washington faces a flooding threat as fall weather settles in. meteorologist pedram javaheri has the latest for us. >> good morning, john and christine. it's really interesting when it comes to how much rainfall could come down across parts. united states. we have a frontal boundary of the trough bringing in cool canadian air across parts of the great lakes, eventually in the north east and southeast as well. about 9 million people from baltimore out towards washington out to a flood watch. late this morning, we get the first bout of heavy rainfall around washington and baltimore. sometimes around 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. all in all, when you take a look at this, the models light up like a christmas tree. we're talking about 4 to 6 inches of rain fall over the next few days. this could be a disastrous amount in some neighborhoods if this plays out. eventually, after the rain falls
we bring in cooler temperatures. here's what it looks like over the next few days. washington into the mid-60s. atlanta in the 70s where they belong. so a pleasant change for some people. >> a pleasant change. elon musk, he is nothing if not a dreamer. i would say nothing if not a salesman. the spacex founder is revealing details in a time line. i will say alleged debates in a alleged time line. >> john berman dripping with skepticism. >> he estimates, i should allegedly estimates, a traditional alaunch will cost $10 billion but says he aims to improve the launch by $5 million. if all goes well, the first customer could take off for mars by 2024. musk says the cost per person may drop to $200,000. if you're skeptical, as much as i admire elon musk.
i just don't buy these space projections. we've been making them for years and years. it's always one way away, two years away. >> if you don't dream big you don't dream. >> just show me the results. show me the spacecraft. so me the space ship. >> show me. let's get an early start on "your money." investors liked what 93 saw from hillary clinton in monday's debate. clinton is seen by wall street as the more predictable candidate. private prison operators, they didn't get a debate bounce. they got a debate trounce. shares up corrections corp. of america. clinton said he would like to seat private operators banned from state systems following the move to take out of the federal prison system. new signs that consumers are feeling pretty good and they're not worried about the election. the reading is 104.
by comparison, it was at 25 at the worst of the recession. this is according to the conference board which is a business association that tracks these things. driving the optimism, unemployment, 4.9%. president obama's approval straight above. 50%. sometimes it can track each other. wages are finally increasing, rising 5.2% last year. the federal reserve is under fire and donald trump could be its biggest critic. here's a claim he repeated in the debate. >> when they raise interest rates you're going to see very bad things happen. the fed is not doing their job. the fed is being more political than secretary clinton. >> i wanted to give you context of the fed and its job. politics is not in the fed's dna. it was designed to be independent way back in 1913. it's independent of the three branches of government. the president of congress cannot tell it were to act on interest rates. it uses economic data to make
that decision. the fed by the way, we looked into the numbers, the fed has been great for taxpayers. poured $117 million back into the coffers from everything from military to food stamps. it's a popular punching bag for donald trump who says that janet yellen is somehow trying to help president barack obama and by extension hillary clinton. when you look at how it's set up, 14-year terms of the members, it's designed to be insulated from washington. >> you can see why it appears to be part of a system, that people see as rigged. they see the fed as the man behind the curtain or in this case, the woman behind the curtain. >> politically, the only thing i've noticed in the last few years is fed members complaining that washington isn't doing its job and it's forced them to take too heavy of a hand in the economy because the fed has budgets, infrastructure spending and tax reform. these are things that your
congress should be doing. they aren't. "early start" continues right now. donald trump on defense this morning, despite the fact he says he won the debate. he is on the trail going after a, not just hillary clinton, but a former miss universe. taking issue with her appearance and now on anderson cooper overnight, she has responded. hillary clinton calls in the reserves, bernie sanders around the campaign trail with one target, young voters. how clinton is trying to capitalize on what she believes is a big debate win. >> one of the world's great agents for peace, a man who worked decades to make this world a better place has passed. shimon peres being remembered for everything he did, not just for israel, but also for the world. good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm
