the debt ceiling where the u.s. begins to run out of money to pay its bills. this morning, all eyes were on the leaders of the senate to work out an additional deal. we pretty much know the parameters of this plan. the plan to fund the government and until february. this cups after an absolutely wild day on capitol hill when house speaker john boehner tried to seize control of this debate only to have it blow up in his face thanks to opposition from inside his own caulk cause. >> this morning, even if a deal can be reached it might not be in time to avert some serious prepare cushions. in fact, some of those repercussions have hit already. our cnn correspondent jim acosta begins our coverage. >> reporter: time is running out. the debt ceiling is in sight and the last best hope of avoiding a potential default once again rests with senate leaders harry
reid and mitch mcconnell. we're back to working on a last minute deal. >> john boehner will essentially have to pass the bill between senators mcconnell and reid. >> reporter: president obama called for quick action. >> we don't have a lot of time, so what i'm suggesting to the congressional leaders is, let's not do any posturing. let's not try to save face. >> reporter: the president appeared to put the blame on house speaker's john boehner's inability to corral tea party-backed republicans. >> there have been situation where is we have agreements and he goes back and he can't control his caucus. >> reporter: that caucus is once again up in arms despite bainer's tough talks. >> i've made clear for months and month, that the idea of default is wrong. >> reporter: the speaker failed to convince house conservatives to line up between republican proposals to lift the debt ceiling and the shutdown. it didn't matter anyway, as reid
said the plans were dead on arrival. >> they're attempting to torpedo the senate's bipartisan progress with a bill that can't pass the senate. >> reporter: that portrait was all the fitch ratings needed to see. fitch issued a warning that would downgrade the nation's credit rating, a potential of what standard & poor's did after the last debate of 2011. although fitch said it could ring soon, some house conservatives were brushing off talks of dire consequences. >> october 17th is not the drop dead date. there are no payments due for a couple weeks. >> the latest falk is we could see a vote as early as today. first in the house and then in the senate later in the week. the house said they will have to start picking and choosing which
bills to pay. let's bring in mary belle aber to find out. >> october 17th, though, is the day that treasury secretary jack lew has said that the u.s. will run out of money to pay all its debts until the borrowing limit is raised. it's estimated that the u.s. will have $30 billion on hand plus the money coming in from tax receipts. the 17th isn't that drop said date, zoraida as far as the default goes. whatever the case is read of the default has been unsettling investors and driving rates on the shortest direction of the u.s. treasure tore just in case there's disruption on the treasury's ability to the pay out on the bonds. let's walk through the dates. october 17th, coming up. the plan runs out of shore-term funding moves.
and then october 22nd, the cbo estimates government exhausts reserves and starts missing payments. this is where it gets very critical. october 23rd, $12 billion in social security payments are scheduled. october 31st, cbo estimates a cash balance of $6 billion interest, payment that is due. and november 1st, $55 billion in medicare, social security and military payments. those are all scheduled. so that's the scary time that we're all the waying for here. >> talk to you about fitch. this credit agency just gave a pretty stern warn to get united states here. we've been sort of through this before, where the u.s. was literally downgraded we at risk again. >> okay. let's talk about that, credit rating fitch put the u.s., we'll call it, on notice. we walked down this road before. the american government could get a downgrade in its aaa credit rating.
that's if the debt ceiling crisis is not resolved. analysts say they believe it will be over soon. the potential over this debt increase could increase the risk of default. you mentioned, standard downgraded it to aa, plus in 2011, fitch still has the u.s. in aaa right now. let's remember the economy is in a fragile state. we're not looking at a full housing recovery. we still have unemployment high. and the housing market just trying to come around the bend. the scary part is these interest rates that could go up. think about banks. not being able to loan to banks. they're not going to loan to another bank. what does that mean to you and i? if a bank won't loan to another bank, they won't loan to you and i right? >> what are the markets saying? you mentioned they're really scared by november 1st.
