7:48 am
up. yesterday he was in tennessee. he laid out -- we'll call it a new plan but a lot of the elements of it had been discussed before. not only by the president but democrats in the congress. basm the bottom line is he wants -- basically, the bottom line, he wants a reform of the corporate tax code that would bring in some new one-time revenues that would be used to pay for infrastructure programs like road and bridge construction. >> the one red flag that went out for a reporter is this -- nowhere was it mentioned how much money would be spent on infrastructure. past plans from the president have usually been around $50 billion. even those proposals the president has made since 2009, none of them have been voted on by democrats in the senate. there's not been support for it. the reaction has been pretty much expected along party lines. shockingly, the republicans are opposed to the plan. what exactly don't they like?
7:49 am
>> reporter: i think for one, the republicans look at it and say if you are gonna reform the business tax code, you have to reform individual taxes as well. because for those who are in small businesses, most of their income is treated true the regular individual tax code and not through the corporate tax code. republicans don't like using the reform of the tax code to bring in new revenue and when they look at the president's other plans, the stimulus spending is what it reminds them of. the democrats say, come on, everything this president proposes, the republicans are gonna say no to. >> we mentioned a short time ago the compromise that congress reached on student loans any chance we might see a similar compromise now. it's possible for -- >> reporter: anything is possible. people also say bipartisanship
7:50 am
is dead. i say this week we had the fbi director confirm he was nominated in june and confirmed in ulj. anything is -- in -- in july. anything is possible. it takes some real wheeling and dealing. i think the republicans in order to enter into what we might label a grand bargain are gonna have to get more than just the idea of a reform of the corporate tax code. as an old source used to tell me the devil is in the details. it might sound easy to talk about tax reform but getting that done is extraordinarily difficult for both parties. >> you said they are going on a break the end of the week and will be back after labor day? >> reporter: yes, the senate will be gone, i bet by tomorrow afternoon. the house will be in on friday. and then they are gone until september 9th. then they come back and work two four day weeks and are off another week.

7:56 am
freeway. northbound 880 is pretty slow getting up to the high street exit and this morning's commute is going to be moderate on the east shore freeway. that's cleared up quite a bit. westbound 80 at ashby avenue, there was a collision there or a little while ago. that's been moved off to the shoulder. it's not really causing any slow traffic, it seems. this is westbound 24. and here it is busy through la fayette. let's go to steve. all right, sal. thank you, sir. we also have a pretty busy fog bank. it definitely is large and in charge. and is keeping many locations on the cool side. a couple of breaks in there. it's making its impact feel well. that along with a rather strong westerly breeze all equals a cooler pattern today. can't get much cooler by the coast. socked in for the longest time for three weeks. kind of a weak system up to the north. that's enhancing some of that fog. 60s, 70s and 80s. minor warmup yesterday. a little cooldown today.

8:02 am
him up and took him away. >> reporter: the victim is in his 30s. he was taken to the hospital. last worder was in icu and they were unable to talk to him about what happened. investigators spent hours on scene overnight. they cannot -- they did not leave and what led to this is all still unclear. his friend who didn't want to go on camera, said he may have been driving home because he lives a few blocks away. there are some reports that the victim may have been in an argument prior to the shooting. police say they have one vehicle description. they are hoping more witnesses come forward to give them a better idea what happened before and what led to the shooting. claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. san francisco police are busy searching for two men accused of stabbing a man and a woman early this morning in golden gate park. it happened about 2:30 near stanian and haight streets. police say the victims are

8:06 am
they've thrown away 15 positions of donated goods which is about the same as filling up a tractor-trailer. goodwill says they don't know where the bedbugs originally came from but they are doing everything they can to get rid of them. that includes hiring exterminators at the san francisco warehouse and they will tent and treat a 20-square foot area where it's believed the bedbugs are found. >> we immediately called an exterminator to assess the situation. we've decided on saturday morning to close this warehouse and ure san francisco warehouse -- and our san francisco warehouse. >> reporter: where this hurts goodwill is the financial dollar. that trickles down to the employees who learn important job training skills. 80% of goodwill's operations depend on operations. the good news, the silver lining, they don't believe that any of the goodwill's 21 steers are affected. the bad news is that for now, two goodwill warehouses will be shut down as experts scope the
8:07 am
building and goodwill will have to decide whether as well more goods will need to be thrown out depending upon what they found. it will take time for the warehouses to be reopened. goodwill says if you would like to donate still the best way to do that is through finance am donations to offset the cost of the revenue that was lost because of this. brian flores, ktvu channel 2 news. doctors believe they have traced the source of a rare parasite that made people sick. it's from a prepackaged salad mix. the outbreak has sickened 172 people in nebraska and iowa. a total of 372 people nationwide. health departments have not released the brand of the salad mix. doctors say it contained iceburg and romaine as well as carrots and red cabbage. they add that the tainted food has been pulled off store shelves. let's quickly go to sal. don't tell me there's been a
