11:00 am
hour. even these guys in the state of wyoming have had it. by saying just north of wyoming. that is where we are. here is where we stand in d.c. we are hearing harry reid and mitch mcconnell do have a deal. senate leaders hope to have some sort of announcement before we hit the road eastern time. part of this deal would reopen the government through january january 15. a lot can happen. we will keep you up to the minute on all of this. there is much more in store as well including a nice stock market rallied on this hour of "markets now". here we go. dagen: here we go.
11:01 am
a triple digit loss yesterday. digit loss yesterday but all over the place, wild swings based on what washington wasn't was not getting done and now is getting done. connell: or may get done. tonight but now in a rally. nicole petallides at stock exchange talking about what? nicole: talking about washington, john boehner, lawmakers getting closer, you start to see the markets take off in a positive way. the sectors have up arrows whether it is drugs or banks or technology, nasdaq composite up 1%, the dow up 3% so you are seeing a great run end news across the board. bold is pulling back and the vix, the fear index is to the downside, nodding of nervousness. shares of bank of america
11:02 am
reporting third quarter profit. better loan quality, up 120% of $13.60. connell: the clock is ticking and news is breaking in washington. we heard from a senate aide in the last few minutes that a deal on the senate side is finalized. the nick peter barnes has the latest on what happens in the house as well. peter: we understand the text of legislation is done and we are waiting for an announcement from the democratic leader harry reid and senate republican leader mitch mcconnell on the deal and the way forward which may involve the house. let's talk about the deal points. this bill would reopen and fund the government through january 15th. it would extend the ddbt ceiling through feb. 7, would require incoming verification for
11:03 am
recipients, people who get subsidies for their health insurance in obamacare, this is an antifraud provision and would require a house and senate budget conference committee to work out a compromise on the 2014 budget and possible tax entitled reforms with a deadline in december. this hasn't been confirmed by john boehner's office but we are hearing from other sources that this may get started back in the house which as you know failed yesterday, house republicans in their effort to get something, legislation done to reopen the government can raise the debt ceiling crashed and burned. john boehner may actually do this first because if he does it allows the bill to proceed on a fast-track basis over in the senate and possibly it could get done tonight or by tomorrow so we are waiting for the senatorso to speak and we expect to hear something from john boehner.
11:04 am
dagen: we want to help vote? peter: it could be first. could be later today. the house is going to come in for legislative business at noon. the senate goes into shares session and nooo as well. we could see john boehner get this started after lunch time or sometime after. dagen: busy day, thank you for thatt the deadline to raise the debt ceiling is almost here, maybe tomorrow the treasury will pay -pall the bills that are due th day but that they will rise by november 1st and not enough cash on hand, it to pay what we know. and the economic policy project at a bipartisan policy center rejoins us. great to see you before, great to see you today. what do you make of the developments in washington so far? >> peter barnes had it exactly correct. the republicans in the senate
11:05 am
are being briefed on what the plan contains. after that, mr. mcconnell and mr. reed will announce the details of that agreement which are as peter outlined it. the third thing is the speaker will then go to his caucus and explain what the senate bill does. he knows he will not have all of his members voting for it but he has been pledged, it has been pledged to him by minority leader nancy pelosi and sidney lawyer, the minority whip the that they will provide enough democrats to make up for lost republicans and bill will pass, and this is important, if it passes in the house first, it does reduce the filibuster possibilities in the senate by about half. dagen: if a deal isn't signed, sealed and delivered and it arrives, has been given to us by the treasury department, as i
11:06 am
said maybe we can pay all of our bills tomorrow but what is the concern about this day if any? >> the concern is they hope to have a deal before the seventeenth because they have options this weekend wanted those treasury auctions to go well. the seventeenth is when jack lew says he has $30 billion on hand. the estimate is some place between the twenty-third and the first of november. he will not have enough cash on hand to pay the bills. it is impossible to really pin down that date because you have uneven cash flows in the treasury. dagen: we watched you talk about the short-term treasury debt. we watched the yield, the government has to pay a highest amount it has paid in four years just to get people to borrow from us in a very short run. what about the economic impact of just that? and all those businesses and
11:07 am
