3:00 am
rewards for good behavior. >> how would you handle that? >> it is difficult. my son is very skinny. >> we hope you have a great day. "fox & friends" starts right now. >> good morning. it is wednesday, may 29, 2013. i'm gretchen carlson. i hope you're going to have a great day. new overnight, a stunning announcement from minnesota congressman onetime presidential candidate michele bachmann. >> i have decided next year i will not seek a fifth congressional term. >>gretchen: details on her stunning decision ahead. >>steve: it only gets worse for the nation's top cop. new details today on eric holder's shopping spree. he was looking for a judge. who wants to subpoena fox news? >>brian: al qaeda bosses nail this diva terrorist for not filing expense reports and ignoring their calls. who knew terrorists took
3:01 am
job performance into -- i don't know. i didn't think they had a role to play. "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: like every other organization, it's good to know that al qaeda would have some sort of corporate structure where they would review the troops. >>gretchen: i think we talked about this before. haven't we discussed before that they have like a corporate structure? and they have soefrt -- sort of the head of the household and moving down. this may be dink with regard to resumes. let's get to headlines. republican congressman michele bachmann will not seek a fifth term next year. she made the announcement this morning in this sraob on her website. >> the law prohibits anyone serving as president of the united states for more than eight years. in my opinion, eight years is long enough for an individual to serve as a representative for a
3:02 am
specific congressional district. >>gretchen: michele bachmann is the first female republican congressman from minnesota. >> a man arrested for the stabbing of a french soldier. the soldier was on patrol in paris when the suspect came up from behind and slashed his throat. the suspect has a rap sheet and recently converted to radical islam. the soldier survived. the attack comes day after a pwrerbt soldier -- a british soldier was murdered in a terror attack in london. >> a leading college football player found dead. police do not suspect foul play. but his family told them finnerty might have been having a mental episode. he was only 30 years old. brand-new video on the
3:03 am
exact moment -- of the exact moment a freight train slammed into a garbage truck. this happened near baltimore. >> back up! >>gretchen: an explosion knocking 15 cars right off the track that sparked the fire for the blast felt miles away. >> you could feel the heat coming off of the flame. we were standing there looking at the loading dock. when it went, it knocked me down and my two other co-workers. >> i felt the heat off of the explosion. it scared me so bad. >>gretchen: several buildings completely demolished. the truck driver is in serious but stable condition. those are your headlines. >>steve: let's talk a little bit about the i.r.s. scandal. it's getting bigger. we heard in the beginning it is just low-level people in cincinnati. now we're finding out that letters have gone out that have the signatures not of
3:04 am
low-level operatives, of agents there at the i.r.s. in cincinnati, but at offices across the country and including lois lerner who, of course, last week went on administrative leave after she refused to quit and is getting paid $180,000 while watching television. >>brian: nbc went out and found letters shown to them. they requested information from an office in washington, so that shows it did go outside cincinnati asking for additional material for a tea party-type organization. they also say, it does note lerner's signature requesting additional information for one of the tea party groups appeared to be a stamp rather than the actual signature, but it goes to show you it was spreading beyond. now it's spreading beyond other journalistic entities. >>gretchen: what is important about this is we heard in the past week or so that some people had heard when they were being investigated this comes from higher ups in washington. but nothing was written down up until that point.
