wal-mart expecting earnings of 97 cents a share. the numbers analysis as soon as they had wal-mart. breaking the code is more like the bank. the maximum amount sold out to a choir leonardo. it is more than the gdp of a country. we will tell you about that. joining us to talk about it, pollster and president of the slansky and partners like carter. global economic editor and fox news contributor head of the x-men next counsel donald trump presidential campaign steve cortez is here. good to see you. >> good morning. >> good morning. love to get that painting on errancy that gdp. maria: read michael whitner from witmer antiques and art on last week and he was sure that he was going to go for more than $100 million. the price is staggering that it actually sold for.
unbelievable. >> good times in the markets. maria: that's what i think to you. the massive diamond and i thought is that an indicator. pretty incredible. a lot to talk about. house ways and means committee chairman and congressman kevin brady because. ways and means and alumni congressmen with us. reagan economic adviser dr. and author suzanne centers. you don't want to miss. the potential set back after wisconsin senator ron johnson unexpectedly announced a no vote on the current version of the plan saying it benefits corporations at the rents a small business. >> i wouldn't vote for the senate fission. there's a real problem in terms of the treatment of pass-through
entities. remember when they established a framework, they recognized it to make americans see corp., competitive globally, we also have to make sure we don't did the past or is behind. dagen: pastors at 25%. president trump added to the hill today to meet with house republicans over the tax overhaul which is expected to pass in the chamber today. senate finance committee hoping to do the same mistake with a full senate vote to jon hilsenrath this morning that republicans could join. >> the 48 majority in the senate effectively. they can't lose more than two people. there are others that rob corker worried about death as they, jeff flake and 45 of their wild cards out there.
if they lose them, they've got a problem. >> do have a problem in 20 teen. refilled on health care. the american people give us the key to the car. we can get out of the garage. maria: writer they are such a hard time? >> the senate republicans and i hate to say this but i think it's the truth. senate republicans, some of them despise the president in such a personal way that they are obstructing the agenda just in another cell. they'd rather talk about cutting taxes and quite frankly republicans are small than we ever imagined and the tax code by the way k street loves the tax code because it's so byzantine, so onerous. the mechanism by which lobbyists largely control and are complicit and not. maria: the tax plan the majority of americans with the truth of
the plan. they believe the wealthy will see most of the benefits. that's actually not even true. according to the quinnipiac poll, voters disapprove of the republican plan. 61% say the wealthy would benefit the most. 24% say they would mainly benefit. >> this is all messaging. one of the things i've inherit if not they disapprove of that, if they don't understand what's being presented right now. people are saying i'm not sure what to look at. democrats have done a good job of consistently messaging against what tax reform is going to do. they started by saying it will benefit the wealthy which we've all seen is not necessarily the case, the people are afraid it's not going to benefit the people it's supposed to. so while it's republicans, they've done a much better job with tax refund on health care. still a very united front against it as they been trying
as a lot of mass shootings, all other things that catch the attention away from tax reform and on to gun control and onto other things. they haven't been able to get the traction to get people to understand it and they keep changing things. >> the challenges this is really complicated. just as straightforward cutting tax rate by x%. doing things on deductions with differences between word ron johnson was upset about pivot corporations and tax through, for instance well partnerships. there are winners and losers in this plan is then often happens in a case like this, losers are louder than winners. losers are very discreet. maria: had been questioning that as well. my first question from the get-go, way to pastors get 20% of corporate skit 20%. the answer is gotten from this group in washington is look,
don't forget the corporations also pay 20% on dividends. so don't think the corporations get funny. >> pastors or attacks with individual returns the corporations are taxed through corporate returns and they are not lowering the individual rates, especially at the high end as much as they want to lower corporate rates. they're effectively cod in the middle. if you're a top lawyer at a law firm committee that the individuated 3926%? or do you get 20% or 25%? it's hard to know where to put these individuals because they are in a middle ground. they are not corporations and not merely someone on the payroll. >> the macro planets are rates are confiscatory mis- of economic growth. the average economic worker hasn't had a pay raise in this century, 27 team.
