7:05 am
escape route. the search continues. no significant leads in six days, david. >> thinking about that community, trouble sleeping there every single night this continues. we'll turn to the extreme weather. they say the worst fire conditions ever and in the middle of the country this morning, potentially life-threatening flooding so right over to ginger zee tracking it all. unfortunately, the same part of the country all over again. >> those explosive developments of the storms overnight frequent lightning and, yes, the flash flooding right now in central illinois and indiana. the flash flood watches stretch from indiana back to kansas, even parts of south dakota up to 7 inches of rain already. overnight up to 5 inches of blinding rain across iowa. severe storms with incredible structure. winds gusting up to 80 miles per hour. in denver -- >> came out of nowhere. a lot of hail, a lot of rain. >> reporter: 2 inches of rain falling in just an hour. flash floods stranding drivers leaving their cars behind. >> it's done.

7:07 am
that includes portland, oregon, spokane will get to 103. could be the hottest temperature they've seen in years then watching severe weather threat, hail and damaging wind possible anywhere from kansas city to washington, d.c. this afternoon so a lot to get on the map and i'll have a whole lot more coming up in your nation's weather. >> going to be a busy morning for you, all right, ginger, thank you. to the boston marathon bomber finally breaking his silence at his sentencing, apologizing for his actions that killed three people and wounded 260 more. but most victims and their families unwilling to accept that apology. abc's ron claiborne in boston with more for us. good morning, ron. >> reporter: hey, good morning to you, robin. really it was extraordinary and for many unexpected when dzhokhar tsarnaev entered the courtroom, he was smiling but when it was his turn to speak he was solemn, soft-spoken and in words at least contrite. ever since the boston marathon bombings our only glimpse of dzhokhar tsarnaev this prison security video.
7:08 am
until now on the day he was to be sentenced to die this apology. i am sorry for the lives that i have taken, for the suffering that i've caused you, for the damage that i've done. and from him, this stunning confession, if there's any lingering doubt, i did do it along with my brother. and affirming his muslim faith he added, i prayed for allah to bestow his mercy upon the deceased. those affected in the bombing and their families. i pay for your relief, for your healing. tsarnaev spoke without ever looking at the survivors and victims in the courtroom. some of them there to give victim impact statements. the mother of krystle campbell, one of three people killed in the twin bombings saying, i don't know what to say to you. what you did to my daughter was disgusting. afterward many said they just cannot accept tsarnaev's words of remorse. >> he blew people up. he got what he deserved. >> reporter: fucarile's son was pierced by hundreds of bits of
7:09 am
shrapnel. he is still suffering. >> he said he was remorseful. i find that hard to believe. it really does not change anything for me because what he took from me, i'm never going to be able to regain. >> reporter: tsarnaev's lawyers say he will appeal his conviction. that could take years, possibly even decades. he will spend that time most likely on federal death row in indiana, terre haute, indiana where he will be confined 23 hours a day to a small spartan cell. robin and david. >> this is really incredible. all these families that suffered through this whole thing and the lives lost. we have covered martin richard, the 8-year-old boy. his father addressed tsarnaev in court and said, you know, he chose destruction, he chose death, this is all on him. we chose love, kindness, peace, this is what makes us different. >> every family has handled it differently and in the days ahead we'll discuss the power of forgiveness because some people are able to do it and some, it's
7:10 am
more of a process to get there. >> yeah, you can understand why. >> oh, absolutely. >> all right, robin. we'll move to that strange and uncomfortable moment at the white house. that scene president obama heckled while speaking during an event he was hosting and abc's jon karl is at the white house and, jon, the president seemed to be drawing the line at being interrupted in his own home. >> reporter: you don't often see the president getting heckled there is breaking news from the u.s. supreme court. we are going to pause and let stations hem in other time zones join urt. this is an abc news special report. the supreme court rules. now reporting. david muir. >> good morning, everyone. we are coming on the air now, because the supreme court has just ruled on the key issue of obama care. ed the affordable care act. the justice is upholding a key provision of the law. i want to get to terry moran who covers the court for us.
