JAMES FREEMAN, member of the WSJ Editorial Board, joined Brian in studio and explained that there will be two cases of sticker shock with Obamacare. One will be when people get notices about the price of their employer plans. The second one will be for people in exchanges when they find out what their premiums will be next year. Freeman explained, if healthy, young people don't choose to join the exchanges and subsidize other customers, premiums will dramatically increase!

Diana revealed she recently hung out with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and he was actually really nice.

Brian talked to ED ROLLINS, Republican pundit extraordinaire, who asked why we should let Iran blackmail us into doing anything since they started this whole thing when they captured our embassy employees 30+ years ago.

Rollins said that Obama is not a strong president and doesn't have the capacity to go to the American public and sell anything!
