an issue right now, and to me that's become too much of an issue as to what our real job is. if we're more concentrating on the russians interfering with our elections as opposed to the russians interfering with our economy right now and us turning away from our real job of getting people back to work, seeing wages rise again, seeing families be able to be together >> but congressman, the russians attacked our elections, we need to respond to the russians, and we need to do the work you're talking about on the economy. we need to do both. we don't need to come here week after week after week and do nothing. senate republicans today rolled out a retooled healthcare plan. nancy cordes tells us it's already in critical condition. >> how do you feel about the bill, senator? >> reporter: the response from republican hold-outs... >> talk to folks at home... >> reporter: ...to their party's plan "b" was cautious at best. >> we'll read it over the weekend and come up with a decision and see if there is any
improvements. >> reporter: two republicans, moderate susan collins and conservative rand paul, quickly announced their opposition, leaving g.o.p. leaders one vote shy of defeat. do you think the new version is better than the old version? >> no, i think it's worse. the old version repealed most of the obamacare taxes. this repeals about half the obamacare taxes. >> reporter: the new bill reinstates those taxes to help pay for $45 billion in new opioid funding. but it does not reverse the first bill's deep cuts to medicaid. the big sticking point for moderates like ohio's rob portman. >> we're still working on ways to ensure that folks who are currently getting coverage under expanded medicaid have options. >> reporter: the only republican who went from no to yes today was ted cruz of texas, who got a provision inserted allowing insurers to offer low-cost, bare-bones plans. >> if next year, the year after, we have people back home who see their premiums drop 10%, 20%, 30%, that's a big win, and it's
a win for everyone. >> reporter: many republicans told us today they are withholding judgment until the congressional budget office releases its analysis early next week. they're a little gun-shy, anthony, after the c.b.o. projected that the first version would leave 22 million more americans uninsured. >> mason: nancy cordes at the capitol. thank you, nancy. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell's state is expected to be hard hit by the proposed cuts in medicaid. omar villafranca went to kentucky coal country. >> this one is for my immune system. >> reporter: every day kathy collins has to take 27 pills in her fight against the autoimmune disease lupus. >> my legs hurt. >> reporter: 50-year-old collins lives in rural kentucky with her sister carol maggard. collins is on a fixed income and uses medicaid to help pay her mounting healthcare bills. what would your medical bills look like without medicaid?

bevin, is now truly worried about losing her coverage. >> i'm sure mitch mcconnell don't have to worry about his medical bills or governor bevin, but real people have to. >> reporter: omar villafranca, cbs news, jenkins, kentucky. ♪ ♪ no, please, please, oh! ♪ (shrieks in terror) (heavy breathing and snorting) no, no. the running of the bulldogs? surprising. what's not surprising? how much money aleia saved by switching to geico. fifteen minutes could save you

>> look at that, look at that aggressive hit! >> reporter: it happens here almost daily. high-speed chases, sometimes reaching more than 100mph. >> whoa! >> reporter: up above, just about every police pursuit on the streets of los angeles is kcbs helicopter reporter stu mundel. >> bam! right there! my biggest fear is that somebody is really going to get hurt or die, or there's going to be some extremely innocent person injured. whoa, look at the kid, look at the kid! >> reporter: for good reason. says a new l.a. county grand jury report, which analyzed more than 400 police chases over one year, one in ten resulted in someone being injured. three people died. nationwide, more than 90% were in response to non-violent crime. >> whoa. look at that. >> reporter: each near miss raises the likelihood for what happened to 15-year-old jack phoenix, killed while crossing the street by a suspected car thief fleeing the l.a.p.d. at

