1:01 pm
he was pistol whipped by the gunman. this particular church member has a handgun carry permit. he went to his vehicle, got his gun, came back inside and, according to him, it was then that the gunman shot himself. eric: that unidentified gunman is in the hospital, we have a part of the police 911 call. here it is. eric: it's not yet confirmed that, indeed, was a clown mask or some type of mask. it is obviously a developing story. police not giving a motive or relationship between the suspect and the victims. that has not yet been established. the gunman not publicly identified. we, of course, will bring you
1:02 pm
the very latest as we get it here at fox news. ♪ ♪ arthel: meanwhile, the escalating war of words between president trump and the nfl. the president on twitter today calling for fans to boycott games unless the league cracks down on players who protest during the national anthem. but on game day for the country's most popular sport, some of the most-watched action is still taking place before kickoff with players continuing to take a knee as the star-spangled banner is played. hello, everyone, welcome to "america's news headquarters," i'm arthel neville. eric: i'm eric shawn. you know, this all started on friday night in alabama during a campaign rally for senate candidate luther strange when president trump urged the nfl owners to fire players who kneel during the national anthem. today the pittsburgh steelers' coach, mike tomlin, said his
1:03 pm
team would stay in the locker room as the anthem was played because he said, quote, we're not going to play politics. one player did, however, not stay in the locker room, he is a west point graduate, alejandroville move v.a., and he earned the bronze star for saving the lives of his buddies. he stood outside the tunnel proudly with his happened on his heart. we have team fox news coverage of all of this, marian rafferty live, but let's begin with kristin fisher in somerset, new jersey, near the president's golf club where he's been spending the weekend. hi, kristin. >> reporter: hey, eric. president trump has clearly been watching these protests taking place at nfl games across the country today. his response, quote: great solidarity for our national anthem and for our country, standing with locked arms is good. kneeling is not acceptable, bad ratings. so president trump clearly continuing to urge americans to
1:04 pm
boycott these nfl games if owners refuse to fire players for taking a knee during the national anthem. now, this issue has consumed the administration. today the treasury secretary was on another sunday show to talk about tax reform. the white house legislative director, mark short, was on, supposed to be talking about the latest effort to repeal and replace obamacare, and yet the very first thing that both administration officials were asked about was this controversy involving the nfl. mark short actually equated the controversy to high school coaches coming under fire for leading prayers for their players. listen. >> they're getting punished and disciplined for asking their players to pray, yet in the nfl players who take a knee over a flag that many of our generations preceding us have died to protect the freedoms there, they somehow get honored as martyrs by the media. the president is pointing out that shouldn't be accepted.
1:05 pm
they have a first amendment right to do that, but nfl owners also have a right to fire those players. >> reporter: this is all happening just one day after president trump rescinded his invitation for golden state warriors' guard steph curry to visit the white house. now the entire team isn't going, but the hockey team that just won the stanley cup, they're taking a different approach. i'm talking about the pittsburgh penguins, they put out a statement this morning that reads, quote: the pittsburgh penguins respect the institution of the office of the president and the longstanding tradition of championship teams visiting the white house. any agreement or disagreement with the president's politics, policies or agenda can be expressed in other ways. and, in fact, president trump tweeted about that very statement and praised the penguins for sticking by the tradition and coming to the white house regardless of where the players stand on politics. but, you know, all of this -- i hate to use the word distraction because, clearly, this means so much to so many people across
1:06 pm
the country, in pop culture, sports and politics, but it is a distraction from some of the more pressing issues of the day like north korea, like the republican effort to repeal and replace obamacare, like the administration's tax reform effort which is going to be front and center as we head into the week. and then, of course, you also have something else that we're watching for, president trump's travel ban is set to expire today, so the white house could be announcing new restrictions on that any minute now, eric. eric: kristin, a lot of issues to tackle in washington. and meanwhile, it's spreading. mlb, bruce maxwell who was born on an army base, he also knelt yesterday during his game. thank you. arthel? arthel: meanwhile, nfl players and coaches are divided over how to respond to president trump's comments about firing players who don't stand during the national anthem. dozens of jaguars and ravens' players took a knee during the star-spangled banner at the game
1:07 pm
in london today, others stood with their arms locked together. marianne rafferty is live at the stubhub center and have you talked to fan there is? what are they saying? >> reporter: actually, we did. we talked to fans who agreed and some who completely disagree and think it's unpatriotic, but they all pretty much said the same thing which was, you know, it's everyone's -- everyone has the right the protest if that's what they want to do, and it's not going to stop them from coming to any of the games or watching on tv. we have seen displays like this of solidarity from nfl players around the country. we're talking about 100 players who took a knee today in chicago, the steelers/bears game, nearly the entire team stayed in the locker room during the national anthem in order to avoid controversy except for one player, alejandro villanueva, a west point graduate and army ranger, who stood proudly outside a tunnel with his hand over his heart.
