7:01 am
the secretary communeicated that. i don't think it could be any more clear. >> a major confrontation grows as egypt's president refuses to step down. >> mohamed morsi has until late they are morning to give in to the demands of anti-government protesters or face a military takeover. >> morsi is saying he's prepared to die to protect the legitimacy of the depp kraes.democracy. >> 200 people wounded. the arizona wildfires that took the lives of 19 firefighters is less than 10% contained right now. >> only one of the 20-member crew is still alive. >> ehe left his post based on protocol and he was moving it a new position. the obama administration has now said it it will delay by one year the employer mandate. >> the requirement that all employers with more than 50 employees provide coverage. homer bailey for the second time in his major league career has tossed a no-hitter. >> every dog has his day twice, i guess. in canada police call south

7:03 am
morning." an extraordinary story. we are watching fast-moving developments in egypt. president mohammed morsed morsi says he'll stay in office even if it costs him his life. the deadline is now upon us. neither side is backing down. the military is threatening to take over unless morsi finds a solution to the political turmoil. >> meanwhile, the crisis is pushing the cost of oil to its highest level in more than a year. egypt is one of america's most important arab allies. at the white house the senior administration official says president obama is not calling for early elections but does want morsi to listen to his critics. clarissa ward is now on the streets of cairo. she joins us by phone and, clarissa, what is it like there? >> reporter: well, good morning, norah and charlie. there are just hundreds of people pouring into tahrir square. they're getting ready for another day of pro-tests but, of course, today is particularly significant because people are desperately anxiously awaiting to see what will happen. will the military intervene?
7:04 am
will there be more political instability? will there be blood on the streets? >> those people you are talking to on the streets, what are they telling you that has to happen? >> reporter: the people here in tahrir square are absolutely adamant about what has to happen. president morsi, they say, has to step down. he has essentially done nothing to address the country's severe economic problems. there's been a breakdown of law and order here. you can hear some people setting off firecrackers in the background. and they also feel he has really sacked the government. all key positions have gone to his islamist muslim brotherhood. people say they are not going to leave the streets until president morsi leaves. >> of course at least 16 dead overnight, increasing violence. are you concerned about your own safety? >> reporter: one always has to be concerned about one's safety in such a volatile situation,
7:05 am
and there's no doubt that as a woman one has to be particularly careful. tahrir square has a real history of sexual assaults. we know our own colleague suffered a horrifying assault. but just in the last four days at least 90 women according to human rights watch have been assaulted in this square. so certainly every woman who is either protesting here or covering this story and, indeed all journalists and all people here are need to be very vigilant about their safety. >> clarissa if the army takes over 0 what will they do then? will they appoint a president or a presidential office or what? >> reporter: from what we've heard, they are planning to establish an independent temporary caretaker government made up of four civilians and one military representative and then they would plan to hold early elections. but the problem at this stage really is that the opposition doesn't happen under a leader who is poised to take over. >> clarissa ward thank you, from tahrir square. and a major setback for
7:06 am
president obama's signature issue, the health care law. a key provision is being delayedby a by a year.uires it requires companies with are than 50 more than 50 employees to now provide coverage or face fines. but that rule is now on hold until until 2015 after the midterm elections.tions. jan crawford is in washington. jan, good morning. jan, g >> reporter: well good morning, norah. morn good morning, charlie. this was one of the more controversial provisions in the whole massive health care law and the obama administration hasobama gotten an earful.ation small businesses were it. threatening layoffs to avoid having to comply with the provision. all of that raising concerns that health care law was going to hurt workers and the economy. the news came while the president was flying back from africa to washington.ack from a major concession in what is considered the president's signature achievement. [ bleep ] hosted with no fanfare on the wh white house website, the administration pushed back by one year the requirement that ck by on businesses with more than 50
7:07 am
