7:02 am
needs. whether they will be paid, that is all very unclear at this moment. >> reporter: you talked a little bit there'ster: a differe between this shutdown, and the one cent in the past. it goes to the nature of the disagreement. people have been saying is what is there to negotiate on. >> that's right. last time aye 95, and '96, whenh it's about budget and spending p there's always something to to compromise, you will get that courthouse, if you get this budget item.thtit this is ideology, it's policy, o it's about the affordable care act. i don't see where they can come to agreement on this. somebody is going to have to lose face, that is a hard situation to expect somebody to give them when face is being be lost and not just a little horse trading. >> the shutdowns from the past a in jerntion except fo general e ones lasted a few hours, and a a

7:07 am
paychecks and then the next paycheck living like that. >> it's going to be prettyetty awkward for people, and there's going be to a lot of fear righth now. what we're looking at a shutdow where some people will be goingg to work because their agencies g are getting money, it's alreadyl been appropriated, others employees are going to be toldot to go to work, but they're not going to get paid until un everything is over, and then some people are going to be tolo go home spur not goin and u nott paid at all.l. that is going to scare a lot off people badly.le the people that are going to have to work who don't havehave money appropriated for them, could have to work for weeksfor with no pay. a lot of people, we tell people you should have a cash reserve,e you should be saving money for an emergency like this, a lot oo people don't do that. there's a lost employees. >> can't do it. >> they live paycheck to paycheck, when you see a paycheck interrupted it's a traumatic experience for thoseoe folks.
7:08 am
>> do we have a sense of howof h many people today in this -- not just in this area, but acrosst the country, but it's hit hardest here, how many people herema will go to work and shutdown your computers, turn in your blackberries, what haves, you, and go home.ho >> anywhere from a third to half of federal employees will go home. half of the department of d defense will go home.home. they have 400,000 civilian employees who will be going in, turning around and going back about 11 on 12% of homeland security will go home. 97 yes, sir of nasa will -- 87%- of nasa will go home. home most of hud will go home. most of epa will shutdown.wn. so pretty significant agencies have have really important im missions are going to be telling almost all of their employees today turn around and dep go ho. >> you served in a capacity as s someone who would help implemenm a plan. how does a head of an agency, o
7:09 am
an agency educated to work for us, go through moments like this. >> you explain to people whichwh category of position they have in so they have understanding. you tell them what kind ofof resources are available forle fr them. if this continues too long can a they apply for unemployment benefits? you tell them what kind of laws still apply for them. if you're a federal employee anm i send you home, all the ethic t laws that you are covered by,, are still covering you. so you can't be sent home and say i will work temporarily foro some company. if you have a restriction on outside employment, even though are you not allowed to go to work and are not going to get paid, that restriction is stills in effect. what we had to do is help employees through all of that, explain what their rights were,e what kind of things they couldd and couldn't and then tell them we don't kno when thiswe is going to end, ann we will see you when it's over. >> how much leeway, you mentioned that some people willl be able to continue working if i
7:10 am
they're working on something that the funds have been have appropriated for and that kind of thing and it continues through for a period of time. how much leeway does each agencg have in determining who is laidl off, who is not laid off, or furloughed, i should say that type of thing. >> there are pretty descriptive regulations and policies that came out of the omv that tell te agencies what to do. and then the agencieses have to make their own call on what positions are exempt, meaning they are not covered at all, al bhawz they havbecause they haveg source of money or are exempt, because they are protecting property or life or health. and then those that have to go o home. they make those decisions andths have a pretty amount of leeway in doing that.g >> you are the author of a blog that is called cheese you deal with hr issues.

us how the weather is going to impact. i think your news. >> mostly a good news. >> that is hard to do. >> i read yesterday congress haa a 1 10% approval rating. >> even that is higher than it should be. be >> the problem for me is the dysfunction goes on so much the time, that i almost start tuning it >> it has become unfortunatelyly the new normal. i mean, we don't even mentionme the fact that they haven't passed a rel budget in four years, i think it's been. even when they get back and pass this budget it's for a couple of months, it's patch work, patch wore. work. >> you were elected to do a job. >> so the memorials are closed, if you are coming to d.c. andd.. you think you are seeing the lincoln memorial, you can't evet see

7:32 am
there's the cloud deck, there's not a lot to it, but it's movinn across the region as we speak. it's the left overs from the frm cold front that we were looking yesterday, it hit the left over cloud cover, so we will is havea the cloud cover for the start or the t day, progressively, wewe should see the clouds start to breakup and we should see partial sun along with theith th afternoon, the south and west, there's a lot of very warm airwm out to the south and west that h we're going to be able to tap into, afternoon highs low to mid-80s, by tomorrow, to mid-80s with humidity up just ju a touch.a it's going to feel like 90 by by tomorrow afternoon, we will have summertime temperatures, plentyp of sunshine, warmer afternoon, we will be dry this afternoon, f and tonight just a couple ofe of clouds and how about that for a nice warm start to the move october. 80s are around here, perhaps pe some rain, it looks like the pattern is going to start to affect a little bit by the end of the weekend, and there couldd be a day of storminess, with good soaking rain, perhapspe monday and maybe tuesday.
