They welcome -- -- lab countries to -- your Dow is up about 43 points and we'll talk about why -- -- two seconds to comment on the stat that.
It was amazing my -- looks like it's coming through -- some.
Some like crazy S.
-- are -- crazy murderer.
Yeah it looks like links some image -- taken a police station and the -- big -- beat up.
Dogs are so I don't know it's freaky and I project where.
And the other thing that was three he was seeing -- underwater I just took issue with that I don't know.
Hello and act.
I digress and we'll move on the doesn't 45 points why you -- you ask.
Good question big tech -- tech still supposedly will be voted on and passed by the senate today.
It's pretty it's appreciate thing we're still relying on the house -- and spoke with -- representatives from congress this morning and he's on the fence about it he's a bit of a house represented -- is gonna continue to push for eight.
Of the bush rates for the upper class and means that people making over -- -- -- -- -- going to continue to push for that.
As are many members of the house you know looking getting him props for that because it's going to be very hard sell to extend that two years from now in the economy's turned around when the Democrats -- look like they have.
-- miraculous things for the economy.
Can be very difficult to move that extension another two years.
Listen to about what happened with Mark Madoff over the weekend.
Saturday afternoon we heard that he -- himself in his apartment by -- -- police believe it or not his two year old son was in the other sleeping.
Apparently his wife was in Florida and mark before he died sent -- note to her and said -- -- someone come and check on our son.
And her dad showed up and found mark.
Atmosphere will be -- he's been found the story from the very beginning I can't believe it's been two years since we've talked about this.
But it has in the anniversary was over the weekend if I'm not mistaken and we had to come from all that.
And finally we have a judge is gonna rule on health care law's constitutionality today actually that the voting could come down any minute if it doesn't make sure I get to you but.
We have a Virginia judge and ironically enough or coincidentally is -- his Henry -- He's going to vote on whether it -- to decide on whether or not Obama care.
Basically saying he should not be forced to buy something you don't want to.
It means saying we get a lot of cases it's got to go through a lot of other state supreme courts but that being said.
It's on but certainly some.
-- here with us right now because it's -- it -- It's -- -- -- -- The Jersey yes some time it's something here's -- thing if if if you get one.
Judge to say it's unconstitutional.
That basically is late push in the first domino and a longer -- -- and it -- -- -- no one knows where this will end but it's it's starting something.
But I you know I'm I'm not a legal expert but then does and not just get -- keep moving higher and higher quality Supreme Court eventually we'll do it if this case you're probably right where -- and that yet it'll probably end of -- in court but that being said that's a tough.
You -- trade on this anymore can you now because of where it is we have no idea and I think a lot is priced in and and -- health care bill got passed.
Was so watered down the very and having anyway Obama is one actually see pass something good Health Care Reform.
Label isn't changed many things of course there are certain statements throughout the country do get hurt very badly done that you know -- are helped by this bill but overall.
It's -- that change your health care system.
That dramatically that can move the market big swings in either direction -- has anything really changed the way you see this market and -- I know that we keep talking about the passage of this.
Tax bill but he you know some skin -- -- race and that's all priced in at this point yes some isn't it past when it actually comes through and has confirmed sure real popular market but we may have an old you know by the rumor sell the -- and -- pop on and a little bit of a pull back.
I -- overall though take that away from the market the market the very -- -- fundamentally we're strong technically we're strong we're breaking out in new to your highs it's always a good sign.
And the news has not being overly bullish on the news has not -- bad -- but there's a lot of uncertainty in the market that fact that we hit highs in the face of a lot of uncertainty coming from the political -- And even some around -- -- a lot of stocks at -- -- retail sales people are going both ways.
And we're hitting highs.
That tells me the path of least resistance is higher for this market and again I've asked this before is it just because you can't -- the tape.
Or is it because it's legitimately -- get on the train because you can't fight it.
You sneak otherwise you gonna lose sure or is there.
Some sort of rationale to it and is punishable by you can't fight the tape and -- -- when you're going higher bad news you can't fight that you have to -- with momentum.
The short -- out there being crushed to keep trying to come -- and getting hits -- -- -- have the bears taking away.
If -- three trillion dollars in -- sidelines that are watching the market go higher and they're making a half a percent of money market eventually that money's gonna come in the markets are chasing and as well.
You know seem to have that comes -- -- next year you're gonna see a massive rally in stocks.
