As she was doing a PR tour for obamacare. A Florida TV station now reporting this as a channel nine. And. More backtracking from the Obama administration admitting that some Americans. Will pay more for health insurance. Under the Affordable Care Act. -- Florida news anchor during a visit to Miami HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Stop -- a local library. To talk to local residents about in rolling on the health insurance web site. You may remember when this happened. The TV station and try to do alive should they were doing a live shot their way that the biggest run up the website and crash. -- -- she also acknowledged that some people will pay higher premiums. Under obamacare should civilian us quote. There are some individuals who may be looking at increases. I think you cannot make a statement based on cost. Unless you compare what they had to what they're going into it. Well Jay thanks for explaining that -- you figure out of it costs more. Unbelievable. Then there is this. From the -- Seattle times -- away. On the foray out to grass are all let me to digress through this and the commander the -- latest poll numbers are out. Food -- food diet diet. President Barack Obama's ending his fifth year in office with the lowest approval ratings. At this point in a presidency. Since Richard -- house. I'm I'm not a -- Nixon. This according to a new Washington Post ABC news poll released today. Obama's approval rating in the -- stands at 43%. Are you kidding. How -- 43 well. I guess they're the ones that are you know. Get checks. By comparison president George W. Bush at a 47%. Approval rating at the end of the fifth year of his presidency and that's. After of course being up on mercifully beaten about the head and shoulders by the media. Yearly unemployment rate was 5%. Under bush. All other post war war to president -- a -- approval ratings above 50%. With the exception of tricky Dick who lament the Watergate scandal had a dreadful 29%. Approval rating the brutal numbers. Underscore what has been something of a lost year. For the president. Up to the president how the for the country have -- lost five years. For America. His approval ratings have been plunging recently as a result they botched implementation of the Affordable Care Act. In the Washington Post ABC poll. Only 34%. Approve of how Obama is handling his signature health law's implementation. There is this from the Seattle times. With the headline expanded Medicaid -- print wholesale prices. Payback. From the stage. After death. Again this. It wasn't the moonlight holiday season euphoria or family pressure. That made -- trends and Gary Bauer warned both 62. Suddenly decide to get married. It was the fine print. As fine print is want to do is -- buried itself from the along form. Now orange application for free health insurance through the expanded state Medicaid program. As they paperwork away on the dining room table and Port Townsend. Prince began rating. She was shocked if your 55 her over Medicaid can come back. After your dead and build your estate for health care expenses. The way prince saw it. That -- health insurance via Medicaid is hardly free. For Washington State residents 55 or older. It's a little. One whose pay back requirements. Are not well advertised well no kidding. You know if there's a used car salesman jolly good things about to throw rotten. And it penalizes people who despite having a low income have managed to keep a home or some savings they hope to pass on -- With an estimated 223000. Adults seeking health insurance headed toward Washington's expanded Medicaid program over the next three years. These states. Estate recovery rules which allow collection of nearly ball medical expenses have come under fire. Oh well although ribs then why don't like it because they suddenly discover there is no free lunch. Medicaid. In keeping with federal policy has along tapped into -- states. But because most low income adults without disabilities could not qualify. For typical medical coverage through Medicaid. Recovery primarily involved expenses were. Nursing homes and other long term care. However. The federal. On Affordable Care Act change that now many moral low income residents will qualify for Medicaid called Chapel Hill. In Washington State. They don't -- this these -- named -- Capitol Hill that just it sounds. Healthy. It was like places like North Korea always name themselves -- people's democratic republic. Right. However the story continues if they qualify for Medicaid. They're not eligible for tax credit's -- subsidized a private health plan under the Affordable Care Act which requires all adults to have health insurance by march 31. -- an artist and Alan -- he retired fisherman turned tango instructor. So poorly qualified for health