>> welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning, norah. >> good morning to you charlie. >> we begin with this story. a nevada middle schoolteacher is being called a hero. authorities say he gave his life to protect his students when one of their classmates started shooting yesterday. >> the young gunman is dead and police are trying to answer questions about this latest school shooting. john blackstone is in sparks, nevada, just east of reno. john good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. it was in the early morning darkness about 24 hours ago just after 7:00 a.m. in the west that this schoolyard became a scene of horror. a popular teacher was shot to death. two students were injured, wounded, and before the 13-year-old gunman killed himself. last night students gathered at nearby church to mourn. it was a somber gathering last night as students and their parents remembered their friend and teacher, michael lands berry. the sparks middle school math teacher was also the school's
7:04 am
soccer coach. police say the 45-year-old military veteran was trying to stop the student assailant when he himself was shot and killed. >> what kind of a teacher was he? >> he was an amazing teacher. he taught in ways like i've never seen. >> he was tough but he had a really soft heart. i think that's why he became a teacher. >> reporter: at least one witness pointed to a possible motive -- revenge. >> he pointed to us and he said you ruined my life and i'm going to ruin yours. >> reporter: after shooting lands berry and two other classmates the students sturned the semiautomatic on himself and was killed. federal officials tell cbs news the gun was owned by his parents. police scanner audio described the chaotic scene. >> we're inside the calf fear ya where the students have been huddle sod they are safe here. we're looking for the shooter now. >> i just heard a bang and then i just thought it was just a

7:06 am
in a cbs news poll out this morning only 12% of americans say the government's efforts to sign people up for health insurance is going well. 49% believe it is not working. bill plante is at the white house. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and good morning in the west. well, we now know that there were signs of big trouble before the website opened for business. but the administration launched anyway. "the washington post" says this morning that in a prelaunch test to see if it could handle tens of thousands of people at once, the site crashed when just a few hundred had logged on. now, the president monday admitted that things weren't going well. they were mr. obama's first extensive comments about the major technical hurdles facing users of the website >> nobody's malder than me about the fact that the website isn't working as well as it should, which means it's going to get fixed. >> reporter: that was in stark contrast to what the president said before the health care exchanges opened for business, when he promised purchasing
7:07 am
health insurance would be easy. >> it's like booking a hotel or a plane ticket. >> reporter: mr. obama offered no explanation monday for the fact that over the past three weeks the site has been almost unusable. applicants have been unable to log on or have had their information frozen midapplication. >> we are confident that we will get all the problems fixed. >> reporter: but there's a deadline. under the new health care law, individuals who do not have insurance by march 31st next year must pay a $95 fine. some republicans are already calling for a delay of the individual mandate to purchase health insurance because of the problems white house press secretary jay carney called that unnecessary, suging the administration would be flexible. >> the law makes clear that people who do not have access to affordable care due to other factors will not be penalized. >> reporter: kathleen sebelius will testify in front of a congressional panel next week
7:08 am
where she is expected to be grilled on all aspects of the law. for some critics that's not enough. >> i would say she's got a lot of questions to answer. i think she should be fired. >> reporter: rinse priebus is the chair of the national republican committee. he filed a freedom of information request to find out exactly how many people have successfully signed up for health insurance so far. >> this is an answer to a very simple question that they know right now what the answer is. and they're not telling us. >> reporter: the administration's biggest fear is that the difficulty signing up will keep away healthy young people. the health care act needs them to offset the cost of insuring those who are older and sicker. charlie, norah? >> bill thank you. with us now republican senator marco rubio from florida. he says he will introduce a bill to postpone the mandate until health is fixed. good morning. >> good morning. >> it was abated during the time
7:09 am
of passing, when the legislation was considered by congress during the campaign. it was debated. what do you think you can accomplish now? >> well i think those are two separate issues we e need to confront. the first is whether obama care should exist or function, and obviously i believe it should be repealed or replaced. that's a separate issue i'm raising with regard to the flaw i intend to introduce. i'm arguing the law says clearly if at some point next year you do not have health insurance, you haven't bought it, you'll owe the irs money, a penalty. you talked about it in the package that introduced this segment. the reality is it's unfair to punish people for not purchasing a product that they can't purchase right now because the technology that's in place, the website that they're supposed to buy it on by the president's own admission is not working. all i'm calling for is a delay on that requirement until the general accounting office of the united states certifies that the website is up and working and has been functioning for six consecutive months. i think that's the prudent approach approach. >> do you think it has a chance of passing? >> we hope so.
