7:17 am
me a few weeks ago march madness would be on cbsand cspan as well. i would have said you were crazy . but the fact of the matter is, it is true in two hours and 45 minutes, the rules committee is going to be convening and put in the place for the debate. one of the things that the american people learned in the past couple of weeks. process is substance and the idea of avoiding accountability on this important vote is something they don't want to see happen. we are determined to hold people accountable. when we look at the issue. a friend of mine in california has a radio program. the bigger government the smaller the individual comes. the notion of the government expanding like it is with a program is something that the americans are strongly against. we have focused our attention on killing the bill and that is critically important it is
7:18 am
important to note five simple things monday morning once we kill the bill to insure every american has better access to affordable health insurance and allow purchase across state lines and small businesses to come together to get lower rates and pooling to deal with preexisting condition and real meaning lawsuit abuse. we as republicans want to work in a bipartisan way to make it happen. >> democrats came in on the wind of saying transparency . we want that and trying to pass this using slaughter or demon pass and cram it through without a vote, is this go against the pledge of openness and transparency? >> it is interesting. when nancy pelosi was given the gavele she said we will have the most open and transparent congress in the history of america. but if you look in fact at the
7:19 am
numbers it is the most closed congress. the use of slaughter system and hiding the health care issue. the signature issue that we spent a year talking about. they want to hide the vote on that? i just don't get it. i told one of your producers before we came on the air, we have never in before have what is taken place in the last year and couple of months. we have gone through the entire congress without a single open rule debate on any issue. they shut down the appropriations process . so you are right. we were promised openness and transparency and accountability and we have gotten the opposite and the american people understand it . last summer, 300 page on cap and trade bill at 3:00 and told we were going to vote on it. people chanted read the bill, read the bill. >> 2700 pagings congressman

'nen and 98. he was in prince george, maryland. 99 fairfax county, virginia. there was a attack in prince george and far face and leesburg and there is a five year stretch to the next time dna identifies him and that is in rhode island in 2006. what do you think happened in five years that made him go silent? >> it is possible that the police may have made contact with him. by him moving up north he may have disguised his crimes thinking that the evidence wouldn't link back to virge -ina. but it has. our hope is that viewers will make the connection. member who they had contact or relative or neighbor that may
7:28 am
link up to this information that who they would do would have connections to these areas. that's why the clues are so person. >> yes . detective, you have a sketch but asked us not to show it because you think it may be too dated. why dont you have an ipdated one of him? >> as the attacks have continued, he's been adept at using a hood or mask to disguy his identity . we just don't want somebody to focus on a sketch and not come forward to give us information to use to solve it. >> again, the best chances that if somebody was in the area during the years of his multiple attacks and we'll put's number up on the screen for our audience in case they have -- it is crime solvers.

9:04 am
been nervous and he met with nancy pelosi and she can something so sway him and's going to have to go back to the district in new york and explain why he voted for the legislation. >> and yesterday when he was asked about it, he came racing out of the office. just ran by reporters, you're a rookie congressman, give an answer, he gave an answer. >> and congressman john bowcherry why he's switching his vote, let's hear the rational. >> the pressure i felt was back in the district from the families who called me and written to me who have told me that they want me to be with them and not with the insurance companies. the pressure that i felt back home far outweighs anything that could happen here in washington d.c. >> see that's interesting because it's a contrary point of view to what you were saying they're getting pressure from constituents to

vote for it. >> oh, sure. >> and he is on then trying to weekend to figure out way way to go. >> there's a rules committee that begins at ten o'clock on capitol hill, about a thousand challenges from the republicans on going forward and then the president comes to capitol hill at three o'clock to make his final pitch. on the other side of this is the republicans and a tea party movement at capitol hill saying kill the bill. here is what john boehner had to say about why this bill should not pass. >> speaker nancy pelosi and democrat leaders are too blinded by their washington knows best attitude. too out of touch with the concerns of working families to listen. instead of trying to do better, democrats have packed this bill full of kickback pay offs and sweetheart deals in order to buy the support of lawmakers and washington special interest groups. democrats are so afraid of the public's outrage they've devised a strategy that would allow them to force this massive bill through congress
9:06 am
without oon voting on it. >> that's a question this morning about some of the votes and the vote count. i've seen what you guys have been saying to us on twitter this morning, look, the numbers are dubious, 217 and dave just addressed it a few minutes ago. doesn't necessarily mean they've got the votes, but minority leader john boehner saying republicans can't do. americans have to rally and that's what the tea party is doing in the kill the bill rally and listen to what they say about it. >> i told them that if he votes for this bill, then i will be actively supporting whatever opponent he has in november. >> anything the government touches, the post office, hey, you name any government agency that ever, that ever spent money well. >> i told the district how appreciative we were of congressman sticking to his guns and staying strong, we know how tough it is for him. >> if you're one of the people saying look, at least tomorrow it will be all over, okay,
9:07 am
because like it or not we've talked about it for a year, so, tomorrow we can take a deep breath and it will be over. not so fast because republicans including orrin hatch saying tomorrow won't be the end of it. republicans are plotting ways to nullify the current bill in the house, that would involve more voting on it beyond tomorrow. >> right, hatch says at least they have right now to send it back to the house for yet another vote after tomorrow and the republicans also kinked of outlined a couple of things they could do to nullify this bill. 38 states, first off, are filing lawsuits to block the federal mandate of health insurance, saying you cannot require americans to buy something and fine them if they don't buy it. we talked to virginia attorney general, he was very adamant that this is unconstitutional. >> yeah, and an instant repeal by republicans to try to repeal the health measure altogether and of course, you know, legislative watch dogs look at this and say look, they don't have much of a leg
9:08 am

