6:00 am
>> it is saturday, march 24th, and in 2008 obamacare was more important than getting millions of americans back to work. remember how excited vice president biden was? why did the white house essentially ignore this week's two year anniversary? >>dave: wild weather sweeping across the country as tornadoes touch done in the heartland. where we will show you where. >>clayton: the government now is cutting the cash needed to train pilots to pack heat in the cockpit. is this the right move? we report. you decide. "fox & friends" begins right now. >> it's "fox & friends."
6:01 am
>>clayton: welcome to "fox & friends" on saturday morning. kids, look who is here, nicole. >> thank you for having me. >>clayton: you occasionally come in on the weekends and grace us with your business for fox business network. >> business is my specialty but i am changing chairs at the dining room table and we are a family and i just moved the share over. i have to say something right off the bat, here is how you know i'm filling in. their computers are set up, i have done plenty of prep work and got here at 2:00 a.m., and my computer has nothing on it. it's off. >>clayton: and you mention the dining room table, but there is in food here also, a shock for you. >>dave: we are here and happy to have you and we start with the anniversary. is it a happy anniversary of obamacare? not necessarily but in two years
6:02 am
since the affordable care act was passed and you don't hear a lot about this from the obama administration. not exactly throwing a happy anniversary party, are they? >>clayton: yesterday in the rose garden having a discussion there and the president did not mention it. it was the g.o.p. candidates hitting the president on this on the trail. >> the second anniversary of obamacare and i don't think anyone is celebrating even if the white house today. because they have seen the polls. the american people don't like obamacare. the more we see of obamacare the less we like it. >> more and more members don't like obamacare so they are taking it to the court. >>clayton: a poll showed support for obamacare slipping again around 50 percent of americans think it is the right move so if you are on the campaign trail and you are president obama do you want to tout this? >>dave: you would think they
6:03 am
would find at least their positive spin. we will show you an intriguing new t shirt the obama administration is selling later not program but this is how nancy pelosi says "a good thing for americans back to the founding fathers." listen to the former speaker. >> what our founders put forth in our founding documents which is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. and that is exactly what the affordable care act helps to guarantee. >> how does she know what the founders wanted. i hear she is an official founders, she gets it wrong every time with the founding fathers. >>clayton: the idea the founders wanted government more involved in our likes is the argument, and that is what obamacare does puts health care on those who may not want it, to an individual mandate and on
6:04 am
monday at the supreme court hearing we will hear whether you will be forced to purchase health care. is that what the founding fathers would want? >>dave: that is what they will take up on monday. does this, is it constitutionally permissible, 26 states say it is not. and, will they take out, overrule that mandate? that should be interesting when it starts on monday. it was supposed to, the heart of it, supposed to cut premiums and make health care more affordable for americans however, so far, that is not the case. we have not seen all of it kick in, obviously, it is around 2014 but they said your premiums would go down by $2,000 per year by the end of the president's first term. >> and, also, did you see how many companies are saying they will detroit altogether. they will drop health care for folks in 2014 when it is in full force because it costs too much.
6:05 am
>>clayton: or they are asking for waivers. if you look at the premiums and the amount they are raised, the way this is going is not go, $2,500, the average family premium has increased by $2.2 thousand and the deficit, another big issue the obama administration was talking about the affordable health care act would cut the deficit and now we know this is what they were hanging their hat on back then in 2010 it would cut it $143 billion in 10 years but it actually increases it because of accounting gimmicks. >> when we talk about the $2,000, that is how people save. in a year. so everyone is cutting --. >>clayton: the average family. >> high gasoline prices and health care are cutting into
6:06 am
savings and that is causing a problem making your way through a rough economy. >>dave: what we know is the health insurers are trying to prepare for the changes under obamacare. here is how it has impacted some of them so far. still, again, everything is not taken into account. the second largest health insurer with 34 million members will spend $100 million 24 year on technology upgrades to meet the law's requirement but the question is, will they pass on the extra expenditures to you in the follows of higher premiums? >> well they pass on the $50 million this year to upgrade the software on the computers to handle the upgrades. and blue blue -- blue cross-blue
6:07 am
shield having to add 100 employees and spend $20 million and that is what we are looking at for the health insurance. a lot of folks say it is not fair or right and moving money out of care for the elderly to aid for the poor. there is so much that goes, all the companies that have to pay for which and year after year it is building. so, unless something is changed in a couple of years ... >>dave: when the obama administration taxes about it they will talk how young people can stay under their parents' insurance and you could expect that to be the campaign push. let us know how you feel about obamacare and how it is affecting you, your live, and your savings. >> no celebration over two years since obamacare. your headlines: more protests popping up nationwide as
6:08 am
thousands call for action in the trayvon martin case. from chicago to philadelphia, demonstrators marched in honor of the florida teen who was gunned down by a neighborhood watch volunteer. a lawyer advising george zimmerman says the incident has nothing to do with race. >> the issue of whether this is between a caucasian and african-american has been brought to light and i don't see george as being that. >> a grand jury is set to convene in the case and decide whether zimmerman will face charges. he is in hiding after receiving several death threats. go figure. >> a manhunt underway right now for a gunman that opened fire on a tire shop in north carolina. two people died and there are reports of at least two others injured. the shop is a family-owned business reportedly a cousin of
6:09 am
the owner is believed one of the fatalities and the man fled from the scene if a silver sedan. a motive is not known. >> rick santorum looking to get a rebound in louisiana in the republican primary. he is expected to do well days after the loss to romney in illinois but romney is outpacing him in the race for delegates with 20 up for grabs today and a candidate needs 1,044 to win the nomination and romney has 563. santorum has 263. newt gingrich has 135 and ron paul has 50. another issue is the volt. general motors will replace 9,500 charging cables on 2011 and 2012 volts after the claim that the core could melt.
6:10 am
it happened in a few cases with the 120 volt charger not meant to be the primary charging cord. most owners have a 240 vote station install asked drivers will be notified the next few weeks. government motors? we are supposed to get it right with the volt. >>clayton: and now rick in the weather center. rick: it is early for spring. like the week? >>clayton: beautiful. i hear rumors that it will be cooler. again. >> i didn't get to the beach, risk, it was gorgeous. rick: what is weird is how long it lasted. even at nighttime. it is about to change. but not that bad. storms and shower around the northeast to the southeast today. we still are mild across the plains. not as mild not temperatures in
6:11 am
the 90's like this week or well above average, and across california, another big storm moving in, more rain, and more snow. here are the temperatures, still another nice day across parts of the far northern plains and 54 in minneapolis well above average. this is the same storm that brought the snow to arizona last week, a week later and we still have the same storm. rain and thunderstorms will be with us all day long and, again, tomorrow, because it is a slow mover and the next storm ready to hit northern california today and tonight and by tomorrow into southern california and that storm is not a snow maker again for arizona like the last one. today we have a threat for severe weather. from illinois, this is jackson county, illinois, a funnel cloud looks like a twitter is touching the ground in jefferson county, illinois, a neighboring county,

