7:03 am
an ultimatum frto republicans fm trump himself. the president wants an up or down vote now and if it fails trump is prepared to leave obamacare in place and move on to other priorities. >> this is the only train leaving the station that's going to be repealing obamacare and giving us an alternative to replace . >> reporter: speaker paul ryan emerging with a declaration, the vote is on. >> promising the american people we will repeal, replace this broken law because it's collapsing and failing families and tomorrow we're proceeding. >> reporter: but republicans remain divided over their replacement plan. >> this is not a repeal. this is a patchwork fix. >> reporter: they'd planned to vote thursday on the seventh anniversary of obamacare being signed into law but as the hours ticked by, no deal. >> we don't want to get overly optimistic. >> reporter: the president and vice president working the phone hosting skeptical conservatives at the white house. trump first getting a standing ovation. but
7:04 am
the closer in chief unable to make a deal. >> there are not enough votes as of 1:30. >> reporter: do you think you'll be able to get this done ultimately. >> we always try to get to yes but -- >> not today. >> i think it would be a mistake to move forward today. >> reporter: shortly hosting truckers to talk health care at the white house the president was confident the vote would happen. >> we'll see what happens. >> reporter: but just minutes later that vote was canceled. now, as for what republicans will be voting on, the new version of the bill in addition to rolling back the medicaid expansion and using tax credits to buy insurance also no longer requires insurance companies to cover basic health services like maternity care, mental health treatment and even ambulance, but this morning it is still not clear if republicans have the vote to pass it. george. >> okay, mary, thanks. the big question now to the president's point man on health care, he was up on capitol hill late io
7:05 am
white house budget director mick mulvaney. do you have the votes? >> don't know. that's up to the house to count their own votes. the president made his final pitch last night. made it clear we're all on the same page. the republicans all want the same thing. they want to get rid of obamacare and give people the control and the options that they want, the quality that they
7:06 am
the latest poll from quinnipiac shows 56% disapprove this bill, only 17% support it. >> george, that always changes. i think i have a higher approval rating now than when i was in congress because i'm not in congress anymore. people still know what it means back home. the folks who are on obamacare and iowa is one of them know it means you can afford have to health insurance but can't go to the doctor. today is the day to change it. >> you have that latest score from the cbo shows this is not going to add coverage or bring premiums down anymore but add $200 billion to the deficit. >> keep in mind that the cbo does not score the other things that are already going on, what tom price is doing at hhs, the other legislation that we're pushing and, by the way, the cbo score is just wrong adding to the deficit because if it does it could not reconcile in the senate so that last part is probably not correct. >> it would reduce the deficit by $200 billion less than the previous plan. one of the promises made to the
7:07 am
this will do away with the requirement that policies cover essential health benefits like maternity care, pediatric care, treatment for mental health and addiction problems, yet, the full impact of this isn't even going to be shown to the house members before they vote today. is that right? >> keep in mind on that first piece, states still have the ability to do that. in fact, many states do. i talked to many of my republican friends on the hill last night, in fact, we talked a lot of my republican friends including in the white house and probably had more people through here in the last week than president obama had in eight years but one thing they kept pointing out if they're from states that offer those already the federal government is not changing that. states still have the ability to offer those essential health benefits. what we're doing is taking the federal mandates away. >> what's at stake today? how important is this win to the president? >> i think it's very important. the president wants to get rid of obamacare. he's looked at the republicans in the house and said, look, you've had seven year
7:08 am
on this. now is the time. say what you will about donald trump. this is not an ordinary politician. he wants to do it and do it now and also wants to move on to things like tax reform, infrastructure, restructuring the government, putting people back to work and not willing to wait the seven months an ordinary president would. that's the message i delivered on his behalf and i hope the republicans were listening. i they were. >> reports in "the new york times" the president is having second thoughts and thinks he should have done that first. >> i can assure you that conversation never came up. we promised to do it first. we're going to do it first. today is the chance in if you fail is it going to be that much hard story get it done because you won't have that $900 billion in revenue that you are getting from this bill? >> george, i've heard that a couple of different types. tax reform will also have to be reconcilable and will have to lower the deficit on its own and it will trn on its own two feet and just as importantly the tax
7:09 am
