call or visit us online today . hello, it's 5:00 in new york city and this is the fief. a new study shows an alarming trend of life expectancy falling among white americans. the reasons point to drug use and addiction as a major factor in the downturn. dana and i have wondered for months about why drugs haven't become a more prominent campaign topic. here's a video of chris christie talking about his friend from law school that's gone viral. >> a year and a half ago on a snd morning mary pat and i got the call we had been dreading
forever. they found him dead in a hotel room with an empty bottle of percocet and an empty quart bottle of vodka. 52 years old. by every measure that we define success in this country, this guy had it. great-looking guy. well educated. great career, plenty of money, beautiful, loving wife, beautiful children, great house. he had everything. he's a drug addict. and he couldn't get help and he's dead. >> notice the video is taken from a christie speech delivered to the very important new hampshire audience and jeb has made his daughter's drug addiction a campaign topic. >> i have some personal experience in this just as a dad and it is the most heartbreaking thing in the world to have to go through. we over-medicate in this country, the gateway drug isn't marijuana any more for henderson and cocaine or crack cocaine. i mean there still is that gate,
i guess. but prescription drugs now, we're way over-prescribing as a nation. >> who can forget carly fiorina's emotional debate comments about addiction. >> i very much hope that i am the only person on this stage who can say this -- but i know there are millions of americans out there who will say the same thing. my husband, frank and i buried a child to drug addiction. so we must invest more in the treatment of drugs. >> now dana, i pointed out that you and i have been talking about this. why isn't the drug addiction debate been a bigger topic in 2016. >> about six weeks ago i had a chance to be on o'reilly, i was asked what is one of the top stories of the week i said what people are missing in new hampshire, nationwide this story has not been big, but in new hampshire, the first question the candidates were reporting they were getting is what can you do to help us with our drug
addiction problem. in manchester new hampshire, a town of 110,000 people. by august of the year, they had had 350 overdoses already by that month. could you wake up in the morning and find out, what happened to the prom queen? she is an addict and she died. the topic has gotten the attention of a couple of people in particular hillary clinton, she recognized that it was happening in new hampshire and a couple of weeks ago she came up with a proposal called ten years, $10 million. not enough, not getting to the root cause, but it helps her in new hampshire to say, i have a solution. you had three candidates there, all with very personal stories that i don't think we can say that they're using those stories to get ahead. but they're talking about them, because, say you're asked about it, vermont or massachusetts, it's a problem that's growing across the country, one of the most important questions in a presidential election is does the candidate care about people like me? do they understand the problems of people like me?
problems that i'm dealing with? and if you have a personal story that you can bring to it, it's not easy to talk about someone that you lost, a loved one, but if you talk about it meaningfully, you can start to get to something. this issue -- while it might seem small like ten years, $10 billion, it's actually on the minds of so many people, it's the first question they're asking. think that's why it makes sense to be a national topic. >> kg, chris christie comes from a state, new jersey, that also has a massive drug problem. heroin takes i think on average, besides new hampshire, takes more people from drug overuse or overdosing on heroin. that's probably why he was doing it. did just so happens to be a primary state as well. >> it's really unbelievable. it's really become like a plague on our society. in this country, the devastating number of heroin-related deaths, people addicted to it. it's become cheaper, more affordable even than co-indication. and so this is a big problem, so heroin-related deaths jumped 39%
from 2012 to 2013. we see that number continuing to escalate. and some of the recent health studies that you've brought up, dana, about people overdosing and dieing from this kind of drug addiction. obviously it's a very important issue. it should get the attention and i believe that it will. i think right now, though, the economy and some of the other issues, are very prevalent in getting a lot of the attention. because traditionally they do. there's a lot of things wrong, eric, so they need to be tended to. >> kirsten, in again, let's talk about in context of what dana said, three of the gop candidates have something very personal stories. is this a good time, is this a good issue to be bringing up now? timing and to be bringing up on the campaign trail? >> i think it's a huge issue, i'm amazed at how many people i personally know, frankly, who in particular with their children, and that's what's amazing that you have suburban children who are addicted to meth. you know, who you're thinking what? this is not what, when i was growing up, i didn't know a