7:11 am
what do we know? >> reporter: h good morning, obama care two, conservatives, zero. that's the score. this is the second huge challenge tear down the affordable care act, using the supreme court and once again, chief justice john roberts crushing the hopes of conservatives, upholding a key section of the obama care the affordable care act, saying it is not the job of this court to try to read into inconsistencies in the law and find for one side or the other. he said you got to look at the whole law and the whole law stands. the issue here was a little complicated. it had to do with subsidies that lower income h people get under the law to help them buy insurance. in many states those subsidies are provided by the federal government. opponents of this law discovered inconsistency. they discover one line in a different section of the law that said only states can provide those subsidies. the obama administration said if
7:12 am
you look at the whole structure of this law. congress intended people to get subsidies whether from the state or from the federal government here in a ringing phrase chief justice john roberts sides with m president obama, sides with the liberals. he said in a democracy the power to h p make law rests with those chosen by the people. congress right across the street here. he said in every case we must respect the role of the legislature, take care not to undo here what is done there. the bottom line the justices of the supreme court by 6-3, justice h kennedy also joined in this opinion, sided with prauk, turned back that second big challenge to obama care. the affordable care act will go on and 6 million people who depend on federal subsidies will continue to get them. as you point out this is the second time obama care has been challengened and second time this supreme court m-ruled in
7:13 am
favor of obama care. i want to go to jonathan karl. had h they not ruled this way, they would have put it into quote, utter chaos and the president essentially saying there would be no solution. >> reporter: that's right. the white house was confident they would prevail but they were 'hennive. if the decision went the other way it would have cut the heart of the president's health care law. it would have been devastating from obama care. i expect we'll hear from the president making the point h that h for the second time h critics of the law h dried to challenge the basis in the supreme court and for the second time supreme court m upheld the law. the message from the white house will be p enough is enough. you tried to destroy the law in the courts. republicans tried to repeal this law in congress many many times and it failed. now is the time to recognize this is the law of the land and there should be unity in trying
7:14 am
to make it work. >> jon, i'm curious, is there any relief among republicans with this decision as well because had the supreme court not ruled in favor of obama care would it have landed this political hot potato in their lap what to do with the 6 million americans that would have been affected had the ruling not done gone in the president's way. >> there is absolute relief on the part of republican m governors in this country and republican leaders in congress. keep in mind you have 37 states where people would have lost subsidies where people help buy health insurance. 37 states led by republican if-governors. so this would have been a major problem for them. they opposed this law, obviously but on their watch, they would have seen 6 million of their constituent, more than 6 million lose subsidies that were helping them buy health care and there was no unity on capitol hill among republicans what to do about it. i can tell you i had private conversations with republican
7:15 am
leaders in congress. who secretly -- they wouldn't admit it publicly -- but secretly admitted it went down the way it has. >> jon, stick with us. we want to get to dr. richard besser, our chief medical editor h. who has been following this closely. 6 million h americans rely on federal subsidies. in more than 40 states this would have been a huge impact had it gone the other way. >> we know people are less likely to come in for needed care if they don't have health insurance. 6 million people without access to care who have been a big deal. not people with h procedures dead uled. m but going forward. they would show up for treatment where early treatment h really matters. there's a sigh of relief that they won't have to h scramble to h find resources for their cases. >> following what the justice said all along. justice ginsburg saying i have
7:16 am
never seen anything like this where if you take what the statute says you can have disastrous consequences. it would seem at least for 6 million americans that would be affected by this that that won't happen m being the court upheld the federal subsidies by a 6-3 vote. you heard terry moran report at the top of this special report. this is the second challenge on obama care that reached the supreme court and second time it's gone the president's way. the president has been very clear up until now had they ruled not in favor of obama care that quite frankly, in his words there would not have been an easy solution for this. as jon karl pointed out. with republicans along the way. many of them not publicly but p quietly they won't have to deal with this issue of more than 6 million americans in more than 30 states that rely on this. let get to terry moran at the supreme court because a lot of people will be looking closely at this decision terry.
