[ crickets ] >> i'm here to, um, to do um,
shh, oops. >> sorry, i can't do it. [ laughing ] >> one of my favorite moments in presidential debates, sorry, i can't, bye. all right so lots to get to. as i say, eric mccormack coming up at the bottom of the hour. and jim and i got talking about the zimmerman trial in the elevator. we'll talk more about that. we'll try to get marsha clark or lisa bloom. you were saying yesterday that you think he's going to walk. lisa bloom said she thinks the defense had a couple of disastrous days. >> how can you miss it, every cable channel is running it 24/7. >> it's incredible to me is the screaming thing. yes, the guy with the gun is screaming. >> help, i got a gun. >> and then stops immediately after the gunshot. it's hard to figure out who that could have been. then they tried to put trayvon's father on the stand. that's what lisa bloom was
talking about to make it--literally he's grief stricken. he's hearing tape for the first time of his son's last moments of course he's like--he didn't say definitively that's his son. they said he put his head down, and i guess the cop took that as a no, that's not my son. but that's ridiculous to have that and to introduce that he had marijuana in his bloodstream. how is that relevant? >> he had a little bit of thc. it's not pcp. it doesn't make you crazy. >> the whole thing to me, it's so counter intuitive. he clearly racially profiled this kid. >> followed him with a gun. >> the dispatcher said, we don't need you to do that. he does, the kid ends up dead and all this stuff that is completely irrelevant. stuck in my craw. >> apparently. >> right back on "the stephanie
the entire show yesterday became plane talk. jim, of course knows about planes. it's really incredible. here are some of the things they were talking about why nobody noticed the plane was coming in too slow. i don't know anything about planes. why would that be bad. >> no, if you come in too slow. you stall and drop. >> because there is not enough air providing lift over the air. >> it's called the area of reverse command. you use the throttles to apply power because if if you pull back on the yoke at that low speed and you'll stall like a rock. which is what happened to this plane. >> right the other thing seemed to be that he left the first guyish the first captain let the first officer land the plane. he was the one with the less experience, it seems that that was not-- >> they were also just a little
behind the curve because they flight powered too late and then they asked to for a go around too late. >> and then there was a crash accident where no one died. the one that crashed on water but the first thing the captain let the first officer land the plane, then it was too late. maybe the training thing maybe without the people in the plane something. >> that might help. >> first of all you spend a lot of time in the simulator before you fly the actual plane. >> and you can fly into specific airports like sfo on the simulator air. >> was in training the this account saying the mystery deepens, how is the pilot flying misjudged their approach so seriously.
the details imply a serious lack of airmanship. that's what it seems like. >> my first thought is fatigue because they're flying in from seoul. they should have a backup crew. >> how long is that flight. >> it's pretty long. >> i'll google that. a distress of a stick shaker warning. the stick shakes. >> on a plane like that, it's a warning on a plane like that. >> it's also the name of a wreck and effects song. a zoom zoom, zoom, shake your stick. >> and also a warning when porn filming has gone awry. you're coming in too low. >> you're about to lose altitude. >> going in too slow. that's when the i airplane
itself senses it's on the brink of a dynamic stall. when the altitude provokes a stick a shake the idea is to put the nose down and reach speed as quickly as possible. and it was too late, and it seems it would go without saying. >> i thought of wind shear which is what happened in texas all those years ago. but they didn't have the word for it, when the wind suddenly chases and you have no lift, and you drop out of the sky. >> we also learned chris, we have the largest pool of amateur or professional pilots that listen to the show than in the country. someone wrote in and said you're wrong. the francisco airport is not a difficult airport to land, and you're not even an amateur pilot and they think you should close
your pie hole. they were speaking in pig latin and only jim could understand. >> stop agreeing, you know nothing. >> right, that's the only thing everybody could agree on. you should shut your pie hole. >> i'll just be over here. >> i've never gotten a pilots license, but i have flown small aircraft. >> and i cleaned small aircraft, in college i cleaned small planes. >> i was just in a small plane over the holiday. >> being in it does not qualify. i had to clean it and i backed the small plane into a hanger after which i was fired. >> the hanger door was closed. >> i ripped wires and instruments out of a small plane. >> i cleaned bugs and windshields off the small plane and they do in the look like bugs any more. and i had to check out the
instruments saying it was okay to go up. >> and you didn't know what you were doing. >> no. >> you didn't know the difference between an indicator andandand a veloceraptor. >> and i had to guide the planes in, and i didn't know what i was doing either. it was more like cheerleading. >> wow. >> the first officer handled the landing, he was in training on the 777--saturday was his first attempt to land the plane at san francisco airport. >> that would have been nice. >> in a plane he didn't have experience flying. >> the captain who assisted in the landing had over 3,000 hours of experience on the 777 and they were saying a lot of times
even bad conditions, plane 214 was coming in with no other challenges other than flying competently. maybe that's why the captain thought this is fine. >> oops. captain rick perry thought everything was going really well. >> that's probably what he said. it's customary for pilots to build their experience when there are no other unusually circumstances involved, it's part of their routine. the investigation is to find out what happened, why and all that there. 29 minutes after the hour. eric mccormack to talk about his new series on tnt "perception"," which sounds hilarious. it sounds really interesting. we'll talk to eric as we continue on "the stephanie miller show."

