tv The Intelligence Report With Trish Regan FOX Business January 29, 2016 2:00pm-3:01pm EST
ted cruz who was front and center last night during a fox news debate is about two and a half hours away from me. directly due north of a minnesota borderline. that goes to show you how these candidates are in the last second. he has an issue here with his stance on ethanol. just a little while ago, he tried to flip that issue on donald trump. there it was. >> it is easy to come to iowa and propose this. they had that position today. >> i said pick a candidate. probably in new hampshire today. she had a modified attack on cruz.
something in the past about the citizenship. entirely different spin on it. >> crews may not be a u.s. citizen. he is an anchor baby. ted cruz is an anchor baby in canada. canada's do not accept that. >> that was trump a little while ago in new hampshire higher. he hosts seven events saturday, sunday and monday. trish: thank you so much. crisp on joining me with their analysis. you are already shaking your head. what is going on? we have not even gotten started yet. >> that is the first that i have heard the donald trump attack on
cruz. last night, it was the end of ted cruz's challenge for the republican nomination. i think you should be more worried about marco rubio. competition kind of looked like they were beating each other up and eating each other for lunch. the questions were very tough. ronald reagan goes for amnesty. particularly for cuban amnesty. where they stand on particular immigration reform. russell crowe from gladiator. are you not entertained? i sure am. >> everybody is entertained. we have more and more people involved in this conversation. that can only be good for our democratic process.
what is your analysis of last night? >> ted cruz had the blessing and the curse of center stage. the cherished spot. the front runner on stage. also the bull's-eye on that stage. a tremendous blessing. the guy is a fantastic advocate for liberty and freedom. he was the main target last night. he defended himself pretty well. frankly, the guy who lost the lease last night because he did not show up. i almost think that ted cruz should have considered not showing up as well. >> you really do not. you have to look at how you turn out to voters on monday. that is all that matters.
the best way for him to do that is to not attack last night. i also think you take a look at marco rubio. the difference between cruz and rubio, very, very important. defeating rubio by double digits. >> i think that he will refute your point there. i grew up in new hampshire higher. if mrs. smith was offering coffee down the street, if you are a candidate, you go. the opportunity to have a big audience, it is a great opportunity. chris, your thoughts. >> 90% of life is showing up.
you would be willing to debate whenever, wherever. quite frankly, i do not get the strategy of not showing up. especially in a state like iowa. i have been very wrong about donald trump. >> i want to share with you guys some of the highlights from last night. marco rubio talking about immigration. >> i wrote a book about this. you can get it on amazon. that is a book where you change your position on immigration. you used to support a path to citizenship. >> so did you. >> he is right. so did you. they realize that maybe this will not fly. how will that haunt all of these candidates. their past positions on some of
these key issues. >> the first debate where we will now consider him work out in the amnesty, rubio. rubio is not found any effective way to defend against that claim. looking a lot more human last night. bush was playing for the new hampshire higher crowd last night. that is where he has some possibilities to take out rubio and new hampshire higher. you know, interestingly enough -- >> he is playing for third. he is playing for the bronze medal. >> he has to counter against the number one and number two guy. donald trump is engineering a hostile takeover of the republican party.
he is in the process. whatever is left of the party. >> i want to get his thoughts on it. thank you so much. we have quite a rally going on. 281 points. it is a surprise move. interest rates into negative territory. investors really welcoming that today. let's continue with this debate analysis. ask how much it helped or hurt any of the candidates. here with me on set. the 1984 reelection campaign. >> without trump, you had a lot more substance. each of the candidates did a lot
better. crews probably should have pressed his case a little harder. he is a conservative candidate. obviously, trump has been in different places. i think more dangerous than missing last night as you know in new hampshire higher. the closing weekend of i well, a lot of violence do not like that. we made the mistake in 1976. we left new hampshire are the weekend before. >> gerri ford came back and one that he had a long battle after that. that was a key thing. >> who do you think will win that? now where they were once. i think it was too much of thatw hampshire higher than he has
anyplace else. how do you go beyond that. >> do you think that trouble when and i will? >> i think that there is no great increase in turnout. cruz has $10,000. they know how to win it. it is a traditional 120,000 votes. he will win it. 140, 150, then, obviously there will be new voters. in new hampshire higher, i think that that is a good point. expected to do seven or eight events between now and tuesday. you are right. it is critical that you are showing some kind of presence on the ground. >> do you think that the party helped. you think that the other
candidates were helped by not having trump on stage there. >> trump creates the circus atmosphere. i am sorry. that is what it has come down to. ten blocks away. by the end, it was kind of dull. >> you are telling it like it is. >> i think that fox did a great job. i think nagin did an exceptional job. i think fox one. thirteen-14 million people. >> it will be tight. if trump wins iowa, trump wins new hampshire higher -- >> and larger turnout. it will be hard to stop.
