8:00 pm
9:00 p.m., we will be back tomorrow. sean hannity is next. don't miss it. >> sean: thanks, tucker. welcome to "hannity." the obama nightmare is finally coming to an end. he just finished giving his farewell address in his hometown of chicago and he is already attempting to rewrite the to rewrite the history books to tried >> sean: thanks, tucker, welcome to spear ten. president obama just finished giving his farewell address, and he is already attempting to rewrite the history books to tried and that is tonight's opening monologue. just watching president obama spend time boasting about the economy, the fact paint a much
8:01 pm
different picture. what is exactly true is this. he oversaw the precipitous decline of the american economy, that is the fact. under president obama, we have seen the lowest labor participation t rates, 95 millin of your fellow americans out of the labor force, been the worst recovery since the 1940s, the lowest home ownership rate and 51 years, over 11 million more americans are on food stamps since he became president, over 43 million americans now living in poverty, one in five american families without somebody in the labor force, they are either incarcerated or they are out of the labor force. and by the time he leaves, president barack hussein obama will have completed more than all of the presidents before him combined paid speaking of data, when president obama finally leaves office, it will be almost $20 trillion which means during the past eight years he has
8:02 pm
amassed $9.3 trillion, i got that one said $9 trillion in debt, that's irresponsible, unpatriotic, and of course, president obama's assault on the business community, the estimated cost under obama, a staggering $873 billion. all told, the number of new regulations that have been finalized under president obama, that checks in at almost 3,000. ofs course, jobs. president obama always bragging about how many he has creative, facts are facts, lost over 300,000 manufacturing jobs and the president won't tell you that last year, america had a global trade deficit of over $732 billion. then, of course, there is health care, signature legislation. remember when obama repeatedly told you, you keep your doctor,
8:03 pm
you keep your plan, on average, save $2500 a year? remember this? >> no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep yourre health care plan, period. >> sean: millions of people lost their doctors, lost their plans, and that is the start of the obamacare disaster. this year, obamacare premiums are excluding by 25% on average, and arizona, they are jumping by a stunning 116%. but the misery doesn't end a paid member when obama said that the average american family would save $25,000 a year in health care? the exact opposite has happened. according to the kaiser family foundation, the increase for employer-sponsored benefits i since 2008 is now 5,462 bucks,
8:04 pm
now, deductibles are many can't even afford to use your plan, essentially useless to you. a choice in health care providers is also evaporating. in states like alabama, alaska, oklahoma, south carolina, they just have a single insurer to choose from, so much for choice. and many insurers are now pulling out of the obamacare exchanges because they are losing massive amounts of money. then there is the president's failed foreign policy, where do i start, the guy that gave iran $150 billion and allows them to continue to spin their t centrifuges, spent a ransom there, drew a red line in the sand with syria and a assad, creating a massive worldwide humanitarian, and my crisis in egypt, he gave the former muslim brotherhood head, gave them tanks, $1.5 billion of your taxt
8:05 pm
dollars. that country has since fallen into chaos,ad crating a hotbed r what is isis. speaking of isis, remember 2014 than ours before the horrific isis attack that killed over 100 people, the president said isis is contained. isis was never contained, and we know that because the terror group took over large parts of iraq because he left too early. the reason isis was able to do that, president obama he pulled out these trips troops for pury political reasons. there is no doubt that president obama's legacy has not damage the country. for goodness tonight, we have a new president and ten days, a clear plan to do it including creative creating new jobs, going from seven brackets to three tax
8:06 pm
brackets, cutting regulations that is so burdensome, allowing multinational corporations to bring back trillions of dollars cannot repatriate that money with him one time 10% tax, energy independence as a promise of president-elect trump maria peeling-replacing obamacare, vetting refugees, appointing originally original justices who will follow the meaning of the constitution, believe in separation of problems, coequal branches of government, and this is a president-elect that will talk about the strength isis, talked about training this month, reducing the size of government, eliminating bureaucratic waste, fraud, abuse, sending education back to the states, finally, president-elect trump has promised to remembermi the forgotten man, the people in michigan, the people in ohio, the people in wisconsin and pennsylvania. the president-elect has already signaled that he is very seriously doing all that he can up until now to get
8:07 pm
congressional republicans to show some basketball that they both stand under principles, -- real, lasting change hopefully it's coming re: our way. we'll be doing it here. training is now with reaction, editor-in-chief -- you were laughing during the whole speech. i can't take this, i didn't take this. >> the democrats have no one like obamama now. when you watched him, remember that audacity, that was the audacity of hope. you have just demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt how he has laid waste to our productivity, to this idea of a vibrant economy, to a foreign policy that has some semblance of pragmatism. he has laid waste to all of that. we have more racial division.
