points, which has slowed home sales. an average of 550 more a month than a year ago based on a median priced house of $425,000. what does higher interest rates mean for consumers? >> so the real direct impact is usually felt with short-term borrowing. that's usually a credit card. but it can actually impact longer term interest rates as well. and those rates can mean that perhaps you pay more for even a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. the experts say if you're considering buying a house, you probably don't want to wait for the interest rates to go back down because it may be a while. after tomorrow's expected hike, the fed will likely forecast additional large rate hikes through the rest of the year. norah? >> meg oliver, thank you. well, today a somber ceremony was held in buffalo, new york, marking one month since ten people were shot to death in a supermarket. the 18-year-old suspect is accused of targeting his victims because they were black. and today breakthrough in congress.