is it difficult? yeah, but that's on the congress. that is why we have speaker ryan, leader mcconnell. right now in my opinion, both of them should be fired already. if they don't get this done they absolutely should be fired. >> you're making a really good point because what you see right now is a swamp inaction. people are not trusting congress to get it done. can they all get on the same page? a lot of folks said they have seven years to think about what they are going to do. here we are adhering to the election and it still seems they can't get on the same page. >> swamp inaction is one way to describe it. i would say sausage making inaction is another way. this is a very messy process and particularly in this case is there so many moving parts, a lot of americans are out there watching saying what is a miss for me? better off or worse off. that's where it comes in.
it's hard to say you are better off. >> is very clear they were focused on the middle class here, but a lot of questions on the edges of what that means. now they are throwing in health care and that's confusing people what did that mean. that could be a hot issue that could make people want to take a step back. maria: susan collins is one of those people. maria: more people with insurance. >> with. >> we've got to get to we've got to get to this because she is responding to the news that attorney general jeff sessions to investigate allegations leveled against her. watch. >> the uranium one story has been debunked countless times by members of the press, independent expert. it is nothing but a false charge that the trump administration is trying to drum up in order to avoid tension being directed at them. this is such an abuse of power
and it goes right at the rule of law. maria: abuse of power. to bond. what do you think? >> when i watch rambo style because they think she believes it. i really think she believes this garbage. uranium has not been debunked. we absolutely need a special counsel. not just because they were corrupt. that is well documented and the clinton foundation was a slush fund. as a cartel in many ways. in this case, most of the corruption was there own advertisement. it jeopardizes the united states. the massive amount of uranium lead this country and we don't know where or when. we don't know where it went after that in exchange for $150 million in the clinton foundation by $100,000 directly to bill clinton's bank account for one speech in moscow a conversation with putin.
if you want to talk about russia's story, our campaign, the trump campaign, no delusion. the more they research, thousands of hours investigating, no pollution. the real russia's stories that the clintons. maria: is this a story? >> i don't think it's been debunked. i think a lot of people are really interested in what's happened, but a lot of people are quite tired of which had scenarios. people say let's get the trump agenda time because that's why donald trump is a not bad. they want to see tax reform done, health care done. they want to see more and fighting. people look at this is just that. >> i will say that other trump artist in. i was investigated in the longer she's out there talking like this, the better. honestly, the longer she's the face of the democratic party, the better donald trump is going to do. >> the question about the investigation should the
president be able to effectively order up an investigation into a political opponent? that the people are concerned about. that's one of the issues people are concerned about. maria: that's a fair point. we'll take a break. an 18 year veteran of the baltimore police forces clinging to his life this morning pretty incredible story. he was shot in the head for the gunman is still on the run. all the details coming up. i'll swear, at&t tells customers in at least five states to restart phone factor at issue prevents users from making or getting calls. we will be back in a moment. with fidelity's real-time analytics, you'll get clear, actionable alerts about potential investment opportunities in real time. fidelity. open an account today.

education for high school. it would also allow families to start saving the money before children are born. what's your take on this and attacks by them? >> was gratified to moy gratified to moy launched a paydown program last year so employers -- we announce the favorite program with 529 contributions to accounts. anything that can help in what we are on is the work of a solution. 401(k) showed everyone when you have simply not you have sent a network where you can contribute a certain amount of money every month you really can start to make an impact. >> are you seeing any change with the decision that people are making about where to go to school, given that that was later carried coming out of the private university, changes in behavior among your client? >> yeah, what's really happening is a lot more conversation going on around the kitchen table.

going to work. >> i think the whole discussion around the cost of college in the investment in college which we probably didn't look at it as much 10 to 15 years ago in now way really is having an important conversation happening when your child is 16, 17, 18 years old or making the decisions of other technical school, liberal arts degree, people have to have those conversations and they are not easy conversations. the expanding of the mind is not cutting it anymore. -- is the way things are. maria: changing economy for sure. good to see you. tim demello. slamming into a jet. look at these pictures is stuck hanging out at the nose of the plane. we'll tell you what happened there. amazon the top shopping destination or holiday shopping list this year. but does jeff bezos get top market is the leader? the top business leader of the

you the story coming up. from the latest beauty products to advancing the commuting technology. these are men and women who are changing the corporate landscape. this year's top business leaders. what are you looking at in terms of how you put the work together. we look at revenue growth and profit growth. in canada put it all together to make sure it's not a fluky run.