>> the obama administration is facing criticism over rising gasoline prices and the list of failed green projects and during a congressional hearing energy secretary chu offered a positive assessment you give yourself "a-" in weatherization. and in controlling the cost of gasoline at pump do you give yourself an "a-". >> the tools we had are limited but i would say i would give myself a little higher. >>dave: and billions of taxpayer dollars have been spent on green energy plant that is falling short. and now pennsylvania
6:17 am
congressman. good morning, congressman. >>guest: good morning, guys. >>dave: how would you grade the secretary? >>guest: well, that happens, you let students grid -- grade their own papers that is what happens. she probably a marvelous scientist and probably would be more comfortable with the petri stuff than the gas pump. "a-" with gasoline from $1.80 to $3.95 for me last night? that is a failing grade not only for the secretary of energy but for the president of the united states. >>dave: congressman when you see the price of gas it is now $3.89 on average the highest ever, is it that simple to blame the energy secretary or the obama administration for the high price? what have they done to lead to that? >>guest: well, the president
6:18 am
ran on the ability to change the future of the country, and he had the answers to our energy problem. i listened to the state of the union address and he talked of all of the above and left out all of the below. he left out coal, a sly -- supply and demand market. to say that is not my fault, not my fault, this happened before, no, no, no, the chief executive has the responsibility to lay out the energy strategy which was to go away from nuclear and fossils and stick with renewables and it has been a failure for taxpayers. >>nicole: that has been the pet peeve of americans we have seen the administration spending on green energy rather than focusing on our own gasoline prices and from what i have heard and read they were all right with the fact that grip prices were -- gasoline prices
6:19 am
were going up? >> absolutely, under the first administration, if they got up to $4 a gallon i would hate to see what will happen. guys in a country that so blessed with natural resources, coal, oil, gas, we do not need to rely on everyone to dictate the price of our markets. coal, and i go back to coal more than anything else is responsible for half of the energy production and electricity in our country. why are we not concentrating on what we have? do the offshore, on shore, open up the east coast, the pacific coast, the atlantic coast, alaska, in the east coast, the gulf, we have abundant supply of natural resources this administration has said "no, off limits, we will stick to grown agenda." the president has become a venture capitalist that invested billions in his own agenda and

>> rallies held across the country to protest the shooting death of unarmed florida teen martin, a grand jury will look into the matter but the neighborhood watch captain who says he acted in self-defense has not been charged. now florida "stand your ground" law is under closer scrutiny. former florida governor weighing in on this and zimmerman's attorney saying the law does not apply in this case. and former washington, dc, homicide detective is join us and florida-based criminal defense attorney. welcome, both. >>clayton: eric, the "stand your ground" law is it enough to protect the guy? you heard yesterday florida governor bush coming out and say this law doesn't apply. what do you say? >>guest: lincoln said that the
6:25 am
only way to repeal a bad law is to strictly enforce it. take it further. the only way to repeal a good law is to use a bad case to use this law. florida stand your ground law has been a great law, a law that allows them to defend them sexes and we have constitutional right to defend ourselves it does not give us a license to hunt down someone who is wearing a hoodie if someone believes they are going to have serious body harm or be killed they can assert this ground and they have in duty to retreat, the doctrine that a man or woman's home was your castle, in your home negotiation duty to retreat. now, outside, stand your ground says you have no duty to retreat and you can defend yourself. >>clayton: it doesn't sound that cut and dry. what tour think? >>guest: is not that cut and dry and i kind of agree with the
6:26 am
defense attorney believe it or not because i can understand the spirit of the law. i can understand the spirit of the law. however, in this case the law does not apply. zimmerman's attorney, i'm glad to hear this morning that he is saying that this law does not apply because he knows as everyone else knows, the reason why they have had the rallies all across the country, that those elements did not exist in this case. can you not get in your car with a gun and drive around and say you will look to someone to have a confrontation to utilize this haw. and then kill that person. >>clayton: you identify this as a particular bad case to use against this law, but drug dealers and gangbangers all getting off from homicide charges because of the law. is it working? >>guest: well, i believe as a criminal defense attorney this law is working it has been a boon to criminal defense attorneys. no one has a more sacred obligation than law enforcement to obey and to follow the laws
6:27 am
the question in this case, should the law be used in this case. people have a right to defend themselves. you need to not have to wait for the police to show up and come. if you believe you are in danger and you will be killed you should have a right to defense yourself. do you not have a right to hunt someone down and to follow someone. george zimmerman no matter what the lawyer says at this point in time because it is tooley to tell we don't have a rush to judgment but a stampede. if he believes he was going to be harmed and going to be killed, i am not saying that applies only two people know what happened. one is unfortunately, sad and tragic, is dead. and one from the get go is claiming self-defense. >>clayton: and the final word? >>guest: there are more than two people that know what happened. we have a number of witnesses, a number of 911 calls, individuals that have not been interviewed
6:28 am
yet, and i am glad to see that the justice department and the f.b.i. are now involved in the case and hopefully we will get to justice. >>clayton: we appreciate you getting up early with this controversy. coming up on the show, are other skies less safe? the government has plans to cut back on firearm training for pilots. is that the right move?

