5:43 am
walk road they just pass. >> i just don't know what do, stop or keep going. >> there are four intersections in assistant an clara that have these lights now. san jose and san francisco have them as well. they are cheaper than the traditional traffic signal. >> all right. a question in our morning, could you consider voting for a salds tax increase if it meant you would help caltrain cover its operating costs? that's what's before legislatures roit now. a new bill is moving through sacramento. it allow them to place a 1 eighth cent tax on right now caltrain draws money from all three of those, but it's on a voluntary contribution basis from all three of those counties. that tax measure would had a regular fupding stream to the system. >> 5:43, the president says i wants more money in the senate's new healthcare reform bill. >> it's not clear the president has seen the version of the senate's bill. >> that's true. several people were tasked with
5:44 am
writing the bill say they haven't seen it but that all changes today. senators are expected to bring a draft of the bill to light. we don't know what's in it but logically it will have to include huge spending cuts to medicaid. senators need to make spending cuts in order to clear the way for later tax cuts under the reconciliation rules. the bill, as we understand it, has been carefully crafted to please as many senators as possible, with you that means it's fate is tenuous. it would just take a couple of senators to change their mind and the sbil debill is dead whi certainly one of the reasons no one's seen it yet. a number of healthcare providers ansd companies are worried about it enough they sent a letter to mitch mcconnell, the ama and aarp have spoken out against the house version as well. remember on the campaign trail donald trump promised there would be no cuts, none whatsoever to medicaid. in an interview with "60

minutes" trump called for universal healthcare. he was in iowa wednesday rallying supporters and talking about the wall. >> and we're thinking of something that's unique. we're talking about the southern border. lots of sun, lots of heat. we're thinking about building the wall adds a solar wall so it creates energy and pays for it self.