7:17 am
siding with the president and this chief justice who again ruled in favor of obama care. >> reporter: what a story that is. chief justice h-john roberts a very staunchly conservative chief justice. has been very conservative on affirmative action and other matters for the second time rescuing a liberal president's signature this legislative accomplishment. it mean this we have two precedence from this h court cause establishing obama care as legal from two different legal assaults. we also have as you pointed out. millions and millions of people in the system. it means obama care is now embedded. it's embedded in law and embedded in american life. it can be changed but it's going to be very very hard. it's taken root now in american law and in america's lives. >> terry moran in supreme court. jon karl at the white house. rich bester in new york.
7:18 am
thanks to the entire team. we're on special coverage of the supreme court ruling. 6-3 ruling for h h subsidies. the supreme court justices deciding to side with the president. we'll hear from the president surely later today and will have much more on "gma" and "world news tonight" all right today. until th until then. we rejoin "gma." >> announcer: this has been a special report from abc news. and also, what a week in weather. >> yes, in the southeast too. that's an area we saw several reports yesterday. look at this. at the beach in daytona and, look, that ominous shelf cloud comes over. fortunately nobody hurt there. there were several reports of lightning and, of course, damaging wind in alabama too. all right, we've got to get the heat index brought to you by walgreens.

matthew's brain had no space to develop, doctors had to perform surgery on him at just 10 weeks old. >> his pediatrician caught this early at the well baby check at the 2-month mark. we needed to cut out the fused bone that was on the top of his head. >> reporter: that surgery was a success. for four months matthew wore this helmet 24 hours a day to aid in his recovery. doctors saying catching the condition early was also crucial. >> there are different things we look for which is a misshapen skull, long skinny head with a wide prominent forehead. >> reporter: and despite matthew's surgery, his relieved parents say it took him only three days to get back to his bubbly self. [ laughter ] for "good morning america," paula faris, abc news, new york. >> i can't tell you how happy we are to hear matthew giggling and laughing. he's completely back to normal. >> yeah. >> but what is synostosis, and what should we look for? >> so many people think of the skull as one big bone but it's actually multiple bones that join together. take a look here.
8:14 am
you'll see a long seam running here and another seam here. these need to be individual bones until a child is about 2 years old. for matthew this long seam here became hard bone too early and it caused his skull to grow this way. it had to be corrected. >> the fascinating thing is parents always know. parents who know their little babies can see it. >> that's right. >> what should you look for? they saw it and it actually made a difference. >> it did make a big difference. there's a few things to look for. as a pediatrician when i'm seeing a baby i'm always feeling for that soft spot because it shouldn't get hard too soon. that's one thing to look for. look for any misshapen characteristic to the head like they saw with matthew and when you see your pediatrician, they'll measure the size of the head. if it's not growing properly that's a clue. >> in the meantime, if you don't correct it, what happens? >> well, it can be very dangerous. one is your head is not going to grow properly but you can also have neurologic problems so you want to pick it up early. if you think there's something strange about the shape of your child's head, just ask. >> yeah, but in the meantime, that helmet will really help him. >> it's going to help matthew a

8:17 am
you feel a little bit comfort level that they can help, help with that parenting, especially having such a big family and small children. >> lillian has taken on a role of being the monitor, the mother hen a little bit. make sure that whatever they were posting was appropriate. >> reporter: while the helicopter sibling can be useful, it's important to give it boundaries. >> this could become a really unhealthy habit. if you are constantly monitoring your siblings, if you're invading their privacy when they don't want you there, this isn't going to help your relationship with them. >> reporter: but to the carones, this way of monitoring is a happy medium. >> sisters should definitely be checking up on each other. >> sort of mentoring and helping each other like people are supposed to do. >> reporter: all on board for helicopter siblings. and experts say that helicopter siblings may be tracking their brothers and sisters because they want to feel closer to them. but be aware, keeping such close tabs could backfire. one recent study found that children of helicopter parents are more likely to reject them

the supreme court rules, now reporting. good morning, we are coming on the air, president obama is about to speak about the huge supreme court decision coming down over an hour ago upholding the key part of the affordable care act, obamacare, justice ruled 6-3 in favor of the president's signature law. in his if dissent, justice scalia saying quote, we should really start calling this law. scotus scare. supreme court of the united states, helping to united states score that the president has two major victories at the supreme court when it comes to obamacare let's get to terry moran. at supreme court. terry, that is significant. >> sure is. he's famous for h angry
8:34 am
blistering dissent. nothing makes him angrier. this is the second. chief justice john roberts has rejected conservative challenge to obamacare and upheld the law. and justice scalia essentially -- what you wanted to do is establish this health care law, h and provide subsidies to everyone who need it and not go to this inconsistency discovered and bring the whole thing down. justice scalia said read it as it is. in the end a major victory for president obama. the president in the rose garden right now. >> good morning, everybody. have a seat. five years ago after nearly a century of talk decades of trying a year of bipartisan
8:35 am
debate we finally declared that in america health care is not a privilege for a few but a right for all. over those five years as we have worked to implement the affordable care act there have been successes and setbacks. the setbacks i remember clearly. but as the dust has settled there can be no doubt this law is working. it has changed and in some crazies saved american lives. its set this country on a smarter, stronger course. today after more than 50 votes in congress to appeal or weaken this law, after a presidential election based in part on preserving or repealing this law, after multiple challenges to this law before the supreme court, the affordable care act is here to stay.
