1:32 pm
with the debt ceiling. a number of congressional republicans they wanted to impose conditions for raising the government's $16 trillion debt limit. some have insisted on spending limits. just when the treasury-secretary says, christy i'll start with you. it's simple. why not? >> heather, i don't know, this seems to be the opposite. we went through exactly this argument two years ago and republicans refused to raise the debt ceiling. it led to the unprecedented step of united states losing our aaa credited rating. the difference that we've seen in this republicans in congress is that starting with mitch mcconnell number one goal it was make president obama a one-term president which we all remember, it seems as though they are taking a series of steps which they are taunting
1:33 pm
it. just because they don't want to do their jobs. it's increasingly dangerous. >> heather: to clarify, mcconnell made that statement but he made it at midpoint after president obama announced his preferred policies. went on to say in the same interview, he said i don't want the president to fail, i want him to change. so let's go to you justin. beginning with my initial question which was, why not negotiate and say, okay, we'll raise the limit but we're going to do this in order to do that? >> i don't understand why secretary lew, why the obama administration is basically giving congress the representatives of the american people, a take it or leave it ultimatum. this is not leadership. a president of united states who campaigned at one time, we're not red states or blue states, we're the united states, is now telling one party the republicans that control the house of
1:34 pm
representatives, i'm not going to negotiate with you about $16.7 trillion in debt that our children and grandchildren are going to have to pay. to me, president obama should not listen to the nancy pelosi wing of this party and listen to the moderate voices of his party and bring the republicans, bring the democrats together and talk about what reasonable limits are on government spending in order to increase the revenues. >> heather: the congressional budget office says the debt limit does not need to be raised until october or november. partisan standoff we remember that, they downgraded the nation's credit rating for the first time. what do we need to do to keep it from happening but at the same time figuring out what is causing us to spend more money than we're bringing in? >> it is simple but not the
1:35 pm
democrats are not opposed to it to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion already. have plans to reduce by many trillions of dollars more. it's not as though the index of that are the issue. the issue is getting democrats and republicans to come together and talk to one another. that has been the issue for the last number of years here. on anything we've seen an unprecedented gridlock in congress that is preventing democrats and republicans from getting together on anything. >> heather: we have a minute left. justin, i'll start with you on this. the battle over the debt limit. that keeps up as republicans are gearing up for a separate fight apparently among themselves and with the obama administration over the budget. some g.o.p. lawmakers including congressman mike lee, they threatening to vote against funding the government beyond september 30th unless money for president obama's healthcare law is eliminated. why should we fund something that even the president has admitted, parts of it, aren't ready yet? >> this is problem the way

they decided to jam obamacare in the middle of the night using procedural. >> year and a half, justin. you seem to be forgetting that. >> well, no, waited they did it. there were votes that were taken past midnight when the american people -- be that as it may, if president obama had taken a more bipartisan approach in terms of healthcare reform -- >> i'm pretty sure you know that. >> he wouldn't have the problems he has now and chickens are coming home to roost for president obama based on his very partisan way in which he got obamacare passed. >> heather: i have to end it on that. we have deadlines coming up. we'll see what both sides do to resolve it.