6:42 am
train and arm pilots during each flight. the obama administration wants to cuts out that program and save about $45 million a year not even a drop in the bucket. >>nicole: and now a quote from janet napolitano, the reduction for the federal flight deck officers program is predicated that the program is not risk based. we are moving in the t.s.a. to risk-based systems. the idea is that the pilot is the last line of defense. i was a goalkeeper in college and you are all about the team and everyone getting it right but not end, who is there? the pilot is. >> that is the beg question, now they say we will beef up more security so before you go through and you get on the plane well make sure but last week we had another issue with a kid in a wheelchair being padded down and checked out. so put your faith in that process. >> i would like to have my faith

6:48 am
it was all self serving. >>nicole: you feel he was leaking to woodward and doing it over 18 months, in order to get that f.b.i. top spot which he did not get, what were some of your greatest findings in doing this book? >>guest: there were three finding. first, the motive. he was self serving completely. second, he was leaking to time magazine as much as he ever leaked to the "washington post" and more important stories, and third, he leaked a lot or he disseminated a lot of bad information to woodward and time magazine. >>clayton: on time magazine issue why did they not go forward with the information? or did they? was there more information or more important information leaked to time magazine they never reported we may never have learned? >>guest: no, they have never gotten the credit because they were weekly and the "washington post" came out each day.
6:49 am
so time magazine never got the same credit as the "washington post" did. >>nicole: what do you feel, still feel are unanswered? do you feel like this was question you are sitting with still? >>guest: the biggest question is, nixon found out felt was leaking before the november election. and i am not sure how that happened i wish some of the people were still around to answer questions. >>clayton: a larger theme is the idea of self preservation, nixon wanted to preserve the presidency and mark felt was leaking. >>guest: he worked at the bureau since the 40's and he thought what was good for the bureau was good for mark felt. >>clayton: the book is "leaked," fascinating stuff about a dark period in american history. thank you, max.

michelle. what on earth was the reason. the school said this was a "good project." only do opposition research on the g.o.p. candidates, nothing in regard to the democrats. why? >>guest: exactly. they wanted to teach about the legal process and they had them dig up dirt on the republicans, write a strategy paper and try to figure out how to send that information over to the obama campaign, so, like you said, our public school students are being treated as political operatives now. >>nicole: that is unbelievable and feels unfair and unbalanced when you hear it. the school district spokesman said this. the principal advised the teacher to emphasize that the assignment was meant to "learn a process." what do you think that? is that straight up? >>guest: well, obviously, this assignment is bias but if you put the bias aside, this is a strange assignment.
6:55 am
why teach students of the dirty side of politics, there is so much to learn about the election process and the political ross why teach the bad side? and encourage that behavior? >>dave: encouraging it on either side, these are middle school students, they, it is not helpful for them to learn of opposition research. maybe in college, a graduate type course, has there been discipline with the teacher? >>guest: they okay and now the students have the option to dig up dirt on the obama administration mission. imagine if liberals found out private school students were encouraged to dig up dirt for romney on the obama administration? they wrote be outraged but liberals it is aside while we teach our students to dig up dirt on the g.o.p. >>nicole: and concerned parents did not like this assignment, as all. >>guest: not at all, and the individual we specific to said tons of parents were calling the
6:56 am
school but there is not going to be any punnerment for the teacher whatever. >>dave: unbelievable. thank you, michelle. and obama administration letting officials keep longer tabs on americans with no known ties to terrorism ♪ ♪

7:02 am
done with the white house. another problem, another bit of a recall, for the volt. they have already halted production for five-week period because at the love the dealers said they had five months of stock already and they did not exactly need it. >>nicole: they had a medicalling -- melting plug in fire. and the battery was a problem. it has not gone that well. >>clayton: the new cords, that is the story of the morning, you plug them in and you have a recall and there is a possible problem. this is what the whole thing has cost: $49.5 billion to g.m. from the taxpayers, you get a $7,500 tax credit if you buy. and people complain they are so pricey you have to dry the thing for 40 years to get back the machine you are spending upfront
7:03 am