>> violate in their thousands of days. >> born and raised. >> if he wins the first two, no one has ever done that. trish: republican candidate mike huckabee joins me. what his plan is to get our bow. he won the caucus eight years ago. that is coming up next. 276. we will see you right back here. ♪ you both have a
perfect driving record. >>perfect. no tickets. no accidents... >>that is until one of you clips a food truck, ruining your perfect record. >>yup... now, you would think your insurance company would cut you some slack, right? >>no. your insurance rates go through the roof. your perfect record doesn't get you anything. >>anything. perfect!

trish: that was former governor mike huckabee ripping into bernie sanders at last night debate. huckabee won back in 2008. well last night's performance give the governor a last-minute boost, tuesday? governor, walk me through where you were eight years ago. three days before the caucuses. >> scheduling every media appearance that we could. trying to button down those caucus voters. calling everybody that is on our list. our headquarters is buzzing with activity. you just try to bring them all. trish: similar to what you are doing now, i would presume.
>> i have not found it. i still think that you win it the old-fashioned way. you go out there and you meet these voters. ask for the business. that is what we are doing. trish: what is your weekend like? >> we're we are going to several cities tomorrow. on sunday, we have an event with senator grassley. it will be in west the mine. then we have a film of god is not dead part two. that will be shown in a theater in des moines. it does not actually come out until april. that will bring over 600 people out on sunday night. a lot of events. trish: you were successful eight years ago. the jury is still out. you still have time. it is politics. anything can happen.
i am not surprised you are not further ahead. >> this has been an unusual season. what i said eight years ago that caused me to win is what i have been saying this time. this is a guy that had not changed. whether i go on bill mars show or i am talking to fox news or fog business, i am saying the same thing. talking about the issues that matter to working class people. i think that a lot of candidates are missing that opportunity. somebody has to talk to the millions of americans that are unemployed. those are the people i have been talking to and fighting for. they will say, you know, we have
looked at all the shiny new objects. the reason we voted for huckabee is because he is standing up for us and he still is. >> you have some innovative proposals when it comes to taxes. you can have what you call a fair tax. it is known as a consumption tax. explain it to viewers so they understand. >> you would eliminate all the taxes on werth, investment, inheritance, dividends, savings. you eliminate punishing people for doing good things. people pay their taxes at the point that they consume something. >> no income tax. knowing contacts at all? >> zero capital gains. zero dividends tax. zero tax on your savings. that helps a lot of senior adults who right now are getting
hammered because of low interest rates. think about all the farmers in iowa. they have been in the family for 150 years. the patriarch dies. they have to liquidate half the farm to pay the taxes on it. it empowers people who are working. we are not talking about rich people. i think they come out better with the fair tax. here is why. i welcome back to you on this. >> tell me why. the guy at the machine shop, if he is wanting to double up, you would think that he would get it double paycheck, but he doesn't. he will be in a new tax bracket did the government is dishing him for working twice as hard, rather than rewarding him. >> that is the flipside of that.
that guy has to go out and buy food to put on a table for his family. you will be taxing back consumption. a lot of people who worry, the poor will be most penalized. they will be paying back consumption tax. >> build into the fair tax is it essentially the on passing of necessities. that guy is not tax for his bare necessities. he is not functionally taxed until he gets above that level of poverty. he will not be worse off. when he goes to buy something, he takes his whole paycheck. the income tax comes out. the payroll tax comes out. he gets a 100% paycheck. 22% of what we buy is embedded tax. we tax labor and capital.
i tax a man who builds the chair in a tax on the materials that go into making the chair. if they do that in china, it is not taxed. we are taxing that process. our competitors are not. >> i have a hard break. forgive me, i have to run. thank you for joining us. alexander hamilton talked about this. that many years ago. very interesting. mike huckabee, good luck over the weekend. we will talk to you again soon. the president issuing an executive order. reporting to the government what they pay their employees. by gender, race and ethnic city. isn't that just what our struggling economy needs. more red tape for businesses.
