tv   Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs  CNN  July 18, 2017 2:00am-3:00am PDT

2:00 am
major developments on health care and russia as well. good morning and welcome to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> and i'm christine romans. it is tuesday, july 18, 5:00 a.m. in the east. and first a devastating blow to president trump's top legislative priority as mitch mcconnell concedes defeat on the senate health care bill in its current form. he had essentially no choice after two more republicans defected leaving that bill without enough support even to begin debate. >> late last night, mitch mcconnell explained in a statement regretfully it is now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace failure of obamacare will not be successful. mel n mcconnell saying he will push for a few version that will repeal obamacare outright with a two year phaseout so there is time to come up with a new
2:01 am
system. a majority already backed the repeal bill. >> this is just after the president tweeted along the same lines, republicans should just repeal now and work on a new plan that will start from a clean slate. dems will join in. not sure about that. fallout from the defection of the two senators came quickly. ryan nobles has more from capitol hill. >> reporter: good morning. this is essentially the worst case scenario for mitch mcconnell. two more republican senators, mike lee and jerry moran have announced that they will not support the latest eest versio health care reform. this is what senator lee said last night, quote, after conferring with trusted experts regarding the latest ver eest v i've decided i cannot support the current version. in addition to not repealing all the obamacare taxes, it doesn't go far enough in lowering premiums for middle class families nor does it create
2:02 am
enough free space for the most costly obamacare regulations. and jmore ran's statement said that they need to start fresh and that he would not put his stamp of approval on bad policy. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell was already in a difficult position, he needed to hold on to all 50 votes. they had hoped that as early as today they would be voting on the motion to proceed and it looks as though at least for now the senate version of health care reform has been put on indefinite hold. >> thank you. yes, it is a long way to go. joining us to break this all down, david drucker, senior congressional correspondent. good morning. much to discuss about the politics of this, but what does this mean for the american people for health care in the united states in the short term? >> well, in the short term, they are stuck with obamacare or maybe they are happy that they still have obamacare.
2:03 am
and it still has a lot of problems that need to be fixed and nobody has a viable political solution as of yet. >> so now they have to decide whether they will just repeal this thing outright, which seems unlikely life- >> they don't have the votes. >> or let obamacare wither on the vine. or they have to fix it. and there is not a plan for any of those things. >> well, there are plans, but nothing that they have agreed upon that can get the vote in the senate. the house obviously passed its version of a partial repeal. i think what is fascinating is that republicans cannot agree on how to partially repeal obamacare mainly because disagreements over the medicaid program and particularly the expansion of medicaid that was created under the affordable care act. and so i think what mitch mcconnell is trying to do by bringing up full repeal and then let's go fix this thing is to show that there aren't the votes for that, but to also tell his members look, health care has a lot of problems, so if you don't want to do the better care
2:04 am
reconciliation act which is the name of the senate bill, what do you want to do. because they still have to fix health care one way or the other. and i think that is -- there is that pressure there that i don't think people are fully aware of. the bill may be unpopular, but they don't have the luxury like democrats had to say let's leave it alone, let's tinker and spend some time writing a bill and we'll debate it over the next three, four years. they have to fix it. >> i've been watching global markets move. the dollar declining on this because there is the idea that maybe this president can't get his agenda through. should we read too much about what it. means for tax reform? >> it matters a lot. if we can't get health care reform done, i think it puts tax reform in serious jeopardy. there are parts of the health care repeal bill that played into the local tax structure. but there is also this idea about whether or not they can do
2:05 am
things that require heavy lifting. tax reform is going to be very, very difficult. there are a lot of tough votes to take with tax reform about which loopholes or break or whatever that you get rid of. there is also i think a really interesting part of the senate health care debate. there were some are nrepublican senators that were uncomfortable with radio peeling obamacare taxes, that had never existed before except in order to fund obamacare. >> 3.8% on the wealthy. >> but also people that are like upper middle class that if they stopped working, all their money would go around because they are not independently rich. and so republicans felt uncomfortable though because of that sort of charge that the democrats level that may, you want to repeal taxes for the rich, so they said fine, let's get rid of taxes for the rich and we'll leave it in obamacare. the republican tax reform plan
2:06 am
is about a broad scale lowering of the tax rates. it's also about getting rid of some special breaks. but if they can't feel confident this cutting taxes in obamacare, i don't see how they can do it in tax reform. >> and you had four nos. could you have eig you could eight by the end of the day who want to say well, i never was for it. but the president did weigh in on twitter and his tweet was simple. republicans should repeal failing obamacare now and work on health care plan that will start from a clean slate. dems will join in. you say that's not going to happen. so here is john mccain from the hospital while recovering from surgery, he still is sparky. >> he's back at it. >> yes, the maverick is back. he says we must not repeat the original mistakes that led to obama obamacare's fair i'll. the congress must thousand return to regular old.
