tv ABC News Good Morning America ABC August 2, 2010 6:00am-8:00am PST
good morning, america. i'm robin roberts. >> and i'm george stephanopoulos. it's monday, august 2nd. and this morning the final blow. crews could plug the broken well with mud and cement as early as tonight killing it for good, but questions still out there. how clean is the gulf now? how much damage did that dispersant do? massive manhunt. three convicted murderers make a break from prison. one caught in a shoot-out. two on the run. police desperately search out west. new details from chelsea clinton's wedding from the two gowns to the first dance with dad. we reveal some secrets of the ceremony. and she's out. lindsay lohan is released from prison overnight after serving just two weeks of her 90-day sentence.
so what happens to lindsay now? we hope everyone had a great weekend and you had a long one. >> it was a great weekend. lots of pool and beach time and a perfect weekend for a wedding. picture-perfect wedding up in rhinebeck. there's a proud and somewhat teary president clinton walking chelsea down the aisle. we're happy for them and a lot more on the ceremony ahead. one thing not on their minds this weekend, and that was the midterm elections. you can bet it's on president obama's mind. at stake control of the house. right now 88 seats are in play. most of those are held by democrats. president obama has promised to do what he can to help his party even if it means staying away. >> might be the best for some of those members. >> it would be. but can democrats keep control of the congress? we'll talk to the last
republican who won the house for his party, that man right there, former house speaker newt gingrich. >> that, of course, was 1994. he had that contract with america. we'll talk with him in a little bit. also the time of year for serious shark scares. we got them this weekend off the east coast spotted in the water, great white sharks. this sand shark alarmed hundreds of the jersey beach after it came ashore. we'll have more on that. but we're going to begin with what could be the end of this months long crisis in the gulf. bp says it could start plugging the leak in the well as early as today. jeffrey kofman is still in buras, louisiana, and has the latest for us. good morning, jeffrey. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is the week to watch. after so 5 days, we may be able to stand here in the coming days and report that the well has finally been killed. that capped well 5,000 feet below the rig site should soon be permanently plugged. the process will start as early
as tonight. the so-called static kill will slowly pump heavy mud into the capped well gradually pushing down the oil and suffocating the upward pressure. and then cement will get pumped in, and if it works, the cement will harden and plug the well for good. the same process could be repeated from below with the relief well a few days later. on the noaa ship "bigelow" they're using sound waves to monitor activity around the well. that slash, methane gas, which is all with should be seeing here. should we be happy to see this? >> the situation hasn't changed. >> reporter: as the oil has disappeared from the surface, there is increasing concern about the use of more than a million gallons of chemical dispersant that has been dumped into water. representative edward markey slammed the operation saying "bp often carpet-bombed the ocean with these chemicals, and the coast guard allowed them to do it." the epa responded calling dispersants an spenlessential tool in the cleanup effort.
bp defended its actions. >> what we did was felt to be the appropriate amount. >> reporter: bp's doug suttles says that he's so confident that the dispersants are not harmful, that he would have no hesitation feeding fish from the gulf to his local family. small comfort for some of the fishermen here very confused by the rapid pace of change and the rapid reopening of the fisheries. and even they wonder whether it's healthy. suttles and the government do have science on their side. there's been thousands of tests on products from the areas, and not one came back with any oil. or toxins. >> uncertainty is there. all right, jeffrey. thank you so much. >> okay, robin, thanks. now to politics. with congress heading home from summer break, hot voters in the 2010 campaign kicked off in a big way. the president, house speaker nancy pelosi, two republicans all took the stage for a ferocious midterm battle that
could reshape the administration. jon karl is covering it all from washington. >> reporter: good morning. it may be the beginning of august, but the fall campaign has begun, as the white house and congressional leaders are geared up for a battle over the control of congress. setting the tone for the fall campaign, sarah palin on fox news sunday blaming the president for the economic mess, even what happened before he was president. >> president obama is trying to deceive the public in pretending that he was not a part of congress that has made some decisions in the past that got us to where we are today. >> reporter: and questioning the president's manhood on immigration as she praised arizona's governor. >> jan brewer has the cohones that our president does not have to look out for all americans, not just arizonans. >> reporter: once again jotting notes on her hand. >> can i just ask you, what do you have written on your hand? >> $3.10 million, so i didn't say 3.7 and then get beaned by
