continuing and will even get worse. what can we do about it? we're all waiting to see. we're following a lot of news, including this. this battle over health care matters to you, your kids, the families. let's get after it. >> health care is a very complicated subject. honestly, nobody can be totally happy. >> there's no way in god's earth this bill should be passed. >> they've promised too much. there's no way the republican bill brings down premiums. >> the plan would not allow individuals to fall through the cracks. we would not pull the rug out from anybody. >> there's no way we should be voting on this next week. no way. >> if he had the information, why didn't he do something about it? >> it's not like we had an immediate, clear snapshot of what the russians were up to. it evolved over time. >> for donald trump criticizing obama was a bit like someone receiving stolen property and blaming the police for not stopping the theft.
good morning. welcome to your "new day." it is monday, june 26th. 8:00 in the east. alison is off. brianna keilar is here. thank you. >> of course. >> the senate health care bill. party leaders are trying to get more support as they push for a vote this week. the trump administration vows there won't be cuts to medicaid. that's simply not true. we'll take you through the spin and the facts. >> meantime, president trump is lashing out against his predecessor, president obama, on russia, as well as his former rival, accusing hillary clinton of colluding with the dnc to beat bernie sanders. suzanne malveaux is live for us on capitol hill. suzanne? >> reporter: president trump throwing his support behind the health care legislation, despite its unclear future.
what will it snb what will it tell us about how many people will potentially lose their coverage? what will be the impact to the premiums? one of the key questions, how does it compare to the house bill cbo which showed 23 million americans would lose their coverage over the course of ten years. that score potentially coming out as early as today. >> i don't think they're far off. famous last words but i think we're going to get there. >> reporter: president trump expressing confidence as senate republicans scramble to get the 50 votes needed to pass the health care bill. >> it's very complicated from the standpoint that you move it this way, this group doesn't like it. you move it over here, very narrow path. and, honestly, nobody can be totally happy. >> reporter: with all democrats opposed to the legislation. republicans can only afford to lose two votes. but there are currently five gop senators who say they can't support the bill as drafted.
>> there's no way the republican bill brings down premiums. look, i've been in medicine 20 years. i'm 54 years old. premiums have never gone down. they're not going to go down after the republican bill. >> the plan in its entirety will absolutely bring premiums down. >> reporter: kellyanne conway says the president is working the phones to try to drum up support. john cornyn told reporters this weekend we're trying to hold him back a little bit, complicating the president's effort, the acknowledgement that he called the house health care bill mean. >> that was my term. i want it see -- i speak from the heart. that's what i want to see. i want to see a bill with heart. >> reporter: the president contradicting his own press secretary, sean spicer and house speaker paul ryan. >> i think that was some kind of misinterpretation of a private meeting. >> reporter: a major point of contention, the 11 million americans insured under obamacare's medicaid expansion, which faces deep cuts under the
senate bill, despite the president's promise not to cut the program. >> save medicare, medicaid and social security without cuts. >> over a ten-year period, medicaid funding will be significantly curtailed and not companied, at this point, with the kind of flexibility we need. >> reporter: kellyanne conway insisting otherwise. >> this is not cuts to medicaid, george. it allows governors more flexibility with medicaid dollars. >> i respectfully disagree with her analysis. i'm very concerned about the cost of insurance for older people with serious, chronic illnesses. >> reporter: it's a race against the clock with congress going on recess this friday. will they vote before then? >> i would like to delay the thing. there's no way we should be voting on this next week. no way. >> reporter: and the health care effort, big part of the conversation that happened over a critical retreat over the weekend, this was a sponsored by
the mega donors conservative koch brothers and leaders of their political network, very critical of legislation as both the house and senate versions of this certainly do not meet their goals. brianna? >> suzanne maldls veaux on the , thank you very much. taking to twitter, saying president obama did nothing and taking a swipe at his former rival as well. joe johns is live from the white house with all of this. joe? >> reporter: brianna, in an interview and in tweets, president trump, who once raised doubts about russian interference in the last election now raising questions about president obama's response to it, even accusing president obama of not doing anything. what obama did do, after the election in december, was to excel about 35 russian diplomats and/or intelligence operatives as well as closing a couple of
compounds in the united states being used by russians, measures seen by many. even democrats, it's too little, too late. president trump now going on the offense. listen. >> i just heard today for the first time that obama knew about russia a long time before the election. and he did nothing about it. but nobody wants to talk about that. if he had the information, why didn't he do something about it? >> the latest trump statements coming on the heels of the tweet from the president just last week, suggesting, among other things, that the democratic national committee had essentially engaged in a big dem hoax by not accepting assistance from the department of homeland security on hacking. this also follows a report in "the washington post" suggesting that the obama administration struggled with how to respond to hacking by the russians out of fear of being perceived as trying to help hillary clinton in the campaign. chris and brianna, back to you.
