6:01 am

6:02 am
best performer kospi and shanghai. all those stories coming up this morning and joining me to talk about it lee carter and david webb. >> happy friday. maria: here we are on the day that we are expecting to hear more about the healthcare plan and we know right off the bat four senators pushing back, kevin. kevin: immediately, they wasted no time. he was on the floor and you even have senator ted cruz already has an amendment ready to go. so this is highlighting how divisive it's going to be. i don't think this can be done before the july 4th holiday. absolutely not just seeing the contention that's come from it immediately after its come out. it's surprising. they already have four senators going against it. maria: the message you criticized in the past lee carter, are they telling the story this time? lee: i don't think they are telling the story right. we were just looking at, david
6:03 am
and i were looking at components of the bill and there's a lot of really positive things as its written even in summary but i don't think they are getting out there and telling the story. democrats are coming out and attacking it for things that aren't necessarily true. preexisting conditions addressed in there, other things that are addressed in there that people are saying are not. so i think that the republicans really need to take control of the narrative and if there is going to be some fighting as we are seeing, we are trying to make this better, let's start having discussions and stop being obstructionists. maria: we've got this topic on the table. we have a lot coming up this new york. new york congresswoman claudia is with us and mac and the man who survived the benghazi terrorist attack and coauthored 13 hours, inside account of what happened in benghazi. big program ahead. let's get right to it. getting to 51 is the goal after unveiling senate proposal to repeal and replace obamacare,
6:04 am
majority leader mitch mcconnell next mission persuading members to back it and vote for it. four conservative senators will not support the bill without changes. they include kentucky senator rand paul, texas senator ted cruz, utah senator mike lee and wisconsin senator ron johnson, all pushing back on this bill. here is how the two of them explained thrair positions on capitol hill yesterday. >> i cannot support the current bill. we are open to negotiation, but we want to bill to look more like a repeal. we are afraid that when we read the bill that it actually looks like reiteration or keeping of obamacare. >> it's not enough to pass a bale that has obamacare repeal in the title. we actually has to have legislation that fictions the underlying problem. i want to get to yes and the way to get to yes is fix the underlying problems. lower premiums and i will happily be part of it. maria: the bill proposes cig in
6:05 am
effect antly overhauling medicaid, the program that currently ensures 1 in five americans, it would, however, keep in place protections those with preexisting conditions and dependent coverage until age 26. on the tax side of it it will virtually eliminate all taxes an fees, nearly all taxes and fees nearly obamacare and repeal laws mandate on individual and employer mandate. former president obama slammed a bill in post on facebook, he wrote this in part, simply put if there's a chance you might get sick, get old or start a family, this bill will do you harm. joining us now from washington republican congressman steve of ohio who serves as chairman as the republican congressional committee. congressman, thank you very much for joining us. what's wrong with this bill? >> well, you know this bill is a senate bill and we are going to respect the senate's process, the senate respected our process. i think they've actually made improvements to our bill. they've made the preexisting condition coverage even
6:06 am
stronger. so, you know, i'm going to let the senate work out their bill but i think they've actually improved on the house bill. it's another step forward. maria: it's not the step forward though that you want, right, you have four of your colleagues pushing back saying they will not sign the bill, they will not vote for it. >> well, every bill is in negotiation, maria, until people get the yes and, so most people don't take the opening offer when they are buying a car or when they're passing a bill. lee: you see how president obama reacted to the bill and there are folks saying that his attacks on the bill aren't necessarily true. how do you respond to what he's saying about the bill? >> well, his attacks on the bill are not necessarily true. in fact, the bill strengths protections on preexisting condition and it -- it brings back to essential health benefits that he attacks in his post, you know, the president should do what most presidents do and that's go enjoy his life
6:07 am
because he had his time in the sun and now it's time for other folks. kevin: congressman, do you think this bill can get done by the july 4th deadline as mitch mcconnell wanted it to be dope just given that there are four senators lost, one of them who golfed with the president all day long and who knows the medical space more than most people in congress. i mean, it's senator rand paul, do you think he can get it done? >> artificial deadlines are a bad idea, so i don't think they should have an artificial deadline. i think they should try to get this bill done when it's ready and so they need to get and when it's ready, that means they have 51 votes potentially including the vice president, hopefully not. maria: david webb. david: congressman, i like the debate, i like the idea that different ideas are going on the table. it's completely different than the democrat process. i'm with you, artificial deadlines don't work, however, the messaging on this that we
6:08 am
