tv   State of the Union With Jake Tapper  CNN  January 21, 2018 6:00am-7:00am PST

6:00 am
to have a partner that is so skilled at what they do is indispensable, and i couldn't ask for a better partner. shutdown showdown. tension on capitol hill following the government shutdown. >> this is utter madness. and the blame game heats up. republicans calling out democrats. >> irresponsible, political gains. >> that's why we call it the schumer shultdown. >> democrats pointing the finger at president trump. >> no one who deserves the blame more than president trump. >> how much longer will this go on? motorcycle mull vanni is here next. >> and dealing with the d.r.e.a.m.ers. >> democrats aren't budging.
6:01 am
>> they're using the d.r.e.a.m.ers as a shield for their incompetence. >> but republicans say not now. they want a deal on immigration. it is a shakedown strategy. >> will the daca debate keep the government closed? >> senators bernie sanders and rand paul respond in minutes. hello, i'm jake tapper in washington with the state of our union is still shutdown with sides not even talking. it's the second full day of the government shutdown right now and according to sources mitch mcconnell and chuck schumer did not speak all day saturday despite both spending the day on capitol hill. in an interview with cnn late saturday, schumer said he would not support a three week extension of government spending and outlined his demands to reopen the government. >> we need a good bipartisan agreement that allows us to get a good defense number, get a
6:02 am
good nondefense number, get a vote on the d.r.e.a.m.ers bill and get that done and deal with the disasters too. >> now senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says he won't negotiate on issues until the government is funded and open and he plans to hold a vote on a three week government funding bill at 1:00 a.m. monday if both sides cannot come to an agreement earlier than that. >> we're ready to vote again. all the country needs is for the democratic leader to withdraw his filibuster and let a bipartisan majority pass this bill and reopen, reopen the united states government. >> president trump spent saturday the first anniversary of his presidency in washington after canceling a planned trip to mar-a-lago for a fund raiser. the coauthor of the art of the deal made calls from the oval office. the president did not reach out to him said schumer.
6:03 am
let's go right to someone mick mulvaney. always good to see you. let me get your response immediately. president trump just tweeted that the senate majority leader should change the senate rules to only get 51 votes instead of 60. the stalemate continues, republicans should go to 51% nuclear option and vote on real, long-term budget. is this the official white house position now that mitch mcconnell should get rid of the 60 vote. >> thanks for having me. we've been critical of that 60 vote rule since the president took office. he tried to shed some light on the fact if ordinary rules prevail the government would be open as of today. it also responds to this constant criticism we hear of oh, you republicans control the white house and the house and senate why can't you just funds the government and the answer is as you've just laid out it takes
6:04 am
80 votes in the senate. we cannot open the government without senate the democrat support. we don't have that which is why we are where we are and one way around it would be to change the 50 vote. another way would be some of those democrats who say they want to work in a bipartisan fashion and work with republicans but don't. where are those democrats that say one thing back home and do something different in washington. >> i think five democrats, five senate democrats voted for the continuing resolution and five republicans voted against it. this requires some negotiation. according to a source close to the negotiations minority leader schumer stated this publicly, he wants a commitment from republicans in the senate and the house that after the government reopens, they'll abe vote on one big bill that will lift the caps on defense spending and nondefense spending and authorize more money for disaster relief, authorize about $20 billion for the border wall and provide some sort of path to legal status for the so-called
6:05 am
d.r.e.a.m.ers. now i've heard that this is more of an issue in the house than the senate but that seems to be an area where a deal could be done, no? >> a couple different things. the president is absolutely interested and wants to get daca fixed but what with you've just read really bears a close read which is what the senate minority leader said was to authorize $20 billion. i know it's getting real deep down in the weeds. you can authorize left and right but it's appropriating. he wants to authorize the wall to be built but doesn't want to spend the money to get it built. there was money authorized in 2006 that mr. schumer voted for for a wall that still hasn't been built because that money hasn't been spent. also on that list of things that we've seen from the democrats in just the last 24 hours is a bailout for the union pension funds. there's a long way to getting a larger deal which is why it's so important to go and open the government now. what the democrats are talking about is a very complex, very large, actually a massive spending bill with a lot of
6:06 am
