1:03 pm
debate on his proposal. >> gregg: but first, we begin with the new report highlighting growing concerns over security at what may be one of the most unsafe airports in the nation, an undercover agent managing to get through not one but two security checkpoints at newark liberty airport with a fake bomb hidden in his pants. now blockbuster revelations from a former tsa screener shed ago disturbing light how these episodes could happen. arthel nevil is here. >> had he point out gaping holes at newark liberty airport chalking it up to silly policies and lazy workers. in an article in the new york post a screener wasn't surprised by february's incident that you mentioned and criticized those tasked with keeping america safe
1:04 pm
it's not a matter of if, a terrorist could board a plane but when. among other accusations screenings are substandard and violent requirements. workers don't need a high school diploma. half-hour bathroom breaks are normal and many supervisors are asleep at the wheels. officials maintain despite problems the system has worked. >> i wouldn't want to be a terrorists try to get to these planes. we have never had a terrorist get on these planes in last eleven and a half years. >>. >> reporter: that breach last month is one of long series of incidents. in october 2012, 25 employees were fired and 19 suspended for improperly screening baggage. in june 2012, eight people were fired for literally sleeping on the job. and in january, 2010 the
1:05 pm
terminal was shut down for six hours after a man ducked under security rope unnoticed by the tsa. we have reached out to the tsa for commented but nothing yet. no response from them as of yet. by the way, as for those pat-downs that some flyers find offensive, a former screener call them ridiculous you can't find anything using your back of your hand over certain areas of the body. >> gregg: that may be true. half-hour bathroom breaks? engrossed in reading the new york post. [ laughter ] >> gregg: okay, arthel nevil, thank you. >> heather: icy winter blast moving into the central part of the united states, parts of colorado getting this, more than a foot of snow yesterday forcing airlines to cancel hundreds of flights. passengers stranded for hours waiting for conditions to
1:06 pm
improve. >> i grinds the airport down to a halt. >> i'm beat down, i've been here 7:00 a.m.. they were trying to tell us for tuesday, that would keep us out here for a couple of days. we managed to find a flight to take us out of here tonight. >> heather: beat down, gregg. that is good description how a lot of them are feeling. the storm is heading east and parts of iowa and wisconsin could see several inches of snow tonight and tomorrow. >> battle over the federal budget is draging on in washington. no surprise there. the president though is scheduled to meet with top democratic and republican lawmakers on the hill this week. in fact more than once in an effort to reversed automatic budget cuts that went into effect the beginning of the month. it comes after a big dinner date with top republican senators and few others and a luncheon meeting with white house budget
1:07 pm
committee -- house budget committee chairman paul ryan who is working on his own proposal. let's turn to steve centanni. >> reporter: both sides are talking but they haven't reached an agreement in a battle over deficit reduction. congressman paul ryan chairman of the house budget committee did have lunch with the president on thursday and said today we'll find out in the coming weeks if its real insear out reach aimed at reaching common ground. ryan unveils his budget plan coming up on tuesday of this week. he says that is the only way to get america moving again is to balance the budget. >> we think we owe the american people a balanced budget. we want to respect hard working taxpayers and we think we have a responsible plan to balance the budget which the reason we do a balanced budget is not to make the numbers add up. it leads to a healthy growing economy that creates jobs.
1:08 pm
>> reporter: in addition to his lunch, he hosted a dozen republican members of congress for a dinner last week. it's part of an ongoing charm offensive as it is being called by the president aimed at reaching some kind of fiscal deal. democrats say it needs to be accompanied by movement on the g.o.p. side. >> the president has reached out more broadly among republicans which i think is a good thing. ultimately, of course, for us to reach an agreement everyone has to be willing to compromise. our republican colleagues are going to have to back on off their position when you can't close one single tax loophole for the purpose of reducing the deficit. >> reporter: the president has several meetings scheduled on capitol hill to meet with lawmakers with both parties this week. >> gregg: spring thaw, pick your metaphor. it may be four years too late.
