tv   Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs  CNN  June 26, 2017 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
people. >> yeah. >> "early start" begins right now. i don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have enough time to review the senate bill. we should not be voting on this next week. >> they say they're going to fix health care, premiums are going to go down. there's no way the republican bill brings down premiums. >> there's no way in god's earth that this bill should be passed this week. >> we don't have too much of a choice because the alternative is the dead carcass of obamacare. >> dead carcass? the republican health care bill facing a critical week. the senate republican leadership is pushing for a vote by friday, and as early as today we could find out the true cost and real effects of the senate health plan. >> president trump now acknowledging that russia meddled in the u.s. election and putting blame squarely on former president barack obama. good morning, and welcome to "early start." i hope you had a good weekend.
2:01 am
i'm allisison kosik. >> i'm dave briggs. monday, june 26th, 5:00 a.m. in the east. coming as soon as today the congressional budget office assessment of the senate health care bill. that's the same cbo score that nearly scuttled the house version of obamacare repeal and replace, and the senate's 52 republicans have an even narrower path to victory than their house colleagues. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell can lose just two votes. at least five republicans have already said they cannot support the bill in its current form. and that's before the cbo score comes out. >> health and human services secretary tom price is making sweeping promises to help get the bill across the finish line. here's an example for -- he says that a deep cut to medicaid, it's not really a cut. >> what i'm telling you is the system, the plan we have in place, would not allow individuals to fall through the cracks. we would not pull the rug out from anybody. we would not have individuals lose coverage that they want for themselves and for their family.
2:02 am
we want to make certain that health care is available to all americans. >> let's get to white house correspondent athena jones for the latest. >> reporter: good morning. this could prove to be another monumental week in the republican effort to repeal and replace obamacare. with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell determined to hold a vote on the senate's version of the bill this week. the problem is that at least right now there are enough republican senators who have expressed opposition to the bill to effectively kill it. several other republican senators have also expressed concerns. conservatives are worried that it doesn't go far enough to undo obamacare. meanwhile, more moderate senators are worried that it may go too far. that it could leave the most needy and the most vulnerable behind, particularly because of the changes to medicaid. the cuts to the medicaid program that are included in this bill. now we could see the score from the nonpartisan congressional budget office as soon as today. that will let senators know the
2:03 am
impact of this bill. how much will it cost, how will it impact the deficit, how many people could lose coverage under the senate's proposal. those numbers are going to be very important for senators trying to make a decision about the bill. i should mention that president trump has been working the phones himself. he's spoken with senators ted cruz and rand paul to try to get them on board. so a lot to watch this week as they try to get this bill, this promise that republicans have been running on for the last seven years. they're going to try to get this bill across the finish line. we'll be watching closely to see what happens. >> thank you very much. the president confirmed sunday that, yes, he did call the house health care bill mean. >> mean, that was my term because i want to see -- i want to see -- and i speak from the heart, that's what i want to see. i want to see a bill with heart. >> however, some critics say the senate bill also lacks heart.
2:04 am
that's because it makes the deepest cuts to medicaid in 50 years. medicaid is the nation's biggest health insurer covering more than 70 million low-income americans. and the current proposal slashes funding by at least $800 billion over the next ten years. how does it do this? there are a few ways. you see them there. it ends the expansion program, reduces the growth rate of funding, and sends states a fixed amount of money instead of leaving it open-ended. each state's funding will be based on its historical funding for each group. that includes children. it includes disabled adults and the elderly. republican lawmakers, though, claim the current system encourages states to overspend on medicaid. however, most americans actually view the program quite favorably. president trump promises that no one with medicaid is going to lose coverage. however, the congressional budget office estimate of the house bill found 14 million americans will. so the question is, what will the senate version do. we'll find out when the cbo
2:05 am
releases that score this week, possibly as early as today. big day. to help break it down, zachary wolf, digital director for cnn politics with us live from washington. good morning, sir. >> good morning. >> good morning. a couple of claims we want to talk about, tom price, what he said combined with pennsylvania senator pat toomey regarding the senate plan. here's toomey on cbs sunday. >> i have to strongly disagree with the characterization that we're somehow ending the medicaid expansion. in fact, quite the contrary. the senate bill will codify and make permanent the expansion and will have the federal government pay the lion's share of the cost. remember, obamacare created a new category of eligibility. working age, able-bodied adults with no dependents for the first time became eligible for medicaid if their income is below 138% of the poverty level. we'll continue that eligibility. no one loses coverage. >> okay.
