6:03 am
dagen: the devil is in the details in terms of how much this will cost everybody. the central point is this will make american businesses more competitive around the globe. maria: a lot to say about that and you want to talk about messaging. you've been saying pretty much for year tax reform messaging. >> the star beverly hills to crop died, hugh hefn. that is how legeary he was. he was across every medium. he transformed generations. dagen: heap of black fingers on television at a time when much of the u.s. was still segregated nat king cole, ella fitzgerald, nina simone on a show, playboy penthouse was on the air in 1959. so there was a lot that he really did. maria: also a real entrepreneur. came from chicago when it
6:04 am
changed industry in terms of the "playboy" magazine. we will get into all of that. big over my head. coming up this morning, treasury secretary stephen mnuchin is with us because of the tax plan. house ways and means chairman kevin brady has been working on this for a long time. he will join us with house majority leader kevin mccarthy just out of his meeting. take a look at the details to tell us whether this has a chance of passing. congressman john garamendi has some issues he will talk with us about that. plus, newt gingrich is but does. big show has committed three hours. you don't want to miss a moment of it. our top story is the wait is finally over. after months behind closed doors, president trump and lawmakers revealing their framework for tax reform. on the corporate side come the plan envisions cutting the corporate rate to 20% from the current 35% in reducing taxes and pass their businesses to
6:05 am
25%, imposing a one-time repatriation tax to encourage companies to bring usher packages back to the united states. that is likely going to be 10% of the individual plan for individuals to collapse the number brackets from seven to three. those brackets as you heard here already, 12, 25% and 35%. it would also double the standard deduction to 12,000 for individuals of married couples. no tax if you make $12,000 or less obviously. increasing the child tax credit, eliminating the estate tax and alternative minimum tax is basically the plan. hours after details were leaked, president trump taught in the crowd in indianapolis the plan represents a once in a generation. >> this is -- finally to deliver this giant wind that the
6:06 am
american people with the middle-class miracles. it's got a middle-class miracles once again. it's also called a miracle for our great companies. maria: meanwhile, republicans made their pitch. >> for all of us, this is a now or never moment. closer than ever to finishing what we started for the american people. this is our year to chart a new course. >> we are going to do it. tired of things going the way they are going to we will try to turn this mess around. if i could say it as simple as possible, i would say this tax reform conversation is about hashtag gpo money. maria: i like that. the carter here to talk about that. the messaging so far, we've got
6:07 am
to play them. >> is the first time since the president in office that we feel everyone is on the same page. a consistent message they consistent message there will in the sun in the right way. interesting how you not did in springfield. really interesting that he chose indiana. i think there's a lot of back story about what the vice president has done their bit tax reform, tax relief, to $.5 billion that happen as a result. the messaging itself is really, really simple and memorable and is what i think people really want. 70% of americans across party lines want tax reform, tax relief and want to keep our money in their paychecks. making it simple, winning again, bringing it home. early key messages and it seems to make congress is on the same page in the way things could get done. maria: we knew as soon as the
6:08 am
plan as early as we were going to get the talking point on the left. a gigantic tax cut for the rich. when you go through it, it really is not that appeared when you talk about corporate rate of 20%, that will hopefully encourage companies to invest in business and create jobs. and the pass-through. you're the hardware store, restaurant, talking about 25% rate. that small business, that is not rich guys. >> it wasn't surprising. probably had talking points ready in there are some points in here, but to me that it's okay. i think this says that there's something they can negotiate with, talk about 12% versus how it could have been 10% on a lot of negotiations on members. they cannot look at this and say this is really just relief for the wealthy. dagen: i don't know how you get a hard line in "the new york times" that "the new york times" this is one photo to the wealthiest. it does not directly benefit the bottom third of the population.
6:09 am
the bottom 40% of taxpayers at the federal level actually not only do they not pay any income tax, they get money back for the government. when you do point that out first and foremost. in terms of how it benefits will become you simply can't say that. we don't know what the income threshold are. we could look at the top rated up to 35% as this goes to congress. so you could have the wealthy are paying more on that. he divided the state and local tax seduction command that tells people in the highest income state i don't particularly like that. i think a lot of people regardless of your income bracket are willing to get on board with this if it indeed makes america more prosperous than competitive. maria: let's talk about one thing you just said. the president basically put it on congress as to whether or not to raise taxes on the rich. he is opening the door to a potential surtax. an additional tax on top of the highest level of 35% for
6:10 am
millionaires. he's putting it on congress. is opening the door. maria: will give the president credit on this. he has message this. months ago he said my rich friends don't mind paying more and. he has message that. you keep the estate tax, to get rid of the estate tax. >> which is double taxation. dagen: that's one negotiating point. maria: the estate tax has a lot of people. it's not just the ultra rich. when your parents died in the leave you something, whatever it is, whether that's a million dollars, whatever it is, you are paying 50% on not after your parents died. that's not necessarily a total rich thing. people have to sell their house just to pay the tax. >> i'm guessing on this.
6:11 am
i bet you that's a negotiating point because the exemption right now is $11 million for a couple, so it stays below 11 million is attended down they don't have to pay tax on that. i think i will be a negotiating point that they can raise the exemption. i don't know if they'll get rid of it even though conservatives have long wanted to get rid of the death tax. >> one of the most important points that came out yesterday on your show when you were interviewed another ted cruz. he really scared me because all of a sudden she was talking about repealing dodd-frank and he wants to start making it even more complex and convoluted. this highlights the problem with todd in the senate. the house says hey, was sent to repeal in her place of obamacare and it. and then you had yesterday ted cruz telling you they want to start attacking dog frame for this bill, which scares me because there's 22,000 pages of rules and regulations that came from that.