institutions that rely on short-term funding and keep short-term funding? >> like the real markettand money markets absolutely, interest rates are going to go up. they will go down on the short end but i doubt they will go down to where they were before this whole thing started and that is the keyy the last time we had this in 2011 interest rates were elevated enough that it cost the american taxpayer $1.3 billion in one year alone and approximately $19 million over a decade because we had a fiscal cciff frankly, not because anything happened. it is what didn't happen that caused rates to go up. dagen: i want you to answer this before we go. least teardown, stared at this debt ceiling deadline, we could pay the interest on the debt, everything else, and bills the leo, so what? what do you say? >> the economic impact of not paying our bills on time would
11:08 am
be enormous. it would probably be just as big as letting them go bankrupt. dagen: great to see you. thank you so much. come back anytime. even if we get this extension we are going to deal with this again next year unfortunately. thank you. connell: we are in market rally mode up 200 on the dow. the market betting this deal will get done before the deadline after reports in the last few minutes from the chief economist anthony chan joins us now. talking about what a day in d.c. and we are in new york dealing with what they are up to. two questions, one about what might happen to the economy in the future if something doesn't get done but first the current impact of what we have been throughh the political brinksmanship as they describe it, the nonsense in washington is the reason they warned us to get their act together in the united states.
11:09 am
has there been, the repo market and short-term yields has there been an economic impact already? >> there is no doubt we have seen economic impact. all we have to do is look at the daily consumer confidence readings and they have been coming down. we know that economic growth in the fourth quarter is going to be a little bit lower. perhaps 0.1% on an annualized basis for every week the government has been closed. some of that is ameliorated because the government workers have been somewhat promised that they will be paid when all of this is resolved and the workers that have been recall but the impact is not super but it is not minimal either. connell: might seem like a simplistic question before i ask about the future but why is there an impact? do you have a tangible example of how the shutdown or the debt ceiling hasn't been raised is hurting real people?
11:10 am
what is the impact that you can give us an example without going into economic statisti and what have you? >> the simplest way to answer is the way the gdp accounts are constructed when the government disclosed you are not creating government output so the gdp numbers have to come down and the level of uncertainty out there that is taking place, the higher rates, you saw the bill to the highest 35 basis, all of that has a cost. connell: the future, the probability has shifted more so in the last 15 minutes that something will get done today. you heard peter barnes reporting and that a moment ago reflected in the stock market rally of almost 200 points but we have seen deals that were almost done fall apart. what is the risk here economically if something were to fall through again today? >> believe it or not if you go
11:11 am
back historically of all the time the government has closed down, 17, 18, the negative impact on the equity market in the first five times compared to the last five times has come down so in the future there will be negative impact but you give people enough bad news they start getting used to. dennis: what about the debt ceiling? never happen that we reach the x date as it is called? >> that is new and uncharted territory. i hope we won't cross that but that will be another negative event if it were to occur but right now i think we have enough cash on hand to pay the queue upon payment that will be in the neighborhood of $6 billion. if we have $30 billion by october 17th don't lose sight of the fact that government revenuesswill be $100 billion between october 17th and october 31st. prioritization is challenging but not impossible. dennis: that is a good perspective that we could pay
11:12 am
the interest on the debt but other things might suffer. appreciate it. dagen: your final deadline of the year for filing your taxes was yesterday. there is some revenue coming. the irs not paying out the refunds that you get, extra cash may be. connell: it looks like we might not have to deal with this. dagen: if they get it done. twitter is ready to go public in the midst of all of this next month and that company picked the new york stock exchange. the latest on that decision. stuart: the furloughed fbi agents still on the job dealing with drug dealers and major blow in a big bust we will talk about coming up. dagen: how about more football on thursday night? the nfl not happy with ratings on its own network so another media outlet. first our cameras are asking what your message to congress is. >> the reality is both parties have been laying down on the
11:13 am
job. it is time to stop playing partisan politics. that is the source. start serving the people again. when we made our commitment to the gu, bp had two big goals: help theulf recover and learn from what happened soe cod be a better, safer. i can tell you - safety at the heart of erything we do. we've added cutting-edge like a new deeater well cap anwatch over all drilling moactivity twenty-four-seven.