7:33 am
that is weather, let's take a look at traffic with julie. >> reporter: all right,t, tucker, on the highway, you are going to find that lanes are ar open to and from the wilson wi bridge, we are busy on the inner loop of the beltway continuing from spinningfield to gallows road. a ten-minute commute there. northbound 295, 14 minutes fromm d toward the 11th street bridge with alle wih lanes open. accident reported northbound 5 before brandywine, and a crash at westbound 4, at brandi road. we show you what we have on theh highway this morning. northbound along i-95, the lanes are open, no accidents tos to report. problems we had earlier, quickly moved to the shoulder, trafficc will slow leaving newington ne headed toward the springfield better change, befor before 123d southbound 270, congested out of germantown. and that's a check of fox 5 on
7:34 am
time traffic. all right, julie. it's 7:35. while the nation may not feel fe the effects of the governmentvee shutdown right way, here in the d.c. region of tens of thousands of workers are preparing for aoa direct hit. you may be one of them. this tsunami couldn't be coming at a worst time. for more we will turn to fuller for director of the analysis at the george mason university. thanks for coming in. >> you have used this word tsunami to scieb th describe thh potential economic impact for fr this region. that is strong word, is that high per blay, or you think it'i going to be a major economic impact. >> it's probably a high per blay, in a sense, but it's a erosion of the washington area economy. it comes at a particularly bad time.d this event by
7:35 am
itself, it's a couple of hundreu million dollars a day, maybema more out of local so you can measure the effect,ef it's maybe as 700,000 jobs are affected, if you count all of of the collateral damage, but the economy is quite weak now because of the sequester. we are losing jobs overall. so you tack that on the back of a bad three months, and then looking forward to the debt ceiling debate, the fact thatat there's no budget for the nextte year, all of the conditions that undermined confidence, both investor, confidence, consumermr confidence, it's very worrisome. >> and i want to go broad, just for bra moment and then we will get back to the specifics based on what you just said?said? will this be a concern to our creditors, and in terms.rms. nation, and the bond ratetionstn and our credit rating and all ol that kind of thing as well? >> i don't think so.
7:36 am
there's not fundamentally wrongr with our economy. this is a political issue, andan the bond ratings don't put that on it. the extent that it under minds the fiscal instant 4 integrity l economies, there's important tax implications and local jurisdictions begin to running difficulty paying back bonds ans so forth. i don't see this as an immediate problem. >> zun wft concerns that theis that the economy recovery has been been this robust gang busters recovery that we are seeing. >> we will have had a much much better year in 2012, and 13. 13. 13 is running, maybe at aboutab half of what we were doing in in terms of growth, job growth has lessened, in fact, we went negative in august. we lost 26,500 jobs in the th washington area last month, now
7:37 am
it's august. september won't be any better, so we're tailing down at a time when the economy should bey shld picking up.g the forecast for the 4thh quarter and for all of next year, were for accelerating acce growth. that is significant in the in th budget now by the this shutdown and it could get worse. >> you mentioned, you gave a $200 million of the daily, potentially daily loss, tell me about the ripple effects. how do you come to that figure?? >> well, the direct effect, we're probably losing around $95 million in federal pay rollo once this gets set, and another 30 or $35 million in the federal contractor pay roll, not having that money in the economy, costs businesses potential sales. the multiplier effect is about 1.75. for for every dollar he withwi don't get in federal spending in pay roll spending we lose $0.75 from the loss of businessu that dollar is supporting. it ripples through.
