6:02 am
weinstein, report saying that his contract essentially allowed for sexual harassment, the explosive details ahead. all the stories coming up this morning and joining me to talk about it dagen mcdowell, kevin kelly and the king's college professor of business and economics brian brendberg, great to see you. kevin: we have a big day today, cpi is released today, the one thing that has really confused the federal reserve and so we will have to see what kind of number we get out today. maria: ppi was up four tenths of a percent. kevin: we've had a lot of the price of commodities go up because of the hurricanes so we may see a higher number than we anticipate. maria: yeah. dagen: you're a nerd. [laughter] kevin: i like it. maria: he's going to be charged likely with assault. if not rape. so we will talk about harvey weinstein.
6:03 am
the story is getting bigger. kevin: and worse and worse. dagen: district attorney after investigation with the new yorker published the audiotape from some years ago. maria: for sure. we will look at that as well. wilbur ross is with us this morning. big interview can kentucky senator rand paul, you don't want to miss that. the ceo of double line, he's with us jeffrey joining us as well. big show ahead. don't miss a moment of it. let's kick it off right now. unraveling obamacare, president trump making move to unwind president obama's signature legislation without congress. the president halting federal payments for cost-sharing reductions to insurance companies under the affordable care act. president trump tweeted this about this morning, here is what he said, democrats and obamacare is imploding massive subsidy payments has now stopped. dems should call me to fix it. the move after president trump signed executive order which allows people to buy insurance
6:04 am
across the state lines. president trump explained the benefits of that order yesterday. >> this will create tremendous competition and transformative in so many ways, change aimed at creating more and lower prices for millions of americans, but the competition will be staggering. insurance companies will be fighting to get every single person signed up. maria: brian brendberg, we are talking about more competition? >> we are talking about so many changes here that the president is driving and what's interesting is he's putting pressure on both democrats and republicans, democrats, look the headline here are going to be bad, these cost-sharing subsidy reductions are going to tank the obamacare exchange. so democrats are on notice and republicans are on notice, catch up, let's get on the ball and get the legislation going.
6:05 am
kevin: we are highlighting that this is not actually debate over health care. this is a debate over a system whether it expands government, inhibits free markets, shuns individual responsibility, i mean, just by the name alone cost-sharing, you know, cost-sharing reductions, that shows how broken the system is and shows how it's limiting our choices right so this is about the economic system which will distribute goods and he mentions health care companies, and show that is this is really distorting the market so this will help free the market because -- the government doesn't need to subsidize plans, people can now group together, get associated health plans and become the consumer which is king and they can bid now with the insurance companies. maria: now, dagen, the open enrollment season is going to be starting in less than three weeks. the season to buy coverage through the exchange. dagen: this could cause more insurers to leave the obamacare
6:06 am
exchange number one, but worth noting that many insurance companies did anticipate that the trump administration would remove the subsidies. so they have priced their plans for next year at higher prices in anticipation of this. there was a two and a half percent surcharge added by california on its silver plans as hedge against possibility. they haven't been anticipating this. the political calculation of this is very interesting because it seems like if this speeds up the collapse of the obamacare exchange and speeds up some of the problems that we've seen with the health insurance offered through obamacare, the trump administration seems to be push -- they are trying to push it on congress as they have with daca, as they have with iran deal. push it on congress, let congress deal wit. we aren't -- the trump administration, we are not going own these problems.