11:15 am
11:16 am
connell: more news from washington d.c. in all speaker of the house john boehner. what are we hearing? peter: we just updated again, the senate does have a deal on ending the government shutdown, reopening the government, doing a budget resolution and raising the debt ceiling. we expect we will hear from the two senate leaders mitch mcconnell, republican leader and harry reid, the democratic leader, shortly here before noon but no decision has been made specifically on which house will do this first. there is speculation that they may have the house gophers, john boehner will put this to the floor. sorry, all this is happening so fast. i am looking at my blackberry. spokesperson for john boehner, mike deal says, quote, no decision has been made on how potential senate agreement could be voted on in the house.
11:17 am
in theory if the house does it first that would help make it go faster through the senate, limit the opportunities for a filibuster and in the house if john boehner brings it he will rely on democratic votes to get this done, since house republicans won't vote for this. that is where we stand. rich: that is new information because we are assuming the house would vote for a stand that could speed up the process of the point is let's be careful. we don't know. they haven't decided. we will be back to you. dagen: john boehner's spokesman, no decision which body goes first or the timing but the markets like what they see. 200 point gain on the dow moment ago and shares of apple and yahoo! are also in. wall street since the apple report cutting orders for the iphone 5 c, yahoo! banking on and colleague bob ipo. what is going on? nicole: imagine the 200 point
11:18 am
gain, looking at apple which cost $500 today on the news they are going to cut down the orders for the components that go into tte 5 see. that was the keeper of the two models. they have great demand for the 5s and apple holding the $500 market. that is good news you also have yahoo! on the move to the upside up 70%. a big stake in for -- users for a month are 15%, mobile users up 15% so good news for melissa meyer and there you have it, yahoo! up today on the news. connell: we will be back in a minute. speaking of tech, twitter, the stock exchange winning the coveted twitter listing as it broke with tradition and busted the trend of high-profile tech companies over the years, you think of them listing on the
11:19 am
nasdaq. dagen: after what facebook went through it would be taking the flyer if it did. what is going on? >> the stock exchange emerged victorious when listing their version of the nasdaq. sources say the road show will begin oct. 28 and analysts expect pricing on november 14th and big listing on november 15th. they told fox business, quote, this is a decisive win. we are grateful for twitter's confidence in our platform and look forward to partnering with them. you may remember the nasdaq, the ceo may last minute hitch a few weeks ago and twitter hq, they said all the nasdaq which twitter well as they pursue the initial public offering. nice words from them. any updated file and we learned two important things, twitter post a loss of $64.6 million in the third quarter, triple its loss year on year but good news, revenue was up $168,600,000 from
11:20 am
$82.3 million which was the same growth rate as the previous quarter and updated filings revealed exactly how much cheryl casone and risk-management 17.9%, jpmorgan 10.3, smart capital six.8, benchmark 6.6, union square ventures 5.9% and about 5% for global. other numbers jumped out at me, user growth increased by 6% but that is down 7% as a rate in the second quarter and ten% a quarter before. that ad revenue is up, down 75%. connell: tweeting about the sea and twitter in our life. dagen: the company still losing money and your e-mail under attack, the nsa snooping on your address book. can't make it up. judge andrew napolitano here to get fired up about that. dennis: better finger, dagen

11:24 am
dagen: much has happened in the last 25 minutes in washington.