this show is about analyzing criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal, or is it political? doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. i've worn lots of hats, but i've always kept this going. i've been doing politics now for a dozen years.

>> imagine our surprise to find out you're straight. >> it's crazy in the last year or two from biden to santorum people keep bringing this show up that was so long ago, it's kind of amazing. >> it must make you feel proud. it really is--it is interesting how many cultureal things are turning points in this country. and will "will & grace" was. >> it wasn't the agenda. the agenda was to be funny. we have aware of young guys and girls coming up and saying, i didn't have the courage to tell my parents, they were watching you every week, and that made it easier. but to be constantly mentioned in political change is amazing. >> do you watch modern family and think hikers, you're late
to the party. >> ellen could have done the same. she came out on her program, and that brought that little peek in the door brought us in the door. it's got to keep growing and growing until it's not an issue any more. >> if you talk politics any more like i do, you look at the polling and that's why this civil rights has moved so fast because you know somebody. people feel like they know characters on tv. it makes it oh, it's that couple i really like, or that guy that i like. >> totally. totally. you can always--it's more like something with milk and monty honey than vinegar. you can do all the guy rights speeches, but people will turn to the programming and that
change will happen naturally rather than having to be forced. >> i think it's catch more flies is what you're thinking. >> catch more flies with honey than vinegar. >> you're excused. you're from canada. >> you were born in toronto. >> i found it's being completely flooded. >> they're having bad flooding problems. >> crazy. i was 30 years in toronto always in the theater before i came west through vancouver and down through l.a. but i was in my 30s before i hit l.a. and was trying out for sitcoms and things. >> i'm not saying that you're overcompensating playing a gay guy, but your new film is macho
barricade and night flight. >> don't they. but the next one is called, i'm going to kill you. >> with my bare hands. >> they're not particularly macho, but the new series is a 180 from will, which was intentional, and it's fun to see people tune in and go, i didn't think i was going to be able to see anything but will, but very quickly i couldn't remember will. >> i heard it's amazing. it's on tnt "perception." a schizophrenic neuropsychiatrist that assists the fbi. >> not only is he paranoid schizophrenic, he's off his medicine by choice. he has enough hubris to believe he can take care of this himself. he's a brain guy. he lives with his hallucinations, the voices in hi

ear. sometimes you don't know if the character he's talking to is there, but, in fact, is not. it's another element to be surprised by. >> oh it's like the sixth sense. >> it's a beautiful mind if john nash solved crimes. >> and talking about split personality. he sang both national anthems. >> i'm not like a sports guy. i'm not a hockey guy, but to stand there and do that, that was ten years ago and that was hard to believe. >> you can be executed in canada for that, not being a hockey guy. >> that's why i was thrown out. >> get out eeh. i love the liner of the notes. you're a professor of the which is university.