8:08 pm
>> sean: a huge amount on race. >> the military, every poll shows that the military has a deep amount of distrust. personally, he is popular. that doesn't surprise me at all. but he comes out there and he struts like he just won the lotto. he basically said, i am basically going to be on the scene. when you contrast that what reagan said in his farewell -- >> sean: i and remember what he said. >> we weren't just marking time. that's what he said. we left this city freer ander stronger. president obama -- >> sean: he can't say that. >> he can't say that. >> reagan came at a definitely bad time for economy. the iranian hostage crisis, for all of barack obama's strutting and again, he is a masterful politician. >> sean: you thought there were crocodile tears. don't lie.
8:09 pm
>> i have never seen a man -- i am not a young person. i have never seen a man grab a tissue. >> sean: hold on. >> do you have a tissue here? and like this, wait for it. i have just never seen that. a man will be like, whatever. just fake through it. there is some good acting involved. i'm sure he is wistful. eight years, it's been a long eight years. >> sean: he got to be president of the united states. >> he got to be president of the united states. he's not dumb, the man is a very canny. he is very savvy and he knows -- >> sean: can i disagree with you? >> i don't think he is a dumb person. >> sean: i don't disagree. i think he is a man of his indoctrination. >> although we don't know what he got in his grades and harvard. i'm just teasing. >> now you're going to ask for his birth certificate. and the whole world will go crazy. but here is what i never found from him..
8:10 pm
an ability to be pragmatic. i mean, he talked about partisanship and i'm like, you are the most partisan person i know.. he never had an era of the big government is over. he never breaks from that indoctrination. that frank marshall davis mentality. >> organizers, the word " "organizes." >> he is still back, he goes back to chicago. was oprah there? remember last time? brangelina? a lot of things have changed in eight years. but look, he is the best that they have. they think cory booker is going to be the next obama? that's why he came out attacking jeff sessions today. he is a once-in-a-lifetime politician for the democrats. so i'm trying to put myself in the position of a democrat today.y. to watch him, the first african-american president, articulate in his own way and very bold. i mean, he came out there and gave it all he had for hillary clinton. he didn't leave anything on the field for hillary. >> sean: i always thought he
8:11 pm
loved campaigning. i never thought he i never thought he got -- if i'm a democrat, this is what i am thinking. they lost the presidency. 13 senate seats, 13 governorships and 33 state houses, about thousand seats. >> there are a lot of theatrics here. republicans have to be a little bit better. trump is actually good at theatrics. you have to produce events to produce emotions. this was a well-produced event tonight. now, am i agreeing with his assessment? no, i am not. i am not agreeing withot that. but you produce events. from the very beginning, when they brought him the columns, the seas are going to calm. the clouds are going to part. there was an emotion to it. people were led to believe. he had an enormous turnout, among working-class voters. many have turned against the democratic party. but they were able to conjure up emotion about this idea of hope that was untethered to the
8:12 pm
reality of the day. i will give that to them. t >> sean: that's really welll said. >> but that was a fantasy. we are not a country of 1987, with the economy we had back then. it is a different landscape and obama had a great opportunity to change the country for the better. i think sadly, for someone of his background, he squandered a lot of those opportunities as a partisan, as an ideologue.un i think trump will oddly turn out to be much more pragmatic. and i think a lot more successful when it comes to the economic issues. >> sean: you are not buying the narrative of donald trump and he might've been blackmailed, now we believe the russians? >> the soviets -- i lived in the soviet union. okay? >> sean: when did you live there? >> in 1983. another former kgb head. they are always looking for ways to undermine the american system. of course. none of this surprises me.