1:43 pm
>> not sure it is really working. >> and you are right. they are actually trying to show that he is criminal with a conscience, he is not that bad, a robin hood, part of the reason the lawyer stood up in the opening, he is guilty of loan shark go and drug dealing. they want to make two points in the trial. it's crazy. first of all he is 83. he was on the lam for 16 years. jurors will take that into account. they want to establish that he wasn't a rat but he is not taking the stand. >> kelly: you are a financial prosecutor and mercedes you have handled cases, as we are looking at this particular case, 60 people have testified. prosecution apparently has done its job. so what did does it leave for defense attorneys in terms of
1:44 pm
who they will bring to the stand? >> that is great point. they are going to have bring in character witnesses to talk about the life he had. he had new identity. he lived for a number of years, he was model citizen for number of years. bring them in, look he wasn't that bad a guy. it's almost a disconnect. you see this 83-year-old man, is that much of a terror -- and you read about how he killed these individuals. he actually tied them up, strangled, shot the others in the head. he tortured and killed these individuals. he actually shook the jurors up. >> the jurors were actually with tears and people inside the courtroom would leave crying from what they heard. descriptions about whitey. >> what do you when you are in trial on the defense side and you assume for the sake
1:45 pm
of argument they have proven the case and air into the mix, it's only going to get worse. there is no way to go. that is the situation on this trial. the other point mercedes made it's so interesting you have this guy that did horrific things and 83-year-old man in court. >> kelly: let's get back to the rule of law we have in this great nation of ours. you are innocent until proven guilty. so when the defense takes the stand, your basically saying what bulger won't take the stand. he himself could talk about his life as a model citizen. >> if he could. >> it begs the question on the crimes themselves. on the one hand as mercedes did for 16 years he was fine, but again the evidence and rule of law establishes that he did "a", "b" and "c" he is guilty. there is nowhere to go with it. >> you have to wonder why

counsel hand picked by president obama. >> watching jack lew bob and weave and invade chris wallace' legitimate questions today on fox news sunday was astounding, first of all, this is a strategy, you use the word phony scandal and the membership will say, wait, these are talking points, they are developing a strategy to say, let's deflect from the real scandal. four dead americans in benghazi, well, that's real. the i.r.s. thing? with due respect, there were a few left-leaning agencies that were targeted bit i.r.s. but the vast majority were conservatives. >> that is because it was a time when all the tax party groups were trying to get tax-exempt stated us. >> that is your story. 9 majority of groups that were scrutinized by the i.r.s. were conservative groups and everyone knows that. you can say the sky is down and
1:54 pm
the ground is up a lot but if you keep saying phoneness scandal and the president is in campaign mode, krauthammer was right, someone should tell president obama, you won. you won. >> the republicans do not have new ideas and they want to repeal and replace obamacare but they don't know how to replace it and everything is a scandal you cannot have any discerning ability to say what is a real scandal? the n.s.a. is a real scandal. >> there were not a new ideas on the economy from president obama last week of the. >> he has been consistent about what he will do for a long-term. >> i want to ask you what you said, you got in there, benghazi, four americans, dead. how is that a scandal? now is it not a scandal? >> what is the scandal? tell me the scandal. >> what happened the night? >> we invaded a country without a plan to have a government in place, we invaded a country we should not have gone into.

that. >> she said -- i tell you the scandal: the n.s.a. is a scandal look e-mails is a scandal or phone records is a scandal, having companies participate with the government and letting them see the information is a scandal. >> the i.r.s. is not a scandal? >> i have to wrap you up real quick. this is being call add bait and switch to review the real issues. >> the republican party whose numbers are plummeting and congress has numbers the lowest ever since numbers were taken, should be concerned about presenting the public with a real narrative. keep doing what you are doing and see how this works. >> the chairs are like the titanic. >> all numbers are bad. both bad. we need to work together. >> spirited debate, no doubt.

