7:00 am
in every dose of frontline plus. good morning america. breaking news right now. it's a deal. the last-minute scramble between the president and top lawmakers to stave off the debt crisis and save america's credit. >> it will allow us to avoid default. it will allow us to pay our bills. >> now, a race against time, to clear the final hurdle before tomorrow's deadline. global markets react with relief. is the last-minute agreement really taking us off the road to economic catastrophe? also breaking right now, a huge announcement about birth control that would affect millions of women. and could change how women visit the doctor's office for good. the wedding party so rambunctious for the queen's
7:01 am
granddaughter, that lasted all night long. was it the royals' most outrageous party ever? good morning from washington. and, robin, what a weekend here in the capital. it was filled with tense talks. all of those bitter speeches in public. and then all these long mysterious waits. until finally just before 9:00 last night, the president suddenly appeared in the white house briefing room to announce a deal. >> george, going right down to the wire like that. they could not have cut it any closer. and the markets are already breathing a sigh of relief at this early hour. in fact, our countdown clock is still ticking. this still has to come to a critical vote, george. >> the deal is still not finalized, robin. basically, here is the
7:02 am
framework. it will raise the debt limit through the election nap was the president's bottom and cut trillions in government spending over the next decade, which was the republicans' top priority. the leaders will meet with the rank and file members. they hope to vote today. passage still not certain. we'll tell you what the bottom line means for everyone at home. our debt crisis team has been reporting on this story all weekend. we begin with jon karl who's right here. you first this news on saturday night. >> reporter: the leaders now have the deal that's a big deal. it took the threat of economic catastrophe to make that deal. now, george, they've got to find the votes to pass it. and it won't be easy. >> have a seat. >> reporter: finally a deal. >> is this the deal that i would have preferred? no. nevertheless, ultimately the leaders of both parties have found their way toward compromise. >> reporter: it took the threat of economic catastrophe just two days away. but republican and democratic
7:03 am
leaders got a deal both of them liked. >> both parties gave more ground they wanted to. but that is the essence of compromise. >> the united states of america will not for the first time in our history default on its obligations. >> reporter: while all of that was happening, the man at the center of storm was on a conference call, trying to convince his fellow republicans to finally get onboard. telling them, quote, now, listen. this isn't the greatest deal in the world. but it shows how we've changed the terms of debate in this town. here's what the debt ceiling deal looks like. agreement on up to $1.2 trillion in spending cuts over ten years. a new special congressional committee to recommend additional deficit reduction of $1.5 trillion. if those conditions aren't met,
7:04 am
deep cuts are made, including medicare and defense. >> you must be pretty pleased with this? >> reporter: while the speaker of the house seemed to be please the sound began even before it rise. >> this isisatan sandwich, no question about it. >> reporter: yes, a satan sandwich. republicans didn't like it, either. >> it's not something that i could d pport. i'm certain it doesn't relieve us from the debt burden. >> reporter: now, it comes down to counting votes. as you know, there are 240 republicans in the house. but i'm told we could lose up to 100 of themes. 100 could vote no. 76 democrats to vote yes. >> that's a tough sell for the president. let's go to jake tapper at the white house. jake, a lot of grumbling over the groundwork of this. how does the president get out of this? >> reporter: first of all, it's
7:05 am
a pass out of the crisis. that's going to be the first priority, when he tries to rally democrats. second of all, he'll say that spending does need to be cut. this bill does so in a way that protects their priorities. and the third point he'll make, when it comes to the triggers, if the supercommittee does not arrive at $1.5 trillion in deficit reduction, he will argue that he protected medicare beneficiaries, all keeping with the democratic priorities. george? >> jake, the president says he's going to protect democratic proirties. and he exempted cuts. but this is a big number. so, it's going to have a big impact on just about everyone, right? >> reporter: that's right. and the way to achieve in the first round of spending cuts, between $900 billion and $1 trillion of deficit reduction, is by capping spending. it really will be left up to congress, george. >> jake, thanks very much.
