>> if the american people could sue congress for malpractice, my republican friends would be in deep trouble. >> i am confident that we just made a vote to stop this death spiral. >> if you have a pre-existing condition, you may have just lost your health care. >> welcome to the beginning of the end of obamacare. >> this is a fraud, this bill, and we are going to fight it with all we have. >> we will get this passed through the senate. i feel so confident. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo and alisyn camerota. >> good morning and welcome to your new day. up first, the fight over health care reform starts all over again. the senate has it now and they're saying they are going to create their own bill. >> president trump celebrating his first legislative victory from the white house to new york. so how will lawmakers answer constituents who are angry about this gop plan? we have it all covered for you.
let's begin live on capitol hill. >> reporter: good morning. many house republicans are breathing a sigh of relief. they are actually back in their home districts taking a step forward to fulfill a significance promise to the american people, pushing forward and passing their own health care plan. but there are already problems with this. many senate republicans looking at this and rejecting key provisions. some even vowing to start from scratch. >> i think we'll get it through. much mcconnell knows how to do things. >> the republican effort to repeal and replace obamacare now in the hands of the senate with a controversial bill that narly passed in the house. >> the bill is passed. >> faces an uphill battle. >> it could change a little bit. could get maybe even better. >> senators on both sides of the aisle aren't in any hurry, vowing to do things their way. >> mr. president, i'm sorry to disappoint you. this bill in its current form is not getting through the senate. no way, no way. >> the senate will write its own
bill. i don't think the house bill necessarily predicts what is in the senate bill. >> the legislation passed in the house eliminates the tax penalty for americans who choose not to buy insurance, replaces the generous substies and rolls back medicaid expansion. it increase it is limit on what insurance can charge older enroll lees and allows insurance to charge customers more if they have a pre-existing condition. among those that would lose the most in this plan, those with pre-existing conditions, the elderly and low income americans. while younger americans, the healthy, middle and upper class and insurance companies stand to benefit. democrats who voted unanimously against the bill taunting republicans after the vote, which they say will be a political liability in 2018.
>> some of you have said, well, they'll fix it in the senate. but you have every provision of this bill tattooed on your forehead. you will blow in the dark on this one. >> republican senator lindsey graham stressing the bill should be viewed with caution because it was rushed through the house without a cost and impact estimate. >> we should have had a cbo estimate. i don't always agree with cbo. in fact, quite frequently i disagree. >> some house republicans even admitting they hadn't read the legislation before voting yes. >> i did not. but i can assure you my staff did. >> i would be dishonest if i individually read it. that's why we have a legislative staff. >> something then congress paul ryan blasted democrats for in 2009. >> i don't think we should pass bills that we haven't read. >> we shouldn't rush this thing through. >> senate republicans vowing they are going to read the legislation that they put
forward. we expect that cbo score is going to take a couple of weeks before it gets to senators hands. after that it takes several weeks to go through this deliberative process, a process that will not be rushed. they will consider some compromises. that bill goes back to the house and the debate starts all over again. >> appreciate it. let's discuss. we have reporter and editor at large for cnn politics, chris cillizza, april ryan and cnn chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta. as we look heading into the senate, you covered the obamacare battle. is this similar to what happened back then in terms of the acrimony of it going out of the house? did the senate back then say we're not going to have anything like this? is this like that process? >> well, thinking back when that happened, they rushed it through as well. but they did one thing that they
did, they had a cbo score. they don't have cbo score here. you know, they wanted to get it passed because, as then vice president biden said, this was a big deal. so they rushed it through. and then they didn't communicate it well to the public, nor to lawmakers, but they rushed it through. and then they did the build up of communicating what it was later. but here what we know is what the house passed. we know it is not necessarily fair to certain groups, okay? but it benefits those who are healthy, those who are rich or wealthy, what have you with tax credits. here is the issue. the issue is the cbo score here versus a cbo score there. people understood what they were trying to do and then the president even said you can't -- you won't lose your health insurance. so there's still things to be tweaked and they thought they had it there. things need to be definitely tweaked here and they don't have a cbo score.
