6:00 am
gunmen's brutaltactics. your "new day" starts right now. this is "new day" with chris cuomo, kate bolduan and michaela pereira. another beautiful sight this morning and a good morning to all of you. welcome to "new day," thursday, october 17th, 6:00 in the east. we are live in washington again for you this morning. and to borrow a phrase from a past crisis, the long national nightmare is over. if only for just a few months. at 12:30 this morning, president obama signed a bill that raised the debt ceiling and re-opened the government. 16 days after the government shut down. chris? >> remember that. two long weeks. hundreds of thousands of government workers and their families forced to make it without pay. all that time, congress fought with itself and with the president to no effect.
6:01 am
getting paid all the while, i might add. but today is a "new day." here's a live look at the capitol. that's where kate is, looking great, re-opening to tourists today. thousands of furloughed workers returning to their jobs. look at this, this may be the first tweet from a previously shuttered government agency. it reads, we're back, earth. #welcomebacknasa. >> it's the little things that matter. this is the moment the senate approved the bill around 8:00 last night and then this is the moment the house approved the same bill, just after 10:00 eastern. it then went to the president as it always does. republicans who waged this war leave it with very little, it appears. obama care, which they hoped to defun or delay portions of it comes out pretty much intact. the agreement lays out that the country will likely face this issue again in just months. we'll be covering the angles
6:02 am
this morning, the government bringing back to life, the political fallout and also how this all is affecting you and your wallet. let's begin this morning with senior white house correspondent jim acosta. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, kate. later this morning, president obama will make another statement on the budget here at the white house after a bruising battle with republicans that he won at nearly the last minute. the president says it's time for both parties to move on. >> the motion is adopted. >> reporter: just as the nation was on the brink, the house of representatives blinked and passed the bipartisan senate compromise to raise the nation's debt ceiling. after a 16-day shutdown, the federal government will come back to life from thousands of employees returning to work, to critical programs, the national parks, panda cam and national zoo. >> we'll begin re-opening the government immediately. >> reporter: president obama who signed the bill into law just after midnight came out early in the evening to say he's ready to
6:03 am
roll up his sleeves to work with both parties. >> i'm willing to work with anybody. i am eager to work with anybody, democrat or republican, house or senate members. on any idea that will grow our economy, create new jobs, strengthen the middle class and get our fiscal house in order. >> john boehner gave the green light for the deal when he dropped gop demands for big changes to obama care in exchange for an end to the standoff. >> we were trying to do our best to stop obama care. we fought the good foyt, we just didn't win. >> reporter: even tea party backed republicans agreed, the strategy failed. >> the folks that said we were going to lose, turned out to be correct. i can't argue with that. >> reporter: one of the architects of the obama care robust plan, texas senator ted cruz vowed to keep fighting. >> i way we are going to stop the sufferings, the harms inflicted on millions of
6:04 am
americans is the american people ridesing up. >> reporter: cruz may get his wish. the deal re-opens the government until mid-january and pushes back another potential default to february. the president told cnn not to worry. >> mr. president, isn't this going to happen all over again in a few months? >> no. >> reporter: now, there is a safety catch built into this legislation that we should mention so we don't get on the verge of a government shutdown come january. by mid-december, according to this bill, budget conferees have to come up with a long-term budget agreement so we don't have another shutdown on january 15th. there was a sweetener in the bill that some conservatives are saying was basically designed for kentucky senator misch mcconnell, a $2 billion project for his state that a lot of people are calling pork but at this point, kate, i think we have to all be grateful that at least the government is re 0ing today and we didn't go into
6:05 am
default. we did kick the can down the road but at least we have a can to kick. kate. >> you said it very well, jim. thanks so much for starting us off. after 16 days in the dark, museums, national parks, memorials will begin re-opening today now that the government shutdown has finally ended. cnn's athena jones is in d.c. with much more on this. how is this going to work today? if many of the folks, many workers received the notice late last night. >> exactly. good morning, kate. this notice went out last night from the office of management and budget saying that all federal agencies willing up and running, normal operations starting today and employees should show up for work. they said in their announcement people should be checking the office of personnel management's website for further updates. a lot of the hundreds of thousands of furloughed workers, weren't supposed to be checking their blackberrys during this furloughed time and did they stay up late last night to see if the government would re-open?
6:06 am
some people might have to commute from far away. we'll see how many of these folks turn up for work today. i will say part of that memo that went out from the office of management budget said that agencies are strongly encouraged to use all available workplace flexibilities to ensure a smaj transition. so some folks might be allowed to stay home because they didn't get the message or they'd be able to work from home, for instance. one more thing on the national parks, yosemite national park out in california began resuming operations last night. kate? chris? >> thank you very much, athena. appreciate it. they're patting themselves on the back down there, they feel like they got something done but damage has been done. thousands of families and there's been a cost to the economy as well. let's bring in christine romans. she's down there in the nation's capitol getting eyes on the situation, our chief business correspondent. let's talk about the cost to the families that didn't get pay for weeks, the overall economy. what did this do to us?
6:07 am
>> the s&p says $24 billion. that's a couple years of full funding for the reduced and free school lanch program. $24 billion is real money. in normal times, you'd be able to make that up. if this were a hurricane, for example, or a natural disaster. it's a natural disaster caused by man, by congress, you'd be able to make up that economic hit. we still have budget battles to go through. that's why markets are still concerned and the economy still could continue to be hit by the budget drama. futures are lower this morning in the stock market. big rally yesterday. big rally yesterday, of course, they're calling it the washington rally, chris. this morning, stock futures are down. world markets are saying, okay, great, now show us that you can fix your underlying budget problems and you're not going to be fighting again. that countdown clock is gone, chris but we might have to dust it off in a few months. >> here's the question. does what happened here become past as prologue and put more pressure on what happens next because of the fear that they
6:08 am
may not get it right again? >> i think it holds back the recovery. it continues to hold back the recovery. and there's no question about that. look, consumer confidence has been hit. business confidence has been hit. confidence in our investors around the world in the u.s. has been hit. you're hearing from countries like china and you're hearing from big mutual fund managers saying, okay, guys, great, you did your job. don't pat yourself on the back. you did yourself and you're keeping your government open but let's make sure you address these problems and get some reasonable -- you know, we need a budget. we haven't had a budget since 2009. we need to show the rest of the world -- washington needs to show the rest of the world that it has its act together. the fed is propping up the economy, $85 billion a month. that will be supportive for the stock market and your investments. only half of americans are invested in stocks. the most important thing are jobs. what are these people in this town where i'm sitting right now doing about jobs and not just about budget fights? >> they compromised families,
6:09 am
s&p, knocked off our growth from 2.6% to 2% because of this. we have to keep reminding them what they did so they do it better the next time. appreciate it, christine romans. >> you're welcome. >> kate, back to you. thanks so much. where do things stand today? let's talk more about it. cnn's chief national correspondent john king is here to break it down for us. we have a deal. congratulations. >> it worked, right? the fabulous day-care center is open for business. >> exactly. i think many people are sitting at home, i'm wondering the same thing, what do american people get out of this deal? >> they get the normal operation of government, even just driving down here today, people are showing up at the smithsonian institution, those were closed, the zoo was closed. people who need to interact with their government may get the phone answered more quickly. they get that and a respite from what they've seen the last few days, the finger points. i do think looking forward, the tone from the president, this
6:10 am
morning will be very, very important. republicans were less than pleased, you might say furious that he decided to speak last night between the senate and the house vote. that was a little bit of in your house. the tone the president sets today will be important to the point chris was just making and christine was just making. can they do it different or will we be here in three months, four months, up against the deadline? >> i think people are wondering does that help or hurt the negotiatings that they're going to inevitably likely face in three or four months? >> you have to remember, as this played out, wee remain in a parallel universe. you have the leadership, the key members of the committee, paul ryan in the house and the senate, they completely disagree. they kicked the can into an even numbered year. you ask democrats to cut medicare in an election year. you're going to ask republicans
6:11 am
to maybe raise revenue in an election year. you'll ask the tea party guys to do this again, cut a deal with president obama, raise the debt ceiling again early in an election year. the leadership as they did in the end here can figure it out. the question is how much of this bubbling over in the tea party will continue? remember, their groups and people not only did they vote no, they're saying fight this. >> we lived through the supercommittee. they had an expedited process to get a grand bargain, long-beter budget deal done. what are the chances in two months members of congress can come together and get a budget blueprint? >> we don't know answer to that. the question is did they learn the lesson? the one word question this morning, leadership, will there be leadership? the president didn't cause this shutdown. a small group of republicans
6:12 am
decided to shut down the government. they decided to threaten the debt ceiling. that's a fact. but the president who this was maybe not a mess of his making should learn the lesson about don't let them go to the deadline. bring them together more often. if they aren't getting progress done, call them to the white house sooner. try to figure out the pressure points and make the deal. everybody has known the math. >> the elements are there. it's the political will. >> you raise eligibility age. what do you do over here on the spending side? how much do you cut out of the pentagon? do you get new revenues out of tax reform? there are bipartisan proposals out there that would get you where you need to get. in an election year, mitch mcconnell helped get this deal, the senate republican leader, to the finish line. he has a tea party challenge. lindsey graham voted yes. he has a tea party challenge. what is the immediate impact out in the states in the election
6:13 am
context and how does that impact the policy negotiations as that clock -- we don't need to put the clock up today, folks, but it does start ticking again today. >> thanks, john, thank you very much. it cannot be forgotten how important it is all in the context of an election year. >> it makes it harder. it makes it harder. >> john king, great to see you. chris? we take a break on "new day." within we come back, we go inside the kenya mall massacre. surveillance cameras capturing the siege. we have brand new footage. obama care pretty much intact and the debt ceiling raised. where does house speaker john boehner now go from here? ♪ load! we keep moving to deliver what you need. and that means growth, lots of cargo going all around the globe. cars and parts, fuel and steel, peas and rice, hey that's nice! ♪ norfolk southern what's your function? ♪

