12:30 pm
all right. i want to bring you some live pictures that we're getting out here of a car chase in los angeles. see that blue sedan, blue honda, i understand. and it has been driving erratically for the last -- it's been going on for about the last hour. this is the upper san fernando valley area, just so you know. and this car has kind of been out of control, actually driving the wrong direction on several surface streets. apparently it has traveled on the 405, the 118, the 5 freeways. obviously we only see one or two police cars behind it there. but we want to go to steve cardy.
12:31 pm
he's a former motorcycle policeman. steve, thank you so much for being with us. when you got a car, let me ask you about this scenario. when you've got a car -- and we don't know why police began this pursuit. we need to point that out. we don't know how many people are in the car. when you have a car driving as erratically as this one is the wrong way on surface streets. as we saw there, just went through an intersection and an accident could have happened there with that car coming through. what is the protocol for police? >> well, he's traveling at a rather high rate of speed. you see there that he almost had a collision with another vehicle. he's running from the police for a reason. and he's doing so in a very reckless manner but they do have police cars in pursuit. >> now, when you get -- when you get to surface streets, obviously we're talking about how this car, we understand, and it's been going on for an hour again, on several main artery freeways, we should point out. here he goes through another intersection without any regard to anybody. now he's turning all over the flas heplace here.
12:32 pm
looks like maybe the plpolice we looking for a pit maneuver? >> it's a little bit dangerous to do a pit maneuver here now because of the high volume of traffic. they will probably want to get some cars up ahead and probably use the strips on him to slow him down. >> oh, boy. steve, are you watching this with us? >> i've got it on. looks like they may -- yeah, looks like he slowed down. >> he just slowed down a little bit. it's disconcerting though to see him swerve to the other side of the road, going in the wrong direction because you never know. obviously we don't have a wide shot to know what's coming up. >> right. >> can you in any way give us an indication of how fast you think they might be going at this point? >> right now he looks like to be traveling at about 40 miles an hour, based upon the view that we have from the camera. earlier he was traveling much faster. and the faster he goes, that's a 3500 pound death machine if he crashes into someone. >> it's interesting that as he does kind of blow through these
12:33 pm
intersections, okay, here we go. looks like the police officer is coming up on him again. the other cars, everybody else is stopped. i mean, are they giving out over the radio warnings, obviously, on where this car might be as people may will driving in those particular areas? >> i've been in la during pursuits like this. it is typical for the local media and the local radio stations to follow that. they may be giving a blow by blow on where they are or it could be just that it's the luck of their travel time that they are hitting the intersections when traffic is at a slow pace. >> here reis, another left-hand turn. oh, it looks like he's slowing down. we really can't gauge what he's going to do, being on these surface streets. here comes the police car up to the left side of him. and he's going to turn around again. is it true, steve, that a lot of these guys who run from police and in car chases, that they go to areas that they're familiar with? >> yeah, they do.
12:34 pm
and many times it also happens that they're in areas that they're not familiar with based upon, you know, how eager they are to get away and how, you know, this person, his maneuvers and the way he's driving almost makes he believe that he's intoxicated to some degree, whether by drug or by alcohol. >> we can see here -- >> boxing him in here. >> boxed him in. looks like he's the only one in the car based from our vantage point from this helicopter. police obviously have their guns drawn. >> here we go. giving up his hands. his hands are coming out. the officers are approaching the car. ordering him out. ordering to keep his hands in view. the other officer is checking the rear of the car for ok pants. >> there goes the car. >> yep. >> okay. so obviously they -- the car just backed up into the police car. >> yeah. we're going to have a little bit of a -- okay, they got him outside on the ground. the car is going to move. >> okay. we understand now this started as a failure to yield traffic stop. now we know what this was about
12:35 pm
in carson, california, we're told. obviously, one thing that struck me was the police officers very bold, obviously going up to that car, and weren't afraid of him. they -- at some point they realized maybe he didn't have a weapon? >> well, by him showing his hands, they still kept their guns on him. if they did have a taser available, that would have been the time to employ it. but right now it looks like it's come to closure without any further incident. no officers apparently injured and the suspect in custody. >> okay. yeah, four police cars we see there outside this residence. we want to watch the arrest again because it's interesting he pulled into a home. you have to wonder, steve, does he live here? >> in no likelihood, no, he probably did make a turn into an unfamiliar area and they were able to box him in and he chose not to crash into the police cars. we see here on the repeat, two officers approaching. he appears to be compliant. he's got his hands out, good
12:36 pm
indication. now we've met with a little bit of resistance. >> why would he hold his hands up and then not get out of the car when they ordered him to do so? >> we don't know if he's intoxicated or a violent individual and we see here that they did get him out of the car and they did take him into custody without further ado. >> all righty. steve cardy, former motorcycle police officer. steve, thank you so much for watching through this. appreciate having your expertise here. you're seeing the end of what has been an hour long police pursuit in the upper san fernando area. going the wrong way on surface streets and the 405, the 118, and the 5. looks like they have things under control now. and he is in handcuffs. and as soon as we hear anything about why this all happened, we'll let you know. but again, it was a failure to yield in carson, california, that started this whole thing.
12:37 pm
can i see a show of hands of the people in this room who believe we have the right to share our views with our elected officials? okay. take that to nancy pelosi. >> well, there's been another volatile town hall meeting on the hot button issue of health care reform. this one hosted today by senator arlen specter in lebanon, pennsylvania. he has another one scheduled today as well. they faced heated questions as you can see there, about president obama's plan to overhaul health care. most of the kround were really vocal about their opposition about government-run health insurance. some of the people got so angry, in fact, they almost came to blows and specter had to step in to calm them down. look at this. >> capitalistic country. a free enterprise. and insurance -- and -- and -- and -- you want to be -- you
12:38 pm
want to be led out of here, you're welcome to go. now, wait a minute. now, wait a minute. now, wait a minute. now, wait a minute. wait a minute. >> i am leaving. i have every right to leave. >> wait a minute. he has a right to leave. he's right. wait a minute. wait a minute. he -- wait a minute! >> personally, i happen to turn 65 this year. call medicare! >> that's a similar meeting in mas maryland. this is yesterday. the democrats had to shout his way through this meeting as hundreds of protestors boo'd and heckled. the crowd was also pretty
12:39 pm
hostile at yesterday's town hall in mcminnville, oregon. he pled to keep things from getting out of hand by allowing people to ask questions only if their number was drawn from a hat. here's the thing. in just a couple minutes, president obama will hold his own town hall meeting on health care. this will be in portsmith, new hampshire. he plans to highlight how he wants to overhaul the system, how that may affect people who already have health insurance through their employer. but white house press secretary robert gibbs says they are anticipating that the president will be bombarded with vigorous debate and question. >> i think we're expecting to see what we've seen in hundreds of town hall meetings that barack obama has done. people are going to raise their hand. they're going to ask questions. some will support what he's trying to do. some will have questions. some will oppose. the president has never done a town hall meeting where everybody agreed with everybody he said. he's anxious to talk directly to the american people and give them the facts about what health care reform means to them.
12:40 pm
>> the president and other democratic leaders say they believe right wing commentators are spreading misinformation about proposals in congress. a 4-year-old thought fast when his grandfather's life was in danger. >> he handled it better than -- he handled it better than i did. >> saving awpaw's life. >> why this little guy acted just in the nick of time.
12:41 pm
12:42 pm
eunice kennedy shriver died this morning. she it was sister of president john f. kennedy but also founded the special olympics. her family, including daughter maria shriver was by her side.
12:43 pm