okay see i'm bias. i love eliot. we know him. he's our colleague here at current. >> great man. >> i ran into him at msnbc i found him incredibly smart and just funny. >> just because he did that one dalliance does not make him unsmart. >> well, there is a new bar for sex scandals, let me just say between schwarzenegger and sandford, pick one edwards you know. anyway, and he's funny about it. he has a sense of humor about it he has humility, and as jim said he's really smart and he's right on all this wall street stuff and comptroller, i think he's very well-qualified for that job. >> he will make that position into the second most powerful position in new york city. >> yes our friend at the daily beast write about that. his run for new york city comptroller.
eliot spitzer is throwing his hat in for the comptroller race, and why spitzer is smarter than weiner. spitzer or weiner. he's saying what i just said. that's what i sensed when i met him. he has a humility to him and the way he handled the whole scandal, and the way--they were just saying of course weiner has to go with the biggest, the mayor thing. >> not hubris. >> no, where eliot is taking the approach you know, doing time, doing penance, public service who knew. we'll talk about what his plan is. we'll continue the spitzer weiner choose, spits or weiner. >> really? you will think we were going on vacation soon, no. >> you would think politics is just a big joke. we'll be right back on stephanie miller.

>> stephanie: marvin in chicago on spitzer weiner. good morning. >> caller: good morning. i wanted to call in when you start hearing about weiner. there is a big difference. i just can't past weiner. there is something the creepiness in terms of sending photographs of himself. i think we can overlook prostitution and spitzer's body of work, no pun intended. >> stephanie: marvin, the weiner thing, of all sex scandals in some ways is the weirdest because there was no sex involved. >> the fact that he's taking photographs of himself and send to a drastically younger woman and he has no credibility with the voters of new york. >> i'm going to guess if i were a wife if i had to choose between 15 years of unprotected sex with prostitutes or sending
a picture to someone. >> he should have sent a wienerschnitzel. >> it doesn't look provocative something in the viennese style. >> from my friend at the daily beast, eliot spitzer, and weiner, that's his job. it looks like that the sex scandal is dead. weiner whose crotch shots seems to only have added to his street cred. >> people high fiving him everywhere. >> stephanie: and pointing out it should be said that bubba set the poll on credible claims of
confidence. that is true. mark san fed set it earlier this year for running for his congressional seat. i'm just saying if i were a wife, which is a stretch but my point is ♪ if i were a rich man ♪ >> would you choose your husband falling in love with someone else and having a mistress, and some people might take hookers or crotch shots. just saying. >> i wouldn't like either. i wouldn't like either. >> no, i wouldn't neither. i'm just saying for comparing relative sex scandals. anthony weiner said it was time to run for new york city mayor. it must be said that spitzer is smarter than weiner. weiner could not help himself. he had to run for the highest office in the land, city hall. as i've argued before. a far smarter modest move would be to run for for public
advocate for comptroller work hard, put your head down, four years later an electoral redemption would have been earned and that's spitzer's game plan and he's likely going to be successful. we'll see a comeback from a driven man who want to be taken seriously in a position of power. i wish him well. i like eliot spitzer.

>> it drives me nuts when there is a crash and people say the engine stalling. it's like they're talking about cars. the stall is an aerodynamic issue. >> they said it was not the engines at all. the chair woman yesterday. >> they were clear to land by the tower, and then there was the accident sequence, and the subsequent launch of the emergency responders on the airport property. >> i'm wondering if they set the flaps and all the leading edge slats, that pops out automatically at a certain angle of attack. but the. >> the black box will tell us. >> stephanie: right. >> one of the two black boxes which are really orange. >> stephanie: see, there is another plane fact did i not know. did you know that? >> i did know that. >> black boxes they're-- >> so they're easier to find. >> but black box you can't tell from the outside what is going on in therish but technically
they're orange. >> stephanie: as many people speculated why don't they make the plane out of what is made for the black box. >> because it would not get off the ground. >> well, you solved that problem. >> we're in cleveland. woe, we're here. >> you would be a very big expensive bus with tiny bathrooms. >> you can't make bathrooms out that have material. >> sound byte: the lower portion of the tail come was was at the rocks of the sea wall, and there was a significant portion of the plane in the water. >> stephanie: yes, so the investigation continues. that is standard procedure about letting the first officer land in order to get experience. >> he wasn't ready for it. >> stephanie: yeah, it seems like that's where that is going but who knows until he completes the investigation.