6:17 am
welcome back to "new day." we are following the latest on the government re-opening and of course the extension of the debt ceiling. first let's give you a look at your headlines at this hour. newark's mayor will be the next senator from new jersey. corey booker defeated steve lonegan. booker will serve out the final 15 months of the late frank lautenberg's senate term. the nsa has been rocked by leaks of its surveillance program. now a "washington post" reports that the cia collaborated on drone strikes abroad. this comes as the agency's director and top deputy prepare to stop down. a possible bird strike forcing an alaskan airlines
6:18 am
flight to land in oakland, california. pilots reported a bird may have thrown into one of the engines. that plane carrying 166 passengers and crew landed safely. in the midst of the shuffle of getting the government up and running again was another piece of senate business. caroline kennedy was confirmed as the new u.s. ambassador to japan. she was nominated by president obama back in july. kennedy will be the first woman ever to hold that diplomatic post. dallas mavericks owner mark cuban cleared of insider trading charges. the federal court jury in texas delivering a not guilty verdict in the case involving cuban sale of a stock in a canadian internet search company. he sold his shares and avoided a $750,000 loss. outside court he said government lawyers tried to bully him and he was glad he stood up to them. those are your headlines. shall we talk weather? >> please. >> let's do it and have indra
6:19 am
guide us, be our tour guide. >> every day i can get up early and i can handle it, i know it is a good day. temperatures in the 60s. 63 philly, new york 62. farther north we're seeing 50s. keep in mind this is expected to change as the series of fronts will make their way across the country. the difference today we have a warm front out there. moisture comes out of the south but as soon as the cold front does push through we'll be talking about a lot of cold, dry air. there will be two systems, cold air will be in place throughout the weekend. rain not going to be a big factor. these are dry systems. spreading in from the northeast down to the gulf. the second system way back into the northern plains but making its way at the tail end of it at least through denver today. why does it matter? they're getting flurries out there, not a major system, maybe way up in the mountains,
6:20 am
wyoming, possibly 6 to 8 inches of snow. denver, a couple flurries. mild across the country. you see the temperatures. this is a big story, i suppose. these are yesterday's temperatures. notice the 70s out towards cleveland. today you'll feel the difference. highs in the 50s, 59. that's the first system by the way. still nice along the seaboard. 68 d.c., 69. there's the second threat behind it. i'm not allowed to say cold. everyone says this is warm. a brilliantly warm weekend ahead, everybody. >> temperate. >> we like that. a good word. >> seasonal. >> that's all i've got. >> okay, mr. thesaurus. you remember when terrorists attacked the westgate mall in nairobi, kenya last month. now cnn has obtained access to some of the mall surveillance videos, much of what we are about to show you is graphic. it could be frightening.
6:21 am
so know that and take care if you have kids around. cnn's nama is live in nairobi with the latest. what do we understand about the situation from this tape? >> reporter: we obtained this from our sources. though it is a difficult watch, i think it's a really important one. for the first time it gives us a small window into what really happened on that saturday in september here in nairobi. take a watch, chris. a first look at a nightmare as cnn has obtained surveillance video of the horrifying moments that took at least 67 lives and injured hundreds. watch as unaware shoppers suddenly run for their lives. a wounded man tries crawling to safety but the gunman returns. outside, helicopters circle and
6:22 am
you can hear the gunfire that's coming from al shabaab attackers combing the hallways. civilians run and crawl to wherever they think they can to survive. some hide in the stairwell, others in stores. a body on the mall floor is shot repeatedly. at a mall restaurant, staff and customers cower behind the counter as a plain clothes police officer tries to protect them. security cameras on the roof catch the attackers walking towards the children's cooking competition, opening fire just beyond the view. surveillance video shows the hostage roundup has begun. a mother and two children push an injured child in a shopping cart. a bloodied teenage girl follows, her hands in the air as a gunman points the way. hours later they're released. back inside, the hostage takers are spotted on the phone.
6:23 am
authorities believe they're receiving instructions from outside the mall. one of them appears to be looking for surveillance cameras. and there are even long periods of time where the attackers appear relaxed. at one point, taking turns for prayers. this is just a fraction of the surveillance video recorded as most of it is too horrifying to broadcast. only the first day of a four-day nightmare for kenya. even three weeks on here in nairobi, they're still trying to get bodies out from inside that rubble at westgate. and for 25 families they still don't know what happened to their loved ones, chris and kate. >> thank you. there are new calls for a special prosecutor in the story we've been following to investigate claims of a teen rape in missouri. the shocker will be who is behind the request. the government shutdown is
6:24 am
over but the fighting goes on. what does this mean for house speaker john boehner? much more, ahead. bny mellon wealth management has the vision and experience to look beyond the obvious. we'll uncover opportunities, find hidden risk, and make success a reality. bny mellon wealth management.

6:27 am
welcome back to "new day." it is thursday, october 17th. and breaking news overnight, a crisis averted. just after midnight president obama signed the bill to re-open the government and raise the debt ceiling, raise the debt ceiling until february 7th. the 11th hour bargain ends the 16-day shutdown and avoids a u.s. financial default with potentially global economic consequences. even though federal employees
6:28 am
will have the opportunity to finally return to work today, the deal only funds the government through mid-january. setting the stage for another possible showdown in coming months, something no one wants to see but coulding our future she soon. for many in the gop it has been a bitter pill to swallow. the final bill made no real changes to obama care in the end but instead exposed a risk within the republican party. house speaker john boehner was caught between warring facts, especially in the house and although many of his republican colleagues were coming out in support of him this morning, his future maybe not as clear as some may think. here's cnn joe johns with more. >> reporter: in the end, republicans came away with almost nothing yet behind closed doors, speaker john boehner got a standing ovation from colleagues and spoke to a hometown radio station. >> we fought the good fight. we just didn't win. >> reporter: it was hard to find anyone in the gop ranks with a
6:29 am
harsh word to say about the man who led them to defeat. >> i've been really proud of speaker boehner the last 2 1/2 weeks. i don't think he should be ashamed of anything he has done. >> reporter: public polling shows that boehner and the republican party suffered the most damage but the early line is that this disaster isn't the speaker's fault. >> i don't think we could have a better speaker under more difficult circumstances than we have here. he's not in an inverible position. >> reporter: while no one in power is suggesting boehner's role as speaker is now in jeopardy, the political reality is that it's an enormous loss for him and his party. >> i don't think it's a good thing for the republicans in the house when we basically recede to the democrat senate and to the president who want to spend money and borrow more money with no structural reforms. i don't think you can call that a victory. >> reporter: congressman joe barton voted no but still supports the speaker. >> you never are in as good a
6:30 am
shape as you could have been when you lose as opposed to winning, but you know, i voted for him for speaker back in january. i would vote for him again. >> reporter: when this issue comes up again early next year, it could be tougher sledding for boehner because the conservative republicans who picked this fight are not going away. >> we should be talking about cutting spending before we raise america's debt ceiling. >> reporter: looking ahead, one question will be who's really running the house? whether the speaker can ever assert real control or if factions inside his party can keep calling the shots. joe johns, cnn, washington. >> joe johns, thanks so much for that. i'm back here with cnn's chief national correspondent john king to talk more about this. the focus has been on john boehner throughout this fight. he's been in an unenviable position many would say. the last couple days, a lot of folks are saying he was a dead
6:31 am
man walking. when you hear conservatives coming out yesterday, he seems stronger than before. what's going on? >> he's strong an stronger than people expected coming out of this. is he stronger than before? put a big question mark under that and watch as we go forward into the next couple of months of what will a budget deal look like, what will be the spending cuts be? let's do immigration reform, this one is done. the tea party was just told we're not going to change obama care, now you'll do a path to citizenship. john boehner's job does not get any easier. >> in-fighting is not new. it normally happens behind closed doors in the house republican congress meetings. is this the new strategy or reality for john boehner going forward? let the different factions of his party fight it out in public? >> this is a lesson he says he
6:32 am
learned from the newt gingrich days. he was once in the leadership and then he was kicked out. through his own personal tenacity, he clawed his way back into the leadership and became speaker. don't underestimate john boehner. the praise is because he stood with them for those 16 days. he stayed with them longer than they thought he would. essentially he stayed with them in a strategy that he was on record saying he didn't think was a good strategy. he said beforehand we cannot do this. politically he understood from the beginning it was going to hurt the republican party but he did it anyway out of loyalty to a minority of his group. he comes out of this -- there's another part of this, let's be honest, they don't have anybody who can beat him. >> that's a good point. >> the critics are not in love with his deputies either. he stood with them in this challenge. they'll keep an eye on him. look at what the tea party groups are doing. we said repeatedly, this is not normal. you don't shut down the government in a fight over
6:33 am
policy. we should stop saying that. the new normal is forget the old rules. a lot of the tea party guys don't have experience in government. they don't care about the protocols of washington. >> it is changing, that's absolutely right. it was the overwhelming criticism you heard from democrats day in and day out, john boehner has lost control of his conference. do you think that's the case? >> he has a hard time managing his conference. at times, yes, at times the tail is wagging the dog, if you will. it is the nature of the beast. remember, for people out there who are mad and look at social media, look at commentary around the country at the tea party guys, if you disagree, that's understandable. i always make this point. they won election saying i will go to washington and vote no. i will go to washington and block obama care. i will go to washington and not raise the debt ceiling. a lot of the lawmakers if you
6:34 am
look at their campaigns, this is what they said they were coming to do. we often beat up politicians who don't keep their promises. most of them won. that's again, the dichotomy people forget, mitt romney won more house districts than barack obama. if you look county by county in america, it's way more red than blue. where they live, they think they're on safe ground. part of this is welcome to divided government. this is what the american people have sent to washington and as we learned over the last 16 days plus, it's pretty messy sometimes. >> also, when you talk about what they're hearing back home, when you head in aan election year as we will be shortly when the fight ramps up again, compromise is not a word that many people are hearing that their constituents want back at their home district. >> in those districts you have ted cruz is their hero in the senate. you have 30 to 50 members of the house. they do not want to compromise with this president. they do not want to compromise when it comes to obama care. many will not want to compromise when it comes to a path to citizenship.
6:35 am
the speaker, his challenge now is going into an election year where six weeks ago many people thought the republicans would hold, perhaps build on their majority in the house and have a chance to take the senate. the republicans have taken a beating over this in the last 16 days. the question is, can they recover? that's his job now, john boehner has to go and say we need to recover and rebuild in time for the election year. they're in a dip right now. his challenge is magnified. he comes out of this as the speaker. there's no challenge to him. there's a lot of people watching him. >> while all of this plays out and while the intrigue in washington is interesting, people across the country were being hurt by this. what about s&p say, $24 billion hit to the economy during the shutdown? it's unfortunate that has to happen. >> the president of the united states will say come on down, let's work together. that's a hard one. that's a hard one. >> that doesn't help them. >> it's a necessity of divided government. >> yes, absolutely right. thank you, john. much more on this coming up
6:36 am
next on "new day," though, a bizarre outburst on capitol hill just before the vote to end the budget crisis. we'll tell you what all of that was about. and we have surprising developments in a case of a missouri teen who says she was raped by the star of the football team. details, coming up. ♪ ♪ ♪