talked about earlier is an issue and it's not about messaging for the sake of marketing but pointing out the points of the bill and how they will affect people and working around the cbo score. they've got it wrong in obamacare. how are you and the senate going to work together to make sure you inform the people that this is actually the points that are good for you, this is what we are going to fix and shouldn't you include the hhs portion of this because that's not being discussed? >> that's a great point because there's a lot of misinformation out there about this bill, about the house bill and we do need to take charge of the communications and make sure people know that this bill aims to make health care and insurance more affordable for people who are healthy yet protect people who are sick. it's really that simple but it's complicated at the same time. maria: well, let's talk about taxes for a second. fox business network charlie gasparino that house leadership
6:09 am
including speaker paul ryan showing signs of softening stance on border adjustment tax, where are you in terms of common ground of the tax portion of this and that border adjustment tax in particular? >> well, on t 0% of the -- 90% of the republicans are 100% together, border adjustment tax in concept i like, i've been skeptical on ability to get done but there's becoming a consensus that the border adjustment tax just does not have the critical mass in the house or the senate to be included and so the thicks that will be included in this bill is a lower rate. it will be for c corporations and entities together. we will do holistic tax reform, we will simplify our tax system, i think it's going to be a good bill that's going to help the american people and help super charge the american economy so
6:10 am
i'm excited about getting this thing done but we still have a few more months to colease and but i feel like everybody is moving the same direction finally. i don't think the border adjustment tax as its currently configured can be in the bill. maybe there's a way to change it around and include it or maybe we will go a different direction. that's still working progress. maria: everybody is moving in the right direction except the four senators that have pushed back on health care and everything gets backed up if you don't get health care and you don't get that vote over the short term. so you're the chairman of the congressional committee and your party won two special election this is week and yet you're not able to get legislation over the finish line, can you walk us through how you see this happening, what's the path given these four senators pushback? >> well, again, i don't think we need to let artificial deadlines create same problems in the senate like the house.
6:11 am
when we had artificial deadlines we hit brick walls in the house. get the votes on passing this bill and then pass it which is how you're supposed to pass legislation, we've got it done. maria: right, so what are you saying? >> my lesson to the senate is, stop talking about artificial deadlines, it gets people on cable news talking about how things aren't getting done when frankly the story should be that most senators are behind this and that there's a few people that we still need to work with and that's what's going on in the senate but do i think they will get it done july 4th, probably not. we don't need artificial deadlines. maria: is 2017 an artificial deadline? we are taking the fact that you have an election coming up in 2018 and your colleagues on the left want to impeach the president and you're hoping you get nothing done, so 2017, artificial deadline? >> health care reform and tax
6:12 am
reform need to happen this year but because frankly we all know the silly season starts next year, the election season and artificial deadline is to say we have to do it next week or next two weeks but in concept we all know it needs to happen and frankly i hope it will be retro active to january 1st of 2017 so that we can start to get our economy moving faster. maria: all right, we will be watching congressman. thank you so much. we can certainly watch the process. steve stivers joining us there. the tropical depression caused major damage with tornadoes and heavy flooding in the gulf coast region. america's banks passing stress test proving they can pass 2008 crisis. we will check next.

6:17 am
stock basically is flat going into friday trading, maria. and the federal reserve's stress test are making the case for easing bank rules, the fed saying the largest u.s. banks survive a hypothetical stress test and could continue lending after a deep recession. this does give ammunition to the trump administration. they want to crack down on regulations put in place after the financial crisis. financial sector, though, the stocks anyway looking good in the premarket. back to you. maria: bank of america best performer there. stress test, they've become easier. the banks are holding a lot of cash, kevin kelly. kevin: they are beating the requirements. the talk is about what they are going to do with that, are they going to have more distributions. maria: pay dividends. kevin: that's the biggest topic of conversation that everyone is having.
6:18 am
maria: do you think we will get more dividends? kevin: absolutely. so people are starting to pick and choose but the biggest issue we are having right now and why part-time aren't putting money to work even given the news stories is because the economy isn't doing well as well as interest rates. so with a flattening yield curve, the difference between 10-year treasury rate and two-year, it's flat, they can't really make money. when they are taking deposits, they're not making money in what they can lend at. maria: would you buy financials here? >> wait and see if you can get something done in washington. they've come back to november levels. maria: hay sure have. oil snaps a 3-day losing streak despite investor concern over oversupply glut and oil which, of course, is up.