this isset "cbs overnight news." president trump running backs to washington after a short trip to france where they are celebrating bastile day. emmanuel macron rolled out the red carpet, despite disagreements over climate change and russia the two leaders spoke of their visits fxz >> reporter: if this paris visit was supposed to be an easy little sightseeing getaway for president trump, he brought along a lot of baggage. >> as far as my son is concerned, my son is a wonderful young man. >> reporter: the controversial meeting during the election campaign between donald trump, jr., and a russian lawyer said to be offering dirt on hillary clinton hung over this visit like a cloud. but the president was sticking
to his story, that it was all part of the nasty game of politics. i've had many people... i have only been in politics for two years, but i've had many people call up, "oh, gee, we have information on this factor or this person, or frankly, hillary." >> reporter: any way, he insisted, the story was being overblown, not because the meeting shouldn't have taken place, but apparently because it produced nothing useful. >> zero happened from the meeting. >> reporter: the president came to paris at the invitation of french president emmanuel macron, to whom he gave a lift home in the presidential limo. the invitation was offered to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the entry of american troops into the first world war. that began a century of u.s. involvement in european affairs, a policy many in europe feel president trump is retreating
from. the hope is this visit might cement what seemed to be a fractious relationship between the two presidents that began with that who-lets-go-first white-knuckle handshake at their first meeting. at his guest's discomfort, though, president macron took the diplomatic high road. >> i will not interfere with interfere in the other's domestic life. >> what a good answer that is. >> reporter: the answers the president provided won't likely satisfy those who say that donald trump, jr., should never have taken that meeting. instead, they say, he should have reported the approach to the f.b.i. despite the smiles and hand shakes, the ongoing russian investigation over shadows the president's trip to france. major garrett joins us now from the white house. the president said today most people would have taken that
meeting with the russian lawyer, is that the consensus >> reporter: anthony, consensus in our divided country is probably elusive, but the president's own nominee to lead the f.b.i., christopher wray, appears to disagree. here is wray yesterday before the senate judiciary committee. >> to the members of this committee, any threat or effort to interfere with our elections from any nation state or any non-state actor is the kind of thing the f.b.i. would want to know. >> reporter: we've also learned the senate intelligence committee will request documents from trump, jr., and jared kushner about that meeting, and it wants to interview, as you might expect, anyone in the trump campaign who had contact >> mason: major, the president talked to reporters aboard "air force one" last night, and did not rule out inviting vladimir putin to the white house. what exactly did he say? >> reporter: indeed. he said at some point in the future he will invite president putin to the white house, just not now. he said this political moment is too hot, but he said to rule it out completely would be, in the president's words, "stupid." >> mason: he also talked about design for the wall on the southern border. what did he reveal if anything?
>> he revealed that he's serious about placing solar panels on that wall, and he wants it to be in his words "transparent." let me quote from the president directly as to why. "when they throw large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don't see them. they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff. it's over." the house has drafted a spending bill providing more than $1 billion for construction of that wall. there's a long, long way to go before it gets to the president's desk, but mr. trump says he's encouraged. closer to home, g.o.p. leaders in the senate rolled out their revised health care over haul bill, majority leader mitch mcconnell plans to hold a

>> if next year, the year after, we have people back home who see their premiums drop 10%, 20%, 30%, that's a big win, and it's a win for everyone. >> the revised g.o.p. health care bill still contains deep cuts to medicaid and will fall especially hard on rural communities. spoke with woman in mitch mcconnell's home state. >> this one is for my immune system. >> reporter: every day kathy collins has to take 27 pills in her fight against the autoimmune disease lupus. >> my legs hurt. >> reporter: 50-year-old collins lives in rural kentucky with her sister carol maggard. collins is on a fixed income and uses medicaid to help pay her mounting healthcare bills. what would your medical bills look like without medicaid? >> last year they were $945,000. >> reporter: nothing that we've advocated so far would cause anybody currently on medicaid to be taken off of medicaid.