welcome back to "new day." there was a strange disturbance in the house moments after congressman passed the deal to re-open the government and extend the debt ceiling. a house stenographer went up to the microphone and just started screaming. what do we know, athena?
6:40 am
>> it was an sunnet etunsettlin. you can see the stenographer walk up to the podium and began talking. she spent about 20 seconds on the floor before she had to be dragged out by the sergeant at arms. she said, according to a gop aide, do not be deceived, god shall not be mocked, a house divided cannot stand. again, she spent about 20 seconds on the floor before they dragged her off. she was holding tight to the podium and took her out into the hallway. we have an audio recording of what she said off the floor. let's listen to that. >> the constitution -- praise be to god, lord jesus christ.
6:41 am
>> mollie. >> you can hear people saying, come on, sweetheart, this is someone well known, well respected and well liked. it really surprised and unsettled folks. chris? >> no question the situation made people upset. a house divided cannot stand, obviously that's abraham lincoln. it seems that this woman may be ill, may be disturbed. >> we know she was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation. and that's where things stand there. of course she was considered one of those people who would be considered essential, there to record what's going on in the house. we of course don't know of the other circumstances and whether or not, not being paid or anything like that could have played a role in all of this. >> important to note. thank you for getting us up to date. thanks. >> let's get to some of today's other top stories. wind shear has believed to have caused a deadly plane crash in southeast asia. all 49 people on board were
6:42 am
killed. officials say the plane was preparing to land in laos. five bodies have been recovered. one american is said to be among the victims. two violent murders in florida have been mistakenly freed. charles walker and joseph jenkins walked out separately. jenkins has 37 years left on his sentence while walker has 3. both men are from orlando. the sheriff there is concerned they may return. attorneys for the man accused of killing 12 people at an aurora, colorado movie theater are trying to have the evidence found on his car and computers thrown out. james holmes' lawyers told the judge police did not have a search warrant when they took items from his car and the warrant for the computers was not correct. the trial is set for february. holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
6:43 am
prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. a u.s. navy crew coming to the rescue of 128 men stuck on a raft in rough water on the mediterranean sea. they were migrants from somalia. they will be turned over to the maltese coast guard. and a kangaroo hops into an airport, this is not a joke. it's actually a true story. see it yourself. the animal shut down part of the airport in melbourne, australia, when it hopped through the busy qantas terminal and into a pharmacy. apparently he suffered some injuries and they are nursing him back to health. airport officials say there are plenty of kangaroos around but finding one inside the airport specifically in the pharmacy, is quite rare. >> i've been there previously. took a flight to vegas. >> i knew this was coming. i sense it. you can feel it stirring. when he gets quiet. >> procedures must be reviewed.
6:44 am

welcome back to "new day." a surprise move by a missouri prosecutor under fire in a controversial alleged teen rape case. the teenage girl says she was assaulted by a prominent high school football star when charges were suddenly dropped. now the accused family is speaking out and the same man who dropped the case, says it's time to take another look. here's cnn's anna cabrera. >> i was more than excited. i felt like i was going to be able to work with someone who was actually excited about this
6:50 am
case and willing to put forth a real effort. >> reporter: alleged sexual assault victim daisy coleman and her mother say it's a small victory to have their case re-open. >> i've asked the court to appoint a special prosecuting attorney to conduct an independent review of the facts and determine whether to refile charges. >> reporter: for the first time, the man at the center of a controversial case is speaking out. prosecutor robert rice under fire after dropping charges in the alleged sexual assault of 14-year-old daisy coleman. while now asking for a separate review of the case, he stands by his action, claiming daisy and her friend paige, another alleged victim, refused to testify. >> i can't go into their minds. i don't know, ma'am. i can tell you this, we were very careful, very deliberate to make sure we recorded that there was no misunderstanding, they understood when they at that time invoked their fifth amendment right that by doing so
6:51 am
was going to force the dismissal of the case. >> reporter: the coleman family believes rice dropped the charges against 17-year-old matthew barnett not due to lack of evidence but because of barnett's deep-rooted ties to the community. >> i think because it was football players from maryville, had lots of power and connection and we didn't matter. >> reporter: matthew is the grandson of long-time republican state representative rex barnett. >> can you understand people's suspicions about that? >> yes. i knew if this thing drug on very long i'd be pulled into, just for political reasons. i made it a point not to talk to the prosecuting attorney, to the sheriff, any of the witnesses. directly or indirectly. and i stuck to that. >> reporter: do you have a relationship with prosecuting attorney robert rice? >> we're acquaintances, not close friends or anything like that. >> reporter: rex barnett retired from politics in 2002.
6:52 am
rice became the prosecuting attorney in 2010. one thing is for certain, outrage is growing. maryville mayor jim fall says he and many others have started to receive threats from supporters of daisy coleman. >> the language, the tone, the vulgarity is unbelievable. >> reporter: he, too, wants action that can bring about a swift resolution. anna cabrera, cnn, maryville, missouri. at least they're taking a second look. >> right. it was curious when the case was dropped. justice always demands attention and clarity. all of these types of reactions are natural when people have doubt about whether or not something was done on both sides. >> sure. >> it's also interesting it was interviews on cnn that actually raised the attention of the prosecutor that maybe the family had a different story to tell than what he understood. just shows how convoluted these situations can become. we'll follow it for sure.

7:00 am
good morning. it's 7:00 in the east. we want to welcome our international viewers to the show as well. we're coming to you live from washington this morning. it was signed by president obama just about 12:30 eastern this morning. thebury partis bipartisan c reimburses states that re-opens national parks with interest and provides back pay for thousands of government workers forced off the job. but you can't compensate them for two weeks of not having paid them for their family. you're looking live at the world war ii memorial. it's one of many national parks and monuments that will re-open this morning, kate. >> much more on that ahead. the deal as chris mentioned is a temporary fix, though. we could be right back where we were in another few months
7:01 am
unfortunately. we are covering every angle of the story for you this morning. starting with senior white house correspondent jim acosta. good morning, jim. >> good morning, kate. we can hear the faint roar of the leaf blowers on the grounds of the white house. president obama is expected to make another statement on the budget later this morning after a bruising battle with republicans that he won at nearly the last minute. the president is expected to urge both parties to move on. >> the motion is adopted. >> reporter: just as the nation was on the brink, the house of representatives blinked. and passed the bipartisan senate compromise to raise the nation's debt ceiling. after a 16-day shutdown, the federal government will come back to life from thousands of employees returning to work, to critical research programs, the national parks, panda cam and the national zoo. >> we'll begin re-opening the government immediately. >> reporter: president obama who signed the bill into law just after midnight came out early in
7:02 am
the evening to say he's ready to roll up his sleeves to work with both parties. >> i'm willing to work with anybody. i am eager to work with anybody, democrat or republican, house or senate members. on any idea that will grow our economy, create new jobs, strengthen the middle class and get our fiscal house in order. >> reporter: house speaker john boehner gave the green light for the deal when he dropped gop demands for big changes to obama care in exchange for an end to the standoff. >> we've been locked in a fight over here, trying to bring government down to size, trying to do our best to stop obama care. we fought the good fight. we just didn't win. >> reporter: even tea party backed republicans agreed, the strategy failed. >> the folks that said we were going to lose, turned out to be correct. i can't argue with that. >> reporter: but in a sign of potentially more battles to come, one of the architects of the obama care robust plan, texas senator ted cruz vowed to keep fighting. >> the way we are going to stop the sufferings, the harms inflicted on millions of americans is the american people
7:03 am
rising up. >> reporter: cruz may get his wish. the deal re-opens the government until mid-january and pushes back another potential default to february. the president told cnn not to worry. >> mr. president, isn't this going to happen all over again in a few months? >> no. >> reporter: now, there is a safety catch built into this legislation, republicans and democrats are supposed to come to an agreement on a larger budget for the years to come. that is designed to avert another shutdown come january. also tucked into the legislation, $2 billion for a dam and lock project, river project in kentucky, the home state of senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. some conservatives are calling that the kentucky kick back. aides to the senator said he had nothing to do with it. kate? >> thanks for starting us off this hour. national parks and memorials will be again open to visitors starting today, now that the
7:04 am
shutdown is finally over. rene marsh is at the world war ii memorial with much more on this. >> reporter: the good news, d.c. is getting back to work. all those federal agencies, they're re-opening, you mentioned the national parks, the museums like the smithsonian here in washington, d.c. and of course the memorial. we're at the world war ii memorial. this has been the symbol of the government shutdown. it's been the point of high drama. if you remember, those barricades were erected around this open air memorial, not allowing people in, even veterans weren't allowed in because of those barricades, of course they broke through the barricades. they couldn't get to the spot where i'm standing at now. i want to show you live, take a look. there are no barriers this morning. we've been walking and watching and seeing that people are making their way through the memorial in a distance there. if you look towards your right you see a worker here who we saw earlier this morning kind of cleaning out the pond here. so things are looking back to
7:05 am
normal. and also what's getting back to normal, the federal workers. they're going to be going back to work this morning. we know that, of course it's going to be a tricky situation in getting the word out, of course that deal happened late last night. and during this furlough, these federal workers, by federal law, they're not supposed to be using the blackberrys or laptops to check the e-mail. getting the message to them, that hey, it's time to get back to work could be tricky but we expect most of the workers will be back on the job at least by monday, if not today. >> real quick, so the workers are heading back to work. what about the furlough days? what did congress decide regarding the lost pay during the shutdown? >> right. that's the big question. will they be repaid for those days that they missed? the good news for those federal workers is yes, they will. congress has agreed to pay them that back pay for the money that was withheld during this government shutdown. kate? >> all right, rene, thanks so
7:06 am
much. when i was coming into the capitol this morning, i overheard one worker say it's great to be back. he's probably summing it up for many other federal employees this morning. joining me right here on capitol hill is one of the lawmakers who voted for the deal. senator angus king. he is an independent senator from maine. senator, great to see you. >> kate, how are you? >> doing very well. late night for you and a busy 24 hours. you voted for this budget deal. did you like it? what do you tell your constituents when you head home. >> i didn't like that we had to do it and i also didn't like that it was so short. it's really three or four months as you already reported. and i just don't like this business of trying to govern from crisis to crisis. i thought this morning it reminds me of the kid -- everybody's feeling good this morning but it's like the kid who beat his head against the tree and somebody said why are you doing that? he said it feels so good when i stop. this has been a brutal couple of weeks and pretty much unnecessary, i think.
7:07 am
>> when you head back to maine, what do you tell voters? what they got? >> what they got was we're returning a little bit to normalcy. i think the hidden benefit in this is the instructions to the two budget committees to come together to try to solve some of the fiscal issues. >> you're on the conference committee? >> i'm one of the conferees from the senate as a member of the senate budget committee. it's not going to be easy. it's not like there are minor differences. the ryan budget in the house and the budget passed by the senate last march are very different. but there are elements in there that i think can really mack a difference. i want to show you something that i think will become very famous. this is a usb drive prepared by a group called fix the debt. in it is all of the options for getting this done. you can click on them and it's an excel spreadsheet. it does all the calculations. you can see what the consequences are. we'll be making some decisions here, some very important decisions and for once, we'll
7:08 am
have the data. i think that's a cool way to be able to proceed. >> when you say it's not going to be easy, that is -- if you watch the budget process over the years, that is such an understatement. you have two months now to try to come together on a long-term budget deal, something that congress has not been able to figure out for years, honestly. >> yes. >> how are you going to do it, when this is at a time when i don't think i've seen congress so divided. >> one of the reasons it's so hard, the core values of the two parties are at play. the republicans want no new revenues whatsoever. the democrats are reluctant about entitlement changes. some mix of that, most people that have looked at this say is going to be necessary. >> i don't want to be cynical. is there any chance it's going to get done? >> yes, i think there is. i think everyone was chiasson by this experience. a lot of talk about who won and who lost. the american people lost. i'm tired of winning and losing
7:09 am
here. it's a sport and it's too serious for that. i think people feel -- i say the people are going to be involved in this conference understand the stakes. and to tell you the truth, there's been so much discussion about these budget issues, the pieces are all there. we could do it in a day if people were willing to put their ideological blinders aside when they walk into the room. >> that's the hardest thing. what do you think folks at home should be prepared for? what could possibly bring two sides -- >> we know how that goes. >> what could possibly bring the two sides together, completely overhauling the tax code, serious changes to medicare? what do folks need to be prepared for when you're heading into these budget negotiations? >> i think what they need to be prepared for are some things everybody is not going to like. >> like what? >> they are likely some entitlement changes, not cuts in benefits but things like, for
7:10 am
example, right now on medicare, the tax stops at about $100,000 a year. in other words, you pay zero after that as incomes go up. that has -- the disparity on that has crept up over the years. i think that will have to be fixed. there may be means testing for wealthier medicare recipients. >> going to be a tough pill to swallow for many americans. you know that. >> absolutely. but we're in the swamp here and we have to start getting the alligators aside. if it were easy it would have been done a long time ago. >> you're absolutely right. how this fight played out, how does that inform or how do that impact how you approach the next fight that you're going to see? you have the budget battle and you have three, four months you'll be facing another government shutdown and debt ceiling fight. >> as i say, i think everybody is chiasson by this experience. nobody wants to go through this again. it's ridiculous. we did it with two hours to
7:11 am
spare. none of us did our book reports before sunday night but this is crazy. there's no excuse for it. it didn't even have to happen in the first place. it could have been resolved some time ago. i think everybody going into this conference understands the stakes. the center piece of the deal, really, is the conference. basically they hit pause, we'll go back to work. we're not going to break the debt ceiling. those states are looming out there in january and i think people understand we shouldn't be putting the country through this. as i say, everybody that's worked on this budget stuff, they know what the elements are. we can do it if it's not, you know, i'm the -- i got all the answers. there are no -- >> my way or the highway, all the other things we see all the time. >> this country was built on compromise. if somebody tells you i'm not going to compromise, what they're telling you is i've got all the answer. i'm 100% right. i never knew anybody that was
7:12 am
100% right. compromise has got to be part of getting this done. >> you have a big job on a daily basis. you found out late yesterday you'll be taking part in this conference committee. your job just got a whole lot harder. >> i was sitting on the floor of the u.s. senate when patty murray said who the conferees were going to be. my first thought, that's pretty cool. my second thought, holy smokes, we have to get this done. >> i don't know if i should say congratulations or i'm sorry. thank you, senator. much more coming to you from washington but let's get the headlines. newark, new jersey mayor corey booker has won the special u.s. senate election. he beat steve lonegan by about 10%. booker will finish the term of the late frank lautenberger. startling news, new information this morning, "the washington post" says the nsa
7:13 am
has been collaborating with the cia in the use of drone strikes to kill terrorists abroad. that information reported to be from documents leaked by former nsa analyst edward snowden. general keith alexander and his civilian deputy are said to be leaving the spy agency in the upcoming months. the missouri prosecutor now under fire in that controversial teen rape case is calling for an independent review. the girl was 14 at the time of the alleged assault. days did i coleman and her mother have since gone public. they say the prosecutor was pressured into dropping charges against a prominent high school football star. robert l. rice says he stands by his decision but welcomes the revi review. >> you'll recall the 9-year-old boy who snuck on a delta flight to las vegas. during a court hearing wednesday the judge ruled that the little boy will stay at a county facility for now. his parents must also attend therapy but will be allowed visitation privileges and phone contact with their young son.
7:14 am
a bit of a surprising find. you're probably wondering what that is. it's an alligator in a hot tub. police near vero beach were serving a drug warrant when they found the animal outside. the owner says i have no idea where it came from. it was there when i moved in. he fed it, he fed it chicken, in fact. we were saying in the make-up room, a great name for a rock band, alligator in a hot tub. right? >> yes. >> welcome to the stage! alligator in a hot tub. >> it was strong, very good. >> there you go. >> time for the weather. indra petersons, member of alligator in the hot tub. tambouri tambourine player. >> we're talking about 60s out there. in the morning, this is a good thing. we'll be talking about 70s if you're in philly, d.c., new york, you'll love the weather for at least another day.
7:15 am
we do have changes, not major but either way there are a couple cold fronts expected to make their way through as we go towards the weekend. for now, we're still dealing with warm air coming out of the south. once you get behind the cold front, we'll get the cold air from canada. not a huge rainmaker. we could see sprinkles, overnight in through tomorrow. you start to see some of the light showers. only about an inch at best. again, very dry, kind of scattered showers. really just across the country today with both of those systems. that was the first one. the second one, coming down from the northern plains, going in through denver with the higher elevations. we could see flurries, wyoming, 6 to 8 inches. in denver itself, first flurries about an inch. the other story will be the temperatures. yesterday cleveland with 70. today you're going down to the 50s. there's two of the cold fronts. once it cools off, it will stay cool. not that bad.
7:16 am
>> on that we take a little break. within we come back on "new day," a cnn worldwide exclusive. disturbing surveillance video from inside that kenyan mall that was under attack. you'll see what was going on as it happened. it is difficult to believe what terrorists were able to do there and what they stopped to do while murdering the innocent. kate? back here in washington, the government is back at work. but could we be back here once again in just a few months? we speak with republican congressman nick mulvaney. my mantra?
7:17 am
trust your instincts to make the call. to treat my low testosterone, my doctor and i went with axiron, the only underarm low t treatment. axiron can restore t levels to normal in about 2 weeks in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18 or men with prostate or breast cancer. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair
7:18 am
or increased acne in women may occur. report these symptoms to your doctor. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. serious side effects could include increased risk of prostate cancer; worsening prostate symptoms; decreased sperm count; ankle, feet or body swelling; enlarged or painful breasts; problems breathing while sleeping; and blood clots in the legs. common side effects include skin redness or irritation where applied, increased red blood cell count, headache, diarrhea, vomiting, and increase in psa. ask your doctor about the only underarm low t treatment, axiron.

