tv Way Too Early MSNBC November 14, 2013 5:30am-6:00am EST
>> one place he won't be in a drunken stupor. more from an especially pick city council meeting courtesy of our friends north of the border. whitey bulger will be sentenced today. families of victims get a final chance to vent their anger at the now elderly convicted killer. let's end on a fun note or rather ap orgasmi maybe aporgas. the when harry met sally flash mob. this is way too early. what a way to start your day, right? listen, have actually a really great show today. i'm brian shactman. it is thursday, november 14. we have apon air engagement proposal from a friend of mine which will be very interesting. we'll have that for you. and also we know about the cult
status of the mcrib? wait up you see what it looks like before the barbecue sauce is added.up you see what it loo like before the barbecue sauce is added. just a warning, you might want to turn away in the cooler. but don't turn off the tv. we want to begin with obama care and the eye popping enrollment numbers. for supporters, the results are not only disappoint, but also politically troubling. with close to 850,000 applications completed, gijust over 106,000 people have actually selected insurance plans between october 1 and november 2. you go inside those numbers, you learn this. 79,000 were from state based exchanges. that accounts for 75% of all the signups. that means just over 26,000 people getting their health care coverage through the federal program. that breaks down to just 1% of the estimated 48 million americans without health insurance. the congressional budget office expected 7 million individuals to sign up for obama care in the
first year. in september, the white house said it expected 450,000 to sign up during the program's first month. so 450,000, 26,000. we want to get more on this from casey hunt from nbc news. i guess, first of all, if the site works great in a month, will this go away or now is this taking on a life of its own? >> well, it could, but the administration isn't even at this point promising that it will be done. that's what they have said, but girls testifying up on capitol hill yesterday wouldn't commit to meeting that deadline that they have set for themselves. and at a certain point you start to get into a place where it's not actually mixable, the numbers just don't add up. the risk pools they're trying to build to make the whole plan work would fall apart and right now we have no indication that the website is on its way to be able to ham the capacity that it will need to be able to handle. >> so the key yes, are democrats starting to bail on this. >> we're starting to see early
signs of that. and senator jeff merkley, who is not exactly a red state democrat from oregon, signed on to this plan that mary landrieu has been pushing that would essentially try to keep the promise that was made that americans would be able to keep their health insurance. senator fine tieinstein is also board with that. democrats just feel abandoned by the white house. they feel like they're not getting enough information, they feel like the white house has done a really poor job of this and that eventually they're the ones who will have to pay the price. after all, the president's approval rating, he may not be running for re-election again, but they certainly are. and it's going to hurt them if it keeps going this way. >> we'll see what kind of distance people start to makes a they gear toward 2014. casey, thanks so much for getting up early for us. now for the philippines where president obama is urging all americans to come contribute to relief efforts. the president says some of the
affected areas are islands that american and philippine forces helped liberate cduring world wr ii. hundreds are on the ground with aid and that number expected to triple. countries around the world also picking up the pace. united nations world food program says rice and canned foods have been delivered to 49,000 people, of course that's a fraction of those affected. but the mayor of tacloban says impassable roads and lack of vehicles are forcing officials to choose between delivering aid or clearing bodies. as dr. nancy snyderman reports, american doctors working around the round in areas that have so far escaped the world's attention. >> reporter: city hall, badly damaged and now functioning as the local hospital. inside, american froms and veterans from across the country are feverishly working. wooden desks serve as operating
room tables and flashlights as overhead lights. upstairs, dr. sarah may from seattle treats an #-year-old girl whose leg was cut by flying debris. >> unfortunately, we've been doing procedures like this every day. we dress the wound, give them the one day of antibiotics that we have. >> cutting our dressings into 24 dressings so that we have enough to get through. but we need supplies quickly. >> reporter: for those who have surviv survived, the challenges of putting life back together are just beginning. >> that was dr. nancy snyderman reporting. also brand new video of the hospital the super typhoon hit in the town of san juan. the images show upthe rooted trees, bending in the wind almost horizontal. the death toll this morning is up to 2300 people. a closed door briefing with secretary of state john kerry