6:22 am
maria: welcome back, let's take a look at oil this morning as you see it's higher up half a percent. crew keeping the momentum after snapping the session streak yesterday. oil on track for the worst half performance in 20 years. when oil prices go down, stocks also go down. joining us right now regent
6:23 am
atlantic ceo chris cordero. $3billion in assets under management. do you allocate capital base on where oil is? >> we allocate capital based on where cheap stocks are. maria: you're looking for value? >> we are looking for value and we are finding bargains in the oil space. maria: tell us about it. >> long-term oil about $50 a barrel is where it should be. when you look at it around 42 and oils have taken a hit, it's a good buying opportunity. that's one of the few areas of the market that we find it's cheap and attractive. we look at companies like total, you're getting better than 12% dividend yield and you're getting paid for waiting price of oil to come back. kevin: high expenditures that are embedded, they are highly levered and paying out significant amount of dwid ends and the last time oil was around this price, people were very
6:24 am
worried about the dividend and coverage ratio and that's because in the business model they are forecasting $50 a barrel for oil but we are not close to that. >> that's a concern for total, the major oils are able to produce and be profitable prices per barrel. we feel that capital structure is at risk but it's worth taking that risk. maria: would you put new money to work in stocks right here? >> i would in stocks that are selling in bar gains. kevin: how is the fed impacting your decision-making when you're putting new money to work because we are talking aboil and oil has been saved when the dollar goes down but this didn't happen this time around and part of that has to do with the fed, how is that impacting your investment style? >> the side that we like the fed is doing, it's increasing rates, we like the financials. every time the fed hikes rates,
6:25 am
they are adding money to bottom line and all of a sudden things that a lot of their money market activities that have been unprofitable are now becoming profitable for them. kevin: interesting. dodd-frank pull back and all the deregulation happening, is that another thing indicating -- >> sure, dodd-frank really hampered the financials and having some potential relaxation in those regulation that is should help long-term. maria: do you like citigroup in particular? >> citigroup will benefit from rising rates and the other thing they will benefit from is truly a multinational bank. they have huge presence in emerging economies. they continue to come online and grow and we will see good things out of citi. maria: how much of philosophy is on a tax plan that you're expecting in 2017?
6:26 am
>> largely none. maria: you don't think they will get this done? >> i wish it was, we do financial planning for our clients, that would be out boom. maria: does the market selloff if what you're saying comes through that they won't do it? >> i don't know that the market is expecting. i'm certainly not expecting it. maria: at this point, lee, markets are trading and profits up 6% in the second quarter, t fundamental, chris not even worried about the tax -- lee: i think, though, like you we are hearing that the confidence level that something is going get done this year is really on the decrease and i don't think whether you're talking about investors or you're talking about the american people. >> tax reform is so complex, you've got to get so many people on board. i don't think that trump is able to put a coalition together in congress to get anything done on the tax side. maria: wow.
6:27 am
>> but also brings the point that it's baked in. they look at what they need to do and it goes back to not being able to depend on politicians to get it done which is a big danger to the republicans if they don't get something done. they're going home on break, stay in washington, get the job done and then you'll adjust, other industries will adjust. maria: you say they better not take the vacation? >> yeah. i'm sick of this. they go home and tell you they will talk to constituents, stay in washington, do your job just like i have to stay in my office or studio and do your job. maria: all right, we will leave it there. chris, good to see you. >> good to see you. maria: coming up outrage after johnny depp asks about assassinating president donald trump. it just will not stop after comedian kathy griffin posted a photo of bloody mask of the president. massive outrage once again. back in a minute

what do you think of that? >> about time. people have seen enough here is coming of men running around in tights for the last we 10 years and it is time for a female hero. maria: why is this resonating so much? it is doing really well. >> because it is different. i see a lot of movies directed by men, written by men and when you see a woman direct a film there are different sensibilities, things a man wouldn't do. when you see so much of something you are ready for something new. maria: i like it, it was good. another female director creating buzz this weekend is sofia coppola. she won the best director award for new film the big wheel which hit theaters later today. i want to get your reaction. >> the real southern hospitality. very important lesson. >> can i get you anything? >> the enemy is not what we
6:54 am
believe. >> what have you done to me? maria: this is called the beguiled, remake of the 1971 film of the same name starring clint eastwood. how do you think it will do? >> okay. she is only the second woman ever to win best director at can. this film is a remake am i am a fan of the original, she did a different take where it focuses more on the women and less on the male character and it is gothic, creepy, beautifully shot, well acted but i have to say i did like the original better. maria: we will see, the beguiled focus features. let's look at this. the star wars shakeup. lucasfilm announcing ron howard is going to step in as director
6:55 am
