7:01 am
the end of obamacare. house republicans claim victory on health care. >> house republicans just launched a giant stink bomb into the united states state. >> they've been whining for seven years about the affordable care act. now let them defend what they did today. >> we're seeing the individual exchange under obamacare implode. >> if we do nothing people will lose their health care. >> i want to thank the president of the united states for his steadfast leadership. >> how am i doing? am i doing okay? i'm president. hey, i'm president. can you believe it? >> right. i don't know. the storm that caused historic flooding in parts of the central united states is moving east. >> officials will be in the savannah, georgia, area, trying to confirm whether it with was a tornado that left behind all this damage. >> just sounded like a roar. like a freight train. >> roller coaster thrill turns into fear in oklahoma city. >> why doesn't it ever get stuck
7:02 am
like closer to the bottom? >> just in time, officers quickly springing into action and pulling a man from a burning townhouse in las vegas. all that. >> olynyk. oubre goes after him. we have an all-out scrum at the verizon scrum. >> a battle for the ages, america. >> the sheep being bullied constantly by the cat. >> oh! >> don't mess with the sheep. >> and all that matters. >> i shouldn't say this to my friend from australia because you have better health care than we do. >> they have universal health -- >> i know. >> i thought you would -- >> oh, okay, the president has just said it. >> on "cbs this morning." >> remember, laughter is the best medicine until yesterday when a jury convicted a woman who laughed at jeff sessions. we now live in a world where laughing at jeff sessions is a federal offense. so for your own safety, please, do not laugh at how much jeff sessions looked like my writer mike's brands new baby.
7:03 am
you're all going to jail. this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. let's go places. spk sbc captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump and his republican allies are celebrating a capitol hill break through. the house narrowly passed a gop plan to rollback obamacare. but it still needs a vote in the senate where democrats vow to stop it and republicans are ready to change it. >> the house vote is the president's first important victory in congress and he invited republican lawmakers to celebrate with him in the white house rose garden. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with what's next. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. this was a miraculous resurrection for a bill that was all but dead a month and a half ago. it passed with one vote to spare and now heads over to the senate where a 12-member working group has already been set up to modify it.
7:04 am
>> this is great plan. i actually think it will get even better. >> reporter: president trump celebrated his victory with the house republicans who delivered it. >> the yeas 217 the nay 213. the bill is passed. >> reporter: the health care bill dismantles parts of obamacare and reworks others. >> we can put this collapsing law behind us, end this failed experiment. >> reporter: the gop plan is an experiment itself. it replaces obamacare's insurance subsidies with more modest tax credits for low and middle-income americans and cuts medicaid funding and allows states to opt out of obamacare's protections for people with preexisting conditions. wyoming republican liz cheney said the goal is to give states more flexibility. >> you feel confident with the way the bill handles people with preexisting conditions? >> i feel very confident about it. we made sure nobody can be denied coverage because of preexisting conditions. >> reporter: they can't be defied but they can be charged more.
7:05 am
if they let their coverage lapse. states would be required to set up high risk pools to help pay the premiums. >> these high risk pools are a sham. they are not adequately funded. >> reporter: democrats argued republicans would be punished at the ball lot box. >> but you have every provision of this bill tattooed on your forehead. you will glow in the dark on this one. >> reporter: when the bill passed they sang this on the floor. ♪ hey hey good-bye >> reporter: the bill now goes to the senate where republicans say they won't rush it like the house did. >> the best example of good government. >> reporter: tennessee senator lamar alexander is one of 12 who will take the house bill and turn it into something the senate can accept. >> we will work together carefully to write our own bill. >> reporter: they will not get any help from senate democrats. >> we will make sure that trump care doesn't pass the senate and can't hurt the american people.
