7:02 am
the fiscal cliff is just 14 hours ai wa. there's no deal yet, but members of congress are heading back to capitol hill. first, breaking news on the condition of secretary of state hillary clinton. >> she's in a new york city hospital this morning being treated for a blood clot. doctors say it's related to a concussion that's kept her out of the office for the past three weeks. margaret brennan is in washington with the latest. margaret good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. secretary clinton is taking anti-coagulant to thin out the blood clot. doctors will monitor her for at least the next 48 hours. >> a warm welcome to the secretary of state. >> reporter: secretary of state hillary clinton was admitted to new york presbyterian hospital on sunday after doctors discovered a blood clot during what was termed a follow-up exam to check on her recovery from a recent concussion. >> thank you very much. how are you? >> reporter: clinton's health scare began after she contracted a stomach illness following a
7:03 am
whirl wind trip through europe. that virus led to extreme dehydration, which caused her to faint and sustain a concussion. according to doctors at george washington university hospital and mt. kisko medical center, she's been recuperating at home since early december. secretary clinton also suffered a blood clot in her knee when she was first lady. in her autobiography, she said that doctors attribute it to her nonstop flying. now 65 years old clinton's air travel has only increased. illness has sidelined clinton during the final weeks of her term as secretary of state, causing her to cancel a december 20th appearance at congressional hearings into the attack on the benghazi consulate and the announcement of senator john kerry's nomination to succeed her as secretary of state. >> he has a deep respect for the men and women of the state department. >> reporter: clinton's last public appearance was december 7th in belfast, northern
7:04 am
ireland. she spoke then about her upcoming retirement and said she looked forward to having time to relax and think about things besides public life. in a statement release the last night, secretary clinton's spokesperson said her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion, and will determine if any further action is required. when asked whether secretary clinton is still able to work her spokesperson replied the secretary of state is the secretary of state. >> margaret brennan, thank you. medical correspondent dr. jon lapook is here. he is affiliated with new york presbyterian hospital where secretary clinton is being treated, but you are not involved in her treatment. >> that's right. >> john, thank you so much. let me ask you, how serious do you think this is they're keeping the secretary in the hospital for at least 48 hours? >> well, that depends on the answers to a lot of questions that we don't know. i am affiliated with columbia. i haven't spoken to any of the
7:05 am
doctors who are taking care of the secretary. but here are some of the things that are running through my head. it's unusual for somebody who's had a blow to the head to get blood thinners. the reason is when somebody falls and hits their head you're worried about bleeding into the skull, into the brain, like natasha richardson had. so the last thing you would want to do is thin their blood. so trying to figure out what could have happened here. she had some sort of concussion two to three weeks ago she fell and hit her head. at that point i'm sure they did some kind of brain imaging, a c.a.t. scan for mri to the head. at that point she must have had no bleeding or so little they were able to observe her outside. in the last few days she had maybe symptoms or routine c.a.t. scan or routine mri, and they saw a clot. this clot would have to be inside the brain tissue in one of the blood vessels. it's important to supplying the brain with nutrition. we're not talking about one of the bleeding that natasha richardson had underneath the
7:06 am
skull. so at that point, there's reason to give anti-coagulation blood thinner would be to prevent another clot from forming if you think she's at increased risk. the thing that would give you an increased risk of bleeding would be, i'd say -- again, i don't know her case -- an irregular heartbeat like ate ril fibrillation or something that would make it an increased likelihood of having a blood clot. the last thing you would do though, is give a blood thinner because you're afraid of causing bleeding. so they're in a position where they have to decide, i want to give a blood thinner because i want to prevent further clotting, but also i don't want to give a blood thinner because i'm afraid if she's had bleeding going on she's hit her head. normally, you would not give blood thinners for three months following somebody hitting her head. >> one of the other things i saw in the statement from the spokesperson was her doctors will assess her situation, including other issues
7:07 am