7:04 am
problem. listen to the president yesterday. all right now a company called transcanada has applied toable new pipeline to speed more oil from cushing, oklahoma, to state of the artery fineries in the gulf coast and today i am directing my administration to cut through the red tape and make this project a priority. >>clayton: republicans call this the "pipeline to nowhere," down in cushing, oklahoma, but does not come across the board boarder. >>nicole: they are taking credit for something they did not do. we are not drilling where we are supposed to drill. gasoline prices are rising. >>dave: this portion of the pipeline was already going to be clear. there was no real opposition to it and it is helpful getting to the gulf coast of texas but the
7:05 am
representative said this was underway fast tracking it note making a difference. >>guest: this is nothing more than a con job that oklahoma people do not appreciate, this photo opportunity. i don't believe the american people are going to believe in this con job, either. >> the president needs to take credit for things in the work. knick member and i have another one. how much production we have. so, there has been all this hype by the president, the administration, about how they have increased production but the production that has been increased is only on private land and state land, not on federal land. the federal land actually is down. >>clayton: and rush limbaugh calling out the president forting -- for then getting the pipeline through. >> remember, it was already not works. he cannot stop this and he
7:06 am
didn't have anything to do with approving it. there is no key -- keystone xl pipeline, 9 leg in the united states is still in limbo he has not authorized it. and now it is blame this on congress they wanted it done in a certain amount of time. >>clayton: and democrats slammed the president on the we will keep you posted on the latest developments. kowtowing to the environmentalists saying it should have been open and shut deal, something the president could handle, and became a campaign issue when he voted it down. >>dave: we will hear about it in the upcoming g.o.p. race. today primary day in louisiana. some voters already headed to the polls very early joining us, like, is our guest always up early. good morning, at cue beetle.

>>dave: the obama administration under fire from civil liberty group whose say new law enforcement guidelines go too far. the rules allow intelligence officials to retain information gathered on american citizens for longer period of time, much longer even with no criminal background. how far is too far? joining us for a pair and balanced week a former homeland security advisor and author of
7:17 am
"tea party, three principles." and a professor of law. his both, five years you were allowed to keep information on american citizens without a criminal background. is this too long? >>guest: well, no, of course it is not. the reason they are expanding the time period for retention of this information is so nose who are charged with keeping us safe from terrorism can do so effectively. if you can only keep this information for 18 months there is only so were they can do. i would think we can get on board with this because there is zero new information being collected. >>dave: and civil rights advocates are concern about keeping this information this long. we are talking about it was 1810 days and now to go to five years are you concerned? >>guest: the question is how does this affect the counterterrorism effort. in law enforment if you keep
7:18 am
information on someone for five years the information could be stale or wrong. and in addition what part of the investigation, do you get an enhanced look at five years? what is causing concern is the information collection on people who have in ties to terrorism. that is the type of thing we have to look at. this is part a national debate. and who are you looking at? and what is the range in which government can take a look at innocent people who have no connections going forward. >>dave: and the viewers at home wondering if they are keepingness on me for five years with no known ties to terror are you concerned? >>guest: this is the same information the government has been collecting for years, now, and there is no new information being collected and the only difference is they are keeping it for a longer period of time and the reason they are doing that is because anyone who works
7:19 am
in counterterrorism will tell you that sometimes it takes a while to see connections between otherwise seemingly innocent points of data, so, all they are doing here is troying to take the information they already have gotten and use it more effectively. >>dave: is it hypocritical for the bush administration infringing on civil rights? >> the recall the firestorm over the awareness program for data of president bush a result of americans and folks in congress saying, this is too much. you do not have the serious for this type of analysis. and, really, when we give up this type of a privacy and we allow government to come in we have to have a good reason for it. and the thing they keep citing is the case that is the detroit airline bomber, right? they failed to put some of
7:20 am
databases together. is that the only case? the only reason for doing this going from 180 days to five years? you need bed are ideas for that. >>dave: thank you boat for -- both for being with us this morning. and he is best for the "dukes of hazard." ok, guys-- what's next ? chocolate lemonade ? susie's lemonade... the movie.

7:25 am
thank you for the references, appreciate it. >> movie looks unbelievable. >> you do not choose a role blindly so it had to be mere and dear to your heart. >> well, i'm a dad. we have four kids. and it is always fascinating in the scene you just saw a young person says i know how you must feel about, really, anything. so, i appreciated the script because when it all boils down, it and really is a movie about the burden of hatred and the power of forgiveness and i am talking about basically if i am holding someone against someone, if i have a hatred toward you, however justified, someone said that hatred is like continually drinking poison waiting for someone else to die.
7:26 am
for me that is what this film is about and there were a lot of those sorts of message. is i am excited about the policemen. and it is a little movie that is making a lot of noise. number three on "must see," list behind "21 jump street." >>nicole: about a 19-year-old that was supposed to be aborted and live and her challenges and anger through life. how do you hope that families, a lot of people will watch this, highway do you hope the viewers take this in? what do you think as a viewer what do you think i will think? >>guest: well, i hope it causes conversation. really. because it challenges what you believe. i never heard the term "abortion survivor," before i read "october baby." the script. and i saw the movie last night and i listened to people talking
7:27 am
and there are a lot of people talking about adoption. a lot of people saying i didn't know there was such thing as abortion survivor and hopefully it will begin conversations in families on the way home, not political views, but, just, open, honest conversations, about life. and about the, especially for me, about whether you are holding a grudge. teens hold a lot of things against their parents. they do. and you know it will pass. but, they don't. and that is also one of the points of the movie. i am excited about "october baby." >>clayton: and you mention the similar things in smallville, and very wholesome show and as a have nerd a fan of superman now the show has ended, john, what does it feel like to be tied to this character, superman, there is a new superman movie in
7:28 am
production what do you think about it? >>guest: i'm so honored especially to have been, i'm the guy that handed clark kent the suit. and he puts it on. i love smallville and it is hard to be a father. a book doesn't come with the children when they are born as you enjoy. but, i have so enjoyed being that kind of a father on "smallville," and now this kind a father in "october baby," because it, it's stories leak that, like smallville obviously helpful to people hike me who are fathers and "october baby," is the same thing. >>nicole: we are glad you did this project and you yourself married 18 years, you have four kids and this "october baby," is out this weekend is everyone can catch that. >>clayton: great to see you.

