11:04 pm
stimulus through inact, by not acting to change the pace of its bond buying it rallied the markets and at least laid the groundwork for mortgages to fall a little bit from their recent uptick. this is a mess of its own making of course, the fed's own talk about the tapering of bond purchases that led to the spike in interest rates. the fed always talks about monetary policy as a balance of risks. and one of the concerns even within the fed is that by keeping interest rates low for very long andby continuing these unconventional policy measures by buying treasury bonds and mortgage bonds, the fed could lay the risk later on. but some of what you have been talking about in the program is actually very relevant because bernanke and the fed was very opiniopoignant in flagging the .
11:05 pm
in a way, it's congressional inact that's forcing the fed's hand. >> now to that congressional inact that pedro just mentioned, the president is bracing for yet another battle over the debt sealing with republicans in congress. they are offering a path for government shut down. they are wanting to take down the president's health care plan. mike viqueira last the story. the nation could default, all of it could happen in the next few weeks, with no compromise in sight, many are asking why is washington bringing the country to the brink again. tea party authorities, revolt from his rank and file, today house speaker john boehner quickly agreed. >> our goal is to protect the

11:07 pm
the compromise seem far from reach. tom nance says the country is far from broken. >> it is a matter of takings the country down of ideologic zealotry so dominating the motivatiomotivations of republin members. >> in a typical election almost 90% of house seats are safe, no chance of losing to the are opposite party, but funded by millions from outside groups like the club for growth. >> what's the point of having a republican in office if all they're going odo is vote to grow the size of government just a little slower than democrats. if the the democrats are driving the car off the cliff at 80 and the republicans slow it to 60,

11:10 pm
half. >> the idea between chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy is to give the city a fresh financial start free from past bills and obligations. in detroit's case however much of that debt isn't to investors banks or big corporations. it's to retired workers who depend on those pensions after years of work. >> when you look at michigan and detroit this is no accident. this is purposeful. >> the city's public service unions are fighting detroit's bankruptcy filing in court saying it's unnecessary, illegal and most of all unfair. >> we have earned the right to our pensions, no one is giving us anything and no one should be taking anything from us.

california has deficit, chicago has deficit, atlanta has deficit. all these cities with deficits, no bankruptcy, no emergency manager. if it's good enough for them it doggone well should be good enough for city of detroit. >> how the judge rules on bankruptcy could set a legal standard that goes well beyond detroit. >> tensions are certainly a -- pensions are certainly a big part of it because there are so little of a track record, all the big cities that are struggling with the pension liabilities and how to restructure their debts are really watching detroit very closely. >> federal judge stephen rhodes is expected to move through these proceedings quickly and decide to declare detroit bankrupt as early as next month. a are service for the victims of the navy yard shooting, meanwhile the
