tv Anderson Cooper 360 CNN September 10, 2012 8:00pm-9:00pm EDT
china? there's some speculation he injured himself but gordon chang said those rumors seem improbable. it's another sign of instability of china. new troubles come on the heels of the spectacular fall from grace. he lost power after his wife was retained in the murder of a businessman. she's been convicted of that. the bottom line is, if china wants to be a superpower it needs to end the mystery. having the vice president of your country is more than strange. anderson cooper. good evening. on the receive of 9/11, the first responders will have health coverage for 58 different types of cancer. you're looking at a live shot of lower manhattan and the new lie
rising world trade center the twin beams of light a reminder of the missing you toers. tomorrow a moment of pause. the new one world trade center stands nearly 1400 feet high and each year the site moved a step closer repair and rebuilding but of course the pain never goes away. nearly 3,000 lives were lost on that morning. the unspeakable unfolding as millions watched. but the toll did not end there. the toxic pile of rubble smoldered for three months. first responders and others that worked there round the clock got sick and some have already died. today's decision to expand the law, has been fighting for where he worked on ground zero for months and developed health problems. he was diagnosed and treated for thyroid cancer. he joins me along with sanjay
cup gupta who has been reporting on the issue. >> i'm surprised it took this long. when you heard these cancers would be included. how did you feel? >> listen, anderson. myself i'm happy to be here. it took 11 years to get here at this point. it's much too long for the families left behind. i'm glad we're here. let's move forward. let's get studies going. those who need treatment treatment they desperately need and let not forget those who passed away and unfortunately what happened today comes much too late for them. >> sanjay, this news brings relief to a lot of workers suffering problems since 9/11. what prompted change in coverage? >> the best we could put it together. this issue was addressed by the organization that oversees this. at that time they said cancers would not be on the list.
>> this is new. what prompted it was a study that looked specifically at firefighters. this is important, anderson. you have very good health records for firefighters. they could determine what the health was before 9/11 and they could determine what it was like in the immediate aftermath and so forth. they looked at that data carefully in 2011, ten year later. they figured there was a increased likelihood of developing cancer. about 19% increased likelihood. and talk about all cancers even those brewing shortly after 9/11, you found the increase was 32%. i think it was that particular study more than anything else that created this change, anderson. >> sanjay, it is kind of remarkable, that given all of the money that was raised and donated and set aside by the government for this. that they would not include these first responders, who risked their lievs and a great
toll to themselves and were, early on, saying i'm pretty sure this has had an impact on my health. what do you think it took for them to make the decision to cover health care problems? >> and specifically, cancer. because that was the biggest sort of difficult thing and the source of a lot of controversy. obviously some of the other health conditions such as some respiratory conditions were easily covered. all they kenny said, it was difficult in all sorts of health conditions. with regard to cancer, specifically, it's hard to establish what scientists would love to have which is a cause and effect. you see all of that toxic dust. you see the conditions after 9/11 and you say, did that cause cancer? did that set up these cancers in people's bodies? and i think if you talk to some of the scientists, they'll still say look, it's hard to absolutely prove that, but they have enough data showing that in fact the numbers did go up. there was no precedent for this.