6:12 am
that will inflame the left even more because they are like there's taxes. maria: there is a movement in congress, whether on the right or left to attach certain things to attacks and because of the calendar. they have one shot of reconciliation and they wanted such as possible. on one hand, democrats would like infrastructure and dodd-frank unraveling the infrastructure. dagen: that's the messaging. it is to stop talking about dodd-frank. he needs to talk about tax reform. in terms of messaging, trump says the 20% corporate rate is his redline. and we criticize president obama when he drew a redline and then didn't honor it. but this i think it's really important and is putting his foot down when is talking to congress because again, the average around the world for corporate taxes in the industrialized world is 22-point
6:13 am
i% said that would bring it down below the three. trade to look at a country like ireland a 12.5%. by the way, the president did adopt his idea of expensing. is when you go out and buy a lot of equipment, you expensive that year rather than taking depreciation over the years. that was one thing that got ted cruz i'm bored real quick. >> and businesses are excited about that. maria: we've got more on this coming out. the first commend the death of an american icon. entrepreneur hugh hefner was an american original. remember the founder of the "playboy" empire next. regaining control, the interim ceo at equifax regaining trust with free credit monitoring programs for everyone. the details coming up after this. ♪

generations. maria: terrific. how much cheaper to actually make this stuff overseas, is this a much bigger expense for you that you're made in america? >> there's expense for us. we had opportunity to work with partners overseas that would increased our economics, but, we really valued working with an american partner. they act much more as partner as opposed to a supplier and vender relationship, we were down all last week and we will show you this here, a good example, we made you something special. maria: you made me a pot. my husband is really going to think that i'm going to cook now. >> exactly. that's a great example of that partnership relationship that we have with them. we went down there, that pot actually -- maria: i love it. mornings with maria. >> that pot goes through 150 years of experience of making cook wear before it reaches them and we sat with the factory manager and printed that for

6:56 am
radar. maria: as a small business, you probably currently pay close to 40%, right, 39.6% or is it 35% as your business? your tax rate so far has been above 30%? >> because it's drawn down from our llc, yes, you're right. maria: you will go all the way down from 25 to close to 40%, it has to be a big deal. >> we are investing all of the money that we are making into the business and down the road that will have a big effect but right now everything is being reinvested to the market, brand. maria: good for you. how many employees do you have right now? >> you're looking at us right now. maria: congratulations, good to see you both. wow, it this is a great product. we will be watching, chip and jake. thank you for the pot. i will be cooking up a storm. coming up still ahead the big story of the morning, tax reform framework, we will break it all

it works 24/7, and you don't have to see or handle a needle. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it should not be the first medicine to treat diabetes or for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take trulicity if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, if you have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you're allergic to trulicity. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have a lump or swelling in your neck, severe stomach pain, or symptoms like itching, rash, or trouble breathing. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases your risk for low blood sugar. common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, decreased appetite, and indigestion. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may worsen kidney problems.

7:04 am
cutting corporate tax rate, that's 30% and reducing on so-called pass throughs and em'sing a one-time repatriation tax to encourage companies to bring off-shore profits, 10%. seven brackets to three brackets and rates are 12%, 25% and 35%. it would also double the standard deduction to $12,000 for individuals and $24,000 for married couples this as the president calls for bipartisan support. >> we will all succeed together and grow together as one team, one people and one american family. tax reform has not historically been a partisan issue and does not have to be a partisan issue today. i really believe we are going to have numerous democrats come
7:05 am
over and sign because it's the right thing to do. maria: democratic senator accompanied the president last night in indiana, he was in the crowd there with the president and then after the president bushed for tax reform in north dakota, he went with another democratic senator heidi heitkamp. can this plan garner bipartisan support? >> it all depends on what the plan is. right now it's a lot of happy talk. the happy talk of this will probably increase the deficit in the united states anywhere from 2 and a half trillion to $5 trillion. you're a deficit hawk you have to be careful about what we are talking about here. with regard to income inequality, there's a probability at least from what we know right now that they are being increased in income inequality as a result of this. you had a wonderful show on just
7:06 am
a few moments ago about pots and pans and a young -- two young entrepreneurs, very interesting, they're talking not about taxes, they are talking about reinvestment, is there in this plan a deduction for reinvestment and particularly if that reinvestment is made with american goods and services. there are ways we can really grow the economy but right now we are talking about a huge deficit increase and quite possibly even worse, income inequality. maria: you're certainly going to see less revenue if you want to cut taxes from where you are. one of the pushbacks from the group that's put this together is basically saying we will see growth as a result of this. we are waiting on gdp report and we are expecting to see 3%. already you've seen gdp numbers move up in anticipation that we are going to see tax relief. do you not believe that we will see growth that will partly pay for this? >> all depends where the taxes -- tax cuts are, if those tax
7:07 am