7:10 am
every week that goes by it becomes apparent the problems inherent in the way the website operates are very significant. i think it's going to be difficult to reverse in this in a number of weeks as we get closer to the deadline. you have "consumer reports" coming out yesterday advising people to stay off the website. i think as weeks go on there will be a look for a solution to this problem because it's not fair to punish people for not buying something that's not available. >> senator, good to see you. >> good to see you, norah. >> i want to ask you about what jeb bush said. he said republicans should show a little restraint on this, maybe let the health care law play itself out, and cease the massive dysfunction. do you disagree with jeb bush? >> i think the approach i'm outlining is a restrained one, although i believe the whole thing should be repealed and replaced. this bill doesn't do that. it's calling for a limited delay on the individual mandate until the website is fixed. i think that's a very prudent approach. quite frankly, i think it's where we're going to have to wind up anyway. you saw yesterday the white
7:11 am
house didn't rule out a delay, jay carney didn't rule it out because they understand the problems this website faces are significant and will be very difficult to fix in just a number of weeks. >> does this also mean there won't be another government shutdown when this comes up again, that you would agree more with the republican leader mitch mcconnell, as opposed to senator ted cruz who says he'll do anything to stop obama care? >> i've never believed we should shut down the government. on the contrary i voted and supported the idea we should keep the government open and fund it, that we shouldn't put any more money into this disastrous health care law. that's been my position. it remains my position. one of the most fundamental powers of congress is to fund things or not fund things. i certainly don't believe we should be funding an insurance law that's going to do so much harm to the american dream and the american economy. >> i don't quite understand that. explain it to me. how can you say i don't want to defund it but i don't think we should put any more money in it? what's the difference? >> that's the point.
7:12 am
if you don't fund it you don't put any more money -- >> you don't want to use the word defund. >> i believe in repealing it but defunding is a way to repeal it. the question was about a government shutdown. i never believed in a government shutdown. and in fact the senate democrats have multiple opportunity tons to fund the entire government. i myself would not fund obama care. >> defunding it would mean shutting gown the government when this issue comes up again. >> why? >> you're say dog not fund medicare or do not fund obama care? >> i actually don't think that's a fair way to represent it. i think the right way to represent it is ask the democrats who control the senate are you willing to shut down the government simply to protect obama care. is obama care that important that you're willing to fund nothing unless obama care is funded because that's the position they adopted. look, i made a motion on the senate floor to fully fund head start and they blocked that because it didn't fund obama care. >> what's the difference in your position and senator cruz? >> senator cruz will have to speak for himself about what
7:13 am
his -- >> you know what his position is. >> his position was, at least as far as the last incidents were concerned, his position was we shouldn't fund obama care. i agree with that position. i will not vote for a budget that spends a penny more on this disastrous health care law. the position of senate democrats adopted was unless we fund obama care we will fund nothing. i don't think that's a reasonable position. and that's the position they adopted. and seem to have gotten away with in the eyes of some. >> senator marco rubio, thank you for joining us. >> good to see you. the obama administration is dealing with another controversy this morning. secretary of state john kerry wet meth with the french foreign minister today in paris. their meeting comes after a french newspaper reported the nsa reported more than 70 million french phone calls. the foreign minister says that is unacceptable. president obama phoned french president hollande to address the issue. the white house says there are legitimate questions aamong friends and allies about the
7:14 am
intelligence-gathering program. concerns about fires on board for two delta flights to make emergency landings. plane s a fire was quickly put out. a flight from atlanta to seattle made an emergency landing in pasco, washington overnight. there was fire in the cargo bay. after landing, no flames were found. in florida, authorities are one step closer to finding those who helped in a prison escape. two convicted killers were recaptured over the weekend after using fake documents to get out. mark strassmann is in panama city beach florida. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. joseph denkins and charles walker are among the thousand inmamt at the bay county jail and have been since they were recaptured on saturday. now authorities say they're closing in on possible accomplices. the florida department of law enforcement tells us that they've identified suspects who may have helped the men escape
7:15 am
by creating the forged documents. authorities are now building a case against them. we've also learned that there may have been as many as seven cases of florida inmates trying to use forged papers to win early release. of those, three were successful. walker jenkins, and another inmate who escaped for one day before being caught. now investigators are focusing on the paper trail that helped walker and jenkins elude authorities. the convicts are not cooperating with officials, but their families are being cooperative. dna and fingerprint testing is also being done to help determine who prepared the fake documents which may have been purchased for thousands of dollars each. as this investigation continues, state lawmakers are now calling for a hearing. they want to get to the bottom of what happened. they say this is an embarrassment and that the public needs to be protected. charlie, norah? >> thank you. a suicide bombing attack on a bus in russia is raising concerns this morning about security at the upcoming olympics. the russian city of sochi is preparing to host the winter