7:20 am
business this morning. now that congress has approved and the president signed a compromise deal to end the shutdown and increase the debt ceiling. joining me now to talk more about it is republican congressman mick mulvaney from south carolina. you voted no on this debt ceiling and government shutdown bill last night. john boehner said yesterday we fought the good fight but we just didn't win. was the fight worth it? >> it was. anytime you fight for something you believe in and something you think is important, then the fight will be worth it. we fought, although the message didn't get out as effectively as we wanted it to, we fought for fairness. we wanted our families to be treated the same as large corporations under obama care. in hindsight, yes, if you stand up for what you believe in, i think you'll always end up on the right side of things. >> i heard you say yesterday and you're right, good policy should be good politics. that's absolutely right. people want their congressmen
7:21 am
and women want them to stand up for what they believe and what their voters want them to do in washington. but people have been asking me since yesterday, is it worth the fight to have a policy debate and hold the government hostage in the meantime? people in the country are hurting but why did a country have to hurt over a policy debate? >> ordinarily you don't have to. ordinarily you'd sit down and have these debates on an ongoing basis. you meet every day, every month. that hasn't happened for the last three years. think back since i got to congress three years ago. the only time the president has engaged with republicans in the house at least was during the debt ceiling crisis in july and august of 2011 and now. sometimes this is the only way. in fact, what the founding fathers gave to the legislative branch is the powers of the purse so that we could have this discussion if we needed to. this happened 17 times between 1976 and 1995. it hasn't happened since then. it happened almost every year for 20 years.
7:22 am
this used to be a lot more ordinary course of business. it want a cataclysmic thing. this is how the system is set up. if you're not talking in the ordinary course of business sometimes you have to take extraordinary measures. that's what happened the past couple weeks. >> moving forward there's a huge opportunity and also a big challenge to be faced. we were just talking about senator king. he's one of the conferees trying to hash out a budget deal. what are the chances that you think a long-term budget blueprint will be agreed to in just two months? >> not very much. i don't think the prospects for a grand bargain are that likely. i think it's worth taking the time to try. if the president had a relationship with congress -- a friend of mine was supporting the president on syria, it may have been on your network. he didn't know who the white house liaison is. that's unforgivable not to have that relationship between the branches of government. i don't think we'll be able to build those relationships in the next two months.
7:23 am
>> what's going to happen? >> i have faith in paul ryan. a very, very sharp guy pe recognizes the scope of the problem. if you want to look on the bright side of things, more and more people are starting to recognize the threat to the overall economy, to the threat the debt presents. >> are we going to be right back here in three or four months, with a shutdown threat and debt ceiling threat again? >> i think that's up to the president, i really do. that sounds is like a republican talking point but it's not. that could change the dynamic. ronald reagan was able to engage with democrats when they controlled the legislature. bill clinton was able to engage with republicans when he was president. if this democratic president can engage with republicans in the house, i think there's a chance to make progress. >> there is an opportunity today. we'll hear from the president later this morning, setting the tone really for this difficult challenge ahead of trying to hash out a budget deal, if it's even possible. what do you want to hear from him? >> ways to fix the debt, ways to
7:24 am
fix the deficit that don't focus on new revenues, which is code for new taxes. what has, again, gotten lost, taxes went up on january 1st. we had one of the largest tax increases in history. he has about $600 billion of new taxes during what we call the budget window. he has revenues. the government will take in more money this year than it ever has before in its history. this is -- we've never had as much money as we had this year. we still run a $00 billion defic deficit. >> are conservatives ready to deal, though, to bargain? the question is always, taxes, taxes in spending, revenue, new taxes, no taxes, medicare changes. we know the pieces. >> right. >> is the political will to finally make a deal? >> let me put it to you this way. i don't want to dodge your question. the ryan budget proposed that wealthy receive benefits under social security. you could raise their taxes if you want to and give them the same amount of money or leave the taxes where they are and
7:25 am
give them less money. republicans have put some very, very difficult things on the table already. we talked about raising the social security age. very difficult to have that conversation. we've talked about means testing which is what i described. if you're still making $1 million in retirement, should you get the same medicare benefit as somebody that's at the poverty line? these are difficult things for people to talk about. that's evidence of our willingness to talk. >> willingness to talk is one thing. i think you would agree, to get it done, what is needed is leadership and what people are going to be looking to at uhl you. >> always comes from the president first. >> congressman, thank you so much. >> thank you. one chapter done, the next just beginning for congressman mick mulvaney. great to see you. a cnn worldwide exclusive, truly shocking new video we have showing the terror attack inside that kenya mall. what can we learn from the brevity on display there?

