11:00 am
>> you know, we are very amused by our selves. >> have a great weekend everybody. we will catch you monday. >> thank you for joining us. "the real story" starts right now. >> very cute guys. and today the latest on the gop meeting with the white house. already some mixed reaction. and an exclute ssivexclusive. computer software giant tells us how easy it is for people to hack the obama care website for people to steal your personal information. >> the talks at the white house on day 11 of the government shut down and the deadline less than a week away as well. both sides trying to figure out
11:01 am
a way to get the government running and the debt ceiling maybe raised. what are you hearing wendell? >> reporter: the president's meeting with senate republicans went longer with yesterday's meeting with republicans from the house. that may be because the president likes the proposal more than the one than he does in the house. republicans in the house want to hike the debt ceiling but they want talks on spending before ending the shut down. harry r areeid said that is not going to happen. a driving rain here a short time ago, none went to the cameras. but they said they will start work on a bipartisan solution. they will need to sell it to republicans in the house and they don't want to end the shut
11:02 am
down without concessions from the president. >> we are not doing that. this is an offer that is predicated on serious negotiations and it is a limited offer. it goes out six weeks but it says let's not have the country go into default. let's try and work this out. >> on the senate side, however, some republicans think the party has done itself a disservice. here is john mccain. >> we shut down the government and that gave the opportunity for this to be terribly mismanaged by the white house. they shut down the government with a fool's errand and that is a fact. >> there has been a change in tone. insisting that the would not gauchetiate in raising the debt ceiling to a focus that
11:03 am
he has been having with lawmakers pretty much all week. have a good weekend. >> we have heard from senator grassly. the senator tweeted, meeting at white house over a very good discussion of shut down. hope i'm surprised. there may be progress. for more on today's developments, let's bring in brett bayer. >> it is interesting because we see senator grass ly being optimistic. but another senator told reporters not so much. are you surprised that the senators would have a different reaction after they are all in the same room with the president? >> in washington it has been interesting to see the different sides interpret what they hear
11:04 am
from the same meetings. it was more of a serious policy content discussion. did not think going over there thinking it would be useful but i left there thinking it was constructive and left there thinking a sweet spot may be to this problem. you heard about that from the house republicans last night. i think we are a little ways away from that sweet spot. there was an account that president obama had asked for increased revenues. >> right. and that has been his stance forever. but republicans i think may be getting to a point where they figure out a way to do increased revenues but not in the way that the president has talked about them before. by changing the tax code and expanding the base and changing
11:05 am
the way that taxes are dealt with in the country they can come up with revenues and everything is not on the same page but they get to the same result. >> i want to talk about the military death benefits. yesterday the president seemed to do an about face. jay carney came out and implied that the president had no intension of signing that bill and then he said it is up to the fisher house they stepped up and then the president signs it. what do you make of that? >> it is interesting. jay carney was asked about that and he said we don't need a congressional solution on this. senator read said that it was really legally viable. i'm guessing here that, that was
11:06 am
behind the scenes and it sets a bit of a present that this was one thing that the president signed legislatively and there are bills that the president has not taken up. >> one of the things that mentioned was that it was simply a loan. that they would be paid back. there was a deal that wasn't a loan that was apparently turned down by this administration. it is the worst thing that this country has ever done allows these families to come to dover air force base on their own money. that was apparently by arnold fisher. what does that say about the president then? >> well, it says first of all, that the administration did not
11:07 am
handle this the right way, because the under secretary of defense was warning that this could be a possibility that this could happen and then congress passes this bill the military pay act that all parties believed that was covered and there was a legal interpretation by lawyers that we were told in the department of justice and they get a ruling that it is not covered. when the administration finds out that, it should act. that is a big problem. i do think for the administration to start funding something was going to raise questions about how funding was going to come out of the house. >> have a great show today and a good week end. we want to hear from you.
11:08 am
what do you think is happening with the shut down. who do you think is to blame? tweet us and we will read your tweets and e-mails at the end of the show. >> the agency that monitors our nuclear reactors due to the shut down. we are told inspect toneinspecke one. the impact will be economic. nuclear plants produce 1/5 of the nation's electricity. the feds had threatened to shut those california facilities down this week. now they say the company had taken steps to fix things. raw chicken had sickened people across 16 states since march.