insurance through Medicaid. Based on their soul -- comes. If they were married they calculated they could just week by. -- enough income to qualify for a subsidized health plan and avoid any incumbents on the home. They hope to leave to prince twin sons were happy to be getting married friend sent last week unfortunately not everyone has such an elegant solution of the problem. Don't worry the government as an elegant solution is come back and billions. You gotta love. I mentioned before the news. Of this if the district got a federal district court judge ruling yesterday judge Richard. Granted an injunction yesterday but also we should stay. About the NSA and they're spying programs though the suit was -- abroad by Larry claim. Who is the founder of judicial watch and has been on this program. Number of times. There is more on this case today that is very revealing. Jerry course Ian world -- at world net daily writing. The attorney who won a high profile federal court fight Monday with the NSA. Over it's invasive telephone call spy program says he was put under surveillance and more. By the agency when he filed the case. People began receiving emails from made that I had never sent. Claim until world net daily suggesting. Harassment in response to. The lawsuit that he brought. The government he said just one in -- know they were watching me. Claimants file the action on behalf of several points list. Seeking first -- preliminary injunction to prevent the federal government from damaging Americans further. US district judge Richard Leon granted the injunction Monday but also we should -- stay anticipating an immediate appeal from the government. Judge Leon wrote I cannot imagine a more indiscriminate and arbitrary invasion. Then this systematic and high tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen. For purposes of questioning it and analyzing it without judicial approval. The Justice Department in previous cases and most of these were brought before the flies a court. That's the the FY SE the foreign intelligence surveillance court which is secret. Nobody even knows where the the -- -- is argue I think it's in Washington. Argue that the information collected about the timing and width of calls the number of stalled and other details did not amount to a search. I don't know what I should call it. What being inquisitive -- we on the judge disagreed without argument. The -- equity of phones is dramatically altered the quantity of information that's now available and more importantly what that information can tell the government. About people's lives I cannot possibly navigate these uncharted. Fourth Amendment waters that's the course Fourth Amendment the constitution guards against illegal search and seizure. Using as my northstar a case that predates the rise of self. The a judge today what the government know there would be serious consequences. If the NSA continues to violate the rights of 300 million Americans claim and said. This was just the first case. I have cases filed in federal court against all other telephone providers this -- was brought against Verizon. All other telephone providers involved with the NSA in telephone surveillance in the USA. So apparently. Some money. Was writing emails. As mr. claimant. And and sending them out. And he believes that NSA was behind us. -- -- brought this case and in fact on behalf of Charles strange. That -- is the father of Michael strange they Krypton or just technician for the NSA and they support personnel member. For navy seal team six or -- group naval development special the -- special ops project's development. Strange was killed in Afghanistan when his helicopter was shot down in 2011. Charles strange -- -- subscriber Verizon Wireless brought the case against the NSA. The DOJ and several US officials including President Obama and attorney general holder. The complaint alleges the government with the participation of private telephone companies spent -- conducting a secret. -- illegal government scheme to intercept and analyze vast quantities of domestic. Telephone communications. Claimants said it's unbelievable but the American people -- now winning a horror story. Like this even George Orwell. The author of 1984. Could not have envisioned this outrage with hundreds of millions of Americans being spied on and coerced into submission by -- tyrannical government. He says. There's a great. Analogy. If this had been 1776. He said. Our founding fathers. Being considered subversive by king George the third. Would never made it to Philadelphia to debate and signed the declaration of independence they're communications would have been intercepted. And they would've been arrested and executed on the spot. Several other legal challenges to NSA spying are also pending