3:05 am
now if it's actually on paper, it's a different story. here's jay sekulow, an attorney who has received some of these white house letters. >> we have a letter that we received in our office on may 6 of this year from the i.r.s. asking for responses to entrue seive -- intrusive questions. we have a series of questions from last year from lois lerner herself, she is now on administrative leave. we've got letters from lawyers in washington, d.c. and, sean, i'm holding in my hand a lawsuit being filed in u.s. district court tomorrow morning representing 25 conservative groups, not all tea party groups. there are other conservative groups in this list. >>steve: that is what he's doing today. the interesting part was at the beginning of that sound bite from hannity last night, he said the letter went out may 6 of this year. this is not something that was happening in 2010 or 2011. it's still going on. >>gretchen: let me clarify. from washington, not
3:06 am
necessarily the white house. that remains up for grabs exactly where that information came from. >>brian: it's more than tea party groups. a virginia-based leadership group, they asked for a 501-c-3. their goal was to train young conservative activists. audited in 2011 and 2012. they were asked to produce 23 #,000 pages of documents for the i.r.s. and a bunch of questions about where the interns came from, where they are currently employed. that question came from the i.r.s.'s baltimore office. >>steve: the question is: did the i.r.s. target groups that support israel? in particular there is one called z street, they applied for a special tax-exempt status and they were really cracked down on, various application processes. they told the auditors -- they contacted washington and said why is it taking
3:07 am
so long, and they said -- the auditors did -- that apparently they were supposed to give special scrutiny to groups connected with israel. >>brian: diane gentry is the one who said it. >>gretchen: also religious groups. billy graham's group was looked into. this particular problem came out of the baltimore office of the i.r.s. it appears to be growing. >>brian: try to follow this. evidently the administration's policy with the west bank in israel is to get the settlers out. they want the settlers out. so there is this group, "the new york times" reported this in 2010, that applied for tax-exempt status and they were actually donating to west bank settlement. that is not good if you want to bring middle east peace from the obama perspective to that area. that's get the israelis out
3:08 am
into israel proper. these people were put through hoops as the american government said i don't want your organization supported. i don't want them green lighted. the american treasury was giving them problems. >>steve: the question is were people at the i.r.s. saying that the state department doesn't want settlements in israel. z street is trying to build settlements, so let's crack down on them. was that happening? let's hope not. >>gretchen: the interesting thing is how many other groups are out there that we haven't heard about yet that potentially did not agree with president obama's policies? i mean if it's just west bank settlement groups, that's kind of an obscure group is it not? targeting tea parties and targeting patriots, that was a big, huge movement. but if we're going to start finding out about these little entities and all these different groups that didn't agree with specific different policies of this administration, this is going to become a much more
3:09 am
widespread investigation. >>brian: like a mob working underneath to forward their agenda. >>steve: let's move on to another particular scandal that the white house is weathering right now and that is eric holder and him signing off on, going ahead and looking into the records of james rose s-pb of fox news. -- james rosen of fox news. they are investigating whether he lied under oath when he said this regarding whether or not the d.o.j. could prosecute journalists. listen. >> that is not something i've ever been involved in or heard of or would think would be a wise policy. in fact, my view is quite the opposite. >>steve: the problem is holder personally to nbc signed off on the rosen case. while he says i was never involved in anything like that, that's not true. >>brian: he's
3:10 am
participated in conversation regarding the rosen case that talked about him at the very least aiding and abetting in a coconspiratorial fashion this person from, in the government that evidently gave intelligence -- mr. kim -- on the north korean situation, which gave that controversial news that if the u.n. issued sanctions against north korea, they would send missiles. they always send rockets. >>gretchen: i think this may be the most egregious thing that comes out of this case so far today, which is it's now becoming apparent that possibly eric holder was judge shopping so to speak. he had to go to a judge to get a subpoena to be able to look into james rosen's personal e-mails, phone calls, et cetera, who he was talking to. now it turns outs that apparently he went to not one but two, no three judges on a shopping spree to find a judge that would actually say let's not tell james rosen that we're doing this. let's not tell fox news or news corps that we're doing this. and i find that to be the
3:11 am