>> one step up for the president, owning that this actually happened and two steps back of let's blame everybody else. let's discuss this and, of course, what's going on with health care. cnn political analyst ron bro brownstein, a.b. stoddard and cnn political director david challen. we're waiting on the cbo score. the health and human services secretary, tom price and kellyanne conway were out there, making big claims about why this bill was the way to go. let's play tom price. >> the plan we have, we would not have individuals fall through the cracks. we would not lose coverage for anybody that wants for themselves and their family. we want to make certain that health care is available to all americans. >> how, ron, do you take money out of the system and still have
an equal amount or even greater covered? >> you know, in my career i've been covering washington since the early 1980s. i cannot remember a single statement by a cabinet officer that is more misleading than that. cbo analysis is clear, 23 million people will be uninsured with the house bill than under current law. it is possible that the senate bill would remove insurance from slightly fewer people in the ten-year window that the cbo analyzes than the house bill but more people over the long term. they backload their cuts in medicaid. it's important for people to understand that not only would this bill undo what the obamacare did in terms of expanding medicaid, it would eliminate that by 2024. it goes way beyond that to impose and change the fundamental structure of the program in a way that would reduce coverage significantly more beyond that, into the 2025, 2030 period.
and, you know, if you look at -- that's just the medicaid side. if you look at the other side as i said in the last hour, can you go to the kaiser family website. every county in america and in virtually every county in america if you are 60 years old and of moderate income you can face premiums 65 to 70% higher even while younger people will get lower premiums because they can buy less comprehensive coverage. this is a bill that would radically change the federal government's role in health care, take a large amount of money, about $1 trillion out of health care system and fund tax cuts that affect literally only people at 250,000 or above. it is as stark to resources as a bill could provide. >> tom price and kellyanne conway know at least some of that, i would assume. why are note being more honest in their conversation about what's really in this bill?
if doesn't seem like an honest conversation they're having. >> republicans used to talk about how government should get out of health care and why we would have more choice, more access and lower premiums if we got government out of health care. they're not talking about it that way anymore. this comes from the top. it comes from president trump talking about it has to have heart. you see people around him talking about you're not going to lose, what you're not going to lose. it's really overpromising, even though there are things people will lose. when they find that out they'll be twice as angry because they were promised they weren't going to lose it. that's the problem for overpromising. premiums are going to rise in the short term anyway. if people feel them in a negative way next year it will be politically perilous for the
republicans. >> what ancht b. is saying it's reflective on the republican senators who are on the fence or saying they're a step on the no side of the fence. heller, cruz, johnson, of course, lee, rand paul. there are a few others also, right? what do you make of who is saying they're not sure and how real that opposition is. >> i don't think all five of those pictures are on the same boat. some on the conservative side are publicly negotiating their position and able to express opposition at the outfront so they can be brought up or later get something, tout that in a press release back home. mcconnell and the white house knows that. the dean heller opposition is a different kind of story. in a year where republicans are playing offense, this is the one big defensive race that they have in the only state with an incumbent republican that trump lost to hillary clinton.