welcome back to "new day." want to take a look at your headlines. we start with a deadly plane crash in southeast asia. 49 people were killed when a plane plunged into a river in southern laos. the plane reportedly hit severe weather before it landed at a popular tourist destination.
7:30 am
foreigners from some ten countries died in that tragedy. one american was believed to be on board. opening statements today of a prominent utah doctor accused of murdering his wife. prosecutors say martin mcneill arranged for his wife to have a face lift and then killed her with a combination of pain killers. she died in 2007. two colorado farmers linked to one of the deadliest listeria outbreaks have cut a deal. details of the agreement not released. they were facing six counts each of introducing adulterated food into interstate commerce. 33 people in 28 states died. facebook is easing up on its rules. now allowing 13 to 17-year-olds to share photos, updates and comments with anyone. before a post would only be seen by their friends.
7:31 am
facebook says these changes is in line with its competitors and gives teens the freedom to decide how to compress themselves. critics concerned it will be more challenging for parents to keep kids safe on social media. talk about a close encounter. mike duran went out on his surfboard loaninging for a great white shark. there you see one. this shark is believed to only be a juvenile, measuring between 4 and 7 feet long. i have questions for him. >> please. >> we'll just leave it at that. interesting video. >> better things to do with your time. we have for you a cnn exclusive. we all remember, it's a horrible memory at that, when terrorists attacked the westgate mall in nairobi, kenya. happened just last month. the only way to understand what happened at that time was stories from the survivors. now cnn has accessed some of the
7:32 am
mall's surveillance videos. what we're about to show you may be frightening, painful and graphic. nima elbagir is with us. we get to see what's going on inside that mall for the first time. right, nima? >> absolutely, chris. it is an excruciating watch but a very important one because this is the first time we get a sense of what was actually going on on that saturday in september here in nairobi. take a look at it, chris. a first look at a nightmare as cnn has obtained surveillance video of the horrifying moments inside the kenya mall massacre that took at least 67 lives and injured hundreds. watch as unaware shoppers suddenly run for their lives. a wounded man tries crawling to safety but the gunman returns.
7:33 am
outside, helicopters circle and you can hear the gunfire that's coming from al shabaab attackers combing the hallways. civilians run and crawl to wherever they think they can to survive. some hide in the stairwell, others in stores. a body on the mall floor is shot repeatedly. at a mall restaurant, staff and customers cower behind the counter as a plain clothes police officer tries to protect them. security cameras on the roof catch the attackers walking towards the children's cooking competition, opening fire just beyond the camera's view. in the supermarket, the massacre continues. surveillance video shows the hostage roundup has begun. a mother and two children push an injured child in a shopping cart. a bloodied teenage girl follows, her hands in the air as a gunman points the way. hours later they're released. back inside, the hostage takers
7:34 am
are spotted on the phone. authorities believe they're receiving instructions from outside the mall. one of them appears to be looking for surveillance cameras. and there are even long periods of time where the attackers appear relaxed. at one point, taking turns for prayers. this is just a fraction of the surveillance video recorded as most of it is too horrifying to broadcast. only the first day of a four-day nightmare for kenya. the agony of those four days, chris, still weighs very heavily here. even three weeks on, 25 people still remain unaccounted for. chris? >> all right, nima, thank you for bringing us this story. very difficult indeed. >> what was so interesting, we talked so much about the agony, the frightening moments, the nightmare, but when you see it, it hits it home all the more. those images really difficult to watch. you feel the terror that they
7:35 am
must have been feeling. you feel just a fraction of it. >> feel for the families of the injured and those who were lost. it makes you appreciate even more what it took to survive and make it through it. it also reminds you about something. we're trying to deal with what kind of people would do this. there is no honor, no fair fight. this is a cowardly act. there is no honor to terrorism. and that video, as difficult as it is, is a reminder, for the reasons we hear, this is why, this is what count of fight is going on. you get to see the actions there. it is not honorable. we take a break on "new day." within we come back we have a story you'll not see anywhere else. a bullied 12-year-old girl takes her own life. we heard stories about this but this time it's different. there are charges this case against children. we talk to the parents of one of the girls accused of driving

7:39 am
welcome back to "new day." as the deal to re-open the government and raise the debt ceiling was about to pass, harry reid called it, quote, a time for reconciliation. is it or is it time to figure out what went wrong, who put us
7:40 am
here and how to make sure this doesn't happen the same way again? let us discuss. we have ben ferguson, a conservative cnn political commentator, host of "the ben ferguson show." and miss anna navarro, cnn commentator, republican strategist. thank you to both of you for being here this morning. >> good morning. >> the question to you both, what are you saying within your party this morning? what is the takeaway from this, anna, what do you think it is? >> i think we have to get past this, learn how to work together. this spectacle we have put on for the american people in the last two or three weeks where there's been internal division and it's been so public has not been helpful. i don't think it's something that americans want to see in their government. it's certainly been painful, i think, for republicans. for me it's been painful to see. we have to get over it, get through it, learn how to work and live with each other and
7:41 am
except diversity and what should be a big republican party. >> it's a big idea, ben but you only had a third of the house republicans vote for this deal. you have the concern about past being prologued as we go into this next set of negotiations. what about this minority that has a lot of sway over the party? where are they in their mind coming out of this situation and into the next? >> well, i think they know that now the american people are not okay with a government shutdown moving forward. and last night was a victory in the sense that, yes, the government is back up and running. but they kicked the can till january and february and the only reason why we picked those dates from democrats, republicans i talked to is many members of congress, including those that were working with the president, did not want to have to come back early from their christmas break. if you think about how dire the situation is, the fact that the date that they were deciding to kick the can to made sure that they guaranteed themselves a
7:42 am
vacation, i think tells you how not serious they are about fixing this problem long term. and i hope that you see the leadership at the white house, president barack obama come immediately to the table with the republicans and other democrats and say we're not going to wait until the last minute. we'll start talking now. we'll have retreats. we'll use camp david, move immediately so we make sure this doesn't happen. i'm worried that this is going to be the same exact conversation in three months. >> then we get into this conversation how we do it. kate just interviewed a congressman. he says i don't think we'll be able to get it done in two months. i don't believe there will be grand compromise. you haven't started the damn thing, you just embarrassed the whole thing and you're saying i don't think we can get this done. you have john boehner, the speaker, saying we fought the good fight. ana, is that the right message? what was good about any of this? >> you know there's nothing like
7:43 am
positivism at 7:40 in the morning, chris. of course there's -- there are things that can happen. i have a high comfort level at the fact that it is patty murray from the senate and paul ryan from the house that are working on this. these are two workhorses, not show horses. you haven't seen paul ryan out there talking about this and hogging up tv. this is a guy who works behind the scenes. he's a wonk, a policy guy, a numbers guy. so i think these two are going to start today. we're going to see them start meeting today, have breakfast today and get this going. will there be a grand bargain as we define it? we don't know. maybe. hopefully. will there be small concessions and some bipartisanship and some compromise? i certainly hope so and expect that that will be the case. and i for one, ben, i'm delighted that it is after the holidays because it may give them a vacation but it will also give us a vacation, including the american people. only thing worse than doing this
7:44 am
in the middle of october would be doing this 12 days before christmas. >> guaranteeing coal in every stocking, ben. paul ryan is going to be a big voice on the committee. voted no on this deal. what do you think has to get done for this to be done the right way? and by right way i mean no tactics like this, in the next set of negotiations, what must be on the table? >> first of all, there has to be a spirit of actually negotiating instead of the president coming out and saying i refuse to negotiate, i will not negotiate, i'm going to get everything i want, you get nothing. that's part of the reason he's never been able to pass the budget. you have to look at the core of what this bigger issue is and why do we keep coming back to this? it's because the american public, we are forced to pay taxes. they have more money coming in now than ever before, yet they are not doing their main job which is to have a budget. if you want to stop the insanity, you've got to come to the table and say, here is a
7:45 am
one-year budget, not a 60-day budget, not a 90-day budget, because the continuing resolution as we've seen over and over again, it is a horrible plan. there's not a ceo in america that could run the company the way the government is being run right now. they've got to be real about that. otherwise we'll be right back here on another morning just like this one, not that long from now, mark my words. >> i love having you both. ben ferguson, ana navarro. >> thank you, chris. >> the republicans have to negotiate, the democrats have to come to the table willing to talk as well. hopefully they'll do better next time. i think they have. thanks for being on "new day" to both of you. >> thank you. a shocking story, a 12-year-old girl takes her own life. two other young girls in middle school facing charges that they drove her to it. we'll talk with the parents of one of those girls, coming up. you listen and then you decide.

welcome back to "new day." 12-year-old rebecca killed herself after more than a year of brutal bullying. now two girls age 12 and 14 have been charged with aggravated stalking, a felony, in connection with her death. we're going to talk to the sheriff about those arrests in just a moment and see where the case is. the parents of the 14-year-old, still in police custody, agreed to go on camera for the first time. here's what they had to say. to the best of your knowledge, is your daughter a bully? do you think she bullied rebe a
7:50 am
rebecca. >> no. >> vivian and jose are the parents of a 14-year-old girl identified by police as a cruel online bully, accused of contributing to 12-year-old contributing to 12-year-old rebecca sedwick's suicide. >> my daughter's not that type of girl to do something like that. >> reporter: police arrested two girls they say are behind the bullying. but vivian and jose say there's no way their teenager relentlessly taunted sedwick with hurtful messages like you should die. and why don't you go kill yourself. repeatedly on social media. sedwick reached her breaking point last month, jumping off this abandoned cement silo. the sheriff said the arrests happened so quickly in part because of this disturbing comment allegedly posted on facebook by jose and vivian's daughter. yes, i know i bullied rebecca and she killed herself but i don't give a blank. how do you explain the facebook message? >> it went out around 1:00.
7:51 am
we there's no computer in her room. the only other thing she could have used was my cell phone. my cell phone is always with me. >> reporter: how careful were you to know where your daughter was? >> i always check her facebook. i know her password, you know. she never once, you know, bullied this girl online. >> reporter: but the bullying may have gone beyond facebook. other social media sites including twitter, instagram, ask fm and kick have all been cited by sedwick's family. you don't know what your daughter's activities were on those sites, if any? >> i never come across those websites that they're saying my daughter was on. the only one that she had was facebook. >> to our knowledge. >> reporter: as the investigation continues, the sheriff says jose and vivian could soon be faced with charges, too. what do you think of that? is that fair? >> i don't think it's fair for
7:52 am
me and my husband to be, you know, punished for something they're saying that my daughter did and my daughter's being punished for something that she didn't do. >> it's also very important to note that both vivian and jose agreed that the girls responsible for this should be punished. the parents of those children should be punished. that brings us to who did this? what to we know? poke county sheriff at the part of this story, good morning sheriff brady judd. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. chris how are you? >> doing well. sheriff, as you hear there, the parents say their daughter did not do this. her account must have been hacked. she didn't send that message. they never heard about any bully ing. how confident are you the two girls who have been charged are the girls at the center of this situation? >> chris, we're absolutely confident. you see that's part of the problem. unfortunately they're just in absolute total denial. this bullying has gone on since
7:53 am
last november. both in person at school and over the cyber world. as you can see, they don't think she did anything wrong. we've got legions of evidence and witnesses. we've got witnesses that said she's had a proclivity for bullying girls all the way back to elementary school. there's a problem. there's a significant problem. and it started at home. >> your confidence is 100%? >> yes, sir. 100%. no doubt at all. we have an incredibly good case. or certainly we wouldn't have brought criminal charges. bullying is not against the law. what is against the law is stalking and aggravated stalking. when you torment a fragile girl until she jumps off the top of a tower and kills herself, as you can see, that's worthy of criminal charges. we're very confident. >> also looking at the second part of that, as horrible as this is for whatever reason it was, someone so young to feel they had to take their own life,
7:54 am
do you know at this stage that this was the precipitating factor? that this wasn't about someone who was in pain for other reasons? that this behavior, this bullying, was the source of the pain? >> yeah. we've made it abundantly clear from the very beginning that this contributed to her jumping off of a tower. >> and charges for juveniles always controversial, always very sensitive. i want to hear why you feel it was demanded in this situation and, and going after the parents. which a lot of people have called for in the past. you're actually trying to do it. please speak to those two decisions. >> well, let me talk to the people across the united states. if your child was bullied, tormented, over and over and over for months, and people said things like you should drink bleach and die, why don't you go kill yourself, nobody likes you, and your child jumped off of a tower, wouldn't you want those
7:55 am
responsible held responsible? and that's exactly what we did. we looked out for this child, her family because they're victims. and we want every child to know and every parent to know that if your child is a victim of a crime, we're going to enforce those laws. we haven't brought charges against the parents at this point because there are no criminal charges we can bring. we're still investigating this case. if we can determine through our investigation that the parents have criminal liability, we'll charge them as well. >> do you believe that that's a change we need to make in this country's laws, that when kids do extreme bullying the parents are held criminally responsible? >> when you have children that you morally have a responsibility to make sure that they're raised right, i can tell you that a child can do an individual act, and you can't keep up with them every second of the day. but this was a case of bullying and stalking that went on for months and months.
7:56 am
there were interventions that were completed by the school system. they worked very hard in this. but yet, guess what happened? the parents were in total denial. the child goes on and on and on and continues the bullying. the baby jumps off the top of the tower. and i was there that morning. i saw that 12-year-old child dead at the base of that tower. if others had the opportunity to see what i saw and see the investigation that my great detectives put together, they would insist on criminal charges as well. >> if we hadn't seen it so many times in the past, it would be almost impossible to believe that this could happen among children. but sadly we know it does. let me ask you about the school, though, quickly, sheriff. you said they did good work here. i'm suspicious of that because of what we've seen in the past. schools that don't seem to do the right thing, don't seem to do enough for various reasons. in this situation do you have confidence this school did what they could for this child? that they did alert these parents who say they never heard from the school? do you have better information?
7:57 am
>> yes. absolutely, chris. here's what occurred. the 14-year-old who is the primary taunter, whose parents you talked to, convinced one of our victim's, rebecca's, friends to turn against her. she actually instigated a physical fight. the school suspended our fighters. which was our victim as well as one of the suspects. later on in another incident they changed their classes around. when this went on, the victim's mother took rebecca out of school for the end of the year. then the school system actually put her in a different school this school year. yet the taunting went on. that's when it moved over to the cyber world. so the bully stayed after her even after the mother and the school system were able to significantly break the physical contact. the school was responsive. and i can tell you why. we had a fragile child.
7:58 am
we had two bullies that stayed after this child and terrorized and tormented her online telling her nobody liked her. she should go kill herself. ultimately, that's what she did. >> sheriff, thank you so much for taking the time. thank you so much for taking the time to do this investigation. there's no question that the only way this will stop in this country, if there's a better coordinated response among law enforcement, parents and schools. so thank you for taking initiative here. we'll follow the investigation. we appreciate you being on "new day," sir. >> thank you, chris. we will stay with this family to help them. bullying needs to stop at home, not with us. but when it rises to the level of crime, if the parents don't take care of it, then we will. >> understood. thank you, sir. let's get back to washington and kate. kate? >> thanks, chris. coming up next on "new day," senator john mccain. he said the government shutdown and the near default is one of the more shameful things that he has seen in his time in washington. he's going to join us at the top