other things added to it. that's not going to get done between now and tomorrow morning and now and next friday so the government needs to be open. they need to vote to open the government tonight or tomorrow and then we can start talking about those bigger issues. >> you made it clear you think the democrats are responsible for the shutdown. take a listen to something that then private citizen trump said about the government shutdown that occurred back this 2013. >> start from the top and have to get solved from the top and the president's the leader and he's got to get everybody in a room and he's got to lead. in 25 years and 50 years and 100 years from now, when the government -- they talk about the government shutdown, they're going to be talking about the president of the united states. who was the president of the united states at that time? they're not going to be talking who the head of the house was, the head of the senate. >> the president has not called, quote, everybody in a room and led since the shutdown happened as he called president obama to do. he did put out some pictures,
6:07 am
the white house did of the president yesterday attempting to talk on the phone with individuals. why not call everybody into a room and hash this out the way he said leaders do, the way he said presidents do? >> jake, again, you're splitting hairs there. the president actually did call large groups of both parties down into the white house in the days leading up to the shutdown. he has been actively engaged. he is trying to avert the shutdown. that's what i think is different between the shutdown, the lapse in appropriations if you will which is the technical term that you see today and the one you had under president obama. president obama did not engage in that process. i know. i was there. i was in the precursor of the house freedom caucus in 2013 and we never heard from the white house. we actually believed they wanted a shutdown. that's the difference here. president obama wanted a shutdown so that he could weaponize it and make political points out of it which is exactly what he did. we don't want the shutdown and we're actively working to try number one, to make sure it didn't happen in the first place. that failed and we're actively
6:08 am
working right now to make sure it doesn't last any longer than it absolutely has to. that's the big difference in 2013 and 2016. you have a president doing now exactly what citizen trump said he would do in 2013 if he were in charge. >> he hasn't called everybody into a room. did he have that 55 minute meeting on immigration. >> but he said -- >> he wanted a bipartisan bill and he brought him one and he said he would take the heat and suggested he didn't want to take the heat. >> let's be clear what bill is there right now. the bill that's passed the house and senate is a bipartisan bill. this is the type of funding bill that has passed for the last decade. it's a bill that has a funding component for the government and it's a bill that has things that members of both parties say that they like. it's a bill that has the extension for the children's health insurance program. the delay to the various obamacare taxes including the cadillac tax that the democrats want late.
6:09 am
tase bipartis it's a bipartisan bill. that's what's different here. i had no idea that the democrats and the senate were this dysfunctional. i know washington is dysfunctional. i had no idea it had gotten that bad with democrats in the senate. >> director mulvaney, you used to be congressman mulvaney and you're not going to get out of here without one more clip since 2013. take a listen to yourself when you were a congressman supporting the 2013 government shout z-oun. >> john boehner said yesterday we fought the good fight but we just didn't win. was the fight worth it? >> it was. any time you fight for something you really believe in and important, the fight is going to be worth it. if you stand up for what you believe in, i think you'll always end up on the right side of things. >> aren't the democrats doing just that? >> not really. and here's the difference. you're absolutely right. i was stuck in the middle of that 2013 shutdown. keep in mind what that was. we were voting against a bill we did not like, the 2013 bill, of having the chip component back in 2013, the bill that we were asked to vote for funded
6:10 am
obamacare. we didn't like that. we couldn't support that. we could not in good conscious vote for that. fast-forward to today. everything that is in the bill democrats support and have voted for previously. this is pure politics. back in 2013 it had a much larger component of a principal involved to it. if you vote against a bill that you like, that's an entirely thing than voting against a bill you don't like. >> we'll have to leave it there. thank you so much for your time there and good luck with this mess. >> thanks, jake. i appreciate you having me. president trump is pointing fingers at democrats for the government shutdown but some members of his own party voted against the government funding bill too. one of those no votes is senator paul next. senator bernie sanders is here too. he's ahead. stay with us. at don't have a l. finally, it was like the sun rose again and i was going to start

6:15 am
house are blaming democrats but senator graham is one of a handful who also voted against the short-term funding bill. another one of those republican no votes, senator rand paul of kentucky joins me now. senator paul we're so glad you're on amend. welcome back. so good to see you. you say it's because you don't like the short-term spending bills that are called continuing resolutions as opposed to a long-term budget plan. you think it adds too much to the deficit plan. your party's leadership is quick to blame the democrats the. but there weren't enough votes to pass this among republicans. >> i think the blame game is ridiculous on both sides. republicans and democrats and everybody trying to say you don't want to fund the military. everybody wants to fund the military. nobody wants our soldiers not to be paid but when both sides do it, i think the american people see through it. it's gamesmanship gamesmanship & partisanship. i gave them the answer how you solve this today. promise guarantee in writing to