single person who was addicted to drugs. i think it's something that is really a huge problem. there's one thing that comes to mind, is why? why is this happening? i think that's the big question. because if you want to solve the problem, you got to figure out why it's happening. >> what they say, tom, for the first time, life expectancies are dropping in the developed country. it's almost unheard of, drugs, alcohol and suicide. and they're pointing the drug at prescription drug. >> as jeb said, we're overprescribing. drugs help a lot of people. a lot of people are on a lot of drugs, we all know old people who are on drugs that weren't even invented when we were younger. so there's, there's a lot of good news in the medical world. like dana, i know you love good news. but the death rates across the board are way down from 1969 to 200 tw
200, 2013, 43%, the death rate has improved 43%, so there's a lost good news. >> but what eric is saying, this is unprecedented, in a developing country, a developed country you actually have this back-sliding for what has been a pretty healthy group with a lot of money to be able to take care of their health. >> white males, 45-54. pointing towards a prescription drug -- >> can i mention something else about that? >> sure. >> so if you have a chance, i know it's another reading assignment, but bear with me, ben dominige at the federalist wrote a piece that's really good. and it gets to something we talked about in the past. charles murray wrote a book a few years ago called "coming apart." if you look about the numbers you're talking about, mortality rate, age group, and towns around america that have lost jobs and you have disability insurance claims. doctors want to help people.
they go to school and their calling is to help people. when someone says to them, i'm in pain, they want to help them. i don't know what the problem is on the drug addiction side of things. thankfully i don't have that problem. so i know that i could. there's legislation in front of congress that says can we get doctors to be able to prescribe more of a different type of medicine that will help people get off the heroin? you do have an additional problem that this problem, eric, is not just a new hampshire problem. it comes to vermont, new hampshire, now upstate new york, massachusetts, rural kentucky. other places like that, it spreads almost like a virus, the last thing i would say is a lot of people who end up with addiction, especially suburban parents, who then end up with a child they have to deal with, they get stigmatized, because you think well, as if a drug addiction is your fault there foreyou don't get the help that you need. it's a big issue, it will be a big one in new hampshire and probably across the country. >> i want to focus on one more thing, kg. what ends up happening is disability insurance.
people are losing their unemployment insurance and they're going on disability. and the study literally points to the fact that people are staying on disability and they can't afford other things, they go to the hard drugs, they go to the cheap. heroin is cheap. hits of heroin now are $4 a hit. >> it's becoming affordable. >> that's what people who are impoverished, they're going to turn to a drug like that and unfortunately they're moving in such a dangerous direction, it's very readily available and it's cost-effective for somebody who has a drug addiction or pain problems. it's really problematic. so people turning to that instead of prescription drugs that they can't get. >> the other thing that happens is you shap shop for prescripti drugs, the laws finally catch up with you. you're cut off and then you turn to heroin because it's easier to get. >> to what extent should the government be involved in policing this. >> the government should try to figure out what's going on first and foremost.
the people who did the study said they didn't know what was causing it. but did say that clearly there's a high level of both physical and psychic pain. that's being medicated. and so we have to try to understand why are people in so much more pain than they were in the past. and i think that we could probably figure it out. i think we could probably come up with some ideas pretty quickly. >> 90% of all people who tried heroin for the first time over the last ten years -- were white. surprising? >> no, i don't think it's surprising. but i think i'm suspicious of federal solutions to this. a lot of these things are localized. you have certain drugs in certain areas of the country. so i think, i would not be, you know, any of us trust the federal government to come up with a solution for america's drug problem? i feel like this is a local issue. treatment is going to be very big. people believe more in treatment than enforcement. >> i don't think they necessarily want the government to get involved in on a
day-to-day basis, but they want federal money because they are overwhelmed and can't afford it at the state level. >> we have another topic we didn't get to. this is a really important debate to be had. it was important to see these candidates show a different side of themselves, i thought it was compelling to see chris christie, jeb bush and karlie fiorina with a real emotional issue. we'll tell but the big conservative issues from coast to coast from last night. to folks out there whose diabetic nerve pain...

