Good morning -- F Frist.
Obama seeks to -- the big insurers.
President Obama -- -- deal with the insurance industry about how he was going to give them new clients in exchange for them accepting clients they did not want.
Well -- can't get new clients and people can't get on the Internet its Internet.
So the president is -- with executives as CEOs and lobbyists from.
Big health insurance companies today so -- it's going to be okay.
We will get the launch and crashed and we will provide the millions of new customers that we promise.
Civilians as shields Kathleen Sebelius is the former governor of Kansas she is currently the secretary.
And she would not.
I mean with him in quiz tourists from the hill but would however -- -- -- who -- who works for the cable news network.
She told him that the president didn't know.
That the launch was going to be naked -- mess.
But in fact that he found out along with the American people.
She said that if they would have had two more years.
-- more years instead of the three years that they had to prepare for launch it wouldn't have been as Stuckey.
Joining -- Number three shut down her -- but not GOP candidate.
So if you were Republican in Virginia the bad news is your candidate is still losing by pretty much the same margin as before.
If -- Republican anywhere in America the good news is is that the Republican candidate in Virginia is losing by about the same margin as before no state in the country arguably would feel more facts from the partial federal -- in the commonwealth of Virginia.
You couldn't get university poll that you see there demonstrates that -- -- -- who Democrats targeted is being pro shut down -- Didn't seem to suffer any real result even as Virginians that -- was very bad.
Four as one little power plays -- calls it playing Virginia.
Puff -- pass -- -- -- give depending on your preferred nomenclature.
New Gallup survey shows a seismic shift.
And American attitudes about legalizing marijuana 58% of respondents said that recreational use of Canada should be legal.
That's ten point -- from when the question was asked last year and marks the first time a clear majority they showed support for such a measure of support among Democrats 65%.
Less -- And independents -- -- jump.
Twelve points for the -- okay last and definitely not least it's a royal rumble in red.
Fall classic the World Series begins tonight in.
And it is a match -- of two of the original two of the first sixteen teams in professional baseball.
-- the vaunted and storied St.
And these somewhat confident story Boston Red Sox it should be one -- -- the ages.
And lots of great history and if you wanted to cheat -- to get it caught on back.
As well what happens as well as I understand New -- -- -- through the problem is probably greatest hitters.
In the game's history.
But if you get caught on that as well -- maybe the day in politics -- sign up for Fox News first it's awesome.
It's free we -- provided for you it's totally fine.
So good about his politics are common sign up but we're gonna do it all right now this is our life.
We won't be able to reach everyone who deserves the safety and security of -- formal health insurance.
Fortunately that's what you do best organized.
So I'm asking you to help tell your friends.
Families coworkers classmates neighbors and anyone else about what the Affordable Care Act can mean for them.
And that was -- fund raising pitch from President Obama to his supporters through his permanent political committee organizing for action.
Action action and this is power play.
The president they're raising money -- seeking support.
From his back first.
As there are problems.
Democrats -- glitches.
Republicans call them giant yet he's size disasters of doom.
But whatever it is this is not the -- anybody wanted.
For the president's -- on what about that we have I'm super excited about this.
-- presented at this strength certainly is a columnist for The Washington Times you know him and you also know our friend Juan Williams he is an.
Political analyst for the Fox News Channel he's a columnist at the -- sure that also happens but he is also.
The widely read and circulated foxes are confident about his liking them thank -- It takes wanted to I'm -- -- -- takes longer to introduce want.
Did not I'm just -- that edit it and every now and come on I gotta get this this is the same triggered by.
Why don't we can do more likely you -- -- we have played people like I don't.
I don't think -- -- at this stuff he says he just people just at a they've had so quick fix up Alia you -- to put on somebody that's worse and oh okay well we'll keep looking into that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now Charleston there's much that could be -- excellent about Charles there -- little that excellent thing can be said about the way the president's website launched.
So it appears that that.
