7:05 am
lawmakers will both address health care and agree on a federal budget to avoid a government shutdown next week. >> okay. i want to get both. are you shocked to hear that? as far as keeping the government open, i think we want to keep the government open. don't you agree? >> in an interview with the "associated press," president trump said businesses and individuals will receive a, quote, massive tax cut under a tax reform plan he will unveil next week. the president is feeling pressure to deliver something significant by next saturday. his 100th day in office. trump tweeted his frustration friday. go matter how much i accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, and it has been a lot, media will kill. but the president embraced the 100-day measurement as a candidate with this contract with the american voter, which now reads like a list of still yet to be delivered achievements like repealing obamacare, ending illegal immigration, and passing

7:08 am
they didn't know. they had no message for the health care bill. so they're trying to get the conservatives on board. but, alex, as you know, if you move to bill to the right, you're going to lose to moderates, and these moderates are very angry that the conservative freedom caucus is being wooed and they feel like they're being ignored. they don't want to take benefits from their constituents. so this is going to be very difficult to get through the house. and then to go through the senate, it could take months. >> in the meantime they're hearing pushback in town halls all over the country. >> that's right. that's why the moderates, you can kind o roll them, convince them to get to yes. if they think this is the end of their political career, then they're going to have a problem. let's talk about the political options. the president insitting the first 100 days doesn't matter. >> yeah. >> but they think it does. >> yeah. they want to show progress. at least if they got it through the house, it would be a big victory for them. i don't think they can ever stop saying, oh, we're done with
7:09 am
health care, we're done with repealing obamacare. so they've got to keep trying. but getting the votes is going to be very difficult and it really could be a handicap to them in the midterm election. >> if you look at the president's contract in america, which is his 100-day plan, where does he stand? >> well, he got a big win with kneel gorsuch getting him on the supreme court and he's eradicated some obama-era regulations. other than that, they've been 0-f 0-for. right now paul ryan and mitch mcconnell say don't judge us on 100 days. judge us on 200 days. they knew this is going to be such a heavy lift. but health care should have been done. >> and they control congress. >> exactly. >> the 0-for is the problem.

7:37 am
prevent future heart problems, but are patients following through on the treatment. a recent study in the american association's cardiology journal looked at nearly 58,000 medicare patients 66 and older who were discharged from the hospital following a heart attack. >> they were given high-dose statin prescriptions within 30 day of leaving the hospital. the primary goal of the study was to see if paetsch ejtss stayed on the statin medications. cbs contributor dr. tara narula is here with us with more. >> hi, anthony. >> did the people keep up? >> they did not. the adherence rates are not. it's not just for people with coronary artery disease but particularly people post-heart attack. in this study, when they looked at the six-month rate of adherence, it was 69%. ha dropped down to about 42% at two years. when they look at those over the age of 75, the numbers were similar. at two years, the high adherence
7:38 am
rate was around 39%. not great. >> so what can you do? i mean the stakes seem fairly high. what do you need to do to convince people to take their medications? >> the stakes are really high. there was a study in 2012 that shows that 20% to 30% of skricrs are not filled. this costs our country hundreds of billions of dollars. what can we do? a lot of my patients talk about their pharmacist as a great resource. having open lines of communication with your doctors to express your fears as opposed to stopping taking the medication in general, working can care coordinator, having telephone calls come to your home reminding you to take your medication. pill boxes, combining medication times with meal times and lower co-pays. all of that. >> take your medication. >> please. all right. our next topic, sleep before school. rib this one. parents and teachers often give
7:39 am
the same advice to kids. get enough sleep. but according to a cdc analysis of surveys, during an average school night, 68% of schoolers report getting seven hours or less. they recommend teens 13 to 18 years o s old get eight to ten hours. okay. i wish i had gotten ten hours of sleep during high school, tara. but what did the academy suggest regarding school start times? >> yes. so sleep time. so important for our children. while we may want them to go to bed at 9:00 in the evening or earlier. >> dream on. >> as you know, with teenagers, their circadian rhythm is delay. so for many of them it's hard to get to bed before 11:00. so by pushing the school start time back to 8:30, the hope is you can get this that eight to
7:40 am
ten hours that really is recommended. right now about 68% are getting less than seven hours. the idea is with more sleep, you improve alertness at school, you improve driving safety and avoidable accident, increase mental health and well being. so there are a lot of potential good side effects of pushing that time back. >> it's also an issue how much homework your teacher gives you that gets you to bed. that's another matter. pushing back the time doesn't necessarily mean better sleep, does it? >> no. that's where we come in as parents. we need to start to teach our kids at a younger age that this is a pryor and so they need to go to sleep in a cool dark room, turn off devices early so you don't get that blue light that can interfere with the secretion of melatonin. you need to practice going to bed and waking up at the same time every day in addition to weekends, and also having a bedtime routine just like we teach our little little ones to
7:41 am
have a bedtime routine. >> sleep is delicious and they need to learn it at a young age. >> it's a never ending battle. >> it is. finally, texting. it's how many of us communicate. but should we be keeping our backs and necks in mind while doing it. according to a recent article in the spine journal -- e have a subscription -- surgeons noted they're seeing nr back and next issues. and long hours of texting is seen as a culprit since you're using a forward flexed position. this looks like what i'm doing all day long. it's led to the term "text neck." the authors advice caution with children as it starts with young ages when spines are still developing. they have some tips. hold your iphone at eye level. >> so natural. >> and the use of two hands and two thumbs for a more comfortable pogsz.