the devil is in the details for both plans from back in the obama administration to this administration. >> yeah. always so true. so before we get to the politics involved in prassing this, let' talk about the policy. what do you think is most notable in this gop plan at the doctor? >> there is a list of things that are going to be out, that are no longer going to be part of what people can expect from their health care insurance, if they could get it. many of which you have talked about. i think two of the big ones are this idea there won't be a guaranteed protection for people with pre-existing conditions. >> the states will set up high risk pools for people with pre-existing conditions. >> states can get waivers and as part of the waivers if someone lets their insurance lapse, they are no longer going to be protected. by the way 30 million people let their insurance lapse because it is expensive sometimes. that's part of the issue. the high risk pools are for
people who then would be charged too much on the individual market for their health care insurance. they could go to a high risk pool, which is a subsidized pool. the government is helping subsidize their care and that's one of the things they're leaning on. part of the problem is these have been tried before. they're really expensive. you're taking the highest risk patients and putting them in one place and as a rule they were generally underfunded and the people part of those pools couldn't afford the insurance they were getting any ways and these are the people that actually need health care. they are the ones utilizing the system. and the data from previous years shows that. >> as soon as you introduce a condition, it is no longer a guarantee. and if states can find a way out of it, you are going to have states who will do that, chris cillizza, and that is the obvious concern and it negates a core promise of president trump, which is we're going to keep pre-existing conditions. so when you look at this in
terms of how it helps the gop, because they're celebrating, what is the plus/minus for them moving forward. >> to your first point chris, a waiver means you can waive it, right? it's right there in the word. so to say it guarantees coverage isn't right. why do they think they need to do this? i think they recognize it is a giant political risk because obamacare is more popular than it's been almost since conception. the kaiser family foundation was a poll monthly since the bill being introduced. 48% approved of it, obamacare, in their most recent poll. the negatives were much higher before because, again, this last hour the challenge of taking something from people that they had, even if they don't love it, taking from them is difficult. so why do you do it in the face of issues about freezing medicaid expansion, in the face
of, as dr. gupta talked about, the face of these high risk polls? because you have spent seven years telling your base if we get full control of washington, house, senate, white house, if you vote for us, turn out, vote for us, give that to us, we will get rid of this law you hate so much. and the republican base does hate this law. it is indicative in their mind of everything wrong with the federal government, overreach, trying to tell you how to live your life, trying to man did things you don't need or want. and that's why they did it. in a choice between not great and risky and terrible, they went with not great. >> okay. so april fast forward to the senate. so now the battle begins anew in the senate. they go back to the drawing board and there are all sorts of senates from, say, ohio, alaska, west virginia who recognize that this could hurt their constituents in terms of medicaid expansion. so how do you see this playing
out in the senate? >> well, from what i understand from the sources that i have in the senate, they're going to start from scratch because they said this will not pass. you have to remember, this is not democrat or republican. this is about people. let's look at kentucky, for instance. a lot of people in appalachia did not like obamacare, but they liked the aca. and then you bring in something like this where they may lose coverage with issues of substance abuse, maternity issues, mental health and then a vast majority of people are people who have pre-existing conditions. this does not work for a large portion of society. it is personal. it hits people at their core. and, so, the senators recognize this. and again on this time during rece recess, they are going to hear from the american public. social media is going abecause
-- abuzz this. people are very upset. so people are making their statements loud and clear right now, and i believe the volumes will come up as we go. but senators are hearing and listening and they see what happened yesterday and they realize what they have to do. they have to change something to help people vs. taking money from them or making them unsure of their insurance. >> but there is a basic proposition at play here that should be addressed. chris raised it. which is this, i don't need maternity care. the idea of ala cart services sounds good to many people. i don't need all these things. i don't want to pay for what she needs. what is the reality of how insurance works? >> i think that may be one of the most critical issues here for the consumer or the potential patients of which we are all potential patients,
right? but these essential health benefits, this idea you buy an insurance plan that needs to have basics because a lot of people don't know what they need until they need it. so that's part of the problem. that's the nature of insurance. so if you don't have certain things in the health benefits and then all of a sudden you need them, your insurance plan hasn't done you any good. for example these skinny plans that we talked about may not have inpatient hospitalization covered. okay. so you're 25 years old, you're immortal in your own mind. you think i just need a skinny plan. then you get into a car accident or diagnosed with some disease, that is the most common reason you are going to be going to the hospital and all of a sudden your plan doesn't cover it. that's part of the issue. i think it's a really important point. about maternity health because people scratch their heads and say men, why do you need maternity health benefits? the problem is that otherwise only women are going to need those and that's gender rating, charging women more because they are women. when you make everyone buy
maternity, that's how you help defray the cost so you are not penalizing somebody in this case for possibly getting pregnant. that's why you have that. but the whole idea is to have everyone have a minimum level of care at least. >> and there is another issue, mental health. >> thank you. thanks, april. we do want to talk about that coming up. we happen to have breaking news for you all right now. breaking news from west virginia, the ups cargo plane has crashed in a wooded area. this is at the airport in charleston. we're looking live right now at the scene coming from wchs. people are believed to be trapped inside that plane still. it is unclear what the level of injuries are. the faa says this aircraft struck its left wing on the run way during landing. it looks like a clear day there weather-wise. the investigation is underway into what happened. we'll bring your more details as soon as they become available.

