3:34 pm
gross dmomestic grew. dow sunk 153 today. nasdaq 75 off. why? many analysts believe the signs of improving economy spooked the market fearful the tral reserve will pull back programs suring up the economy. twitter had a good first day. shares opening 45.10 dlarlgs after pricing $26 a share. tonight correspondent peter deuce looks at one more number. how much will consumers spend in the holiday season? >> only 48 shopping days left until christmas. holiday shoppers are set to spend $737.95 each on gifts and decorations this season. sounds like a lot. it's 2% less than last year and part of the reason morgan stanley is forecasting this will be the weakest holiday season
3:35 pm
since 2008. cash registers may be quieter because of what's going on in the capital. >> one the government shutdown, the sequester, three the concern of higher medical costs and the part on some americans for the affordable health care act. the combination of three could cut consumer spending as much as 1% or 1 point. >> most shoppers we spoke to said they'll spend about as much this year as last year. they're going to be more careful before checking out. >> our plan changed for health care prescriptions and everything. it's more now. i'm more cautious about spending. >> i look before i buy and price things out. >> the international council of shopping centers predicting 3.4% jump in sales this season and writes although consumers are facing political and economic uncertainty, higher payroll action at thats, government shutdown, affordable care

3:38 pm
3:39 pm
3:40 pm
i am sorry they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me. we've got to work 45hard to kno that we hear them. we're going to do everything we can to help folks that find themselves in a tough decision. >> president barack obama on nbc apologizing moments ago. he made it clear that he wasn't clear. williams comes with the hill. communist charles krauthammer who's got a book out second only to bill o'reilly on the best sellers list next week. >> you're doing great. >> let's talk about the president. apologizing in this interview also saying he wasn't clear. >> he was extremely clear.
3:41 pm
he was crystal clear. he said if you have your plan and you like your plan, you'll keep your plan, period. the punctuation is the key. no context, caveats, exceptions. that's what the word period means. he couldn't have been clearer. for him to pretend he wasn't is appalling. christie had advice for the president in the interview i think last week. why don't you just say we made a mistake, we're sorry and going to try to fix it. i think that would go a long way. i don't think this president is capable of ever saying that. >> i thought he said he was sorry. if people had a misapprehension based on what he said -- >> based on assurances they got from me. >> correct. i don't think you can be much more direct. he said we're going to take steps to fix it.
3:42 pm
the problem is that people feel they were mislead. in some cases, cancellations are a small percentage of the market. >> we've been down that road. >> we've been down a lot of roads. today i think he was generous saying he was sorry. >> i think this is going to get worse before it's better. republicans smell blood. secretary sebelius have been horrible for the white house on the pr perspective. the irony of democrats scared going to see the president is that from the report the president and white house spent a lot of time trying to hide the fact flaws were a parent in the exchanges from republicans. they didn't want to see the opposition. it turns out now it's the democrats that are the biggest problem worried about their election prospects next year. they had something to do with virginia. it's not only red state democrats. in energy energy, a state that obama won by double digits.
3:43 pm
50% oppose obama care like in the conservative state. >> president barack obama heads to the port of new orleans tomorrow. flying on air force one, she is not going to appear at the event when the president is speaking. her office says the the u.s. senator has a long standing engagement at lake charles that takes place at the same time and she can't be in both places at once. according to the staff, lake charles is 205 miles away. >> she's reorganizing her closet. the president is toxic. the thing is called obama care. there's no running from it. it's got his name on it. you see the president and think about the policy. you know it's a disaster. the problem for democrats, they're hostage to geeks working
3:44 pm
late into the night trying to fix a system that's not just glitches. the architecture, underlying structure is wrong. i think the likelihood of it being fixed and working like any commercial private website normally by december 1 is pretty small. the pressure on the white house will become irresistible. if it isn't up and running smoothly and perfectly, they're going to start postponements then the whole thing starts to unravel. >> take a listen to another sound bite from the nbc interview with the president. >> i regret very much that what we intended to do which is to make sure that everybody is moving into better plans because they want them as opposed because they're forced into it. that we weren't as clear as we needed to be in terms of changes that were taking place. i want to do everything we can
3:45 pm
to make sure that people are finding themselves in the good position. >> juan, we asked people to tweet in questions. mark tweets, why would the gop embrace a one year delay of obama care or the individual mandate when it doesn't change anything except help democrats win 2014 elections? there is now a proposal by partisan from joe manchin, democrat and mark kirk, republican to delay by one year the individual mandate. mark ask asks why would republicans sign onto that delay? >> i don't know. it depends on which republicans you're talking abtsds. they're tea party people. think back to ted cruz and the shutdown. they want to destroy obama care totally. >> one of the questions back then was to delay the obama care. . that came out like if we can't shut it down, will you buy into having a delay?
