3:01 am
♪ pump it up ♪ jam it ♪ ♪ >> ladies and gentlemen, he is a crowd pleaser. 's been on this program a number of times. you'll love the dancing cop from providence, rhode island. tony lapore. >> that's my hometown. i know. >> tony, no wonder i can do the robot well. you might be my cousin. >> if that doesn't get you moving today, that is -- it makes me smile. >> i love it. >> do you remember him growing up? >> yes. tony and i go way back. we actually were both in trouble in the principal's office for doing the worm in the hallway. >> did you ever do this? >> peter -- >> which is the worm? >> okay. it's, you know, when your whole body -- >> yeah. why. that was also one that we busted
3:02 am
out. >> he made it. >> look at that guy. >> he was able to carry it through. i stopped at the 10 yard line. he went all the way down. that was a move i couldn't quite nail there. i love him. >> he's fantastic. he and peter johnson actually are going to be out on the streets of new york city where currently it is 24 degrees. tony's going to be directing some traffic. >> going to get some blood moving. >> that's right. >> how fun. meanwhile, today is friday the 13th. bad news, elizabeth, for obama care. >> the obama care deadline slipped. 12 oe 23 to the 31st. the white house is now asking insurance companies to actually accept late payments and still give individuals coverage in the interim. kathleen sebelius, she dialed the plan via conference call about how they're going to move the goalposts yet again. listen. >> consumers now have until december 23rd to sign up for coverage that begins on the 1st of january. insurers will now be required to accept payments until at least december 31st for coverage that
3:03 am
begins on january 1st. and we're encouraging insurers to allow insurers who pay portions of their premium, such as a downpayment, to be able to start their coverage on time. >> peter, did she just say that you can pay right up tilling, you know, midnight, till ryan seacrest drops the ball in times square and then one minute later you get coverage? can you imagine if you're working at the insurance company. they're thinking, are they crazy? we can't do that. >> this is proof positive that it's a mess. what she said is you can pay late, you can pay a partial payment and still have coverage and pay, as you said, one minute before. on top of that, there are 135,000 people that went into the federal program, people who couldn't get insurance because of pre-existing conditions. most of those folks, according to some reports, have not, have not signed up for obama care. >> apparently they're going to get a delay of one month. they're going to be allowed to sign up through the end of january.
3:04 am
>> those are the sickest people in america. >> yes. >> the obama care people said there would be 400,000. only 135,000 signed up. this augers badly for the program. >> the plan itself is also an issue. we have so many people who are expressing their sadness, disbelief and true anger that they've lost their plan. now that this is extended it leaves insurers scratching their heads on how to put the pieces together. it is having doctors giving the most ill prognosis of what's to come. you know, dr. jeffrey english testified in front of the committee and you also heard him here on the network. he's a neurologist who works with ms patients. we've had a decade of progress and treating patients and getting them on the medication that specifically works with them and now he is going to face a major obstacle. take a look. >> i'm not worried about my costs. i'm more worried about their medications, and i always said if people ask me, i'm not going
3:05 am
to stop this because of payments to doctors. i'm going to stop being a doctor when i know i can take care of somebody but i'm not allowed the medications i can provide. that i can't take kind of good care of patients. >> see, this is one of the problems. he's been giving this life saving medicine to ms patients under the last decade and under obama care that particular medicine is not covered. if somebody wants it, it's going to come out of their pocket. peter, we've been talking about this. we've been warning people about it for the last three or four -- >> yeah. and what's enough? i mean, kind of good care? what physicians are doing that to people. politi facts have come up with lies, every few weeks, every week depending on what politicians are saying. what they've now said is the lie of the year is if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. >> congratulations. >> that's become the lie of the year. >> congratulations.