6:07 am
this is all on congress. it remains to be seen whether that will work politically, but economically financially, people will feel this quite frankly. maria: i'm wonder if rand paul has been -- he had his own ideology, reasons for not voting if. >> the health care bill last time around. seeing rand paul standing behind the president. i'm wondering if the president said, look, i know you want this, i'm going to do this, i need your vote on taxes. dagen: could be. kevin: came out with rand paul. rand three weeks ago said it was going to happen. maria: this is what rand paul wants and i'm wonder if the president is basically saying, let's do this, let's do what you want, make sure you're there when i need your vote for tax reform? dagen: absolutely. one funny thing i will point out with all due respect with senator paul, expression on his
6:08 am
face when he was with the president and it was kind of like -- [laughter] dagen: it was one of -- kevin: sense of relief. maria: somebody will tweet that out. kevin: senator rand paul said anyways that he would rather see tax cuts happen and not worry about the deficit. he's been a budget hawk and he's willing to compromise on that. he's already said that. maria: i feel like the president will get his vote now -- i don't know. i'm throwing it out there. tax reform is obviously the most important now on their plates and house republicans are moving toward on agreement to preserve part of federal deduction for state and local taxes according to cowall street journal this morning reportedly coming as way to keep the break for middle income households while repealing for high-income
6:09 am
households. looks like they are coming with compromise. some people will be able to deduct. brien: trade-off and being able to pay for it. you're going pay for some tax cut, it will have to be with state and local tax deduction. you've got congressmen from the states with very high state and local taxes. maybe this is a trade-off to say, look, we are not going to pay for this the way you we wanted to said in the past. we need your vote anyway because we have to get a tax cut through for economic growth. dagen: higher-income americans are going to get a tax increase. i think time -- what you're hearing, what you're seeing and basically i'm a little dismayed and thrown off. maria: so am i. dagen: on the republican side. maria: a portion of the people are getting tax increase. maria, you have to look at the entirety of the package. i do agree getting corporate tax
6:10 am
rate down is going to move the needle in economic growth and everybody benefits. i totally agree. the highest-income people will actually see a tax increase if this deduction goes away and if they come up with a fourth bracket. dagen: the reason and we have discussed this over and over again, the reason i'm thrown off by that because it does give in the to the left-wing liberal democratic logic of the wealthy don't deserve a tax cut. well, but they are job creators in the country and they do help economic growth and they pay most of the taxes. maria: explain where the triple down economics is. kevin: here is the problem, tax code is 75,000 pages, complex, lobbyists who are going to try to protect interests including state and local deduction and if you think about it -- maria: and property taxes. kevin: if i time travel and go back to 1981 and 1986, president reagan wasn't even able to get this done and you saw a big
6:11 am
group of lobbyists from everywhere get together and try to defend this. dagen: ronald reagan used to be able to reduce interest on credit card debt. if they can get rid of that deduction, they can take a giant change saw to the tax code. maria: yeah, lots to talk about that, more on that coming up. new orleans police officer shot and killed on line of duty. what officers are learning from the scene and then it is earnings day for bank of america and well fargo this morning. first up before the market opens, bank of america, will it beat the street, we will bring g you live coverage coming up ♪ can i kick it?

6:21 am
maria: welcome back, bank earning season in full swing. we are waiting results from bank of america and wells fargo. as soon as we get the numbers we will get them to you. we heard from jpm and citigroup yesterday. community banks moving into the future of finance, striking up partnerships to create cloud banking for clients, new program launched yesterday by the community bank connect 1 and banking software company encino. joining us the connect 1 ceo as well as encino ceo, pierre. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you, maria. maria: we are seeing more
6:22 am
connection between banking services with technology. >> they have to drive efficiency in customer experience that match and what we are doing together is drive customer experience where you'll be mobile, digital and you'll get speed and convenience at lower costs. maria: how does it work? >> you would use to think bank in limestone building and it was the only and you went in there and deposited your money and took a loan, today you have infinite choices and for us to impact our client and really provide for compliant experience today that people want in this new digital age, we can't think about brick and mortar anymore. you to think about your cell phone, your bank is here, that's exactly right. we are a small community bank, connect 1 exists here in new york metro market, we don't have the technology or innovation to be able to develop the technology that is we think we