the gop advanced a bill to the senate after narrowly passing in the house. but one congressman says he still has some reservations. good morning, congressman. >> good morning to you. >> congressman, you have some reservations. that's of course natural. but why did you vote yes this time when a few weeks ago you were a no vote? >> i voted yes because ultimately this debate came down to whether or not we simply advance this debate to the senate. and what took place over the last ten days or so, i thought ultimately i thought an
advanceable bill and prior to that without those two amendments, i didn't think it was the case. >> did you read this entire bill? >> yeah. i wouldn't say -- yes. i turned through every page. as to whether or not i got through some of the details on some of the pages, no. but, yes, i attempted to read the entire bill. >> but you glossed over some of it? >> you would too if you read through it, yes. but, again, it was relatively modest as these bills go. we're talking a couple hundred pages as opposed to a couple thousands pages. >> why not dive into it? why can't you say you read it thoroughly? >> i read it as thoroughly as i could. i think the amendments, which were really the previous question for me because i voted no on the previous bill were a couple pages long and i absolutely in detail form read through those.
you have an entire staff to really vet these things. so i read through the bill. i had my staff read through the bill. i think we have taken a deep look at this thing and i think it's fundamentally about two things. it is about protecting people with pre-existing conditions, which i think it does. >> you do? because let me stop you there for one second because the way we understand it is it will be up to governors. it will pass this down to states and the states can seek a waiver for the pre-existing conditions, but they would set up high risk pools, but those might be more expensive and not cover everyone? >> i don't think that's the case. that's why the original $15 billion was there in the original amendment dealing with high risk pools and the additional was added to that. and again let me go back to what i was saying, which is fundamentally it is about trying to protect people with pre-existing while concurrently trying to address the fact there has been a rapid increase in premiums for people.
if you have an $8,000 deductible, but you only have $1,000 in your savings account, you don't have insurance. and what we've seen is the choices have narrowed down to one provider and premiums went up by 30%. there are a lot of small business out there and a lot of people struggling in the individual health care marketplace who haven't had insurance. and what this bill auz attempting to do is help both those populations. >> congressman, you have been honest about how president trump basically threatened you. he threatened to run an opponent against you if you didn't vote for this. did that sway your vote? >> absolutely not. because after he threatened me, i voted no. there are only three people that voted no in the last bill, and i was one of them. when it came before the budget committee, i said this bill is not ready for prime time. it didn't have the two amendments i was eluding so.