3:06 am
in the -- you've got to love politifacts. kudos to them calling out the white house. >> surprising they would do that. >> let's see how many members of the mainstream media actually featured this. i can think of one cable channel i know they're not going to talk about. he started back in 2009, the president of the united states did. he updated it had this week. if you missed it, here's a little bit of what kept our president in trouble. >> first of all, if you've got your health insurance, you like your plan, you like your doctor, you can keep your plan. no be is talking about keepitak that away from you. if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan, period. if you like your health care plan, you can keep that, too. >> if you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance, period. end of story. >> wow. >> ladies and gentlemen, the lie of the year. >> that's the problem in the digital era, that we will have
3:07 am
that forever, infinitum. we can play that and hold him to his word because he won't hold himself to it. >> somebody who was his esteemed top advisor for a very long time in the white house and on the campaign trail, now he's an analyst over at that other channel where they're probably not talking much about lie of the year, here's david axlerod with a unique admission and a good way to spin this thing. >> i think part of it is being honest about it, and he has been honest about it. part of it is getting it fixed as best that you can. there's no doubt that that is at the core of the problem when you come to this measure, and i think he was ill-served because i'm sure when he said what he said he believed it. >> he believed it? well, then he would have to have trusted the people who were inventing it, nancy pelosi and company, to have been telling him the lie, but you know, the buck stops somewhere. >> well, there's david axlerod
3:08 am
saying that he was ill-served meaning other people screwed up and the president believed it. the issue is not whether he believed it but was it true? and it turns out not to be true as politifact says the lie of the -- >> absolutely, peter. you know who i believe? i believe heather. >> hi, elisabeth. >> selling books. >> good morning to you all. it is 8 minutes after the hour. developing overnight, another nfl game ends in violence. four people were stabbed outside mile high stadium in denver. one of them right now is in critical condition at the hospital. this happened about a half an hour after the broncos/chargers game ended last night. a fight breaking out in a privately owned parking lot. right now three suspects are in custody and they are talking. the stabbing has just one of several incidents involving football fans this year. last month or rather earlier
3:09 am
this month a fan died after a fight at arrowhead stadium in missouri. we'll keep watching this story. this video is heartbreaking. a massive rock slide leaving two people dead. two members of the family were killed when giant boulders came crashing down into their home in rockville, utah. this happened on the main highway in zion national park. and a stunning twist to tell you about in a newlywed murder case in montana. jordan graham admitting in detail that she pushed her husband, cody johnson, off a cliff in glacier national park. this happened right before the jury was about to start deliberations yesterday. in exchange for her guilty plea, prosecutors dropped the first degree murder charges against her. listen to this. >> you know, i think we believe in our case. we believe in the case that we put on, but we have an ethical obligation and discussed plea offers with our client and it's
3:10 am
their dezbli. >> graham still faces life in prison. talk about giving the shirt off your back. zach randolph handed his shirt to a young fan who has special needs. how sweet. those are your headlines. then he went on to give an award for community service. happy story to tell you about. >> good place. >> heather, thank you very much. >> thanks, heather. ten years ago today, saddam hussein found hiding out in this hole. >> oh, yes. >> but do you know it almost never happened. one of the men instrumental in tracking him down joins us next. and kanye west said performing is like being a cop. now one police chief firing back telling the rapper he better check himself before he wrecks himself. >> good advice.
3:11 am
3:12 am
3:13 am
3:14 am
a decade later you know saddam hussein was fo a spider hole ten years ago today. that hole screen right. but what you might not know is how one struggling army recruit turned interrogator was instrumental in helping us track down saddam hussein. army staff sergeant garrett maddock joins us from los angeles. he's currently a civilian interrogator for the department of defense. he's also the author of "mission black list number one." good morning to you, eric. >> good morning, steve. >> ten years. that was fast. i remember that whole week as if it were just about a month and a half ago. you were actually there. take us back to that time.
