14 days and begin next month. keep watching that, heather. the president promised obama care would accomplish a lot. but for millions of people it has brought more. we have talked to doctors and insurers to separate fact from fiction. dr. seigel is here from the medical a team. the first question that i have for you is obama care will save on healthcare costs fact or fiction? >> that is fiction. the reason that's fiction is because we already know that we are projected out, total healthcare costs according to the center for medicare and medicaid services it will be over $4 trillion in 10 years. it is over 3 trillion now. it used to be 256 billion in 1980. it is continuing to rise despite obama care. it is not controlling costs. how can it when you consider our insurance policies are front

2:26 am
and bureaucracy over lying everything there's still private insurance involved. i would not call it socialized medicine. >> is it a step towards socialized medicine? >> i don't think so. it is expanded private insurance. it's neither a step toward socialized medicine nor a step away. more government control and more private insurance. >> if you get the right doctor you will get the right treatment and you will be paid for it. fact or fiction there? >> that is totally fiction. i interview parents that really bring this home. they talk about treatment being called experimental that are tried and true. >> they are willing to pay visit after visit, oert peedist after oert pe thor peedists. i can't put words as to why they would question a procedure like that. >> dr. meyers is one of the top sports medicine surgeons in the
2:27 am
country. he is doing a tried and true treatment that is curing people. literally the insurance companies are calling it experimental. he had the surgery, it cured him but she couldn't get it paid for. we are finding that more. don't think just because you have the insurance you are going to have the care you need paid for. >> the whole lot of questions you need to be asking. >> doesn't look the way it was supposed to or the waifsh said it would. >> the time now is 25 after the top of the hour. coming up there's nothing like serving yourself except when it is someone pretending to be you. >> i wanted to jump across the table. >> how a waitress caught her own identity thief red handed. it looks like a cute cupcake for a birthday party. one school says the toy soldiers are offensive.
