3:05 am
house oversight is about to release later today a report that shows, you know those navigators, those people hired -- although they didn't submit to a background check -- to go ahead and sell people, try to sign people up for obamacare, as it turns out, a lot of them were never certified, not properly trained. but also others told people to underreport their income so they would qualify for subsidies. in one case i know that a navigator said, oh, you're a smoker? don't tell the federal government that because then your premium's going to go way up. so, smoker, no smoker. fraud. >> they may not have done the 5 to 20 hour training. but that doesn't matter because they're breaking rules any way. they need to learn the rules to break them apparently. according to the findings of this committee, the violations are broad here. so we have, if you could see up here, we have mismanagement is what was found. the navigators actually
3:06 am
induced fraudulent behavior. a real threat to the safety of consumers' personally identifiable information such as social security number, yearly income and other sensitive tax information according to report. >> there was a lack of oversight. the only reason they found this out, by listening to some of these navigators give an interview on television talking about giving incorrect information, telling applicants eroepb news thing like -- erroneous things like credit scores are going to matter. it came to life when a certified navigator came on television giving an interview. they have a series of mistakes the navigators made who are out there to help us avoid a series of mistakes we're doing as users. some of this stuff was actually cited on the "new york times" but mostly it was in the bright >> mailing applications for applicants, which is not allowed; is it? >> it seems these unqualified, uncertified navigators, can you really
3:07 am
even trust them? we've heard that there's a possibility -- yeah, we might have hired some convicted felons. that's not for me. that's from the boss. listen to her. >> isn't it true that there is no federal requirement for navigators to undergo a criminal background check even though they will receive personal -- sensitive personal information from the individuals they helped sign up for the affordable care act? >> that is true. states could add an additional background checks and other features, but it is not part of the federal requirement. >> so a convicted felon could be a navigator and could acquire sensitive personal information from an individual unbeknownst to them? >> that is possible. >> that didn't even address the fraud. >> exactly. >> right. we can't be surprised if they fall short because there is no oversight and we don't even know their background checks.
3:08 am
we can't get background checks on them. charles krauthammer who has the number-one book in the country has been doing interviews. he hopped on pbs. if you do any rundown, it should lead to obamacare. good and bad stories are coming out at a massive rate and the president's numbers are suffering because of it. it makes people prove he had a wasted first year. charles krauthammer was surprised when the number one story coming from pbs was this alleged fighting between tea party's heritage foundation and the speaker of the house. listen to charles on pbs. >> i love how you guys just can't wait to get your teeth into republicans throwing mud at republicans on a week when this administration unilaterally or lawlessly changed every deadline in the obamacare law without any legal authority in a way that is absolutely astonishing. but you won't hear about this on this show. >> we just did.

3:47 am
disease. first of all, a lack of personal responsibility is not a disease. it is a choice. that choice stems from our very moral core that plays with it and says this is the right thing to do, this is the wrong thing to do. then we have a judge that comes along and says that you don't have to impose consequences based on the fact that your parents had money. how stupid is that? what an attack on people who have done well, worked hard, become affluent and are doing a great job teaching their kids to be responsible. it has nothing to do with whether you have money or don't have money. it comes down to good parenting. and this guy got off for a stupid reason. and the judge should be ashamed. >> that's just it. it's one thing for the defense attorney. they've got to come up with something. they came wup that. the -- they came up with that. the judge fell for that cockamamie excuse. what kind of a jam does that put parents in?
3:48 am
you want to provide for your children but now somebody looks at this and says if my kids come from a successful family they might not have to work as hard. they might use that as an excuse going forward. >> i think the whole attack about having money, that's just a load of crap. there's nothing that backs that up that says if you have money that you're going to raise kids who are not responsible. that is not fair to people who have done well, as i said, and become affluent. the other problem i see is that it creates more disrespect for our legal system and drives a bigger wedge between the haves and have-nots. so people who have not done well get to say those lucky rich people, they don't ever have anything done to them. the legal system always takes care of them. and that's the dangerous message, i believe. >> you're uniquely qualified to answer this question. you said you grew up poor. initially when you were married with kids, they were poor. you became affluent later. was it harder once you had
3:49 am
money to get your values and morals across? >> no. actually i believe it might have been easier because i told them and showed them through my results that if you do the right thing, take responsibility for your actions, work hard and become affluent, then that's what you really should be striving for. again, being responsible has nothing to do with money. there are poor parents who do a great job teaching personal responsibility. but there are rich parents who also do areat job teaching personal responsibility. it's not about the money. it's about your willingness as a parent to sit down and teach your kids what that means and to impose consequences. right now we live in a spoet where we don't -- we live in a society where we don't impose consequences when we see bad behavior. that is the problem. >> that is the problem. larry wingate's latest book is called grow a pair. the quote from that segment right there, affluenza is a