11:25 am
>> senate republicans are actually meeting behind closed doors. and mitch mcconnell has cut with the democratic leader in the senate, harry reid, and this would reopen the government to keep it funded into january, raise the debt ceiling until february and require the house and senate to come together in a conference committee and hammer out some kind of compromise budget deal on the 2014 budget and other fiscal issues, entitlements and all that, and we expect to hear from mitch mcconnell and harry reid possibly in the next hour and we're also waiting for confirmation of who is going to go first. the house may go first. john boehner in the bring this
11:26 am
into his sugar first because it would allow the senate to consider the legislation on a lot more expedited basis, limit the filibuster opportunities but if john boehner does that, he would need a lot of democratic votes to get across the finish line in that house before sending it to the senate as a lot of his members are not going to vote for this piece of legislation. dagen: peter barnes. connell: charles payne is trying as we are to adjust all this. and perfect as we know them, we are hearing the went through everything we are eating in the last half hour or so. there is concern in the short-term debt markets, the repo markets, rates went a little bit, now we're betting on a deal. make the money on this? charles: we feel pretty good. a lot of stoccs at 52 week highs, the bias shifted to the upside but never collapsed.
11:27 am
maybe a little spike in the yield and all that if you pull at 50 chart and all these things it was a small blip on the screen. connell: nobody thought we would do that, not nobody but people were making bets they would not -- whatever the x date is. charles: big part of that the role as well. the interesting thing is we got a convenient excuse politically and economically, they griped about the fact that this two week drama might slow things down a little bit. we have the political excuse, we didn't have the jobs report number which would be 150,000, nothing to do with this at all so many weak data we get between now and the end of the year this is a convenient excuse like the weather. dagen: i saw the ceo of hyundai talking about car sales being hit, impacted by the shutdown put you did -- there will be economic impact.
11:28 am
you could use it as an excuse but you got short-term lending rates for the federal government that ought five your high and that means those are rates that some corporations would have to pay. you have hundreds of thousands of people have been furloughed. that will have an impact. charles: hundreds of thousandof. it will have some impact but also less government spending is one of the things a lot of people think is the most positive story in this economy. even the president continues to brag about how he lowered the deficit by a large percentage not saying exactly where the source of that is which is sequestration mostly. there are other economic positives. the next sequestration was a planned event. you could factor that in but when you are talking about things that happened at a moment's notice that people were not expecting to happen, bigger economic impact. charles: if you are investing, too weak economic impact, if you
11:29 am
are being that myopic about the investment you should be a dane traitor because ultimately all of these trends whether it is automobile sales, good comparison for those, will have a hard time having the same growth we had in the last year. connell: more deadlines. dagen: if you acts like this has no impact, the people in washington will do it again. charles: january or february. connell: that part -- hearing about this deal to get back to today. on the senate side with leaders of the senate coming to an agreement. we hope to hear from them harry reid and mitch mcconnell, before we get to the top of the next hour coming gibson. dagen: making nice maybe. we shall see. the nsa tapping into contact list.

11:35 am
dagen: at the site coming to a deal. no decision has been made about how or when an agreement could be voted on in the house. here with reaction and much more is brett baer. this is a tick tock. just your reaction so far as to what has gotten done or has not gotten done in d.c. today. >> will take what they agree to originally. essentially, they will jam it down the house broke. we are at the back end of it deadline. speaker boehner said he will put it on the throat.
11:36 am
it will be much easier if it starts in the house. they take the senate bill, john boehner puts it on the floor, he passes it with majority democratic votes. if it starts in senate, it has to go through this whole archaic process where anyone could stand up and delay it five-six days. dagen: are you surprised, this is a date issued by the treasury department, october 7 team -- october 17. are you surprised we have gotten so close to this date? >> no. congress is in this mode where they have to have a backstop. they have to have something
11:37 am
where they will go up against christians or they will go act. this was it. evens is being questioned. there are many people out there that think with the tax reeeipts coming in that that would pay the bills they wanted to pay really up to november 21. dagen: let's just assume that something gets done and the government reopens. the debt ceiling now moves to february 7. is there any reason to believe that next time will be different?