cuts are really on small businesses, you will see growth because that's where almost -- maria: they are because pass-through is 25%. >> yes. maria: what do you mean if we see? >> what's a small business? is trump's business small businesses, is an llc on wall street a small business. maria: if you own a hardware store you're getting 25% rate. >> that's correct. i'm all for that but small businesses can be structured as an llc, subchapter s and can be extraordinarily large businesses and very, very large profits. in other words, 35% income tax to 25% pass-through tax. that's a huge reduction in taxes for people that may have extraordinary incomes, so be very, very careful about the word small. dagen: congressman, every person, every article that i've read and every person i've spoken to, they fully expect tax writers to put up guardrails, if
7:08 am
you will, to prevent people from taking advantage of this 25% rate and trying to get them to their own personal income, get tax at lower rate whether it's an accountant -- >> right, just like we saw with the repeal of the affordable care act. really, really good for people out there with 30 million people losing the health care. dagen: why would you pivot to that at this point? that's -- >> because it's an examp of what you talked about. dan: why douon't y talk to the people who have seen premiums doubled and loss insurers, see again, you're pivoting away from the point. >> no, i'm pivoting directly to the issue. dagen: that could grow -- >> calm down for a second. maria: that was dagen. >> let me answer your question. i pivot today that because you said trust congress, just gave you an example. dagen: i didn't use the word trust. >> no, you said precisely this, you said not to worry congress
7:09 am
will take care of this, i'm saying, be careful about what you believe congress is going to do to you. now, let's be clear -- maria: what are you going to do, you're a congressman? >> i am the small businessman and the pass-through could help me what really is important here is that small businesses are encouraged to invest in america. now, let's take a look at the big corporations, at&t drove its tax rate down to 8% and layed off 43,000 people. so lowering the tax rate doesn't necessarily mean that you're going to create jobs in america. you have to design this in such a way that you do encourage economic growth and you can do this in a couple of ways, one is when companies invest, they would be able to have capital -- maria: that's part of the plan expensing. >> yes, it is. >> that's what i'm saying, there are things that can be done in
7:10 am
tax plan -- maria: that's included. what we really know what's not included in this plan that you think should be included because what you -- >> i will give you one thing that should not be klein uded, we should not be included creates more income inequality specifically the estate tax, elimination, there are only 5,400 individual families in america that would benefit from elimination of state plan and would cost the u.s. government reduction in revenue some 25 to $27 billion a year. maria: it's a double tax. that's a double tax, the estate taxes, you pay your tax it is whole life and you die and try to leave to your family and they have to pay -- >> 5,400 families, richest in america would benefit to the tune of $27 billion a year with the elimination. that's money that will not be available for education, for job training, for the small businesses to have employees
7:11 am
that know what they are doing that are highly skilled. that's money directly out of the investment that we need to make in infrastructure, maybe 20, 25% of all the infrastructure highway infrastructure in america comes from the -- from the general funds of the federal government. so you take that money out of the general funds, where are we going to get the money for the trillion dollar infrastructure? kevin: we get it from large gdp growth. we got a -- from deregulation. you mentioned at&t. all the large multinational corporations that trade in s&p 500, 20% anyway. by lowering the rates now is for the small businesses. we are seeing seeing that happen russell 2000. you keep talking about income inequality, if you look at income inequality it's as highest is because we haven't gotten fiscal policies like tax
7:12 am
reform. >> you're absolutely incorrect. maria: what's incorrect? >> all of the economic studies indicate that one of the principal reasons we have income inequality is tax codes of the united states. we have seen enormous shift over the years in the way which s&p 500 have used profits. in previous years and decades in the last 15 years we have seen a shift from that -- those profits going into new investments and to r&d and stock buybacks and corporate executive salary. that's a proven fact. maria: it's not a proven fact. that's absolutely right. >> i'm sorry, but it is. check it out. check it out. maria: when you lower taxes, you will see a better environment for business and they will turn around. we have seen that. that's trickle-down economics. >> trickle-down economics has
7:13 am
always been a falsehood and doesn't work. maria: it didn't work during reagan? do you know what the gdp was in 1984? >> i do know that over the years working men and women in america have seen stagnation of their economy in part, not totally but in part due to nature of tax code which has significantly lowered the effective, the effective tax rates for corporations. take, for example, the big ones, apple, ge, others. maria: how long have you been in congress, by the way? >> since 2009 and before that i was in the state government in california and including lieutenant california and i rewrote the california tax code in the 80's. maria: what bills have you brought forth to economic growth? >> one that you talked about a few moments ago, make it in america bills, we are working on rebuilding the industry by
7:14 am
requiring that ships, transport oil and natural gas be made in america and they be with american sailors. maria: we love made in america. we agree with that. congressman, good to see you. we will be right back. >> thank you my name is jeff sheldon,

7:26 am
3 percentage points. kevin: what's appropriate? is it appropriate to enact your right to free speech and expression, is that what they are saying is appropriate because i don't think it's appropriate to disrespect the flag which colin kaepernick made it an issue about the flag? that appropriate and inappropriate thing i'm thrown off by. jared: it's a matter of views have we taken in. has anybody soften their stance and feel different and something from a personal -- something does feel different, still not happy about it. dagen: i yelled at a friend of mine yesterday when you were talking about it. heros, people who sacrificed their lives, the freedom that protects their right to take a knee, those are heros. anyway, i was yelling. jared: asked everybody, fans to lock arms. dagen: how about putting your hand in your heart.