the liberals saying i didn't know what i was talking about. >> reporter: from the president -- an unapoll jetting defense of his record. >> when i look about at what was accomplished in the last months, the country sinking into a great depression, stabilizing the financial market, saving the u.s. auto industry, oh, and by the way, the health care. >> reporter: and from speaker pelosi, a promise to take the battle right to republicans. >> this isn't about interparty bickering. this is about a major philosophical difference as to whose side you are. >> reporter: the biggest problem for democrats this fall is the still sluggish economy. >> i think we're in a pause of a recovery, a modest recovery. but a pause in the modest recovery feels like a quasirecession. >> reporter: and as if that wasn't enough, democrats facing increasing anger in washington and embarrassing ethics allegations against top democrats charlie rangel and max
maxine waters. today he travels to atlanta to give a speech on iraq highlighting a bit of good news. the withdrawal plan for iraq that he promised during his campaign is for the most part, george, on track. that's a promise kept and so far -- a promise made and so far a promise kept. >> for more on this, let me bring in former house speaker and fox news contributor newt gingrich and also author of "the new york times" best-seller "to save america: stopping obama's secular social machine." thank you for joining us, mr. speaker. speaker pelosi told christiane amanpour yesterday that she's not at all nervous about the midterms. should she be? >> well, i think that her style may be to not be nervous, but with 9.5% unemployment, with the majority of americans wanting to repeal obama's health care plan, with the majority of americans favoring arizona over the obama administration on immigration, with the majority of americans opposing a mosque at ground zero, with the majority of
americans feeling that the stimulus failed and that the democratic party is increasingly the party of job killers, i think that's what's going to be the key this fall. the american people -- i mean speaker pelosi was right when she said this will be an election about big choices. the problem is i think that a san francisco liberal doesn't represent the majority of americans when they make that big choice. >> you listed a lot of poll numbers there, but i wonder what makes you nervous because some other polls show some warning signs at least for the republican party. going back to 1994 when you led the republicans to victory, the favorability of the republican party was 63%. it's only 37% now. and our own polling shows that voters are preferring democratic ideas generically to republican ideas on a lot of big issues like the economy. doesn't it suggests that the democrats apds effort to turn this into a choice between the democrats and republicans, not a referendum on president obama, and might succeed in holding down losses?
>> well, i think they should try to turn it into a choice. the danger is, it depends on what the choice is. if the choice is do you want taxes to go up next year, i think you'll find they lose the debate. if the choice is 9.5% unemployment is a sign democrats have been job killers. remember, pelosi and reid have been in charge of the congress since january '07, so they're defending a four-year record in which the economy collapsed. all of it under their watch. the deficits have gone up under their watch. you have to ask people about that $3.8 trillion, to quote the number on governor palin's hand. do they want that kind of deficit increased? the answer is no. so i think that i'll be happy for the democrats to make this a choice election. i don't think they can do that. i think in the end they have to attack the republicans relentlessly, and, frankly, in 2006 republican senators found out that that technique did not work. republicans lost six out of six close elections. just as senator reid has to go
home and explain why with 14.5% unemployment, the highest in the country, nevada should re-elect him. >> so you think democrats will lose the house? >> i think the odds are very high they'll lose the house. i think they're going to lose an amazing number of governorships, with people like john kasich meg whitman, and scott walker. i think they are very possibly going to be either a slight majority or lose the majority of the senate, depending on a handful of races in places like california. >> let's talk about one of the issues you raised, tax cuts. of course, a big battle looming over whether or not to renew some of the tax cuts first passed -- first proposed by president bush. yesterday, alan greenspan says all of them should be allowed to expire. as you know, the president wants the tax cuts for the wealthiest americans to expire as well. are you willing -- i know you want to extend all the tax cuts, but in order to do something about the debt and deficits, are