7:38 am
nobody is going to be immune to this. real estate, we can't sell houses without getting mortgages, you can't deal withct the irs. there's a lot of agencies that we rely on every day for the conduct of business inin washington area, and nationalnd this, is a national issue. issu all of a sudden, they're closed. >> the fact that the district is declaring all of this workers essential, so they will continuh to work, at least for the time being, they will continue to get paid, does that -- i don't wanta to sigh, but does that soften the impact for the immediate region. >> i hadn't figured any local lo government job losses in these calculations, is certainly coul have been worse. don't know how long that pool of money will last, but clearly, the important question, is why the district should be tied too the federal government in then h first place in terms of their budgetary decision making. but there will be local
7:39 am
government officials ors or employees affected by this, because some of them depend on n federal funding for their work. >> if the shutdown lasts, let's' say this week, let's say they resolve it friday for example, would it really just be a ripple in terms of the local economy or would there be lasting effects. >> i tell people that one day is like a snowstorm. we have a snow day, we know how to deal with that.t we get beyond it. a week, probably especially inly the federal government workforce gets paid, if they get get reimbursed for the time lost which is what has happened inped the past but it's not guarantee this time. the serious effects are next week and going forward as it becomes institutionalized, the federal workers still get their next paycheck, but at some poino they run out of money. two or three weeks, this becomes very important, and it begins to erode the gains we made this ths year. we're looking at a third of gdpd
7:40 am
tied to this after three weeks. nationally they have tang a half point out of gdp if this goes go three weeks, are you losing a third of the growth expected fox the year because of a three-weee event. >> some will forget that thesett are real people, real lives andi they'res real budgets. >> you can see the unemployment rising. clearly if we can get the datae from the federal government. >> i don't know if we will get the data. >> stephen, as always, thank yok for coming in and providing a a look at it. >> thank you. >> it's 7:41 allison. >> we will be right back. stay with us. so what can i get you?

8:04 am
germantown to the split a a 45-minute commute. minor fender bender, quickly pulled over to the shoulder,er, business 234, and a 45-minute-mt commute, nothing stopped alongod the way. a quick peek at the camera, we will pull that for you, inner loop on the beltway, and headed for the wilson bridge. that's a check of fox i hav foxe traffic. democrats and republicanspui fail to come to a budget agreement by midnight. shortly thereafter, the white house issued the order for federal agencies to begin shutting down. that means 800,000 federal e workers are temporarily withouti a job, really following mandated furloughs, national parks across the country are closed. here in the district monuments, the smithsonian me museum and te national zoo is shutdown, but the political tug-a-war isis showing no signs of letting up soon. >> there should be no specialno treatment for anyone under the law. of that is a founding principle
8:05 am
of this country. no special treatment for anyone. equal application, equalion streament under the law. >> you don't get to extract a ransom for doing your job for doing what you're supposed to b doing anyway. or just because there's a law that that you don't like. like >> to add fuel to the fire, the nation's debt ceiling deadline is more than two weeks away, which could prove to be another showdown on capitol hill.l for more on where thethe negotiations go from here if there even are in any. we are joined on the phone by virginia congressman jerry connolly. good morning, congressman, are you there. >> many ggood morning tony, i a. >> tell me is what is going to happen, are there going to be meetings, some attempt to hamme things outto on. >> it's certainly my hope thatho there will unfortunately, m friends on the republican side of the aisle
8:06 am
have not involved democrats atrs all in the continuing resolutioo -- you can't even call them negotiations in their plotting and planning to try to bring down the affordable care act, they have not included democratr in their deliberations. de so we're going to have to try to reestablish communicationlish between the two sides in the house, and reestablish communication with the senate. but what has happened is truly, a reckless act. i can't tell you, you know, in my 19 years in public life, i, i don't think i've been more disappointed, more angry about something than i have about this. this was entirely avoidable, bu there's one faction within the republican calk u the tea party factions that relished thethe prospect of a shutdown, and you saw it in august, and their tow hall meetings, where the cry wa shut it down. d now they have, and as you pointu it out, tony, this has an impac
8:07 am
on real people's life, not justt here in met politan, washington but throughout the united statet of america. it's absolutely wrong. >> what is your response to people. some republicans who say everyone is saying we need to compromise, but the democrats need to compromise as well and they have also, you know, kind of drawn, a hard line on in particularly the affordable care act and that the fact that fa they're not going to stand for it tost be defunded? >> there was a great article in today's post that debunked that notion. you know, you don't -- you don't negotiate when someone has a gu to your head saying give me the money and nobody will get hurt. that is essentially what the republicans have done. they couldn't defeat the affordable care act, in any other way, they couldn't defeat it in the legislative process. they had a chance through the judicial process and it wasand i found to be constitutional bytia the supreme court. then then had an election, and
8:08 am