The president didn't want to days is the president reassuring sort of a base.
-- the team together Democrats are getting briefed they're sending an HHS represented to brief house Democrats.
We'll talk to one of them later to say look.
This isn't what we wanted.
But we have a plan to fix it and it's going to be okay in the president's going to counsel with the insurance industry and say this isn't what we wanted but it's going to be able and we have a plan to get it.
Yeah just kind of tragic -- that they reached this evening I mean.
It's forty days out so I understand -- three weeks and six months roll out let's not previously visited -- judgment but it gets off to a bad start times of the technology for sure now the fact is that this is highly political and I suspect that's why we're discussing -- power play.
Because they're people we don't develop their policy.
They get there as people know I think that much of the Republican Party has said this is the one.
Issues that you have by this weekend -- you know bombing here and -- -- -- -- -- The Obama people on the other hand and the Democrats are anxious to.
-- -- because they think hey wait -- second.
We are now playing into exactly the expectation that Republicans ahead for -- here following the essence.
Charles hurt I read -- column by you.
-- on this topic we please -- enough.
Did you hit it.
It's been fascinating.
The last 24 hours Washington the White House and instabilities but -- believes was on CNN last night.
Not based on him and -- -- -- you're good.
And there and try to get covered the president and you know that's what she's supposed to do.
But behind the scenes and of course the White House all too happy to serve yeah it is her ball that's all he had left I don't know reminder.
But behind this is that this fight thing going on and in the New York Times did today there's -- -- Where you have you someone familiar with -- who is thinking very generous and that there that her husband.
And you don't.
-- live their -- and that it has been the person.
I'm pretty sure to be -- the -- could beat me that she told to go tell CNN -- -- -- -- yeah -- but are they really familiar with him anyway whatever.
-- case is that is that there are you running this this all background campaigns say I don't White House thought that we we.
-- stuff over here we have nothing to do with computers and that was all right.
Out of the White House and -- so you've got this really nasty.
-- -- going on that you from my perspective is.
You know highly entertaining.
But -- not good for.
And not good for -- the future loan from the president's point is that this is more than a web site.
Yeah and we hope we're right.
-- is more than he says it's more than a website and says this is basically what he's saying is this is of the first time.
That and that middle class Americans can get subsidies to buy health insurance that that they can get taxpayer subsidies to buy health insurance.
And that that still there and that that's still available.
The I guess what I would think though is if I went to the carnival.
And -- till the world had a broken gate and the guy was.
We've we've you know sort of hunched over.
Leaning on the side that was telling me to get not I would say -- probably not gonna ride right I mean these outward appearances matter.
Well they -- and especially the idea that given that you eat healthy you -- -- here especially helped the young males.
To come onboard a different way than anything their interest to have health insurance now.
Their lives and people who don't have health insurance because it's too costly who in fact I'm going to look -- actually at this market is I think they'll look back.
There's people on the -- you think -- more.
I can think of -- right here and he.
Ever gonna happen maybe.
Well guys -- -- mrs.
-- is hoping quite the contrary she's got plans for a good closing decade issue.
Yeah it's a battle of -- All American and refusing to go to guy anyway but they -- For that reason is that what you said it exactly right it is appearances.
You might think it's just technology.
Let us in terms of appearance -- -- -- I'll be eighty.
The machine -- criticism that's coming from the right Brian do you think about the fact that.
You know there are.
Political players on -- we're putting money said he people out to try to put -- -- you have a 36 good Republican governors -- -- -- -- -- now.
Would say we're not going it settle these exit -- you federal government in the air war your computer system and -- breakdown right all the words right.
Well and and of course -- if -- one of these governors in one of these states expecting.
And I am so glad it is not my website it just turned into smoking ruin his I am so glad that it is that the federal one.
-- going to give you the last word and then I want aspirin well I'm gonna ask you -- and then I -- ask you Charlie to close.
We we've talked about Eric Holder of these terms.
