7:03 am
i'm starting to wonderer how long the shutdown is going on. >> the conflict continues. today is the ninth day. outrage is rising over the impact of the grieving military families. the government says it cannot give financial assistance to relatives of service members kiln in combat. >> the bodyies of four of those american soldiers are coming home this morning. >> reporter: norah and charlie, there have been 17 servicemen and women killed in combat since this shutdown started and normally their families would get $100,000 from the military within 36 hours to help pay for immediate needs. but those payments like everything else has gotten caught up in a partizan feud. >> military death benefits help the families members travel.
7:04 am
they also get help to pay for the funeral. but for the families of jennifer more ray no and 15 others the money isn't there because coop is fighting over how to fund the government. >> i say to those families your government has let you down in your time of need. there's no excuse for that. >> luckily there are people like this. >> we'll take care of the airplane ride and the out of pocket expenses. we'll take care of the hotel. >> his son james was killed in iraq in 2007 which led him to start the lead to way fund. now he's vowing to fill the void left by a crippled government. >> you can't expect a family that sacrifices their child, all right, or their young man or their wife and not be able to step up and take care of them. it's morally wrong. >> others have stepped up too
7:05 am
including the fisher house foundation which is dedicated to giving wounded troops and their families a place to stay while they heal but now they say they'll pay the full $100,000 for family during the shutdown. >> i was a no-brainer. we needed to bridge the gap for the families because the government wasn't doing what they were supposed to. >> some believe that the military is the one to blame, not congress. >> we give broad authority to the department of defense to pay all kinds of bills such as this and frankly i think it's disgraceful that they're withholding the benefits. speaker boehner argues that the bill they passed last week also covered the death benefits. pentagon lawyers disagree. today the house is going to take up another bill in just a few hours that would explicitly fund the benefits while democrats argue the best way to cover this
7:06 am
and all the other problems is to simply reopen the government. >> charlie i find this story outrageous. i was with a father yesterday, he has a 26-year-old son who served overseas and he didn't get his 500 dollars disability check and he was calling his parents for money. >> it is clear evidence that the country feels very strongly about people who go in harm's way and then nothing else that happens should affect them. >> the idea that the debt ceiling isn't a big deal, if you reach out to most americans, they're feeling it already. this morning two republican congressional leaders are putting the blame square on the president. eric cantor. in the wall street journal, paul ryan says the president has
7:07 am
negotiated before and he can do so now. meanwhile president obama is putting new pressure on the gop. major garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> good morning. the president at his press conference said he would negotiate with republicans but only after they reconditionally open up the government. before talking to republicans the president will meet here with the house demeanors this afternoon. as for the budget itself the president offered this. >> to all the american people i apologize that you have to go through this stuff every three months it seems like. >> president obama was talking about frequent washington squabbles over dollars and cents. the president said it was time to break if new problem of congress threatening to default. >> we can't make extortion routine as part of democracy. this is not just for me. it's also for my successors in
7:08 am
office, whatever party they're from. how speaker john boehner said the president will eventually have to back down. >> there's going to be a negotiation here. we can't raise the debt ceiling without doing something about what's driving us to borrow more money and to live beyond or means. >> house republicans say the partial government shutdown can end if the president will agree to talk about reducing the deficit without raising taxes. >> the president's position that, listen we're not going to sit down and talk to you until you surrender is just not sustainable. it's not our system of government. when it comes to the debt limit i agree with the president. we should pay your bills. i didn't come here to shut down the government. i certainly didn't come here to default on our debt. >> but the president dismissed any budget talks that did not include at least some higher taxes. >> i don't know why democrats
7:09 am
right now would agree to a format that takes off the table all of the things they care about and is confined to the things that the republicans care about. >> the president also said default caused by a failure to increase the government's authority to borrow money could create economic disaster. but a sizable number of house republicans believe the president can avoid default by paying bondholders first and other bills over time. the president's conference was set to scare the republicans off of their belief. >> president obama is expected to nominate janet yellen this afternoon. ben bernanke ends his term in january. if confirmed she will be the first woman to lead the fed or any central bank in the world. anthony mason joins us. who is janet yellen. >> she's 6 # 67 years old. i this i you can make the argument that cease the most
7:10 am
experienced. she's been vice chair since 2010. in between that she taught at u cal berkeley and she headed president clinton's council of economic advisers and he's married to a nobel prize winner than she met in the cafeteria. >> she sat along ben bernanke for the last three or four years and she's a co-architect of the budget. >> we now have a woman who's going to be the most powerful economic policymaker in the world. >> i think you can argue she's going to be the most powerful woman in american history. >> all of american history? >> well, when you think about it she's going to be in charge of the united states economy, the largest and most important economy in the world. yeah, i think you can make that case. >> who would be second in. >> that's another -- >> let's ask about the asian markets are up on this. what about bond buying which is
