intimidated by the pretty ones. >> who would want to be selected as the average, ugly woman to be part of the armed forces if they know that is part of the criteria. good point. >> hope you have a great day. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. >> bye. good morning. it is thursday, november 21, 2013. do you like your health care plan? well, you might not. brand-new details on the latest obamacare bombshell moments away. >> imagine you're 35,000 feet in the air and the emergency slide deploys inside the airplane like that right there. how in the world did that actually happen? >> the army wants you to be all that you can be except pretty. are some women just too hot to pack heat? >> is that your question or somebody else's? >> he's been writing that all morning.
>> if i could do it again, i probably wouldn't have said that. "fox & friends" starts now. ♪ ♪ >> it's "fox & friends." >> the question should be the army says we should have average -- according to a secret e-mail, the army is saying women in make and combat. >> we're going to talk about the colonel who sent that e-mail out there. >> this is going to get our facebook page going too. >> in the meantime let's talk about what is up with obamacare. >> i heard it's all better now, up and running. >> they fixed the website and everybody is really happy. >> good. >> everybody is really tired because they were up late last night. a late-night meeting with insurers to get them to try to fix what's going on. president obama met with them yesterday and the insurance commissioners
left the meeting we thought with some information, but nothing seems to have changed. regulators apparently will continue to decide on their own whether to go along with the recent proposal and let their -- let the people in their states continue to opt in or opt out. or if the insurance policy is going to drop them. >> remember last week the president said didn't intend for all these millions of people to lose their insurance so i'm going to come up with this insurance fix where if you've got one of these subpar, lousy insurance policies you can extend it for a year. so he called the insurance commissioners in. only three states showed up. louisiana, north carolina and connecticut and that's it. it was a little awkward because apparently a number of states were not invited. others decided not to come. essentially this is what he said. this is what i want to do. here's what they said. it is an interesting proposition, mr. president, but we spent three years coming up with this other plan. we don't think this is going to work. here's the louisiana state
insurance commissioner jim donelon. >> he acknowledged each state has to do what it tkpaoepls appropriate and what -- deems appropriate and what its law requires relative to implementation. we had a great dialogue, no doubt about that. but we also came away agreeing that there was a lot of difference of opinion as to whether or not we can or should do what he urged us to do last week. >> they had the meeting. they loved being in the white house, probably got a tour. in the end they have to watch out for their own backsides and their own private companies. they warned the president, what he's proposing now would amount to different rules and different policies, might result in higher premiums, not good for you and you, without underlying concerns for gaps in coverage. florida likes it. it allows people to renew their coverage. in indiana they say they will adopt the president's proposal. new york said tpho*efplt
california is to announce its decision on thursday. more states are saying we'll worry about it on our own. this is such a mess, unquantifiable to even drill down on how bad this is. the insurance companies are now in the middle. and don't you feel as though this is their opportunity to push back after being the battering ram for the president over the last three and a half years? the insurance companies, the bad insurance companies are ruining everything, driving up health care costs and now they look to be the bad guys. thankfully, the president's effort last week to deflect some of the blame to insurance companies doesn't seem to be sticking with the average americans. even among democrats, a new poll came out by cbs, 84% of democrats want to see obamacare altered or repealed. >> you know one of them actually is congressman john barrow from georgia. he was on greta last night. he was saying we don't have a choice here. you have to repeal, rerepeal the individual mandate, repeal the employer mandate. at the very least delay. take a listen.
>> i think we have folks more interested in defending what they have done than they are in trying to focus on the problems at hand. that needs to change. we need to r individual mandate, the employer mandate. if you can't do those at least delay them so we can mend this thing and get out from under it. >> you're not going to get any revenue. >> you will get revenue. you don't get enough. the whole thing collapses. over the last month or so we've been talking about how about five million americans are going to lose their insurance through the individual marketplace where small businesses they go out and buy it for their less than 50 employees. here apparently is something you've got to worry about, all of us. do you get your health care through your job? most americans do. according to the american enterprise institute, coming up about a year from right now, between 50 million and 100 million americans who get their insurance through work, maybe like you, are going
to lose it because it does not come up to the standard of the affordable care act. that's the next wave. that's just the preview of coming attractions. i was thinking about this this morning. all these things we've been talking about over the last month about how it's been going haywire since the website went on, the republicans have warned us for years that this was going to happen. a lot of channels haven't talked about it. we've had a lot of voices saying this is going to happen and that could explain why now it seems like everybody, all the news media are reporting the fact that the president essentially sold us a bill of goods. brian, you were talking about a new cbs poll shows that the president's approval rating right now is the lowest it has been in his presidency. he has lost nine points in one month. >> and this is, could explain why a d.c. congressman in speaking out as a democrat really for the people that are going to be suffering, 50 million to 100 million people set
to possibly lose insurance. as stoupbgd. rush limbaugh says that approval rating you just discussed, listen to his just astute take on why this is happening, why it is significant. because this is not a president that has had a media that's been unfair to him. >> like president bush had, had his approval rating driven down by four to five years of constant hammering. here's rush on the differences. >> this is all on obama. this is, people aren't feeling this way because they have been told. here's the thing, folks. this is why this matters. you and i know that george w. bush approval number, 36%, 37% took the media four years to get it there. the george w. bush approval number was the result of four years of relentless, unstoppable media pounding. the media drove that approval number of george bush down to 36%.
