tv Hannity FOX News October 17, 2013 7:00pm-8:01pm PDT
twitter is mean, isn't it? it's mean sometimes. but i still read it. follow us on twitter or check us out on facebook. thanks for watching, everybody. i'm megan kelly and this is "the kelly files." see you tomorrow. the government reopens its doors. >> first government shutdown in 17 years is now over. the good news is we'll bounce back from this. we always do. >> but the fight is far from over. could this be the end of liberalism as you know it. >> no, we're not going away and neither are the millions of americans who have joined this dialog dialogue. >> we're going to continue to fight until we actually see the will of the people prevail. >> this fight is not over. it's really only just begun. "hannity" starts right here, right now. >> welcome to "hannity."
the government may be back open for business, but responsible leadership, that remains shut out of washington, d.c. the spiral of decency, that left a long time ago. it's never been more apparent under one man's watch, and i say it's president obama. his arrogance fueled this shutdown. the president's inability to lead got us to this point, his radical idealogy, his cohorts, they need to be exposed for who and what they stand for. even though the old majority republican senators were too afraid to stand up, they sabotaged the guys in the house. we own this program, we'll stand up. we're not afraid. we've witnessed the recent days in the media, they're upset. they want to pick political winners and political losers. indeed, there were losers as a result of the shutdown, but it wasn't the tea party. it was you, the american people. you have now become victims of obama care, and while the house of representatives tried to
stand up for what was right, they were bulldozed and sent out in the cold by lawmakers who have spent far too much time in the beltway. here's one example of arizona senator john mccain violating the 11th commandment. watch this. >> i was standing there watching senator cruz as you were. he says he's standing there with the american people. the american people disapprove of republicans now by 74%. to tell american people that you can defund obama care was a fool's errand and a desepgs of the -- deception of the american people, and i resent that. after '95, we waited 20 years before we tried this experiment again. i hope it will be another 15 to 20 years before we try it again. >> what the senator failed to realize was the reason president cruz did what they did and the republicans did what they did was because you, the americans,
were sold a bill of goods what it came to obama care. nothing he promised is even close to what the reality is today. here is a small sampling of what it was you, the taxpayers, were promised. >> under the reform we're proposing, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. and if you do have health insurance, we'll help make sure that your insurance is more affordable and more secure. if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. this is not some government takeover. if you like your doctor, you can keep seeing your doctor. cost-cutting measures mirror most of the proposals in the current senate bill which reduces most people's premiums and brings down our deficit by up to $1 trillion over the next decade. >> you know what the problem is? none of that is even close to true. premiums are skyrocketing. employers are being forced to slash their employees' hours, and worse, every day there is
another tragic example of how this disastrous law is tearing apart american families, which is exactly why our president is now openly advocating for the s sensor ship of conservatism both on the air and on line. look at this. >> now that the conservatives are removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the bloggers and the talking heads on radio and the activists who prosper on conflict and concentrate on what the americans sent us here to do. and that's grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul. >> five years no growth, and by wait, this president lives on conflict himself. now, it's pretty revealing when the commander in chief tells you to stop listening to people like me simply for telling the truth. you don't have to take my word for it. i'm not making up facts or
twisting any numbers. for example, the heritage foundation, they crunched all the numbers and they calculated how much premiums are going to rise state-by-state under the new obama care exchanges. starting right now, you're going to see these dramatic hikes right there at the bottom of your screen for you, the american people, for example, ages 27 and 50. now, my next two guests are business owners who are being forced to rethink their hiring strategies, reduce their employees' hours all because of obama care. but the worst part about all of this is they both personally warn these lawmakers about the consequences earlier this month when they both testified on capitol hill, and yet our selfish lawmakers, that wasn't a part of this debate this last week and a half, two weeks, their pleas for help. well, when they voted last night, they were ignored. joining me now are the vice president of paul's supermarkets, steve herman and hauling junk owner.
