sympathy or regret or anything for any of his victims. they were all soldiers of the technological society as far as he was concerned. he had a higher purpose, and they were immaterial to him. they're on the job at the u.s. the truth! you can't handle the truth. >> you have been hijacked by a small group of extreme folks who simply hate this president. >> aoefr night while you were sleeping, as you heard lawmakers were fighting but for all that they accomplished, the house, they may have well as just stayed home. remember when we showed you
those creepy anti-obama care ads? wait until you hear you made them and who helped to pay for them. and we will introduce a judge who may not be able to see, but that does not stop him from calling games. good morning. everybody. i am debra fay rick. >> and i am victor blackwell. guess what was going on in new york? >> the season premiere of "saturday night live," hosted by none other than tina fey. take a look. >> let me start by saying i am psyched for obama care!
>> there you go. i love that enthusiasm. >> because now that i have free health care i can get sick all the time! free medicine, y'all. >> well, that's not really how it works. >> i stopped washing my hands and i am licking subway poles, thanks president. >> you can always count on them to find the comedy in washington. but it's not difficult for everybody sitting at home to find this comical. >> it's certainly laughable. >> this is in olympia, greece. we are a few months out for the start of the olympics in sochi, russia. the have lit the torch, and the rely begins. this torch rely will have a record number of torchbearers,
14,000, however it will not travel around the world like 2004 and 2008, and it will go through tt regions of russia. >> the torch will be the first time a torch is actually going into space. that's going to be interesting. wonder how they will do that, so it will be something to watch. >> and the 22nd winter olympiad. we will talk about the history as the relay starts with the countdown to the olympics in sochi. a house vote means it is almost certain, some would say, the federal government will have to hang up a closed for business sign come tuesday. >> overnight the republicans pushed through another bill that pays for the government but not obama care, and that is a no-go
for the president. >> reporter: the federal government is on the brink of a shutdown. house republicans defied the president's veto threat. on party line votes gop party makers voted to repeal a tax on medical devices. from the white house to the house floor, democrats accuse republicans of being irresponsible, and republicans accuse democrats of being unreasonable. >> the president of the united states for the first time today since 1979, the president of the united states reached out to the dictator in tehran, who is sworn to erase israel, and the president will talk to the dictator of tehran but won't negotiate with house representatives.
>> i agree with the colleagues, this whole debate is a proxy for a strong desire to bring this nation to its knees and punish the people for electing barack obama president of the united states. >> will you accept the compromise? if this government shuts down, it's because you have not accepted the compromise that republicans reached out and offered. >> mr. speaker, for people tuning into this debate i want to make sure there is no confusion, this is not "saturday night live," and this is the republican majority at work, although they are not working, it's a game they played since day one. >> reporter: even though the government runs out of money monday night, a source tells me they have no plans to meet again
until monday afternoon. congress is at a stalemate which is why the house paid the bill to pay men and women of the military should the government shut down. >> dana bash covering this growing likelihood of a government shutdown. >> the house, it voted to delay obama care. two democrats voted with republicans on the delay. and conversely, two new york republicans voted against their party's bill. >> those are the lines and people who crossed the lines, but the late-night vote was more than a bunch of numbers. >> believe it or not, some even quoted jack nicholson movies. check out some of the best
sights and sounds. >> you are bowing to the extremist, the tea parties who don't really want to see the process move forward. we know that the affordable care act is the law of the land. we know it has been affirmed by the supreme court of the united states. let's move on. >> it's not like the president says there will be no negotiations, no negotiations, he will negotiate with foreign dictators before he will negotiate with us. >> what if democrats said we are going to shut down the government if we don't get immigration reform or gay rights or gun control. >> the truth. you can't handle the truth. mr. speaker we have shown the other side how premiums are going up 200 and 300%, and told them about the loss of jobs. >> you have been hijacked by a small group of extreme folks who simply hate this president.
>> how dare you presume a failure. the fact is this country is based on people saying they won't do things and at the end of the day coming together for compromise. >> you probably know that name, darrell issa, and you know pelosi and cantor and boehner, but a name you likely don't know, think of him as the man behind the curtain, and the architect of the government's possible shutdown. he is a freshman republican from north carolina, and we asked cnn's erin mcpike to work up a profile on mark meadows. how does this lawmaker engineer a shutdown? >> as you know, senator ted cruz has been firing away at this and telling house republicans that he wants them to be onboard, too, but mark meadows, who has you said was just -- he came to the house in january after being elected in november.