You also fundamentals I mean earnings are getting better at -- just raising increased the GDP estimates for next -- of the US and -- things are not that bad I mean you did you read headlines it may be a very negative -- -- but as far as the stock market's concerned.
News is good.
-- and that's -- point again a big disconnect between main street.
And Wall Street are the content -- market -- sets us sort of apex united their beauty exec that was interesting.
United Biotech yes and not a -- public -- right now like I guess I had really stay away from it.
But -- somebody actually makes money would -- love.
Did earnings of 66 cents a share last quarter as an increase over -- -- percent from the prior year the sales rose 76%.
But coming is actually doing real well -- go to where it's like you don't wanna fight to take a look at a chart of the stock for the better looking charts in -- market.
And what -- -- it focused on development of drugs.
For medical -- that really unmet you know there -- diseases that.
Not a lot of people have led by political orphan drugs are there for you know maybe to a thousand people of this disease in America -- throughout the world and is not a lot of companies that are touching on -- drug -- the corner of the entire marketing and charge an arm and a -- for these drugs and does -- -- -- when -- look at we'll -- about that analyzed using an if you want to play Biotech -- he's probably one of your least risky.
Yes yeah within about -- and then yeah that's exactly exactly I mean it's really I would say Biotech -- -- -- a lot of money.
Yeah because it's a gamble because of what these drug something happens to -- -- FDA comes down said you know cause liver cancer what are they hate.
-- it's probably lose the -- that you still have their risk this is not a high -- by Johnson and -- is like one of those to me it's kind of like Honeywell it's like an old school they make motors I mean dentists.
It doesn't get laurels not you and I have always thought that makes something breaks that they the -- he -- off -- auto parts auto stocks have been doing great demand for auto sales best in two years though they -- -- the playoffs and I know.
Power solutions which is going to be batteries to make batteries.
They make a lot of Leadbetter is now for hybrid accord with the moving towards the lithium which I really -- which is going to be electric cars going for and then -- the building efficiency they'll come -- -- billing and you know -- so you have -- -- more green less energy -- up at the three sectors that I really really like it's not a huge growing ad -- sales increased 15% and last last quarter.
But they're they're a lot of niche sectors that can do very well future.
Exercise -- I would say right now -- RLD.
3-D technology -- it's hot like I don't even know.
I -- to quote I don't think it's a risk by any stretch the only risk you have is this the fact 3-D just as -- bad and that's two years and also -- nobody cares about 3-D but do you think I mean it's not it's not going away.
It's not in -- -- me -- -- hack but it's not going away but it's not -- ETV were HDTV change -- future forever you know flat screen TVs it will never go back to the big two.
-- where that's -- -- -- -- could be go from 380 to something else or maybe another technology Healy said that rich poor people say you know what I'm just sick -- -- three to eight wherein -- classes yet.
But did but this -- is -- that makes us cool glasses -- for 200 dollars and actually look cool insider blasting your living room they even by -- -- -- would actually.
This is the company and they also did review with the games and stuff that gets really big -- am I busy reading email I get that I get that.
-- quickly where we end this week.
Hired again -- and yes I most weeks but I really believe that for one attack still gets done.
To a lot of by going into the end of the year.
And you want to be selling because of the tax increase I think the people that we're we're going to sell -- -- -- -- buyers can you say because they're gonna -- the capital gains -- the lower -- -- -- -- -- to a -- not gonna -- and you see a lot of money -- sidelines little window dressing from these funds buying stocks before a year -- they can show their -- of the year for the year ended a year I have more for the money equities -- cash.
It's such a little -- -- then absolutely.
I would take it one that's good news Actuant thirty points on the -- -- called bank summit is.
I'm liking your picks this week actually noticeably nothing from China or the emerging markets -- darling.
Three daybreak guessing ditto we can't we're -- -- we get back and that -- and fears here to talk about what's going on with this core Madoff family because.
From China -- art form I really am.
-- -- -- until my Roman Catholic long gone.
Welcome back at the -- live on Tracy -- -- -- about forty points 41 points.
When I heard Saturday morning that -- Madoff hanged himself I knew in -- like thirty seconds Adam Shapiro would be in -- bureau working like a dog and sure enough.
He was after a night of binging before we do get a bit -- -- -- -- -- put it all the more you are troopers are but you have covered this story from day one seconds.
Two years I cannot believe two years ago well and imagine how the victims I mean there aren't thousands of victims worldwide mister Madoff including.
