6:04 am
seems to have been taken out. the speaker said we'll get there. we are doing it. we have time. >> is clear they are not on the same page. >> other people say we will get something done before recess. if they don't get a win pretty quickly, i see independent support of the president really softening because they came in believing he was going to go down and get stuff done. he would drain the swamp of the things to be done differently and we are not seeing anything. dagen: gorsuch to be a big win for space. a quote in the journal article about tax refund white house taking the lead. one official says the current obvious goal for a plan to pass could slip and it might be difficult to pass anything after december. you have a very short window. >> two weeks off. great job. maria: looking at easter recess in the next couple weeks. a lot to talk about this morning. ceo of express scripts here. kim wentworth will talk about

6:06 am
maria: president reagan signed two executive orders focused on reducing the trade deficit. obviously, this is what you focused on so much when you're running home depot, the trade situation. what do you expect in terms of measures coming out of the meeting today? >> first of all, we've got to make sure to china take our jobs or because of regulations, taxes and uncompetitive situations, we forced them of jobs over there and businesses? we have to be candid about what really took place. i do think the president needs to work on a balance of trades. in other words, when you don't markets as open as ours has been to them. that's what we are really looking for. little quid pro quo with china. maria: one of the issues is the chinese will not allow american companies to own more than just a joint venture.
6:07 am
if you want access to the $1.3 billion in china, you will not do it in an ownership situation. it is going to be a minority ownership. >> i think that is the broad point of discussion between president trump and president xi jinping that we'll have a level playing field moving forward. maybe it's not completely apples to apples but she's got to have some kids rather than a lot of cake from the nation of china and others a sticking point and how they manage the vast amount of treasury debt that the chinese holes. it differs from month to month, but the second largest foreign owner of our dad that gives them negotiating leverage. maria: this is something the president talked about on the campaign trail. certainly enough versus situation. how did the american people that
6:08 am
this relationship? what are they saying about the president and getting out of this? >> what i think and what you said is an important point about there not necessarily taking our jobs, but the american people view it as they are taking our job and in some ways even assess what china is enhanced and. quality issues and a lot of things that happened over the year. this is fair. it was made in america, it would be better quality. what we need to see his donald trump, at the meeting with some strength in help and understanding of what's going on in the give-and-take that is to have been. >> what is done on regulations, whether it's epa from rolling back restrictions on the auto industry. those are all positive incentives that will cause repatriation of jobs back to the u.s. your point about jv. we had one of the first month in china. it doesn't work. trade to 49% of the joint venture. >> exactly. it is very difficult quality
6:09 am
forecasting. it was just a nightmare. maria: that's the issue. >> incredibly interesting. a lot of people don't have that hand sonics are your hands. in terms of president trump's more connected with what happened with mexico quite frank over the last 20 or 30 years because in a lot of the trump strongholds across the country during the election, it was really nafta. the jobs that were lost were not just lost to china. they were lost to mexico. furniture manufacturing, technical manufacturing and a lot of those jobs than a lot of the other jobs. maria: you speak to any global ceo like bob nardelli and not the one big issue they face. they want access to the 1 billion people in china and they want to sell to those people that the chinese government knows that. it's not going to give it away frankly at all. >> we may not like we china
6:10 am
operates, but when they say they will start building airplanes, they build them. when they want to get into technology, whether they take the technology, brought the technology is another issue. they are focused. they are disciplined and they are hungry for economic growth. maria: the president is also so different it seems than president xi jinping in many ways. the chinese president has no social media accounts. he also does not play golf as the communist party has issued a crack down on this board in an attempt to target corruption. it's interesting the optics of this to watch them today and mar-a-lago to see how they get along. the nice thing for the president to come to this luxurious mar-a-lago state, not sure how the chinese president reacts. >> he'd be more comfortable at the white house no media. dagen: maybe that's the whole point. they did this chart of all good tricks for president trump has
6:11 am
taken since he was inaugurated to trump properties. i just laugh at it. the point is he is a very savvy individual and he is comfortable in these places. if people he's meeting with are not comfortable ,-com,-com ma then that gives him the negotiating leverage. maria: let's switch gears for quick read before you take a break, markets yesterday. stocks have a reversal of fortune from her birth in a bid rather than the earlier hours of the day after the federal reserve minutes indicated there is a valuation concerns here. beecher average is down. down just wrote down 41 points, but the least of it was the turnaround that was significant. house speaker paul ryan said tax refund could take months, said we have time but it could take longer than people thought. what you think about the minutes yesterday. now i see a competition. fiscal policy, monetary policy. he smashed the recovery just as getting traction? >> that's interesting.
