3:00 am
>> good morning, everyone, it's saturday, september 21st. i'm alisyn camerota. a showdown over a government shut down. president obama pointing the finger at republicans. republicans say the real problem is the healthcare plan that america does not want. >> so much for freedom of speech. >> let him ask his question. >> next question. >> so this. >> don't stand for. this you are sitting here like cowards. you have questions. confront them. >> parents dare to ask question about the common core curriculum and then gets arrested.
3:01 am
what he is saying today about the confrontation that led to his arrest. >> and does this look familiar? >> [inaudible] i won't be able to love you anymore. >> like camerota's children. >> how do your parents power your children. they are taking over your lives. "fox & friends" begins right now. >> hi, this is dolly parton, and you are watching "fox & friends." [rooster crow] >> hey, dolly. >> she is my favorite. you guys, look at the new set. >> welcome it still has that fresh studio smell, doesn't it, the new set smell. >> although hey on camera won can can we show this monitor. this is a little disconcerting i looked up and saw alli's giant head this morning it was on its side. >> that is going to be confusing. >> i don't know if we can take that it's a little weird and a little awkward.
3:02 am
we are still getting used to the new digs over here. >> now you are sort of upside down. i looked over and saw alli's head on its side like this. >> how do you like it? >> i love it it's actually more comfortable and i think that it is stain resistant. [ laughter ] >> let's try it with some hot coffee. >> pillows are good for your back. >> the pillows are helpful. we are really liking it. you are going to see a, thatted improvement in our performance right now. [ buzzer ] >> sit back and just sit here and enjoy. all right. let's talk about the news of the weekend and that is the fight over healthcare, it's set to bring the government to a halt. republicans in the house as you know approved this plan to keep the government but only if they do away with obama care. facing certain death in the stance. >> elizabeth with all the details. >> good morning, like you said, as predicted the house passed a short-term
3:03 am
spending bill that will avert a government shutdown. did t. it did include an amendment to defund the affordable care act. shortly after the news the president sent a number of messages on the hill to intertwined in economic speech to auto workers and their families at a manufacturing plant near kansas city accusing conservative lawmakers of, quote, holding the economy hostage. when he did get back to washington, one aide said did he speak with the speaker. he said the president called the speaker this evening to tell him he wouldn't negotiate with him on the debt limit. given the long history of using the debt limit increases to achieve bipartisan reduction economic reform the speaker was disappointed. so you can see speaker john boehner has a lot on his plate as he passes his bill over to senate majority leader harry reid. reid is expected to strip the provision of defunding obama care from the bill. the next option is going forward could be the fact that republican senators, such as rand paul and ted cruz, among others, need to
3:04 am
filibuster. listen. >> rest assured that i will use any and all procedural means we have in front of us. now it is up to the senate to step forward and do the same thing the house has done. >> the senate showdown begins monday morning. democrats have already said that they do have the the 60 votes needed to strip out the provision and prevent any filibuster, something will certainly will be watching for. alli, tucker and clayton back to you guys. >> elizabeth prann from washington. thank you very much. >> the president taking to a campaign trail yesterday heartland saying this is a personal attack on me. he has to drum up support though right now because is he trying to get the american people on his side. he said this fight san attack on him and it's kind of personal. that's the way he is sort of seeing it. >> nancy pelosi said the same thing in wide ranging interview the other day in which he he said people hate obama irrationally. she is implying people hate the color of his skin. hate him so much they
3:05 am
oppose anything is he for. >> they said the same thing about bill clinton. >> alisyn: the president was at this kansas city assembly plant yesterday talking about what was going on back home on capitol hill. glch right now the debate that's going on in congress is not meeting the test of middle class families. it's just -- they are not focused on you. they are focused on politics. they are focused on trying to mess with me. [ laughter ] they are not focused on. >> you some people have called what congress has done a come any cozy mission. the president would veto it anyway. it's hard to know if they are playing this right by standing on principle. you know, many people think
3:06 am
that obama care should stand on its own because it itself is not possible with the american public. the republicans might not have to have pushed it over the edge this way in the house. polls suggest that americans are already sceptic call about whether or not it will succeed. >> skeptical, that's for sure. >> decoupling it from this resolution to fund the government as many are saying. senator john mccain is saying, look, you don't have have -- the math doesn't add up. you simply can't do it. this is a ridiculous journey. bill o'reilly on the factor bringing up the point this is a fool's errand for republicans. listen. >> this is a serious issue. it's going to be spun by the media and the president and those with the bully pulpits here are the republicans again wanting to throw the whole country off the cliff and wanting to punish you. the low information voters will buy it the independents, many of them will buy it that's my thinking because in the long run it's going to hurt the republican party.
