I think there are issues with the editor, do not let me compile my program correctly

my answer for step three was:

https.get("https://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", function(response) {});

//Problem: We need a simple way to look at a user's badge count and JavaScript points
//Solution: use node.js to conect to treehouse's Api to get profile information to printout

var https = require('https');
var http = require('http');
var username = "chalkers";

function printMessage(userName, badgeCount, points) {
  var message = userName + " has " + badgeCount + " total badge(s) and " + points + " in JavaScript";

//Connect to the API url (http://www.teamtreehouse.com/username.json)
//var req = https.get("https://teamtreehouse.com/" + username + ".json", function(response) {
 // console.log(response.statusCode);

http.get("http://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", function(response))

//Read the data
//Parse the data
//Print the data
printMessage("Gabriel", 1000, 200000);