12:45 pm
12:46 pm
i want to give you an update on the high speed chase we brought you a couple homes ago. it lasted an hour. it's an upper san fernando valley area of california. see that blue honda there? it was obviously driving erratically, just swerving around that car and in and out of lanes, driving the wrong way, mind you, on surface streets. now, obviously this is when it hit a residential area. and those high speeds slowed down a bit. you're going to see this blue honda again pull into a driveway. we don't know if this is is where the suspect lives burt yo can see police drew their weapons, boxed him in and pulled him out. obviously he had his hands up as if he was surrendering but then wouldn't get out of the car. the chase apparently started
12:47 pm
after the driver failed to yield. thankfully no injuries were reported. you can see here the car is going to back right up into a police cruiser. talk about lost in translation. secretary of state hillary clinton got angry during a q and a session with congolese university students. the reporters in that room say a student speaking in french asked what president obama would think about chinese financial contracts with congo. well, apparently the translator made a mistake. listen to this. >> translator: what does mr. clinton think through the mouth of mrs. clinton and what does plmt obama think on this situation? thank you very much. >> wait, you want me to tell you what my husband thinks? my husband is not the secretary of state. i am. you ask my opinion, i will tell

hi, everybody. breaking news just in on the michael jackson investigation. police have executed a search warrant at a las vegas pharmacy in connection with jackson's death. more than dozen law enforcement officers, federal drug agents and all inside the applied pharmacy in las vegas. you'll remember that law enforcement officers also served, actually search warrants, not arrest warrants, at the las vegas home and office of jackson's personal doctor, con rad murray. ted rowlands joins us now with the very latest. >> this is a follow-up according to a source familiar with the investigation into that last search warrant that you just mentioned at dr. conrad's murray's home and office in las