president trump returns from france today where he took part in the celebration of bastile day and he was also marking the 100th anniversary anniversary of the entry of american troops into the first world war. that began a century of u.s. involvement in european affairs, a policy many in europe feel president trump is retreating from. the hope is this visit might cement what seemed to be a fractious relationship between the two presidents that began with that who-lets-go-first white-knuckle handshake at their first meeting. at his guest's discomfort, though, president macron took the diplomatic high road.
>> were you misled not knowing about this meeting. >> first i believe we will have a great fbi director. i think he's doing really well and we're very proud of that choice. think i've done a great service to the country by choosing him. he will make us all proud and i think some day we'll see that. and hopefully some day soon. so we're very proud of him. as far as my son is concerned. my son is a wonderful young man. he took a meeting with a russian lawyer. not a government lawyer but a russian lawyer. it was a short meeting, a meeting that went very, very quickly, very fast, two other people in the room, one left almost immediately the other was not really focused on the meeting. i do think this from a practical standpoint most people would have taken that meeting.
it's called opposition meeting or research into our opponent. i've only in politics for two years and years, but i've had many people call up, "oh, gee, we have information on this factor or this person, or frankly, hillary." that's very standard. in the case of don he listened. they talked about adoption and things. adoption wasn't even part of the campaign. but nothing happened from the meeting. zero happened from the meeting and honestly i think the press made a very big deal over something that really a lot of people would do now the lawyer who went to the meeting was in the halls of congress also. somebody said that her visa or passport to come into the country was approved by attorney
general lynch now maybe that's wrong i just heard that a while ago so surprised to hear that so she was hear because of lynch. so again, i have a son who is a great young man. he's a fine person. he took a meeting from a lawyer from russia. it lasted for a very short period and nothing came of the meeting. and i think it's a meeting that most people in politics probably would have taken. >> there are new concerns about a rare cancer possibly linked to breast implants. last year nearly 300,000 women opted for breast augmentation surgery. most suffered few problems. but a report by the fda links this rare cancer to implants in 157 1 and 31 patients i spoke to one of the patients. >> she was shocked to find a tumor under her arm.
>> i could feel a mass the size of an egg to a lemon. it was very large. >> then she learned it was cancer possibly connected to the cosmetic breast implants she had put in 17 years ago. >> i was never informed that i could possibly get cancer. basically they said they are 100% safe. >> it's called breast implant associate yapted aneplastic large sell lymphoma that could develop following breast implants something doctors at mdm cancer center in houston have been studying for five years. >> this is a type of lymphoma it is a cancer that develops in the scar tissue around breast implants. >> breast implants come with a smooth or textured outer surface. surgeons use these textured
implants to limit the movement of an implant. 15% are textured. fda says most women who developed lymphoma 203 of 231 received around textured implant. >> why is that do you know? >> so we know it's something triggering the limb pomo lympho to an allergic reaction in these patients and it stimulates part it's of their immune system and in certain patients developed into lymphoma. >> there are three breast manufacturers in the u.s. >> how big of a potential problem pr or otherwise is this lymphoma for a breast implant
manufacturer? >> we are taking it very seriously and want to make sure there's education. >> in particular telling doctors and patients that the cancer has a high cure rate often simply taking the implants out. >> it's rare and also very treatable as long as it is caught and implants removed. >> the risk is low but nine women have died and national cancer treatment guide line says anyone who gets the lymphoma should have her implants removed as soon as possible. kim roger says her insurer blue shield blue cross montana three times denied removal of her implants telling her it was contract exclusion because her implants were cosmetic. >> i was furious. the first line of defense was to remove the source. the source was still in my body. >> after repeated repeals they
decided to help with the removal not reconstruction. they said they do cover medley necessary cancer treatment. the company would not happen what happened in rogers case. but dr. clemens say. >> we can't wait months or years until an insurance company says we're going to cover it. >> these women could die. >> that's correct. >> rogers says she's continuing to fight for full insurance coverage on behalf of other women. >> i want to be the leader of the pack and for all the women behind me i want them not to do this battle that i'm doing. >> rogers says the cost of her removal and reconstruction could be up to $12,000. now for the other two manufacturers mentor told us
long term 2k59 support the safety and efficacy of its products and airgone works to help bring awareness. rogers won't know who made hers until they are removed but it is until they are removed but it is confirmed they are not every year, kids miss 22 million school days due to illness. until they are removed but it is confirmed they are not lysol disinfectant spray kills viruses that cause the cold & flu.