6:12 am
they tended to back off on whether we get two or three more increases. the balance sheet if you will. are they going to put the money back, hold it when these things start maturing. an interesting time for what is happening out there in the market. maria: the thinking among investors since election day is great, we can now move forward with fiscal policy and we won't be so reliant on monetary policy. so monetary policy, the fed says the start whittling down the portfolio, beginning later in the year. by the way, stocks are maybe overpriced at this point. in the meantime, look at what's happening in congress. they are not moving ahead with speed on tax reform and infrastructure spending. if you pull away from the monetary stimulus coming back to rent the cisco. maria: taking away monetary policy committee can only
6:13 am
stimulus is one thing. making things harder, squeezing people by making expensive marks if it is another. maybe just taking it away as enough without making things even tighter. maybe that's where the markets will react. who will take a short break. coming up, paying for this race to space. jeff bezos betting big on blue origin. how much is paying out of pocket. the soda giant to pull the controversial live less than a day after defending it. the company's about-face next-paragraph succumb tomorrow.

6:18 am
work. if we can do that, you will be losing -- living in a completely new world. a golden age of state exploration. so many people. that'll be a big industry. reporter: no total estimate how much bezos will be amassing will be amassing come of it is satisfying to spend whatever it takes. another tech news. google is live tv streaming service youtube tv is now up and running in five major u.s. markets. for $35 monthly service offers five strands from all four major broadcast networks and a host of others launching 39 stations of 10 mark including amc coming soon. the tv service competing with the likes of slain tv from a directv as well as sony's playstation view. there is also that parent of google. finally, pepsi pulled the plug on the new protest ad that features kendall jenner after it
6:19 am
sparked an uproar online. a statement the company says in part, quote, pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding. clearly we missed the mark and apologized if he had had as 1.3 million viewers and two days before was pulled from youtube as well as broadcast. they probably spend upwards of $10 million on the ad, maria is some advertising analyst estimate. maria: first defending it and then they just succumb to the pressure. thank you. all eyes on president trump's while republicans consider another go over. obamacare. as the timeline changed? the latest on the path to reform. what will it take, what will it do. plus whipping up cool new drinks red the tasty beverage starbucks added to its menu. we will try them out right here on inside. back in a moment.

6:23 am
comcast business. built for speed. built for business. maria: welcome back republicans win another vendor blender placing upon the care. tax return to take center stage at our nation's capitol. paul ryan warned yesterday and a deal on taxes could take longer then he asked back. >> we were actually closer in agreement to health care than tax reform. the house has a plan, but the senate hasn't quite happened yet. the white house hasn't nailed it down. even the three entities are done the same page yet on tax reform. maria: joining us now is deputy managing partner michael sarah. thanks for joining us. you're very in touch with business leaders are feeling right now. do it at the deal to get done on
6:24 am
tax reform and when might that be? >> a lot? >> a lot of their demonstrations play. tax reform along with gaussian infrastructure coming into the ly health care vacillating back in worth. there's opportunities to get a deal done and tax reform. tax return is critical for job creation. tax reform, infrastructure and defense are huge impetus for job creation and gdp growth. maria: and for economic growth. our skeptical lunacy an impact in terms of economic growth in 2017. now it feels like we better not expect it. 18, not 2017. is that a problem for the markets and the economy? >> way too slow. what is disheartening is when i hear congress come in the senate representative said in here for two decades in trump has to learn that things don't move that fast. the problem is they are in an
6:25 am
analog world moving to digital. they've digital. they've got to get caught out. you are with the c. suite every week. taxes, not on the corporate tax, but the small-business person who files on a personal basis. dagen: thank you. we must give them the same advantage retyped about corporate tax. your opinions, thoughts. >> absolutely, we quickly go to corporate and we need to make changes in the corporate structure. sometimes windows lose sight that ben ashburn yours flow through. the entities exist, it's your personal tax rates important here. any kind of deal has to really include corporate and personal side because they are intermingled. dagen: this is a linchpin of what's going on in the white house and congress right now. we talk about debating how to raise revenue, but the sticking point will be, do you cut the top tax rate for wealthier
6:26 am
americans? that also applies to small business. that is by conservatives, kind of why hard-core republicans want to see that happen. they want the top rate to go down 33% and that is something president trump and paul ryan agree on. they want that top rate cut, cut big-time. maria: that is that the obama administration did not understand. they wanted to raise taxes on the rich with no thought about the heavy tail, you know, the impact on small business because that's actually job creators in the country. >> michael, to maria's point, waiting until 18 we will see a pullback in the market equities. what are you hearing from cps about timing, speed of implementation. >> it's interesting, i think about timing and speed and it's relevant for transformation change. if you look at what technology is doing in general, it is speeding up agility. it affects global trade,
6:27 am
industrialization. we have to continue to be agile of the country, corporations, et cetera. and change in the attacks on change is critical. technology has become the super sector here facilitating the need for effect change in a much more agile basis. maria: is that where jobs are? it feels like things are getting better. confirm this or deny this. the estimates are 180,000 jobs for the month of arch. the unemployment rate expected to remain a 4.7%. what are you seeing in terms of jobs right now and where's the growth and jobs? >> that's a fascinating question. gestation, automation, off shoring. there's actually truths about. the silver lining is 235,000 jobs in february. we think it will be a continued upward trend. maria: the numbers this week geared >> exactly. the silver lining is the fact that technology is creating new
6:28 am