1:09 pm
steve, thank you very much. >> heather: new fallout from the sequester budget cuts and how it is affecting the brave men and women who serve our country. the army is suspending it's tuition assistance for active duty and reserve members. that means soldiers who take weekend or night classes will have to pay for it themselves. >> soldiers are currently enrolled in courses that are approved tuition assistance then there is no change for them. they still have it approved, nod after today. >> bottom line is we hold congress is able to develop a budget that is approved by the president then we can reverse sequestration. >> heather: move will not affect benefits under the g.i. bill that paid for soldiers to attend colleges. >> gregg: a strained relationship between united states and afghanistan. afghan president hamid karzai making some rather wild claims that the u.s. and taliban are
1:10 pm
working together. the comments coming during defense secretary chuck hagel's official trip to that country. peter doocy reports from washington. >> reporter: afghan president made a sensational accusation against the united states this weekend telling a television audience he thinks the americans and the taliban have been coordinating terror attacks against civilians as recently as this week intending to show civilians how quickly the security situation will deteriorate after most u.s. troops have left the country. >> they are trying to frighten to think tlig twa the foreigners. we would be facing these sort of incidents. >> president karzai and chuck hagel cancelled a joint press conference for security reasons, but the two met anyway and hagel told the afghan president his claims are false. >> i told the president it was
1:11 pm
not true. that the united states was unilaterally working with the taliban in trying to negotiate anything. >> reporter: hagel says political pressure led karzai to speak out against the united states. john bolton gave a similar explanation this morning. >> it's a curious round of afghan politics to say the taliban and united states are cooperating but it's part of karzai's game. he wants to look independent of the united states and taliban. >> reporter: thinks swing through afghanistan is nearly done. he is expected back in washington tomorrow afternoon. >> gregg: peter, thanks. >> heather: we are now less than two days away from the conclave to elect a new pope. 115 cardinals from around the world are gathered in vatican city spending dated today in prayer in preparation for the secret vote. while the vatican itself is being transformed for the
1:12 pm
election meantime. amy kellogg is live in rome with more. >> reporter: in fact, heather, some of the cardinals gave mass here in rome. they have churches, they are assigned to churches when they become cardinals here in rome so they have a greater foothold here. there were huge crowds because there is a loss of curiosity on the part of italians toward some of the cardinals where there is a buzz. cardinal o'malley gave mass. at least one italian poll is putting him as the front run for the next pope. timothy dolan also gave mass amidst much excitement and curiosity he kept going on secret but there is a terrific spirit of fraternity and they are ready to vote. >> italians have a beautiful
1:13 pm
saying, you can only making with the dough you got. we say we want to be a good dough for the holy spirit to work through. >> reporter: cardinal dolan i have to say his typical joyous self. one of the italian journalists complimented on his italian and he laughed it off he does better after a couple. >> heather: thank you very much, we appreciate it. >> gregg: now to the story of seven construction workers kidnapped by islamist militant group have been killed. they were captured in a raid on a construction site in the northern state of bachi. they were citizens of italy, britain, greece and lebanon. william hague responding to the news today. >> it's great sadness i have to
1:14 pm
inform you we believe a british con construction worker that was taken hostage on 16th of february in northern nigeria and held hostage since then is likely to have been killed by his captures along with six other foreign nationals who were taken hostage at the same time. this is an act of pure cold-blooded murder which there can be no excuse or justification. the responsibility for this tragic outcome rests solely with the terrorists that took these people hostage and are now likely to have murdered them in cold blood. >> gregg: the terrorist group it carried out the raid inrevenge in atrocities by european nations against islam. >> heather: still to come an amazing journey to freedom for u.n. peacekeepers in syria.
1:15 pm
how they made it to safety. >> gregg: plus reports of a shocking breach of security in one of our nation's busiest airports. what a former agent has to say that should make flyers very concerned. >> heather: brand-new survey finding that many americans are ill prepared for retirement. tips for how you can save enough money through your golden years straight ahead. ♪ ♪ when i get older losing my head, many years from now ♪ ♪ will you be sending me a valentine ♪ ♪ birthday greetings, bottle of ♪ birthday greetings, bottle of wine ♪? how the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do.