7:40 am
this. >> thank you, everyone. >> remember that? >> i didn't forget it. >>dave: and from everything we were told the president was not happy that vice president biden said that in an open mike and maybe they were proud of it because they now are owning that slogan. the president himself on his own twitter accounts putting out the word selling a t shirt "health reform still a bfd." $30 great obama for america, their official campaign is fundraising off of joe biden's open mike slip. i think parents are not thrilled with the idea of their kids walking away with that t-shirt. >>nicole: i am not a fan. not a fan. >>clayton: i thought maybe it was a super pac, an unaffiliated

families. if you have an open bounty to hurt another player, you are actually actively trying to take food out of that family's mouth. i understand injuries will happen in a sport but when you try to take someone out, there are implications in there. >>dave: do you think they are the only team doing it? >>guest: there are gives doing additional things to hurt me. but, when a coach advocates that, it is crossing the line. >>dave: and now undrafted from the nfl you are now the best runningback by a lot of counts in the nfl, averaging 1,400 yards and 15 touchdowns in the last two seasons an impressive stat and you get a new five year deal and the sports news names you the most interesting man in

living in squalor and drought and tough times trying to make it through. right? >>guest: yes, they are living in a country a post modern united states where they literally have to fight and scrounge for food on a daily basis and they are a society at war for food. so in order to eat it is almost lucky to participate in the games where they have to murder each other because if you win the became, if you are the last one standing, you will have a life with a house and food. otherwise, you will not live that way. >>nicole: how does this relate to big government? the folks that did not participate in this do not get anything, right? how does this relate to big government? how do you think? >>guest: well, interesting, no one ever reads the same book and it would be great to ask the author what she meant by this but if you look at countries where the people living in them
7:56 am
are stabbing those are countries oppressed by too government. they cannot produce and be product ever and get food in return for their work. this does not occur in capitalists society but those overrun by government and they are at war essentially with each other and if you look at when you are not allowed to exchange what you work for, for that of others history says people go to work and that is essentially what it is, individuals fighting each other for survival so they can eat. >>nicole: thank you, john, this is unbelievable. take it over. it is unbelievable. thank you for joining us. on a walk, walk, walk. love to walk. a long walk. a walk with you.

>> good morning, on saturday, march 24th. two years ago a big deal, this
8:00 am
year? a not so happy birthday for the president's health care bill. >> this is the second and was of obamacare. i don't think anyone is celebrating in the white house today. >>nicole: where are the big parties? >>dave: jon corzine caught lying unoath to congress through e-mails saying the further new jersey governor and mf global c.e.o. may have misplaced customer cash. on purpose. what it means and why he could be in a whole lot of trouble. >>clayton: the government cutting the cash and disarming our pilots. is this a good idea? or plain fooler? "fox & friends" hour three starts right now.
8:01 am
>> this is dolly parton and you are watching "fox & friends" this morning. >>dave: dollywood is open. >>clayton: great to see you, nicole. >>nicole: it has been a fun morning. i am not yet on twitter. got to do that. >>clayton: i saw these in the green room. do you know what is going on this week? better know these guys. all eyes on robert, kennedy, alito. >>nicole: we have to watch kennedy. >>clayton: monday it starts, folks, keep those around the case just in case, and sunday all eyes on this because of the big supreme court hearing for obamacare the affordsable health care act is underway on monday and the candidates have a lot to say. >>dave: the mandate is at the
8:02 am
part of this? is it constitutional? 26 states say it is not. it will likely be a 5-4 split. >>clayton: the candidates are on the campaign trail on the two year anniversary of obamacare, and romney care is considered the basis for obamacare and he said the more we see the more we don't like. >> the second anniversary of obamacare, i don't think anyone is celebrating even in the white house today. because they have seen the polls. the american people don't like obamacare. the more we see of obamacare the less we like it. >> interesting how he talks about that and it will affect businesses and americans. here is mcconnell. >> two years have gone by. and this is what we know: the president was right to join a call for health carry reform. but the giant bill he and others
8:03 am
ran through congress made it worst. >>clayton: and david axelrod former campaign leader for president obama sent out an e-mail. on behalf of obamacare for america. saying this. i like obamacare. i'm proud of it. and you should be. here is why: it works. custody stand with me in saying hell, yeah, i'm for obamacare. and the college kids come back whom on their parents' health care and talks about cutting costs, and he talked about that inside the e-mail. >>nicole: that is arguable. >>dave: and the kids under 26. the president will try to rally the youth. did it work? and here are some things that have happened. a promises, a core promises in the president is that premiums
8:04 am
would come down and that is a big problem in this country. they have come down over $2,000 by the end the first term for the average family. what has happened, since the affordable health care act, average premiums have increased by more than $2,000 so completely in the opposite direction is the fowl promise. >>nicole: people are losing choices. they going to lose their choices. we talked of the companies by the year 2014, many of them may choose not to give health care at all. and that is a problem, as well. >>clayton: and the deficit is a big issue, a projection by the c.b.o. in 2010 that the health care plan would reduce the deficit by $143 billion and the white house saying, that is curting the deficit. in 2011 the obama administration does away with the class act because it is fiscally unworkable which was a portion of one of the accounting gimmicks as the right called it,
8:05 am
and in the numbers, there were projections and weird accounting gamics accounting for the lowering. >>nicole: they give us something and revise it. we were presented with one thing and they revise it. and now the true costs of obamacare, wiping out $70 billion of projected $143 billion of deficit reduction. >>dave: much of obamacare is unknown because a lot of things are not fully in place. companies are trying to prepare for it whether you are a small business or insurer. here is what the insurance companies are saying they have done. the second largest in the country will spend $100 million on technology upgrades to meet the law's requirement. >>clayton: and it that, with 189 million members will spend $50 million to upgrade software in the computers. >>nicole: and blue cross-blue shield of michigan with four
8:06 am
million members spending nearly $20 million and adding 100 employees. and also, money to care for the elderly aid for the poor. >>clayton: it starts on monday morning at the supreme court. the white house will say a portion of this you need to wait for and they will use the legal idea which is, look, we cannot rule on this because it has not gone into effect. that is an argument. >>dave: three days of oral arguments scheduled in the supreme court. today it is primary day in louisiana and the polls are open as republican voters are ready to pick their favorite candidates. james is on it and in washington this morning, is that right?
8:07 am
>>guest: rick santorum will likely win the share of the 20 deaths being awarded in louisiana primary and romney will pick up some of them and end the weekend with the commanding lead in the count instant. the two candidates stumped across the state yesterday, and santorum emphasizing his social conservatism, and blue-collar roots and romney making the case for business experience, and both took aim, however, at president obama and his signature health care law. >> americans do not want what they or their ancestors left. that is why it is important. in this race. on the issue of government control of your likes and being dependent on government for your very health. >> people have taken a good hard look at obamacare and seen the additional taxes and seen a $500
8:08 am
billion cut to medicare, and i cannot skip that one were we have to talk about that. because i go to symposium and them say "don't touch my medicare," and only one president cut $500 billion out of medicare and that is your guy, and? i am president i will reserve medicare and i will not cut $500 billion out of the medicare that we have. >> newt gingrich is polling at 18 percent in the state this month and ron paul is in single digits so, trouncing by rick santorum, a former senator from pennsylvania in the last of the deep south states to vote in the cycle could accelerate calls for newt gingrich who staked his candidacy on the south to drop out. back to you.