speaking of mishaps. the flight attend denies snugging a pet rat in her underwear. >> hmm. >> stephanie: and files suit. american airlines flight attend accused by her colleagues of smuggling a pet rat in her underwear. >> they smell cats in her underwear. >> really. >> stephanie: if you do not stop being such a weiner spitzer. >> oh, my god. >> stephanie: okay she is filed lawsuit against the airline claiming the accusations results in increased custom screenings and now there is dress stress disorder. they're going to ask not only did you pack your bag but did you pack a rat in your who ha. >> don't rats have teeth? they could chew through

and some people have sent me future husband meat stacks. cops dui eat the patrol car. >> not just the bumpers. >> stephanie: the entire car. >> some parts are edible. >> stephanie: right? that's the plan. he had a plan. he's accused of resisting arrest on charges of drunk driving and more legal trouble to chew on after eating part of the patrol car. in his defense he made it clear he did not want to be taken in by sheriff deputy so he started gnawing on the patrol car because he didn't want to be taken to jail. >> nobody wants to be taken to jail. >> stephanie: well, i'm just saying. in more time he could have eaten the entire car. all right this is--because that's car stack meets future
husband stack. here the future corner. [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> are you holding out on the future husbands? where is my future husband stack? >> i'm doing a new show called "future husband hoarder." >> stephanie: so charlie pierce, he sums it up as he often does. he said obamacare is bad because irs and benghazi benghazi, benghazi. it's important to know that no victory will be a permanent one. there is too much money unleashed on the other side. >> you should throw abortion in there, too. they're very key on abortion. >> stephanie: exactly. and michaelel tomasky has written about this new koch brothers ad. and it begins airing, it's
smart, savvy, and likely to be effective. >> we're talking about the one where it's a mom saying i don't know what i'm going to get for higher premiums, smaller paycheck, and i can't pick my doctors, that one? >> stephanie: right. >> all lies. >> oh, there is that. >> stephanie: that's what he said. are democrats ready to respond. we're going to do a corner a day if we have to because i don't know--when you were helping to get healthcare passed did you see this coming? that this was going to be this even after it was passed? >> yeah, they've been attacking all along. they're going to do everything. we haven't tried to repeal it in the house now of 37 times because they're willing to give up. if anything they're proving that no matter what they're going to fight this to the bitter end because there is so much money at stake. that's what is behind all of this. it's the lobbyists and insurance companies and the medical drug manufacturers and the device manufacturers. it's such an industrial complex. >> stephanie: yeah, in speaking,
you actually happened to bring up abortion. charlie has written a lot about what the coke brothers are doing with scott walker and wisconsin. this is a sliver of good news. the courts have blocked on the ban of reproduction rights with what with in wisconsin with what scott walker has done there. >> yes. >> stephanie: michael tomasky writes they'll run an ad, one of several that is planned to attack obamacare. this opens the 2014 campaign. it doesn't matter, the results of the last election, the supreme court ruling, they're just marching forward on this. >> i would argue from a p.r. perspective. a lot of people are discussing whether or not it was the right thing to do for the administration to say they were going to delay the employer responsibility part of the law for a year.
now we found out kind of buried in the news friday is that they're going to layoff kind of checking on your salary reporting if you want to participate in the exchange, they're also going to hold out on whether or not you get health insurance from your employer they're not going to check that as vehemently as they normally would. basically they're making sacrifices in the short term to get this all implemented. and there are some questions on the p.r. front. i would argue, and i was thinking about this yesterday because this is what i do in my free time. the administration would be better suited to be incredibly transparent about all this. to have the president get up there with catherine sebelius making a speak and saying we know there is a huge list and there may be trade-offs in the short term. they're not going to affect how many people get health insurance and all the good things happening, but there there are
going to be trade-offs and this is what they're going to be. getting in front of this is a much better strategy than admitting that you have to take some bad press and try to bury it in the news cycle. i think from media communications perspective there is a better way to go about this. >> stephanie: let's do that. tomasky writes with no accomplishments and possibly killing immigration reform and admitting themselves and the benghazi and the irs are not going to be barack obama's undoing, they're grasping at their final straw frightening people about healthcare reform. the sad thing it has a decent chance of succeeding. michael writes the ad by the koch brothers is very smart, we have a young mother, pretty y julie, mother of two. [ dinging bell ] her son caleb has health issues, she's also pregnant, and she
voices her concerns about obamacare. if we can't pick our own doctor. >> oh, boy. >> stephanie: as michael writes. >> no restrictions. no restrictions on the doctor that you can choose. that doesn't change. you're restricted now if you think about it. you have health insurance your shines companyinsurance company tells you who is in-network and out of network. there are doctors who don't take private insurance because it's too red tape and cost prohibitive for them and their staff spends more time on the phone arguing with insurance companies than not helping patients. if you want to talk about not seeing the doctor you want, that's happening now. >> stephanie: and then higher premiums and a smaller paycheck. >> not true. if you get the exchanges up and running, the premiums are lower and you're going to get more for the money you're paying because there are standard benefits.