we've got to get out of the habit of governing by crisis. >> happening now. the shutdown is finally over. government employees heading back to work at this very hour. congress finally passed the deal late last night. and the president signed it just hours ago. back to life. national parks reopening. government offices back in business as congressmen catch their flights home. what lessons were learned? will they make the next round of talks better or worse? caught on tape. another brutal bus beating. an innocent teen sucker punched,

8:04 am
the bad news is, did these people not learn their lesson? if in this short kick the can down the road deal, if they don't get it right then, we're going to be right back here. what does that mean for the government, the politicians and most importantly for you? we'll break it all down for you from the white house to wall street. kate? >> and today president obama is expected to address the deal to speak to the country and potentially the next battle ahead. this deal is only a temporary fix, as you now know. we could be right back here where we were facing another shutdown in another few months. we're covering every angle of this story like only cnn can. let's begin with jim acosta live at the white house this morning. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, kate. yes, the country kicked the can down the road. but at least we have a can to kick. let's go through some of the detames in this agreement. as you mentioned the president did sign this into law just shortly after midnight. it keeps the government open until january 15th, extends the nation's debt ceiling until february 7th. to make sure that this doesn't
8:05 am
happen all over again, they did build a safety catch in the legislation that will hopefully avert another government shutdown by the middle of december. republicans and democrats in congress are supposed to come together and forge a new bipartisan agreement for a longer term budget for the country. that will hopefully avoid another government shutdown come january. now, there was one other sweetener in the bill that affects the state of kentucky. home of senate minority leader mitch mcconnell who was instrumental in brokering this agreement. $2 billion was tucked into this legislation going to a dam and river lock project that flows through his home state. aides to the senator said he had nothing to do with it. that this was requested by other senators. conservatives out there are calling this a pork barrel project. you mentioned the president is supposed to speak here at the white house later this morning. that's at 10:35 a.m. he is expected to extend an olive branch to republicans down pennsylvania avenue and talk
8:06 am
about this process to come. kate, the president has talked about this. he was talking about this before this bipartisan agreement came to fruition. he said once the government is reopened, once the debt ceiling is raised, he vowed at that time to start talking about getting to some of the big issues here like curbing entitlement spending, those sorts of things that democrats frankly don't like. the president has pledged that he's going to get his hands dirty and roll up his sleeves and get busy to work with democrats and republicans to make sure that this doesn't happen all over again. that they have a budget both sides can live with. >> that's where many republicans are saying they want to see the president engaging more earlier in the process. all right, jim. thank you so much for starting us off. from the white house, now to the workers. many of the government workers returning to their jobs will be staffing museums, national parks, memorials that are now reopening to the public. cnn's renee marsh is live at the world war ii memorial for more on that. good morning, renee. >> reporter: good morn wk kate.
8:07 am
you know, it is back to work here in washington, d.c. those federal agencies opening the national parks as well as the museums like the smithsonian here in washington, d.c. of course, the memorial. we're at the world war ii memorial. as you know this kind of was the symbol of that government shutdown. it was also the point of high drama when they erected barricades around this open air memorial keeping people, including veterans, away from the spot that i'm standing at right now. what a difference some compromise can make here. take a live look. we at no tididn't see the fount this morning. it's on now. things are starting to look back to normal. you don't see any signs of any barricades at this point because they are all gone. we saw them removed just a short time ago. i wanted to take you to some video that we shot a short time ago at the martin luther king jr. memorial here in washington, d.c. we captured workers from the national park service. they were removing the barricades there. and as we mentioned just a short time ago, the bare kricades hert

the world war ii memorial, they were removed as well. let's talk about those federal employees. because today is back to work. we know that. but the trick is getting the word out to all of these folks. remember, they weren't able to check their cell phones, their laptops because they were on furlough so they weren't checking that information. when they're watching the news this morning, they're getting the word out that they've got to go back to work. if everyone isn't back today, at least at the very least, kate, by monday, they should all be back to work. back to you. >> good news for them. rene, thank you so much from the world war ii memorial for us this morning. let's bring in republican senator from arizona john mccain to talk more about this, about what happened and about the path forward. good morning, senator. >> good morning. >> so you now have some breathing room, a little bit of breathing room before we hit two more deadlines and you need to get a budget deal in some two months. senator an ggus king was on earlier. he said there's a chance the two
8:09 am
sides could come together and reach a long term budget deal. nick mulvaney came on. he said he didn't think there was a chance. what do you think? >> i'm not sure. i think sooner or later we will. but we're not going to go through the shutdown again. people have been too traumatized by it. there's too much damage. we tried this back in 1995. had the same results. we waited a long time before we tried this again. i don't think there's that danger again. that's what most people are worried about. out of this came winners and losers when you look at it. but the real losers were the american people. the people in my state, for example, there's a community outside the grand canyon called tuscian. they're not going to get their back pay. they're not just furloughed. they had no jobs. we had to fly food up there to families of the people who work up in the grand canyon that are not government employees. this was a terrible idea. i told you at the beginning how
8:10 am
it was going to end. we know if they try it again how it's going to end. hopefully we're not going to do this again. at least not in my lifetime. >> how do you avoid it? >> well, you just don't shut the government down. you keep the government open. you keep negotiations ongoing. i think we could reach probably a short-term agreement. what i mean as short term, a smaller agreement than the, quote, grand bargain. there were 14 of us that worked together, dominated by women, i might add. >> good thing. >> of course. and we had come up with an agreement which was basically a better deal frankly for republicans than the one that we had to cut there. because we had no cards left to play. >> what is feasible? when you're looking at the most immediate challenge, which is this group coming together to try to reach a long -- any kind of a budget deal, what is feasible at this point with this congress? are there three things that you think we can pull off? >> i think that we can certainly keep the government open. i think they learned a very -- look at the -- what the american
8:11 am
people's view of us is. you know, i have this line that i use all the time. we're down to blood relatives and paid staffers. well, i got a call from my mother who's 101. >> you even lost your mother? >> i even lost my mother. there's plenty of things we can do. we're not out of options. the question is, will we have the will to reach those options. and, frankly, one of them is the normal thing that we're supposed to do, which we used to do, and that is the house passes a budget, the senate passes a budget, they go to a conference and we came out with a budget. duh. it's not that hard to do. but we have gridlocked. for four years the democrats didn't give us a budget here in the senate. finally we got one. and then some republicans blocked going to the conference. i think we're going to -- hopefully the lesson is stop this foolish, childishness. the president won. i give him credit. he won. but he should have negotiated more earlier and we could have
8:12 am
prevented some of this pain. >> when you talk to conservative republicans, especially in the house, they think, you know, they need to stand for good policy is good politics. they're standing on principle. even though they lost the fight, they think they fought the good fight as john boehner said. how do you get republicans on the far right on board for anything. even keeping the government open short term? >> look, i think the american people made a judgment about this fight. and they may be proud of the fight they fought. maybe they'll regret it. i don't know, maybe in hindsight, i'm not sure that you could declare victory. the point is, the american people disapproved strongly. they disapprove of republicans the most. but also democrats and the president. everybody suffered in this thing. one thing that politicians want, it's approval. the american people spoke loud and clear. they disapprove of what we're doing. so we've got to stop this childishness. >> is there something that needs to happen within the party to --
8:13 am
>> there's going to be a fight in our party. >> -- to break the cycle? >> there's a fight in our party. and that has to be waged. and it's been there before. it's also about internationalists versus isolationists. there's debates that are going to go on in our party. it's probably healthy for us to have that debate. but at the end of the day we've got to come together. some place along the line we forgot ronald reagan's 11th commandment. you know what it was? don't speak ill of your fellow republicans. we've done way too much of that. >> you don't think there really is a chance to pull off a long term budget blueprint in two months. >> if we could just get a budget for the year i'd be overjoyed. so i think we can do that. i think there's going to be a new attitude around here recognizing that the american people are sick and tired of what we did. and i'm glad the government workers are back at work. i'm glad our government is functioning again. but the damage we've done to people who don't work for the government has been immense.
8:14 am
estimates of tens of billions of dollars in damage. that's not why we're sent here. >> when you look at the next fight that really picks up really today, it's going to take you in through next year. which means an election year. >> kate, i predicted how this thing would end. because i saw it in 1995. i predicted we will not be shutting down the government any time soon. we may still have some gridlock. maybe we'll have continuing resolutions that -- we're not going to shut down the government again. i guarantee it. >> do your colleagues in the house agree with you? >> i think the majority of the house by their vote last night, they could have kept -- they didn't have to vote to open up the government again last night. they could have kept it shut. i don't think they'll do this again. at least -- and i certainly pray they won't. >> the big criticism i heard from nick mulvaney, we heard it over and over again, republicans are ready to deal but the president needs to engage. do you think the president will -- do you have any confidence the president will
8:15 am
engage more? >> he will engage now. whether we'll reach an agreement or not, i don't know. i know the president will engage. he has got to understand that magna minty in victory is an important quality to have. he won. now you sit down with your adversaries and get things worked out. if you don't, obviously you're not going to be a successful president. >> your prediction was right this time around. that republicans were going to lose on this one. let's hope your next prediction is right as well. the government will not be shut down in three or four months. >> it will not be shut down again, i am sure. if i'm wrong, then -- >> then we'll roll this tape again. much more coming to you from washington. coming up next on "new day" the shutdown is finally over, but will americans be paying the price going forward? we're going to be breaking down the shutdown fallout and what it means for you. plus, two teenagers have now been charged in a brutal school bus beating in pennsylvania.
8:16 am
all caught on tape. we're talking to the mother of the victim in this case. ple phy. a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions
8:17 am
or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion.