7:11 am
everybody's concern? >> the big concern is what happens in washington which ultimately is going to affect -- that's janet yellen's problem almost right away. we expected the fed to start cutting back on stimulus right about now. i they didn't do it in september. >> clear standing through confirmation confirmation. >> it looks that way. i'm not in washington so i don't want to answer that question. her credentials are impeccable. and a rupture in a natural gas pipeline caused an explosion overnight in northwest oklahoma. it sent flames more than 50 stories into the sky. the massive fire could be seen more than 50 miles away in kansas. it forced several families from their homes. 75 fair fighters from three states brought the fire under control. no injuries are reported. authorities are still trying to figure out how it all happened. the government shutdown is
7:12 am
hampering the response this morning to the salmonella out break. more than 270 people in 18 states have gotten sick. usda blames raw chick enprocessed at fosterer farm facilities in climp. this morning there is still no recall. good morning. how is that affecting us? >> we're very concerned that the furlough is having an impact. for one thing, no chicken this morning is being recalled even though they've identify three different plants that may be producing contaminated chicken and sending it to the market. >> how is that a result of the shut joub? >> well an outbreak occurs the state starts the investigation, but the outbreak is actually lyly analyzed and really categorized
7:13 am
by the cdc. they need to go to fda and usda to identify the food source. for the last week both experts at cda, fda an usda have all been furloughed. even though they're coming back into work at cdc, we still zont have full capacity for this investigation. >> what other foods? >> it's chicken coming out of three plants in california foster farm economic chicken producers. usda told us they're not quite sure what type of product it is or what the labels are. but again, this is unusual. by this point we often have a recall in place. a key issue here is that the salmonella involved is antibiotic resistant. and that sal mamonella is too hot
7:14 am
for you to handle in your kitchen. if you have foster farms and you're in question bring it back for a refund. >> thank you for that. there's word this morning that the white house is taken a major response to the bloodshed in egypt. the u.s. is expected to say they're going to suspend hundreds of dollars of aid. margaret brennan is at the state department. margaret good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you and to charlie. how to deal with egypt since the military military military has been a force. now a palsy shift is underway. hundreds of millions of dollar of military aid to egypt is being held back. of the $1.3 billion the u.s. gives egypt each year, half of that has already been handed over.
7:15 am
the remaining $585 million is suspended. the administration is withholding that aid due to the actions of the military led ra geem. since the army outed mo ham ma morsi in july hundreds have died in political violence. 59 were killed just this sunday. in the last three months the government has arrested nearly 2,000 people mainly morsi reporters. violence is escalating. in his u.n. address two weeks ago president obama acknowledged the importance of the relationship between the two countries but said that the future of u.s. aid was in question. >> the united states will maintain a constructive relationship with the infirmed government that promotes core interest, but we have not proceeded with the delivery of certain military systems and our support will depend upon egypt's progress in pursuing a more
7:16 am
democrat path. >> reporter: but any sus spengs of u.s. support will likely have little financial impact. oil rich gulf countries have muched in $7 billion worth of new financial aid. the state department says no final decisions have been made. the policy is under review. we expect to get some details in the coming days but the administration is walking a fine line. they are not cutting off the egyptian military but they're all saying we won't accept the status quo. >> can you tell us what ask the u.s. action that iran is preparing this package, proposal offer to limit the military program? >> reporter: if iran agrees it would be a significant step and the u.s. is enthusiastic about that. we do know they plan to make a con skreet proposal next month
7:17 am
and they're expected to respond to a previous offer where some sanctions in exchange for halting production of weapon's grade material. but that's on the table. we don't know how quickly iran will move to give access to all of its nuclear sites. and will congress allow the administration to lift even some of the saingtss. >> and new jersey governor chris christie is facing an easy reelection campaign so much so he's be asked about the next step. he's got a substantial lead over the democrat challenger. the two faced off in a debate last night and we wanted to know if christie plans to run for president in 2016. >> i am not going to confirm tonight if i am or am not running for president. i don't think anybody expects anyone three years away to tell anybody what they're going to
7:18 am
do. i won't make those decisions until i have to. i can do this job and deal with my future and that's exactly what i will do. >> christie says his reelection campaign offers a road map for republicans naturally. >> that will not be the first time he's asked that question. >> no doubt. the other was planned in hopes of planning a suspect in the benghazi attack. libya consented weeks or perhaps even months ago. the "washington post" says that the cia is calling thousands of furlougheds workers back today. britain's independent works at a passenger forced to land a small plane in england.