3:15 am
i know you're from oklahoma. you say that a voice from god told you to do what? >> well, when i was going to the university of oklahoma i had basically had a calling, i know it was from god, to join the military. my first three years i spent as an infantry guy, then i became an interrogator. >> okay. and when you became an interrogator you eventually were posted near ticrit which was saddam hussein's ancestral birth place, but when you started the job thonn nest you weren't very good as an interrogator. >> that's right, steve. i was taught to interrogate enemy prisoners from foreign countries military and we had to interrogate civilians from an insurgency so the techniques that the army taught back then, they just didn't work, so we had to -- we had to kind of work our
3:16 am
way through it to figure out how to get these individuals to talk and eventually cooperate. >> so you helped figure out this new way to interrogate them. what was it? >> well, when i got there i joined this delta force team, and this one delta force operator, he kind of took me under his wing and he said, let's figure out how to get him to talk. and what we realized, what was -- with these insurgents is that we just didn't understand their situation. and so we developed a technique where essentially we allowed them to get one step out the door, and when you get a prisoner to feel like, wow, i'm this close to being released, if i just cooperate. if i just give this interrogator useful information, then they're going to help me, then we started to learn what these civilian insurgents who basically had friends and families -- >> sure. >> -- they had their own needs, if we addressed those needs, they'd cooperate. >> absolutely. then you would start to -- you
3:17 am
know, they're almost out the door. yeah, just one more thing. they would invariably give you a little piece of the puzzle. eventually you started to put these pieces together and you said, wait a minute, saddam hussein likes fish. he has fish it seems like every meal so what did you do? >> we started to realize that saddam hussein, he did, he had these individual needs, one of which was fish. at the very end of the man hunt for saddam below dated this fish pond that his people had been stocking, and we knew that the people taking care of the fish pond would likely be able to lead us to his facilitators. one of the very last raids was of the fish pond and that interrogation led me to the one body guard who knew his location. >> and so they wound up going to one particular place, and tell us what happened ten years ago
3:18 am
today. >> well, the delta force team conducted a raid. we got our body guard, the one guy that i believed could take us to saddam, they brought him to me. i interrogated him, and after two hours he kind of looked me dead in the eye and he says, we've got to go now. we have to go right now, and we drew the map. we drew the sketch, and later that evening the delta force team went and conducted the raid just south of tikreet and the body guard, saddam's number one guy, actually led us directly to the hole. >> just like that. and that's the hole we're looking at right there. it was covered with a hunk of styrofoam and saddam hussein was down in that hole. he was disoriented. what a story. i know it's going to be a movie, and who is going to play you? >> robert pattinson will be playing me in the movie, steve. >> that's fantastic. that is awesome. >> yeah. >> do we know when it's going to come out?
3:19 am
>> they began filming this spring so i'm not in the hollywood world so i will wait and i have no idea when they'll actually hit the screen. >> well, you know what, he's got a lot of fans and you've got a lot of fans for what you all did ten years ago right now. eric maddox, today is a civilian interrogator for the department of defense. sir, thank you very much for your service and thanks for everything. good luck with the movie. >> thanks, buddy. have a good one. >> you as well. all right. great story. all right. 19 minutes now after the top of the hour on this friday. some schools making the flu shot mandatory. is that a good idea? medical a team is going to separate fact from fiction coming up next. and they promised transparency so why is the white house limiting access to reporters. jay carney's response, laughter. and our dancing cop still at it out in the hall. he's headed for 48th and 6th avenue. ladies and gentlemen, tony lapore.