8:36 am
this morning the court upheld the critical part of this law, the part that's made it easier for americans to afford health insurance regardless of where you live. if the bipartisan challenge to this law had succeeded millions of americans would have had thousands of dollars worth of taxes taken from them. for many insurance would have become unaffordable and uninsured again. everyone's premiums could have gone up. america would have gone backwards. that's not what we do. that's not what america does. we move forward. so today is a victory for hard-working americans all across this country whose lives will continue to become more security in a changing economy because of this law. if you're a parent you can keep your kids on your plan until they turn 26. something that has covered millions of young people so far because of this law.
8:37 am
if you're a senior or an american with a disability this law gives you discounts on your prescriptions. something that has saved nine million americans an average of $1,600 so far. if you're a woman, you can't be charged more than anybody else. even if you have had cancer or your husband had heart disease or just because you're a woman. your insurer has to offer preventive services like mammograms. they can't place annual or lifetime caps on your care because of this law. because of this law and because of today's decision millions of americans who i hear from every single day will continue to receive the tax credits that have given about 8 in 10 people who buy insurance on the new market places the choice of a health care plan that costs less than $100 a month. when it comes to pre-existing
8:38 am
conditions some day our grandkids will ask us if there was really a time when america discriminated against people who get sick because that is something this law has ended for good. that affects everybody with health insurance, not just folks who got insurance through the affordable care act. all of america has protections it didn't have before. as the laws provisions have taken effect more than 16 million uninsured americans have gained coverage so far. nearly 1 in 3 americans who was uninsured a few years ago is insured today. the uninsured rate in america is the lowest since we began to keep records. that is something we can all be proud of. meanwhile, the law has helped hold the price of health care to its slowest growth in 50 years. if you're a family getting
8:39 am
insurance through your job or you're not using the affordable care act you're still paying about $1,800 less per year on average than you would be if we hadn't done anything. by one leading measure, what business owners pay out in wages and salaries is now finally growing faster than what they spend on health insurance. that hasn't happened in 17 years and that's good for workers. and it's good for the economy. the point is this is not an abstract thing anymore. this is not a set of political talking points. this is reality. we can see how it is working. this law is working as exactly as it's supposed to. in many way this is law is working better than we expected it to. for all the misinformation campaign all the talk of job
8:40 am
destruction, for all the repeal attempts this law is now helping tens of millions of americans. and they have told me that it has changed their lives for the better. i've had moms come up and say, my son was able to see a doctor and get diagnosed and catch a tumor early and he's alive today because of this law. this law is working. and it's going to keep doing just that. five years in this is no longer about a law. this is not about the affordable care act, as legislation or obamacare as a political football, this is health care in america. and unlike social security or
8:41 am
medicare a lot of americans still don't know what obamacare is beyond all the political noise in washington across the country there's people who are directly benefiting from the law but don't even know it. and that's okay. there's no card that says obamacare when you enroll. but that's by design. for this has never been a government takeover of health care despite cries to the contrary. this reform remains what it's always been a set of fairer rules and tougher protections that have made health care in america more affordable more attainable and more about you. the consumer. the american people. it's working. and with this case behind us let's be clear, we have still got work to do to make health care in america even better.