we're not there yet. >> investors around the world, though, actually seem optimistic. i'm looking at asian markets. not a lost volatility there. actually, the nikkei was up. futures, though, are actually higher. >> that's because harry reid and mitch mcconnell are saying they're going to sit down and come up with something this morning. there is no extra time to spare now. they got to get it done before the rest of the world and the financial situation crumbles. >> when you talk about that downgrade that warning, when did that happen? at what point do they say they're actually going to downgrade? >> that's what we don't know. we are all watching with bated breath this deal. >> they could do it at anytime. >> i wonder about the deadlines is my question. you have the october 17th deadline and then they throw on
the november 1st deadline. >> if you read between the lines of what fitch is saying, no matter what you do, we're disgusted with the u.s. already. >> that's right. >> kind of across the country, other country, also feeling exactly the same way. it's like how dare you do this to your own economy when it affects us as well. >> exactly, especially when you talk about china and russia with so much debt. we like to start on a positive note. >> marybel is going to be back to talk about money talk in the world beyond this. one group of lawmakers has had a measure of success working together to end partisan gridlock. we're talking about female senators. cnn's athena jones has more on the special role they're playing this time. >> reporter: will the women of the senate save the day? well, they've certainly been trying. a plan by senator susan collins
formed a basis of the key to reopening the government and avoid a default on u.s. debt. while that prospect may not be uncertain, senate women are still front and center. collins' worked with a bipartisan group of senators, men and women, to put her plan together but women were at the forefront, and she says that's know coincidence. >> so the women of the senate span the ideological spectrum, we certainly don't think alike. we do share in the interest and problem solving and we tend to be more collaborative in our approach thanle of our male colleagues. >> reporter: republicans kelly ayotte were first to sign on. >> we have 20 women in the senate now, that's an historic number. we're not shy, we're accepting up. >> reporter: democrats like heidi high camp, amy low beauty
char and jean sha sheen were on board. and collins spent all weekend e-mailing with patty murray to draft language. women have a history of coming together on the softball field as well. >> kirsten gillibrand! ex trade they're. >> reporter: facing off against the press in a yearly fund-raiser. and debbie wasserman schultz said when it comes to focusing -- >> reporter: collins said senate has formed relationships through monthly bipartisan. bonds that could be key. >> there is a sisterhood here that transcended party lines and i think in this case has helped to produce results. >> reporter: athena jones, cnn,
capitol hill. >> our thanks to athena for that. >> if more women would make it better in washington, we'll have 35 women in the senate. whatever it takes. it's not clear how much progress is being made in washington. but in geneva there are big developments to tell you about about iran's nuclear program. including a high-level meeting between a top official from the state department and one of the foreign ministry as well. reza asieh is live. what is the iranian government asking for in return? >> reporter: well, john, it's critical to point out at this point, we don't know the specifics of what's happening in geneva with the situation.
they had essentially three demands. they suh say they want to keep their nuclear program. they say they're abiding by international law, not doing anything illegal. they also want to continue enriching uranium. they say that's their right to, based on international law. they may, they signaled, that they may suspend uranium enrichment at 20% and they want to be treated with respect as equals. in return, they want some of these economic sanctions lifted. obviously, we don't know the outcomes of these talks but that doesn't mean the iranians are short of opinions and prof prognostications and predictions an one of the best ways to gauge is is to talk to one of the cab drivers and we did just that. >> translator: i think it's fine that they come and investigate and see that iran doesn't have bad intentions.
>> translator: iran shouldn't have to give up anything. we shouldn't have to give up our rights. what belongs to us is our business. >> translator: i don't like for another country to come and make decisions for me. everything should be based on friendship. >> translator: the only thing we should give is confidence to the international community that we're not deviating from our nuclear programs. >> translator: our nuclear rights belong to us. why do other countries have theirs but when it comes to iran, they say we can't have it, why? >> reporter: just a taste of where iranians stand when it comes to nuclear talks. some are skeptical. some of optimistic that a deal could be reached. all of them say they should be able continue their nuclear program. all of them say they want a settlement to be reached and for all sides to get together and end this 34-year conflict. >> riza in tehran with taxicab
diplomacy. thank you so much. fascinating literally for people on the ground. >> i thought that was good insight. let's get an early look at the weather with alexandria steele. good morning. >> hi, everyone. pretty quiet around the country. new york area airports will see low clouds and visibility and a slowdown for a little while. atlanta, chicago, much cooler, windy condition and lower visibility as well this morning. here's the forecast, what we've got is this cold front moving through. behind it temperatures dropping off, a lot of the country, the southwest, the northwest, florida, warm conditions right along the eastern seaboard, still dry until that front makes it toward you later in the week. biggest changes, minneapolis, chicago, about ten degrees cooler than the past couple of days. the front has passed. the temperatures have dropped but the skies are clearing. 75 in washington. 78 in atlanta, georgia. the warmest spots in florida,

hawaii was linked to another similar supplement. it's oxyelite pro. >> this is serious stuff. you're taking serious risks with this. people take it to build up their bodies, get better workouts. >> but when they find substances that are like methamphetamine, my goodness. be careful with your kids. i know you like sea certain pants. you're big on sea monster, right? >> i love them. i absolutely love them. >> we have a story for you. take a look at this, that's actually an eight-feet-long oar fish. he was found off the southern california coast on sunday. look at that ship there. a marine science instructor found the fish by mistake.
