tv The Real Story With Gretchen Carlson FOX News December 4, 2013 11:00am-12:01pm PST
>> we await to see if and when. until then, if you so much for watching. i'm salison. >> i'm bill and this is gretchen. >> breaking news this hour. 911 calls from the connecticut school massacre being released right now. the white house opening a youth summit a day after a young woman introduces the president at a pep rally and showing that most done like this signature law. forced to read an apology on cam. i hope you are having a great day. we are live now at the white
house. earlier today he turned to the economy calling the growing income gap a defining challenge of our time. chief white house correspondent ed henry is with us. >> this is a president who has been struggling in dealing with the health care law. how does he do that. partly by rallying in this political base. before the liberal group center for american progress. that is another key part of his base. they helped elect him and get those young people out there talking about the health care law and talking about what you said he wanted to really stress at this economic speech which is what he calls the defining issue
of our time. listen to this. >> if republicans have concrete plans that will actually reduce in equality and build the middle class let's hear them. i want to know what they are. if you don't think we should raise the minimum wage, let's hear your ideas. >> you hear the president there calling out republicans on the hill. he did that yesterday when he tried to reboot the health care law. he was doing the same here on the economy. he got some strong push back today. he said republicans have all kinds of plans to deal with these issues. he goes on almost every other friday night and repeals the bill itself. he signed 7 bills and so he knows the bill won't work.
he has to listen what is going on. a new poll came out this week that the more people know the stronger they disapprove of it. another poll republicans are jumping on today is one suggesting that 18 to 29-year-olds are not buying into the law. 56% of them saying that they disapprove of the act. he is trying to get the young healthy people to sign up for this law. they are going to do that in the long run but it is clearly a challenge. ed henry thanks so much. >> pay your fair share and at the same time i found it a bit
ironic because in essence it could be the middle class that is getting hit by obama care more than anyone else. this speech sound ed a lot likea speech he gave in kansas. he was hitting on income inequality saying the growing deficit problems according to president obama and said that is the biggest challenge of our time and said that he is going to spend the last three years in office trying to battle that. that is a populist kind of message one that he tried to strike before the election of 2012 and again that he has tried to hit again and again about income in equality. it is tough for the president to make with this president dealing with the economy that he has been staeering now for a few
years. >> i want to turn you to obama care. the administration it appears now knew more and more and more from the federal register in fact mid range estimates show that 76% of small group plans would be cancelled. 55% of large employer plans would be 63% in all. what do you make of this. >> jim engel has been getting into the weeds of this. this is from the federal register. this is their projections of the total 157 million employer policies set to be cancelled next year of the 157 million, next year according to the projections, you had the mid range estimates 76% of the small group, 55% of the large employer
plans and overall 63%. these are the administration's own projections back in 2010 for 2014. if anyone says that they didn't know this was going to happen or that this was a mistake that you could keep your plan and everyone would have the same doctor and plan. call they would have to do is look at the administration themselves. >> they tried to bring a bill to the senate and grand father in the bill. we will be watching tonight at 6:00 eastern time. thank you so much. we want to hear from you. send us your thoughts on obama's economic speech. weigh in and we will read your comments at the end of the show.
former president bill clinton saying that when he urged the president to keep his promise to millions of americans, that he was trying to help. >> i don't think you can find anybody in america you has worked harder for his re-election or went out of his way to explain the bill to more people than i did. >> great to see you governor. >> thank you nice to be with you. what do you make of the former president? you worked for him. you know him well. he got president obama to make a move and come forward and make an apology and now he is saying he is trying to help. i fall on what president clinton said. he was trying to be helpful. he campaigned for the health care act and been at president
obama's side. i think those rocks were miss interpreted. the truth is that president obama has said that if you are able to keep your health care plan you can do it. i think he is trying to fix that. i don't think that president clinton was trying to create distance for the next race. >> so you don't think it had anything to do with trying to keep hillary clinton out of the mix? >> i don't think so. they are very tied together. it is going to be hard to separate them. i don't think there was any distance that the president was trying to create. >> american hostage crisis playing out at the same time as the political shake up. kim john un now apparently trying to oust his uncle. and this case having an impact on the case of merrill new man
who has been detained in north korea for six weeks now. >> i can understand that in u.s. and western countries there is misleading information and propaganda. well, governor, you know a lot about this and you have gone to north korea and been successful several times. where does this case stand? >> well, this is very, very flabbergasting and bizarre. this american korean war veteran, he is 85 years old. he has a heart condition and they pulled him out of the war veteran to make him into a hostage. it seems that, the new leader is trying to send messages. he is consolidating his power and he's replaced several people in the north korean military
that he feels were his father's people and not his. this is the second american hostage. kenneth bay has been detained for a year. and now we have this korean war veteran who has been detained. and it seems very, very bizarre. >> what might you be able to do about it. you went over in january to get kenneth bay released and you were not allowed to meet with him. would you consider going over to help merrill? only if the family of merrill newman asked me. i think the state department is handling this well. i think the north koreans are holding us to the bargaining chips. i think the best thing to do is
see what the north koreans do. at the same time, i think new channels need to be opened. i would get korean war veteran's groups to be active and get him out. kenneth bay, also the squewedes maybe a special envoy. the relationship right now is not strong and not good. the chinese may try to help us. but i don't count on it right now with the issues in the high seas. >> maybe you will get an invitation you were successful in bringing 7 remains back in 2007 of war veterans. i have to go but thank you so much for your time today. >> what is happening right now. youth summit at the white house