11:15 am
doesn't make sense for them to engage. >> doesn't this program only work if they sign up? in other words if they pay in the money to help pay for the money? >> the larger pool is having larger pools to offset the people that do need the coverage at that moment. i mean that is the idea of having a larger pool. young people are the most interested in signing up. even though there are campaigns to prevent them from signing up it is some that many need today. if they are pregnant, these are things that they do need today. >> that is a small faction. i'm considering you part of this group. for the most part you are healthy. if you were given the choice,
11:16 am
would you sign up? >> absolutely. people see what the options that are there. that is a lot of what they are seeing. a lot of people are going into see the options that are there. for most, they are going to end up being less than $100 a month. you believe that this program could completely fall apart if young people don't sign up. >> it is called a depth spiral. if you don't have enough young relatively young healthy people who are not overpaying and we are seeing premiums going way up for these folks, if they say forget it i'm going to wait, pay the relatively cheap tax and if i get sick and get into an accident, then the insurers have to take me, because i have a pre-existing condition, from a

on our program wednesday, bill o'reilly called for chuck hagel to resign. >> he should have brought it to the president way before anticipating that would happen. so let's not have it happen. he is gone he's through it is a matter of when they will boot him out. he can't be the secretary of defense any longer. because they don't respect him. he's gone. he never should have gotten the job in the beginning. >> hi patricia. >> hey how are you? >> when you hear him say that do you agree with him or disagree? >> i think secretary hagel has to work with what he's got and it is difficult to say what he could do any different. congress is not doing it's job in sitting down and making sure that our troops have what they
11:31 am
need. somebody should have alerted them and told them that we have a problem. they passed this bill but nobody came back and said hey, guys this is going to be a big issue. nobody did anything about it. all the lawyers began talking but congress didn't talk. >> we are talking about $100,000 for 26 families who are going to get that money thanks to the fisher house. but you have exclusive information for us today about a republican billionaire who was willing to do what? >> sheldon addelson has been a big donor to our troops and he called me and said i hear rumors that the bodies might not be flown to america because we have such funding issues. and i said i will give you my planes and pick those bodies up

11:33 am
race ain the last presidential election. but thank you for bringing us up to speed on that story. >> no problem. >> in the meantime. starbuck's taking on the government shout down inviting republicans to sign a petition. is it simply pr? let's bring in our male power panel. and tom, are you the business guy here? starbucks has been known to get involved in political discussions what do you think about this move? >> i love the howard schultz story. he starts this company and is an american success story. i worry about intermingling his
11:34 am
personal feelings and i worry about what kind of lists they are building and i think he is progressive and do they build these lists and exploit them later on. >> charles is giving this a lot of thought. >> andy, do you have a problem with it? >> i don't. i think it is fine. i hate petitions. i think they are a way for people to think good about themselves. in this case they would be the people signing them. and howard shoults can say this. it is not saying republicans are stupid or democrats are idiots. it is saying hey, get your act together. i don't see a downside for this. >> if it is not going to do anything, tom, why is he doing? >> it is just pr. i think it is smart. i think schultz is a very smart guy. i don't think there is a downside to being a left wing

11:36 am
from her. so andy, what do you share with your significant other and did she have the responsibility to go to the authorities? >> first of all, he sounds like a hell of a boyfriend. hey babe, check me out getting a blood transfusion on my pry rate plane. he just assumed no one is ever going to tell on me because i'm lance armstrong. i don't think you can blame her for this. she couldn't lie to the federal investigators once they asked her and i don't think you could blame her for not saying anything prior to that. >> really? it was all out there tom that it was against the law to juice in all sport. >> you can't blame cheryl asher she was not going to be tray her
11:37 am
boyfriend. he should have done it the corleone way, don't ask me about my business. >> they were broken up. apparently she only told the authorities when they told her she would not be prosecuted. >> a lot of people knew. i had people say he does so much for cancer, let's turn the other way. but, a lot of hi popsy o pocksy there. i think there would have been more sympathy, but he's been more of a jerk post being clean. >> got to move onto the next topic. one of you at least has a wedding ring on and it is a good one. whoo-hoo. there is a new report out that men and women are sharing the costs of buying the ring because
11:38 am
we are in 2013. >> absolutely not. ladies, if your man can't afford the ring. if he asks you to pitch in for the ring walk away. >> charles charles charles itiss 2013 we let women work now. i think they even outearn men a lot of times. i think this is one of those things there is no wrong answer for this. it is fine if they split it. do what you like. it doesn't matter. >> when i was a single man, living like andy levy i thought the same thing. and then once i got engaged i realize the value of the diamond ring. that is preparing you for marriage. because, marriage is not all about love it is also about finances and everything else. when you get worried and you buy that ring it makes you think i'm making a commitment here.
11:39 am
it is more value for guys than it is for women. the bigger hit is when you get the rick back. >> it teaches you about marriage then you should split it. >> that is a good point but i'm telling you it is good for guys to have a a year before you get married. >> to save up. >> interesting perspective. gentlemen thank you so much. and check out charles bring on the way out. that is some bling. >> if you are like me, you probably wonder how do kids grow up so fast? these days they seem to be growing up too fast. coming up tough questions and answers about how we are raising our daughters and what we can do about it. >> plus the new gadget to protect against government snooping. ♪ why do i always feel like i'm