6:16 am
the democrats that there will be one week's debate on immigration and a vote on an immigration bill some time in the next month. in the house and the senate, now when i presented this to those in the senate, senator durbin they were like oh, no we want guarantee passionage on a must pass bill. nobody gets a guaranteed passage. what about a guaranteed week, open amendments. i got to present amendments. everybody does which rarely ever happens. do the same thing on the house side. you'll get two different bills, go to conference, work out our difference and there could be an immigration bill that comes forward in the next month. i think that's very doable. the reason it's hard on the spending bill is we don't all agree on what the fix is to an immigration and rather than try to work out a deal in advance, put it on the floor and let the deal work itself out as the legislation comes to a conclusion. >> one of the confusions as you know is what will president trump be willing to sign. >> he'll sign whatever comes out. you saw him saying -- remember that meeting where he says, you work it out and i'll sign it. >> the next week, dur bin and
6:17 am
graham came forward and said here's a bipartisan bill and he said no. >> those people with the bipartisan bill and i'm for some aspects of that. i am for some middle ground. the people with that bill they want that bill. i want an open process so where we vote on these things but i guarantee you, if you send to the president and immigration bill that passes the house and senate, there's no way in the world he's vetoing that. >> you have good relationships with the people in the house. is ryan willing to do that? they've been reluctant to bring that up because they don't want a bill that passes with some republicans support and a lot of democratic support. >> that's the difficulty but there is a bill over that that raul labrador and goodlatte have, if they start with that, they'll have the nucleus of that bill. i don't know. i think the process needs to be allowed to work out. i'm a believer in we were all elected, let's vote on issues and vote on amendments to issues
6:18 am
and i won't win all the time, the democrats won't win all the time but something will come out and the things is, is the daca issue has been held hostage to people on the left who want their perfect immigration bill or nothing and people on the right who want nothing. and so really, i'd say let's vote on it. put it forward and vote on it. the impasse could end today if republicans would promise just to have a week of immigration votes, have a conclusion, let us all put forward amendments. the american people would like to see us hash out our differences through amendments and votes. >> i know people on the right of your party are reluctant to support anything that provides any sort of legal status for anybody in this country illegally including the d.r.e.a.m.ers who were brought here at children and people on the left reluctant to fund the border wall. would you theoretically be willing to support something that has the border wall money you support and also a path to legal status for the
6:19 am
d.r.e.a.m.ers. >> it has to be a compromise like that. i'm a fiscal conservative. i'm not for spending $40 billion on a wall. $21 million a mile is outrageous. i am for some form of law for trying to have more merit based immigration and also for having the chain migration be more nuclear family and not the extended family. there are those reforms that could come forward and i think it's eminently doable and where you find the middle ground is you vote. you vote on the amendments and whichever amendments have the most votes get put into the bill and there will be a difference. the house will be much more conservative than the senate and i think something will pass the senate. the senate passed the immigration the gang of 8 people a couple years ago. >> the house wouldn't even take it up. >> the deal needs to be -- and this is what i think schumer should ask for is i want the house and the senate to have one week on immigration and a vote some time before the deadline march 5th. that's a reasonable ask and something we could do. >> i know you want to talk about
6:20 am
the reauthorization of fisa which is the nsa's surveillance program. it gives broad powers to intelligence services to conduct surveillance not only on foreign nationals but american citizens. the president tweeted on friday, just signed 702 bill to authorize foreign intelligence collection. this is not the same fisa law that was abused during the election. i will always do what's right for the country and put the safety of american people first. >> i think the intelligence community and their apologist which are speaker ryan and mcconnell they want to give enormous power to the intelligence communities and i think there's too much power. this program is supposed to let us spy on foreigners in foreign lands when a foreigner talks to an american they get caught up in the database. if the president calls a foreign leader he's in the database. if i call a foreign leader i'm in the database. if you're a businessman or woman and you call foreigners you may be in the database.