1:20 pm
the hospital today. the 94-year-old underwent routine tests and he is doing well. >> gregg: all right. an eye-opening look at retirement security. developed countries showing folks living in norway, switzerland are set to live out in golden years in a fine and good way. work free, but the news is not so rosie for the united states as coming in number 19. does that retirement is pie in the sky dream for americans these days, maybe the grim years? that is what i'm thinking. we do have tips for you. let's turn to gary, he is a fox news contributor. here is what i don't understand. if the united states is top ranked when it comes to per capita income, how come we're at the bottom here essentially, number 19 when it comes to retirement security?
1:21 pm
>> basically tells you we are a very much spending society, americans are not watching their dollars. i have to tell you, this is something i talked about 30 years ago, 20 years ago, ten years ago. it's amazing with the proliferation of the web and all the experts out there that tell people, put hundred bucks a month away and 40 years it will be a monstrous number. people don't listen because they think about today. >> gregg: americans are classically procrastinators in many things they do. could it be that or do they perhaps believe erroneously they will live fine on social security and medicare? >> let's hope they are not thinking that social security and medicare are the under all, be all but that is part of it. it coming back down to education and when you make a dollar, ten cents of it put on the side. don't spend a dollar ten.
1:22 pm
we have been a credit card society for a sl long time. every time we get to a recession people started saving and they start spending and we're back at square one. when i saw the numbers i was amazed because i think we are educated society but it looks like people are not thinking twice about it. >> gregg: and especially when you consider how long the investment retirement vehicles have been around. the 401-k was initially created back in 1978, iras somewhere around the neighborhood as well and you think tax dollars, tax deferred money you can set aside for retirement. a lot of employers make some matching contributions, right? >> if there is anything government has gotten right over the last 30 years, it is just this. imagine, if you are 25% tax bracket to put $2,000 away every
1:23 pm
year you are getting 25% on your money putting it in retirement account and giving your savings down the road. so its win-win all the way around and amazing to me more people are not taking advantage of it. for me it's one of the greatest things as far as getting your retirement going. >> gregg: you know what else is out there, i don't think a lot of people know about this. that is annuities with monthly income for life plus benefits. i looked it up, ameri traded, vanguard and other investment companies. it's fairly reasonably inexpensive and you are paying anywhere from one and a half to 2% on service charges. should people look at that? >> you know, i have to tell you. when it comes to annuities may worry has been when i read the fine printed i don't think
1:24 pm
einstein can figure out what is in there. for some people it's a good way of going. its structured way of pitting dollars away. more and more people should start thinking about the word structure and not just every day pie in the sky and don't worry about it next year. people that i know that put the money away 30 years ago are multimillionaires from the article of compounding. the market has done nothing 12 years but before that you had a monstrous bull market. >> gregg: so individual retirement accounts, maybe annuities but be careful about it. what else? >> that is the best thing. more importantly whenever you make money, have a little sheet of paper for yourself and say okay, this is what i make. i can't spend this much. unfortunately this credit card society thing where people get a credit carder owe 5 grand and all i have to pay is ten dollars
1:25 pm
this month, i'm okay. the fact is money they owe they will have to pay one day. we've got to get away are from that. it's going to be tough to get away from. >> gregg: with the internet. you can go on to all of these websites that have what are called retirement calculators. they tell you exactly how to do it, where to go. how to structure it. you put all the components, your age and so on and so forth, aarp has one online. take advantage of the calculators, right? >> it's great you bring that up. if you are 25 years old you can punch the number at age of 65. if i made 5% of money, 2 grand a way, how much would i have? the numbers are huge but people don't want to take a step back at age 25, i'll take care of it 35 and then before you know it 35 and then take care of it 45.
