4:00 pm
unless they've gone through a vetting procedure to have it taken off the no strike list as a religious site. we don't know the full answer to the status of that building when they hit it. >> barbara, thanks for joining us. that's it for me. thanks for watching. erin burnett starts "out front" right now. >> out front next, the breaking news. the president claiming victory on health care tonight but is the gop bill headed ford failure in the senate plus jim thome back on capitol hill hill today. trump heading to his golf club in new jersey tonight right after appearing on the intrepid right here in manhattan. good evening. i'm erin burnett. "out front" tonight breaking news. president trump claiming victory. his long-promised health care bill passing the house in a vote and the president immediately capitalizing on the moment.
4:01 pm
the president made major promises to america. >> yes, premiums will be coming down. yes, deductibles will be coming down. le. >> premiums down, ducts down. those are big promises. those are words that will live on long past tonight and could make or break trump's presidency. he also went on to make this pass. >> we're going to gets this passed through the senate. i feel so confident. >> without the senate voting yes, today's victory will be very fleeting. trump's health care push would be a massive failure in that case. that's a real risk. one said zero. lindsay graham said it should be viewed with caution. another measure of bitterness.
4:02 pm
school yards behavior from democrats channelsing to republicans that their yes votes will cost them their seats in the 2018 election. >> chanting goodbye. right now this is a live picture of the president about to appear this hourp on the u.s. intrepid. trump returned to his home town for the first time since inauguration. as you see there he's getting off the airplane. jeff, obviously, this is a huge night for the president, his first trip back to new york on the heels of a victory lap in wash this afternoon. >> it is indeerksd erin. it's been about 107 days sins he's been in manhattan. the longest stretch he's spent
4:03 pm
outside of the city in his entire life, if you can believe that. he meets here with the prime minister of australia. it's clear he still has domestic politics on his mind. >> president trump savoring a victory tonight. >> the bill is passed. >> the first major legislative victory. >> this is a repeal and replace of obama care. make no mistake about it. make no mistake. and i think most importantly, yes, premiums will be coming down, yes, deductibles will be come down. >> the president taking an imfront u victory lap in the rose garden surrounded by house republicans who narrowly pass the plan to remake america's health care system. new promises to voters. >> as far as i'm concerned, your premiums, they're going to start to come down. we're going to get this passed
4:04 pm
through the senate. i feel so confident. >> presidential promises on health care can be hard to keep. just ask president obama. >> if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor tunld reform proposals we put forward. >> under his watch democrats lost control of the house and senate largely over health care. the health care debate now a mirror image from eight years ago with republicans trying to make big on one of their biggest campaign promises. >> we suffered with obama care. i went through two years of campaigning and i'm telling you, no matter where i went, people were suffering so badly with the ravages of obama care. >> the president basquing in the moment. vindication from failing to pass the bill nor than a month earlier.
4:05 pm
he delayed a trim to new york for a few hours to meet with the australian prime minister turnbull. >> i thought you needed a little more time, they always told me. more time, but we didn't. >> so it's clear that the president had a smile on his face, a bounce in his step there, but regardless of what happens with this health care bill, erin it is not a stretch say the midterm elections of 2018 started right now. the promises he made in the rose garden, he's unable to make sure he'll be able to hold occupy up to those or not. the first time i've seen a ceremony like that after a bill pa passed the house. >> in it doesn't pass the
4:06 pm
senate, it's dead. phil, that is the big question, of course. for the president to be vindicated in what he did today with that big ceremony and big celebration, this must pass the senate. what will happen when it gets there? >> that's exactly right. there's no signing ceremony when it's only a third of the way through. not because democratic opposition is there, it's there. however, the same republicans have made clear they are rewriting major portions, all of the central components of the house health care bill sent over to their way. the medicare spanks. structure of tax credits is going to change. most importantly, the agreement the deal that clinched the house bill, this mcarthur aimed the provisions that allow stating to opt out of two central obama care regular layings, all that
4:07 pm
could change and you still have a very, very difficult conference in the senate just amongst falcons trying to figure out the path forward. not only do you have to worry about the senate, then you have to worry about the house having to come back and vote on whatever the snetd does. it gets more complicated going forward, really. one step in a multi-step process that's going to undo the things that americans fought so hard on. >> thanks, phil mattingly. the central aspect of the mcarthur amendment. tom mcarthur, his amendment is the major reason it passed. congressman i appreciate you being with me tonight. a lot of the credit goes to you. you're the one who came in and got this amendment, got the freedom caucus on board. it gave states the ability to opt out of certain blefts and have premiums charged to people with preexisting conditions.