3:07 am
i'm not routing for the republican party, i'm routing for the country. ihappen to aagree with you it's going to hurt the country. the only way to get rid of it is for republicans to regain power. they will not regain power if they are seen as being the party of, quote: disarray, unquote. >> that's a fair point because in fact on a policy level they win the debate. obama care does not help the middle class. you are sigh ago huge spike in part-time work. that doesn't help the middle class at all. companies can't afford to hire people full time. you see company after company dumping employees because of obama care. if this debate were to play out in public i don't think they could win it. >> on the policy issue they win. on the. government shuts down and soldiers have to show up for work without a paycheck. they have to still report for workmen and women in uniform. >> that is not going to happen. republicans should get out of their own way.
3:08 am
>> these 11th hour reprieves for the government we are getting so used to it now. we have 10 days left, 9 days left before the government is supposed to shut down. >> it's a battle relitigated until december 15th. this resolution is only good for december 15th. >> we do this a lot. we are getting good at it let's get to your headlines and tell you what else is happening. new information overnight. pakistani officials release their highest ranking afghan, taliban prisoner. bare i do, the former he was arrested with a joint operation with the cia in 2010. syrian government giving up details of not so secret stockpile of chemical weapons. agreement hammered out by the u.s. and russia by submitting an inventory. the is list very long and must be translated from
3:09 am
arabic. world watchdog is expected to examine list today. under the deal chemical weapons stockpile must be destroyed by next year. infamous hiccup girl found guilty of murder in florida. 22-year-old jennifer mee sobbed as she was sentenced to life in prison for her role in a 2010 murder. she admitted to arranging that meeting that led to the robbery and murder of shannon griffin. alternate juror said that pretty much sealed her fate. --because i said because i set everything up. >> it is incriminating. >> she received nationwide attention several years ago for incureble case of the hiccups. those are your headlines. >> our rick reichmuth is in the studio for a look at the weather. >> for the first time i don't know where to go. >> standing in the middle of the studio. >> that's how i feel, i know. somewhere back behind me. oh, there i get it.
3:10 am
>> we needed rehearsal. >> it's much more fun when we know. guarantee you. very cool temps across the northern plains, overall no majorly cold air anywhere across the u.s. we like to hear that when we are in september. that certainly can start to happen. take a look at this. texas has been dry all summer. dry spell. the drought again has built back up in texas. and over the last 24 to 48 hours big time rainfall. this was a lot of moisture that was part of hurricane manuel that hit the west coast of mexico. that moisture making its way in across texas. you see all that yellow and red there that's anywhere from 2 to 6 inches of rain and a little spot down here across southeastern areas of texas. down towards beaumont and areas around lake charles, louisiana up over 10 inches of rain. that means some flooding. but fortunately things looking pretty good. one big storm that we have got going on across the country today is the same storm that brought all that moisture across texas. cold front moving off. rain showers canada all the way down to the
3:11 am
mid-atlantic. that storm will be on its way through the east. tonight by the coast. tomorrow down across the southeast and parts of far northern new england. how is that? >> well done. figure it out. >> i think they did a good job. >> it fits you well and you it. >> something that doesn't fit well in this country right now might be common core the new education standards which are being floated. you know the controversy surrounding common core among them that certain al qaeda members are having their voices heard in this curriculum. rappers are being used as examples to tout history about pimps inside this education. this is the kind of thing you want your kids. >> not everybody is for it robert small outside of baltimore went to a hearing the other night on the question of common core and had some questions. tried to react and ask questions about what this means for his kids. and here is what happened. watch. >> my question is representation standards community college because
3:12 am
that's what it is all about. >> let him ask his question. >> next question. >> let him ask his question. >> don't stand for. this you are sitting here like cowards. you have questions. confront them. they don't want to you to know what they're talking about. >> he was thrown out. >> by the way the irony here this was a public forum where the public was invited to come in and ask questions. however, the questions had to be submitted via writing. and then the board, i guess of education locally, was going to read the questions that they chose, read the questions and then provide the answers. so, his question was not. >> it was off the script. >> so they wanted to script the whole thing and when he decided not to play along. they threw his arm behind his back and arrested him. >> arrested him and handcuffed him and sat him down on the curb in front of the meeting. so public humiliation. plus he says man handling