and pretty soon, so did everyone's in the classroom. ok, veronica. amphibian excellent! internet essentials from comcast. helping to bridge the digital divide. disagreements run deep among democrats and republicans, voters on both sides are united in their dissatisfaction with washington and our political system. a new nbc/"wall street journal" poll says 69% of americans feel angry with a system they say only works for insiders. president obama is dismissing some of the frustration, while senator marco rubio says the president is in part to blame. >> political season is always a little bit of a silly season. what's different this time is that particularly in the republican party, you have i think the most disgruntled or
suspicious of washington portion of the electorate that is driving the process. >> there's a tremendous amount of frustration about the direction of our country. people are saying -- we got a mamg ort in the senate and nothing has changed. we're angry. that's being manifested in the polls. i've argued that one of the things we need from the next president is a sense of urgency of about some of the things we've faced. >> conservatives across the country scored major victories last night. one in kentucky where matt bevin became the second governor to be elected in four decades. and in ohio, voters overwhelmingly rejected a measure to legalize recreational and medical marijuana. i was watching on the twitters, all the results come in. very interesting in kentucky, pundits alike the the polls showed that matt bevin was never going to win and he trounced
them. >> he surprised a lot of people. he had a rough senate run, remember that. so his stock was down. >> but then he was supported by mcconnell in this race. >> he's also a tea party guy. >> initially, yes. >> so all the crosses that they're putting on the tea party burial, hold off for a little bit. can i talk about the san francisco sheriff? >> yes. >> i think he's only the second or third time that a sheriff has ever been, an incumbent sheriff has ever been unseated when he didn't want to be unseated. that's fantastic. if that's not a testament that everything that o'really is doing and everything we've been talking about, as far as sanctuary cities. san francisco, california you should get the message, enough of the sanctuary cities, or the rest of you will be voted out the way the sheriff was. >> i've known this guy forever, he's a complete little hack and a joke. he was never even a real sheriff for anything, he ran for office, probably got elected bay few people who are clueless, bye-bye
ross. yeah. >> all right. good. >> that's really the truth. and everybody in san francisco knows it. he got ousted by one of the members of the hennessy family who actually has law enforcement background. >> kirsten in talking to people in kentucky about what was stoking it, so the democrat was running on obamacare and said obamacare is great, everything is going well. matt bevin who won said obviously it's not going well and i will help you get out of it. they they in kentucky think obamacare was the big issue. >> i'm no genius, if i was running a campaign in kentucky, i don't think obamacare would be my focus point. right? separate from the national feeling about obamacare, that doesn't strike me as place where people are going to love president obama or obamacare. so i can't see how this would possibly help somebody get elected. >> how about in ohio where they tried to put together for legalization of marijuana. they did, medical marijuana and recreational marijuana together. they tried to do it with a monopoly system and the voters
in ohio overwhelmingly said no way. >> i think a lot of people, even people who want to move toward a decriminalization, they look at, they don't want to be on the forefront of it. they don't want to be like colorado, they see what's going on there and they don't like it. think that's what happened there, they don't want to jump in with both feet. but president obama, can i say something about that video? does anyone believe this above-the-fray attitude that he tries to hold all the time? it's silly season in washington. it's like -- >> he's so above it all. >> he, he still plays this -- i'm above it all. and but when you look at what he said, it's the same message of -- republicans are the ones you know driving this. they're the ones, i could get things done in washington, if it wasn't for these obstructionists and these republicans. but he is, it's, it's so passive-aggressive. he's the one fighting. you know? he plays above the fray. with there's no red states and blue states. he was never that way. >> right right right. >> another topic?
