5:00 pm
thank you for watching. huckabee starts in just a now -- few seconds. >> tonight on huckabee, targeted by the federal government. >> the first contact we had in the irs just a general round of questions, at some point those questions crossed the line. >> after years of harrassment, they are getting tax exempt status, but is she satisfied? >> it is an honor to put on the school jersey. and it is a me, me, me. and representing the whole school. >> the high school football coach who suspended the team on the life lessons you can't learn studying a play bock. >> americans you want the repolled and i wont be surprised if the democrats secretly wanted
5:01 pm
it repolled. the show down on capitol hill. ♪ >> welcome to huckabee. we are coming to you from little rock, arkansas. brace yourself, because i think there may be one aspect of obama care where the president is absolutely right. >> if it was as bad as they said it was going to be, they could let it happen and everybody would hate it so much and then everybody vote to repeal it and that would be the end of it. >> the republicans need to stop fighting among themselves about who dislikes obama care the most. every single republican in the house and senate voted against it. everyone. not one republican is on the hook for obama care. the democrats own it totally and completely.
5:02 pm
and if the republicans in the house and senate feel it is it a job- killing and economy busting disaster and increase costs and limit medical choices and leave people in the lurches, there is a way to fight it more effectively. all of the republicans voted to defund and delay obama care, but they didn't have the votes. here's my advice, give the democrats obama care under the conditions, no delays for anyone. not big business and not small business. and not labor unions and states or members of congress or their staffs and no exemptions. not one group gets an exemption from obama care especially not congress or the staff. make the democrats oat their own cooking, because if they think it is good for our plates, they need to take the first bite. republicans can't defund obama care because the votes just are
5:03 pm
not there. and so, draft a bill that funds it, but which allows no exemptions or delays and no exceptition. and right in the bill a sunset clause. the bill expires and it has to be reauthorized on january 15th, 2015. if it is good as president obama and democrats say it is, the public will love it so much, they will insist that it is reauthorized and if it is disastrous as the republicans and general public and i think it is going to be, the republicans will win enough lecs to gain control of the senate with a super mangity and add enough members in the house to override a presidential veto. learn things through bibliical
5:04 pm
lessons. this is a mount carmel moment. remember that great moment from i kings chapter 18 when prophet elija h 450 prophet was ba a l to meet him on mount carmet. he didn't try to delay or fund the false prophets. take their best shot to call down fire from heaven. he would do the same thing. 450 of them and just one of him. they tried for hours to call for fire to tall and they had no fire. elija h didn't mind being outnumbered 450 and ordered the water to be drenched with water so that any fire would have a hard time consuming his offering. he so believed he was following the right god, he put everything on the line. in public for the world to see. no middle of the night back room
5:05 pm
deals. all of it in the open. and elijah called and the four fell and the altar and sacrifice. >> give the democrats what they want for a year. make it clear to the american public that it belongs to the democrats and if works like president obama and nancy pelosi and reid claims america will be better off and i will take to the stage to acknowledge they were right and we were wrong. but if the people in america are disgusted as i