he is from western north carolina, and he is an evangelical christian and business owner. this august when he was home in his district he was hearing so much about how awful his constituents hated obama care and he wrote the leadership a leader and said they should tie the defunding of obama care to funding the government. we listened to him at a tea party rally in early september and this is what he had to say about this. >> ronald reagan used to have the greatest line, and he says if you can't make them see the light, make sure they feel the heat. >> now, of course, we hear many republicans say things like that when they are railing against something and lots of republicans like to talk about ronald reagan, but we heard a little bit of him on the house floor yesterday. i think we can play that for you, too. >> indeed we did elect a
president, a mere nine months ago. but i want to remind you, mr. speaker, that i was also elected some nine months ago and we did not elect a dictator, we elected a president. >> of course, victor, as you heard some say, republicans hate the president, and we don't know if they hate president obama, but a lot of it is because of the signature health care law signed into law in 2010. >> yeah, we will hear more about him and from him in the next few days. >> a lot of inflammatory language there. >> sides are not playing well together. we are just getting into the swing of fall. it's looking a little like winter in colorado where a light dusting of snow fell outside of denver. >> heavy rain and wind slammed
the portland area, and you should never drive through the standing water, and trees are downed sometimes under the water, and power lines down and thousands of people without power. the weather, as we move from the summer into the fall, still a big story across the country. >> yeah, it's that time of year, guys, when you are making that transition from the summer into the fall, the weather pattern goes quickly for some folks and around portions of the northwest certainly going to be the case, just the menacing storm system, and the first band of wet weather came through in the first 24 hours and second band comes in today, and we are talking about hurricane gusts-wind gust, and this storm is not just like any other storm. it packs moisture associated with a typhoon that was over japan five days ago, and pushing in. that's why so much rain is
expected. and the second ban gets here, upwards of four to six inches of rainfall possible on top of this, and in seattle and portland, that's a record amount of daily records there. we had some 25,000 customers around portland and that pattern of weather expected to continue, and the national picture looks like this. and the northwest being the hardest hit area, and we have a broad feature pushes through the portions of the ohio valley. and all in all, it looks like a very soggy setup across the portion of the country, guys. >> thank you so much. still to come on new day, a louisiana pastor shot and killed in the pulpit while preaching. >> i can't see anything at all. >> first down warrior!
>> plus, a blind man is the one calling the play by plays for one high school football team. guess what? he is perfect at it. we went out and asked people a simple question: how old is the oldest person you've known? we gave people a sticker and had them show us. we learned a lot of us have known someone who's lived well into their 90s. and that's a great thing. but even though we're living longer, one thing that hasn't changed much is the official retirement age. ♪ the question is how do you make sure you have the money you need to enjoy all of these years. ♪ some kind of... this is... an alien species. reality check: a lot of 4g lte coverage maps don't really look like much at all. i see the aleutian islands. looks like a duck. it looks like... america... ish. that's a map. that's a map of the united states. check the map. verizon's 4g lte is the most reliable,

talk about it, and some have dvr'd it. 6.6 million viewers turned in, and it takes place in albuquerque, new mexico, and tourism there is booming, and the big question, how is it going to end? we have an evolution of the main character, walter white. >> he is diagnosed with cancer and in order to leave his family well taken care of, he becomes a crystal meth king pen to make money so he can leave them cash after he dies. we will talk about that. the big story, a government shutdown, and come tuesday, it's beginning to look like a forgone conclusion. overnight, house republicans pushed through yet another bill that pays for government, but it
delays obama care, and that's a no go for the president. >> our khachief government correspondent, dana bash, has more. >> reporter: senate democrats promise to reject any bill funding the government that does anything to change the president's signature health care law. they voted to repeal a controversial tax on medical devices that republicans say would be passed on to the consumer. from the white house to the floor, republicans accuse democrats are being unreasonable and democrats accuse republicans of this. >> the president of the united
states will talk to the dictator of tehran but won't negotiate with the house of republic 'tis. >> i agree with my other colleagues, this whole debate is a proxy for a strong desire to bring this nation to its knees and to punish the people for electing barack obama of the united states. >> will you accept the compromise? if the government shuts down it's because you have not accepted the compromise that republicans reached out to you and offered. >> mr. speaker, for people tuning into this debate, i want to make sure there is no confusion. this is not "saturday night live." this is the republican majority at work, although they are not working, it's a game, it's a game they have played since day one. >> the obvious question now is now what? even though the government runs out of money on monday night,
they have no plans to come into session until monday afternoon. many senate democrats have voted for repealing the medical device tax in the past, congress is at a stalemate, which is why the house also passed a bill to pay men and women of the military should the government shut down. >> all right. chief congressional correspondent, dana bash, thank you. the house was as you saw, a late night battleground. you heard the yelling and you saw and listened to them mock their rivals and there was quotes of a jack nicholson movie. listen to the best sounds of the debate. >> it's not like the president says there will be no negotiations, no negotiations. he will negotiate with foreign dictators before he will negotiate with us. >> you have been hijacked by a small group of extreme folks who simply hate this president.
and the majority of the american people elected president obama, and you hate that. when you see that, because shake your head if you want to, you cannot separate obama care from the president of the united states. it's one and the same. you are the ones that are offering the shutdown. >> how dare you presume a failure. how dare you. how dare you. how dare you presume a failure. the fact is, the fact is, this country is based on people saying they won't do things, and at the end of the day, coming together for compromise. >> well, why take it out on the reporter. some small business owners are worried about the impact of president obama's health care reform law on them, and what does it mean for business? margaret, you had a conversation
with a guy that actually caused a pretty big stir last year when he said that he might have to stop hiring. >> victor, we spoke with a man that owns 35 applebee restaurants, and he talked about what he has to do. he is the owner of all new york area applebee restaurants. >> we won't build more restaurants or hire more people. >> a year later from the newest restaurant in east harlem, he says he will find a way to continue with business and his best people are his full time people. >> am i going to penalize my best people because the president has put into play something that penalizes me? no. i have too much at stake. >> these crucial decisions have
dire economic consequences. >> a small business is being forced to provide an expensive package of health benefits for employees, and the new law gives them no additional help, there is no subsidy. >> costs is the biggest single concern for companies according to julie stone. >> what kind of impact will it have on the country? >> seismic proportions, and it will change the fabric of who we are and how we go about our daily lives. >> for zane, he is taking each phase of reform at a time. >> i don't think it's going to be so terrible, and people are not going to opt at least for the first year for 10% of their gross income going to obama care. >> zane is just one example of a business owner that is doing the math or trying to calculate how much it will cost whether their company should keep health care benefits or if they should go to private or public exchanges.