6:21 am
if you're a journalist and you send an e-mail and you type in the words al baghdadi and you type that in, you're in the database. we have this enormous database. your name can be typed in or my name without a warrant. keep the program but get a warrant if you want to search an american's name and this i think the vast majority of americans would support if they knew the issue. >> so you're the president's not correct in his characterization. >> i think the president -- his instincts lean in my direction because he feels there's abuse. i feel paul ryan and said we fixed all these problems and it isn't about americans. it's absolutely untrue. to the people like peter strzok who turn out to be very biassed, they have the ability to look at the 702 section. people with that degree of bias need someone looking over their shoulder saying, because you're so biassed against the president
6:22 am
you shouldn't be allowed to search this without asking a judge's permission. >> thank you so much. keep up the good health and the mending we appreciate it. the trump campaign out way shocking new web ad today. >> democrats who stand in our way will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrant. >> you heard that right. democrat will be complicit in every murder committed by illegals. bernie sanders is here. i'm pretty sure he has strong feelings on that he'll talk to us next. feel that tingle of a cold sore coming on? only abreva can heal it in as little as two and a half days when used at the first sign. abreva starts to work immediately to block the virus and protect healthy cells. abreva acts on it. so you can too.

listen to what the military, what the department of defense said just the other day. in terms of the fact that we have not had a budget for the entire year. we are a $4 trillion government. we do not an annual budget. this is from the pentagon. we have been working under a continuing resolution for three years now. our current c.r. expires tomorrow january 19th. this is wasteful and destructive. we need a fully funded fiscal year 2018 budget or face ramifications for our military. end of quote. this is the military. they cannot continue to go month by month.
6:30 am
i represent the state, jake, where 25% of our people get their primary health care and dental care through community health centers. they have not been funded in three and a half months. 10,000 people died last year because the social security administration is not adequately funded and able to process claims. >> what do you mean? >> people who have disabilities, "the washington post" story put their claims in and while they're waiting for their claims to be processed much too slowly they died. >> that doesn't necessarily mean that the correlation is not causation. >> the correlation is that the social security administration is grossly underfunded and understaffed, can't do the work they are assigned to do. >> in the white house briefing friday, director mulvaney quoted you criticizing republicans shutting down the government because they didn't get their way in a policy debate in 2013. take a listen to what you said
6:31 am
was the republican mindset back in 2013. this is you. >> what they are saying to the american people tonight is, well maybe we lost the presidential election, maybe we lost seats in the senate and seats in the house, it doesn't matter. we can now bring the government to a shutdown, throw some 800,000 hard working americans out on the street and we are going to get our way no matter what. >> so mulvaney is saying you're a hypocrite. you're blaming the republicans back in 2013 for what the democrats and those who caucused with the democrats are doing today. you don't get your way and you're shutting down the government. >> first of all, what they were doing back then is they wanted to repeal obamacare. obama was the president. he was not going to repeal obamacare and throw tens of millions of people -- allow tens
6:32 am
of millions of people to lose the health insurance. let's be clear and i know people are sick and tired of the blame game and i understand that. but here is the reality. it takes 60 votes in the united states senate to get anything done. the other night mitch mcconnell walked on to the floor of the senate and he knows the rules better than anybody, he did not have 60 votes. he barely had 50 votes. when you're in that situation, jake, what it requires and what we should be doing is negotiating. he doesn't have the votes that he needs. let's sit down and talk and, by the way, we can move very, very rapidly. what i want to assure the american people, there's a lot more agreement on the stuff than people think. for example, we need to adequately fund the department of defense and obviously nondefense spending. we need to deal after four months with the fact that we have not yet done disaster relief. there are tens of thousands of people in puerto rico, people are in houston, texas, who are still hurting from those
6:33 am
hurricanes. how come the republicans were so quick to move forward to try to provide huge tax breaks for billionaires, they addressed that issue in their tax bill. health care they wanted to repeal affordable health care. why can't they provide disaster relief for the states and territories that need it? >> on the immigration issue, would you be willing to vote for $20 billion in appropriations to build a border wall in exchange for a pathway to some sort of legal status for the d.r.e.a.m.ers? is that a compromise you're willing to make? >> it's something -- i think the wall was a great idea in the 15th century when the chinese built the great china wall. i don't think it makes a whole lot of sense now but i'm willing to sit down in a room and do what the american people want and what the american people want is to provide legal status to the d.r.e.a.m.ers and a path
6:34 am
toward citizenship. let's sit down and do that. that has to be passed. let me say this. if we allow trump to get away with what he did and that is repeal the executive order on dacas and if these 800,000 people, young people are subjected to deportation, this will be one of the ugliest stains in the history of the united states. young people who know no other country than this country, who came here two or three years of age to now be subjected to deportation would be a stain that this country would never recover from. >> thank you so much for being here. we appreciate it. >> thank you. senator minor leader chuck schumer says he will not vote to reopen the government unless his terms are met. we'll play that next. plus president trump is on a diet according to his doctor but can he give up the hamburgers. that's this week's state of the cartoonian. stay with us.