6:23 am
need to deliver that service. our partnership here with encino allows us to provide an extraordinary experience to our compliant. of course, it's the culture of connect one to want to be that so that's how we want to differentiate client experience but without the partner of encino we won't be able to do that. kevin: isn't one of them and you are in ecosystem with 30 other banks and not trying to get market share from paypal, it's trying to provide the customer experience. >> we want to be relevant to our client, right. we want to develop and have the product that is they want, sometimes even before they know that they want them and, you know, that's an example of doing that. this partnership, however, is much bigger, much broader, it's really about how we are going to operate the bank in the future, create efficiencies, create value for our shareholders. dagen: with the limestone bank, the biggest headache grumpy old
6:24 am
man who denied you for a loan, now a adays, -- a days, you say my financial is not secured. >> i think that's a great point. another reason why a partnership with a company like encino is so value. it is highly secure, we could never provide that level of security with our own resources within connect one bank even our concrete vault doesn't provide the security that you would get from a cloud -- >> if you think, it's a playing field, the cloud provides to community bank sector that's deployed in large banks today. the other thing it gives you is the ability to decide how to deploy capital. some banks, 7eleven in every
6:25 am
corner, like big box store or apple store, a few branches, technology show case and my people in technology will interact with you, okay. this technology gives you those choices, decide how to expand your bank to much wider fingerprint and go to vertical fashion. so this technology really expands the way banks can think about market strategy. kevin: should i think as consumer, i'm a connectone client, right, so i have an account there and i go to apply for a loan, am i then pushed on to the ncino platform? >> seemless to you. you will just see a vastly, better, more efficient system. if you want to walk into a branch and make a deposit you'll be able to do that but if you want to apply for mortgage, that whole process is going to go on in the background in a very efficient manner and we are going to take that information that you gave us to open up your deposit account and going to prefill all your documents,
6:26 am
you're not going to have to fill out documents 72 times, ask for signature 72 times and the process will be much more streamline so you will feel better about your relationship with us but they will be in the background. >> no more reentering of data twice. reissuing of documentation previously provided. today all the systems are behind the scene and when the bank needs a document it's easier to ask the document as oppose to finding nit the vault. now when you restart a new loan or application, you just reuse what's there already and it sounds so simple but in banking, it hasn't been around and the platforms allow that. maria: just like health care, so much data is out there and once you the data in the system it alleviates bureaucracy. >> how much do you love when you go to the doctor and every doctor and fill out the same forms over and over again. maria: banking and financial

6:34 am
believe someone would be looting destruction but they found him trying to steal a gun safe, picked him up and arrested him. maria: the winds will pick up tonight. we turn to the healthcare battle in washington, frustrated by congress as failure to pass a bill donald trump will use the pen to clear the way for obamacare alternatives which is what he did last night, the white house announcing plans to end billions of dollars in subsidy payments to insurers under the affordable care act. we resided in the order allowing employers to offer coverage across state lines. >> this will allow thousands of small business employers to have the same purchasing power as large employers to get more affordable and generous options for their workers. maria: the president welcomed several small business owners for yesterday at announcement, joining us is catherine munson. thanks for joining us. >> honored to be here. maria: i saw you next to the president during his speech.
6:35 am
tell us how your company will benefit from these changes. >> fast signs is the largest visual graphic franchisor, we have 660 locations, 590 in the united states and they each own their own business averaging ten employees. what we will do is have that supply chain, that purchasing power rather than a franchisee trying to get group insurance for one location with ten employees we take 590 locations and pool our resources and get a better price for 6000 franchisees so it is taking the franchised business model and the power of purchasing power and supply chain and bringing it to the advantage of franchisees and more importantly to the advantage of employees bringing quality, affordable health insurance to their employees. maria: you are a small business, healthcare was one of the biggest costs for you.