jobs and while certain jobs will disappear and they are disappearing, data, analytics, robotics, automation will continue to permeate. that plays to the strengths of the lendale's who have strong technological backgrounds and are engaged in the thought process. i think this job creation as the world paydays. >> that requires training. >> retraining in training. workers across the entire schematic. >> one of the leaders out there today committed to retrain over 100,000 of his employees. at at&t. he's doing an amazing job of taking ownership to create the right kind of talent, not relied on h. one v. >> that's what we are doing at their own people today is continuing to shift their skill sets. maria: really important insight. thank you for joining us. coming up, protection or intrusion. technology giants are banning together against a court ruling
6:29 am

6:32 am
history on capitol hill. the senate could invoke the nuclear option as republicans are looking to confirm judge neil gorsuch to the supreme court. >> i've come to the conclusion that elevating judge neil gorsuch to the supreme court bench would merely grantee more of the same of the roberts' court. >> that last year was robbed. not just from president obama but for the american people by republicans in the senate when they treated garland with such disrespect. maria: the fall-out from the possible vote this morning. the picture is worth a thousand words but not your life, a detail while woman falls while trying to take a selfie in a bridge in california. we've got the details. taking a hit in massachusetts, the latest as 8,000 uber and lyft drivers failed background checks in the state. they have failed the background
6:33 am
checks, 8,000 of them. be careful what you post. what you need to know after a court rules and market action this morning, take aa look after a volatile section yesterday. the tow industrial, s&p and nasdaq all higher after a big reversal of fortune yesterday on the heels of federal reserve minutes. whether he tell you what those minutes suggest yesterday. in europe declines across the board. cac quarante moving into positive territory in paris. although ftse is down and the dax is down a quarter of a percent. the nikkei average wos performer 1 and a half percent. mother nature putting the masters in the rough and one of the biggest stars could miss the tournament. major obstacles putting a damper on golf's biggest week. starbucks baking up a cherry pie, the new drink to help you cool down as the weather heats up. setting stage for nuclear showdown senate democrats say that think will filibuster a
6:34 am
closure vote clotur vote. permanently changing the filibuster rules to confirm the president's pick for the high court. republican senator slammed the democrats on after the bell yesterday for forcing this vote to come to this. >> i think the democrats are so much better at loss the election and they look like idiots. one of the finest judges in the country, one of the most winning personality, he has a wonderful reputation and wonderful jurist and treated like he shouldn't be combifn a -- confirmation vote will come tomorrow night.
6:35 am
what would gorsuch do for the bench? >> he's replacing scalia. all they are doing is reestablishing what the balance was before justice scalia's passing. judge roberts -- excuse me, justice kennedy is the swing vote. the swloij decides. maria: they changed the rules. rules are changed forever? >> judge, this nuclear -- harsh term. >> they will caulk discussion and pull the trigger, how does that work? >> remember, it's been utilized by the democrats in the past for the federal district court judges as well as the court of
6:36 am
appeals judges. they were the first ones who instituted the nuclear option, so all they are going to do is take a vote, stop the filibuster and i don't believe a filibuster has ever been used on a judicial candidate. this is the first time we are seeing this as a weapon. so they are going to utilized what the democrats had put in place, that being the nuclear option because what's good for the goose is good for the -- >> when i look at what the american people are viewing this as, it's just looking like there's no hope for republicans and democrats to ever work together to see something you're going to do this and you're going to do worse. do you think this signal that is there's a bigger problem and do you think that changing this rule forever is a big deal, is it going to be a problem moving forward? >> no, i don't believe it's a big deal. i don't think it's going to be a
6:37 am
problem moving forward. the election has spoken. they want president obama to appoint the net next supreme court judge and there's nothing that this individual, judge gorsuch, has done that they could point to. he's eminently qualified. dagen: you know what's appalling the desperation of the liberals that they introduced phoney bologna allegations. what is essentially the definition of a medical term. you actually had publication
6:38 am
writing about esophageoal trachea, that's what they are hanging their hat on, i just find that their desperation is over the top. maria: don't you think people find that as well. >> yes, well it's been one after the other. east antiwomen and nothing is going the change, they say he's antigay marriage and antithat -- that didn't work. they try to -- they tried one argument after another and none of them have worked and now they are at this? [laughter] >> the truth is, i'm sorry, they don't mind who is put up, they are going to oppose it. maria: because it's obama's pick. >> this is bringing it into balance. it's the next one that president trump will get to appoint that
6:39 am
should be the issue. >> they may very well be if it's a liberal. maria: let me ask you if it's an invasion of privacy or safety precaution. highest court ruling this week that the police can seize someone's facebook activity. microsoft, grade schoolle, twitter all supporting facebook's appeal on this but what does this move mean on privacy if police say, i'm seizing this face back data from you? >> well, these were warrants that were issued by a judge after an affidavit was presented establishing probable cause. the individual with the right to challenge it is the criminal himself or not the entity that's holding the evidence and that's all facebook is. if i'm silly enough to go out and run a marathon at the same
6:40 am
time, i'm claiming that i'm disabled under social security, they have a right to seize that. what's offensive about it is he filed 382 subpoenas. it almost looks like a fishing expedition honestly and about 100 people were arrested, 60 convictions occurred. but what the court of appeals said and correctly said, you don't have standing, facebook, to challenge the individual rights. facebook is simply holding it. i believe the trial judge in that face wrote that if a landlord tried to cross a subpoena, that would be improper, they don't have standing to do that. only the defendant does in new york.
