you think about it and what significance, egypt is a changes you would like to see. linchpin in the region. my first read of the morning. the peace treaty has been a the supreme court will rule on cornerstone and the suez canal the president's signature legislative achievement, the with so much of the world's oil health care law, putting an to go through. all of that gives egypt much exclamation point on a more significance in this stage. tumultuous month for the white house. >> in cairo, thank you as that could come an hour from now always. up next, capital crunch time. on the last official day of the term or thursday. health care and holder are the additional day the court looping large on the hill. added to its decision schedule. plus style versus substance. up in the state for the white house, a court ruling on romney's supporters are worried arizona's immigration law. something is missing. then fast and furious. d-day for the student low rates the contempo against eric holder that will expire june 30th if not extended by congress. got more political. and it's the last opportunity to make a deal on a highway bill. the most powerful gun lobbying that might create a couple of group will be watching the vote very closely. first a look ahead at the jobs. house republicans promised a president's schedule. contempt vote for eric holder. he doesn't leave until he is it's the suspension that has clear totally and knows what's both scrambling. there three possible outcomes. coming out of the supreme court and then he is off to a campaign everything is upheld or struck down or something in between. trip. a mix of both policy and
9:01 am
they emptied their health care campaign stuff in new england. you are watching "the daily notebooks with the strategy and rundown" only on msnbc. [ female announcer ] fashion or food, it's all about tae. using phrases like brave face and obama braces for a ruling for which is a ruling that the and the chefs at lean cuisine are loving tangy lemon, court strike down at least some of the law. a few days after oral argument, peppery poblano, sweet butternut. how he would respond if the bill we're roasting, and grilling is overturned. to create must-have meals with no preservatives. lean cuisine. be culinary chic. >> ultimately i am confident that the supreme court will not take what would be an unprecedented extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected congress. >> the president tempered that language, it's clear that judicial activism will be the white house argument if the law is struck down, particularly if the decision is 5-4. if the law is overturned, it to create must-have meals with no preservatives. recently, students from 31 countries took part in a science test. will be hard for the president
9:02 am
to explain it away. they will have politics on his side, but he will offend 25% of the top academic performers surprised some people. his presidency on something the so did the country that came in 17th place. nation's highest court determines unconstitutional. let's raise the bar and elevate our academic standards. if it's upheld, the winning side will feel energized. let's do what's best for our students-by investing in our teachers. republican leaders are wary of let's solve this. going too far. if the court strikes down all or part of the president's health care law, there will be no spiking of the ball. okay, so he said. [ male announcer ] you're at the age then the outcome nobody is where you don't get thrown by curveballs. ♪ expecting, the one virtually this is the age of knowing how to get things done. every legal scholar predicted so, why let erectile dysfunction get in your way? when the challenges were first announced. talk to your doctor about viagra. that would throw the republican base for a loop and probably mean that the romney has to talk 20 million men already have. ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sex. about health care more because do not take viagra if you take nitrates for chest pain; his base would demand it. it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. >> i know the supreme court is side effects include headache, flushing, about to make a decision with upset stomach, and abnormal vision. regards to obama care. i have here in my pocket what to avoid long-term injury, seek immediate medical help they are going to say. for an erection lasting more than four hours.
9:03 am
actually i don't know what they stop taking viagra and call your doctor right away are going to do, but regardless if you experience a sudden decrease or loss of what they do, it's going to in vision or hearing. be up to the next president to this is the age of taking action. repeal and replace obama care or viagra. talk to your doctor. replace obama care. i intend to do both. >> then the possibility of the mandate struck down and the rest of the law is upheld. it looks more and more like a legislative nightmare. how do you cover the cost of treating people who don't have insurance if younger people are allowed to dropout of the system, the president is arguing the public is too tired to relitigate these battles. >> we're don't need to refight the battle we just had over health care reform. >> for the president wins this legal fight, is it the pivot that sells the law to the public for the first time? if it is struck down, how does the president joke about it at the white house dinner in april? >> in my first time we passed health care reform.