>> democratic candidates. making last-minute appeals in the hawkeye state. neck and neck. just five points. could she wind up losing iowa. what would it mean for her campaign overall. breaking analysis. former campaign manager. 1988 presidential run. good to have you here. >> good to be here. trish: are you surprised that this is as close as it is right now? >> look, iowa is iowa. i know exactly where they are. ideological.
they responded very strongly. if very passionate campaign by bernie sanders. if i had to make a prediction right now, hillary will pull it off. convincing me enough. this will not be a one-to-three punch type of season. she will grind out this nomination. >> if she loses iowa, issue loses new hampshire higher, you still think that she can win the whole thing? >> yes. i am so old it is terrible. i was working for the democratic party. gary hart came from nowhere. he did not beat mondale in iowa. it was as if he did. he was the great, you know, bright star.
then we set up for the three-month period having money, having organization, having all of those super delegates, all of that will add up. states we do not pay attention to. send it delegates. trish: the white house has said that they want to put together this measure. telling the government exactly what they are paying everyone. breaking it down by gender. the goal is to create an environment that guarantees some kind of quality when it comes to pay. your thoughts on that. >> okay. it is two separate questions. should every hr department have this information?
is it worthwhile for a company to count? i think it is. you should higher for women and for men. one hispanic and two asians. i do not believe in that. i do think that it is important for companies to hold up a mirror for themselves. trish: authorities are ready no. >> they know and if anyone asks a question. i talked to a ceo very recently. i never even asked that question. i don't think about gender. i said, well, maybe you should. >> women are so vastly underpaid. >> yes.
i think if you look at boards of directors and top positions, executive level, yes. also in the middle. trish: what just about the reality of life? i point to a study that i cited before. it looked at this. they did it in an apples to apples way. they adjusted. trying to really figure out our women and men actually making similar amounts of money or is there a vast difference? they are quite similar. there may be a .5% spread difference in favor of the men. >> here is the problem, trish. they come to the solution.
one of the critical factors in determining the critical pay. most of the guys, i know. they take a day. they take two days. they take me. we call him father of the year. we take time off. you have to look at whether those sectors really are job-related. they relate to things women and men do differently. trish: suzanne, i am out of time. >> good to see you. trish: we will take a quick break and then take a look at this market. we will be right back.mpetitio ♪ about governments and businesses being hacked, emails compromised, and intellectual property being stolen. that is cyber-crime, and it affects each

trish: we are up 309. actually moving rates into negative territory. that will spark. up almost 2% right now on the dow as we head into the weekend. before the iowa caucuses on monday. who really made the best case on why he or she should be our next president. here with some analysis. howley, good to see you. you are in iowa now.
>> it is cold here in des moines. trish: the local media. is this something that i will voters like? or were they upset? >> i think that there was a split. some of them were happy. others felt this was a job. it is extraordinary behind-the-scenes dramas. megan kelly, bret baier and chris wallace did not know when donald may swipe in at the last minute. they had two sets of questions prepared. >> it is one of the things where he is so unpredictable.
i am not going to be there. showing up at the front hall. i said this before. i think you missed an opportunity. having a chance to speak to that many viewers. you want to get your message out. you want your viewers to be heard. he did do a pretty good job last time around. >> i think that there is something to that. donald trump versus fox news. trump was six or seven or eight points behind ted cruz. i think he would have been there. i think he made it a calculated gamble. there may have been a couple of bad moments for him during the debate. this way he gets to do his own thing. sitting on his lead. that left ted cruz as the guy
taking the most incoming at the debate. the headline in the des moines register said rough night for cruz. in part because of the moderators were very tough on cruz and marco rubio as well. >> they sure were. do you think that it will continue to be an extraordinarily close race? all of the data suggest that it will be. did people have their mind changed last night it all? >> i am sure that some did. iowa caucuses are notorious for late deciders. they are almost impossible to predict because of the complicated rules. in the primary, i would say that trump probably got it. the real question is, 43% of supporters say that they would
be first-time caucus goers. will any of them actually show up? trish: they are talking about a snowstorm there. >> even that could affect the outcome. how does marco rubio do? it is really too close to call. it is ted cruz's has the day. the senator taxes said himself that he would be unstoppable. crews will get a huge amount of hopeless idiot. we could have, at least in the short term. trish: it is so interesting. i cannot even think of another campaign that would like this in any way, shape or form. good to see you. trish: coming up. the outrageous failure of government at all levels. flint, michigan.