4:08 pm
are you afraid they'll throw it out? >> hi and good evening. i'm focused first on getting the bill through the house and trying to fix what that essential problem here. the obama care marketplace is falling apart and if we don't fix it, then the millions of people that depend on it today will have nothing. we have 23 million people today with no insurance, to me, it's just impossible to ignore the problem that's in front of us. the senate now is going to face the same questions that we faced. how do we keep our promise, promise the most vulnerable people and also bring the cost down. >> some people have preexisting conditions, and i understand this amendment would allow insurers to charge them different rates. is the reality not that under
4:09 pm
this bill with your amendment, some of the people, the most vulnerable among us will not be able to afford health insurance? >> i think you have to step back and realize that where we are today, markets are collapsing and people sl less and less choices. iowa announced today that 94 of their 99 counties have no choice, no choice. what do you do with preexisting conditions they can? the way i approach this, all right, and i've talked about this before publicly, but i have seen the effect of no insurance. i saw it in my own home when will my mother died and my father had no insurance. it took him decades to pay off those bills. he didn't pay them off until i was in college. i took that perspective with me every day. we have to provide an environment where people can afford insurance. that's today's environment. rates are sky rocketing. the only way you can bring down premiums for some, for most, and
4:10 pm
care for people with preexisting conditions is to cover people with the most serious medical needs in separate tools that are paid on the blauder shoulders of the taxpayer, not by other policy holders. that's basically what my amendment does. >> at the heart of this, right, the president said today in the rose garden, you were all there, that premiums would come down and duktdblees would come down. you're now saying the same thing but is that true? it doesn't seem it's going to be true for everybody. that's not how the math works, if you have an open insurance market, which is what they're creating. is he going to live to regret those words? >> well, i don't think so. what we said to the states was if you create a risk pool to help the very people, erin, that you're talking about, people with the worst situations, if you create that risk pool then we'll let you have this waiver.
4:11 pm
and what happens when people are covered in these risk pools and we've set aside $130 billion to help states do it, then they're taken care of and everyone else's premiums can come down. >> obviously, i remember with obama care, right, premiums would come down. we all know they didn't. they went up an average of 24 mischaracterize. this is something that caused the democrats to lose the house and senate. they were quick to warn you and your colleagues that your votes could cost you your seat. the house leader nancy pelosi went to the house floor and here's what she said. >> you have every provision of this bill tattooed on your forehead. you whether glow in the dark on this one. >> you heard democrats chanting "goodbye." goodbye to your seats is what they meant.
4:12 pm
>> this is not a day for cheering or jeering, in my mind. this is the day to realize we're facing a serious issue with health care in this country. i do not allow myself to look at this through a political lens. i represented one of the few swing districts in this country. i'm certainly politically aware but this is much bigger than seats and politics. this is about people's lives and we have to do the right thing by them. >> i hear what you're saying. people on the other side think they're doing that. the vote was not one single democrat voted for this. so did this did completely appear to be partisan. >> that's too bad. i initially voted no when this process was set up. i was one of nine republicans to vote no back in january and that's one of the reasons i voted no. hi thought it was a process that was being a bit rushed and didn't think to include
4:13 pm
democrats. once the process went forbid, everybody like me had a choice, are we going to be obstructionists or are we going to work to make this a better bill. and that's what i'm focused on. >> all right. i appreciate your time tonight. thank you. >> thank you. >> up next, james tomi's testimony to congress behind closed doors today. a man who repeatedly slammed trump's character prior to the election. why is he supporting him now. and jeanne moos. why was julia lieuy dreyfuss to blame? access code to use the atm.

. breaking news. donald trump claiming the first major legislative victory of his presidency. right there on your screen, the president is there. that is the uss sbrept in new york. he's just arrived there. he'll be giving a speech tonight. trump promised that as good as the plan already is, it will get even better, he said. >> this is a great plan. i actually think it will get even better and this is, make no mistake, this is a repeal and a replace of obama care. make no mistake about it. make no mistake. >> so what exactly is in the plan? jessica snyder is out front front. this is the crucial question now. it goes to the senate.
