7:03 am
>> we are tracking that all morning long. we begin with the breaking news on president biden's investment plan. moments ago democrats unveiled a billionaire's tax to fund the deal that targets the ten richest americans, already facing legal and political questions. our congressional correspondent rachel scott is on capitol hill with the latest. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning. democrats have been scrambling to find a way to pay for this nearly $2 trillion economic package and this morning, they say they will tax the rich to cover it, proposing a new billionaire's tax that would target some of the nation's wealthiest americans. we're talking about elon musk, jeff bezos and mark zuckerberg who pay little in income tax. here's how it world work. americans with more than $1 billion in assets or more than $100 million in income over three consecutive years will face a new tax. this would apply to increased value on their assets. so if a billionaire's investment in a stock doubled to $2 million, they would be taxed on that $1 million gain even if they never cashed out on earnings.
7:04 am
all experts suggest this would apply to 700 of the wealthiest people in the u.s. another proposal would set a 15% minimum tax rate on companies such as amazon that earned more than 1 billion in profit. that's been endorsed by one key moderate hold-out, senator kyrsten sinema. none of this comes without risk. some have already questioned the constitutionality of that billionaire's tax and any legal challenges could undermine president biden's promise this all would be paid for, george. >> that comes if it passes. the big question, is it enough to close the deal for the democrats? >> reporter: yeah, well, the bottom line here, george, they are running out of time. the president wanted a deal before he heads to europe tomorrow. last night he invited senator kyrsten sinema and senator joe manchin to the white house but democrats are at odds over expansion of medicare and medicaid and paid family leave. george? >> rachel scott, thank you very much. michael? we turn to that nor'easter bringing extreme damaging winds blasting at 94 miles per hour and rob marciano is tracking the

7:06 am
whipping gusting between 55 and 60 miles per hour. we're actually about two blocks from the water. the road is closed down there because the combination of the high tide and force of all of that wind flooded out the road. >> reporter: the storm hammering parts of the new york city tri-state area. sirens wailing in sullivan county, new york. while in manhattan, city streets resembling rivers after 3 1/2 inches of rainfall. winds taking out this massive tree landing on this small suv. and crews preparing for the worst in queens, water pumps lining the streets hoping to avoid situations brought on by remnants of hurricane ida just last month. this woman's home flooded with eight feet of water then. >> i refuse to go downstairs to check. last time i was by myself and i was about to get killed downstairs. >> reporter: in new jersey cars stalling in knee deep water.

7:09 am
wave. >> reporter: the fda is now expected to officially authorize giving the vaccine to children in this age group and then the medicine will start shipping across the country. the cdc still has to give the final green light but it's looking very likely that the vaccine will already have shipped to pharmacies and doctors' offices ready to become shots in arms. on a call with the nation's governors tuesday the white house warned about a shorter shelf life for these pediatric doses of the vaccine. about ten weeks compared to six to nine months for adult doses of the same vaccine. >> i don't want to see wastage, so we encourage you to build flexibility into the system. you can move around within your state or territory. >> reporter: scientists say this is about keeping kids safe. 6 million americans under 18 have gotten sick with covid since the pandemic began. these 8-year-old triplets from north carolina were part of the pfizer clinical trial at duke.

their mother is still waiting to learn if they got the vaccine or placebo. >> these guys were born at 26 weeks, 6 days so we know what it is to have a kid on a ventilator so it was important for us to never have to go back for any hospital stays that we could prevent. >> reporter: about 28 million american children could be eligible for this new vaccine. it's very possible that many of those children could be fully vaccinated by december. robin? >> steve, tell us about this new guidance on a possible fourth dose of vaccine for some folks. >> reporter: that's right, robin. if you got the moderna or the pfizer vaccine, which are two-dose vaccines, and you are immune come ppromised and you ga booster shot, the cdc is talking about another booster shot six months after your last shot. this is just for populations that are immunocompromised.
7:11 am
robin? >> all right, thank you, steve. george? we turn to a new warning from the pentagon, a top official testified to congress that the afghan terror group isis-k could have the ability to attack the united states within six months. our chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz is tracking the latest. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. with no u.s. troops now in afghanistan after that chaotic evacuation, pentagon officials now say both isis in afghanistan and al qaeda have the intent to launch attacks on the west and that isis could be able to do so by as early as next spring and al qaeda could do so within two years. estimates say there are about 2,000 isis fighters left in afghanistan, of course, isis was responsible for the suicide attack at the kabul airport that killed those 13 american service members and dozens of afghans. the taliban, like the u.s., is an enemy of isis so they are motivated to go after isis, but the pentagon says their ability to do so is yet to be determined, george. >> martha, from the beginning of the afghan withdrawal officials
7:12 am
have reassured us they have the capabilities to contain this terror threat. >> they have, george. the u.s. has facilities in the persian gulf and qatar and bahrain to monitor and go after terror groups but that is more than 1,500 miles away and as yet the u.s. has not been able to secure basing rights any closer than afghanistan and without a u.s. presence on the ground, intelligence simply isn't as good and the risk is higher, george. >> martha raddatz, thanks. michael? we turn to new concerns this morning for the health of queen elizabeth. the 95-year-old monarch canceling the trip to next week's global climate summit in scotland a week after spending the night in the hospital. ian pannell is live outside windsor castle with the latest. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, michael. that's right, for now the queen is here at windsor castle and staying put. the messaging is keep calm and carry on but, of course, this latest news will prompt some anxieties about the queen's health. overnight queen elizabeth canceling another public