3:13 am
as you can seat security guard was sort of being, you know, rather aggressive. >> why didn't other people he says you are sitting here. watch this. do something. that's a good question. why didn't other people stand up and say back off, buddy. get your hands off him. >> let him ask his question. >> we're going to ask him tomorrow. is he going to be on the show. >> this is distressing that people sat and let this happen, i think. >> they are all sitting there thinking that question. why would they be at this public forum on this very issue if they didn't have those concerns? >> let us know if you have questions for him when we talk to him tomorrow. meaning while, coming up the president touted as a model for obama care. now that -- that's the exact reason, well, one of them, that the cleveland clinic says it has to give some workers early retirement and cut their budget. so is obama care really worth it to them? we have bill johnson next with us on this. >> katie perry's new popular song getting the boot. why one nfl team is booth
3:14 am
her from the stadium play list. listen to that song. ♪ oh, oh, oh ♪ oh, oh, oh you're going to hear me roar. ♪ now go in like at butterfly ♪ singingtoer like the be
3:15 am
3:16 am
3:17 am
back in 2009. praised the -- >> part of the thing we want to do is to free doctors, patients, hospitals to make decisions based on what's best for patient care. that's the whole idea behind mayo, that's the whole idea behind the cleveland clinic. >> but now the clinic that he once touted as a model for healthcare is being forced to make some major
3:18 am
budget cuts because, in part of obama care. so joining us now to discuss this is ohio congressman bill johnson. good morning, congressman. >> good morning, alli, how are you? >> i'm doing well. it's hard to know exactly what was behind their cuts of $330 million at the cleveland clinic because frankly president has said different things. i was supposed to interview before fox news interview he said off camera, we are not blaming the white house. the cost cutting is comprehensive. obama care is just one part. >> what do you make of the budget cuts they are having to do i think this is just another example of what is happening all over the country, alli, as the president's broken promises hit hospitals all over the country. the cleveland clinic is is a world renowned hospital. people all over my district in eastern and southeastern ohio depend upon that clinic. my mother and father-in-law
3:19 am
both actually get treatment there you know what often happens is as reimbursements are cut, that's one of the first things that go. reimbursements for medicare are cut in order to pay for this healthcare law. remember, $716 billion came out of medicare in the healthcare law. those cuts mean less reimbursement for healthcare providers and that's hurting access. and so these hospitals are having to make some very, very tough decisions to comply with the over 20,000 pages now of regulations that are actually writing the law as we go along it's a broken promise. >> is it fair to say that even without obama care that there would have had had to have been some belt tightening. we know that costs were spiraling out of control with healthcare well before obama care. now what's interesting is that the president said that it was because of those spiraling healthcare costs and that's what obama care would help fix. but it doesn't seem as though that's working for
3:20 am
the cleveland clinic. >> well, we have always acknowledged and americans all over the country acknowledge that healthcare reform is very needed. it's just not a federal takeover of healthcare because doctors and patients and good hospitals like the cleveland clinic know a lot more how to provide healthcare than unelected bureaucrats in washington, d.c. there are plans that we have in the republican-led house to put patient-centered solutions in place, but, as you well know, alli, we have gotten no cooperation from the senate in order to do that. >> it is a tough one. bill johnson, thanks so much for joining us this morning. >> thank you, alli. >> still ahead, he tried to do the right thing, turn in the pocket knife that he accidently brought to a school football game. and it got him suspended. but there is a big update to this story so we will tell you about that plus, it's a controversial plan. make people on food stamps do community service in
3:21 am

3:24 am
>> it is 24 minutes now past the hour. welcome back to "fox & friends." michigan passing two controversial bills this week. one requiring those collecting unemployment, take a drug test. and another requiring those getting food stamps to take part in community service. while some say this is a way to ensure not abuse the system others think it's a violation of rights. >> welcome to both of our guests this morning. richard, let me start with you, one of the senators there in the state of michigan said there is absolutely nothing wrong with requiring folks to have a little skin in this game. as it relates to collecting
3:25 am