a lot of employers are being forced to push premiums on their employees because the insurance companies are raising them arbitraryily. >> yes can you muzzle nazi benghazi. >> i will say the organization that came out of president obama's campaign arm is out with their new organizing for action now. that's what it's called. they have a counter an ad that's going up that talks about how the healthcare re reform law eliminates lifetime caps. if you have a sick child there is no limit on how much the insurance company pays out. it shows another young mother who has a child who basically hit halfway to her cap by her first birthday because she was born with an illness or ailment of some sort. you know, if you want to make that argument is that if you have a child who is ill the problem used to be, a, the kid
could not get cover because of pre-existing conditions down the line. but also the insurance company had a limitation of how much it would pay out and if you have a sick kid that could be hit by the first or second birthday. >> michael tomasky speaks about stacey lind, the mother of a two-year-old girl whose life was saved by obamacare because her two previous heart surgeries had pushed her up against the cap that obamacare made unlawful. shedemocrats being democrats always second guessing themselves if the emotional approach wreaks of blackmail. we never heard of her the entire election season. we need to fight fire with fire in terms of real stories. >> the real stories are tricky. this is something that i learned very early on.
it's very difficult when you tell people, i hate to call them sob stories, but that's the best way to describe them. it makes me sound incentive, and that's not what i mean. but when you tell people's personal stories. we have a weird reaction. we don't get angry. we want to blame the victim or solve the problem but it doesn't incite anger. it's a way that we react to those stories. and so i think that there is a different tack to take. people don't say i'm scared as hell and i'm not going to take it any more. you need to get angry. and sometimes those personal stories don't resonate other than to make people feel sad or find a reason to blame the person suffering. >> stephanie: react to this part of tomasky's piece. he said, talking about all that is explaining, which is what we're saying. not emoting. so emoting julie gets the job
done. but it makes the usually rail mistake that people will listen to an argument rather than responding to earnest pleas to pretty blonds. >> i'm not a guy so i don't understand the earnest plea from a pretty blond. >> stephanie: i do, trust me. >> i'm sure i've been that blond. >> stephanie: interestingly, he talks about what you said. the implementation of the law is going to be complicated and there is going to be--it's going to be frustrating for some people. as you said, it's a big left. it's a big part of the economy. he's saying they're going to have an easier time finding horror stories. that's where this trench warfare is going to fought, on the end of the anecdote. >> i don't know, the anecdote is rough because people don't relate to the anecdote as much. and i think that-- >> stephanie: he says as opposed--we're not going to get very far with statistics. >> no, no, people can't relate to statistics at all. but i think you need to take a
higher level tactic. generate anger and make people realize where this is coming from. get angry at the insurance companies and employer who is are cutting jobs. get angry at the people who are responsible and not just defer to democrats or the president and you kind of have to--i don't know how we do this in this day and age. but some how get past the politics of this and get to the substantial policy of it. again, i like to say this, disease does not discriminate. cancer does not ask if you're a republican or democrat. republicans just don't want to pay for the treatment. >> stephanie: can you hang on? >> are you going to produce the news? >> stephanie: yes. >> you just wait there missy. we'll take a couple of questions from jacki healthcare corner as we continue on "the stephanie miller show"." >> announcer: call stephanie now.