7:16 am
games in february. mark phillips is in london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. this bombing was not the deadliest of what's been a string of terrorist bombings in russia but it has three crucial elements that make it stand out. it kills people it was apparent licaried out bay woman suicide bomber, and it was captured on a video camera. watch the bus. a dashboard camera of the sort in common use in russia captured the explosion. it killed at least six people and wounded dozens. the attack took place in the southern city formerly stallen grad close to the region of southern russia still seething with resentment over moscow's suppression of the militant separatist movement there. a spokesman for the russian investigating agency identified the suicide bomber as nadia, a so-called black widow. known to be involved in the

militant movement in nearby dagestan. ment. she's not the first black widow and the russians fear she won't be the last. the russians are calling the bombing a test shot ahead of the upcoming sochi winter olympics. militant groups they say, want to create an atmosphere of fear and panic. and the russians may have another reason to worry. blowback for the says cbs news security consultant wavn zarate. >> you have the militant and terrorist groups that have operated for a number of years in the caucuses that present a threat like we saw in this bus bombing. but we also see future threats emerging out of syria where russia is playing the role of the lead villain, where militants and jihadis from around the world may decide they want to attack russia. >> reporter: sochi is already shaping up as possibly the tightest olympic security operation ever. attacks like this one aren't going to make the atmosphere any

we'll ask captain sully sullenberger about the growing threat. plus the work going on this in lab could mean the end of baldness. the scientist leading a new study will be here. she'll show us how it could redefine hair replacement. that's ahead. new developments in greece. the top prosecutor is calling for a nationwide probe of birth certificates as the mystery widens over maria, a young girl found living with a gypsy family. holly williams is in greece this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. the little girl has blond hair and doctors believe she is around 6 years old. the couple who were raising her called her maria and say they adopted her. but they're now behind bars and the greek police are hunting for the little girl's biological parents. police discovered maria with gypsies. they noticed she bore no resemblance to the couple who were raising her. dna tests proved maria isn't
7:32 am
their biological daughter and yesterday the two were charged with child abduction. though they say they informally adopted maria after her birth parents abandoned her. in his camp in central greece we heard the same thing from other members of the community where maria used to live. a man and his wife told us the girl often visited their house to play with their grandchildren. are there any abductors or trafficked children living in the community here? "no," they told me. they believe the roma are being discriminated against because in greece there are rumors that they still children and send them to beg on the street. the greek authorities say the woman they charged also falsified the identity documents of several other children. that's added to suspicions that she was trafficking children. the father told us the woman was simply confused and his wife said that all she wants is for
7:33 am
maria to come home. in athens, the charity that's now caring for the little girl has taken thousands of calls and told us it's identified eight missing children from around the world who could be maria. international law enforcement groups are much less optimistic. an american official here in greece told us they're not pursuing any u.s. connections, and maria doesn't match up with any of the missing children listed by interpol. charlie, norah? >> thanks, holly. a new fbi report shows a dozen cases of people ailing laser pointers at airplanes. an oregon man pleaded not guilty monday to charges of pointing a high-powered beam at an airline earlier this month. the prosecutor claimed the man admits doing so plooets at least 25 times for excitement. captain sully sullenberger is a cbs news aviation and safety expert. he's in san francisco this morning. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. hi, nora. >> how big a problem is this? >> it's a serious and a growing
7:34 am
problem. it's increased 1,100% since 2005. now we're at a level where 3,600 of these laser strike events occur every year. that means ten of them happen every night around the country. it's by no means a small problem. >> as a pilot, how distracting is this? >> well it could be very distracting. you have to imagine these are high-powered lasers that have a very dazzling effect. they create flash blindness and can leave intense after-images on the pilot's retina. these distractions may last up to several minute, and they take one pilot out of the loop and make the other pilot have to do all the flying and monitoring of that for some period of time. close to landing or just after takeoff it could lead to a critical situation. >> so what can you do about it other than taking down each individual that you catch? >> well we certainly need to increase awareness of this among the general population about how risky these events are.
