it hasn't been this wide in 25 years. sean, you and i have talkedee about the very small labor force participation rate for black men.n. it has never been this low since
they started tracking number. putting pressure on the backs of the american people, it does not work. >> sean: i grew up in a town called franklin square. it's in long island, new york. if i ever became president, i know people would laugh at that, i am just saying. if i ever became president -- it's not that funny, larry. if i was president and i read in my hometown where i grew up, the town i come from, when it's all said and done that is where i'm going to be, i think i would have gone back and paid a lot of attention to 4,000 people in my town were killed in an eight year. i think it would've been there often. to try to solve the problem. why was he missing in action in chicago? >> good question. you look at all that left wing brainpower, rahm emanuel, jesse jackson, and of course, obama has adopted chicago as his
adopted hometown. that ought to be a shining city on a hill. instead, its finances are in the toilet. we talked about the violence, they've done about 750 homicides in 2016. that substantially higher than 2015. 70% of these homicides areom unsolved. in a city that is a third white, a third black and a third hispanic, 70% of them are black on black. i have no idea where his policy is on that. >> sean: by the way, are you following this hysteria on some of the other networks about the russian spies and what might've been on donald trump? there might have been blackmail material? he is tw course it is fake news.ig and he pointed out that michael cohen was never in prague and aa lot of what has reported tonight has not been verified on other
networks. what you make of that? >> i think donald trump is bothered by the notion if it was not for vladimir putin, he would not have won the presidency. we have a bunch of conflict. george w. bush was lying on all 16 of our intelligence agencies, people are yelling that. i'm not sure who to believe. i do want to say this, you becoming president is just as likely as it was for donald trumpmp to become presidt a year ago. >> sean: if i'm going there, you are coming with me.al >> i will be press secretary. >> sean: [laughs] i guess the thing that is so amazing to me, a president that gave a speech tonight.
everyone is so worked up in the news media about well, the a russians may have tried, i assume the russians are hacking. they packed the white house, the irs, china did in 2014 and we haven't done anything. wikileaks have been on the scene for ten years. using taxpayer money into political operatives. what you make of that hypocrisy? >> they also hacked the cia director's personal email. even the democrat from california said that barack obama should have done a lot more to stop cyber attacks. what barack obama said is, he told putin to knock it off.on and prudent suddenly knocked it off. except, he didn't knock it off. they have not taken cyberr security seriously enough and that is why this country has been expose the way it has been exposed. >> sean: we need to fix it. good to see you, my friend.
here's to the heroes -- america's small business owners. and here's to the heroes behind the heroes, who use their expertise to keep those businesses covered. and here's to the heroes behind the heroes behind the heroes, who brought us delicious gyros. actually, the gyro hero owns vero's gyros, so he should have been with those first heroes. ha ha! that's better. so, to recap -- small business owners are heroes, and our heroes help heroes be heroes when they're not eating gyros delivered by -- ah, you know what i mean. ♪
♪ >> sean: welcome back to "hannity," reaction to the farewell address, the old buddy. the person that got us in this economic mess. oh, look at that. you had to be there. former economic advisor, my buddy, austan goolsbee. i'm not even going to say anything. i'm going to give you a chance. our friendship. the era of obama, thank god, is over. but while you speak about all the great economics, i will put up on the side of the screen the facts and the truth about the last eight years. we will play a little experiment. go. >> okay. if the dallas cowboys are 13-3, they won the nfc.
if you're going to concentrate on the three losses, that is okay. but i'm going to concentrate on the 13 wins. >> sean: wait until you see this tonight when you get home. >> number one, there was no depression, and there very well could have been in 2009 given the conditions when he came into office. number two, longest string of private sector job creation in the united states. >> sean: separate job growth. >> we've added more than 50 million jobs. not one demographic, the demographic is private sector jobs. 15 million. if you look at all of this post-recession period, poverty has gotten better, food stamps went down. the home ownership rate has finally stabilized after the housing crisis. >> sean: can we put those numbers up? go ahead. >> we were losing 800,000 jobs a
month and now we are adding more than 2 billion a year. 2 million. >> sean: what about the doubling of the debt? what about the worst recovery since the '40s? the lowest home ownership rate in 50 years. >> well, well, here you go again. all you want to do is go dwell on that first year. you know perfectly well -- no, when the recession ended, all of those measure got better.- >> sean: all right, we will count year number one, year number five, and year number seven. >> did you see the line in the president's speech, sean, he is tired of arguing. >> sean: i had a hard time watching it. >> he said, if you are tired of arguing with a stranger onsp the internet, why don't you go meet with someone in person and have a discussion? i thought of you, sean. i thought, i love our talks. we did, we had dinner.