7:06 am
>> reporter: but it may not matter because republicans are going to try to use a process in the senate called reconciliation, which would allow them to pass this bill without any democratic support. though gayle, as we saw in the house, even getting all of their own members on board can be a challenge. >> yep. thank you very much, nancy. president trump told john dickerson on "face the nation" last week that his plan will protect people with preexisting conditions. >> the american medical association says -- >> we actually have a -- >> make coverage completely unaffordable for people we have -- forget about unaffordable. what's unaffordable is obamacare, john. >> so i'm not hearing you, mr. president, say there's a guarantee of preexisting conditions. >> we have a clause that guarantees. >> now, under the house bill states can allow insurers to charge higher premiums to cover preexisting conditions. states would have to set up high risk pools to help those people pay for insurance. the ama claims high risk pools cause americans with preexisting conditions to be stuck in
7:07 am
second-class health care coverage. if they're able to obtain coverage at all. >> dan senor is a senior adviser to mitt romney and paul ryan in the 2012 presidential campaign. welcome. >> gom. >> what chance does this bill have. >> majority leader mcconnell has quietly days before -- he was in pretty close contact with speaker ryan once it became clear this bill in the house was going to pass he already started to assemble a group of about a dozen republican senators who represent all the key committees, across the political spectrum within the republican party from susan collins on the left to mike lee on the right. and they got to work and i think they are -- if the house republicans hope that the senate republicans are going to pick up where the house republicans left off, i think that is not going to happen. i think they're starting from scratch. i think in the end, the senate bill will look like the house bill but there are big differences. i think the senate will pass something and i think there will be enormous pressure on the house republicans to pass the senate version. >> the senate version.
7:08 am
>> does the gop have momentum, do you think now, and how important is momentum? some people this morning are describing it as trump's mission accomplished moment? >> i was mixed on that rose garden -- >> celebration? >> celebration. rally. >> why? >> yesterday. but i will say when i talked to, you know, different members, particularly in the leadership, they say look, we need to keep this momentum going. for seven years, republicans have -- republican politicians have been campaigning against obamacare. it was the centerpiece of four elections 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, they've been telling their voters for seven years we are going to repeal obamacare. now republicans control the entire federal government. they want to keep telling their own members, how are you going to look at your voters in the eyes and say when we had the shot to do this we didn't do this. with each step they think the pressure intensifies. so once it passes the house, they want to make a big deal that it passed the house. one step, one milestone passed.
7:09 am
now it's up to you, the senate, and they want to keep this momentum going and that's what a lot of what yesterday's optics were about. >> legislating isn't easy and you have to doll out favors to get things passed. there is a lot in this house bill, even though most members who voted for it didn't read it, of the 23 republicans snigts districts won by hillary clinton, 14 voted for this repeal and replace. are they in danger in the midterm elections? >> it's too early to tell. i would make two points. one, what many of them say is, look, i've got to worry about democrats, independents rebelling against us on what we did here but i have to worry about demoralizing republican voters. turning out your own voters is as important as anything. our republican voters think we're incompetent and can't get anything done when we control the entire legislative branch and executive branch, we're doomed. i think that is a big factor here. but it is an unknown. >> dan senor always good to have you here, happy cinco de mayo.
