7:12 am
questions, i want to apologize to those people in fort myers. it was decided and i think appropriately by fox news that that seminar i was going to do was canceled. notice was sent out by e-mail. sometimes people don't get them. i apologize. we will be doing it in the future down in fort myers. i think it was appropriate we cover this for what you're going through in that part of the country. >> peter: absolutely. i want to come to one myself. first question, let's get out of the box. when we buy property insurance, what are the responsibility of the insurance company in dealing with you, the insured, when you submit a claim? what's their responsibility, bob? >> peter, you and i know as lawyers that there is what we call an applied covenant of good faith. meaning if i the insured put a claim in to the insurance company, that insurance company is to deal with me in good faith. i have to give them timely notice. they have to respond back to me to try to help me. that is a contractual understanding between you and i,
7:13 am
the insured president insurer. >> peter: if they don't act in good faith, you have recourse and you can go to the state insurance department or bring a lawsuit, right? >> yes. you and i know, katrina had thousands of lawsuits, believe it or not, that still have been pending in the supreme court in louisiana where insurance companies denied coverage. >> peter: with sandy, we're dealing with wind, floods and fires. how is this resolved if there are so-called exclusions in the contract on those issues? >> most carriers don't cover flood insurance. they specifically exclude it because they don't want to pay the claim. many carriers don't cover it because everyone parts of the country. there is federal govern through fema that you can actually buy flood insurance. the problem is going to be here action pete, is that with devastation you have experienced back east, there is not even going to be enough money there. so ultimately what's going to happen is you're going to see the taxpayers have to absorb so much of this loss.
7:14 am
what's important, you're going to see a lot of litigation on wind issues. was it a result of tidal wave? did the fires happen? i want our viewers to know that when you contact these insurance companies that you paid premiums for for years, it's not going to necessarily be that they're going to sit down and write a check. >> peter: final question, the disputes that will arise out of sandy, disputes on wind, disputes about deductibles maybe? >> deductibles will be some issues. there is going to be the causation issue to where did it come from? what it comes down to, peter, you and i know, again as lawyers, interpretation of language by the courts. a lot of these cases are going to be put in a court and judge also have to interpret the language. >> peter: bob, i want you in court and if i can't have you, i'll have me. good to see you. we'll see you next week. >> take care. >> peter: millions of tax returns hacked. is your personal information at risk? the story is coming up next. then, some mothers who are trying to do it all are turning

7:19 am
sandy strike on new york city. it features the intensity of the wind and rain and water at the exact moment that the power goes out. look at that. there it goes out in lower manhattan. a lot of plas, it is still not back on. gretch, over to you. >> gretchen: interesting topic here, moms forced to juggle jobs and taking care of their kids are taking new steps to get it all done. they're actually popping a pill known as sderol used to tried adhd, and a increasingly number of women are taking it. joining me is mommy blogger and a doctor, addiction psychiatrist and medical director of resurrection behavioral health. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: okay. jessica, i guess i'm shocked at this as a mom who also works and i can't imagine how popping pills would help that whole equation. >> don't look to me to explain
7:20 am
it because i don't think anything about this is going to make your life a lot better. but i do know quite a few women who have taken aderol and with these sort of vague add diagnoses, i'm not sure it's doing them any favors. i'm not a physician, but i also think there is this sort of shortcut to if i really want to function at a high level, i need to make sure i sleep enough, eat well, exercise, and take care of myself. if someone is going to offer may pill instead, i think there are times in our lives where it's very tempting. and particularly when you're raising young kids. i know people feel pulled a million different directions. >> gretchen: so they want to maybe focus and lose weight because maybe they don't feel like they have time to go to the gym or don't want to. we have a doctor on the panel, this is one of the most stupid things i've ever heard in my life t. really going on? >> well, we have an epidemic in this country of what's called the nonmedical use of
7:21 am
prescription drugs. aderol is part of that. it's a powerful medication. it's a good one when it's appropriately used. but when it's used for performance enhancement, which is really what we're talking about, it's a misuse. it has potential problems with unintentional poisoning, withdrawal. what goes up, must come down. then people start using drugs like xanax in order to come down. and you get this sort of better living through chemistry mentality. it's dangerous. >> gretchen: shocking. let's look at the stats which are also shocking. we should mention these are all legal drugs out there. the increase in aderol, prescriptions for women age 26 to 39 have increased by 750% in an eight-year span. jessica, you're on the west coast. is this just a west coast thing or is this happening all across the country? >> oh, no. this is very much an all across
7:22 am
the country phenomenon. we not only have pharmacies here in los angeles. >> gretchen: i was wondering if things sometimes start on the coast and then move in. let's look at another stat. adults faking adhd in order to get the prescriptions. 25% of adult patients admit to faking those symptoms to get a prescription. doctor, is that how you see it happening or are there actually physicians who would just hand it out even if you don't have the symptoms of attention deficit disorder? >> i think you have both. you certainly have most physicians who are trying to do the best they can. they're busy. people come in. they're coached. they coach themselves on the symptoms and the physician tries to help. then, of course, you have a small number who will give you the drugs no matter what. but in general, it's something that's really eating away at the fabric of our nation. it's not just mothers. it's across the board.
7:23 am
that's why we have these prescription monitoring programs now. this is a serious problem. >> gretchen: totally out of control. very interesting debate and eye opening. jessica and doctor, thanks for your time today. >> thank you. >> gretchen: can president obama win florida by blaming president bush? the state's former governor and president bush's brother, jeb bush, here live to react. it's the final weekly unemployment report before voters go to the polls. it's going to be released in two minutes. charlie gasparino here with those numbers hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy.
7:24 am
7:25 am
7:26 am
7:27 am
>> steve: this fox news number? >> the economy clear israeli improving. i think it's improving off the bottom. it's a huge increase. i don't think this is enough to get an un-- it's politically speaking, it's that friday number that people will be focusing on of the what is the unemployment rate. >> steve: the monthly? >> yeah. i think that may tick up.
7:28 am
particularly if more people are looking for work, it could have an impact on this race by picking up even though things are getting marginally better. >> gretchen: does this thursday number, which we always report weekly, the first-time unemployment claims, people walk into the office for the first time, does that number correlate? >> sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. none of these numbers correlate very well. >> gretchen: so because this went down and lower than expected doesn't mean unemployment will go down tomorrow? >> no. on friday, if the number goes up, for example, goes up to 8, let's say, 8%, that doesn't mean that things are necessarily bad 'cause more people are looking for work. they feel more confident. so all these numbers have to be looked at in context and -- remember, these are statistical estimates. they're not exact. >> steve: right. with the last monthly number we got, there were so many jobs added by the federal government. >> that, too. >> steve: and so many of them were part-time and we really want full-time jobs. >> economic growth is pretty meager. we're talking 2%. when you take out the government part of that economic growth,
7:29 am
it's 1.3%, which is lousy. >> steve: all right. you wrote an op ed in the newspaper today here in new york about wall street's disaster nonplans. talk to us about the new york stock exchange down there, essentially under water. we got lucky, didn't we? >> i'm not suggesting people should have set up trading desks on the hudson river during the flood. bottom line is this: this is this epicenter of global capitalism. they should have a contingency plan to at least stay open. they didn't. it looked like the wall street firms, which have offices all overt country, not just here in new york. they're in dallas. they could have set autopsy contingency plan to keep the markets open. i think that it's important that markets stay open. you need to know the value of ibm. like i said, two days, not a big deal. suppose it was two weeks? firms can't get financing. no one knows ha their portfolio is, that could be bad. >> gretchen: because officials had contingency plans since
7:30 am
9-11. they provide office space for people who live in the suburbs to go to their own desk and a computer. i'm just saying why the stock market didn't. >> yes. listen, yes. they do have contingency plans to basic work. but they don't have contingency plans to keep the markets running. i spent 20 minutes with a guy from goldman sachs to try to get him to tell me what exactly is this contingency plan? why couldn't you open up an office in akron, ohio and do some trading? they couldn't really tell me. it's kind of pathetic after 9-11. >> peter: it's well said. they had a chance after 9-11 to do something and they haven't done it. so three strikes, we'll be out. now is the chance to do it. i agree with you. >> steve: charles, thank you, sir. >> gretchen: this morning, for the first time in days, new york's infrastructure starting to get back on track. a lot of people breathing a sigh of relief. joining us live from battery park which is way downtown new york with the new developments, anna kooiman. hi, anna. >> good morning to you and good morning to everybody at home.