>> wow. >> she was snorkeling and sees this giant fish on the bottom of the ocean, swims down, grabs it bit tail and swims it to the beach. it was awesome, there were people sprinting to go and see this fish. >> they're saying this fish likely died of natural causes. researchers say since oar fish live thousands of people beneath the surface, they're rarely seen or studied. >> oh, my goodness, that's a great way to see it. >> plan is to actually bury it to depose and they'll expose the giant skeleton that way, and i suppose study it and have something four the wall. very big wall, right? >> i don't think that's what they're going to do with it. i think they will be studying it. >> oar fish. >> poor fish? >> i said oar fish.
start," everyone. it is "money time." marybel aber is backs with again. >> i'm back. investors around the world waiting to see what will happen next, of course in congress but they aren't panicking here. interesting, japan's nikkei closed higher. there are other signs that tooks in europe could be lower. before today, european stocks rose today, longest in two months. with tomorrow as the deadline to avert the debt ceiling crisis there's no sign that the crisis will resolve. ratings by fitch, fitch said the political brinkmanship in washington is a default risk. as not clear when fitch will make a final decision on whether to go with downgrading. we're talking about timing, right? if the debt ceiling isn't raised by tomorrow, the treasury department won't be able to meet its obligations.
interest payments, military pay, social security, how in the world will the government decide which bill to pay. >> that's the tough question. one they do not have to face even if they don't reach a deal. there's hope if the deal is in place, they can stay calm saturday and sunday. >> that's the shame we're at the edge of a cliff, right? >> yes. it's a shame we've been here before. and we keep going again and again. >> thank you, marybel, we appreciate it. >> we'll be right back.
♪ no deal yet to avert a danger debt deadline. we are less than 18 hours away, folks. so can washington reach a compromise? even if they do, can they get it done in time to avert disaster? and are we just waiting for the next government crisis anyway? >> yes. pages started popping up on facebook and instagram saying she deserved to die.

last night after a last-ditch move to pass its own plan fell apart. a compromise is said to be close. there's a chance it could be vote on as soon as today. >> the debt is here. the deadline is looming. >> i believe that john boehner will likely be in a position where he will have to, essentially, pass the bill that is negotiated between senators mcconnell and reid. and i believe the house will first pass it and send it to the senate. there there are fewer republicans members voting for the bill than actually support it. we'll be seeing a lot what i would call hope, yes, vote, no. >> it's not clear how quickly the negotiations will progress and just when we might see the details of what has been worked out. and there's always a chance that opposition in the house could scuttle any deal. >> there's a sense they want to get to the deal before the markets open. we should see them in the next
hours. even then, it's possible they will not get a final vote on this until saturday or sunday afternoon we hit that date. >> potentially, we could avert if there's a deal. >> hopefully, it means the markets around the world will remain calm. that's all good-ish, right? even if this does happen, and go well by thursday, friday, saturday of this week, we're going to face this problem again in just a few months. brian todd explains why. >> reporter: even if there'ses a deal this time that noting in your gut could well return in a few weeks. >> you're governing by crisis, and that is no way to govern. >> reporter: congressional expert norman ornstein believes there will be more cans kicked down the road until the next shutdown or debt ceiling crisis. the question of a so-called grand bargain, almost zero he says. because on one side, far right conservatives in the house will never agree to raise taxes, even a little. that would go back on their no
taxes pledges and tea partiers and other conservatives would work against them their in bids. >> the nationwide, the fact that so many people live in homogeneous spectrums, all of that is overcome by a political process driven by a small group of americans who are more ideologically driven, and not by the vast majority of americans who still say, come on, compromise a little bit and move us forward. >> reporter: how did it get this way? ornstein says it goes back to the financial clasp of 2008 when george w. bush was president. far right conservatives, he says, hated the bailout. >> the resentment with political leaders working with wall streerts to bail them out, while the rest of the country paid for it, just deeply amplified the kind of resentment against government per se. then the continuing sluggish economy created the tea party movement. >> reporter: but analysts say