we take you from five to one. the highest ranking woman on the left. you will know in this company as you do your holiday shopping this year in the third spot is another internet entrepreneur that is jamie indictment at diamond at the number two spot. in general numeral please. the number one spot. the number one business person of the year. the record is incredible. i'm sure you guys had been talking about this over the last couple of years. if you look at it. the stocks in the fortune 500 easily the best performing stock over the past few years. it's basically to be tied for first over the past year or two. if you look at the revenue growth and profit growth
return on capital. be the on to that the big story is they are making the chips that are powering the future of computing right now. wall street is super excited about what they are doing in their business is booming. tell us about the x factor. besides all of the metrics that he is talking what. what makes him a special business leader. just what they are doing in the division that they have. i didn't change my slides. he saw where it was going. the kind of computing that they are going to want to do. he is going to need to design those products. that moment has been arrived.
were so used to talking about intel. is a surreal threat to their future. in them trying to then trying to get together. the business is hot. >> if you look at the stock prices is just off the charts. it is a smaller company. that's why he is the business person of the year. and he went there. they have a giant ship. definitely it is a powerful new player. are they a threat to intel. i think they are looking what they're doing. everybody is trying to adjust to this new world. when i look at your top five.
four of those companies are very new and glamorous. and then there's j.p. morgan. a very old company. with the ceo that we would not view as glamorous. their financial performance is incredible. i think they had $2.6 trillion in assets. their stock return over the last year has been incredibly strong and he is at an amazing job kind of grant guided them through the business cycle. let me ask you about last year's number one. last year mark zuckerberg. he has dropped to 13 this year. why. and the performance is still really strong. they are going through some struggles not really on the business side they are still turning out huge profits but they're trying to figure out
how they managed their platform. we head over 2 billion people on facebook had a challenge to make sure that they are delivering on their responsibility. i think that came into it a little bit. a lot of it is the metrics. we just did not see them at the very top this year. i have your hands in terms of regulation. they have more power today they know everything about us. you wonder if they will see a heavy regulated player. they told us like fix it or fix it for us. a lot of the companies on your list are tech and finance companies.
we back to the future so to speak. they are the ones that drove the business cycle in the late '90s. are we right back where we started. let's not forget healthcare. not only are a lot of those companies our tech companies some that don't jump out as tech companies some people would say all companies our tech companies right now where they need to be. it's hard to be a company and be a top competitor right now without embracing technology and making your business more efficient with technology one of the questions i have is my
clients all the time when you talk about their aspirations they used to say i want to be like apple i hear that less and less. what are the factors that make things fall off. we can come up with our list of our top performing companies apple really didn't come up on the performance metrics near the top this year. apple is still a tremendous company producing incredible technology but it is a huge company it's hard to get it growing at the same pace when they are where they are. and that's a big part of the answer. president trump just tweeted
this. to the three basketball players i say you're welcome go out and give a big thank you to the president of china who made your release possible and have a great life. there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life. we will hear from the players coming up in the next hour. toymaker mattel rejecting the takeover offer. we will tell you about it. a 500-year-old payment teen by -- 500-year-old painting of christ by leonardo da vinci.

and happened earlier in the week. the bird embedded in the nose. it's right where the radar is located. nobody was hurt. the plane did land on time. a deal that would unite the publishers. could be in the works with help from the coke brothers. they had agreed to provide financing to meredith to acquire a source. they would kick in $600 million there are no takeovers. they tried to adapt to the world of digital media. they are down almost 30% this year. toy companies. they have rejected the acquisition offer it ignores
the possibility of regulators. it would create a toy powerhouse. with barbie in hot wheels. you can see how it outperformed mattel. it's down 35%. they have a smashed of the record for the most expensive painting ever sold at auction. $400million. and it is sold. they have rediscovered that. for the $450 million. that includes the commission that they get. it is the most expensive work of art ever. the winner of this a 500-year-old painting which is titled savior of the world has not been identified.
in the selling price was far above the $100 million that they had estimated. so basically half a billion dollars for painting. it has to be something that is going on in the environment right now. it's going way up and way down again. four and $50 million on a painting. imagine what kind of what you have to have in order to do that. i just tweeted out another one. you could've bought this masterpiece for only $46 million. it is incredible. it really is. we will take a break. it's just eight days until black friday. things giving is not what -- next week.

