time,ican congress at the they put into place tax cuts for corporations that offshored jobs. that is why we ended up with in losing 750,000 jobs a real estate and banking crisis. 2009, nancy pelosi put it on the table that they wanted it through the congress, ut it was filibustered in the senate to remove these incentives to offshore jobs. you step forward into the trump administration, what he carrier, we have the giving tax ayers breaks to corporations that offshore jobs and now in indiana, they have taxpayers, state taxpayers paying to keep jobs there.
it is a tax incentive revolving corporations, big corporations get it coming and going. so for them, to say they are going to fix health care and jobs in america, i find it laughable, at least. i'd have to laugh because i can't take them serious. a moment for one more comment? host: quickly, other people are waiting. on the south america deal, i agree with that guy ecuador thing and since we turned our back on the america, china has been military n upgrading capabilities for over 10 years and it could be a problem in the future. the thing is that look at henry we inger and that is how treated -- kissinger is back in white anding in the house, so -- host: appreciate your calls and

timeout period and could actually be longer. to take screen shots to convince people this, but it is a fact. simply a fact. lied that you, he keep your doctor. pre-existing hat conditions would be covered and there is a case where they're and i cannot change my roll because i'd have to the dice, something would come up. host: that is william in new york city. he hearing is about to fwet underway at the office building, the mccain, chairman of armed services committee. john reed, side by side to get on the hearing on cyber threat. our coverage is on c-span3. c-span radio,g on will hear the hearing, as well. he general director clapper is there, general rogers, admiral rogers, rather, is there.

caller: good morning there. a simple question, i think. why couldn't they just instead spending all that money for policy, , or any other why couldn't they just extend medicare?and host: what do you think the reason is? know, that is what i'm asking? host: i'll see if other viewers listener consist weigh in. dan is next, hastings, michigan, morning, dan. caller: good morning, thanks for taking my call. i'll answer that question the had, that is because of the cost. the tax increases, the going to payre not it, that is one reason they from day one against this affordable care act. they didn't put any information it to help it, they just fought it because of the new taxes that is created. want to mention a few
points. people don't realize what is oing to happen when this goes away. number one, we will fw back to the old system, as soon as cost money ployer too much because of health care and rising cost, they will drop you. no law says they have to, that of the a.c.a. also, limits, if you get sick, cancer or anything like that, we're going back to the old ways, there is limits. once they reach x amount of dollars, they don't pay anymore. that i just read marsha, a was congresswoman from tennessee, put out a tweet yesterday or the asking constituents to weigh in. back and said, do not repeal. that was a state that carried trump. well, they're going on trump's care promise. "60 minutes" interview, he promised everybody, everybody would be coverage, h better lower costs. that is impossible.
sold everybody on getting licans on elected. they are talking two years, four ears, and if people don't realize what is going on in politics, the reason they are are g two years is they waiting until the 2018 election because they will throw in the edicare voucher program that paul ryan wants. so now, not only will you be to afford health care, you won't be able to afford medicare when it comes out. dan, how did you wind up seeing that tweet from congresswoman blackburn? caller: it is all over the internet today, everywhere. you can see it everywhere, all over the news. i hope it gets on a major news channel to show people. bandwagon on the that, you know, there wasn't enough information out there about it. soon as the election came and they talked, another article in prepare to pay
$1500 more for insurance after the repeal. host: dan, thanks for sharing with us this morning. more calls ahead. democrats.0 for republicans 202-748-8001. and independents 202-748-8002. open phones up until 10:00 eastern. house coming in 10:00 eastern for traditional reading of the they tution, something have been doing since the opening of the -- do my math, 113th, 112th session of congress underway at 10:00 eastern. they start legislative work in resolution king up condemning the u.s. vote or abstention from the vote in the u.n. security council a month go or couple weeks ago concerning israeli settlements. armed overing the senate services committee looking at potential hreats and russian hacking, couple other