of the untitled han solo movie. production has been underway for heavier when the original directors were suddenly fired, they walked out earlier this week. >> i don't know that they walked out. they were asked to walk out. there view, they were fired basically. because they saw the on solo movie is more of a comedy. they are known for comedy. kathleen kennedy has a different vision for this. maria: star wars franchise has taken on a whole different -- everything. george lucas sold it. >> not only is it a brand but what they were making was not star warsy enough. they like a little bit of change to liven up but not a comedy. maria: people love it, the franchise continues to do well. the fact that they were pushing
6:56 am
back on the whole storyline and the boss said that is it, leave, you are done. >> you can't push back, you can't make an original piece of art with a franchise like that, just impossible. maria: what do you see this weekend? you have seen everything. >> i'm not going to see anything again. maria: the designer office supply the cost a fortune, product releasing its own brand and paperclip, you got to see this, the staggering price drag, we call it a paperclip. next hour of "mornings with maria" right here. ♪ ♪ i am not listening ♪

7:03 am
events. my story didn't change. my story was always a straight story but i did not tell you. maria: what does that mean? we have to look at that. last time i asked donald trump what he would do with jim comey he said we will see what happens. what does it mean we have to take a look at that? the president still adamant he did not obstruct the fbi probe into alleged russian meddling in the presidential election after comey testify the president asked him to let it go when talking about michael finance alleged connections to russia. joining us is small business owner claudia tenney. good to see you, thanks for joining us. what is your take of what is going on on the left, a lot of calls for nancy pelosi to step down. >> my financial services committee, maxine waters from california, she would do a great job helping the republicans keep the majority next year and just hoping they think that way, to continue the course they are on. maria: he wants her to stay where she is, this follows the president tweeting there could
7:04 am
be tapes after he said i hope -- jim comey better hope there are no tapes of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press. he told fox news there are no tapes. reaction? >> the president loves to tweet people, this from a guy who ingeniously rebranded islamic terrorists as losers. this is his plane speak he uses on twitter, times i wish he would -- i still think he should be on twitter but he should tone it down a little bit, do one less tweet or two less tweets, riling people up which is what he does but there is also a genius in what he does, he takes complex issue and makes it very simple for the american public because we are fighting against in many cases the media is part of the problem. they are not really reporting on
7:05 am
what the substance is and i am concerned and the person who is very conservative republican i think we are doing a lot in the house, getting a lot of things past, we not only on the floor, we marked up the flood insurance bill, reauthorization of the national flood insurance bill. a lot of things are not being talked about. we are talking major major policy shifts after eight years of president obama. just doesn't happen overnight, we are doing it in a deliberative way, we are doing the right thing, a lot of it is not exactly the way i want it. that is how government works. the congressional softball game, i am happy to have some singles and get scores later on. everybody is concerned about hitting a home run right out of the box and the president is working to work with us to find solutions that are realistic and we can get past. maria: i hear you but at the same time we have an election next year and that is why this is so important to get something done so the american people feel
7:06 am
tax reform, healthcare. the president has done a lot in terms of executive orders, tax reform over the finish line this year. >> tax reform a little later, a couple steps to take on that. some bills i like and some i don't like. don't know if you are a manufacturer or retailer, basically we can agree we need to lower taxes. as a person who represents a new york district taxes are one of the greatest concerns for my constituents and one thing that has driven a lot of businesses and a lot of people out of new york into places like florida and texas where there is no income tax, better for business for the environment. >> one of the most import things out of this health care bill we are seeing is it removes the obamacare taxes on investment.
7:07 am
the former small business owner that 3.8% is important to remove on that. can you talk how important it is, whether we can get sat 3.8% off of the obamacare tax. >> it is a huge problem for business like mine, we are a small business. the taxes, the employer mandate, individual mandate, all those things that were intended to get people enrolled, to reduce the rates have resulted in more people interestingly enough taking the penalty instead of signing up for healthcare so what do you have? more people who don't have healthcare, we chose to remove the tax and put incentives in place to encourage people to be responsible and create an environment they can have affordable insurance. our family business we had to go to much higher rates. we had a great insurance plan before obamacare, to partial
7:08 am
self insurance and other avenues we didn't want to choose but we want to take care of our employees, give them an opportunity to have healthcare at an affordable rate, 50 employees, we have to comply with the mandate and we lost a lot of great healthcare incentives, a small role area. we are trying to give ourselves a competitive edge by bringing employees on. we had a 401(k) before anyone else, we had healthcare law before many of our competitors and those are the things that gave us an edge. now mandates with the healthcare caused it to be more expensive and difficult for us to survive. >> i hear you and those are the things that continue. now let's get to the business of how you get business done in washington. your colleague was on the show earlier, he said we have 100% agreement on 90% of tax reform. the debate over the border adjustment tax.