6:36 am
>> exactly right. we have seen our premiums skyrocket, franchisees had the same situation. this ability to pool our resources is going to be fantastic blues not only for fast line franchisees but all small business owners because small businesses pull together with any association with is the international franchise association, bringing strong purchasing power big companies already have. dagen: the order was signed by the president. are the insurance companies ready to act on it? have you had insurance companies setting up these health plans and have a quote you lower premiums? >> we haven't gotten that far yet. insurance companies need to know they have the ability to sell insurance across state lines and bring the competitive pricing power to bear. some insurance companies prefer
6:37 am
this didn't happen but they have a higher margin more expensive for small companies but we need to bring fairness to small companies that they already have. >> one of the biggest things can i band with another small business and how does that look like, what are your thoughts on initiating this and implementing it? have you started and will you designate and hire somebody to oversee this? >> we look at lots of ways. one would be a health plan for franchisees but if you think of the power of pulling small businesses together even better prices could -- an international franchise association plan, on the board of directors of the national
6:38 am
franchise association, 733,000 small businesses in the us are franchised. instead of looking at getting pricing power for 6000 franchisees, we look at millions of employees numbering better pricing, better quality healthcare with more options to all those members of the international franchise. >> the president is moving with a stroke of the pen and you are a fan of what he is doing but what is done with the stroke of a pen can be undone with the stroke of a pen. are you looking for congress to provide legislation to provide a more comprehensive solution to what is going on with care or is that the best we can get at this point? >> you have been reading my mind, don't know how you do that. we are very excited about hr 1101 which passed with bipartisan support in the house of representatives last march and it has been languishing in
6:39 am
the senate. executive order can be undone with next administration. we need a legislative fix and i'm very hopeful the president signing this executive order will get some pressure on the senate to take up hr 1101 and pass it. that is an amazing way for us to codify association health plans, very important bill. dagen: one in the wall street journal with donald trump ending the subsidies to health insurers, the journal reporting the president has told at least one lawmaker he would support preserving these payments if the bipartisan deal between lamar alexander and patty murray comes together so these subsidies might go away. >> sound like a good negotiation plan. maria: thanks for talking with us. coming up, disturbing reports

7:06 am
remember when the president as a campaigner said barack obama signed executive orders defining the will of congress, that is what he is doing, sabotaging obamacare which has the support of the majority of the american people for the first time ever. maria: you think obamacare is working. >> it is not perfect at all. this is an opportunity for republicans and democrats to work together to make a better healthcare system for america. the irony is you have 60 plus votes by republicans in congress to say we will repeal and replace as long as obama wasn't there and he knew it wouldn't pass, trump is there, they couldn't come up after seven years with a better plan in terms of more insured people are lower premiums and consumer protections. >> democrats have to work with president, he is taking this action because democrats won't come to the table and are completely hands-off so you see them obstructing. maria: they don't want him to succeed. >> what incentive do they have? >> they have an obligation as
7:07 am
public servants to supply us with a good healthcare system. they are at some political exposure if republicans take case democrats don't care about you the voter, they just care about themselves but they are making a contrary argument about the president that the president's stuart:'s to say i am fulfilling my campaign promise despite the fact he is blowing up the american healthcare system. dagen: he is not blowing it up. the insurers anticipated this would happen. they priced in removal of these subsidies to a certain extent in the plans they are selling for next year. california added 12% surtax in anticipation of this happening and bipartisan legislation moving in the senate, you have lamar alexander and patty murray working on legislation

7:09 am
particular. maria: up in double digits, premiums are incredibly expensive for everybody, no choice whatsoever. that is not trump's fall. >> it is trump's fall because he's not worked to improve the system. >> working to improve it, congress couldn't get it done so he is doing it so talking from both sides. >> there is history in terms of what he is doing with this associated plan where you have small businesses or groups of individuals that can get together and not only can they get together but can go across state lines. this was tried in the 80s 90s. what was the result? consumer is left hanging with paid claims in the millions of dollars. consumer protections gone because state insurance regulators couldn't keep track of these associations. we know this is a failure. he is blowing up healthcare system's fragile as it is. >> critics i think people will move out of the obamacare association, voting with their feet, something that is appealing to them. what is wrong with?