7:31 am
welcome back. good thursday morning everybody. it is thursday september 28. your top stories right now 7:30 a.m. on the east coast. the sweeping overhaul with individual and corporate tax rates. this will make america more competitive. we are not surrendering anymore. the biggest winners will be the american workers as job start pouring into our country 's companies start competing for american labor. we are speaking with one of the architects of this plan. we are expecting a down day as a at a minimum. the nasdaq s&p 500.
7:32 am
we are waiting on the final rating on second-quarter gdp that is out in one hour. in europe the indices look like this. it is an mixed showing. that's 41 points higher. it ended higher by half a% overnight. bold transformational tax reform. here are some of the nuts and bolts for businesses of this plan. to cut the corporate rate to 20%. the sound to 35%. it is cut the pass-through rate for 25 percent. and really small businesses.
7:33 am
we are guessing that can be around 10% and then there is expensing of capital investments. the current seven brackets are being reduced to three brackets of rates of 12%. for the standard deduction doubled. in the plan eliminates estate tax with the alternative minimum tax. mister chairman it's good to see. congratulations to you. you've been working so hard on this. the skeptics are out. and we are hearing from a number of democrats that this is the tax cut for the rich. in the committee for a response about jet responsive budget set is 2.2 general i'm just wondering are you expecting this plan to be scaled back as you work it through congress. there is a reason we work with the president part it is transformational. but it is achievable.
7:34 am
we are proposing almost a 40% tax cut for every local business no matter what your size or how you're your structured. we are proposing an simple and fair program and we redesigned the code so that our companies can compete and win anywhere in the world. those are big bold changes that's exactly what we need to get this economy jump started. i need to ask about an idea on an additional tax. they're saying we are opening the door to let congress decide if in fact we will have a higher rate than the 35 percent on individuals where you come out on that. >> rates along today don't tell the whole story different from the reagan reforms where you know exactly but the what the rates produced today by eliminating a lot of these special interests deductions.
7:35 am
the president insane look take a look at how the impact is up and down the scale. we want all americans to keep more of what they earn so essentially what the framework says is look take a big picture so it is likely that we will see another rate for the highest earners. we are learning at this exact earners. that we are being fair up and down the line. when were talking about the brackets. are you in see the income thresholds go up on that. if you have an engineer and a nurse mary together. they are getting text 3.8 percent on investment income.
7:36 am
or we can see those levels and move up in decades. one of the reasons the rackets are in the framework as we still had work to do to make sure that reality is there. so we can lower the rates at every income level. we're spending an awful lot of time on the low income. the reason were taking the 10% racket to zero is to help many of these families keep more of what they earn. your point is spot on. we still had work to do on setting the brackets. this is getting increase income inequality. there's already democratic talking points out there. how are you responding to those criticisms. i always remind people that
7:37 am
eight or nine out of ten americans. they believe will help them and their families prosper and reach their american dream. most of them want them to work with president trump to get it done. let's get the economy going. that is whether you are democrat or republican this is president reagan joined with democrats to do that we had one want chance in the lifetime to do that again. what do you anticipate being the hardest thing that you can have to accomplish in writing this tax bill. is it putting guard rails in place. to make sure that they don't take advantage of the slower rate.
7:38 am
to take advantage of that lower rate. as i can be one of the toughest things you have to tackle? >> that is one of our challenges. for the first time to get the tax rates down. those are one of the areas that we have to solve. to bring those dollars back to the united states. you want to make sure that we get the brackets right. the end of the day. we do have to eliminate a number of special provisions and it moves us towards a balanced budget. we have a handful of key issues. i have not seen one yet that is not solvable.
7:39 am
>> what is the number in a number in terms of that one-time tax the rates have not been set. there will be two rates one for the bricks and mortar investment overseas and the other for cash and cash equivalent. they haven't been able to bring their dollars home. going forward the tax rate to bring those dollars back. it will be at zero tax rate. we think that makes us competitive world wide. how does is move forward in terms of closing down and making sure the budget is complete and then moving on to tax reform. to make as historic as yesterday was. the next step is critical. that is exactly where we are going next week i believe in the house and the senate once
7:40 am
the budget is signed, sealed and delivered that gives us the runway to land tax reform on that it will begin our action. what is the news on carried interest and capital gains. we will be unveiling that later in october after the budget is completed. we want growth all those factors are part of the decision. can you give us any idea of what the income tax bracket points will be. what is a level on that. not yet. and here's why. we want to make sure as we simplify the system that were giving tax relief at every income level.