>> i was going to ask you a question about next year. >> the question is does the ohio vote come back up again? >> well that was the question i was going to ask you, but in a different way. i do think that it will probably come up again and i think that they will try in a different way. think they will try to strip out the monopoly idea. they're going to have to do some analysis to find out what happened in ohio. because the vote was so overwhelmingly against. >>ky suggest maybe something that might have happened. the monopoly idea. even if you believe that marijuana should be legalized or decriminalized whatever. when you say you're going to hand over billions of dollars to ten different individuals in the state and they're going to make all the money on -- basically all the profits, less the tax, think you're going to eliminate a lot of voters that would normally vote for the legalization of it. who said why, open it up, make it a free market. maybe it's a business i could get into. >> because i could be persuaded on the free market standpoint on
that. the last thing i want to ask, we can go around quickly. it was a great night for republicans, even though the left tries to say anything good is bad for republicans. but it was overall a good night. that doesn't necessarily mean in 2016 that republicans should rest and think everything is going to be fine. because democrats typically, kimberly, they treatment their presidential elections, as my friend donna brazil says, as the world cup and everybody attends and they paya a lot of attention to it. >> the gop has to get a soccer attitude. i don't think they're going to rest. i think they're energized by this. you see a lot of people that jumped into this presidential campaign to try to be the one, to be the nominee. they should be encouraged by results like this, but double their resolve. >> you know the other thing we didn't mention? that there was an attempt to try to get the state senate in democratic control in virginia. and that failed. and if i were hillary clinton, kind of like upset about that a little bit. she needs every advantage she
can get in virginia, if i'm right. >> i think that's right. i do also think that republicans shouldn't over-interpret this. i say that to democrats when they win the house and they think oh my gosh, we have mandate. it's not a mandate. republicans -- >> that little thing? >> whether it's republicans or democrats, well then two years later you know, everything flips back and forth. we see all of these -- >> we could have an additional conversation in days ahead about the polling. because the polling was all wrong and maybe all the polls are wrong. and then what are we going to do? what are we going to talk about? ahead, ted cruz thinks only conservatives should moderate republican debates what do we think?
has the conservative media revolution forced the liberal media to abandon any pretense of objectivity? that's what rush limbaugh declares. >> the single greatest consequence of the rise of conservative media has been the destruction of the left-wing media's monopoly. the dissolution of this monopoly is what's caused all the partisanship in this country. the media used to be able to hide their bias. they used to be able to hide the fact that they're just hacks for the democratic party. now they can't hide it. they have been exposed. >> the bias of the mainstream media went on full display at last week's gop debate on cnbc. to prevent another repeat, ted
cruz proposes future republican debates should only be moderated by republicans. >> why are republican primary debates moderated by liberal democrats? right now we have liberal democrats moderate the democrat debates and liberal democrats moderate the republican debates. that doesn't make sense. think we ought to have republican primary debates. we don't want softballs, we just want moderators, whose object isn't to bloody up every republican and cause hillary clinton to win. >> good idea, bad idea, bolling? >> ted, i think i said this a couple of weeks ago. didn't i say why are you doing this, why are you having nbc moderating a gop debate. you don't have to do it that way. you could say no to cnbc and no to nbc and say yes until it's a general election. i get that. and i said this, where's the dnc? where's the democrat debate at fox?
it's not going to happen. because the dnc not foolish. they're going to play in the home court, they want the home-field advantage. >> one other focus, do you realize that the mainstream media the broadcast network, not only the anchors, but the managers, the tv executives, they're all liberal, you cannot name one conservative who is on air for abc, nbc, cbs or running the show at any one of those shops, you can't do it. i challenge you to do it. >> we have to get back to you on that. i'm not sure what the results of it will be. dana, what do you think of this idea? >> ted's idea or rush's idea? >> i like that. when rush limbaugh was talking about what has happened with the liberal media in terms of the mainstream media that was exposed. i mean we actually don't have to pretend any more, interesting to hear him say it that way. because having worked in it for so many years, you sort of factor it in and you get used to it i remember i think it was
