degeneres. he is on the show. the latest appeal. it is not working so far. putin is still in humiliate america mode. can you believe this one? $10 billion. a quarter million people unplug from cable. going to the new king of entertainment, that would be streaming. first day of spring and "varney & company" is about to begin. ♪ stuart: we will start with a big number. $10 billion. $10 billion for a company that
11:01 am
most of you have never heard of. where did that number come from? charles: somebody has heard of them. secondly, let's talk about the more important banks. we have two buddies that moved from san francisco october 2007. they cannot afford their rent. it was going pretty good. they came up with a special cereal box. they sold $30,000 worth. this is what i love about these stories. it is about the american dream living. they have a new income stream.
11:02 am
stuart: to me it is a very, very good idea. very well executed. again, it concentrates wealth. charles: maybe we can rent out the house on the weekends. i can stay with my brother. maybe we keep the house and pay the mortgage. stuart: i think that it is a great story. any solution to fix this will be painful to all of us. listen to this. >> security and the major healthcare plans will be more
11:03 am
expensive than on average in the past. we have a choice as a society to scale back those programs relative to what is promised under current law or to raise tax revenue to above its historical average. stuart: we hear you. monica crowley is with us. monica, i will guarantee that is what happens. >> that certainly will be the move. what he is now talking about is you have to start dealing with social security now. stuart: the moment you use the word cut, you cannot win an
11:04 am
election. stuart: both sides. >> it does need reform. stuart: which politician will not print a ton of money to fund it in the future? both sides will cave. both sides ultimately will agree to a tax increase. charles: i do not disagree with you guys. you have to start making these payments at 70. stuart: not all classes and groups of people live longer. charles: we do not have to pay those people social security.
11:05 am
people say all the time, i put money into this. it is not a gimme. stuart: can't we just hold on for a second. we are about to take a statement from president obama. >> i want to provide an update on the situation in ukraine and the steps that the united states are taking in response. we have continued to be deeply concerned by the events in ukraine. we have seen an illegal referendum in crimea. there have been threats to ukrainian personnel. these are all choices that the russian government has made. because of these choices, the
11:06 am
united states is today moving, as we said we would to impose additional costs on russia. based on that executive order that i signed in response to russia's intervention, we are imposing sanctions on more officials of the russian government. in addition, we are today sanctioning a number of other individuals with substantial resources and influence. a bank provides material support to these individuals. we are taking these steps as part of our response to what russia has already done in crimea. at the same time, the world is watching with great concern as russia has positioned its military in a way that could lead to further. four this reason, we have been working closely with our european partners.
11:07 am
as part of the process, i signed a new executive order today that gives us the authority to impose sanctions not just on individuals, but key sectors of the russian economy. this is not our preferred outcome. these sanctions would not only have a significant impact on the economy, but could also have a disruption to the global economy. russia must know that further escalation will only isolate it further from the international community. the basic principle that relations between nations must be upheld within the 21st century. that includes respect for sovereignty. notion the nations do not simply redraw borders. one of our other top priorities
11:08 am
is providing assistance to ukraine. as i travel to europe next week to meet with the g7 and other european nation allies, i once again urge them to pass legislation that is necessary to provide this assistance and do it right away. i also hope that it moves swiftly to provide a significant package. in europe, i will also be reinforcing a message to the vice president biden. america's support for our nato allies isnwavering. we have already increased our support.
11:09 am
we will step up our cooperation with europe on economic and energy issues as well. one that the escalates and one that involves russia pursuing a diplomatic solution. the ukrainians should not have to choose between the west and russia. that can only happen if russia also recognized the rights of

