good day. i'm andrea mitchell in washington. relief supplies are slowly trickling into the philippines today including more aid from the united states that could arrive by tomorrow. the official death toll is now more than 1700 and likely to soar much higher. typhoon haiyan wreaked havoc on the island nation friday displacing an estimated 660,000 people. nbc's ian williams joins me now with the latest from manila. ian, i know it's a slow process getting aid but what is the latest? >> reporter: hello, andrea. that's right. aid or offers of aid throughout the world are pouring into the philippines but the aid itself is trickling in painfully slowly. there have been a lot of desperate people in those areas saying the things they need most, the water, shelter, medical aid simply isn't
arriving. that was recognized today by the presidential palace where a spokesman said he blamed the sheer scale of the devastation for the slow pace which the aid is -- he said airports and roads were gradually being cleared which will help that effort. one aid agency we spoke to said aid is getting into places like tacloban to the airport. but the problem they then face is getting it from the airport into town because there are no vehicles. they are having to distribute it largely by foot. now, the u.s., of course, is at the forefront of the international efforts. u.s. george washington is steaming towards the philippines. eighty aircraft on board, 5,000 personnel. it will get here on thursday. already 200 marines are on the ground assessing the needs and helping get some of that aid in. now, the death toll continues to
be speculative. the president aquino gave an interview a short while ago in which he said he now expected it to top out around two and a half thousand. he said the 10,000 we had seen quoted was as he put it an emotional official in the immediate aftermath of the typhoon. but clearly with half a million people displaced, the needs here are urgent and very great. as of yet the aid is not getting in and the quantities needed andrea. >> the center of the distribution efforts, the typhoon stripped hospitals of sources they needed desperately to treat ill and urged. dr. nancy snyderman visited a struggling hospital in hard hit tacloban. >> we tried our best but these
are difficult times. >> dr. francis continues to treat the people of tacloban in the face of impossible adversity. >> no generator, no lights. >> yes, ma'am. no power at all since the storm struck. >> no lights, no power, no security, not even potable water. in the five days since super typhoon haiyan struck, those devastated by the storm have come to the hospital for aid they desperately need. its doors open despite being officially closed. >> we do our best to counsel them, make them understand we are having calamity here. even as doctors we didn't even go to our families immediately. we stayed with the patients. >> reporter: treating the sick, the dying, even soon to be born. >> contractions over now. >> patients come in now and they are hungry, have had no water and they are hurting, what do you say to them? >> we just say we're sorry. >> the storms ruin taking the
toll physically and emotionally. >> did patients die because you couldn't treat them? >> some have because we were out of resources. we just made the most of what we had. >> dr. nancy snyderman joins me now on the phone from cebu. dr. nancy, the shock -- i don't know how people are copying. the shock on the face of that doctor and of the medical personnel, they really are trial to cope with this disaster as best they can but they don't have the tools. how are supplies getting in. >> supplies aren't getting in. this hospital hadn't been visited by anyone. we choppered into a far area of town where it's obvious bottled water -- people hadn't seen one bottle so they are relying on sheer will. the concern in this area,
tacloban, as far from the airport as any part is that people are not gathering their water. we watched people gather water from estuaries, waterways that frankly had corpses and dead animals bloating and rotting. this town had a fragile water system to begin with but killed within minutes when the storm surge rose. the genuine and real concern within days, dysentery, typhoid, other infectioning that are water-borne could be a reality. the airport we're talking about is 20 kilometers away. the road being down and people at one end of town not really knowing where to go for relief. sometimes being too exhausted to even get there. it is fractured at best. >> you know, dr. nancy, i saw you in haiti after the
earthquake and i've seen you go to other disasters. but the scale of this is so terrifying. an island nation where we don't even know who is not getting any help at all and where refugees and the homeless have no escape route. >> that's right. i keep thinking, a little like katrina because of the water, a lot like haiti by the sheer devastation. but it's impossible to get a body count. when the local official tossed out 10,000 people, the international press just sort of jumped on it because we like numbers we can wrap in tidy boxes. but when you have a nation made up of 7,000 islands, as we flew over in a chopper you can see one house, villages of three or four. it's easy to put your intellectual capital in a place like tacloban. the reality is we don't know who is missing and who is dead because the storm surge affected
so many people. when you see from the air the sheer width of it all is what stunned me. it's like a giant eggbeater came out of the sky and whipped trees, animals, water, this big soup of humanity and spit it out. it's impossible, until you really cross a mountain range, to see that the devastation just stopped because the storm just ran out of energy. >> and what can you do to help? i know how helpless all of us feel watching it from afar. being in the middle of it, you must have so many conflicting emotions. as a doctor your instinct is to try to help. >> the woman who came in pregnant in labor. she was in active labor, contracting every three minutes and yet her uterus was not