7:31 am
new york's mass transit system certainly trying dry out because it is still swamped. check out this building behind me. it's the staten island ferry service. that service is suspended indefinitely at the moment. this police line here is in front of the battery park underpass because there is 50 feet of water still there. your governor, andrew cuomo, asked the federal government to bring in crews from both the army and the navy who were deployed after hurricane katrina to come in and start pumping out. they're going to be at the world trade center. they're going to be at the tunnels and in the subways. some of those subways did start running this morning just before 6:00 o'clock with limited service. 5 1/2 million people daily ride in these subways. the mta says they lose $18 million every single day that those trains don't run. governor cuomo has declared a transportation emergency, so fees for train, subways and buses will be waived today and tomorrow. we do have live aerial pictures
7:32 am
of commuters trying to get into the city. there aren't any train, so everybody is coming in to work. they're having to drive because of the limitations on those. and there is still a lot of road closures as well. between 6:00 a.m. and midnight, only cars that are allowed to go over the east river bridges have to have three occupants or more in it. they're not giving tickets, but you have to have three or more. it doesn't matter if the restrictions are in place or not, it's bottleneck everywhere. everywhere that you see. new jersey experiencing some similar problems. boats are up on elevated train tracks. there is no time line for restarting rail service. bus service will be restored today, we're told. there is a major issue with gas shortages. tempers are flairing at the pump and the mayor of blackfield said police responded to eight incidents over fights for break in line. more than 80% of filling stations are currently unable to sell and major pipelines were shut down during the hurricane. power outages and other damage
7:33 am
really delaying restarting fuel production. governor chris christie has now issued a waiver that will let gas stations purchase out of state gas. typically you have to have a special license to be able to do so. as far as the economic impact goes, some estimates soar over $20 billion in this aftermath from hurricane sandy. back to you. >> steve: anna kooiman, lower manhattan, thank you very much. the gas lines, i saw only one gas station open and i told you about it earlier. it was reminiscent of when jimmy carter was president of the united states and they had the -- according to your tag number, even days, even numbers would gas up this day. odd numbers, those days. the lines are extraordinary. >> peter: yeah. i'd like to -- the president is promising help and help is really needed in this area. how the federal government is going to assist on this. we need immediate help. really tough. >> gretchen: we want to show you this picture out of the destruction. there is amazing stories. look at this. residents who lost everything in
7:34 am
breezy point, queen, new york, raising the american flag. that is the neighborhood that lost over 100 homes in a fire during the hurricane. patriotism still lives. >> steve: it does indeed. we've got other headlines. search underway now for two panthers on the loose in the florida area after hurricane sandy. this photo from the rescue back in 2011 after their mother died. officials say a crashing tree broke open their fence at the white oak conservation center. they then broke free. they have radio collars transmitting their location. so maybe they can track them down. currently they think they might still be on the property. >> peter: we told you about this story yesterday. former democratic vice president al gore blaming climate change for hurricane sandy. chief meteorologists for weather bell says we were overdue for a storm like sandy and gore couldn't be more wrong. >> that stunningly ignorant or
7:35 am
stunningly depptive what al gore said. in the 1950s from 1954 to 1960, ten major hurricanes ran the eastern seaboard. he doesn't know what he's talking about and ever since he shot his mouth off about katrina, we've seen total global tropical activity go to record low levels. >> beth: democratic new york governor andrew cuomo linked climate change to sandy. >> gretchen: the man who wrote the hit "oh, pretty woman" with singer roy orbison has died. ♪ pretty woman walking down the street ♪ ♪ pretty wop ♪ the kind i'd like to meet ♪ . >> gretchen: bill dees passed away last week in arkansas. he once said that writing a song with issueison changed his life forever. they were recorded by johnny cash and loretta lynn. he was 73 years old. those are your headlines today. >> steve: coming up next on the rundown on this thursday, can president obama win the state of

florida by blaming former president bush? the former president's brother, who was once upon a time the governor of florida, jeb bush, joins us live next. ♪

7:40 am
about 65 degrees without a cloud in the sky and seeing devastation of a hurricane in the northeast. i wouldn't have ever imagined it. >> steve: yeah. nobody knows more about this kind of clean-up than a governor from florida. i live in new jersey and our governor, chris christie, met up with the president of the united states yesterday and at the end, the governor announced that we've got something like half a million gallons of diesel, which we really need 100 big generators coming in. that's the kind of stuff that governors do when it comes to big, gigantic disasters like this. >> yeah. absolutely. the governor has, in his emergency response center in new jersey and in new york and other places, have vast resources, coordinated at the local level with the private sector and the federal government as a partner to provide assistance. but the governor is really the commander in chief of the response to this and the
7:41 am
recovery efforts. i think watching on television, seeing mayor bloomberg and governor christie, they're doing a fine job. you don't have to have an r and d, this is not a political thing. they're doing what's best for the people of their state. you can see it. you can just see how they respond and they're doing fine. >> steve: okay. meanwhile, in addition to the hurricane, we've got the campaign and i know you were out with mitt romney yesterday along with marco rubio and connie mac. florida right now looks like, according to the poll, still a toss-up. what do you think about mitt romney's chances of being president come six days from now >> i think governor romney -- it's close race for sure, but i think he's going to carry florida. the intensity is on our side. the other phenomenon that doesn't get a lot of attention is independent voters decide a loft elections. if you assume similar intensity between democrats and republicans, independents really will decide the election and in
7:42 am
almost every poll that romney is winning, either by double digits or high single digits among independent voters. they've decided that he's the guy that can begin to solve problems. i agree with them. i think they're right. i think their instincts are correct about this. i think that will be the difference in the election. it will be a close election, but i do believe that governor romney is probably doing better than what the polls show because of intensity and the swing voters at the end will swing towards him as they have been doing. >> steve: one of the things about your state, florida is there are a loft people on fixed income and a lot of retired people and when they hear mitt romney and paul ryan talk about figuring a way to fix medicare and social security, they go, you know what, i'm on that, i like that idea. the other side, the president of the united states really hasn't come up with a plan and hasn't made that public. so i would imagine if i were down in florida, i'd be looking at the guy who has at least got the plan for a second look.