Perhaps his son depending how you look at this.
Who have had to live within two years we'll have to live -- -- the rest of their lives did I miss.
Speak when I said that it was the anniversary this weekend -- no not at all it was this of the timeline goes like this.
Bernie Madoff wants to distribute.
The the bonuses to employees of BLM I asked Bernard L.
Madoff Investment Securities in which the two sons are co directors.
Wants to distribute I think it's -- 170 million in bonuses to people two months early.
The suns don't understand why he wants to do this he confesses to them about the Ponzi scheme.
That's also that I have the annual Christmas party -- -- -- my -- instead of going to the party the suns go to their attorney.
And then subsequently go to by the US authorities -- on the eleventh is when -- arrested OK the eleventh it was -- -- -- Saturday with the actual anniversary.
The day that Mark Madoff killed himself was the two year at a lower -- 1211.
Was two years to the -- that Bernie Madoff had was arrested and then the famous scene where he is released from jail on bail.
And there's the pushing match yet between the reporters now do you believe in you follow this story that -- suns truly were in the dark.
I and asked me this question do I think the suns were complicit in their fathers fraud.
Back now I don't think that they coordinated the fraud did just based but I get to read.
The way others did they were clearly several people several several people who were not only complicit but active in the fraud.
Now the problem for the suns is and if you read Irving -- he's the trustee suing everybody to recover money.
If you read the lawsuits that court has -- against family members.
He uses language that's different from the lawsuits filed against those who -- have not been criminally charged but he makes it seem as if this person did ABC which is of criminal act which allowed this to happen.
With the suns what he says they should've known.
They were in a position to know and they willfully looked the other way.
So in that regard are they negligent yes they were co directors the -- the legitimate side of the business.
And their questions they did not ask and in the -- they had you're supposed to ask those questions.
And did they knowingly not ask those questions is the question bingo right okay so let's let's go to today two years.
He commit suicide.
And if I got the story -- he he had sent a note -- an email it to me anyways you know that saying you should have someone come check on our son.
Yeah no one wants to hear the truth is one thing he sent the other is take care of my family.
Now remember he's divorced in 2000 has two children from a previous marriage who were teenagers right and now he has he's remarried -- -- by the first -- Stephanie.
She's changed her last name to Morgan back not divorced.
-- maiden name back he took her maiden name back as well as for the children yeah yeah I mean of -- Madoff name.
-- you know these guys.
And she then called her stepfather.
Who is a lawyer in the firm that represents Mark Madoff.
-- -- -- -- And he went to the apartment around 7:30 on Saturday morning and discovered Mark Madoff hanging from a pipe in the apartment he had tied -- dog leash around his neck until themselves.
So he sensibly could've done this.
He put his son to bed and then done it could well hang in there online yet could have been except the emails were sent earlier early and -- Saturday morning and -- and he woke up and did this.
He did this sometime between the last moment he was seen alive 6:30 PM that evening walking the dog and 7:30 AM Saturday morning when -- when he was discovered and and and what's happening now playing out behind the scenes in that this has more of that.
You know the salacious aspects of this whole thing.
Nobody's claimed his -- -- I mean the medical examiner here in New York ruled this -- suicide yesterday.
And nobody from the family his claim the body no funeral home -- come to take the body.
There is discussion as to whether they'll actually be funeral service.
For Mark Madoff so nobody knows what's going to happen the remains of -- that.
Citizen you understand when eat somebody dies you clean you know a family member generally comes to claim the body and then funeral proceedings persistent and lack.
If they don't.
Cut themselves off from which is kind of off.
-- Yeah I suspect that this afternoon will be reporting that somebody is claiming the body the next step though is what happens.
Don't expected to be funeral service I -- they're discussing having won but.
It's a media circus if you do that.
The next question is does Bernie come.
Bernie Madoff will not be there he would have to request permission to attend.
The Bureau of Prisons would have to allow him to do this it is so highly unlikely it's better bet that the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates before the end of the year because.
It is just one he hasn't even requested it yet right this point unofficially all the Bureau of Prisons we'll say is we can't tell you that but he -- not request OK and we also know that.
It is rare that they grant the request it in any you know he has no constitutional right now an inmate to request to be able to attend so that being said he went probably he will most likely not be there and your point is a good one about the fact that this poor man's funeral.
Will be a three rings and.
You also have a set the scenario playing out with the family mark and Andrew.