8:13 pm
so they have a file. when i got back to the united states, i heard that they had a file of everyone who i had dinner with in leningrad back then. and they brought people in for questioning. this is what they do. this is what they are all about. i'm sure we will hear more about this as the days go on. the bottom line is, is this country stronger, freer, is united states more influential, are we better off economically than in 2008? >> sean: maybe you think i am mean-spirited. i went through all of the economic statistics. i didn't mention the russia reset didn't work. i didn't mention the cybersecurity, 23 million. you mentioned to me, it was either here or on the radio, you mentioned that you were one of the 23 million people. your files were hacked by the chinese. >> they have the files. >> sean: everybody, putin has them. i want the secret laura ingraham files. >> they were very exciting in the old days. look at where the country is
8:14 pm
today. are they more believing in the progressive agenda than they were when barack obama came into office? i would submit no. yes, he won the popular vote. the democrats said they won the popular vote for sure, they have the coastal elites. but the middle of the country is disaffected. it's not even an ideological thing. their policies don't work. their production of events can be beautiful. but their policies do not work. no matter what he said tonight. >> sean: is this mean-spirited of me? >> yes, terriblyag mean-spirite. >> sean: i don't see any economic hope out of his agenda. i don't -- if you break it down demographically, i african-americans, hispanic americans, home ownership, i don't see one statistic that makes me feel, oh, that was a great eight years. and we doubled the debt. on foreign policy, and i can't name a single place that is better off. and he tried to influence the elections in israel. the only thing i can think of
8:15 pm
and really give him credit for, he was gutsy, he gave the okay to get bin laden. i give him credit for that. i can't think of anything else, and i am trying to be fair. >> bin laden, again, he had that brief shining moment where he l as a strong, successful african-american president withh a beautiful family was an example for a lot of african-american families saying, we can do anything. we can make it in this country. sadly, they kind of slid back into the identity politics. 's producer we had a great opportunity? >> i think an amazing opportunities. cory booker is another person was an amazing opportunity. but it's a reflexive impulse on the side of democrats to slide into the same political correctness, identity politics that has ripped this nation apart at the seams. it is obnoxious, it is toxic, and it is absolutely, not
8:16 pm
to be redundant, but please look at the national rhetoric. >> sean: donald trump, the only thing that i hear that is worrying conservatives at this time is republicans in congress go weak in the knees. do they have a stiff enough backbone? two, a trillion dollar stimulus. how do we pay for it? people are concerned about that. and why did the republicans in the house and senate approve $10 trillion in new debt over ten years? i thought we were the party that balanced budgets? >> they are going to get rid of the department of education, they are going to reduce government except for when they have both houses of congress. >> sean: so they're sayingoi they're going to take on more debt? >> this is a red flag going on for everyone watching the show right now. hold everyone accountable. you held obamama accountable, hd this administration accountable. and all of the republicans who claim that they are going to be fiscal conservatives. you're going to have to do a lot of things carefully in order to do it right. i understand that.
8:17 pm
>> sean: -- that repatriated money, the trillions overseas. >> so much of it is medicare and trump folks said, we are not getting into that. we've got to do a lot of that but this is going to take a -- i they have really good people on their team. i think you are going to see a lot of surprises coming out of trump. they are little unpredictable but i don't think that's about thing. >> sean: laura, great to see you. earlier tonight, president obama gave his farewell speech in chicago and he focused on race relations. let's take a look at that. >> president obama: after my election, there was talk of a post-racial america. and such a vision, however well intended, was never realistic. i have lived long enough to know race relations are better thaned they were 10 or 20 or 30 years ago, no matter what some folks say. we are not where we need to be. and all of us have more work to do. if every economic issue is
8:18 pm
framed as a struggle between a hard-working white middle-class and an undeserving minority, then workers of all shades are going to be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves. >> sean: old versus young, black versus white, the policies the politics of division of the democratic party. the president tonight focusing onon race. he refused to address the tragic epidemic of violence that is devastated mostly african-americans in his hometown. president obama, let's look at the facts, let's look at the numbers. in just the first ten days of 2017, 81 people have been shot so far. last year alone, a startling 762 homicides perpetrated in the windy city, in chicago. sadly, since january 2009, the month president obama took office, chicago has been
8:19 pm
ravaged. 3,929 murders. so why for almost eight years has president obama has failed so miserably to curb violence in his own hometown? o he barely mentioned it. joining us now, he may end up being the first democrat i support. how are you? >> very good, sean. >> sean: new york is a bigger city. far less violent. because you had a mayor that took a lot of heat from a very liberal news media, we are sending all the cops with the areas of the most crime. stop and frisk saved lives. many minority lives.os >> absolutely. l when you had giuliani, bloomberg. now, this other guy, de blasio de blasio. >> sean: they bird?