2:07 am
and he says this is probably the way it should have been done in the very beginning, but what is the likelihood of getting a bipartisan agreement on how we move forward on health care? >> slim and none. because in part democrats want repeal taken off the table or they won't participate. now, that is their prerogative. they believer this obamacare. it cost them about 1,000 seats over the obama term it pass health care reform and defend it and implement it. and so they believe in the policy. but if they are not willing to participate in repealing the affordable care act in some fashion, i don't know how on the other hand you get republicans we've been forming a repeal for seven years and now, oh, well, never mind, thanks for giving us full control, we'll just strengthen obamacare. i mean if there is one way toen sure that the base and broader republican eelectrlectorate doe show up in 2018 and says i don't know what the point is of giving
2:08 am
you control of government so sure, we'll show up and make sure that you keep it, this is how you do it by abandoning the repeal. and that is the other part that people don't appreciate i think. there is a lot of political pressure from the right. they want a good bill, but they want a bill. they want that promise fulfilled. and if you say look, we didn't have the votes, well fix it. this is what we hired you for. go back to work. >> yesterday at the made in america event, i want to play what the president said. this is before the collapse of the repeal, but the president has a very different view about how successful he has been in his agenda. listen. >> we've signed more bills and i'm talking about through the legislature than any president ever. for a while harry truman had us. and now i think we have everybody. i better say think otherwise they will give you pinocchio. i don't like pinocchios. >> he knows he's being fact checked and even as he's saying
2:09 am
this, he knows he might be wrong and he's wrong. the bills signed in the first six months, jimmy carter signed 70, george h.w. bush, 55, donald trump 42 and that is more than barack obama 39. but you hear him -- he has a much bigger idea of what he's accomplished than is reality. >> as mike pence might say, it's broad shoulder embellishment. and it's unnecessary. he's repealed a lot of the obama era regulations through the congressional review act. that is something that has been on the books to be able to be used for about 20 years and no president has ever used it. but there are things that he could talk about that are accomplishments. and if he did that rather than try and blow himself up into the most grand president that we've ever elected, then we'd all be talking about the things that he said as opposed to picking apart
2:10 am
the things that he said that don't add up. >> all right. speaking of things that don't add up, in about 20 minutes we'll ask you about sean spice are's latest explanation of the donald trump skrr ojr. russia m. >> and that scathing editorial. than thanks. now the white house has finally released its roadmap for remaking nafta. the administration published a list of goals. the main points, reducing the u.s. trade deficit with mexico and canada, reinforcing rules that favor american made products. and preserving the ability to enforce trade laws that include certain tariffs. right now they cross borders tax free. and some parts of this document echo the tpp. that is the free trade deal the president dumped in january. it includes better environmental laws, higher labor standards. the administration hopes that
2:11 am
will make mexican workers more expensive and less attractive to u.s. firms. the plan drew criticism and no date has been announced for nafta talks. some democrats calling it too vague. a man left searching for answers after police search and kill his fiance in minnesota. >> our hearts are broken. and we are utterly devastated by the loss of justine. >> authorities so far slow to provide information. we'll have a report for you from minneapolis next. people would stare.