11:38 am
>> no. i do not think that there is anything to indicate that things will be different. what i think we'll be telling is if they go into this conference committee and they really try to iron out big-ticket items. that is really the test for going forward. if they get it right innthat conference committee, may not have to have a battle over raising the debt limit. they will be able to draw down the numbers and they may not have to raise the limit. dagen: let's hope. it was great to see you. connell: we will be watching the house democrats. they will have a meeting at

have to call upon our spirituality to get us through periods of difficulty. i speak, i can't speak for the entire senate twos say how much we admire this good man who is a good counselor and leader in the senate as much as anyone that serves in this party. cheryl: we wanted to listen into any comments coming in from the floor. he was talking about the senate chaplain. once again, we are maturing what is happening on the senate floor. if we get any news coming out of the house, we do not know, it if
12:05 pm
the senate or house will act first. we are watching and waiting. this is all about what is happening in washington, of course. dennis: this is really dramatic. i like it. it is the highest percentage in more than two decades. it goes along with the 74% of people that want to see most members of congress lose next fall. joining me now, we have former republican congressman from michigan and former democratic senator from arkansas. q for being with us today. do you think that the lasting damage to politicians from both parties will stay? >> i think people are definitely, they are upset.
12:06 pm
they are seeing their leaders in washington, they are stuck. instead of doing the kinds of things that they need. it is probably very similar to something that they talked about for-five weeks ago. it will help our economy to have some certainty up until then. they need more certainty. there is so much more that they can be doing. the markets do build in a certain amount of faith into what they do. seeing them react today, i think, you see it does matter what happened in washington. i hope that the budget committees will do a conference. dennis: .is kind of a filibuster answer. thank you, senator.
12:07 pm
have you ever seen it as bad? within the own republican party. >> i have never seen it that that. the important thing now is will this be a learning experience for the president, house republicans and democrats? we reformed welfare. we cut taxes. we restrained spending. most importantly, the american people that it'd and we balanced the budget. dennis: how much of the blame here go on the actual president himself?
12:08 pm
>> i think that there is plenty of blame to go around for everybody. we work together. what happened was after that we came together. we figured things out. we really worked to solve a problem. dennis: do you think that the outlook now is for that to happen? they will have the people understanding that at some point you do not get everything you want. you just have to work with each other be five does it get even worse from here on or have both parties learned their lesson? >> i hope that they have learned their lesson. republicans will hopefully
12:09 pm
learn, if we do not have a fit position and we are divided, we will get nothing. maybe we will get 50-60% of what we want. dennis: for now, we are getting kind of sick of all of this. thank you for being with us. cheryl: markets are also focused on earnings. it looks like americans like their snacks. pepsico beat the street with third-quarter earnings. i will go behind with hugh johnson. dennis: twitter bombshell. we will get more on the impact and implications coming up. we are taking to the streets asking for your message to congress. what some of you had to say. >> i think that wasting.