steve herman, let me start with you. i found your story pretty interesting because both your grandfather and your father were in the supermarket business? >> correct, yes. yeah. and my grandfather started it in 1968. >> that's a pretty cool story. now, independent grocers account for, what, 25% of the entire supermarket industry right now? >> you are exactly right. >> and how many people work directly, how many people's jobs are we talking about in that industry, in that 25% of the sector? >> we account for 944,000 jobs, and that's, i think, $9 billion in wages. it's a staggering number. $30 million in wages, excuse me. i believe i'm off by that number. it's a big deal. >> talk about -- because this is real life scenario. we just played what the president promised. if you want your plan, you can keep your plan. the average family is going to
save $2500 a year. what is the reality you tried to warn congress about about the law? >> well, there is a couple things, and the way i look at it is i'm a simple guy, simple business guy here in the midwest, and i got to look at small parts of it that affect me huge. they have a new requirement of 30, and i didn't know what the full requirements were, but there is a cost increase of 10% just by employees that have to go on the health care. we're a family business. we take care of our employees, and we're going to do our best. the problem is looking toward the future in our hiring practices. also they have a 50 full-time employee equivalent, so if you have a 50 full-time employee equivale equivalent, which is a complicated calculation, you have to offer insurance also. as i talk to people in the community that are right at that threshold, they say, i may have to close my business down, so if they close their business down,
i have less people shopping in my grocery store. it's just a cyclic effect and it goes across the board. that's what we went on was the 30 full-time, and i think that's common sense. >> i've worked in the restaurant business for a lot of years. when i was a kid, i was a dishwasher at 12, cook, buser, waiter, i did it all. there are razor thin margins. you don't have a lot of room for play in there. am i pretty accurate about that? it's so competitive? >> you're very accurate on that. we have a 1.6 profit margin. our health care counts for two-thirds of all that. you look at a 1% cost in health care going out the door right there, and we've offered that. we didn't need the government to tell us how to take care of our employees, we already do take care of our employees. >> bottom line, you didn't have to reduce employees' hours? are you going to have to let some people go? >> well, the thing is, like i say, we're a family business, so we're going to take care of
people that have been with us and worked hard for us. i think you take care of people that take care of you. the issue is looking forward into the future. how are we going to handle it right now taking care of employees that have been with us? talk about charities. we have a title i district which means a 50% reduced lunch and we have a buddy pack program. the buddy pack program used to be funded by the government, which was a great thing, it gave students food on the weekends. it's not there anymore. they're just going to continue to hurt people. there are economists and people up on the hill that model these things. they don't come down to where the real things happen. >> steve bianco, i get a kick out of this. hauling kids' junk mover owner? how many years? >> three years. we're a new start-up. >> how many people work for you? >> 72 people overall. >> you went to congress. you said it's a serious threat, obama care, to your company. >> as a former cadet to the
united states academy and state trooper, i truly believe in the american dream. i believe in the prosperity and the opportunity that's presented to us, and our obligation as citizens to help people establish that. i'm now trying to do that as a business owner, as an entrepreneur. i was only open three years and having a mandate placed on us during our biggest growth period, this is when we are trying to hire the most people, have them help us and grow, and most importantly, bring them on culturally into our culture, it's destroying that. it presents that failing opportunity where we can surely provide a culture for them. >> are you going to have to hire people as independent contractors? what are you going to have to do? >> not so much independent contractors, but definitely a reduction in hours. >> you have to get them below 30. >> we're going to have to. in order for us to grow properly, we're not going to be able to afford it. we need every inch we can possibly get in our profit
margins in order to help us continue to grow. we're going to have to reduce those individuals who come to us for 30 to 48 hours. >> you want to give them more hours. >> we want to. that's what helps us grow, that's what helps america grow. >> i couldn't work for you. >> you could. >> i have gray hair and i'm old and fat. >> somebody would think you're a hunk. >> if you have an independent contractor it still goes through the calculations, so it doesn't help you out. they have so many calculations in there. >> can't even get out of that. >> yeah, it's a mess. >> this is why the house republicans fought for you guys. this is why cruz got up there for 21 hours and 19 minutes. we've got a lot more coming up right here tonight on "hannity." >> i hope they're working day and night to get it done, and when they get it fixed, i hope
they fire who was in charge of making sure it worked. >> here is something i may never say again. i actually agree with robert gibbs. a lot of people should be handed pink slips, including kathleen death panel sebelius because of the rollout and the train wreck that it is, because tlhere is a new report that only 1% that visited healthcare.gov actually enrolled. turn out for a student edition of "hannity," our greatest yet. we're going to talk about last night's deal and the fireworks that followed, here on "hannity."