and vice president joe biden left republican senators fuming about a possible deal with iran. in the words of two lawmakers, the meeting was anti-israel and unconvincing. the meeting was set up to try to stop congress from imposing a new round of economic sanctions, a possible death blow for diplomacy. but senator bob corker said there were precious few details on what any new deal would look like, adding he was very disappointed. senator marc kirk called the briefing fairly anti-israel. a senator aid told the "new york times" anytime he anybody would say anything about what would the israelis say, they would get cut off and kerry would say stop listening to the israelis on this. and while there is some support in the senate for cutting a deal with iran, several high profile republicans are simply shaking their heads. >> published reports are accurate, we owe our french allies a great deal of credit
for preventing the major powers in the negotiations to so-called p5 plus 1 from making a bad, bad, bad interim deal with iran. >> if the iranians insist upon enriching, they have the ability to at that time the you'uranium especially rich it in the future, that is a nonstarter and you'll wake up one day with a north korea in the mideast. >> meanwhile sus aprice says sus it's premature to criticize a deal. supervisors were removed from the secret service detail because of alleged misconduct. the investigation began after a woman called police from a washington hotel to say an agent was trying to force his way into her room. reports say the agent had accidently left a bullet there earlier in the day after unloading his weapon when the woman became uncomfortable being
around the gun. the investigation reportedly revealed he and another agent also september sexually explicit e-mails to a female colleague. the investigation of course comes 18 months after secret service agents were involved in a prostitution scandal in the cup of columbia before president obama visited that country. the secret service had no comment on the current investigation. let's go to toronto where the city council asking embattled mayor rob ford to step down after what can only be characterized as a heated meeting. the council voted wednesday, asked the matter to leave temporarily, though it has no actual power to force him from office. ford repeatedly declining to leave adding he is not addicted to alcohol or drugs. he said he didn't know the men in that picture were allegedly gang members when he took the photo at a house that court documents call a drug den. >> that is not a crack house. >> sorry? >> that is not a crack house. >> and what is it? >> it is a house with a family,
with a father and a mother and three sons and a daughter. have you been into that house shall. >> i have noed interest being in that house. i'm not a crack user. >> mayor ford also made a stunning admission. >> have you purchased illegal drugs in the last two years? >> be careful. >> yes, i have. >> thank you. >> new court documents came out later in the day. staffers reportedly accuse ford of a wild st. patrick's day in 2012. that's when ford allegedly took cocaine, oxycontin and partied with suspected escort, even produce the one of them to city hall. not really sure how to segue here, but i will to boston and a huge court case in just a few hour, boston mobster whitey bulger will learn his fate. a judge is expected to announce
his statements after hearing emotional statements in court yesterday from the victims' families. prosecutors asking for a life sentence. of course he's in his early 80s. bulger stared at a table without saying a word. they referred to him as a coward and domestic terrorist. one of the jurors exchanged letters with bulger and she regrets finding him guilty because 6 the deals the government made with mob witnesses. >> it doesn't mean he is guilty. it was not a fair trial. it was a circus, it was a sham and everybody is falling for it. >> bulger was convicted in august of 11 counts of murder, racketeering, money laup dnderi and extortion. all three indices closing in positive territory yesterday. let's go to geoff cutmore live for us in london. good morning, geoff.
>> good morning to you. a couple good stories for you here. oil independence a step closer for the united states. oil production has overtaken imported oil consumption. the other good news here, the gas price appears to be falling across the united states. elsewhere, markets turning around yesterday on the janet yellen comments. she goes into senate confirmation hearings today. they start at 10:00. but she sounded quite dovish about the position that the fed will take going forward under her helm. that helped turn away a losing day on the market, brian. >> i don't know how familiar you are with snap chat and its reputation, but i think a lot of people were pretty shocked not only that it got offered the amount of money it was offered, but also that it turned it down. >> it's incredible. apparently people who know about these things say the snap chat founders were offered billions by facebook. they turned it down.
these guys are in their early 20s. apparently they think they can can can make even more money going forward. and that reputation, brian, i understand some people sent quite racy pictures over snap chat because they disappear. >> that's what they say. they allegedly disappear and people supposedly do that. i don't have any grekt experiendirect experience with it. other business related news, crocs is considering going private. the company gained huge success in 2006 with the brightly colored clogs with the holes in them. the company's profit fell dramatically in the last quarter because of weaker sales in the u.s. and japan. people are polarized on crocs. so the company is in trouble. it went out of business. would it be a big loss or a fashion good rid answdancriddan? we'll have some of your answers