1:08 pm
this controversy all started on friday when president trump was at a political rally in alabama and suggested that players who protest by taking a knee should be fired. >> get that son of a [bleep] off the field right now. out, he's fired. [cheers and applause] >> reporter: -- from nfl league executives have been supportive of the players. houston texans' president writing: the comments made by the president were divisive and counterproductive to what our country needs right now. also houston player j.j. watt -- of course known for his effort during the hurricane harvey recovery, fans say that none of this is going to stop them from coming to the games. right now as we speak we've got fans filing in behind us. the chargers/chiefs game here in california set to begin in just about 30 minutes or so. arthel: thank you very much for that update from the west coast. eric: and from the controversy
1:09 pm
on the gridiron to the human crisis that some of our fellow citizens are facing, the terrible devastation in puerto rico from hurricane maria, officials keeping a close eye on that damaged dam in san juan. the dam threatening to collapse from all the flooding. thousands of people downstream have been orderedded to evacuate -- ordered to evacuate as the entire island still remains without power. garrett tenney is live in san juan, puerto rico, right now with more on this developing story. hi, garrett. >> reporter: yeah, eric. 8,000 people have now been evacuated downstream of the dam, and officials still say that it could collapse at any moment. but a positive sign though is that the water levels at the reservoir have begun to drop. and today some folks that live in that area began returning to their homes despite the risk that remain. the greatest needs across the island continue to be fuel, water, food and power. and there is now a steady flow of federal aid coming in to the
1:10 pm
island both by air and by sea. fema has already delivered 1.6 million gallons of water, 23,000 cots and dozens of generators and food, and more is on the way. more than anything though possibly is the need to connect with loved ones either to see how they are or to let them know that they're okay. with communications down across the island, that has been an incredibly heart-wrenching challenge both for folks on the island as well as back in the states who have family here. that's why so many people are now trying to make their way to puerto rico to be able to check on their loved ones. but with power out, air traffic control here at the airport is very limited in the number of flights that can come in, so folks are having a very difficult time getting to the island to check on their loved ones as well as reaching them by phone with the internet and mobile phones still down, it'll be days before some folks are able to touch base with their loved ones.