There are press reports that are somewhat accurate they don't talk to their -- they did talking to Ruth after all of this -- there was communication between sons and mother.
Up until sentencing.
When Bernie was sent to -- which is the federal correctional facility where he's being held -- has maintained a relationship she has gone to visit burning.
The suns at the warning urgency.
But as well they have it's from -- -- father since 2010 that is accurate since 2008 on December 10 race correct.
I want to say it's sad and I want to say that.
I you would think that -- because Bernie Madoff had has been so.
Calculated and heartless to the whole thing.
That this might be the one thing that puts him over the edge.
Makes him appear somewhat -- -- -- I.
I -- Bernie Madoff.
But you think not you think he's a psychopath threat we are talking about yet by in -- but earlier on a guy it.
I think the kind of mind that allows you to destroy as many lives as he did.
You can you know psychopath.
Or psychotic whatever the term actually -- -- There's such a disconnect and a quote compartmentalization.
Of what is right and wrong I think perhaps as a father you know how could you not find remorse.
But whether that mind of a man who cheated thousands of people out of their livelihoods.
Would allow himself to bear responsibility or feel guilt.
Bernie Madoff feels no guilt -- would have made up continues to -- to this day there's been one interview -- in jail was by lawyers from San Francisco.
And he he set there and said I did this a lovable that's just total.
BS -- Deepest scholarly a bond -- -- all these people have been charged Judy -- -- the people who work in a DIA on the 78 since the seventeenth floor.
It it's spelled out in this civil documents and in the allegations now in the criminal documents as to what they did that they were not only complicit they were active participants.
In this fraud.
It's fascinating I know I have to let you go apparently have to go for the -- 141000 more times.
But it's fascinating it's a unites.
-- it's cliche -- has Greek tragedy I I'm surprised this is not made it to Broadway yet it well in the end it's just it's sad that he's just.
Exciting from thousands of lives his own family now.
-- there is there's a report in the New York Post today that Ruth Madoff is blaming Bernie for destroying the family.
I can tell you from a personal discussion with someone who is this close to Ruth.
That she is obviously heartbroken I mean it's the understatement as a reporter when you have to call people -- -- -- like this happens and you say listen up it's awkward.
Any kind of statement you know the obvious is the statement and she is heartbroken.
Release I would guess that contact -- -- her -- for at least a year.
On not worth -- not one penny was worth it and -- thank you so much yet.
And Adam did work all weekend honest person hung over and all of a masculine muscle.
All right well.
It's -- that's coming a little more uplifting and that is need in America buying products that are made in America -- -- is with us right now co-founder and president of.
Made in the USA.
We made in USA.
Julie thank you for being with us.
And let -- took on this cause you now it's Nike contaminated ended at six kids.
You're busy and you decided that you want to get the word out there that people should -- buying products made in the US how could.
-- you know -- inches staying in 1986.
And Ronald Reagan actually need the proclamation.
That December is national made an American mind.
And -- -- ever really talks about that.
And in the honest I didn't even really realized that myself until recently.
I thought what a wonderful month to be proclaimed made in America my.
-- a what a great minds -- people RD spending so much money on holiday guests are friends and family and business associates.
To really graying -- the awareness of the importance of buying American during this critical time in our country.
I love it I just think it's fabulous and I love -- made in America -- -- -- -- saying OK so.
I do you help and it will figure out what products are made in America could sneak.
They're all made in China so how -- -- figure out what is -- here and well he had -- that's exactly at every time I'm talking about made -- USA or buy American and I always hear from everybody whoever I'm talking TO.
Well there's nothing made here in the United States are I can't find anything.
And so we decided to do this year it's our first annual -- -- made -- USA certified we came out with the holiday gift giving guide.
To start against Pete I road map that's done it ideas -- -- suggestions that they could by the holiday C then.
That we now because we certified that it that there made in USA and -- supporting US business says and US jobs.
So we put together a little gift giving guide that you can find on our blog at daddy daddy daddy -- USA hype and C dot com and then click on blonde.
And it's a short list but next year hopefully it'll be -- -- longer.
But I love the list and I love that on the top of the list.
Our thank you think -- because it fattest didn't -- -- thank you we're here.
Roddick is awesome -- some good things are here there they are at the perfect little song they fit everybody world they aren't able -- they say.
-- where -- out and yell out.
But yes -- -- good physically and bringing up also.
It's a great product and over featured it as well.
-- how did you go through and -- one find these products into served by them.