4:18 pm
this could in some close form become the law of the land that affects every single person watching in this country. insurers can't deny people with preexisting conditions under the plan but there could be changes, right? >> right. there could be big expensive changes for folks with bri preexisting conditions. the state could seek waivers for many of the health benefits, including maternity, substance abuse. those were all manhattan tore underobama care. >> obviously, those could be big changes. there are some other aspects of obama care that are no more under the billing. you mentioned specifically, you know, the list of ten things, including maternity that had to be covered. that obviously not in this bill.
4:19 pm
what else? >> it eliminates tax p penalties for people without health insurance. no more mandate and the companies no longer have to provide health insurance. tax credits will be replacing obama care subsidies. instead, the refundable tax credits will be based on age. some of the credits will range for $2,000 for someone in their 20s to $4,000 for someone in thark 60s but they'll be faced out as your income changes. >> sr. economics analyst for us stephen moore and democratic strategist jonathan. steve, president trump, it boilsz do bahamas down to this. he made a promise to america today. here's what it is.
4:20 pm
>> i think most importantly, yes, premiums will be coming down. yes, duktdables will be king down. but very importantly, it's a great plan and ultimately that's what it's all about. >> premiums and deductibles coming down, steve, is a big thing to say. ok. that's what people were saying under barracks and it went up 21%. it caused the democrats to lose the house and the senate. >> it's going to be difficult in the next year or two to get escalating premiums down on a sharp curve. it's going to take, in my opinion, a couple of years before you see real improvements. in the mediumened long term thegs dramaticcally going to reduce are premiums. you're not going to see 100% premium increases. it takes time to get the new program in place. i am wish he'd have said after a
4:21 pm
couple of years -- >> quickly, you're talking about benchmark obama care plans. but that was a bigger promise he made. premiums for everybody, at big companies and everywhere else. that promise to me, it was an overarching b blanket promise. >> lets me tell you one thing i think will bring down costs fairly considerably, erin and that's a big elements of the bill is to allow people to buy insurance across state lines. instead of having one or two plans to choose from, you can have 50 or 100 plans. competition, we know as kpeists bring prices down. >> john? >> first thing i have to say that today the republican party guaranteed that many people will die and millions of people become sicker because of this plan. i want to tick off a few things. first of all, it's interesting to me, tlan they did not allow
4:22 pm
this plan to be scored by the cbo. the reason they wanted to shove it through without any hearings is when you actually look at the cost and the hit to average people here's what you find, medicare cuts of $800 billion. that's because republicans do not care about poor people and children. medicare will be eviscerated and subject to a lot more cost because some of that money thatches in the obama care came from higher taxes on the rich. this is one of the greatest transfers of money to the wealthy. this is in some way in concert with the tax cuts we're going to see. the republican mission is to rob the average american and give to the very wealthy, whether through eviscerating this health plan or through tax cuss. that's the floss any, very clear. >> steve. >> the big tax increases in the obama care billing where the big increases in business investment. we've got a huge, huge slump in
4:23 pm
business investment in this country. it's the reason wages -- >> that's not true. >> yes, fts. >> tax individuals making over -- >> hold on. >> taxes that -- >> there were those taxes and there was the -- >> taxes were raised on people making over $200,000 a year in part to fund the protection of medicare. >> not that but you're missing my point. >> ok. gentlemen. let him make his point. >> i'm making the point that those tax increases really hurt the economy. >> that's rubbish. >> and the seconds points is you never addressed my points about why in the world are democrats against more competition and hotels care plans. competition lowers cost. >> that's not true. le. >> we saw that. >> that's not true. >> we have some sfeermtal programs where we've allowed states to have waivers so we kamd the amount they got but less regulations. states like -- >> ok. >> it's an important point but i
4:24 pm
want you to responds to one other new england that's important. i think we've got to take sten back. it's becoming obama care having trump karp or ryan care whatever you want to calling it rchlts 22%, the average plan. iowa, you could ends up with no options. right. obama care was not working. would you acknowledge that? >> so let me describe it in this way. there are three groups that we are talking about here. there's the republican plan which is about the free markets which is about killing people and making people more sick. >> there are things about getting people healed -- i'm just saying. >> obama care, what it did very successfully was make sure that millions of people were covered who did not have coverage. it up and downed medicaid for the pooros and the weakest people. it made sure that you didn't have these preexisting conditions. when i defended obama care, i
4:25 pm