the heed i can't did not -- the media did not drive this down. obama's 37% approval is all on obama. >> for those people who think every democrat is like that congressman you just brought up, keep in mind, two days ago nancy pelosi said stand tall behind the obamacare act. david plouffe said republicans would be crazy, impossibility they would run against obamacare. debbie wasserman schultz said it is something we will run proudly on in 2014. i don't know if that statement will last more than a week. lani davis last night said don't blame president obama because we all thought this would work and now it doesn't work. don't blame president obama? are you kidding me? >> there are other barrows, other feinsteins who have the mansions out there who are getting out there listening to the people within their state and voicing the concern.
maybe late but better late than never. >> absolutely. thank you for joining us on this thursday morning. we got a lot of news here from the couch. we got a lot of news over there. >> we're going to call these headlines your airport edition. good morning to you, a giant plane lands at the wrong airport and now it's stuck there. the reason? the plane is simply too big to take off and the runway is too short. the drama is playing out at an airport in wichita, kansas. steve, this is a story for you. the cargo plane is a boeing 747 and was supposed to land at the air force base in kansas but landed at the smaller airport instead. no one is saying why this happened. this plane needs more than 9,000 feet to take off. the runway is about 6,000 feet long. boeing is trying to figure out how to handle this situation, what to do next.
you can tweet us. terrifying moments at another airport. take a look at this. an emergency slide in place in the middle of a flight inside the cabin. it knocked over a flight attendant when it blew up. this was on a flight from fort myers, florida, to boston. take a listen. >> all of a sudden there was a big noise and then it blew up like, you know. it was -- it was scary, a little scary. >> we were all startled. >> i bet that's scary. that flight attendant is okay. the plane made an emergency landing in orlando. no word on why that chute deployed. florida congressman tray radal saying he is not going to step down. instead he's going to take a leave of absence to get treatment for substance abuse. >> i am being held accountable for decisions i
made in my life. i found treatment and i am working on treatment. like anything in life, i have to rebuild that trust and i fully understand that and i will do that. radel says he will donate his salary to charity during his leave. an incredible photo of a fireball shooting over the sky. this happened in portland, oregon. a lot of people are asking what was this thing. some experts say it was a fireball caused by a meteor. others believe it was one of those clouds left by planes after they go by. the last month there was another fireball that streaked through the sky. thousands of meteors fly through the earth's atmosphere every day but most of them aren't visible to us. those are your headlines. >> that's a boeing based in kansas. it might have been doing what? >> going to get fixed up. they rehab a lot of planes, they have historically in wichita. they only landed ten miles
short of the actual runway. >> oops. >> great update, heather. thanks. coming up, good news, you can keep your health care plan. the bad news? it's going to cost you try 25% more. why is the president calling it a fix? stuart varney on next to talk about that. >> hello, stu. >> then this is not your average traffic stop which former baseball star just got pulled over with a goat wearing a diaper? another goat diaper story coming your way. ♪ ♪

>> that's right. in a statement, the group said state insurance regulators stress their concern that different rules for different policies would be detrimental and could result in higher premiums for consumers. >> is the president's fix a fix at all? stuart varney here with the details. last week you were critical. now the insurance commissioners are coming in and saying it is not practical. >> not a fix. in north carolina those that have had their plans canceled are now being told you can keep your plan for one more year, but you will pay a lot more for that same plan. 16% to 24% more. i put it to you, that's not a fix. you can keep your plan but you've got to pay a whole lot more for it. >> sounds like a penalty if you keep your plan. >> you're renting your plan. >> it adds to the chaos and confusion of what amounts to a rolling collapse.
reuters did a poll of state insurance commissioners, what's the state of play across the country. nine states said you can keep your plan but we don't know at what price. four states will not allow to you keep your plan. where do you stand? if you're out there and your plan's been canceled, you don't know where you are. >> chaos? >> chaos is the exact word to do. >> i beg to differ with you. it is a fix for president obama. his ratings are going into the cellar and his political team said we've got to do something. so he said if you've got that thing, i'm going to fix it and you can kick it down the road for a year. >> i beg to differ because it is not a political fix when consumers find out i can keep the plan but i've got to pay a whole lot more for it. that is why it is a failure. >> here is why i say it is a fix. all the media coverage said
last week the president is addressing the problem. how many news outlets are doing this story you're doing right now that you don't know whether or not you can keep it and your rates are going to jack up. >> it doesn't matter because nobody is watching them. they're watching steve, elisabeth, and brian. >> here's what you're forgetting. when the c.b.o. got this policy they say it is going to be deficit neutral and everybody said wait, maybe the president is right. now he's giving waivers to the unions, giving special supplements there, put a waiver on the deploy mandate. now people are calling for a waeufrb on the individual mandate. there is no way that skewed equation is going to get close to balancing out. the other story is going to be the cascade of dollars going into our debt pile. >> yes it is. because the cost to taxpayers of obamacare just keeps on rising. there are constant additions to the cost that the taxpayer has to pay. >> you called it on this show and on your show which by the way airs at 9:20 eastern time. i checked the rundown time. >> 9:20 eastern, everyone.