2:02 pm
american people from the president's plan to get the economy growing faster. the republican think their investigations of the i.r.s. in particular are producing real results. egyptive jordan said the key work is being done out of the limelight by committee investigators. we don't have any evidence directly but we continue to do depositions, the interviews and work up the chain of command and we now we know it is in the chief counsel's office. >> the i.r.s. chief counsel is one of only two political appointees to the i.r.s. and he is a long time democratic party contributor and a former lobbyist. he was a frequent visitor to the white house while the targeting was taking place. in the interview with treasury secretary chris wallace noticed that he reports to jack lew. >> there are 1,600 lawyers in the chief counsel office and there was in suggestion that this went to the one political person in that office. there is nod of it, there has
2:03 pm
been no evidence of it. >> wait. have you ask him? >> i am leading the investigation to the proper people who do investigations. i don't think it is appropriate for me to do the investigation. >> on "meet the press" he reiterated the targeting was a case of bad judgment and there is no evidence of political involvement. >> thank you with those details, doug. >> heather: growing fallout overseas the controversial nasa surveillance program. the house of representatives narrowly defeating a bill that would end the program by slashing funding and now lawmakers are speaking out about privacy concerns and the votes. peter dozency reports from washington, dc. >> the president's policy is not acceptable to members of his own party. we heard from several democrats this weekend upset that the white house is standing by while the n.s.a. collects phone records from every day american whose have not been charged with
2:04 pm
crimes. >> we should limit this data collection. the notion well collect all of the phone reports of everyone living in an area code on the offshore someone if that area code could be a suspect at later time goes way too far. >> in an op-ed, two senators say "the broad collection is not authorized under a straightforward interpretation of the patriot act or any other law. the white house ought to end this dragnet and sharpen its focus on the terrorists and spies who truly threaten our nation's security." however, national security will suffer if the n.s.a. stops collecting the data according to the republican chairman of the house of representatives intelligence committee. >> in this program, zero privacy violations, 54 violent terrorist attacks thwarted. that is a good record. >> another republican, senator chambliss, said he has been assured that no one at n.s.a.

2:07 pm
and the military restored him to power. now, there are reports that the interim government has granted the military the right to arrest fans, a power that potentially signals a massive crackdown on the muslim brotherhood that could come. a senior egyptian official said today that the protests must come to an end. secretary of state john kerry has called for restraint after the egyptian military should respect the right to peaceful assembly which have been ignored. supporters of the military coup that removed morsi from power justify the move as a way to ensure stability in egypt. so far it appears to have the opposite effect. kelly? >>guest: thank you, conor from the middle east bureau. >> heather: a thousand innates are on the run in benghazi, libya, with police saying they have managed to capture 100 of them, though, and the prime minister blaming local residents saying they stormed the prison

2:10 pm
church like his namesake was called. many in a state of ecstacy paying attention to the message. listen to what some had to say. i came to world youth day for a reason, to change the person, and learn a lot. pope francis communicates a message of simplicity and prior and this is really what the church needs. people who are simple and live for love. >> francis has been very much hands on, on this tour, and now he is saying this could be a pope not prepared to flinch at the real problems addressing the violence crackdown that government has had in brazil against those protesting against corruption. a rather political but, also, hugely successful visit for pope francis. >> it would seem so, the pope spreading the good news and giving that special message.

2:18 pm
getting a super-sized makeover. the commerce department is unveiling the results of an immense reevaluation of the economy from the great depression to the present having to do with our growing idea economy. here to explain it is c.e.o. and founding part of lexicon capital management. explain to us, first, what, exactly, is the g.d.p.? >> guest: it stands for gross domestic product, the sum total of the goods and services produced in this country. it is one thing we look at. we also look at consumer confidence and the storm and what we certainly look at and keep track of is g.d.p. >> heather: what are the changes being proposed? >> guest: we are going do change how we calculate g.d.p. to reflect the 21st century. those changes primarily fall into two camps in arts and
2:19 pm
technology. so this are a couple key things to remember before i explain how it affects both. that is, the new californias are going to be retrofit from the great depression to the present and americans will still be able to make apple to apple comparisons. >> heather: you are going to speak specifically how the changes affect both areas. >> guest: sure, so in terms of arts, it used to be that things like books and films were not included in g.d.p. but now under the new calculations they are seen as something that created lasting value. so, what we might enjoy like the daily news is considered only to have value the day it is produces which will not be included. a movie like star wars that was produced in the 1970's but still producing revenue, that will now be included. >> heather: that makes sense. >> guest: so that is that. now, technology, which is largely put into research and
2:20 pm
development, with a company called r&d, used to be counted as an expense in g.d.p. calculations but under the new californias this research and development and innovations that lead us to the next ipad or great technological discoveries will be something that creates lasting value and calculated as such under the new g.d.p. rules. respected moves from an "expense" to something that is thought as lasting value. >> heather: how does that affect what i refer to as kitchen table economy? i'm sitting there with my husband, my kids, how does this affect me? >> guest: when we look at g.d.p. numbers, they will initially look very healthy. you can say, okay, this is one thing to talk about at the kitchen table but in comparison, a nice thing is they are going back and calculating all of the
2:21 pm
g.d.p. from our country's inception of calculating it from the inexception based on the new formula. most kitchen tables do not talk about g.d.p. >> heather: because they do not understand how they are affected. by revising the way i is determined it will bolster optimism for the economy and that affected me? >> guest: the new numbers do reflect the 21st century and it is one way we can look at consumer confidence. we can also hook at employment numbers or the storm, so there are a number of things americans look at to say, how do i feel right now about our country and the path we are on and our growth. >> heather: thank you so much. we will see what happened next week when it starts, right? >> you may have noticed this, when you fill up recently the

