When it comes to resolving the debt ceiling crisis, Congress is the equivalent of a skunk with its head in a jar of Skippy peanut butter. (4:56)

SIDEWALK.

CAPTAIN AMERICA MOVIE.

AWESOME.

TERRIFIC, INSPIRING MOVIE

ABOUT A 98 POUND WEAKING WHO

THROUGH SHEER DETERMINATION,

COURAGE AND A THERMEM THAT

RENDERS IM-- TAKES DOWN AND

DEFEATS JAMES CARVILLE.

>> I'M GOING TO GET THE-- ANYWAY

THE MOVIE IS A FICTIONAL

ACCOUNT OF WHAT OUR COUNTRY

CAN ACCOMPLISH WHEN WE PUT

OUR MINDS TO IT AND THEN I

CAME HOME AND SAW THE

NONFICTION VERSION OF THE

FILM.

>> THE AGO RI MONDAY US

NEGOTIATIONS COULDS LAED ON

FRIDAY WHEN HOUSE SPEAKER

JOHN BOEHNER WALKED OUT.

>> THE LATEST ROUND OF TALKS

BROKE DOWN AGAIN OVER THE

WEEKEND.

>> CAN A DEAL BE REACHED OR

IS THIS ATMOSPHERE JUST

POISON.

>> Jon: CAPTAIN AMERICA!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: LET ME GET YOU

CAUGHT UP.

WHILE MANY AMERICANS WERE

ENJOYING AMERICA'S FAST FOOD

SIDEWALKS AND JUSTY

DASHBOARD STEAKS OUR COUNTRY

MOVED CLOSE EVER TO

SELF-INFLICTED ECONOMIC

COULDS LA, SOMETHING WE HAVE

KNOWN HAS BEEN COMPANYING

FOR AS LONG AS WE HAVE BEEN

TOLD, IT'S COMING.

>> TREASURY SECRETARY TIM

GEITHNER SUT

APPROXIMATINGING A DATE ON

WHAT SAYS WOULD BE A

NATIONAL DISASTER, AS EARLY

AS PARCH 31st.

>> WE CAN GIVE CONGRESS

UNTIL THE END OF JUNE.

>> GEITHNER SAYS THE NATION

WILL DISOLVE ON ITS DEAD

JULY 8TH.

>> MOVED THE DROP DEAD DATE

FROM JULY 8TH TO AUGUST 2

WND IF CONGRESS DOESN'T ACT

BY THE SECOND THEY WILL PUT

OUR-- THEY WILL DOWNGRADE

OUR CREDIT, FIRST TIME IN

HISTORY, AND IF THAT HAPPENS,

ARE YOU GOING TO SEE CAT

STRAFK DAMAGE ACROSS THE

AMERICAN ECONOMY AND ACROSS

THE GLOBAL ECONOMY.

>> Jon: THE ONLY OTHER

CATASTROPHE THAT'S MOVED ITS

DATE THIS OFTEN WAS

SPICERMAN TURN OFF THE

DARBLING.

(LAUGHTER)

(LAUGHTER)

112th CONGRESS HAS BEEN

COMPLETELY UNABLE TO MUSTER

A DEBT SEALING AGREEMENT TO

AVOID EYE HOLY UNNECESSARY

DEFAULT, PROBABLY BECAUSE

ITS SUCH A COMPLICATED THING

WE WOULD ONLY BE ABLE TO DO

IT IN THE PAST 102 TIMES.

(LAUGHTER)

>> WE'VE RAISED THE DEBT

CEILING 17 TIMES UNDER

REAGAN -- TIMES UNDER HW

DUSH, FOUR AND PRESIDENT

CLINTON 7 UNDER GW BUSH, SO

PARENTLY FOR PAST CONGRESSES

IT IS AS EFFORTLESS AS THIS.

BUT OF COURSE FOR THIS

CONFERENCE, CONGRESS, IT'S

HARD TO GRAB A ZIP LINE WHEN

YOU CAN'T SEE IT.