vegas. this is the fifth search warrant in connection with dr. conrad murray, his personal physician. two served at the clinic and two in las vegas prior to this and this now the fifth at a pharmacy not far from the clinic where dr. conrad murray practiced in las vegas. this comes on the heels of the conclusion of the coroner's report in l.a. here. they finished their report into the death investigation, but they have held it because lapd has asked them, the reason, they say the investigation continues and, clearly, this is another sign that this investigation while still being called a death investigation, is continuing and it is concentrated still on dr. conrad murray. so, the fifth, the fifth search warrant served in connection with the death of michael jackson towards his former doctor, conrad murray. >> we don't know toxicology results or anything, right?
1:02 pm
>> the coroner has done an excellent job of keeping that private. basically with this statement they released yesterday, clearly a situation where you get the feeling that they would love for this to come out so that they can share their findings. they have an exhaustive investigation, but, they've been asked to continue this seal on it until the investigation is concluded. what we don't know is how far along the lapd and the lada who would inevitably be involved in filing charges in this case are. to what point they'll be allowed the coroner to release this information at this point, the coroner is just saying, we're done, but we can't tell you what we found until the lapd gives us the go ahead and, clearly, lapd is out serving another warrant today. >> is that pretty close to dr. murray's practice? >> yes, both on flamingo in las vegas, very close in proximity to where murray was practicing. >> ted rowlands with the latest from las vegas, thank you,

we're watching president obama as he's holding this town hall meeting on health care in portsmouth, new hampshire. live pictures as he addresses the people who have all gathered there to hear him. he's highlighting how he wants to overhaul the system, how that may affect people who now have have health care through their employer. so many questions out there. polling shows americans who have insurance are skeptical of proposals to expand coverage to nearly 50 million uninsured people. >> we also want to make sure that everybody has some options so there's been talk about this public option. this is where a lot of the idea of government takeover of health care comes from. all we want to do is set up a set of options so that if you don't have health insurance or you're under insured, you can have the same deal that members of congress have, which is they can look at a menu of options, we're calling it an exchange, but it's basically just a menu of different health care plans, and you will be able to select the one that suits your family
2:02 pm

okay. want to bring you up to par on something that we've been watching today. police and federal drug agents are searching a las vegas pharmacy in connection with michael jackson's death. more than a dozen law enforcement officers were seen inside that pharmacy. a dea spokesman says they're looking for all records of controlled substances provided by applied pharmacy services. remember, law enforcement officers served similar warrants at the las vegas home and office of jackson's personal physician dr. conrad murray. we want to update you on a high-speed car chase you saw unfold just a short time ago on hln. lasted about an hour in the upper san fernando valley area of california. you have to think the person in that van is wondering what's going on. local media report the -- was swerving in and out of lanes. it did slow down.
2:05 pm
he pulled into a driveway and that's where police with their weapons drawn boxed him in. now, it looked like he was holding his hands up to surrender, but then obviously wouldn't get out of the car on his own, so officers had to pull him out. the chase apparently started after the driver filed to yield and look at that. yeah, right into a police cruiser there. well, the search continues in new york's hudson river for the ninth and final victim of saturday's collision between a small plane and a tourist helicopter. divers found the body of the eighth victim yesterday but weren't able to dislodge it from the plane's wreckage. officials hope to raise the aircraft which is 60 feet underwater, and they hope to do that later this afternoon. the wreckage of the helicopter was lifted from the river sunday nearly intact. you know, the ntsb is investigating here. we're hearing more about what 47 passengers went through after being stuck on a grounded plane all night long. friday's flight from houston to minneapolis was diverted to rochester, minnesota, because of bad weather. well, it landed around midnight
2:06 pm
local time. the passengers weren't able to deplane until 6:00 a.m. saturday. one passenger told our sister network cnn the ordeal got progressively worse. >> each hour the bathroom odors god worse, the odors of the babies got worse, the air got staler. i think people got more tired. i think people were very hungry. they had no food whatsoever, and i had made a connecting flight, for example, and had not eaten for 15 hours. so i think the combination of thirst and hunger and not able to sleep because the babies were crying, i just think there was a deterioration that took place throughout the flight in terms of people's emotional stability. >> continental airlines is apologizing and offering refunds to passengers. express jet which ran the flight said passengers could not deplane but security screeners had gone off duty. the airport says they could have
2:07 pm