Well you know with -- -- -- been that's the whole idea of our business as we go out and we find companies that are making that claim meeting like today and the only contact them about certification and and I think non mandatory certifications that these companies are under -- requirement to go through an audit -- that's what -- But -- and we have a must thirty companies now that are meeting USA certified and some of them -- great forget getting and some of them aren't.
But we put together just -- -- little left and broken down by -- and -- -- women gets firm and gets buried and the act play.
For people who just sort of is it is the guy I don't kind of wanting to throw out the challenge to America.
That did the holiday season let's -- he can byte key you -- That are meeting you -- day for friends family or business associates at everybody in America did that this holiday season.
I think we're gonna see the massive action and the math and good being done.
I love that that's a nice little it's a good way to start -- as opposed -- coming out of it and then by all American this two gifts.
Dubious real -- -- -- I yeah I did not losing -- not in common people put it up but tell us not let again.
It's daddy daddy daddy you die you wet day high -- C dot com I mean Clinton and a lot of USA certified as we've saying.
Dot com I got a -- is up about -- he's got that everybody gets it.
It's so let me tell let me ask you this what.
Well obviously we charge for the certification caveat we actually -- a full supply chain on -- than what we do is we basically Allen asked the company to be a 100% transparently bad.
Sell -- their complete supply chain and then we go line -- line and we verified the country of origin for each component that goes into the end product.
See now that really -- that really says something about these companies -- that the list.
Because they have been completely transparent what and I have signed off on each one of these on -- So as a mother and it consumer.
I can guarantee you that you -- your buying these products to our money is going to support US business and US employees.
I love that idea okay -- go you check out the website.
I -- -- gonna continue to updated and that even after the holidays we mango and find out who is USA certified.
Right we want to make it easy for people to shot and the idea is that this seal is gonna become a recognizable -- for consumers and that then when they see that CL.
They can feel good about that -- just knowing that we did the checking in the supply chain and -- it's not just somebody randomly making that claim that may or may not be trail.
That is -- that it is verifiable and they can really feel good about that her -- well I mean.
You know in your notes there's a Gallup poll that found 72% of Americans are paying more attention.
And -- you know what we got.
Here for awhile toys from China had scuffle over the you know you worry about your clothes now has this like finish on them from -- -- do you worry more and more about it it would be great.
Do you have a place to go to know what's made here and what's not and so.
Kudos to you please keep it up these can be updated painting come back and let us know when you got more stuff coming out now and say you know -- thank -- -- well.
-- simply think about it especially now they know they mean I went out.
Well I yeah I know you love them I love MCI name aside certifying that company I personally does personally endorse that -- fantastic they really are the most comfortable on.
-- -- co-founder president and made in USA certified thank you for being with us.
Down in Florida and I have cold down there.
Cold in Florida what is an act that an oxy moron.
I actually -- this year because he won let's talk about -- -- -- -- last time he was here Shibani -- lake and slurs all over the place I think he was coming back thinking we're going to be like bar talking again well.
I'm wearing some of the world's most comfortable phones and it's at this moment let me tell you right now.
Thank you think -- Work.
Load of aids is that.
Eleven your story.
I saw this morning this is by -- -- went crazy things have ever heard an all -- we're yet to disagree and understand.
-- the snowplows on the roof that would it was -- in Minnesota who would have thunk it I really thin but really.
And three of the panels in the metrodome that you could.
She's in the engineers who designed this where it's wrong could still owned and -- what's the rationale of the above and I think -- Cooley who.
Stadium's been around for some -- -- eight years it's it's happened before.
And this actually sparks a much bigger debate -- see we told you we needed new stadium.
It's old I think we have the video that -- right yeah we do.
Yeah this -- yeah.
Oh my goodness.
We'll let you have workers out there for much of the it was a today is thank goodness it will be for the company -- an upcoming -- and a laughter -- the giants -- circus and when you look at it like that isn't it doesn't it looks like -- -- Well in Minnesota's been a big debate of course because we want a new stadium is 28 years old metrodome and down because the big question is cost 750 million at least.
Public finances gonna -- -- is the taxpayer's gonna have to pick up the bill.
Do they wanna pay -- especially in this economic climate well the vikings say the least on this for the vikings in Minnesota Vikings runs out of the metrodome at the end of next season.
So it's really gonna -- heating up of that however out of this you know -- Detroit the -- lions fans get a break that game tonight between the giants and vikings will be played.