7:43 am
>> steve, i'll tell you, in contrary to all the conventional wisdom, the chattering class, elder voters in florida have consistently supported romney-ryan and there has been no change amongst voters over the age of 65 in florida. mitt romney is winning by double digits. all the scare tactics haven't worked. i think it's to your point. i think it's because the romney-ryan ticket has persuaded and explained what their plan is and the president has been left just to attack. i mean, for him to think or say that it's very difficult to get things done from the inside is pretty telling. he's the president of the united states. if he can't do it, maybe he should step aside and let someone else try. >> steve: i think it was two years ago i was down in bonita springs for your celebration for reading program, which is great. you raised hundreds of millions of dollars for folks. and at that time i did an interview for this program and i
7:44 am
asked you, two years ago, can you believe the president of the united states is blaming your brother for the mess he's in? it's two years later, he's still doing it! >> i know. i ought to keep my mouth shut about this, but it perturbs me to no end to have in the fourth year of a presidency, the president constantly be talking about the past. i mean, the guy was dealt a tough hand. we got that. but in the fourth year, you should be held responsible for your actions. and it's like this constant refrain, almost as though your kid comes and says the dog ate my homework, you know. at some point you have to accept responsibility. leaders do that. and i'm sure the guy's motives are good, but this whole insistence on pushing someone else down to make yourself look better is really not what leadership is about. >> steve: former governor of the great state of florida, thank you very much. >> take care.
7:45 am
>> steve: straight ahead when we come back, we'll go live to a new jersey city where thousands are stranded and the national guard is patrolling. first, let's check in with martha mccallum who lives in new jersey with a preview of what happens in ten minutes. >> boy, steve, unbelievable scenes. this morning brings more harsh reality of the mess that is left behind by sandy. campaign now five days away. you've got gas lines and brawls breaking out in some places. we're going to talk to a great group of folks. bret baier is here. bill and i will see you at the top of the hour. years ago, my doctor told me to take a centrum silver multivitamin every day. i told him, sure. can't hurt, right? then i heard this news about a multivitamin study looking at long-term health benefits for men over 50. the one they used in that study... centrum silver. that's what i take. my doctor! he knows his stuff. [ male announcer ] centrum.

7:47 am
7:48 am
>> peter: we have quick headlines for you. a county in illinois plans to move forward with a proposed gun tax. a board will vote on it tomorrow. under the plan, there would be a
7:49 am
$25 tax on the purchase of a firearm. there was also a push to tax the bullets, but the board dropped it since the tax would be more than the actual price of the ammunition. a congressional research service report shows $1 trillion was spent on welfare last year in the united states. that's enough to send every poor household in the usa a check for nearly $60,000. >> gretchen: back to our top story, the death toll now from hurricane sandy, unfortunately rising. at least 74 people have died. as we mentioned, new jersey taking the biggest hit. the national guard sent in to hoboken to try and rescue thousands of people trapped in their homes after the catastrophic flooding there. >> steve: now let's go across the river as well to ridgefield, new jersey. no, it's not 1973. there are dozens and dozens of drivers waiting on-line for gas right now.
7:50 am
sandy causing a shortage for many reasons, including refineries that have shut down. governor chris christie issued a waiver, allowing gas stations and other fuel purchasers to get gas from out of state suppliers. they don't normally do that. normally merchants not license to do import fuel that they can not legally buy it from other states. keep in mind, not only are those cars running out of gas, but a lot of those -- look there. there is one of the guys who has a bucket truck, he needs to be on assignment. a lot of those cars have gas canisters they need to fill up their generators because that's the only way they can generate heat in many of their houses. >> peter: for the first time in days, new york's infrastructure is starting to get back on track. some subways and trains running this morning and the new york subway system. this is a live look at the battery park tunnel. underpass. it's still flooded. that's about 50 feet of water to the ceiling.
7:51 am
cars are submerged under there. some good news, though. la guardia airport, which was immersed in water. kennedy had a tremendous amount of water, but is back open just one hour ago. that's faster than anticipated. >> gretchen: i'm shocked that la guardia is open because it was all under water. that's great news for all of those people trying to get out of here and trying to get back in. we'll be right back. use. but with those single mile travel cards... [ bridesmaid ] blacked out... but i'm a bridesmaid. oh!
