five american prisoners captured in iran are making their way home this weekend. their release came just hours after the u-s government lifted sanctions against the iran as part of the nuclear deal. richard engel reports on a dramatic weekend of developments. the breakthrough was announced here in vienna, and diplomats here are calling this implementation day. the day the iran deal came into efect, the day iran was welcomed back to international markets. it seemed like a sweetener in a nuclear deal worth billions to iran. and for five americans, it was sweet indeed: they were finally freed. "we've received confirmation that five americans that had been unjustly detained in iran have been released from custody." among those released: amir hekmati, a former marine, held over 4 long years, accused of aiding a hostile country. saeed abedini, a christian

"it seems like a dream. it's something we've been hoping for and praying for." jason rezaian, the washington post's tehran-based correspondent, accused of working to undermine the regime, held often in solitary confinement for a year and a half. "it's spectacular news, we're so happy - can't wait to see him." the washington post in a statement said "we couldn't be happier to hear the news." matt trevithick - a student held for 40 days - was also released. in exchange: the us agreed to drop charges against seven iranians imprisoned in the united states. while the prisoner swap is technically unrelated to the nuclear deal, critics had denounced washington for signing any agreement while tehran held americans. and hours after the swap was announced, the nuclear deal, over two years in the making, did move ahead. "iran has carried out all necessary measures under the agreement." at least 2 americans are still believed to be held or missing

who were released today are expected to eventually make their way to germany for medical checkups before heading home. richard engel, nbc news, vienna. the iranian president called the lifting of nuclear sanctions a victory for his country. while addressing parliament in tehran, hassan rouhani hailed this as a "historic day" and said the deal proved that constructive engagement with the world was the right path. the agreement aimed to severely restri tehran's capability of producing nuclear weapons. the move lifts billions of dollars of economic sanctions on iran. the deal with iran has its share of critics.. new jersey governor chris christie is one of them. the presidential candidate is on a three day swing through iowa. in a one on one interview, christie told our political director dave price -- that iran's action serves as a reminder that they can not be trusted... we are obviously very happy for

be home but i also wanna hear what the other side of the deal is. if this president is releasing more terrorists from guantanamo to go back and reenter the war on terror then i'm going to be very concerned about that. we shouldnt have to swap prisoners, these folks were taking illegally in violation of international law, they should be released without condition. the iranians have treated this president with disrespect for years and he continues to take it. i would not take it as president. price: with presidents overtures towards iran does that do nothing long term do foster some potentially better relations? christie: if you think you are dealing decent people on the other side. for years these people were chanting death to america and funding hezbollah and hamas. what indication to do we hav of still waiting to see the mysterious iranian moderates, we havent seen them yet... it seems like they have a pretty good handle on their country and the mulas are running things. so no i dont think this is a smart move at all, the onl things the iranians haveever respected is strength and thats what we

"then the best thing to do is

get the help anyway, especially if your car won't start." if the car does still work -- run the engine intermittently... not constantly. 10 to 15 minutes every hour to keep yourself warm. check your tailpipe -- make sure it's not clogged to prevent a carbon monoxide buildup. and of course -- make sure you're stocked up. "blankets, spare batteries for flash lights, maybe something to drink, maybe something to eat." even a basic shovel can make a difference. when you are stranded in your car -- moving your arms and legs from time to time... can help with circulation. but you'll want to avoid doing too much physical activity since cold weather puts a strain on your heart.

change the democratic one of a her managed-care system in other words it would be a very big effort. 565,400 people rely on that system and so far it has not been sealed viewed. smooth. hospital said slow this thing down and the reynolds can't figure out how this will save the tens of millions of dollars the administration claims it will. i asked lieutenant governor if she understands why iowans what iowans have concerns about this major transition. >> the fact is we have continued to put money into medicaid. it's has grown by because grown
9:13 am
coordinate care to make sure individuals have better outcomes, get healthy and that's the only way we're going to be able to bring stability to the major medicaid budget. we've already decided if we don't move forward with going to decide a frequent fund medicaid or or education because it there's only so many dollars available. >> moving forward how will we as taxpayers know if we are providing adequate care for these folks? what are the measures. >> the private providers have measures they have to make your dhs and department of human servicesill have plans in place in the legislature last year actually pledge and oversight component and i know there they're possibly looking at putting in place some additional oversight.
9:14 am
micromanage what they had to do. it's not based on based on visits to the emergency ward at it's on how they get their money so it really is about coordinated care. a lot of individuals who are using the system have four or five different providers and that they all operate in conflict so they are having reactions and diagnoses that don't really coordinate so this system will better manage that we have managed care, you have managed care, a lot of people in the private sector do so why wouldn't we want them to have that same kind of care. >> the governor talked about how you're going to change this new state agency plan. to my knowledge it doesn't have the new cool name or plan so what is the goal and what are you going to try to do? >> we talk about $12 billion the new private capital investment in the state of state of iowa
9:15 am
expanding and growing, not only is our central location and amazing work workforce but a lot of it has to be with our low cost of energy. we want to make sure we maintain the competitiveness and take a look at the challenges and opportunities and resources, infrastructure, we want to look at efficiency measures that we can put in place but the bottom line is we have to look at what our opportunities are in the future so we can make sure we maintain our low cost advantages so we can maintain the economy. >> you said to maintain a couple of times are there a few areas where this will expand beyond that? >> we have hired an outside consultant across the state of iowa and wear for working groups that we have four working groups
9:16 am
structured resources and efficiencies and conservation methods so it is the hope that everything is on the table and we look at how we look forward and how we can continue to be a leader in renewable energy, continue to provide a low cost of energy and make recommendations for strategies or policies that may be the legislature will had to take a look at but i think the governor said right now 30 percent of our electricity is generated from wind. we are starting to see more and more solar. washington iowa has some great statistics on solar energy and he said we could possibly be the first state where 40 percent of our electricity is generated by wind by 2020. we could continue to be the leader in the nation not only in renewable energy but in providing low costs of energy so
tv-commercial
9:17 am
advantage for us and that is one of the reasons i think when we look at facebook and google one of the reasons that look at iowa is because they want at that renewable piece to be part of their green portfolio so distant grades opportunity to be a leader in that area. >> the governor has had some pretty serious reservations about ted cruz. do you share some of those concerns and is iowans should we be concerned that he will not support some of these things like this task force? >> i would think he would want to look at that also and i think as a country we need to be competitive and we it's a global economy and we all need to be doing what we see and i think we're going to see most of the initiatives and most of the success especially with the dysfunction that we're seeing that the federal level that's where we are seeing economies going.