this was not just too many people came to the website, this was a website architectural problem. i hope they workday and night to get it done, and when they get it fixed, i hope they fire whoever was in charge of getting it fixed. these are glitches that go, quite frankly, way beyond the pa pale of what should be expected. >> there you have it. even former press secretary robert gibbs cannot defend his old boss's master plan. while obama care may live, will anything come to an end because of the disastrous rollout of the law? we're learning that the 9 million people who tried to visit the site, only 1% of the visitors actually enrolled in the exchanges during week one. as pathetic as this is, my guess is secretary sebelius and her bureaucratic millions will be just fine, especially if our arrogant leader has anything to do with it.
by the way, on the bottom of our screen, you'll see just how much your premiums are rising state-by-state as you look at the obama care exchanges and the cost to you. here with reaction, democratic strategist steve mcmann. dana lash is back with us. steve, pick any company, apple, any company. they spent $364 million, have three years to put together a rollout, and it's to quote robert, excruciatingly bungled badly. wouldn't you fire somebody? isn't that what you would do? >> somebody should be held accountable, absolutely. you spend three years planning it, someone does it. i don't think kathleen sebelius was in charge of the architecture. i think it was a democrat bureaucrat somewhere, and they should be held accountable. the accountability should
perhaps go up to who manages those people. perhaps she is responsible. i'm not here to judge, all i can say is this rollout did not go as planned and someone should be held accountable. >> only the government could screw it up this bad. you can't even make this up, it's so awful. >> and it gets even worse. not only was this -- this was outsourced to a canadian i.t. firm. you could have had a united states firm just kind of do it half effort and come out with the same results. now what the weekly standard reported was that they discovered the code was actually just open source code, and now there could be a suit filed against hhs because they stripped out the copyright from this code. you're supposed to give courtesy when you use open source software like that. they stripped out the copyright, that's the exchange for it, so now hhs will be in trouble. if there is a lawsuit against health and human services, shawn, who is going to foot the bill for that? taxpayers? who is going to foot the bill to fix all the glitches? >> who is footing the bill for
the $24 billion of the shutdown that cost the gdp? >> that's a nice goalpost move, but no. >> at the bottom of the screen, we have the premium percentage increase in cost. the president, 45 out of 50 states going up as high as 250%. the sticker shock is staggering for americans. tell me why, now that it is so different than the $2500 savings that the president promised, why shouldn't we put this off a year and see if america really wants it and really debate it now that the facts are so different than the way he sold it? >> look, if the republicans want to litigate -- relitigate again obama care, the democrats are actually saying bring it on. you lost nine points -- >> steve, i'm asking, look at these increases. oklahoma. if you're 27 years old, 50% increase in your premium. >> shawn, i went on the other day and i actually did this for myself. the premium for a 27-year-old, who i was sitting next to as i
did this, was $250 a month. it's a high deductible, but it gets people in. >> if you're young, you're going to pay a little bit more. but if you're older and you have a preexisting condition, you're going to be able to get insurance. if you're a woman, you're not going to be able to be discriminated against. if you're a kid under 26, you can stay on our parents' policy. >> steve, you give me all the talking points i gave you. >> those are the facts. >> the facts are on the bottom of the screen. 45 out of 50 states, enrollees 27 years old and 50 years old, they're paying dramatically more and they're not saving anything that the president promised. none of them are. >> exactly. it's a one size fit all. regardless of what your health insurance needs are, you're going to get this and you're going to like it. the biggest thing for me is that the mill enials are going to ge
screwed out of this. they need them to make this program solvent. it's the biggest bait and switch i've ever seen aside from social security that obama care is carrying out here over the younger generation. and in st. louis, sean, in my city alone, because of obama care, we have a ton of people who have blue cross/blue shield in st. louis. the hospital, b jc, a big health system here, all the best hospitals, the cancer center, they're not now able to go to those hospitals because they're not in the obama care exchanges. so people who are getting cancer treatment in the city of st. louis, they don't have access to a cancer center. it is absolutely true. this is the city in which i live. >> one of the first -- >> it's absolutely true. it's not in the exchange. >> have you been to the website? one of the first questions is, do you want to keep -- >> i heard a spokesman who had a press conference and stated it. >> you have a computer. you can go on, right?