9:10 am
the senate bill and so those sweetheart deals are there, that's baloney. >> that's the opposite of what republicans are saying and as you mentioned republicans say we are going to remember all of these deals come november, back to you guys. >> yeah, they're going to say there's 100 million in there for chris dodd of connecticut to build a hospital and montana getting kickbacks, there are a lot of deals and they're not going away in 2010 like you pointed out. >> other news, here are your headlines. iraq's parliamentary elections, showing prime minister alawi. leading maliki. the election commission says final results will be announced in coming days. tragedy as two air national guard soldiers were helping with flood prevention in fargo, north dakota. police say a woman driving a mazda crashed into a pickup carrying those soldiers. fortunately, none of their injuries are life threatening. the woman was arrested for

>> all right. well, another turn to the yes column for democrats this morning. we've just learned that new york democrat scott murphy says he will vote in favor of the health care bill. >> that brings the projected count and of course, these are very fluid, for democrats to 217. here to break down the numbers with us, fox news and fox business anchor neil cavuto.
9:17 am
good morning, neil. >> good morning, alisyn. >> it sounds like they're already at work and minds are being changed. what's happening there behind you in that building this morning, that's changing some democrats' votes? >> what's actually happening at the moment is a marathon. i kid you not what they're calling a national marathon sponsored by sun trust and there are thousands of joggers running. they're running away from the capit capitol. >> they're running away from it. >> really, literally they are. >> i think the drums-- >> i'm looking at the dudes running away from the capitol and later on we are going to see the president and having a powwow with 253 congressional democrats, congressional democratic caucus, if you will, the democratic caucus, if you will, there so these guys are running away. the politicians are running in and that tells you all you need to know. so, i don't know how the marathon's going to end up. i have a pretty good idea now,
9:18 am
given these latest swings to yes votes how this health care thing could end up. it is looking increasingly likely, but as you folks have been stressing throughout your broadcast, these numbers aren't worth the paper they're printed on. because they change so fast, but it's looking, and i stress looking, like this will come to pass. >> and you bring up a great point about the numbers themselves. what's interesting could be the message behind what the president has said or spoken to the different democratic house members, specifically dennis kucinich on that flight to ohio. let's play that sound and get your reaction to that. >> sure. >> you were dead set against this thing. what changed? >> what changed is when i realized every effort i was making to try to get a public option, to protect the right of states to pursue single payer was hitting a wall so i had to make a decision. so neil, it sounds like the president's message seemed to hit home and resonate with these democrats. >> well, i don't want to be
9:19 am
jaded, i don't want to be cynical, i'm in the nation's capital where it's-- jimmy stewart comes to mind more than al capone, but i'm telling you, something happened on that flight, something was offered or transferred and i don't think it was the napkins that said air force one. i could be wrong, but you know, obviously, this is part of the sausage making process we've gotten into this before, that's as american as america can be. i guess because we're talking about something that's close to a trillion dollar package, the single biggest domestic condition is since world war ii, the new deal to be more to the point. i guess what makes it so glaring is how it's being done on such a grand scale. >> neil, though it's a trillion dollar package democrats are touting the fact that it should save a trillion dollars over two decades. how can we really know what this plan is going to do in the second decade? >> well, i don't know. i know that's the cbo's job to sort of forecast down the road. i don't know about you guys. i don't know what i'm having for breakfast tomorrow morning
9:20 am
let alone, let alone forecasting something ten years out. but that is the cbo's job. they have the numbers they're given. the parameters they're given. they try to punch them in and come to the same conclusions that the house and senate have. having said that, those numbers might change. the congressional budget office could be faced with new data now to compensate doctors who feel that this plan punishes them. so, there's a move afoot right now to compensate those doctors to make them medicare cuts not that severe. all of a sudden that changes dramatically. we are going to be watching that and watching the cbo score and whether this masses muster, and watching what could be an hour long sort of soap opera, never to the rules committee. >> we are going to be watching you in about 40 minutes with your special coverage. thanks so much for coming on, more "fox & friends" for you in two minutes. ♪

9:25 am
>> and we know that meet is an important part after diet as many, as many nutritionists will say and happen to get protein into your diet. she's met with some backlash as you can imagine from dairy farmers, farmers of all. >> lks. let me show you the full screen, we meant no disrespect to the agriculture industry and remind everybody with march madness upon us a lot of chicken wings and burgers following the ncaa. does that sound like backtracking? >> well, it sounds like an interesting loaf. >> i know you're not here to insult the governor, but i just want to get your response to what her original thought process was. because when she dechaired that everybody in michigan should not eat meat today she wasn't talking about lowering your cholesterol or adding in vegetables and grains, what she said was reducing the consumption of meat can die crease the spokes to infectious pathogens, like e.

9:27 am
national ag day, also, and encouraged people to enjoy a balanced deet including dairy and meat and the live stock products. the question really is, where did this come from? >> and what's the answer? >> we feel it came from some groups that are anti-animal agriculture and that it just-- like peta or something of their ilk. >> what are you having for breakfast? >> i already had my eggs. >> bacon. >> sausage. >> a man after clayton's heart. >> wayne wood is the president of the farm fewer owe and a dairy farmer. we appreciate you joining you gos, we have some corner dogs we had in the grand prix room earlier, you want to try one of those. >> that'd be great. >> add that to the diet. >> thanks for coming in. >> thanks for this opportunity. >> our pleasure. first he voted yes to the health care reform and when the senate was rolled out, it