associated with her concussion. i think that's what has a lot of people very concerned about the secretary's health this morning. what other issue is she suffering from? we've not seen her in public since late november. >> that's one of the cryptic lines in the press release that made me wonder again, is that another issue of putting at increased risk of having another clot again. i'm thinking they're maybe between a rock and a hard place where they want to thin her blood to prevent a further clot. on the other hand, they're afraid to give her blood thinners because that could increase bleeding in somebody who smacked her head just recently. as we mentioned, congress goes back to work this morning trying to avoid the fiscal cliff. if there's no agreement by midnight and we go over the cliff, economists predict america will go back into a recession. >> here's what will happen starting tomorrow. income taxes would increase $2,400 a year for families with an annual income of $50,000 to
7:08 am
$75,000. their social security taxes would also go up on average $1,000 a year. and some 2 million jobless americans stand to lose their fed caleral unemployment benefits. in all, the congressional budget office says going over the cliff could cost the country more than 3 million jobs in 2013. we begin our coverage with nancy cordes on capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the senate is set to reconvene in about an hour. we're told negotiations progressed well last night, that the vice president is now heavily involved and that the two sides have moved significantly towards one another on the top issue, which is tax cuts. but the big question is whether they can make it the rest of the way before tonight's deadline. senators filled the halls sunday hoping they'd have a deal to vote on, but just before 6:00, the senate leader sent them home. >> there's still significant distance between the two sides but negotiations continue. >> reporter: those talks hit a snag sunday when democrats missed a self-imposed deadline
7:09 am
to deliver a counterproposal to republican leader mitch mcconnell. >> it's now 2:00 p.m. and we've yet to receive a response to our good faith offer. >> democratic leader harry reid said the gulf over taxes was still too wide, and he indicated the white house might be tying his hands. >> i've had a number of conversations with the president, and at this stage, we're not able to make a counteroffer. >> reporter: so senator mcconnell called the vice president, who he served with in the senate for 24 years. the two men spoke several times sunday. >> i want everyone to know i'm willing to get this done, but i need a dance partner. >> reporter: democrats want to let the bush-era tax cuts expire for all household incomes over $250,000 a year. republicans would rather set the cutoff at around $500,000 or keep the tax cuts in place for everyone. the two sides are also at odds over the estate tax rate which
7:10 am
currently stands at 35% but is set to revert to 55%. even if senate leaders do strike a deal and pass a bill today, it would still need to go up for a vote in the house, but at this point, many members are just hoping their leaders can come up with something if only to show that congress is competent. >> i don't think anyone here is going to benefit from a calamity happening in this country's economy. >> reporter: some republicans are frustrated that this deal if it happens, won't include major spending cuts. so many of them accept that time is just running short and that it's not possible to get a lot of guts into this last-minute deal. for their part, democrats appear to have acknowledged that those spending cuts will likely become a bargaining chip in the next big fight over whether to raise the debt ceiling. that's a fight congress is going to have in january and february. >> nancy cordes thank you. more than $100 billion in
7:11 am
required spending cuts would also kick in if there's no deal. at the white house, major garrett says the obama administration is getting ready for those across the board cuts. major, what exactly is the white house doing to prepare? >> reporter: good morning, norah and anthony. the obama administration is in the final stages of delivering layoff notices it will deliver to federal agencies across the government, this to comply with across the board spending cuts 6% to 7% that are required in the so-called fiscal cliff. agencies will decide which employees to lay off and when. as part of these preparations, the administration also has notices it will soon deliver to delay or cancel federal government contracts. as for negotiations themselves it is a bit of a team effort here at the white house. president obama is dealing directly and spoke frequently sunday with the senate majority leader harry reid while vice president joe biden spoke frequently sunday with republican leader in the senate mitch mcconnell. mcconnell and biden get along much better than mcconnell does
7:12 am
with president obama. in the last 24 hours, the administration has given ground on raising threshold for income tax rates and estate tax rates, but also demanded much more in new government spending the republicans are comfortable with. it's that division between spending and taxes that continues to divide both sides, and that is the one thing that may prevent a deal from being achieved in the final hours as we get nearer to the fiscal cliff. >> major garrett, thank you. senator is live on capitol hill. >> thanks for having me. >> if there's a deal today, why would you vote to extend tax cuts if there are no new spending cuts? >> that's the exact thing. the real problem is the spending. if you want to raise taxes -- and the president promised in the campaign he wanted to do that -- it's to pay down on the deficit. there's no evidence of any of that. that's a major sticking point. the democrats are divided on tax