[ ♪ music ♪ ] [ ♪ music ♪ ] stephanie miller [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> it is "the stephanie miller show," welcome to it. 23 minutes after the hour.1-800-steph-12 toll-free from anywhere. jacki schechner, nurse jacki is with us for "jacki's corner." steve is with us. hi steve. >> caller: good morning. i was hoping that jacki might be able to help me out on this question. i haven't been able to find information on it.
it pertains to chronic diseases. i've had lyme disease for ten years, and it wasn't diagnosed until four years after i got it. since that time i've been diagnosed with half a dozen brain lesions. >> stephanie: oh my goodness. >> caller: the competently internationally renown physicians infectious disease physician who is suggest more powerful drugs for the symptoms of the lyme disease and the co-infections are being turned down by insurance companies because they say well, that drug is not recommended for that type of treatment. and is there any provision to enforce insurance companies to allow physician-patient approval to use a drug allow them to get that type of medication from an
insurance company? >> that's a really good question. to be perfectly honest with you i would have to research if there is any requirement within the law, but i do know one thing that is important that the law is paying attention to is comparative effectiveness research. to figure out what procedures and drug are tricky because they cut a deal with farm fharma to figure out drugs and treatment relative to cost. we're used to pay attention to the newest, shiniest and brightest without paying attention to research, and it ends up costing us more. what the law calls for is effectiveness to see if we're spending money on the most effective and cost effective at the same time.
>> stephanie: alan in chicago. go ahead. >> caller: jacki, my question for you is the implementation of the healthcare law and the states that are refusing the additional funds from medicaid. won't this result in a two-tiered level of service? >> yep. i mean. >> in a word. >> it's going to be president bushproblematicbecause you'll end up with a lot of people who don't have access to healthcare. >> caller: the states are refusing to abide by the intent of law correct? >> it's unfortunate, but with when the supreme court made it's ruling it said that the states had the ability to opt out of those expansion. it ultimately is their decision, and it's not going to put burden on the state because the federal government picks up the tab for the first three years.
>> and the consistent impact of the law nationwide is just going to add fuel to the fire of the ardent foes of it. >> it's part of the effort to sabotage it in its entirety because if you don't expand access to any sort of healthcare for those who make under is is 130% of the poverty level, they're without access. >> stephanie: that's why michael tomasky's piece is so important. this is all that the g.o.p. has. they've lost every fight with the president. this is what they're going to do for the next three and a half years is to reverse the biggest law. they're going to actively work against this. >> it's personal and scary. people don't like big changes. it's something that they can inherently tap into. there is an inherent fear that they can tap in to. but people need to be strong and
brave and say big changes come with big--i don't even say it's risk because at this point it's not really a risk. it's a big change that will do us good. it's not perfect. >> stephanie: he's basically saying they better be ready because we long ago past logic. when the supreme court ruling came down, it will be over, but they're unprecedented. they're going to try to impede and continue to misinform. >> to have being afraid to fight. that's the argument that i would make. for people who are worried they don't have the details and the facts stop being afraid. people are making too much money and too much profit on other people's pain. this is one step in the right direction, and we're going to take more steps down the road. >> stephanie: let's get one more in. cory, go ahead. >> caller: it's funny you
mentioned people paying. i'm currently dealing with--i had a back injury and dealing with chronic back pain, but i was wondering if you had advice for somebody that doesn't have any insurance. currently unemployed due to recent layoff, and i need to deal with this some how. immediately. it's getting to the point where it's affecting my daily life. to the point, it's like, i just--i'm trying to get something done now. >> i would say what you need to do is take a look at what your state has to offer because a lot of states--it's not well publicized in a lot of states but they do have programs that are available either high-risk pools that are not terribly effective but a stop-gap measure or state-funded coverage and take a look to see what your state offers, go online and make some phone calls. >> stephanie: okay, we're out of
if you believe in state's rights but still support the drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the day. >> do you think there is any chance we'll ever hear the president even say the word "carbon tax"? >> with an opened mind... >> has the time finally come for real immigration reform? satirical point of view. >> but you mentioned great leadership so i want to talk about donald rumsfeld. >> (laughter) >> cutting throught the clutter of today's top stories. >> this is the savior of the republican party? i mean really? >> ... with a unique perspective. >> teddy rosevelt was a weak asmatic kid who never played sports until he was a grown up. >> (laughter) >> ... and lots of fancy buzz words. >> family values, speding, liberty, economic freedom, hard-working moms, crushing debt, cute little puppies. if wayne lapierre can make up stuff that sounds logical while making no sense... hey, so can i. once again friends, this is live tv and sometimes these things happen. >> watch the show. >> only on current tv.