1:11 pm
people stopping anywhere they can along the highways here if they see a cell phone signal that they have it, they pull over just to call and say, i'm okay. eric? eric: that is just astounding. and it is so overwhelming. garrett, thank you. arthel? arthel: let's go to mexico now where rescue crews are searching through the rubble in search of any survivors after two massive earthquakes rocked the region this past week. thousands of people are now left homeless. jonathan hunt is in mexico city with the latest and, jonathan, i mean, how are those crews holding up, and are you seeing or have you spoken to any of the residents? >> reporter: it's a tough, tough job for these rescue workers, arthel. this in the heart of downtown mexico city is the last remaining official search and rescue operation underway. the collapsed office building behind me is the focus of an intense search. the media kept at some distance
1:12 pm
for obvious reasons, but earlier today we were able to get a little closer, and take a look at this video. you can see just what a painstaking operation it is. those highly skilled, very determined crews using basically just their hands to claw away layer after layer of rubble. they don't want to bring in heavy machinery, because that could disturb huge blocks of concrete and bring them crashing down on anybody who may, may still be surviving in there. it is a long shot but, obviously, they are not giving up yet. one of the crews that has been helping out in this effort is from the united states. the los angeles county fire department urban search and rescue team, i caught up with their team leader, chief dennis cross, and he told me there is still hope. listen here. >> the will of somebody to live outweighs anything else. a human being can survive for a number of days especially if they have a water source. if they're in an area that's a
1:13 pm
void space and they've got some source of water, bottled water, rain water as we saw in haiti, we pulled victims out of the rubble between 7-9 days that had a water source. we never give up because we know there are miracles. >> reporter: and this is a true international effort, arthel. obviously, the mexican authorities taking the lead here, and they have very, very highly skilled teams but as well as the u.s. teams, there are teams here from israel, from japan, from chile. so this is a real international effort, a coming together to try to help the mexican people as best they can. but, obviously, with every passing minute hopes fade of finding anybody else alive. arthel? arthel: still, heroes and angels hard at work. jonathan hunt, mexico city, thank you so much, jonathan. eric: republican leaders have hit some roadblocks in washington in their push to try and repeal and replace obamacare and now, well, the list of no votes is growing.
1:14 pm
coming up, we'll talk about the latest republican senators to say they may vote against the graham-cassidy bill. and the stunning war of words continues between president trump and kim jong un. this as the u.s. military takes to the skies in a show of military force. we'll dissect what could be next straight ahead. ♪ ♪ around here, i'm lucky to get through a shift without a disaster. heads up! you know what, don't worry about it. my bargain detergent couldn't keep up.

♪ ♪ eric: well, tensions continue to escalate with north korea with pretty tough talk from both sides and a show of force. the pentagon sending a squad of eight u.s. fighters and bombers to the farthest point north of the demilitarized zone by any aircraft, american aircraft this century. they flew over international waters to the east of north korea. this coming after north korea's foreign minister delivered a fiery speech at the united nations yesterday harshly slamming the president, call him, quote: mentally deranged. and saying mr. trump's tough talk on north korea is making a strike against us, he said, inevitable. president trump took to twitter basically warning that the north will cease to exist if it attacks the u.s. colorado republican senator corey gardner, a member of the foreign relations committee, also weighed in on this showdown. >> we have a long ways to go to
1:19 pm
continue to ratchet up the economic and diplomatic pressure on north korea and the enablers of north korea. our number one goal with north korea as it relates to north korea must and always will be peaceful duh nuclearization -- denuclearization of the regime. eric: is that even possible? gordon chang joins us from washington. first, gordon, what do you think is going on in kim jong un's head when he reads the president's tweets? >> well, he does feel diminished. but what really concerns me, you know, we've had these threats from north korea to incinerate american cities for years, and we even had those entertaining videos, but something is new. with the foreign minister's speech at the u.n. yesterday, he talked about attacking the entire u.s. mainland, but he didn't preface it with what north koreans have always said in the past. in the past they've said, look, if the u.s. strikes us, we will strike you. we didn't hear that yesterday from the foreign minister. and so that is a new development, and i think it
1:20 pm
indicates that there probably is a change in kim jong un's mind as he views all of these developments. eric: so your interpretation and analysis is they're thinking of a first strike? >> well, i -- [laughter] i don't think they're actually thinking of that, but they're talking about that though. and, you know, the north koreans parse those words very carefully. the foreign minister was supposed to speak before the u.n. on friday, he postponed. obviously, the north koreans wanted to think about what his speech would actually specifically say. so i think that you have to assume that they chose their words very carefully. now, to me, it's incomprehensible that they would think of doing that, but nonetheless, when you look at that speech, you look at the placement of the words, you've got to be very concerned. eric: he basically called the u.s. the enemy, said the korean war was continuing, you know, hasn't ended, and they fear an attack by the u.s., and they say their nuclear program is for defensive purposes. let's listen to a little bit more of what was said at the
1:21 pm
united nations. [speaking in native tongue] >> translator: what else could be a bigger threat than the violent remarks such as pouring fire and fury, total destruction coming from the top authority of the world's biggest nuclear power? the very reason the dprk has to possess nuclear weapons is because of the u.s., and it had to strengthen and develop its nuclear force up to the current level to cope with the u.s.. finish. eric: there he's saying it's, you know, our fault. >> yeah. the north koreans have always said that, you know? they've had a nuclear weapons program since at least 1965 when kim ill sung, the founder of the regime, asked for technology from the chinese. they probably even had a program before that. this has nothing to to do with president trump's words of fire and fury or the rest of it. and we've got to remember when president trump said he would totally destroy north korea, this was his tuesday u.n.