you willing to tie the extension of the tax cuts to some kind of specific long-term commitment to reduce the debt and reduce the deficit? >> okay. as you know, george, for four years i helped balance the federal budget, and we paid off $405 billion in federal debt while cutting taxes. it was done by controlling spending. i don't think this president will control spending. i don't think the democrats in the hos anill ng. so they want the right to thgst rd i history, more than any teenager in america and then turn ad and tell the rest of us we have to pay for their credit card. i think to raise taxes on people who create jobs in the middle of a 9.5% unemployment rate is, frankly, crazy. it's going to increase the number of unemployed americans because the people the president is talking about, his wealthiest americans, are the people who create jobs. they're the small business owners, and they're not going to hire anybody when their taxes go up. >> so you're willing to cut spending but you're not willing
to have some kind of a deal where you can tie it to the extension of the tax cuts? >> no. >> let me ask you one final question, because we're just about out of time. i know you've spoken about the possibility of running for president in 2012. you made similar sounds in 2006 and 2007 and then decided not to run. why should we take you seriously this time? >> you don't need to. we'll find out next february or march. i'll meet with my family, and i'll make a decision, but i do think this is a very different environment. and i think the level of radicalism that president obama represents offers a very different range of choices for the american people in 2012. >> okay, mr. speaker, thank you very much. you and your wife also have a new dvd out called "nine days to change the world." you can fhat ebs as well. thanks very much. >> thanks. >> juju chang has the news. good morning, george and we have new infoon three murderers escaped fro
zon. two are on the run at this hour. the third has been captured 600 miles away in colorado. clayton sandell is there with more on who is helping the men. good morning, clayton. >> reporter: good morning, juju. one of those three men is now in lockup at this colorado dale. police are still looking for tracy province and john mccluskey. they're also looking for the fiance of one of them. police say with her help two convicted murderers are on the loose. this real-life prison break began when mccluskey, province, and a third convict named daniel renwick cut through the fence of a medium security prison at kingman. next they kidnapped two big rig drivers at gunpoint demanding a ride to flagstaff. >> it is thought that they are still in the region in arizona. >> reporter: renwick split from the others and made it to colorado. he got into a shoot-out with cops who rammed his car and made the arrest. mccluskey, province and welsh were last spotted in phoenix withdrawing money from atms. >> hopefully, they'll surrender
and their family will talk to them and give them that good advice. ultimately, we don't want anybody to get hurt. >> reporter: arizona officials are blaming the security breakdown on the private utah company that operates the state prison. a door the inmates passed through was supposed to trigger an alarm but failed. another alarm did go off when the inmates cut the fence but the guards apparently didn't notice. >> my concern is the staff at this prison may have been lax in doing their job. and that probably created the opportunity so that they could escape. >> reporter: arizona officials will meet with that private company this week, to try and find out how this could have happened. state officials are being asked why convicted murderers are serving time in a medium security prison. they say it's because of time served and up until this point, juju, good behavior. >> clayton sandell, thanks for that latest update from colorado. in other news, more than 1,200 people have now died after
some of the worst flooding in pakistan's history. medical teams are trying to head off a cholera outbreak while helicopters and boats race to rescue 27,000 people still stranded. 2 million have been forced from their homes. well, a large cargo plane has crashed in alaska killing three people and sparking a forest fire. the plane belonging to a freight company crashed into a mountain in denali national park. it's unclear what caused the crash. and finally, lindsay lohan was released from jail early this morning. but she's been sent directly to rehab. lohan served a 14-day sentence for violating a probation on a drunk driving charge. her rehab stint is expected to last two months. that's the news at 7:15. george, robin? >> she received two big bags of mail. and she was really moved by that. a lot of people reaching out. hopefully this 90-day stint coming up will do the trick. time now for the weather. good morning, monday morning, to sam champion.
>> good morning, robin, george, juju. the headline today is again heat just like yesterday, 16 record high temperatures. today there are 15 states under heat advisories. and this is big heat. the numbers themselves at 100, 102 itself plus. heat advisories will make it feel like 105 to 115. by the way we're looking at record highs in dallas, memphis, tallahassee will pick up one, jackson as well. jackson at 103 today. tallahassee, 101. this is big, big, big heat and strong storms from rapid to des moines and minneapolis today.
>> all of america's weather in the next half hour, robin? >> all right, sam, thank you. we have new details and pictures this morning of the social event of the season. chelsea clinton's wedding. despite rampant speculation there were no fireworks and fewer celebrities than expected at saturday's ceremony. but by all accounts, and you can see the pictures, it was beautiful. and a very private affair just like the bride wanted. linsey davis is in rhinebeck, new york, with all the details. good morning, linsey.