3:24 am
elisabeth. >> peter, there's a new push to make the flu shot a requirement. a preschool just this week in new york city made it mandatory. new jersey and connecticut have similar mandates. some parents are up in arms about it. so is this really necessary? dr. marc siegel from the fox news medical aid team joins us to separate flu shots fact and fiction. thanks for being here. last year 165 children tragically died as a result of the flu. is this a direct reaction to that in your mind? >> i believe it is. i think it's a direct connection. i think it's a bold initiative. it was a very severe flu season last year. so far milder this year. we haven't gotten to the peak. dr. varma deputy commissioner here in new york city is coming out saying, look, under the age of 5, that's when kids get severe complications. what the flu shot does best is it decreases severity. you have to create a herd
3:25 am
immunity. kids are like a petri dish. preschool, everybody is sniffling, touching each other. you can't tell a kid wash their hands, stay away from another kid so it spreads from one to another. they will cut down on a tremendous amount of flu cases. i applaud this. >> the mandate is applauded. i'm sure a lot of parents are behind you. can you get the flu from a flu shot? let's go fact or fiction here. >> absolutely not. when they make a flu shot the first thing they do is kill the flu virus. they use a dead virus to make the vaccine. there is no way you can get the flu. now the reason this myth is out there, elisabeth is because you get flu like symptoms. it's an allergy. it will pass within 24 hours. >> the flu shot is 100% effective. fact or fiction? >> that's fiction. 60% effective. some years are better than others. every year we try to match the
3:26 am
flu shot with the prevailing strains that are going around the world. it's tough. we need a better flu shot for sure. we need one universal flu vaccine. they're working on it. this is the best we have and it's very useful. >> speaking of the best, some people think the nasal vaccine is better. they say get the nasal, it's more effective. >> i like the nasal. i've interviewed some flu experts around the country to say the same thing. we think it's more effective for the flu shot. for kids it's a good thing. you're less likely to have a reaction. there is a down side. you can't use it in kids with asthma or kids with any kind of lung or breathing problems. you don't want to use it in chronic or underlying conditions. >> can you catch the flu from someone who has the nasal strain? >> probably not but you can get a very mild version of it which is why we do not give it to people with immunocompromised conditions. >> flu shots contain mercury. >> boy, is that the biggest myth
3:27 am
out there. it's a fact that it contains murk mercury. the myth is that it will give kids autism. it's been studied and studied and studied. it has mercury in it. had has not been shown to cause autism. if you're afraid of that, you can get the flu shot without mercury in it. you can get versions without tamirasol. >> dr. segel, excellent advice there. >> great to see you. >> thanks for being us this morning. next up on the rundown, kanye west said performing is like being a cop. now a police chief is firing back and telling him he better check himself before he wrecks himself. and the white house says obama care just needs a better pr campaign. here's what they came up with. will that really work? and our dancing cop from providence, rhode island, still at it. that's the shopping cart right

twitter yesterday. the obama administration, you know, they said they need a new pr campaign to get people covered. they went #getcovered. their tweets are now inspiring mockery on the web. we have the first one that went out here that went across twitter. >> yeah. the white house -- >> a little yellow note like a post-it. >> initially they said obama held up a sign and said #getcovered. nobody should go broke because they get sick. first thing you know, ted cruz, somebody on their staff photo shopped their version. they took the president and they changed the words. they sure did. he was the first responder on twitter, i believe. it said, obama care canceled the plans that you had and liked. that's how you should get covered. >> a lot of americans are jumping on. mikey ramon photo shopped this version. your employer will be canceling your health insurance soon anyway. >> they're getting creative.

3:36 am
so here's what the white house press secretary, jay carney, had to say about that. >> i will not live to see the day and neither will you when independent journalists who cover the white house will say, you know what, i've got all the access i wanted today, this week, next month. that's not going to happen. >> 38 news organizations sent a letter to the white house demanding more access to the president. well, police chief from ohio has a message for kanye west after that singer compared performing on stage to the danger that police officers and our military face. david oliver is his name. he posted a letter on facebook suggesting that kanye abandon his career and join the military. listen to this. >> someone equating being a performer to being in a war, the comparison isn't even remotely close. >> this guy, oliver, signing off with this warning to the singer. check yourself before you wreck yourself. i like that saying. have to remember that one. and we have a wonderful update to share with you.

good morning. it's friday, december 13. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. another day, another obamacare delay. millions more of your money is handed over to obamacare navigators. but are they even signing anybody up? a stunning case out of texas. a teen-ager kills four people in a dui. he tells the court he's a victim of his parents' wealth. well, a judge agreed, but was justice served? the feds need more people, young people to enroll in obamacare. so here is what they came up with to sign up the young folk. ♪ sign up 'cause it's hot ♪ . >> did we mention you paid for that video where they instruct you to sign up while it's hot? you did. "fox & friends" hour two for this friday starts right now.