>> welcome back markets are up this morning. and part of it is earnings have been better than expected. due to report third-quarter earnings in just a minute. as soon as we get the tape we will bring them to you. they are good indicators of the health of the holiday season. dominic is good to see you. what is your outlook for holidays, shopping. the consumer has really shown
some strength. that's as healthy as we had have them in a long time. we have created over 2 million jobs your today these are people that really had money in their pocket and they're spending it. they're feeling good that money in their pocket. i expect a pretty decent holiday season. would you still put new money to work here. i really want to look at what corporations had done year to date. i know there is a lot of sentiment out there. but you really had to look at earnings. when you're coming close to hundred $40 in earnings. and earnings. that is huge. any kind of corporate tax cut. that could add another 5% of earnings. what happens if they don't get something done or if they under deliver. we've have a real pause here in the last week to two weeks.
finally the headline news is starting to get to investor. another passing the tax regulation and in what economic what economic effect is a can have and it really well had economic effect on people out there. we've a new fed chair coming in relatively soon. and we had interest rate hikes in december i think that is expected but what is a forecast can be. can we get some more volatility in the next couple months. they might assemble a stumble a couple times on this tax bill. i would actually argue that they're not in a pass the thing you have to expect a major selloff. at least a 5% selloff. that would be a pullback to buy. i think they will come to some kind of agreement and i think
some kind of text legislation is going to be passed. i think corporate america will be happy. i really been focused on productivity. i think one of the reasons it was was a lack of productivity growth. we know had two quarters in a row of productivity growth. it seems like they are finally investing in their workers. is that sustainable. are we in a new higher productivity era. we have those projections at the fourth quarter. we could start seeing real sustainable economic growth. but let's be sensitive to the fact that the consumer can be very finicky. if they feel threatened they will stop spending. bringing technology to make it better.
look at walmart as an indicator of how working-class americans are doing. there's also some news about our they can charge more in stores and online. are there other companies that we should be looking at to say this is how americans are really doing. one of those crazy little statistics 90% of the population in this country lives within 10 miles of one of their stores. if you want to know how while the consumer is doing look at walmart sales. i'm not really worried about that. what is a forecast going forward. the earnings today were pretty good earnings. top and bottom line growth. but if there guidance for the season is soft that could be a real problem. these markets had slowed down.
what is the worry. is it uncertainty about the tax plan. and the fact that interest rates are going higher now. headline risk is deftly part of that consumer's attitude right now. but we've have all along. people are like maybe we've gone a got a little bit too far too fast. they should be out any minute. thank you. hollywood legend is here. she talked about sexual harassment in hollywood. a big interview coming up back in a moment. you'll get clear, actionable alerts about potential investment opportunities in real time. fidelity. open an account today. and i'm the founder of ugmonk. before shipstation it was crazy.

the stock right now still up a one and one third%. no major reaction. it does have to do with earnings of course cisco was a big beat. that is almost one half of 1%. the major indices are higher across the board. there up one half of 1%. in asia overnight stocks closed mostly higher. the ek average snapping a losing streak. tampa on alert. the possible serial killer in the city. as they believe new video shows the suspect moments before a fourth murder took place. three ucla basketball players praising president trump trumpet after he helped get them back to the united states after the trio was held in china for shoplifting.
to the three basque law players i say you are welcome. go out and give a big thank you to the president of china who made a your release possible and have a great life. there are many pitfalls a on a long and winding road of life. plus talk about holy horse power. check this out. what the holy father plans to do. the wall street journal in the global economic editor is here. i've been looking for to seeing that pope story. as more consistent with who he is. let's talk walmart for a second. better than expected on both revenue and earnings. also key revenue measure.