>> it's one company making this decision, and what are other companies doing? >> so i have a list here. ups and delta, they say that obama care is definitely going to cost them more money. trader joe's, home depot, they are moving their part time workers to obama care exchanges, and this is an example of how complicated this is, and walgreen's are shifting all employees to a private exchange, and time warner, they are moving their retirees to a private exchange, and starbucks they are not going to change their plan even though they know obama care will cost them more. >> thank you. >> interesting shift. on a day when so many gather to worship, a louisiana church is mourning the death of their pastor. a gunman walked into the church on friday not and shot ronald harris twice as he was preaching. this is the man facing charges,
and we are joined live by phone. sir, do you have any new information or motive of why this man shot the pastor? >> we have been told that mr. karey is a member of the church, and he was a deacon of the church. it appears as though this investigation is involving some issues that occurred with the church. >> chief, was it a crime of passion? was there some romantic issue or a financial issue or was he
unhappy with how the church was being run? >> we are still in the early stages of the investigation, and there are a lot of witnesses that have to be interviewed and we have to interview every person in the church that night, which is about 50 to 60, 70 people, and we haven't taken all of the statements from everybody, so we are really not releasing a whole lot of information about the case because it still is in the investigative state. >> this must have been so traumatic for the members of that congregation to see a beloved pastor gunned down in front of them. how are they doing this morning? >> you know, it's a pretty tough situation. these people thought they were going to church to hear a message from god and instead they witnessed a pastor being gunned down in the middle of a service by the deacon, so they are having a pretty tough time
with it, and unfortunately, the victim's wife was in the audience at the time. we are asking for prayers for this church, and for our community, and more importantly for the two families. this was a very tragic event. >> the chief deputy, and thank you so much, we look forward to the outcome of your investigation. thank you. >> thank you. >> i think he made news this morning, that it was not just a man that might have known the pastor, but a deacon that came in and shot the pastor, and allegedly he has been charged, and he has not been convicted, although they say he called in and surrendered. >> and he led them to the guns as well, so they knew each other and clearly there were some issues and we will see exactly what the motive was. >> of course. you know the nesting dolls, one inside the other? that house bill to pay the other bills, kind of like that. we will look at something extra

if you are just waking up, the house approved a bill early this morning that pays for government but delays obama care. that bill also does something else. >> it let's employers and insurers opt out of contraceptive care under obama care if they find it objectionab objectionable. we will look at the congressman behind this. >> it's tim haoul's camp, and he represents the first district of kansas. he was first elected in 2010 on the tea party wave that brought republicans back to power in the house, and he has a phd in political science and agriculture policy and is a farmer out in kansas, and this is interesting, he has four adopted children. to give you a little more
context, he is a socially conservative republican so earlier this year after the supreme court declared the defensive marriage act unconstitutional, he introduced a constitutional amendment to restore it, and also let me tell you this, he ran unopposed had he ran for re-election last year, and that gives him cover to move as far as he wants to the right, and get heavily involved in the tea party, which he did earlier this month and listen to what he said there. >> i want to ask the president a few questions. mr. president, if obama care is so great, why are you not signing up for it? why not the president? why not the cabinet? why not members of congress? how about your labor unions? >> you may remember when contraceptive care and the coverage for it came up as a big issue last year in the presidential election in february and march, republicans really took a lot of heat and

admit they don't know the basics about the coverage or what it might cost. we asked foreman to take us on a tour to shop for obama care. >> sanjay, despite the monumental changes to health care, most of us who have insurance, and that's most o us, probably won't see much change, and maybe some modifications, but this is really about the 48 million people who do not have insurance, about half of whom are now expected to buy it through these health care market places, and about 7 million by the end of the year, to give you a point how fast it will be moving along. how will the market places operate? imagine a store where you can go in and buy one of four different types of health plans, bronze, silver, gold, platam. if you buy at the lowest level, the bronze, your premium will be fairly low, but if you go to the doctor, your co-pay and deductible and other fees will be higher.