food stamps. what do you say to that richard? >> i have got to tell you i think when you talk about food stamps and you talk about the individuals and feeding their families and trying to feed their children to add another stipulation to this and saying that you now have to be forced to do community service or forced to take drug tests is just an attempt to sort of block me them from getting food for their kids. that's just shocking to me. >> alisyn, what do you think about the food stamps portion of this? >> well, i think that's more -- it's important to look at that in terms of the broader picture. i'm we'rey of the specific food stamp bill that has been proposed in michigan. i think what it is an effort to do is to sort of give people a level of accountability. crystal made the argument social program that worked well was night school. the idea behind it opportunity program and one that provided people because it builds on existing moat visions. i think the people to have a stake in their community when they are receiving funds that are provided by other people in their communities for their food stamps is an effort to provide them with external motivation and like the
3:26 am
senator did say to put a little skin in the game for them. provides them an opportunity to give back, a comparable way to give back to their community when their other community members are paying taxes that they use to get food stamp. >> richard, you think this is unconstitutional, how so? >> i think it's unconstitutional. two bills in michigan state house. one bill is the community service bill. the other bill is the drug testing bill. you put those together so you basically -- you are violating the fourth amendment. you have to -- you are forcing them to get drug tests. now you are forcing them to get community service all because they want to give their children food? it boggles the mind to me. and i think to add to that, this is about elevating those that are the least among us. if we want to elevate them by giving them stuff by adding stipulations to it, it makes it hard to prove that we're really try to elevate them. >> alisyn you disagree. >> i do. it's not unconstitutional not requiring anyone to take these drug tests. adding a stipulation to it something that already has
3:27 am
prerequisites to the program anyway. this is a program that has these type of government benefit programs do have abuse. it's not issue say on the right or conservatives say obama administration tried to address in 2011 with campaign to cut wastes. it isn't just the one problem. do i think it's not unconstitutional like i said because it is simply establish ago prerequisite. you don't have to take it i think what this is working towards though is a desire to film a void where there is lack of accountability. government student loans you know where that money is going it goes directly to schools. with food stamps and government benefits you don't know where the cash is going to. they are trying to fill that void. >> i think you know exactly where cash is going. put food in the mouth of babies. grocery stores and corner stores get apples and nutrition they desperately need. the fact that a stipulation in my mind is another loophole that these parents have to go through to make sure they can feed their families discouraging and disheartening for the
3:28 am
american people. >> we appreciate you joining us bright and early. now you have the rest of the day to look forward. >> to thanks for having me. >> coming up on the show, don't take her picture or i will swipe your phone away and delete it why hillary clinton's people are on the attack. grab people's cell phones. plus, thousands of people waiting in line for the brand new iphone. does it live up to the hype? i'm going to break it it all down for you. i have both new phones here on the set. plus, i'm going to tell you how you can turn your old phone into cash with the trade-in program that's rolling out. ♪

>> well, may have thought if you were at the top of your class you are certain to succeed. may be true in several cases but not the court system. opposite may be the case. even as the federal judiciary gets more powerful, our benches are no longer filled with the best and the brightest. john lot is the author of the new book dumbing down the courts. how politics keep the
3:47 am
smartest judges off the bunch. john, thanks for joining us. quite a provocative thieves here that our federal judges are getting dumber even as he they are getting more powerful. why is this happening? >> well, i started this project originally just because we all know the confirmations have gotten a lot more vicious and confrontational over time. but i was advised to find that it's not equally tougher for everybody. >> particularly go after the toughest ones. you know, you were on a jury or called up for jury duty. my guess is you wouldn't be allowed on the jury. because you are very articulate guy. and the lawyers on either side would look to see whether you are tilting slightly one way or the other. you you are more than one vote. you would influence two or three or four other members of the panel that would be there. >> i would sure try. >> right. but, a judge is similar. you know, if they are an appeals court or supreme court. they are just not worried about their own vote. the fact that they could influence other judges. not only on their panels but if they write