>> reporter: good morning, robin. people are finally starting to dish the details this about top secret event. this morning, "the washington post" said the couple's first dance was choreographed to the song "at last." and the details just keep on coming. these are the kinds of pictures typically found in a book that begins with "once upon a time" and ends with "happily ever after." from the floral gazebo to the harp in the corner, chelsea and marc had the classic storybook wedding. ♪ 'cause i love you ♪ >> reporter: the frank sinatra song that she danced to with her dad says it all. her dad was close to tears and biting his lip as he walked his only daughter down the aisle. her mom beamed in her oscar de la renta full length fuchsia gown. for such a big wedding, very few details leaked ahead of time thanks, in part, to the couple's wedding planner bryan rafanelli who told "the new york times" sunday that he required
confidentiality with all of his vendors, saying this is how i run my business, protecting the privacy of my clients. the tight-lipped guests are finally opening up like the bride's uncle, roger clinton. >> beautiful woman and her husband is one of a kind. >> there were 14 bridesmaids and these were these 2 adorable kids that carried rings. it was an interfaith ceremony. so there was both a rabbi and a minister. >> reporter: there were several toasts, but chelsea's hubby stole the show. >> he talked about how blessed he was to have met her and how wonderful she was and how she had changed his life. >> reporter: the guests received these gift brags photographed by tmz filled with wine, cookies, pretzels, paetsch peaches, and a note from the bride and groom. it wasn't just the guests who got the goodies. neighbors received a bottle of wine for their troubles, hand delivered by rafanelli, 17 bottles in all. finally astor courts estates which was taken off the market in preparation for the big day,
it's back up for sale. realtors are hoping the recent attention will attract a buyer to scoop up the $12 million historical site. then take a look at these exclusive pictures from inside grasmere. the barn where the sunday brunch took place and the menu that you see posted in the center of your screen. as far as the honeymoon goes, chelsea supposedly didn't have anything to do with that. marc surprised her with the destination last night. robin and george, speculation about that. >> no, no speculation about that. come on home, linsey. thank you. >> we hope they can keep that private. coming up, we have kyron horman's parents. a very emotional interview with them. new details coming up on that case. ♪ oh, do it ♪ ♪ oh, do it ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ express yourself ♪ [ female announcer ] coffee is like life. it's better when you add your flavor. now try new honey vanilla creme. coffee-mate.

what would you do if you were walking down the shore in seaside park new jersey and you saw this, a five-foot land shark? it scared a lot of swimmers this weekend before he turned around or she and headed into the water. but it's something very serious this summer on the east coast. great white sharks have also been seen across the east coast. it's closed down one beach off of cape cod. we're going to talk about it this morning, what you should watch out for and why they are coming back. >> when that music is playing like that. if you hear music like that, definitely run. >> run. hopefully, everyone had a good weekend. i'm robin roberts. also this morning, can you control your dreams? a lot of people are talking about this. it's the provocative concept behind the hit movie "inception." the number one movie in the country for the third week in a row. but it's not just the plot line.
we're going to show you how dream nearly works in real life. >> it's called lucid dreaming. now we go from the jersey shore to the jailhouse. my specialty this morning. there she is, snooki getting arrested from "jersey shore." she got a little wild. also in seaside park this weekend, we're going to get to that in a little bit, as well. >> shocking that snooki was snuckered. who would have thought? but first we have new details in the 2-month-old kemp for kyron horman. andrea canning sat down with his parents who told her in ann emotional interview that they are convinced kyron's stepmom is at the center of his disappearance and andrea is back with more on this. >> good morning. they also believe that teri horman had help and that kyron is alive and stashed somewhere. they are concerned there are several new leads that police are actively pursuing but again, the family believes terri horman holds the key to this mystery. sunday kyron's photo was noticeably removed from his stepmother's
support page on facebook. in its place a smiling face of terry horman itself. beside that these words, there is not one piece of physical evidence that proved that terri is involved with kyron disappearance, only rumors innuendo and speculation. in the first sit-down interviews in weeks, kyron's biological parents, kaine and desiree said they believe she's responsible. you believe without a doubt that terri has something to do with this? >> yes. >> reporter: if terri did this, what could her motivation be? >> i have tried to put my head inside hers, and i can't. >> it's difficult in a situation too because you have someone so close to you basically betray you. you try to put a logical sense or even a thought process behind it and the next event comes up and it completely just blows it away. >> reporter: court documents say terri horman allegedly tried to hire a landscaper to kill her husband, kyron's father. and she's accused of sending sexual photographs
of herself to his former hi school classmate just days after the boy's disappearance. police say she is not a suspect but was the last person to see kyron. his parents say she's failed two polygraph tests. and has been uncooperative. you believe he may be stashed somewhere. is that a mother's intuition or is that based on information that you have? >> no, i don't have any information to tell me that. i just feel a certain way and i have instincts. i think he's being stashed or he would be here. >> reporter: do you believe that she has help from someone? >> i as a logical person think that. >> reporter: in fact, just last week, one of terri's closest friends, ded spicher, was called to testify before the grand jury. they believe she is aiding teri. >> i think all we want for her to do is cooperate with law enforcement. she just needs to bring it forward. >> reporter: what do you miss the most about seeing him? >> he's a very affectionate kid. he has been since he was a baby. just the random hugs.