8:42 am
we'll keep working to provide consumers with all the tools you need to make informed choices about your care and to increase use of preventive care that creates bigger problems down the road and keep working to boost the quality of care in hospitals. bring down costs even lower. make the system work even better. already we have seen reductions for example, in the number of readmissions at hospitals. that saves our society money. it saves families money. it makes people healthier. we're making progress. we're going to keep working to get more people covered. i'm going to work as hard as i can to convince more governors and state legislators to take advantage of the law, put pot ticks aside and expand medicaid and cover their citizens. we have states out there that for political reasons are not
8:43 am
covering millions of people they could be covering despite the fact that the federal government is picking up the tab. so we have got more work to do but what we're not going to do is unravel what has now been woven into the fabric of america. and my greatest hope is that rather than keep refighting battles that have been settled again and again and again, i can work with republicans and democrats to move forward. let's join together. make health care in america even better. three generations ago we chose to end an era when seniors were left to languish in poverty. we passed social security. and slowly it was woven into the fabric of america and made a difference in the lives of millions of people.
8:44 am
two generations ago we chose to end an age when americans in their golden years didn't have the guarantee of health care. medicare was passed. and it helped millions of people. this generation of americans chose to finish the job. to turn the page on a past when our citizens could be denied coverage just for being sick. to close the books on a history where tens of millions of americans had no hope of finding decent affordable health care. had to hang their chances on fate. we chose to write a new chapter where in a new economy americans are free to change their jobs start a business chase a new idea raise a family free from fear. secure in the knowledge that portable affordable health care is there for us and always will be. and that if we get sick we're
8:45 am
not going to lose our home. that if we get sick that we're going to be able to still look after our families. that's america's source when we look out for one another, when we take care of each other. when we root for one another's success. when we strive to do better and to be better than the generation than came before us and try to build something better for generations to come. that's why we do what we do. that's the whole point of public service. so this was a good day for america. let's get back to work.
8:46 am
[ applause ] >> president obama in the rose garden with vice president joe biden there saying this is a victory for america. victory of hard working american families he said for college students who depend on their parents' health insurance through obamacare as well. patients with pre-existing conditions and had the supreme court not ruled 6-3 today this could have affected 6.4 million americans who depend on federal subsidies in states with no exchanges. you heard the president say there have been votes more than 50 times to repeal obamacare by our count, our research team off to the side saying the house has voted 67 times to repeal obamacare. obviously, the president saying flat out this is health care in america now. i want to turn to jonathan karl. how big of a victory is this for this second-term president? >> reporter: this is a huge victory. to this president and his political team at the white house. this solidifies what may be the most important part of his
8:47 am
legacy. at least the domestic part. that is the affordable care act or obamacare. as you heard it right from him at the beginning, the affordable care act is here to stay. it has withstood over 60 votes to repeal all or part of obamacare in congress. this the second time it's come before the supreme court. and they were worried about this. they were confident they would win but david, they knew it was a possibility that this decision could go the other way and if it did, it could unravel the law. and what the president said here is there will be no unraveling of this law. it is now part of the fabric of the country. from republicans no backing down they said this will be a battle fought in the next administration. administration of what they hope will be a republican president that would sign one of those congressional bills to repeal and replace obamacare. >> quickly, there were some of the tweets as the president was speaking speaking governor huckabee saying this is an out of control
8:48 am
act of judicial tier any and rand paul saying i will make it my mission to repeal obamacare. you were telling me quietly at least some republicans are grateful the supreme court took this off the table. >> reporter: that is right. republican leaders in congress and governors across the country who face six million americans losing subsidies getting to pay for health care right now with no obviously way to replace that in short order. republicans are wanting to repeal obamacare they are far from what they would do to replace it. >> jon karl, thanks. thanks to terry moran as well. you have been watching our live coverage of the supreme court court decision. 6-3 in favor of obamacare. we'll have much more throughout the day at and team coverage on "world