women in combat causing an ugly fight. since the colonel posted these comments. in general, ugly women are perceived as competent while pretty women are perceived as having to use their looks to get ahead. she's speaking in terms of the advertising they're having. she says when we show pictures to try to get women involved in combat we should be using maybe a less pretty picture because it might give the wrong idea. >> i guess what she's saying is in battle in real life, in iraq and afghanistan they didn't put on makeup and they're not doing their nails and they shouldn't be showing lip gloss on these ads. i feel for her because she's just trying to get the, trying to adapt to some rules that some bureaucrats gave her, number one. and this was not supposed to be public. this was an internal e-mail that was exposed. this colonel probably served brilliantly and trying to present a female image of one in combat

debate. you said the public doesn't have any idea how many deals were cut on this? >> it was like a pie. everybody took a slice of the pie. the a.m.a. >> you watched this? >> you're there and you see this carousel of people coming in and out and none of the folks who come in and out are you and i. everybody got a piece of the pie but that pie was jammed in your face. look what's happening right now. i think i had an obligation at some point to say something. >> are you going to run for offers? >> i'm running now maryland sixth district. it will kind of be our last time. we're kind of sick of politics. >> your book is out. dan bongino, thanks for joining us. 11 minutes before the top of the hour. in america, you can't have a government without an election; right? what happens to the small town that forgot to hold a vote? then, pop quiz. what did more damage? the government shutdown or the botched obamacare
rollout? judge napolitano has that answer and hopefully a little bit more. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] there will be more powerful storms. ♪ that's why there's new duracell quantum. only duracell quantum has a hi-density core. and that means more fuel, more power, more performance than the next leading brand. new duracell quantu trusted everywhere.
the obamacare rollout since october 1 comes right on the heels of a partial government slimdown or shutdown. but here is a pop quiz, which one was more harmful to our personal freedom? the shutdown or obamacare? let's talk to our senior judicial analyst, judge andrew napolitano. >> part of my job is to write this column every thursday. i was thinking about how the
democrats and the main stream media went wild, went berserk overt shutdown. you won't be able to fly. the country won't have defenses, you'll never get your case heard. and the biggest inconvenience was a couple hundred well intended people trying to get into national parks and monuments and the government closed them. fast forward to what happened with obamacare in the past three weeks. 5,500,000 innocent americans were told they won't have health insurance on january 1 because the insurance companies that they used cannot afford the high end, one size fits all policy that the government has dictated we all must have. >> you know what? it's all part of the main stream media narrative about this president. and for the most part, the other channels haven't even touched the perils of obamacare. we've been talking about it here on the channel. we've had many voices such as
yours describing the trouble ahead. how many millions of people have been canceled so far and whatever number it is, it's going to moment ply by ten or 20 in the next year. >> it is because it's going to strike small business. so small businesses have been told that by january 1, 2015, a little bit more than a year from now, you have to provide your employees with these platinum programs. if you can't afford it, cancel it and let your employees go into the exchanges. try and get into the exchanges and you can't do it. so the government has put people into a bind. it has ordered their carriers to provide a product the carriers can't afford or their employers can't afford, and it has failed to make that product available in any other source. what's the natural result? no health insurance. the opposite of what the government claimed it was going to do. >> in answer to your pop quiz, when given the two, which was worse for people, the shutdown or was it obamacare, clearly obamacare. >> not even a close call.
my heart goes out to those 5,500,000 people. it's almost thanksgiving. >> so far. >> correct. it's almost thanksgiving. if they need a doctor from january 1 on, they're going to pay out of their pockets. and they can't get a policy between now and then. this is what happens when the government dictates to us what kind of a policy we have to have rather than we choose our policy based upon what we can afford. >> oh, man. >> i have a feeling this is going to keep going on, steve. >> i do, too. this is just the tip of the iceberg. >> yes. >> judge, we'll be reading your column at foxnews.com. >> thanks. >> coming up, she called people who are against president obama racist. colonel allen west firing back this morning at oprah. and call it a tough break. a reporter face plants on live tv. ♪

we know we're not the center of your life, but we'll do our best to help you connect to what is. good morning. it's thursday, november 21, 2013. a breaking story overnight. massive plane lands at the wrong airport and now it's stuck. the runway is too short for it to take off. start paving. she may have a lot of money and a bunch of emmys, but is oprah a march for determine allen west? what he's saying after she called people who are against the president racist. your serve, steve. >> thank you very much. remember this, bob costas talking politics at half time? >> hand guns do not enhance our safety. they exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it. >> he took a lot of heat for that.
but get ready for some more from costas. we're going to explain hour two for thursday live from new york, right now. >> here ye, hear ye, this is the town cryer! you are watching "fox & friends" >> what's the hiccup for? what are they insinuating? >> i don't know. i don't think they're insinuating the town cryer who came on our program a couple months ago had had a couple. >> he was really good. somewhere he's in costume. >> he was great, brian styles. welcome aboard. we got lots to talk about today. >> we do. really. it can't get much worse. new independent analysis came out, american enterprise institute saying that the obamacare, it's warning obamacare is really a ticking time bomb. that 50 million to 100 million insurance policies could be canceled by next fall. so obviously the question there is, is this an implosion, is this why democrats are calling
for repeal? i mean, not just standing by and saying, well, what can we do? they're saying, for instance, representatives from georgia, last night on greta, demanding that democrats stand up and repeal it before it's too late. >> i think we have folks who are more interested in defending on what they've done than fixing the problems at hand. that's why we need to repeal the mandate. if you can't do that, then delay it so folks can live with it. >> it's interesting because the next round of cannulations, which will be worse, is going to be small businesses and expected to hit employees because once the employee mandate is put into play, every business is going to have to make a decision. am i better off absorbing the fine or continuing to insure my people under these new massive regulations? how can i balance my books? will they use it to get health care off their books for good? bottom line, the average person
thinking they're lucky without an individual plan, not so lucky. we're getting these stories from seattle, from los angeles, from northern california, people, all of them saying now can i not keep my plan, but i can't even keep my doctor. i can't even get into the hospital i want because the hospital is not part of my plan. >> sure. we saw a story if you were watching yesterday, we saw a story from suburban baltimore about college kids who were paying 50 bucks a semester for insurance. now we're faced that the school would have to charge 1800 bucks, so the school dropped the policy completely. now people will have to go ahead and enroll in the affordable care act exchanges for the great state of maryland. but to elisabeth's point about how in this next wave over the next year just before the midterms, close to 100 million americans could lose their insurance, it's because they got it through work.