6:41 am
dagen: these were in some instances individuals who were on disability who had photos on facebook of them deep-sea fishing, like catching giant fish, riding a wave runners, were collecting tens of thousands of dollars of disability payments and they busted them and caught them. maria: wow. we know when the da joined us here he was not happy with the technology companies. remember when he wanted access to the phones to uncover murderers and they weren't getting any cooperation from the tech companies -- dagen: basically giving cover to and protect child molesters and drug dealers. it's what the technology companies have been doing quite frankly. >> in the old days we hired a private detective to see the person that was on disability out bowling and now we go to facebook. >> the court of appeals does not
6:42 am
address the merits of the case. they simply say you don't have standing and that's it. maybe there is a way that you can do it and i believe jenni rivera, judge rivera in a concurring opinion said the same thing but i believe the decision is 100% correct. maria: we will be watching that one. judge, good to see you. we very much appreciate it. judge cavleo there. plus whipping up new drinks, the cool beverages starbucks added to menu. we are going check them it and give them a try coming up ray'. last year, he said he was going to dig a hole to china.

7:04 am
of the house intelligence committee devin nunes accused the obama administration of improperly surveilling the trump team before the inauguration. republican leaders are now calling for an investigation into rice's actions. watch. >> intelligence committees in the house and the senate will get to the bottom of all of these allegations. our focus is on the agenda, it's on moving the country forward. i think that's a decision for members of congress but i would say that the american people have a right to know. >> the white house has no reason at all to be unmasking names like this. there just isn't. it's not their decision, it's the decision of the intelligence community before that point and it just makes us wonder why was she willing to do that if she did. maria: president trump told new york times that he thinks rice committed a crime. congressman peter king says that rice was filed included information about the everyday lives of people she probed.
7:05 am
i mean, it's not just, lee carter, the actual documentation that what was on the phone call, what was the context of the phone call that they were surveilling, it's information about their everyday lives. lee: what did they find in the story goes on and on and on. people keep saying we are investigating the ties to russia. it seems that there's no evidence that anything happened. we are keeping talks about this. the bottom line here is i feel whether there's smoke, there's susan rice. it's over and over again. [laughter] maria: that's good. lee: they are not finding anything. this is -- maria: they are finding that she asked to unmask all of the american citizens' names in those -- in those surveillance reports from the telephones. that's what they are finding. >> she's always at the center of controversy. so while this, you know, is disappointing not surprising that her name would surface again.
7:06 am
maria: she went on five sunday shows and lied about benghazi? >> yeah. lee: why would anybody say anything about this and then ten days later here she is saying that she didn't. it's so -- it's so hard to know what to believe. dagen: she was it was not uncommon. well, it is uncommon to have -- to ask to have an individual's name unmasked, it's really the purview and the role of investigators, intelligence officials who are looking into situations, not somebody in a political position. at best this is improper, at worst it's potentially illegal. i love how the democrats are trying to say this is just an attempt by the republicans to deflect attention away from the -- it's not -- it's an attempt to point toward potentially illegal behavior by the past
7:07 am
administration, period. maria: the president said that there could be criminality here. by the way, it's not even just that but yesterday on msnbc someone said that that was racially motivated. i mean, really? really? that that's why they are attacking susan rice because it's racial. she unmasked the names of individuals, they surveilled the trump team for no reason because it had nothing to do with russia, we know that also. dagen: also sexist. maria: she's a woman, black woman. dagen: when the left uses the sexism card, i always feel like it hurts all women because -- maria: i agree with you. dagen: again, it's an excuse for bad behavior, it's excuse for improper behavior and excuse for illegal behavior if you happen to be a liberal and i think that that hurts all women. maria: i agree with you.
7:08 am
the one question that needs to be answered, what did obama know, when did he know it, why did the president send susan rice to do this surveillance? that's the question, is the president behind it? >> this is vindication for the current administration. maria: it sure is. melania trump and queen rania visited a charter school. the president and the king abdullah condemn attack in syria, while the first ladies, the conversation was about fashionable wives. interesting to see the two together. two young first ladies of their countries and young and beautiful and fashionable. what can i say? >> unbelievable. look at the photograph. it looks like from a movie and not reality. maria: they are with betsy devos.