8:20 pm
>> big bird. he is trying to take the credit. demonstrating outside, the brooklyn bridge, what you want? fry them in the baking come up what ever were saying. he let this thing go on and on. when that creep from baltimore assassinated those cops sitting in that car, he has the blood. that's why every cop turned his back when he went into the hospital. now he is trying to take the credit for the reduction of crime. the credit has to go to the men and women of the new york city police department. as far as chicago goes, i saw aa rahm emanuel standing there. he should've been back out on the street there directing the south side homicides that arere going on. you got a little girl sitting on the stoop shot in the head. a 5-year-old little girl going to school. this doesn't stop. this is the dirty little secret. this is like with our vets, 20 dying every day. these things need to be dealt with. the murders in new york city, they are down, thank god. but chicago is up. >> sean: james t. harris, the president talked about race a lot tonight. he talked about the incendiary a
8:21 pm
division in the country, he isol one of the most responsible, i would argue. but he would insert himself from the beginning of his presidency, the cambridge police acted stupidly, michael brown, ferguson, missouri, freddie gray. baltimore, trayvon martin. george zimmerman. he is a four-time loser. as an attorney, he rushed to judgment, no evidence, no facts, no due process for anybody. and he was wrong every time. why didn't he focus on those numbers? nearly 4,000 killed in his own home city. why did he focus rather on cases he ended up being wrong about that had a big racial component? >> because he couldn't, becausem his progressive policies would fail. instead of inserting himself, i wish president obama would've inserted his family. in the last eight years, have marriages have increased in chicago? in the last eight years, have abortions have decreased in the african-american community?
8:22 pm
in the last eight years, have we seen more americans of african-american descent graduate high school?f less of them incarcerated? the real problem in chicago and across america, sean, is the breakdown of the family. if you have strong, intact families, i truly believe we would not see anywhere near they violence that we areexperiencin. >> sean: just a fact, in the eight years of the obama presidency, african-americans -- we have more african-americans out of the labor force, in poverty, on food stamps, i've given the statistics regularly. why?c why was he unable to fulfill that promise? >> he would have to talk about the black community's slavish devotion that has destroyed them since the great government, since the 1960s, the civil rights movement and the war on poverty. these policies have done more to destroyed not just the black community but the culture as a whole since they've been implemented. >> you know, sean, this president is a very articulate man. he had the opportunity for the
8:23 pm
last eight years to bring us all together. to break down -- i think race relationships now are at the worst that i've seen in the last ten years. with this black lives matter phony nonsense, all they want to do is divide and all they want to do is bring violence. he brings black lives matter into the white house. let's not divide. he was the first black president. he could have brought us all together. what he did was divide, starting with trayvon. on and on and on. then cops that were killed. that poor woman that was shot in orlando. that african-american cop that was gunned down. >> just the other day. >> these officers are putting their lives on the line. those cops in dallas, we all had tears in our eyes. real tears about their families. they were trying to let these people demonstrate peacefully. and they were gunned down. i mean, the outrage in this country. >> sean: that raises, james, another question.
8:24 pm
brought it up earlier. that is the black lives matter group. high-profile race cases that he i mentioned the four high-profile race cases that he inserted himself into as an attorney and president. i think it was unwise especially without due process or evidence being produced. then he invites a group that is on tape chanting "pigs in a blanket, fry them like blankets." how do you possibly justify the association as somebody who says that wants to be a racial healer? >> supposed to be a racial healer. the argument was that the great uniter, not the great divider. we've already talked about it ad nauseam. it is to divide and conquer. the race card has always been an easy card to play. instead of talking about the issues that are at the heart of the problem, the family, we start to look at other areas like gun control, we'll look ato
8:25 pm
other excuses, and the fact of the matter is, when you have al sharpton as your race card, you can understand what the design is, it is to create turmoil. it is to create chaos and that is what we have seen on blast for the last four or five years of the obama administration. >> sean: one of the things we really care about, in the african-american community -- we have to go to cities like chicago but we need to clean up the violence. second thing is, the federalle government, we spend more per capita on average, and we have the worst education rates. reading, writing, science, math. we are 19th, 24th, 25th, respectively in all these different topics. how can we spend more money and have a big failure and no urgency to fix the problem and let local communities have that money and they make those decisions? >> with education, they knock the charter schools. look, i'm for education, whether it be charter schools or public schools, i want the child to be
8:26 pm
able to read and write when they get out. what has a job -- what has a he done with jobs in eight years?ea at least he has got a job, he did nothing with that for eight years, he didn't do anything for jobs. the black community should be outraged of these last eight years, he's done nothing. to me, to listen to him tonight, he speaks so fine. he speaks so well. but what did he do? >> sean: thank you both for being with us. joining us now with much more, our friend syndicated host larry elder is with us. one of the things that i was thinking about as i was watching this tonight is because he didn't respect the separation of powers, equals of government, he did everything by executive fiat, rule of the pen there, i am thinking, donald trump in three hours will wipe out 75% of obama's agenda. they are already now working on
8:27 pm
repealing and replacing obamacare. the only thing i see remaining is the debt, the deficit, the judges that he has appointed, r and of course, internationally, the damage that he has created. what is his legacy? what can he point to? >> his legacy is donald j. trump. that's what his legacy is. and the majority of the american people think that we are the wrong track of foreign policy. the follow-up on what was just said, he is echoing the thought of people like cornel west who said under obama, the black economy has suffered. black net worth is down, home ownership, home equity down, it hasn't been this wide in 25 years. sean, you and i have talked 2 about the very small labor force participation rate for black men. it has never been this low since they started tracking number.