president's working on now. when you see tax reform the first time it will be the president's plan and will drive the debate on ha. >> you don't know if you have the votes right now. how comfortable accident are you president trump can close the deal? >> i have a lot of confidence in the president. i've seen him talk -- like i said, more members in the last couple of days of both parties by the way and had democrat, republicans, conservative, moderates and everybody through the white house. i think we had 100 members of congress to the white house yesterday. the president's a tremendous salesperson and tremendous closer. i would pts count him out. >> director mulvaney, thanks for your time. >> thanks. >> let's bring in matthew dowd and cecilia vega. guts to call for that vote not knowing if he has the votes. >> i was struggling by your interview. two different things. the first thing was that what he said at the end which is no longer is tax reform tied to this, which is basically an acknowledgement that they could lose this and still try to do tax reform is the first time they've said that and the second
7:10 am
the beginning of this when he basically said it's not up to us, the house counts the vote, leadership counts the votes so sort of point the fingers if we lose again it's not our problem. the problem they have, this is a political game of jenga. if they pull this out and it doesn't work all the other pieces for them fall. >> cecilia, the white house pulling out all the stops today. but you're not completely convinced the vote will actually take place. >> reporter: no, george. in fact, what i'm hearing the president is negotiating feverishly behind the scenes. i'm told he was on the phone for 45 minutes with speaker paul ryan last night. we know he had a lot of phone calls and has been having meetings here at the white house. look, the white house is certainly trying to project this air of confidence going into this vote. from what i'm hearing, though, from people involved in these actual negotiations that little of confidence doesn't necessarily exist inside behind closed doors. this is a sense the vote might actually not happen today if they're not able to round up the numbers and what from i hear the numbers are really
7:11 am
now. >> it is so close, could go either way so, matt, you talked about the states and political jenga game. how does he recover if he doesn't get the votes. >> it is a huge problem and probably ruins his entire first 100 days which is already been problematic in here. i think what it does, it makes tax reform almost impossible. it makes the budget very difficult. it makes infrastructure plan he has tried to say he wants to do soon, put it in danger. it basically is a domino effect and if he loses this all the other dominos of the things he wants to get done are almost impossible. >> cecilia, even if he wins a tough road ahead in the senate for this health care bill. >> reporter: this is not a done deal. even if it passes today they still have a huge hurdle ahead of them and everything is on the line for just the perception of this white house, he ran as negotiator in chief. his book is "the art of the deal" and pulled up a couple of chap
7:12 am
to walk away from the deal. this is why he put the ultimatum down and laid it out the night before. everything is on the line. this is his first big piece of legislation, if this one doesn't pass everything going forward is tainted for this white house. >> big day ahead and we'll break do you know all the fallout sunday on "this week." thanks to you both. amy. >> turning to london and new arrests overnight in that deadly terror attack. authorities taking two more people into custody as isis calls the attacker their soldier. our chief foreign correspondent terry moran is in london with all of those new details. good morning to you, terry. >> reporter: good morning, amy. the focus today on the investigation into the attacker identified as khalid masood, british authorities are digging into his lock history of islamist radicalization looking to see if they missed any signs and if family, friends and associates were in on the plot. new images today of the moments of terror in london. you see the chaos and confusion as prime minister theresa may is hustled to
7:13 am
her gars with weapons drawn in this video from the "sun" newspaper. these pictures of the attacker moments after he was taken down by police. this morning we're learning more about him, the man responsible for this deadly terror attack in the heart of london. authorities say 52-year-old khalid masood was a british citizen born adrian russelajoa living in birmingham where investigators are seen collecting evidence. masood had been investigated for ties to violent islamic extremism a decade ago after his conversion. in 2003 they concluded he posed a low risk. isis now calling him a soldier. overnight thousands gathering in london's trafalgar square to pay tribute to the victims. and the death toll is rising. a 75-year-old man succumbing to his in
7:14 am
so now four killed in the attack. over 40 injured from 11 different countries. among the deceased veteran police officer keith palmer who gave his life protecting parliament. this might be the last image of him taken with a u.s. tourist just moments before he was stabbed by the attacker. and an american, kurt cochran of utah, 54, a musician visiting london with his wife melissa celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. >> the only word i could really describe it as is surreal. he did live his dream and not a lot of people get to do that. >> reporter: the roads are open again, parliament is back in business. london is back defiantly. amy. >> terry, authorities have said masood acted as a lone wolf. but if that's the case why so many other arests in this? >> reporter: that's an excellent question, amy. there have been eight arests so far. two of them last night that authorities have said are significant. it does seem the more that they dig into his