the pilot got sick at the controlsance later died. the passenger had never flown a plane. there was no one else on board. it was a bumpy landing but one instructor said the passenger did a remarkable job. >> the los angeles times looks at a new study that says dads are taking on more housework and childcare but they still do less good morning. roberta gonzales in the kpix 5 weather center. as you are heading out the door this morning, plan on the coolest day of the workweek. currently, 43 in napa. otherwise, in the 50s. winds up to 12 as this area of low pressure digs to the south, nicks the eastern and southern portion of the bay area. as it passes it will leave us with full-on sunshine. 64 at the coast, 60s and 70s across the bay to the mid-70s inland. full-on sunshine on thursday through tuesday.

he's allegedly seen on video hitting and kicking the suv before the driver was attacked. our senior correspondent john miller is a former deputy commissioner with the new york police department. good morning. >> good morning. >> he's four days later being charged. >> it's bad day for the nypd. remember this is a story that doesn't start out as a good day because they had a detective on the scene who was undercover, took no action to intervene and waited four days to come forward and say i was there. that got worse yesterday when they reviewed the videotapes this week that they received from other sources other than the you tup video. that see him banging out the back window of the suv during the incident that led up to the
7:32 am
man. that changed the calculus to is it a departmental matter to a criminal matter. >> also is there evidence he lied and did not come forward. >> right. the story he gave was i was there but i wasn't involved and this certainly took a turn yesterday going from well, will he be suspended to he's under arrest. >> we're watching this unfold. this thing is growing every day. they're identifying them bit by bit. >> it is. and think that the police under the investigation may expand also. you have a possible universe of five, maybe six officers whose identities are known who may have at one stage or another been riding with this group or may or may not have been there for different -- >> five or six officers. >> that's right. so you've got the one who was arrested yesterday, you have another undercover officer from the internal affairs division who was there for part of it.
7:33 am
two officers who were identified as being there but not necessarily the assault, maybe somewhere earlier and you have yet one more after that. so they're going to be going through this process in order to say who was where, who did what who saw what? >> i mean doesn't it beg the obvious question? what are five or six officers doing as part of this bike gang? >> this wasn't a bike gang per se. this was a day where motorcycles were -- this is their marauding through new york day and it involves a number of motorcycle clubs and enthusiasts. this group on the west side highway wasn't all one group. they seemed to have found each other and were riding together and this got out of control. >> we talked about this before. is there really a creed within -- if you're undercover and there's violence you try to stop the violence. >> if you're undercover one of your primary jobs is not to break cover. that doesn't mean you can't
7:34 am
intervene and say let's stop this. you don't jump out and say i'm a secret police officer. the thing here is he wasn't intervening heefrm he was part of it. there's something else we haven't discussed. he's an undercover in intelligence operations, deep terrorist cases, organized crime groups. there's a case where they may have two years in it where the bad guys just looked up and said, hey, we haven't seen this guy, where is he and when his name and face comes out, it won't be the same face and name they know. >> and a lot of hard work down the drain. >> now they have to go to a plan b for. >> all right. john miller thank you. and congress gets a status report this morning on the affordable care act. the website opened more than a week ago. only a handful have

7:40 am
place. you should be looking at a stencil of a dog peeing on a hydrant. >> of course, street artists face liability. many of the banksy new york pieces have already been tagged or defaced. some building owners have painted right over it. >> the last thing i want is for my building to be vandalized and its value to skyrocket. >> reporter: banksy is in on the joke. >> he's saying don't take me too seriously. he's kind of laughing all the way to the bank. a separate location or installation is expected each day and each location is announced on the artist's website but he only gives a general vicinity so it's a bit of a scavenger hint.

7:42 am
once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. [ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for patients currently well managed on warfarin there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban, without talking to the doctor who prescribes it as this may increase the risk of having a stroke. get help right away if you develop any symptoms like bleeding unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners.