do you get your insurance through work? right now they're suggesting, according to this a he is i survey, that two-thirds of the people who have insurance coverage right now through their work could wind up losing it. so that could be very, very troubling. >> we thought joe manchin, he was an anomaly, he's a democrat that comes forward and says let's fix it. now people are driving away from the president because in my opinion, he's not fostered those relationships during good times of the now that we're in bad times, they feel no loyalty to the president. these are bad times. right now his approval rating is at 37%, below where president bush was after katrina. it was up very high a short time ago. that's when people were afraid to defy him. now they're saying nancy pelosi's obamacare, which president obama claimed as his own, is a flatout disaster. nancy pelosi says stand tall.
wasserman schultz says stand by it. a guest yesterday said don't blame p. we should fess up and admit we mess up. hit reset, essentially saying this plan doesn't work. where i think we're heading is in what george bush did when the occupation wasn't working in iraq. he got respected hands from the right and left together with three months. they came up with various option on a way out of iraq. we ended up with the surge. if the president is a true leader, he'll say this failed. i tried. -- >> it's his signature legislation. he's not going to do that in a million years because they jammed it down the throats of the republicans. what's troubling for a number of democrats and that's why we heard from manchin and mary landrieu, is they're taking the heat. right now in the great state of colorado, brand-new quinnipiac poll came out and it showed in colorado, it looks like the president's approval rating is
at 36%. but what is really troubling is when asked about president in a couple of years, hillary clinton finishes third -- no, finishes fourth behind three republicans. >> you know what that's going to mean? >> yes, i do. >> go ahead. you want me to say it or you say it. >> what it means -- >> elisabeth, you say it. >> she's going to continue to distance herself from this president, just as we saw her husband do that yesterday. it's interesting, you think it was a little awkward yesterday because oprah winfrey wound up at -- there in the white house to be presented the presidential medal of freedom. bill clinton was also offered and accepted the medal as well after he gave pointed criticism of the president last week. >> sure. if anyone is wondering why some people need to be delayed in being critical of the president, after you listen to this, you might understand why. >> yeah, i think there is a level of disrespect for the
office that occurs and that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases, because he's african-american. >> so disappointing. she's one of the most accomplished american, period. she's come over unbelievably hard times as a child to become as even president obama cited last night, the first african-american female billionaire in the country, has her own network, and she sees racism in the criticism of the president. do you see this when harry reid called president bush a loser? is that respect for the office? bill clinton was impeached for his actions in the office! is that racist? >> i don't know that barak obama could have been elected president if he was living in a racist nation. are there racists out there? absolutely. is it a majority of people? no. a majority of people, according to the polls, simply don't like his policies. colonel allen west responds to oprah last night. >> they supply what oprah said
as being a racist, i guess i'm a racist as well because i don't agree with those policies. i understand when you call out the race card that, is the last line of defense for them to try to get to you back off because no one wants to be called a racist and that's the means by which you try to silence people and really that is a suppression of your freedom of speech in this great nation in which we live. >> certainly throwing around a racist accusation is calling someone a racist for disagreeing with they're not would undermine racism when it does occur. >> that's right. >> and the congressman that yelled it out, you lie, i thought was wrong to do it. joe wilson, who we met before, i think he would take that back if he could, even though it turns out he was right. >> he was right. >> but i thought -- you might say rude. i wouldn't say racist. there is so much rude stuff towards the 1600 pennsylvania avenue in my lifetime. reagan was dumb, remember? george bush was incompetent and i will legitimate. bill clinton, we know where he ended up with the monica
lewinsky stuff. where was the racism there? this, to me, is a situation where you've gone six years with almost no criticism of the president. >> this is someone as powerful as oprah in instilling fear of those who may come to critique policy under a cloak of racism when it may not be there. so again, it undermines racism when it does occur. >> do you agree oprah or congressman west? there must be a gray area there. e-mail us, twitter us, or facebook us. >> i will be going in right after this break in the back to answer you on face back. >> down to the loading dock? >> yes. >> and in the meantime, heather nauert is here with some headlines. >> good morning. we have a couple updates to bring you. we begin now with a fox news alert. a giant plane lands at the wrong airport and now it's stuck there. the reason is that it is too big to take off and the runway is
just too short. the drama playing out in wichita, kansas. the cargo plane is a boeing 747 and it was supposed to land at mcconnell air force base in kansas, but landed at the smaller airport instead by mistake. no one saying how this happened just yet. the plane needs more than 9,000 feet of runway to take off. but that airport has just 6,000 feet of runway. boeing trying to figure out what to do next. we're getting great responses from you on twitter. i'll read them in just a second. terrifying moments at yet another airport. an emergency slide inflates in the middle of a flight inside the cabin, knocking over a especially flight attendant. this from fort myers to boston. >> it seemed like all of a sudden it was a big noise and then it blew up, you know? it was scary. a little scary at first. >> we were all startled. >> the flight attendant that it hit is okay. that plane made an emergency landing in orlando.