7:35 am
but i think a well-publicized prosecutions, and if these lead to significant jail time and large fines as this one might, this gentleman in organize rg is facing five years in prison and a $250,000 fine hopefully will discourage this kind of dangerous behavior. >> you talk about this new awareness. is there any training you can do for pilots? >> you know, it's almost like the first strike issue, the guidance we've gotten so far is general and not particularly useful. i look forward to getting better guidance for crews in cases like this. >> good to see you this morning. >> good to be with you. this month maine became the first state to legalize buying prescription drugs from abroad. while the fda would often turn a blind eye, it remained illegal until now. well as don dahler report some are wondering if the system meant to save money could actually come the cost of safety.
7:36 am
the cost of safety. >> reporter: for years, robert rosen chiefed his cholesterol medication that would get it for free. but he opted to order the drugs from canada. >> i never had any side effects so in my mind they were safe. >> reporter: it was a partnership between a canadian provider canarx. rosen was able to purchase from canadian pharmacies at significantly lower costs. the city of portland would cover the entire cost his medication. in september 2012 then maine attorney general william snyder halted the program amid grow ging positions. no-no longer stated the practice, but they made it legal. >> it allows us to renight a program that's been successful
7:37 am
in the city. >> reporter: portland mayor brennan has been a major proponent of the law. >> one of the most significant cost drivers within health care is the cost of pharmaceutical or 3ri7gs drugs. >> reporter: brennan said ordering drugs from abroad saved employees millions of dollars. the average american spends $900 a year on prescriptions. that's down from 2011 but according to canarx it may decrease it by half. still they're suing the state over the ruling. they claim it's not just about losing profits. arguing the law puts main residents at risk of serious harm. foreign drug companies are not monitored by the fda. though a prescription might be imported from canada production of that drug may have been outsourced by the canadian company to a country with few safety regulations. and buyers may end up with
7:38 am
counterfeit or dangerous medications. safety has been an issue in the past. in 2003 canarx was warned twice bit fda for shipments of insulin that were not kept at proper temperature. they no longer distribute medications that need refrigerator. in a statement, canarx told cbs they've not heard from them since but kenneth mccall who opposes the bill believes this is a bargain with too many costs. >> there's never been any oversight, certainly, it's easy to claim that you're perfect when no one's watching. but that's a concern that say significant public concern. there's absolutely no accountability in this bill. no protection for people in maine. >> reporter: still, portland has already reinstated the program which could save the 1250e and its lows over $400,000 annually. for "cbs this morning,"don dahler, new york. and a new study finds a new way to grow hair.

8:05 am
obama care and it still has the same potential, does it not, to do damage to what you think is the best future for the republican party in its efforts against obama care? >> exactly. it still has no chance whatsoever of being enacted into law as long as we have a democratic president and a democratic senate. it's a pipe dream. you don't conduct politics on a pipe dream. and the fact is that if obama care is going to fail and if it is going to be repealed it will be as a result of the kinds of calamities that we're now see that are intrinsic to obama care, that it collapses on its own weight rather than pushed from the outside. i just think it's a bad street gee. i don't disagree with the aim, i just think it's absolutely the very wrong way to go about it. >> you talk in your book about your medical training in psychiatry and about how powerful it can be how powerful denial can be. do you think the gop tea party

8:07 am
impossible for republicans to lose the house because there are so many secure seats. i think what might be the consequence is that republicans who had an excellent chance of winning the senate there are five very vulnerable democratic senators up for re-election next year. that may be forfeited. so the idea that republicans might be able to recapture control of the congress and, in fact with that after 2014 to put pressure on obama care and try to bring it down that again, ironically might have dissolved as a result of the negative effects. >> is there one republican candidate that you think would be the best person to turn to in 2016? >> i wouldn't say one, but i would say this: the governors are the ones who derive the most benefit from the general disgust that people have with

prices would go up a lot. this is a huge opportunity. >> yes i thought so. as someone trying to sell a house for four years. how do you think the shutdown affected the government long-term and short-term? >> well i think the shutdown is a reflection of division in our society. the big problem is we don't agree. and it's not just in congress. it goes beyond that. other than that i think we didn't default. i don't think we're ever going to default. >> you don't? >> i believe in -- our government to that extent. and it will be all right. >> and quickly, you predicted the mortgage and the tech bubbles of the last two decades. what's next? >> slow recovery. >> a slow recovery. >> many things can happen but best guess. >> here's the thing about the nobel prize, mr. fallma got one