all the ukrainian people to determine their future. people and nations around the world undersnd and support. thank you very much, everybody. stuart: okay. that was the president making a very brief statement on the issues in ukraine. more sanctions on russian officials. he may impose even more severe sanctions if the russians continue to escalate. they need to recognize the rights of all ukrainians.
11:11 am
>> i did not vote for you and i am pretty skeptical about obamacare. when i actually signed up, it turns out that i am saving $100, $200 or i am getting health insurance for the first time. >> i do not think building cares much if he goes on ellen degeneres in the final weeks of the obamacare sign up. stuart: oh, i think that he does >> president president obama is so distracted that he does not, is not paying close enough attention or is not willing to confront vladimir putin.
11:12 am
what he told me is, state one media in russia is openly mocking the president of the united states. putting him on the air. there is absolute contempt in russia for this guy. he is out there dancing with ellen degeneres. stuart: plug-ins popularity rating has gone up. charles. charles: monica covered it all. very nicely, as usual. stuart: zero impact on the market. right where we were when the president stopped his speech. the strongest earthquake in 20 years at los angeles and monday. about three city council members are asking whether fracking is to blame. that comes up next. ♪ (announcer) scottrade knows our clients trade

people who are out of work. creating jobs and opportunity. we can do that. we should have a black gold rush. stuart: how are you doing with the fracking argument? that is absolutely key. microsoft is now priced at purdue $9.98 per share. from here on out, charles will anchor the show. charles: you deserve it. take a bow.

[ woman ] got me to 70 years old. i'm going have to rethink this thing. it's hard to imagin how much we'll need for a retirement that could last 3years or mor so maybe we need to approach things dferently, if we want to be ready for a longer retirement. ♪
11:26 am
11:27 am
these unless you are going short. stuart: what else i you going to say? charles: that was a grasp for strom moment there. it was utterly ridiculous. stuart: that is putting it mildly. that advice from jay carney on investing would launch a new segment, move over charles payne. this is making money with jay carney. we ask you whether you would take advice from obama's press secretary. we got a couple responses. allen says jay carney is the same guy advising me to buy obamacare and that won't happen. mary says i would not ask for a weather report. just look out the window. he is an embarrassment to the country like the rest of the administration little harsh. howard things we should have sympathy for jay carney saying do not blame him, look at who he is paid for speak for.
11:28 am

11:36 am
>> remember dominoes will be bad crust? think republicans already admitted that crust, we needed different kind of party. stuart: there was a standing ovation. the host of special reports on the fox news channel. can you welcome to the program, that looks to me like a flat out split in the republican party, libertarians versus everybody else. what do you say? >> rand paul is trying to to get that group, that young group, different demographic, he is going to speak to groups, african-american groups, hispanic groups, make the out reach case that a libertarian version of what has been the republican party is better able to go after the middle of the country, better able to go after constituencies that previously republicans haven't been able to
11:37 am
get. this is leading up to a 2016 run. stuart: the issues appealed very much to young people. that speech in berkeley was specifically nailing the nsa and snooping and domestic spying. unpopular with young people. he also played the marijuana card, legalize it nationally as most libertarians want. he really does appeal to young folks, a standing ovation at berkeley is astonishing for a republican. >> he is pulling a lot of things from his father, ron paul, who miraculously had this following that was almost a cult following in a lot of young groups. remember the primary leading up to the republican nomination. he is following that but on other issues he is changing and pulling a different card and being more traditional as far as republican issues. it is interesting to watch him. on the fed he is different from
11:38 am
his father. he still criticizes the federal reserve and thinks there should be more aggressive auditing but he is not overall on the ron paul side of things. i do think he is trying to bridge that young person's gap that republican voters have had. stuart: what about the democrats? they seem split over obamacare especially with the deadline approaching and enrollees not really there. some memory in the obamacare can't they seem to be split. >> there will be a lot more red state democrats, these vulnerable democrats up for reelection in traditionally republican states who start to pull away from the president on the issue of obamacare and try to distance themselves. mary landrieu of louisiana, mark baggage in alaska and others. there is a split here on obamacare. i also note that hillary clinton
11:39 am
when she goes on the stump around the country she doesn't talk about the nsa very much. that is a powerful issue for someone like rand paul to talk about because hillary clinton is caught on foreign policy and intelligence policy directly to barack obama. stuart: you read the numbers very closely. do you think the republicans will take the senate in this year's elections? >> we had a long way to go between now and then. a lot will be determined in the primaries, who the republicans choose to run in a lot of these races but most of the political analysts and all watchers in washington put it now at 60/40, the senate is going to change hands. because they look at the dynamic, all places democrats are defending and think republicans have a pretty good chance to pick up those six seats they need to take a majority. stuart: 6 months is an eternity in politics. bret baier, everyone, thank you