4:01 am
♪ grandma got run over by a reindeer ♪ ♪ walking home from our house christmas eve ♪ ♪ >> saying good-bye for the moment. look at that out on 48th street on the fox plaza. waking new york up. >> keeping everybody in line dancing his way out here. >> he's on the sidewalk because the taxi drivers here in new york city don't stop for anything, including a guy like him. >> thank you, tony. that was such fun. >> he's awesome. >> he is great. a back move a little bit. >> that made my friday for sure. >> speaking of stopping traffic, people yesterday a little before closing time stopped and heard
4:02 am
kathleen sebelius on a conference call because it sounds like they have moved the goal post once again. they've had a lot of trouble signing people up. now people are going to have more time to buy. the deadline had been december 15th. then they moved it to december 23rd. yesterday she announced, you can pay for it right up until midnight on new year's eve and you'll be covered the next day. she also essentially i guess trying to beg insurance companies -- listen, a lot of people are going to have new coverage, so if they have a doctor currently, but will not be in your plan, cover them anyway because that would really help us out for a month or two. >> blurred lines is the new theme song apparently for what's going o. insurers are thinking, how are we supposed to get information from someone signing up on the 31st and then turn it around in 24 hours the next day? certainly doctors are freaking out as well because they have no idea what's going to happen.
4:03 am
dr. eric novak is one on capitol hill. listen to his sentiments. >> no one knows what's going to happen january 1st. and to say that was an unforced error because of political realities, the great tragedy are really the tens of millions of americans and hard-working american families that have been suffering emotionally because of the uncertainty that the law created because of work that was not done, the lack of transparency, the unwillingness to release regulations. >> then the blurred lines, people trying to figure out who is getting twerked, we know $50 million have been paid now to obamacare knopf gators -- navigators. new grants by the federal government, almost $60 million. so the question becomes, why don't they just fix the problem? karl rove addressed it. what did he say? >> all together we've given out
4:04 am
$1.2 million to community groups to be, quote, navigators and 637 people have signed up using the web and using the navigators and using paper applications. so you can't even attribute all 637 people to the $1.2 million that you've spent to community groups to get them signed up. in the first month, the community groups got hundreds of thousands of dollars in the state of oregon and nobody signed up. in the state of delaware, they were spending something like $30,000 a week and nobody signed up. this navigator experience is going to be worth examining. >> he was talking about the paper applications. one of the reasons they've apparently delayed things right up until midnight on new year's eve is the fact that nearly 170,000 people did submit paper applications. okay. what that means is somebody filled out an application, a paper. it went and is sitting on
4:05 am
somebody's desk. right now they've got -- apparently they've done a bunch of them, but got a back log of about 50 or 60,000 of those, plus there is 50 or 60,000 that they left something off. so a computer error has come up. so all these people are in paper limbo right now. >> sure. i think many people think of what's being sold here, which is an insurance plan, it's a product. if you were to look at a company and think, how are they managing their money? they spent millions of dollars on their web site which doesn't seem to work well, nor does it work on time. they seem to miss deadlines. then they seem to blur the lines again. now they're throwing money into states where the outcome is not what they expected. the money management here alone in terms of what a private enterprise company would do would be something that would for the most part, many americans would put the brakes on and think i may not be interested in that. >> anyone at home who ever paid insurance, auto, health, knows you don't get the insurance until you actually pay for it.