But Ford Field in Detroit.
They never get a Monday night game and I run a -- of ironies of irony is they do now and it doesn't involve the lines.
What happens now to ticket holders who had ticket to the -- -- down the tickets are honored interest rates they really isn't all they have relative to destroy it but they will -- a refund.
If you don't -- travel on those icy roads to Detroit which is right 600 miles away and it could and it's wicked snow -- -- next week it is wrong.
And so or they do take that routes and they have to be true fans and they are an improbable -- he -- by -- and I Pakistan's and they as the crazy.
They will be given preferential seats on the fifty yard line.
Oh that's -- -- -- the trip.
May -- you motorist it now annual general admission tickets for the Detroit fans a free.
-- all they've been lined up if we go outside all full field it's twelve above zero.
But you know what you throw the will of free out there -- that -- cold.
We'll hang around that believe Obama of that and now I isn't Ericsson now what about the board giants fans have blue around him that he's -- -- Johnson now what I mean I guess once you're out there you keep going with this -- you -- and you move on to determine.
Do with this that tore the country the problem was that the giants never got to Minneapolis they got stuck in Kansas City never made it because of the snowstorm and then they said oh wait animal played -- game late for Minneapolis have been in public -- -- Detroit to the -- got to Minneapolis.
Magic has ever been and that you don't have to -- this Asian time in history where a football team or any team did not make it to tell us generals and a -- -- I have to.
For abatement until that has these things happen is that they didn't even with as we see would domed stadiums you expect -- -- -- an outlook as the -- that we're gonna move the game in Minneapolis.
The college state in which held about 50000 to just -- and we don't have any cold weather gear.
They were gonna play inside tonight seventy degree don't you -- says it -- yes I would have been interesting Eli would have had a -- -- trying to -- -- So anyway.
Interesting so I mean I guess the upshot on the financial end is to jury gets a little pop in some activity they do they get some -- -- -- needed yeah yeah as you know that's something I guess whereas Minnesota and Minneapolis loses out but.
This money and good saves along the argument for a news stay right -- win win and Simmons and let these guys probably took an extra day off a -- they do.
-- my kids God's -- happy I got as a -- say thank you so intervening years -- different.
-- and I promise we will use more racial slurs and -- -- say bad words that we did last time that Saddam.
I didn't take a break we get back rich Edson is gonna give us the update on what's going on with the -- could I'm not constitutionality.
Of Health Care Reform we'll be right back.
Some residents at a -- understand -- -- -- China I don't hate China I just don't trust it.
I don't trust anything about I can trust when I get my Chinese food -- inevitably that's wrong I don't trust anything.
I'm skeptical Sicilian now I will leave it that comparison many -- is skeptical about Obama care rich -- is with us right now on this pivotal decision.
And not so that's how -- and I know you're outside.
Freezing so I'll talk -- -- no no problem it's it's actually it's quite humid out so.
That's right -- -- my breasts and all that cold out that a lot of snow here this morning but anyway there's a big supreme -- big federal court decisions are not Supreme Court right not yet.
A federal judge here federal judge Henry Hudson has decided.
That's the portion of the health care law -- the individual mandate it requires.
Almost every American to have health insurance by the year 2014.
That that is unconstitutional.
And what he has done is said that he will sever that -- from the law meaning that.
The entire law is an unconstitutional -- the entire law.
At least complies.
Because this is unconstitutional doesn't knock down the entire law.
And that's why.
That decision here today.
It will likely be appealed it will likely go.
Two Circuit Court next of course we have another set.
Of states suing.
The administration on along the same lines that's in Florida we expect a decision there.
By the end of the month and -- Jersey most folks expect this -- eventually end up.
In the Supreme Court because it's such a high profile cases and you.
Very well could have differing opinions beneath the Supreme Court so hot at this time next year we could be talking about a Supreme Court case on this but at least for today.
This is a victory for Virginia attorney general thank Richie Daley who opposes the administration's -- the administration at least.
I took that -- ability -- home -- meaning that it just got rid of the individual mandate the entire law.
Wasn't ruled unconstitutional but we get expected administration appeal from here Tracy.
Virginia attorney general OK good now it was a -- -- -- -- corporate this usually the first to come out if not sleepers I'm not sure I'm correct in saying that to say.
This is unconstitutional on taking all the way.
Does this settle operates a seven dominoes basically like you know.
We just pushed -- first one here in -- are they gonna keep going if it can be very difficult.