no word yet on why the chute deplayed. while you were sleeping, congressman radel saying he will not step down. instead, he says he's taking a leave of absence to get treatment for substance abuse. this after being busted for buying cocaine. >> i'm being held accountable for the decisions that i made in my life and i have found treatment and i'm working on treatment and like anything in life, i have to rebuild that trust and i fully understand it and i will do that. >> he says he'll donate his salary to charity during his leave. we all know live tv is filled with surprises. this minnesota reporter learned it the hard way. look at this. >> this is actually unbelievable okay, ow. >> poor thing. she's a reporter for fox 9 in minneapolis. she was doing what we call a

the past. i don't know if it was 2010 or 2012 when he thought there should be a moment of silence for those killed. i think having a separate interview with one thing and certainly want to know what you think. but should it be interjected into the sports? like between the gold and silver medal, maybe not. right before the triple lutz, i'm not sure. but maybe to the side as an ancillary. it is a global arena. >> you lutz, i say hamel camel. i think bob costas is extremely smart, and has a point of view. keith observerman has a point of view. you have bryan gumbel, he is a sports guy again. if you're going to be giving your opinion there, now all of a sudden you got to say, that's bob costas' opinion, he gets paid a loft money and he's always thought well out. are you looking to shut out 50% of the country, or maybe more that thinks bob costas is out of his mind and totally wrong? when keith olberman has a chance
to speak with this, do you think he's going to come out on the conservative points on this? >> it's a global stage, a global arena of athletic and the entire world will be viewing it. the athletes aren't the only one representing our nations. our broadcasters going there and speaking about it are representing our nation as well. >> i liked when howard co- -- cosell would talk. >> a lot of people watch sports to get away from the news. it looks like you could wind up with a heaping helping of it. e-mail us. in the meantime, we've got some headlines and heather nauert. >> amen to that, steve. i agree with you. >> what, the heaping helping? >> the two florida teen-agers accused of bullying their classmate so badly that she took her own life will not be facing criminal charges after all. police arrested the girls last

"fox & friends" final hour for this thursday or tuesday, it doesn't matter, it's not friday -- starts right now. >> it's "fox & friends"! >> it kind of is like groundhog day where every day we wake up and we got more bad news, unfortunately. after october 1st, all the news about the affordable care act was going to be good if you listen to nancy pelosi and the democrats who passed it. here is the latest, last night the president of the united states met with -- we heard he was going to meet with state insurance commissioners. as it turns out, it was awkward because not all states were invited. some states decided not to send anybody. in all, i believe only three states, louisiana, north carolina, and connecticut, showed up to figure out whether or not to have a dialogue with the president, whether or not his so-called fix, where if you
have one of what he referred to as subpar plans and you extend it for a year, some say that might not be legal, but it sounds like they all said, mr. president, we've been working for three years to implement your other plan. we can't change it right now. >> right. so one of them as you mentioned, louisiana;[/ commissioner, he came out of that really -- really went into it hoping they could come to some sort of agreement or the president would understand their concerns. but he came out feeling as though maybe they're not on the same page. take a listen. >> acknowledged that each state has to do what it deems appropriate and what this law requires relatives to implementation. so we had a great dialogue, no doubt about that. but we also came away agreeing that there was a lot of difference of opinion as to whether or not we can or should do what he urged us to do last
week. >> right. but they're not convinced that he knows their business, the president, more than they know their own business 'cause they're executives in charge of the insurance industry. some states like florida said we'll give it a shot. other states like washington and indiana say no, we're not doing that. new york says we're not complying. you told us to get on-line with this plan. i did for the last 3 1/2 years and now you want me to change on a dime because i had to cancel people while living up to your new standards. to me, this is something because you go into the white house. really intimidating, the president is asking for a favor. they say no. we can't do that. it's not possible. it's probably not going to work. thank you very much. i got to run now. what about the guys who didn't even show up? >> sure. that's a little awkward, that some of them would not even be invited in. we know -- stewart earlier told us that nine states are going to try to keep -- allow you to keep your subpar cut rate policies for a year. four have said they won't. but in north carolina, blue
cross blue shield, which is pretty much the god standard, what they're saying is okay. you're going to be able to keep your plan, but it's going to go up an average of between 16 and 24% just to reinstate the 150,000 plans in that state alone that have been cut. plus, there is news this morning -- this is breaking news -- according to the american intersurprise institute, between 60 and 100 million americans who get their policies through work, there is a real good possibility you do, your policy, one year from now, is going to either be canceled or you're going to be forced into one of the exchanges. that has got a lot of people going, wait a minute. the president didn't tell me that was going to happen to me. i thought i could keep my policy. >> right. >> specifically why some democrats now are calling for the repeal of obamacare. >> yeah. they are jumping off the ship big time. the president doesn't have relationships that he put in during good times. now that there are bad times, so many are using this opportunity to say, i'm out of here.