7:15 am
they are finding perhaps more involved in the plot. >> terry moran, thanks. back here at home we have severe storms on the move. ginger has the latest. >> that's right. more than 70bf severe storm reports including this large hail in iowa. but look at this video this morning. on the cold side of this system we have blizzard warnings in colorado. that is what it looks like, visibility incredibly reduced. especially along i-25, limon in the blizzard warning along the palmer ridge, 5 to 10 inches of snow. a ton of wind alerts that go to lafayette, louisiana. conway, arkansas, in there, the front side or warm side of the storm this afternoon will produce severe weather. damaging wind and hail, the main threat, but you could see an isolated tornado anywhere in that yellow region. much more to come, michael. >> thank you, ginger. now to the big dance overnight xavier taking home a huge sweet 16 upset and there were some other nail-biting close calls out there and paula fa
7:16 am
highlights. hey, paula. >> my heart is still palpitating. this is what it's about. three of last night's games, they went down to the final shot. to the final seconds and this morning we're talking about that david versus goliath match-up. xavier versus arizona and xavier doing what few thought was possible. overnight the upset of the tournament, the 11 seed xavier musketeers stunning the number two seed, arizona. >> that's it. xavier. >> reporter: accepting the wildcats packing, a team more than 12 million brackets thought would advance to the elite eight. >> scores. >> reporter: xavier's defense keeping arizona from scoring for the last three minutes, earning their first trip to the elite eight since 2008. was this fan their good luck charm? bill murray in the crowd to cheer on his son who is an assistant coach for the musketeers. as the first four teams pped their tickets to the elite eight reminders that the road is paved with broken brackets and lined

>> ooh. >> reporter: it's game over for michigan. this year's cinderella team, the wolverines hoping for their eighth consecutive win since their plane ran off the runway dropping a heartbreaker to oregon at the buzzer. >> for the elite eight, no. >> i had a good look at the basket and just didn't drop for me. >> reporter: number one seed gonzaga advancing over west virginia. >> goodness! >> reporter: the game a nail-biter to the very end but with 40 seconds left, west virginia missing three three-pointers in a row. >> miles now. clock expires and the game is over. >> reporter: some on social media calling it the worst possession ever. and posting memes like these. so four more games tonight, winners advance to the elite eight. as for xavier, they will play gonzaga saturday night. if they win this will be their first trip to the final four. >> was that
7:18 am
bell air" meme? carlton. >> a shot only a mother could love. >> bill murray being a lucky charm. they have a real good luck charm. >> they do and actually have what amounts to be a glass urn of ashes. let me explain. i'm sure your coves did some weird things but chris mack the head coach had an awful february, okay, you guys, they were playing poorly so printed out copies of the february schedule with the team's record, handed them out to each player and said white on the back something you're willing to sacrifice from here on out and burned all of those calendars in the locker room in a metal trash can, those ashes now on display throughout the tournament. seems to be their good luck charm. >> i know. okay. let's head to ginger with more fires, unfortunately, in the south. >> the fire garfield fire 600 acres burned just west of jacksonville and say they have it under control but more in the

eight carries on with four big match-ups. big night of march madness ahead. now to that desperate search for missing teens in washington, d.c. nearly a dozen black and latina girls reported missing in recent days and authorities are now trying to raise awareness. abc's linsey davis is in washington with the very latest on this story. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, amy. this is a story line that primarily gained traction online and there are those in social media who say that tom brady's missing jersey got more coverage than these missing girls but d.c. police say it's not a matter more girs are missing but simply doing a better job of getting the word out when people do go missing. these are the alarming posts catching the attention of social media users. a series of tweets by washington, d.c. police asking to help find nearly a dozen black teenage girls reported missing over the course of just three days. >> all of a sudden we have a lot
7:32 am
>> reporter: they are among 38 people in total listed as missing. some of them described as citically missing on d.c.'s metropolitan police site. many of them young blacks or latino teenage girls. >> if we have a child missing it should be known there is a possibility that -- >> reporter: hundreds of concerned citizens packed an emotional town hall meeting wednesday night worried all these vanished teens represent a disturbing spike in crime and questioning if plaque and latino girls are being targeted. >> we can't go nowhere by ourselves. we can't do nothing because we have to worry about somebody trying to take us. >> reporter: but city officials explain there aren't more missing teen, there's just more awareness. part of a new effort by a police department often accused of overlooking cases of missing people of color. >> i just implemented a process to ensure that all critical missing persons receive the same level of police service and media attention. >> reporter: according to d.c.
7:33 am
police, all 38 people currently missing walked away voluntarily. and four of the eight in the initial tweet that garnered so much attention have since been located but the concern is that those are still missing may now be in real danger. >> when they go missing, guess what, you have a child out there and there are people in our community that will prey on those children. >> reporter: the concern is if authorities don't publicize their cases, they could end up like 8-year-old relisha rudd. until a few weeks ago she was the only missing person on the site after she vanished three years ago this month. her mother spoke to a local station at the time. >> come back home to your mother safely in her home and i love you. >> reporter: seen here just days before her disappearance, many felt her case didn't get enough coverage. she has never been found. >> that community had no idea that this was an issue that was going on in their own
7:34 am
and by the police being transparent and putting out all missing person cases, it brings about awareness. >> many of these cases don't end up rising to the level of an amber alert and that's something that some in the black community point to as a sign that when black children go missing they don't get the same attention and coverage as when white children go missing but the police chief here points out that under the current guidelines an amber alert can only be issued if it's believed that the child has been abducted or that they are in imminent danger of injury or death. amy. >> all right, linsey, thank you. joining us now is abc consultant brad garrett and sunny hostin. thank you both for being with us. brad, residents in d.c. understandably alarmed at this news. what stands out to you about this particular case or these cases? >> well, one of the keys, amy, is actually figuring out and the police chief alluded to it as to who is actually in deep
7:35 am
while they're missing. 2,000 kids go missing today. 800,000 a year, the vast majority within hours or days are found. so you've got to sort out where can these kids potentially be. and are they in harm's way. and that's going to be the real key and does take a lot of energy to get to that end point. >> we mentioned residents are alarmed but they're also understandably outraged at the lack of attention this story, these stories often get. why the discrepancy? >> well, there certainly is a disparity between when you have a missing person of color and a missing white person. missing white woman's syndrome, the term was coined when there is a missing person of color but i think it starts in the way that they are classified. if someone is classified as a runaway they certainly don't get media attention. they do not get police attention. they need to be classified very, very quickly as either missing or
7:36 am
get the media attention that is needed. >> so it starts with law enforcement. >> i do believe that it starts with law enforcement and this mislabeling between runaway and missing makes them more susceptible to human sex trafficking. 40% of people that are missing are in this human sex trade but because they aren't covered, these cases aren't covered it makes them more susceptible to being taken. >> so disturbing, brad, given what sunny said what can investigators do to find them given the amount of time that's transpired? >> the key with kids this age are social media and phones. that's how they communicate. i'm going to guess if they still have access to either one of those, they're going to communicate with people that are in their circle. the real key is going to be for the police to have a network amongst social media, amongst their relatives and every commonplace this child has a history, because let's face it a 13-year-old or 14-year-old doesn't have a ways and means of protecting
7:37 am
anything and so they're going to be connected to someone. >> all right. we certainly hope these families get their answer, brad garrett, sunny hostin, thank you both for joining us this morning and we'll send it over to michael now. >> amy, coming up in just two minutes that high school freshman who jumped into action to save his friend's life.