don't need a client in person. the lawyers make a large fee. but if it punishes the defendant and makes arab revolts to some extent, it is a good thing. stuart: if they win, they win a ton of money from fitbit. they will get a refund of the cost of this thing and a nice discount coupon for the next one. >> the devils advocate is nobody gets a penny refund. lawyer fees have to be approved by the court. stuart: a rash? anybody who wears a wristwatch would get a rash. [laughter] >> twice you've already used the word "punish." the idea is you want to punish them? >> i used the wrong word, you are right. i mean make people whole.
12:04 pm
stuart: a rash, i must be made whole. i want a ton of money, i'm going to hire a lawyer. i am harmed for life, i need counseling. i need therapy forever. i got a rash. >> forget this case. stuart: we will not forget this case. you are a lawyer trying to put this device out of business. and you might win. >> if it causes a rash, something has to be done about that. charles: lawyers will make a lot of money. stuart: lawyers will make money. got to make money. you are the right of wrongs, aren't you? the chairman of the federal reserve. >> my father, his name was arnold.
12:05 pm
stuart: you are a lawyer, thank you for coming on. >> i am a lawyer, i admit it. somewhat reluctantly. stuart: it is thursday, right? facebook is not cool anymore. and they don't care. facebook is a business, all about making money. pay up. tell me what is going on. nicole: that is right. you want attention on facebook, put your money where your mouth is. that is what facebook is telling businesses, not individual users, businesses one by one. i don't want the bad p.r. to go along with it. telling big companies that unless, let's use nike for example. they are only going to be able to pump out about 1% of that. 160,000 of their followers will get to see their new shoe unless they want to pay for it.
12:06 pm
this is facebook is a business. stuart: the stock has gone up. thank you, nicole. #askpayne. you wanted to know about cisco. charles: this is a really tough one. this week downgraded it, sort of shockwaves. target went from 25 up to 23. they have these businesses moving slowly into the cloud and security to the person that was asking about it, they pay 3% yield. i like juniper are a lot more. stuart: it is safe, it will not drop through the floor. charles: is this where you want all your eggs? stuart: protesting obamacare
12:07 pm
provision leaving doctors with the bill from the two months of unpaid care. the provision requires insurers to allow patients for federally subsidized health insurance plans a 90 day grace period to pay the premiums before canceling coverage. they're on their hope the first 30 days, the doctor stuck with the bill after that. it is complicated but the ama was a big supporter of obamacare. now it is saying we get stuck with the bill. joining us now, from lenox hill hospital. i am trying to explain it. we hear under obamacare doctors like yourself can sometimes get stuck with the bill over a longer holding because of obamacare, is that accurate? >> i would say at this point the
12:08 pm
end of the private practice because-- stuart: that is a big statement. >> i hope to see mostly people in private practice today are operating on smaller and smaller margins. the reason for that is because of the new law lotta people signed up for high deductibles. especially the beginning of the year, we're talking about deductibles five, $12,000. these people are insured. but when they come to see you they cannot pay. stuart: they have a huge deductible so the beginning of the year they are working off the deductible, not really insured. they are stiffing the doctor, is that roughly how it is? >> that is exactly how it is. people come to the doctor. i am in a specialty business.
12:09 pm
very expensive operations. almost instantly the people will meet the deductible going into my office. if we go ahead with the surgery. these people are insured for my purposes. i could be working for months. if you project that on a nationwide level, a serious hit in america. stuart: it is a complex story. i want to go back to your opening statement, this is the end of private practice. >> if they are operating on small margins they have to pay the salary to their employees. most importantly in new york it is tremendous. the average surgeons over $70,000 per year.
12:10 pm
i don't have the exact number, but that is the ballpark. if you calculate all these expense, no money coming in,-- stuart: are you a member of "the american medical association"? originally supported obamacare very strongly, sir. are you going to withdraw that support? >> i am very agitated because i believe in the beginning especially had betrayed a lot of us. stuart: strong word, doctor, "betrayal." >> i am passionate about this. cancer care requires a lot of efforts, a lot of times each individual patient. so, for me supporting organization like ama is critical. if the law doesn't work i cannot
12:11 pm
maintain my private practice, cannot help my patients and what is the next step? stuart: i know you came to us in very short notice, we appreciate it because we want a clean cut understanding the situation that you and other doctors are in. and you delivered. hewlett-packard getting into the 3d printing business. a juggernaut getting into a new territory. 3d. does the smaller company have much of a chance? the ceo of 3d systems is with us after the break.