i'm not aboard on this. we have a lot of people just saying we got to blow this thing up. senator manchin was with us yesterday and said i have a bipartisan plan. put the entire thing on hold for a year. my goodness, stay tuned. we just covered a fraction of the breaking news on this. >> ton to come. >> let's talk about what's happening with the military right now. >> we go from an ugly situation to a pretty one. >> colonel lynette arnheart wrote an e-mail that she didn't want to get public, but it did. >> so this comes after a little context here, the army was lifting a ban on women in combat. so they're looking to advertise, let women know they can partake and get them in. apparently the pictures of the women have been pretty. this e-mail that you alluded to and what was supposed to be private, said, quote, in general, ugly women are perceived as competent, while pretty women are perceived as having used their looks to get ahead. she was questioning whether perception would hurt the
recruitment process there for women. >> because when you look at some of the promotional materials, they feel that too many pretty woman are used in the various promotional aspects of what they're trying to do and the colonel says it simply is giving an inaccurate picture, literally, of what combat really does look like. >> sure. >> so we asked you what you thought. social media has been blowing up. kyle says, quote, it doesn't matter what a woman looks like. as a marine, my question is, can i trust her enough to put my life in her hands? >> they don't think they should be wearing make-up or looking like they're going out. ly wise says they -- louise says they don't try to keep out good looking men. good point. >> this is a great point. robert said if the military starts selecting women or men based on looks, this country is
in serious trouble. >> alexander says, bullets don't care how you look. it's all about the person behind the rifle. i don't care about looks. >> alan says this: maybe they should look for women who can just do the job, just a thought. >> yeah. >> and trina says, who cares what the women look like if they're willing to put their lives on the line? why do we have to look on the outside to value a person's worth? >> you brought up a point, elisabeth, that maybe they're putting very attractive women, maybe models that aren't serving in there to get men. >> i did not bring that up! >> is that true? i thought you did. >> i said historically you put attractive people into -- >> now that you mention it. >> he's the blond man, she's the blond woman. >> maybe they were overlooking the idea that -- >> you never said anything like that? >> look, i think they should run a pretty tough campaign.
that's what i'm saying. >> that's what you said. >> yes. you don't hear me? >> joel, could we get some name tags for brian for the rest of the show? steve and elisabeth. >> i knew one of you said it. i knew i wasn't talking. >> while i harm brian, heather nauert has breaking news. >> hey there. good morning. we've been telling you about this story all morning long about the dreamliner that landed at the airport that was just too small to handle it. we've got an update for you. it has been stuck there overnight because the runway is too short for it to take off. so boeing is now saying it has a fix for the problem. a tug has turned around the plane. it's now at the end of the runway and they say it will be able to take off in about five hours. they're just waiting for a new crew. the plane was supposed to land at mcconnell air force base, but landed in wichita instead. no one is saying how this happened or what the actual fix is just yet. we're getting great responses from you. and then another airline story to tell you about.

$250 reduction. and they will not give him the modification. >> what can do you if you're in this situation? what can we do to help this man? >> i'm trying to help the guy out now, trying to work with him to see if we could push this lender, fight it as hard as you can. say wait, what do you want from this man? this is like the typical type of situation even to the extreme to try to help a man. we're going to try to keep pushing for the modification, because if we don't get it for him, this is a man literally that will be out on the street with his family and grandchildren. >> all right. so how can we make a lender aware of the hardship or should we just tell them what we want? does it matter our situations? is there any way to plead our case to a bank? >> what you give them is your financials. so whatever you have to show hardship on modification -- brian, if i may, we've been reporting that things are better in the housing market and they
are. thank god. but the reason i bring this story to our viewers is this is happening still all over america. you bring the financials to them. you give them hardship letters. you show them the cons. you -- conditions. you explain the circumstances and all we're asking for is have a heart. what's happened, brian, even with the housing market getting better, these are human beings and families that are living in these homes. >> you're not talking to me. you got to talk to banks and say that. i get it. but it's the banks that have to get it. >> you know what the problem is, brian? it's all a spread spreadsheet. there is mo blood running through their veins. they look at the spreadsheet and say this guy's hard system is so bad -- hardship is so bad, there is no way he can make the payments. are you kidding me? he's looking for 250, $300 a month type of reduction. where is this man going?
he's 67 years old, for god's sake! help the guy out. no heart. that's the problem. and there is people like this all over america that are still suffering. >> and is the next step foreclosure? could they take his house and others, they could take it back? i heard the banks don't want your house back. >> let me tell you something, they're taking houses back, still in foreclosures because the fact that people don't pay, then they have to take it back. yes. the consequence at this point is this, and i talked to the guy the other day, couple things. one, if we can't get it done, short sale the house or number two, the foreclosure. here is the deal, i told him straight up, listen to me, if these guys won't do it, no more payments, bank as much money as you can. we'll do everything we can to forestall this foreclosure so that you can live here and bank your money so you can get a place eventually to move out, be able to take care of your kids and grandkids. this is a comments tear that people should be outraged by and it's still happening in america. >> thanks so much. appreciate you bringing the

badly, she took her own life, not facing criminal charges. 12-year-old rebecca, the girl there, jumped to her death in september after being terrorized, bullied on-line. but attorneys say they don't have enough to prove that she was stalked or bullied, they say. and an american war veteran reportedly being held captive in north korea. that guy right there. 85-year-old meryl newman was visiting north korea with a valid tourist visa when he was pulled off the plane and locked up. state department refuses to confirm or comment on his case. we'll keep you updated as we can. elisabeth, over to you and maria >> thanks. here at fox news, we have a one of a kind mentoring program whose mission is to promote diversity and develop careers inside the television news industry. the ailes apprentice program was created by our own chairman and ceo, roger ailes, to change the face of television news. our own maria molina co-hosted
the program's annual graduation ceremony and she's joining me now to share some of her special moments from such an inspiring events. >> yes. very inspiring. this graduation is always a highlight for us as an organization. it's the one time we take a moment to celebrate our future and that's not something we take for granted around here. the ailes apprentice program provides a unique opportunity to four individuals every year, giving them the opportunity to learn the business from the ground up with a mentor by their side. this year's graduation was especially inspiring because the theme was about breaking boundaryies. >> to be the first of anything, i didn't run for that. i ran to represent people. i have never thought of myself as anything else other than an american. >> former governor of virginia, douglas wilder, was the event keynote speaker and set the inspirational tone for this year's graduation.
