7:40 am
washington scene, it is a repeat of what actually happened in the house when ryan couldn't get it going on the first time out. ryan carefully backed up and promised everybody everything and would give anybody anything for a vote because he knew he wouldn't have to ultimately pay. and mcardle is trying to do the same thing. the differences, it is personal with mcardle. he dislikes barack obama so intensely that he is willing to fork over every consideration in order to continuously pursue his permanent embarrassment of obama. >> in california, we have single-payer healthcare which was pursed -- push through and sailed to the senate. now it says in the assembly. the democrat plan going nowhere. >> even members of the assembly that voted for it will say, it was really deficient. especially when it discusses the major piece of funding.
7:41 am
i will tell you that i have talked to a couple members of the assembly. they both say that this isn't over yet. that they still -- think they can go into a room somewhere and get this figured out. >> people have been trying and focusing on single pay for years. and it started out with maybe one or two people. it has been growing in terms of the number of people participating. believe me, it is never going to get beyond the consideration placed. because 400 billion dollars is too much money to be devoted to any single thing. and no one wishes to say, i'm recommending it, here is what it costs and here is how we should pay it. if they did that, it would be a more fair argument. and it wouldn't sail through any house, any place no matter what the health plan is. >> we have been talking about single-payer for years.
7:42 am
and we hear again and again that a lot of people like the idea of single-payer but when it comes to actually paying for it, they don't want to be the one to pay for it. they are such strong supporters now that there are death threats against people. >> anthony rendon is the one who put a hold on the single-payer plan for now. we don't know how to pay for it or a lot of things about it. so his family is getting death threats essentially as a result of this move which was really to help members having to avoid taking that vote. and that it would essentially be endorsing a $400 billion plan. so rendon definitely paying the price for now -- at least for the latest failed attempt. >> i'm sure we will be talking about this for years. >> thank you. in the meantime, midair chaos.

housing could soon be arriving at a bart station near you. a bill to clear the way for more housing construction on bart-controlled land... passed through the state legislature this week. bart estimates it more affordable housing could soon be arriving at a b.a.r.t. station near you. a bill for more housing construction on b.a.r.t. -controlled land passed through the state legislature this week. b.a.r.t. estimates it could result in up to 20,000 new units including 7000 designated as affordable.
8:14 am
the bill now goes to the governor's desk. >> joining us to talk about all things b.a.r.t., we have the frontal director. thank you for being with us. you represent contra costa on the board of directors. as you go about speaking with people with concerns about b.a.r.t., what do they say about safety on b.a.r.t. these days. >> people are generally concerned. they are fearful about the stories that have come out about the recent attacks, the assaults -- they are concerned. >> we have the 22nd assault -- 40-60 teenagers. we have june 28, four teenagers. june 30s, 10-13 teenagers all -- iphone and cell phone robberies. you are saying that people are nervous. are they happy -- satisfied with the kind of information that b.a.r.t. is disclosing about these actions? >> i received a number of requests and comments from riders asking me to press for the release of the video of
8:15 am
these incidents. and the reason for that is, they want to see for themselves what is going on on the trains. they want to learn from that. and determine how they can protect themselves a little better. >> we heard that b.a.r.t. says it is because there are minors involved. and that is why they are not able to release the videos. is that your understanding? >> originally, the april attack, b.a.r.t. said because there were minors involved -- and in addition to that, the investigation, when something is under investigation, they are not required to release the video. i have learned that, in the april attack, there was a 19- year-old that was arrested and detained, who is not a minor. and so there would be a reason for the video of that person to be released. >> you would think -- so it
8:16 am
is not because they are minors. because one of them isn't. so what is it? >> i asked that question recently. i asked, why can't we release these videos? the answer was, initially, that -- well, normally cities don't release videos of these types of crimes . i said, yes, people are sort of trapped in this train for a while. and they have a right to see you at could potentially happen . the next answer was that the release of the videos would create a high level of racially insensitive commentary toward the district. and in addition, it would create a racial bias in the riders against minorities on the train. >> so they were saying that -- i assume the implication is that these crimes or some of
8:17 am
them have been conducted by minorities so they don't want to release the footage because that would somehow cause a racial bias. >> right. >> so if it were a video showing white teenagers robbing someone, we would have the video by now? is that the implication? >> that is not a question i asked. but that might be a good question. >> what about the passengers? what about their rights -- to protect themselves and see you at is happening they would know if there is a place they should set or other ways to prevent this from happening? >> i think this goes back to priorities at b.a.r.t. it is something i often talk about on a wide variety of subjects. what is the priority of b.a.r.t. ? is it the safety of all passengers? is that a lesser priority than the racial bias
8:18 am
issue? >> we have just a few seconds left. i would love for you to tell the viewers who, if they are concerned one way or the other on this issue, what they should do to make their voices heard. >> you can go to b.a.r.t. .gov. there is a board of directors link there. people can reach not only their own director but they can reach all directors on bart .gov. you can write to us and tell us what you think. i, as a director, read those comments every single day. and i take those into consideration. there are things that b.a.r.t. can do too. that is increasing police presence and addressing the gateway crime. >> excellent. will have to get to that some other time. thank you for being with us this morning. debra allen, b.a.r.t. director. now let's get to julie with the forecast. we are looking outside at the golden gate bridge where we are socked in this morning. a marine layer here.
