8:06 am
stretch out over the course of the next few weeks is trying to convince them that it would be catastrophic to repeal the affordable care act with no replacement. it would affect the health insurance of millions of people. and since health care is one-sixth of the economy injecting uncertainty in the biggest sector of the american economy would also maybe hurt the economy and hurt jobs. so, we're trying to get them to slow down and join us around the table to talk about we would call it reforms and republicans can call it a replacement. but the key is let's make it better. let's fix it, not break it. that's why we were on the floor last night telling the stories of people. >> many people say democrats including the white house and including the congress have failed to explain what the affordable care act is about. >> well, look, there are some who say that, we were on the floor last night reading letters. i read letter from a family in
8:07 am
virginia. it's about health insurance for a family who had a child who would have been unsurable for a pre-existing condition before it was passed in 2010. and letters and testimonials from all over the country we're having people beg us do what we can to save this act. the republican effort to repeal it without a replacement could just 30 million people their insurance. that's a combined population of 19 states. and surely, we shouldn't do that without first sitting down and trying to find areas of agreement and making improvements. >> fireworks expected on capitol hill today. president-elect donald trump's choice for the top law enforcement official senator jeff sessions has confirmation hearings today. what questions do you have for him? >> i have a cabinet coming before me. i'm not on the judiciary, but i have questions. as you heard senator booker talk about earlier, the major questions for senator sessions are going to be around his civil rights record going back many
8:08 am
years but even up until recently. and then there's a second issue that i'm deeply interested in and that's torture. on the armed services on which i sit with senator sessions, we've had a number of bipartisan votes over recent years to clarify that the united states will not engage in torture, whether in the army or intelligence agencies. jeff sessions is one of the small number of senators who repeatedly voted against torture ban that are otherwise bipartisan. and i suspect that you're going to see that as a significant source of questioning in the hearing today. >> you'll be sitting in on the hearing for nominee rex tillerson. what are your thoughts about that? >> well, i've got a couple of questions for mr. tillerson. first, i want to deeply study the interaction he's had with the russian government. we're in the midst of a separate set of hearings about russia -- demonstrated russian efforts to influence cyberhacks of the american electoral system. and i want to understand better mr. tillerson's ties to vladimir
8:09 am
putin and the russian government. i also am deeply interested in the record of exxonmobil when mr. tillerson was in leadership, in funding organizations that tried to muddy up, or denied the reality of climate science. exxonmobil is an organization filled with scientists and engineers. and from what i've read, they understood long ago, decades, that humans were affecting climate in ways that could be dangerous. but the allegation then is that they then made a decision to cover that evidence up, as long as they could, for their own financial benefit. and i want to explore what mr. tillerson knows about that. >> front page of "usa today" is raising questions about deals that tillerson did with syria, sudan and iran while he was chairman and ceo of exxon. exxon replied that this was just a very small part of what exxon does. what's troubling to you about that? >> well, it may be a small part, but it's the kind of thing that we have to understand. we need to know more a secretary

of state is going to be putting u.s. interests front, center sole primary, or whether relations you have had with governments, including governments that are deeply adversarial to the unites would compromise the ability to stand and represent the interests of the country. >> do you have a feeling that he would do that, senator? you said clearly he was representing exxonmobil as ceo in those countries. and then he represents the united states and therefore that is his consistency. the united states national security. >> i have had a productive and courteous visit with mr. tillerson in the office. charlie, these ties are significant. and we have to get to the bottom of them. and i would say it's particular because we still don't know the extent of president-elect trump's dealings with some of these countries. so that puts even more of a burden on our shoulders to explore with cabinet secretaries what their financial ties and
8:11 am
their histories have been, dealing especially with nations that are adversarial to the united states. >> senator kaine, if things had gone differently you'd be making plans to move into the vice presidential residence next week. i wonder if this is a bittersweet time for you? we haven't heard much from you after the election. >> yeah, i've been doing a lot of work in virginia. of course, you're disappointed when you lose. i'll tell you, i get a lot of energy from this. there are big issues on the table. do we hurt millions of people by repealing health care or fix the system? do we deport people in the millions that donald trump said he would do as a candidate? nothing makes me feel better, i was a civil rights lawyer in the south for 17 years before i got into state politics, nothing makes me feel better than fighting for people who really need me to fight for them. so, that's what's giving me energy and i'm very excited to be back on the senate with an important role to play. >> the democratic party would like to have you come back. thank you for joining us.

good morning, i'm jim donovan. we're following a developing story this morning, several men traveling by car in frankford robbing people at gunpoint. police say three men jumped out after car on griscomb street just before 1:00 this morning, and confronted a 30 year old man. when the man resisted their robbery attempt, the man shot the victim twice. now in stable condition. a 18 year old woman was also robbed, after getting off of a bus at the frankford transportation center. now, let's turn to katie for a look at today's wetter. >> a lot to discuss out there, actually today, jim. first and for most, effective, still very cold outside. that's allowing some icing on the area rivers, including the schuylkill. so we will show you video here. yes, you can tell, there is definately some ice seen along the current here, as traffic very slowly moves through the shot here. but, yes, cold start to the
8:56 am
day. eventually we start to see the temperatures rebounding, but, until that point, you have got a little batch of snow trying to work its way eastbound. now i don't think this will have very easy time surviving as it crosses our area, does look like we could see snow shower, that would be it, real think evening is when things go a little more downhill. specific to our far northwest suburbs, up to the mountains, so western montgomery, upper bucks, watch for light snow and even some freezing rain, especially around the p.m. rush. this could be a concern, then ends up with a .10 of inch of ice, could make a vine blaze to really trip you up. mainly just rain later tonight. look at the warming trend that comes behind this. trade off as always, meisha, but watch for icing later. >> great to know. katie, thank you so muchment looking outside right now, penndot is zooming around here. there is a disable vehicle northbound boulevard at fox street. that left lane compromised. heads up on that. plus look at this map: camden 676 northbound, mlk boulevard, closed due to accident. also a disable truck. route 73 southbound before the

new jersey turnpike center lane block. also see how slow moving it is in those parts, as well. plus an accident in delaware. ninety-five northbound before route 141, jim? >> that's "eyewitness news" for now. join us for "eyewitness news" at noon, i'm jim donovan. make it a great day.