so, this indicates a much more -- much bigger political problem, i think, than do the conservatives. remember, you didn't have the pictures up there of collins, murkowski, portman. there are other people that expressed real concerns about the bill in its current form. they haven't come out in total opposition like that's other five gentlemen but this will be a battle on the conservative side and the more centrist folks inside the party. >> let's talk about russia. there's big news, that russia meddled in the election, that you have been so kindly pointing out this morning, it wasn't someone on their bed. >> 400 pounder. >> 400-pound guy on a bed. now he's saying it's russia. >> china? >> he said china before. sorry. he's saying it's russia. in the next breath, in this tweet he says it's president
obama's fault. it seems like there's a conversation to be had about how this happened and if the obama administration should have done something different, but isn't this the president, who is supposed to be looking at a way to not have this happen again? >> right. well, i think there's definitely a statute of limitations of a year, maybe, of blaming your predecessor. obama did have a few words about george w. bush in his first term but he was also dealing with a major economic catastrophe. president trump needs a foil. in stepping up to say there was meddling, he had to say it was obama's fault. if you read that lengthy post report, he definitely panicked. and he didn't do enough in time. the ownness is now on the current executive to take care of this threat. he's facing putin at the g20 next month. all eyes are on him either acknowledging this meddling,
announcing plans to retaliate for it or protect us from it happening in the future. very retaliatory act president obama inflicted on the russians to make them evacuate two compounds of theirs in maryland and new york, the trump administration is planning on reversing and giving back to the russians. that they actually penetrated potentially 39 states, stole voter registration data. they absolutely have the capability to get in the ballot box. >> putin going farther than the american president had, saying it could have been some russian patriots involved. sure. then you have the president saying he just heard that the obama administration knew about this and did nothing? really? he has been getting briefings for all these months, was in the paper. mitch mcconnell was in no rush
to do anything about it. that was out there as well. he's only just learning? let alone from "the washington post" which he sometimes calls fake news and is leaning on a source unnamed now to verify his own decisions? >> leave aside the briefings. the intelligence community put out their conclusion in october that the russians were meddling and interfering with the dnc e-mail and podesta e-mail. possibly imagine that. if they had done more with what the president talking directly ballot security, if they had done more than that, what would donald trump's reaction have been in october of 2016? alln all likelihood he would have been condemning the obama administration for trying to rig the election, in his word. i don't think we should take these tweets from the last word
on the president in whether he truly believes russia was involved in the 2016 election because it is totally easy to imagine him going back and, again, raising questions. zble >> he has already done so. >> that we don't know who is responsible. >> he's exactly right. he admitted in january, it's russia. then he went back into the language of fake news and it's a hoax. i totally agree with ron. this may not be the last word at all from the president on this. chris, brianna, these two examples we were talking about this morning, health care and russia. the president calling it a hoax. democratic hoax and fake news and now admitting, indeed, obama knew about this. last week, you had sean spicer calling it a rumor that the president, behind closed doors, called the health care bill mean and said he wouldn't address rumors when there was actually a news report that was proved totally accurate. who proved it totally accurate? donald trump, who used the word
"mean" to describe health care. what we're hearing from the administration when they try to push back on these news reports are not what at the end of the day they come out with. >> "washington post," unnamed former obama official. >> anonymous source. >> now they're leaning on that. a desperate search in columbia. 31 people are missing that have tourist boat capsized and sank in this reservoir. six people at least have died. one report telling cnn there were no lifevests on board. what caused the deadly accident, unclear at this time. two big questions on the last day of its term. one concerns the trump travel ban. two circuit courts have blocked it. if they take the appeal -- they haven't decided yet -- the justices could allow the government to enforce the ban until it hears the case. the other is justice anthony
kennedy is going to announce his retirement. he has been a key swing vote on the court for a long time. his retirement would allow president trump to appoint a more solidly conservative justice. a frightening fall and an amazing catch here caught on video this weekend at six flags. six flags theme park in upstate new york. that was a teenage girl there. this was captured on a cell phone. she was dangling from that gondola ride and some key park staff quickly gathered underneath her, managing to break her fall after she plunged those 25 feet. the 14-year-old was taken to the hospital and treated just for minor injury. >> she was okay. one of the guys who tried to help catch her, though, hurt his back. >> you can imagine, sure. >> why did it happen? we'll have to wait and hopefully get some info on that. senate gop health care bill. what can they do about it and how are they going to deal with this reality that the