3:48 am
decisions, they could influence judges around the country in terms of what they write. >> that makes complete sense. do we have evidence that this is actually true, that judges who are more impressive have a tougher chance getting confirmed? >> yeah. it's pretty amazing. if you go to a top ten law school for example, and graduate from the top' 10% of your class, it takes about 70% long tore get through the confirmation process than somebody who doesn't -- didn't go to a top school. >> no way. >> and didn't do particularly well. >> talk about a perverse incentive. >> right. another way you could look at influence is citations to a judge's opinions by other judges. how often do they really on your opinions that you write? if you are 20% more sights than the average. it took you 60% longer to get through the confirmation process. >> that's just totally distressing. you are one of the country's great experts on firearms and policy around guns so i cannot resist asking you. what you made of the media coverage of the shootings earlier this week at the navy yard in washington. >> well, i think, i mean,
3:49 am
obviously they made a lot of mistakes in terms of ar-15 and other things. i suppose it's disappointing that people within an hour or two even before they know what happened are already speaking out on these issues. but, there is one thing that kind of bothers me about the media coverage, generally. and that is they never mentioned that this happens in a gun-free zone. you may have some commentary later that does. virtually every attack that we have had keeps on occurring there it's the easiest thing to check out. >> gun free zones? >> right beings -- right, exactly. obviously we know soldiers aren't allowed to have side arms with them on military bases. i saw interview with the father of a marine who was stationed there saying that he was only a couple minutes away but even though is he an expert in urban warfare he didn't have a gun with ammunition that could go and allow him to stop the attack that's there. >> totally distressing and good point. john lot. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> new book out on federal

washington you may have been following. the house votes to encould the government running through mid december. there is the question of whether the congress can run out of money to fund the government only if congress defunds obama care. this is set off a fight within the republican party. of course, between republicans and the white house and even between the house and senate. republican senator ted cruz of texas made this point about his efforts to defund obama care. listen. >> i believe we can win this fight. and i don't think anyone can look at what i have said and done. what mike lee has said and done and have any doubt that we are going to fight with every ounce of breath in our bodies to defund obama care. no democrat is going to join us until republicans are unified. i will tell you, look, if you are a red state democrat from arkansas from louisiana, and you start getting 5,000, 10,000, 20,000, 50,000 calls from your constituents, saying obama care is killing our jobs. it is hurting americans. suddenly your calculus changes.
4:08 am
>> other republicans aren't exactly sure the strategy here which is to lump in obama care as part of a government spending bill. why not decouple it, take it out and let it stand on its own. vote for it on its own. senator john mccain said we don't have the math. we don't have the numbers. wife would we vote this way? so others saying let it stand on its own. let it go through vote on its own and fail on its own without sticking in some government funding bill. >> some have called it a cam that come causey mission. some believe ted cruz is standing on principle and that's what he was elected to do he believes. here is charles krauthammer's particular on it last night. >> obama care is so unpopular even the unions are up in arms against it the afl-cio came within a hair of calling for its repeal. right now they want all kinds of changes which they are not going to get. democrats against it. you have got it's about to kick in and we heard today that they don't even have the software that will
4:09 am
enable the system to calculate what the subsidies are this is going to be a complete disaster. we are on the flesh hold of that. as chuck indicates the republicans are on the upswing on the issues. now, this it's insane. it's not going to happen. >> yeah. charles krauthammer crystallizes the truth. i would say better and more quickly than everybody i have ever met. i think this is absolutely right. obama care doesn't work as a policy matter. as a practical matter it doesn't work. people are going to be thrown off of their insurance. less choice. healthcare more expensive. it's going to hurt the middle class. that's already happening. why not allow obama to make, you know, the case for republicans, basically his signature domestic program doesn't work and it's hurting america. the story is about that it's about him and his screw up and the democratic congress' screw up. why are republicans making it about him. >> obviously the hasn't started with. the reports are obviously troubling and a majority of americans in polls say that they're concerned and have