it's not just the tea partiers who dug in and created this mess. >> there's blame all around, including the white house. >> reporter: meaning democrats believe they have had the upper hand. it's created a personal, deep-seeded reason why the relationship between these key players may be elusive. >> trust is increasingly replaced by hatred. there's a lot of deep alien yags and just don't like each other. >> or as norman ornstein says it's become tribal in nature. with leaders of both parties saying if you're for it, i'm against it, even if i was for it yesterday. brian todd, cnn, washington. >> that's just a shame. it's childish, right? >> it's a mess. 30 minutes past the hour. a florida sheriff charging two young girls, 14 and 12 years old with aggravated stalking with allegedly bullying a 12-year-old

problem that folks don't ever want to cut spending which is why you have to raise the debt ceiling. that's the real issue here. the president has no proposal, he doesn't want to reduce spending so we're at logger heads. >> you're saying you'll vote for a bill that extends a couple weeks but that's all it came down to? >> in exchange for significant changes and spendinging. the c.r. with obama care, i's a huge hole that's going to create massive debts. it's about $50 billion spent in the next year alone. $800 billion over the next decade, and you can't balance the budget, mr. president, until you deal with your brand new entitlement that is unfunded. >> and on anderson cooper, the consequences of a default. he spoke with former deputy secretary robert wright. >> the doomsday, the actual hour of the day, when we don't pay our creditors, what you do then, it may be a few days after

>> why don't you tell us. >> "man-eater." >> go ahead. >> "private eyes." "your its is on my lips," hall of fame song. john oates has hall of fame hair. >> peter gabriel also on the list. fans can vote to their choice at the rock hall website. the winners will be announced in december. >> i love hall and oates. "early start" continues right now. there are a lot of opinions about what direction to go. there have been no decisions about what exactly we will do. >> there have been repeated situations where we have agreements, then he goes back, and it turns out that he can't control his caucus. >> so the national debt disaster looming. less than 18 hours away now. the senate may be close to a
deal this morning. but the house, so far, refusing to play ball. can congress come together. get this done before this economic catastrophe. >> it's too soon to judge. maybe tomorrow i can come to a solution, but i think it's going well. >> possible progress this morning in a nuclear standoff. iran in direct talks with the united states about scaling back its nuclear ambitions. we are live with the full report. it was awesome. there were people sprinting to go and see this fish. >> really, everyone's favorite kind of monster is a sea monster. an 18-foot sea monster discovered off the coast of california. how one snorkeler made the discovery of a lifetime. >> super, big, humongous! >> you're really into the sea monsters. stay with us for the sea monsters, folks. >> good morning. i'm zoraida sambolin. >> and i'm john berman. great to see you, wednesday,
october 16th, 5:00 a.m. in the east. >> the big question at 5:00 in the morning, will they finish in time. we're just hours away from hitting this debt ceiling, and there's no deal yet despite a day of feverish discussions and now the attention is back on the senate leadership who are trying to reach a compromise. cnn's senior correspondent jim acosta has the very latest. >> reporter: time is running out, the debt ceiling is in sight and the last best hope avenue voiding a potential default once again rests with senate leaders harry reid and mitch mcconnell. we're back to working on a last-minute deal. >> john boehner will likely be in a situation where he will have to pass the bill between house leaders reid and mccall. >> reporter: the president called for quick action. >> we don't have a whole lot of time so what i'm suggesting to the congressional leaders let's not do any posturing. let's not try to save face. >> reporter: the president appeared to put the blame on
john bane's inability to corral the tea-party backed republicans. >> there are situations where we have agreements and it he can't control his caucus. >> reporter: that caucus is once again up in arms despite boehner's tough talks. >> i have made clear for months and months that the idea of default is wrong and we shouldn't get anywhere close to it. >> reporter: the speaker failed to convince house conservatives to line up behind republican proposals to lift the debt ceiling and end the shutdown. it didn't matter anyway, as reid said the gop plans were dead on arrival in the senate. >> extreme lifts and house representatives are attempting to torpedo the bipartisan representatives. >> reporter: that report was all the fitch ratings agency needed to see. fitch issued a warning that may downgrade the credit rating, a potential repeat of what stand & poors did after the last ceiling debate of 2011. although fitch continues to know