9:04 am
in my second term, i guess i will pass it again. >> anyway, it's anybody's guess. careful of the predictions. the political nightmare for everybody involved is 5-4. nobody will feel like they got a fair hearing on that. more than 700 top fund-raisers for mitt romney gathered in park city, utah. two days of campaign strategy and policy issue and an well, today may be the day opportunity for donors to rub the supreme court rules on president obama's health care shoulders with every republican in the running to be mitt reform and decides whether or not a huge chunk of it and a romney's number two. huge chunk of it in the >> it's a rally, if you will, of legislative record gets wiped his best supporters and a out. marcia blackburn of tennessee, briefing on the issues. >> meyers who is running the thanks for coming on set. >> good to be with you. >> let me start with the biggest process was there with every republican thought to be under what if. if some. consideration to be the partner >>s get struck down with, the on the ticket. look at that list of folks. whole law or the mandate itself, among the highlights of the day we know what the plan is.
9:05 am
was a lunchtime speech by you said regardless of what the courts do, we know that. someone who took herself off the short list. the former secretary of state give me some good of what the replace looks like. received not one, but two i hear the repeal talking point. standing ovations. what does the replace look like? one described it as exhilarating. what does that mean? they defended the business >> you know one thing to bear in record saying according to the "wall street journal," barack mind, we have already voted to obama does not understand the narrative of america. repeal obama care. the narrative of america is not we are ready to move forward. i am doing poorly because you replace is going to see us focus are doing well. on a few things. maybe most strike was the number one, increasing choice attendance of the super pac men. and options. karl rove was there and charlie decreasing cost and mandates was spotted in the hotel lobby. would be number two. number three would be they confirmed he was in the lobby and said he was not simplifying the system for patients and providers. officially attending and his number four is restoring the wife was a member of the romney cuts that were made to medicare and number five, make health team. they were asked about whether the coziness between the care tax-free. campaign and the super pacs is >> all of that is good, but the at all improper. sticking point with preexisting >> it is indeed proper because conditions. the line between the campaigns you wipe out the idea so an and these independent groups is insurance company doesn't have to take you or keep that? that you can't coordinate about >> there ways to do older the expenditure of money.
9:06 am
children staying on parents's you can talk all day about health care plans and issues, policy, general things preexisting conditions. like that. allow those provisions to move >> by the way, here's an forward. >> how do you do it without the interesting question for you. imagine if the obama campaign cost? without insurance companies held something like this and all escalating the cost. of its big bundlers and donors. the pnt was to prevent that. a lot of whom would be more >> moving preexistings back to famous. perhaps athletes and stuff. funds that are run by the state. i wonder what the coverage would you can do that. have looked like. this has been a rough month for it would work more like a the president. worker's comp plan would work. whether it is may's weak jobs there plans for doing that and report or republicans using having those with preexisting subpoena power and the fast and furious this week, everything conditions, but have them handle that happened in the month of them. >> you won't have much choice. june, there is remarkable what you are describing is sort stability in the race. nothing like taking a few days of this catastrophic pool. off to see that. a lot of chatter and little people won't have many choices. change. romney is raising money and the campaign is on message, but he >> let's let the market work on has been the subject of a pretty that. we have got plans that have been out there, ways and means had sustained media assault from the obama campaign going on all month. maybe it's part demographics and plans on that. good work on the issues.
9:07 am
strategy and maybe it's part kevin brady also. there plans in place. when it am cans to lowering the obama campaign spending, but the bottom line is we have a nearly dead even race. cost, my legislation which is where the race was in april and cross the state line of health where the race was in may. insurance. a lot of individuals to buy with all this, it's where the race is right now. what's going to suit their speaking of presidential needs. there great ideas out there. we have worked on these and campaigns, there was a big overseas. egypt has their first new brought these forward. what you are going to see is president in more than 30 years. what people want us to do. muslim brotherhood candidate was declared the winner after days start over with a clean slate of delays. and work on health care nbc is live for us in cairo with transformation so that you have more. something patient-centered and i know that president obama did move away. something interesting. he didn't just call the winner, >> what you are describing, we haven't solved the biggest but he also called the loser. problem. what do you do with people with tell me more. preexisting conditions that don't have good choices for >> reporter: he did. the white house confirmed and so insurance. >> i would disagree with that. did the u.s. embassy that if you are lowering the cost, if president obama did speak to the you are allowing more people to losing candidate and encouraged get into the market place. him to continue playing a role in egypt's politics going >> how do you know you are forward, perhaps trying to unify
9:08 am