7:10 am
>> it is cheaper. >> you don't want to give people affordable healthcare? >> i do. what are you saying? that is how insurance works. if you say to dagan mcdowell and me as young people at the table, you two go take the cheaper plan, guess what? the plan for all of you as older people and people -- >> i'm in the young category! put me in a different category! dagen: a big lie every politician told you, older people get medicare and that is single-payer bankrupting the country and nobody will do anything about it. there is no fairness and obamacare because young healthy people and taxpayers are footing the bill for people who didn't take care of themselves or able-bodied adults, a lot of
7:11 am
people who are high risk patients, ill because they didn't take care of themselves and it is hidden in the cost structure of obamacare -- >> punish people who don't take care of themselves? dagen: not saying you can punish them but there is lack of fairness and obamacare. >> don't think it is lack of fairness when what you say is people run to the emergency room, when they run and say we have a problem or at the end of their lives are in critical condition we all end of paying for it under the current insurance and it drives our healthcare costs as a nation to the highest in the world. dagen: there was the argument for putting obamacare in place in the first place but the medicaid expansion, a lot of that money went toward giving health insurance to able-bodied adults who should be able to pay for it and not get the medicaid subsidy but wound up on the medicaid rolls. that is why medicaid grew and romans, the biggest health insurance program in the world. >> look at the screen, health insurance and the election, only two truths happening now, health insurance made money hand over fist, they are
7:12 am
clearly the winner, clearly the loser is the actual obamacare system because it is imploding. we have to figure out, we are blaming the president because he's doing executive action, the american people lost the insurers. dagen: i will concede one thing with these executive orders, getting rid of subsidies and expanding options at the state level we don't know how this is going to play out in the real world. it will remain to be seen how health insurers react and what is going on? >> we have a young maria bartiroma here. maria: thank you. coming up wildfires continuing to blaze, the impact on airlines coming up next. these pictures are incredible. hyatt hotels becoming the latest company to fall victim to a data breach, 41 properties affected.

7:33 am
allowing it why did the president do this. the larger the group that buys healthcare in one lump the lower the premium. it's a way to help small businesses get the economies of scale a big businesses. it's very powerful tool. does it lead you closer to tax reform. the american people want to see tax reform. do you think this can get done this year. i certainly hope so. i think healthcare reform is a good thing in any event. that affects all kinds of people and it affects especially small businesses and their employees. so it's very good all the way around.
7:34 am
i think it does help move things forward for tax reform. the president really wanted to get something done on healthcare i know he's been frustrated with the fact that there was a real inability to get across the finish line a couple of weeks ago. >> the president is very clever. he has been very good at figuring out ways to do by executive order. this is another example of how clever that move is. >> and we are expecting the president to push the iran deal onto congress and he may recertify that. i will not get ahead of the president. we will know soon enough what he's gonna do. we will wait for the details there. secretary ross i'm going to switch gears here. the reported total trade volume between the two countries reaching 81 and a quarter billion dollars last year.

7:36 am
we were proposing to it in our trade deficit with them. a lot of people wonder if it's really mexico the issue or canada. there's not really much to do in the canada part of this. it's really the unfairness of the mexico site is that still a fair statement. we do have an overall trade deficit with kim that but it is somewhat smaller in absolute terms and it's also smaller as a percentage of the total trade the bigger problem is the mexican side. and what you want to seek change their were talking about changing the rules of origin and how much of the origin and the overall automobile can commit in from outside nafta. the truth is you may have seen the editorial iran i ran in the washington post a few weeks ago of cars coming in from mexico only about 15% of
7:37 am
their content is u.s. and a lot more than that comes not even from mexico but from outside mexico before we have to change the rules of origin. you are a businessman before going to washington. as a businessman you really saw the issues of trade and how it impacts american companies. explain to the audience why this actually needs to change. >> here is why it needs to change. the whole idea of the free trade zone was to build up total sales within it in the portion never in each country. what has really happened is that sales have left our side and got to factories in mexico and now are even moving
7:38 am
outside of mexico to southeast asia. that is not the purpose of the trade agreement. because nafta was such an important deal did it become a template for other deals says the problem because all the sudden companies new i can put a production facility in mexico and higher a lot more people at lower levels. everyone decided why not do that and just sell into america right the thing is corporate america can put factories where ever they want. but mister and mrs. america are not so mobile. they are the one president trump is determined to help. did anything come under that meeting with the canadian president on wednesday. in terms in the future of nafta. did you make changes or was this just a meeting to discuss what you are already knee-deep in.