Some say that she is headed for the -- I -- administration doesn't ever get rid of anybody so I think athletes various -- there.
Through at least through this year what do you think.
Actually I thought somebody yesterday who would have some that's and they said that the western -- -- civilians pretty good.
They they think that on terms of the health care policy in terms of being the stalwart standing up for the fight and that's why they think they have no harm her after the she is at the Internet though he did she is -- yeah I don't think that they're gonna do anything whether partly because she is -- -- sucking up.
All of -- bill will right now where it didn't seem yeah but but is it if they ever heard they had to replace my.
Yeah try to get information and it's yeah.
Charlie -- -- -- synthesize all of us we thank you.
Throughout the -- Charles we thank you want we certainly thank my pleasure -- just like we came back in the building and now we can have even more awesome guest about that.
Our Internet we're gonna take a quick break but when we come back more -- -- roles on the as we talk about.
We're reading tea leaves and the government shutdown how big but it wasn't politically we -- pulling down that suggested it was kind of a deal.
But anyway we'll talk about that when we come back -- stick around.
And Obama's ideas are deeply flawed in the implementation of this law has been a national embarrassment.
Let me be playing the law that carries the president's name is the hallmark of a reckless federal government that has lost its way.
That was Kenneth.
You know it the -- to his friends he is running for governor of Virginia is the attorney general of the -- and he was they -- delivering.
National what we used called radio address that we call us whatever.
To President Obama.
This is apparently -- -- -- is losing.
That is -- pretty undeniable polls across the border of Washington Post poll even indicated that he's losing coal country.
-- Terry McAuliffe democratic nominee is essentially promised to exploded.
-- ruin the economy they're like we're still kind of undecided.
So it's not going great for the Republicans in Virginia this year OK okay.
By it is a laboratory for real time political activity in its -- today.
People who understand the mad scientist for laboratories just such as these -- lives shattered and she is president of the aptly named Saturday group.
She is a Texas Democrat.
And she loves America -- list.
-- also loves America.
And he loves America act over the strategy of spreading where they will bring you safely into harbor right -- -- strategies he is decent success right exactly it's cool man.
-- is his former political director at the bush White House.
He is an important Republican person you should -- from the things that he had to say that he has won races and stuff.
-- -- The quinnipiac poll and we put a lot of stock with a lot of free quinnipiac poll here they -- a good job.
And by the way we have new Fox -- for coming tonight you'll -- but the quinnipiac poll basically says this.
The government shutdown which everybody in Virginia politics said here comes trouble for canned -- -- -- Who finale did everything but sleep probably Ted Cruz at an event where they were both scheduled today the -- was going to -- this disaster.
We would get over it.
And did not touch the race even though a large number of Virginians and you know this they'll wait and intrigue going on in Virginia.
Virginians set it was a big deal they are Republicans are more -- but it didn't affect this race list.
He's really interesting but you're -- -- here's where I do think that shut down.
Actually did affect this race that I'm not calling the people of Virginia liars in this -- what I'm saying is.
I think that it's solidify.
My -- sleek.
I think when they did is sort of -- -- -- by people who were very -- saying.
I don't really know I really like you know one of these guys I'm not really sure what -- do his mistress was 4545.
And all of a sudden the -- started to pull away and that he was a little -- yeah -- was still aren't -- Now a solid 78910.
And what I think is happening is that while they shut down I don't think cost that I think it is solidify that -- -- might be.
Mess up your Virginia Republican she's not calling you a liar and saying you're deceiving yourself yeah I just say.
Is that this race.
Can't be generally well liked very much we -- he has got his base intact and the reason why something like that shut -- didn't have a bigger impact square.
Sadly he hasn't grown much beyond.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Think that Republicans always do better or more more people turn out but it was over after this.
I don't think we are very close yeah.
In this case I'll be there is a real turn that question -- his hope is to have very low turnout.