8:28 pm
because of obama's policies. taxing,, spending, regulating, putting pressure on the backs of the american people, the backs of job creators, it does not work. >> sean: i grew up in a town called franklin square. it's in long island, new york. if i ever became president, i know people would laugh at that, i am just saying. if i was the president -- >> stranger things have happened. >> sean: it's not that funny, larry. but if i was the president and i read in my hometown where i grew up, the town i come from, when it's all said and done, that is where i'm going to be, i think i would have gone back and paid a lot of attention to 4,000 people in my town where killed and 80 period. i think i would've been there often to solve the problem. why i was he missing in action n chicago? >> good question. you look at all that left wingg brainpower, rahm emanuel, jesse jackson, and of course, obama
8:29 pm
has adopted chicago as his adopted hometown. that ought to be a shining city on a hill. instead, its finances are in the toilet. we talked about the violence. they've done about 750 homicides in 2016. that's substantially higher than 2015. 70%, by the way, sean, of these homicides are unsolved. in a city that is a third white, a third black, and a third hispanic, 70% of them are black on black. i have no idea where his policy is on that. >> sean: i by the way, are you following don't know either. this hysteria on some of the other networks about the russian spies and what might'veu been told donald trump? and what barack obama might have heard? there might have been blackmailable material? donald trump is tweeting tonight that of course it is fake news. and he pointed out that michael cohen was never in prague and a lot of what has reported tonight
8:30 pm
has not been verified on other networks. but is that hysteria to run with a story before any verification. what you make of that? >> i think donald trump is bothered by the notion that, but for vladimir putin, he would not have won the presidency. we have a bunch of conflict. george w. bush was lying on all 16 of our intelligence agencies, people are yelling that. i'm not sure who to believe. i do want to say this, sean, your becoming president is just as likely as it donald trump a becoming president a year ago. >> sean: if i'm going there, i'm dragging you with me. you and everybody else. >> i >> sean: [laughs] want to be the press secretary. that would be the most entertaining job for you.
8:31 pm
i guess the thing that is so amazing to me, a president that gave a speech tonight. saying his farewell. everyone is so worked up in the news media about, well, the russians may have tried, i assume the russians are hacking. they packed the white house, the statement martens, the department of defense irs, china did in 2014 and we haven't done anything. , wikileaks have been on the scene for ten years. and we have a president that literally tried to unseat an ally of ours using tax taxpayer money. what you make of that democracy? >> they also hacked john brennan, adi cia director's, personal email. even the democrat from california said that barack obama should have done a lot more to stop cyber attacks. what barack obama said is, hee told putin to knock it off. and putin suddenly knocked it off. except he didn't knock it off. the fact of the matterav is, they have not taken cyber security seriously enough, and that is why this country has
8:32 pm
been exposed the way it has been exposed. >> sean: we need to fix it. good to see you, my friend. >> sean hannity in 2020. >> sean: no, trump in 2020. when i come back, we go one-on-one with obama's former economic advisor, austan goolsbee. start your day with the number one choice of dentists. philips sonicare removes significantly more plaque versus oral-b 7000. experience this amazing feel of clean. innovation and you. philips sonicare. save now when you buy philips sonicare. tech: don't let a cracked windshtrust safelite.plans. with safelite's exclusive "on my way text"... you'll know exactly when we'll be there. giving you more time for what matters most.