7:13 am
rates, on the death tax, on taxes on small business and the republicans are holding firm that you actually have to deal with the number one problem in our nation which is the spending our debt. >> senator, the senate is reconvening this morning. how close are we actually to some kind of a deal here? >> i'm hoping that we get an arrangement and an agreement because the american people deserve certainty. what we ought to do is put a bill on the senate floor and let people offer amendments and vote on them. we shouldn't be here waiting for people to cut deals on back rooms. the american people ought to be able to watch the discussion and the debate and how people vote on various issues the death tax, tax rates, and how the money is going to be used because that's the big question. how are they going to use the money? >> senator, we heard president obama say in an interview that if congress can't get anything done and we go over the fiscal cliff, that plan "d" essentially is to have another vote on january 4th when the new congress comes in, and that would just be a straight up or
7:14 am
down vote on extending tax cuts for middle class families making up to $250,000 a year. do you think that's what happens? >> i'm hoping that we resolve this today to give the american people some certainty. the president doesn't seem too eager to actually get involved and find solutions to deal with the number one problem facing our country. if you do what the president just proposed and raise taxes on those folks, it helps fund the government for seven days. it doesn't deal with our fundamental spending problem in this country. bottom line is the president is the only one with a pen who can sign into law something and he ought to be very involved with making sure that he gets something that he will sign that will pass both a republican controlled house and a democrat controlled senate. >> senator, i mean there's been a lot of finger pointing and we've been hearing this for some time now and i think a lot of people are looking for some kind of a deal and some kind of agreement down there. there are, in fact, 535 of you down there.
7:15 am
senator john manchin, the democrat of west virginia said something has gone wrong when the biggest threat to our american economy is the american congress. we know there's a recession many loo looming here if this doesn't get done. why isn't it getting done? >> and i agree with senator manchin. i would say to harry reid, bring a bill to the floor of the senate and let's start voting. quit trying to cut deals behind closed doors. get to the floor of the senate. let the american people see the discussion. but as your opening report said this morning on this show it seems like the president is handcuffing harry reid from even bringing a bill to the floor now. the president is, i believe, slowing down the process, not helping. >> senator barrasso, thanks. >> thanks so much for having me. bad weather in the northwest may be to blame for a tour bus accident sunday that killed nine passengers and injured at least 26 others.
7:16 am
as lee cowan reports, the bus driver lost control near pendleton, oregon and went down an embankment. >> reporter: a steel guard rail along a rural part of oregon's interstate 84 did little to keep the tour bus and its roughly 40 passengers from going over the 85-foot drop. dozens of rescuers followed the scar in the ravine to find the bus. just to get to the people that were dead and dying was enormous. >> there was snow on the ground which made it pretty treacherous. so we used a haul system to get the patients from the crash site which was down in a ravine back up to the highway so they could be transported to medical facilities. >> reporter: the most seriously hurt were airlifted to hospitals as far away as portland and boise, idaho. the bus was owned by mijou
7:17 am
travel and headed from las vegas to vancouver, canada but the weather was hardly optimal. >> we're not blaming road conditions. we know that there was some snow and ice on area roads, but the investigation is just beginning. >> reporter: the driver of the bus was injured but survived. that testimony, more than anyone's will be able to tell investigators just what went wrong. for "cbs this morning," i'm lee cowan in los angeles. >> time now to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. britain's guardian says a 23-year-old woman who died after being gang raped on a bus in india has been cremated. the rape has sparked widespread outrage and protests across india. u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon is calling on the indian government to take action to protect women. the houston chronicle says former president george h.w. bush is out of intensive care and resting in a regular room at the methodist hospital. he is being treated for a
7:18 am