-- his hardcore supporters go to -- on this is from Texas and so maybe she isn't quite switched allegiance to Virginia but I don't care Terry McCullough.
Is not every Democrats -- -- TC on -- independence county and all these polls show that they're still split amongst independents which gives consumers and it's -- -- that -- In this poll basically.
Good the possibility for an ethically low turnout is is present.
As you have.
Grossed out voters and you actually start to see some trends.
That look a little bit like you saw in Virginia in 2012.
In terms of voter attitudes about what's on offer.
And there was there's not a lot of enthusiasm -- Wednesday -- the difference is this is an off.
Off year election which changes the composition.
Any any given Republican is more likely to vote in any given Democrat that she's been true in this country for a hundred years but.
In Virginia when you're an off off year a lot of people don't even know despite.
Good being bombarded on with ads now for many months many Virginians may not know that there's even -- -- going around.
That's very true and actually while I am a native Texan I've lived in Virginia for nearly fifteen years or so it isn't cut my home away from college player -- He voted in this election absentee because I'm not gonna be here on Election Day so this might but I think he got several points going are you going to be -- -- helping them.
Beat him wherein concert and I think that it's -- lives.
But I I think your -- -- and a number one.
I think you're absolutely right when it was startling statistics.
-- -- about Virginia State like politics.
Step up -- do not turn out -- in 2008 and 2012 statewide in the state of Virginia.
-- 71% as the you know putting it on average in these gubernatorial election visit to doesn't want to -- -- -- 2940%.
Right you get 30%.
Drop off -- Yeah and this -- is not likely -- even hit that 40%.
Yeah I think -- -- -- totally agree which.
Generally does favor Republicans not just in Virginia but also in Virginia where I think is really interesting about what's happening right now is.
There are shots at a moderate.
To lean Republican voters who are not voting for kids now they're now.
-- -- -- Jerry -- starts but let's let's let -- -- work.
The concern is that this shut down the sixty day federal or -- government shut them.
And there's been a lot of knee knocking you can hear -- knocking even still about this is going to stay with us and be toxic.
Can there be some encouragement -- from -- party that it's like well.
Maybe not yeah.
Cross the borders first polls are concerned Christian at all -- on the set now.
They also that it rubbed off more poorly on Republicans -- hurt them more but it's not dramatic the bigger problem to -- daily basis.
Why is he running and what is he going to do.
If you remember past Republicans that one of these circumstances and Virginia it was always something it was the car -- and -- and -- -- -- -- What was the bumper sticker thing -- we're gonna do I.
I don't know what it is in this race remain at four man who's been in politics -- so boldly for policies I don't seat and it looks very Vanilla and you can't just be against something.
Got to be worth something and I when I want to go protest here early I had to tell them will power play that was with me.
That it was he started asking about the race and I said.
It gets complicated in American politics and business but guys you guys -- a lot simpler when -- -- -- is we thank you very much.
Sorry did everything quick break -- when we come back congressman Henry -- they are one of your friends.
Would join us to talk about what Democrats are hearing from the administration today about fixing the health watch.
-- about the chances for a piecemeal approach to immigration reform talk about that when we come back.
Address your question HHS.
I don't have that information I don't you know -- and and this is an operation -- run by HHS.
Those were true of the dozen times that white house Press Secretary Jay Carney.
Yesterday referred reporters.
Two the Department of Health and Human Services with questions about the launch of the president's health care.
Entitlement program and this is power play well the folks at HHS -- no -- getting a lot of calls from the press but they're making -- call.
Today on house Democrats congressional Democrats.
To brief them on what went wrong with the launch how it's being fixed etc.
one of the folks that there are into this Henry -- are.
One of your friends Internet.
Congressman Cuellar represents.
A border district of Texas.
There on the streets of the -- side congressman.
Hey Chris how are -- -- we're well are you well.
-- do very well I do miss the streets of Laredo.
Every time you're coming on the show my comment to myself a little bit.
That's so this is so the question is.