it was a hardline saying, unlesspy get my way i'm going to shut the government down, i'm going to risk default for the nation. now anyone can do that. i believe in immigration reform. what if i persuaded by caucus to shut the government down, i'm not going to pay our bills unless i get our way. it's a politics of i had i don'tsy and confrontation and paralysis. that was senator chuck schumer talking to me in 2013. it's a little thing we called the lead and it's a slightly different message that what we're hearing from him today. congresswoman, so you're a fresh person. a fresh woman so i can't hold you responsible for your positions in 2013, but the democratic position in 2013 was you can't hold the government hostage to issues whether it's obamacare or immigration and now we have the democrats taking the
6:40 am
exact opposite position. >> i don't think so. i think you have a lot going on here. the democrats don't want the shutdown. the democrats want a deal to be made. we want issues to be addressed. i came to congress to get things done, to vote on issues, to have debates. that's what the american people want. they don't want a shutdown. we really need the parties right now to come together and talk about some of these issues that they've been saying they're going to address and they haven't whether it is daca, immigration or whether it is a c.r. getting a full year budget. this is no way to run a government. >> senator? >> i couldn't agree with chuck schumer more than i have probably ever in my life. >> 13 chuck schumer. >> 2013 chuck schumer. he's right. he's right then. i've never been for government shutdowns for the first one. i went through the 1995 government shutdown and learned my lesson. this doesn't make any sense. it's gamesmanship and every time republicans have tried to do this, tried to get something in exchange for a funding, we've
6:41 am
ended up on the short end of the stick because the american public figured out that our responsibility is to keep the trains running here. if you have problems, work them out but keep things moving. this time the democrats have actually stepped in. this is the democrats now saying, we won't vote for something unless -- in the past every government shutdown was republicans wanting something in exchange for funding the government. this time it's the democrats and that's the loser. >> we need to add some intellectual honesty to the conversation. in 2013 the republicans and rand paul and ted cruz were holding out hope that you could defund obamacare something that wasn't popular, something that they haven't been able to do with the majority. here democrats are asking for something that nearly 90% of the american public want to happen and the simple fact is, the reason we're here is because republicans in control didn't reauthorize chip. republicans in control are the reason that we have daca uncertainty and republicans in control for the first time in modern history in control of the house, senate and white house cannot seem to keep government

running so that's why we're here. it doesn't have anything to do with 2013 or chuck schumer. this is falls square on the shoulder of the president of the united states. >> one of the reasons we have daca uncertainty is because president obama provided unilateral temporary amnesty to this population with no consent from congress and i'd be the one person at the table to speak in favor of shutdowns. if it is something you truly believe in is necessary and you're willing to make the case. i don't see the democrats saying straight up, shutting down the government is worth a temporary protection for 690,000 people. that's the case they're making. they rejected a six year deal on chip in order to get some shred of a promise on daca. they've packed themselves into a corner. they don't have a road map of where they're going and president trump for once i think is exercising somewhat -- some message discipline. he's in the cat bird seat. republicans, they are in stronger higher ground. president trump should say, yes, come to me with a deal or we're
6:43 am
going to standoff because i believe the democrats are going to blink first because they're not standing on the strongest message they could. >> if you call into the white house comment line there is a message, i didn't believe it when i first saw it on twitter, we checked it out and we called the white house comment line, this is what you hear. >> thank you for calling the white house comment line. thank you for calling the white house. unfortunately, we can not answer your call today because congressional democrats are holding government funding including funding for our troops and other national security priorities hostage to an unrelated immigration debate. due to this obstruction the government is shutdown. >> your response. >> it's ridiculous. i'll be the first to tell you, we need to take the issue up. takes bipartisan issue. the country wants this on a bipartisan basis. it's a personal issue for me. not only is my district 70% latino and i have 8,000 d.r.e.a.m.ers in my district, i have a family member, a cousin
6:44 am