weekend takeneding our 40th year class reunion from the hope high school in hope, arkansas. now, i got to tell you tis little disgusting so many of my classmates look much younger than me. i do have a lot of miles on me and i have always felt so blessed to be a group of lifelong friends they cherisbi and respect. we became teen agers in the turbulent 60s and the first-class to end racial segregation in our community as we started high school. we loved each other as true friends do. 40 years ago we had bell bottoms and side burns and shoulder length hair and now we have grandkids and we wonder what is wrong with the younger
5:07 pm
generation? my gosh, we pecame our parents. to my class in hope, arkansas 1973, i dedicate tonight's show. unless congress reaches a deal, the government could shut down on tuesday, october 1st. i oner how many americans know what a shutdown would do to them. redeye bill shut z took to the streets of new york city. >> what will happen when the government shuts down. >> it is a croiing shame the congress hasn't done that. >> government shutdown, what do you think? >> i continuing is it dangerous. i am concerned about it. >> are you worried about what is happening on october 1st? >> i have no idea what is happening on october 1st. >> judging by your acent you are from florida? >> new wre land. >> i thought that was a mythical place and mermaids and what have
5:08 pm
you. what about your wife where are you from? >> ask you a couple of questions. >> no, thank you. >> they are so upset about the government shutdown. they will not talk. >> stupid. >> i want people firm in my opinion that it is stupid. >> what do you think will happen to the government shutdown. >> i don't think it will happen. >> they have done it before? >> i am optimistic. >> i blame newt gipping rich. he doesn't have going to do with it but i don't trust his big head. >> who do you blame more congress or the senate. >> i blame obama. >> that will make the cut. >> are you angry in congress or september or all of them and do we agree we like butter and eggs. >> i love it but i am disappointed in congress. >> hear that congress, you have eggs and butter after you. >> how mad are you that congress
5:09 pm
gets paid when the government shuts down? >> that kind of pisses me off. >> we'll have to bloep the word. >> i don't think they will do. it >> what will happen if they do? >> not much. >> you might be right. why do we not pay taxes until the government starts dpaen. >> that is grade. >> what will happen? >> all i know is what i read and there are certain departments that will close down and will have the necessary services that we. >> i like being serviced. >> i like being serviced to. >> we'll talk about that. >> despite ted cruz' 21 hour speech the senate passed a bill follow-upping obama care money. njoining me. i endorsed senator mcconnell in the bid for reelection. >> let me start with a question
5:10 pm
of how the senate might react to a house bill if it delayed obama care for a year and stripped out medical equipment tax and things such as that? >> all republicans in the senate would be enthusiastic about a bill. procedural stuff is confusing. every senate republican voted to defund obama care and all on the same side with obama care. it has not divided us from the beginning. and we would be in favor of any other version of that, too. defund can't get democrats to vote for it. medical device tax is in there and interesting to note that 79 senators voteed to repeal the medical device tax. it would be tough for all of those democrats who earlier in the year voted to repeal the medical tax divided not to.
5:11 pm
>> and you know, this week, republicans that maybe had a different point of view about the strategy, but the strategy to defeat it, folks like you are called rhino and squish. and member of the surrender caucus and other things i can't repeat on television. so tell me, what is it that really happen and try to walk us through the procedure of the cloture vote which is a 60 vote threshold versus a simple majority that you favored and only required 51 votes to defound obama care. >> the problem with the strategy that was advocated. it been followed senate republicans would have shut down the government. polls she that 80 percent of the americans are opposed to a government shutdown. we didn't feel and a majority of the senate republican colleagues didn't feel a strategy for a government shutdown is a winner for us and obama care
5:12 pm
would still stand because it would be unaffected. >> we wanted a strategy that gets an outcome and when we had an opportunity to vote on defunding obama care, every single republican voted to defund obama care, but the problem we had, motorcycle. 54 of them and 46 of us. and 54 is more than 46. and so the senate democrats got their way. that is simple mathematical problem. >> if obama care stands, you think it will fall on its own w >> it can't possibly work. it is creating chaos in the country. a record number of part- time jobs and insurance premiums are going up and the promise that the president made if you have a health care plan you like you will keep. it that's not happening.
5:13 pm
none of the promises are coming through. a trillion in tax increases and reimbursement cuts to hospitals and hospice and home health care and the like. chaos in the country. this will not stand. you know, it may or may not be ended this week and i think that is uplikely given who is the president and who will run the senate. it will crack and fall. i guarantee you. >> i know president obama had harsh words for republicans on friday. you wonder why the white white and congress can't make headway. senator mcconnell will answer that question and more. stay with us. i would like to hear from you. go to my web site and tell me what you think. seen up for our facebook page and follow me on twitter. find the link to that on [ sneezes ]

changes in the catastrophic law that americans hachlt obama care is the worst legislation past in the half century. it is indeed a train wreck. look, we need to try to get it changed. you had a senate democrat come out for a one year delay earlier this week. and 79 septemberors including a heck of a lot of democrats voted earlier this year to repole the medical equipment tax. democrats are beginning to crack. jimmy hoffa wrote a letter to the president that you are destroying the 40 hour work woke and health care plan. democrats are dping to crack and we are nudging them in the right trekz to save the american people. >> there is friction and tension, but going forward, is
5:19 pm
the senate going to come together? is there a deep wound that is going to take time to heal among the republicans by the way? >> no, look, this is a difference in opinion about tactics. that's all it is. we are all in favor of getting rid of obama care, we just voted that way friday. there is no difference of opinion on obama care. but i, for example didn't think a government shutdown which 80 percent of the american people are against was a good idea. we will not shut the government down. the bill is back from the house and hope it will be more appealing to the senate democrats, we know they are nervous about obama care as well. >> senator tis it a pleasure to visit with you. there is a lot going on in washington and glad there is, maybe this will get resolved.

5:24 pm
>> you foil for the irs and you are hearing from the fbi and dtef what did they want to know? >> all manner of things. the fbi was interested in people coming to our programs. the bureau of alcohol, and tobacco and firearms was interested in having us pull out our guns and open the safe. what is concerning is the rapid succession of their visit ands unplanned audits upon their a arrival and the fact in 20 years we haven't sewn any agencies. >> three years of abuse, last week the irs finally agreed to do tax exempt status. fighting with the irs is not over. catherine great to have you back and i understand you got word. you received documents from the

5:26 pm
with lawyers and accountants fighting this. it was a huge sum of money. at this point, paul park figure how much are you out trying to get the federal government off of your neck because you applied for a tax exempt status for an election organization? >> the application process north of $80,000. and personally it is well in express of 100,000 and the lawsuit, those dollars and zeros add up here. it is not an inexpensive thing i rather pay it and what price is freedom. and if we don't press forward, there is no doubt that organizations like ours are not going to be around much longer. >> the department of justice were like you got your exemption status and we'll call an end to this and we are done with it and