4:10 am
anxiety about obama care but it hasn't started yet. it starts october 1st. >> but the policy -- to tucker's point the policy debate should unfold on its own merits. being coupled with this extension of government spending programs. now, republicans end up looking like the bad guys and that was bill o'reilly's point last night here. decouple it vote on its own. now you have instead soldiers going off to work. under this -- when the money runs out, soldiers will go off the to work, he they have to report to work. yet, they won't be paid. you try go to washington, d.c. go, to smithsonian institute. field trip or whatever. they will be closed. all these government workers who won't be receiving paychecks. a lot of the infrastructure will remain. republicans like 1996 will be left holding the bag and be the ones. >> here is what i don't understand. this week the house took up alternative to obama irca. i had a briefing in my office from one of the members pushing this. lots of really smart ideas in here. why don't republicans in the house take these ideas to the public. one of them, for example, was tort reform. don't people benefit from the current tort system are
4:11 am
1500 rich trial lawyers no one likes them and nobody should. why not sell health insurance across state lines. add competition. like who is against it? nobody is against that. you could pass bill after bill after bill. bills make healthcare better. >> fixing it. the president has been open to tort reform. he put thatten othe table. >> he totally opposed tort reform. he pretends because there is no defending it. >> everybody says they wanted it and strangely it didn't make it in. >> because they pay for democratic campaigns. biggest funders. >> need to tell you about something that happened in maryland. you may have heard of common core. the federal education standards that have been adopted by 45 states i believe already. and many parents object to some of the things in common core. so one father went to this public forum in maryland where parents' questions were going to be addressed by the school board when he attempted to ask a
4:12 am
question. here is what happened. >> the question is education standard prepare for community cleaning that's what it is all about. >> let him ask his question. >> next question. >> answer his question. >> this is a dove tail. >> don't stand for. this you are sitting here like cowards. you have questions. you confront them. they don't want to do it in public. [several shouting] >> then he was thrown out. >> how could can people stand for that that's a great question. some creep wagging his badge like that ends the controversy. i have a badge shut up and obey. no. how do people sit in this room allow this father, this citizen to be treated like a criminal for the crime of asking a question. stand up and say you will not treat him that way. >> because that security guard was actually a police officer. i think he was on off duty police officer. that father was actually arrested and handcuffed and sat on the curb outside of the meeting. so, when there is a police officer saying you have got to get out. listen to me or you are going to be arrested. everybody cared. >> he is not god. this is our country.
4:13 am
you are not allowed to treat citizens like that. people should stand up and say i don't care. i'm not going to allow this to happen. >> maybe the way that the meeting was structured, tucker, might change your mind. because they said you had to pre-write. [ laughter ] >> send in your questions ahead of time and then they would respond to the written questions. he didn't follow protocol. >> he didn't. that's why he got arrested. >> oh, you didn't tell me that. i didn't realize he didn't follow the script. >> i used paper coffee cup almost arrested me. ceramic right now. [sirens] >> please pardon my outburst. >> let us know what you think about this story. >> putin's russia. >> find us all on twitter. >> coming up on this show that you are watching, it's "fox & friends." first, president obama trusted russian president vladimir putin. now iran's president wants to talk nuclear power with him. can iran really be trusted. talk to a family roomer cia operative who lived under cover in iran for many years. >> plus, one guy taking his

4:18 am
nothing to do with weapons. do we believe that? >> no serious observer or expert in the iranian area, their nuclear program believes that it is, as said in the post in his post piece, it's a diversifying their energy resources. iran has all the energy it could possibly use in gas and petroleum it has. >> anna: at this quated system. yet they invested trillions of dollars in a nuclear program that is very obviously designed to make nuclear weapons. >> okay. so you have spent your life abroad including in the middle east in and iran. you are saying that you think it's possible they got weapons technology from the former soviet union before it collapsed because this program has been going on a long time. >> there is a belief in the intelligence community