platinum, just the opposite. you will pay a higher monthly premium, but at the doctor's office all of your fees will be lower. this will not be the same state to state to state because there are local companies involved and that could make a difference. this part should be the same no matter where you go in the country. you will not have higher premiums if you get sick. you should not be denied coverage. if you are already sick. and you will not pay fees for preventive care, you get a mammogram or general physical, you will not pay extra for any of this, and there is a lot of money involved in all this and the government wants to help people paying for it. if you make $46,000 or less a year as a individual, $94,000 or less as a family of four, they will give you a refund to help pay for this. nonetheless, no matter how you get there, everybody is going to
be involved. doesn't matter if you live in one of the dozens of states that say they want nothing to do with obama care, you are still going to be part of the program. the federal government will administer the marketplace in your state instead of the state, and that's simply how it's going to work. you will have to get involved, because if you don't pick a plan, if you don't get involved, you are going to be fined by the federal government. that's how this is going to work. so if you are uninsured in the country, the time is upon you now, and you are going to have to make a decision no matter where you live, coast-to-coast. of course, a big question out there, what people are going to pay for the new coverage. i will tell you, it's going to vary quite a bit by state to state, and it will vary less than it does now. on the low end for example, on the tennessee for the second lowest cost plan in the silver tear, it's a fairly modest plan, a single person 27 ears old will
pay $61 a month, and a family of four will pay $584 a month, and the same plan in wyoming, more than $1,200 for the family, and $342 for the single person. bottom line, about 6 in 10 people now uninsured will be able to get coverage for less than $100 a month and we will keep tabs on the numbers. there is a lot to digest here. you can look up details about your home's state at cnn.com/healthcare. earlier the week i was asked to lead the discussion about raising healthy women and girls, and the panel was an amazing panel. it was a great conversation, and
it also turned to the u.s.'s health care overhaul and the fight over the threatened government shutdown. >> this president is not going to agree to de-fund health care. we're on the path to beginning the implementation. if they want to shut the government down, that's on their head, and their responsibility. if they go even further, which is deeply distressing, and for the first time lead our country into default on our obligations, that is not just partisan politics, that is going at the heart of our credibility around the world, not just our economic leadership, but our political and strategic leadership. i hope that our friends on the other side of the aisle -- it's a minority, but it's a noisy minority, and they understand it's not right to do and bad
politics. >> didn't she sound like a candidate clinton there? a little bit. i will hit the road with the cnn express and we are traveling to see how the obama care signup really works, and what problems may arise as well. i will answer all your questions. make sure you understand what is really going on with your health care. i was sitting next to a guy on an airplane the other day, and he started puffing on the cigarette, the electron eubg kind kind. we'll talk about that next. man: [ laughs ] those look like baby steps now. but they were some pretty good moves. and the best move of all? having the right partner at my side. it's so much better that way.

added up. >> there is a lot of interest in the topic. a few years ago, the fda banned the e-cigarettes, and in 2010 the court overturned it because they said there was no evidence they are harmful. is it a question they are bad for you or we still don't know? >> i think what w can say basically is they might or might not be able to help you quit, but there are definite harms they can cause, and those definite harms are in different environments. if they get kids hooked on nicotine, that's a bad thing, or if they get a smoker that would have kept smoking to continue smoking, that's a bad thing, if they get a person that stopped smoking to go back, that's a bad thing, and reglamorizing smoking as a good thing, that's a bad thing. >> let me ask about the other people who are around people smoking e-cigarettes, the idea
of secondhand smoke, and some researchers say the amount of carson skwrupbz in the vapor. >> we don't know what is in more than 200 e-cigarettes products out there, and we know there is nicotine, and if you are around somebody using that e-cigarette, you will inhale or absorb some of the nicotine in the product, and that's probably something that could be engineered outside of the product. >> also, the idea that it's being marketed to kids, or young people at least. you have called this deeply troubling in the past, and why? >> well, if you start with e-cigarettes, and there is a real likelihood that you will become nicotine addicted. we found in studies that 20% of
middle school kids that used e-cigarettes only used e-cigarettes, what that suggests to me and it's not proof but what it suggests to me is that some kids are starting to e-cigarettes and getting hooked on nicotine and going on to regular cigarettes and that's a real problem because those kids could be getting condemned to a lifetime of nicotine addiction. >> and they will say they are not targeting kids because you have to be over 18, but we have to bring it up because some of the marketing campaigns. >> the fiscal cliff looms on monday night and into tuesday, as i am sure you well know, and for an organization like the cdc, can you give me tangible impacts it could happen if there is a government shutdown? >> we hope there will not be a government shutdown, and sequest sequester, shutdown, and the talk of shutdown is disruptive
to work at the cdc and the government, and what this does is put in a great deal of uncertainty. we are working out what a shutdown would mean. we have to go through every single staff person in the agency and say would they continue to work or not? there is a great deal of legal complexity of what happens, and this is really distracting. it distracts us from the mission, which is protecting people from threats. >> i always enjoy speaking to you. hope you come back again soon. >> thank you, john say. sanjay. how a hip-hop program is using music to help kids get fit. and then a former cnn anchor feels a pain in his abdomen worst than anything before. >> i ended up dying twice that week. >> he is very much alive and back on the air as well, and we have his story coming right up.