-- -- I'm sure are among those who are concerned.
About the way that this launch went.
The briefing and you've been briefed yet by the administration on the rollout where is that later today.
Not that that was this morning but look you know we do have a problem we do know that -- website is not work in the way it is we do got to get it fix.
But I one of those that you know the -- -- one way to get the information out.
In my area in the southern harvest that of Texas they are the person to person does that telephone.
The website is certainly one way but certainly the person to person.
Tied because the demographics that we have an area.
That we used other types of mediums to get people interested get -- -- grow.
And get a -- signed up as soon as we -- Well.
What is what you heard this morning reassuring to you this problem will be best.
But we don't -- no it's not going to be fixed tomorrow anytime you deal with the website.
That's going to be looking at millions of individuals and the -- got rolled out is not.
The right way and I do have concerns that they should have been ready for this we knew the we knew about this a long time ago -- -- and I've been way to.
To the very end but anything else you know there's different ways that we can approach this -- and say let's go ahead and and and fix it.
-- -- some people there saying delay the whole thing I don't agree with that but I'm one of those that feel that just like we do see ours here with the -- federal budget.
That maybe we got to do OCR and the roving period and just continue it and give it extra time as we are worked out -- -- blitzes.
Delay and delay the mandate part of -- the penalty for not having purchased insurance.
That's currently set to kick in for those who don't -- about -- 31 of march you your -- delay that a little bit.
Yeah and let's go ahead delay just the way we do see -- -- the budget let's delay.
The enrollment -- we can give people the extra time again.
The wet side is one medium.
In my part of the our country and and in the southern part of Texas.
It's a telephone it's a person a person.
Type of mediums that we have a look at the website is certainly one of them.
I know it's one of the ways that we trying to reach the goal -- to -- the administration is trying to reach your goal -- not enrollment but again.
Just like we do with any videos let's go ahead and delay the enrollment period -- -- -- extra time so people will have extra time to sign up well.
We'll be in shape to see how that goes there will be interesting also to see how it goes win and congress gets back in session.
Well I guess you guys are in session now that everybody would everybody gets back he -- to work.
One of the things on the docket is going to be -- great when you've recently written.
And I'll bet on the topic calling -- it's time to go.
We are hearing from Republicans.
Not quite that same urgency but -- willingness to proceed we heard Marco Rubio won the authors of the bipartisan plan in the senate say it's time for the house to move forward with piecemeal approach.
You can't do it all wants do one bite at a time when you think -- that.
What I -- prefer to have comprehensive immigration reform but under the practical environment that we have.
If we do part of that.
I can support that even though I do support -- my preference is to have.
Comprehensive and comprehensive immigration reform.
The Republican leadership has said that they want to do piecemeal.
So let's look at the different pieces.
And see how far we can get and then there's always the next window of opportunity as you know the next window of opportunity we don't do it this year.
The 2014 elections will come in 2016 presidential elections will command the next window of opportunity will be 27 team but I wanna keep pushing it.
To the very end we know that it's dead and somebody has -- -- the the song and then we can go ahead and and look at the next window of opportunity.
Congressman who's been with the World Series.
Wow what's the Texas Rangers will be there.
We know your record with the head who don't know what's your fifth -- the cardinals or reds up.
Probably the cardinals.
Probably the cardinals probably right.
They've kept it there congressman.
Will be there is no doubt about that we are grateful that you made congress today have a wonderful day thanks for stopping -- Thank you so much it's okay Internet -- if you missed out by.
It's always fun it's always good to see here.
And there's nothing up next except for this came word.
From our friendships.
They see this relationship with the United States in Iran opened up.
The first direct negotiations.
Clearly what they -- -- -- US heading for a kind of a detente.
Which will give to the regime in Iran the legitimacy.
And that for the saudis.
Seeing your audience -- in their mortal enemy.
It has to make them wonder what kind of friend that is United States and cam day.
The American friendship.