around since greeks or even before that. to think that we're going o defund it, ujds fund it, ignore it, and still find a way in this incredibly fraught planet, it's not going to happen. >> the white house is debating still the paris agreement. >> right. >> president trump, one of his campaign promises was to cancel it. can he? >> difficult. it's actually difficult. so the great thing about the paris agreement was it was designed to be both flexible and resilient. flexible because each country has its own way of approaching this problem. resilient because of exactly challenges like this. even if we wanted to get out of it, it would take several years, three years or so. now what could happen, and i actually don't think administration is going to do that. i really don't. that's my belief. that's not scientific. >> doesn't the president's attempt to unwind the obama era clean power plan, doesn't that throw into doubt whether the u.s. can actually meet its
7:50 am
targets as outlining in the paris climate agreement? >> sure. what can happen is the u.s. can underfund or defund its own commitment. but the problem with doing this is, look, the train has left the station. this is not a problem that gets better with age. i promise you. the whole world is already on this. the question is does america want to lead or does it want to follow. with the leaders and science in technology and ways of finding ways of living on the planet better, why give that up now. >> you have an exciting series on vox that everybody gets to look at. climate lab. it's a must-see on the internet. well, generally. >> generally. it comes this way, deals with the issues on climate change in an irreverent way with sort of different groups of people. >> all right. thank you very much for being with us this morning. again, the series is "climate lab" on vox's youtube channel. they're the stuff of science

welcome to "cbs this morning: saturday." i'm anthony mason. >> and i'm alex wagner. coming up this hour, trying to improve veterans' health care. president trump extends a program for veteran. we'll talk with the secretary of the v. about the state of that agency. and a peek behind closed doors of the author of "shatter," hillary clinton's campaign. and the life and death of heath ledger. we'll talk with his sister and the director of that film. first, president trump's 100 days ends a week from today. president trump said friday
8:01 am
there's no hurry, yet he announced a massive tax cut plan will probably arrive wednesday and news spread of a new health care push also on its way. yesterday the reporters asked him about it outside of the treasury. >> health care is coming along well. the government is coming along really well. a lot of good things are happening, thank you, folks. >> are you going to get a health care vote next week? >> don't know. didn't matter if it's next week. next week doesn't matter. >> the president also faces major budget threat with the threat of a potential government shutdown. this week president trump signed a law expending health care on veterans. it allows some to receive treatment through private providers. the program was enacted following the 2014 scandal at the v.a. that found some vets waiting weeks, even months to receive medical treatment. >> while the law received by partisan support, some talk
8:02 am
about it. we're pleased to be joined by the treasury secretary of the v.a. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's talk about how it might affect veterans. we're hearing from the white house. a study shows the uninsured rates of veterans under the age of 5 fell 40% between 2013 and 2015 largely because of the aca. what is the implication as far as veterans concerned -- are concerned if the aca is repealed? >> well, first of all, i think we're going to have to take a hard look and see exactly what the legislation says. they're hard at work to see if they can come up with something that will pass. mo matter what happens, the v.a. will be there as a health care system for veterans, and so if more veterans need to come to the v.a., we will be prepared to do that. >> are you willing to take the beliefs and express them to the president? >> the president shares my commitment that we're going to be there for veterans. veterans have to get the
8:03 am
services that we owe them as a country and that's the job that the v.a. has. >> you're a hold joer from the obama white house. what change if any are you seeing with this administration so far? >> what i'm seeing is really a bipartisan commitment to making sure we fix the issues that have been plaguing the v.a. for years and what i'm seeing is just a consistent desire to move quickly and to make some hard decisions to fix the v.a. >> mr. secretary, during your confirmation, you say that veterans health care would not be privatized and yet this week the president signed a bill that would allow some veterans to receive medical care. how do you square those two things? >> in no way are we seeking to privatize. we said in order to give vedrans the care we need, we're going to have to work closer with the private sector and so we're looking for a system that takes the best of what the v.a. has to offer, which is tremendous services for the veterans and supplement it with what the v.a.