7:09 am
part of the problem in washington is you don't extract pieces that don't work and get what needs to work done. the president, the agenda and executive orders, non-sexy stuff happening with the office of innovation, epa reform. why not do things like extract the border adjustment tax, get the tax reform passed by august which really matters, people see results from that. with all due respect you guys are going all on your brakes to tell us how you come to talk to us, the american people, my callers, my listeners across this country want to know why you don't stay in washington and get your job done. i know you might want to go home to your family but families out here need you to do your jobs. why not, no recess until you get tax reform. >> first of all it is ridiculous, i never worked harder in my life, i haven't been home in two weeks, i am working from 7:00 until 8:00 at
7:10 am
night. my freshman class -- >> it is not what people care about. wherever we work around america, your work is in washington dc. don't know why you are not staying and getting the job done. >> healthcare done before july 4th, not tax reform, there was never a plan, tax reform after the summer. the issue is a real one. what are you going to do? >> two things. we have an entire month, i would just as soon stay here and i speak with every member of the house, we want to get these packages done, we want to get them done tomorrow and work with the senate and get these things through. we have a resist movement not only in washington dc, they are in my district and i represent my district, for my constituents which i'm doing every weekend, balancing with fighting the
7:11 am
fight in washington dc against the so-called deep state, the bureaucrats, the lobbyists. i'm a business owner, i come to washington, i haven't even been endorsed by my local county republican committee, i came is an independent republican, both sides to try to stand as an independent and conservative which is one of the hardest things to do. from deep blue new york. i would like to work every day to make sure what we get for the american people and my constituents is going to grow my economy, reducing taxes, getting the healthcare problem solved, getting the choice tax passed which we did, getting it through the house as much as we can to roll back regulations that are hurting small businesses and banks and their ability to have access to lending. i unfortunately i know it is someone who is a media owner and someone from a conservative viewpoint i think it is unfair that the conservative side is
7:12 am
complaining we are not getting anything done. i invite all the conservative commentators to spend a day with, walk around and see how hard this is to try to get people to agree to what we know is the right thing for our constituents. it is a lot of work, a heavy toll but i appreciate -- see how hard we are working. i'm not going to speak for everyone but the new members who came here, fighting my way and making a lot of sacrifices, giving up my family business, my ability -- at home with my dog and my son and my family. >> next week, broadcasting from washington dc and i have been there six times in the last two months. i would love to see you and i will see you. >> spend a day and see how hard it is. maria: we have been hearing about a replacement for obamacare for seven years and to see this drag out the way it is
7:13 am
after hearing for so many years it almost feels like congress didn't expect the president to win and find yourself in this position. >> the promise was tax reform is going to get done, this is what we ran on and it is disappointing. but you are working hard. >> we passed the first step, we did our job in the house, let's get it done in the senate, put out a proposed bill, a draft, it is not perfect, let's get it done. i agree 100%. maria: thanks, very articulate, thank you very much. still had falling oil prices, how low can oil go. what are you expecting ahead of the fourth of july holiday weekend. $185 paperclip, social media comes undone after a take on office supplies, back in a minute.

7:33 am
they are averaging $2.28 nationwide. they are just $4. that was sent back in 2008. stephen, good to see you. expecting a rebound anytime soon. we are looking at low oil prices. that is the difference in year makes. as you pointed out we had have about a 9-dollar plunge in oil prices. now historically we look at a 1 dollar relationship a 9-dollar plunge has it there. it would bring it down to about $2.10 which is where we were last year right around this time. the big difference is the narrative has changed.
7:34 am
oil prices have bottomed in february. it was trending higher throughout the summer. all this hype and speculation that the actually had the ability to boost oil prices higher and indeed they tried doing that in november they are correct. one of the biggest things that has changed is that the u.s. is going to export 1 million barrels of oil a day out of texas and louisiana. it has completely shifted. going back to that. will we ever see oil backup. the geopolitical risk is out of a barrel of oil.
7:35 am
those things don't matter anymore. we are energy independent right now. will oil ever see those days and will we ever trade above that level. >> the frak is on. it's a very good thing because the united states has the most complex infrastructure and we could refine it. it's a very low priced crude oil. a lot of this excess oil here that we are producing is a very high quality oil. we need that cheaper oil. by allowing us to export. it's a very good thing.