7:41 am
>> the student jumps right in and starts a quick intervention with those abdominal thrusts in the heimlich maneuver and definitely saves this kid's life. >> reporter: choking is the fourth leading cause of unintentional accidental death and the heimlich maneuver is credited with saving over 100,000 lives since the technique was created in 1974. and this morning, misdemeanor are crediting brown's quick action for saving a life. >> we can all say that he did an excellent job at taking that initiative. >> all right. and it's good to have reminders, been around since 1974. how about a fresher course. i have this training vest on, choking training vest. ginger is going to help me out and be my rescuer. >> i'll do my best. >> you see somebody choking. >> they make this gesture. first tell somebody to call 911. you want to help them out. i'll help ginger do it. you want to tilt them over and hit them in the back between the rib cage giving moo he a good pop. you need to do that to dislodge it. if that doesn't work

8:42 am
la-z-boy for his office and it didn't fit and brought it home and put it in the middle of the living room because that's what i look like when i'm watching television behind him. because he says that it should be the greatest experience when you're watching -- we have like a projector screen so put it in the center of the living room which, well, it looks like a chair in the middle of the living room. it shouldn't face the other piece of furniture but he doesn't think so. >> was he funny or being serious. >> it's there. it is currently there. >> but he looks so happy in that chair. >> i know that's why i can't just move it. >> oh, you know what i mean, look how happy he is. >> for the rest of our wives, i'd be moving that thing. >> listen, i'm losing the battle and winning the war, okay. but -- currently he really does enjoy it and it's like a sick this zero gravity la-z-boy and so he does get really comfortable in it. it's hard for me to just like rip it out of his -- >> be that girl. >> you don't have to g
8:43 am
back. >> i have considered it but don't know much more what i could do. could put another la-z-boy next to it but there's way too much furniture and i can't really -- don't know what to do. i'll just spice it up with a floral throw pillow or something. >> i got something for you to do. >> tell me. >> it was on buzzfeed. you had this comedian justin couson. tried to get his roommate to clean up and he just refewed so he made it some passive aggressive art. he made it passive aggressive art gallery and post it. here, for example. that is -- you can have this for $3400, a sour cream covered spoon left in the sink before leaving town for four days. [ applause ] >> here's another one. see that. for $700, this forgotten milk left to actively go rancid in fridge far beyond sell by date. so, there you go.
8:44 am
>> that's genius. >> what would you do with the la-z-boy? >> i have no idea. first of all it's a great chair. i can't throw it out but it just doesn't belong in the center of the room. >> cow decorate it not with pillows but really embarrassing pictures. >> the problem is he doesn't -- he likes to embarrass himself. he does it all the time. that's like his calling card so i can't -- literally he's impenetrable but it's so silly in the center of the room. he's so cute. what do you do? you know. >> we tried. you're on your own. >> there's got to be compromise. maybe like six months of the year he can keep it there and six months i turn it to the side where people put furniture. >> you have two little girls at home. delta and lincoln. got some applause. how impress reasonable doubt they that mom is in "frozen." >> they could care less. it's in our dna to reject everything your parents do. it's part of how you assimilate with the larger tribe and how we get along
8:45 am
know but whenever i try to sing at home they go, no, mommy, stop. >> seriously. >> i'm glad i know it happens to you too in they're not happy. >> do their friends think it's cool? >> yeah, sometimes at school because they play it when they wake up from naps and stuff and come up -- but the problem is, kids don't really get it when they're old enough to get it 10 they're over it because they're over everything. when they're young they don't understand it so it's like when i meet parents with kids it's always the parents going, do you know who that is and the kid is like -- >> what, no. >> they're like. >> that's anna in "frozen" then you watch this beautiful bubble pop because they are like, no, no, she's a cartoon. she's not real. and then they're like, well, get a picture with her and the kids like, okay. it's this very strange -- i don't know. i have conflicted emotions about it. >> well, there's no conflicted emotions about the "chips" movie. it is so great. for those, it is so fun and we have a clip of you in action. let's take a look.

8:47 am
really annoyed me in our last 10 years of marriage. >> la-z-boy. >> right. i'll put those all into like a coke bottle, pop a mentos in there, shake it up and that volcano will be karen. >> that's great. >> that was my -- >> 15 times. that's so impressive. >> well, he's really nice. >> he's a daredevil too. >> he's the biggest daredevil, yeah. he's addicted to adrenaline. >> are you okay with that. >> yes, because -- >> i'm so sorry. >> my mom just texted me from compton and said get her off the stage. so i can continue to watch my show. that's enough. you showed your boobs on tv. >> thank you. >> okay. all right. let's go. can we go, okay, let's roll. okay, let's go.