2:10 pm
gas mileage. poppy harlow is in new york with a number that a lot of people probably cannot believe i'm thinking, poppy. >> you know, when gm told me this on the phone last night, we couldn't release the information this morning, but 230 miles per gallon city driving for the volt. we are not joking. gm has been working with the epa to measure the volt's fuel economy. the epa has still to confirm that number, but we're talking about miles per gallon here. the figure for highway driving, that hasn't been calculated yet, but the ceo, fritz henderson says he's confident the highway number will also, christi, be in the triple digits. can you believe it? >> no. which i'm thinking a lot of viewers are thinking the same thing. 230 miles per gallon. where does that number come from? >> first of all, this car works differently than other cars. it's a whole equation to get to this number. let's compare it to the prius. that's a hybrid. it gets 50 miles per gallon, but ultimately all of the energy to power that car comes from
2:11 pm
burning gasoline. the volt, on the other hand, can go 40 miles off the bat without using a single drop of gasoline. after that the gas engine kicks in and so if you drive longer distances, you're not going to get that 230 miles per gallon. now, if you drive 80 miles straight, the volt, that fuel economy will be more like 100 miles per gallon. if you drive in the volt about 300 miles in a row, your fuel economy drops to about 62 miles per gallon, so it all depends how far you are going. >> but, okay, great economy aside, fuel economy, let's face it, we're in a recession. auto sales are pretty lousy. so is gm making a big bet on a car really at the end of the day people may not buy? >> you know, the company doesn't think so. the ceo said this is going to be a game changer. there are a lot of questions. one's affordability. the price tag will be in the high $30,000. also gm may have to sell it at a loss at first to bring customers in. also where do you charge it if

there he is, president obama holding a town hall meeting on health care right now in portsmouth, new hampshire. he's talking about how he wants to overhaul the system. polling shows americans who do have insurance are pretty skeptical of proposals to expand coverage to nearly 50 million uninsured people. >> we also want to make sure that everybody has some options so there's been talk about this public option. this is where a lot of the idea of government takeover of health care comes from. all we want to do is set up a set of options so that if you don't have health insurance or you're underinsured, you can have the same deal that members of congress have, which is they
2:31 pm
can look at a menu of options, we're calling it an exchange, but it's basically just a menu of different health care plans, and you will be able to select the one that suits your family best, and i do think that having a public option as part of that would keep the insurance companies honest. >> the president says he wants a plan that even covers people with pre-existing conditions, and he stressed his overhaul would not set up so-called death panels to rule on life sustaining care for sick senior citizens. the president says the provision would only authorize medicare to doctors for counseling patients about end of life care, hospice care, living wills, and other issues. who has card number one? if you want to stay in the hall, if you want to stay in the hall, we're not going to tolerate any demonstrations or any booing. so it's up to you. >> earlier in lebanon, pennsylvania, things got pretty tense at senator arlen specter's

2:40 pm
unlikely punk scene. this is getting a lot of clicks on cnn.com so reggie aqui will walk us through this. >> the name itself is pretty interesting. they call themselves the kominas. it means something like scoundrel or scumbag. so they have a punk name, but how muslim is muslim punk? well, apparently most of the themes in their music does pretty much follow religious notions at least. the lyrics are based on religious texts and practices, although most of it is kind of turning the practices on their head. they have an anti-homophobia song. they have another one, and i will stress, it's supposed to be satirical, it's entitled suicide bomb the gap. if you're wondering what it sounds like, wonder no more. this is called sharia law in the usa. ♪
2:41 pm
now the origins of this are pretty unusual. it comes from a 2003 novel. so that novel was a fictional account of a muslim punk scene. these folks read the fictional account and then essentially made it real. they say they're doing this because they want to show people there's a broad spectrum of what it means to be american and muslim. the basie i bassist for the ban you have to throw it in people's faces and give them a different way to think about stuff. you can go to cnn.com. it's called "squgeneration isla" >> really intriguing. >> yeah. >> i know some people who have kids that have peanut allergies, and they're frightening. they can be life or death in

many cases. one of the most dangerous places to go is a ballpark normally. >> well, yeah, because of the peanuts. they are constantly served everywhere in the ballpark, yeah. and here is an example of a team that is really going out of its what i to try to invite these families who wouldn't ordinarily be able to enjoy one of life's simple pleasures, to go to a baseball field. what they did was they scrubbed down and they power washed the park. this is the minor league beam barons. that way it would be peanut-free. of course, they weren't selling peanuts at the stands that day. this is a feature that we have on the website, cnn.com, today that highlights a 9-year-old named kyle who has a very serious allergy to peanuts. information, he has to carry around one of the epi pens which is that drug that is able to kind of save someone's life if they encounter the allergy that they are a part of. the team after they scrubbed the stadium, as i mentioned, made sure that these kids were going
2:43 pm
to be safe. kyle went there. experts say older kids like kyle are unlikely to actually -- to have a reaction in the open air, but younger kids are, and now they say they had such a good time, they may go back to another game, a regular baseball game and see if things work out okay. another interesting feature. you can check on more of that at cnnhealth.com, christi. >> that's awesome. i hope they are able to make it back. good to see you, reggie. eunice kennedy shriver, i don't know if you heard this news yet, abobut she passed awa this morning. she was the sister of john f. kennedy and founded the special olympics. her family was by her side at a massachusetts hospital. she was 88 years old. she was a pioneer really who worked tirelessly for social and scientific advances that have changed the lives of millions. this is the statement from governor arnold schwarzenegger who says, changed the lives of millions of developmentally disabled people all over the