3:46 pm
>> that would be ironic to get there after all that. >> that's the case for some republicans that still remain totally opposed to obama care. i will say in terms of politic, i'll leave the programming to brother krauthammer. in terms of politics, you look at new jersey. it's the second biggest issue. jobs and economy are first. even among health care in virginia, it's a 3% difference of people that supported obama care and people that didn't. >> the economy and jobs also factor in if you you have people paying more for premiums and deductibles. we had the piece about peter that might affect holiday shopping or expenditures in the economy overall. what about the answer to mark feegan? do you think they'll embrace it? >> i think they will take what they can get when you control
3:47 pm
one house of the legislator and don't control the white house. we'll take it, pocket hit and a year from now probably push for more delays. i think under the circumstances you take it. >> charles? >> i would reject it as a straight offer. the democrats had a chance to get the one year delay. i would say if you want a one year delay, we demand changes in the law. i think that ought to be the bargain. ment d-- the democrats are on their knees. i imagine asking for torque reform or stuff democrats ignored when they ran this through, redo and fix it on ways that are important. >> across state lines. >> whatever. impose things they rejected. now is the time of maximum leverage. >> the feeling is just what you said. for democrats, the feeling okay this is a sucker's game.
3:48 pm
in other words they just want to pull us into something where they're not about trying the pragmatic approach. they're out to destroy it. >> reform is not a pragmatic approach to reduce hundreds of billions of of waste of on medicine every year. it's a constructive approach. it would help america and health care. next up, obama care and the unions. there are seniors who have left hundreds of dollars of savgs on the table by not choosing the rit medicare d plan. no one could hav left this much money here. whoo-hoo-hoo! yet many seniors whoompare medicare d plans realize they can save hundreds of dollars. cvs/pharmacy wants to help you save on medicare expenses. talk to your cvs prmacist, ll, or go to to get your free, personalized pl comparison today. call, go online, or visit your local store today.
3:49 pm
3:50 pm
3:51 pm
this is a special treatment for unions that have supported the president but, more broadly, how are you going to fund the law if you continue to issue exemptions for some people? >> ed, i don't have anything on that.
3:52 pm
i haven't seen that article. >> if you let the unions out now and give them special favor after they have pushed this on america and on everybody else, then what you are doing is you are basically pushing these costs on the remaining people and the unions are as high as 20%. as i understand it between 10% and 20% of people who have will to pay this according to the law unless they get a reprieve or a waiver by this administration. >> well, this is a story about the unions and a possible exemption they may get. this is a rule that was posted in the federal register by h.h.s. last wednesday. and it reads this: quote: we also intend to propose in future rule-making to exempt certain self-insured self-administered plans from the requirement to make reinsurance contributions for the 2015, 2016 benefit years. now, it may sound like gibberish to you but a number of unions fall under that and they could get an
3:53 pm
exemption here. we are back with the panel. jason, what about it? >> the key there is self-insured and self-administered to be fair it's not only unions but big businesses. "wall street journal" had a piece on this today and it said this really isn't good enough for a lot of the businesses and unions because many of them outsource the administration of their health plan so they wouldn't qualify for the exemption, but i think the bigger point here are the optics of what is going on again. just like they bend over backwards to accommodate business and unions on things like the employer mandate, but they don't do so forth individual mandate. again, sends a signal that if you have the lobbyists, if you have the money the administration is willing doubt deals for you but if you are joe snow who just lost his plan, tough. >> tweet the panel tea party coalition tweets. this if obamacare is really a federal tax, how county administration exempt groups from a tax? of course it was called a tax by the u.s. supreme court. juan? >> right. it was called a tax by the court but i think what you
3:54 pm
are seeing is here they are making changes on the fly that they sees a having -- to problems that they saw -- sees a unintended consequences. that they didn't fully see these things. that's all that's happening here. they are trying to fix something even as it's going forward and to come back jason said earlier, i think they are oftentimes doing it in an atmosphere in which they feel they can't be direct. they can't just stand up and say hey, we have got problem because there is some critics out here. >> whose faults with that? they ran through a bill with no republican support. >> whose fault is that no republicans are willing to work with them. >> to the point of this, it's a potential constitutional question. if they exempt certain groups based on a tax. >> obama already been unilaterally changing the law on his own, unconstitutionally lawlessly, and i'm simply surprised that the congress hasn't protested. even democrats will roux the day that they awill you the president to go ahead and to step on their, you know, the
3:55 pm
role of congress is to pass laws. and the executive is supposed to execute them. if you allow the president, the executive to change the law you have emasculated the congress and democrats ought to remember that because one day there is going to be a republican in the white house and they are going to object. so, and that's in general. but, specifically here, this isn't unintended or unforeseen. when you give control of one sixth of the economy, to the federal government, you are going to end up with the cronyism and the favors that we have seen historically in all elements, in all societies where you have essentially socialist control. you have central control. you are going to have the kind of corruption and patronage that you have here. this is simply one small example and there is going to be a will the more to come. >> really quick, do the unions get a break? >> on this probably. because the democrats are going to give them -- the democrats want to appease constituencies. >> i think it's a break as jason said for business and unions. >> not much of one because the administration needs the money that comes in to this fee. >> that's it for the panel.
3:56 pm