lowering the cost? the country in some capacity. >> you look at the competition that is going to be a measure that many people here will not and what happened with other be happy about. it is perhaps customary, but insurances. >> you will create a competition many egyptians have expressed where you have one catastrophic the u.s. meddling in affairs. pool, one insurance company that will get stuck with the expense. no doubt by some people that is >> i disagree. >> you will have private insurance. how do you prevent should that? how that will be interpreted. >> by moving it back to the >> now obviously the next big state so you have a race. step in this process is who is you are describing people say really running the country? you have to race to the bottom. is it going to be this new i disagree. you incentivize a race to president or is it going to be quality. this sort of military tribunal? what we want is for the market place to lead and for patients to be able to have that choice. i don't know what else to call it. in choosing their doctor and in is it going to be this entity of the military? choosing what they are going to >> no doubt that the short answer to that is it's going to have as their insurance. then focusing on getting the be a hybrid of both. cost of delivery down. the question is which powers we have two components of this. will be in whose hands. the leading council, the supreme the health insurance side and the health care delivery side. council said they will return what we need to be doing is certain powers. amon those important powers are lowering the cost on both of the oversight of the national
9:09 am
those fronts. budget. the ability to appoint senior if we go back and focus on officers and declare war and health care transformation and more importantly now that the look at the components that are parliament has been resolved, the ability to legislate. there that we tried to work on that leaves the president with for years and move forward the very little powers. ideas and opening up the the critics and the cynics have insurance market and focusing on tort reform and getting rid of been saying this transition has been botched and the incoming ipad and working on the president is not going to have substantial powers and that the preventive service task forces and bringing that under and into military has put on a civilian face to their own rule. a lot of people remain skeptical a better platform, i think we have ways to do that. >> sounds just as complicated as about this transition as it is the initial thing going through. led by the military. >> it is complicated. >> how different is this from the uncertainty that we have >> you will deal with this about who runs pakistan? return general on eric holder. what is the scandal here? >> in so many ways, it is very when constituents come up and different. egypt historically struggled say this sounds like one of the with military rules that washington chatters. what's the scandal in your mind predominantly are secular. that is behind fast and furious? you now you have power that will >> we have an american citizen. cut deep into the issue of identities. border patrol who lost his life. there a lot of issues about women's rights. when my constituents talk about
9:10 am
all of these are not coming to the surface. this, and they do, they are this would be a big burden for this country to have to deal looking at how could the federal with. because of the geopolitical government have allowed these guns to walk? chuck, this is one of the trusting integrity issues. what they want to know is, tell us what happened. >> don't we know what happened? we do know what happened. that's what i don't understand. >> they don't know who said to do this. who signed off on it. exactly what was the change of command and what all happened with it. they want to know exactly what happened. it's like with solyndra. we hear about that with the doe loans. tell us what happened. >> do you think it's proper that to me there has been a lot. this is not news to a lot of people. the fact that they make this vote and they will score it to me just sort of underscores that this is a political fight and
9:11 am
not a serious legislative disagreement. should they be scoring this? >> what people are looking at is, what happened and they want to know what happened. there a lot of votes that get score and don't get scored. i wasn't aware that the nra was scoring this vote. >> do you wish they weren't? >> that's a periphery issue. i think that what the american people are saying is, we want to know that we can trust those who are put in place to protect our government. my constituents, they want to know that the individuals that are in those places are making the decisions that are going to protect america and american citizens. >> we will leave it there. the republican from tennessee, thanks for coming in. next, down to the wire on the hill as we told you. congress has less than a week to act before the student loan

9:15 am
it's the start of the week. here are other stories we are watching this morning. the student loan interest rates set to double unless congress takes action to stop it. that's all the fury on capitol
9:16 am
hill. the interest rate would rise from 3.4% to 6.8% on july 1st. both sides want to keep them at the lower rate. they can't agree on how to pay for it. 7 million students would have to pay more if congress doesn't act. the expectation is there will be some sort of last minute compromise. turkey called for nato to meet after one of its military jets was shot down by syrian air fighters this weekend. turkey's foreign minsters said the jet was down after they mistakenly entered the airspace. >> slumped with rain as tropical storm debby battered florida over the weekend. inches of rain in tampa where they gathered to nominate their candidate. it hovers over the gulf of mexico where it could remain for several days, gather strength and keep pouring water all over

>> sell is experimenting with a
9:21 am
new election system nicknamed a jungle primary and allows the top two votegetters to advance no matter what party they are in. the state ended up with seven races in which two members of the same party finished and two. they square off in 4 1/2 months. six of the seven feature democrats with democrats. vermin sherman, round two. bread sherman and the new 30th district, 42-32. sherman appears to have the edge. he has more voters from his old district and more in the primary. he heads into november with $3 million in the bank. he has been trying to harvest star power. >> betty, if you want a friend in washington, know what you do?