8:04 am
is not doing. so it's an integrated approach to care. >> there's a possibility of a shutdown ahead. how might that affect the v.a.? >> the v.a. is in a fortunate situation which is called advanced appropriation. we get our money a year ahead of time. congress understands we can't shut down. we're there for our veterans. >> there's no rrif tock veterans. >> there's no risk to veterans. >> there's supposed to be a press conference on wednesday. what are we going to hear? what might we hear? >> we're going to talk about the tremendous progress and we're excited to share with the american people about all the things we're doing to honor the commitment toward our veterans. >> secretary david show kim, thank you so much for being here. the white house has quietly named a new surgeon general. a nurse and 24-year veteran with the department of human and
8:05 am
health services. the former surgeon general was asked to resign on friday. the trump administration is blocking exxonmobil's bid to continue drilling for oil in russia. the company wanted an exemption from sanctions that bar u.s. companies from drilling there. the sanctions were put in place after u.s. intelligence agencies determined that russia in ter feared in last year's presidential election. there were concerns about potential conflicts of interest when exxonmobil applied for that waver. secretary of state rex tillerson was the company's ceo before joining the trump administration. former president george h.w. bush is spending the weekend in a houston homtd as he recovers from a mild case of pneumonia. a spokesman for the 41st president say mrs. bush feels trif and says his extended stay is to, quote, ensure a fully clean bill of health.

hillary clinton's defeat in the upset was big. they point to the very outcome that was hiding in plain sight. >> they detail their findings in a new book "shattered: inside hillary clinton's doomed campaign." how is that for a title. we welcome you in. congrats on the new book. there are hosts of people across the country who want to know what happened. one of things i took away from the book is there were two things inside the book. the sort of gut retail team. john, what happened between those two factions? >> well, we live in a society now where everybody is so focused data and we have so much data and it's so important to so
8:11 am
many things that we do. there were people inside the campaign that just believed that you could slice and dice the electorate and turn out the right number of people in the right number of places by playing close to the edge and trying to be as efficient as possible. and there was another set. bill clinton was really a leader of the old school of politicians who believed you've bot go out and persuade people and change minds and the decision won't be static if you change minds. there's big tension. we detail it in the book. it's one of the things they haven't talked about a whole lot. tremendous tension between the two ideas, the art of politics. >> retail politics. >> retail politics and the data science of it. both are important. but this campaign overrelied on data. >> you described this as a campaign that was miserable even before it started which is a pretty ominous statement. but what struck me also is what you say early on hillary clinton didn't have a reason for running. you say hillary had been running
8:12 am
for almost a decade and still didn't really have arationale. >> yeah. we bring that up in the book. she brought a slew of advisers to form her message, have a central core she was driving. she never quite had that center of gravity. she brought in an obama speech writer to help her and even he threw up his hands and left and he was like, i can't do anything about this. he was used to president obama. >> unflappable. there was also the critical moments in the campaign, the e-mails, for example. hillary clinton didn't want to apologize or take that on head first in a way a lot of her staff thinks she needed to. >> there's a moment of tension in the book where she and the president are kind of frustrated about why their message isn't
8:13 am
resonating and they kind of take it out on their aides. they're like, come on, get it together. they don't quite realize what's happening, ha the e-mail has sort of become the campaign, so they're trying to push back, and her aides are kind of getting her to a place where she can feel comfortable and actually talk about e-mail, and that's a point of tension. this is like the first summer she had just launched her speech. she can't get her message across because it's all about e-mail. >> yeah. >> did she misunderstand the mood of the country? >> absolutely. income, there are several places in the book where you sort of get a window into that. one in particular, after new hampshire where she got crushed by bernie sanders, 22 points. she's flying on the plane with one of her closest friends who had been brought in basically to listen to her, you know, i mean she's in this sort of devastated place and her friend gets on the plane with her and clinton says
8:14 am