i went no on the final vote saying, no, i wasn't going to vote. i was part of the group that ultimately stopped the bill back in march. so that didn't drive the train. i think that ideas ought to drive the train and our districts and the viewpoints of those districts ought to drive the train. that's what i've tried to include in my calculation of this. >> after you voted no, after the president had basically sent a threat to you courtesy of nick mulvaney, then what did the president say to you? >> nothing. >> and what did that original threat sound like? >> it sounded like the thing that doesn't make any member of congress's day, you know. if you don't do this, i'm going to do this. when that comes from the president of the united states, that doesn't make one's day. but that's all past history. now we're looking at a bill that i think advances to the senate and we will have a whole new debate in the senate. that's why i think it is so important if you are on the winning side of the debate, if
this happens to be what you agreed on, you take a breath and agree there are more bites of the apple on this thing. if you are on the opposite side of the equation, you need to take a breath and say, wait a minute, nothing has changed. the senate said we're going to put the breaks on this thing. we'll see what they do and if they do something, it's going to come back to the house for yet another debate. >> but congressman, this is interesting because that is a nuance i'm not sure all of your constituents will understand or appreciate. what you're saying is this is just the start of a conversation. i know this wouldn't be the final product, so it is no skin off my nose to vote on this one. but do you fear democrats making hey of the votes that republicans made in campaign ads and using this against you, even though it's not the final product, using it against you in the midterms? >> certainly. i mean, that's got to be done. believe me, anything that can be
used against you will be used against you in the world of politics. so i think that, you know, this is going to be a harmful vote for some of my colleagues in the house. it could be a harmful vote for me. we'll see how it plays out. i think that in large part going to play out based on what happens next. and, so, you know, if it was to make it through the senate back to the house, passed in conference and to make it to the white house and we saw a decrease in people's health insurance premiums in the individual marketplace, i think this could be a plus. if nothing happens and it was just a vote that didn't go anywhere, i think it could be used against you in the political sense. >> thank you very much as we talk to you here on new day. >> any pleasure. >> chris. >> so ten years after the mysterious disappearance of three-year-old gripped the world, there is still few answers. coming up, a preview of a cnn

we have breaking news right now. the april job res port has been released by the labor department. this was a strong report, you guys. 211,000 new jobs. march was a bit lower. so there was something happening in march that caused employers to be more caution, but they bounced back in april there. and that's a decent number and really good when you look at the unemployment rate. at 4.4%, that is now the lowest unemployment rate since may
2007. think about that for a minute. may 2007 was basically the very end, the very end of the very good times of the early 2000s before the financial crisis, the banking crisis and a global economic recession. so that has been steady declining and now hitting a new decade low there. let me show you the sectors really quickly because i see broad based hiring. 19,000 in health care. this is critical. we have been adding tens of thousands of health care jobs every month for years. a lot of folks are going back and crunching the numbers in health care reform. there is an opt schism among hospitals with a big new base of insured customers, if you will. they have been hiring a lot over the past few years as obama care has expanded the health care system. we will have to watch and see if they slow because of trump care. president trump really kind of revising some of the interest in
the manufacturing sector. 35,000, so this is 41,000 new manufacturing jobs over the past three reports. compare that with last year, there were job losses actually. let me see you the futures market. up a little bit here. not a big reaction in the stock market overall. but this is a solid report and paints a solid picture of what's happening in the economy. i would like to see wages up more than 2.5%. i would like to see those up a little bit more, but a lot of congressmen think that is coming down the pike. >> boy that health care number pops in light of what we're seeing in health care right now. that is one of the fastest growing in job history. these numbers are now going to factor into the bottom line. it shows, one, the integral importance of the health care industry in this country in terms of jobs and how much money they make translates to much money is in america's pockets.