including a demand by the American Civil Liberties Union. For the and -- NSA to stop its own record collection cases being heard in New York. So somebody was. In the government here left to assume. At the -- mediated it NSA. Was sending a bogus emails with. Through claimants account and -- his name -- film real nice. Twenty minutes after five let's check real time traffic again this afternoon. Any robards out sick today but that this -- is in and is keeping an eye on the commute for. Then thank senator and then simply 25 after 5 o'clock. -- -- Let's get to close in the second looks at the Spartanburg next and bring in -- here on the money national hi Dan Merry Christmas to me. You know while Merry Christmas to you -- all I know you're talking about probably quote though are -- Just the other day I was made aware of the -- -- old -- or an arm. And is a huge. Our common core supporters. Here and not only his feet. Personally but I guess you know -- corporation is taking the position has been very very strong common court should order. In fact I guess actually has very significant all the -- in this is -- Pennsylvania. And -- feel -- electron let's put some real heavy duty pressure. On the governor and more -- Pennsylvania. To follow through in the -- common core my suggestion is. If somebody isn't lying to -- gas a little yet I'm I would continue to drive. Yeah. I mean I'm not a big supporter board are right. But I will never buy another down on the Afghan national. -- -- -- -- -- -- Sure you know I'm I'm left to wonder Dan when we find. -- corporate CEO. Throwing the weight of their corporation behind a political program and -- I'm sure that he's well intentioned and I wonder how much. This gentleman actually knows about what's in common core I mean if he -- to read. A summer for its first and somebody suggested fiction was not suggestion some of the some of the reading. That that is zero common -- that that the youngsters are going to be subjected to not only just in high school but in middle school. Some of the stuff is the worst kind of pornography ever read and I wonder. Just what his level of information is about common core. Yeah they. I would agree that torture saying thank you know he's a big Democrat. Supporter -- I don't know what is really meant but I guess at that point there would be in the picture. If I can find it felt great you -- that anybody. Would support. Green educating. Kids. They're not. Very difficult we've been -- -- technical director -- 607080. Years sure. Schools sort of enterprise during a better job back then they're then they're doing today I think almost. And you know what all the additional are. Dudley and researcher and understanding. About what involved. In people learning. Is it just. I don't market beyond belief. There. Equality. Of education they're cute they're retreating today. Is actually what it is McCain I know for a fact -- -- -- it is like today it's been 95. I know for prayer. The the quality of elementary and high school education -- he got growing up and should call. We're surely there which appears to war. Being -- Well I was very fortunate because I grew up in the Northern Virginia suburbs and an Arlington Virginia and the high school that I went to. At the time was rated the number two in the country right behind a Brooklyn science -- and and I can assure you that via. They need the educational curricula they have then. -- substantially different then than today I mean in common core is that pointed out earlier to into doesn't even have to equal for. Well and then like in my own personal situation like I went through an area long term -- rural school. From one through grade eight. We had a total of 100 warning students. And we hit pretty he. Teachers might gamble all eight great. Game what other belt. The kid that came out of my school. We're definitely. Farther ahead. When we -- into junior high were -- ninth grade. We were definitely farther than what the public school period well that was fifty years. This is this is you know what this is what this reminds me of the same -- obamacare. Is not about health care. Right but is about government control common core is not about educating the kids it's about this is about instituting a secular humanist agenda. So they can continue to. Fill these kids hand with marsh. What about additional control. Sure it is sure and it's and it's -- -- you're right you you make a good point about next on I mean whatever the gentleman's. Rationale. For the doesn't really matter at this point it's it's the effect of what he's doing campers. And I appreciate the call very much eight. The closer you got to be have a great evening -- 531 is -- I'm going to break that here right back and more of your calls are on the way here on the body Mac show on Tuesday.