7:09 am
lee le melania focusing on education, acting more like a first lady than what we have seen her. i think this is really good for the country. i also by the way love the glamor coming back to the white house. maria: you're pushing back n. dagen: in defense of michelle obama. it's not the glamor coming back. i felt like michelle obama personally was glamorous -- lee: fair enough. i do think it's interesting the controversy about the portrait of the first lady with a giant engagement ring has been fascinate to go watch. maria: she's a wealthy woman. dagen: dolce gabana pushed back. the designer said, excuse me, they take great pride in dressing her. she wore and paid for their clothes for many, many years. remember the outfit that she wore at the republican -- was it the republican convention she bought online.
7:10 am
maria: dolce and gabana has been supportive of first lady melania trump and i like that because there were so many retailers and designers that shunned her for absolutely no reason whatsoever but dolce and gabana showed courage. dagen: very much so. >> no comment. [laughter] maria: nothing to say about dolce? >> no. maria: let's talk about the president of china. president trump will meet with xi jinping. first meeting since president took office. jeff flock is in palm beach, florida. tell us what to expect. what are you hearing, good morning to you. jeff: beautiful sunrise, indeed, maria, somewhere off in the distance. perhaps you see mar a law -- mar-a-lago. a lot of talk today that the president engaged in before he ran for president. it will be interesting to see how that squares with the president today.
7:11 am
i take you back to tweets maybe four or five years ago, tough talk about china. china is neither ally or friend. they want to beat us and own our country. he later said china was caught cheating in the olympics, that's the chinese mo, why cheat and steal in all international dealings. lots of tough talk from the president. the agenda today, in addition to the north korea situation, mostly about business, i think, it's fair to say, everything from trade was the president says has been unfair to the u.s., to state subsidies to chinese businesses which has created unlevel playing field and caused the dumping of dumping of chinese products like steel and currency manipulation which bob knows about as former auto maker ceo. the president in addition to tough tweets, tough talk on the campaign trail as well. listen to just a couple of them to re -- refresh.
7:12 am
>> china is going to have more respect for us. they have no respect. they think we are a bunch of dummies. jeff: how will all that play together? was that in the chinese president's briefing book, i don't know. we were told there's negotiation ongoing now, maria, as to whether there will be a joint press conference. as you know president trump loves press conference. the chinese president on the other hand rarely does. we will see -- maria: that's why it's so interesting because the president of china usually doesn't things like that but there's talks like that that they will have a double press conference which is a range and it's optimistic to hear that. jeff: kind of cool. maria: jeff, thank you. >> nice to hear from him. maria: jeff flock in palm beach this morning. coming up, meanwhile android phones at risk. how sophisticated hacks can take

7:23 am
ellen, great to see you? >> good morning, maria. maria: you have your finger on the pulse on putting people to work in the white-collar space. where are the jobs? >> where are the jobs? what we have right now is a head-scratching job market. if you look at global gdp, india and china it's not exactly robust but we are adding jobs. good news is the numbers are the numbers. health care professional services, the same thing we have been saying are two hot areas. we have a happy spike in durable goods, manufacturing, construction, mining, really excite to go see that and hopefully sustainable. the other thing i think that's excite asking merging tech. here in new york city, silicon valley if we pull job postings that are covering the market which are start-ups, 18,000 jobs
7:24 am
posted in new york city alone for what is silicon valley, developing and starting new companies. nyu has 70,000 post negotiation the health care. maria: healthcare technology is where the growth is. that makes sense because we are living longer, the wellness story and obviously technology. >> what are you seeing in your market? typically are people going outside to bring talent in, how is all of that working for you? >> bob, it's an exciting time to be in our industry. >> yes. >> talent is the secret weapon. technology while it is tremendously evolving it's a commodity. if you don't do it, you die, but if you do it, you don't get ahead. >> yeah. >> as a result we are seeing it -- we are seeing it everywhere, development, all of that. lee: it's a really important point. technology without talent becomes meaningless in many
7:25 am
ways. what i'm curious about is so many people said these jobs, manufacturing jobs are gone and never coming back, we are seeing them coming back, what's your view, are they coming back the question is is it sustainable? >> the answer is stay tune. what kind of manufacturing jobs are these? obviously we would love them to be big manufacturing, we know that's not likely indicative as of yet because we have to rebuild infrastructure in that's going to happen. do i hope it's small business manufacturing, the company in up state new york that produces, you know, metal boxes or whatever, that would be exciting because that would help local communities. >> restrictions on the h1v controversy out there, is that having a positive impact on your business? >> you know, bob, the whole immigration issue is critical to the workforce planning of the nation. i have friends in up state new york, it's critical for them,
7:26 am