12:15 pm
cheryl: i want to ask you about your thoughts about what we are seeing in washington today. i am assuming you are a little concerned about the debt ceiling deadline. >> ultimately, we do worry about the consumer. in certain pockets where federal workers have been furloughed, that will ultimately have an affect. the reality of it is, i think the parties have got and down and the in the business of getting a deal done. >> certainly, business has been strong. on the other side of this,

12:17 pm
pepsico is performing well. investors seem to appreciate that. cheryl: the competitor told analysts that the diet beverage products is under pressure. people are questioning artificial sweeteners. you also have the sugar police. how do you respond to what coca-cola president said about artificial sweeteners? >> one of the advantages that pepsico has was to build a great portfolio for carbonated beverages and noncarbonated beverages. we have gatorade and tropicana, all of which are doing extremely well. as carbonated soft drinks come under pressure, the others do
12:18 pm
more strongly. we certainly feel good about that. cheryl: you, i am so sorry, i have to interrupt you. thank you. >> the compromise we reach will provide our economy with the stability it desperately needs. it is never easy for two sides to reach consensus. this time was lay hard. after weeks spent facing off partisan divide, our country came to the brink of disaster. in the end, political adversaries set aside their differences and disagreements to prevent that disaster. i think the republican leader for reaching this important
12:19 pm
agreement. it was essential to pass both tours of congress. as part of our agreement, this legislation strikes leaders to a budget conference committee. it will set our country on a long-term path to fiscal sustainability. i know that some say that will be hard. i think we can get it dooe. the committee members had open minds. we are considering every option known or how. this conference committee, led by chairman murray is discussing
12:20 pm
different views this fund the government through january 15. during which time, we can work towards a longtime budget agreement that prevents these frequent crises. fingers or blame. this is a time of reconciliation. i look for to working with my colleagues on both sides is. what we have done is send a message to americans the united
12:21 pm
states was up to its obligations. congress must return to its most important job. i appreciate all of this. i am optimistic that the spirit of compromise has taken root in the senate over the last few days and will indoor. i do know that senator mcconnell and i have sought in very serious discussions. we will do everything we can. >> the republican leader. challenging few weeks for congress and the country. it is my hope that today we can put some of those most urgent
12:22 pm
issuee behind us. we began a series of conversations about a way to get the government reopened and prevent the fall. i am god that we will be able to do both of those things later today. crucially, i am also confident that we will be able to announce we are capping the government's budget. it has been a top priority for me and my colleagues throughout this debate. it has been worth the effort. some have suggested that we break that promise. some say washington need to spend more. we need to raise taxes. we need to tax our way to prosperity and balance.
12:23 pm
what they showed is that washington actually can cut spending. because of this wall, that is just we have done. for the first time since the korean war, the first time since the korean war government spending has declined for two years in a row. the first time in 50 years. we are not going back on this agreement. there is a lot more we need to do to get this nation's fiscal house in order. hopefully once we have gone past the drama of the moment, can work on it. for now, let's not understate it. the largest reduction bill since 1981 that did not include a tax hike. preserving this law is
12:24 pm
critically important to the future of our country. throughout this debate, the public has rightly been focused on obamacare, for good reason. this law is killing jobs and driving up premiums. it is a design of even worse things to come. the refusal to delay it reflects the stubborn obsession that will do untold damage to our country. republicans remain determined to appeal this terribbe law. for today, the release we hope for is to reopen the government. avoid default and protect the historic cuts we achieved under the budget control act. it is far better than what some had thought.
12:25 pm
it is time for republicans to unite behind our crucial goals. cheryl: a bipartisan deal has been reached. what you saw on your screens senator ted cruz. i believe he is still speaking. >> i thought it was interesting reading in the papers much speculation about whether we may delay the vote. my focus is on the substance. what are we doing.
12:26 pm
the united states senate and the washington establishment is doing nothing to provide relief. >> you have a lot of fellow republicans downright angry. here we are almost three weeks later. they never thought it would work. here we are reopening the government after a lot of losing political warfare internally. you got nothing for it. >> i disagree with the premise of that. months ago, when the effort to defined obamacare began, they scoffed that the american people. we saw first of all, millions upon millions of americans rising up across this country.
12:27 pm
we saw the house of representatives taking courageous stance, listening to the american people. that was a remarkable victory to see the house engage in april -- unfortunately, the senate chose not to follow the house. in particular, we saw a real division among senate republicans. i would point out that had senate republicans united and supported house republicans, the outcome of this, i believe, would have been very, very different. it does give a path going forward. i believe the house will continue to listen to the american people. lots of people in washington love to focus on the politics.