1:22 pm
speech, he preceded it by some very important words, and that was if the united states is forced to defend itself or its allies. so, you know, president trump has been careful even though he uses bombastic language, he couches it in self-defense. eric: and that is -- >> the north koreans aren't doing that. eric: that's always been the u.s. policy anyway, hasn't it been? >> it has been. and matter of matter of fact, ik at president trump's words, and fiery as they were, they really were just a restatement of u.s. deterrence policy which has always talked about massive retaliation if the united states is attacked. so in substance, they weren't anything new. now, of course, president trump has used language which is more bellicose, but when you look at the substance, really nothing has changed. eric: yeah, something else that i caught in the speech which i thought was really a nugget, he totally rejects security council resolutions, rejects the international law and the international legitimacy of the security council and the nine resolutions. let's listen to what the foreign
1:23 pm
minister said about that. [speaking in native tongue] >> translator: the democratic people's republic of korea is a responsible nuclear weapons state. we will take preventive measures by merciless preemptive action in case the u.s. and its vessel forces show any sign of conducting a kind of decapitating operation on our headquarters or military attack against our country. eric: finally he said merciless, preemptive action if there's any type of decapitation strike or attack. i mean, what exactly is he talking about? >> well, it's actually even worse than that, eric, because he talked about a preventative strike. you know, preemption is recognized that a country can preempt another country if an attack is imminent. he talk about preventative of which is not an attack because something is imminent, it's to prevent your opponent from getting a capability or from doing something. and so this is even more
1:24 pm
provocative than we first thought when we started to listen to his speech. eric: raising the stakes to a a level that we haven't ever pact chi seen -- practically seen, certainly not since the korean war back in the '50s, gordon chang, thank you for your analysis this afternoon. >> thanks, eric. arthel: as president trump is getting ready to board air force one in new jersey to head back to the white house, mr. trump is doubling downed today on his demand -- down today on his demand that nfl team other thans fire or suspend any players who kneel during the national anthem and calling on fan it is to boycott games -- fans to boycott games if they don't. how are fans reacting? we'll have that ahead. we'll have that ahead. ♪ ♪ my insurance company definitely doesn't have that... you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™ liberty mutual insurance. g new cars.

1:29 pm
washington after spending the weekend at his new jersey golf course. the president will go back to d.c. facing a full complement of issues that he'll need to tackle including the announcement of his new travel ban, the nfl twitter war of words between the president and the nfl players and coaches and owners and then another attempt at the repeal and replace of obamacare as well as the situation escalating between the tension there in north korea and, of course, you have the natural disasters in puerto rico and new mexico, mexico city there, we have reporters on the ground there. president trump is addressing the crowd, looks like he's talking to reporters. of course, we have a reporter there in that crowd, and when we get some sound from that conversation that's happening right now, we'll turn it around and play it for you. but again, the president is going back to, he'll be getting on air force one momentarily heading back to the white house where he's got a lot to tackle. we'll keep you posted on what's happening with the president. eric: obviously, he has a lot to
1:30 pm
say a because presidents usually don't stand by air force one at the airport and have an extended type of news conference or statement, but certainly it appears -- and you can see how he's gesticulating -- he's obviously, i would think, discussing the issue and the controversy as well as probably some other crises and being asked about it by the white house traveling press corps. as we said, we will bring his comments as soon as we can get that tape from the camera or however we can do that, play the video for you when it's played back for us. well, you know, the president's condemnation of nfl players who kneel during the national anthem is dividing some of the fans on the issue. some players took a knee before a game, you're looking at the one in london. this was the jaguars versus the raichs. -- ravenings. all members of the new york jets stood proud, linking arms in some cases. it's been a mix throughout the league today.
