7:35 am
as our resident democrat here on our little panel what do you thing about the plan will it have some weight to it? meat to it and just staying power i guess is most important. >> well, i don't know that this bill whatever conventional wisdom is it won't pass the senate tonight. i think the country needs a bill that will build the infrastructure back in this country. everybody agrees that it is crumbling and we need -- but to do a jobs bill, whether it be this one or not, a great many many hundred thousand or more private sector jobs. rebuilding infrastructure and secondly after you spend the money you have something to show for it. that is an investment in our infrastructure. one thing about history it is hard to make any money where there is no infrastructure you don't see people making money where there is no water, sewer,
7:36 am
roads, bridges airports, river ports and so, i hope that congress can -- and the white house can do something, the jobs bill primarily infrastructure related. >> so much attention give to the conclusion of a millionaires tax or some type of tax on wealthier americans does this have any chance of passing with any of that? >> well, it won't deny in the senate according to everything i hear. what i think people need to understand, hopefully realize, is that we are in a structural deficit situation not a situational deficit. if we had full employment we still would have a deficit, because we have a rev new base that is -- revenue base that is insufficient to do what we need to do on infrastructure and government investment there has
7:37 am
to be something done about entitlement reform when you have the left or right saying we will give entitlement reform here and won't give them taxes here it makes the country unable in my judgment, to come to an american solution that will get us out of this structural debt. what is your thought? >> i would agree with. what you will see tonight is the beginning of a process we saw this earlier this year when we went through the debt ceiling debate, these are the starting point at which someone throws something on the table and a debate begins that is what you will see start happening in terms of legislative process there has been a lot of conversation and debate but not an actual piece of legislation to start fighting over i think that is what you will see tonight so it won't pass tonight but it will give both sides a starting point to then put together other proposals that will be debated. >> let's talk about something
7:38 am
else, this time another gop debate focuses solely on the economy herman cain has been getting a lot of support he is up to the second in a lot of polls. i think the con trough jersey down in texas has given the -- controversy down in texas has given the controversy. >> you shouldn't count him out when you think about where president obama was in 2007 it shows the american people are looking for someone that is different someone not from washington, they are really taking a hard look at herman cain and someone real plain spoken but also real passionate and really smart on the issues i wouldn't turn him out, his problem is that he doesn't quite have the infrastructure from a campaign perspective, and the funding to sustain this, unless he really gets an influx of money here soon and his polling and all of what has been going on in the straw poll will help him with that i
7:39 am
wouldn't count him out from a traditional campaign perspective he doesn't quite have infrastructure he would need to keep this going all the way until january. democrats like to see more and more republicans not able to get this narrowed down to one candidate. >> i think it is a healthy exercise in our democracy for all of the various impulses, to be voiced in one way or another. i think that he probably will be some of his statements will be more scrutinized now that he has risen to this. some of the things he has said in the past that didn't get maybe so much attention will get more attention now, so i think he has to be careful on some of his statements. well, let me ask you this
7:40 am
karen our time is running out quickly, but tonight with the focus on the economy, if not a particular person to watch, now that we are focused on economy specifically everything is more important as far as what folks are saying. >> i think it is a situation candidates will enjoy i think a lot of republican candidates have been wanting to focus on the economy feeling that is a real weakness with the president gives them from a campaign perspective a chance to hone in on the message on the economy i think they will be real excited about that chance and yeah, i think it is a pretty important debate for the candidates to show what their ideas would be and plans would be, if they were to become the nominee. >> final word here because the president also changing his tune when it comes to the economy has he realized now, we are a year out now we need to make sure we focus on what we are doing to try to get rereelected. i think what he probably
7:41 am
trying to do is draw a vision for the future and try to contrast what he wants to do with what whoever the republican nominee happens to be. but again our political system, if one reads standard & poors down grade of the debt, really carefully, a lot of what they said had to do with broken political process in this country not just the debt itself and again, we have to get some, as karen said we now have something on the table hopefully this will start an adult conversation about how we, as americans, not democrats or republicans but we as americans can solve this problem. >> now we just have to get congress to act as adults. karen john we appreciate your time. 7:41 a.m., 62 degrees on this tuesday morning coming up,

8:02 am
there, this afternoon but definitely late tonight rain moves in, look for a high of 73 degrees, not bad, although that is 10 degrees cooler than yesterday ended up being. more details on all of this coming up in just a little bit. >> thank you. let's check with julie with a look at traffic this tuesday hi. all right you guys still busy on the roads, outer loop of the belt way that is where we had the crash baltimore washington parkway, tieing up the right lane big delays for that, route 4, pennsylvania avenue, southeast washington headed inbound accident activity, southern avenue, suit land road, rescue units responding to that location. other side of town, 270, rockville headed out toward the lane divide no incidents to report, heavy and slow traffic, after randall road, still cleaning that up, expect delays ittc work zone. delays out of manassas. more slow traffic leaving fair
8:03 am
oaks. that is a check of your fox 5 on time traffic. new this morning, police say a passenger stabbed a metro bus driver in wheaton this began midnight when someone on the bus reported a suspect, a 52-year-old man was exposing himself the bus driver told him to stop the bus driver had a female acquaintance on the bus and asked her to keep an eye on the suspect as the bus approached the wheaton metro station the suspect began arguing with the woman and bus driver the altercation continued outside the bus the suspect hit the woman the bus driver tried to intervene and was stabbed. the suspect was taken into custody. police in prince georges county investigating the murder of a 17-year-old. the teen was shot outside an apartment building iverson street hill crest heights.