most egregious part of this story thus far. >>steve: the first two judges said no, we can't do that. you're prosecuting journalism eventually. judge royce lamberth overturned the first two judges and away we went. >>gretchen: that is a lot of deliberate work to go from one judge to two judge to three judges and then for eric holder to get under oath and say he's never done this and never had anything to do with this, to me that is one of the most important points of this story so far. >>steve: another great writer comes from the new yorker who has revealed who said what the government had against mr. kim, they had plenty without looking at the james rosen records. so why did they go ahead and target james rosen? they didn't need it to prosecute. >>brian: i don't understand what the attorney general is trying to say. he said in the daily beast,
3:12 am
monday morning when i looked in "the washington post," i realized -- to paraphrase -- how bad this is and i haven't gotten to the bottom. he's not satisfied yet. not satisfied yet? either he read it and blacked out, literally lost consciousness like hillary clinton did when she bumped her head, being totally forgetful or not being transparent or truthful. >>gretchen: the article yesterday that came out that now he's really thinking about it and he's not satisfied, sort of these buzzwords that don't mean anything. what does it mean to you? that this attorney general was involved in this story from the beginning or he just started thinking about it in recent time and maybe wants to readjust. >>steve: for him to say i didn't realize how bad it was until i read it in the paper and then there was this sense of personal remorse? come on. >>brian: 12 minutes after the hour. it is a story we're following. we have a young girl who
3:13 am
cannot get a lung transplant she needs to survive, because she is only 10 or 12. there is something you can do and we'll tell you next. >>steve: he got booted from the high school track team. now his father is suing for $40 million saying his son missed out on some college scholarships. does the father have a case? a debate straight ahead.

desperate plea for her child. i can't imagine what she's going through or what you're going through as you watch this little girl lay in the hospital bed waiting for an orange -- waiting for an organ. what is the update? >> there are no lungs. she is desperately holding on to life. we were rejected, the second request for little sarah. there will be no exception for sarah, no movement. children will stay at the back of the line. >>gretchen: you're talking about the united network for organ sharing. that is the group you need to petition to. you're saying they haven't khaepbd their -- changed their mind. the rule is you have to be 12 in order to get an adult lung and pediatric lungs are very rare? >> pretty rare. they let the children stand in the back of the line after the adults. if the adults don't want a lung they'll give them to the children, not much
3:19 am
different from not allowing them to get adult lungs. the reality is there's only 20 pediatric lungs every year and 2,000 adult lungs. by excluding the children from the adult lung pool they are keeping the children from getting lungs. the only lungs that will slide to the kids are those that are damaged or diseased. >>gretchen: sarah suffers from cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects the lungs. but she only became sick about 18 months ago; right? >> that is true. she's been battling the disease her whole life but she became very ill 18 months ago and she went on oxygen. she couldn't go to school anymore. she couldn't do her normal things. then about 100 days ago she went into the hospital full time and hasn't been out since. >>gretchen: i want to read the statement from optn, a different organization connected to the health and human services department with the united states government. the biological needs and circumstances of candidates younger than age 12 are different from add less --

nobody thankfully was hurt. brian, over to you and the lawyer. >>brian: does father really know best? in this one he thinks he does. he's suing his son's high school for $40 million for kicking him off the track team. in the lawsuit, irving myers claims his son was bullied, harassed and cut. but does he really have a case? here for our legal debate to talk about kids' sports, parents and more, arthur aidala and former prosecutor david schwartz. is this kid wronged because in eighth kid he was an undefeated champ in the 200, 400 and 800. is there something fundamentally wrong with that? >> i'm not a fan of these lawsuits. i think schools need to be able to do their schooling business. what the dad is saying here is, look, my kid was a superstar in eighth grade.
3:26 am
he won all these races, ran all of these events. i was a superstar not only in school but in the military. the kid has the genetics to do really well. but because of a personal animas between the coach and student, the kid gets thrown off the team. you know how important athletics are being a world-class coach yourself. >>brian: and david, can you sue to get your kid on the team, to get him off the bench to get him on to varsity? >> anybody can sue anybody in this country. however, not only am i not a big fan of these lawsuits, these lawsuits are destroying the court system. this is completely frivolous. you do not have a constitutional right to extra curricular activities. this is what that is. you have a right to an education but not extra curricular. >>brian: true or false you can get up to full tuition, full ride up to $60,000, 70,000 if you are that great athlete?