7:06 am
now, let's go too bianna golodryga where the markets are reacting to all this. we've seen leading up to this weekend, six-straight days of decline in the dow. but the financial markets are pretty happy this morning. >> that's right, george. investors heard out of washington last night. the dow went sharply higher over of a global rally overnight. the worst week for the dow inn over a year. down over 500 points. this may be one hurdle we've come over, though. we have that big issue to look for. that is to see if we can see a possible ratings downgrade. >> that's what i want to ask you about. we're going to looking for the deal this morning. do we know if it h h the muscle to pass the ratings downgrade? >> they were looking at $4 trillion over the next ten years. we're nowhere near that right now. if this deal does go through, we could see a aa rating. >> okay, bianna. now, let's go to the white
7:07 am
house and white house senior adviser, david plouffe, for his bottom line on all this. thanks for joining us this morning, david. let's start off with the big question. do you have the votes to pass this? >> obviouslyly george, every member is going to have to make their own determination. we're confident that this deal will and should pass. it's one removed a cloud of uncertainty over the economy. wewee not going to have to repeat this episode again in five or six months. significant debt reduction on the front end. we're going to have a great debate in the fall around the country, about the debt reduction. the only way to reduce theebt in a smart way, is to make sure there's smart perform. and to closeup the tax loopholes. >> the speaker of the house is saying any tax increase is impossible in the next deal. what makes you leave that the house republicans that are been adamant about raising tax revenues is going to be more likely to do it today. >> we never reached a final deal. but there were tentative
7:08 am
agreements for $800 billion in revenue. and you've seen republican senators embrace a balanced packet. this is the debate. i think the american people made their voices clearly in this debate. they wanted compromise. they helped force it in the end. but there's no doubt. even as a majority of republicans support a balanced approach. so, we have to really force congress over the next few months here to try and do their job, to lead. and try to produce something that has got tax reform. if that doesn't happen, there is an enforcement mechanism. and there will be spending cuts. half come from defense and programs like children's health care, medicaid, and medicare n beneficiaries will be protected. >> paul krugman in "the new york times" said the president had an abject surrender. he said that obama surrendered last december, extending the tax
7:09 am
cuts. he surrendered in the spring. abject surrender? >> absolutely not. first of all, the tax deal back in december was important. think about where the economy would be today with all of the head winds we faced, if we didn't extend the payroll tax and business tax cuts. these are spending cuts that were identified largely on the front end, by the work of the president and vice president, for congressional leaders. they protect things like education, and medical research. this committee is going to be charged withthoing the next stage. but the enforcement mechanism, we wanted to do something that protected the most vulnerable. that's what the enforcement mechanism would do. >> don't you agree that washington just looks dismal through all this? i think the country has watched what's happened over the last couple of weeks and said, we're fed up with all of you. >> the president said lastight it was far too messy. monday night, when the president spoke to the country and again friday, he asked could the people of america lift their
7:10 am
voices and demand compromise. and capitol hill was overwhelmed by people calling and e-mailed. at the 11th hour, there was a compromise. but there's no doubt. hopefully moving forward here, people will lower their voices a little bit and seek compromise a little earlier. this is obviously a three-ring circus. something that was a spectacle. and hopefully doesn't get repeated anytime soon. >> david p puffe,, thank you vey much. george, as you know, front page news all across the country. i was struck by something they said in "usa today." it's like the fire department trucks are arriving after the home's roof has been in flames. the real damage has been done. give us your bottom line on this. >> i think yououit it right there. the country, like i said with david plouffe, saying what i i going on in washington, d.c. the lowest approval rating is
7:11 am
about 40%. he's in a dead-heat with the top republicans for the 2012 race right now. congress has influenced approval ratings, as well. the country is looking at this saying, we want something different. you can seee a political earthquake before the next election. >> all right, george. thank you. now, for a dangerously close call for weekend "world news" anchor, david muir. he's on the ground in war-torn somalia, where thousands are fleeing the famine there. he's safe this morning. our entire crew is safe. he brings us a story of being trapped in a skirmish right on the front line. >> reporter: it was a dramatic firefight, in a country already dealing with the worse famine in a generation. we were there, as african soldiers were trying to get out
7:12 am
the al qaeda group in mogadishu. they have blocked the aid coming in to somalia. shunning western help. you can hear the gunfire, beyond this wall here. they asked not to turn the corner. they're exchanging fire with al shabaab as they try to move these extremists to the outskirts of the city. we were on convoy meant to protect aid route op in this city. the u.n. says this is the worst food emergency in the world. but it's clear, they have faced something else. a weak political government. they're trying to block the aid. >> yeah, they're trying to block the aid. >> reporter: as we pulled away, our convoy hit with gunfire, too. no one was hurt. e we just took a direct hit on this convoy. you're convinced that was al shabaab? just a short distance away, a reminder of the stakes here.
7:13 am
the children living in overflowing refugee camps. near those gun battles in the hills. david. david. children waiting for food and waiting for that gunfire to stop. for "good morning america," david muir, abc news, mogadishu, somalia. >> david will have much more tonight on "world news" with diane sawyer. now, to that major announcement breaking right now that will have a major impact on wowon's health care. and it's not without controversy, as you might imagine. for the first time, insurers will be required to make birth control free to women. sharyn alfonsi is here with the details. >> reporter: abc news has learned that today, the u.s. department of health and human services will announce sweeping, new guidelines intended to help all women have a chance to stop health problems before they start. here's how it works. starting on august 1st, 2012, all private insurance plans will be provided to women's
7:14 am
preventative services, without charging a co-pay or a deductible. >> half of women forgo preventive care because they can't afford it. and under the affordable care act, that out changes. >> reporter: what exactly? >> reporter: screenings for guestational diabetes. breast-feeding reports. and all fda-approved birth control methods, including emergency contraception, including the morning-after pill, will be included. >> congress includes these services, including contraception. family planning is something that can keep women healthy. and it was an important piece of today's announcement. >> reporter: even before today's official announcement, the idea of insurance completely covering birth control came under heavy fire from conserertives. >> many women who get pregnant are blasted out of their minds when they have sex and not going to use birth control, anyway.
