Here's the real irony on the very same day the federal government comes -- with the regulations saying employers can charge your employees.
50% more for smoking 30% more for obesity if they don't you participate in these wellness programs.
-- -- that very same day.
Study funded by the federal government found -- the wellness programs really don't work.
We're back with the panel -- there Charles.

Well this doesn't help the same way that we spent eight billion dollars a year on head start it has no effect after the third.
Grade it doesn't matter if you're -- liberal these ideas are theological.
Wellness and prevention on the way to save money there have been extensive studies have shown that the marriage programs of screening.
They could help individuals but -- to saving money in healthcare it adds immensely under the -- it is not a way to save money here's.
Well I hate to disagree with the doctor on the panel.
But I am I good -- that that you cannot possibly be saying that smoking doesn't contribute to her health care costs -- obesity doesn't have to higher health care costs I don't bash have to pay for that.
I think people -- -- to pay higher premiums for that kind of stuff.
And if they -- if they want paid lower premiums than they can stop smoking or they can lose weight I don't mean this is not a Republican Party is the party of smoking and obesity and use them.
And it says that wellness programs.
And mass group prevention screening.
Had for the cost of health care.
Because I think I think the issue is news is it.
It's one thing for private insurance companies to make up rules about what's gonna who's gonna pay for one it's another for the government to do it how do people feel about that ironically.
In the unfortunate event that somebody who's obese were smoker gets a serious disease.
Healthier people are paying for -- under the affordable.
It's mind when they get a disease wells we know -- -- -- -- -- -- -- is now 'cause of the Affordable Care Act.
He was -- healthier person are going to be paying for -- I already have Port Authority and they'll tend to all of our -- you can vacancy on the list obviously of of things that you shouldn't do.
And we're you know overweight and smokers where -- you see him.
It's the insurance companies who -- you premiums if you smoke.

David let's go win -- first -- -- congressional Republicans at least this week because the latest -- polling shows that the president's taken a bit of a hit because of all the issues he's dealing with.
It means they can continue to investigate these these scandals if you will as they they were going to do anyway and at least.
There's no voter reaction yet yet in terms of overreach.
Loser is -- graves in Minnesota six minute Michelle Bachmann retires he immediately drops out of the race.
He probably would've won and with her out of the race it's a safe Republican seat and I think he recognized that and so much for his congressional career -- and.
The loser is a free press and the winner is government on accountability for the administration being able to hold this off the record briefing which then they.
Some people negotiated into getting sort of some stuff on the record but they -- a lot in these the people who went to this briefing.
Made it so -- the government can continue to do things off the record if they want to have.
-- Lose your FBI apart from all the other incidents there's this strange story there interrogating that I Orlando who's a friend of the ovitz and I have.

Which opens a whole new light of and I was inquiry and the guy shot immediately in the interrogation.
He was not armed the -- saying it was a -- I'm not a conspiracy -- you respond.
This will launch a thousand Jack Ruby conspiracy theories.
Winner Vladimir Putin ended question I sad.
Putin's swindle our secretary of state into believing that a peace conference on -- going to be helpful it will not our side the rebels.
