8:20 pm
kind of health hazards there, and this could really blow up into a major epidemic, so we need to do something. and so the president really wants to look at all of our different options. the police, obviously, need to be supported. because there are many people on the street who are not orderly individuals, and they impact on the freedom that other people have to even walk down the street. so that must be looked at. we must understand that, as a nation, we have failed a lot of the mentally incapable people by just throwing them out. and not supporting them. some people think that his compassion, but that's not compassion at all. we have to really begin to work with the american psychiatric association, and some others, in terms of what kind of programs are going to work for these individuals. we want to maximize their freedom, but we also want to
8:21 pm
free all the other citizens. >> shannon: so you're going to visit a number of cities there during this run through california. the governor has sent a letter to the president, signed with other local officials. governor newsom said this: "state and local governments have ramped up action to lift families out of property. in contrast, your administration -- he says to the president -- cut public housing and other programs." how do you respond? >> i would say, since i've been in this office, there have been no cuts. people have talked about it, but there have not been any cuts. so i'm not sure that's an accurate statement at all. but, you know, just throwing money at the problem is not going to work. people have been trying that for a long period of time, and when we look at places like california, that have excessively high pricing for rentals, it means that every year, as those prices go up, the
8:22 pm
cost of the subsidies goes up, so we have to spend more money to take care of the same number of people. that's just not something that's working. what we need to do is analyze the reasons that the costs are so high, and it's because of all the regulatory barriers and restrictions. in california, it's even solar panels on all the new constructs. that just raises the price ridiculously. in san francisco, the median home price in the san francisco bay area is $1.7 million. who can afford that? so we really need to go to the supply side here. what can we do to create more supply? and if we have adequate supply, that will automatically take care of the pricing. basic economics. >> shannon: you visited san francisco today, so i want to give you a chance to respond to a not flattering --
8:23 pm
20 minutes with residents and reporters, no concrete promises that federal funding for handling homelessness. is that a fair assessment? >> of course not. i made it very clear that i wanted to hear their side of the story. i wanted to hear from some of the residence there. we want to look at all of the possibilities. i also told them, you know, this is not us giving you money. i said we need to be able to sit down, we need to be able to explore what the causes of the homelessness are. and we need to look at best practices. what are the things that have worked around this country, and other parts of the world? and let's take a logical approach to this, not an ideological approach. >> shannon: i know the department is looking at a lot of unique, different ways to go about tackling some of these root problems. we will follow your visit through those meetings tomorrow in l.a. and other places.
8:24 pm

recordkeeping issues, pain management, medication issues, all kinds of things. how do someone like that continue operating for decades? >> it's shameful. as you pointed out. there were so many things, incompetence, lack of professional standards, lack of reporting, lack of cleanliness, lack of keeping adequate staffing. i can tell you the indiana department of health was after him for quite some time, and prolific is an understatement, in terms of what he was doing. but the conditions were awful. while abortion is legal, states like indiana have the right to regulate that process, and part of the regulation is making sure that operators like dr. klopfer or operating in a healthy environment as possible, that's clearly not the case here. we do anticipate some additional, frightening findings, as we continue this investigation. >> shannon: very quickly, just about out of time. he talked about regulation, and
8:45 pm
there is some pushback about the new, very tough, pro-life, or antiabortion, as a parental call it, legislation out there. "cbs news" reporting this, they say last year, the national abortion federation recorded a record high 1,369 reported violent acts against abortion clinics, saying providers interviewed by "cbs news" i have seen a direct correlation between the rise in violence and the wave of antiabortion legislation passed this year. any comments on the? >> i think we are moving in the right direction in terms of indiana, where we are calling on additional regulation to make sure we do situations like this, where we have unborn children that can be disposed in a humane way, through cremation and burial, recognizing the dignity of human life. these are the types of things we need to move towards, and i'm thankful that indiana and many other states are moving in that direction. >> shannon: i know people across the spectrum on this particular issue are shocked at what has been found in this doctors home here we will stay with you on the case. indiana attorney general curtis

political analyst gianno caldwell. >> great to be here, shannon. >> shannon: everyone is waiting in d.c. to see what will come from these two put something to the floor for a vote. here is house speaker nancy pelosi and senate leader mitch mcconnell saying i want to see with the president wants, and then we move forward. >> i don't know why a leader in the senate would abdicate his responsibilities, we can the institution he leads, because the president doesn't want it. >> shannon: your reaction? >> i can find about ten statements were nancy pelosi has said she was waiting to see what president obama wanted to do before she acted. if that statement is totally inaccurate. she has done it before. truth be told, president trump does want to act on this, and or two additional men very important to this debate, senator mcconnell and senator lindsey graham, which all gun control must go through his committee. the truth of the matter is we
8:53 pm
recognize something must be done, but we do not want to infringe on individual, second amendment rights. we need to enforce the laws currently on the books, in addition to continuing to figure out how we can figure out who is mentally disabled and who shouldn't have a gun. that is what the debate should be about right now, not politics, which you see a lot of democrats doing right now, trying to score political poin points. >> shannon: the white house has a lot of behind-the-scenes conversation going on, told the attorney general has been talking to folks on the hill, and there is negotiating going on. in the meantime, some democrats out there why running for president and talking about the fact there should be mandatory buybacks, others call that confiscation. democrat senator chris coons is worried about how that'll play with people like beto o'rourke making was kind of statements. here is what he said. >> i frankly think that cliff will be played for years at second amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying democrats are coming for your guns.
8:54 pm
>> shannon: richard, is it counterproductive to go that far? or is it time to have those conversations? >> baidoa rock was completed out of mind when he made that comment. let's focus on the senate floor tonight and what is happening on the senate floor since we have had -- what is happened in the house since the democrats have been in control. we have passed a bill that said no fly, no buy. everybody gets a background check there last month, 50 people lost their lives because of a mass shooting. a couple weeks ago, parents sent their kids to school with bulletproof backpacks, and what we have gotten from this white house and mitch mcconnell is the same: we will wait and see. thoughts and prayers. the president said he doesn't want to confiscate guns, but this bill has nothing to do with confiscating guns, and everything to do with ensuring that bad people don't get guns, and they don't go to walmart or public places and shoot people up, and that is what we're trying to prevent. it's sad that mitch mcconnell won't move an inch when it comes to protecting the lives of the american people. >> shannon: is what out there so far, that has made it through the house, are those of substantive measures that would
8:55 pm
be able to stop or would have stopped some of these recent shootings? >> i mean, studies have shown us, the data has shown us that is not true. interestingly enough, i was just in chicago interviewing about ten gang members, and i asked them what laws on the books or could be on the books to prevent you from having a gun? and they said there isn't a law, they are going to always get their guns, always shoot people or rob people. >> shannon, he is right -- >> we think about chicago as a leading example of what gun control policies have done, and they don't work in that way, so we must make sure we are not infringing on individuals rights. >> shannon: we've got to leave it there or we will get cut off. but come back, this issue is far from over. okay, our midnight here, they have been fighting for the lives of children for 60 years. they started what is now known as child health, the largest child advocacy organization in the world. i have seen their work first