understood that it had flaws and the reason is because both palestinians and democrats let the insurance company continue to suck us dry. the only solution is medicare for all single payer health care. the same way -- >> go ahead. >> the only way to solve this health care crisis is the way people do it all the way around the world. they have insurance for all. don't let the insurance companies rob us and impoverish people. >> i don't like insurance companies that much either. >> we both agree on that right there. >> let's embrace single payer. >> no. this is a key point that this gentleman is making. the democrats want a government-run health system. they always have. they set up obama care knowing it wasn't going to work but it would be a steppingstone to a government-run system. let's have that debate. >> ok. >> that's the next level of the
4:26 pm
debate. we will discuss it -- >> want it. >> if its works so well -- >> down taimt payment. thank you both. thank you, next, live pictures from new york city. this is the u.s. s. intrepid. the president is there. he's going to speak live tonight and go to new jersey and his golf club. we're going to tell you exactly what's going to happen when he gets there. a and fbi's director james comey, what does he have to say? to kill lawn weeds to the rootfd without harming a single blade of grass. draw the line with roundup for lawns. without harming a single blade of grass. and together, you had the kid of your dreams. now you can put them in the car of your dreams... for a lot less than you might think. with a certified pre-owned mercedes-benz, you can enjoy legendary safety,

4:31 pm
answers from james comey about a lot of the questions that were raised in a public hearing before the house intelligence committee in march. the fbi was looking into those trump campaign contacts with reduction officials that did not reveal many more details than that. we are told from sources that the questions actually very similar to some of the questions we had heard publicly, whether from republicans about the leaks that may have occurred of classified information and from democrats asking for more information about those campaign contacts emerging from these briefings, some wanted to hear more from james comey. adam schiff, the top democrat on the committee told wolf blitzer that there were questions asked about that russian investigation. he felt they were responsive but not everybody else feels this
4:32 pm
way. it could take a long time, months and months to get answers to those questions. erin? >> thank you very much. it's significant that the house committee -- intelligence committee is back on track. you got the chairman and the top democrat on the same page. obviously, that's significant. "out front" jason miller former senior communications advisor for the trump cam wayne and julia kai a.m. juliette, obviously, a two-hour meeting behind closed doors. when we see director comey it's often no comment, no comment, no comment. he could answer questions today. how big big of a deal is that? >> i think it's a big deal. one purpose of meeting today was essentially to tell the united states that sort of the hot mess of devin nunez is over. i am not suppliesed that the members of the house committee felt like they did not get enough from the fbi director
4:33 pm
comey. the reason why they won't get as much as they want, because this is an ongoing investigation. >> jason, adam schiff put a statement out after the meeting and it showed that they're making some real progress. that's a significant statement. does that sound to you that this investigation is now formally back on track? >> hi think they're doing their due diligence but i think it's important to point out that after eight months supposedly russian investigation and people looking into it there still hasn't been one shred of evidence saying there's some sort of coordination. i do hope that one of these request letters goes out to susan rice who so far seems to be the only person who doesn't want to come in and testify voluntarily. i think anyone involved in trump
4:34 pm
world has nothing to hide. happy to come forward and speak. i think at a certain point we'll get rid of this wild goose chase. >> let me ask you, the house intelligence committee, right. thanks in part to director comey today, they've got their list, they're sending out their full invitations. susan rice was asked to testify, right, the former national security advisor for president obama and she declined. and the president tweeted about it this morning. he said susan rice is refusing to testify before senate subneat next week. not good. yul yet. should suzann rice testify? >> no. because it's not within the scope of the hearing. i find it odd that people like jason and donald trump says these investigations are going on too long. any good american should want
4:35 pm
our intelligence committees to find out so they don't impact future elections. susan rice was invited, was' all know now under pretenses that suggested this was a committee invite. it was not. it was one senator's invite. therefore, she declined. >> yes. >> if a republican were invited under false pretenses, if the departments were in the majority they would probably be doing the same thing. >> cory booker came on last night and told me i wish she would come and testify. lindsay graham's a straight hooter. >> i think we have a preliminary problem more than a substantive problem at this stage. because she is now a focus of trump. i understand why cory booker would want her testify. the notion that she would know something -- for 40 years administrations have had rules about contacts between staff and an ongoing investigation, so
4:36 pm
