♪ neil: this just did, a government shutdown is on and here is why. four hours away from what looks like an unstoppable force. a government stop at midnight tonight. both sides have not bugs in inch. each line the other for the first government shut down in 17 years. we just heard him call leaders, even as the president said he is open to negotiating, is not open to negotiating what republicans want him to negotiate, slowing down.
8:01 pm
in making it clear that it is not even going to give republicans a chance, today rejecting a counter offer to delay the law for one year. behind the scenes a very desperate starter the festival to avoid a shutdown me. reports that senate republican leader is bowling party members on passing out one week spending bill, enough to keep the government lets on and both sides abide to craft a long-term deal. republicans are not going that far but that apparently resigned themselves to not killing or even delaying the whole health care law son now talk of delaying key parts of the law. including something being debated in the house right now, the individual mandate that requires all americans to buy insurance. there is this back up that would force the senate to vote on a measure that would cut tax subsidies for congress and the president talked out of the health care law. in other words, as one
8:02 pm
republican lawmaker put it, force them to eat their own putting. harry reid telling republicans that they can eat that one, too, which brings us back to something that increasingly looks like it is happening. for the first time since 1996, the united states government's a shutting down. tom delay remembers this from the last time and says that things are different this time. so that sarah palin who is here to say republicans better show some backbone this time. all that and a former u.s. comptroller who says both sides should remember the far bigger crisis facing as this time, namely one that starts a little more than two weeks. the countdown begins right now. just as they start trading in our futures get rolling and the u.s. government itself which release starts on winding. tonight, my friends, we have you covered. tonight, as always, we have your back.
8:03 pm
let's go right to the capitol where my buddy, rich edson, has been doing yeoman's work keeping track of these latest moves and countermoves. what can you tell us right now? >> reporter: from a we have seen over the past a blow days, the house will likely pass a bill that does find the government with those obamacare provision is attached. we are just learning the u.s. senate will be holding votes around 930 this evening to what is called cable those -- table those amendments to muster paul the language out. that is just what we saw earlier from the u.s. senate. the house has rejected the idea, and so we move forward now with what the house will duke. it is unlikely that there is resolution before midnight tonight. simply running and time, especially when you consider what democrats and republicans are saying. many of whom in the house say they refuse to fund the government unless there are changes to the obamacare law. on the democratic side they say that they refused to entertain any concept our negotiation
8:04 pm
dealing with any changes to the obamacare law. we continue this and now especially with the latest coming from the u.s. senate to table what the house has not passed that bill will probably do so in the next 30 minutes. we are where we were this morning, with no sign that this is moving anywhere toward anything but a shut down. neil: it is interesting. a counteroffer from the republicans. you get a sense that they are blinking more than our democrats who have steadfastly held to the deal. either a simple continuing resolution all we are not even entertaining. the republicans went from wanting to help -- kill the health care law to delaying health care law to now supposedly delaying the individual mandate provision which the president all but has said is not negotiable. so it would seem just by their postures that it is the republicans who are getting nervous. what is your sense of it? >> republicans keep going to try to get back to this, but the problem is you have now got a
8:05 pm
situation where republicans put on the table the medical device tax which is something that was on the table for the senate thi morning and that is something again nearly 80 votes in the u.s. senate. digress and not going anywhere near. they have not changed the position. they say that they refuse to vote and then also said that they refused to negotiate on the debt ceiling. republicans keep trying to move toward an area. still, it is nowhere near enough for any democrat to entice democratic leaders to buy. neil: thank you, my friends. we had an interesting comment out of a moderate congressman who refuse to be identified. this is a point that i want to pick up with. these tea party years are ruining our day and ruining our chances. this is a key opportunity that they have had their time in the sun with the rest of us getting burnt. what do you make of that? >> well, the tea party patriots are very fiscally conservative,
8:06 pm
and concerned about what obamacare will do to decimate our workforce and the middle-class. they're not going anywhere, so the moderate anonymous gop member had to my guesstimate better get used to that. and it is very important that people understand. even talk tonight about the government shut down, this is hysterics. governing by chaos. the american people are sick and tired of it, and we are asking, did congress not understand that october 1st was rolling around on the calendar? neil: it really is ridiculous. we did know that it was coming. both sides should have planned accordingly. bottom line, here we be. i am wondering if you buy these polls that say, as angry as americans are about health care, they do not want this to lead to a government shut down.