i think that's part of why it took so long. >> it also seemed so unfair. firefighters and police officers, and port authority officials department say, you know what, i'm not going to go down on the pile unless i get breathing apparatus. they went there. people responded right away and stayed there for months and months and months. >> you know what, anderson there was a job that needed to get done. >> i am sure i can speak for much if not all of the city fire department. it was an honor to be at the trade center. sanjay brings up a good point. >> i think the disappointment we had was going to the physicians and listening to what they just said. they had no baseline to fall back on. they wanted to compare us to coal fineminers, they said thera certain amount of time before a coal miner contracted some sort
of lung cancer. we needed physicians to expand the way they thought. they can't wait for any information in the past that there's their is nothing we had to fall back on. we had to move forward on this as a singular incident and start treating the peep. it became clear shortly after the world trade center and shortly around 2007 and 2008 that we had a big problem we were facing that we needed to face it as it was. a world trade center incident situation much not something from the '40s or '50s in a chemical plant or coal mine. that's why it took so long to get to this point. they wanted evidence that was presented to them in the past. there was nothing like this that ever happened before. >> sanjay, you were covering this topic for years now. i remember you studied the contents from the dust from 9/11. what did you find? >> how toxic was it? what was in it? >> it was something they've
never seen before. i don't say that lightly. obvious we have scientists studying this for ten year, but the combination of these various material, come bounded with gel fuel which raised the temperatures of these materials to different temperatures but clearly carcinogens. those dust particles contained those chemicals and acted as feeks, keeping them in the air and transporting them over significant distapses. it was pretty toxic stuff. >> kenny, you said it was an honor to serve there. at the time, could you tell you were breathing in this stuff? >> absolutely. >> you knew? >> i remember down in washington, d.c., about a year and a half ago. i had an opportunity to speak. i said you know what i remember about the world trade center? the smoke that was emanating from the site, there was a time, anderson it wasn't black or gray anymore, it was green. and really, as somebody that had been fighting fires, not
forever, i wasn't a firefighter for a long time before september 11th, only six year, regular burning of regular materials, the type of fires we were fighting in the city of new york, the smoke was black or the smoke was gray or the smoke was white. just from the color of the smoke emanating from the world trade center site. we could tell the work we were doing was leading to a problem down the line. we in an environment no one was familiar with. ment toxins they were turning, they were giving off a smell we weren't familiar with. the feel to the dust down there. the stuff sticking to our uniforms and equipment. really we needed more than the fire fighting gear we provided with. a lot of stuff our bodies took in was through our pores. this was a toxic incident that required hazardous material entry suits, situations like this, you don't walk into with
just regular fire fighting gear. our gear sucked it up, passed through our gear into our skin, into our pore, our nose, our mouth. this is why we have a lost gastro intestinal issue today. really, anderson, you could tell as a reasonable person at the world trade center, what we were dealing with was not a regular fire, therefore not regular smoke. >> yet you and your comrades continued on. kenny, i appreciate you, not only your service then, but your continued service to all of those still living and those who have passed. >> not me. let's remember tomorrow, let's remember the sacrifice of all of those who participated and again, it was my pleasure. thanks for having me. >> sanjay, thanks as well. >> thank you. >> just remember, tomorrow and every day. frankly. let us know what you think. on facebook or twitter. up next, the romney campaign said it's all about the economy. that's what they're running on so far. but what does the economy have
to do with keeping god on the u.s. currency or aborg? other issue the campaign is pushing these days. we're keeping them honest.

from dollars and cents and jobs, shifting towards more red meat hot button mode. the economy is first and center. if you've been watching mitt romney, you've been hearing about other issues as well. >> i will not take god out of the name of our platform. i will not take god off our coins and i will not take god out of my heart. >> that was mitt romney in virginia, on saturday. campaigning with pat robertson suggesting that president obama was somehow planning to take god off the currency. in fairness. mitt romney opened up with three sentences about the jobless numbers and then got on the talk about job. then talked about president
obama apolicy spends his time on a talking about the economy. when they asked what he was actually saying. the campaign manager certainly repeated the talking point. he said the subject has been the economy, is the economy and will be the economy. mitt romney doesn't want to change the subject. he wants to change the economy and that's what he's going to do as president. to be fair, fair enough. that's the message that they want us to get. but that's not all coming from the candidate on the campaign trail. here's governor romney today in ohio. >> when and if i become president of the united states. >> i will not take god out of my heart. i will not take god out of the public square and not out of the platform out of platform. /*. >> his campaign took the scener right through the pentagon and
bible belt and nascar country. after mitt romney made a pit stop at the international raceway. signing autographs. he also kicked often the weekend in iowa. endorsing steve king, outspoken and controversial conservative. you can agree or not with congressman king. and talk about their focus on abortion and same-sex marriage, you can believe the religion de serves a bigger role in the public or not. you can recognize the a good sergen doesn't get straight to the point. but either way the real message has been the economy. even before today a month and a day ago. to be precise, they were running this ad. when religious freedom is threatened, who do you want to stand with? >> i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> if the romney campaign has been zeroing in on conservatives lately.