9:21 am
i was recently in new hampshire which is where my husband is this week. he was in iowa last week and i spoke to a forum on drug addiction and prevention and we talked a lot about what we would share but the reason we decided we should talk about it is because there are so many other people dealing with this problem. there are a lot of people who are afraid to talk about it. we can't be afraid to talk about it. it is an epidemic in this nation. we lose too many young people. i am a cancer survivor but there are lots of other people going through this. i think people get to know you through the tough times and the tragedies. not just the tough times and the tragedies. i want people to trust me i want
9:22 am
>> i think especially when you have such a big field like you do a lot of the national conversation is going to be very poll driven. very few people are trying to start here how the surge of some sorts come sort come down and recover. >> your you had a good debate. these polls are so imprecise. the margins of error are so huge and if polls at this point were predictive, we would have had a president howard dean, a president rudy giuliani, we would've already had of president clinton. we would never have had a president ronald reagan.
9:23 am
before election? i don't know why we put so much faith in polls. there there's so much evidence to there is so much evidence to prove that suggests they are imprecise and misleading. >> people pay a lot of money for them. >> we know the people of iowa have a lot to say about who was going to be their president the people of iowa who show up and caucus know they have a lot to say about that so what has happened in iowa over and over and over again is somebody has surprised. i think there will be another surprise coming out of iowa. >> we will find out two weeks and one day from now up next

9:26 am
out of the room and an iowa republican has visited donald trump and if you're a for some reason they found him wanting. i think the coronation of donald trump is done little bit a little bit much. 75 percent of republicans or someplace else. i think as people move away from cruise i don't think many of them will move to trump i think they go elsewhere and rubio is a logical place to pick that up. >> trump is giving into him on this being bored in canada thing, he's got huckabee super pack huckabee personally got santorum doing it at governor branstad doing it erin branstad doing it hitting him on ethanol and immigration. he's getting it from so many angles where would his folks go? >> it's like chip chip chip his guys are working on ted cruz and they will go all over the place

o'malley but the numbers would show it here. what is fascinating as you had clinton so much over bernie sanders earlier than it tightened and in some polls he saw sanders move up. clinton had that great time that great debate joe biden doesn't run in the benghazi hearings were she did well and you saw the spread come back and now she is all but gone so what happened? >> hillary clinton has gone pretty high negatives in our state. there are a lot of democrats who have doubts and reservations about her for one reason or another. secondly, america is on fire in both parties. you have a surge in the trump campaign and on the progressive side in the spectrum bernie sanders has given voice to this so she is sort of a victim of beg an old face and at the same time when democrats progressives are really outraged by obama's presidency and they want to change and bernie has picked that up.
9:29 am
will be key be the obama of 2008? >> i don't think so. i don't think he is as well-organized as obama was. obama may have had a surprise being able to find young people and turn them out. sanders has a decent organization but i don't think it's going to go that way. >> in your gut sanders or clinton? >> i don't want to go on that one. i think it's going to be close. school water plan we want to give dave's dave's take on what's happening with the new marco rubio. he ran for senate saying he opposed amnesty... then he flipped, and worked with liberal chuck schumer to co-author the path to citizenship bill. he threatened to vote against it. and then voted for it. he supported his own dream act and then he abandoned it. marco rubio.

as we start this new session i'm curious about the way about his compromised school funding idea. there were a lot of legislators that were surprised but that does that have to carry over to this year? >> sure it does. it'll make it difficult for him to carry off another deal. once a politician has come off as having betrayed some but it really makes it different difficult to i think it's going to have trouble putting a deal together. >> will he i have some of the money that goes to schools and some of the money that goes to water quality? >> it's interesting that tom bill ville sack showed up given the little air cover and i think that helps it governor branstad's point with that.

state. number one his got this trust problem, number two he's extended views tended to side with rural people on this and they distrust was up to but the solution to that water problem is technology and structure. it's scrunched up a lot of water treatment plants plans and programs to get that stuff out of the water and that costs bucks so if you don't want to do it terry branstad wants to duke's going to be up to somebody to come up with a solution and you don't want to be seen as raising any taxes. >> do you see any difference in the way he governs in this term than he did earlier in his career? would some complain that it is more boom boom boom this is what we are going to do? >> it's more like the -asterisk his way or the highway he tried to be much more accommodating. you will notice even here he

groups and get a lot of people on board and that is being a good consensus thing but on the other hand he's got to force the issue and that is where they come down. i think he is trying harder but he may have made a real tactical error. >> he convinced them to go along with that sales tax to go along with the fuel tax. is there was some of them did there going to hear about fact that election. i think the governor is going to be that the tough one a tough one.