12:28 pm
it is unfortunately the game of this town. what matters more is all of the people across this country who are hurting right now. who are getting in the mail a notification that the healthcare they are known were lying on, that it is being canceled because of obamacare. president obama promised the american people that it would lower health care premiums. i would venture to say that every person across the country have seen the exact opposite beard everyone sees the premiums going up and up and up. if you like your health insurance, you can keep it. we now know that statement was flat-out categorically false. people all over this country are losing their health insurance.
12:29 pm
people at ups, they were all losing the insurance. the focus in my view should not be on the politics of washington. the politics of washington at the end of the day does not matter. we should respond to the very real harms that obamacare is causing. thank you very much. cheryl: senator ted cruz. dennis: makes you wonder if they can deliver. cheryl: the story goes over to the house representatives.
12:30 pm
what are they saying at this point? rich: we do not know who is going to vote. they are still deciding procedure in all of this. he says that he will not hold up this vote. what that does is open a path in the u.s. senate. they can actually get something out of the u.s. senate very quickly. if no other senators agree, which i am not sure if you could say that for certain, you could pass a bill out of the senate first, get it over to the house quickly. we do not know vote totals here in the house yet. happen once the bill gets over
12:31 pm
here. if the house will start first there's a lot of different political angles at play. another one, you did mitch mcconnell trying to claim victory on this one. as the shutdown got longer. begin to see democrats demand things. what started to happen last few days is democrats' demand the sequester, automatic spending cuts, those spending cuts be increased, the spending be increased, mitch mcconnell saying defense of those spending cuts is a victory for republicans. cheryl: rich edson on capitol hill following the twists and turns in the pingpong between the senate and house. dennis: stocks dipping back public comments, stocks on the floor of the stock exchange, nicole petallides, doused a lot. nicole: some finger-pointing, to get this done ahead of the deadline. at the same time you can really feellthe tension is coming out
12:32 pm
pf washington. we held on to a nice gain. the dow is up a full percentage point, up 1.1%. the nasdaq composite, all three major averages looking great, 170 for the dow, it was up 200 points earlier. you have a great guest coming up when talking about housing for the national associatton of homebuilders. and how they're bearing on a day when retailers, banks, transports, the oil service index have up arrows. and build a conference drop in the last month in october. and we have a lot of things happening, everything, inventory being available to a certain extent but some home buyers too word taken aback by higher prices they were faced with. we brought it up for you but they have up arrows much like this market overall and as we continue to watch the politics in washington, back to you. dennis: thanks very much.
12:33 pm
cheryl: home builder drag joining us in a fox business exclusive is the ceo of the national association of homebuilders. coming out and talking about the shutdown your reaction to the news on the senate side, bipartisan compromise to end the shutdown, and pave the nation's bills. >> my reaction is like most americans we are watching more closely, the will industry, the whole country, drop high drama in washington, more like a comedy. we're glad they're taking an interim step. hopefully the spirit of bipartisanship which you never hear in this town anymore will take root and will solve the problem long term. it is the right baby step in the right direction. cheryl: one thing builders that in the report, there was a decline in a moment the fact
12:34 pm
that there is a lack of housing starts, information, not getting the government data, the builders are not getting the data but you have done your own data, your own survey the best you can. where are we with housing starts? you all we have right now. >> i am sorry about the only thing we have but we are estimating 1,000 starts. is just an estimate. we annuity access to the totality of data that the government does so this is the best thing we can put out because all sectors of the economy are watching us and it is a conservative estimate but a solid and defensible one. cheryl: the question is after the shutdown are you concerned about our builders concerned about the consumer about home buying public? interest-rate elevated. those interest rates don't go down now we have to figure out what the fed is going to do, are builders nervous traffic will fall? >> we are always nervous about interest rates, we are the most
12:35 pm
interest-rate sensitive sector of the economy but if you put it in perspective for the long term over historical averages interest rates are relatively low and if they settle lower than this and that is the new normal ultimately that will be ok but everything depends in the next three month. cheryl: we got the from the mortgage bankers association and purchase applications. that is no surprise to your members especially the -- your chief economist said mortgage rates heading higher plus the shutdown is still a major -- a major issue for builders. can we move past that or will we be feeling ill effects from the shutdown over the next several weeks as interest rates stay higher? >> i am afraid it -- the reopening of the government, the agreement to do negotiations put pressure on the economy and our sector in particular over the course of the next three months.