7:14 am
carrying out virtual meetings with ambassadors. this morning, buckingham palace is remaining tight-lipped on precisely why she went to the hospital and what, if any, procedures she had don 's not covid relatedhas been to well, despite the reassurances from buckingham palace i think the fact that they tried to manage the news about the queen's hospitalization last week is going to leave many wondering how candid they are now being with, i think, some anxiety in britain about the real health of the country's longest reigning monarch. michael? >> anxiety around the world. ian, thank you. robin? now to the latest on that deadly shooting at an idaho mall that left two dead. the police have identified the gunman who later died at the hospital but are still searching for a motive. alex perez has more. he's there in boise for us. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. still a lot of unanswered questions here but authorities say the suspected gunman was

7:34 am
from set was killed when baldwin fired a prop gun. "the daily mail" publishing new photos of hannah gutierrez reed. they say gutierrez reed prepared the gun before dave halls took it off a prop cart and handed it to baldwin. halls saying he did not know the gun contained live round, but when it went off in baldwin's hands it killed hutchins and also hit director joel souza. >> was the gun loaded with live rounds? >> i cannot tell you that. >> reporter: onset accidents are not as rare as you might think. a report from the associated press detailing from 1990 to 2014 there were at least 194 serious accidents on film and television sets. including 43 fatalities. but of those incidents only once was someone criminally prosecuted. we're told investigators are trying to get additional search warrants signed off on by a
7:35 am
judge. considering they've already searched the scene of the accident on the movie set, just learning where they're looking for more evidence could be telling, guys.stonofhis. we'll bring indan . dan, what do you expect to hear from the d.a. and sheriff today? >> i expect them to talk about what they found so far and where they go from here. i don't expect that they'll announce charging decisions, et cetera. what they found so far is going to be what we've seen in some of those search warrants and the single most important thing that they have found so far is that according to the d.a. they found bullets. if they found scene, that in and of itself is a problem. that's different from shell casings. if they found actual bullet, ammunition that was all over that scene the question is going to be why? why were there live bullets on that scene? >> that gets to the possibility of criminal charges for the producers. >> absolutely.
7:36 am
look, criminal charges as the d.a. says are on the table. they have to be on the table right now. someone died there and sure seems like there were a lot of problems on the set. does that necessarily mean you get criminal charges? no. problems don't necessarily mean criminal charges. you'll need recklessness, negligence that led to the death. this d.a. has to keep criminal charges on the table as of right now. >> how long do you think it'll take to sort this out? >> she's saying weeks, if not months. here's my guess, my guess, it will take them a couple of weeks but we may not hear anything for a couple of months. maning i think once they figure out where they're going with it, then they will approach probably attorneys for the defendants, et cetera, and we'll see where it goes from there. i think that this is going to move comparatively quickly. >> what do you make of the unconfirmed reports that some were taking part in target practice? >> see, if that's true that they were using the same weapon, that is totally unacceptable, right?
7:37 am
you talk to anyone who has worked on a set -- >> with live ammo. >> right. they will tell you that the notion thaamean t were for target practice is being brought back in to use is unacceptable. the word that one expert in this used to me it has to be sequestered. when you have a weapon like that you sequester it. you would never in breaks take it out and use it for shooting, et cetera. so now the question is going to be civil versus criminal. there is no doubt there are going to be lawsuits filed about this. the question is going to be -- and we'll have to read through the lines a little bit today in the press conference will it rise to the level of possible criminal charges. >> quite a story, dan abrams, thanks very much. coming up, the 12-year-old bitten by a crocodile in a mexico resort speaks out in his first tv interview. walter, twelve o' clock. get em boy!