1:26 pm
>> gregg: don't go higher than that. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> heather: flack go it is a controversial method of extracting natural gas from the ground. -- fracking but the industry says it is safe and working well and they pointed to pennsylvania for one example while in new york it is still banned. john stossel takes a look at fracking. >> protests grow. >> a lot of people are getting sick. >> you would think so since the anti-fracking movie includes this frightening scene. >> jesus christ. >> so much gas in his water he could light it. one when officials investigated the incident they concluded frablg go had nothing to do with it. it was just gas that is
1:27 pm
naturally in the ground. that happened. there are many places in america where no fracking is done, water still catches fire. this is lake in alaska. this man lives in new york where tracking is banned. yet.... >> heather: john's program live and complete stupidity -- myths, lies and stew mid zbleigt they hooked up a gas exit pipe deliberately to the water pipe to cry to create the impression this was all fracking when it was complete fraud. john has good stuff on that tonight. paul ryan has a plan balance the budget but it takes direct aim at the signature health care law? is it dead on arrival? >> president has it on path on debt crisis that will bring us a
1:28 pm
recession that gives us a european experience that we want to avoid. we wanted people going back to work and growing economy. we get that by balancing the budget. >> heather: plus, good news for lobster lovers. you wouldn't have to put away those bibs anytime soon, we'll tell you why. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ arrhea, gas, bloating? yes! one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. live the regular life. phillips'. without freshly-made pasta. you could also cut corners by making it without 100% real cheddar cheese. but wouldn't be stouffer's mac & cheese. just one of over 70 satisfying recipes for one from stouffer's.

1:32 pm
>>. >> gregg: an aggressive approach to curb drunk driving preventing people from buying alcohol and lawmakers in new mexico are now considering. it's picking up steam in the state house. dominic from the west coast newsroom. hi, dominic.
1:33 pm
>> reporter: this is bold idea. lawmakers want to stamp on state ids of convicted drunken drivers they are banned from buying alcohol. there are cutting measures with ignition interlock devices installed in the car. now lawmakers are deciding whether to issue specially marked licenses that will prevent the driver from buying alcohol of any kind from any vendor. we're talking stores and bars and talking restaurants but critics say applying the rule isn't realistic. it's likely to be little or no enforcement by vendors. >> when we take a look at how prolific alcohol is and where it is available and how it is available, to expect that to be enforceable and what the
1:34 pm
penalties shall is really beyond any resource that we have access to because it does take a lot of resources. >> reporter: and they have plenty of experience of drunk driving issues and the bill going through now, despite majoring backing in the new mexico state senate is feel good effort by politicians. the state representative behind the bill admits it will make a difference to the victims of drunken driver accidents and adds at least it's a new measure that doesn't go down the punitive route and mainly preventative. we'll see if it gets to prevent anything if it gets pass. >> heather: paul ryan making an announcement today. he says his new fiscal blueprint could balance the federal budget in ten years. doing so would involve repealing the president's healthcare plan.
1:35 pm
>> we don't think healthcare is going to be improved in this country. we think it's going to get very ugly over the next couple of years. that is why we are going to propose with a better healthcare system for the poor and people in the states, for medicare so we can actually have affordable health insurance for everybody including with preexisting conditions without costly government takeovers which is what obamacare represents. it repeals obamacare and replace it with a better system. >> heather: what is the likelihood of this plan passing. injecting us is tony faye and democratic strategist ms. maxwell. thank you for joining us. passed efforts have failed. you know the president's healthcare law, supreme court upheld the constitutionality of it. what the likelihood that it will
1:36 pm
pass this time around? >> zero. there is month chance of it happenings, it could pass the house but no chance to become law. mitt romney on ran on repealing obamacare and americans decided not to go that route. >> heather: why are they doing this again? >> you mentioned rightly, heather, that republicans in the past have taken too much of an ideological and political approach to reversing the negative impacted of obamacare. they passed house resolutions that are tha are not binding. i think it's very smart of congressman ryan he is making this large conversation about obamacare part of a budget process. he also said in this interview, we now for the first time in four years may actually have a budget presidential coming from the democratic senate. it's crazy we have operated that in four years. so instead of doing what conservatives want him to do to attach a rider to the resolution he is making it part of the
1:37 pm
larger conversation that looks at the next ten years and makes part of his budget proposal when reconciled with the senate will produce something that does focus on the fact that obamacare costs twice as much as initially projected and that is the number and that is fact now tells it is $1.3 trillion and puts in the larger context of balancing the budget which is something this president has shown a lack in doing. >> heather: what is the question. can we afford obamacare has it stands now. we have all these new numbers that are out by the congressional budget office that says it is going to cost so much more. >> i think many things in obamacare that are essential in cutting the deficit haven't gone into effect yet. many of the provisions don't start until 2014. the idea that it is destroying healthcare when the republicans had the chance to do all the
1:38 pm
things paul ryan is talking about during george w. bush and they didn't, i don't believe now he really wants to take it seriously. obamacare is the law of the land. we should learn to live with it. americans are going to like it when it all goes into effect. >> heather: you mentioned americans voting for it. here is something that came out. last week the joint committee on taxation, they released this report. it contains hundred different pages and talks about 21 tax increases that are contained within obamacare of which a dozen of them target americans earning less than 200,000, $250,000 for couples. was that something that all these voters that for it were aware of? i don't think so. >> let's correct the record. obamacare as an individual policy was not a referendum item in november. if you look at the recent
1:39 pm
polling only 36% of americans support obamacare as it stands. so the sole idea the president got re-elected and no questions asked about this enormously costly project that is going to add another sbyd that the president has no idea how he is going to pay for. number two, you point out effective pointed. president promised, no middle income tax that will be negatively affected by obamacare out of these, like the tanning are going to hit any american. number two, premiums we were promised premiums were going down. president had $2500 and the irs just this month announced that the average american family of four will see their payments go up by $4,000. that is not responsive from obamacare. >> heather: i have to wrap it up there. all of this coming on the heels of meeting with paul ryan, maybe
1:40 pm
this means there is some sort of compromise in the works. we'll see what happens. >> he presents his budget on tuesday. >> coming up, more u.s. companies are testing employees to see if they are smokers and penalizing those with higher insurance costs. do you agree with the testing? get on twitter and tweet meet at heather childers. >> gregg: they are supposed to keep us safe in the skies but a shocking security breach by the tsa and tell all by an agent has many airline passengers extremely concerned.

1:55 pm
could have been arrested and charged under the display clause. >> gregg: put it up on the screen and read it. it's unlawful to move in processions or... >> gregg: now, i studied that. i can't figure out how occupy everything qualifies? >> the administration would have to argue and that occupies everything is a flag or a banner or device wearing something. i'm not saying i believe in this argument but they would have to say and brings attention to the occupy wall street, occupy everything movement. >> in this is disgrate grace, gregg. this is false arrest. false arrest case and it is a violation. how can you say something on a
1:56 pm
jacket or a shirt is somehow a flag or a banner of some sort. that would be like if you are wearing the american flag or you walking with a polo shirt they can arrest you. this is very building we wee got all these civil rights in the first place. >> gregg: you could be arrested for wearing ralph lawyer en? >> i got a button that says i love america but i don't think i'll be arrested. >> there is a supreme court decision, 1971 decision where a guy walked into a los angeles, california court and he was wearing an expletive. and supreme court says the same body we're talking about, that is the first amendment. it's covered by the first amendment. >> gregg: it's occupy everything. >> it doesn't compare. >> gregg: supreme court has repeatedly said that free speech is not entirely free.
1:57 pm
time, place and manner of restrictions is permissible as long as it serves a government interest. what is the government interest inside that supreme court building? he is not yelling, screaming. >> he was looking at an exhibit. if he was wearing with a group of people wearing this and motivating others to violate something, that is different. >> i just watched the video. there are few people around. the other protestors are outside the building. so he had no chance of riling up the crowd. >> gregg: here is my question, why would the supreme court so important or more important than where free speech is permitted? >> it only applies to the supreme court. what they are saying it's a first amendment free zone, really? >> gregg: i'm not sure the display clause has been constitutionally challenged. >> this is hypothetical situation. this is hypothetical parade or
1:58 pm
riling up the troops or whatever you want to call it. it never happened. it's ridiculous and he will prevail. >> other thing supreme court says restriction has to be content neutral. well, i think there could be violation of that. >> exactly. whatever is on your shirt according to one person it's not about what it says. to your point, david, there were people arrested saying the same thing outside the courted. >> and did the unlawful entry, they were careful with the arrest. >> gregg: we'll be right back. don't go away. with food. switch to citracal maximum plus d. it's the only calcium supplement that can be taken with or without food. my doctor recommends citracal maximum. it's all about absorption. by the armful? by the barrelful? e carful? how the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy,

2:04 pm
some find offensive, the former screens called them ridiculous saying it is impossible to find anything with the back of your hand. screening of children last about ten seconds going completely against t.s.a. protocol. while there are concerns over deficiencies officials point out that the system has worked. >> i don't want to encourage the terrorists to get the plains of. we have not had anyone get on successfully with the explosive devices in the united states in 11 1/2 years so something is working. >> in february, three undercover t.s.a. workers got through two security screeners at newark. one has a fake bomb according to a report. another was stopped. the latest breach is one in a long list of recent security-related incidents at newark. in october of 2012, 25 employees were fired and 19 suspended to

2:06 pm
ryan. steve joins us, now, live, from the washington, dc bureau. >> congressman paul ryan says the coming weeks will tell if president obama is sincere in trying to reach common ground with republicans. the chairman of the house budget committee has his own proposal that called for a balanced budget and is based on repeal of obamacare but paul ryan is watching the president to see if the current charm offensive with a flurry of bipartisan meetings will actually lead to results. >> will he resume the campaign mode? will he resume attacking republicans and resume what is long believed to be a land to win the 2014 elections? or will he sincerely change and try to find common ground and work with republicans to get something done? that is what we hope happens. >> the president so far has insisted on a balanced approach to deficit reduction, that includes more revenues gained from eliminating tax loopholes.
