11:28 am
it's taken once-a-day, any time, and comes in a pen. and the needle is thin. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adultth type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat, fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®,

investigators say they have found a type of cockpit conversations of a russian aircraft that crashed killing all 50 people onboard. and several native american cold talkers receive iing congressional medals today. congratulations. college kids getting a first hand education now in obama care. many schools dropping health coverage for all students rather than offer plans. >> tell us what is happening there peter. >> gretchen, what is happening is that until recently all students were required to have some kind of health insurance. it was mandatory for everyone who went to school here.
11:31 am
more than half the campus was covered by a plan that cost $49 every semester. but only for $5,000 worth of coverage every incident. not enough to comply with the affordable care act. so the school looked and realized if they were going to continue offering a care it would cost $1800 a year they decided to cancel the plans. but some students say neither of those are good options for them. >> it puts me in a bind to which financial obligations i'm willing to honor. i'm not here on privilege. i have to pick and choose what
11:32 am
is priority and what is not. >> meanwhile there are students who are losing that coverage and think that the administration is doing the right thing. i think the university is doing the right thing. if they were to have that plan, there are still students it is a tough economic time. they are having trouble affording school to add on 1500% increase to the fees. it is asking them for a lot. we have also spoken to students here at bouie state who are on their parent's plans and nationally 7% of college students actually buy the plans that the school has cancelled. >> what is the school now saying? >> they say in the spring they asked students for feedback and the feedback favored getting rid
11:33 am
of those plans and the school told us this. quote cost conchscious in their choices. provisions in the new health care law avoid costs as they can be covered by parent's plans. the school tells us that there will be reps here from the state's exchange to help students who need to enroll soon sign up before the end of the commence ter. back to you. >> thank you for going back to the college campus. and we are learning new details following a stunneding report suggesting that a crucial job's report may have been manipulated before the 2012 national election. have we in anyway confirmed the post's reporting on this story? >> we were finally able to reach
11:34 am
the one source cited by the new york post who was named. he is a rye tiretired ke ed cen. he said that the story is in accura accurate. the columnist asked him if he could be quoted and he said he didn't want to be. the white house is dismissing the post claims that census workers deliberately faked unemployment numbers. >> that story is obviously misleading. i think a lot of people shed a lot of credibility in conspiracy theories last fall about rigged job's numbers. >> house republicans are taking
11:35 am
the allegations very seriously. >> this data came 30 days before the election. republicans were pounding on the fact that obama doesn't work. and 30 days before the election it did. so that begs the question did that really happen. >> yesterday house oversight sent a letter demanding all documents including e-mails related to the population survey to or from mr. buckman. it takes allegations of fraud very seriously. we carefully cross check to ensure the data's validity. we are aware of the media reports and our office is evaluating what action may be war ranned. it is important to note that he is retired in 2011.

they have the worst of us. they have these terrible officials look our generation is kind of a pop culture generation the same one that made snookie a star. >> he will be re-elected. >> do you agree with that? >> no way. this guy is a complete train wreck. there is a reason why i think so that those poll numbers are as good as they are. first of all, people are tired of politicians who seem fake. this guy has issues but he is not fake. >> he was probably elected based on his rool realness. ryan,fb0b is that right? do you think what david says is
11:38 am
true? >> he probably will be. what is interesting about these poll numbers. his likeablity. he called smoking crack an issue. >> look at his poor wife in this photo. >> she looks like she is about to bail in the middle. >> but the list goes on and on. >> why do the wives stay up there? >> come on ladies get it together. the man panel tells this get away from him the guy is a bum. >> florida congressman pleading guilty to a cocaine charge. quick to say though, he is sorry and he has a problem with alcohol. theyi ing telling the judge i'm sorry. i let my country down my family

11:40 am
bill clinton said that he didn't in hail but that was the first entre into oh we are going to talk about this stuff now. we elect people who admit to this stuff. could there be more of this coming? >> it is a bit of the sign of the times because we let ourselves be fooled by politicians. how about a question that is asked of all of us is there anything now or in your past that may embarrass us. try vetting your people and two, why do we accept cop into cocaine which you have to buy which is illegal and alcohol is legal. no excuse here, make a choice on who you want to represent you. if you think buying cocaine is

holyfield's ear 16 years after biting it off o. weird or right on? he we have heard about passengers being too fat to fly? pilots now? that required the fa to issue new requirements for pilots and air traffic controllers. trace gallagher in our newsroom. pilots are too fat now, too? >> the reason behind, this gretchen is that all obese people likely suffer from osa which is obstructive sleep apnea. the excess weight means that you lose sleep during a night you are not getting good enough sleep, that can affect your performance during the daytime hours. sleep apnea fall asleep without warning any given time. clearly if you are a pilot or air traffic controller that would be a safety risk. the report says and i'm quoting here it can cause daytime sleepiness, cardiac disrit me i writed me i can'ts. and hypertension to cite a few. the first people the faa
11:54 am
will ch pilots and air traffic controllers with a body mass index above 40 the bmi. bmi is your height divided by your weight. 40 is roughly 6 feet, 300 pounds. those people would have to be treated before they can fly again or get back in the air traffic control tower. we spoke to a sleep specialist who says he thinks the faa needs to be even more aggressive. listen to him. >> somebody with a bmi of 40 falls into the almost morbidly obese category. and we're almost assured that they have got sleep apnea. i think they need to go to people who have got the amount closer to 35 or 30. >> they are starting with people who are 40, gretchen. they are going to work their way down once they clear those people out to get to those though are are 35, 30 is like 6 feet, about 225 pounds. gretchen? >> so any response? i had no idea that this was going to be the angle of this. i thought it was because they couldn't fit in those

tight little areas of the cockpit. they are pretty tight. any response from the pilot's union? >> no. but you bet there will be. we contacted the pilot's union. the airlines haven't weighed. in i hate to use that term. but they haven't commented about this at all yet. the reasoning here is pilots working for long times. sitting down for long stretches of time and they need to be it alert. when you get down to the 35 and the 30 bmi levels you are going to effect a lot of pilots and air traffic controllers and the unions are definitely going to weigh in at some point in time. >> no doubt they are going to weigh in. thanks, trace. >> okay. >> students are often told sky is is the limit. one high school taking it much further. your thoughts on the supposed targets of the obamacare web site as well reportedly ignoring it and on the cost of health insurance these days, all your comments coming up next. plays a key role throughout our lives. one a day men's 50+ is a complete multivitamin