advancing. with no medicine to give her, no chance for a c-section, we left that pregnant woman with some very worried nurses. we're going to try to get back there today to see how that turned out. these are nervous times with anyone who has anything more than just a little cut. >> dr. nancy snyderman on duty in the midst of this devastation. thank you for taking time to call and your powerful testimony. >> here at home hillary clinton, politics, chris christie, big political names you can see highlighting the top of both parties 2016 presidential ticket or won't you. the poll showing former secretary of state with a 10 point lead over chris christie, a fictional head to head. a closer look at some other hurdles for chris christie to come. joining me chuck todd white house correspondent, political director and host of "the daily
rundown." chris cillizza msnbc contributor and host of tv's "in play." tell me the interesting signs and warning signs, perhaps. >> if you look at the general election matchup here, this is a bit of a reality check. yes, chris christie had this monster launching pad right after the media tour, virtual media tour, country, national tv, all this extra attention for being a republican that could turn a blue state like new jersey at least red for governorship and re-election, some impressive numbers. did all of that. at the end of the day when you have an r next to your name and essential matchup, you see he has the same problems mitt romney had in a matchup, a national matchup. he only leads hillary clinton among seniors, whites, and wealthy people. well, that's something the republican party has to fight against. obviously something chris christie talked about. the other part of this poll that
was more interesting and a lot more substantive for political junkies trying to learn about 2016. hillary clinton is in a stronger position today as democratic front-runner than she's ever been, than she ever was eight years ago. people want to say, hey, hasn't hillary clinton been here before. the answer is no. 60% even among groups that were the most important to barack obama's white coalition. men, educated white men, college educated whites and folks out west and in the south. these were people that were par of the obama coalition along with african-americans that allowed them to get over the top. amongst those groups she's fine, much better position than eight years ago. chris christie, whole other story. all the conversation me and chris and everyone said, he's got problems with the more
conservative wing of the party, that shows up in this poll, andrea. >> meanwhile, a lot of problems the white house is facing, chris cillizza, on health care. beginning to see that, democrats up for election, senate democrats very concerned about losing the senate because of obama care. a lot of talk they are not going to be able to get this website fixed. there is the policy problem where the president's promise was clearly not a fair, accurate promise. they had to know that going in. that was really revealed in chuck's interview with the president last week. >> the problem here, andrea, people always say when we write things about the president and his approval numbers, they say he doesn't ever have to get re-elected. here is the problem. lots of senate democrats to hold the senate do need to get re-elected in 2014. that message, which is essentially, if you like your plan you can keep it, just imagine that being made into an
ad-in arkansas, alaska, montana, essentially the president saying that and a narrator coming out and saying that's not true. why did mark pryor, kay hagan, mark begich, why did these people support it? it's a very simple message and very powerful message. look, i think bill clinton who is certainly a senior strategist in the party, i think he recognizes the danger here. i think it's why he gave president obama maybe unwanted and unsolicited advice saying they should figure out a way to allow people who do like their plan, whether it's a substandard plan or whatever to keep it. bill clinton has an eye on a lot of those 2014 senate democrats where that one ad, andrea, could be devastating for them politically. >> jay carney is right now getting hammered by reporters asking when they will release numbers of enroll mment. they already pretty much let folks know numbers would be
really bad, really weak, because that's what kathleen sebelius was saying. they have tried to low ball it as much as they can or inoculate against the numbers. what else can they do? >> not much else they can do. maybe release trend data. maybe they will show in the final week of october they finally saw as the web improved, going up. can feel better about you have 36 federal exchanges producing 50,000 enrollees and you have about 14 state-run exchanges because we do not have numbers out of california producing about the same. we know state exchanges working a lot better as far as website were concerned than federal ones. they may be able to take heart in that. they will have a much larger enrollment on medicate, that is performing level. my guess is they will be able to talk in those terms. the real key is going to be who
are these enrollees. they need young, healthy people, the insurance companies do, for this to work. they can't just have it be folks with health problems, big users of the health system, to be the ones who are likely to be the early signees. that's going to be another facet to this story. okay. lets say you've got your 100,000 enrollees. you need 500,000. 100,000. lets see you ramp up. how many are healthy. how many are helping counter extra cost insurance companies are taking on to cover people with these preconditions. >> thank you so much, chuck todd. obviously something we'll be following very, very closely and chris cillizza. thanks to both. what do hillary clinton and lady gaga have in common you might think not much. both won women of the year in new york. even with all that star people 16-year-old education activist
from pakistan malala yousafzai who stole the show. after standing ovation from an audience including many young girls shouting thank you, malala, we love you, malala gave an impassioned speech telling the crowd i believe the gun has no power. a gun can only kill but a pen can give life. fellow honoree gabby giffords also a fan. she shared this photo with the caption, wonderful to meet the brave malala, her strength is inspiring. you can count two brave survivors in that photo. my customers can shop around-- see who does good work and compare costs. it doesn't usually work that way with health care. but with unitedhealthcare, i get information on quality rated doctors, treatment options and estimates for how much i'll pay. that helps me, and my guys, make better decisions. i don't like guesses with my business, and definitely not with our health. innovations that work for you. that's health in numbers.