to her friend, i don't know what's going on with the country, i can't get my arms around it. we could see in the campaign there are moments she could be more populous. what happened to the populous fire that bernie sanders was ignited and donald trump was igniting. and she was an >> you get into the excruciating moments of election night in 2016 which was a line in the sand which is a disjunkive moment. what happened inside clinton headquarters? >> they find out -- there are four centers where they're gathered. one in brooklyn. there's a brooklyn going on here in her hotel room at peninsula hot hotel. her aides are gathering around her. it's not good. they're getting results back. she's very stoic the entire time. finally the president, president
8:15 am
obama is trying to get her to concede. a message is a very clear message. he calls and says that his political adviser david simas calls and tries to push. she concedes. then there's a moment where she actually has to make that call and say, i'm sorry, donald. >> i'm sorry, donald? >> congratulations donald. there's a moment and she has to apologize. she gets the call from the president. it's a consolation call, and she has to say, i'm sorry, mr. president. so it's quite an evening for her. she is feeling the weight of moment. she has let down her party, the nation, the president ands he legacy. you can feel that. >> an unthinkable moment for the candidate. >> unthinkable moment after running for ten years and one of the more powerful moments and the tick tock is what people
8:16 am
have seen behind the scenes. >> a lot of tick tock. a solid read. >> jonathan allen, amie parnes, thank you both for being with us this morning. >> thank you so much. heath ledger's career was short but in a short few years he expressed his talent. we'll revisit his life and work with the make of a new documentary and members of the ledger family. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." >> announcer: this portion sponsored by toyota. let's go places. ♪ twenty years from now... will be more disappointed... the things you didn't do... ...than by the ones you did do.

8:22 am
photography and filmmaking, we couldn't resist. we contacted family and friends and the next thing you know we were making the movie. >> to that end there's a lot of personal home footage. how much was there? >> it's amazing. he used the camera from a young age not only to take in the world around him but as a tool. he never went to acting classes. he acting out various skits, looked at it and modified it. it's amazing. hours and hours of film. >> what was it like for you to see the film? >> for me it was an incredibly emotional experience, but just so him. i mean i'm so glad. >> when you say it was so him, what does that mean? >> it's truly reflective of who heath really was? >> who was that? >> the creative spirit. you know, he was more than just the celebrity persona that i
8:23 am
think people saw. he was really multitalented and just a beautiful soul and i think that really comes through the film. >> what was he -- what was its like to grow up with someone who knew from such an early age that he had -- that his creative mind was so much on display, it sounds like. >> he was just a normal kid, you know. i don't think there was any real sort of difference with him growing up. it wasn't really until he was sort of 17, i think. >> what happened then? >> he left home to drive across australia and become an actor. and that was huge. that was a big step. >> did you have any indications that he was struggling near the endso end? >> absolutely not. on the contrary. you know, heath was really happy. he was in graduate place in his life and he was making most amazing films, and he had the best fun ever with "batman."
8:24 am
he could not wait to show us. i saw a few. i said to him, i think this is it for you. you've really taken it to the next level. amazing. i was so excited for him. >> to that end, derek, some say the darkness of his role as joker in "batman" was somehow influential. >> i want to jump in there. it was the exact opposite. he had so much fun. i think i'm the only one who watches our family probably, the only one who watched this film and actually laughed because he was kind of like -- he was having a ball in that nurse's getup. he just had fun. he had a really great sense of humor. and he found this incredibly fun. he said it was the best time i have ever had making a film. there was no darkness to it. >> but you're so right though. that was the rumor. that's what people thought. >> that was the nashive. >> but from the family to the
8:25 am
people who worked on set, to the people that worked with him and knew him intimately, this was the most fun he had ever haute throughout the entire process and after. >> derek, what surprised you most about making the film about heath ledger? >> there were a couple of things but one thing we found fascinating right from the beginning is how he turned the camera on himself. it wasn't a hobby. it was a passion. he took the camera everywhere. the film is basically wall to wall with clips and video and photography that heath produced and shot. we call him really a co-director to the movie. >> kate, what would he be doing now? >> i think he wanted to direct. he loved acting as well but i think he had great plans. >> i'm sorry not to see it come to free egs. there is a documentary coming out. thanks for coming on the show to