Why they could not read it are we cannot you know look at actually in the remote or right you know that's why. But never let them the second thing you wouldn't be right height 911 Michael Moore yes I did. You -- -- would be to make me euros Celsius. -- Or maybe just -- title itself.

All of this these the statements that this -- -- you know we won't and we're gonna. -- Finley go after the killers of our ambassador in Ben Ghazi. The outrage at the IRS going after these. Conservative groups who sought -- Tax exempt status and then turning around -- saying it would you know all these things are phony scandals. -- comedy wise does it take.

You know not right -- it like it is right read it. Yeah yeah all about you know poke somebody's innocent. Simple it could really take up everything now I'm not right are -- saying the math what they're teaching coming toward Mathisen.

Now that's incorrect sir if you read the curricula it's as if the student can justify. Their explanation. Then they answered does not have to be mathematically accurate. -- and it read for yourself you don't tell me what it says I'm no access. And I guess he thinks it's perfectly fine. To have as one of the questions. In common -- the good of the state. Outweighs the need of the individual. That's not political. To -- Yu -- who was in -- -- Eugene and welcome to the program.

Come -- and so are never certain nets in the bad you can't do that it was a law that something portal I'm a terror alert people essentially. Well how come Obama is constantly critical of Wall Street and greedy bankers and all the rest. And yet. Wall Street has given more money to Obama than any any other group you know and into the campaign -- look if you -- ahead of a major corporation like Exxon.

I'm I'm just -- got a very. Simple goal for one I would like to schools and I would like them to teach this group the kids how to think rather than watched the thing. Really important it is that too much to ask. -- reading writing and arithmetic. Or our power buy out was. Or hurtful eroded with the OO DA SR oh yeah -- yeah. Now let's step back Lindsey Graham has demanded. And then a couple -- -- it. -- could put redneck or you could wipe it. They -- George Strait sol ocean front property -- I I still.

Are you around here playing when he first what took so long. No I was not I I came to the upstate in 2002. It was a great representative for us. -- know I've had so many people tell me that -- he was a real conservative guy and stood by his principles rather than believing in principled compromise a series of statements Lisa. Well you know press trust or compromise out -- -- -- also. Literally -- bloat full underdog and. Well I'm I'm still trying to figure out. -- which principles you compromise I mean they're your core principles are on -- fringe principle there where are they there. No way I don't know what went well at its it's just like -- -- -- of the you know you know it could buy tickets so we count everybody battle BO yeah little. Day and night night is day. -- -- -- -- -- Cats and dogs living together. Thank you -- and I'll be a great holiday it's. Appreciate the gulf my fiftieth ten minutes now before six a check real time traffic this afternoon. Any robards is out sick but mr. and a -- and -- is filling -- -- -- -- Welcome back about three minutes remaining in the about him actually just say in response to that collar defendant math incoming -- and I was absolutely wrong. That two plus two does not have people for the they can -- something else obviously you know it's not just my opinion quote. The math standards focus is on investigative math which has been shown to be a disaster said Glenn Wright executive director of Eagle Forum. With a new math standards in common core. There are no longer absolute truths so three times more can now equal eleven so long as a student can effectively explain. How they reached an answer in quote. Stanford professor James know Graham the only mathematician on the common core validation committee. -- fuels to sign off on the math standards calling the whole thing quote. In large measure a political document. Hearing testimony he gave in May 2011 in which he advocated for Texas not to adopt. Common course standards quickly Hayward in -- -- high Haywood welcomed the -- -- -- Eco that you were there under that. At the opportunity that and then there a particular look at -- picture. She definitely support it as well we're special that was there. There -- -- exact. So the standout -- got the -- where she market are still what I let bad it lets them. You have to spend so I got a member China's huge struggle. -- -- It let me. Just if we turn out a generation of students the thing that -- had two plus two is not four and that three times four is eleven. How in the world are we gonna compete in the world. I'll get a little bit there and that it absolutely certain that we are better than most of -- should have been actually. -- Well yeah that's true that's true you know if you if you head of no baseline to work from that it can be whatever you want it to the end and you're -- that's secular humanism all over. -- that it doesn't it especially as -- -- the crop -- -- there. Let's approach the larger structures and the candidate who can't afford it certainly the -- wouldn't you deliberately. I bet I would I would be very surprised to know any of them because that that the teachers want their kids well educated of course they wanna be able to do their job well. I'm pretty sure you share that with me Haywood thank you very much are now they have a Merry Christmas. Got to wrap it up for the day. About tomorrow they midweek Wednesday edition of the -- measure thank you so much to be in a long today and every day. And now Merry Christmas one more time see tomorrow afternoon at three in the meantime. Countless.