3:27 am
>> there is the emotional damages and the real damages. if this kid is as spectacular through his high school career as he was in eighth grade and then goes on to spectacular college and goes to the e-limb picks and is on the -- olympics and is on the cover of the wheaties box, how much is that worth? >>brian: the father says he was unbelievable in eighth grade and this is about him racing certain events the coach didn't want him to race. he says kids have rights too. all this may be very sympathetic. it doesn't matter. you still have no case. you do not have a right -- >> the coach's decision is arbitrary and caprice. >>brian: he was discriminated on the basis of race, religion -- >> what about personality? >>brian: you have a great personal but even your personality -- >> his father ticked the
3:28 am
coach off and coach doesn't like the dad so he hurts the child. >>brian: i've lost track of things. arthur, that's the way you order lunch. the bottom line is it's extra curricular activity -- >> you know how a parent can be wrecked and a child can be wrecked when -- >> transfer schools. >>brian: transfer schools, that's the answer. thank you, arthur. we have to rest now. we're out of time. >> the defense rests. >>brian: two minutes before the bottom of the hour. next, he's quitting soccer but david beckham is not going away. we have details going up and soon he'll put his shirt on. how do you fight crimes on the streets of america in america's most violent cities? a green beret shows anna

3:34 am
been doing wrong. why didn't you return our phone calls? why didn't you answer the phone? why in particular did you botch that kidnapping of the canadian diplomat? you didn't ask for enough money. >>gretchen: what really got me was apparently he also botched filing expense reports and also he was not a team player. >>brian: he went out on his own. >>gretchen: how do you file expense reports to people hiding in caves? >>brian: i'm amazing. >>steve: the hard part is getting a receipt for c-4. >>brian: amazing they have gotten to this level. he says the problem with you is you don't want to follow. you only want to be followed. he says you're right. i'm on my own now. he formed his own terror organization. i don't know how long he has to wait for his 501-c-4. >>steve: when he was with al qaeda, they said you haven't carried out anything spectacular. so far on his own he's killed in one instance over 100 people. it looks as if he was
3:35 am
involved in that plant storming where they did take hostages. >>brian: there is a structure for terror. >>steve: we've got headlines on wednesday. an american mother jailed in mexico. we'll find out today if she can go free. she was with her husband on their way back to arizona from a family funeral in mexico. authorities arrested her on drug smuggling charges. they claim they found marijuana under her seat on the bus. they were riding upon. her daughter says the mom was framed. >> let her come home. let her come home. she is's innocent. >> we're finding there's so much red tape and bureaucracy in the mexican government just to get evidence that will easily prove their innocence submitted to the judge is a huge, huge bureaucratic mess. >>steve: the mexican emabout a says her rights to due process are being closely watched. >>gretchen: big development this morning in the benghazi terror attack

call off the climb when the weather got too bad. the record was broken last week by an 80-year-old japanese climber. man, do i feel lazy. >>gretchen: the smell of pizza too good. the delivery guy busted eating the toppings before he tkhreufrz -- delivers it. he was in the elevator picking off the pie. in 20 seconds he cleans it off, sticks it back in the box in his carrier and off to phaebg the -- to make the delivery. fortunately for him the video has not gone viral and now the russian pizza company is investigating. isn't it the case when you work in a restaurant you tire of that particular food? >>steve: he looks like he was starving. >>brian: i don't have deep dish pizza because we
3:38 am
worked in a place called my pie. we used to have to clean the pots. by the time people said it is time for your dinner break, have pizza, i'd say no thanks. i'll have the taco. >>gretchen: that's the abridged version. >>brian: eufg -- i have a longer version. nike hitting the brakes on making products for live strong charity. lance armstrong lost his personal sponsorship to nike after admitting to doping for seven tour de france titles. his playing career may be over but david beckham looking to make moves on the field. he is visiting miami where he's looking to make ownership of a soccer team. there's also a report that beckham may open up a restaurant in las vegas with gordon ramsey where ramsey will scream at people and then he'll
3:39 am
console them. >>gretchen: let's go to maria for the weather. >> good morning. we're out here in new york city where we actually have very dense fog. that is the story of most coastal areas on the northeast. temperatures will be warming up into the 80's. we have a storm system farther west. it is quite dangerous. anywhere from parts of texas all the way up to minnesota and wisconsin. even in the northeast we could be looking at severe storms. we have all the ingredients coming together to produce a severe weather outbreak especially as we lead into this afternoon and this evening. this area shaded in red is where we could actually see very violent tornadoes, longer track and maybe ef-3 strength storms. parts of kansas city and oklahoma and northern parts of texas. heed the warnings if they are issued for your county.