without the visa programs they literally can't staff the farms. on the professional side, earnings, -- engineers, manufacturing, data analytics engineers, true scarcity. dagen: the trump administration did reopen the h1v1 visa in the last week and it was some small restrictions on trying to crack down on companies who use the h1v1 visa and abuse it to import people and get -- outsource jobs and get rid of people here which we have seen time and again and particularly american who is work on phone banks. >> yes. dagen: basically technology phone reps and things of that nature. so that's necessarily a bad thing for job market. >> no, not at all. it's all part of the workforce mix and i hope the government does smart things with it to
7:27 am
enable the growth with the talent necessary because if not it chokes. maria: right, but is the onus on government -- >> spot on. while we want to trust the education system, that's a whole topic for another day and absolutely, positively investment to bring people from base level, competency to a level that would have big impact in the company. maria: we had that at ge, being at cnbc i was able to take training classes in ge and it was incredible. >> corporation that is do that, maria, when you invest in capital, you immediately depreciate the value after the time you bolt it down. when you invest in individuals, there's a double -- one, you're showing appreciation, what the
7:28 am
person's value appreciates and i really applaud corporation that is do that, maria. maria: very valuable. >> on that topic, we love to see human capital on the balance sheets. we did a study that there's $1,200,000,000,000,000, $1,200,000,000,000,000 of hidden capital creating productivity and 20 trillion in capital. where is productivity coming from in it's coming from people. maria: it's all about people. always great insights from you. you said health care, you said technology, that's where the jobs are, we are going to see if they were there jobs in march when we have full coverage and analysis on job's march report. 8:00 a.m. eastern, jobs in america, join us for special coverage of the job's number tomorrow beginning at 8:00 a.m. eastern. the path to replacing obamacare is not getting clearer.

price. our top stories this half hour. can the white house revive the healthcare deal. fox news reports that vice president mike pence met with paul ryan last night to talk about the next steps for replacing obamacare. yesterday the vice president said there was no timeline in place for new gop legislation just yet. the republicans are united in our commitment to keep the promise we made to the american people years ago to repeal and replace obamacare. clearly a few weeks back our congress was not ready. cynically no one up at any time line on they're a are good faith discussions underway. maria: house speaker paul ryan also said the deal could take months doing this right now is express script ceo kent wentworth. so you run the largest

your company negotiates drug prices on behalf of insurers and employers. tell us out president trumps promise to bring down costs of jobs can actually take place. it was stated to run and forbes magazine. it ran on march 30. >> i was very excited to actually see and hear the competition also i believe c is for creating competition. creating access to bio similar. the first two things in the op-ed or having the fda really great competition then we could can go to work and express it. the second part of that is obviously inside the
7:37 am
similar specialty drugs. if you look in the exchanges today and the biggest challenge that payers had have on the pharmacy side has been biological drugs. we don't had access to that that would save our country over the next decade. if we got a dozen of those approved over the next timeframe. i think having that is an important step there. in addition reforming medicare part d so that the members our incentive to use those. very important and i think from a legislative and regulatory standpoint we can see the path there. we have a bucket of things that were recommended. you can see 15 ideas we have. you're making all really good points and it sounds like you're talking about something from 30,000 feet up.
7:38 am
most people are saying okay fine. i'm worried about my life-saving drugs and the fact that i have to pay all of this money out of pocket for drugs that are important to save my life. the myelin ceo recently said that the middleman was the price of the epipen's to rise. civic raise the price and i think managing what we received that 274 out of the 608 was what we have managed. doesn't the price go down when it goes to generic? >> that's why we dropped it to $300. only after you hiked it up to $600.
7:39 am
it doesn't make it worth $300. maria: what is your response to that. >> heather brasch and mylan said there product to a price they could. i've heard for their explanations at said we need to invest a billion dollars to create awareness. it has saved lives. investing a billion dollars to make it more available and make people more aware as a debatable proposition. i know this today. they have this awareness. take the billion dollars and lower the price. that's what we would like to see. >> you say you're giving most of the rebate back to payers. what is it doing when the pair has a high deductible. and they came and afford because they can't get to their deductible? >> it really does this depend on the players in the plan. it is really planned biplane that we administer. that is making the decision to take the rebate that we do
7:40 am
pastor. heather portrays the pair as a middleman. it's actually the end pair. they choose whether or not to lower the premium to that member or to build it into co-pays. we do had plans to build it into co-pays and were working with a number of development partners to take that even further. but i can take up till now the majority of payers had chosen to keep that. and then build out-of-pocket maximums to protect folks from the truly catastrophic costs. the truth is some people say yours is an integrated model. are you looking to change your modeling anyway to address us because a patient is exposed to be a consumer being a consumer until the deductible is reached. >> we have said this.
