tv Way Too Early MSNBC September 30, 2013 2:30am-3:01am PDT
first, your phone calls, then your e-mail, now your selfies on facebook. i'm glad they saw mine. sacred anymore? is anything? what everyone in the office will be talking about this morning, the series finale of "breaking bad." run out of the room, hands over ears, spoiler alert. it ends. always a wise guy in the room. good morning. i'm bill karins in for the one and only bee jackman. it's monday, september 30th. one, in all likelihood the federal government will shut down tonight. two, enrollment at obama care exchanges will begin tomorrow. number three, major league baseball playoffs are here. almost. we'll explain a little later in sports. first we begin in washington where it appears a deal to keep the government running through the night is a long shot. early sunday morning the house approved a spending bill that includes a one-year delay of
obama care. it waives a controversial medical device tax. but the plan is as good as dead on arrival in the democrat-controlled senate. senate majority leader harry reid has made it clear he'll not pass any plan weakening the president's signature health care law and opted to keep the senate in recess until this afternoon at 2:00 p.m. instead of bringing them back early to take up the house bill. but at this point, most agree despite all the sound and fury, a shutdown is practically unavoidable. >> the senate will come in session. the house position, which is basically the same one they sent us the last time, is going to be rejected, again. we're going to face the prospect of the government shutting down come midnight monday night, tuesday morning. >> there's only one side that is linking obama care with a shutdown of government. >> what you're seeing play out here is the end of what senator richard burr, republican of north carolina, says was the dumbest idea he'd ever heard of. >> the president himself has
acknowledged the law's not ready. he's making exceptions for people, unions, big business, other special interests. >> we have a system where the rich and powerful, those with connections to the obama administration, they get spared some of the burdens of obama care. but those who are struggling, single moms and young people, people who are just trying to make it. >> this is the old football strategy. when you get to where you want to be in a football game, you run out the clock. >> we could have a great country album. i feel like "o brother where art thou," only it's "senate, where art thou." >> i'm glad to invite to the microphone our distinguished majority leader in the senate harry reid. i'm sorry, harry's not here today. >> joining us from washington, nbc political reporter casey hunt. good morning to you, casey. the comparisons being made to the shutdown of the mid '90s. people say this one could be even more toxic because, well,
the sides aren't talking. >> there's just not a lot going on. conversation-wise. i was at the capitol yesterday. it was eerily quiet. the halls were empty. we did get a handful of house researches who came up to ding the democrats for not coming back to deal with this yesterday. but at this point, there is just no negotiation going on between the sides. and what that reflects is this sort of evolving political conventional wisdom that it's going to take a shutdown to actually move either of these sides anywhere. harry reid has dug in, he's already said that the senate's going to come back today and reject outright what the house passed late on saturday night. and john boehner is trying to wrangle this sort of group of conservatives who resist him at basically every turn. and we're at the point where new year's an impasse. and there's acknowledgement from republican aides that if they're going to break that impasse,
members, especially in nose conservative house republicans, are going to need to feel the pain of a government shutdown. >> casey, if we actually get to the shutdown, that must mean the democrats don't mind it, the republicans don't mind it. so who has the better poker hand here? >> well, at this point, the conventional wisdom is that republicans are the ones who are going to feel the pain the most of this shutdown. that's something senator tom coburn talked to me about on friday. he said republicans are going to hold like hotcakes once the government shuts down. but i think that there is some risk for democrats. senate majority leader harry reid has sort of refused, he's drawn a line in the sand, he's refused to budge at all on this. the thinking goes that, this is a short-term spending deal, it really only funds the government for a month and a half, maybe two months, depending where they decide to set the date. if they're not going to stand and fight how are they going to handle a larger conversation like the debt ceiling? but i think that at this point there are definitely voices who
are saying, you know, democrats are going to need to be cautious too. because every shutdown is different. and at this point, trust in government is so low. frankly, congress' ratings are so low that it's not out of the realm of possibility -- >> can't get any lower. >> democrats could take some blame, yes. but they're certainly working very hard to push them as low as possible. >> we'll find out tonight at midnight. thank you so much, nbc's casey hunt. the shutdown could spur shock waves in the market today. "the washington post" reports the average impact of a shutdown that lasts ten days or long over the s&p 500 is a 2.5% dip. nothing to sneeze at. shutdowns lasting five days or 4, a 1.4% drop. to give us a preview, steve sedgwick is live in london. you heard those numbers. what are people going to do with their money today? >> fascinating. do you sell in advance of the shutdown? or do you sell during the shutdown? if advance we've had the main of those two numbers you've just
mentioned in the last six, seven sessions, we've fallen six times and fallen 2%, right bang in the middle of those two numbers. very interesting that a shutdown historically does not mean a market collapse. in fact, that big shutdown we've talked about on this show, the standoff between newt gingrich and president clinton back in the mid '90s over the prolonged period of those two shut-downs, t five-day one in november, the 21-1, the s&p managed to rally heavily during that period. we've seen the market rallying at the start of this year when we had the wrangles about the sequester as well. it is not a given these markets will fall during a shutdown. as you mentioned it does depend on the length as well. >> is it your opinion it's already built in, the market's already anticipated this? >> i think there's a great degree of that as well. don't forget there's a whole host of reasons why people are taking money off the table. the s&p has had a fantastic double-digit gain already this year. the nasdaq is up over 20%.