and the -- the sounds and -- >> yeah. >> i always -- he has the short air. i always run my fingers through his hair. just that every day -- just that everyday stuff. >> he helps me shave my head. and helps me rub my head for the three or four days day while it's still short. going out and feeding the cat together. our morning walks down to the bus. every day i miss those. i miss him. >> reporter: still, they believe he's alive and dream of the day he returns home to their arms. >> he's going to get the biggest group hug he's ever had. >> you have to grab every moment you can. that's what life's about. it's about the little moments. everything added up. that's what life is. and that's what you hold on to and cherish every day. >> a good reminder to parents.
and terri horman has never publicly denied or admitted to anything in this case. her attorney, however, calls it a witch hunt. as for those new leads, kyron's parent s parents talks to police and were asked them not to elaborate. they're begging the public to come forward to tell them anything to crack the case. they want people to get in the middle and not be afraid or worried about saying the wrong thing. if you know something. >> right, right, become involved. because they need some information here. absolutely. all right. andrea, thank you very much. it's now 7:35, time again for the weather and sam. >> hey good morning again, robin. we thought we'd start talking about the recent state of the climate report. 300 scientists from 48 countries looked at all the data to come up and say this is the warmest decade on record. we're living in it right now so we thought we'd look at the things that -- ten climate indicators kind of led them to this. sea surface is on the rise. sea temperatures or land surface term on the rise.
sea temperatures on the rise. sea levels on the rise. things that are going down that shouldn't. those are decreasing the ten indicators. information that philadelphia, baltimore, washington, d.c., places like las vegas, also the warmest july ever on record. new york city comes in as second. here's a quick look at the big board. west coast is looking good except coastal fog. very hot in the deep south. these areas in the deep south are likely to see heat index levels from 110 and could be above. with the heat and humidity combined it's a dangerous situation. arkansas all the way south into l.a. a little part of texas, as >> all that weather was brought to you by dairy queen. the warmest decade on record,
george. >> warmest, no kidding. okay, sam, thanks very much. we're going to turn to shark scares on the east coast this weekend. on the jersey shore, a scene straight out of "jaws." this land shark scared swimmers out on the beach as well. there have been great white shark found off the coast of cape cod. they've been hunting seals there which has closed at least one beach and others are under swimming advisories. jeremy hubbard is in chatham, massachusetts, with the latest this morning. hey, jeremy. >> reporter: george, over the last seven days there have been seven or eight sharks spotted. a marine biologist and his team were out on the water trying to tag the sharks trying to find out how many are showing up. the sharks they spotted are monsters, as big as 18 feet long, weighing nearly 3,000 pounds. their dark ominous shadows lurking just offshire. >> i'm kind of freaked out. >> i don't want to get eaten. >> reporter: one beach is closed indefinitely to swimmers. >> if you see one in the water,
just get away from it. report it and move on. >> reporter: the team of scientists investigating the sharks here tracked them first from an airplane. the pilot radioed to a waiting boat where a skilled harpoonist speared one in the dorsal fin attaching a satellite tag. >> i'll be able to tell you exactly what they did. how long did they stay in the massachusetts area. we'll get a real glimpse into what these sharks are doing. >> reporter: sharks of all kinds have become a common sight along the northeast coast like this smaller one conduct on home video friday when it got a bit too close to the jersey shore. scary, but harmless. as for the great whites there have been reported sightings in water just six feet deep and just a few yards away from the beach. why so close? a buffet awaits on shore. gray seal favorite meal of the great white are multiplying off cape cod. that's why the sharks are showing up. still authorities are taken aback by the numbers they're seeing. >> it's good old-fashioned
