in a row yesterday. the dow was down 39. the nasdaq down -- dow down 49. nasdaq down 9. chrysler is reluctantly preparing for an initial public offering of some shares. the plans for the ipo come after chrysler failed to reach an agreement on the value of the stock by the trust run by the uaw. the trust pays healthcare costs for 130,000 retirees. the trust would get the proceeds from the ipo. the calendar my say its autumn but things are heating up in washington where congress is wrangling over funding the government. they have to figure this out. let's find out where and how the debate could impact the economy and your retirement savings. with more on that cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger joins us. tell us where do negotiations stand now, jill? >> reporter: okay. it's a bit like a ping pong match. last week the house passed a bill that keeps the government open for business. but it eliminated funding of the affordable care act. now, this week the senate is
5:44 am
expected to restore healthcare funding. then send a stand-alone continuing resolution to fund the government back to the house. so now your neck doesn't hurt but you can see how quickly this could get ugly. it could lead to a partial government shutdown in exactly a week. that's the start of the new budget year. then right after that, the nation will likely reach its borrowing limit. that's called the debt ceiling. $16.7trillion will get there in mid-october so it's going to be crazy down in d.c. >> i guess so. take us through the path. the last time the government shut down in '95 and '96, what happened. >> reporter: those two shutdowns one in november of '95 then from december to january of '96 shaved a .5% of growth from the nation's gdp. but funny thing, the stock market actually eked out some small gains but let's remember we were in the beginning of a big bull market rally and a technological revolution. today the economy is weak and we are not sure we'll fare
5:45 am
quite, as well. >> what about recent congressional battles? what effect have they had? >> if we look back to sequestration, a lot of people say that that caused annualized growth to slow down in the 4th quarter of last year and in the 1st quarter of this year that was in preparation for sequestration. the good news is the economy did absorb the federal cuts. we grew by 2.5% in the 2nd quarter. probably about by 2% in the 3rd quarter. and the stock market has soared this year up nearly 20%. but when we look at that debt ceiling debate back in 2011, economic growth really did stall out. the stock market fell by 17% after the last debt ceiling debate. so i think there's a big risk today that congressional brinksmanship or a prolonged shutdown could really shake investor confidence to lead to uncertainty. that would the know be good for the stock market. not good for our retirement savings. to help you prepare for the
5:46 am
debt ceiling part, go to debt ceiling part deux. >> let's figure it out. [ laughter ] >> jill schlesinger, thank you so much. have a great day. >> it works both ways. thank you. well, we have some new details about the washington navy yard shooter this morning. aaron alexis lied about a previous arrest. investigators at the time of his hire also deleted any reference alexis's use of a gun in that arrest. alexis also did not disclose debt problems he had. the gap if the records allowed him to work at the navy yard where he killed 12 people last week. and in chicago two men now behind bars with the mass shooting that injured 13 people including a 3-year-old yesterday. the gunmen reportedly opened fire with an assault rifle at a basketball game. the governor of illinois is considering bringing in the national guard to combat violence. and in colorado, one person still missing presumed dead after last week's massive

flooding. 79-year-old woman whose house was swept away by the big thompson river was found dead on a riverbank nearby bringing the number of dead to 8 people. vice president joe biden was in colorado yesterday. he viewed the devastation from a helicopter before meeting with some of the disaster workers in that state. the winner of last week's powerball jackpot has claimed his prize and this is no shock. the $400 million man from south carolina wants to remain anonymous. >> who can blame him? >> for good reason, right? the man stopped to get gas at the murphy express last wednesday in columbia and his wife told him to buy some hot dog buns. the store didn't sell buns but after seeing the powerball prize he bought $20 in lottery tickets instead and this is only his second time playing the lottery. >> beginner's luck. is that what it takes, hot dog buns? >> that's all it takes. >> lawrence and i have been trying for weeks. i think we won 4 bucks. >> i think we won 2 bucks in the office pool. >> i didn't even think we won
5:48 am