4:08 am
just taking all the checks and balances out of it. if you just put it on, you think you qualify. the problem is, the insurance companies, they don't know. nobody knows what you have, so people think they have now health insurance. they don't have anything. nobody knows what's happening. the plans are not work. the sad thing is 55 million people were taken off plans that they love. and that's, by the way, raising all the time. so it's a real problem. it's very unfair. we had a system and we could have taken that system and made it really, really good and instead, we blew up the system that worked for many people. >> you are absolutely right about that. good morning. >> good morning, elisabeth. >> question for you here. should we be calling you or could we be calling you governor trump pretty soon? there is word out today that you could be setting the table for a gubernatorial run. can that be true? a ton of people would be happy about that. >> it's very interesting. a lot of the republican leaders from new york came to see me last week and they wanted me to
4:09 am
do that. i'll make a decision at some time pretty soon, i think. but it was not what i had in mind. they came and they wanted -- very strongly wanted to see me and very strongly want me to do it. new york state has a lot of problems. we have the highest taxes in the nation, which people are not exactly thrilled about. and there is no reason to have that. and there are a lot of other problems. let's see what happens. i had something else in mind. this was not actually something i wanted to do. i love the state. i love the country, but they feel very strongly about it. at some point i'll make a decision. >> what else did you have in mind? >> well, i had something else in mind. >> what was it? >> well, let's -- >> it was president. >> it's actually -- we'll talk about that during commercial. it's interesting, what's going on. there are lots of things. i also love what i'm doing more than anything. i just love what i'm doing. as you know, we opened the blue
4:10 am
monster, you know about that. we just opened the blue monster over the weekend on saturday. we had a big ribbon cutting down at dural and it was fantastic in miami. 800-acres in the middle of miami i'm rebuilding it. it's great. but we have a lot of interesting things. but new york state is in trouble. there is no question about it. >> if you look at what's been happening on the federal level, with this president, his gigantic rollout and it's gone so badly on so many different levels and people are going, we told you ahead of time, this is somebody who had never run anything before. to your point, whether it's governor or running for president, you're somebody who has a lot of experience running things that work out okay. >> what really is hard for me to believe is that if this was his legacy, he got it passed by one vote. he got it passed with a lie. because when he made the statement about you can keep your plan, you'll keep your doctor, the whole thing, everything, so many times, like 29 times or 34 times.
4:11 am
i see different things. he got it passed by one vote. had he not said that, it could never have passed. and you would think that the web site would have been flawless. you would have thought that he would have been meeting with these people every day. he would never have chosen the people that were chosen because they're in litigation all overt place for having done a very poor job at other locations on much smaller, ease your places. so you would have thought where so much was riding on the success of obamacare would have been absolutely fantastic with respect to -- he would have been meeting with people every day. he should have called microsoft. he should have called google or any one of the great companies they could have done this stuff blindfolded and he said that he had nothing to do with it. how can you have nothing to do with it when your whole legacy is riding on obamacare? now obamacare is a total disaster and it's embarrassing to everybody, including the country itself. 'cause what's going on with the country, the whole world is talking about what a disaster this thing is.
4:12 am
so anyway, it's dying of its own weight. it's based on lies and unfortunately, much of the administration is based on lies. >> right. china is challenging us at sea, the ukraine is asking for help and we have to send a senator over there to let them know we are there for him. it's pretty bad. i think most people, and i thought it was very telling that most democrats are admitting it was a wasted year one of the second term. >> i think worst than waste, wasted would be like nothing happened. only bad things happened. if you look at what's going on, so many bad things happened. it's interesting, you think something like benghazi and people don't talk about that much, it never resonates, it's such a horrible thing, but i don't know that it ever will resonate. the things that happened to us, we are not the same country that we were in terms of respect, in terms of so many other things. this wasn't really a wasted year. this was a negative year. >> a lost year. donald trump, congratulations

