7:01 am
peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. simply put, everyone is looming in on next thursday. if congress doesn't reach a bug dell by then, federal agencies close. it is also the first day when uninsured americans can sign up for the president's health care law. with the clock ticking, here is where things stand. it's getting down to the wire. lawmakers have barely 100 hours to agree how to keep the government funded or shut it down tuesday. republicans remain deeply divided. senator cruz's 100 hour talk-a-thon, quickly dismissed by john mccain, which insisted it is not worth shutting the government down over opposition to obamacare. >> but we not as hard as we could in a fair honest manner and we lost. >> reporter: in northern virginia, people are being more
7:02 am
contemplative about it. people will say they will think before they boy a volvo. >> reporter: a shutdown could mean furloughs, tense of thousands of workers have to settle for ious instead of paychecks. the national museums and even the national zoo all closed. bad news for tourist, also for hotel, restaurants and travel companies that serve them. if you are headed overseas, you better already have your passport. those applications will stall. as for the president's health care law the white house has plenty of explaining to do. three out of four americans told nbc news they don't understand the law. beginning tuesday, october 1st, anyone who doesn't have insurance can sign up on an online marketplace called an exchange. >> people will shop an compare and make the decision that's best for them and their family. >> reporter: they offer four levels of coverage, from bronze to platinum.
7:03 am
a fam ply in texas it would pay $28 after a tax credit. the president will head to maryland to push the uninsured to sign up. >> that first day is october 1st. it's really a stalemate. eighth mess. it would likely by shifting the fight. another looming battle next month over the nation's br rowing limit. >> peter alexander, thanks, so much. >>let turn to david gregory, moderator of "meet the press." i don't know if you heard this before, we are days away from a government shutdown. lawmakers always seem to avoid it? >>. >> washington seems to engage in
7:04 am
the same destructive behavior every couple years. most of the heat is on this from the public. i thil city it's possible you could have a shutdown for couple day, two, three, days, depending on when the senate vote on their version of this bill t. house has to make a decision, do they want to have another fight over obamacare over defunding this or shift the fight as peter said over to a separate matterst. that whether or not they will raise the debt ceiling. there that may try to delay the obamacare. >> me ask you about that the raeshry says we will raise the debt limit s. that a real crisis point? >> i think it's a crisis point we know the economic shock the world and certainly the u.s. economy would feel if they were to take that step. that's why nobody messes with this and they raise the ceiling.
7:05 am
most americans don't support doing that. the president says he wouldn't even talk about any negotiation over raising the debt ceiling because this congress paying, it feels like they've already appropriatated. here again, house republican, the leadership think it's a more palatable fight. can we delay it? why not delay more of it? my big question, what does that get you in the end? what's the real end game here? the law is still the law. it's been upheld by the supreme court. it's going to have its effect positive and negative as we move forward over the next few years. >> david gregory, much more on "meet the press." we will be focusing a lot more on this new health care laws, it's increase on you across the platform of nbc news. >> we certainly will be. we also have details on last week's shooting at the naval yard in washington, d.c. under surveillance has now emerged showing the gunman inside the facility.

7:17 am
many have you been to sleep since winning and retaining the america's cup? >> yeah, i didn't think so. so we'll tread lightly here him talk to me, words like epic, impossible, historic are being used to describe this victory, how do you guys describe it? skipper. >> look, it was one hell of a comeback. this is one hell of a time. we have worked for a lot of years now. we are fighting a lot of adversity in the past. i feel it prepared us for this. man, we knew it was going to be a fight on the water. we never knew it was going to be these epic proportions. one heck of a comeback from the guys. >> you staked every race for eight straight races. all the articles i read say changes were made to this boat after i think about the 8th or 9th race. in layman's terms, because we won't understand the technicalities. in layman's terms, what did you change to make that boat so much
7:18 am
faster? >> well, it's like formula one. you make small changes. it's all about developing the boat. i think psychologically this team the people involved in this team, seem to do better when they're at that super higher situation at match point when they're facing the barrel of the gun, we just refuse to die. we just refuse to go away. >> we look at the boat, jimmy the rest of you guys, it is not the boat i watched in newport, 1983. most people don't recognize this, have we crossed the line? is there no going back to those older boats? >> well, yeah, it's the flintstone generation. this isn't your grandfather's america's cup. this is like the x games on water. man, these boats are very, very physical. a lot of risk. this is reward. standing on san francisco bay does not get any better than that. >> when it comes down to it, you did the nearly impossible.