healthcare.gov. the first question -- >> go look at what the bbc spokesman said. are you calling him a liar. >> go on the website. >> i can't even log onto the web sy. it doesn't work. go on a website that doesn't work. is that why less than 55,000 people actually enrolled? >> they can't get on. that's the problem. they can't get on. >> i got on yesterday. just log on right now. go ahead. all the viewers out there, log on right now. >> we've logged on three times on the air and we can't get in. three times. cbs news tried it this morning, they couldn't get on. >> i've tried it for a week. the bottom line is that in st. louis, bjc isn't participating. >> it works perfectly. i'm not going to sit here and say that nobody should be held accountable, but what i will say is if you have cancer and you want to go to a cancer facility, you can now get insurance and before you couldn't because it
was a preexisting condition. >> you can't in st. louis. if you have blue cross/blue shield, you can't. >> you need to look at the reality and forget the talking points, because it's the reality -- >> the reality is the talking points. i was on the website yesterday. >> you're apparently the only guy that got through. congratulations, you're in. >> he gets paid to say that. >> coming up next, bill cunningham and our lively student panel. they're going to grade the president's handling of the recent crisis in d.c., and that's not all. the return of frank lund's focus group. they're not happy with their elected representatives, and they'll tell us why. and tcoming up later -- >> within a decade, i had prisons overflowing, i had judges promoting pornography. soon i could evict god from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, then from the houses of congress. >> the legendary paul harvey's adaptation of the message to america. the relevance today will leave you speechless.

ramped-up rhetoric wii heae've from the left. they pulled out the race card. let's just say so-called journalist called bernstein had this to say about the gop. >> the republican party today has become a rabid organization. we have to go back to the party, the democratic party of segregation to find this kind of scorched earth politics putting the national interests nowhere and putting idealogy and idealogy above all else. >> chris matthews-itis. that remark came just one day after liberal lawmaker charlie rangel likened republicans to confederates trying to tear down the government. watch this. >> this isn't a question of the house and senate differing, this is not even a question of republicans and democrats differing. this is all about a handful of people who got elected as republicans that want to bring down our government. you can see it in the streets, you can see where they're coming
from, and the same way they fought as confederates, they want to bring down the government reformant. >> joining us now, radio and tv talk show host tom compton, and mike meyers, and the news director at the tea party news network, scotty hughes. billy cunningham, this rhetoric, striking bombs, blackmail, terrorists, extortion? >> remember the tone was going to change when he got elected. he was coming to washington to change the hateful tone. he exacerbated it. i projectile vomited and explosive diarrhea. and it happened simultaneously. i can't take it anymore. i'm watching this guy, and he lies so easily and so well. >> he's good at it. >> he's an expert. and why won't the media cover the real story, chwhich is the deficit! the deficit! >> spending.