that is the inability to state obvious truths and the shooting that we saw monday in washington. >> well, tucker, you look at what happened in fort hood and major hasan had made all sorts of pro--statements to colleagues. nobody go anything. nobody wanted to be perceived as being anti-muslim so no investigation, was conducted. you look at aaron alexis. i want to see this guy's get out of jail free card tucker. this guy was the navy reserve for three or four years. cited at least 8 different times for misconduct and the military wanted it throw him out under less than honorable circumstances which would have made him ineligible probably to be a military contractor but they didn't want to do it. he is arrested three different times in three different states rg washington,georgia and texas. two of which involved shooting a firearm. in one case he told the authorities he blacked out. still not charged and the other one he shoots through the roof of his apartment through the floor below apparently because of a dispute over making too much noise. tells the police is he
5:18 am
cleaning his gun. is he not charged. and so, in my opinion, probably because a lot of people didn't want to deal with the angry black guy who might be playing the race card. we know this guy has played the race card before. he went to thailand, fell in love with somebody. she didn't reciprocate. called her racist. called the general contractor racist. he called the navy racist. a lot of people along the way didn't want to mess with the guy. i'm not going to charge him and the hell with it the people weren't doing their job because of political correctness. got people killed. >> not like there were no signs. he was picked up by the cops in newport rhode island a couple weeks ago displaying flagrant signs of mental illness. not criticizing the guy. it's obvious you know when someone is in the throws of schizophrenia. it's obvious. nobody acted on that? bizarre to me. >> tucker, the question is, are people tiptoeing and not doing their jobs because of the fear of being called anti-muslim or fear of being called racist? out here in l.a.

7:12 am
that was an up in the air question, but only if congress defunds obama care. this set off a massive fight not just between republicans and democrats, but the congress and white house, the house and the senate. senator ted cruz of texas vows to fight on. >> i believe we can win this fight. i don't think anyone can look at what i've said and done, what mike lee has said and done and have any doubt we are going to fight with every ounce of breath in our bodies to defund obama care. no democrat is going to join us until republicans are unified. i'll tell you. look, if you are a red state democrat from arkansas, louisiana, and you start getting $5,000, $10,000, 50,000 calls from constituents saying obama care is killing our jobs, hurting americans, suddenly your calculus changes. >> others angry saying it's political grandstanding, trying
7:13 am
to raise money for president, not focused on defunding obama care. why couple it with this spending bill? let it stand on its own, vote it down on its own. >> it appears to be an exercise in futility because it can't pass the senate. it will be vetoed if it were to, if senator cruz were to sway even democrats, then the president said he would veto this. the question is why do it and governor huckabee was on our program earlier and said he agreed with some of the people who said you have to let obama care live or die of its own merits. listen to what the governor said. >> republicans need to let the democrats stew in their own juice here. for the next year in the election cycle, make it very clear, you own this thing. obama care is costing you jobs, costing you hours. it messed a lot of people's lives up and guess who owns it? there wasn't one republican vote in the house or senate when it passed.
7:14 am
>> this thing went through. now we are headed for a government shutdown. there are a couple of different outcomes which are fascinating. one of which is that the president would veto this, which he says he is going to. the government shuts down, the president doesn't budge. if the president agrees to negotiate like he did in 2011, then we could have some sort of cross-pollenation of these bills. >> there are people saying, if it's so bad for america, why would congress allow obama care to be imposed on america? if you're against it, vote against it. vote your conscience. my view it's upsettingly taking the focus away from obama care itself. we should debate the merits of the program. it doesn't work. it's obvious. a lot of democrats feel this way. it's going to hurt this country for real. that's not what we are talking about. we are talking about this wrangling in congress. >> congress is good at wrangling
7:15 am
and good at gridlock and doesn't seem so good at civility any more. that's been decades in the coming. this democrat official has been forced to resign over twitter comments he made about senator ted cruz. >> he was an aide to democratic official alan broward. he said, may your children all die from debilitating painful and incurable diseases. he has since been fired. >> the parties are not the same on this many on the left see politics as an end in itself. they mean it. it's totally heartfelt. nothing is too far for people like that. if you believe these are life and death issues, you can't compromise and you're willing to wish death on your opponents. there is a level of commitment. i don't see it on the right, anyway. >> let us know what you think.