two people died and there are reports of at least two others injuried. the shop is a family-owned business reportedly a cousin of the owners is believed to have been one of the fatalities. cops say the man fled from the seen in a silver sedan and the motive is unknown. here you go, new details in mf global's collapse showing former c.e.o. jon corzine may have been lying to congress. according to ena male from the former assistant treasurer he ordered $200 million be transferred from a customer account before the company tanked. the money was allegedly moved to the company's accounts that were overseas. if that is true, that would con thing with corzine's statements that he never directed anyone to misuse the customer funds. and mf global filed for bankruptcy in october after a bad bed on europe debt. those are your headlines. we are going to hear a lot more
8:11 am
about this. rick is it short leaved weather or not? rick: this is the in between. it was short sleeve weather at night but now not short sleeve weather going back to sweat are and light jacket weather but across the plains it is not the case. and last week we talked about temperatures in the 80's, and pushing lower 90's for some people and today and tomorrow we still are well above the average across the central lanes and toward the mid-atlantic but not as warm as last week so it will feel very nice and we cannot complain with this, there is warnings in los angeles, and there will be snow dropping to around 5,000 feet.

8:17 am
not telling the truth. >> even if we drill every square inch we will rely on other companies for oil. >>nicole: what is the president's policy on drilling? is he doing enough? >>dave: we have the c.e.o. of an energy company, and he wrote an open letter to the president. john, good to see you. >>guest: good morning, you cannot drill your way to lower gas prices. is he wrong, i think, we have new technologies including fracturing which you know about, and have opened up a new world from an oil accessibilities point of view. we have a lot of oil? we go after it and that will

8:19 am
being oppose bid environmentalist extremists part of his constituency. >>dave: and, john, this letter you and your colleagues wrote to the president and we have a portion of that saying no energy source is good for men than domestic oil and gas and our companies are creating well paying jobs. we hope your actions follow suit, to date they have not. specifically, sir, you want his actions to be, what? >>guest: well, we want him to support the industry here by doing things that are -- what he is doing is increasing regulation. layers of regulation. and they are not helping to make this industry more environmentally sound. have had no real positive impact, just putting more control in the hands of the federal government which he is doing on all fronts and we need him to quit doing that and to
8:20 am
quit being hostile, and threatening and increasing taxes. and let me point this out. this industry is terribly capital intensive industry. we invest more than 100 percent of our cash flow each year. we take all the cash employee and we borrow money. to take more taxes away means it will have ramifications and we will cut back activities and cut back on jobs and reduce supply and increase prices. it is nonsense. >>dave: thank you, john. >>nicole: we could be hiding two wars, high unemployment and high gasoline prices but my ghost those there is a brighter future ahead. >>dave: safety in the sky going to the birds with the government cutting cash and disarming pilots. is this a good idea? or plain foolish?

8:39 am
above the weight." knick folk he would never anticipate that would be put together the way it was. >>governor huckabee: somebody ought to get a real talking to over this. it was just, really, it is funny. funny. funny. >>dave: it felt lick he was an libbing. >>governor huckabee: maybe the white house is focusing on the re-election campaign with all eyes on the supreme court on monday hitting two year birthday of of obamacare this week. can it be repealed? >>governor huckabee: the interesting thing now, the health carry law is in terrible 2's and it is starting that time. starting to really act up. throw tantrums. and people realize this is a baby that is a real problem child and it will create problems for individuals, for businesses, and for families, and for the country, economically. it can be repealed.