8:03 am
stay with us for the big hour we kick off now with a rocky road ahead for the senate health care plan now, four republican senators have said they are coming out against the bill, saying it does not go far enough, former president obama has jumped back into the political fray. blake burman at with white house with latest. good morning to you. reporter: good morning to you numbers game on this one is very, very simple, no democratic snenators are expected to vote republicans can only have two senators fall off right now that number stands at four. those four republican senators are the following, they are ted cruz rand paul mike lee johnson say they cannot support this republican plan as it stance however they add, they are open to negotiations. take a listen to president trump on "fox & friends" this morning about those four very holdouts. >> they said very -- it is a very, very narrower path i
8:04 am
think going to get there we have four very good people that -- not that they are opposed they like to get certain changes, and we will see if we can take care. >> president obama, weighed in on the obamacare repeal and replace efforts yesterday writing in a lengthy post the following quote, the senate bill is not a health care bill, it is a massive transfer of wealth from middle class poor families to the richest people in america. yesterday nancy pelosi described it as a ruse for a tax bill. >> this bill that republicans put out is yet again a tax bill. disantagonized as health care bill they need this for tax breaks on the high end. >> mcconnell said he wants a vote in the nat potentially as soon as next week, here at the white house yesterday, they kept on saying that this is a negotiation phase, there is
8:05 am
very clearly here a gap among republicans that needs to get closed at some point here in the near future. maria: we will see about that when you see four senators coming out saying we can't sign on to this, you get worried because, you only have a couple days left in order to stick to a timeline i know our earlier guest said we don't want a timeline, the clock is ticking. >> clock is ticking frustrating to watch to say this is a fake deadline, no. it is a deadline. they ran on this promise to the american people, they american people wanted tax reform, they wanted health care reform, what is happening with republicans they are losing the health care debate because we are seeing obamacare is getting more particular not less pb, as they take time to get this done. >> well, look let's talk more about this joeng us is former white house chief of staff under president bill clinton mac mechan
8:06 am
mac. >> has what is your take you have seen in clinton white house you've got division, how do you see it? >> well, i think i have also seen, before, when president clinton put forward economic deficit instruction plan vote ever so tight that first year, had we not been able to pass that bill, in the first year, given the focus on the economy, it would have been a very difficult road ahead so i think president trump facing the same thing we've got the wizard of the senate mcconnell trying to go through this path, i think i think it is tight clearly timeline is tight but i thought four senators left room for the art of the deal we will see if president trump and mitch mcconnell can make that in a tightframe. >> we want to talk to you about the democratic party after five special election losses some liberal lawmakers reportedly considering ousting
8:07 am
pelosi president donald trump weighed in during by on "fox & friends" listen how the president addressed this. >> i hope she doesn't step down i think that it would be a very, very sad day for republicans if she steps down. i would be very, very disappointed if she did. i would like to keep her right where she is because our record is extraordinary against her but we will see what happens there has been a lot of talk about her stepping down, we will have to see what happens. maria: what do you think are democrats in disarely. >> o i don't think going to use president trump as democratic adviser on political. >> that is my point maria. so -- i think this, first of all, i like nancy pelosi she is a friend. about seasonabling i think you see two overreact to elections not to put a positive spin on it very straightforwardly democrats ran stronger than
8:08 am
many people anticipated in -- in republican districts so i think we at least did put some perspective here, having said that, having said that, leader pelosi has been a consequential figure master of the house in terms of legacy there is no doubt that i am for a -- a centrist vital center big tent there is going to be discussion about this i think a good thing. >> one of the things that i am impressed with not going to say impressed with pelosi hearsay but plan message is unbelievable people repeat what she says reframed health care bill now as giving money to wealthy. and talking about it as if they are taking away care from the american people. and then, it trickles down so seems like we might be talking about this but she seems a figurehead a leader that seems to trickle down. >> i think you make a good point. it -- reflects what i just the points i tried to just note. going back to health care,
8:09 am
when maria asked me about it earlier, i think this is a very difficult moment, health care is a very important issue. i am very regretful to see it on partisan basis if it does move forward obamacare has serious issues to address you are right public opinion polls right now do not reflect the favorably on republican bill leader pelosi is pointing that out making that case i think making it very thoughtfully he will kwebtly persuasively. >> this is what i -- hear about this from inspector pelosi a tax, it is a break for the wealth. she can't define what that break is they talk about medicaid expansion about don't talk about block grant programs in the senate discussions, the fact is they are actually selling a narrative over reality and as far as leadership she is a big money racer for the democrats that is one of the reasons not going anywhere, but why not deal with a debate on the what is in the bill versus not