bill cystrystal who said dana, you're going to have to get over it, because this is the way of the world. how could i continue to be a cheerful person and do my job if i didn't sort of accept it and still try to win. think that he's right. i remember when reporters started writing front-page analysis pieces in "the new york times" and the "washington post" and as a press secretary, i would say well wait, are you the reporter calling me today? or the analyst calling me today? and the truth is, there really was no difference. think that's been exposed and that's a good thing. when it comes to ted cruz's idea, think you have to practice like you play. i think republicans are better, you have to convince a lot more people and you can do it in a lot of different ways, you don't have to pick and choose. on the conservative side of things, with everything so fractured, who's going to qualify? who is will be acceptable to one republican, won't be acceptable to another republican. there's going to be more of a massive food fight about it. i don't think it's workable. >> do you like the idea for entertainment sports? >> i think cruz, it would play
to his strengths. the base loves cruz, so he would love a debate moderated by the base. rush limbaugh is so right. this article in the "national review" is fantastic. i think that you know it was always a myth. i think that's pretty much what you just said, right? it was always a myth of the objective journalists. all my liberal friends say i like the day when we would sit down to walter cronkite and have objective journalism. and i would say walter cronkite was always liberal. all of them were always liberal. now it's out of the closet, it's out in the open so they've been exposed. that's why you know they wear their politics more on their sleeve. good thing.it now. it was always a myth. >> well i think the reason that liberals think that they're not liberals because they think that what they believe is just reality. so when they turn on the tv and they hear reality being spoken, they're like, this is an objective person, right? you just think that this must be true. so what i found was interesting and what rush wrote, there was a couple of things in it that i
should have known, but didn't know. he talks but in 1993, while aboard air force base, president clinton called my st. louis affiliate to complain that i had three hours each day on the radio and there was no truth detector responding to me and and another point harry reid called clear channel and complained, wanted them to do things about what rush limbaugh was saying. this is an heavy-handed behavior by the government. i'm liberal and i can see that they're liberal. but that's not just the only problem. the problem is that they don't even want there to be one rush limbaugh. >> you now it's not enough that they're already in control of everything. it's like they literally can't tolerate this one person who is sitting out there. really? could you just -- turn the radio off? >> it's funny to watch president obama make fun of republicans complaining about this. because who has complained about fox news and conservative
media -- >> every chance they get. >> and it's not legitimate. >> and who never would come on fox. and comes on fox maybe four or five times in his whole presidency, in the whole time? >> and we should be grateful. >> bolling for a little bit more on rush, the man, not the band, i'm talking about the republican party, despite the defeats last night the liberals, republicans still willing to work with president. >> the republican party is still more inclined to work with barack obama and move his agenda forward. be it amnesty. be it the export/import bank. be it climate change, whatever it happens to be. despite this resounding defeat, for obama and the democrats and liberalism last night. >> what do you make of it? is he right? >> he's taking a shot obviously at some of the policy that the republican who is control the house and senate are letting get
through and hit the president's desk. and not get vetoed second time around. i see what he's doing. he's, rush limbaugh is staking out the conservative redmeat thread and he's doing a great job of it. >> dana? >> i think that there are going to be people that will say climate change, they look at the signs and think okay, look, we want a cleaner environment, too, so we should do things that are smart. we should not kill our coal industry over it today, and this goes to his point. you constantly find out other things, for example, china it turns out for last several years has been lying about its output of carbon emissions and they're actually way up over and above what they had reported. next week, president obama goes to paris to have this consultation about big climate change summit and it's based on lies. and that's what rush is saying, why do the republicans keep falling into this trap? >> the republicans are co-dependant. they become enablers and betray
their core conservative principles, selling out to the president. >> the other myth that the america voter wants people to reach across aisle. they want people to do what they want. >> kirsten, anything? >> i just don't, yeah i don't see the republican party quite the same way rush limbaugh does. >> more on that later. >> we're in kmern break. new developments on the crash of a russian plane in egypt. did a bomb bring do down that jet? catherine herridge joins us from washington coming up. how do robots work? it takes all kinds of jobs. and the best place to find the job that's right for you ♪ is on the world's number-one job site. indeed. how the world works.