recent polling could explain well. we mentioned there's these new cnn poll numbers out. last week, before the democratic convention it was tied. mr. romney got a one-point bounce and while some voters will feel a bit of a sugar high from the convention the basic structure of the race has not changed significant limit that's the question, hasn't changed. what his recent polling revealed about the romney campaign strategy. let's talk about it with john king and senior romney adviser babe buchanan. babe, the romney campaign is set from the start. this is all about the economy. in the last couple days we've seen mitt romney endorse steve king. talk about -- appear on a stage with pat robertson, talk about not taking "god we trust" off the currency, although no democrat has suggested taking god off the currency or coins.
is he all over the place now, or what is he doing here? >> no, i think it's clear the election comes down to the economy. the governor is strong on that issue. >> certainly far more knowledgeable how to turn the country around and the president is. however that doesn't mean that we don't talk about other issues. i think it's clear from our two conventions that the two parties really have a -- really are separate this year. >> they are moving in two different directions. it's important the voters understand what we represent as republicans and he as the leader of our party and what barack obama really represents. >> i think it's legitimate to make sure the voter understand that the democrats moved far, far left. >> bill is this a culture war? >> i agree with babe the conventions showed two divergent paths democrats and republicans want to take.
the problem for mitt romney is that on the economy, the issue he said he wanted to talk about this entire election. he's losing ground every single day. coming out of those two convention the american people said i like president obama's direction better. when you look at the cnn poll that you guys have out. look inside the numbers. when president obama is beating you by 20 points on who cares most about issues that affect the middle class, you can see why mid romney would love to talk about anything else be besides issue that's said he wants to be talking about right now. >> anderson, can i respond to the poll? that's as bogus of a poll i've ever seen, particularly from the two points here. mitt romney is winning 97% of republicans. that's not too surprising. and we're winning independents by 14 points. i don't know how you put those two factors together and come out that mitt romney is somehow losing this. because on election day, if we win independents by 14, and
clean sweep republicans, this will be an exciting day for republican, mitt romney. >> last week we heard about the language. hard work, welfare reform. values. seems the type of talk to resonate with voters. mitt romney is winning over those. but do we see them double down? >> yes, you'll see both double down on reaching the base. >> both view this mostly as a base election. find your voters, grab them by the ear and turn them out. you see them with pat robinson, christian conservatives very important. see them with steve king in iowa. cultural conservative that's important to governor romney. to babe's point about the poll, a lost people question every poll. but the reason those numbers exist in our poll, the president now plus six is that after his convention, democratic
intensity, enthusiasm is up and republican enthusiasm is down. yes, governor romney is winning among dependents but there's a temporary enthusiasm shift in favor of the democrats. one more point throughout the democratic convention, i was getting e-mails satisfyiying th democrats are overplaying their hand. look at these numbers, which candidate shares your values. the president has a seven-point advantage. 51% to 42% says the president has your values. two weeks ago it was esling a tie. >> at least at the moment, nationally, if the talk was supposed to hurt the president, if conservatives thought it t would it hasn't nationally. we picked president state by state and the people of north carolina sometimes differently
l. /*. >> was that bounce also a sugar high? >> it is. in this business as long as i've been and john will confirm it. you expect candidates to get a bounce from their convention. there's no surprise there. three who day, night, all kinds of attention. really showcasing your best leaders. of course you expect that. now the voters come back and start looking. key is the nine or ten swing states. >> where are people moving there. i see nothing but momentum for mitt romney and states, terrific momentum as he closed the last couple months. all kinds of different gaps, likability is up with presidents. likability comes down. these are important factors which play into the final number on election day. >> bill in those, republicans are getting ready to spend a huge amount of money in those states on as, aren't they ready to outspend you guys?