high drama. pitch drama over health care reform. president obama holds a forum today just hours after the heated exchanges between voters and democratic senator arlen inspector. presidents join the kennedy family in grieving eunice shriver's passing. remembering the woman behind the special olympics. take your mate for better or worse, but do most new brides still take their husband's name? your views on a revealing poll. hi, everybody. i'm chuck roberts on a tuesday. welcome. president obama held a town hall meeting on health care today in new hampshire. he highlighted how he wants to overhaul the system and how that may affect people who already have health insurance through
3:01 pm
their employer. deputy political director paul steinhauser has been covering this. he joins us live now in washington. no big outbursts in new hampshire today. >> reporter: you're right, chuck. a mostly supportive crowd listening to the president talk about health care reform. and actually what's in the proposal. he's pushing. there were tough questions by people who weren't crazy about what the president is proposing, and the president answered and fielded a bunch of those. no outbursts like we've seen with other lawmakers. new hampshire has a high percentage of people who currently have health insurance compared to the national average. he talked about misconceptions out there, including medicaid. take a listen. >> another myth that we've been hearing about is this notion that somehow we're going to be cutting your medicare benefits. we are not. the aarp would not be endorsing a bill if it was undermining
3:02 pm
medicare. i just want seniors to be clear about this. >> i understand he went on the defensive on other issues? >> reporter: he did other one issue getting a lot of play. that's youth in asia. we heard sarah palin on her facebook page say there would be death panels if the president's proposals are passed into law. that's got a lot of people talking. in truth, it's really looking at a law that exists in 2007 medicare law that calls for end of life planning acts. and all 50 states have those as well. it's something that is also in a similar form in one of the house bills being proposed in health care reform. take a listen to the president. >> reporter: the intention of the members of congress was to give people more information so they could handle issues of end of life care when they're ready. it wasn't forcing anybody to do anything. this is i guess where the rumor came from. the irony is that actually one of the chief sponsors of this
3:03 pm
bill originally was a republican, then house member, now senator, from georgia who very sensibly thought this would expand people's options somehow it's gotten spun into this idea. >> more later this week on montana and maybe colorado as well, chuck. >> what were the ground rules today. >> there were tough questions there. people who didn't like parts of the plan. but, again, no outbursts like we've seen elsewhere. >> referring to that, paul, thank you very much. let's get to an outburst from pennsylvania. >> and -- and -- and -- you want to be led out of here?
3:04 pm
you're welcome to go. now wait a minute. >> it got a little physical. earlier today, this is in lebanon, pennsylvania. that's arlen specter's town hall meeting on health care. the republican turned democrat faced heated questions about the plan to overall health care. some got so angry they almost came to blows. specter had to intervene. most of the crowd was vocal and opposed to government-run health insurance. >> i don't believe this is just about health care it's not about t.a.r.p. it's not about left and right. this is about the systematic dismantling of this country. i'm only 35 years old. you have awakened sleeping giants. we are tired of this. this is why everybody in this room is so ticked off. i don't want this country turning into russia, turning into a socialized country. my question for you is -- [ applause ]

care plan. you will not be waiting in any lines. this is not about putting the government in charge of your health insurance. i don't believe anyone should be in charge of your health insurance decision but you and your doctor. >> kritdcritics say the preside wrong. >> the status quo is unacceptable. for patients, doctors, and the entire system it's unacceptable. what we believe. what i believe is we need a patient centered system. not a government-centered system. but a patient-centered system. and a public option, a public plan, will inevitably skew the playing field so that tens of millions if not over 100 million americans will be forced from their personal private health insurance under the government plan. >> do you really believe that? >> it's happened in every other instance. let me give you an example. >> sure. >> the medicare part b program is a public option. iz has a 97 pblgt market share. crowds everybody else out of the market so that everybody ends up

it's common knowledge that doctors believe breast-feeding your baby is best. research also suggests it may have a life saving benefit for mom, too. melissa long explains in this health majority minute. mothers transfer anti-bodies to the babies, helping infants building immunities for sicknesses like the common cold to potentially fatal diseases. that's why they recommend mothers feed breast milk exclusively for the first six months. now nursing may also reduce the risk of certain mothers getting a deadly disease. breast cancer. a new study in the archives says breast-feeding for at least
3:40 pm
three months can cut the risk of breast cancer by 59% for nursing mother who is have a family history of the disease. researchers followed more than 60,000 women for nine years. 1% were diagnosed with breast cancer. nursing didn't affect the odds for women without the disease, it greatly affected the women with a sister, a mother, or daughter with breast cancer. a big deal considering how commonly breast cancer runs in families. the american cancer society says 20% of 30% of women have a relative with breast cancer, too. for today's health minute, i'm melissa long. yesterday we brought you the fewal attempt to save some beached whales at hollywood beach florida in broward county. rescuers could not save the mother. the calf couldn't survive on its own in the wild or cabtivity. it had to be euthanized. an i-reporter was right there as all this played out.