7:10 am
>> thank you. >> that's your holiday? >> no. no. >> okay. >> but you'll celebrate. >> i will celebrate it. >> okay. >> mention full-service celebrator. >> got it. after the rose garden event the president flew to new york city for the first time since his inauguration. >> go back to your [ inaudible ] the people have the power. >> protesters there to greet him. the president came to new york to meet australian prime minister malcolm turnbull. they clashed on the telephone a few months ago. they spoke on the ""uss intrepid"" a aircraft that is now a museum. the president headed to national golf club in bedminster, new jersey, for a long weekend. margaret brennan is nearby. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. well, the president is waking up at his private club in new jersey after a busy thursday tapped off by an evening spent mending fences with australia. one of america's closest military and intelligence sharing partners. >> our brave warriors have
7:11 am
fought shoulder to shoulder in every major conflict. >> reporter: at black tie dinner aboard a decommissioned aircraft carrier president trump celebrated the 75th anniversary of a key world war ii victory byes u.s. and australian forces. >> americans have had no better friends than the australians. >> reporter: the first face-to-face meeting with australian prime minister malcolm turnbull was also a chance to reset their relationship after a tense february phone call. >> we had a great call. you guys exaggerated the call. that was a big exaggeration. we had a great call. we're not babies. >> reporter: during that initial conversation, president trump was angered to learn of an obama era deal to take in more than 1200 refugees from australia. he publicly blasted the agreement as dumb. last month, vice president pence assured turnbull that the u.s. who stand by the deal. >> make it clear we'll honor the agreement. it doesn't mean we admire the
7:12 am
agreement. >> reporter: earlier thursday mr. trump declared support for religious tolerance at the signing of a related executive order. >> we will never ever stand for religious discrimination. never ever. >> reporter: but in march, the federal courts suspended the president's travel ban on six muslim majority nations citing, quote, a purpose to disfavor a particular religion. the courts pointed to these comments from the campaign. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: notably the president has chosen saudi arabia, home to two of islam's holiest sites as his first stop this month and then it's on to israel and, gayle, he'll get to meet the pope at the vatican. >> all right. a lot of people want to meet the pope. thank you very much, margaret. the tsa is warning the american trucking industry about the possibility of terrorists using big rigs and busses as weapons. vehicle terror attacks in europe
7:13 am
have killed an injured hundreds of people in the past three years. jeff pegues is covering the concerns here in the u.s. good morning. >> good morning. the warning was really a reminder of what federal officials have been concerned about for some time now. terrorist organizations have been calling on followers to turn large trucks or vehicles in general into deadly weapons. this truck attack carried out on the streets of nice, france, last summer, killing 86 people and injuring over 400, is exactly what u.s. officials are trying to prevent. in a six-page report sent to the trucking and bussing industry, the tsa issued new indicators and counter measures to help prevent terrorists from using commercial vehicles to inflict large-scale damage. among the suggestions, report suspicious rentals that coincide on dates of outdoor gatherings and reinforce strong vehicle security. the ramming attacks have increased in frequency.

12 people were killed in berlin when a truck slammed into an outdoor market in december. >> additional units in the area of 19th and college we have several pedestrians struck by a vehicle. >> reporter: in this country, 11 people were injured after a man inspired by isis drove his car into a crowded ohio state university. according to the department of homeland security, since 2014, terrorists have carried out 17 known vehicle ramming attacks around the world. resulting in 173 deaths, and 667 injuries. the tsa says terrorists will likely continue to encourage these types of vehicle attacks because the reality is, they are easy to plan, and have the potential to inflict a massive amount of casualties. norah? >> jeff, thank you. a lawyer representing two pittsburgh high school students plans to sue the school and police for what they came is a pattern of abuse targeting black students. video of one incident shows a

7:18 am
so points in the poll. and her chances weren't helped by another intervention, barack obama. >> i am supporting emmanuel macron to lead you forward. >> reporter: but le pen is not giving up. in an election cycle that produced the donald trump victory in the united states, this is the age, supporters like colleen hope, of unlikely upsets. >> because trump is exactly the same thing, maybe six months ago, and everybody say that hill harry would win and she didn't. so, there's still a chance. >> reporter: le pen has been running a campaign right out of the donald trump playbook. attacking macron at a heated and sometimes ugly debate this week. suggesting he had squirrelled away money in an offshore account. she admitted she had no evidence. and a furious macron has launched a legal complaint, fake news he called it.