2:16 am
from minneapolis. >> christine and dave, a lot of people asking questions about what happened. of course this shooting has terrified a lot of people. you see signs like this one, why did you shoot and kill our nash a neighbor and friend. we know justine called 911 because she believed back in this annually way that she thought she saw a sexual assault going on. two officers arrived, they did not activate their body camera, they dchb haid not have their dm rolling. at some point a shot was fired, she was hit and died and it's really teared apart her family. >> her last moments before the homicide would be a small comfort as we grieve this tragedy. the death of justine is a loss to everyone who knew her. she touched so many people with her loving an generous heart.

>> there was a statement released by the officer's attorney who says that officer noor extends his con toll denieses to the family. anyone else who has been touched by this event. he takes her loss seriously and keeps her in his daily prayers. and we've learned that she was shot once in the abdomen and that was the fatal shot where she died just out here again most of the community members want to know exactly what happened, they are waiting to hear from police to get the extra details. >> all right, ryan, thank you for that. police in suburban cincinnati have uncovered a strange mystery in their investigation of a deadly shooting this month at a gender reveal party. authorities say the host, cheyenne women police, was not pregnant. investigators say the lie is hampering their investigation of the shooting. one woman was killed. eight people were shot at this party. the police chief says the false leads are, quote, uncommon from

number two overall pick in this year's draft has had a lot of hype to live up to even before his outspoken father lavar ball told the world that his son would take the lakers to the playoffs in his first year. so far he's living up to the hype averaging over 16 points and nearly 10 assists. he earned summer league mvp and led the lakers to become summer league champs despite he didn't enpl even play in the final due to tightness in his calf. the lakers beat the trailblazers 110-98. they finally have something to get excited about. the rockets could draw the highest price ever paid for an american sports franchise. the rockets ceo announced credit the team is up for sale lexly alex an dear bought it 20 years ago for $80 million and its value onned now at $1.6 billion, but some estimates put the sale

needs to start fresh. and that he would not put his stamp of approval on bad policy. mitch mcconnell was already in a difficult position, he needed to hold on to all 50 votes. they had hoped that as early as today they would be voting on the motion to proceed to bring the bill to the floor and it looks as though at least for now the senate version of health care reform has been put on indefinite hold. >> all right. ryan, so much to get to. let's get to it this morning with david drucker from the washington examiner. here's what senator schumer said. rather than repeating the same failed partisan process yet again, republican shoes start from scratch and work with democrats on a bill that lowers premiums, provides long term stability to the markets and improves our health care system. and john mccain from the hospital issuing a statement of saying we must not repeat the original mistakes that led to obamacare's failure. the congress must return to regular order, hold hearings,
2:33 am
receive unpit ainput and producl that will finally provide americans access to affordable health care. they are back to square one. >> square one, yeah. >> let's see what happens over the next ten days to six, seven weeks. the house bill was dead and was dead for six weeks. and quietly republicans were working behind the scenes amongst themselves to craft a compromise which they were eventually able to pass. it's possible that going home for august recess and getting an earful from their constituents and time away from washington could help them find a way to get to something that can get out of the senate. so i think it's too soon just knowing how the process works for these major pieces of legislation to write this thing off completely. >> but as for the notion that president trump has floated and mitch mcconnell has floated, a vote to just clean repeal now, replace later with the two year safety net, what would that mean for the american people and for health care in this country?
2:34 am
>> well, if they created a situation where they repealed obamacare but said nothing will take effect for two, three, four, five years, however long off in the future and then spend time crafting a new health care reform bill with changes to be made gradually, in a sense it would be very similar to what obamacare was. it was a law that was passed and then many part of it were pushed off way into the future. i think the problem here is political. i think that if the republicans would have gone with this approach in january, granted they didn't want to do that, they talked about it, the votes weren't there, but let's say the votes had been there and they had done this when obamacare was still broadly unpopular, when there was momentum to get something done, when you didn't have a house or senate health care bill that was very unpopular, so if you had done it then -- >> and mean. >> and mean. that's what the president said. had you done it then, i think
2:35 am
that could have worked then. i think the problem now, not only do we not think the votes are there, but you have a house bill and a senate bill from the republicans that the polling shows people don't like, either conservatives think it is too weak and democrats think it will gut health care, and so the political atmosphere for doing that now is colored by what people think that the republicans are going to do and it makes that i think next to impossible. >> the whole thing is mind boggling for what it means for the rest of his agenda. the president was boasting about this legislative agenda rfli i g rivaling fdr, which is not true. and there is a concern that this president's aggressive agenda won't happen. >> and when you talk to republicans, i think their biggest concern is that it derails tax reform because tax reform is such a heavy lift. so much of the health care
2:36 am
system representlated to taxes y were looking to use the health care reform bill as a jump-start for the tax reform effort to come later. i think politically what it shows you is how hard it is for the republicans number one to get to yes on big bills. these are tough votes. you have a lot of competing interests. and they can't do it yet on health care. tax reform is not going to be any easier. i also think it is showing you the limit of the president's and to get some of these things done. he's been able to sign a lot of bills that republicans have been very pleased with. deregulation, repealing a lot of the obama era regulations that require legislation for those dismantlings. but so far his ability to negotiate big bills, big deals, that ability has not been there so far. we haven't seen it. in the house when republicans finally got to yes, it was because the white house backed off in part and the moderates
2:37 am
and conservatives worked among themselves without the glare and the pressure to get something done. and then the president was sort of brought this as the ceremonial closer. i'm sure he'd argue with that and say it was more than ceremonial. but the issue here is whether can corral votes, whether he can lead on a legislative front. >> and bogging down that agenda is this russia investigation, the continued evolution of explanations for this don jr. meeting and the president was focused on that yesterday morning tweeting this, most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one don jr. attended in order to get info on an opponent. that is politics. let's be clear, that is not politics. democrats and republicans have said that is not a meeting anyone would take. sean spicer offered this examination in an off camera briefing yesterday. >> there was nothing that as far as we know that would lead anyone to believe that there was anything except for a discussion about adoption and the made
2:38 am
beg magnitsky act. >> there is no evidence of any crime yet, so why the continued evolution of explanations, the defenses that vary from day to day hour to hour? in ye >> yeah, that was the original explanation before the e-mails became public and we knew what at least the russian -- the russians in the meeting were billing the meeting as. so that was an old examination. i don't understand why seere se spicer was going there. i think the important thing is that this is a big distraction and while president trump may exist very comfortably in chaos, i think if you look over his career as a businessman and entertainer and in the campaign, i think he thrives in conflict and chaos. i think it's what he refers. but it makes it difficult for republicans on capitol hill who he needs for the big ticket item
2:39 am
there s that are part of his agenda, they don't thrive in chaos. it creates a problem where the president is not busy using the power that he has with the republican base and the broader republican electorate to sell health care reform or tax reform, they are busy fighting about russia. and even though the base and republicans generally are sticking with him in the battle against the media and whether or not there was evil russian collusion for republicans on the hill and for any independent voters, this is a big mess and it would be much better if they could get this off the table and actually do real boring stuff like -- >> boring is better as they say in finance. the "wall street journal" with a remarkable editorial of the trumps and the truth. mr. trump somehow seems to believe that his outsize personality and social media following make him larger than the presidency. he is wrong. he and his family seem oblivious to the brutal realities of
2:40 am
washington politics. those realities will destroy mr. trump, his family and their business reputation unless they change their strategy toward the russia probe. they don't have much more time to do it. the "journal" calling for radicals transparency. >> and they went on to shoot down the notion of fake news as well. >> david drucker, tlachank you much. after months of clashing, washington's top ethics watch dog is resigning. spending his last few days on the job telling krccnn he stills concerns starting with the president's frequent trips to his own properties. >> you see the president essentially giving his own properties free advertisements by traveling there at our expense. you see almost holding financial interests that leaves us unable to know whether decisions are motivated by policy aims or by personal financial interests.
2:41 am
and we've seen sort of the level of carelessness about ethics on the part of senior appointees. i don't know that i'd go so far as to say in most cases they are intentionally pushing the envelope, but that a message has been sent from the top and the tone from the top is everything in ethics. >> he says he's done all he can, but he plans to keep up the his resignation goes in to effect tomorrow. a man left searching for answers after police shoot and kill his fiance in minnesota. >> our hearts are broken and we are utterly devastated by the loss of justine. >> authorities so far slow to provide information. we'll have a report from minneapolis next.