9:22 am
>> get a dog. that's what i'm told. >> what are else? >> reelect howard berman. >> that approach department help him get the top slot and he is promising to run a harder hitting campaign. this after ads like this from congressman sherman appeared to take its toll. >> berman took 163 trips all over the world paid for by tax and special interest. >> berman charged taxpayers $186,000 to lease a car. sherman didn't. >> 44 years of experience and between them, fighting for politics. we have seen a preview of one of the most expensive and perhaps chaining for junkies and perhaps nasty races all year. it helps if berman and sherman
9:23 am
rhyme. that makes it easier. brad sherman and one half of berm an sherman, the epic battle of southern california. what do you think of this new primary system and if you win you love it, if you lose, you hate it. >> it's good for governing and bad for elections and bad for politicians. i won in june and i would assume have that be decisive, but we have the expense of doing it again months from now. i like the idea that this decision which will determine who represents the west san fernando valley for decades to come will be made by over 300,000 voters voting in november. it would have been made by maybe 70 or 80,000 people voting in the democratic primary in june. every kind of voter, democrat, republican, independent, and even those who vote only in
9:24 am
november ought to be part of this important decision. >> what's your appeal to republican voters? what do you say to the -- this is a district they think will have about a third of the voters be republican at end of the day. somewhere between 28 and 35% depending on the turn out. what do you say to them? >> first i say the same thing i say to everyone in the san fernando valley. the accessibility and the fact that i have done 160 town halls and everyone knows how to reach me. if you have a problem with the federal government, my staff and i personally will work to solve that problem. that goes over very well, particularly with republicans who may look at the two of us on or voting records and not find all that much they like. the second thing i say is that i led the fight against the $700 billion bailout in washington, d.c. the bailout of wall street. we stopped it the first time and
9:25 am
forced major changes in the program that saved this country well over $400 billion. that appealed to everyone in the district, particularly republicans. >> one of the things berman has on you is seniority and you are trying to make that a negative in terms of been in wasngton a long time. seniority matters more so in the house than the senate. you know this as now you have been a member of minority and majority. to have any influence at all, you need seniority. what do you say to the voter who is aware of how congress's power works and you will get rid of berman's seniority that will have ill effects. does it not? >> on the other hand, a decade from now, i will have a lot of seniority. if howard were to retire, we would have a freshman. you can't have someone with 90 years seniority in the house. at some point i district needs to elect somebody new or with
9:26 am
already 16 years of seniority. seniority matters most as you know, chuck, on the committee that you serve. doesn't matter how long you have been in the house. the question is, are you the ranking member or the chairman? as it turns out, i am the most senior democrat, a member of congress on the foreign affairs committee. there is a delegate from american samoa who has seniority, but the seniority matters on the committee and on that committee, i am the most senior member. >> let me ask you one of the chief critiques that has been coming from the campaign. that's this simple fact. howard berman passed 18 bills and you have passed three. why have you only been involved -- how do you explain the fact that you have only passed three laws? you started and authored since
9:27 am
1997. >> well, i'm a workforce, not a show horse. i never go into a meeting saying my name has to be first on the list. with a last name that starts with s, i'm used to not being first on the list. i cosponsored and worked to pass 140 bills that are now law. the second is that counting the number of times your name goes first on the bill, if that's the criteria, howard should have resigned in 2006 because from 1995 to 2006, the 12-year period, he passed zero bills where where his name went first. it's an absurd criteria. sometimes your name goes first and often you are one of a team of people passing a bill. if you go to brad, you can see the list of 140 bills i cosponsored that are laws today. >> okay, bread sherman, i have
9:28 am
to leave it there. berm an sherman, sherman sherman. we will be interchangeable about it. the panel will be here next to kickoff the week. we are talking about the decisions expected from the supreme court this week, possibly today. we are looking about the vetting list for vp. we have a new vet and a programming note. the new show, the cycle premiers today at 3:00 eastern. martin bashir is in his new time slot at 4:00 and we will follow the rest of your favorite primetime lineup. much more on the daily run down. first, the white house soup of the day is a soup i had a lot in the last week. gazpacho. you can always follow the show on facebook and let us know what you think. some of the new look things. a little twitter. let us know on facebook. you are watching "the daily

9:32 am
the court struck down the line item veto that congress gave the president as a way of attempting to cut pork barrel spending. >> this day in 1998 when by a 6-3 vote, they ruled the line item veto was unconstitutional, making plipt the first and only u.s. president to have had the power to cross out items out of a budget law for about a year. speaking of the supreme court, it's not just health care, the court could hand down a ruling on arizona's controversial immigration law. they drew sit simple for provisions including giving police officers authority to check the immigration status of people they stopped. former rnc chairman and
9:33 am
political analyst with the author of the take. the chief correspondent. welcome all. immigration i think we have a preview of what the republican response will be on whatever is handed down from marco rubio on "meet the press" yesterday. >> arizona has an all out border problem that is not just about immigration, but security. frustrated with inaction from the federal level inacted with the ball. >> he was making the argument that this was dealing with an arizona problem. this should not apply to other states. >> this law became a national debate. the former governor of massachusetts mr. romney suggested and there was dispute about this. which part of the law should be. >> they only took issue with that. >> it's part of the national debate about what you do about the immigration problem.