2:28 pm
journal" and nbc poll finding 45 percent say he is doing good job and 50 percent say he is not. will the attention on the economy breathes life into the second term? bring in our political insiders to discuss this. john leboutillier, former republican congressman for new york, pat can pat can dallas former pollster for jimmy carter and doug schoen former pollster for bill clinton. we gentleman, before we get back to the polls let's talk about this new tact of talking about the economy, the president speaking just last week several times about the economy and i will show you the president speaking at university of missouri in this clip. >> an endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals cannot get in the way of what we need to do. >> that is the president speaking at the university of central missouri.
2:29 pm
gentleman. what do you say about this? anything new? >> a couple of things, this is the start of the 2014 mid-term election campaign. the president is using the same themes he used in the 2012 campaign, redistribution, class warfare, demonizing the republicans. in that soundbite he spoke to the issues of scandal which i think are quite real -- i.r.s., benghazi, n.s.a. he calls them phony scandals. this was to lay down a marker on the most important issue facing the country, the economy and job creation but it is a reprieve of campaign 2012. >> he did this in 2011 when the numbers were down, the same approach. now this phony scandal.
2:30 pm
this is outrageous, the democrats and the president who claim to take it seriously, have now said it is a funny scandal and the mess we have discovered, for a month, three national networks, nbc, abc and cbs had only one story last week on cbs, and not mentioned the i.r.s. we have no scandals being dealt with and today i watched jack lew and it and clear that his job is to cover up and stonewall. >> back in the time of next on when we were getting into watergate and the tapes came out, nixon was talking about using the i.r.s. to go after his political opponents. the democrats, running the house of representatives al qaeda put an article of impeachment to nail him for that for thinking about using the i.r.s. now we have in 2010, 2011 and
2:31 pm
2013, the i.r.s. targeting the president's opponents. this is a scandal of nixonian proportions. i am not saying obama was in on it. >> he met with the general counsel of the i.r.s. the day before they tightened up the criteria and he melt with the head of the i.r.s. workers union the day before they started the targeting. >> the 159 visits --. >> guys, i blame the republicans, not the media, not obama, i blame the republicans. they run the house of representatives, they should have a select committee with a big time lawyer maybe ted olson, elevate this thing to a major investigation. we. >> the american people care a great deal about that and benghazi and all of these scandals and the n.s.a. but as you said, the republicans are absent. >> there is no republican agenda. i defy anyone watching or
2:32 pm
thinking to articulate what the republicans stand for. they don't stand for tax reform. they don't stand for investigations. they don't stand for an alternative set of health care policies. bottom line, the republicans are missing in action. >> you unpacked a lot this this short amount of time from president obama launching into a 2013 campaign mode and we talked about the scandals and the fact that the president has alluded to the scandaled. actually, not alluded to them but has said they are phony scandals. let's get back to why you say this is a campaign issue he is raising. >> there was no serious attempt to talk about economic growth we, no serious attempt to put forward a bipartisan plan that the republicans could agree to, to create jobs, it was rhetoric, the same themes from the 2012 election. bottom line, nothing new, nothing to act on.
2:33 pm