1:31 pm
bryan llenas is in east rutherford, new jersey, to talk with folks at a sports bar where the fans are. hey, bryan. >> reporter: that's right, i'm at the reds restaurant and bar just outside of metlife stadium. i spoke to about two dozen folks here all obviously sports fans. they were, yeah, most of them upset by the manner which players are protesting. but when it comes to whether or not they're going to boycott the nfl, not so much. take a listen. >> no, i'm not going to boycott the nfl at all. >> reporter: what are your thoughts? why, actually? >> why, because i understand people have the right to protest, right? but you protest against a specific action. if you are going to protest for black lives matters, right, march in a black lives matter, right? if you're going to protest specifically, but don't do it at a sporting event. i just think it's the wrong venue. >> i would never boycott the nfl because i love football.
1:32 pm
but i think the president should have interjected in it, he should have said something. he's the president. do i agree with everything that he says? no, i don't agree with everything that he says, but at least he shows that he's paying attention. >> i think it actually makes me want to go more just to show support for our players and try to keep the two issues separate. and once again, there's a lot on the president's plate right now and what's going on in the nfl should be, like, on the bottom of his list or not on his list at all. >> 100%. i mean, listen, i'm a veteran, man. those guys are getting paid millions of dollars, and i used to get clash 750 -- $750 twice a month, and if you can't stand for the national anthem, get the hell off the field. >> this wasn't about trump, this was about the cause. now it turned from the cause to everybody uniting for the injustice or against the president. >> reporter: obviously no
1:33 pm
doubt the talk of nfl sunday today, but ultimately they say the biggest thing that bothers most folks is they just don't want to talk about politics, religion, any of that, especially on a day where they just want to concentrate on football. eric? eric: i guess the jets won today too, so for jets fans -- >> unfortunately. i'm a dolphin fan, but, yeah. [laughter] eric: sorry. next time maybe. >> reporter: take care. arthel: and the saints won too. anyway, moving on. for more now we're going to bring in judy miller, adjunct fellow, pulitzer prize-winning reporter and fox news contributor. judy, hello. we have lots to talk about, and we start here. do you think it's time to take this offline and off of twitter, you know, take it to the oval office for a discussion about what started this, which is, you know, which is what the players see as social injustice? >> look, i think that's a subject, arthel, that clearly is on the minds of those players.