7:19 am
the eggs that were thrown at marine le pen yesterday, missed. the poll predictions for sunday's vote may be more on the mark. in fact, the gap in the polls has become so large that emmanuel macron's main enemy might be complaceysy. marine le pen voters will come out on sunday. macron has to convince his voters not to stay home. norah? >> mark phillips in paris, thank you so much. the department of justice is investigating uber's use of software to avoid government officials in areas where the service was not approved. ahead, the latest in the series of scandals facing the ride ,,,,

equipment could do the trick. first, if an elite runner wants to break the record, he has to choose a race with the right course. one which also conforms to the rules of the sports governing body. >> if we had a course that had the maximum downhill dropping about 130 feet, that saves about 30 seconds. >> he also needs to outwit the wind. they think they have found the answer -- drafting. >> if we could get four runners to cooperate and take turns at the front breaking the wind, that also could save about three minutes according to our calculations. >> time to change places. right behind him, peter. >> this idea of drafting in running which obviously can help but we don't see it. why not? >> running is usually everybody on their open. we say like, all right, guys, just work together here. you probably need some incentive for the runners to make that happen. >> finally, it all comes down to the shoe. >> if we can make a shoe lighter
8:35 am
by a hundred grams we save 1% in energy. >> how much time is that usually? >> at the top level marathoners, saving 1% is one minute. >> but the shoe's weight isn't the only factor. the amount of cushioning in the sole determines how much energy or spring the runner gets back with each stride. two of the biggest names in the sport, adidas and nike, have built brand-new shoes specifically to break the two hour marathon milestone. >> the two companies are taking somewhat different approaches. the new nike shoe is light but it's not the lightest shoe. but it has the best cushioning and energy return. the adidas show they have -- they seem to have kept the same amount of energy return as they had in the older model but made it a hundred grams lighter. >> the boulder team tested nike's entry in the two hour milestone race. they're really light. i mean, this is ridiculous. its findings gave the shoe the name. >> give them a try.
8:36 am
>> the vapor fly 4%. i can feel spring. >> this shoe saves about 4% of energy. if a person was say running a ten minute mile, that's about 24 seconds per mile. >> that's me. >> at the elite level, if we had someone who can run in two hours and four minutes, we think this shoe can take off enough time to get them under two. >> what's the big deal about a sub two marathon? >> this is a bit like a moonshot. what appeals to me is that other people are saying no, it's impossible. i'd like to prove them wrong. >> at this weekend's world record attempt in italy, they're utilizing the new shoe and the drafting formation. it is important to point out that all three of the pro marathoners making this attempt has elite personal best times that are within minutes of the world record. awesome. >> awesome. i need those energy return shoes whatever it is. >> see, you run.
8:37 am
you would feel the moment that you put the shoe on. >> good for norah to know. thank you. nba legend charles barkley is the life of the conversation on the show.

♪ sir charles barkley had a legitimate career in the nba for 16 seen seasons. barkley has a new tnt documentary series discussing race relations, it is called "american race." in one episode he speaks with alt-right founder richard spencer and civil rights attorney gerald griggs. >> we don't want anything different in life than you do. >> are you sure about that? you just what white people want? >> yes. >> yes. >> i want a good family. i want a good job. i want my daughter to live in a world where she's like she doesn't have to worry about discrimination. >> charles barkley joins us now. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> is this early for you to get up in the morning? >> yes, i'm not a morning person. >> we're glad you're here. >> well, thank you.
8:42 am
nothing you can do early in the morning that you can't do later in the day. >> that's not true, charlie. >> somebody said nothing happens good after 10:00. >> at night. >> just fun. >> let's talk about this series, the important series. and you're engaged by this you seem. >> it was the hardest thing i have ever had done in my life. meeting with these families. obviously richard spencer. meeting with mothers whose kids had been killed by the police. meeting with muslim people and undocumented immigrants. they were very difficult corporati conversations, but they needed to be had. >> i saw this in baltimore, you don't understand why people riot and tear up their own stuff. race is so tricky and difficult to talk about because nobody wants to talk about race. i'm so glad you're doing it. >> well, that's the biggest problem. we never talk about race until something bad happens. then everybody is mad. >> right.