8:10 am
reading it and just attacking it four minutes after it comes out. >> we need a serious debate about a serious issue, on health care. and certainly not an easy subject, as president once suggested quite contrary, american people are concerned about this for good reason a big piece of our economy as we all know so i think there will be a real debate but you have to -- also, be fair. >> are democrats -- to table on the debate are they going to attack the fact is anthem left two other states wisconsin indiana 20 counties in ohio less choices, and there are requests going forward in four to five states, for raises from 16 to 32% in premiums looking ahead to 2018. so we're talking about a remarkable change, and chuck schumer and nancy pelosi not telling the truth about what is even in discussion draft. >> due agree with that? >> i don't would i like to respond quickly, fefrl i did
8:11 am
acknowledge that the affordable health care act had serious issues, earlier in my comments, so i agree with you the points you raised there, secondly the way the republicans have approached health care reform, has not given the democrats an opportunity to participate in that debate you can make a case, wouldn't have made any difference but that is not the right way to legislate this critical issue in my opinion. >> what about just obstructionism going on, and i mean do you think that voters will hold them to account in 2018 elections cooling voters will say you are party of no you are the underwater stopped president trump's agenda from getting executed, or do you think people forget? >> no. i think the american people are ready for the congressmen and congresswoman they elected to do their job make lives better. maria: right. >> so i think democrats need to look where they can reach common ground with president trump but it is incumbent
8:12 am
maria, on the president, and the executive branch of government to reach out and try to make that happen as well. maria: you are right, the thing is with the obstructionism coming out of lawmakers on the left that is making it okay for hollywood to say whatever they want about donald trump seriously, outreach is brewing -- >> it is a serious point. >> i mean outrage brewing over comments from johnny depp that he made about the president. saying that he wants to assassinate him lessen to what he said last night i want to get your reaction. >> jump in, going to be -- lau. >> when was the last time an actor assassinated a president? >> you know i don't understand why these people think it is okay to just you know, talk this way, he went on to say i think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark dark places he could go your reaction? >> well, it is totally unacceptable we've got far he
8:13 am
too much venom hostility, over the top comments, we saw that in the campaign, unfortunately. and we're going to have to do much better as you can particularly after the tragedy with congressman scalise and i know like and respect. that is that is such a strong signal for us to really move to a much better place in terms of our civility and rhetoric and i don't -- it maybe a good one-liner of certain crowd it is not acceptable at all. >> at all, good to see you thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you, maria. >> coming up next heart disease number one killer for women that isn't enough to get some to go to the doctors office surprising reason more and more women are skipping their checkups then banks make a pass first phase stress test how could pave the way for a president trump's regulation plan in terms of rolling back regs back in a minute. ♪ ♪

8:25 am
politically gee politically that is the way everywhere. >> more in u.s. europe or both. >> both from valuation and to metrics europe looks more attractive so what we find a lot of investors tend to be overlaetsdz to u.s. relative to global benchmarks or gdp, the u.s. economy is 25% global gdp approximately, but about 55% global equity from a perspective of opportunity we think international markets are starting to look more attractive getting tailwinds from political side as well. >> let's not forget they have money there still with similar lsu packages in europe we are seeing rates go higher, kevin kelly with me just said look how is double line handling bonds right now given the fact that the fed is raising rates, what what is your take on bonds. >> very interesting, the fed started tightening cycle
8:26 am
raising interest rates front end of the curve bond markets rallied on back end of the curve, curve flattened as we say in bond world that portends some problems long run but a lot is really driven by the inflation data that has come out so all on hiking regime hiked three times last six half months what you see here, is that -- from the perspective of the inflation data that is not going to be supportive going forward next couple minutes so something has to change underlying fundamental data for fed to continue tightening regime, it was interesting starting to announce balance sheet reduction from still lsu post financial crisis, but the bond markets, yields did not move, moved down significantly morning of fed meeting on inflation, as inflation data continues to disappoint we look structurally in components likely inflation data will not be completely
8:27 am
supportive of fed hike near future priced 45 to 55% chance would be additional rate hike in lockstep with fed's communication policy. >> you agree with that? >> i think the probability is right, but in order for the fed to be able to raise i think they have to have a pivot point or turn in inflation upward trajectory trend not there. >> jeffrey was one of the few out there stuck his neck out, around the election, and said i think donald trump will win, become president obviously he was right. he invested around that, are you worried that we seem to have four senators pushing back on health care plan and we know that that is critical to the rest of the agenda. >> yeah, i don't know if concerned right now we try not to invest politically, obviously, it isn't a big impact in the market today, however, if four senators block health care reform bill, it doesn't bode wet for trump's agenda. maria: a problem. >> it is a problem, and so