4:19 am
not attack you personally, but we want you to know the truth, that there is a god who created you and you are sinners, as all of us are, but that god sent his son to become the babe in a manger and that's what christmas is all about. remembering christ, god's son, who came to die on the cross for our sin, be raised from the dead. that's why we give free gifts, we freely give gifts to remind us of the free gift of salvation. >> american people seem to agree. they were asked in a poll, should christmas be more about jesus or santa? and 67% said jesus. only 17% said santa. to your point, they seem to be with you and happy for everyone to just be kind and let everyone worship as they may. right? >> well, the majority of people actually support christ in christmas. majority of people do support that. the atheists are only a small part of the population and really it's that minority, less than 2% of the population that seem to be having such say in

not that the government forces them to buy. >> what are the basic differences in -- purchasing across state lines? >> purchasing across state lines, equalize the tax treatment for individuals so folks have the same tax incentive to purchase health coverage as businesses. you make it so every single american has the financial feasibility to make deductions through credits and advancable credits. and wonderful ways to save hundreds of billions of dollars in health care by ending the practice of defensive medicine. >> not only do you know this and are you on the advice chair of the budget committee in the house, but also a doctor. so this is what -- i imagine could have been somewhat of a surprise, but pleasant surprise, former cbo director said this, it will produce $2.34 trillion in savings over the next ten years. it will create smaller premium increases than the affordable care act. and the number of insured could increase by 29% in 2016. you handle people with preexisting condition. >> we do, by making it so they can get the coverage that they want.
4:48 am
not that the government forces them to buy. the problem with the president's plan is that if they don't think your preexisting condition is a preexisting condition, you're out of luck because nobody wins an appeal with the federal government. we allow people to pool together with millions of other americans so you get the purchasing power of millions so one person's adverse health condition doesn't drive up the costs for others. >> so the government who decides -- >> they're going to define what panel, what doctors you can see, what drugs you can take, what formulary of drugs will be available to you. this is just beginning to unfold and the american people know it's wrong. >> so you've answered the president's question, if you ever good ideas, i want to hear it. you're saying, i'm not going to fix your plan, mr. president. it's not fixable. you're saying, go with my plan. when will this be presented? >> we've presented it, hr 2300. this is the third congress this has been introduced. we had it when the president made his statements early on with obamacare. if you've got another idea, give us a call. let us know.
4:49 am
we've actually called him. we've contacted the white house repeatedly. it's crickets. the fact is they don't want to talk about the quality of health care, accessibility to health care, affordability. they want the government to control health care. >> do you have obamacare? >> we're forced on to it because of the law, yeah. >> what have you found? >> so far that's more expensive than what i had previously and as i'm able to determine, it looks like the panels are going to be smaller. that's going to be true for the vast majority of the american people as they work through this and we see that it's going to cost more, accessability will be less and the quality i believe will be less as well. that's not right. that's not what the american people want. >> we have the support behind you on this in terms of what i read so far. so we wish you well, congressman. thank you for being here. >> thank you so much. merry christmas to you. >> you would think as a doctor you would be invaluable in congress, but yet you have to sit there and not get any response from the white house. >> shocking. >> 11 minutes before the top of the hour. >> so you just heard an alternative to obamacare.

5:02 am
obama navigators are reportedly purposely telling people to underreport their income so they would qualify tore subsidies, all the while putting your information at risk, no background checks. what's your take on that and what's worse? >> this is a report that's out today from the house government oversight reform committee chairman darrell issa, holding a field hearing outside of dallas this afternoon. we've obt report that they are putting out this afternoon. it's pretty detailed and it has all kinds of allegations in there about these navigators. one of them, as you mentioned, they have specific allegations of incidents where navigators told people to essentially deflate their income to get subsidies. others said that they would mail in the application so that they took in the applications and they filled out the applications for them and they mailed them in for the applicants.
5:03 am
and a host of other charges. the main one, though, is about not knowing whether these navigators have checked through background checks and how they're handling personal information. there have been a couple incidents with social security numbers and other personal information that really is raising questions. they're going to go over that in detail at this field hearing outside dallas this afternoon. >> in fact, as you know, we heard not long ago from kathleen sebelius, yeah, we don't know if we hired convicted felons. what's troubling about the fact that you've got these navigators telling people to deflate your income so you get a subsidy, a subsidy really, it's fraud on a number of levels. but that money is coming from all of us to help the people who truly need help paying their bills. >> sure. there is a stipulation that a certain number and a percentage of below that percentage get the subsidies. those are all taxpayer dollars,

