stuff on the table, but there's some other things, everybody ev starts off on the table, andand that begins, that processpr begins, if they want a super committee. whatever the republicans want,ls if they say, okay, we will openp the government, and extend, and not default on our debt, i thinh you will have people at the table by end of november. but, but, if there's some precondition, i mean, first of all, the sand is shifting. at first we're going to d delaye obama care. now we want to start talking about the budget. i think that iths a good thing. >> a gree with you on thii agre. this is all about spending. >> i didn't say. i did >> what is the budget. >> budget includes revenue andad it includes spending. >> i understand that. so this is u about spending. we clearly don't have the
revenue which is why theth president wants to raise the debt ceiling so this is about spending. a gray witagree with thank you,n sit down where this country is $17 trillion into debt then youo can have. >> that should be a revenuenue discussion. the reason we are in this bind is two fold, number one the bush tax cuts turned out to be a disaster, they did not help the economy and we spent money on two wars. >> let's talk more about the th debt ceiling issue. i thought it was interesting. i don't think a lot of people realized this, house leader, nancy pelosi, saying that he made a big mistake on pledging l not to raise the debt ceiling without congressional approval. we could have avoided this by taking the debt ceiling out of equation. >> depdepogo ahead, peter.
>> whenever we get to that th witching hour. we don't default on anything an because we can pay our debts. it's not like we don't haveve money coming in.ney we are getting $200 million off income. we can pay the interest on the debts. we can do a lost things, theth debtin ceiling is so we can sped more money.more that is a situation we have raya problem with. >> what does the debt ceiling do? of your question isonis that the 14 amendment which wasa written specifically part of it to deal with the debt question. there's a lot of legal analysts and a former president of theesd united states, bill clinton who said you can do this. i think what the president doess not want to do in this case is s to act unilaterally. i think he wants the responsibility to be spread about. the debt ceiling increase is is because the congress passes legislation, bills that appropriate money and, then theh
have to pay the money. now jim is not quite accurate oe this in that some things won't o get paid right away. contractors won't get their money. small businesses will be in some trouble. 80% of it is already in the pipelines, but 20% of it -- -- >> this is all about spending then. >> jim. >> it goes back to the biggerbi question.ques >> if congress wants to not appropriate certain appears of moofney for certain things, they can do that.do >> they're allowed to do that. >> right now we're in a situation where the ehtconomy is started to move forward, we're -- where unemployment rates wer coming down, where we were doing better internationally. we just unfortunately because the president couldn't go on thh asian summit. now china is filling ta void. it's not helping our economy. we're losing $300 million a daya because of the shutdown. it's going to cost $2 billion. 2 and physical conservist like
republicans should be concerned about it. >> this is a spending problem. we're $17 trillion in debt. >> real quickly. qu who do you think out of this, who is going to be to plame outl of this whole -- blame out ofof this whole shutdown. i know you said it's the other side. a lot of us are thinking we elected these folks, they're're here, but here it's different in washington we look at differently than the folks fo outside of the beltway. but they see that their representatives are doing what they want. >> it's hard to say a year from november.nove jim and i have been playing an attorney in politics. they're mad at everything. they're furious at everybody, but if you look at the one racen right now where the government shutdown in its physical crisis is playing, that race is virginia, cuccinelli is in deep trouble. my prediction is cuccinelli loses this race for a number ofe reasons, he was so far away being with ted cruz the other day. there's a problem right now for the republicans of virginia.
>> what was the question again? >> who is going to be to plame out of this. >> i -- blame out of this. >> peter is right, there's going to go to both houses.house the senate is not going to agree. there's as much to blame as as everybody else, but peter is right, next november is a longlo time from now. hopefully we can remind folks that harry reid.re >> always appreciate seeing you. >> all right. r >> back after this. ig

members. >> what do you know about the compensation checks that are due to go out on november 1st to the families? >> this is more of a tricky issue. the october paychecks are fine, depending how long the shutdown lasts, it's believed that the dispensing of the checks of november 1st. >> the november check is for october. >> for november. >> the october paychecks arere out. there's a lot of lingering doubt and lack of clarity on any sortt o deadlines as respect with what the va can dispense, depending on what congressress reaches, and with respect tie budget. >> my understanding is thatis tt veterans also are not able to g to their veterans service centers across the country, i think some 56 or so. >> are closed.ed. >> correct. >> because of the shutdown as o it's gonef on and on, we're ine the 9th day.h a lot of these regional officesa have had to close a lot of services available to thele to veterans. the ability to conduct typical day-to-day a services, is at a
stand still. as far as veterans being able to follow-up with a lot of their issues via related claims, it makes it much more difficult. it isn't there, like it was whee the fund are there. >> i would imagine, youou i personally and your organization and many other veterans andand veteran groups have to be outraged? >> we are, it's simply unacceptable. it october deadline is no surprise. every year the budget has to be passed but the predictability o not passing a budget year after year is what is disappointing. unfor opportunitily these gut-wrenching incidents, we are hopeful, that they will get g congress to get on board with something and get th up and rung so veterans can take care of of them. >> how serious could this become forrest rains and thfor veteran of those lost in action?on

appropriate and dispense funds as best they see appropriate. >> i hope and many other people hope that this resolves quickly. it's awn unfair thing to do. >> it's a terrible time in our country to see these sort of things happen. >> nick mccormick, is a representative of the militaryry veterans and families, and he himself is a veteran. beware of breast cancer charity scams. we are checking in with the consumer team for details about that. and more details of the last week's mayhem at capitol hill. what the suspect was carrying in her car at the time and chase of the shooting. the time is 8:10 a.m.

dollars plus a lot unsightlyun wires throughout your house. now you can do it with wire lease technology and you can use your tablet or smart phone to control things, the systems tha we priced for the november issue of the magazine cost anywhere $200, roughly around $200 to $400 for the system. sometimes there's a monthly mo charge as well, because you hav to have internet link and ongoing wireless technology set up. so anyway, but it's rather affordable if it does what you want it to do? >> what kind of protection do you have when you are dealing ar with this kind of stuff, you yo know with technology, you know?? >> exactly. the basic system can give you a little bit of security. they use motion sensors to to detect motion, or it turns the appliances off and on, the thirh thing they can do is regulate is temperature, and heat and thinn like that.th those are the basic systems tha can you get. get. now there are more sophisticateo