workers provide health care coverage or pay fines of $2,000 for employees. for we have listened to your feedback and we are taking action. action. the decision marks a shift in shift the official line on health care with the president himself care stating recently -- it's >> i think it's important for us to recognize and acknowledge this is working the way it's supposed to. >> two pink and two yellow. >> reporter: but the concerns were were widespread. some sma some small business owners said they would lay off workers so they h they had less than the 50 e employees that brought them ught them- under the new law. even business owners who supporters health care reform were sounding the alarm.alarm. we talked earlier this year to to one of those business own 0ers whoho runs runs a bakery in california. >> we want to do the right thing.o it seems the whole plan was maybe hasteily put together. >> reporter: with next year's midterm elections looming, that kind of feedback troubled leading democrats who stake a ing lot of little capital on the law
7:08 am
like max >> i tell you, a huge train wreck coming down. you and i discuss this had many times and i don't see any any results yet. >> reporter: tuesday night republicans who remained re staunchly opposed to the law which passed without a single gop vote said the announcement was vindication. house speaker john boehner said s even the obama administration know knows the train wreck will only get worse. and and in another sign of trouble, on the white house is trying to get the nfl onboard to educate people in the upcoming fall about health care exchanges hoping to encourage participation. if this whole thing is going to work, the nfl said it wants but th nothing to do with this they political football. nothin charlie and norah? >> thank you, jan. also in washington, cbs news political director john dickerson. good morning. so what does this mean for john health care reform and what doess this it say about the politics of
7:09 am
health care? >> i think as a practical matter more than 90% of the companies that would have been affected provide insurance to their employees anyway. and also as part of the president's plan the medicaid pl provision and the individual health parts of the plan does go forward. the practical matter that's the situation. as a political matter, this is not good. it's for contributing to the feeling that the affordable care act is a jalopy they're trying to roll out of the driveway here as barely operational for the president. so that's not good. the white house made the decision, though, take the pain now before the fourth of july weekend rather than have all of these stories over the next year of companies that were laying off workers or having such a hard time implementing this. >> john in announcing this and >> i read through the comments of and the treasury department and the white house, they acknowledge that that they have heard the concerns by businesses. v it was vociferous and directed much at the white house. how much of this is to hurt th democrats in the midterm elections that they delay this until after people go to the
7:10 am
polls? >> as you point out, you lls? couldn't help but hear the concerns on this issue.oncerns on the problem for democrats running is that they are already weighed down by the feelings t people have about this bill and about the opposition from small bu business and from businesses of al all kinds. thoug and though this delay, again, in takes the story from being a chronic ailment as it gets implemented, it doesn't really red reduce the fact that in a lot of these states where democrats are are running, red states this law is now the unpopular unpopular. >> okay. so now the employer mandate has been delayed a year, you have to pay $2,000 for each employee if you don't give them health insurance. what about the individual mandate? that's still in effect, right? you would be penalized if you pen don't have insurance. >> it is still in effect and the obama administration is still trying hard to get people who want to buy insurance in the s private market to sign up for that. that's a whole other set of problems associated with this. are will congress try to take take another run at the individual the mandate? you might see that in the house,
7:11 am
republican-controlled house. in the senate democrats wouldn'tanything in let that come up. the question for republicans here is whether the public disapproval of this law is a little bit complicated. a lot of people don't like it.on't like some of those people who don't like it don't like it because it doesn't go far enough. so do they see this as a moment to try one more time to go at far this affordable care act? one the risk for them is people will them say you've tried this before. we want you to focus on other concerns. >> thank you, john. happy fourth. >> thanks, charlie. you, too. a bizarre are twist in the plan nsa leak scandal involved a plane carrying the president of he's b bolivia. he is back in the air but only after confusion and controversy. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. the bolivian ambassador to the u.n. called it no less than an act of aggression. their presidential plane n diverted to austria has left vienna after that unscheduled thought. it was thought edward snowden, however, remains grounded at a thought moscow airport. even holed up in a russian