ted cruz thanked the house republicans led by my friend john boehner. go after mccain. >> here's what i think we're seeing in all of this is a case of jealousy. mccain was jealous of cruz, because cruz ran on a platform, performed what he promised and the american people liked it. right there john mccain was upset because he's tried this all along. >> i think there are two consequences. one, i think this is inevitable it's going to fail. democrats, lock, stock and barrel, they own it, so conservatism is going to win in the end. there is a new conservative leadership emerging -- >> you have to make an argument. you have to have a campaign, not a stunt on the house of the senate floor. >> that wasn't a stunt. >> it was a stunt because it wasn't a parliamentary maneuver. and i love ted cruz. it was a stunt. but you have to have a public information campaign to show the american people that they got
exemptions and waivers for obama's cronies but not for you. >> they do a good job of telling their plan and what they're going to do. we saw none of that out of the republican leadership. we saw none of that out of the rnc. that's why we're in the chaos we are today. >> ryan purvis actually stood in the house and stood with cruz and he got beaten up. the people who sabotaged, the john mccains, they were the worst. >> i'll make the argument maybe the republican party won and we won't find out for a year. >> conservatives who stood out won. >> the american people lost. >> they don't know how to fight. we wrote a letter to cnn saying, what kind of news anchor do you have who goes on black talk radio and calls the republican party the voice -- >> two separate things.
ryan is a goodma man, rnc is no. >> i think there will be a new conservative majority and you'll see it. coming up next, we've heard what the politicians say. what about hardworking, law-abiding, taxpaying great americans, what do they think about this state of government? a bipartisan focus group of voters that he's yelling at right now, getting prepared to come on. we're going to get insight of what we think. that's coming up next. and later on tonight. >> if i were the did he feel did he feel, i would encourage schools and just let those run wild. before you knew it, you would have to have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door. >> paul harvey, his prophetic and chilling prediction. it's tonight's video of the day. we're going to play it for you in its entirety at the end of the show. don't forget, we always want to

welcome back to "hannity" now. throughout the entire shutdown, the left wing and their cohorts used every worn-out trick in the book to try to dehumanize members of the tea party, but did the americans see past the lies and the low blow rhetoric? our own frank lunts is in the nation's capitol. he has a bipartisan group of voters. frank, did they see through the an arcist, blackmailing, did they cut through that rhetoric? >> sean, i feel like you just pushed the source on your computer. i don't know how happy you're going to be with what they have to say because, all of you, on the count of three, who do you blame most for what happened over the past few weeks? you ready? one, two, now.
>> i don't hear it. give me a word or phrase to describe congress. >> dysfunctiondysfunctional, im spoiled. >> babies. >> knuckleheads. >> give a me a word or phrase to describe president obama. >> resolute. >> unbending, uncompromising. >> do any of you blame them all? raise your hands. >> yes. >> this is an important question. how many of you would throw them all out if you could, all of them? why? >> because they're not working together. they aren't making any sense. they're just fighting. >> how are they supposed to work together? >> compromise. everybody has to give up something. >> you would throw them all out? >> yes. >> why? >> because they're not representing what the majority of the people want. >> what do the majority of the people want? >> the majority of the people want a government that works, they want laws that they believe in, and i guess really there is a divide in this country, so that's a big problem. >> i think congress, both houses
are in need of structural reform. i think olympia snow has put forth an idea which really makes a lot of sense, that they should work two weeks on and one week off instead of having six weeks off for recesses and not really getting anything done on a current three-day week. >> i think the senate terms need to be shorter. they are too complacent for six years. >> but none of that is going to happen. >> i think if you're going isto bet get rid of structural reform, you need to go back to the people who construct it. >> who blames congress more? who blames the president more? is there anyone here who voted for mitt romney but you blame congress more? tell me why. >> because the easiest way to let obama care go away is to let it work because it's completely