8:07 pm
valleys in the eye of the beholder. i you afraid the system of. republicans let it be known that this is a problem and a moment to bring this to light. memories on them. they suffered, but as many claim they did in '96. >> again, i have said before, a poll like this, i think that the people need to be reminded what happened during the last step down back in the mid-90s, besides plants and putting up with monica. that is all other story. but they gop actually gained seats in the senate and retain the majority in the house. the also filed welfare reform enacted. we also saw finally a balanced budget. so that sounds pretty good to me . the gop needs to stand firm, not
8:08 pm
blank, and start reminding the american people how irrelevant the federal government could and should be in our lives. one way to show that, to see it and make manifest is still less government show for a little bit, even if it has to shut down in terms of nonessential workers what if there are not essential, they should not be on the payroll in the wake. prioritizing said that military is paid a series of security checks go out. it is all a matter of priorities betty not think that they should fear some kind of government shut down and allow the media to drive this whole narrative. neil: the media is certainly trying to do that. always a pleasure. the me bring your attention to what is happening in the house where they will take this measure, called for a delay in the individual mandate which is the part that requires that individuals buy insurance or pay a penalty. now, the fact of the matter is, the senate has said this is denim arrival. republican senators, the fine
8:09 pm
state of north dakota joins us. that is true, any tinkering with this health care law is going nowhere. t you believe that? do you think there are negotiating points including either the individual mandate which might be more of a stretch than getting rid of the tax on medicare lices? what do you think will prove the middle ground? >> offering compromises that are very popular with the american people, not only funding government, but delaying obamacare. clearly the president has already delayed it himself. on republicans come back and offer a 1-year delay in the individual mandate and eliminate the subsidy from members of congress in the exchange, i think that is compelling and democrats should compromise with us to get a deal done. neil: but if harry reid is not even let that come up for a vote, let's say, you are going
8:10 pm
nowhere fast. if he does it is always attached to the continuing resolution. you are between a rock and a hard place, and the polls, be they what they are, tend to say it will be on republicans. do you believe that? >> republicans are working for reasonable con ermines. right now we're working on funding government, but we have the debt ceiling is she coming as well. the democrats are going to have to compromise to get bipartisan support for these measures. neil: you mentioned the debt ceiling, something i will be raising with a former u.s. comptroller which is really the big fight. this lingers and then you have another potential crisis. by virtue of the calendar, are you really in a bind? a republicans really in a bind? potentially looking and not just a temporary shutdown, but a prolonged one.
8:11 pm
>> we need to get to a solution on funding the government now and on the debt ceiling which is why we keep offering measures that the american people support, and i think that as we continue to do this we are going to get broadbased support that will help us get it done. neil: when do you think it will be? in other words, everyone seems a big knowledge in a temporary shutdown. they usually talk in terms of days, but not like we had back in 1996. i think that one lasted three weeks. what do you think? >> hard to say. i thought we would get into this situation on the debt ceiling. we got into it earlier on the budget resolution. i am hopeful that we can find a compromise. we are offering very reasonable measures that could lead us into a solution on the debt ceiling, but on the debt ceiling we're going to need to find savings, in my opinion, savings and reforms to get bipartisan bump -- bipartisan support for a debt ceiling agreement. neil: we shall see. hope springs eternal life, as they say.
8:12 pm
also getting a read on what is happening and the house floor right now where they're trying. this would be the fourth attempt to counter what the senate has done, this time by delaying the individual mandate in finding something that the senate will accept. the senate already on record as saying unless you give us a stripped-down continuing resolution to keep the government going for another few months everything you finance who will fight back if you. it is a mess. ♪ um... where's mrs. davis? she took an early spring break thanks to her double miles from the capital one venture card. now what was mrs. davis teaching?

8:16 pm
going to accept pay when the government was shut down. he said that he had planned to, but he was clearly caught off guard. controversy ensued, and now he is saying, if we shut down, damn right have won except a. we will give it to charity. we have congressman henry clay joining us also from the fine sieve texas. what does your gut tell you? how long will last? >> said think what will happen is that the republican majority's will pass a bill back again with the 1-year delay. the senate will send it back and at that time you will have democrats in the middle, republicans in the middle. go ahead and pass a clean bill on the budget because this should be on the focus on the budget committee appropriation. anything about health care anything like that is another time. we can talk about that. i would have focused on the budget, how much money we spend, how much money we cut. as we ought to be talking right
8:17 pm
now. neil: they give them their due and they're saying that this is in travolta budget issues and spiraling costs and datasets. they find it a little surprising, the president, democrats in general are saying not now after so many other features of this line been delayed including the employer mandate, the on line provision for small businesses, special exemptions and allowances. so they say let's get our ducks in order. let's disarray head of the implementation of these changes. it would not hurt anyone to the lay-for a year or certain times. are you open? >> again, i am open to talk about the budget. the responsibility of the u.s. congress to pass a budget on time, pay bills on time. this is a budget issue, not health care issue. we had that debate in 2010. the u.s. supreme court had declared it unconstitutional.