8:43 am
>> so what i want to do is i want people to watch and sit around and say, does he have a point, does she have a point, do they have a point? but nobody -- everybody is so afraid. you shouldn't be afraid to talk about it. >> they got mad at you in baltimore when it seemed like you were defending the police. >> well -- >> took a lot of heat there. >> i had no problem with that. first of all, i always defended the police, but i don't think they're always right. we need the police, especially in the black community. that doesn't mean they don't make mistakes or they did things wrong. we have to find a way to hold police accountable when they do things right. but it was important for me -- first of all, it was a painful night, number one. >> i can see that. >> but it felt -- after it was over i bet you that lady had never had never an opportunity to express what she felt to the news media. the news media wouldn't spend time with her. she was angry at me. and she was angry because her son got killed. >> but you point out the community makes mistakes too. >> i have gotten in trouble
8:44 am
because i think we as black people, we have to do better ourselves. black on black crime. it's a travesty. we can't continue calling on the cops, when things go bad, get mad at the cops. we have to police ourselves better. >> what did you learn? >> i learned there's amazing people out there. i met a pastor in atlanta who works with undocumented immigrants, kids. he has an after school program because those people are amazing, working hard all the time. so he started an after school program where the kids go. i met with a muslim family. >> what did you learn about -- those people are interesting and powerful. what did you learn how we can take the right step forward in terms of race? >> well, number one, the only thing you can do is talk about and i wanted to put a face. like the mother in baltimore who lost her son, we see it in a little blurb in the news for five or seven seconds and anyone
8:45 am
on to the next story. i wanted to give a real person. undocumented immigrant, they're real people. same thing with the muslims in texas. we throw those words around. we talk about police brutality but we don't see the victims' face. we talk about undocumented immigrants but we don't know any of them. >> yeah. you're showing a human side. >> yes. >> there was a big story in the news with adam jones who was called the "n" word while on the happen to yo? did you experience thiengs leak that why you're on the court. snow e was more disappointed in the people around people saying the race iftd stuck because out of human decency. if someone says something about
8:46 am
someone who's jewish or whatever, i'm going to say something. the witnesses sitting there letting people scream slurs at adam, they should have screened or policed that better. >> good to cow good to see you. a reminder you can see more on our apples itunes and pod kaftd. up next. you're watching "cbs this morning." ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

this is a live look out towards the valero refinery.. where a flaring. 15 good morning. it's 8:55 am i'm michelle griego. we're taking a live look out towards the valero refinery where a power outage is causing flaring. this is a live look from chopper 5. police advice people in the area to "shelter in place" and keep doors and windows closed in benicia. authorities have suggested a "shelter in place" in several elementary schools. they say students who stay home will not be marked absent today. this weekend, bart will close the tracks between the fruitvale and lake merritt stations for maintenance. bart will run free bus bridges. a public hearing is scheduled today for a proposed parking project in the sunset district. if approved, a stretch of road would get striped bike lanes
8:56 am
and perpendicular parking lots. stay with us; weather and traffic in just a moment. ,,,,,,,,,,
8:57 am
giving people options based on their budget is pretty edgy... kind of like this look. i'm calling it the "name your price tool" phase. whatever. good morning. time now is 8:57. and we have a traffic update for you. due to the power outage at the refinery in benicia, 680
8:58 am
northbound 680 diverted to westbound 780 and all southbound traffic along 680 diverted to lake herman. you can see those sensors really starting to light up the screen. we have slow speeds in the area so expect delays. at the bay bridge toll plaza, traffic is much better. smooth ride from the maze into downtown. roberta? >> what has not been beneficial with that flare-up are the westerly winds that have been consistent 12 to 15 miles per hour in the benicia areas. these winds will continue today west 10 to 20 with stronger gusts. gray skies and low ceiling light drizzle at sfo delays one hour and five minutes on some arriving flights. we are in the 50s right now but again another breezy start to your day. temperatures later today high 50s and low 60s from the coast around the bay. we'll have sunshine just about everywhere except the seashore. low 70s away from the body of water. saturday and sunday, let's call it partly cloudy. 50s beaches and low 70s inland. ,,,,,,,,