just ask your doctor about it so you can chase life, too. that's going to wrap things up here. stay connected with me at cnn.com. let's keep the conversation going on twitter. "new day sunday" continues right now. the truth you can't handle the truth. >> you have been hijacked by a small group of extreme folks who simply hate this president. >> overnight while you were sleeping, lawmakers were fighting, but for all they've accomplished, the house may as well have stayed home. the phone call between president obama and iranian president was historic for the two nations. it could be life changing for one american pastor in prison in iran. we'll talk to his wife and attorney about their renewed
hope. and we've all heard about blind justice in the law. but what about in football? we'll introduce a judge who may not be able to see but that does not stop him from calling games. good morning, everyone. >> good to have you with us. now 8:00 here on east coast. this is "new day sunday." we have a lot coming up this morning. the premier of saturday night live. did you watch it? a good chance if you were up this early you didn't see this late last night. but it was hilarious. tina fey hosted, 39th season open. >> and, of course, they gave a nod to the drama in washington because there is so much political theater. how can you not try to take a -- >> you can't ignore it. >> that's right. plus, the new film "gravity" premiering next week, it is starring sandra bullock and george clooney.
bullock plays a medical engineer and then all goes well until the shuttle is destroyed. all you see is her drifting off into space. >> there's that moment where she says, can you hear me? i'm really looking forward to this one. i don't go see a lot of movies. so this hour we're going to actually take you to the science behind simulating that concept of being stranded in space and how they do it. it's really fascinating stuff. that, of course, is coming up. but we're going to start with the big deadline in washington. >> now a couple of deadlines, actually. the clock ticking toward a tuesday shutdown. much of the government is getting ready to close up shop. >> yeah, that's because the house did something early today that makes a shutdown more likely than not. republicans pushed through a bill that pays the government's bills beyond monday. but -- there's a big but. >> there is always a big but. the bill delays obama care for a year. it repeals a tax that would help to pay for obama care that is the medical tax bill, the bill
goes to the senate where the democratic leadership has basically said, no, dead on arrival. >> two democrats, they voted with republicans on the obama care delay. >> conversely, two new york republicans richard hannah and chris gibson voted against their party's bill. >> so let's get reaction to the vote now. we're joined by cnn's senior white house correspondent brianna keilar and state of the union host candy crowley. i want to start with you, brianna. this latest turn makes a shutdown very likely. and we heard any response from the administration, from the obama administration? >> we got a reaction, actually, from white house press secretary jay carney yesterday as this was going through, as this process was happening. he said republicans tried to defund or delay the health care law more than 40 times and they know this demand is reckless and irresponsible. the president has shown he is willing to improve the health
care law and meet republicans more than half way to deal with our fiscal challenges but he will not do so under threats of a government shutdown that will hurt our economy. any member of the republican party who votes for this bill is voting for a shutdown. and victor and deb, the white house issued a veto threat over what house republicans pass last night. officials here, we heard this just from president obama, he doesn't want to negotiate on anything that will delay obama care or that willdefund obama care. he has said this is a legitimate law. it was passed by congress. the supreme court upheld it. and to talk to officials here, they just think that what republicans are doing is quite ridiculous at this point. obviously, a lot of the action still on capitol hill to see what the senate is going to do in response to this house bill passing late last night. deb and victor? >> all right. brianna keilar, thanks so much. now let's bring in candy
crowley. with a government shutdown seeming almost certain, candy, the president, there's a feeling why aren't both sides coming to the table to negotiate? are they afraid it's going to fail or are they afraid it's going to succeed this whole affordable health care act? >> well, if you mean -- listen. a lot of folks on the republican side say it's already a monumental failure. they say businesses aren't hiring because they're worried about what obama care means. in some cases they're making full time workers part time workers. so their argument has been all along we already know this is a disaster. here are the things that aren't working, et cetera, et cetera. obviously, the white house takes a totally different view and says let's put this up there which an on line signup is going to start on tuesday. we're going to put it out there. there are going to be glitches. we'll fix the glitches. but it's going to go forward. so now i think what you saw in some of those clips is they're setting up that kind of who's
responsible for this. now you're hearing less about the substance of this and a lot more about who's closing down the government. i suspect that's what you're going to hear over the next couple of days. >> yeah, absolutely. we haven't heard anything but. you have an interview in the next hour with john gross yoe and howard dean. both of them are doctors. do you think in terms of whether this will work, people are going to have to start signing up for these various marketplace plans come tuesday, at least they'll have an opportunity to do that. do you think it will capture the public imagination? do you think once it gets going that in fact there will be enough momentum or could it get held up if they want to delay it or decide to take away the tax that's supposed to pay for it? >> all things are possible. i think that the medical device tax has a good chance of passing. but probably not on this bill. we'll see. but there is a lot of resistance to the medical device tax on
wheelchairs, et cetera. so that may be one of those things the white house is willing to look at and democrats are willing to look at. but the white house made it pretty clear that it's not going to negotiate on either the debt ceiling or the spending resolution about obama care because it's, you know, obviously going to start up on tuesday. they're intent on doing that. as to whether folks will sign up, that's key. the next six months will certainly tell us a lot about what will work and what won't work because the signup needs to really bring in a lot of what they call the invincibles, those young people who don't think they need health care, who can't afford health care. they say yeah, but i don't get sick anyway. they need a lot of those folks. that's where the key is. that is the demographic you want to watch the next couple of days. >> if they don't sign up, then the premiums for the older folks will go up. candy, thank you so much. going to be interesting to watch. >> and, of course, stay here for state of the union with candy crowley coming up at 9:00 a.m.