3:42 pm
>> that was the incredible thing about this. not the typical gawking at car accident mentality going on. everyone was so entranced. okay, the mother has passed away. and we just -- it was just like assumed they're going to pick up the baby and take it to seaworld or something. it was just seeming that was what was going to go on. to hear that the baby had passed away, that the calf passed away and had to be intentionally put down out of the humanitarian reason, it justed like a real negative way for all this drama to end. i stood there for a while just assuming it was really going to have a positive uplifting ending. and it really was a letdown. >> great job. your first i-report. you got ununder your belt. thanks. good job. we really appreciate it. if you have pictures of video, breaking news or cool stories where you are, go to ireport.com.

3:48 pm
city. they have been working on trying to measure the economy. they still have to confirm the numbers but the figures for highway driving haven't been calculated yet. fritz henderson says he is confident that the highway reading in terms of miles per gallon will be in the high triple digits. right now, boasts numbers like that one. >> how do they come up with the number? >> it's a great question. a special calculation according to gm as they've worked with the epa. let's compare it to a prius hybrid that gets 50 miles to the gallon. all of the energy for the car comes for burning gasoline. the volts will run 40 miles without using any gasoline at all. after that you've got a gas engine that kicks in to power the battery which then in turn powers the car. if you're going longer distances than the 40 miles you're not going to get the 230 miles per gallon.
3:49 pm
if you drive 80 miles in a row on the volt the fuel economy will fall to about 100 miles per gallon. if you go 300 miles. fuel economy is going to fall to 60 miles per hour. it depends on how far you're going and the calculation changes for there. >> it's a cool looking car, too. fuel economy aside, we are in a recession. are they making a big bet on a car that a lot of people may not buy? >> they're getting a lot of press. the ceo thinks this is going to be a game changer. what about the affordability. the price tag in the high 30,000s. like toyota with the prius and sell it at a loss to attract folks to the showroom. where do you charge if you don't have a home with a garage. if you live in the city. where are you going to charge these overnight? we asked people on facebook what they think. a comment from david. i would rather support our boys in detroit than the saudis or
3:50 pm
venezuelans. also a comment from chinmay. no way. no reason to buy american just for the sake of chuck? >> poppy, great. enjoyed it, thanks very much. a lot of the business news up to the minute right there at cnn money dotcom. let's check wall street. they're extending their woes for another day. banking sector is taking a big hit todays, as the federal reserve begins a two-day policy meeting. most analysts expect the fed will hold the key interest rate steady. there's the big board numbers for you. dow off 73 points to 29264 with about ten minuteses left in the trading day. a florida woman claims she was duped by an ad on craigslist and it looks like she's not alone. janet schullty said she was hired by a man to take care of his mentally disabled brother. for months she bottle-fed him and even changed his diaper. turns out the man isn't disabled
3:51 pm
and placed the online ad himself. police say no crime was committed and now there's nothing she can do but warn others to stay away. >> he would basically sit on the couch and watch spongebob most of the day. play video games with the kid. he talked in a whispery baby voice all the time. was always really apologetic. >> i changed his diaper plenty of times. >> because i consented to changing his diapers, there's nothing they can do to prosecute. >> schullty and her husband grew suspiciouses after two months and little of the promised money. american women are more independent than ever but they're pretty traditional when it comes to marriage. "usa today" published a study that finds 70% of americans think it's beneficial for a woman to take her spouse's last name. researchers say younger women are just as likely or even more likely to change their names than baby boomers. 800 people were surveyed. a denver coffee shop is offering free java all the time. >> it doesn't cost anything, it's free.