2:06 am
so there's toomey. and again, tom price, hhs secretary, said we would not have individuals lose coverage they want for themselves and their family. does this have echoes of you can keep your doctor, and can they back up those claims based on your read of the senate bill? >> yeah. like you -- it does have echoes of you can keep your doctor. i was also thinking it has echoes of republicans accusing democrats of cutting medicare back when they passed obamacare. you know, they were trying to carve out, to control the cost curve and make medicare cheaper going forward. now it's medicaid, and it's democrats accusing republicans. so the shoe's kind of on the other foot there. but it -- it's hard to figure out exactly how you ensure the same number of people, and get the same level of coverage if you're carving this much money out of the program. so it is, i think, a fundamental restructuring. that's what's interesting here. a fundamental restructuring of medicaid. it would change the way it
2:07 am
works. and that's really the bottom line. but you know, doing that is going to be very difficult. you saw pat toomey there. you know, opposition to this -- it will be interesting to see if democrats can galvanize around it and how the country reacts over this weeks week. >> with the release of the bill, i did light reading. here's the bill. a little poolside light reading. 142 pages of it. i want to know, when is a cut not a cut? this is really -- has been a big discussion since the paperwork actually came out. you've got "investors business daily" saying the cuts you're seeing aren't really a cut, at least not in the sense that most people think is a spending cut. that instead, you would see spending grow at a slightly slower rate. but in the end, isn't it true that what's going to winds up happening is coverage -- to wind up happening is that coverage is going to be less. we heard kellyanne conway go to the talk show circuit on sunday. listen to what she said.
2:08 am
>> these are not cuts to medicaid, george. this slows the rate for the future, and it allows governors more flexibility with medicaid dollars. they're closest to the people in need. if are you currently in medicaid, if you became a medicaid recipient through the obamacare expansion, you are grandfathered in. we're talking about in the future. >> okay. what is this bill saying? is it saying cuts are cuts like you and i would think? help us flesh this out. >> yeah. it's a good point. i mean, is a cut to future spending something that you don't have yet, is that really a cut, or is it -- you know, it's -- it's the rorschach test of the bill right now. do you feel like cutting future spending to medicaid is a cut, or do you feel like, you know, fundamentally restructuring it is -- is a good idea. that's what it's going to come down to, i think. >> of course mitch mcconnell is master of the senate rules and of wrangling the votes. right now, it is as "the daily news" says, a bit of a revolt. five are nos. you've got susan collins
2:09 am
concerned, lisa murkowski has concerns, even more. how concerned is the cbo in getting 50 plus mike pence? >> it's important, but you have to have people who said they don't support the bill change their mind based on a cbo score. i'm not sure that's going to happen. if you said this bill doesn't work for me, i'm not sure how a cbo score makes you change your mind, ultimately they're probably going to have to change this bill somehow to get some of those conservatives back on board. the math is very easy. they can afford to lose two senators, no democrats will support them, they can afford to lose two senators, and five said they won't support it. there it is. they need three more. >> quickly, i've got to ask, do you think mitch mcconnell will pull the bill because of an early indication of not enough support? >> you would think so, but they went ahead with the vote on the house side. so it's possible they could do
2:10 am
here, too. >> they want to do it by friday. zach wolf, we'll check back in 30 minutes. want to ask you about russian interference in the 2016 election which trump now for the first time appears to acknowledge on twitter. thank you, sir. >> okay. next, a crucial day for the supreme court. in just a few hours, we'll hear whether the court is taking up president trump's travel ban case. and whether justice anthony kennedy is retiring. and terrifying moments for 350 passengers on an international flight. shaking violently for nearly two hours. the cause still a mystery. we'll show you more of this video and how it ended next. the average family's new, but old, home: it stood up to 2 rookies, 3 terrible two's, and a one-coat wonder named "grams". it survived multiple personalities, 3 staycations, and 1 tiny announcement.