dysfunctional and it will collapse on its own. >> one thing i want to ask everybody, we're scrolling on the bottom of the screen tonight throughout the hour the increased premium cost. 45 of the 50 states, dramatic increases for 27-year-olds, 50-year-olds that was put up there. the president promised certain things about obama care. $2500 savings, it's going to be on average $75-100 increase a year. it's costing three times what the president told us it would cost. a lot of people can't keep their own doctors. do most people agree, understand that this was -- this is nothing like the way it was sold to them? >> yes. >> you agree with that. it was a bait and switch program, but nobody knew what was going to happen until they rolled it out. >> during the whole when he was running for president and he was debating against hillary clinton and john edwards, he criticized them and ran attack ads for their support on an individual mandate, then he goes to the president, he signs it into law,
he defends it in the supreme court and then he's willing to shut the government down in order to keep it. >> so you're saying he shut the government down just to keep the law on the books. >> i believe so. he said, i'm not negotiating under my signature law. >> but the cost of health care is going down. there are changes that are going on within society. >> how can you say that when so many people are reporting that their premiums have gone up hundreds and thousands of dollars. that makes absolutely no sense. >> but the cost of total health care. >> the premiums went down as well, so it goes both ways. i heard him say that, it doesn't make it true. >> i just want to make a point, sean. the moment you got to obama care is when the group erupts. the moment you talk about health care is when everything divides. >> i have to take a break, but i promise we'll come back to you. 45 or 50 states, premiums are going up and they're going up dramatically. that seems to have gotten lost in all of this because people are going to suffer and it's nothing like what they were

welcome back to "hannity." we continue with frank lunts and his focus group, bipartisan group of americans. frank, i have one question and then i'll let you take it from here. i am very concerned about we're 17 trillion in debt, 90 trillion in unfunded liabilities we'll have to pay out, obligations we put on the books. we're robbing our kids blind. every worker in america owes
$123,000. there's the plan out there called the penny plan. i think ilt's a great solution. cut one cent of every dollar the government is going to spend every year for five years. how many would support that idea? i'm just curious, because it's a bipartisan group. lo look. >> look at this, sean. you got almost everybody. but mike wants to challenge you on something. >> you put out the costs of the affordable care act and the people involved, and my question is where did you get those statistics from? there have been a number of statistics that depending on the source, they've been conflicting. it's easy to throw out -- >> the average increase per premium is going to be $7500. >> is it actually accurate? >> the heritage foundation, as we said at the beginning of the 27-year-oldy analyzed the adult and for a 50-year-old adult, and i have moran he ce n
can -- anecdotes than i could possibly say. >> they were expecting 30 million young people or so to sign up for it. these people don't necessarily think they need it, don't want it and they're finding out. >> that's their choice. am i wrong? >> you can't expect a new entitlement program that's passed with one-party support to be accepted by the entire country. you just can't do it. he had the chance to compromise when obama care was created at the very beginning and he said, no, it's this way or the highway, and what was nancy pelosi's quote? you have to pass it to know what's in it. >> how can it have been passed if all the people who sit in congress, who have the opportunity to review the law, to look at all the various t tenets of the law, including
that it was upheld by the court. these are some people that were bright enough to look at some of the issues with respect to this law. >> i honestly believe we as americans before this? >> wait until the policy get well. drop the policy. i have a question. that is -- . >> ron, nicole, kevin you voted for obama. can america afford his health care plan? over the long term? we're an aging country. >> i seem to like social security and medicare. it's going to have to be tweaked. they're talking about these titlement changes that are going to have to be down to social security. it's going to have to change.
give it time. >> i think obama care bends the cost curve so premiums are cheaper. >> but they're not. >> 25 of the 50 states are raising premiums. >> because care is higher than given in high deductible plan autos sean he's in my ear yelling no, they're not. more expensive. >> with coverage you're get something. >> it's not true. >> with coverage the snaim. >> it's what is based on republican plan. >> that is not true. deductibles going higher, premiums going higher, people are not going to get care they want. people don't realize how bad this is. they don't. >> this the -- consider the system we've had which has been the disaster. we have the 43 best health care in the world. >> how many voted for obama. raise your hand. sean what happened is that people who voted for barack obama don't support this plan this, debate ain't over. just because the government is