8:04 am
a brief scare if the skies, two f-16 fighter jets intercepted a small civilian plane after it traveled into restricted air space. this happened 8:30 p.m. last night it landed at bwi after being escorted out of the area. local awe hourties were on -- authorities were on hand to meet the pilot. u.s. park police expected to officially sign off on a permit extension, stacy cohen live, with details on the deal and more and protestor arrests in boston. >> reporter: there is a lot to talk about the first thing you need to know if you are in or working around freedom plaza this is a scene you are going to need to get used to here. the protestors are here to stay. there was a meeting apparently last night with park police they came to a verbal agreement they would be allowed to stay here, for up to four more months now i must mention the park service has not drawn up an official permit yet they are the ones that would provide
8:05 am
that permit we understand that an agreement has been reached and both sides appear to be satisfied. i heard last night, that law enforcement is telling us we can stay for another four months. there is a lot of enthusiasm for the message. i think they have been reacting splendidly this has been a great cooperation they understand there is a lot of issues in this country that need to be addressed and haven't been addressed. interesting thing about protesting in this town we have it almost all the time look at boston that is when occupy boston protestors apparently moved out of a designated area into an area against the wishes of law enforcement there was a clash 100 people arrested that happened 1:30 a.m. the charge there was trespassing, back here in freedom plaza everything seems calm everyone is getting up and moving and eating i notice the cloud speakers just turned on. there are talks about various marchs that may happen later
8:06 am
today but at this point we better get used to them they are here to stay. stacy thank you protestors that sparked the anti wall street and anti greed movement will be allowed to stay in a lower manhattan park. mayor bloomberg announced occupy wall street can be there indefinitely as long as they obey the law. police department said they spent some $2 million mostly in overtime to patrol the protest area in recent weeks. no end in sight for the nba lock out league cancelled the first two weeks of the regular season more could come soon that doesn't bode well for workers in and around the stadium. sarah simmons is live at verizon center with more. good morning. >> good morning alison. verizon center is quiet as it would be this time of day but the first week of november, it is like this as well. the season was set to begin, november 1st, commissioner david stern says there is no agreement inside they met for several hours but have not gotten close to a deal
8:07 am
whatsoever. sticking to his deadline. stern wiped out the first two weeks exactly 100 games now the cancellations mark the nbas first work stoppage since the 98/99 season reduced to 50 games. both sides are still very far apart on a new labor deal the salary cap is a big sticking point. union president derek fisher stressed this was a lock out not a strike and it was a owners decision not to play basketball. >> i think it is fair to say we established the position of the parties, with complete certainty where we stood and we remain really very very far apart on virtually all issues. this is a big blow obviously to our fans most importantly, you know, they don't have a voice in this fight so far but we hear them loud and clearly, they want basketball we want to play
8:08 am
basketball. now, the two sides are expected to remain in close contact but right now there are no talks that have been scheduled so, these 100 cancelled games, what they are looking at is an $83 million in lost ticket sales from this a lot of money at stake here but season ticket holders from what we understand they will receive a refund, plus interest as well. that is the latest here at verizon center, alison back to you. more drivers now coming forward claiming they were arrested in the district for driving with expired tags, we are not talking about ticketed or fined we are talking arrests and sent to jail joining us john town send from triple-a mid-atlantic good to see you. >> good morning. >> we will say in full disclosure, when we started talking about this story i did look at my tag because it is easy to forget something like this. it is a matter of forgetfulness, procrastination, but you shouldn't be thrown in
8:09 am
jail for this. in no other jurisdiction in the country we can find we have looked high and low, we cannot find another jurisdiction that does this except washington dc. in philadelphia if your tags are expired they will tow the car and impound it, and they will send you walking but they will not throw you in jail. in no jurisdiction unless there are other extenuating circumstances would you be arrested for this it is dray cognac, and bizarre and almost like going back into the dark ages this is the nations capitol. >> we talked with police about it they says the prohibited to operate a motor vehicle unregistered this is a crime that can result in arrest and traffic citation officially driving without valid registration is punishable up to a fine of $1,000.30 days in prison it is on the books we are not saying it is not. >> but the difference is if you