>> sean: didn't i say nice things about you in that article? >> you did, i admit it. your viewers will go crazy. >> sean: he is very charming -- >> i have to take you to dinner, but i have to know, sean, do you want fries with your dinner? >> sean: [laughs] i am staying away from carbs. more with austan goolsbee after the break. s obama's farewell, it has been a long, brutal eight years. thank god it is coming to an end. an end end. we are the tv doctors of america. and we're partnering with cigna to help save lives. by getting you to a real doctor for an annual check-up. so go, know, and take control of your health. doctor poses.
time, i am going to give you a chance. i am sure this is an emotional night for you. you were there at grant parku eight years ago, weren't you? >> indeed, i was. >> sean: okay, i will give you the chance to ask any question you want about obama and i will answer. >> okay. sean, does it bother you that barack obama is massively more popular with the american people than donald trump is? >> sean: massively? donald trump's approval rating -- hang on, hello, do you want me to answer? you host "the austan goolsbee show" and you don't let the guy talk. amazing, you are like me. >> i learned from you, sean. >> sean: [laughs] that is probably true. fair point. the latest poll on trump was about 47% approval. latest i've seen on obama, 48% to 51%.
they seem about equal. >> no, 58%, even higher than ronald reagan was. does that bother you? >> sean: i never met the guy, but i think a lot of people seem to like him. he comes across as sincere, and i think a lot of people don't follow him as closely as i do. i think he has never broken from his rigid, radical indoctrination and i think it has hurt him. had he been more pragmatic, had had a sister soldier era of big government, he could have been more successful. besides obamacare, what has he done? >> a, he helped us avoid the depression. >> sean: again, yeah... >> b, obamacare, we will see if it's gone. >> sean: it's gone. >> he put in consumer financial protection and rewrote the financial sector. >> sean: that will be gone too. >> he killed osama bin laden. >> sean: i give him credit. >> he saved the auto industry.
got to give him some credit. i know you don't like it, but he reopened relations with cuba. >> sean: making friends with murdering dictators is a plus for you? >> i know, i said i knew you wouldn't like it. sean, you still have to explain why his popularity as he is leaving office is higher than ronald reagan's was when he left office. >> sean: reagan created 21 million new jobs in the longest period of peace time and economiced growth in american history to that point. and he took over a far worse economy than obama. 21% interest rates, double digit inflation. double unemployment. >> sean: yes, facts. everything i said is a fact. >> he took over a bad economy. it was not as bad as the one in 2008. going into 2009. >> sean: i am honestly -- >> i'm not belittling -- ronald reagan's recovery was a very strong recovery.
>> sean: i give you an eight, because you are a professor. i am going to grade your loyalty for barack hussein obama. you are the most loyal soldier, i love loyalty. i admire loyalty. you are probably his greatest defender, you are the best at it and i give you an a+. >> that is kind of you. >> sean: you defended the impossible, but i give you an a+.he >> i am only loyal to the facts, sean. >> sean: god bless austan goolsbee, and i meant what ict said in that article. up next, tonight on "hannity"... >> we are going to use every tool at our disposal, through regulation, legislation, so that we can save people from this mess. >> sean: speaker paul ryan saying republicans plan to repeal and replace obamacare concurrently. finally, that is the way to do it, so how are they going to do it? up next.

replaced with. we will use every tool at our disposal, through legislation, through regulation, to bring replace concurrent along with repeal so we can save people with this mess. mercedes schlapp, a week ago paul ryan was saying, oh, i think we will repeal it sometims this year. >> right, they have to make sure 20 million americans are covered, that the taxes they get repealed, which is a good thing, that the revenue somehow is replaced, and they've got to make sure that the whole essence of our health care system doesn't collapse. because the bottom line here, sean, if it gets on the republican's shoulders thatt health care gets out of control, cost-wise, coverage-wise, it will be the republicans inheriting the mess from obama. >> sean: did you know it is illegal to buy a catastrophic plan? inexpensive for young people, ideal, high deductible. takes care of accidents, cancer: heart attack, god forbid.s
if you have that and you have health care savings accounts and allow these co-ops to develop like in wichita, kansas, a great system there, that would solve the problem to me. >> it would definitely help as well as increasing competition by selling insurance across state lines. what a concept. this is about increasing competition, having more choices for consumers. and obamacare, president obamaab promised to make it inexpensive. these premiums rise not just individual markets but family markets. i think, sean, it's ane opportunity for the republicans to show that they can not only repeal, which would be the easier side of it, they've got to have a positive vision. i know the democrats want the republicans to fail. >> not this democrat. i want to the country to
succeed. >> you are a patriot though. >> do you worry, mercedes, about a trillion dollars in infrastructure spending, do you worry about raising the debt ceiling 10 trillion? >> you know, of course i worry. we think about our own children who have to bear -- >> sean: why aren't republicans doing that?ur why don't they go with the penny plan or a freeze on spending and get rid of baseline budgets? >> what about bipartisanship, tax reform -- >> sean: don't we have to pay for it first? >> that's right. trump wants to use bonds for private individuals to help get private money. >> sean: energy independence. but we've got to have the moneyt first. >> we got to have the money, we've got to get a plan andy bring both sides in. >> you know the reality, the fact of entitlement, the bulk of our budget. >> sean: i've got to let you go. they are counting me down. ten, nine, eight, unfortunately
that is all the time we have left this evening. thank you for being with us, and we will see you. ten days left of obama. the world changes. thank god.d. are off the charts... sir! what's the status? there's a meteor hurtling towards earth. how long until impact? less than a minute. what do you want to do, sir? listen carefully... if we all switch to geico we could save 15% or more on car insurance. i like the sound of that. geico. because saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance is always a great answer.