you're right. those are the folks that will get the assistance on this program. there are a lot of questions here as we get towards the end of the year and up until this point, this has all been talking about web sites and kind of eherial stuff. january 1, you're talking about health care and people going to doctors and saying, i need to be treated and there will be real world consequences after the first of the year. >> you can't get into the airport without i.d your story might be real, but if you don't have i.d., it won't work. like health care. i got to tell you, first off, i was listening to brit hume yesterday on fox news sunday and he's saying right now people with preexisting conditions are finding insurance companies not paying on all of them. there is a way of them getting around paying them or there is a glitch or bug in the system. have you heard that? >> yeah.
5:05 am
i heard brit yesterday and i've heard stories of this. i think there are a lot of things that we're just learning about how this all is working out in coming weeks. how it's all coming together. there are a lot of different elements -- because it's all changed. doctors will tell you they're finding out as they're going along here. every deadline has shifted. december 23rd has shifted with the administration asking for it to be shifted to december 31st for insurers to accept enrollees, and then cover them on january 1st. a lot of deadlines have been shifted and a lot of things will change. i think we're all learning different aspects of it. >> sure. big gap between what's being said and what's being done it seems. when we hear the president say, if republicans have ideas, bring them to me. i'll take a look. well, we talked to congressman tom price today and listen to what he had to say about that.

we've heard a lot about obamacare delays over the last couple of months. so what's the holdup? this morning we might know. according to a new report from the administrative conference of
5:15 am
the united states, many proposals took longer because of concerns about agencies issuing costlier controversial rules prior to the november 2012 election. does that mean the white house, who is putting politics before people because that's what it sounds like? peter johnson, jr. knows about people and joins us. >> huge, huge -- look at me -- yes. huge. and i know we talk about regulation nation and there are so many regulations in this country. but sometimes regulations actually save lives and help people and there should be some transparency in government. "washington post," along with the government independent agency looked at what the obama administration was doing and found in three different areas, the obama administration delayed regulation in order to win reelection. yes, steve, they said we don't want to get people worked up. now in the "washington post," we have these off the record comments that they're making. we didn't do it because the republicans were upset about us.
5:16 am
this is a difficult environment. this is all nonsense. so let's look at what they did in terms of delaying things. first, in terms of environmental issues and pollution control. they delayed a proposal requiring cleaning glass in vehicles. they delayed coal disposal, water pollution and power plant emission standards. and then in terms of lakes and springs and estuaries, they delayed important regulations to make sure those bodies of water that are fisher -- our fishermen fish are protected. then workers safety. democrats say they're so interested about workers' safety. the afl-cio is slamming them hard now about national silica standards, things that cause lung diseases and say thousands of people will die or become ill because the federal government delayed. then finally, listen to this, on obamacare, because of reelection
5:17 am
in 2012, according to the "washington post" and this independent agency, they delayed regulations with regard to minimum coverage standards because the unions were upset and who could qualify for federal subsidies. in these three important areas in terms of health, safety, welfare and obamacare, they said, no, the president's reelection is more important. we're going to put politics over people. you people wait and now we have the effects of it. >> so they didn't want anything out there that would have people going oh, we don't like that, in particular the obamacare stuff. it looks like if you do anything to win, sometimes you lose, because they've got health care at the white house because people are upset. >> this is pulling the skin back even further. we all know about the president's unfortunate statement that turned out to be a lie about keeping your health plan, keeping your health coverage, keeping your doctor and then the dark of night they came in with the regulation and
5:18 am
said oh, no, we're going to pull that back. what they did in 2011 and 2012 is say, let's not do these regulations because we're going to incur the ire of the american people on a lot of issues. let's kind of stealthily sneak in and then do it later. but at the same time, some of these regulations were important in terms of helping all americans. they weren't political at all, but they perceived that they were and they said, oh, let's not take a risk. well, they took a risk with americans' lives and now americans are paying both in health care, environmental issues, and on workers' safety. thousands may die, according to the afl-cio based on these silica standards. that's wrong. hugely wrong. they should be angry about it. >> peter johnson, jr. >> good to see you. >> thank you very much. what do you think about that? e-mail us. 19 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, he's a gridiron superstar and the popular kid in school. but when he's not on the field, spends most of his time taking