>> they are definitely able to outspend democrats. already going into the convention week, republicans were up 4, 3-1 in a lot of swing states. even so those numbers have not moved into the direction they suggest. the president has gotten a stronger position in all of these states from ohio to virginia to florida. that said, i do agree that the energy and enthusiasm coming out of conventions can be a very temporary thing. this will be close all of the way through. the debates will matter and whatever events that come up between here and election day that we can't predict really matters. right now the fundamentals set. where voters do believe the president is more on the side of the middle class and does have the kind of values that mirror the american people's values. >> if is t is a sugar high for the romney campaign or traditional bounds, is it insignificant? >> no, it's not. here's another one. bill talked about the middle class numbers. the president went way up.
i showed the president has a strong position. here's one, if this number holds, i don't think it will. we'll have a blowout on election day. among alikely voters men. look at that. governor romney up a dozen points. democrats win women. comes out of the democratic convention the president is in a statistical die among men. i'm not buying what the romney campaign says but everything in recent political history says that's been a sugar high. if that hold, wow. >> thank you, i appreciate it. we're focusing all week on the economy. >> we've been asking what keeps you up at night. next, housing. meltdown that triggered the recession, what each candidate says they'll do to fix it.
let's talk about what the romney campaign saying about the economy being the number one issue. the fact is it doesn't matter what they think, only what the voters think. two in three voters think economic conditions poor. that's not all they say. we asked what are their top five concerns about the economy. what keeps up at night. we'll showcase those things every night and try to get answers about their plans for addressing those concerns. tonight we look at the fifth issue, housing. according to cnn money, about 30% of home owners owe more on their mortgages than homes are worth. 30%. others have lost jobs. tonight a home owner in trouble and community activist. his group works to bring payments back into reach. >> what keeps me up at night are home owners losing their homes
and lives being devastated. i get calls from home owners every day. sometimes late at night because people have my personal phone number. they call and say i'm losing my home. imi' trying to work with the bank and they refuse to modify my mortgage. what do i do? we've helped over 200,000 families modify their mortgages and we're working with a lot more getting it done. because we have binding agreements with major lenders and investors to get it done. >> it's a modest home, but we like it. >> and it's ours. >> almost immediately after we bought the house, the value dropped. within months i threw my hans up and said you got to be kidding. we were making payments until the point she lost her job. once you fall behind it snowballs from there. with that interest rate and the
amount i was paying it proved to be difficult. >> we do what the banks should do. that's why the same day we're able to get people's mortgages modified. if you modify someone's home and they save over $600 a month in the mortgage payment that's the best economic stimulus you could possibly have. and that's what the banks and government have to do. because we're never going to get out of this mortgage crisis. it has to happen because the alternative is not acceptable when you have millions of home owners out there who are going to lose their home. and that is the biggest pull on the economy. >> back with john king and dan lothian traveling with the president and jim costa with the romney campaign. how does the housing issue impact both candidates? s awe said it will come down to a few king states. >> no question. there's been a national crisis. guess what, some of those happen to be in the key swing states.
this is foreclosures across the country. if you're seeing light there aren't a lot of foreclosures. let's look here. you see a lot in florida, in michigan, a lot in this part of ohio. a lot in the corners of nevada, northwest corner here. i want to do something. look at these. those are all swing states, florida, ohio, michigan. nevada. watch when we do this. take this off and turn this on. this is guy buy county, presidential four years ago by county. look where i circled. important to the president, important to the president up here and down here. you can make the case the problem is exacerbated. higher foreclosures in places around the country critical to the president. one more point i want to take if you take this out. look nationally at home prices down 166,000 whet president took office. 151,000 now. now down 30% in nevada. 20% in florida.
battleground state. 7% in ohio and 5% in virginia. in each of these states they started to come back up. if you're going through the obama presidency. housing is a problem in the battleground states. >> and some say president obama is to blame for the bleak economic picture. how has the president ston responded? >> certainly the economy and housing crisis is part of that. these problems were in the making long before the president took office. they got worse. but the president helped to stabilize the situation. they point the steps he's taken shortly after he took office. two programs rolled out to help home owners struggling. they were supposed to help 9 million but only a couple million were helped. there's something the president was doing, a $26 billion settlement with five big banks to help the home owners, a dozen other programs that the president rolled out as well. the short sean that they believe
the president has taken some steps, to essentially create a floor to keep the situation from falling further but there are a lot of people who believe the president could have acted more quickly and done more. >> how much do you hear from romney on the stump about housing? >> obviously he doesn't talk about the housing issue that. . one thing that came up lately is about mort cat reductions. he's been pressed to specific how he would limit the mortgage deduction for high income earners, that's something he said woe do in order to pay for tax cuts as part of the overall economic plan. he hasn't play out exact specifics. if you dig into the romney housing plan he talks about things like reforming fannie mae and freddie mac. but a lot is overshadowed by what he toll the las vegas review journal in late 2011 in all places was the foreclosure capital of nevada. here's what he had to say.