persistent fever. his condition improved over the weekend. the moscow times reports five people were killed when a russian airliner crashed as it tried to land in moscow. a dash cam video shows how the plane overshot the runway went through a fence, and onto a highway. there were just eight crew members on board. "usa today" says lawmakers on capitol hill reached a deal on sunday to extend the farm bill for another year. without an agreement, dairy subsidies would have risen to 1949 levels and the price of milk could have doubled. and "the new york post" said kim kardashian and kanye west are expecting their first child. at his concert in atlantic city he told the crowd now you're having my baby and told them to congratulate his baby mom. they have been dating for nearly a year. anthony? you were surprised by the news this morning. >> yeah, af little shocked. what can i say? that one took me by surprise. yu expecting

the new york giants had a special guest on sunday. they invited about 200 students from newtown, connecticut, and their parents to watch the giants beat philadelphia 42-7. welcome back to "cbs this morning." that is a nice story. >> it is. giants still didn't make the playoffs though. >> yeah. but the redskins did. >> we won't go there. survivors of the newtown massacre are expected to return to classes this week in a different school, and as terrell brown reports, an attorney for one of the children is ready to go to court. >> reporter: two weeks after a gunman opened fire inside sandy hook elementary a new haven lawyer is asking permission to sue the state of connecticut for
7:30 am
$100 million. >> i'm saying for a fact that the state didn't do enough to provide for their safety. >> reporter: attorney irving pinsky represents the child, a 6-year-old who survived. she's traumatized of what she saw and heard in the school. >> the whole thing came down on the intercom, the screaming, the cursing, the bang bang bang and her friends are dead. >> reporter: pinsky filed the claim last week claiming that the state failed to protect the child and as a result she suffered trauma and injury. in all 20 children died and six staffers. staffers credited with trying to save lives. on pinsky's facebook page hundreds have expressed outrage. sickening. simply sickening.
7:31 am
another wrote should be disbarred and jailed for abuse of the system and trauma caused to the parents whose children actually died. pinsky insists the lawsuit is not about money. >> hello. we didn't do enough. this should have never happened. >> reporter: he claims his only mission is making schools safer. for "cbs this morning," terrell brown, new york. and cbs news analyst jack brown is here. >> good to be here. a lot of legal experts are looking at this and saying that the chances of success are not so good. here's why real quickly so that you understand. we have what's called sovereign immunity in this country and that essentially means you can't sue governmental entities or private individuals of entities. it goes back to the king can do no harm. we don't have a king but the governments don't have the ability do everything for
7:32 am
everybody. the way our system has evolved is only in limited circumstances can you successfully sua governmental entity. and what you have to show in this situation is what happened in newtown was reasonably foreseeable. the incident that was reasonably foreseeable and they didn't take reasonable steps to protect against. that's a pretty tough standard. many would say that would be a hard hill to klein. >> so that's the league part of it and then there's the optics of this. $100 million. the shooting was just on december 14th. is this unseemly? >> there are two questions. the first is does the lawyer have a right do this and second is it the right thing to do now. as for the first question yes, if he truly believes he can prove a case here he has to by law make this application. connecticut is interesting. you have to essentially apply, get permission to sue the government for things. you have a year to do that. so you have a lot of time to do
7:33 am
that. so does he have a right do it? yeah. is it the right thing to do? a lot of people as we've heard are looking at this saying people who gave their lives to save these children are part of the governmental entity here. is this the right thing to be doing now. >> and he says he's representing a 6-year-old who survived the attack but has been subject to emotional pain and suffering, right? >> exactly. and, you know if you were going to see lawsuits filed, i think most people would expect you'd see them filed on behalf of those whose children died. that's another fact. we don't want to diminish what the survivors are going go through for the rest of their lives here just a horrendous episode but think that's another factor we're seeing people comment about in terms of is it the right thing to do now. >> as you point out, jack there's a lot of outrage. ultimate lay that outrage doesn't affect anything legally. >> good point. it's out there. but ultimately connecticut has a
7:34 am
commissioner of claims who will make this decision whether it's equitable to move forward and if it does it would then be a trial before a judge and you would like to believe whatever concern they have as to propriety of timing they will decide the case base pond the morning."