8:18 pm
it romney wanted to repeal it. they reelected president obama. this is a budget. want to talk about entitlements. neil: it really is not a budget. it is a continuing resolution because -- and both parties could not come up with a budget. has been years since we got a budget. we do this. recall the budget when it is just sort of like a band-aid approach to keep us going. >> again, the senate finally passed a budget. now let's put a conference committee where both the house and senate can sit down and work out the differences. this is not a health care debate we had that in 2010. let's talk about appropriations. less talk about a continuing resolution. this is what i am ready to talk about. a blue dog democrat. i am ready to open up everything about budget issues, appropriations. let's do it and move on. neil: does that mean that you are open to assuming we get some
8:19 pm
sort of a deal that would avoid a shutdown market limited, revisiting health care and other provisions that could be delayed or adjusted? >> first of all, i voted for the health care law and will be the first one to say that there are modifications. want to see toward reform, mobile where you can move your head insurance from one state to the other. things like that the wanted in the first place. this is not the fight. i will be the first one to say let's go ahead and modify the health care law. neil: thank you very much. we're getting these totals on this. which would delay that individual mandate. the part that requires americans to get health care or pay a penalty. and that is just the way republicans -- if you are not going to kill a law or delay the entire law, at least delay this summer's provisions a year. expected to pay and so that they could set up punting this back

8:25 pm
risk. it always seems a little hyperbolic to me. >> first, let's understand, neil, this continuing resolution is a bigger deal. the reason being is the government has not approved any appropriations bills, none of them, not for defense, veterans, anything. and so therefore it has an ability to have a much bigger impact. but the real battle ought to be, what are we going to do for funding for the entire year and the debt ceiling? if house republicans did not get the senate to go along with this proposal they should pass at three week clean continuing resolution and get on to what matters. and that is, let's start negotiating over funding for the entire year. let's start negotiating for that debt ceiling to make sure we get past the next election. that is where the election is. neil: you would couple that to together. you would put this.
8:26 pm
the three weeks would be roughly about the time that you are looking at -- the government running out of money. so you would treat them both together. >> i would couple them together. the reason being is it maximizes leveraged. but the fact is, the republicans have already made their point. they have now backed off. we want to delay the individual mandate, not the whole lot, just a mandate. you want to eliminate the congressional carve out. the american people will win on those points, but we don't have the votes to be able to get what they want now. so do a clean continuing resolution. do not cause a disruption. frankly, continuing resolutions in many cases ending a cost us more money and destruction. let's focus on what matters. let's focus on the debt ceiling and the need to agree on funding for the year end targets to deal with the structural deficits. neil: does this give you any hope? if they cannot handle this?
8:27 pm
this was well telegraphed. they did not think -- and so if we are at this brinksmanship now , it seems to me that we are having a hell of a lot of difficulty dealing with that and not going to have much more ability to deal with these ongoing issues. >> first, congress has only passed family budgets and appropriations bills four times in the last 62 years. this is not new. with the mistake was less they should not be leveraging the continuing resolution. we need to keep the government operating. we need to do something about spending. we need to raise the debt ceiling. we need to focus on the three things that cause i structural deficits. social and insurance programs, rationalize their of their promises and do a comprehensive tax reform. neil: they never do. >> they have not. neil: and you can understand sometimes that we tried everything else. we will try it later.
8:28 pm
take a chill pill. we will come back. a lot of these people come back and say, well, the hell with this nonsense. we are sick of the broken promise. >> that is why you can raise the debt ceiling by a certain amount , exchange it for spending reductions including some mandatory spending reductions calculated over the high rise. there is way to get it done. the president is willing to negotiate with the iranians, he ought to be willing to negotiate with the republicans. neil: all right. we shall see. it is always a pleasure. thank you as he was speaking in the house is getting done voting and a measure that would go nowhere fast in the senate, the individual mandate provision, foreign markets are generally mixed. underlying stocks under earlier today, nominally to the upside. again, the expectation is a market, and it is always dangerous, that even if we have a shot down, it will not last that long. it will not drag on i hasten to