disapproval, you know. at least a couple of these guys, when you're on the conservative side, may well wind up voting for the bill. the proposed rollback of state and medicaid expansion. 32, 31 states have adopted that. what would it mean if it's gone? joining us now, democratic senator sherrod brown of ohio. he held a rally sunday against the health care bill. it was sunday, right, senator? >> yesterday, yes. >> wanted to make sure i got that right. >> yep. >> how do you see the stakes of this bill and potential vote that could be upcoming? >> what was interesting in the rally was a police chief, coroner and someone who has been clean for a number of months and gone through treatment, all pretty much said the same thing, that the most important tool to combat the opioid epidemic in my state is medicaid. a young woman named brittany said except for her self
motivation, other than that, and her strong desire to get clean, medicaid was, by far, the most important tool. in ohio, 200,000 people right now are getting medicaid -- are getting opioid treatment, medication assistance, counseling, the entire regiment of treatment because of insurance from the affordable care act. this repeal bill in the senate will begin to rip that away over time pretty quickly, in most cases. in addition it's another $800 billion cut to medicaid nationally. which there will be a report on npr this afternoon about steubenville, ohio, which has been hit hard by steel loss jobs and coal lost jobs and it would be devastating to the economy because of what it would do to that hospital in that county of less than 100,000 people. so, it's a jobs issue. it's clearly most importantly an opioid issue. most of these people, as you know, chris, that are getting
coverage from expanded medicaid, are working. they're just in low-income jobs with no insurance. >> the need is great. there's no question about that. deal with some of the republican pushback on these points. one, straight politics. they campaigned on repealing. that's the promise. that's what people wanted, they say. that's why they have to do it. that there's a lot of waste. that they're not cutting anything completely. the health and human services secretary says no one is going to lose care. premiums are going to come down overall for people. there might be less money in the system but there's still going to be plenty there if states are smarter about how they use it. >> well, the secretary of health and human services came in front of our committee and said those same things. the same former congressman that bought and sold health care stocks while working on legislation on those issues. he's the same congressman, more importantly, who wants to raise the medicare eligibility age to 67. he has never been on the side of
working families that care about health insurance. he's wrong there. he wasn't really telling the truth, period. >> what about the spiking premiums that you have, the two high deductibles in places, the insurers dropping out all under the aca and the need to fix those that is driving the republican change? >> well, look, chris, you know this. look what happened at the beginning of the year when president trump did everything he could to discourage new people from signing up for medicaid. these new people overwhelmingly would be the youngest, healthiest people. those are the ones you want in the insurance pool. they stabilize prices and, in some cases, help to bring prices down. their health care costs are not very much. he has continued to dilly dally every month to go ahead with the subsidies. when anthem pulled out of ohio they pretty much said it's because of the uncertainty created by the trump
administration, not the affordable care act. we know what to do to stabilize these insurance pools, bring more, young healthy people in and go after prescription drug prices driving much of the medical inflation. >> you had problems before trump started messaging and sending out signals about the system. >> there were problems before but unlike 50 years ago when congress passed medicare, immediately when they saw minor problems, they began to fix them. this congress, ever since the bill passed, the republican leadership in the house, the majority since 2011, every few weeks they do another repeal obamacare but refuse to work with us to come up with small fixes that would make this work better. nobody claims it's perfect. any time congress, since the new deal nerks time congress has done anything major like medicaid, medicare or social security, we made fixes every couple of three, five years. minor fixes to keep those programs in place.
and that's the opposite of what this crowd, in running the country, has done now. a whole lot of people are paying for. fundamentally, again, they are taking away the most important tool to combat opioid addiction. as you know, chris, it's all about the tax cut. $800 billion tax cut if this bill goes overwhelmingly to the people who wrote the bill on mitch mcconnell's office. insurance companies, medical device companies in the richest families in america, richest 400 families in america under this bill will get a $7 million average tax cut. they're taking insurance from moderate income people who are working full time in so many cases, but simply don't have insurance. it's a bunch of members of congress who get private insurance themselves. get insurance themselves, pay by taxpayers, taking it away from hardworking, low to moderate income americans. they should be ashamed of themselves. >> there certainly seems to be a lot more worthy of debate.
we have a documentary coming out on the opioid addiction, manchester, new hampshire, a place uniquely hit. let me tell you, the need is great. senator, thank you for joining us on "new day" as always. >> thanks so much. >> brianna? how does the senate bill size up to president trump's pledges? we'll debate that next.
