on our broadcast tonight, danger zone for the u.s. economy as this dead lock in washington now threatens to pull it down. there are questions about the u.s. credit rating with just over a day to go now until the deadline. outrage over the events that led a young girl to take her own life. and who the local sheriff is blaming for her suicide. tonight, a wake-up call for all parents. acts of bravery, caught in an ambush, caught on camera, an american hero who led his team through grave danger as tonight his team receives the highest military honor in the land. and making a difference, a great story of a coach who is teaching students what caring
6:31 pm
really means. nightly news begins now. good evening, this was to be expected as the hour nears, but a major credit agency has put the credit rating of the united states of america on a negative ratings watch. just last night, we came on the air reporting that hopes were high for a deal, things were moving. that collapsed today in a pile of noise and hurt feelings in washington. the government has been shut down for 15 days. the debt ceiling deadline is just over 24 hours away now. the world is watching and the financial markets are clearly watching. and profiles in courage are in short supply tonight in washington. we have it all covered beginning again tonight with the sorry state of affairs in congress, kelly o'donnell has spent yet
6:32 pm
another day covering it. >> reporter: good evening, brian, confusion and being paralyzed are all i can say right now. they had a deal and then quickly scrapped it as speaker boehner said tonight they would not go along, the senators tell me they don't know how it will end. how did we go from this just last night? >> i'm very optimistic. >> reporter: to this today. >> and it is nothing more than a blatant attack on bipartisanship. >> reporter: hopes fell on a deal. when the house republicans rejected a bipartisan senate compromise. mr. speaker, can you guarantee that congress won't go past the deadline and push us into default? >> listen, i have made clear for months and months that the idea of default is wrong. and we should not get anywhere
6:33 pm
close to it. >> reporter: but time is running out fast, and the mood is so sour that clergy sang hymns as they walk from one lawmaker's offers to another, praying for a solution. behind these closed doors here, here in the basement of the capitol, the gop held the team meeting, and that is when speaker boehner found out he didn't have enough to make a deal. they wouldn't back down, demanding changes to obama care. >> oh, my gosh, we've lit up the obama care, we've made it crystal clear to the american public that we stand with them on obama care. >> reporter: democrats stood at the white house today. >> make no mistake, the bill republicans are putting on the floor today is a decision to default. >> reporter: why the urgency? congress sets a limit known as the debt ceiling for how much the government can borrow. the current limit is $17.6
6:34 pm
trillion, like ordinary americans do with their household budgets, the treasury department can keep moving money around to help, but it stops at midnight tomorrow. if congress fails tomorrow, america could default. nbc got a look at both sides looking for compromise. and john mccain begged democrats to stop bashing speaker boehner for the sake of getting a deal. >> so let's stop this. let's stop it, sit down, consider the speaker's proposal. >> reporter: but at this point, the gop leadership doesn't have a proposal on the table. the president has been mostly watching from the side looiline calling the gop strategy a bad strategy, and senior officials say we are now at great risk of falling into that financial peril as we get closer to default, brian. >> well, running out of things to say and ways to say it.
6:35 pm
thank you, kelly o'donnell. we're seeing the crisis play out on wall street, stocks took a hit today, all three major indexes were down, and as we mentioned at the top of the broadcast we're getting the first signs of serious concern in the credit ratings market. the fitch ratings agency has put the united states triple a rating on a possible downgrade if of course this doesn't get resol resolved. andrew, the public is now aware they are playing with fire, and they're playing with company money, our money. what happens if this happens? >> if this happens, we are -- the 2008 financial crisis will look like child's play if we actually go into extra inni inningin inningininnings. if we default or even get close
6:36 pm
to the possibility of defaulting, all of our assets will skyrocket, if somebody is going to loan you a dollar and they think they won't get paid back when they should get paid back they charge you more. and that will impact everything, how much money the country has, a 1 percentage point increase is a $20 billion cost annually, that is money no longer going to goods and services for the taxpayers. it will go towards interest payments, your mortgage payment will go up. that is what we're talking about here, and it will be global. >> on that note, i guess we'll be checking back in with you tomorrow night. do you think this is ninth inning? >> i think we're in the ninth inning and i hope we don't go into extra innings, i am hoping we don't. >> because of these clashing extremes in washington right now, it is easy to believe the same political divide exists in cities and towns and neighborhoods all across our country. and might just define our country and our politics these
6:37 pm
days. but nbc news and esquire magazine have partnered on a new survey of our current political landscape that suggests we are not exactly that. and in fact, according to a data we are still a nation with a wide political center. our report on that from our white house chief correspondent and political director, chuck todd. >> reporter: go to any neighborhood in the country and you will find what we found in our new survey. americans are a lot more pragmatic in their political views than washington politicians give them credit for. you have been conditioned to look at blue and red, but that is not what you are, a new survey found we could all use a new pair of 3-d center. a majority of the country, 51% actually falls in the middle lane of american politics.