7:41 am
we want to move the rebate to the point of sale for the member so that they can buy down with a member is out-of-pocket. we're also working with them to re- develop the plan design. during the aca one of the consequences was integrating deductibles for pharmacy and medical creating a very large overhaul deductible they suddenly hit the high prices. the other part that were doing building additional tools so they can navigate and figure out a front for the costs what is the best cost alternative. that investments had sped up dramatically to allow folks to low --dash -- know their balances. i know you have a solid trends. you're trying to come up with answers here. the fact is the markets watching the situation and
7:42 am
whether or not juergen a change the way you operate your stock is down 30% in all of this because people are worried in fact that you will see the government clampdown on this. what changes are you going to make as a result of this to make customers, clients and patients feel that they don't go bankrupt despite pain for the drugs that they so dearly need. >> the things that were doing to ensure, again you saw our drug trends dropped 20% last year. our model is working well. we look at medicare part d it's working extra nearly while for the government. our largest client. we are saving them tens of millions of dollars by making a simple retail change. our model is very well-positioned. our stock price which was net never reflective of our earnings growth last year was a result of a couple things. headlined risk over time i believe it will dissipate.
7:43 am
we also had a situation that is a one off a situation that took our stock price down and that we are working through. it's not like -- reflected in the fact that it sidle -- salad and what we need today. maria: patients are looking uninsured because they are paying the price until they reach the deductible. we can talk about from 30,000 feet but when a person is looking at even their insulin payments skyrocketing things that they need every day this is where the problem becomes. tim, good to see you. coming up the carrier that will let you binge on games of throne free. back in a moment.

8:24 am
hilsenrath good to see you. reporter: great to be here maria: interesting to hear this while talking about a rollback what do you see as implications for financials. >> well you know, i would like to hear more about where that story came from, you know, cohn has been one of the most outspoken people inside the administration, for rolling back dodd-frank legislation. you know what you are talking about sounds like -- like bringing glass-steagall back, and i just don't see how this administration gets behind something like that. maria: there are competing views within this administration in that regard, right but i think one of the important and sort of priority to this administration is the rollback of regulations including what you said dodd-frank. >> right. there competing views of generally been the nationalist steve bannon types against the wall street types, minute sean gary cohn i think we have to
8:25 am
tread carefully on reports. >> you don't believe it. >> we just came out of this era with dodd-frank that was you know almost smothering for banks now this would have real negative impact what is the current read on cap of 50 billion, a lot of talk maybe will go to 150, 250. >> right. >> what do you think about that will that actually happen? is that interpretation or just -- or legislation. >> i think an area there is some agreement you know even at the fed i think there is a view that maybe these dodd-frank regulations and this is the fed under janet yellen who is a democrat very supportive of dodd-frank. there is a view that it may be hit too hard on smaller banks i think they can try to narrow the scope where some bigger capital regulations hit but raising the ceiling of how big a bank has to be before they go through things like stress

tests higher capital requirements. maria: jon tax reform for a moment markets looking for policy they want a clearer picture in terms of timeline on tax reform for path in that regard white house looks to take lead speaker ryan well, listen to what he said yesterday. >> the baseline issues also we will need more time to do tax reform. >> we are closer in agreement on handgun than tax reform, house has a plan, the senate doesn't quite have one yet they are working on one white house hasn't nailed it down so even three entities don't -- aren't on the same page yet on tax reform. maria: so three plans, he says he has time are they going to face a similar fight on tax reform that they did on health care? because of the border-adjustment tax possibly of vat tax? this is the issue, it blew up health care is it going to blow up tax reform. >> it looks a lot like health care situation, in part because what we have right now
8:27 am
is the house has a plan, ryan and brady have a plan they put out the senate doesn't like it accuse as you say there is a border-adjustment tax taxes imports, the white house is very wary of it what we have been struck by in our reporting at "the wall street journal" is the white house doesn't have a plan, and neither does senate white house still trying to figurative it out. maria: i don't know about that steen moven mnuchin has a n from 7 to 3 lowering tax rates from 33% 25% to 12% those are three brackets, he talked about obviously, the corporate tax rate getting encouragement to bring money back to u.s. why overseas there is a plan there. >> there is not agreement on plan you haven't seen white house put it out what they have is they have a lot of ideas. but for one haven't figured
8:28 am
out how to pay for all of them, so the house has border-adjustment tax pays for lower corporate rates white house treasury have not figured out how to do that. >> dagen most important timeline waiting for 17 or 18 what is your thought here? dagen: "the wall street journal" today one white house if i believe says looks like going to miss august timeline that mnuchin laid out there, that they are not couldn't get anything done if you move into 2018 so you have a very a small window that is closing. >> exactly, their window is basically august to december. and they have a lot of work to do between august and december. to come up with something that everybody agrees on, and then deal with the politics and the house and senate, to get it passed, and to build a coalition, you know we talk about a white house plan, the white house is trying to work with democrats on this, and getting democrats and republicans on border on taxes, boy talk about a high hurdle.