8:34 pm
>> sean: welcome back to "hannity," reaction to the farewell address, >> sean: welcome back to "hannity," reaction to the farewell address, the old buddy. the person that got us in this yoonomic mess. oh, look at that. you had to be there.he former economic advisor, my buddy, austan goolsbee. i'm not even going to say anything. i'm going to give you a chance. our friendship. the era of obama, thank god, is over. but while you speak about all the great economics, i will put up on the side of the screen the facts and the truth about the last eight years. we will play a little experiment. go. >> okay. if the dallas cowboys are 13-3,
8:35 pm
they won the nfc. if you're going to concentrate on the three losses, that is okay. but i'm going to concentrate on the 13 wins. >> sean: wait until you see this tonight when you get home. >> number one, there was no depression, and there very well could have been in 2009 given the conditions when he came into office. number two, longest string of private sector job creation in the united states.. >> sean: separate job growth. >> we've added more than 50 million jobs. not one demographic, the demographic is private sector jobs. 15 million. if you look at all of this post-recession period, poverty has gotten better, food stamps went down. the home ownership rate has finally stabilized after the housing crisis.
8:36 pm
>> sean: can we put those numbers up?mo go ahead. >> we were losing 800,000 jobs a month and now we are adding more than 2 billion a year. 2 million. >> sean: what about the doubling of the debt? what about the worst recovery since the '40s? the lowest home ownership rate in 50 years. >> well, well, here you go again. all you want to do is go dwell on that first year. you know perfectly well -- no, when the recession ended, all of those measure got better. >> sean: all right, we will count year number one, year number five, and year at number seven. >> did you see the line in the president's speech, sean, he is tired of arguing. >> sean: i had a hard time watching it. >> he said, if you are tired of arguing with a stranger on thedo internet, why don't you go meet with someone in person and have
8:37 pm
a discussion? i thought of you, sean. t i thought, i love our talks. we did, we had dinner. >> sean: didn't i say nice things about you in that article. >> you did, i admitted. your viewers will go crazy. >> sean: he is very charming charming -- >> i have to take you to dinner, but i have to know, sean, do you want fries with your dinner? >> sean: [laughs] i am staying away from carbs. more with austan goolsbee after the break. obama's farewell, it has been a long, brutal eight years. thank god it is coming to an end. an end end. as a control enthusiast,

we continue with former obama economic advisor austan goolsbee. we have been friends a long time, i am going to give you a chance. i am sure this is an emotional night for you. you were there at grant park eight years ago, weren't you? >> indeed, i was. >> sean: okay, i will give you the chance to ask any question you want about obama and i will answer. >> okay. sean, does it bother you that barack obama is massively more popular with the american people than donald trump is? >> sean: massively? donald trump's approval rating -- hang on, hello, do you want me to answer? you host "the austan goolsbee show" and you don't let the guy talk. amazing, you are like me. >> i learned from you, >> sean: [laughs] that is probably true. fair point. the latest poll on trump was about 47% approval.
8:44 pm
latest i've seen on obama, 48% to 51%. they seem about equal. >> no, 58%, even higher than ronald reagan was. does that bother you? >> sean: i never met the guy, but i think a lot of people seem to like him. he comes across as sincere, and i think a lot of people don't follow him as closely as i do. i think he has never broken from his rigid, radical indoctrination and i think it has hurt him. had he been more pragmatic, had had a sister soldier era of big government, he could have been more successful. besides obamacare, what has he done? >> a, he helped us avoid the depression. >> sean: again, yeah... >> b, obamacare, we will see if it's gone. >> sean: it's gone. >> he put in consumer financial protection and rewrote the financial sector. spread do that will be gone too.