that the debt ceiling will be raised soon, house conservatives were brushing off talk of dire consequences to come. >> i think most folks understand october 17 7/8 not the drop dead date. there are no payments due for a couple weeks. >> reporter: jim acosta, cnn, washington. >> so if all does go well this morning, we do expect we could hear from the senators even before the markets open. >> let's hope so. >> if there is a deal reached, the voting could begin today, although it could be pushed back through the weekend. senate leaders say they're close to a deal. the question is, how are investors reacting this morning. >> for that, we bring in alison kos kosik. good morning. >> good morning, you're seeing investors around the world talking about it. you're seeing world markets optimistic that a deal could get done. time is not on washington's side. lawmakers, they are racing against the clock to put a deal together that would actually pass the senate and the house.
right now we are seeing stock futures in the u.s. higher across the board. but that's after we saw a big selloff on wall street yesterday when things kind of went south on house negotiations that are looking to avoid a debt ceiling disaster. remember, treasury secretary jack lew said tomorrow is the day that the u.s. will run out of money to pay all its debts until the debt ceiling is raised. jack lew has said i'm out of magic tricks. out of them by tomorrow. it's estimated that the u.s. is going to have about $30 billion on hand tomorrow. plus, there's going to be money coming in from tax receipts. so remember that the 17th isn't necessarily a drop dead date as far as the default goes. wall street thinks that the real default date may happen sometime in late october. whatever the case, though, the threat of a default has really been unsettling for investors and driving up rates on short-term u.s. treasuries just in case there's some kind of
disruption in the ability of the u.s. to pay out on the bonds. you're seeing more of the nervousness play out in the short-term treasury department than stocks even though we did see the selloff yesterday. >> we've been talking about how do you prioritize the bills that you pay. >> that's what affects americans the most. i'll give you an idea of what kind of hurdles that we're going to face if we get into the uncharted waters. tomorrow, if the treasury runs out of the short-term funding move it's. october 22nd, that's the day the congressional budget office said the u.s. could start missing payments. on october 23rd, a $12 billion social security payment is due. that would affect americans right in their pocketbooks. on october 31st, there's a $6 billion interest payment due on u.s. treasuries that would affect investors. and on november 1st, a $55 billion payment is due on social security, medicare and military payments. there's one factor that shouldn't get lost in all of this. that if the u.s. starts missing
payments that eats into the confidence and also eats into the possibility that the u.s. could be downgraded by one of these credit agencies. >> i think confidence has already eroded some. >> it has. >> and we have seen evidence from around the world, including a key credit agency fitch that issued a stern, stern warning. >> right. we got a taste of this in august 2011 we got close to the debt ceiling deadline then. s&p, standard & poor's downgraded it from triple a to a double a plus. that's what fitch is basically saying get your act together. fitch still lists u.s. as aaa, the highest possible quality of credit. but we should all be concerned that the credit agency's concern is that the u.s. is on its radar for a possible downgrade. but it's not likely that congress can actually pull off the deal and raise the debt ceiling. you would think that lawmakers get it after what happened a
couple years, but they just don't get it. >> alison kosik thanks so much. allison will be back with all of this. we're going to talk about an interesting development, a big development in the international talks over iran's nuclear program. officials from the u.s. and iran sat down in a room together holding high-level discussions. this has not happened in a very, very long time. and it comes as iran is asking for an easing the sanctions in exchange for scaling back its nuclear program. our jim sciutto is live in geneva this morning. jim joins us on the phone right now. jim, give us a sense of where these tox are progressing because the sense we have here is they're moving pretty fast. >> reporter: well, they really are talks, unlike any other between the u.s. and iran. really in recent memory. and i'm speaking to people from both sides from the european and american side and the iranian side and getting very positive