7:39 am
>> the particular median that i was at with the president and prime minister trudeau are focused on other issues. he really focused on federal regulations. i think they really did move the needle on economic growth including the one in two out regulatory reduction plan creating community what is the progress on that. is there a lot more to happen in that regards. >> the president has already knocked out some 860 rules and regulations from the obama administration and every day were finding more and more to do. remember that obama put in something like 7,000 new rules and regulations just in the last two years he was in office. so there is a lot more to go. they will be dug out and gradually replaced.
7:40 am
were they all about oil and gas was it environmental was a banking or was all of the above. to make all of the above. you would think the american public was a wild and woolly place that required that many new rules. but the president systematically removing them and changing them in getting rid of them i think well beat his formula of two reductions for one increase. do you think that is one of the reasons that we been seen more activity in terms of gdp and we haven't seen tax reform yet. as this is anticipation of tax reform. or is it the loosening of the purse strings because of what you're talking about. the lower regulations.
7:41 am
one of the first things the ceos say is how happy he is with the reduction in regulatory burden. almost every single one it not only is expensive it also paralyzes decision-making because you have the regulations that are bad enough. and then you have the enforcement and in many cases the enforcement was even more severe than that wording in the regulation. it was a double hit. and that's one of the things that you have manchester --dash mike mentioned in the past. it takes years to get the permit process right. that's a very big problem because if you want to build a new factory and you want to build a new anything you really want to get it going. you want that take effect. i think the dave regulation will help accelerate infrastructure spending and just normal corporate
7:42 am
spending. >> do you expect a package to be applied to the tax plan. people are certainly on the left. i think there is generally agreement that we do need to do something about infrastructure exactly how you pay for and what form it takes. that's where the debate will be an especially what size. the president wants a trillion dollar plan and i think if we get that through it will be wonderful for the economy. secretary wilbor ross think you very much. coming up a blockbuster development in the harvey weinstein scandal. the contract actually allowed for those lawsuits it's incredible.

8:03 am
missed estimates that is why you are seeing shares fall so because that net interest margin is what bank of america beat on you are seeing that affect the because more traditional lenders net interest margin has to do traditional banking we have seen trading revenues down across the board from every bank, so dependent on that that is why shares fall. >> stock like the other financial stock last month, ran up great, year-over-year performance, really since election last year again this stock, like the others ran up, any witch hicht iff a pullback. >> great point another thing bank of america earnings and if we look at adjusted numbers beat estimates adjusted revenues numbers 11.4 billion versus estimates 11.35 positive are to note think about companies, bank of america paid the most in fine 70 billion dollars more any other bank revolt to go financial crisis, you pare

half insurance is across state lines large group erisa plans self insured going object forever one part that works premiums in large group across state market going 27 or 3% a year, the individual market, 20, 30, 40% a year, so what the goal of this reform is, is to let individuals if you are a plummer a welder an accountant a doctor you buy insurance for you and your foem or small group lets you get the hell out of a individual market and get into the group market, and the people in the group market coca-cola, pepsi,amazon,amgen, microsoft, this is what people want, and so i don't understand the pushback of why anybody would oppose this because, big corporate insurance is what most small businesses would love to have. maria: yeah, but not the overall reform that you have been pushing for about for a long time now you wanted an out-and-out clean repeal and replace, and you wanted all of those taxes, that obamacare
8:08 am
put into affordable care act you want them out not repeal you wanted the start of the conversation. >> no. we lost 5 or 6 republicans who voted in 2015 for a pretty clean repeal, and then when we got to 2017 they were no longer with us, that was a problem. but the would be thing i like about this, is i think my proposal that we are working on now also working on legislation, has the chance of getting democrats onboard doesn't repeal obamacare i would still vote to repeal it this expands the choices, the individual market itself very sick only exists with enormous subsidies to insurance companies, and those are ending now, too so this gives people an alternative i think the individual market is an aberration anomaly created by tax code of linking employment to insurance, and really the individual market is a way for the sure, to segregate people over here, then say oh we are not making money we are not going to sell it to them they make gobs of money in group market i would say hey we are
