Oct. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Stan Collender, national director of financial communications at Qorvis, discusses how pressure from politicians’ constituents will force an end to the government shutdown. He speaks on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg Surveillance.”

Will go from watching the spectacle of the shutdown and instead of having reports about less traffic in the washington area, we will have reports about contractors not getting paid.

That will create some pressure on members of congress from the outside.

On the inside, although they did admitted, dike, there were people who were able to say, look what i was willing to do for you.

The democrats who are willing to say were now able to say, look what they did to you.

By the way, he said something earlier about the difference between 1995 and 1996. there were some appropriation signed in 1995 and 1996. that is one of the reasons economic impact wasn't as small.

There were two d-up shutdowns.

The first one, about 800,000 workers were off but only 270,000 were off in the longer shutdown that went into january because they had passed some appropriations bills.

Look at the big picture.

We have rolled from crisis to crisis and dysfunction to dysfunction and you can count up the economic data, but can you measure the impact?

A washington that isn't sure it can pay its bills or fund its government come it has to leave an impact.

But there is crisis fatigue.

We heard that in the report does before you came on the air.

A lot of folks overseas are saying, i have seen her before.

They will figure it out somehow.

Boxers the 1995 perspective.

Let's go back, 28 days total, very different.

The speaker of the house at the time of the revolutionary november 1994 when was newt gingrich.

His comment was to the point, we hope the president will decide -- president clinton -- we hope the president will decide to talk with doesn't have a discussion about how to get this solved.

Stan, the republicans caved.

Do you assume you'll see that again?

I do.

I don't see where they will go from here.

I think within a week or so, they'll start getting pressure from their constituents.

All you need are 16 republicans to start saying to john boehner, we got to fix this or we're going to get hurt.

Boehner no longer has the majority at that point.

Gingrich was much more popular than john boehner.

One of the reasons it started to crater for the republicans back then was he started to won a little bit.

He also bragged about shutting down the government.

Friday, no jobs report?

Literally, no jobs report?

Unless they settle in the next 24 to 48 hours with black what are we going to do?

There will be no jobs report.

What are we going to do?

We will all have a contest.

What are we going to do?

We could read the funnies like the mayor.

Will it come out some random day?

That happened back in 1995 and 1996. the cpi report was generated, so they put it out.

The jobs report, not completely finished, so they will wait.

Michael mckee.

Looking ahead to the debt ceiling.