>> and microchipped to track him. >> can you tell me about -- >> obviously they need separate homes. >> they've been playing in the hotel room all night. >> that's okay. >> too bad it has to come to this. but what do you mean by amazon? how can you find out about the likes and dislikes on amazon? >> what we have created is a list that would benefit the animals in our care directly. so there are items that would be music to play in the kennels to keep the animals calm, or maybe it's an extra bowl because we go through bowls like crazy, or a nice big fluffy blanket for an animal who needs it. >> the wish list is help the animals when they're there, and at the same time, people can work on finding a home for them? >> yeah. you can view our available animals on-line. but also if you're looking to adopt, you can inquire with your local shelter. >> sure. you can put one in your cart. next thing you know, you got a

dog at home of the since you were here last year, you got a new program. tell us about -- is it called pets for troops? >> pets for troops. we are thrilled to have this program. it enables our active and retired military to have 50% off of our pet adoptions with us. so it's a great match and it's a win-win situation. >> did you have to put the middle one in cargo or were you able to put that with carry-on? >> this is our calm mascot, buddy. he took the flight with us from l.a buddy was very good on the flight. i have no complaints there. but he's been on our facebook page and we've been encouraging everyone to follow him on his day-to-day excursions helping to highlight animals in the shelter, helping with our volunteers, also performing duties at our vet division. he gets an inside look. >> get a dog, you can help the dogs you have. it's a great program. >> if people who are watching would like to go to your web site? >> it's

time for some headlines for you. these guys on the naughty list. a group of men dressed in santa claus suits for saturday's santa con here in new york caught brawling in new york city. no word on what started that fight. but that is not cool. also on the naughty list a kid gives pope francis a surprise during a visit to the vatican's medical center for kids. watch as the little kid snatches the pope's cap right off the top of his head, but the pope doesn't seem to mind. he smiles. eventually he retrieved his headwear and returned it to his proper place. adorable.

brian? >> with franklin roosevelt he had the opportunity to snap a selfy? fox news contributor michael goodwin says wefully a different world now and this picture of president obama is proof. what's the big deaf? welcome back that president obama took the selfy with cameron and this danish prime minister? >> the setting was inappropriate. this is a funeral, for goodness sake. there they were clowning around like frat boys. but for me, the moment captures the larger story, which is this decline of the west and obama and cameron acting like frat boys there. they've been acting like something other than leaders, let's just say, in terms of the world stage. when you see what's going on with the iranian nuclear weapon, you see what's going on with china, extending into the high seas, confronting one of our warships, making our warship take a turn, you have it with russia gobbling up parts of
5:47 am
eastern europe such as ukraine. john mccain there fighting back. you have the saudis attack the united states over iran for abandoning its friends in the middle east. meanwhile, you have obama and cameron gutting our militaries, both theirs and ours and you think back to the special relationship with churchill and roosevelt and hue they really united to save the world from hitler and japan at a time when the world needed it. i ask in the column, would there be that kind of will today if hitler were on the march today? i don't think we would have it. >> it seems like we're more into being liked, which is impossible. tony blair said this, america's biggest problem is they try to be liked. we should be respected. let me tell you something, in the ukraine, the soviet union is reassembling. they're taking belarus. half the ukraine wants to get there. we don't seem to be doing anything. in the big picture, don't you believe this ground was laid
5:48 am
with cameron and president obama when they couldn't get the syrians to go along with the action they proposed? >> that's true. but why couldn't they? my argument is that because they are not leaders. they have not convinced their countries of the national stakes and the international stakes of what is going on in the world. you can draw a red line any time as a chief executive. but if you don't have -- if you haven't prepared the ground for your own countries to defend that red line, if you are not a credible leader, then you have no support. you can't lead without support. so a leader has to gather support. a leader has to be able to lead by virtue of credibility, by virtue of clear principles. right now we have no clear principles in international policies except to retreat from the world, to hole will he out the military -- hollow out the military to pay for a welfare state. the brits are ahead of us in that. we're following that same social democratic course. and without the west, without america, without great britain