8:35 am
country people say support terrorism close with muslim brotherhood president does not call them out as it yet but a military base there. >> i think one of the issues there is as we have seen in all over the middle east is you have factions within a specific government that are either supportive of the u.s. or against it or supportive up front in one area, and then also supportive of other -- groups and different parts of that same government, it is convoluted part of dealing with middle east that we have to navigate around it is very difficult. >> mark, good to see you brother, david here, look, the issue is not just a conlooutdz nature we have talked about this before but also the fact that you have a sunni shia dynamic going on in the middle east, and even in qatar that complex -- terrorism in qatar
8:36 am
you stated quite clearly how they come hf plane that is one example, but what are we going to do about the funding stream that comes out of there can we do anything about it? >> you know i don't know if there is, i mean i think we have to look at it -- as in issue in middle east from a multifaceted approach i mean we have to impose sanctions juice -- use allies in regional on factions within qatar government to quit funding of organizations that we are not privy so to the supportive of let muslim brotherhood, you know -- there is a lot of factions within the muslim brotherhood as well but you look at their actions they can say one thing you look at actions of the muslim brotherhood tells you whether a terrorist organization or not. >> do you think this is a great time actually for american diplomacy to make this a mutual conversation because we have seen in saudi
8:37 am
arabia they support wahhabism, one of the -- one of the worst forms of islam that has happened. so we can direct conversations on both sides not only the saudi government but also the qatari government to take down and enforce the laws and politicals against terrorism including funding that you are talking about. >> well, i think a great opportunity pretends i think how we approach that is something going to be significant to our leadership, in the middle east in the future. >> we're seeing right now there is you know all these sort of smaller terrorism attacks, and when you think about this kind of you know what is going on in qatar what we're seeing out there, there is higher threats what do you think is going to happen should we be concerned? >> well i think we got to be concerned with terrorism all the time. you know. their tactics lately have been changed from big dynamic state
8:38 am
backed terrorism to pushing these "lone wolf" attacks i don't know maybe "lone wolf" is wrong way to describe it because they are influenced, encouraged by other factions such as isis and al-qaida but it is easy to get one person in it is have a reasonable doubt to you know, we have to be right every day they only have to be right once having somebody in place here, makes it simpler for them yerz for them. >> what should u.s. do in your view right now, in terms of all countries saying we're cutting ties with qataris should u.s. get into this? >> well i think we have to, i think we have to provide leadership, and how deep we get into it is -- i think is up to the administration and you know i trust their decisions on that with who is in place at state department and department of defense, and national security. but we have to utilize these opportunities to provide our leadership to use it, and influence those allies in
8:39 am
other areas within middle east to come around to our way of thinking at least, to our benefit. maria: yeah, it was extraordinary yesterday kevin kelly when we heard the news, that qatar airways wants to take a big stake american airlines amr ceo speaking out this morning, disavowing parker reportedly unhappy, as qatar airways government and they want to buy 10% stake in american airlines according to "the wall street journal" what do you make this have. >> interesting because the open skies laws and rules that have been going on, basically what happened is qatari government has been subsidizing pricing a lot are qatari airways doug parker saying we are not going to talk or negotiate we don't want to deal with you at all with qataris could come in purchase up to 4.75% legally no problem, to get to that 10% threshold, they would have to
8:40 am
go through the about regulatory in united states a max 24 points, 7.5% u.s. airlines doug packesh wants nothing to do with they they are saying we want to own you passively. >> right qataris are saying. >> passive ownership dealing with complex government that many problems and foreign enterprise like qatar so a we've got to stay away from that. >> fascinating that they want to buy this stake just at the same time that all these countries are saying you support terrorism, and now they want to buy into american airlines it is extraordinary actually so that is we're going to follow obviously closely i want about to ask you about president reform of veterans affairs president trump to sign legislation designed to protect whistle-blowers at va to protect prosecute from retaliation good idea?
8:41 am
>> you know i think anything to reform the va where it is at right now is headed the right direction, i mean we have to take care of those that have been taking care of us for so many years. you know the guys that put feet on those yellow footprints swear uphold constitution defend this country need to be taken care of we haven't been doing that with va. >> tell us, quick, mark i know it is in the books, when you survive the benghazi attack what was it like for you on the ground? >> well, you know it was -- chaos, controlled chaos on our part is you know you don't know who the enemy is, you are not going to they don't wear uniforms you really don't make that decision to shoot until you see someone pointing a gun at you. and you know small unit tactics we have to gen on guys to our left and right, and also depend on the administration for the support that is needed and expected when you are in that kind of situation.