7:43 am
talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto® and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit

good morning gayle, good morning, charlie, good morning, everyone. it's 8:00 a.m. in the west and welcome back to "cbs this morning." the government shutdown means no death benefits for families of americans killed in battle. congress faces outrage while charities try to make up the difference. the debate over obama care continues. some americans are leaving the country to find affordable treatment. we'll look at the risks and advantages of medical tourism. and why do americans admire president kennedy so much after 50 years? a revealing look at jfk's white house. but first here's a look at today's eye opener @ 8. normally their families would get money from the
8:01 am
military within 36 hours, but those payments have gotten caught up in a partisan feud. >> outrage is rising over the impact on military families. >> it's morally wrong. >> the president said he would negotiate with republicans but only after they unconditionally reopen the government and take steps to avoid default. >> we can't make extortion routine. >> i think you'll argue she's going to be the most powerful woman in american history. she'll be in charge of the united states economy, the largest economy and the most important economy in the world. >> they see their own detective allegedly banging out the back window of the suv during the incident that led up to the man being dragged from the car. a bad day for the nypd. >> how do you explain banksy's art to a person who has never seen street art before. >> he's kind of laughing all the way to the bank. >> for the last week both experts at cdc, fda and usda have all been furloughed.
8:02 am
>> folks, this shutdown has made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, although that could just be a reaction from uninspected shrimp. >> this morning's eye opener @ 8 is presented by benefiber. it is day nine of the partial government shutdown. more americans are feeling its effects. federal agriculture inspectors cannot do multistate investigations of food safety. a salmonella outbreak in chicken now covers 18 states. also the fbi is working with a skeleton staff at its headquarters. that is affecting training and other paurt functions. then yesterday 7,000 workers who handle veterans benefits were furloughed. congress is focusing on the families of americans killed in combat who are not getting their benefits. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. >> reporter: good morning. 17 servicemen and women have been killed in combat since the start of this shutdown and
8:03 am
normally their families would receive $100,000 from the military within 36 hours. but those benefits have gotten caught up in a partisan feud. luckily some private foundations have stepped in to fill the void including one called army rangers lead the way. >> you can't expect a family that sacrifices their child, all right, or their young man or their wife and not be able to step up and take care of them. it's morally, morally wrong. >> reporter: regan's son james was killed in iraq in 2007. in congress the fight continues over who is to blame for this lack of benefits. house speaker john boehner argues that the bill that congress passed last week to pay military members during a shutdown also covers these benefits, but pentagon attorneys say they've looked at the law and they disagree. so the house is going to pass another bill today explicitly
8:04 am
authorizing these payments. democrats, of course argue that the best way to make these payments and everything else in the government work is to fund it no strings attached. >> thank you nancy. no high level negotiations are scheduled to end the budget standoff, but president obama and house speaker john boehner say they're waiting for the other side to back down but some observers are seeing the first signs of a possible compromise. john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> evidence of a possible compromise? >> well it's a little window that opens, but probably not enough to get more than your fingers through. the president said that it would be okay to have a short level and while that exit is a two-part process, lift the debt limit but then have negotiations that would quickly follow on there. the next hurdle would be to get republicans to agree to do that. to do that, you'd have to have
8:05 am
negotiations be binding and full of details, the kind of details the president probably won't agree to. >> are both sides really trying to save face and is that possible as we enter day nine? >> the polls show that everybody's face is getting uglier with it. the republicans are faring worse. i think they're trying to find an exit but basically they're trying to save face and blame the other guy, and we've been stuck in that position for a while now. >> speaker john boehner has reportedly told some of his fellow republicans that he's got something up his sleeve to end this whole thing. what is that something? >> well he said that before. remember, he had plan "b" during the fiscal cliff talks, a plan that his conservatives rejected. partially what that is is just to buy time. the plan seems to be basically to put pressure on the president. say you cannot sustain this posture of no negotiation. clearly in the press conference yesterday the president is feeling a bit of that pinch,
8:06 am
i'll negotiate, i just won't negotiate on the specific question of raising the debt limit and tying something to it. i'm not sure there are any mysteries here that john boehner's got in his back pocket. >> do you think we're close to a turning point? i ask that because you have the u.s. chamber of commerce the national association of manufacturers, wall street ceos are calling republicans on capitol hill, then you have these outrageous stories about veterans not getting their benefits. do you think something's about to change? >> i don't know. there's a lot of -- you know all the experts that come out and say a debt limit breach would be disastrous. you then have some voices saying it wouldn't be that bad, the administration would be able to prioritize. what the experts say, if you're flying in a plane, if the tail comes off, yeah the plane won't crash immediately, but it's not good. priority tization is kind of like saying the guys in first class won't fly out the back immediately, right, but they won't be very comforted by this. that kind of scenario that people are talking about should put pressure on lawmakers but
8:07 am
they're not budging much. >> thank you very much john half a century after jfk's assassination we're learning new details about his presidency. we'll take you inside the kennedy white house. >> plus all that mattered on this day in 1985 a lasting tribute to a music legend. can you imagine who it is? the answer is next. big clue. >> the voice is a clue.