8:41 am
beginning of life, at the point of birth, opportunities for abortion? and at the end-of-life you have people call them death panels but you start evaluating whether a person is going to get treatment based on the likelihood the outcome you make decisions that do exactly opposite of what nancy pelosi says. i believe the founders said something about live. i do not believe this government believes it and they do not practice it. >>nicole: exactly. well, safety and going to the skies is it going to the birds? the government is now cutting curb and disarming our pilots. is this wise? >> and a flashback to the modern age, how you can live like a character straight out of a show from "madmen."

>>dave: the governor is sticking around on "fox & friends" to weigh in. the obama administration wants to remove guns from the cockpit. there is a program that arms pilots as the last line defense. this costs only $15 a flight to allow a gun in the cockpit. what do you think of the decision? >>governor huckabee: i would rather the pilot be armed rather than having people shaken down by the t.s.a. with their hands down our britches. there is something
8:46 am
unconstitutional about treating people as being guilty putting us through a machine and we could be getting a dose of radiation that could prove lethal. >> i had a view are write to make this point, and it is a great point, this is cheaper than having to put air marshals on each flight having the mights have the armed cockpit $15 a not, hiring air marshals is way more expensive. >>governor huckabee: and the pilot, there is no one on the airplane better able to make the tough decisions on protecting the passengers than the pilot. he has the airplane. that is the greatest defense too much and the greatest weapon. put him in charge of the instruments and you have given the greatest legal of trust to the most trustworthy person on the plane and the flight attendants. they are highly trained
8:47 am
professionals who also have been trained how to deal with problems. i think the more we train them the less you have to worry about some of the invasive processes we go through before we get on the plane. >>nicole: the money that goes to the t.s.a. rather than the pilot is not the right decision. >>governor huckabee: it doesn't make any sense and there is a role for the t.s.a. but this ought to be sanity and common sense brought to the process and there is not much of either. >>nicole: and gun sales in america have been surging. >>clayton: the governor brings fair and common sense on the weekend to fox. and coming up the volt going from low voltage to no voltage. was it worth your tax dollars?

9:07 am
>> dave: i'm on board, okay, i like it. more pollen pictures. >> clayton: and going to look out longingly. >> rick: all right. so, anyway, the pollen is bad and atlanta tomorrow. and take a look at the weather map, big storm out west and rain and snow and not dealing with the spring conditions yet and the rain that's flowed through the central plains and into the east has caused some of that the pollen down and in fact, a threat for severe weather across georgia and areas of the mid atlantic. and could be a tornado or two. definitely, we'll see strong winds and maybe a little hail. so, certainly watch out. we've had so much severe weather again this week and getting into the season. temperature-wise, across the plains, again, temps well above average today. around 20 degrees, above your average in the northern plains, tomorrow, that shifts farther to the south and towards parts of the rockies and denver, you're going to be warm. and these are how the temperatures shape up. 73 today in minneapolis, and

9:09 am
and maybe in a story that was overreported a bit. how does it look. gm bailout, 49 1/2 billion dollars and you get a refund and tax break. 7500 every time you buy the volt, but the problem is you're looking around the price tag, even with that, well north of 40,000 for a volt. and i think that's why it's been sluggish with the car and a lot of dealers say five months of volume. >> nicole: not cheap, problematic, it doesn't really sell. and it's a tough sale. >> it seems like the prices, a number of extras on the show and the number of price tags unfortunately, so, let us know what you think about that, about the chevy volt and also this morning, an issue that the white house is having to deal with now, of course, over the keystone pipeline. of course, the controversy there that a lot of folks on the right and democrats, slamming the president saying he kowtowed too much to the environmental left and the fringe of the democratic party and didn't go forward with the keystone pipeline.
9:10 am
>> then he's in oklahoma this week, talking about a portion of the keystone pipeline, one that runs from oklahoma to the gulf coast of texas that he wants to put on the fast track, listen to the president. >> right now, a company called trans canada applied to build a new pipeline, to speed more oil to cushing out on the gulf coast and today i'm instructing my administration to cut through the red tape and through the bureaucratic hurdles to this make this a priority. >> nicole: pretty unbelievable, right? we saw all about this pipeline and not doing that and not giving the permits and not drilling, gasoline prices going up. a lot to handle. >> dave: the knock on keystone the president went out of his way to sink the project when there was clearly bipartisan support for the pipeline and bill and a lot of democrats were on board, but this particular part from oklahoma to texas it was going to happen anyway, no real holdups
9:11 am
and to take credit doesn't wash. >> clayton: disagreements with governors who came on board and the governor of nebraska was on board and rush lame beau calling out t-- rush limbaugh calling out the president for taking credit-- >> what he was already in the works, he can't stop this. and he didn't have anything to do with improving it. >> there is no keystone pipeline. the leg from canada to the united states is still in limbo, he has not authorized it and he won't until after he's elected and now it's blame this on congress, they want it had done within a certain amount of time. it's just all-- >> it's a mess because he's taking credit for something he doesn't have any reason to take credit for. and the same thing we were saying about production, with basically staying that they've increased production during his term and that's not the case and we saw that on state
9:12 am
land, private land, not on private land. production fell there. >> and it's the e-mail address and find it on swtwieter. we're ff weekend. >> and shocking details in the botched fast and furious operation. it turns out the main suspect was actually caught and released by atf officials and border agent brian terry killed by those guns and a friend of his weeking out and calling for eric holder to step down continues. >> nicole: and chat, your favorite d-lister, it's true. you can now dial up your favorite d-list celebrity, but it's going to cost you big time. ♪ ♪ here i am signed sealed deliver, i'm yours ♪ ♪ here i am baby, oh, signed