8:45 pm
>> he killed osama bin laden. >> sean: i give him credit. >> he saved the auto industry. got to give him some credit. i know you don't like it, but he reopened relations with cuba. >> sean: making friends with murdering dictators is a plus for you? >> i know, i said i knew youou wouldn't like it. sean, you still have to explain why his popularity as he is leaving office is higher than ronald reagan's was when he left office. >> sean: reagan created 21 million new jobs in the longest period of peace time and economic growth in american history to that point. and he took over a far worse economy than obama. 21% interest rates, double digit inflation. double unemployment. >> sean: yes, facts. everything i said is a fact. >> he took over a bad economy. it was not as bad as the one in 2008. going into 2009. >> sean: i am honestly -- i
8:46 pm
-- >> i'm not belittling -- ronald reagan's recovery was a very strong recovery. >> sean: i am honestly -- i give you an eight, because you are a professor. i am going to grade your loyalty for barack hussein obama. you are the most loyal soldier, i love loyalty. i admire you are probably his greatest defender, you are the best at it and i give you an a+. >> that is kind of you. >> sean: you defended the impossible but i give you an a+. >> i am only loyal to the facts, sean. >> sean: god bless austan goolsbee, and i meant what i said in that article. i up next, tonight on "hannity"... >> we are going to use every u tool at our disposal, through regulation, legislation, so that we can save people from this mess. >> sean: speaker paul ryan saying republicans plan to repeal and replace obamacare concurrently. finally, that is the way to do it, so how are they going to do it? up next. do

has been a struggle. i considered all my options with my doctor, who recommended once-daily toujeo®. now i'm on the path to better blood sugar control. toujeo® is a long-acting insulin from the makers of lantus®. it releases slowly, providing consistent insulin levels for a full 24 hours, proven full 24-hour blood sugar control, and significant a1c reduction. and along with toujeo®, i'm eating better and moving more. toujeo® is a long-acting, man-made insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. it contains 3 times as much insulin in 1 milliliter as standard insulin. don't use toujeo® to treat diabetic ketoacidosis, during episodes of low blood sugar, or if you're allergic to insulin. allergic reaction may occur and may be life threatening. don't reuse needles or share insulin pens, even if the needle has been changed. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which can be serious and life threatening. it may cause shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, and blurred vision. check your blood sugar levels daily while using toujeo®. injection site reactions may occur.
8:49 pm
don't change your dose or type of insulin without talking to your doctor. tell your doctor if you take other medicines and about all your medical conditions. insulins, including toujeo®, in combination with tzds (thiazolidinediones) may cause serious side effects like heart failure that can lead to death, even if you've never had heart failure before. don't dilute or mix toujeo® with other insulins or solutions as it may not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. toujeo® helps me stay on track with my blood sugar. ask your doctor about toujeo®.

>> sean: welcome back to "hannity." president-elect donald trump promised to repeal-replace obamacare obamacare on day one. the race is now on for congress to come up with a plan. speaker paul ryan said this >> it is our goal to bringri it
8:52 pm
all together concurrently. we already showed people what we believe obamacare should be replaced with. we will use every tool at ourur disposal, through legislation, through regulation, to bring replace concurrent along with repeal so we can save people with this mess. mercedes schlapp, a week ago paul ryan was saying, oh, i think we will repeal it sometime this year. >> right, they have to make sure 20 million americans are covered, that the taxes they get repealed, which is a good thing, that the revenue somehow is replaced, and they've got to make sure that the whole essence of our health care system doesn't collapse. because the bottom line here, sean, if it gets on thee republican's shoulders that health care gets out of control, cost-wise, coverage-wise, it will be the republicans inheriting the mess from obama. >> sean: did you know it is illegal to buy a catastrophic plan? and expensive for young people,
8:53 pm
ideal, high deductible. takes care of accidents, cancer, heart attack, god forbid. if you have that and you have health care savings accounts and allow these co-ops to develop like in wichita, kansas, a great system there, that would solve the problem to me. >> it would definitely help as well as increasing competition by selling insurance across state lines. what a concept. this is about increasing competition, having more choices for consumers. and obamacare, president obama promised to make it inexpensive. these premiums rise not just individual markets but family markets. i think, sean, it's an opportunity for the republicans to show that they can not only repeal, which would be the easier side of it, they've got to have a positive vision. i know the democrats want the republicans to fail. >> not this democrat.
8:54 pm
i want to the country to succeed. >> you are a patriot though. >> do you worry, mercedes, about a trillion dollars in infrastructure spending, do you worry about raising the debt ceiling 10 trillion? >> you know, of course i worry. we think about our own children who have to bear -- >> sean: why aren't republicans doing that? why don't they go with the penny plan or a freeze on spending and get rid of baseline budgets? >> what about bipartisanship, tax reform -- 's video don't we have to pay for it first. >> that's right. trump wants to use bonds for private individuals to help get private money.ds >> sean: energy independence. but we've got to have the money first. >> we got to have the money, we've got to get a plan and bring both sides in. >> you know the reality, the fact of entitlement, the bulk of our budget. >> sean: i've got to let youou go.