8:19 am
welcome back to "new day." we are following all of the latest on the government deal, but we want to give you a look at your headlines as you head out the door. newark mayor corey booker celebrating his victory in a special senate election in new jersey. booker defeated republican live steve lonagan. the democrat was elected to complete the 15 mornths on the term of the late senator frank lautenberg. he'll have to run again in the november 2014 election. the nsa has been rocked by leaks about its surveillance program. now a "washington post" report says the agency has collaborated
8:20 am
with the cia on drone strikes against terrorists abroad. the documents were provided by nsa leaker edward snowden. this comes as the agency's director and a top deputy prepare to step down. more progress being reported in syria as an international team works to destroy the country's chemical weapons stockpile. the organization for the prohibition of chemical webs says its inspectors have now visited 11 sites and destroyed critical equipment at six of them. the team is set to complete its site visits by the end of the month and begin eliminating chemical agents in november. the obama administration projected nearly half a million people would sign up for the new health insurance markets in the first month alone. according to an internal memo obtained by the associated press. but that was before those persistent computer glitches frustrated consumers. if those problems continue, the goal described as modest in the memo may fall short. excitement and a pretty big surprise for residents in a georgia neighborhood. those are bears. a family of them. mom and her cubs running down a street in the atlanta suburbs.
8:21 am
look at them all. it brought residents out wanting to see the family for themselves. not something they say they've ever seen before. fortunately the bears did leave the area without incident and wandered back off into the woods. not before going up the driveway. that would be quite a shock in a suburb. let's talk to indra now, keeping an eye on the forecast. >> how about we talk about the weekend. >> how about we talk about today. perspective, i'm learning, it's getting colder on the weekend. still mild. keep in mind, it is october. talking about 70s today in philly, d.c., new york. it is beautiful outside. even starting off the morning in the low 60s. right now philly about 63. new york city 63. right now the difference, why it feels so nice out there, actually right behind the warm front. all this warm air is coming in out of the south. as soon as these cold fronts swing through we're going to be talking about cold air coming in from canada. you can actually see them.
8:22 am
they're very moisture starved. you're not getting a lot of rain out of them. a hint we are going to see drizzle maybe in the northeast overnight tonight into tomorrow. if you're down in the gulf, you'll start to see some of those light showers. again, an inch at most. very scattered in nature on top of this. then the second cold front coming in behind that, that today is in the northern plains. kind of that tail end going right through colorado. they're actually going to get their first flurries of the season in denver right on time. that's kind of the big story there. generally mild across the entire country. the big thing is that cold air that will start filling in. yesterday's temperatures, cleveland was 70 yesterday. today dropping down to the 50s. another cold front behind that. once it cools off, even more cool air comes in through the weekend. 70 today. gorgeous, though. >> it's the fall. it's what we expect. >> almost feels like spring at 70. >> it's good we have shades of purple here. i have a little bit going on. >> why? >> it's a signal caller this month. october is national bullying awareness month.
8:23 am
unfortunately today we have another brutal school bus beating to tell you about. two pennsylvania teens charged with assault after this disturbing video went viral. now police want to know why the bus driver allegedly did nothing. why he refused to let the victim off the bus, even. why the incident was never reported. we're going to speak with the mother of the victim in just a moment. first, cnn's pamela brown is going to give us the take on what this story is. pamela, thanks for doing this. >> no problem. here we go again, chris and michaela, with another bus beating story. in this case had the students involved in the attack not filmed the incident and posted it on facebook it may have never come to light. police say they weren't notified about the incident until three days after the attack and it was by the parents who saw the video on facebook, not the bus driver. as of yesterday two students allegedly involved in the attack have been charged and the bus driver could be charged as well. >> reporter: it starts with these two students being relentlessly taunted onboard a
8:24 am
van ride home from a pennsylvania school last wednesday. things quickly escalate. watch as one of the agitators suddenly punches a 17-year-old student in the face. the result, a bloody nose and three chipped teeth. the victim's friend claims he was also punched. watch as the injured 17-year-old pleads with the driver to let him off the five-person van. >> let me off the bus. >> reporter: but the 34-year-old driver seemingly didn't intervene, call for help or pull over during the minute long video posted to facebook. >> i can't understand how he could sit there and see this happen and not put a stop to it. >> reporter: police apparently weren't notified about the incident until they were tipped off about the video going viral over the weekend. >> i have a problem with a grown adult not reporting it. he has a responsibility to inform his superiors and the police of a criminal act. >> reporter: pennsylvania state law requires bus drivers to pull over and call 911 for help or
8:25 am
report the incident to authorities in an expeditious time frame. on tuesday the district attorney charged two of the 16-year-old aggressors with aggravated assault, simple assault, terroristic threats and related crimes. they will not be charged as adults. this is just the latest school bus beating to go viral this year. remember this vicious attack in tampa, florida, where three teenage students beat this helpless 13-year-old? in that case, the bus driver came under fire when he called for help rather than intervene. a choice he had under school policy. and we reached out to the school district and they told us that they're reviewing the actions of staff members aware of the incident to determine if district procedures were followed in this case. chris? >> all right, pamela. i want to bring the mother of the boy in that terrible video. jackie fonner. her son, dylan, is the one that in the brutal beating.
8:26 am
your son, dylan, home now, obviously shaken. i know you didn't want to leave him, but this is important. and i appreciate you speaking up. >> thank you. >> how is he doing? >> he is -- physically, he's okay. it's more mental. he doesn't understand why it happened. and he's also very embarrassed of all the publicity. >> he's a vulnerable kid, too, right? >> yeah. he just wants it to go away. >> right. >> and i was like, it's not going to go away. this happens all the time and we need to do something about it. >> now, this was going on with him at school, and he just wasn't saying anything, right? >> yes. >> this is bullying. >> yes. >> now, what do you know about what he was living with at school? >> just being tormented and picked on. all the time. he didn't think it was going to end up with getting hit. he just thought that they were, you know, trying to be bullies, basically. he didn't realize it was going to end up with him with a bloody
8:27 am
nose. >> did the school know? did he tell anybody? did anybody say anything to you? >> no. >> you think they should know? >> yes. i think every school should be aware of what is going on with their students. >> so there's one part of it, right? we have to figure out what they knew and when. this has gone beyond that in a couple of ways i want to talk to you about. two of the kids have been charged. >> yes. >> is that important to you? >> yes. >> why? >> because they need to realize they're not going to get away with it. >> the idea that kids will be kids, this happens, they're just kids, though, you can't punish them like adults, fair? >> yes. i understand that. i do. kids will be kids. teenage boys fight. i understand that. i mean, but they sucker punched my son. like, he didn't even realize it was coming. but my biggest issue is with the bus driver. >> you don't see this as isolated, i'm a dope, you're a dope, then we hit each other. this was a pattern of behavior
8:28 am
of more than one kid coming at your kid. >> yes. >> and now that you know about it, what was it doing to dylan? he is in a special needs school. he has some challenges of his own. >> yes. >> what has this done to him? >> he doesn't want to go back to school. he told me he wants to finish cyber school. and this is his senior year. so i've got to sit down and seriously talk to him and see what he wants to do. >> all right. it gets to the big question of how we protect kids. how do we get the message? the driver. we dealt with this other story. the driver said stop it, stop it. people felt he didn't do enough. this driver -- >> did nothing. >> did nothing. does that make sense to you? is there a rule that i don't know about where he is never allowed to do anything under the policy? >> not that i know of. >> he is not allowed to let him off the bus, though, right? >> no. he is not allowed to let him off the bus. >> he doesn't deal with the situation. >> he doesn't even stop the bus. >> he doesn't fell the school
8:29 am
and he doesn't tell police. >> no. >> what do you think of that? >> i'm horrified. he was the adult in the situation. i just can't believe that he did absolutely nothing. he did not even hand my son a cotton ball or a tissue to clean his nose off. my son had to use his flannel t-shirt to clean his face off. and he did nothing. i mean, everybody nowadays has a cell phone. so i'm pretty sure, you know, he had a cell phone. and he didn't even call 911. and i am being told that that is required. >> what do you think should happen to him? >> i don't know the legal system. but at the very least, i want him fired. because i'd had a situation with busing before with my other daughter. and i went to the administrative
8:30 am
building, and i told them what happened. and all they did was change his bus route. >> you think there's not enough accountability? >> right. >> what has the school told you they're going to do about this situation, or now that it's a criminal matter is it out of their hands? >> basically out of their hands. i have not heard from the school district since saturday. >> to the family of the boys who did this, what do you say to their parents? >> i don't -- i don't blame them. i mean, i really don't. you try to raise your children with morals and values. but it's very hard in today's world with all the pressures of teenagers and stuff like that. because, i mean, i know i try raising dylan in a certain way. certain things he just doesn't listen to me. that's how teenagers are nowadays. so i don't blame the parents. i just hope they realize their children can't get away with this. >> well, we want everybody to know that bullying is a bigger
8:31 am
problem. >> yes. >> we know that's why you're coming out. >> yes. >> you got your fingernails in purple which is the a wareness color for this month. >> oh, really? >> see that? it's all coming together for a good cause. >> i did not know that. thank you. >> send your best to our son. let us know if we can help get him back to school. obviously that's the goal. thank you for doing this. >> thank you very much. >> appreciate it. you know this story. you've heard others like them. what do you think? how do we deal with bullying. you can tweet us. use the#newday. fallout from the shutdown that lasted 16 days long. what is it going to mean to you? is it going to hit your wallet? is it going to keep doing that? we'll take a look. and we'll get reaction on the government deal, new government deal from our very own piers morgan. we forced him out of bed far too early for his own good. we'll caffeinate his tea and talk to him about his new book. to guard their manhood with new depend shields and guards. the discreet protection that's just for guys. now, it's your turn. get my training tips at