to see if it's possible to resolve this issue peacefully. >> any assurance secretary kerry can provide lawmakers on the hill when he speaks to them that would persuade them to hold off on tightening sanctions? >> secretary kerry and under-secretary of state for political affairs wendy sherman are briefing the senate banking committee tomorrow. that's part of a broader effort to consult with congress and update them on p5 plus 1 negotiations as well as our consultations with our allies. when it comes to the issue of new sanctions legislation, it's important to remember no one is suggesting an open ended delay for new sanctions because there may come a point where additional sanctions are necessary. at the same time it is important for congress to reserve ability to legislate in order to give p 5 s 1 negotiations the best
chance of obtaining our goal, preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. again, this is not about being for or against sanctions. this administration imposed the most crippling sanctions in history against iran. we appreciate the leverage those sanctions have given us and we appreciate the partnership congress has given us in that effort. but this is a decision to support diplomacy and possible peaceful resolution to this issue. >> jay carney on the defensive as the administration has been since those talks with the iranians and the rest of the western powers collapsed on saturday night. joining me now is anne gearan, diplomatic correspondent from "washington post." we saw the lead person on negotiations go to israel trying to mollify israelis. secretary went to abu dhabi trying to calm down arabs. a lot of crick over this of they are supposed to get back to the
talks not at secretary level next week. we're now being told they are going to have to try to quiet the critics on the hill. the chairman of the foreign relations committee bob menendez will be joining us tomorrow, an opponent. >> the white house has a circular firing squad here of allies both as you mentioned israel and in the arab world and also on the hill. all firing at them saying this is either a bad deal or could be better. in the case of israelis, criticizing the u.s. for giving away too much too soon. and hoping when negotiators return at a lower level than foreign minister level, maybe some of those differences can be bridged in a way that mollifies congress. right now the president's greatest problem, most immediate problem is probably with congress. >> that's the immediate problem.
we've also seen a little breakage on the diplomatic front. with this opening with iran, we've had zarif, the foreign minister who everyone agrees is sort of the best bet. >> he's the best. >> for a breakthrough former u.n. ambassador very well-known to kerry and a lot of people in the west. he was tweeting in response to what kerry was telling arabs. he was telling arabs it was iran's fault, not the french. he was tweeting in his response saying no amount of spinning can change what happened within the five plus one western powers in geneva from 6 p.m. to 5:45 saturday but can further erode confidence. in social media, the response from iran. >> it's remarkable. he said it actually directly right to kerry. mr. secretary, who did this? in other words, it wasn't iran. he's pointing fingers at the french there, which then left
kerry trying to not only mollify the iranians but hold together his own coalition among the european powers. that's a pretty tough spot to be in. >> bottom line israel leaders won't be satisfied, they told kerry as long as the deal permits them to enrich uranium because they believe they could break out and create a bomb. >> that's the vm position on the iranian programs at the moment. however, it's likely that over time, there will be some -- israelis know there will be some accommodation given to iranians, some enrichment program. the question will be can that be put in a small enough box with a tight enough lock that it will satisfy both israelis and many, many supporters in congress. >> and as well the arab leaders,
including saudis, those elsewhere in the gulf, very fearful of iranian break up. issues seem to be the new plutonium reactor and whether that can be stopped and frozen, whether they will give up advanced rapid centrifuges so far they have not been willing to give up. what israelis and others are saying a freeze is not enough. they already have so much. >> think about only a year ago the idea of any kind of a deal to freeze any part of the program seemed like absolute pie in the sky. now we're there. we're actually at the term freeze for a freeze. we'll freeze the sanctions and lift some, at least on a temporary basis, if you the iranians freeze some of the most troublesome activity. from the israeli perperspective get to a appoint where a deal is done, first of all, a deal that will stick. first of all, leave the iranians
with enough of a program left that they could, as you say, translate that into a bond later on. not right now but later on. >> anne, thanks so much. >> thank you. >> does feel we're at a historic turning appoint one way or the other. coming up, how the u.s. is aiding typhoon victims in the philippines. stay with us.