3:40 am
80's across the eastern part of the country. we've been talking about flooding ongoing across parts of iowa, next several days more rain, some spots maybe even seven inches. >>steve: we have plenty of spring rain. maria, thank you very much. >>gretchen: can counterinsurgency tactics used in iraq and afghanistan work at home? now a marine is using them on one of the most violent streets in america. >>steve: anna kooiman found out how this method is being used in the united states and the commonwealth of massachusetts. >> we've been learning about these neighborhoods where crime was so prevalent people didn't want to call 911. they were scared of retaliation. but now things are changing thanks to countercontinuum
3:41 am
policing. spinning field, massachusetts, ranked 12th most dangerous city in the united states. >> there was a lot of gang shootings, a lot of deaths in the neighborhood out in the open. they had no value for life at all. they could care less who was hit and who wasn't hit. drugs were rampant in the neighborhood. people were scared. >> it was incredible that i couldn't go out on the streets and walk by myself because i didn't know what could happen. >> a massachusetts state trooper, a green beret home from iraq came home with countercontinuum policing or c-3. counterinsurgency tactics are applied to local law enforcement. >> i came into the meeting, had an idea. >> c-3 leaders say the behavior of insurgents is overwhelmingly similar to drug dealers and gang bangers at home. >> they move into
3:42 am
neighborhoods and communities because they know they can freely operate and folks are not going to report on them. >> springfield's c-3 policing helps earn the trust of business owners and residents. anonymous tip hot lines are established. cops walk kids to school, lead community meetings and paint over graffiti. >> if you put up gang graffiti, we're going to make it painful for you to put it up. >> neighbors are reporting crimes boxing out criminals. what are some of the obstacles you've come across? >> trying to organize all the different n.g.o. groups on governmental agencies. we're not asking for money, not asking for resources. what we're asking for, whatever program you have up and running, a talent, let's bring that to bear in the north end. >> government agencies are working together more efficiently and the community feels safer. >> there's been a huge change. people are not talking. you see people finally come around again. kids are able to get outside. >> as for this trooper everything is coming full
3:43 am

>> it didn't sink in how bad this was until he read about it in the paper. >> from what i understand from talking to people close to holder is monday morning that the story appeared in the "washington post." big story, sitting at the kitchen table reading the paper and that's when it fully sinks in. not that he didn't realize there is going to be controversy here. but a big story in the washington post has a way of making you feel that in a personal way. >> he personally signed off on investigating james rosen. he knew about it from years ago.