7:19 am
guys, once again from all of us, congratulations, well done. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> cool. >> so exciting. we just had one question. how did they get the giant american flag. >> we had to do it. >> just let it hang there. >> speaking of technology. >> mcmann called. >> i know, this is going down with me today. i thought i'd help you out, savannah. >> they keep moving the 1st down line on the football field. >> it's an amazing sport. >> i am amazed by that. >> it is throwback thursday. we want to check in with carson. good morning to you. >> that wasn't real? >> don't spoil it for me. congratulations to the guys. good morning, it is throwback thursday. we were inspired by the story this week that volkswagon is going to discontinue the production of that classic vw van. this is the actual scoopy doo

statements. they said they were not interested in commenting. shelly, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i want to start, i i don't want to dwell with it. i want to start with that and in few weeks ago. you said he had his hand on a gun, he was threatening you. you said he was going to shoot you when you called 911, that he continually had his hand on that gun. as you know, police say they never confiscated a gun. they never even laid eyes on a gun. do you stand by your story completely? >> absolutely. i absolutely stand by my story. >> you saw a gun, you saw him place his hand on a gun? you had visual contact or confirmation he had a gun and was threatening you with it. >> i did not see a gun, but i saw. i know my husband. i saw him in a stance and a look in his eyes that i have never seen before. his shirt was halfway unbuttoned and he was putting nice hand in his shirt and saying please step closer, pleads step closer, so i
7:33 am
think that logically i assumed he had a gun on him. >> you also said to that 911 operator, i don't know what he's capable of. and those words struck me, shelly. i don't know what he's capable of. they're inflammatorytory words considering your husband was just acquitted on murder charges were were they used intentionally to raise questions? to raise doubts about not only his behavior during this altercation but perhaps his behavior on the night that trayvon martin was shot? >> no, they weren't intentional. i really don't know what he is capable of. this person that i am married to that i'm divorcing, i've kind of realized now that i don't know him and i really don't know what he is capable o. i saw a look in his eyes that i have never seen before that day. >> few don't know what he is capable of. you say he threatened you with a gun. he punched your father in the nose, why dun press charges? >> in hooivendsight, i should
7:34 am
have, i really regret that. but i'm on probation and the officers made it very clear that day that if i press charges, we were all going to go to jail and i would have been the only one to stay there. >> you mentioned you were on probation. you are going through divorce, my experience over the years tells me that when emotion run high, there are three stories, there is his story, her story and the truth which is somewhere in the middle. but you also pled guilty to perjury charges, based on something you said in a bail hearing for george zimmerman. it was clearly untrue. do you have credibility issues as you sit here this morning? >> i think i do have credibility issues and i own that. and i'm a grown woman and i made a mistake and i i don't know e own that. but the truth is the truth and i want to always forever more tell the truth. that's why i'm here. >> you stood by him through this entire trial. i cried when he was acquitted. i would imagine those were tears
7:35 am
of joy. >> they were. >> a short time later you filed for divorce. are you telling me he's changed that dramatically since the trial that forced you to do that? >> yes, we have. >> in what way? >> he just kind of treated me like i was disposable. >> you mean after standing by him? >> yes, after standing by him. he kind of left and i guess kind of went on a victory tour without me and i thought that i was living a life with him and that we were going to kind of rebuild after all of this and he had other plans for me. >> through owl after this, with all you are now going through, i mean, with the divorce and this altercation, has it changed your perspective at all on what he's told you what happened the night that trayvon martin was shot and killed? do you still believe the story that we have all heard from him? >> i'm conflicted on that.
7:36 am
i believe the evidence, but this revelation in my life has really helped me to take the minders off and start to see things. >> let me make sure i understand. so you now doubt his innocence, at least the fact that he was acting on self-defense on the notice that trayvon martin was killed? >> i think anyone would doubt that innocence because i don't know the person that i have been married to. >> that's a dramatic change. i mean, you didn't seem to doubt his innocence during the entire trial. you stood right there by his side. you went into hiding with him. you faced death threats with him. you lied under oath for him. and now you are saying you have doubts? >> i have doubts. but i also believe the evidence. >> one of the jurors in this case, i think it was juror '0329 said george zimmerman got away from murder but you can't get away from god. in your opinion, did the justice system work here?
7:37 am
>> i think so. i respect the jury's decision. they saw more evidence than i've seen. >> and can you look me in the eye and tell me that you don't believe your husband profiled trayvon martin? >> yes, he did not profile trayvon martin. >> so had trayvon martin been white, you think the night would have ended in the same tragic fashion? >> yes, i do. >> where do you do from here, shelly? >> focusing on myself. i lost 40 pounds since the trial. really taking care of myself, moving forward with my life. >> have you been able to file papers for the divorce? >> the zwors filed, we have not served. >> do you know where he is? >> no. >> you have had no altercation since that incident? >> yes. >> we will keep that it way? >> yes, we will. >> shelly, thanks. thank you very much as well. let's get a check of the weather now from al.