and if you are pregnant, or plan to be. taken twice daily, xeljanz can reduce the joint pain and swelling of moderate to severe ra, even without methotrexate. ask if xeljanz is right for you. even without methotrexate. don'neutralize them odorand freshen.ash. with glad odorshield with febreze. the united states is providing critical assistance to victims of the typhoon led by u.s. and u.s. aid whose response teams are trying to mobilize relief efforts on the ground. nancy lindbergh assistant administrator for humanitarian assistance for usa. she joins us now. nancy, thanks so much. this is such an enormous challenge. at what stage do you see the
rescue and relief efforts? >> we're still in the early days. this was a massive storm. it's one of the most fierce storms to hit land. the devastation is pretty complete. the roads are washed out, communications are down. what has been happening for the last several days has been getting a massive logistical operation in gear. u.s. aid working closely with u.s. military to provide the kind of lift capacity that gets people into the area, critically needed supplies in. that's what the big push will be over the next several days. >> is the effort now doing to be to evacuate people or to build temporary shelters? >> it's really both. there are evacuation centers in the vicinity. we are tomorrow distributing the first tranche of plastic sheeting and shelter kits that the u.s. has flown in. the first tranche of relief
supplies that include hygiene kits, nutritious food. we have enough highly nutritious food bars to feed 15,000 children and 27,000 dulls for the next seven days. it's getting people out of the rain. getting them critical supplies that can stabilize the situation for the next few days. >> is there a way to purify water? i know you can get water in at some point. they need continuous supplies. they have no shelter, equipment to heat or boil water. we saw that in haiti. >> it's important not only to ensure that people have sanitation and clean water, there's an effort for the many, many dead. the tragedy happened onso quickly, it knocks everything out. we announced yesterday, the united states announced a $20 million contribution to do the immediate help we're doing now
but next stages. it's massive. >> usaid, red cross, food programs presumably in manila and branching out. >> the government of the philippines is in charge of the overall effort. u.s. government working together, us az aid working beside military to do all we can to support government efforts. we're close to the u.n. we provide a lot of support to unicef and world food program, both of which are on the ground and starting to deliver assistance. >> how can people help. >> people can help by collecting cash instead of items expensive to ship. you can connect to reliable groups that have what it takes to get help to those that need it the most.

welcome back. it is believed 70 million people across the globe affected by autism spectrum disorders. in this country alone, 1 in will 8 diagnosed with the disorder. autism speaking, leading advocacy organization since its founding in 2005 is kicking off a three-day summit in washington trying to create a national plan for the millions of families struggling with the disorder every day. joining me are the co-founders of autism speaks, bob and suzanne wright, along with their daughter katie wright, whose son is affected. great to see you. bob, what is the purpose of the
sum. what are you trying to mobilize here? >> a three-day summit talking about a national policy for autism. we're going to cover a whole list of things. we're going to talk about advocacy, science, medical care, we're going to talk about housing, adults with autism. we're going to focus a lot on affordable care act. we'll talk about the states and health and human services and congress. we'll talk about the disabilities treaty. we're going to talk about the reauthorization of autism act. we're going to talk about able, disabilities college program if you want to look at it that way. >> and suzanne, in the years since you started autism speaks you've brought together the best mental health experts, medical experts, physical therapy, all the teams that are needed. what we still have not seen is a national strategy by the federal
government and congress. >> you know what we haven't seen? we haven't seen urgency and accountability that the government needs to face this crisis. 2% of our boys are falling into autism. can you imagine, andrea, if 2% boys were kidnapped in this country? it's a national public health crisis. nobody can tell you better than katie what we've been through since christian was diagnosed with autism, how alone we were. >> christian is 11 years old. >> he just turned 12. >> how is he doing? maybe you can tell us from your perspective how families, you had these incredible partners, means, but so many people don't have a support system. >> i'm so lucky. my parents are my inspiration. they are so dedicated and they care so much. other families have the same support but adopt have financial resources. a lot of our kids have serious medical problems of my son has pretty severe gas to intestinal
problems, it's up to us to figure this out. it's been a tremendous challenge for my family. the national institute of health is not researching this. we would love for them to research issues that affect children living today. that would help a lot. >> the fact is because of the syndrome, children like christian cannot communicate. >> right. >> it's hard to diagnose their illnesses. >> his life is very challenging. he's the hardest working guy, any parent will tell you that, a child with autism. he developed normally for two years, then he experienced a serious regression and lost all his words and skills. that's why i feel so strongly we need more environmental research. by their own count nih only spends 5% of autism research budget on the environment. i really think that should rise. i know most families feel the same. >> bob, what are you saying to
members of congress in both parties. >> take action. >> what they need to do. >> we have to sort of get everybody on board. the mental health parity issue is a very important one. that's gotten attention recently. the president just kind of re-enacted it. it's a 2005 program, 2008 program. it's been passed several times. getting mental health parity with other diseases, conditions, so when you walk into a hospital you're treated the same way, you're going to have plenty of therapy, all of that, is very important. i think we can do it at the state level. states only govern smaller corporations. if we do it at the national level, larger corporations, we have to go to congress. they regulate insurance. then you have affordable care act, so many of the pieces. the individual members and all of that you're seeing health care exchange, that's regulated by health and human services.