of mine who's a and so for me it is ace personal issue but the american people want us to continue on this issue. my colleagues on the other side of the aisle tell me they're willing to vote on bipartisan legislation. there is bipartisan legislation whether it's d.r.e.a.m. act, wlz it usa act but we can't get a vote on it. that's all we want. we want to vote to have the conversation and debate and that's what we're really asking for. >> it does seem like there is an obvious bill to be done and obvious compromise but it's not one that a majority of the senate republicans or majority of the house republicans would vote for but it is something that would pass the house and senate and it is something that a majority of the american people support. >> yeah. well, the problem is that it's not a problem. the republicans are in control and they have a right to be able to ask for things that they want in exchange for this d.r.e.a.m. act extension and if you look at the bill that was put forward, it wasn't just a daca fix. there were ten million people
6:45 am
that would have been some path for indefinitely in the proposal that the dick durbin and lindsey graham put forward. there was no funding for the wall. the idea that there was a bill there that could've passed that's ridiculous. it never would have pass the house of representatives. if you're the speaker of the house, you've got to put a bill forward that a majority of your members are going to vote for. >> take a listen to vice president pence. he was speaking to troops and this was the message he delivered. >> i'm sure you're all aware what's going on in washington, d.c., despite bipartisan support for a budget resolution, a minority in the senate has decided to play politics with military pay but you deserve better. you and your families shouldn't have to worry for one minute about whether you're going to get paid. >> first of all, the real mvp of this entire process is whoever
6:46 am
mike pence's scheduler is. he's never in washington, d.c. whenever there's in conflict. i'm sure he wasn't here last night or he wasn't here during this debate the night before that because if he was he would have seen that claire mccaskill went to the we will and did something that barack obama did during the shutdown of 2013 was make sure our troops were getting paid and make sure we're paying death payments. there's two women standing up senator stabenow and mccaskill are going and fighting for our troops. they're getting some support but, of course senator mcconnell's not going for it. he's objecting for. they're the ones doing just what mike pence wants. he's never here when with we're having any problem. >> there's the blame game and gamesman ship. we saw this during the obama era in 2013 when there was a shutdown and the world war ii
6:47 am
memorials. governments decide what they're going to shutdown. >> members of the trump administration have learned lessons from the 2013 shutdown. department zinc can i was at the world war ii memorial this weekend. we're going to have it open. they're picking their battles. you're going to see president trump, just like vice president pence did saying, you are going to put amnesty as a higher priority than funding the troops. if that is where the debate goes, donald trump is going to win that fight and he is doing a better job messaging it on those terms than the democrats are explaining why a government shutdown is worth a vote on daca. it's just not. >> do you disagree with that? if the american people see the debate as funding our troops versus people who are not in this country legally, whether it's through fault of their own or not, that that's not a debate that the democrats are going to win? >> i don't think that's what the debate is. these are continuing resolutions.
6:48 am
this is the fourth one. i got here. i voted for two of them. i'm hoping that was going to buy time for us to be able to address this issue. it hasn't. rick had mentioned there was no bipartisan legislation that was beyond the daca. actually, we do have bipartisan legislation. we have the usa act. there's 26 republicans on board. it's the d.r.e.a.m. act coupled with border security. i stayed on homeland security. i'm for border security. we met with john kelly this week, the congressional hispanic caucus. he talked about some of the things we could agree on. having more security at the ports of entry. i represent the port of los angeles having more customs and border protection officers there, great. let's do it. it's going to speed up the process. >> would you be willing to spend $20 billion of -- appropriate $20 billion for a border wall as president trump wants in exchange for a pathway for the d.r.e.a.m.ers? >> the homelands not even asking for that. we need to put the money where it's going to be put to use. border security, we can certainly use it there but there

are other areas other than a wall. i think it would be waste of dollars. >> thanks for being here. all that foot food may have caught up with him. president trump needs to lose a few pounds. what does the presidential diet look like. that's the state of the cartoonian. then i realized something was missing... me. my symptoms were keeping me from being there. so, i talked to my doctor and learned humira is for people who still have symptoms of crohn's disease after trying other medications. and the majority of people on humira saw significant symptom relief and many achieved remission in as little as 4 weeks. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to

infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. be there for you, and them. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible. of being there for my son's winning shot. that was it for me. that's why i'm quitting with nicorette. only nicorette mini has a patented fast dissolving formula. it starts to relieve sudden cravings fast. every great why needs a great how. every great why