stops putting handcuffs on governor who are doing nothing more than circumvent federal law. the states have the right to make it difficult in some areas but they can't circumvent the law. now this thing about women's rights birth control you know, abortions, things of that nature, that's out of their league. truthfully, i don't see how come our attorney general has not got off his tail and go and kick the door in and say you know you guys you actually are violating federal law, and its time to pay the price. they're making it so hard for average, every day people to get healthcare to go to planned parenthood, to get breast ma'am
glance, things of that nature, they're making these things so hard, and to me it's like at what point you're going to make it so hard that people are going to start fighting back, and i don't think it will be a pretty case when the end result is when people have no choice but to fight back because it will be a life-and-death situation. >> stephanie: yes, yes, you know, i got to say thank got for the courts.

you're saying what are they doing in texas? and what did they just do in ohio. this is scott walk center walker in wisconsin. requiring women to have an ultrasound here we go again. virginia virginia started this. this is the same kind of thing that they're doing in texas. the state had one passed the law but the courts had another idea. the laws that require women to undergo ultrasounds blah-blah-blah, so they entered a restraining order. it's literally like they've lost every fight so they're--with the president. this is what he said. in any case this is all the
g.o.p. has. they tried to beat obama on every front from the economy terrorism to the environment to the recent scandals. they have lost most of those fights and even the 2011 debt ceiling, the only win was a loss because while obama lost standing the congress lost more standing and they lost the big fight. the world's historical state versus anti-state fight the one over obamacare. maybe a lot of us, charlie pierce writes about this. you lost, now what we do in a democracy this is the law of the land. this is different this time. >> they want to break up the union again and just have--well. >> they're going to spend the next three and a half years to reverse that law. they'll start in mostly red states where senators face toughites next year or where retiring the seat might swing and they'll never stop.
the house has tried to repeal obamacare 38 times and they'll try to destroy his legacy and talking obamacare and the president and it's defenders better be ready. >> they're losing like iraqi lost. they lost and so they burn all the oil fields on their way out. >> stephanie: yes, good analogy. >> we have made clear all along when it comes working with states that we're flexible with the way that they implement the affordable care act. >> stephanie: yeah, and of course as jacki was saying they're going to turn flexibility into, oh, it's weakness, failure, blah-blah. senator jack reed of rhode island. >> the vast majority of companies provide healthcare already and will continue to do so. but give the potential confusion postponing it, not eliminating
it, but postponing it makes sense. >> stephanie: because there were so many questions for jacki did i not take down the right wing troll that said are you going to sign up for obamacare. yes. i'll just answer that yes. >> the computer says yes. >> stephanie: first of all we're of the 98% of companies that already have healthcare. people don't--they want to resist stuff that even is just affecting this much of the population but positively. the exchange is for people who don't get insurance at work like 98% of us do. really you want to make this much--or our caller was talking about people who need medicaid, and you have the misfortune of being in a red state where the governor has refused the money for. senator bob corker, the republican of tennessee. >> what it's doing is keeping employers from bringing on any kind of employees.
and it's very damaging. pushing it back a year is not going to undue the uncertainty. >> stephanie: the obamacare that has already been enacted has killed all these jobs. >> but it will have had destroyed jobs. >> stephanie: it won't undo the damage that's it's already undone by not being done yet. i can see that logic. >> and it will be pushed back by a million years that ought to take care of it. fix it. >> stephanie: hi don. >> hi, i was just wondering if you were going to sign up for affordable healthcare act. >> stephanie: yes. >> and if not, i was wonder goingwonderingif al-jazeera. >> we're not going to be working for al-jazeera. >> stephanie: he was not listening. >> to answer your question, yes. >> stephanie: he was not listening.

there will be nothing left if we continue on this course. i agree the individual stories they don't have the impact that they could but the politicians are asking for this. we have bills in the senate ready to be passed to get it just in massachusetts. i think that's the way to go. to do it state by state. that's how canada did it, but the politicians are saying we're not hearing enough from the people. as i walk around, i live in northampton, a very progressive area i talk about it, and people say oh, yeah, i'm all for it then they change the subject. there is just no energy behind it. >> stephanie: i hear you. it's really hard to know how to push it forward. >> all you can do is doing what you're doing speaking the truth. >> stephanie: 43 minutes after the hour, we come back with charlie pierce. >> holy cow, you just blew my mind.