2:07 pm
democrats say republicans need to show willingness to compromise on that issue. >> unfortunately what we have had so far is a paralyzed republican leadership particularly in the house of representatives, who have not been able to act, not felt they have enough leeway because of their extremism in the republican conference, to do anything with the president. >> this week, the president plans to meet with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle when he goes to capitol hill. >>gregg: thank you, steve, from washington, dc. >>heather: as the federal government and states debate second amendment rights law enforcement in oklahoma practice protecting students. first responders cleared classroom after classroom taxpayer a shooter was actually in the building. the drill is part of a nation-wide program called "alert" teaching officers from different law enforcement agencies how to work together in

off all of his moves in what amounted to a slug fest against new york state kick boxing champion. this took place at a pub on long island in new york and in an interview this morning on america's news headquarters he explained why he did it and how he feels after the bout. >> he is a great guy, great fighter, and we had a true exhibition and it was good, it was real good, you know, community event with sell out crowd and i survived. but if i am wobbly i took a few shots to the head. >> no black eyes. it is nice to know their congressman can put up a fight in the ring and in washington, dc. what do you think? >>gregg: he obviously had a better right hook than a left hook. >>heather: got it! >>gregg: with sky roberting cost of health care some are testing employees to see if they smoke and they are charging

2:15 pm
test to verify whether they are smokers and base the cost of their health care plans on those results. we are joined by our guest. so, this isn't really unusual for companies. many companies charge smokers more but normally it is by the honor system, so the difference here is requiring employees to take a test. what do you think? >> i am a big believer, if business thinks it can save them money, and if they think they can get the employees to do certain things that can make the company better so be it. some companies did a little test here and they tried the honor system and they went to rewards and testing and suddenly, more people showed up as nicotine smokers so i don't mind this. i don't see it as big brother. it is companies realizing that costs of health care continue to skyrocket and they have to get
2:16 pm
their numbers in balance. >>heather: we threw this question out to the twitter world and we got a huge response. very mixed emotions. politics, one says, yes, charge smokers extra. texas instruments does this and says it was a big incentive for this person to quick. on the other hand, you have a doctor who says that they should test for eating chocolate and fast food since obesity causes more health insurance claims. that does lead us to the next question, what is next? >>guest: they already are doing cholesterol tests in some companies and whatever companies can do to have more healthy employees which cuts the costs down, they will do it informally and formally. again, i don't see a problem with this. i understand some people say it is a little bit too much. i have to tell you, employees
2:17 pm
could be complains but if they were running the companies they would understand what is going on here. it is a point of trying to get a person to act a certain way but it is for the benefit of the company so i don't see the problem. >>heather: the american lung association is one of the groups that actually has come out against this saying the tests themselves are not necessarily reliable. >>guest: i'm not the american lung association f they say that, maybe it is true. but there are plenty of others that say the tests work pretty darn well. again, it all comes back to the costs that are insane and out of hand and continue to go up for health insurance on the employer and the employee part. it is great that employers will say to an employee, we will give you $300 rebate to your part of the insurance if you show us that you are nicotine free. >>heather: what about just
2:18 pm
