thought there was obstruction of justice, why didn't you act on it? >> what should the fbi director have done? >> we're anxious to hear this. he was suspicious after he came back from that meeting and took the notes. what was his concerns. if there was deeper concerns why wasn't something done at that time. >> you were talking about what happened on valentine's day. inside the oval office, the attorney general, the vice president of the united states and the fbi director. the president of the united states asked the attorney general and the vice president to leave and then reportedly says to the fbi director, i hope you can let this go, meaning the whole russia investigation. does that raise questions? >> it does raise questions. we want to know what comey was thinking, if he thought it had risen to the level of obstruction. if so, why didn't he act on it? if not, was that concerned filed away for what purpose? >> is director comey going to be, either by himself or others,
8:07 am
can say? >> he will not go above an open source, basically what's being reported in the public. he's not going, as i understand it, into a classified intel. we'll do sometimes an open meeting, such as what you'll see thursday. then we go into another classified setting which is pretty secure. >> is the president trying to get executive privilege for him, and if he is, will it be successful? >> i don't think so. we have not heard that whatsoever. it hasn't been brought to the committee as far as i know. i know it's been reported that that might be done. >> if he tried that, what would be your reaction? >> i think it would be wrong. >> i want to go back to the memos you say your constituents raised. we know he took copious notes. have you or anyone on the committee seen the memos and how important are they to this hearing on thursday? >> i haven't seen them. >> do you want to? >> yes. our intelligence committee is made up of 17 of, i think, truly americans.

8:09 am
foolishness, something along those lines. you all are making all this up, it didn't happen the way you're saying. do you think we'll ever get to the bottom of this? >> the intel is very pointed and direct that they have gotten more involved, they became more involved and did everything to become more involved than ever before. we've been going back in this charade for the last 40, 50 years. >> why do you think the president refuses to acknowledge that? >> i cannot answer. that could be the $64,000 question. we have to find out. i want to make sure this gets behind this. i said this, whether it be to michael flynn, help us prove your innocence. don't make us pull out you're guilty. >> the president has an agenda that has to do with health care, immigration, it has to do with tax reform, infrastructure, all of that. is he going to get any of that passed before the 2018 election? >> i would sure hope so. this c

congress to repeal obamacare by this summer. dr. ezekiel emanuel was one of the architects of president obama's affordable care act. first on "cbs this morning," dr. emanuel shares his solutions for higher quality and lower cost care in his latest book called "prescription for the future." he writes, although the next few years may be rocky, the american health care system will ultimately become better performing and more affordable in the long run. a lot of people sure hope so. doctor is chair of medical ethics at the university of pennsylvania. i hope you heard senator manchin say millions of people have health care that didn't before. they don't want to lose it. would you agree it needs to be fixed? you're one of the architects? >> absolutely. we've had unintended consequences from the affordable care act. we had pbl
8:18 am
we couldn't solve before it gotten acted. it's been around for seven years. any corporation that would do a massive change like this would macon stand adjustments, because of the paralysis in congress, we haven't been able to make the adjustments. we know there are repairs needed. >> what do we do about it? >> on the exchanges there are three very simple things. enforce the mandate, guarantee the subsidies to the insurance companies for cost sharing, the deductibles and co-pays for family making less than 50,000 and make sure the insurance companies have risk orders so if they get too many sick patients, they're protected against that. two of those things were the aca, but the republicans undid them. we have to do those basic things. everyone knows it's those basic things -- >> before all of that, one of the thangs that drove opposition to the affordable care act was ss
8:19 am
that perhaps the obama administration did not accurately predict or prevent. >> so, first of all, we need to be accurate. the health care inflation rate has actually stabilized under the affordable care act. in certain markets like some of the exchanges you have seen very steep rises in premiums. there are things to do. there are many, many cost control measures. one of the things i would say is the republican bill has zero cost control measures in it. they're not going to address affordability. i agree with you affordability is one of the things people care about, and quality. they want to make sure they get good quality. my book is about how can we improve the quality of the system and lower the cost. >> can you do that without mandates? that's what drove the opposition to obamacare. >> answer, simply, charlie is kn no. you can't have the sick people in the system and healthy people waiting to get sick before they
8:20 am
that's just the simple fact. we're going to have to accept that fact. you can either have mandates or auto enrollment, you just get basic coverage. >> you had two things in your book on how you choose the best doctor for yourself. two questions you should ask. >> the first one is, do they do open access scheduling which means they start the day with half of their appointment slots empty for people who walk in or happen to get sick or they need that checkup done. open access scheduling is very important. it's so the doctor doesn't say, i'll see you in six weeks or i'll double book you and everyone is waiting and being annoyed. the second one is, are they on some performance measurement plan, do they have something like patient-centered medical home so they're measuring their performance and trying to improve it. that is key because we want doctors who are going to do better and know how well they're doing. so open access and are they on performance measurement plan like a patient-centered