readouts of how they're going. no one is saying they're going to have a breakthrough here in jen reser geneva. i think the most important statement we got yesterday was from a senior u.s. official saying they had very detailed technical discussions yesterday. why that's important in meetings, they getting right to the by the way nitty-gritty of how a nuclear program would work. they're not talking broad strikes, pie in the sky proposals. they're talking about how this would work out on the ground, things like reducing iran's uranium enrichment. it's remarkable. you think where we were a month or two ago and where we stand, it's pretty incredible progress in that length of time. >> you're talking about they're discussing technical details. what are they work off of jim, is it the easing the sanctions? >> reporter: well, iran came here with a proposal. by all accounts, it's serious. it's very detailed, this is what
we're hearing from western officials. they're not being very good about letting us know what's in the proposal yet. we're starting to hear broad strokes. for instance, we know that the iranians delivered it in dliengh by a power point explanation. and they're at the same time asking that the economic sanctions heating up the iranian economy and huge cost in the area and people. certainly for the government those would be relaxed at the same time. that's really a scheduled sticking point, right? because from the american perspective, the european perspective, they want to see confidence-building measures first before they start giving sanctions. it's too early to say this is going to end up fine and dandy, but certainly the first steps are promising. >> jim sciutto with rapid developments between the u.s. and iran as they're unfolding. thanks.
nine minutes past the hour. let's get a check of your wednesday weather. indira petersons is here. good morning. >> good morning. we're still watching the same system. it's just trailing very slowly across the country. you can watch it on the great lakes. still extending all the way back through texas. light rain as this guy makes its way across. slowly by tonight, maybe just a hint of rain in the northeast. overall, so minimal, it's a very dry system. as far as how much rain, take a look at that. about an inch across the area. not a big rain maker except through texas. we're still dealing with moisture. we have that running into the area, with that heavy rain still expected through texas. four to five inches still possible in isolated areas. generally speaking one to three, even that heavier rain going through arkansas, louisiana as well. other side of the story remains. that cool air pushing across the country.

side. >> you're outnumbered, outgunned. >> reporter: sergeant westbrook is shot in the throat and laying out in the open. >> he called out to me and said i'm hit. he wasn't panicked. there's no indication of pain. i called out all right. hold on, i can't get to you, i'm pinned down, keep fighting. >> reporter: swenson runs in open ground dodging enemy fire to get him. the sergeant was crew chief of the medevac. a helmet-mounted camera captured swenson flashing a metal so the helicopter could find him but it makes him a target. >> he was completely under control of the whole situation. he knew exactly what need to be done and when. >> reporter: swenson and a medic helped westbrook to the heel low. then a moment amid the mayhem. watch as swenson gently kisses
westbook good-bye. swenson has no memory of it. >> i wanted him to know it was going to be okay. i wanted him to know he had done his job, but it was time for him -- >> reporter: swenson determined to get everyone out, went back into the battle with others still under fire. to find and bring out the bodies of dead american and afghan fighters. sergeant westbrook died a few weeks later. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. >> 17 minutes past the hour. a popular sports supplement called craze is now off the market after researchers say they found a methamphetamine-like compound in it. more testing needs to be done to find out if it poses any health risks in humans.last week, 24 cases of liver failure and one death in hawaii is linked to another supplement, oxyelite pro. >> we have the story of the day

save money when you fly. first, baggage fees. did you know the airlines earned $3.5 billion off your baggage fees in 2012. pick an airline that doesn't charge like jetblue or southwest. or you can carry them on the planes. frontier airlines, for example, says you may have to pay $25 to $100 to put your carry-ons in an overhead bin. also, if you ever had to change your flight, you know how expensive that can be. most airlines have bumped up their change fee from $200. that's in addition to any difference in the fare. you want to avoid that fee, consider buying a more expensive-based fare. it might not cost you as much to make a change. only one major carrier, southwest does not charge change fees. >> they're going to get you one way or another.