12:18 pm
stuart: he had this to say about your company, 3d printers on this program. >> that company makes machines, little figurines, jewelry, it is really a glorified play-doh factory. stuart: you heard it, a glorified play-doh factory. would you like respond to that? >> over 90% of our business making parts for airplanes and cars and specific medical devices. i find this product ironically misinformed. stuart: despite a rationalization of the whole industry? will come down for a few majors within a few years? >> i think consolidation is afoot, but equally we see some new startups. it will take some time. at the end of the day having a complete portfolio like we have with more than 100 materials
12:19 pm
will scale to the people looking to invest in the manufacturing prodigy. this is going to be about airplanes and cars and the future of manufacturing. stuart: i understand you just helped someone to walk again, tell me what 3d printing did for this lady who now walks. i only have 30 seconds. >> she was paralyzed from the waist down in a ski accident. we helped her in a way that allowed her to restore her symmetry and allowed her to walk on an extension of her body as opposed to just a machine. that to me is priceless and it points to future directions of specific medical devices to improve the quality of life.

[ woman ] got me to 70 years old. i'm going have to rethink this thing. it's hard to imagin how much we'll need for a retirement that could last 3years or mor so maybe we need to approach things dferently,

online worth $10 billion which mark charles payne loves it. more on the company. i have a story for you about a shift in our culture, changing social habit, companies that lead the way. here is my take on starbucks. perhaps are expected something about amazon or google bringing new technology to our lives. this is about starbucks bringing alcohol to the coffee shop near you. they plan to serve here and wine as well as quality food in thousands of stores throughout the country. they've already started at 25 location the quitting l.a., seattle and chicago. as a big shift in the way alcohol is being presented. 13,000 starbucks in america. they are everywhere and they are inviting places, they are not dark and dingy and forbidden. they are haven for young people. it seems to me if alcohol is
12:26 pm
introduced by the world's leading coffeehouse chain, something is shifting. as the neighborhood bar retreats, companies like starbucks jump in to fill the gap. all of those will be wildly expensive and liability insurance serving booze will cost an arm and a leg. we had a even started on a question if people want to drink in a coffee shop. our opinion this morning was it will be an utter failure. maybe. but i take this as a sign of the times. it starts to lead new trends and starbucks is all-american. america is always changing and we shouldn't be surprised when alcohol consumption changes too. good for you, starbucks, now let's see if it works. the stock has done well.

communications, former communications director for president obama in the white house. if i was going to try to reach young people i believe it i would like a president, i would go on youtube and the ellen show because that is the audience i want to reach. the criticism is it is not presidential, vladimir putin is looking at what the president is doing, and it is not working, young people are not signing up. >> the reason president obama is in the oval office is he is a nonconventional communicator, somebody who on both of his campaigns understanding media at best as anyone who has ever been in the presidency, and he is encouraging his team to put him in places where the audience he needs to reach, will hear what he has to say. the affordable care act is important enough he is willing

>> all politics are local and they need to do what they need to do to win their races. what is important to maintain the senate and fight to take back the house. stuart: if you lose the senate obamacare has a huge problem. >> not so sure about that. we saw what happened. we are going to fight against that. at the end of the day, right now, where do you see the president saying, members of the democratic party saying, they are telling people we need to wake up. florida 13 was a wake-up call for those who are aware, we lost democrats, we are not successful in winning that race even though we spent a lot of money. stuart: it was about obamacare. >> not at all. less than 3500 votes, ten vote for a precinct. at an end of the democrats could have won that vote if we had gotten our voters out to the polls and we know -- charles: presidents--republicans after the presidential campaign.