8:35 am
welcome back to "new day," everyone. it is thursday, october 17th. hope you're having a good morning so far. it was a close call but the deal is done. president obama signing on that proverbial dotted line just after midnight. weeks of bitter partisan rancor giving way to an 11th hour agreement. it reopens the government after a 16-day shutdown and extends the debt ceiling to avert a potential u.s. default. federal workers told to report for duty this morning but another showdown could be on the horizon. the deal only funds the government into january and the deal only extends the debt cushion to february 7th. with only a few months to reach a longer term solution could the fallout from the shutdown impact what happens next?
8:36 am
basically, what does this all mean now? let's bring in cnn senior political analyst and editorial director of the national journal ron brownstein and chief business correspondent christine romans. politics and business. let's talk about both of them and figure out where we go from here. christine, what kind of confidence, what does this mean for the economy that this is not a grand bargain. they just got a short term deal, many calling it a delay. >> it's important to kick the can but it would be nice to have a budget deal. we haven't had a budget since 2009. we're fighting over a debt ceiling because they haven't been able to get their act together and do their job, run the pursestrings of congress. it takes away uncertainty. takes away a risk. it also probably means the fed keeps pumping money into the system. that's something wall street likes. the fed can't pull back and congress still could be having trouble in january and february. it reduces the risk but doesn't fix anything. >> talking about investments which means your 401(k), so let's talk about the politics. three different lawmakers on
8:37 am
this morning, ron. all of them had a different assessment of the probability of actually getting a big budget deal done. john mccain just this hour said something interesting. he said more than once that he does not think there will be another government shutdown. >> i think he's right on that. i think the use of this tool and the threat of default has been delegitimized which was the white house's highest goal. republicans really got nothing out of this except lower approval ratings. look, a big deal, a grand bargain, faces the same hurdle it's always faced. for president obama the price of restraints on entitlements is more revenue through intrenching tax breaks. there's one change in the dynamic. democrats might have an incentive to except some entitlement cuts as a way of loosening those across the board spending reductions in discretionary programs known as the sequester. you could imagine a mid-sized deal with the brand bargain still elusive. >> that should be good news to everyone watching this. what do you see a deal looking like? >> if you could loosen the grip of the sequester and realize in washington you can't shut down
8:38 am
spending too much in the very near term but you have to address your longer term debt and deficits, if they can get that balance right it would be very good for job creation. it would be very good for the markets. it would be very good for the economy. congress has proven they can't get that fine balancing act. that's a problem here. it's lacking. >> this vote shows a pathway to agreements on some other issues like the debt. >> how? >> there are 87 house republicans who voted for this. the exact same number that voted for the violence against women act. this was, again, one of these votes that majority of republicans voted and my colleague crunched some of the numbers this morning. of the 50 republicans in districts where obama ran best, 34 of them voted for the deal. the 50 republicans in the districts where he ran worst, 40 voted against the deal. you could imagine a kind of coalition of the willing on issues like a debt deal, potentially immigration. but, again, it requires john boehner to be willing to pass a bill that violates the hastert rule that a majority of republicans oppose. the vin diagrams don't overlap. on these big issues there are not solutions that a majority of
8:39 am
house republicans would support that would also pass the senate and get a signature from the president. the key i think on all these questions is how many times can boehner go to the well and pass a bill that a majority of republicans oppose. >> that is a very good question. you're in town not only to cover this mess, but also you're talking to many business leaders. what has their reaction been yesterday? >> i was at the fortune most powerful women conference. talking to the most powerful, successful businesswomen in the world. they basically say none of these people would be able to work in their companies. they can't get anything done. think longer term. ma make investments in the near term for the long term. they're frustrated. they're as frustrated as everyone else who's watching. >> it's fascinating. often these business leaders tend to be more republican. >> absolutely. chamber of commerce has poored tens of millions of dollars into electing this congress. has expressed enormous frustration over their behavior. it does appear there's a possibility of more of a
8:40 am
fissure. more business leaders talk about supporting more -- not necessarily moderate, but -- accept the reality we are a divided country. one branch of congress is simply not going to be able to impose its will on a senate and presidency of the other party. >> in my career i have not heard so many people ask the question is the gop still the party of business? and it is. it is. they want low regulation, low taxes, all these things that are the platform. but you've never heard that question asked before. >> you now have a big populous electoral based that's much less business friendly, more confrontational, making life difficult for those guys writing the checks. >> at least for today the government is open and we've averted another crisis. let's talk tomorrow. >> congratulations, congress. you did your job. >> for one day. >> i do not think they'll do this again. >> i'm going to keep the tape as i told john mccain. coming up next on "new day" we're talking with our very own piers morgan about the new government deal. he was up until, like, 2:00 in the morning and he's up again now. my goodness. it was only a temporary fix as
8:41 am
we know. what does piers think about the upcoming showdown we could be looking at again. of course, we've got to talk to him about his new book.

welcome back to "new day." time for the five things you need to know for your new day. president obama speaking this morning about the deal he signed to reopen the government and extend the debt ceiling. furloughed workers back on the job today. the prosecutor dropped sexual assault charges against a missouri teen now calling for an independent review of the case. the alleged victim says she was raped by a prominent high school football star at just 14 years of age. opening statements this morning in the trial of a utah doctor accused of murdering his wife. prosecutors say martin mcneil gave his wife a fatal dose of drugs to continue with an affair. california will take part in

"shooting straight: guns, guys law and george clooney." you have characteristically, one, stepped up and come here this morning after a late night. >> leaving this building at 1:30 a.m. dedication. >> more reason for your celebration. i'm at the front of the parade.
8:46 am
i ask you this. you have been aggressive in dealing with why this should have never happened. >> yeah. >> as they pat themselves on the back this morning and say, see, we did it, what message should loom large? >> get back to damn work. do your jobs. the idea that millions of americans, not just the furloughed americans, because they're likely to get their money back, what about the millions of americans, the bar workers who work near the statue of liberty who lost money for two weeks that they will never get back. what about the pain to all those families? i think it's been a complete outrage. i'm not sure that washington realizes how the rest of the world looks at this. in the old days, it didn't matter. america was the great superpower. there was no rival. so a few little squabbles in washington, shutdowns and so on, it didn't matter. now it's a very different global plane. you you've got china, you've got brazil, india, other great emerging powers. they look at this and sense opportunity. they sense blood. this is not a good time for the american politicians to be playing around with the economy. >> the fact is, so we've, you know, avoided this catastrophe

now. but we've really only just delayed it until january. >> we all know what's happened. exactly the same debate's coming down. in the end quite a few of the more experienced politicians in d.c. have said to me like john mccain and others, the way we're doing business is not the way we used to do business. it used to be far more bipartisan. far more meet for dinner, have a drink, try and get stuff done. bill clinton told me in an interview a couple weeks ago what he used to do was throw everybody out of the room. get newt gingrich and say, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang. get stuff done. what i'm not seeing at the moment is that kind of relationship between president obama, speaker boehner and the others. look at senator cruz who this is not an accident. this guy planned it. he's a very smart guy. allender sh wits came on my show said and he was one of the most brilliant students he had at harvard. he has a game plan. his game plan i suspect is to run the republican party. they're going to have a real battle on his hands. we come to january, to february,
8:48 am
to the new row of the shutdown and debt ceiling. you watch senator cruz. he's going to stir this up again and again and again to see how far he can get. >> kate, you're down there in d.c. you heard the speaker say that we did fight the, quote, good fight. right? >> well, and they say, you know, that good policy is good politics. they're standing on principle. that's what they truly believe. and they are answering -- a lot of these guys ran on this. that's the one thing we don't talk about very often. this isn't a surprise. a lot of people who are standing firm, this is what they ran on. this is what voters put them into office for. i wonder, piers, you've covered this on the show day in and day out. have you gotten a sense that anyone's really changing positions? everyone likes to think that we have lessons learned here. i'm not sure that's true. >> i don't think there's been a single lesson learned by anybody. there never is. this is the 17th government shutdown. there'll be another 18th, perhaps, in january. apart from my personal joy, the panda cam is back up and running.
8:49 am
which i think we're all excited about. we can all look at that cute little panda again. h is a serious business. when you muck around with the american economy, they estimate now that $24 billion has already been lost in the last two weeks. this is a ridiculous time. >> the british partmeliament or u.s. congress? >> we don't have shutdowns. as you know, we get into these big houses of parliament and they scream at each other until they get stuff done. it can take days. >> she said the u.s. parliament. that is how they're acting down there. >> i think personally we should bring back the king and queen. it's all been downhill since the 18th century. >> so many more things to discuss including that last comment with piers morgan. we want to get to the book. "shooting straight: guns, guys, god and georgicale cloonny." more after the break with piers. [ female announcer ] you get sick, you can't breathe through your nose...

8:54 am
i've been at cnn. maybe because it's such a tumultuous period for news. i came on a week before gabby giffords was shot in the head. the guns debate is the main narrative of the diaries. also all the arab spring. bin laden's death. gadhafi's death. japanese earthquake. financial crises. terrible shooting out rages and the roar at sandy hook. it's been a very tumultuous period, i think, for american life and society with all these things going on. i thought what a good way to do it but to do it in a way that other people can read it and place themselves back where they were when these things happen. the main thing is the guns debate. you know, we've discussed this before on this show. i'll keep discussing it. i had three families at the party last night. which i wanted to have. one, the parker family from sandy hook. sandy phillips from aurora. a couple called pam and kenny
8:55 am
ross from scotland. they all lost their daughters. my little girl is nearly 2 now. i looked at them. these are the people that lost their daughters in the bloom of their life. the answer to these outrages cannot be nothing. you cannot be a great power, great country like america, and simply say, we're going to keep having 100,000 americans hit by gunfire a year. we're going to have 18,000 americans who kill themselves with guns a year. and 12,000 americans murdered with guns a year. you can't just keep going like that. >> interesting that in looking at this book, i realize sort of you became this advocate for gun control. you also have found yourself in the seat as you just mentioned a breaking news guy. you're not -- news is not new to you. but the idea of being the face of breaking news is very much. was that a thing you were comfortable with? it's what we do. >> well, it was a strange -- i think it was a strange thing for the american viewers to come to terms with. i'm used to judging piano playing pigs on "america's got talent." >> which is not that different. >> or celebrity apprentices for donald trump. i worked in the newspaper
8:56 am
industry for over 20 years. i actually ran one of the biggest selling daily newspapers for ten yooears. i was running that paper for 9/11, princess diana's death, iraq war, so on. i had a lot of news experience. no one in america knew that. i think going back on to television and doing it in that way, it's a different skill. >> different medium. >> it's what chris has done a long time. i was thrust right into the maelstrom of it. after about two weeks of doing nice interviews with oprah and george clooney -- >> she said it was one of the toughest interviews. >> she did. it was terrific to me. after that certainly it was the arab spring. live every night. it was enthralling. cnn is just an amazing global brand. we all know that. it airs in 200 places around the world. the influence that you can have from that platform is really second to none. so it's been quite a ride. >> to the pressing george clooney question. >> yes? >> you got to read the book. >> i have to read the book. the tease. >> piers morgan, thank you for coming on. "shooting straight: guns, gays, god and george clooney."