i would like to delay the thing. there's no way we should be voting on this next week. >> it's hard for me to see the bill passing this week. >> right now, i am undecided. there are things in this bill which adversary affect my state. >> more and more senate republicans say they want more time to review and debate their party's health care bill but gop leaders are pushing to vote this week. president trump is tweeting. moments ago he said the democrats have become nothing but obstructionists, they have no policies or ideas. all they do is delay and complain. they own obamacare. i want to discuss this now with political commentators rick
santorum and paul begalla. you hear the president there saying democrats are obstructionists. let's look at some of the republicans who are a no on this bill, who are opposed to it at this point. dean heller, rand paul, ted cruz, mike lee and johnson. there are a number of republicans on the fence. do you see a vote happening this week? and if it doesn't, what happens? >> well, i don't know. they'll vote it this week if they have the votes. if not, they'll put it off. >> does it die if they put it off? >> no. i mean, the real deadline is the end of july. when they go into the august break. any good leader in the united states senate, democrat or republican, you're trying to push against a recess to try to get consensus. this is just a process of when people feel that they have to make a deal. and what mitch mcconnell is trying to do is raise the
stakes, saying we've got to get it done by this date so they get people to the table with some kind of agreement. i'm not sure that will happen by july 4th but certainly should happen by the end of july. >> if there isn't a vote this week, that will look bad for mitch mcconnell. >> no one knows the hill better than rick santorum so i'm sure he's right. our viewers have the power. they can call capitol hill, their senators. the switchboard is 202-224-3841. i should have made a sign. people get a vote in this, too. it's not about whether democrats or republicans are doing this. if you are on medicaid and somebody you love is on medicaid this is a heat sinking missile right at medicaid. the kaiser family foundation, only 30% of americans know that this bill kts medicaid. it has an approval rating in
another poll of 74%. they want to sneak the goods through customs with no hearings and they want to lie about it. i saw the tape you played earlier with kellyanne conway, saying there's no medicaid cuts. >> senator, i want you to respond to that but look at the promise and reality of president trump when talking about medicaid. he said there will be no cuts to social security, medicare, medicaid. then you look at this senate bill and it's an expansion that continues for three years but then cuts. he's not making good on a promise. >> here is what i would say about the, quote, cuts to medicaid. it says medicaid expansion will be treated like every other person on medicaid. if you're in expanded medicaid the federal government pay force roughly 100% of your cost.
if you're in regular medicaid it pays, on average, 50%. what the senate bill does say is why are we differentiating between the two? folks on traditional medicaid are the lowest income, the one in need of medical care probably more than the other, and we're paying money for half of their money, as opposed to the state, but the rest we're paying 100% thaemplt saying, no, let's equalize it, put everybody in the same path and let the states decide how to prioritize that money as opposed to the federal government doing so. and it creates waivers, flexibility, this will result in better health care for that population than what we have today. >> paul? >> there are score cankeepers here.
they've manipulated -- cuts medicaid more deeply. they tried to put the time verizon outside of what the congressional budget office can score it. we're brothers of faith in the catholic church. catholic bishops point out that it cuts medicaid. 300 hospitals mostly treat low income patients say this will be a death nail for rural hospitals because it cuts medicaid. republicans are trying to cut medicaid. donald trump campaigned saying he wouldn't cut medicaid. i don't mean to shock people in the morning but he lied. you pointed that out in the campaign. you know he's a liar. >> the actual amount of money being spent on medicaid every year goes up. in washington it's a cut f it doesn't go up as fast as it's
supposed to. the reason is that we put in reforms and waivers for cost cutting to be made efficiently. >> if you're reducing the amount of money to states, if the federal contribution is being reduced. >> great question. something paul begalla worked on, very proud of, i'm sure, which is welfare reform. a lot of folks on the left, it was a drat dramatic cut on wellfare. we froze it. redesigned the system to make it more efficient, spent less money. >> i'm out of time.
paul, quick, final word to you. >> it's one thing to move from welfare to work, medicaid to work. you're going to kick someone out of their nursing home. she can't go get a job. she has alzheimer's. a little girl with asthma needs that medicaid. it's not the same and rick santorum knows it. it's a cut to medicaid. call your senator. the american people can stop it. >> paul begalla, rick santorum, thank you. >> challenges at home and challenges abroad, the battle to liberate mosul from the grip of isis is at a turning point. dramatic new drone footage of iraqi civilians fleeing that city. remember it's not just war time but what will happen in a time of peace. live report from iraq, next.
cnn senior international correspondent nick paton walsh is there, live. nick, what are we going to see here and what is the relevance to the ongoing struggle? >> reporter: chris, the images you're seeing now have been attacken the last few days of the final chapter, really, of ridding isis in iraq. the major battle now is the old city, part of the major northern city of mosul, as isis took nearly three years ago now and is down to street-to-street fighting. dense, narrow alleyways. isis are using human shields, civilians, tens of thousands of them. they often emerge from gaps in the rubble, desperate for food and water. the destruction is remarkable, u.s. official telling me there could be as little as 200 or so isis fighters left in this area. the progress by iraqi special forces, coalition fire power backing them up has been pretty fast in the last couple of days. isis has blown up a key monument for themselves, the mosque
image, devastating destruction here now. the question is, how fast can they bring this nasty, bloody chapter to an end? one official saying to me it's a delicate balance to move slowly enough to preserve human life but quickly enough to get them before they starve. brianna? republicans and democrats are wanting more time on the health care bill. how might the score influence a potential vote or even a compromise? we'll get the bottom line, next.