common sense. big sharks in the water, big seals in the water, maybe you don't want to go in the water. >> now, sarah shourd should start getting data from those tags about six months from now. it will give them more information on the migratory pattern of the sharks. as for the sighting of that in jersey, that's the third sighting. >> note to self, sharks and seals, stay out of the water. thanks very much. when we come back controlling your dreams, it's the plot of the hit movie "inception." could it be real? "inception." could it be real? hey guys, i got some more savings for ya, and this one i'm taking to

psychologists have long understood that interpreting your dreams can often unlock the unconscious thoughts. there's a whole body of science that helps tap into the power of dreams. how? i went to a dream research irto find out. >> subconscious security. >> reporter: in the world of "inception" a master thief is able to enter people's dreams steal their secrets and plant an idea in their head that they tlink is their own. >> you're talking about dreams. >> definitely possible to control your own dreams. >> everyone's had a dream where tear in a dream and they woke up and they tried to fix things that went on. >> reporter: what the audience is buzzing about is what psychologists prescribe asser that. it's called lucid thinking. >> you can tell yourself at bedtime you that want to dream on a particular topic. that you want to be lucid in core dream. >> reporter: a dream researcher at harvard who studies different

earlier tonight, sometimes, that's a mistake. >> that's right, it might be a by-product of life's struggles. there may be four medical reasons that you're exhausted that has nothing to do with what's going on in your life. the first is anemia. a lot of folks have heard it. you don't have enough red blood cells. when you inhale air, you breathe oxygen. those bubbles of oxygen, they attach to the red blood cells in the lung. when you don't have enough red blood cells, you're not able to carry it to the body in that in addition, you can get dizzy when you stand. you can actually have symptoms related to colds. especially with people who have colds. for women who are menstruating, many of you are anemic. the last thing, look under your eyes. the doctor will do this pull down your lower eyelid pull down this tissue thankfully
you're not anemic. you see the beautiful veins. the tongue itself is a red color. compare yourself to men in your life, they're probably not anemic then you get a rough gauge. >> if you find out that you are? >> you need a blood test to confirm it. in the meantime get iron in your diet. a couple tips broccoli and meat lean meat have iron in them. what i love is iron skillets. >> just cooking in a skillet will make a difference. >> here's a catch. men don't need iron. only women need to cook in the iron skillet. if you're anemic this is the way to get iron that doesn't constipulate pate you. >> and another thing could be causing exhaustion? >> you need about 320 milligrams
of magnesium a day. >> where do you get? >> pumpkin seeds, spinach. two-thirds of you are not getting enough magnesium in your diet. it's important because the oxygen i showed you earlier, in order to use the oxygen effectively, you have to have magnesium in your blood. if you don't have it you'll feel exhausted. >> thyroid problems can cause exhaustion. >> thyroid, easily diagnosed, 17% of people who have thyroid deese have a diagnosis. the rest of you are probably out there lost. a lot of us have a problem. don't know we have a problem. easy to treat. lots of medications. the ones with medicines are the ones we treat the best.
you have weight gain associated with it, skin changes. >> those are all fairly generic changes. hard to pinpoint on a thyroid? >> and you say, i was watching george stephanopoulos on "good morning america," i noticed i'd have all of those symptoms check it out. >> and then the all encompassing chronic fatigue syndrome -- >> it's a syndrome that physicians have been telling us for years we don't believe it's true. only diagnosed in 20% of the people who have chronic fatigue syndrome. ironically, you can treat that short circuiting by doing a couple things yourself. make sure you don't have anemia. i love green tea because it's got polyphenyls in it.
and ribose write that down. it's a quick way of making energy in the body. it's one of the things i think is the easiest solution for people with chronic fatigue syndrome. >> you're covering taboos on your show? >> a lot of folks don't realize, these medical taboos are clues. if your hair is falling out you might have anemia or fatigue disorders. >> one thing we mentioned, going? pregnancy.reiscovering t the new pregnancy app for the iphones. you take just once a month. it's simponi™ and taken with methotrexate it helps relieve the pain, stiffness, and swelling of ra with one dose a month. visit 4simponi.com to see if you qualify for a full year of cost support. simponi™ can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious and