>> shocking new details this week in the botched fast and furious operations. seven months into the gun running program. federal agents caught their man. the main suspect was 74 rounds, live rounds of ammunition inside his car. and instead of locking him up, they cut a deal to make him an informant. he was let go and was not arrested until months later. >> this news comes as calls grow for attorney general eric holder to step down over the arrange: a close friend of the slain border agent, brian terry and missing weapons from the fast and furious at the scene of terry's murder. good morning to you, thanks for being with us. >> good morning, thanks for
9:17 am
having me. >> what do you make of this news that the main suspect in the case was caught and released? why? >> well, just more negligence and more proof that this was their intended inception of the program was to let guns walk and the documents that eric holder just released, well, said he released another thousand documents when it was really 376 documents. if there's nothing to hide. why wouldn't you just release all 80,000 documents? i think when acosta, you know, this is just the tip of the iceberg. i believe there are worst things than this story and to let him go not once, but twice and for him to leave with a $10 with mccallister's number on it is the tip of the iceberg. >> nicole: you're talking about holder and over 100 representatives are asking for him to actually resign over this because acosta had been pulled over, as you noted more
9:18 am
than once, twice, actually and in that case there were guns and nine cell phones, who travels with nine cell phones and a whole thing of guns. what do you make of that when everybody is saying for holder to step down? >> i don't understand what it's going to take, now, at first he thought, it's just the republicans saying it's a political thing, and this is an american citizen thing that everybody would like him to step down. all you have to do is pick up a paper, go on social media, on a blog, maybe fox should take a poll of the american people to see if the american people lost confidence in eric holder and maybe that will open his eyes. i don't know what it's going to take, but two democrats have now stepped forward saying release the documents. if he doesn't think this is, you know, an issue, he still hasn't accepted any responsibility or accountability. no one has even been fired for any wrongdoing. in his eyes, the doj has done nothing wrong. well, in my eyes the doj has
9:19 am
done nothing right. not only do we have brian terry who was killed, by zapata was killed. and two families that don't have answers for the murders of their siblings and children. >> dave: as you mentioned you're a friend of the former slain border agent, brian terry. >> i can't speak for the family, but i'm sure, as any family would he feel, extremely irate, that a program like this would even be created. the recklessness of the program in allowing guns to walk. it doesn't make any sense. >> nicole: we're waiting for it to work and they're waiting for it to work, hoping he'd become an informant and the whole thing was really botched and lives were lost. thank you so much. >> and. >> nicole: yeah, go ahead. >> thank you. and those were their intentions were to let those guns walk.

9:25 am
out of our american flag and desecrated that's a sad thing. >> clayton: as you know, the judge said desecration was unconstitutional and here is what the law specifically states there in missouri and get you to respond. any person who personally and publicly mutilates, defaces, tramples upon or did hes crates the national flag of the united states or state flag of state of missouri is guilty of the flag desecration, where is the gray area? >> there isn't any gray area, missouri is i think one of the 20 states that still had desecration of the flag on their books. a lot of senators or representatives don't want to sponsor a bill that's going to take it off our books. and hopefully, congress will one day come together and pass
9:26 am
a law or amend the constitution that allows congress to pass a law that says, you can't do that. and stop listening to the 1% and start listening to the 99% of the people. >> kenneth, that judge, in a sense, is saying, i'm trying to protect your free speech by not allowing this flag desecration law. how do you react to that? >> well, i've been in law enforcement for 42 years and that judge really had no other choice. back in 1989, the supreme court said it was unconstitutional to have a flag desecration law because it did interfere with free speech. so, really, she had no choice to do-- but to do that.

9:40 am
shovel with a piece of tape so that i know how wide it's going to be, and it's shorter in one area, and what i've he done is mark that, and uk us a chalk line or this is a yard marking paint like they would mark utilities. >> right. >> so it will disappear a little bit and it will be along the edge of your hose like this, and when you move that, now, you've got a pretty good line of where you want to start digging and next step is to remove the turf. and use a good flat shovel and i want to dig in around two inches along the edge and cutting into the edge and then you can just go through and remove the turf from the top and you're going to get pretty close to that line. it doesn't have to be perfect. >> you can pull it up, if you've got good grass, you can reuse that as other parts of the yard. >> i'm stepping on the stuff that you want to put down next. >> so we've already removed the turf here, the next thing
9:41 am
we want to do is spray, with some weed block or some we had and grass killer, in case anything is starting up inside your path. you don't want that to happen and the first step is to do this and put the landscape fabric down. so you lay that down and i've already put some blocks and you can see we've got that layer down there already. and you put up the blocks around the site next or the material around first. typically put that out first and the blocks were on top. >> and put that out and i would put the fabric down first and for this case, you've laid the blocks in. you can see down here, and there won't be anything growing up between the blocks. >> and keep it nice and taunt and put mulch or whatever you want on there. >> the next thing is to decide how you want to fill this. we decided to use some mulch with this and if you get mulch in different colors and we use
9:42 am

species, one problem, may shut down oil drilling in texas and i have to say when i first saw the story, something smells weird, smells like purely politics to me, am i wrong about this? >> oh, it's completely political. you know, we get about a million barrels a day off the basin out in west texas. this lizard has been living there for centuries, obviously, millennia. if you have he' ever visited west texas, there's so much land and space, essentially you can have all kinds of industries and all kinds of wild life living come patbly with one another, the fact that they have chosen now at the highest prices, that we have paid in our history for gasoline, to shut down or potentially shut down oil expiration and production in west texas is purely