breaking news. the family of philando castile has settled their case with the city of st. anthony village. the news comes after police released that dash cam individuvideo of the deadly encounter last week. castile's girlfriend was in there, live streaming on facebook. they had a kid in the backseat. all those dramatic moments as the officer did this, fired at him, thinking he was reaching for a gun. judge glenda hatchet and robert bennett tell cnn the nearly $3 million agreement will be paid for through an insurance trust so no taxpayer money will be used in the settlement. the officer, jeronimo was let go
from the force. set to release its score. this could happen as soon as today. what will the impact be? let's get the bottom line from cnn political director david chalian. david, republicans in opposition to this bill there are consequences. we're seeing this from a super pac when it comes to republican senator dean heller of nevada. this is one of the ads -- the ad that they're running against him. let's listen. >> senator heller has made his opposition clear. it's unacceptable to us and millions of americans suffering under obamacare. heller is now standing with pelosi. unacceptable. if you're opposed to this bill, we are opposed to you. >> what is the message there to republicans, david?
>> with friends like these, right? to scare republicans and not getting weak kneed and stay with trump and the republican majority on this. here is the problem, brianna, they're caught in a bind here. they've made a fundamental promise over the last eight years now to their voters that they are going to repeal obamacare. you know, you've been around the country. you've heard it time and again. the problem is what they're replacing it with is not popular. it is actually woefully unpopular in the polls right now. that is the bind that a lot of republicans find nemsz right now. >> there's this call to debate health care, make it more front and center. the president is motivating that dialogue by tweeting about something completely different. the two new trump tweets are these. the reason that president obama did nothing about russia after being notified by the cia of meddling was he expected clinton
would win and didn't want to, quote, rock the boat. he didn't choke. he colluded and obstructed and it did the dems and crooked hillary no good. >> he thinks this is purely a democratic ploy because they're upset that they lost the election. now he has a foil here after all the reporting from "the washington post" last week. he can get back to having a foil in barack obama, saying, you know, he choked, using the words of a senior administration official in that piece, and that he didn't do enough. the problem here, of course, chris, as you and i talked about earlier, is that it is very hard for one person to contain the idea that both this is a hoax and fake news. oh, and barack obama failed at fixing what is apparently now in donald trump's mind a real problem. >> when you look at that first tweet, though, where he's saying
that president obama and others thought hillary clinton would win and that's the reason they didn't intervene. looking back on it now, they he were so convinced she would win they didn't want it to look like they were giving her help she didn't need. >> that's precisely the point that jeh johnson brought up last week. he said to the panel, one cabinet member was saying -- there was obvious concern about feeding into that narrative. brianna, you're absolutely right. i hear from democrats all the time. had they not thought that hillary clinton was definitely going to win the way that most of them did, i don't know that the response would have been identical. >> the shocking part from the president is that he is just learning about this now, that the obama administration knew and did nothing, that defies belief. not only was that in the papers
at crowne plaza we know business travel isn't just business. there's this. 'a bit of this. why not? your hotel should make it easy to do all the things you do. which is what we do. crowne plaza. we're all business, mostly. when heartburn hits fight back fast with new tums chewy bites. fast relief in every bite. crunchy outside. chewy inside. tum tum tum tum new tums chewy bites.
time for the good stuff. imagine finding yourself, you've got your wedding venue closing its doors right before you walk down the aisle. what do you do? this happened to mary lou and richard. when their venue was shut down for fire code violations, people in the community got wind of it and helped out. >> the moment i saw, i was like, i want to help. my heart went out. i've got to help this bride. >> who is that? she owns an event center. they had an open date for the wedding. even better, footing the bill for everything. >> i picture myself on the dance floor. like, thank you. what's a better word than thank you? >> but getting paid for that beautiful reaction, right? and a good feeling knowing you helped someone out.
>> and getting love from us here. you did the right thing, made that couple's memories forever. >> sure did. time for cnn "newsroom" with poppy harlow. >> good morning, you guys. happy monday. have a good day. we've got a lot to get to. good monday morning, everyone. i'm poppy harlow. john berman has the day off. the clock is tick, tick, ticking. legislative time bomb that is essentially ready to implode, depending who you ask this morning. senate leaders are pushing for a vote this week even as president trump backs away from many hard and fast deadlines because five fellow republicans say they can't support this bill in its current form. as early as today the congressional budget office could release an assessment of the bill with the numbers. how much will the