7:41 am
any more games with her. i'm sure she doesn't want to watch with myself either. >> watching your team from a distance what did you think? better than expected? >> i basically told them, i said, what you guys have done am i shocked? you know i'm not because this is what we talked about from day one. you guys just went out and lived it and did it. we've become a really tight family in a short amount of time. >> cheerleaders one or two would agree to have their heads shaved in honor of coach chuck pagano. >> tell us about the story about the light on in your office. >> i found out what bruce had done. >> i asked if we could leave the light on in his office permanently until he comes back and we're going to do that. >> only if you're cut from the cloth that bruce is cut from and the type of man that he is would you come up with something like that. >> when you got back into your office and the first time you

drug contamination is blamed for meningitis outbreak while drug shortages are now less of a problem. we'll look at all the top health stories of 2012. that's next on "cbs this morning."
7:44 am
7:45 am
i've always kept my eye on her... but with so much health care noise, i didn't always watch out for myself. with unitedhealthcare, i get personalized information and rewards for addressing my health risks. but she's still going to give me a heart attack. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare.
7:46 am
sometimes what we suffer from is bigger than we think ... like the flu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting.
7:47 am
the flu comes on fast, so ask your doctor about tamiflu. prescription for flu. we saw some promising breakthroughs in the world of medicine this year and some disturbing moments as well. dr. jon lapook is back with look at this year's top health stories. we've got some interesting ones here. first the meningitis outbreak. what a story. >> what a story. who would have expected that 370 people who went in for back pain ended up with meningitis. 250 people ended one an abscess at the site of the infection and 39 people died. it turned out that the company who was making the stair yoid necc, new england compounding
7:48 am
center one of the compounding centers making drug there was all sorts of infection in there. three vials with it. >> on the bright side another big story had to do with dying diagnoseing alzheimer's. >> yeah. the good news is we're much better at diagnosing alzheimer's. there's a new scan that you can see that gooey protein that's a telltale sign. you can see it years in advance. it turns out -- this is a big breakthrough. it turns out the changes in the brain, they start 10, 20 years before you get symptoms, so a lot of the medicines -- none of the medicines are working too well. maybe we're giving it too late. imagine having five heart attacks and you say, give them lipitor. maybe if we can give it earlier. >> and you can recognize it
7:49 am
earlier. >> one of the big stories is drug shortages. know that's a story you're passionate about. >> yeah. since 2005 there's been a tripling of the number of drug shortages and this was the perfect example -- >> and cancer drug shortages. >> cancer drug shortages. we had babies beautiful little alaina couldn't get the cancer drug. it turns out a lot of these drugs have become generic and there's a lot of complicated reasons why there was a shortage but it involves a happy story. there was a bill that was before congress for 15 months bipartisan support, the president supported it, everybody wanted it no specialty group didn't want it and yet it took 15 months before it was passed. it was a bill to give the fda more power to regulate the shortage. now, the good news is that since it was passed in the last six months there's been a doubling of the notification that the fda gets of the shortages.
7:50 am
when they get the notification they can import drugs from abroad, they can call manufacturers and increase the amount of supply here in the united states. there's been a 44% drop this year compared to last in the number of drug shortages. still there are a hundred on the shortage list. >> finally from your perspective, what's the biggest health story of the year. >> for me it's this obesity crisis. you know, two thirds of americans are either obese or overweight. >> yeah. >> and we have this big question about the food police. is it possible to regulate behavior and we see in new york city to lower this crisis. and one of the things that bloomberg has been doing has been to, you know after he banned smoking or his administration banned smoking and trans fat, they said why don't we ban the garbage that's being sold in schools. a big study found out over the summer that it works. >> it works. it's been quite a year for the britain's royals.