7:41 am
we know there are a lot of interest there. i would love to have a democratic support. because their communities are suffering like ours. they bring good ideas. good to see you sir. thank you very much. it kills one person at the national parks. we to show you this. and then targeting stranger things. we won't be right back. -- we will be back

and start gathering the information you need to help you keep rolling with confidence. go lg™. ♪ a historic day for tax reform today. the trump administration unveiled his tax plan yesterday. they went over the framework together at the gop retreat. the goals of the overhaul were to simplify the nation's tax code. lower tax rates for businesses and individuals mostly middle class. i spoke with democratic and he says this plan will increase inequality as well as a nation's deficit. watch. the talk of this will increase the deficit anywhere from two and half trillion dollars to $5 trillion. if to be very careful about
7:51 am
what we are talking about here. there is a probability from what we know right now that there be an increase in inequality as a result of this. let's bring in the house majority leader. kevin mccarthy right now. take you so much for joining us. what about that comment because we know that we are talking about roughly 5.8 train dollars in tax cuts. how do you pay for it. we are going to continue to grow. the idea that he has is the same problem that he has for the last eight years. this is an opportunity to make the entire nation competitive again. and second to second to take the inequality out. weird doubling of the standard
7:52 am
deduction. so instead of that middle income american ernie. it's now 12,000. instead of paying 10% they will pay zero in that process. we are making it competitive around the world which has been the heart of most people and were gonna let that money come back and invested american jobs. what would you like to see in terms of this one time fee. >> i want to make sure it's very low. that should be 10% or lower. going forward it will be zero. were going to a territorial tax. it means as we are competitive around the world instead of our tax code forcing companies to invest in other countries they are going to invest back in america. they will put the dividends back into america as well. going through this can you
7:53 am
talk to us about where the debate was and what you would like to see different or would you vote on this the way it is. we still had work to do inside to wear where know where those brackets are. we want to make sure every individual has their say in that process. i thought it was one of the best meetings and it wasn't just me saying i decide to member this morning said this is the best meeting they have since i've been in congress. we talked about the challenges for america. how do we help small business ow. we are going to move our budget next week. once we start moving in the budget process.
7:54 am
so you think this can get done. this is not a tax plan for republicans this the tax plan for americans. they know our challenges. they know what is happening to small business. it takes some days to fill out the tax code. that allows them to keep more of what they learned. let me ask about the state and local tax deduction elimination because there had been a handful of republicans have, against the new gop plan because they're not happy with the elimination. what you say. you need to look at the tax plan and the totality of the entire plan not just one simple deduction. look at overall at what it does.
7:55 am
is it fair that other states subsidize states that had high estate taxes look at california. they use an argument inside that capital let's raise taxes as you can write it off on your federal income tax. that's not fair for all of america. i thinkt is fai andhen you look at the entire total tax bill you will know at t end of the day. it's fair it's more competitive and in the process at some bullet simpler for everyone. those congressmen and senators are saying it could be a tax increase eliminating this deduction. i happen to be one of those congressmen from california. it is a good bill. it is one that puts us a competitive and i think in vote for in terms of it.
7:56 am
we had been examining this and wondering how you can game the system. you really should be paid 35 percent. you try to pass through money as if you were a business. any make sure that people cannot get past that system. to make sure that we have the accountability and the protections in there. but let's think for one moment. i started my first small business when i was 20 years old. it drives the economy. when were able to bearing -- bring them down to 25% to be the lowest rate they had had more than 80 years. it creates more job and more opportunities than anything else. it's actually fair in the process. there are some lawmakers that wanted to attach other things.
7:57 am
ted cruz was with me yesterday. we should attach this. i like to just to focus on tax and get it right. everything else that you want to add on to it that means it's a good bill. they sell this bill is good to become law. let's focus on this. we will be right back. stay with us. the ..

deduction in the child tax credit and eliminate the state alternative minimum taxes. now to win from washington is her treasury secretary, stephen mnuchin. thank you for joining us. >> great to see you as well, maria. maria: first question kerry mr. secretary, heidi pushback on the talking points when you were coming from the left in that it is as a tax cut for the rich. >> maria, not a tax cut for the rich ands the president has id companies focused on income taxes in the wealthy not going down and we've been working on that, we'll continue to work with congress on that. we've eliminated almost all deductions. so for the rich, that means although the tax rate came down some, all the deductions disappear which pays for it. maria: you make a good point. an op-ed in the paper yesterday from stephen king marion, the ceo of metlife who writes there's 4000 tax lobbyists in
8:04 am
washington are waiting on marching orders from people like him. ceos trying to get as many deductions in their. and you say no, we are just going to keep it to these three. >> that is correct, maria. we are focused on closing loopholes. this is about giving people a middle-income tax cut, tax simplification and making a business tax 20% and 25% for pastor is very, very competitive with the rest of the world. train to what are you going to do in terms of the brackets? can you give us any insight in terms of the levels? people wonder how much they will fall in. what can you tell us in terms of what the level is an income? >> korea, first of all the 10% bracket has effectively disappeared because of the doubling of the standard deduction, most people in the 10% bracket effectively will be going to zero and we will make sure nobody in the 10% bracket goes higher.
8:05 am
as regards to the other brackets, we are working with the committees. we have our staff working with them and expect to come out with the exact level shortly. maria: you don't have those exact level set. the president basically put it on congress that congress has the door open to come up with even a fourth bracket for millionaires tax or surtax, whatever you want to call it. what is the plan? are we expecting to get the rate at 239% for the highest earners? >> as he sat to the group was sixhen he came out with the blueprint, we did have the three brackets, but we also said we'd be working with the committees to see if it made sense to have a fourth bracket. obviously this issues they are. we want to be sensitive to the high tax state that are losing all their deductions so taxes don't go out too much. even without a fourth bracket, their taxes will go down. we'll be working with the committees to consider the fourth bracket.