1:34 pm
that's what led to this protest, the taking of the knee, that's what prompted donald trump to lash out. it's just very unfortunate, i think, that that -- his response to that protest has divided the nation yet again. three-quarters of the nfl players are black, and three-quarters of the audiences are white. i understand the way many people feel about this issue because it is disrespectful to the flag to kneel, not to stand during the national anthem. but let's remember this is not about the flag, this is about what the flag stands for, and free speech and the right of free expression is one of the most important values that that flag stands for. and i'm just very sorry that donald trump had to keep the spotlight on him. i think in part to distract americans from his foreign policy and domestic policy
1:35 pm
failures whether it's the impending failure to pass the repeal of obamacare or his embarrassing war of words with the north korean dictator which is also dangerous. this thing has gotten way out of hand so, yes, we need everybody to calm down, but we need to stand up for the right of free speech which is what most of the players and their coaches and even owners who supported donald trump have done now. arthel: well, you're right, the president is very smart when it comes to driving the news media coverage and taking it to where he wants it to go. meanwhile, i want to ask you how do you think white house chief of staff general kelly will discuss this war of words between the president and the players happening, you know, so publicly? >> look, i think that john kelly, general kelly is responsible for bringing order out of the chaos that was the
1:36 pm
white house and the policy agenda, but he cannot control donald trump, and he's not going to stop him from tweeting and dividing the nation through his tweets. let's just remember this: lebron james, maybe the most popular and talented athlete in the country, supported the players, not donald trump, and he has twice the number of twitter followers as donald trump. so in a popularity contest, i'm not even sure donald trump would win this one. arthel: well, when you talk about -- pop a lairty is one thing, but when you talk about presidential history, how will it treat president trump on this development? >> oh, i don't think we can possibly say yet. we are just at the beginning of this administration. even, arthel, i think we all have to say it feels as if he's been president for a long -- arthel: you know, i'm sorry, judy, i meant just on this particular issue when we look back on on this, how do you think the president will be
1:37 pm
presented? >> well, i think it depends on what happens. i mean, if people start boycotting the nfl and football, maybe the president will be able to take a victory lap, so to speak, using another sports metaphor. but if he doesn't and if fans just say we want to go watch the game and we don't want to hear about politics, then he will have miscalculated, and he will have misjudged where the american people are on an issue like this. a. arthel: so, i mean, this is quite -- i think it's safe to say it's quite shocking to many people watching this, just the whole engagement and how it's happening and how it's gotten to, again, pardon the pun, to kind of a locker room level. >> right. right. it's really disturbing. and i think that, you know, one thing i'm reminded of is the owner of the new england patriots, robert kraft, who
1:38 pm
supported president trump -- arthel: absolutely. >> -- and thanked him for being there when his wife died. he said donald trump called him every single week to find out what he was doing at what he called the lowest point in his life. where is that man? where is that donald trump who was able to reach out and be empathetic and bring people together? because since he's become president, he's just been dividing us. arthel: well, you know, judy, lots to talk about. we're short on time here but, of course, the flag and honoring the flag is very important. social injustice is very important, so we have a lot of -- >> absolutely. arthel: -- really crucial issues that need to be discussed and, you know, acknowledged. and hopefully, begin to find some resolution. judy miller, we have to leave it there and thank you for your analysis. we'll talk to you again soon. >> thank you very much, arthel. arthel: thank, judy. eric: a few moments ago we saw the president talking to the media. we don't have the tape yet, but we do have some of the comments.
1:39 pm
the president said that this, his call for the football players to be fired, in his words, quote: had nothing to do with race, but instead respect for the flag and for the country. and as for his friend bob kraft who has been at the white house with him celebrating the patriots' super bowl win and who has been a big donor to president trump, he said he likes bob very much, does like him, but that he had to go where he had to go in this controversy. so the president having some comments on the football controversy. we'll bring you the video as soon as we get it. he also talked about tax reform, very optimistic about that as the president heads back to washington. we continue with this controversy and with all the rest of the news, it is a busy weekend as fox news on this weekend continues in just a second. don't go away. in the navy. i do outrank my husband, not just being in the military, but at home. she thinks she's the boss. she only had me by one grade. we bought our first home together in 2010. his family had used another insurance product

sampson. and what we know so far is that one person, at least one person is dead, several others have been wounded. officers say the gunman first opened fire in the parking lot on a woman who was walking out of the church service. in fact, you can see his suv in the video there. it's the dark blue one with the doors open. again, emanuel sampson then entered the church and fired off several rounds, wounding six people and pistol whipping another person. and he reportedly shot himself after being confronted by a church member. now, we have a part of the 911 police radio audio from around 11:30, 11:25 central time this morning. let's take a listen. >> active situation, i was going to roll to that, but sounds like they've got the guy at gunpoint on the ground. arthel: so emanuel sampson, 25 years old. he's in the hospital and, of course, this is a quickly developing story, and we're going to bring you the very latest as we get it.