trusting your employee? what happened to that? you trust them enough to work for you but you will not trust them regarding whether they are a south america. >>guest: i guess it could hurt the morale but the companies that are doing this have recognized we are going to go this route. it is better for us. there have been companies that tried the testing and backed away because they recognized that it wasn't changing the playing field. it is on a company by company basis. they get to decide what is best for them. the companies are accountable to their bottom line, their shareholders and, also, the well-being of their employees which makes the business better. >>heather: thank you very much for joining us. >> senator rand paul making a dramatic stand on the u.s. senate floor this past week with

2:25 pm
convicted of drunk driving that you are banned from buying alcohol. this is quite far reaching. critics say, however, applying that rule is not realistic and it is likely to be little or no enforcement by the vendors. >> you ask a private industry to now be an enforcer of a law and i would say probably ten times out of ten there will be little to know enforcement of that. it is just not going to be practical. >>reporter: despite that, we have seen a similar law acted in alaska but the judge if this case has specifically been ordering a defendant not to buy alcohol and the state identification card is marked. in new mexico, they are actively attempting to have a block on the purchase of alcohol. if lawmakers get their way, this will be the most restrictive drunk driving elections we have seen in the country. >>gregg: thank you, dominic, from los angeles.
2:26 pm
>>heather: a californian mall sanctuary is re-opened to the public today less than a week after 24-year-old intern was fatally mauled by a male lion. investigators say she was attacked after the lion was able to lift the door of a partly closed feeding cage with its paw. today's re-opening was dedicated to her memory. now we are streaming live from california with the story. michelle? >>reporter: yes, heather, this has been a very somber mood for the people at project survival cat haven with visitors and workers come to show their support for her, and visiters, over 400 visitors came to honor her, and this man came from fresno to show his support. >> it has been very difficult... is hard to come to grips with something like this but we have to get ourself around this and realize
2:27 pm
that there are still cats to be saved and work to do and she would kick out butts if we would stop at this point. >>heather: that was the founder talking about diana. on the investigation, there were mixed reports and even what exactly happened to diana. it was an accident according to the sheriff deputies. >> unfortunately, the door to the cat section where she thought he was secured, was open. it appears at this time as if it is not likely the cat was able to get a closed door open and what we are finding out so far, it leads us to believe the door was accidentally left open. >> there were also other reports
2:28 pm
she was talking on her cell phone and that is false. she had a walkie-talkie and that is necessary procedure in place to have here at cat hay veteran. now, since friday, there have been over $4,000 in donation to cat haven which was re-opened under the consent of her parents. if you want to donate employees visit their website at www. >> thank you. >>gregg: a magical change in tune in thed with as the frosty relationship between president obama and congressional republicans appears to be warming up, just in time for spring. and your tax dollar. an example, the president hosting a big dinner with g.o.p. senators at the fancy hotel on wednesday night. you picked up that tab. on the surface, the ice looks to be melting. is this a genuine thank thaw?
2:29 pm
president obama's charm of on fencive is nothing more than cosmetic moves. we will bring in our political insiders, john leboutillier, former republican congressman for new york and doug schoen former pollster if bill clinton and pat caddell is out sick and we hope he is well soon. all right. so, after four years, the president finally decides he is going to meet with the other side. >> that is right. we will get to that in a second but the poll numbers are starting to drop, the scare tactics on sequester appear not to have worked, if not backfired, and the american people are saying, we need to govern, not just the blame game. >>gregg: why does it take four years to do this? >> the first two years he had control of the house of representatives and senate so why bother. why bother.