8:06 am
maria: that is where we get to the next question of how to pay for it. the responsible federal budget says tax cuts cannot be handed out by halloween kennedy. the details of this plan appeared to come up to him and to put 5 trillion sure. he said many times you're expecting growth in all pay for partly. would i pay for all of it from a secretary? >> we don't agree with numbers. again, we have constantly said they should be scored by dynamic scoring and growth. lots of looking at static scoring so everybody is full transparency. the numbers are about a trillion and a half to the baseline, but more importantly a trillion dollars to policy which is the right way of looking at it. we think there will be $2 trillion of growth. we think the tax plan will cut down the deficits by a trillion dollars. that's a large number. we are focused on growth. we think the 3% gdp is a very moderate aspiration and we can
8:07 am
higher than not. maria: by cisco partner have a corporate or 20% of pastor rate different 25%. explain the thinking of having a 25% pass-through rate and the president said that 20% of the corporate witnesses redline. >> well, the president is right on now. we think corrations need to be competitive with the rest of t world. a 20%, we are slightly below the average on the rest of the world which we think makes us competitive. we don't have to be at the absolute bottom in case taxes down. we want to make sure that small, medium-sized, closely held businesses also get the benefit of tax reform. but since they don't have to pay dividend taxes, that's the reason why i'll be paying slightly higher tax inc. let me emphasize this is the lowest rate they will let bad they will have had since the 1930s. this is a huge boon for growth
8:08 am
for these businesses. maria: where is the debate right now? some on wall street, goldman sachs reporting not basically saying this is probably going to need to be scaled back to meet fiscal constraints in congress. talking about the elimination of deduction of state and local income tax. that's certainly one point i want to get to. where is the challenge in terms of debate? is this going to be changed, scaled back? >> the group of six that a lot of hard work on a lot of these issues. there are a lot of complicated issues for the house and senate for it different points. we all work together. we negotiated to a common point. but want to make sure committees have input. this is now the ways and means committee we want to make sure th have input, that everyone in congres should have input to the lobbyists shouldn't have input, but the people in congress should and will be working with them closely as we turn this into a bill intended to the president to sign this
8:09 am
year. maria: that of course we learn from health care where we didn't see the bill. we didn't see plans for health care and when they did see if they said i'm not voting for it. he focuses much more transparent? >> i do feel it's transparent. we think we have the votes for health care. we just ran out of time to get back to that after taxes. maria: you think you can get this on the president's desk before year-end and in 2018 deal with health care again. >> that the objective. we work as hard as we can run the clock to get the signed in december. maria: let me ask about the state and local income tax. peter king says i can agree to that. that's not good for my constituents. kevin mccarthy in terms of california. the pushback on the state and local income, what can you tell us? is there a debate here? >> as you know, i've lived in new york and california. two of the highest tax states.
8:10 am
for me, this would be a very bad thing, but the right thing for the american people. we should get the federal government out of the business of subsidizing states. the federal government has no business subsidizing states from a tax standpoint. it should be fair that we treat all the states the same way. that is our object is. again, we work with congress on not. maria: bugatti get the boat. we'll see how much pushback he gets in terms of the one deduction. i recognize that the real estate lobbyists are among the most powerful in the world. the real estate lobbyists want certain things in place. we haven't heard anything about the carried interest reduction for the capital gains tax. is that coming? >> first of all, been carried interest, the president has been consistent since the election. we will not have carried interest for hedge funds. as it relates for other areas, job creators from the people that job creation will be
8:11 am
working with congress on those exact details. as details. it simulates the details. as it relates to capital gains, there's no changes to the capital gains tax. it spurs investment covers important boldly that weary days. maria: we've talked about revamping the irs. a lot of people wondering what is happening with this bureaucratic agency and why the leadership is still there targeting conservative governments. >> we will serve out his term double and shortly. working with the irs, focusing on very important issues. the most important issue is tax simplification is 70,000 people because it's a very complicated. we will have a system where americans can fill out taxes on a big postcard. they'd go through lots and lots
8:12 am
of audits, complicated deductions and special interests and would cut a simplified system to collect taxes in this country. maria: we are waiting i gdp report in 15 minutes, secretary mnuchin. you've been clear about this process. this is about jobs, economic growth or that's your number one goal. how would you care to raise things right now? >> maria, there is some short-term impacts as a result of the hurricane. my guess is in the short run, over the next couple of months but has some impact. but that will have a corresponding positive increase. i think we are very comfortable with gdp has been earlier this year. i don't know what that know what the numbers this morning. i'm looking forward to seeing it. this typically didn't look at it earlier because it was on tv. maria: have you heard from managers and ceos across the country that in fact with a lower corporate tax rate, they will in fact turn around and use
8:13 am
the savings to put it into their business and create new jobs? >> absolutely. i've met with literally hundreds and hundreds of ceos from big, medium, small companies. people are so excited from the worldwide system to a territorial system to make us competitive. we are going to see the massive capital investment in the united states to build factories here and create jobs. maria: that's a really big deal where it has been the last 10 years. unwilling to put it to work. the trump administration announced another round of administrations against north korea this week. blacklisting banks and individuals. by deeply tightening the economic screws is so important? you've been working on this and put in a lot of time into this. will this impact the u.s.