from egypt's sinai peninsula. let's bring in chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge for more. hi, catherine. there's been a lot of developments this afternoon. can you bring us up to speed? >> sure thing. so i spoke to two separate sources this afternoon and they said based on the intelligence so far, it indicates an explosion on board that jet. the likely scenario is that a bomb was planted on the aircraft, and investigators are very focused on this isis affiliate in sinai, as well as isis sympathizers, within the last half hour, the "associated press" is reporting out of london and we're working to confirm it independently. that there are also intercepts, these are communication, picked up by the intelligence community. between known terrorist operatives, in this case isis and these intercepts further reinforce this idea that a bomb was planted on the aircraft and that's what brought it down. but i would also add tonight a note of caution. because what i heard consistently throughout the day. is that this is a highly fluid
situation and the black box has been damaged. and not fully analyzed. so no firm conclusions have been reached. >> isis has said they did this, but they're not going to say how they did it and it's up to other people to figure that out. is that typical response or does that raise suspicion that maybe they're making it up? >> the track record with isis thus far is very much like al qaeda post 9/11. in that they don't typically take credit for a successful terrorist attack that they were not responsible for. what's key about these isis messages is there have been two from what are called intelligence circles, leadership accounts. these are the kind of accounts that the intelligence community is familiar with. they often have very credible information. it's not just some isis guy saying we did this. this is considered a credible source and they have come back again today with the second claim and now we're anticipating as early as this evening, a statement from the leader of ice
ice, abu bakr al-baghdadi, though it's not clear whether it's in any way connected. >> i noticed earlier we had booked connor powell. our middle east correspondent. it switched over to you at some point. so i'm think this seems to be expanding. note this was a plane traveling to russia, russia has recently stated they're attacking isis, is that relevant? does that lend credibility to their claim that they took the plane down? >> i'm glad you raised. that one of the background pieces of information is that isis has indicated very publicly on social media that they're going to exact revenge on the russians for entering into this conflict in syria against the crusaders, which would be the united states so that's sort of an intelligence data point that cannot be ignored. again the claims coming from these two isis accounts, but i would also draw your attention to the obvious, based on my experience working in this area for 14 years, when you have the
british government come out in an on-the-record statement from downing street, that's their equivalent of the white house saying that based on the current evidence, and i have a new statement here right now, from that office. that based on the evidence, there's a significant possibility that an explosive device brought down that jet. and they're backing that up with further action, they are saying you should not go to the sinai unless it's essential travel. that tells you that there really is something here. eric? >> catherine, it's dana. a couple of questions because i wonder about russian domestic politics, a lot of people thought that when putin decided to go and fight in syria. he said he was going to go fight isis, but he didn't. now isis is being accused of attacking a russian plane when russia isn't even going after isis. how does putin deal with this with his domestic political
problems back home? >> i would argue that vladimir putin has real vested interest in the outcome. not only in his relationship with assad. but also that he sees the jihadist threat in that part of the world as an ex-is extension threat to his own government. because of the jihadist problem he has in the caucus region. i think the issue is to watch is how forthcoming they are so far they say they have not found explosive residue. which would be more consistent with an explosive device. if they do find that kind of evidence whether they take some kind of retaliatory action against isis if they were in fact behind a device on that airplane. but again investigators are focused on isis and they're also very focused on that airport and who had access to the aircraft in sharm el-sheikh. >> catherine, i was, i was researching this before we went to air and it seems like there was a lot of reports talking about conventional explosives.
and saying that it was probably something stored in the luggage or brought on board instead of a suicide bomb. is that where they're leaning? >> i'm glad you raised that. there are two m.o.s, one would be like an individual, mule carrying it on to the aircraft. i would say the easier more simplistic approach would be to place it in the luggage. the data is that the investigation are focused on the employees at the airport who had access to the plane, had access to the departure terminal. and we've got these intercepts, known isis operatives, communicating with each other in advance of that plane going down. and that is seen as further evidence to support this leading scenario now. that isis put a bomb on that plane and that's what downed the jet. >> catherine, some of the intelligence reports that are coming in that none of the passengers or crew on board were in any of the american terrorist databases. >> correct.
>> that also leads credence to the theory that perhaps it was something put on by the cleaning crew or someone who had access to the departure hall, versus someone being a mule going on to commit jihad and blow themselves up. >> i know you follow this closely, kimberly. you know in order to carry a device on to an aircraft, that's a much more sophisticated scenario. because you have to perfect the detonator and you have to conceal it in a way and the security in sharm el-sheikh is not insignificant. the easier scenario is to place a device with a timer either with a cell phone or a traditional timer and to put it in the luggage. i don't want to get too far over the tips of our skis, certainly that's what it would point to. >> thanks, catherine. >> you're welcome. up ahead, would kids do better in school if they had a money incentive to get their grades up?