because there was an ongoing investigation and there was during the obama administration, the idea that susan rice knows something about this, there's actually no proof of it, so the idea that -- i understand the politics of wanting her to sort of testify. but in terms of substance, she's standing on solid ground. >> jason, why wouldn't she just come out and if there is nothing, she didn't mention a game why wouldn't she come out and say so? >> i think the problem is her t.j. would be chock full of taking the fifth. i don't think she wants that big p.r. nightmare. at a certain point they need to get through this so we can move on. the president had a huge win today with health care. most americans want to see health care reform, tax reform. it's been eight months in this
4:37 pm
without one threat of us, i think we should put this behind us. >> the evidence is that the russians had impact on the election. jason, i'll agree with you we're not at collusion yet. the they can determine how they did it so it doesn't happen again. i think americans can be united on that. even if we don't get to collusion. >> we haven't gotten to collusion yet. i think that's the problem with too many in the media right now. >> that's fair. >> think want to get to an answer if there was collusion. if there was wrongdoing, we obviously need to find out but the fact is, after eight months, there's absolutely nothing. it's hurting us. >> we haven't had the testimony and we're just starting the classified testimony. that's all just beginning. thank you very much. i appreciate your time. he called donald trump an awful candidate with serious moral problems.

. new tonight, president trump's new executive order on religious freedom under fire. even some evangelical leaders are objecting. painful the order calls for the irs to ease up on restrictions that prohibit tax exempt religious organizations for getting more political and getting involved ex pless italy in political campaigns. good to have you back on the show, russell. it's nice to see you. there's been a lot of mixed reaction to this executive order. bob vanderplat tweeted this e.o., executive order, appears to be a skeleton for religious victory. what do you make of it? >> the past eight years we've
4:43 pm
had to deal with hostility in terms of religious freedom from the white house in ways we never expected. to the point for nones being forced to pay for contraceptive devices. religious freedom is part of the conversation and that it's been affirmed i think is a step in the right direction. obviously, if this is the end of the story i'm very disappointed but we have to hold out the hope that this is just a beginning around that there are more steps to be made and frankly, the protections of religious freedom can't be made by executive order, anyway. >> you were critical, of course, russell during the campaign of president trump. here's what you told me last year. >> this is someone who as recently as yesterday has said that he has nothing to seek forgiveness for, someone who has been involved in the casino
4:44 pm
gambling industry for all his life, someone who's been using racially charged read rick. i do want someone to have personal karktd. >> you were unafraid to say what you think. have you changed your mind? >> no. i am the sort of person who's always going to tell any politician what i think, for good and for ill. so i think we need to commend that which is commendable and rebluk that which is rebukeble, but in terms of political leadership, we have a president now and so all of us, wherever we stand, need to be praying for the president to succeed in every good thing. right now we really don't need cheerleaders or rock throwers. we need americans and especially cristians to be praying for wisdom and honor and discernment coming from the white house and to be willing to be critical where we need to be critical but to be hope. and supportive where we can. i'm not -- >> so -- yeah. >> i'm not a hundred percent for
4:45 pm
anybody but jeeszous. >> it sounds like what you're saying is he's the president so you want to give that due respect and celebrates what you want to celebrate. in terms of what you said, i want something with personal character. donald trump does not. you haven't changed your mind on something like that? >> no. i think we have a president now and we need to make sure that we're hoping for him to succeed and to -- and the people who are critical ought to be hoping that they're surprised and the people who are supportive ought to be hoping that they're vindicated. so 2016 was a very difficult year for a lot of people. but -- >> so -- >> -- we're in dweft right n201. we right now have to be the people who are saying we really need to move forward.
4:46 pm
>> karvegt is a moot point. evangelist franklin graham tweeted this today. he said -- do you believe at this time that the president is a man of god. >> i don't think that that's matters right now. i think that what matters right now is that the president act as the president of the united states. if i were having a spiritual conversation with the president, it would be a different sort of conversation, the same way i would with anyone that i'm sitting down with. but what i hope for right now is that the president discharges his responsibilities effectively as president, the same way i did with president obama. although i was very concerned about president obama in terms of boil, i was hopeful and ready to pray for him and to support him where i could. with president trump talking about religious freedom and putting religious freedom on the table and at least signalling we're not going to have the kind