2:30 pm
then the tea party took over the republican side of the house and the re-election of the president was on so now is the first real period of no campaigning, when we can actually do some governing, he tried for january and february to govern the old way by steam rolling the g.o.p. the g.o.p. has drop nothing, really, to commend themselves except sit on -- stand firm, we are going to cut spending and we are not raising taxes. >> it is working if you look at polls. look at the poll, sequestration, who do you blame? nearly as many blame obama as republicans. >> and here is the point that people need to understand: going into sequester it was about 49 percent to 30 percent that people would blame the republicans, not the democrats. in actual fact, the fact the gap is now not 19 by five points between the two, that suggests that the president is losing
2:31 pm
support and losing it quickly. >>gregg: the government accounting office identify $364 billion in utter waste on stuff like this, robotic squirrels interacting with snakes. who cares? climate change musicals. pet shampoo projects, eating more caviar, don't do it. seniors playing online games. look at this list, it is absurd. and we have people like john cornyn studying the budget and saying, wait, their budget isn't going up, not down. >> we have to be adults. that stuff is emotional and we read it without really knowing how that spending goes on. there is no way to justify any of that stuff. >> the real money is in entitlements. neither side has gotten to that. neither side is talking about it. unless and until we get there
2:32 pm
--. >> doug, at dinner the other side, we fed it will republicans and conservative republicans, sitting with the president, what went on there? did they tell him what you just said? in order to fix this budget problem, mr. president, medicare, medicaid, social security, need to be adjusted to save? did he hear that? >> he may have heard it once or twice but he did not hear it in a serious and sustained way with a plan, a budget, and a clear commitment by the republicans to get it done. >> one happy talk dinner ain't going to do it. he also is looking, in addition to the sequestration of who gets the inflation he is looking at personal poll numbers. this poll was eight-point drop since december. and the gallup poll which is the latest that came out four hours ago, a drop of six points in his approval rating in one week. >> here is what is going on. bottom line, the president and
2:33 pm
his people monitor these polls each day and they do their own polls, they mirror what you see in public and they see that the charm offensive was a necessary counterweight to the president's brinksmanship on sequester. >> planes would fall out of the sky, old people will die and children would starve and the president shut down the white house to tours. listen to his own wife, michelle obama. >> this is well what the white house is all about, and i say this all the time, it is the people's house. it's a place that is steeped in history but also a place where everyone should feel welcome. that's why my husband and i have made it our mission to open up the house to add many people as we can. >> and a couple of months later he shuts it down. has it backfired? >> we now know that to keep it open for the tours is $18,000 a
2:34 pm
week. but we also found out that if you donate $500,000 to americans for action, obama's new organization, you give $500,000, you get four face to face meetings with the president. you can buy your way in. >>gregg: not president just for a couple of hours decided not to go out and campaign because the use of air force one costs $187 an,000 an hour. >> what if he said he wants to get past the sequester, to deal with the debt ceiling, the continuing resolution, so we have a real budget plan. >> that is what we want. i think the american people want. >> the white house announced they want a grand bargain by the end of july when the next debt ceiling vote is due. now county that is what we all
2:35 pm
want. >> what will they do to get there? >> they will have to reform medicare. that is the biggest driver of our annual spending and debt and medicaid and talk about social security. the proof is in the pudding. the president has never brought this up in a constructive way. >> if you look at simpson-bowles is it that offensive if you raise the retirement age so it is in sink with longevity. >> you means test social security and medicare, you raise the retirement age, you fix the cpi on social security, and you show some flexibility on tax reform and raising or lowering rates to try to have a seamless system. >> you have $650 billion in tax hike, will that get anymore, congressman? >> he may get revenue hikes by tax reform. >> he has not been willing to
2:36 pm
talk about it. the republicans are not eager to do it. i am still a little hopeful things are pushing the two sides together. simpson-bowles does not do medicare, that is not part of simpson-bowles and he still ran away from simpson-bowles. >>gregg: stick around, republican senator rand paul talking and talking and talking and he should have put on comfortable shows, with the filibuster lasting 13 hours. was this meaningful or a publicity stunt? our political insiders are back in a flash. ÷÷

c.i.a., to challenge the president's policy on drones specifically, whether the president has the authority to use drones on american citizens on u.s. soil. did he really start a meaningful national conversation on this? or was it just blatant grandstanding? what is he up to? >> i think this is all about 2016. bottom line, this was the weekend where jeb bush pulled a full aganstburg on all five top shows and rand paul was making what he thought an important point and question about drones. be clear, those questions were largely answered before he spoke. this is about his identity, the tea party, and 2016. ought the timetable on this is almost laughable to some people who have criticized senator paul. at 10:38 a.m., hold are makes