12:36 pm
it will level off a little bit but the american consumers and american business will be watching closely to see if indeed there will be a bipartisan compromise. cheryl: i mentioned perspective traffic, and the 50 number which is the negative positive ratio we look at your report but also what we are seeing cross the country. in the midwest and the south do you think that will continue because of the higher prices in the northeast and the situations we are seeing with prices in california? where are we geographically? >> the midwest and south are less susceptible to short-term blips on the radar screen either up or down. you watch them as the baseline and when things are going really well and really badly the northeast and west particclarly california and arizona are probably more dramatic indicators than steady indicators. cheryl: a lot of investment dollars. thank you for giving us the only
12:37 pm
data we have today, we appreciate it, see you next month. dennis: permits to close parks the shutdown is having a big impact. i don't know if we will have those details. what have we got? cheryl: i want to hear about the film industry. also, more of what you had to say about congress. >> is really a drag. friends and family around the globe asking what is going on here and they are worried if it grabs on it will affect the economy.an lbur... ...amelia... neil and buzz: for teachi us that you can't create the future... by clinging the past. and with that: you're history. instead ofooking behind... delta is looking beyond. 80 thousand us investing billions... in everything from the bes ex. to the finest comforts above. we're not simply saluting history...

12:43 pm
starting to see that start to come down a little bit. reaction on the floor lot of traders are tired of this. and we are not driving to these% higher levels. perhaps they want to wait to see the details of the deal, how long this is going to go and a lot of traders are saying once we get the initial relief that the deal is done markets may go the opposite way anyway. they are tired of this. one positive thing we are getting out of this deal from the bullish side is even with the deal right now we are going to see a lot of q e. cheryl: we got that right now definitely. let's bring in allen vowed as on the floor of the stock exchange. same question to you, we are seeing an equity rally. not much movement when we got the finality which was the statement from mitch mcconnell. we are up 187. is this as far as we go?

12:46 pm

12:57 pm
that has already harmed middle-class families, american businesses and our country's economic standing in the world. the president applauds be peer read and minority leader mcconnell for working together to forge this compromise and encourages congress to act swiftly to end lists shutdown and protect the full faith and credit of the united states of america. >> that means he supports decisions that are included in that, opening the government? >> he does. he believes this agreement achieves what is necessary in terms of reopening the government and removing the threat of default and the brinksmanship we have seen, and again we haven't seen legislation moves through either house at this point so we're not issuing an official statement of administration policy but he lookssforward to congress acting
12:58 pm
so that he can a sign legislation that will reopen the government and remove this threat from our economy. >> is he confident the senate and the house will vote on thii measure today? >> we leave parliamentary procedures to congress. we obviously hope that each house will be able to act swiftly because we are all ready on day 16 i think, correct me if i'm wrong, of a wholly unnecessary shutdown of government with real consequences for real people. and we are obviously very close to the point beyond which the united states treasury no longer has the authority to borrow new money to meet our obligations. as soon as possible is be essentially the recommendation we have from here. >> are there any operations or
12:59 pm
procedures that are in place today to prepare for the possibility that congress cannot pass this measure today? >> the treasury is the place that would answer questions like that. what i can tell you is what jack lew has made clear in his testimony and his letter to congress, that the treasury department will exhaust borrowing authority at the end october 17th and beyond that point the treasury would have only cash on hand and would not be able to borrow new money to meet obligations. >> how confident that the house will pass this deal? >> we are not putting odds on anything? we are applauding leaders of the senate. and reaching the agreement they reached and houses of congress to act swiftly.
1:00 pm