8:14 am
economy? if you put sanctions on chinese banks, does not impact the u.s.? >> let me be very clear on this. the president's number one objective is national security. we will do everything within our power to protect the american people and our allies. how is that the u.n. with the president last week. he made it very clear the existing behavior in north korea is unacceptable. he signed an executive order that gave me the strongest powers the treasury department has ever had. we will build a sentient financial institutions anywhere in the world that facilitate any significant trade or other business with north korea. this is going to be forward-looking. it's not backwards looking. we will be monitoring this activity but we made it perfectly. the people around the world should shut down economic act cavity with north korea until they are willing to denuclearize the peninsula and come to the
8:15 am
table on those terms. maria: we will leave it there. secretary stephen mnuchin joining u stay with us. we'll be right back. the president has signed the waiver on the jones act. stay with us. te. new roads and bridges. te. new mass transit. new business friendly environment. new lower taxes. and new university partnerships to grow the businesses of tomorrow today. learn more at so we sent that sample i doff to ancestry. i was from ethnically. my ancestry dna results are that i am 26% nigerian. i am just trying to learn as much as i can about my culture. i put the gele on my head and i looked into the mirror and i was trying not to cry. because it's a hat, but it's like the most

8:24 am
the private flight on top of that was exacerbated by the underlying cause. he's a congressman, he knows better the appearance of these things, why he did it baffles me. i don't know that he should do his job over it, but everybody in the cabinet will do this unless it's vital to your travel. dagen: should he lose his job over not getting repeal and replace push through? certainly in his first year that was job number one. the only thing he really had to do. >> i would argue no because the fault there did not lie in the cabinet, white house, house of representatives. delay in the senate. the sound is the one who didn't get it done. maria: the senate keeps getting in the way, but the republican members in the house and said i'm not voting for this. how do you square was going on in washington? many say the republicans are in charge of the house senate and white house. >> attacks informal test that.
8:25 am
this house did tax health care, senate did not. i talked to several members last week a vague knowledge of bigger burden on their shoulders if they haven't delivered, they know they must. at the last account will earn the final vote takes place because it always does to make a suggestion or will they again just say it's too big, too hard to we disagree with this provision so we can't compromise and get our jobs done. that is predicated on it. they know they're not going to get it. so this is the last stand, taxes. >> the house i working bette than the senate these days. they understand the dynamic. in the senate, when yore not up every two years, or other respects. many senators it's too big. i'm going to get criticized by somebody so i'll just wait four years or six years and deal with it then. meanwhile, we are not governing. maria: would've been on the president's team and they don't care.
8:26 am
that could be it to. >> instead of compromise in the case of senator paul. dagen: do you think president trump is getting a raw deal from senators in his own party? >> it not a question of being fair to him. it's a question of being fair to the agenda that helps the country. repeal and replace, president trump is widely pushing. maria: don't take it personal to your point. >> part of it too is that the president was where popular should make it harder for senators to rebel against him. the president's popularity started to inject again. he was 45% approval on inauguration day. as of the fox bullies up 42. trade do 71% of people approved of him crossing the aisle with schumer and pelosi cutting the spending. >> let's also talk about the fact that congress, only 25% of americans would like to see this congress reelected. that's astounding.
8:27 am
if i do want to hitch my wagon to the president come you got to look at what they are doing. >> the public is the public has hired all these guys to do a job. they can't do a job to legislate , nothing is working in washington thene have a president who stirs the pot until all of this is adding two re you guys getting things done? that's for tax reform comes in. we've got to get that over the finish line and signed into law. trade to gdp about 15 minutes. thank you. minutes away from the front of reading on the second quarter gdp with window into how they are doing. we are expecting 3% growth on the other side. talk in a minute. i count on my dell small business advisor

sweeping tax overhaul. treasury secretary stephen mnuchin telling me the goal was to grow the economy and it will in fact be paid for by growth. >> we've eliminated almost all deductions. for the rich, and that means although the tax rate came down some, although deductions disappear which pays for it. maria: closer look at whether democrats will get on board with tax reform and health care. mark zuckerberg filing back on the president. he is pushing against president trump claiming the social media was against donald trumpurin the election. taking political disagreements to a whole new level. a brawl breaks out in the parliament. look at this. they didn't agree, so they why not it. equifax newly minted ceo is sorry to the wall street urinal op-ed today. how they can make things right including the service that lets customers lock and unlock credit for free for life. fresh headwinds for apple in the
8:33 am
life of good reduction in delays for the iphone 10 over the facial recognition technology. all mail dodge later this hour. postponing a vote in the latest plan to repeal and replace obamacare. item should appear live at the white house at the very latest. >> the latest as we expect that they will be coming obviously a discussion of the key portion of key health care bill that they hope through the senate, which was the block grant for health care, medicaid in the different states. let's talk about what the president is saying today about health care because it's quite clear there is a victory lap the president is taking to the unveiling of the tax reform proposals. on health care, he is promising there will be action on january
8:34 am
and february and as early as next week he may sign an executive order, which would allow people across state lines. this is something rand paul has been asking for in health care reform. the argument for it is where it would lower premium cost, but then you get in the whole issue to one state regulations are different than another state. here is what president trump said in an exclusive interview on "fox and friends." earlier this morning about health care. >>e voted block grant going to be great health care. the meantime i have a little period of time. i'll negotiate with democrats if they can come up with a fantastic health care bill, that's okay with me. >> yuji reddy said? he would negotiate with the democrats. his best buds, chuck schumer, the senate democratic leader, minority leader in the senate and nancy pelosi from the house of representatives.