lawmakers literally have hours until midnight, to put a plan together that will pass the senate and then the house. we are seeing stock futures in the u.s. higher across the board but that's after we saw a selloff on wall street yesterday when things went south in the negotiations in the house that looks to avoid a debt ceiling disaster. ratings from fitch got into of the act later yesterday. although fitch continues to believe that the debt will be raised soon the political brinkmanship could increase the ability of default. fitch put the u.s. on notice that it was online for a lawmakers struggling to make a debt deal. basically what fitch was doing was warning that washington better get its act together. fitch lists the u.s. as triple a. that's the highest level of credit. and downgrading isn't likely if a deal gets done. there's less optimism in the treasury. rates there are spiking. investors are concerned about some kind of disruption in the
ability of the u.s. to pay out on the bonds. we're seeing that nervousness play out in the short-term bond market. i want to quickly paint you a picture of what the u.s. is facing if congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling. it's all about choices. who gets paid. who doesn't. it's about prioritizing. so the treasury would likely run about a third short of the money it needs to pay everything from this coming friday and november 15th. treasury secretary jack lew is meeting with president obama and vice president biden should a debt deal fail. like we've been saying on an on, lew says he's out of the extraordinary measures. congress, get your act together. it's ridiculous. >> even if we reach a deal, we're doing it again in january and february. >> lawmakers are the worst
procrastinators. they get a jolt out of pushing things, don't they? >> allison, we appreciate it. hours away from a deadline. can congress reach a deal in time? can they, to avert this predicted economic disaster? the very latest on the negotiations that are happening in washington right after the break.

government crisis? >> pages just started popping up on facebook and instagram saying she deserved to die. i'm glad she's dead. i don't get it. >> a mother demanding justice after her bullied 12-year-old daughter takes her own life. who police have now arrested in this case. this huge explosion goes bam. and we saw the flames come up the side of the plane. >> that's something you never want to see. it was a scare in the air. passengers absolutely terrified. when flames erupt. and their plane fills up with smoke. >> no, never want to see that. but by all accounts they're calm looking there. >> yes. i know i would not be. >> good for them. welcome back to "early start," everyone. i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. 30 minutes past the hour. >> this morning, the debt ceiling deadline only about 18
hours away right now. you're looking at the capitol. it's a live picture. let's hope there is good news coming from beneath that dome. a compromise is said to be being negotiated by the senate leaders. it is said to be quite close. we could hear something of this deal before the markets open. but we have had this hope before. and it has all been for naught. senate leaders started talking again last night. after a last-ditch move by the house to pass its own plan fell apart. that's being diplomatic. it exploded in their faces last night. the framework apparently now being considered to fund the government through january, raise the debt ceiling until february. now, voting on this could begin as early as today. although it could drag until the weekend. all in the hopes of averting this disaster. >> the debt is here. the deadline is looming. >> i believe that john boehner will likely be in a position
where he will have to essentially pass the bill that is negotiated between senators mcconnell and reid. and i believe that the house would first pass it and send it to the senate. there will be fewer republican members voting for the bill you we will see a lot of what i would call hope, yes, vote, no. >> there's a lot that needs to happen here. they don't know an exact deal. they haven't announced it yet. either the house or senate has to vote on it first. will any senators try to delay this, like ted cruz, republican from texas. he has not said what his plan is. if he tries to delay this, it could be saturday or sunday before anything gets to the president's desk. still, expect to hear something from capitol hill in the next few hours to try to calm the nerves of investors are who watching this very closely. >> that seems to be vitally important, right, to get to that step, that level to avert the crazy disaster. >> yes. >> even if they do not reach a
deal, it's not likely -- if they do reach a deal, it's not likely to be a long-term solution. meaning we're probably going to be right back here in just a few months. brian todd explains why. >> reporter: even if there's a deal this time, that ngnawing i your gut could return in a few weeks. >> you're governing by a crisis and that's no way to govern. >> reporter: republican ornstein believes that can been kicked down the road. the so-called grand bargain, almost zero, he says. on one side, far right conservatives in the house will never agree to raise taxes even a little. that would go back on their no taxes pledges and tea partiers as other conservative leaders would work against them in their re-election bids. >> the nature of primaries the fact that so many people live in homogeneous districts that