8:10 am
are convicted that normally happens if the court finds you were guilty of that but police officers are arrests people on the spot, that would not happen to you in washington -- sorry would not happen to you in maryland, would not happen to you in virginia, it would not happen to you in any other state. in mid-atlantic region we surveyed police officers in delaware they thing this is bizarre not something motorists find strange but even a u.s. senator has to ask the mayor to change this policy he says there is no justification for this you can't justify yes, it is on the books it is also on the books in all 50 states no one arrests someone for it unless they have drugs in the car. we are seeing mothers arrested with children in their car an agregious situation where a mother was arrested she was on her way to school to pick up her child had another child, a smaller child, 3-year-old in
8:11 am
the backseat and when she said what do i do with my kid since you are arresting me the officer said we will put the kids in social services until you get out of jail we had a military officer, naval officer on his way to afghanistan arrested now he has it on his record and he is afraid it may hamper his ability to get a security clearness clearance because he has to -- clearance because he has to say i have been arrested once you are arrested it takes 6 to 7 months to purge this from your legal record there is no justification of it. not the mention the trauma in the one case with the mother with the child in the car this will stay on your psyche. >> this is the curious thing most of the people, will not reveal their names publicly they are so embarrassed and shame faced by this. we have a journalist in washington dc, who was arrested after arriving in town to work at one of the media outlets,
8:12 am
came from another state, forgot about the registration from back home, was arrested and the night he was thrown in jail he was in a cell with four other drivers from the district who also had been arrested we think in some cases there are as many as two or three arrests like this every day. >> we are going to stay on this and see what happens really not against the law to do this or not outside the bounds of it but we will watch it. >> it is a matter how you interpret the law. john towns end with triple- a mid-atlantic. >> thank you. republican presidential hopefuls will debate again tonight and political officers will look at the debate the focus is on the economy. >> postal service looking at ways to save money talking a lot about eliminating saturday delivery now looking at ditching federal employees health benefits is it worth it? will it save money more on this
8:13 am

8:19 am
avenue, suit land road that should now be out of the roadway trouble now southbound, 270, working your way south of 78, hov lane expect delays, 370 headed south and eastbound 66 had its share of problems the latest occurred on the ramp to the inner loop that is why it is still wall to wall slow, leaving ma that sis in toward -- manassas in towards the belt way. well, would have should have could have. tim pollenty dropped out in august after finishing third in the iowa gop straw poll he would have stayed in the race quote if i would have known then what i know now. republican presidential candidates are venturing into a new world for some of them. they will debate tonight and will no doubt take e lek triaim on the front runner well -- elective front runner well
8:20 am
known in those parts, carl cameron tells us what kind of criticism mitt romney is facing. >> reporter: rick perry has begun what will be a steadily escalating barrage of attacks on mitt romney. the latest is a 60 second ready for tv video he looks in the mirror and sees president obama, the second half bashes romney's credibility. romney flip flopped on too many issues. >> we will end up with a nation taking a mandate approach. there are a lot of reasons not to elect me. >> reporter: team romney calls it a desperate, dishonest attempt to deflect attention from perry's in state tuition policy for illegal immigrants. >> romney's mormon faith emerged as an issue friday. they consider themselves christians but a texas
8:21 am
evangelical pastor who said mormonism, islam, buddhism, and indyism, endorsed and introduced perry last week he said mormonism is a cult and not christian something he said when romney ran last time. >> mormonism is not historical christianity it is a theological cult i stand by those comments. >> jeffers insists he spoke out on his own. the pastor defends his views citing a year old survey of 1,000 protestant pastors. three out of four agreed with the position, mormonism is not christianity they are not christian this is no new news. a poll of voters say 58% of republicans are comfortable with a mormon president as are
8:22 am