2:15 am
anthony kennedy retire? we have more. >> reporter: all eyes are on justice anthony kennedy. sources say he's seriously considering retirement, but flow one knows if it will come as early as this term. it would be a big change for the court and the country. he's played such a central role on the court. he's voted with liberals on abortion access, affirmative action. he's voted with conservatives on gay rights, campaign finance, bush v gore. if president trump gets this vacan vacancy, he would solidify the conservative majority for years to come. he would replace a centrist with a conservative. that would really change the court. today we could also hear about the travel ban. lower courts have blocked it. the administration is asking for two things -- allow it to go into effect immediately and hear arguments next term. we could hear about the issues as early as this morning. >> thank you. take a look at this
2:16 am
terrifying video. more than 350 passengers on this air asia x flight from perth, australia, to malaysia. enduring violent shaking for two hours. one passenger said there was a loud bang about an hour into the flight. the plane shuddered during the entire trip back to perth. he also said the pilot asked them to pray twice, and they were told to hold the "brace" position during landing. not clear what caused the issue with the jet's rolls royce engines. let's keep the theme of terrifying video. how about this -- a teenage girl making a frightening fall at a six flags amusement park in upstate new york. thankfully she's on the mend this morning. this cell phone footage showing the 14-year-old girl dropping from the ride on saturday night. lucky for her, everybody kind of gathered below. these good samaritans spotting her dangling. they sprung into action. they broke the girl's fall after she plunged 25 feet down. thankfully, the young lady not seriously injured.

jordan spieth joining tiger woods as the only two golfers to win before their 25th birthday. the way he did it now from andy scholes. >> i can't believe it. i've watched it 20 times. >> to make this shot on any hole would be -- would be amazing, right? to do it in the playoff hole to win a tournament, just incredible. and i'll tell you what, jordan spieth, he was in trouble. in the bunker on the first playoff hole with the annual burger at the championship. comes through with the shot of his career to this point. holding it out to win the tournament. he throws his clubs. his caddy threw the rake. they chest bump. the crowd going completely nuts. spieth said the whole moment, it was surreal. >> he was screaming, and it made me want to scream louder. and then he jumped and fortunately, we didn't like high five jump. we both went kind of for the -- for the little side bump. but it was cool.

2:30 am
senate republican leadership is pushing for a vote by friday. and as early as today, we could find out the true cause and effects of the senate health plan. president trump now acknowledging that russia meddled in the u.s. election and putting blame squarely on former president barack obama. welcome back to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> i'm alison kosik. 30 minutes past the hour. coming as soon as today, the congressional budget office assessment of the senate health care bill. that's the same cbo score or analysis that almost scuttled the house version of the obamacare repeal and replace. the senate's 52 republicans, they've got an even narrower path to victory than their house colleagues. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell can only lose two votes. at least five republicans have said they can't support the bill in its current form. that's before the cbo analysis even comes out. >> health and human services secretary tom price making sweeping promises to help get
2:31 am
this bill across the finish line. for example, he says the cuts to medicaid you've heard about, not really cuts. >> what i'm telling you is that the system, the plan that we have would put in place would not allow individuals to fall through the cracks. we would not pull president rug out from anybody. we would not have individuals lose coverage that they -- they want for themselves and for their family. we want to make certain that health care is available to all americans. >> for more let's turn to white house correspondent athena jones. >> reporter: good morning. this could prove to be another monumental week in the republican effort to repeal and replace obamacare with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell determined to hold a vote on the senate's version of the bill this week. the problem is that at least right now there are enough republican senators who have expressed opposition to the bill to effectively kill it. several other republican senators have also expressed concerns. conservatives are war made it
2:32 am
doesn't -- are worried it doesn't go far enough to undo obamacare. moderate senators are worried it could go too far, leaving the most needy and vulnerable behinds, particularly because of the changes to medicaid. the cuts to the medicaid program that are included in this bill. now, we could see the score from the nonpartisan congressional budget office as soon as today. that will let senators know the impact of this bill. how much will it cost, how will it impact the deficit, how many people could lose coverage under the senate's proposal. those numbers are going to be very important for senators trying to make a decision about the bill. i should mention that president trump has been working the phones himself. he's spoken with senators ted cruz and rand paul to try to get them on board. so a lot to watch this week as they try to get this bill, this promise that republicans have been running on for the last seven years. they're going to try to get this bill across the finish line.