9:34 am
>> can your party handle three more days? is there a good day when that's the story of the day? >> not with the narrative they have written. marco rubio had the clearer voice, but that is stifled in terms of getting ahead of the narrative with his version of the dream act. you saw them pedalling and trying to threat the needle. you have to look to jeb bush and marco and others. the demographics work after that. >> you almost wonder if they plan the conference before arizona. they couldn't have planned for what the president did a week before. here is both president obama and mitt romney laying out how they
9:35 am
are going to talk about immigration. >> in a speech, he said that when he makes a promise to you, he will keep it. he promised to veto the dream act and we should take him at his word. >> unfortunately despite his promises, president obama has failed to address immigration reform. >> there it is in a nut shell. you saw what the obama campaign would say and all he said was hey, he had four years to do something and he didn't. >> the president just did something a couple weekings ago. the republicans have this enormous long-term problem and the romney team knows it. you saw the backing off of the primary season, but not much that romney can say at this point. then the president does something and where are the
9:36 am
voters going to be this fall? i think they have their work cut out for them. something they can't solve. >> i think the president would be happy to talk about immigration. >> over and over. >> it's the last thing he wants to talk about. whenever he talks to latino voters, he will talk about economics. >> the obama team will make sure this issue stays in. >> it's clear that they are rooting for the supreme court. >> health care and have it be bundled together. you bundle them together. very quickly, under the radar, besides the emptying of notebooks, going back and forth and all of it is moot if it gets upheld. there was a ton of bean respecting. clear the ork bama campaign lost the debate inside. washington and new york, the bane debate, however the campaign keeps using it and they wouldn't because they are trying to prove it.
9:37 am
it seems to work. >> it works and that has been the broader argument. they would like to have the ecochamber supporting the officials. they are pitching beyond the belt. how important are articles like this? you can visualize that in about a month or sore. you can see the headlines are coming. >> absolutely. >> i think they are doing everything they can to encourage more of that. the senior obama team. >> they are flat. >> they were all in washington last week doing a back ground briefing for 40 and one of the points was we think there ought could be more scrutiny of bean. testifies kind of a popular cry from them. >> has the romney campaign comforted themselves too much? they don't like the attacks?
9:38 am
they don't seem to be trying to fix the larger issue. how does he prevent the campaign from making him look like one of the bombs from office space. >> the romney team, bane is the central argument of his cant dasy. look at my private sector experience. this qualifies me to fix a country in turmoil. the fact that they don't have a response to the bean attacks. >> other than saying look at the democra democrats. that doesn't fly in ohio. the headlines will be outsortsed jobs and -- >> the auto industry is is doin well there. we wonder why tim pawlenty is the front-runner? >> he says he doesn't run, apparently. >> that's the right answer. >> we ask the 27th amendment is the most recent amendment to the constitution. which was it originally proposed? the answer is september 25, 1789. this prevents lawing affecting

the speculation and second-guessing over mitt romney ace vice presidential list and some tom top contenders attended retreat this weekend. one thing we did learn officially it seems national review listed paul ryan was asked it to turn over papers. i don't think we're surprised. they really hit it off during the wisconsin primary and dpot their geek on. >> we have to be very careful
9:43 am