>> why is he going in this direction? >> okay, they are in trouble and they don't know what they are gasoline to do and the republicans are stupid enough to fall for it again and that is what he does. he has a default position because that is all they know. >> we had the number unfortunately that was flipped around, his number is actually in the "wall street journal" poll 45 percent approve and 50 percent diagnosis approve and there it is, that is the second worst rating the "wall street journal" has ever had on president obama. >> the last one, august of 2011, after the disaster on the budget. >> how does this, as you see it, how does this resonate with the american people? especially getting ready to go into the august recess. >> hear me out, we are ready for the august recess. what will the american people do? >> pat is right, this is not going to change minds. what the obama campaign and it
2:34 pm
is a campaign, trying to do, through the white house, is to divide the country, to polarize, and make the argument that only by supporting class-based politics will the democratic base get mobilized and energized for the incoming election. >> can we put up the one from the "wall street journal" poll and nbc, the one about what do you think of your congress, would you throw every member of congress out including your own, right it is the highest ever recorded, the three of us believe, six out of ten said they would throw out my guy who helped my kid get in west point. >> we are seeing the cracks in
2:35 pm
the political class buttoning down the system so that sentiment we see cannot be copied politically. the people have in vis to do that but we saw in the n.s.a. vote in congress, we had a coalition of liberal democrats and libertarian conservative republicans would almost beat back the president we and the republican leadership on the question of the n.s.a. >> we will come back to that but we are drifting from john was talking about, the poll. there is an anti-incumbent fervor. >> that is right. i want to return to what pat was saying because bottom line, the system is now existing and operating to anticipate and bottle up the anger and is why wen so you do not have have a system that is about ready to implode. the air is coming out of the
2:36 pm
balloon. >> the men and women, we have seen that graph, the american people, find this stunning, we are ready to kick people to the curb because they are going to washington and not representing us or doing their job. not republicans are not doing their job and democrats are not, and you are saying the president is not, so, who is minding the shops? >> one of the hot items politically over the last 30 years has been this issue of term limits. right in we never really had these because the guy would vote in the term limits are members of congress themselves. the best term limits is that poll. if they really felt they were going to be removed a year from november, they are going to start listening. the power of the ballot. >> absolutely. the system has redistributed and worked things and made it financially -- doug has a book
2:37 pm
on this -- made it impossible for ordinary people to be heard. look at ridiculous debate we will have on the budget. >> hold that thought, don't let go of that, we will be right back. >> two political come backs are dominating about that, spitzer and anthony weiner looking scandals in the face. how are they doing in our political insiders are back with more after the break. weekdays are for rising to the challenge. they're the days to take care of business. when possibilities become reality. with centurylink as your trusted partner, our visionary cloud infrastructure and global broadband network free you to focus on what matters. with custom communications solutions and responsive, dedicated support, we constantly evolve to meet your needs. every day of the week. centurylink® your link to what's next.

2:43 pm
go into default over the issue of de-funding obamacare which they cannot do. meanwhile we have the established republicans cross road, karl rove people, all these people screaming at the republicans, don't do anything to try to stop obamacare, where is there a sensible middle? >> you have the president of the united states stating he will not negotiate. what does that say? >> pat is right: you can try to change, you can try to repeal or delay parts of obamacare, but you cannot decide you don't like legislation and not fund this. let me focus on the democrats, too, because we are people who see it from both sides. we have an entitlement crisis this this country, the deficit has been reduced this year, and long term entitlements are a huge problem for medicare and medicaid and social security. harry reid has said he will do
2:44 pm