2:33 am
we'll be watching closely to see what happens. >> okay. thank you very much. the president actually confirming sunday, yes, he did call the house health care bill "mean." listen. >> mean. that was my term. i want to see -- and i speak from the heart. that's what i want to see. iment to see a bill -- i want to see a bill with heart. >> however, some critics say the senate bill lacks heart. that's because it makes the deepest cuts to medicaid in 50 years. medicaid is the biggest health insurer. it covers more than 70 million low-income americans. and you look at the current proposal, it slashes funding by $800 billion over the next ten years. how does it do that? a few ways here. by ending the expansion program, it reduces the growth rate of funding, and sending states a fixed amount of money instead of leaving it open-ended. now each state's funding will be based on its historical spending for each group. that includes children, disabled adults, and the elderly.
2:34 am
republican lawmakers claim it encourages states to overspend on medicaid. however, most americans view the program favorably. and president trump promises that no one with medicaid will lose coverage. however, the congressional budget office estimate of the house bill found that happen 14 million americans will. we have to look at the senate version and see how that fares, and we may get a peek today when the cbo is expected to come out with its analysis, this week, as early as. >> that may be key to the future of health care. zachary wolf is digital director for cnn politics, live from washington. good to see you, sir. the president says there he wants this bill to have heart. here's what counselor to the president, kellyanne conway, told george stephanopoulos on saturday. >> these are not cuts to medicaid, george. this slows the rate for the future and allows governors more flexibility with medicaid dollars because they're people in need. if you are currently on
2:35 am
medicaid, if you became a recipient through the obamacare exception, are you grandfathered in. we're talking about in the future. >> tom price again, to reiterate, we would not have individuals lose coverage they want for themselves and their family. how central are the arguments that they are making to the few of the senate health care plan, zach? >> well, you know, look -- you talked earlier about the math. let's do the math. they can only lose two republicans in the senate. 1995 said they won't support -- five said they won't support the bill. the conversation is a little bit, you know, beside the point. they have to change this bill in some way to change minds. to get people who are on, you know, who have said that they will oppose it on board. without doing that, they won't pass it. that's one key issue to passing this bill, it's probably going to change in some way. the cbo score could help depending on what happens. if you had senators get so far out in front of the ball and say we're not supporting this thing, it's hard to find a way to fix
2:36 am
it. >> clearly one of the big focuses the senate bill is medicaid and the huge overhaul that senators are proposing here. i went through some of this 142-page health care bill poolside over the weekend. still going through it, as i'm sure a lot of folks on the hill are doing. trying to flesh out here why the white house says these are not spending cuts to medicaid. you have democrats saying they are actually spending cuts. >> susan collins called them cuts on abc. >> you look at future spending -- is it a cut if you project future spending and are saying you're going to fundamentally change the program and the future spending is going to get smaller? democrats did the same thing with medicare, by the way, and got hit for it big time during the obamacare passage some years ago. so this is just putting the shoe on the other foot. but you know, it's kind of
2:37 am
depends on whether you support the bill or not. i guess if you disagree with the way we administer medicaid now, they're not cuts. and if you do agree with it, they are. >> why the deadline of friday, zach? >> i think they want to get this done. you need a little pressure, otherwise they'll say, oh, let's change it a little bit. let's -- i'm still reading the bill. people on capitol hill much like your middle school or high schooler need a deadline. and you know, friday is it. he's been talking for a while, mitch mcconnell, about getting it done by the july 4th recess. there's a lot of other stuff they want to get to, and they could eat up the entire term talking about health care. so it's probably best for them strategically to put a deadline on it and try and make it happen. >> okay. russia still the talk of the town over the weekend. actually, the president acknowledging finally that russia meddled in the u.s. election, putting blame right on president barack obama, according to the "washington post." the president tweeting this, "since the obama administration
2:38 am