4:06 am
so now they're saying, well, you can pay late. you can pay partially. this is all because it's really so fouled up at this point. >> the partial part kind of had me. they said you could pay a portion of your first month. >> yes. >> that's going to be just an accounting nightmare. >> that's not a requirement. they're asking the insurance companies to accept that because of the screwup. >> they're tossed in the mix here and in the tumble. they may be missing deadlines, but heather nauert is always on time. >> that's interesting, treating private companies like a charity, right? that's what it amounts to. >> that we're all paying for eventually. >> somehow. good morning to you. hope you're off to a great day. the story we're following was developing overnight. another nfl game ends in violence. four people were stabbed outside mile high stadium in denver and one of them is in critical condition at this hour. this happened a half hour after the chargers-broncos game ended last night. a fight breaking out on a
4:07 am
privately owned parking lot. right now three suspects are in custody. earlier this month, you may recall a fan died after a fight at arrowhead stadium in missouri. we'll keep watching this story for you. new video out of utah is heart breaking. a massive rock slide leaving two people dead this morning. they were killed when giant boulders came crashing counsel on their home -- down on their home in utah. this happened on the main high. a few years ago a rock slide in the same town destroyed another home. no one was killed in that incident. startling new information about the american who vanished in iran more than six years ago. he apparently was on an unauthorized mission that was set up by rogue operatives within the c.i.a. retired f.b.i. agent robert levinson remains missing. he traveled to iran at the request of a group of c.i.a. operatives who had no authority to send him there. u.s. government has long insisted that levinson was just

4:09 am
it involves a 16-year-old kid down in texas. he was driving drunk. he hit a bunch of pedestrians, killed some people. but his defense has got people going, are you kidding me? >> the defense is called affluenza. meaning he grew up too rich. and the defense team brought in an expert psychologist to make this testimony. he said it's a psychological malaise that affects young people who may come from families with money. they feel guilt or sense of isolation and based on that, the court in that particular case, instead of perhaps sentencing him to 20 years in jail, sentenced him to ten years of probation. he confessed to intoxication manslaughter and now -- this
4:10 am
sides have rested and closing arts have been made and as the judge sits there and she's beginning her deliberation and she didn't leave the bench. as soon as they rested, there were minutes of silence as she sat there and deliberated. as she began some of her opening remarks, she made several comments that no matter what her verdict was, that in essence, nothing would ever bring the victims back. of course, we knew that. >> it seems as though she was trying to save the life of this
4:11 am
individual whose actions took the lives of four. was it precedent set before this and what precedent does this set going forward? >> in our country, justice is always tempered by mercy. people take into account various factors and mitigating factors. but this notion that someone, because they're poor, because they're wealthy, because of their economic station in life, that it somehow excuses or mitigates a crime this heinous, that's really disturb to go a lot of people -- disturbing to a lot of people in this country, that money becomes an issue and then money becomes the basis of some psychiatric disorder that somehow causes people to do something, that somehow because he had a lot of toys under the christmas tree his entire life, he drank too much and killed these people on that day. it's silly. i mean, it's why people get mad at junk science. it's why people get mad at courts. it's why people get mad at our
4:12 am
system sometimes 'cause they say, how can this be? is this justice? we understand mercy. we understand redemption and forgiveness. but before donald rumsfeld and forgive -- redemption and forgiveness there needs to be justice. >> well said. >> that kid playing the victim card. i'm a victim of having it lucky in life. >> a lot of parents are off the hook as well. >> e-mail us. what do you think of this, affluenza defense. i'm still frozen from being outside. >> very cold. up next, they actually passed a bipartisan bill. but there is something you don't know about the house's new budget. how it could cost our troops. >> good morning, captain. the folks at msnbc not the only ones cutting ed schultz a check to fight for our organized labor. he's also getting paid by the unions he touts on tv. don't worry, ed says he can

4:17 am
>> it can be. >> why? >> because washington has been so unwilling to reform the way it spends money, they look for easy places. safety valves. one of those in this deal was retirement. retirement for folks who are under the age of 62 who served a full 20 years in the military. they are now asked to take 1% less in retirement benefits over the course. that could equal $83,000 in total for an enlisted service member who served 20 years. this is somehow how we're going to balance the books on the backs of military retirees. >> i'm looking at these numbers and seeing, that's a huge deal for a veteran and their families. okay? but i'm not seeing how that can sort of crack into the issue that is our deficit. >> it doesn't fix our long-term debt trend lines. this deal did nothing about entitlement reform, mandatory spending reform, which are the big drivers of our debt and deficit. instead you're tweaking on the margins of military retirement. you know what's more damning? is that we're breaking the trust. we've made an ironclad promise to those who put their lives on the line. if do you that, we're going to