>> no question. look, the health care sector is a huge part of the economy. and it definitely it does kind of blend into this political debate that's happening here. but let's take a step back and look at that big number. that is a wow number. the fact that it is -- that the unemployment is the lowest it has been since before the recession in 2008, since may of 2007, that is a really big deal. and there is no question that president trump is going to try to take credit for it, whether he deserves it or not, whether or not it was president obama that was saying, as he was walking out the doors, hey, guys it's getting better, really trust me. it doesn't matter. if president trump declares victor from it, he will not be the first person. he will be the up teenth president trying to gain credit for jobs even though he didn't necessarily do it. but christine talked about wages not necessarily going up. a lot of the trump voters who i saw across the country at
rallies, it wasn't necessarily they didn't have the job, it was the jobs they had didn't pay them enough to get ahead. so that wage number is really key for trump voters. >> well, obviously you're right. president trump will trumpet this, as he should. this is on his watch happening. but it is valuable to take a look back and remind ourselves that right before the great recession -- well during the great recession there was all of that debate over is stimulus the answer? you know, president obama pushed for stimulus. republicans said that's not going to work. they fought it. so it took ten years, but it seems as though that worked. >> no question democrats are going to say exactly that, that the stimulus package that system democrats lost their jobs over, that they got voted out of office for voting for worked and
republicans are going to say, no, no, no it's cyclical. it's the interest rate. whatever it is that fits their low government, low spending philosophy. you know, i think it is going to take some time to analyze what the real answer is. but where i am in washington and looking at the political debate, there is no question that that's where democrats are going to taut, particularly going into and we are already talking about it, especially after the health care vote yesterday, the 2018 election where democrats are desperate to try to retake the house. >> and the markets will give you a third answer. you kept rates at basically zero baseline. >> this is what you and i were talking about. there is no answer when it comes to the economy, no definitive answer. >> the answer depends on where you sit and your point of view. >> except the reality is no matter what your point of view, the economy is very artificial right now. when that stops, then we'll see
what the true robust nature of the economy is on its own. no public events scheduled for the president today. but do you think the big bill going through the house and these numbers may praompt a little trump action? >> i'm guessing that's going to be the start, twitter and knowing his propensity for going out and declaring victory, we certainly how it in a really remarkable way in the rose garden like i have never seen at such an early stage of a big piece of legislation. so it's hard to imagine he doesn't do it. but, look, i think at the end of the day what we're looking at here is a very much needed, much needed victory and a few ws on the column for the president after a pretty rocky 100 days. so who can blame him? >> thank you very much for the bottom line. great to see you. >> you too. >> while he was finishing up against, this week a cnn hero was already making a difference
in the lives of cam bode yan children by giving them access to a simple bar of soap. >> when children do not wash their hands, they are vulnerable to illnesses, which unfortunately can take their life. no child should suffer because there was no soap available. my hope for cambodia is youth, for them to understand they could take their own health into their own hands just by a simple act such as hand washing. >> all right. go to cnn heroes.com to learn more how he saved lives while helping the local economy and the environment. while you are there, you can nominate someone you think should be the 2017 cnn hero. >> two disturbing incidents involving racial slurs in fenway park. but one cool dad turned his experience into a teachable moment for his son on his sixth

it has been ten years since madeleine vanished while on a family vacation in portugal. tonight a cnn report on the search for madeleine. we return to the scene of the crime. >> around 9:30, 9:25, matthew was going upstairs. he said to kate, i'll take it. i'll go and check on her. he went into the apartment. he went to the door of the children's bedroom, but he did not go in. >> he looked in. he saw the twins cots to the door. i'm sure it is something that he regrets massively. >> less than 30 minutes later,

mcann, there has never been a trace of her. >> there have been 9,000 reported sitings of her over the years. there still isn't any evidence she is dead or alive. scotland yard says there is zero evidence she's dead. they haven't found a body. her mother full of regret of course for how they handled everything that week on vacation. but she still buys madeleine christmas presents every year hoping she'll come home. they wonder if she was taken into a black market adoption ring. >> we always hear that. does that exist? >> it does. or some type of sex trafficking ring, which also exists in portugal. so the question is where is she and we'll take a look at how that all unfolded and how she was taken that night. >> thank you so much for previewing it. be sure to watch tonight at 10:00 p.m. only on cnn. >> all right. so let's talk about another