was told way before 2016 election that the russians were meddling, why no action? focus on them, not t." talk to me about what you think is going through the president's mind. why is he not getting in front of a podium and maybe taking a stand on this finally? >> i think it's probably easier and a little bit less embarrassing to tweet something than stand in front of a podium. we haven't seen him do too much of that recently. you know, these investigations are clearly progressing. they had the open of, you know, testimony last week from jeh johnson, former homeland security secretary. you see republicans talking about, well, why wasn't more done during the obama administration. then the blockbuster "washington post" report about how one obama administration person told the "post" that they choked essentially on russia. this is a line of inquiry we'll see more of from republicans. and president trump in particular is probably
2:39 am
interested in us pursuing it. >> right. he's called it a hoax. said it was china, a 400-pound guy on its ahead, it didn't happen -- guy on his bed, it didn't happen. now that you acknowledge it, what is the trump administration going to do about it? >> well, that's a great question. but on the other hand, sort of the election's over. the intelligence committee -- community has said that, you know, russia didn't affect the outcome of the election, as something else they talk about on the trump side. so you know, i think they probably want to put it behind us. but obviously russia continues to do this on a daily basis. you know, at the local level, at the state level, and at the national level. that's a great question. i don't think we've gotten an answer on that certainly from the administration. >> yeah. kellyanne conway talked about this voter integrity executive order. but to anyone's knowledge, that has nothing do with russian meddling in the election. perhaps they are pivoting on

2:46 am
>> reporter: all eyes are on justice anthony kennedy. sources say he's seriously considering retirement, but no one knows if it will come as early as this term. it would be a big change for the court and the country. he's played such a central role on the court. he's voted with liberals on abortion access, affirmative action, he's voted with conservatives on gay rights, campaign finance, bush v. gore. if put guts the vacancy, he would solidify the conservative majority for years to come. he would replace a centrist with a conservative. that could really change the court. today we could hear about the travel ban. lower courts have blocked it. the administration is asking for two things -- allow it to go into effect immediately, and hear arguments next term. we could hear about both these issues as early ads this morning. >> thank you very much. i want to show you terrifying video. more than 350 passengers on this

sa said, is it spinout of the white house or truth, returning medicaid to what it was and if it is what it was, finally, president trump acknowledging that russia meddled in the election, but with a twist. i'll give it back to you with this provocative question of the morning. the president is far more thoughtful about messaging than people give him credit for. did he say, yes, russia hacked in order to do this pivot back to the obama administration? and it's a legit question. if the democrats want to say it's so urgent, we need to do something, where was the urgency then? >> yes. he absolutely did. but now the attention is back on his plate, what are you going to do to prevent it from happening in the future? isn't it -- if you're in the white house press corps, that has to be your question. >> and it is a good question. however, it's not a bad answer in politics to say, boy, you sure are interested about what i'm doing now. you weren't so interested about what the obama administration

his own youtube channel. you can see him -- >> does he? >> yeah. playing guitar. he loves -- loves getting his face out there. he says he hates the media, but i don't think he's ever seen a camera he doesn't like. >> i think the feeling might be mutual. thanks for joining us. i'm allisison kosik. >> i'm dave briggs. "new day" starts right now. see you tomorrow. >> see you. health care's a very complicated subject. honestly, nobody can be totally happy. >> they've promised too much. there's no way the republican bill brings down premiums. >> the plan would not allow individuals to fall through the cracks. we would not pull the rug out from anybody. >> there's no way we should be voting on this next week. >> he had the information, why didn't he do something about it? >> for donald trump to criticize obama was like someone knowingly receiving stolen property, blaming the police for not stopping the theft. >> lots of crying. lots of people pulling out the life jackets. >> i thought the whole plane was

3:00 am
the 50 votes needed to pass their health care bill. >> health care is a very complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way, and this group doesn't like it. you move it a little bit over here, you have a very narrow path. honestly, nobody can be totally happy. >> with all democrats opposed to the legislation, republicans can only afford to lose two votes. but there are currently five gop senators who say they can't support the bill as drafted. >> there's no way the republican bill brings down premiums. i've been in medicine 20 years, i'm 54 years old, premiums are never gone down. they're not going to go down after the republican bill. >> the plan in its entirety will absolutely bring premiums down. >> reporter: kellyanne conway says the president is working the phones trying to drum up alisyn camerota pochlt although john cornyn said, we're trying to hold him become a little bit. complicating