8:35 am
mar-a-lago today joining -- me fox business exclusive cofounder ceo of soho china with us, great to see you. >> zbooj. >> thank you so much for joining us they call you woman built beijing. >> soho china has done incredible development throughout beijing shanghai. >> that is right a lot of builds. >> congratulations i know you open lots of builds here in u.s. >> no, small. >> some stakes. >> the relationship between u.s. and china as president is meeting with the president of china. what would you like to see come out of this meeting today. >> what i think there has been so much uncertainty over the months between u.s.-china even u.s.-china relations one thing all hoping to see is a bit more certainty, what will be the future of the u.s.-china relations. will there be a trade war or not? so that is something i think all the chinese are watching,
8:36 am
and seeing the first time president xi and president trump are meeting hopefully something positive will come out. >> so it is being talked on the ground in china. >> very much. >> i think people watching so closely because first it a cup as a surprise when president trump dropped about dropping one-china policy has been foundation for u.s.-china relations, 30, 40 years so dropping that was -- was scary. of the and everyone was happy to hear that president trump actually came back to the one-china policy. meaning that so that -- basically paved the way for this meeting to take place. and now i think the focus is on north korea and more so for china is trade. >> how worrisome is north korea situation on the ground? is this also a subject that the people talk about are
8:37 am
worried about. >> not so much in china despite so close, border from north korea but i think that is not much of a concern for china, case china and north korea always had a -- you know, a long relationship so i think that is never been much of a worry. but i think trade is on the line. >> i want to ask you about the business climate right now when together in davos a couple years ago you said to me china's red hot real estate market turned cold as ceo of largest office development company in beijing and shanghai you have a firsthand look into chinese rewhat can you tell us. >> the you are banization driving the real estate development in china is still continuing. for that the demand for apartment builds, still strong. but also much of the china chinese seize have been built go to beijing shanghai today you will see central business,
8:38 am
up build i think ice enough office building we run office building mainly day in, day out economy has slowed down somewhat from the peak few years ago to now, it is in a slower growth. close to 7% gdp growth so seeing builds still fully occupied not growing as much as say five years ago. >> you said recently i was reading an article you were quoted in you said much development has been done where is the growth then for example soho china you see what has already been done. >> right this is it, the -- the intense high growth time is probably past. that is when china growing gdp level at 14% company level growing -- double-digit every year now slower growth gdp growing at 7%, and companies
8:39 am
are growing less. but i think sometime obviously compared to any rest parts of the world higher growth economy. compared to our own past a slower froth. >> would you be more poised to invest more right now in china or the united states? i know you have investments in u.s. acquired a big stake in gm building in new york chinese investors looking to get into real estate market here china foreign direct investment in u.s. record high 45.8 billion dollars in 2016. what is your take on u.s. right now? >> i think from the real estate point of view i look at assets it is not cheap anymore, and this is probably you know, high point of the market if not peak of the market. so in terms of investment, this is this is not the best time to buy. but if you own something in the u.s. this is perfect you are asset shows higher.
8:40 am
>> let me turn to your story, because forbes rank you tenth on 2017 list of richest self-made women in the world. >> oh. >> 3.2 billion dollars. and your story just phenomenal you grew up in cultural revolution under mao how were you as a child in some cases poverty stricken. >> in we grew up with nopg cut rally revolution social state nothing had anything hardly enough food to eat china opened door 30 years ago then opportunity came people like miles had opportunity to do business. and because china had no business before, and all this happened last 20, 30 years, so it was like, a great opportunity for anyone who wants to build business, so i
8:41 am
am lucky in the right place right time in history. >> i don't believe right place right time had incredible encouragement from your mother i know that really extraordinary when i think about the fact that so many women have been able to rise to billionaire status in china how is it possible that it is almost easier to become that get that kind of stature than in america how do you do that. >> you have in america you have well established industries hard for any start-up so many won coming new to build anything that is why you see newer billionaires and successful businesspeople in the district -- as in -- china is the whole country is a start-up, so everyone who wanted to come into business had no competitor before everything is -- fresh. that bass 20 years ago, because today it is different you know, today companies and industries already accomplished so i think the
8:42 am
opportunities lies in the new industry field technology areas that are less established, but real estate harder today than 20 years ago. maria: harder in china. >> why as that. >> companies established industries established opportunities largely gone you need just look so much harder to get opportunities. >> you are going to be speaking at women in the world conference today at lincoln center you and i both there. >> thank you for moderating. >> looking forward to that why a furthermore like this tell us what you are expecting to hear what we should expect at woman in the world conference. >> i love this, because i think this i know tina brown women in world conference has mixture of amazing women, from business world politics from ngos, refugees people all amazing stories of women, i didn't used to think much
8:43 am
about women's i used to think women's conference only for women heard by men not just women but having been to quite a few events i realize there is a incredible solidarity, and just hearing amazing stories is -- liberating. >> yours is incredibly empowering your story as real estate titan that you are have you worked with donald trump, of course, is real estate of his oen before president trump. >> i have not. >> you have not worked with him in any details do you expect a lot of deals to -- to trigger this year in u.s. as a result of valuations you areseeing or things too expensive. >> i think things are toov examine expensive to see a lot of deals i i continue to see chinese building at peak of price. >> waldorf-astoria. >> see you later this morning at the women in the world