become chambers. where the political process is driven by a small group of americans who are more ideologically driven and not by the vast majority of americans who still say, comphom oe on, compromise a little. >> reporter: ornstein said far right conservatives, he says, hated the bailout. >> resentment against political leaders working with wall streeters to bail them out while the rest of the country paid for it just deeply amplified the kind of resentment against government per se. then the continuing sluggish economy created the tea party movement. >> reporter: but analysts say it's not just the tea partiers who dug in and created this mess. >> there's blame all around, including the white house. >> reporter: meaning democrats may feel they've had the upper hand politically making them less willing to negotiate. it's created a personal, deep-seeded reason why a real long-term agreement between
these key players may be elusive. >> the trust has indisappedisap. and it's increased with hatred. >> reporter: or as norman ornstein says, it's been tribal in nature. with leaders of both parties saying if you're for it, i'm against it. even if i was for it yesterday. brian todd, cnn, washington. and yahoo is promising privacy upgrades by all of this clients. the giant embarrassed that the nsa had the contact lists on any given day. that is significantly more than any other provider. because yahoo!'s are unencrypted. a new start for glenn greenwald. he's the reporter who broke the nsa scandal. he's leaving "the guardian" to
start a new news organization. buzzfeed reports he will grate a large-scale, broadly focused media outlet. "the guardian" said his details will be released shortly. that comes after more important stories from edward snowden/nsa leaks still to come. the florida sheriff has arrested two young girls in connection with a case of intense bullying. the girls ages 12 and 14 are charged with aggravated stalking for allegedly bullying a 12-year-old who committed suicide last month. rebecca sedwick's mother said the charges are long overdue. >> she should be here. she should be here to see justice getting served. i really really wish that people had listened to a long time ago that had really looked into when it was going on when we were reporting it. i believe that rebecca stopped telling me about it when she
seen i was trying to get something done and nothing was getting done. >> trisha norman is said her daughter was bullied ruthlessly personally and online. and she said the vicious taunts committed after that girl committed suicide. the 14-year-old allegedly tweeting this saturday, i believe rebecca and they skilled herself, but i don't give -- you can see there an expletive. rebecca would have been 13. the flight from dallas was anything but normal. an engine on the spirit airlines jet bursting into flames just minutes after takeoff. passengers say it was so bright it looked like the inside of the plane was on fire. >> the explosion goes bam. and we saw the flames come up the side of the plane which lit up the whole inside of the plane. it looked like the inside of the plane was on fire. of course, it was on the outside engine. the plane started shaking violently. and then after that, the plane started filling up with smoke.
>> all the vents on the side of the aircraft was just pouring smoke. i mean, this full white smoke. before you knew it, you couldn't really see, that's when everyone got really scared. >> everyone got scared, understandably so. the plane returned to dallas and passengers were moved to another jet for the trip to atlanta. spirit airlines said the passengers were not in any danger. the crew followed procedure by returning to the airport. guilty. the plea from disgraced ex-san diego mayor bob filner admitting to one felony count of false imprisonment and two misdemeanors for sexually harassing three women in office. under the plea agreement, the 71-year-old will get three years' probation, that's avoiding jail time. he's expected to spend three months in home confinement as well. new jersey voters go to the polls in a closely watched senate rate. cory booker facing off against tea party activist steve lonegan to fill the seat once held by

that has diminished. we're looking that the tropical moisture combined with that. still looking at anywhere four to five inches of rain possible. keep in mind, over the weekend, they had eight, ten inches of rain in isolated areas. arkansas, louisiana, same thing. looking for that rain over there. the other side, not just rain, but notice cool air kind of shifts east today. temperatures dropping 5 to 10 degrees. especially as you go into the midwest. that can make its way into the northeast as well. keep in mind, there's several cold fronts that are going to stay cool as well. not bad -- it's been hot. >> it's been really wwarm here really long time. >> hot -- 68 -- >> it's the middle of october. >> there's no way you call that hot. >> he didn't. he said warm. >> it's balmy here. it's a warm october. >> someone get me a fan, please.

not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine.