When this goes in front of a judge in another state for that judge to say yes -- is constitutional.
You know it depends on that it depends of the court and it really depends on what level.
This is reached because you've got twenty states down in Florida.
That have joined -- a federal case there and you know opponents of this of -- -- -- -- will point out that look.
The attorney general here's a Republican doesn't like the law and that many of the other states that have joined if you're talking about ever.
Group mostly of attorneys general fighting against this law and that it basically boils down to politics however.
There is a law now in the state of Virginia that says that he would of the state of Virginia no one like the federal government can force you.
To buy health insurance if you don't want it.
And that's the reason -- Virginia -- been set apart not only as -- attorney general believes that this law is unconstitutional.
But the state house behind me decided that they would pass a law saying.
That no one has to buy health insurance.
You know eventually all these bills will all be all these challenges will likely end up.
-- in front of the Supreme Court just because you have such a large -- But attorneys generals in this country who believe it's unconstitutional and when you have.
Such regional differences you may get differing opinions and when you have differing opinions in courts beneath the Supreme Court.
While that seems like perfect scenario -- reports take it up and make a final decision.
Ghastly race and look the other stuff gonna come up right the death panels on -- What bothers me the most and -- talked about this before is we spent an exorbitant sum of money to get this thing passed.
Between and and not even including all the extras the cornhuskers kick back and Alabama and Louisiana purchase and all that stuff.
Now we're spending more money don't feel the darn thing.
All of you learned the end of today is gonna -- -- being in the exact same places we are without care and that much more in the hole.
It's -- it's a good question to see exactly what.
What exactly comes out of -- of this entire process because we specifically were talking you know not.
And of life care or anything -- those lines specifically mostly these challenges.
And opponents of Islam are are betting their money on an individual mandate they find the most objectionable.
They find it something in the court system that they believe will get them to a place that the -- that that the legislative system can't get them right now.
Which is to get rid of this -- because with a democratic senate democratic White House united.
Pass a law that that gets rid of this law even though Republicans in the house -- are looking to do that.
In fact there is a legislative challenge -- individual mandate senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska.
-- in his office say he will introduce a bill to change the individual mandate.
Even though a number of Republicans are opposed to that individual mandate it -- it.
They're not gonna vote to replace the individual mandate with a system that may be more voluntary because having individual mandate in this law they believe.
That will better their chances for the Supreme Court ultimately deciding that this -- -- and as unconstitutional.
Now it also depends over the Supreme Court defines this judge.
Said OK just the individual mandate is unconstitutional.
You may sever that from the rest of the law.
And the rest of the law they move forward.
Supreme Court may find that congress may have to pass something else in order to get this work but pitchers it has so many different pieces -- play here because.
Even though -- judges found that.
You know the entire law is not going to be struck down at least his opinion of course there's going to be an appeal.
You can't really apply this law in practicality.
Went out the individual mandate because this law works basically.
Insurance companies have promised -- it's now the law -- insurance companies can't drop you for any reason but a preexisting condition.
So that makes health care for them more expensive to provide if they can't just drop customers because of the condition they -- was pre existing.
To get that money back they're making twenty million other people.
Go on their health care rolls the individual mandate widens the health careful it makes more people who may not be sick.
-- health insurance premiums.
That gives more of the profits and health insurance companies and they could afford to pay for not dropping customers if they want to.
And so it really this entire law kind of works like -- clock -- really can't.
Remove one piece and expect the rest of it to work you take this out let the rest the -- go forward.
Insurance premiums are gonna shoot right -- -- is unsustainable system at some argue it's an unsustainable system even as written.
So it's you know this this this case is not the last we're gonna hear this.
What do you think this does that and -- outside one last question.
What is -- President Obama you know he's sitting right now kind of -- resting on our laurels thinking he came to the senator he's doing the right thing.
Everybody loves and again and then -- can eat -- he gets knocked out right there there's what that song I I get.
Not down but I get up again -- some like that.

And and -- W get help get -- -- yeah I really think the the administration.
Publicly is probably get it.
Not dismiss it -- -- this is a federal -- -- -- that's a federal judge appointed by George W.
Bush they will say that this is the opinion of one federal judge.
And that's why we have circuit courts and that's I have supreme courts and had this -- any other way.
Attorney general -- you know it would -- very very likely.
-- this is is the administration will likely do once they once they make the decision to do that.
-- -- saying hits keep coming literally.