>> i lived so close to the church in richmond where patrick henry made his speech, six blocks away from where i was born. give me liberty or give me death. i would ask my mother then about thomas jefferson's speech, all men are created equal. did it mean me? she said oh, yeah, it meant you. when a boy's mother tells them that, you can't forget it! and no one could ever tell me differently. >> then one by one, the graduates accepted their awards and reflected on a remarkable year. >> one word that came to my mind was fear. for me it goes back to taking risk. once you've achieved something you were once fearful of, the reward is even greater. that's when you find out what you're made of. that's what this program gave me. >> first time i met mr. ailes, i was nervous, excited, and i wanted to hide. i remember he said one thing to me, if you're not the first person that your boss thinks of when he needs something done, then you have to ask yourself,
why aren't you? that stuck with me because it means you need to be the best at all times and if not, you need to be working on heading in that direction. >> i want to start off by thanking our ceo, roger ailes, for his inspirational leadership and tireless commitment to the program. thank you so much for everything. to mr. ailes, thank you. i can't thank you enough for giving us the resources, the tools and platform to elevate our careers to the next height. thank you. >> then the advertising pioneer, who was the only african-american working on madison avenue in the 1950s, talks about the upside of adversity, and motivated him to be his very best. >> i did not let the world define when i was. in most cases, the barriers were a gift to my ultimate success. roger ailes is doing a magnificent job in turning what unfortunately is the american
dna of profiling what a black person can do given the opportunity anyone can do great things. >> then the chairman and ceo, roner ailes, spoke, revealing why he started the program a decade ago. >> i had this idea ten years ago because i saw many young minority people in our intern programs and so on. but we couldn't find them. i said, where did those kids go? they were good. they said, they don't have access to us. i said, well, then we're going to create the access because i have absolute confidence that once they're in here, they will perform. >> wow. perform they have. many past graduates have risen to very influential positions inside the company and continue the program's mission of paying it forward by mentoring and
helping anyone who crosses their path. elisabeth? >> well said. certainly everyone is thanking mr. ailes for his commitment to that program, the entire network is better for it. tomorrow, you are going to actually meet the four apprentices when they stop by the studio. we'll find out more about their journey, what they learned along the way, and what they're planning to do next. so to learn more about the program and some of the work that the apprentices have put together, visit our web site at foxnews.com/ailesapprentice. thank you very much for bringing that today. we have breaking news. jobless numbers expected out any minute. we're going to bring them to you up next. plus, this ad coming under fire. is it just fine or over the line? we're going to ask a man who loves christmas, trace adkins. he's here and he just released a whole cd of christmas songs for us. can't wait to hear.

that's less than expected. nicole petallides is live with us now to talk more. >> a little better news than expected. she will break it down. she's in wall street. let's go right over to -- >> she told me she's now working out before her live hits in the morning. >> she must be getting up at midnight. >> or running down there. >> if you love trace adkins, he's going to be with us in just a minute. he's got a brand-new christmas cd out and we've never had this many people -- >> celtic. >> either way it sounds great. >> i know! we got a great big orchestra in the studio. heather nauert doing the news. >> i've never seen so many musicians. all right. we've got news now to bring you
first. we told you about the horrifying trend called the knockout game where teen-agers punch meet strangers -- complete strangers in the street. today is the first time we're hearing from one of the victims who was attacked in washington, d.c listen. >> he reached out with his left hand and i wasn't knocked off my bike, but they continued laughing. >> at least seven deaths have been linked to that trend so far he cheated death twice. he survived two plane crashes that killed his entire family. hard to imagine this. back in 2003, there was a crash at that took the lives of his mother, brother and his sister and it put hatch in a coma. then in 2011, another plane crash killed his father and his
stepmother. that happening just ten days after hatch was committed to play basketball for the michigan wolverines. this morning we've got an incredible update for you. he just signed a letter of intent to play for that team. listen. >> i said i'm gog play basketball again and there are people who guided me and i said thanks for your opinion, but you're wrong. >> he worked so hard to get to this point. the michigan coach says hatch is welcome in the program in any role. congratulations. and talk about an unusual traffic stop. former athletic slugger, jose canseco pulled over inside his car. goats wearing diapers. he tweeted this photo saying, i just got pulled over with goats in the car. the cops laughed at the poor goats. awesome. apparently he was traveling with his girlfriend to shoot a documentary on his show on
goats. let's head over to you. >> remember when bob costas said this? >> hand guns do not enhance our safety. they exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it. >> get ready for some more controversial statements like that. costas says he's going to started aing more politics during the olympics coverage. i don't know what's going on there. i could use some entertainment. steve said, he should stick with sports. i have more comments from bob costas. joe writes this, some people such as myself watch sports to escape politics. steve doocy -- another tweet. i stopped watching shows with
bob costas because of his political rants. a man that used to play football and now is dominating the music world, trace adkins. you're watching the game. he's all excited about his christmas album and not excited i'm here. elisabeth, we don't get along. trace, you're watching a football game and all of a sudden you hear about politic, political statements. does that bother you? >> i mean that, didn't really bother me too much. i don't listen to costas much anyway. i'm doing something else at half time. >> that's right. >> getting a refill. >> i'm doing something else at half time anyway. >> usually getting ready for the third quarter. >> there you go. >> trace has a brand-new cd out for digital file -- >> album. >> an album. thank you. we're going to talk about that in a moment. there it is right there.