>> i interviewed the attorney general. i can't look into his heart or soul. i can only tell you what he told me. he was speaking with some conviction when he talked to me. at this point the best way to judge how he feels about it is what he ends up doing about the controversy. and that is to say improving the guidelines. >> although with the shield law, we don't know in this case when it involves national security whether it would be better than the first amendment. >> as a general proposition, i think a lot of peep, a lot of reporters think that these decisions ought to be in the hands of an independent judge. >> do we have any idea if there are other reporters who have been investigated by the department of justice? we know about james rosen and

4:26 am
you say one of the tips is we aren't equal so we should recognize and appreciate the differences. >> i'm saying we're not the same. we all have equal potential. women feel in the workplace, half the women felt they were not being appreciated by men and 90% of the men thought they were appreciating the women. women often feel appreciated when you take extra time to find out what they are doing and let them express themselves like asking a few questions and saying that must be really frustrating. just a little bit more involvement. then women feel seen and valued. >> this is your next point. we're not mind readers. if a woman is not saying anything a person might think she has got nothing to say but in reality, what's going on? >> guys will be like playing
4:27 am
soccer, kicking the ball back and forth. but sometimes a woman is processing so much information, she is thinking about a lot of things and a man assumes she must not have anything to say if she doesn't speak up. so noticing and asking her saying what are you thinking about this, it's amazing how much more comes. when we take the time to hear diverse points of view that allows us to come up with better solutions. >> silence could be trouble for the guy because the woman is coming up with stuff. let's talk about what kind of feed back. tell me about what men want. >> what men are looking for is often they feel frustrated when women ask a lot of questions. it comes across as challenging and questioning abilities and so forth. so women have to soften their questions. >> what if one of the questions are -- >> one of the most annoying

list than get transplants. what we have is a strangulation by regulation, death by bureaucracy. i had an opportunity to speak with doctor stewart yesterday. one of the board members, a smart and compassionate man admitted to me that they don't have the data to make the decisions on how 10-year-olds can be treated. he said they will be looking at it soon and quickly. the question is, is it soon enough for sarah and the other children who are dying? >> the debate being that 10-year-olds can not be on this list, you have to be 12. but the fact of the matter is there are only about 20 pediatric lungs available but thousands of adult lungs? >> the children become the stepchildren as it were. the children become the least among us.

let's talk about the irs scandal 2.0. it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. despite what we were told earlier, it was not just cincinnati but offices all over the country. and on some documents it's not lower level people. it goes right up the food chain. listen to how apparently some of the groups are still getting the lessers as recently as may 6. >> we have a letter we received in our office on may 6 of this year from the irs asking for responses to intrusive questions. we have a series of letters from lois lernor herself. we have got letters. shawn, i'm holding in my hand
5:05 am
right here the lawsuit that has been filed, representing 25 conservative groups. >> many letters, including one from washington, not the state but washington d.c. it says lois lernor eo eo eor - name is on it, but it's stamped. >> if you hear something from washington d.c., a letter from somebody in office, and it's signed by them, they didn't sign it. essentially, that's what it sounds like. >> if lois is signing or stamping these letters, that flies in the face of what we had heard before. remember the story line was that she -- when she found out about it, told her underlings to stop
5:06 am
doing it and the story is they concerned to do it on their own. she is actually stamping these letters or somebody is doing it on her behalf, that could be one of the many reason ys she elected to take the fifth and not testify. >> it goes to show you, with a broader reach from more offices than you might have suspected but didn't know but now it's out. >> meanwhile, let's talk about not apparently just targeting conservative groups. there was an organization called v street based down in pennsylvania which is a pro israeli group. they apparently were targeted. they put the application in and it was taking forever and they called down and said why is it taking so long? they were told that they were supposed to give special scrutiny to groups connected
5:07 am
with israel. >> listen, if you're a worker for the irs, how could you say that? how could you be that transparent about your objectives? you're saying don't even try to hide it? >> if you called and talked to the irs as an individual, who would you call and say i can't believe this is happening. there are people who did bring this to the attention of others and said -- remember the journalist who we had on last week who received an apology. he would call the news media and say i have been targeted. this is what the irs is telling me and nobody believed him. >> i would immediately get a lawyer and say i'm not answering that. you're targeting me? how could you say that? >> if people are saying, okay, i talked to the irs agent and said the instructions are coming from
5:08 am
washington d.c., ding ding ding. that indicates that this was not low lying. apparently it goes right on up. how high up? >> they had to provide details with the relationship. where did you interns go and where do they work for now? it's the kind of questions a little beyond the pay out. >> another huge question is did eric holder lie under oath on may 15 when he gave testimony? the house judiciary committee is now asking that question and they want to know, listen to what eric holder said about
5:09 am
whether or not he was ever involved in looking into reporters' e-mails, phone calls, etc. here is eric holder. >> with regard to the potential prosecution of the press, that is not something that i have ever been involved in and heard of or would think would be a wise policy. my view is quite the opposite. >> what's interesting about that ishe was up on capital hill, regarding the use of the espionage act of 1970 to prosecute journalists. they were talking about the associated press case and he didn't think about the james rosen case, which mr. holder had personally signed off on a couple of years earlier. it does look as if it's not a lie, it's misleading. now the big question is whether or not he's going to be held in some sort of trouble. >> not only did he sign the
5:10 am
investigation saying he might be aiding and abetting criminal behavior but he also discussed it. the justices at the highest levels including with the attorney general. that is the quote from his own office. you can't have it both ways. >> and the story gets deeper. it appears that possibly this attorney general was judge shopping to find somebody who would actually sign off on giving that subpoena to look into james rosen's e-mails and phone calls. two judge s denied it. so it looks as if there was, you know, a plan here to continue this process. they went to another judge and yet ood judge.