4:18 am
provide for you in the future. and the president made a statement about this deal. he said we can't break our trust with our seniors. he was implying entitlement reform. my goodness, yes, we shouldn't. but what about the promise we made to veterans and those who serve? it was foolish to think this is the way we can balance our books. it's not a long-term solution and it's certainly a temporary break in trust with those who serve. >> why can't there be protective language protect our rights each and every day and come home and this is the most unsafe place for them to be for their future? >> they get nothing but uncertainty. so the economy gets certainties for two years. that was one of the good things about this deal. the defense spending and sequester goes back to dod and that's good. it gives them a buffer. but the uncertainty this provides the military families who will see their pay increase decrease over the future because, again, washington cannot get out of its own way and address the big debt and deficit problems. veterans know that's a national security threat, too. so you're going to rob from

it sounds like more trouble with obamacare. yesterday kathleen sebelius had a conference call and announced first the deadline was going to be december 15th. we moved it to december 23rd. now the deadline, you can pay up until midnight on new year's eve and then get covered the next day. obviously things aren't working well. they're not getting enough people signed up and they're trying to extends it. >> first, let me pitch what i call geraldo's law. under geraldo's law, there should be a one-day delay in the implementation of the individual mandate for obamacare for every day it's not up and running professionally. it was supposed to be up october 1. it's now december 13th. so that is already 74 days it should be delayed from its previous scheduled implementation date of january 1. so now you're deep into march. they must be reasonable. this is impossible to delay up until the 31st.
5:06 am
how, for instance, if i submit a policy, even if it includes everything at 11:00 p.m. new year's eve, how in the world can an insurance company then give me a policy for midnight on? generally speaking, they have to be in receipt of your first premium before policies become in effect and this is really bizarre. >> use pay pal. >> this it not confronting the reality which is that there must be a substantial delay in the implementation of the individual mandate and to do otherwise is unfair to the insurance company and inevitably leave gaps. there will be people who fall through the cracks, whose policies expire when the clock strikes 12 on the 31st of december and not be covered until sometime after that. what happens if they get hit by a car? what happens if they have a catastrophic illness in the meantime? who is going to pick up that tab? i think what they should be doing instead of trying these artificial pushing it to the

last second, they should stop right now and say let's be reasonable. let's be prudent. let's be normal business people and figure out a system that is fair. >> if they listened to the senate, we could have had this. >> there you go. and furthermore, kanye west issue... . >> what's the lie of the year? >> hold on. this should be a good hint. watch. >> first of all, if you've got health insurance, you like your doctor, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor. you can keep your plan. nobody is talking about taking that away from you. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. if you like your health care plan, you can keep that, too. if you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance. period. end of story. >> without question, this may be why it is -- >> i may get in trouble for remembering this.

5:09 am
analogy, i can't believe that -- >> do you want to go back to that again? >> i can't believe that he believed it because the believing it is such a stretch. it's not like it's a close call. it was as we were discussing, delaying the implementation of the mandate. >> it was not only the lie of the year. then the past four years continuing. >> we'll stick to the parameters of the question you asked, what's the lie of the year. >> yes, your honor. >> luckily we have two attorneys here. >> don't you get a headache? >> we got you both on retainer here. talk about this affluenza defense. >> this teen-ager that was charged with manslaughter in the death of four people now he's just going to get probation instead of ten, 20 years in jail. and he skipped jail because of something called affluenza.

he was too rich to understand the consequences of what he was doing. >> this was a judge without a jury and the judge was contemplating this case. how could we bring justice to these people. four are dead already. you're not going to bring back these people. this is a young man who never was responsible for anything in his life. therefore, the judge said, basically, you're too affluent and it's like the flu, you get a pass. orgeat suspended sentence -- you get a suspended sentence. this is preposterous. if wealth can insulate you from responsibility for a crime, why not poverty? the law in its ma jettic equality prevents the rich and poor from sleeping under bridges. income doesn't matter when it comes to your time. poor people don't get a pass when it comes to robbery because they don't have money. >> you're on fire!