plus the fact there are a lot of worries on this side of the atlantic, old foes of investors like the eurozone crisis. we have worries about france, portugal, spain, greece, and especially italy again as well. so it's not just the shutdown, why people have been selling stocks. they're taking a bit of money off the table as we go into the fourth quarter because they've had fantastic gains this year already. >> all the experts like yourself, everyone's saying if we don't get an increase in the debt limit, it would be much worse on the marks than this would be. >> yeah, look. this is quite an astounding number. you only have to look at the debtclock.org and other sites to see the level of u.s. bent on a debt to gdp ratio it's not that bad, compared with the europeans and japanese on the other side of the pacific. it remains to be seen whether we're going to get this as well. the u.s. is bumping along, somewhere in the region of $16.8 trillion of absolute public debt. those are scarey numbers even if on a proportion compared with the growth rate of the u.s. it's
not as wad as some of the europeans and japanese as well. that's another key day to look forward to in october. >> that's not far away. thanks for the information. be an interesting next 24 hours of politics and with the economy. cbs's steve sedgwick live in london. critical kin ton was president the last time there was a government sut-down in 1995. his advice to president obama, it's time to call the republican party's bluff. >> there's nothing to negotiate with. he shouldn't delay the health care bill. it's the law. and we're opening the enrollment on october 1st. this is the house republicans and the tea party people saying, we don't want to negotiate with the democrats. we want to dictate over the senate, over the house democrats, over the speaker of the house of our own party, and over the president. we insist on dictating the course of the country. >> you're saying you have to stand up to that no matter the consequences? >> i do. >> speaking of the house
speaker, he's also no stranger to shutdowns. this is congressman boehner dumping out a bunch of coal during the 1995 shutdown. he called it a christmas gift from president clinton. look at the hair. the obama administration is taking the state of north carolina to court. today the justice department will file a lawsuit to block new voting rules. the new rules scale back the time period for early voting and state voters must show a valid photo i.d. critics say it will disenfranchise minority and elderly voters who are less likely to have i.d. supporters of the law, including republican governor matt mccrory, say the law is simple, to fight voter fraud. in june the supreme court struck down part of the voting rights act requiring states to get federal approval before making voting changes. the entire state of north carolina was not covered but several counties were. that prompted attorney general eric hold tore promise to fight any voting laws he considered vim that tore. the justice department has already sued to stop a voter i.d. law in texas.
in just a few hours israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will address the united nations. he's prepared to deliver a stern warning. don't be fooled by iran's sweet talk about his nuclear program. the warning comes just days after president obama and iranian president rouhani held the first conversation between the leaders of u.s. and iran in 34 years. netanyahu will meet with president obama, says iran's sanctions ar smoke screen to get sanctions eased. president rouhani wants to reach a nuclear deal in three to six months. secretary of state john kerry says that could happen even sooner. >> it's possible to have a deal sooner than that depending on how forthcoming and clear iran is prepared to be. we need to have a good deal here. a good deal means that it is absolutely accountable, failsafe in its measures to make certain this is a peaceful program. if it is a peaceful program and
we can all see that, the whole world sees that, the relationship with iran can change dramatically for the better and it can change fast. >> israel also just announced it arrested this man. ali monsieuri for spying for iran. israel says the iran native had photos of various locations including the u.s. embassy in tel aviv and has confessed. more bombshell revolutions