high drama over health care reform. president obama holds his own town hall meeting just hours after heated exchanges between some voters and democratic senator arlen specter. you may take him or her for better or for worse, but do most new brides still take their husband's name? your views on a revealing poll. and presidents both current and former join the kennedy family in grieving eunice kennedy shriver's passing. remembering the woman behind the special olympics. welcome to hln "news and views," i'm richelle carey. thanks for your time. the president is firing back at critics of his position to reform health care. he tackled that at a town hall
4:01 pm
meeting in new hampshire. americans who have insurance are skeptical of proposals to expand coverage to nearly 50 million uninsured people. obama tried to reassure them their situation does not have to change. >> right now, insurance companies are rationing care. they are basically telling you what's covered and what's not. they're telling you if, you know, we'll cover this drug, but we won't cover that drug. you can have this procedure or you can't have that procedure. so why is it that people would sit -- prefer having insurance companies make those decisions, rather than medical experts and doctors, figuring out what are good deals for care and providing that information to you as a consumer and your doctor so you can make this decision? the president also stressed his overhaul would not set up those so-called death panels to rule on life-sustaining care for
4:02 pm
sick senior citizens. he said the provision would only authorize medicare to pay doctors for counseling patients about end of life care, about hospice care, living wills, and other issues like that. >> can i see a show of hands of the people in this room believe we have the right to share our views are our elected officials? okay. take that to nancy pelosi. >> all right, continuing the town hall beat, that's a town hall meeting hosted today by senator arlen specter in lebanon, pennsylvania. the republican-turned-democrat faced some really heated questions about president obama's push to overhaul health care. most of the crowd very vocal about their opposition to government-run health insurance. some of the people got so angry they almost came to blows. things also got a little unruly at a town hall meeting in jefferson college in hillsboro, mississippi. that meeting was hosted by senator clarence mccaskill. take a look at this. >> hey! hey!
4:03 pm
okay. ma'am -- okay. everybody sit down. everybody sit down. >> clearly in missouri. i apologize for that. the incident started with two women who arrived late, brought signs to the meeting, okay that is against the college's rules. and an argument then broke out between one woman and the man in the bleachers. you can see the senator really tried to calm the situation down. many americans simply can't wait until a health care reform bill is passed to get treatment. a free health clinic is offering some of them an option. a group that brings free medical care to remote areas around the world is setting up shop this week in los angeles. so they do this around the world, ted, and they take los angeles, because clearly they see a need, i guess?
4:04 pm
>> reporter: yeah, well they weren't sure what to expect. and boy, what they found was a lot of people showed up. we're at the forum in los angeles where the lakers used to play basketball here. they've converted this stadium into a medical center where you can look at it here, this woman is getting her vision checked. they not only check your vision here, they'll grind new glasses. you can see people waiting in line, 650 people are going to be treated today alone. and this is going on for seven days here at the forum. it's not just vision, either. there's basic medical and a lot of dental work. one of the guys that's been working with the dental side of things is dr. roger fieldman, and doctor, you've seen a lot of patients today. give us a sense of who is coming out here. >> patients are coming out with tremendous amount of knees. the patients we're seeing have multiple problems. and the heartbreaking thing is that you have a patient in your care, and you want to take care of all their needs. but you can't. because, there's so many patients waiting. so you can just do one or two of the most important things that
4:05 pm
they need, and you have to let them go. >> what does this say about the american system? that's coming out to help out for free, or is it also sort of a window into the worst case scenario where people really are going without and waiting for an opportunity like this, which doesn't come around? >> i think people are going without. all i can say is there's a lot of need. i don't know what i can say about the american system. but there's a lot of need out there, and it's not getting taken care of. >> were you surprised how many people were here today? >> we were. we were setting up yesterday, and feeling like, as if when you give a birth day party, maybe nobody will show up. when i got here at 5:00 in the morning i was astounded by the traffic around the forum. and subsequently learned that by 4:00 in the morning, all the numbers had been given out. there's no more room for anybody. >> and they were turning people away earlier today, richelle. we're going -- we're talking about teeth cleaning all the way through root canals here in terms of the things that you're taking care of. give us a sense of what people have neglected? what's the worst-case scenario?
4:06 pm
>> we've seen multiple infected teeth. in fact on a diabetic patient i saw this morning. this sim pacting their diabetes and obviously their whole health having all this infection in their mouth chronically. >> richelle, the sound of the dental drills, horrifying to most people, but obviously a welcome sound here for these folks that have not had dental or medical care for some time. they've come out here to los angeles. all of this is volunteers. all the doctors volunteering and the medical supplies donated. wonderful organization that now, instead of just hitting the rural areas, they're hitting the cities. it's the first urban area, and most likely the first of many stops from here on out. >> i'm thinking that, ted, because if a city like los angeles has such a need i'm sure there's so many other cities across the country that have the same kind of need, if not more. so i'm sure they're planning to make more stops. >> yeah. and we were talking to the director. he said that, you know, he gets pleas from cities across the
4:07 pm
country. one of the things they've had problems with. you noticed there were some empty chairs. they have trouble recruiting doctors in specific areas. so what they want to do is bring doctors from across the country into different cities, if they have the notice and they have the ability to move doctors between states they'd be fine. but only the state of tennessee will allow it. even though it's nonprofit. even though they're allowing these doctors to donate their time, the states will not let them. california says no to a waiver in this case, bureaucracy, again, strangling the health care, even when they're trying to donate their time and resources, they simply can't, because of the red tape involved. and the competing interests. it's pathetic when you talk with these people, what those competing interests could be. and you know, we don't want to take anybody out here, but it really is disgusting when you think about the fact that there could be more people getting help and there are people being turned away. >> so they want to help but in some cases they can't. wow. that's really sad. >> yeah. >> ted, thank you for shedding

american women are more independent than ever, but they're pretty traditional when it comes to marriage. "usa today" published a new study that finds 70% of americans think its beneficial for a woman to take her spouse's last name. researchers say younger women are just as likely, even more likely, to change their name than baby boomers. about 800 people participated in this survey. so, we have been taking your views on this story. rhonda is calling us from arkansas. rhonda, what do you think about taking your spouse's last name? >> caller: i believe the woman should take her husband's last name, because they are becoming a family. and i do believe that it's only fair to their children that they may have in the future. and the question is why even get married if you don't want to act as a unit? because i've always, and my belief is that marriage is becoming as one. >> okay, let me put you on the

spot here, rhonda. if it's becoming as one, how about taking the wife's last name? how about that? >> caller: you know, i think that's fine. but i think down the line, there's going to be some, you know, there's going to be some problems. i live in a small town, and i believe that, you know, you know, the kids can taunt and say why does your mom take your father's last name or why didn't you take your father's last name. you know, i just believe that, you know, it's almost like they could be an outcast. i think that there's nothing wrong with it. but i just believe that that is going to cause some trouble. >> rhonda, thank you. >> caller: with the children. >> you're thinking a little more traditional might be the way to go. thank you for your phone call. thanks a lot for putting you on the spot like that. let's read some posts i put on my facebook page. search for richelle carey hln on niceback and you can get in some crazy discussions we have on the page. allison wrote --

is a federal subsidy program who helps homeowners going through a rough time. borrowers can get mortgages restructured the same day, and some, some of them can cut their payments in half. to qualify, the homeowners had to go through budget counseling. the event is taking place at the georgia world conference center. it's hot out there, too. out of the starting gate today, never really recovered. with the latest on cash for clunkers, do tell, alison. >> sure, hi, michelle. investors remained cautious for a second day in a row. the hesitation comes ahead of the federal reserve's statement tomorrow about the direction of the economy. the fed began its two-day meeting this afternoon, and key bench mark lending rate is currently near zero. it's been at that level since december, and is expected to stay there come wednesday. today's economic report shows worker productivity rose at an annual rate of 6.4% in the second quarter. and that's much better than
4:21 pm
expected. and economists say it could lead to more hiring when production picks up. so let's take a look at the numbers from today. the dow industrials fell 96 points ending at 9241. the nasdaq composite and s&p both fell more than 1%. meantime, interest in the cash for clunkers programs may be waning. edmunds.com reports that interest peaked on july 29th, and activity since then declined by 15%. and analysts for the automotive website said consumers initially were in a rush to take advantage of it before funding ran out. but now that the extra money has been approved, there's no longer than urgency to trade in that clunker. maybe people are shopping around more. what do you think? >> i think you're probably right. absolutely. thank you, alison. can you imagine being stuck for hours in a roller coaster just 80 feet high? it happened to riders on the invertigo in santa clara, california. the coaster stalled near its highest point yesterday. crews brought people down in buckets one at a time in 90 degree heat. nobody was hurt.

president obama, firing back at critics on his initiative to reform health care in this country. in his own town hall meeting in portsmouth, new hampshire. polling shows americans who have insurance are skeptical of proposals to expand coverage to nearly 50 million uninsured people. the president tries to reassure them any change put into place would be better than the status quo. >> for all the scare tactics out there, what is truly scary, what is truly risky, is if we do nothing. if we let this moment pass, if we keep the system the way it is right now, we will continue to see 14,000 americans lose their health insurance every day.
4:31 pm
your premium will continue to skyrocket. they have gone up three times faster than your wages, and they will keep on going up. our deficit will continue to grow, because medicare and medicaid are on an unsustainable path. >> the president stressed his overhaul would not set up those death panels you may have heard about. the death panels to rule on life-sustaining care for sick senior citizens. the president says the provision would only authorize medicare to pay doctors for counseling patients end of life care, hospice care, living wills and other issues like that. >> who has card number one? if you want to stay in the hall, if you want to stay in the hall, we're not going to tolerate any demonstrations or any booing. so it's up to you. >> okay. trying to lay down the law there. that's earlier today in lebanon, pennsylvania. senator arlen specter's town hall meeting on health care, got a little volatile at moments.

and republicans turned democrat faced some heated questions about the president's plan to overhaul health care. some people got pretty angry at times. almost came to blows. and specter had to step in and kind of calm them down. most of the crowd was very vocal about their opposition to government-run health insurance. >> i reviewed 3,200 the best i could. to me it's obviously written with the assumption that government has the right to control our lives from prebirth to death. for that reason it's not worth considering, it's not worth modifying, it's not worth amending. it needs to be dumped totally. >> we want the same kind of care for everybody on a matter of choice. if you like the plan you have at the present time, you can keep it. >> specter went on to say that he would not vote for a bill that adds to the deficit.
