tv Way Too Early MSNBC October 18, 2013 5:30am-6:00am EDT
to deal with the brutal roll out of healthcare.gov. >> movies are dramatic and sus spenceful. in real life, we have two murderers who walked out of prison and let the guards escort them. the best hitter in the american league playoffs, mike napoli. highlights from another tense night in baseball. this is "way too early." >> not running well at all. a tough time turning going around the third -- ♪ morning folks. it's friday. it is october the 18th. we have pictures today of the "duck dynasty" guys beard. we'll have that later with the classic colbert. we want to begin in washington, d.c., where the shutdown is over, but the divisions that spark the stand off remain. yesterday, president obama spoke about the crisis that put the
united states on the brink of default. >> there are no winners here. these last few weeks have inflicted completely unnecessary damage on our economy. probably nothing has done more damage to america's credibility in the world. our standing with other countries than the spectacle we have seen these past several weeks. you don't like a particular policy or a particular president? then argue for your position. go out there and win an election. push to change it. don't break it. don't break what our pred assessors spent two centuries building. >> the president shifted his attention back to passing a budget, immigration reform and a farm bill. on the republican side, walking away from the shutdown with little to show for it.
senator ted cruz still wants to dismantle obama care. >> i would do anything and i will continue to do anything i can to stop the train wreck that is obama care. our focus should not be on d.c. politics, it should be on people getting hurt. >> this is seen as the ted cruz shutdown. you wanted any individual who triggered the crisis. >> i said we shouldn't have a shutdown. i don't want a shutdown. i repeatedly voted to open the government. >> we are not going to fund the government for six weeks unless we can defund obama care. >> there never would have been a shut down if they hadn't said we will not compromise or negotiate. >> mitch mcconnell replaying it over the same issues, not an option. mcconnell said, quote, one of my favorite sayings is there's no education in the second kick of the mule.
the first kick in 1995, the second one in the last 16 days. a government shutdown is off the table. we are not going to do it. mcconnell is a handful of republican senators facing a tea party challenger next year. lindsey graham, lamar alexander and in the house, 14 seats that are up for grabs next year are now leaning democrat because of the damage done to the gop. congressman from toss up to left leaning states are in the most danger. the report says republicans actions have energized fund raising and recruiting efforts and handed democrats an effective message, end quote. with the shutdown, the folks in washington will likely fall on the government's health care website. judging by the headlines, it's not good news for the administration. three weeks after launching, there are still stories of error messages, long wait times and as you can imagine, frustration.
as tom costello reports, cost overruns designing the site have been massive. cgi federal. their business with the u.s. government grew during the bush administration. on october 4, 2011, it was awarded a $55.7 million contract for computer systems design services to build the website with a ceiling price tag of $94 million. by may of this year, the contract shows cgi spent $196 million. the ceiling price tag soared to $292 million. >> the marketplace is generating flawed data for the insurance companies. everything from duplicate enrollments and missing fields to eligibility and spouses reported to children. the information isn't getting transmitted correctly.
usa today report says the site was built on 10-year-old technology that will need constant fixes and updates over the course of the next six months. cannot make this up. johnson has been a mainstay of the obama administration crafting some of the most sensitive and controversial polici policies, detaining terror sus spekts and the use of drones. he began as a federal prosecutor in the state of new york and served as a legal adviser during the president's 2008 campaign. he was known as a leading advocate to end don't ask don't tell. if confirmed, he would replace outgoing secretary janet napolitano who left to head the university of california education system. we have disturbing video released showing the panic as gunmen stormed the kenyan mall last month.
take a look. shoppers will absolutely run for their lives, duck for cover, as armed terrorists attack. portions of the video are too graphic to show. there's footage of the militants exchanging gunfire with security. al shabaab, a terror group based in somalia took responsibility for the attack that left 72 people dead. >> dick cheney waged a long battle against heart disease. now we know more about his condition. writing in his new book, "heart," he reveals he was so close to death, he said good-bye to his family before undergoing heart surgery. he writes, if this is dying, i remember thinking it's not all that bad. i believed i was approaching the end of my days. it didn't frighten me. i was pain free and as peace and led a remarkable life. a blood test showed he was at risk of a deadly heart attack as
he managed response to 9/11. he put off taking a new blood test until the following morning. nbc news obtained a copy in advance. at this hour, there is a manhunt under way for two convicted killers accidentally released. that's right, accidentally released from a florida prison even though they received life sentenc sentences. one walked out on tuesday, walker, on the right was released september 27th. they believed bogus court documents were legit. >> the department of corrections followed every protocol we have in place. they were released based on the court orders we received. the orders were later determined to be fraudulent. they were modified and they had passed through several systems
and so we are in the process of trying to apprehend these guys and put them back where they belong. >> the documents have the forged signature of judge perry. he presided over the casey anthony trial. the documents had identical letterheads, county seals and formatting to make them appear legitimate. an air marshal has been charged with using his cell phone to take pictures of female passengers, skirts. he was on duty at the airport in nashville when he was removed from the plane. he is no longer on active duty and in the process of being suspended or fired. let's go to business. yesterday, the s&p closed at a new all-time high. the dow finished lower. the reason? big blue. ibm disappointed with revenue
numbers weaker than expected. it dropped more than 6%. for more, let's go to jeff, live in london. good morning. >> good morning, to you brian. there's a problem here. investors feel as though they have been flying blind somewhat on the u.s. economy. now we have the shutdown resolve temporarily, at least. we will start to get some economic data through. we are looking for the jobs number for september to come through. we will get that next tuesday and then subsequently, we'll get a week's delay on the october jobs number. this matters because clearly, the markets are sensitive to improvements in the u.s. economy of what this means for the tapering debate. ben bernanke is focused on improvement for jobs for movement on the interest rate. so, let's move you along. i want to talk about sac capital. we know the multibillionaire has
been engaged in a battle with regulators for the last seven years here. this is over a criminal insider training probe. it looks like they are getting closer to a settlement here. the possibility of at least some partial admittance of liability and access of $1 billion in fines. that's the talk of the moment as they inch closer to a resolution. >> it doesn't necessarily reach every day americans. a lot of americans bank with bank of america. they have a new checking account with wrinkles. give us details on that. >> this is the story from the wall street journal. they have spoken with people close to the bank. they are saying there's a possibility of a new checking account that will not let you go overdrawn. it's not clear whether there will be financial penalty if you try to do that. it sits in line with previous policy at this bank where they try to introduce products. i think they had a debit card in
2011. the idea was they were meant to prevent you from moving into overdrawn territory. it looks like bla wants to tighten up on lending practices toward those maybe who are not managing their accounts appropriately, brian. >> i know you handle yours appropriately. have a good weekend. let's move to twitter. a new sleep study explains why it's so important. sleep allows our brains to get rid of gunk. that was the term uses, gunk, that builds up while we are awake. how dirty is your brain? tweet your best and most creative answers two #waytootired. >> we decided against a caption contest today. if we had, we would have used this one.
look at joe biden as they opened up post shutdown, handing out muffins. for awhile, people were hesitant to go get them. then he was worried he was going to run out. good muffins from the v.p. would have been good. the tigers flashing some leather in detroit. highlights next. duck dynasty pb. that would be prebeard. the picture you have to see to believe. a check on weather when we come back. the commandos flown in earlier unknown to the hijackers at 2:00 in the morning, black clothing, they blew open the
doors of the plane and stormed in. three of the four terrorists were killed. one seriously wounded.