eastern here on cnn. now to the civil warren gulfing syria. damascus could make the case before the united nations monday. >> and the u.n. security council is ordering syria to get rid of the chemical weapons. cnn foreign affairs reporter joins us now from new york. tell us more about what's happening on monday. >> victor, the syrian foreign minister is going to be addressing the u.n. general assembly even as inspectors from the united nations are in syria finishing up investigating even more possible incidents of chemical weapons. so it's kind of interesting dichotomy there. the syrian foreign minister even after the u.n. security council passed this resolution calling on syria to give up the chemical weapons, they're saying assad is not leaving power. he's if power until mid-2014 at least when there's his term ends and there will be another election. so i think even after everything that's gone on over the past few
weeks with the united nations security council now that syria has agreed to give up chemical weapons, the syrian regime feels embolden and that it's even has job security. so they're saying they're willing to go to a peace conference. that the u.s. and rush why are trying to set up in geneva in the next couple of months. but president assad is not going anywhere, victor. that's what they're saying. >> in turn. two years ago president obama said assad must go. and now the president believes he has job security based on something that was spear headed by the folks in washington. thank you. so rough weather made the way to oregon this weekend. >> that's right. just can't hold back winter. heavy rains and winds downed power lines and trees near the portland area leaving thousands of residents without power. more rain expected today. let's bring in our meteorologist in the cnn severe weather center. >> yeah, this storm system looking like a textbook winter
storm system here. clouds well over 1,000 miles end to end and parked out there in the gulf of alaska. gusty winds upwards of 75 miles per hour already recorded. look at seattle. it has a dubious distinction for rainfall. the dry season transition into september and october. we go to 1 1/2 inches rainfall to 6 1/2 inches in november. look at what occurred so far this september as you round out towards the latter portion of the month. nearly five inches have already come down. an additional one to three inches could come down making this the wettest septembers on record across seattle. and that pattern, again, continues down to portland where we know travel delay will be abundant. one to three inches for the metro areas. four to six could come down in the southwest facing slopesst cascades and olympic mountains of washington and into oregon. you take a look, certainly going to be rain cooled. 57 degrees across the northwest. gorgeous conditions in the heart of the country, about 75 in kansas city. you cannot beat weather like this northeast fall weather about 75 to 76 degrees for
millions of people across the northeast. >> delicious. absolutely delicious. >> sweet spot right there. >> very nice. >> absolutely. thanks so much. >> you bet. >> the owner of a bunch of appleby's franchises caused a big stir when he said obama care would make him stop hiring. is he changing his tune now? plus a small act of kindness spreads around the world. we'll tell you how pumpkin spice latte, and a lot of people love pumpkin spice latte, how it inspired thousands to pay forward. ♪ for a strong bag that grips the can... get glad forceflex. small change, big difference. mayo? corn dogs? you are so outta here! aah!

>> now zane is one example of how businesses bracing for obama care, companies across america are doing the math. they're checking the public and private exchanges and they're calculating what the costs are going to be. >> and margaret, what are some other companiesdoing? they are cutting back in certain areas. >> yeah, deb, ups and delta, they say obama care is definitely going to cost them more. trader joe's, home depot, they're moving the part time worker to obama care exchanges. they're handling them in different ways. walgreens, they're shifting employees to a private exchange. ibm and time warner, they're moving the retirees to private exchange. one company, starbucks, they're not going to change the coverage plan even though obama care is going to raise its costs. >> yeah, absolutely. it's a question of who is going to pay. march credit connolly, thank you so much. >> speaking of starbucks, a lot of people love fall rolls around and that pumpkin spice latte is added to the menu. for a pennsylvania family, that drink is important. a small act of kindness in

following georgia football. but the offense scores a ton of points. the question really is georgia a national title contender? absolutely. especially considering that their resume includes two wins over top ten teams. georgia scored a touchdown inside the final two minutes yesterday to beat sixth ranked lsu in an epic back and forth battle. and the first month of the season georgia has wins over south carolina and lsu. so they're now well positioned to make another run at a third straight sec east title. number one in the lineup section, the atlanta braves. they head into the playoffs itching for a final. chris johnson got thrown out at first base. down by a run. and watch the hitting coach. he does not like johnson's hustle. so he gives him an earful. the braves, they play today. they need a win and they need a cardinals loss to lock up home field advantage throughout the playoffs. fans of the kentucky high school

the republican led house passed a spending bill overnight to fund the government but delay obama care by a year. the bill also repeeled a tax on medical devices which is intended to help pay for the affordable health care act. number two, if you think your social calendar is busy, the nsa might think so, too. here's why.
according to a "new york times" report, the agency has been using personal data to track america's social connections including the time of travel and who you're traveling with. the agency, of course, has been under fire after recent leak of information by former government contractor edward snowden. >> number three, new information made here on "new day" about the man suspected of gunning down a pastor in a louisiana church friday. last hour police told us the suspect wood row carry is a deacon and member of the church. he fled after he shot harris in front of the congregation. he's been charged with second-degree murder. >> number four, the olympic torch starts the journey to russia for the 2014 olympics. we watched it live this morning on "new day." the flame was lit this morning in greece. now it starts the journey around greece and from there it heads to moscow for a tour around rush why. the opening ceremonies for the

republicans will get most of the blame for the shutdown. is this going to cost control? maybe the senate is out of reach now. will this cost control of the house in 2014? >> i think we can make our partisan case for who's going to get the most blame here. i think there is a great deal of risk for republicans as part of a government shutdown. you mention the 1995 shutdown. so many folks in the media will again i think portray this through the same lens which is this is going to be a negative for republicans if the government were to shut down. but i think jefr all, the -- you know, the issue of obama care, i still think is a big republican -- is a big winning issue for republicans. so many people across the country right now are feeling the taxes, they're feeling their health care changing as a result of obama care. and that's going to be a big issue in the midterm elections. >> what's the role here, donna, of people who just do not understand what obama care is? we talked earlier about a man
who heard the term obama care and said i guess it means he cares about people. >> it means affordable health care coverage for all people. look, i was around during the last government shutdown. i was a government employee. let me tell you, it's not fun being told that you're unessential and don't have to come back to work. so much uncertainty. this will cost the economy over a billion dollars. this is stupid. it's embarrassing. enough already. i think it's important that the american people know that over 100 million citizens have already benefited from obama care, the affordable care act. and starting tuesday, they'll be able to go to these health marketplaces all across the country, go on www.health.gov and get the information. don't listen to your congressmen, i'm sorry. don't listen to them. go and get the information for yourself. >> the congressmen also are listening to the american people. many of them say they do not
like that. granted, i'll give that you there is a percentage of liberals who say that it doesn't go far enough that's in this percentage of people who don't like it. it would not be unprecedented for this administration to either not enforce a law that it does not like or to delay something. we're speaking about drug policies and states that have legalized recreational use of marijuana. doma when it was a decision that could have been made by the administration. so what do you say to people who ask why not delay this until people understand and until people know exactly what it means for their life and for their business? >> they're given exemptions based on recommendations that they got from, you know, businesses and others to allow them time to implement some of the crucial parts of the law. but i don't buy this argument that the administration has gone around cherry picking things they like and dislike about our constitution and our law. that is right-wing talking points. i strongly and firmly disagree with that analysis. look, i think it's important
that people understand how it impacts them. i own a small business. it will impact the way i conduct myself. it's not raising taxes on my business. as an individual and as a woman, i'm no longer pre-existing condition. my premiums i've seen my premiums go up. i've seen them come down because of the rebates. so i really do think that people should know what's inside the law and not listen to all of the foolish stuff that we're hearing from capitol hill and it's quite embarrassing, like i said. >> i want to make a point. i don't think it's right-wing or left wing. i think it changed the way that people look at their health care. it's gone from being a very patient centric thing to a government centric thing. >> how? >> you're seeing it abe infeffe economies. many businesses are cutting employees from full time work to part time work to deal with the law. that is affecting local and regional economies. >> walmart yesterday disputed that, kevin. i think that is erroneous.
look, what is happening with this is the -- as the bill rolls out, remember, obama care or the affordable care act has been the law now for a long time. i mean we've been implementing this law -- not we -- the government has been implementing this law for a long time. what the republicans are afraid is once the american people see they might get lower premiums, you know, people who will get access to health care, they're afraid of the rollout. >> let me get in here. we're running out of time. i really to ask you this question. how many republicans really believe in their heart of hearts that 42nd or 43rd vote will be productive and how many see this is a 42nd or 43rd purity test they have to take because of the views of maybe a ted cruz or a mike lee? >> i think it goes beyond a purity test. many of the members that continue to vote against it and folks within the conference that continue to press for this issue believe that this is part of the long strategy to help to change
the law, get rid of the law and then move to a different type of patient centric law. >> is it working? >> legislating in washington is not an event, it's a process. the other thing is that many voters -- many of the members believe that this is them aligning themselves with voter frustration about this law. the spending, taxes and regulation that's are all part of it. >> we have to wrap it up there. >> then why do the republicans use this to even balance the budget over the next ten years? they're using the savings from obama care, affordable care act to balance the budget. they're using this to raise money. that's what they're doing. fund-raising. >> donna brazile, democratic strategy, kevin madden, thank you so much for your insight this morning. >> thank you. >> still to come on "new day," after a year in a notorious iranian prison, there is renewed hope for the return of an american pastor who has the latest. ♪

between president obama and the iranian president. the president made an appeal for the american's safe return. i'm joined by his wife and the executive director of the american center for law and justice who represents the abadinis. first of all, how did you react when you were told that president obama had requested the release of your husband? >> i was jumping with joy. it's the news i've been waiting for all year. it was best news i've heard all year since his arrest. >> do you know, when you were in new york, this was amazing. it just shows your determination. you were able to get to the iranian delegation. you were staying at the same hotel and actually able to hand someone a letter which you believe now may be going up the chain in iran. do you think the tide may be