the rising cost of health care is causing some americans to find cheaper health care abroad. that's leading to one of the fastest growing sectors in the travel industry medical tourism. peter greenberg is with us. good morning. >> good morning, norah. americans spend more on health care than any other nation and they're causing uninsured or underinsured, many times at a fraction of the cost. 66-year-old john wilson first came to panama on vacation when
8:17 am
he heard about the country's first-class health care system. >> when i was at the airport and met other people coming to panama, they were talking about the medical system here. >> wilson a retired telecom worker from atlanta was told he'd need dental implants an expensive procedure his insurance didn't cover. after extensive research he ended up at panama city. still he wasn't convinced. >> so what did you do? >> i sat down and sat in the main lobby and i would watch people coming out and ask them about the quality of care they got here. they all raved about it. >> before you opened your mouth, you depended on word of mouth. >> absolutely absolutely. >> in colombia and vietnam hip replacements, one of the most popular surgeries average moreless
8:18 am
than $10,000. in the u.s. 50rks$,000. the same can be said. >> how much would these implants have cost you in atlanta? >> with veneers, about $7,000. >> they have indicate tored americans who were educated in the united states. they now work at hospitals affiliated with some of the most reputable hospitals in america including cleveland clinic and johns hopkins. this hospital is run by dr. m oo. >> i do rounded every day.
8:19 am
room by room to touch and see how the patient's doing. >> for some people traveling abroad for medical reasons is not just a money saver but a way to receive treatments not available at home. susan sportsman came here from texas for stem cell treatmentings not approved by the fda. she hopes they'll help cure her arthritis, at least in the short term. >> what i invested here i expect will be a short gain in the long run because i'll be on medications. i won't be under medications. i won't have to have joint replacement, so forth and so on. >> and if worse comes to worse, it's not a bad postcard. >> it's not. it's not bad place. >> finding this institute not only through word of mouth but checking it through a national review board. some of the procedures require a great deal of aftercare.
8:20 am
fars susan sportsman she told us she's pain-free and doing well and she plans to return to panama for additional treatment, and, get this a vacation in the next three months. >> peter, thank you. good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me on. >> you say you find very few benefits in medical tourism. why? >> you know, there are benefits in terms of cost but you take an additional risk by going somewhere where you're not sure of the quality you're getting. you're another sure of the accreditation of the institution and you're taking a risk. if something goes wrong, then what do you do? >> why are things so much cheaper? >> obviously we have a very aggressive legal system. so liability is a tremendous cost. bay bore is cheaper.
8:21 am
a lot of our call centers are being exported there. perhaps the implants are cheaper but we don't know what they are. >> how do you find out, though if -- better question. are there some things that are good for medical tourism and some that are not? heart trance plants ought to have some reservation. >> there's risk to any surgery and that's the point you have to drive home. even cosmetic surgery as we learned from some famous people's parents having dade from it. u you can die. you really have to waive that against the benefit of saving money. >> are you saying they should. go overseas? >> i can't say that. some do very well. eesk though the risks are small, the consequences are very large.
8:22 am
>> back to charlie's question. i thought that was a good one. if you were going to do it for instance what would you do? >> i know any surgery has risks. >> personally unless i knew personally the physician and i knew the accreditation of the physician, no i would not. >> same with the guy who's standing outside the waiting room what did you think, what did you think doesn't seem the best way. >> how was it? i don't know you, i don't know the doctor. if somebody was thinking about doing it what would be the top recommendation? >> representative the facility and the physicians. a lot of these physicians say they were trained in the united states. that might mean they came for one month and still say they did that. you need to care care of who