8:09 am
going to join the market and guess what -- basically your profit will be spread amongst more people but i don't think that this requires basically any taxpayer money would be great. maria: let me ask you this the president just said in sound bite look if you have rand paul in your corner, it must be right which was cute but you are in his corner on this, are you going to be in his corner on tax reform? >> i am absolutely for cutting taxes absolutely for bringing down the corporate tax rates we can keep our companies here, i am for keeping down the individual and bringing down the individual rates, the only sticking point i have had is detail but an important detail. if you keep the middle rate at 25%, and get rid of two big deductions how do we prevent middle class from a tax increase on this we crunched the number a lot of individuals have come to me shown me their numbers, and does look like it could happen. now i talked to the president yesterday, about this, i talked to the budget director mul vanney assured not going
8:10 am
to get it happy appointed finger at aides said do not let this happen i do not want to increase tax on middle class. as long as we fix this problem we see i am all-in. >> how do you do it house republicans moving toward this agreement to preserve part of the federal deduction or state and local taxes acourtyard to go journal that is one way to keep break from middle income house haldz repealing from higher house holsdz can you vote on that keeping partial state local tax deduction attackered bipartisan support. >> i think there are five or six solutions i think that is one my point is never been that i love the deduction would i get rid of the deduction so long as my rate came to account for it not everybody in the middle class had an spree of in the-- not everybody had an increase in taxes there are5 3 replicans in high tax states new jsey new york california illois think youre going to ve trouble getting themn r of the deduction cpletely i
8:11 am
ink compromise for those below a million dollars keep deduction or part of it maybe 7 points of it instead of full 12 if new york or california all kinds of compromises to me not so much which solution it is you don't have a significant number of middle class folks getting a tax increase i think going to kim the detail. >> one hundred percent, talking about biggest tax cut in history yet if you are going to remove that deduction, and you are going to come up with are fourth bracket what about that for minister you a mill on airz higher taxes disagreed. >> most conservatives i would like to see everybody get a tax cut including wealthy. >> not happening senator this idea not cutting taxes on rich tab biowill you explain where the idea of trickle down economics has gone, for years i have been hearing make it attractive for highest
8:12 am
earnings job creators to reinvest what happened to that notion. >> i think this is true of obamacare debate also you have republicans insufficient confidence in capitalism capitalism allows people to become very wealthy they pay a lot in taxes top 1% a third of income tax, top 25% pay almost 90% income tax, so if you take this class warfare say not cutting on those sufficiently you would be the cut tags that is where all taxes are paid aim believer cut top rate all for cutting top rate also making sure we've got the middle rate you can't just cut top rate not cut middle rate you have to protect mil income people there is a lot of us i think you have to do something there the president assured me he is going to do it. as long as we get that problem fixed in the bill i am all-in. >> he can't lose your vote you need as many republicans as possible are you counting this all republicans or do you
8:13 am
think you will get a due process dems in there to vote for this tax bill. >> i think possibility for a couple dems four or five did democrats in states president trump won 20, 0, 40 points i think they have to be conscious of o pogue president on everything tax cuts generally good for economy an amean i'm growing economy for last 8 years i think we will get -- when reagan had significant tax cuts we had 7% nominal growth in a year i think you can get at least 3 or 4 if we have a distant tax cut. >> i remember that 1984, you had gdp 7.3%, senator thanks for leadership on all above good to talk with you sir thank you so much senator rand paul, coming up up california in flames the story getting worse 31 people have died, hundreds of others are still missing it is now deadliest week for wildfires in california history firefighters are struggling to get a handle on rageing infernos, protests rage on in nfl coal miner reminds