7:15 am
>> if you can afford a $4 frappuccino at starbucks, you can pay for birth control. >> reporter: conservative groups argue that coming the morning after bill is equivalent of using federal dollars for abortions. >> that's not part of our law. today it's about keeping women and their babies healthy. >> reporter: the big question is, who's picking up the extra costs? white house advisers say it won't impact premiums. but ultimately, that's going to be up to the insurance companies. >> still, this is big news. >> reporter: big news. >> all right, sharyn. thanks so much. let's go back to george in washington. george? >> all right, robin. now to that startling image from the weekend. this caribbean airline skidded off a runway in guyana. as investigators try to figure out exactly what happened, the survivors are sharing their stories. abc's lisa stark has the story about how they made it off of that demolished jet alive. >> reporter: in this exclusive
7:16 am
video obtained by abc news, u.s. officials from the national transportation safety board photographed the mangled wreckage of the caribbean airlines flight. knoll elliot, who doctors say suffered the worst you'injuries the crash, was vested by trinidad's president of caribbean airlines. >> reporter: terrified passengers knew something was wrong. they started to applaud as the plane touched down. and that quickly turned into screams. >> there was a screech. i started calling on god, oh god, not this. not this. >> reporter: those onboard heard a loud bang as the boeing 737 barreled off the runway crashed in a fence and cracked in two. >> i told my friend, we're going to die. the plane doesn't have enough runway to stop. >> reporter: inside plane was a jumbled mess.
7:17 am
passengers scrambled out in pitch black. some through emergency exits that still worked. it was raining. >> we're calling paramedics. we're calling for anyone. firemen, nobody was around. >> reporter: when rescue crews finally arrived, they had only flashlights and the headlights from fire engines to guide them as they searched for anyone trapped inside. >> i just want to tell god, i know it could have been a lot worse. >> reporter: now the black boxes in the guyana crash will come back to the ntsb lab here for analysis. the 162 passengers and crew onboard this plane, truly had some luck on t tir side. there was no fire in the accident. and the plane stopped just short of a very deep ravine. >> let's go back to new york where josh elliott has the rest of the morning's headlines.
7:18 am
>> good morning, george. there is a deal in washington. but the economy remains troubled. major layoffs in the banking industry being blamed on that shaky economic. hsbc has just announced 30,000 job cuts. 10% of its global workforce. just last week, another financial giant, credit suisse, announced 2,000 job cuts. meanwhile, troops in syria are ramping up their bloody crackdown on pro-democracy protesters. been killed in the past 24 hours alone. president obama said that he's appalled by syria's use of violence against its own people. american hikers held in iran for more than two years, are expected to learn their fate by week's end. they appeared at a finin hearing on monday. they were charged with spying but say they crossed the border of iran and iraq by accident. finally, a true sign of the times. men are finally doing their share.
7:19 am
they're doing some housework. a new british study finds men these days spend nearly 2.5 hours this week on cooking, cleaning, and other household chores. it's an hour more thth the 1970s. two hours fewer than women, admittedly. but as with everything else, robin, it is a path away from crisis, towards compromise. you know what we're not doing, apparently, a number unchanged. laundry. we're bad at it. >> since i'm outnumbered with you and sam, i'm going to kick it over to sam. >> robin, i'm going to say that josh and i can sayayur floors have never been shinier. let's get to the boards. here goes that area of high pressure. the heat dome is back, by the way. 107 in dallas. there was a little break, but not a big one. 105 in phoenix. 93 in atlanta. take a look at the heat index. numbers that will be above 115 degrees this week. big heat.

coming up on 7:42 now and a stery that no one has been able to crack for almost 40 years. legendary hijacking that has taunted the fbi for decades. now the agency has finally picked up the trial of one of the most elusive fugitives, ever, josh elliott you have been following this. >> an aspect of sheer fun to it all. new clues today emerging about what really happened to criminal legend d.b. cooper the man at the heart of only unsolved hijacking case in american history. >> clever hijacker who given his name as d.b. cooper parachuted out of airliner and disappeared with $200,000 of the airline's money. >> reporter: over 40 years, news came that the fbi now has a credible lead in this case. according to an fbi spokesman
7:43 am
its most promising. that's all they say that has baffled law enforcement for decades. in 1971, a man calling himself d.b. cooper, threatened to blow an orient 207 if he didn't receive 200,000 ransom. after landing in seattle, he got his money and released most of his passengers and the plane took off again. then cooper jumped from the jet thousands of feet over the pacific southwest. despite a massive man hunt, cooper and the money vanished. it seems impossible now n these post-9/11 days of intensive airport security, but the '70s were something of the hey day of hijackings. with over 15. >> the fbi has announced the following identifications of the
7:44 am
hijackers. >> reporter: a man in a suit hijacks a plane and disappears. but popular culture wouldn't let him go. there he is in song. tv shows with plots. >> check him out right now. >> reporter: and characters baring his name. >> agent cooper. >> reporter: even a thee yatry call film. what makes the mystery even morr tantalizing are the clues that have been found over the years. cooper's body was never recovered. yet in 1980, a portion of the ransom money was found and in 2008 a parachute was also found buried in the dirt, 100 miles south of seattle. which meansor now, d.b. cooper or at least his considerable legend remains free.
7:45 am