5:11 am
>> exposed the president's kill list they investigated from the white house out. >> that didn't make any sense. they had plenty of information on mr. lee. they didn't need to go into james rosen's phone records but they did. how many other reporters out there has the department of justice looked into their records in ongoing investigations? nobody knew about this until the guy with the washington post wound up with blod on his hands.
5:12 am
>> we told you yesterday that the price of meat is up 22%. we will show you cheaper cuts that taste better. >> i'm all about minute steak. >> and eric holder is really sad for spying on james rosen. is feeling sorry and sad enough? wayne rogers is often sad. how does he handle it? mine was earned in djibouti, africa. 2004. vietnam in 1972.

5:17 am
want to know the truth. here you have the attorney general of the united states violating the constitution of the united states, the first amendment and going on a fishing expedition. he went judge shopping in order to get the subpoena, i mean, the. >> in order to get the subpoena, you're right, to get the subpoena -- >> well, you have got to go to three judges to do that and finally he gets the third one to sign off on it? he knows all of this. this is -- this is outrageous, really outrageous use of -- it's almost like a totalitarian government. >> the whole thing is disconcerting. all of the people who claim they were not responsible. to the attorney general to say
5:18 am
he never heard about it. do you find that intolerable? >> it's -- i find it's worse than that. i'm laughing because it's so le ludacris that these guys lie and say i didn't know that. he signed exit kn eed it and kn what he was doing. it's not enough that he should resign. he should go to jail. imagine an average citizen behaving like that. they would have him in a heartbeat. >> and we know about obama care. unimplementable that will be enforced by the irs. in light of what has been going on, how do -- how would you amend that process? >> i wouldn't amend it, i would cancel it. you have got to overturn this
5:19 am
act. it's over 2,200 pages. the people who passed it never read it. these are people we elect. there are 20,000 pages of regulation to enforce this act. nobody knows what it's going to act or what's going to happen and you let the fox in the hen house? nobody -- everyone was proud of it when it passed but no one is backing it now. and unions are now abandoning ship. >> not only that, but nobody -- the reason is nobody knows. nobody has any idea. >> you don't think the president knows? >> absolutely not. no. of course not. whether he's going to read 2,200 pages? none of those guys have read it. >> as a business owner who has to insure some workers, how do you feel about it? >> i don't know what's in it
5:20 am
either. they got a stack of regulations. how is anyone going to know this. it's an outrageous act. the reason the unions are against it is because they think companies are going to drop out. and their workers are going to be subject to something much wor worse. >> did you call hot lips off the set? >> no, i called her sweat off the set. >> i always wanted to ask that. >> thapnks for cashing in. >> and she loves president obama so much that she voted for him twice. a big update in how she is going to pay for it. and we told you yesterday the price of meat is up 2%. the cheaper cuts that taste better and i'm not talking rump roast. ♪ ♪ if loving you is wrong