turning? >> the new york trip was amazing and being able to speak with the delegations and hand the letter and getting confirmation that they would give the letter to the president and now it's very hopeful. i'm very hopeful. it's been a great week. i'm very thankful for president obama and about the phone call and him following up about said and the other americans who were in prison in iran. >> now your husband converted from islam to cyst antti 13 years ago. i'm going to ask this to your lawyer now. the government is charged him with undermining the government. what do you say to those allegations? >> think about the fact that this actually dates back to charges from 2000 to 2005. in the legal suit brought by the prosecutors in iran after he was arrested by the revolutionary guard in july of 2012, he was first under house arrest and then put into prison september 26th. we mark that one year anniversary and president obama now made this historic phone
call which we appreciate so much. the first phone call between these two top leaders since the revolution in iran and saeed's name is mentioned. b saeed was charged with undermining the government for illegal assembly because of work with house churches between the years 2000 and # 005. this was his ninth trip back to iran over the last three years building an orphanage that was about to open in northern iran. that orphanage was going to serve muslim kids and the government approved it. >> earlier this week cnn spoke with the president and asked about a possible return for saeed and two others that had gone missing. this is what he said through a translator. >> translator: i asked what governments can do, perhaps on this issue. i think it's a very positive
gesture for any government to do what it can to help. but i would like to say that we also have people who are in prison here in the united states and our judiciary is independent and based on a constitution the government has no right to interfere in the judicial process. >> you know, it sort of raises the question, is he suggest being some sort of a prisoner swap? jordan, what was your response to that? this is about the judicial system? >> well, in iran there is one thing that overrides the entire judicial system and that is the ayatollah. the ayatollah in iran is the supreme leader. and the supreme leader, unlike a president of the united states or president of iran can do and tell people to do what he wants and what he thinks is the best interest. i think by president obama setting the stage up and, again thanking the president. i want to thank cnn. i think the only reason saeed is alive today in this prison and even having the discussion about a pos ubl relea possible releas
because of media coverage and it began with the question being asked to the iranian president. but we all know that iran is not like a democracy like the united states. there is a supreme leader. if this is a bar to getting to the table a nuclear negotiations, well, this is -- this should be. we absolutely believe this should be a precondition for the united states taking more steps towards diplomacy with iran because they've got two americans in jail, one american missing that we believe they know -- iran said they would help find. that all needs to happen before we get to the next step. >> one of them is a former soldier. the other is a former fbi. final word. in the op-ed, you said that your two children no longer have the former love of their persian heritage. do you think this is something the iranians will view their country differently those here in america? >> you know they will. they're scared. they're scared of iranians here
to go back to think they're friendly, to believe they're friendly. and unfortunately, it's having effect on the next generations. my kids are afraid to go to iran now. they loved going back and seeing their grandparents and now their views have changed. i do believe unless the iranian government changes and allows for freedom of thought and religion, it will affect the next generation. >> thank you so much. we appreciate it. we're out of time. good luck to you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> coming up on "new day," the yankees didn't make the playoffs. but a very different high stakes game is just beginning for the slugger a-rod who is about to take on the mlb in a fight for his legacy. that's next. we got the ball rolling. in cities across the country, coca-cola joined with communities and local leaders to roll out a summer filled with activity. from atlanta to l.a., people all over found that getting moving can be fun.

movie "gravity"? it looks really good. it is sandra bullock, george clooney. bullock plays a medical engineer on her first shuttle mission. everything is fine until this happened, until the shuttle for some reason it gets destroyed. and then they're just stranded in space. >> okay, that is just terrifying. could any of the crazy plot play out in real life? 400 miles above our heads? michelle turner brings all the rumors back down to earth. >> a thrilling, nerve shredding phenomenon, that is critics describing "gravity." >> what do i do? >> whether it comes to space movies, its no secret hollywood can be light on facts and heavy on fiction. >> i was in grad school, we went to see the "core" and there were 20 or 10 geo physicists in the audience. we were laughing at different times and the rest of the audience. >> reporter: as for the science behind this movie, ucla's
professor says things are looking up. >> from a scientific standpoint, the moviemakers did a very good job. it was based on a shuttle servicing mission that has happened. they paid attention to the fact that sound doesn't propagate in space. they also tried hard to portray the conservation of momentum. so when sandra and george collide with each other and they will sort of bounce off of each other. i would give it an a. >> reporter: sandra bullock and george clooney co-star in the 90-minute epic. >> the most important thing is it to get the science right on screen. >> because the minute you see air crack or you see something that doesn't feel right, the audience is going to go, no, not there. you lost me. >> reporter: the film's budget included scientistses, new light being technology and a gravity-free simulator. >> a lot of that for me was also to see how a camera would react there. >> do you copy? >> reporter: to portray an
astronaut, bullock trained with a real nasa veteran. >> the thing i needed to know from her is physically what her body was doing. >> reporter: she notes there are a few moments of movie magic. >> there is one seen where you see the space shuttle spinning wildly out of control because it is hit by a piece of debris. they did that calculation. it would have to be about 1,000 kilograms, about a ton of material. space trash that big would have been tracked by nasa. >> every single piece larger than the size of my fist is tracked. >> reporter:al for the film suggestion that they only had six months of training. >> that is implausible. >> reporter: enjoyable, acclaimed and for the most part realistic. >> i can't breathe. >> reporter: michelle turner, cnn, hollywood. >> now even more excited about seeing this movie. >> you know what? there is a certain amount of claust phobia that would just go. the thought of being left to drift out in sp