>> what do do to the housing industry specifically? are there things you can do to encourage housing. one don't stop the foreclosure process. let it run its course, hit the bottom. allow investors too buy homes, fix the homes up and let it turn around and come back up. >> the shorter romney response on this issue, i think is quite clearly what has president obama done to fix the housing problem in this country. >> and, john, you said the cost of housing, the biggest forces in the electorate, how so? >> ask people what is bugging them. it's national crisis housing. this vase settled in the goal states. you ask people about the economy. what are the two defining questions in the presidential election? is the country on the right track? a lot of people question the american dream. you bought your house, pass it 0-to-your children. >> talk about those issues, they are down about that. uncertain about that.
why? if you go back ten year and some people question the wisdom. the house is how you financed your life. it's how you refinanced and took vacation. the crisis is not just your house. you look down the neighborhood and see prices down. that contributes to the economic funk which you find when you visit many states. >> john king? >> appreciate it. thanks. following a number of important stories. we have more, from isha. >> maybe a blow to the al qaeda in the peninsula. arabian sources said they killed the second in command of that organization. the mayor of trenton new jersey was arrested accused of accepting bribes. federal prosecutors said tony mack took cash payments from a developer who wanted to build on city property. and the owner of a florida pizza shop was so excited about meeting president obama yesterday. that he gave him a bear hug and
picked him up off the floor. could someone actually do that to the commander in chief? he stopped by the "situation room" and explained to wolf blitzer. >> he opened up the door and said where is scott at? as soon as i saw him. he came at me and shook my hand. i was just so excited, i gave him a big hug and picked him up. it was crazy. >> just kind of what i want to do when i see you most times. >> yeah. i actually talked to him on the daytime talk show. we're flying him up. he's going be on the daytime talk show. he's threatening to give me a bear hug. >> just let him do it. >> nice to have you back, isha. do you not love us anymore? >> you were at the convention. i saw you in charlotte. you were too busy to talk to little old me. good to be back.

and has claimed the lives of 43 children. the prospects of a long strike leaving 350,000 kids out of school, threatened to make an unthinkably bad and dangerous situation even worse. that's the biggest concern at sweet holy spirit church, one of several places open for kids during the strike. >> we got killings going on like crazy. so the parents hope is killed by the strike. the children are left hopeless, saying does anybody care about the strike? and they have to have places to go. >> reporter: in the middle of the battle between the teachers union and the school district is chicago mayor rahm emanuel, we asked him how concerned he is about children's safety during the strike. >> the safest place for children is in the chose room. that's what i want. as i said this is the strike of choice and wrong choice for our children. >> reporter: teachers say they'd rather be teaching than pickets
but will keep going as long as they have to for a fair contract. >> i understand where they're coming from but i don't think the kids should have to stay home from school. i feel there should still be teachers there to teach the children and then, you know, the other ones try to get everything together. >> shots fired -- >> reporter: meanwhile extra police officers have been assigned to keep an eye on kids on the streets that have already proven to be far too deadly. >> ted, i understand they're still negotiating, any attempt to keep the strike from going another day? >> that is possible. we can tell you this, the board president has left the table for the evening. the board, however, assures us that they're still negotiating and a deal could be reached. of course if there is a deal we'll break into programming and report on it. >> paul ryan weighed in in support of the mayor.
>> yeah, very odd this afternoon. he came out and said it's not very often. but in this case, i am right behind mayor rahm emanuel in chicago and also asked the president to weigh in. we're hearing the same plea from teachers in chicago asking the president to weigh in on their side. pressure is going to start building at the white house up until now. president obama has not weighed in on this but as the days go on, if this strike continue, the pressure at the white house will start to build. >> ted, appreciate it. thanks, the dramatic video of a sikh temple. what police officer were dealing with when they arrived at the sce scene. why should saturday night have all the fun? get two times the points on dining in restaurants, with chase sapphire preferred. ♪ i can do anything