6:38 pm
the hard left lane is just 21%, and the hard right lane is only slightly bigger at 28%. >> what is happening in washington is there is polarization, that is not necessarily what is happening in the country. >> reporter: the center is as diverse as the country and basically fall into four categories, the mini van moderates are are in the suburbs, the center lives on the coast, while the most cynical and sometimes apathetic group, largely under 40. emily robless, an international businesswoman, is a lot like the middle. >> i don't think i fit into a box. >> reporter: she is with the 53% who favor gay marriage, but also is part of the 7% who think affirmative action should end. >> you should be accepted into college, not on your heritage or the color of your skin. >> reporter: culturally, this is a live and let live group.
6:39 pm
52% are okay with legalizing marijuana, but 79% believe that government is spending too much money. this woman sums up the attitude toward both major parties. >> i have just come to expect that i don't fit. i don't fit in either party. so i have almost become comfortable in the middle. >> reporter: you know, brian, we asked a couple of major political consultants, david axelrod, mike murphy for the republicans, to analyze the data, here is what mike murphy said, all of congress should be listening to that. and check with us at nightly news. >> i love hearing the boxes that the pollsters insist on putting us in. >> we at least have more. >> chuck todd, thank you as always. one of these issues we just heard about was in the news today, specifically ending
6:40 pm
affirmative action. today, the u.s. supreme court agreed to answer the question can voters in any given state vote to ban the practice? our justice correspondent pete williams with us tonight from outside the court. good evening, pete. >> reporter: brian, good evening, the supreme court has ruled before that colleges can choose to use affirmative action, now it seems prepared to rule that voters in a state have the power to ban it. demonstrators outside the court urged it to uphold an amendment passed by michigan voters in 2006, ending affirmative action in the state. the justice attacked it saying that one of the sponsors would bring back segregation. she said it appears to have done just that. but one justice said do whatever you can to have diversity without racial preferences. judging from today's argument, the court seems headed for a ruling that would allow
6:41 pm
affirmative action bans in michigan and several other states to stand. >> pete williams, thank you. it was an emotional afternoon at the white house as a former army captain became the 79th living recipient of the medal of honor, u.s. army captain william swinson was honored for his heroism and his complete disregard for his own safety. during the war in afghanistan, some of it was captured on camera. president obama said swinson was an example of what americans can be at their best. >> reporter: september 2009, a medi-vac helicopter, army captain will swinson guides the chopper to a landing, in one of the worst battles of the army. he and his men walked into a deadly ambush.
6:42 pm
>> if you tried to get up and move, you could have bullets at your feet. >> reporter: he led his troops as they ran into the kill zone and rescued the wounded and searched for missing marines. >> you can never allow a service member to be taken hostage, alive or dead. you bring them home and that is what we did. >> reporter: swinson desperately radioed for help, but army commanders refused to provide combat helicopters or reinforcements. an army investigation later found those commanders were negligent, leading directly to the loss of life. the four americans were later found dead. >> you could clearly see they had been putting up a hell of a fight. >> reporter: swinson bitterly blames their death on other reas reasons, not soldiers, a helmet cam captures ken westbrook being helped by swinson helped to the
6:43 pm
helicopter. in a flash, he gives him a kiss. >> in the middle of the war, you kiss your fellow soldier, why? >> i wanted to make it clear to him, he had done good. you're going home. >> it sounds like you were surprised to see you would do that. >> yes, but he was my soldier. >> but you're glad you did it? >> absolutely. absolutely. >> reporter: westbrook died a month later. discourage discouraged, swinson quit the army two years ago, but is now working to return to active duty and the brotherhood of soldiers. nbc news, the pentagon. we also wanted to show you another photo of another heroic american service member that is getting a lot of circulation and comment on the web. it is a photo of army ranger josh hargiss, wounded last week in the attack in afghanistan that killed four members of his unit. he is being awarded the purple heart in the hospitals of this photo, a ceremony his commander