(LAUGHTER)

I'M NOT SAYING THEY'RE BAD

AT THEIR JOBS.

I'M NOT SAYING THAT THIS

CONGRESS IS BAD AT ITS JOB,

I'M JUST SAYING THAT THIS

CONGRESS IS EQUIVALENT TO A

SKUNK WITH ITS HEAD IN A JAR

OF SKIPPY PEANUT BUTTER.

OF COURSE, THROUGHOUT THE

PROCESS THE DEMOCRATS WERE

VERY CLEAR ABOUT WHAT THEY

COULD NOT TOLERATE.

>> DEMOCRATS ARE NOT

SUPPORTING ANY CUTS IN

BENEFITS FOR SOCIAL

SECURITY.

>> YOU CANNOT ALLOW MEDICARE

TO BE CUT.

>> DON'T SLASH MEDICAID.

>> LET'S RAISE TACKS ON

THOSE WHO HAVE HAD A BREAK

FOR THE LAST DECADE.

>> WE HAVE TO RAISE REVENUE.

>> THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING

DONE WITH REVENUE TO MAKE

THIS FAIR.

>> Jon: THE REPUBLICANS HAVE

BEEN CLEAR ABOUT WHAT THEY

CAN'T TOLERATE.

>> THE REPUBLICANS ARE NOT

GOING TO AGREE TO TAX HIKES.

>> WE DON'T BELIEVE THAT

RAISING TAXES IS THE ANSWER

HERE.

>> SHORT-TERM WASHINGTON

SOLUTIONS AREN'T ALWAYS THE

BEST.

>> THE ONLY WAY I WILL VOTE

ON THIS DEBT LIMIT THING IS

IF IT IS THE LAST TIME WE DO

IT.

>> WE'RE OUT OF ROAD IT KICK

THE CAN DOWN, NOW IS THE

TIME TO DEAL WELL IT.

>> Jon: AT LEAST TWO THINGS

ARE CLEAR, HOUSE REPUBLICANS

WILL NEVER DIE SHORT-TERM

DEAL WITH TAX INCREASE, DEM

CAN'TS WON'T WITHOUT TAX

INCREASES.

>> THE SENATE MAJORITY

LEADER HARRY REID HAD TO GO

BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD

AND CAME UP WITH HIS

APPROACH T WOULD CUT 2.7

TRILLION DOLLARS, NO TAX

INCREASES, AND RAISE THE

DEBT 150E8ING TO GET THIS

COUNTRY THROUGH 2012.

>> HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN

BOEHNER SAYS HE AIMS TO

UNVEIL THE FRAMEWORK FOR A

NEW SHORTER TERM PLAN THIS

AFTERNOON IT WOULD MEAN

REVISITING THE DEBT CEILING

NEXT YEAR.

>> THE BOEHNER PLAN DID

INCLUDE SOME REVENUE

INCREASES.

>> Jon: SO BOTH SIDES

SWITCHED, EVERYBODY CAVED

AND NO ONE AGREED.

DEMOCRAT HARRY REID'S NEW

PLAN IS NOW TO THE RIGHT OF

REPUBLICAN JOHN BOEHNER

WHOSE NEW PLAN SAYS HEY,

THIS SUCKED SO MUCH LESS'S

DO IT AGAIN IN NINE MONTHS.

MY QUESTION TO CONGRESS AND

I THINK A QUESTION THAT MANY

AMERICANS MAY BE SHARING AS

OF TONIGHT IS THIS.

DO YOU WANT OUT OF THIS

RELATIONSHIP SO BAD BUT

DON'T HAVE THE BALLS TO

LEAVE, SO YOU'VE ALL DECIDED

TO ACT LIKE SUCH GIANT

BLOOEP WLOOEP-- [BLEEP] YOU

FORCE US TO BREAK UP WITH

YOU, BECAUSE IF SO, JUST GET

THE [BLEEP] OUT.