>> i screw it up every time. >> stop hollering at me! i'm very sensitive. >> you're sensitive? >> i'm very sensitive. >> really? >> yeah. >> we should ask your band how sensitive you are. >> because you've got this new christmas album out, have you seen this new ad that k-mart is running where it has a bunch of guys who are in good shape and then they are bell ringers and reveal the table and suddenly they start ringing their -- or jiggling rather than ringing, it's called show your joe. what do you think about that? >> i laughed out loud the first time i saw it. >> in fact, you recreated it just a moment ago. >> i just did! i'm a little upset. >> show your joe. >> then the guy at the end. i'm a little upset i didn't get to do that. >> you just did it! >> i think you just did. we have the bells going?
right. >> i think it's hilarious. i can understand why some people may be offended by it. but i'm not. my sense of humor -- i laughed out loud. now i don't sit and watch it when it comes on. i don't watch guys in boxers doing that. but i thought it was hilarious. >> as a show, we should be more open to pelvis use. >> underserved market. >> exactly! like fainting goats. >> i wonder if there is another market. >> two documentaries i have to make now. >> i don't know how you -- you have a tour coming up. >> shut up, kilmeade! >> see what i have to deal with all day? >> go ahead, i'll move on. >> go somewhere else. >> all right, fine. >> thank you. >> the king's gift, as brian leaves, we'll get to visit. the cd is great. the celtic sound. >> yes.
it's not seltic, brian! >> he's going to get some bells. and the christmas tour, what can you tell can you tell us? >> we're having a lot of fun doing it. it's really something that's completely different from anything we've done. it's way outside my comfort zone. about a third of the show narration. we give anecdotal history about a lot of these carols that we've all grown up hearing, but we had no idea where they came from. some of that stuff is very, very interesting. it is for me. >> you've been on this program many times. you've sung live many times. i got to tell you, you just did a little sound check a moment ago, this is the most beautiful song i think you've ever done. >> musically, this is the most beautiful project i've ever been part of. 12 piece ensemble. that's what we have to have to recreate this. >> we are going to hear him perform live in about five minutes from right now. >> that's right. >> thank you. thanks, brian!
something you guys are burning up social media about right now, yesterday oprah winfrey got an award at the white house from the president of the united states. it's curious -- there she is right there in the east room receiving the medal of freedom. congratulations. curious, though, is that it was just last week where oprah said people who don't like this president don't like him because they are racist. here is oprah. >> disrespect for the office that occurs and that occurs in
some cases and maybe even many cases because he's african-american. >> we had colonel allen west on the program -- on the channel last night. he disagrees. we asked you what you thought and let's go ahead and take a look at social media. gary says, oprah winfrey, we are judging our president by the content of his character and not by the color of his skin. david smith says, i don't care what color they are, it's the policy that matters. truth commands respect. false teaching does not. keep coming. elisabeth, over to you? >> well, the labor department just releasing brand-new weekly jobless numbers. 323,000 first-time unemployment claims were filed last week. that's less than experts expected. nicole petallides joins us live from the new york stock exchange to discuss. good morning. >> good morning. good morning, everybody. that's right. the experts and the economists were expecting 335,000 claims. we got 323,000.
so it shows that things are slightly better than expected. it's the lowest level that we've seen in almost two months. that being said, you did have the veterans day holiday, which could skew the numbers a little bit. and it will be interesting going into the holiday season because a lot of these retailers and such may actually be beefing up for seasonal shoppers and the like. >> nicole, we also are hearing that there are popular tax breaks set to expire in 2014. >> let's do some of the most above lar ones that people understand. how about your teachers? you're going to have to give your teachers gift cards or something because they used to be able to deduct up to $250 for supplies for the classroom. they won't be able to do that anymore. teachers don't make that much anyway. they're important to all of us. also the pretax benefit where you put money away to pay for your parking or metro card or bus or something. that, too.
and energy efficiency credit. for example, when trying to beef up your home in a more energy efficient way, those types of credits also dwindling in 2014. so we'll be watching that. a quick note, target today is going to be on the down side. they said the consumers are facing higher taxes and unsteady employment and that curtails their spending. target and also wal-mart and kohl's and so many of these retailers will be watching that because the consumer is still very fragile. back to you. >> thank you for joining us live down at the new york stock exchange. up next, trace adkins performing a song off his new christmas album. first we'll check in with bill hemmer for what's coming up at the top of the hour. good morning. >> he's such a little guy, isn't he? brian dwarfs that guy. elisabeth, good morning to you. a new warning on the second wave of cancellations and this makes
the first round of obamacare look like a mere ripple. and why is the president blaming republicans? senator kelly ayotte is here to also, we put together a panel of doctors. if you like your hospital, you might not be able to keep your hospital. martha and i will see you in ten minutes, top of the hour i'm overhe hill. my body doesn't work the way it used to. past my prime? i'm a victim of a slowin? i don't think so. great grains protein blend. protein from natural ingredients like seeds and nuts. it helps support a healthy metabolism. great grains protein blend.