the president after whom thisths affordable care act is named by them. won by votes. by you had three bites at the apple, and you failed.d you can't say we are going to gg hold the country hostage unless we get our way, even though we g understand that users is a minority view in the legislature. it's just wrong. what is wrong with saying, we can -- they have already had 46 votes to repeal obama care. car. are we to understand that somehow both parties are equall to blame in shutting down the government, no. they are engaged in hostage taking and the american people shouldn't stand for it. >> if the affordable care act issue were taken off the table, would a bucket ge budget get ap. >> yes, i talked to a lot of my republican colleagues lasteague night, we were there very late. we had four sets of votes where they tried everything and the kitchen sink as a condition foro funding the government all of
8:09 am
which failed when it got to the senate. i was talking to a lot of my republican colleagues, who told me publicly, of course we need d clean and continuing resolutiono we understand that will be thea endt game. they may need some kind of face-saving mechanism to get out of the bind that they put themselves and the country in. but hostage taking isn't going to work.rk. >> sir, i quickly want to to mention, one the impacts for the people in this area, some people don't know if they will get retroactive pay when this is all over, you and congressman moran are working to address that. >> we introduced a bill immediately after the shutdown in of theth last final vote las night tony that would make everybody whole who is affected by the shutdown, federal worker. however, in the past, we have always done even newt gingrich agreed to that in the shutdown of 17 years ago. whether this crowd will go alon
8:10 am
with that remains to be seen. this is the most antifederaledel employee, majority in congress ever. the frozen federal pay, the pa three years, they have cut their benefits, they have tried to us their pension toto fund other pt of the government and reduce the debt. they are disparaged them publicly in their remarks whether we're going to be able to persuade them that th nonetheless these are innocent victims of your inaction and yo they need to be kept we are going to fight for that. i'm going to fight tooth and nail to make sure that they are kept whole as every congress ins the past has done. >> we will continue to follow that and we will continue to check withco you, representativ jerry connolly. >> it's a pleasure being withngt you. >> we will get to the republican point of view when the virginiaa congressman ron whitman joins us live. our coverage of the shutdowndown continues on air and online.

8:31 am
virginia, for his take on thee blame game. >> hi, tony, how are you doing o this morning n i'm doing well, e but hearing the frustration ofrn the many of your viewers who wh can't believe it has come to this. what do you say, a lot of blame fairly or unfairly is being placed at the doorstep of the republicans at capitol hill. what do you say to the peoplethe who say this is outrageous, thir should nota be happening and for those who are blaming your party for this? >> i'm equally frustrated. i know they have been calling mg office and expressing their frustration. i think it's it's an abdicationt of leadership from both sides, we could have avoided the whole shutdown, especially in august,s when we should have been in town, working on these bills. we need to make these disietion and get the job done for the american people.erica we look at federal employees who are out of work, at home, havin bills toha pay, and this affectc
8:32 am
their lives tremendously. i hope people realize the impact that this has. all along the way, i have been advocating that government continues to operate, that we pass the cr, and we get theth things done that this nation na needs to be doing.g. >> in the end you did vote for the republican bill and it did have language in it about delaying obama care, if that is a nonstarter for the senate, wh, support that bill if you know that the ultimate fallout fromou that bill is going to bet a shutdown? >> well, i have no control overo what the senate does. what i do have control over is what i vote for. i told people at every turn thau i will vote in favor of fundingu the government. gove that is the only bill that i had before me. i do think there's issues withsu these affordable care act that h need to address. i will always vote in theth interest of und ifing the government, and keeping the doors open. i don't have control on what happens in the senate but i dodo have control over what i vote i for.
8:33 am
and i will continue efforts toto keep our government to operate. >> i understand that you have no control over what happens in thh senate, but you do know, that th the vote didn't happen in a vacuum. you know what the result of theh vote is going to be, that, there's going to be a rejectione of this bill and the governmento is going to be shutdown. >> le with, i don't know what the senate may or may not do. we have to act in the house independently. that is the way the founders put together the government for thee house to act and the senate does their thing. i can't anticipate what theth senate does. many times we have bills that th come before us that are based on the debate and the discussione within the we send it to to the senate, ann they do our thing. that is the way that the the government is set up to have th back and forth between the two bodies, every opportunity i havi to fund the government and makee sure that government operations continues, and the cr is the only choice i have, i voted inve favor of continuing to fund government. >> tell me about the atmospheres on capitol hill right now, one

8:35 am
without making sure that the th continuing resolution is taken a care of. i share people's frustration, i'm frustrated in seeing what at needs to do. governing dunn include shutting down.wn governing includes leaders ons both sides, both parties, both o house and senate gettingng together, having a decision making sure that the government is funding and the operations of this country proceed on. on we have tough decisions withionw regard to funding we have to make those decisions. people sent us to washington to do that, i wanted to make sureak that wee are here working on their behave and making sure that we get the job done. i'm there to vote for a clean cr and make sure that the govern go continues to be funded. i am an anxious to vote on aa bill hike that to get government going. >> congressman wittman of virginia. thank you for this morning. >> thank you, tony. we will be back with fox news this morning.