64% of independents. without mentioning specific attacks on his face, he spoke to hate rhetoric. hate has never softened a single heart or changed a single mind. blessings of faith carry civil debate. bent under the weight of crushes losses postal service may petition congress to get out of a federal health program and establish its own health system. joining us now, ed o'keefe good to see you. >> good to see you. >> man, we have heard so much from the postal service how to trim multibillions ovoidal lars they need to save -- of dollars they need to save. the saturday delivery was the first thing. >> this might save them even more money they spent $7 billion a year on health care, retirement costs all sorts of labor costs their argument is if we can get out of the
8:23 am
federal employee health benefits program they could probably stave more money because they would be providing maybe one or two services to postal workers as opposed to throwing them into a system with hundreds of options for workers all over the country. most of those workers are members of blue cross blue shield because of that, that does keep overhead costs pretty low. postal service says we can get lower overhead costs, save ourselves more money and hopefully save the postal service more money overall. >> what does it do to everybody else. >> well, you would be removing the largest contributor essentially to it, they said you know, well, if you do remove that largest contributor what would that do for everyone else, force premium increases on all other federal workers, it probably would increase them for postal workers going into their system. the white house says look it is interesting we want to study this more and when people say that in washington it could be a few more years.
8:24 am
>> we will put it on a shelf for awhile. who would have the final say doing something like that does congress have to approve this move. >> they would have to vote on allowing them to get out and i don't anticipate that happening for awhile because they will have to sit there and run the numbers and figure out what this means overall for cuts not only again to the postal workers but federal workers again everyone is dealing with health care costs 80% of postal service costs are tied to labor, you can cancel saturday mail, using closed post offices and processing facilities and still have a huge cost associated with labor. >> what do you do to try to cut down on money disappearing billions and billions of dollars. >> they have eliminated hundreds of thousands of jobs through attrition they are hoping the get the okay from congress to layoff they want to close thousands of post offices a few hundred processing offices, some in maryland, and
8:25 am
pennsylvania to consolidate that and potentially lengthen the amount of time it takes to get mail to you but they will save a few billion that way and want to eventually provide other services, maybe renewing your drivers license, applying for a passport or banking. what about the actual mail itself, in my nonscientific research seems like the vast majority of people are mailing packages, and nothing else will we see changes in the mail itself first class mail is that gone. >> post master general believes eventually they will deliver just 20 billion pieces of mail a year 11% of what they delivered last year. >> wow. >> big declines he compares them to kodak and fuji film companies, no one uses film any more we may get to a point no one is using the postal service any more and become irrelevant. not what a lot of workers
8:26 am
want to hear. ed o'keefe thanks good to see you. 8:25 a.m. on tuesday morning it hasn't even been dedicated yet and already changes could come to the martin luther king junior memorial on the national mall. we will check out other stories making headlines next. >> it may feel a little like spring but smells like fall especially at webers cider mill farm we are live at maryland's oldest cider mill later on fox 5 morning news, 63 degrees how about them apples o [ beep ]

8:34 am
number. >> if you are not familiar with pd can you tell us of the symptoms how we should check for what symptoms are and early diagnosis. >> sure it varies, the symptoms can be something as simple as a tremor, it can be a mask of the face, a softened voice, a problem with balance, there are more but it is important to have early diagnosis because getting medication early, getting into a program of support, and getting exercise, is critical, to getting a longer, better life. >> and i want to talk more about that exercise in which you are doing sunday, but please talk to me about who you should see because it sounds like one of those illnesses that might be misdiagnosed you go to one doctor we are not sure who needs to be looking at a person who might have some of these symptoms. >> national parkinson
8:35 am
foundation and local chapters rely heavily on doctors who are neurologists but movement disorder specialists, people trained and focused on parkinson's disease they have a great capability to understand and determine the disease from looking at a patient's symptoms. >> now when we come out on sunday, is there room to register? >> we will take anybody with wants to show up we think we will have 1500 to 2,000. >> it is a 2.5 miles, walk around the park tell us what we are going to do at the park. >> the walk will be starting around the mezzanine level of the park we will head out and go down to the navy yard walking on the water front head down to a pt boat, turn around and come back it will be an incredible celebration a wonderful day. and there will be as i understand it areng tents or exercises that might be beneficial for someone with