we have a real challenge to try to put those pieces together so we can have real parity. parents don't understand why there's so much difference. what difference does it make if you work for a small company or large company in the state or federal employee, small company is forced to do it and other companies aren't of it's very, very messy. we have to try to get that in a real perspective and have some dialogue on it. >> obama care, as currently designed, clear out some of this red tape? >> obama care -- the shame of this whole thing is, the website is a problem i can't resolve. >> nobody can. >> i know somebody at 1600 pennsylvania avenue would want you. >> secretary sebelius is fighting a battle to maintain essential health benefits of this is the cornerstone of the affordable care act, which includes mental health and behavioral support. that has to be in all of the
insurance policies that are going to be issued henceforth. that is a very difficult battle because they are more expensive now than they used to be. the insurance companies want to negotiate down. they want to change it, say we'll do a little of this and that. that's not what the act calls for. we have to be diligent ourselves and recognize warregardless of party affiliation, we can have everybody have the same kind of coverage regardless where they live, what size company they work for, federal employee or state employee. >> you're going to be announcing the national survey? >> tomorrow morning. national survey. what is going to happen to 500,000 kids who are going to become adults in the next decade. where are they going, how are they housed, what are their jobs. these issues have to be faced. this is a national public health crisis we will announce our survey tomorrow morning.
over 10,000 families participated. >> the basic issues are for all parents what is the future for these children as they grow up. >> right. >> what is their education. >> it's apparently up to us to figure out a plan. that's not a sustainable model. we can't do this on our own. we're hoping to get congressional support, nih support. we do have wonderful support with congressman issa, dodd, smith. but there's no real plan in place and my parents are trying to change that. >> we will change it. >> trying to bring autism people into the mainstream was a very good idea, stale good idea. in the process we've eliminated group homes and whole issue of what a group home is. unlike other people with disabilities, these adults, children that become adults, they need a lot of supervision. they need to be in a group home where they have some supervision and other things. that's very difficult to get done now, even if you do it yourself.
it's very difficult to get done. that housing policy issue is an enormous one. >> thank you all so much for everything you're doing. >> thank you. >> we really feel the love and the passion here. >> we have to work on the treaty for disabilities. >> which is a big issue. >> the hearing today. >> the fact they rejected that with bob dole wheeled onto the floor. >> kbabl to believe. >> we hope to change that, too. >> you can change the world. i know. i've seen it. bob, katie, thank you. >> thank you. and some say that chris christie isn't hillary clinton's biggest problem in 2016. we'll find that out next. stay with us. waiting for your wrinkle cream to work? clinically proven neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair. it targets fine lines and wrinkles with the fastest retinol formula available. you'll see younger looking skin in just one week. one week? that's just my speed.

coolest women on this planet. >> well, she may have called her one of the coolest women in the world, but one woman in the democratic party hopes elizabeth warren can challenge hillary clinton. she calls the massachusetts freshman senator clinton's biggest nightmare. editor joins me now, thank you very much. how serious do you think this would be? i know elizabeth warren is saying she's not running, won't do this. a lot of people in the party not only want to see a challenge to hillary clinton but want to see a challenge even if it isn't realized. they just want to make sure she doesn't move too far to the center. >> that's exactly right. there's three questions to think through as we have this conversation. one, has the party changed since the last time hillary ran in 2008. i think all the polling data suggests it has. it's much more populace, rank
