but they are on message, they are more unified than the republicans. >> a unified message ignoring some elements. one of those reasons obamacare, one reason is the premium increases. the average monthly premiums from 2013, 476, the monthly premium in 2017. the premium increase, 105 since 2013. >> rhetoric is over the top. one of your guests earlier, how the rhetoric needs to dial down in general. it is surprising that president obama -- make these statements because he indicated he is not going to be the quiet