eric: and now to the health care bill, graham-cassidy. well, it needs some serious help or or revision if it is going to pass the senate. the deadline for that simple majority vote is september 30th, and that's less than one week away, and gop leaders had planned to vote this week, but several republicans are now putting that in doubt. as you know, senator john mccain has come out saying he will not vote for the bill. senators rand paul and lisa murkowski are leaning against it, and just this morning senators susan collins and ted cruz said they likely will not vote for the bill either. >> i'm concerned about the impact on the medicaid program. i'm concerned about the impact on cuts and coverage. we already have a problem under the affordable care act with the cost of premiums and deductibles. and finally, i'm very concerned about the erosion of protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
1:46 pm
eric: senior executive vice president and chief operating officer of america's health insurance plans matt isles joins us. what's your view as it stands now? >> sure. thanks for having me, eric. we have some serious concerns about the current state of the legislation. we're very concerned about eroding protections for pre-existing conditions, the impact it would have on coverage and the potential for millions of people to lose coverage, the impact on states and medicaid and really the ability to implement this program in the timeline that's envisioned under the legislation. it would create chaos. eric: but the gop sponsors say it's a great improvement over obamacare, that it'll stop the premiums from going up, and it's needed to try and protect most americans. >> we actually have a different set of fixes that we think are important to address obamacare. we think it'll be important to fund the so-called cost-sharing reduction payments that allow low income individuals to afford their care.
1:47 pm
we think there could be some more state flexibility with guardrails in place to allow skates to get waivers in place place -- states to get waivers in place more quickly. we also think you could push down premiums by, say, 15 or 20% if you put in place a so-called reinsurance program, and that would a make the market more stable and bring plans back to the market which would help choice and competition for consumers. eric: what's that, when you talk about a reinsurance program? what do you mean? >> sure. if there was additional funding to take off the pressure from individuals with very high health care expenses, what we've seen in the market thus far is that, unfortunately, we haven't gotten the young and healthier people to enroll, but if we were able to push down premiums, we could take that pressure off and maybe find a way to attract a younger, healthier mix into the marketing in addition to providing pre-existing condition protections and keeping those in place. eric: you represent 1,300 insurance companies that sell insurance to us so, you know,
1:48 pm
what are you hearing on the ground? what are the folks telling you? because we see it in our insurance premiums. >> sure. there's a lot of concern particularly in the individual market. and we have to remember that that's a relatively small portion of the market, only about 6%, but it's getting almost 100% of the attention because of the challenges that we've seen there. but there's a concern about really certainty in the marketplace. it's not clear about the cost-sharing reduction payments that i'm mentioning. they've been month to month. getting some certainty in place and thinking about a bipartisan fix, for example, some of the ideas that senators alexander and murray have put in place would probably be a better start in the short term. eric: what do you like about that plan? >> sure. it would provide some certainty by, again, funding payments and giving states a little bit more flexibility. it would be a good first step. there are other ideas that we think could be put in place to make the market more attractive for younger individuals to come, but we need to start and get that stability now. eric: do you think that, you
1:49 pm
know, lamar alexander, republican of tennessee, and patty murray, democrat of washington state, i mean, that is being touted as the bipartisan fix. they pulled it for graham-cassidy, but that may be back on the table certainly after next week, especially if graham-cassidy goes down the tubes. do you think some republicans could join, more republicans could join alexander and murray, and that's exactly what we may see in the coming weeks? >> it's hard to know how the politics of the situation plays out. what we've really focused on is getting a policy solution and bringing a fix so that the american people who rely on coverage without the help of an employer through the exchanges really have more choices, there's more competition in the market and we can make a good first step towards getting stability over the long term for this group. eric: that's certainly what all americans need, try to get a fix on this. matt eyles, thank you so much. >> thank you. arthel: roll tide, a republican battle playing out in alabama
