11:38 pm
fair question but as i said. i'm willing to work for it. >> college football rakes in more than three and a half billion dollars a year. but only 20 schools including michigan, make money on football. the rest need to drain cash from taxpayer answer students to maintain the team. few erwins means fewer dollars that trarns lates to higher tuition or fewer male cheerleersd and nobody wants that. the math is simple. just win jim. >> i can do a lot of push-ups. >> how many? >> in a row? >> yeah. >> 60. >> nice. >> you? >> probably could do 25 in a row. >> want to do them with sne >> no. >> come on that would be great tv. >> you're doing great. knock out 60 right now. >> okay.

11:43 pm
his mom postponed retirement to pay premiums for him. >> i can't eat. when i'm throwing up, she was there when i blacked out in the hallway. she's the world. that's my mom. >> and then the other bomb hit. this one by mail. >> if you can't earn the income for us to give you this subsidy we cannot give you insurance. >> bottom line he can't keep his health without his job and he can't keep his job without >> i'm stuck in a catch 22. >> under the law you have to earn income to qualify for subsidies of affordable care. no income, no affordable care. and your mom's money won't help. >> the premiums are paid, why do you take my healthcare! obamacare figured people with no money should not buy policies. instead they should get state run healthcare for the poofrment which florida governor skon scott supported then refused.