story here. you had a pair of ugly incidents at fenway park in boston this week. on monday a few red sox fans shouted racial slurs at adam jones. the next night a fan was barred for life after using a racial slur to describe a ken yan's woman rendition of the national an them. joining us now is calvin, who sat next to the man who used the slur. more importantly, calvin reported him to security. calvin, thank you for joining us. >> good morning, thanks. >> so take us through it. what did you observe? what did you do? >> well, we got to the ballpark. it was the day after the jones' incident, and the kenya woman sang the national anthem. did a great job. and then right as soon as she was done the fan next to me said
she sang too long and n-worded it up. he used the slur to describe her sings. i said what? i wanted to be sure i heard him correctly and he repeated it and ii repeated it to him, i want to be clear that's what you said. he said that's right, and i standby it. >> now, you had particularly sensitivity given that you had your six-year-old next to you and he's a buy racial kid and you had your father-in-law from africa. >> he's from haidi. >> to did your father-in-law hear this, too? >> no. the fan leaned over and said it directly to me. he was on my left and the rest of my family was on my right. at first i was confused by the timing of it. you know, it seemed like he would be on his best behavior you would think the day after the jones' incident and he saw me sitting with my family who is mixed race. it was surprising he would say
it to me of all people. but then looking back, i think it was deliberate. he knew about the timing. he knew about the context. he saw my family and he decided it was going to say it anyway because he wanted to prove the point he could say whatever he wanted to whoever he wanted, which i think is sadly becoming more of a theme recently with the national political climate having a lot of hatred in it. >> so what did you decide to do? >> i immediately after icon firmed three times after he said what i thought he said was to get an usher and my main goal was to get my family out of a situation. i didn't want to sit here for the next three years with my by racial son and my black father-in-law, so i wanted to make sure we moved. >> what happened? >> red sox security jumped on it. they sound the assistant director of security. they got my family to different seats and then they took the man
and brought him out to the concourse and i spent the first few innings answering questions and going in and out to identify the man. they had me identify him positively to his face and say what he had said and the man earlier had said, i standby it. but once he was confronted by security and me, he denied it. although i was told by sam kennedy after the fan was ejected, he did admit to saying what he said. >> they said he's going to be banned from fenway, a very unusual move. do you think it's the right move? >> it's not for me to say. i wanted to get us out of that situation. i understood that it was my word against his initially. although, i understand that he did admit saying it. again, it is not my call. but i do think that the sox wanted, especially in the wake of the adam jones incident, to prove they were taking this seriously and they had zero tolerance for it. i think it is better to error on the side of we're not going to
tolerate this. >> what did you tell your son? >> i didn't tell him anything at the game? it was his first red sox game. he turned six yesterday. and he didn't, you know, ask why we were moving seats. but once we were in the news about it, i felt like i needed to talk to him before he went to school yesterday on his sixth birthday and prepare him in case someone said, hey, i saw your dad on tv or i saw in the newspaper. and i tried to talk to him in broad, g-rated terms about racism and what had happened. i said this man, the man next to us, he said a word that was mean toward black people and he got kicked out of the stadium. and my son very sweetly said i thought it was over with black people and white people being separate because we had talked to him previously about jackie robinson and desegregation. and i had to tell him that part of our past is history, but, you know, these tensions continue
and some people are still really angry and this withman seemed t one of them. >> all our parents know, our job is to show your kids how to do the right thing and you did that for your son and that's a beautiful memory in and of itself, along with photos of being at the game with your father and law and your son. thank you for coming forward and telling your story. happy birthday to your son. >> thanks a lot, chris. it is a friday. how about we start the weekend with a little good stuff. what do you say? next. uld always answer hispanic. so when i got my ancestry dna results it was a shocker. i'm from all nations. it puts a hunger in your heart to want to know more. is

comics talking about the gop health care is not. >> so they did it. obamacare is finally officially dead. is something they can say once the bill goes to the senate then gets out of committee, is debated on the floor where amended could be added, where the difference between the two bills are ironed out, then voted on in the house and senate again, then sent to the white house for the president to sign, which is why they were chanting, we're one-third of the way through the process. >> almost every group is against this bill. the american cancer society, the ama, the aarp, the triple, h and h and preparation h. and they know a pain in the ass when they see one. >> trump passed the bill into the end zone. i'm told that analogy didn't make sense saying he hit a grand
slam into the net and slammed the puck into the hoop. >> house republicans today voted on and passed an obamacare replacement bill without knowing how much it would cost. though, i'm not surprised. they also voted on an obama replacement without knowing the cost. >> it's funny until people start losing their coverage. that's why it's got to get ironed out. >> time for cnn news room with john berman. happy friday. >> you guys have a great week d weekend. we've got a lot of breaking news this morning, so let's get to it. >> this is cnn breaking news. the breaking news this friday, the lowest unemployment rate in ten years. 4.4%. that is a good one. a brand-new jobs report out moments ago found the u.s. economy added 211,000