8:35 am
maria come expect to see chuck and nancy back at the white house at some point talking about that. maria: adamant the white house this morning as usual. a quick comment from you on the gdp. three put 1% growth looks pretty good. >> this is the first time was had to print 3% or above for the economy since the last recession we've had. durable goods report yesterday which was 1.7% versus an estimate of the leading economic indicators. the serb did, but orders from giant corporations trying to do business development and reinvest the future. its capital spending. the deregulation administration is really taking hold because diseases are confident in spending money. maria: one really quick thing in terms of world changing the president trump is expected to allow insurance companies to sell policies across state lines next week, which is usually beneficial. we were talking about health care, even with president trump
8:36 am
and republicans not been able to repeal obamacare. i wanted to point that out again. maria: that is one of the reasons he feels he could get the vote are having success on health care. president trump tweeting yesterday, facebook was always anti-trunk of the networks were always anti-trump, hence fake news. "the newortimes" alogized and "washington post" were anti-trunk. collusion president obama. we no president trump has accomplished what we publish in the first nine months in the economy is going. mark zuckerberg is responding and here's what he said. trump says facebook is against him. liberals say what you hope term. both sides upset about content running a platform for all ideas looks like. this amid accusations that russian operatives use facebook advertisements to encourage american voters in the 2610 election. the farmers eager the house and fox news contributor, newt
8:37 am
gingrich. a pleasure to see you. thanks for joining us. >> it's good to be with you. maria: we have a lot to talk about. >> i i think that three-point line number is a big deal and a sign of what could be coming if they can get a tax cut through. >> i was astounded yesterday when ted cruz mentioned to me that the gdp in the 80s, was about 7%. people forget after the last 10 years of one cool 1.5%, people forget that it's doable to get china like numbers. >> look, the fact is the grow slower than a swamp in a money drain the swamp the faster things grow. we could be at the edge of a tremendous. three, four, 5% growth rate if that happens, secretary mnuchin is exactly right. if you average about 3% come you gerate trillions of dollars in additional revenue to pay off the taxs and i think that is
8:38 am
exactly what they will drive towards. maria: we have a lot to talk about this morning. we want to get your take on the tax reform package. first, the mark zuckerberg story. what you make of the comments pushing back on the president and also, do you believe there were anti-trump during the election? >> the president has to distinguish between facebook as in his tuition and facebook as a corporation. they may not be pro-trump, but the fact is the campaign relied more on twitter and facebook than any campaign in history. a little bit of gratitude there. the number of millions of people that president trump reaches every morning for free, by the way, by using facebook and twitter. they may have corporations that are more liberal based in california. that seems to be the norm and not part of the world. i think the effect of facebook, if i were hillary clinton, it

would be huge advantage for donald trump because they donald trump because of that immobilizing reach millions of people. he was churning out huge rallies at zero cost. so there's a difference between the structures, which are really opened to anybody to create an ideas in the corporate leadership, which is fair to say zuckerberg is probably a liberal democrat, certainly liberal independent compared to donald trump. i don't zuckerberg's personal intervention of the problem. the west, trump could have one because facebook was with the term campaign. dagen: stanek towel. which you suggest the way we digest news and receive news that it is being manipulated by the social media company? we found out that conservative news that facebook was not being promoted and then they started doing a tap dance about it because they were caught off

guard and blamed the algorithms in part. this is going to be a growing issue where they could, as they get more power to decide what you get to see and read. >> well, facebook and google will be at ultimately under congressional scrutiny. they are too big, too powerful, too pervasive in our lives. we've always gone through this from the railroads in the 80s and 90s. we begin to look at them from a government standpoint of standard o, we had to look at it. when at&t was that powerful, the government broke it out and created the environment that led the cell phone technology. we've had long sweeps of this. clearly, the bias of the people who work in silicon valley is somewhere between liberal and socialist. they love bernie sanders, tolerate hillary clinton. donald clinton. donald trump is not their

favorite friend. you have to watch and say to them come you've got to be neutral in their algorithms or do cannot be covertly trying to brainwash the country and that is a challenge. i think even zuckerberg's people admitted last year that they had done some things that were defensible. maria: take us behind the curtain. what you think is going on at the former speaker of the house in terms of the debate going on right now on whether or not this passes. >> i think it will pass. the combined white house has learned a lot from the problems with health care. they have really stuck to the same message. they worked together for now. the tax bill is a pretty good starting point with a small business component i like very much. it's a huge break in is ironic to me that some of the interest groups who are not. think about this. they are mad because we are doubling the deductions that people will have their own money and we'll get to spend it
8:42 am
without having to use the favorite deduction of interest rates. i think that is a dead loser. there were two arguments here. one of the beginning of the show. one is you like, how would you like to go to five or six. you'd rather have a lot taller economy with washington bureaucrats in charge. you want to drain the swamp, the tax cuts keep the money away from the swamp. you want to keep this one big and healthy, be against tax cuts. democrats are likely to slip in you will see some democrats start to say there is a debut away to vote for the tax cut. i think a lot of these states, they can't go home and be in favor of higher taxes, bigger government than you personally not getting an advantage. the small business tax cut may become the most important driver because it's the biggest 40% tax cut for small businesses. that's a huge incentive to call your congressman and senator.

on prompter. maria: do you want to mock prompter? there's no debate about not using prompter. >> we want him to talk about tax reform because when hisoft prompter he ends up talking about the nfl, melania shoes, you name it. he is talking about it. >> if you want to barnstorm, if you want to sell tax cut, at some point you go off your prompter in unleashed donald trump. that might look a lot better. maria: i suspect he will be doing not a fair amount. >> you can't stop him. good to see you. see you in 10 minutes. burning company begins at the top of the hour. first, dodge unleashing its inner demon. we are taking the record shattering ride for a test drive next. back in a minute.