8:03 am
income tax, and here's how it would work. for the first time americans with more than a billion dollars in assets are more than $100 million in income over three years will face a new tax. now, this would apply to increased value on their assets so, for example, if a billionaire's $1 million investment in stock doubled to $2 million, they would then be taxed on that $1 million gain even if they never cashed out on earnings. in all experts suggest this would apply to roughly 700 of the wealthiest people in the u.s. but some are already questioning the constitutionality of this and that is just one issue. democrats are now scrambling to come to terms on just several other issues all before the president leaves for europe tomorrow and they're running out of time to do it. >> rachel, thanks very much. now to the future of travel. with the holidays around the corner, some major airlines are streamlining the passenger experience with brand-new technology that could save you time. transportation correspondent gio benitez joins us from hartsfield jackson airport in atlanta with all the details. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, michael, good

8:32 am
another motivation for me in the cookbook is not to posture and pretend that i have a veneer of perfection. i'm totally not that person so this book is very intimate and personal. 300 of your photographs and we wrote the whole thing together. it's our essays and food is our love language. igeart of our friendship. >> pilar, what did you think when drew said, let's write a cookbook together? >> it's sort of an incredible opportunity. she mentioned it like as an idea and i was like, no, you got to be kidding. >> i didn't call her. we were just in the kitchen together. >> showed me around the breakfast table. >> drew, you've done so much. you're an actor, talk show host, a businesswoman. why did you want to add like chef or author to your resume? >> you know, i think that in the '80s, '90s, even the '70s, likr that lifestyle expert never spoke to me but because it had that veneer of do as i do because i do it so well, we're
8:33 am

8:34 am
let alone in a hearty bowl on its own, it has that flavor profile that is really addictive. >> so true. >> how do we make it? >> over here in the pot we've got leeks that have been sauteing. get those nice and soft and caramelized then we also roasted off -- exactly, poblanos. >> pan cooking is so easy. >> we have poblanos, garlic, tomatilla, shallots. we'll drop it into the pot. >> then you're going to puree it into what is a true heaven. i also want to tell people i'm a home cook and if i can attack something without so much intimidation other people can too. >> anyone can absolutely do it. so -- >> if i can do it, anyone can do it. i promise you. but i'm very passionate about flavors and spices and sort of having traveled around the world my whole life and really learned. we're a cookbook collector. i watched people in the pandemic

make sourdough bowls together as a collective experience which incentivized me. to do this. we made this in the pandemic. we launched our show in the pandemic. it was an invitation to put ourselves out there with humility and a lack of, again, perfection. >> which is fine but this is going to taste good. i can feel it. vegetables and beans in there. >> we put aquafaba. this is the special ingredient. so the soup is actually vegan and to give it that sort of roundness and that body you add that and bring it to a bowl and puree and she's plating it up. it's super, super simple. hopefully everybody will join us in cooking this soup. >> how do you serve this? >> the art of learning plating too is so much fun to me. i just really, really love it and if you do a little napkin and a little plating for yourself.
8:36 am
>> feels a little special. >> it's a gift. >> yeah, it totally is. >> i'm also looking at a sandwich. what do we have? >> this is the grilled apple and brie arugula sandwich that i really love. >> oh, wow. > what you need to know about this sandwich that was such a tip for me as a home cook is butter your bread first. don't put it in the pan, otherwise you'll get a wet, soggy sandwich. you do this you'll get that crisp -- >> you look like you're -- you don't get a wet soggy sandwich. >> not here. not in this kitchen. not with us rebel homemakers. you might look like a chicken with your head cut off while you're cooking, not pilar, me. it's a pleasure for me to learn and cook with someone who is a professional chef, self-taught, self-made and come at it with that kind of spirit. >> it is a pleasure to cook with both of you. >> thank you.

in need. what was the message you three wanted to impart with "a bear to share," the book? >> well, our mission at baby2baby is to give back to children living in poverty, so when we sat down and got together to write the book, we really wanted that message to be a part of it and when you read it, it's really told in such a gentle way that children can understand and we really want to teach children to give back from an early age and at baby2baby that's been a part of our mission, children come in and volunteer and they come and make bundles for children in need and so when we could sit down to write this book we wanted to make sure that was in there and that children, you know, the young generation could really learn about giving back and i think it's done in a really special way. >> yeah, i would agree with that. norah, congrats also on baby2baby, celebrating ten years. you guys have actually changed