walmart is saying that the u.s. e-commerce sales were 50% from a year ago. what is your reaction. it is a good sign for consumers. have been talking about that. as we head into the holiday shopping season. we look like some of the big retailers are doing all right. we had had 3% growth for the last three and half months. another three months a 3% growth. there up almost 3%. i think it's a great sign. they are not where we need to get wages but wages are starting to pick up.
they had been undermined by amazon in their growth. from a company strategic perspective. it also is encouraging because you see some of these companies and you wonder if they are gonna change for the times. obviously if they said that. they really are moving forward and i think that is a great sign for the economy. joining join in the conversation this morning. kevin brady. and three's company actress and author of two books to his company suzanne somers she has been an actors in actress and entrepreneur. making the final push to tax reform.
there are concerns over differences between house and senate plan. i feel really good about where we are and i think were to see a real strong boat. they gets our economy going again. i would not vote for this senate version. there is a real problem here in the equitable treatment of past remedies. he is the first republican to come out against the belt and the senate saying it benefits corporations joining me right now is the chairman of the house ways and means subcommittee. thank you for joining me. why do the corporations get a tax rate of 20%.
and pastors are at 25 percent. that is a sticking point for ron johnson. how did you come up with that. corporations as you know double tax. it is to lower both rates by the same proportion. we have also carved out for the first time ever business income within the pass-throughs so that they are moving in away to a separate and distinct from compensation income. it is a balanced approach in my view. there will continue to be discussion and drama back and forth. but the bottom line is i think this comes out of the house today. i can have to change anything in regards to the state and local income taxes. in terms of putting attacks on certain incomes. where some people will be able to deduct that. the current version of this bill has gained the support of the overwhelming majority members of the house. we will go into conference
there is no way that it will be more stressful for anybody in a higher tax state. and the compromise has currently crafted is gonna stand. a lot of provisions in the senate bill now have sunset the individual income tax provision in particular expire after 2026. if this comes through a conference committee with those kinds of sunsets and expirations for individuals is a house can have any trouble passing that? anytime you're talking about tax policy you've got to look at the totality of the package. the way we had designed this package is to offer permanent relief and we think it is something that is worth pursuing. some of our provisions you
will see a conference that comes together to try to reconcile these issues. i think the larger point is that you look at the structure of these two bills. one is about to pass in the house. in the structure is largely the same. there is differences but it is not as if this is mars and venus. the senate's proposal that they would delay the corporate tax cut. in such a hurdle to them growing. why is it potentially possibly make sense to delay that delete that cut for a full year. our preference would not be to delay it. it would be to have an immediate tax cut. in and the downstroke in investment and priming priming the pump and getting the economy moving. the only argument that they would be making as this is largely a scoring issue.
these are the types of things that can be negotiated after both houses when the belt was first outline. there was focus on middle class. there was focus on job growth. in a number of things across the board. it really resonated with the american voter. they have done a really good job of debunking each of those. it's not for the middle class is for the wealthy. we might say that not necessarily going to be simpler it will be more complicated. what do you want the american people to focus on the most and how are you going to do that. i want them to focus the most on the real tax relief i was at a family wedding over the weekend. you want this bill to pass. we are coming into adulthood.
in one of two things is can happen. they are going to be hobnobbing around trying to patch together to jobs where they will be in an economy where there is opportunity and it is expansive and growth oriented. that is the bottom line. the u.s. is the big economy in the world. most of them disapprove of the tax plan. 52 percent of voters look at that. the wealthy would benefit the most. and only 24% say the middle class would namely benefit. what do you make of these numbers and how do you push back on the idea that in fact your plan is raising taxes on a portion of americans as a way to pay for a big decline in a corporate tax rate.
go to the joint committee on taxation. they put out a document that was before the ways and means committee. 70% of the individual tax relief in this bill goes individuals and families under $200,000. that is middle class tax relief. all by the committee process and through the floor. and they had been offering amendments to replace and restore the status quo of the tax code which is dissolving underneath us. that is no pathway forward. there is gonna can be this pole and that pole. if that is what drives your ultimate decision-making get out of the business of legislating instead come up with a plan make sure it works. make sure it's inclusive and robust in dynamic and show people what it's all about. this plan and the more people that look at it the better it looks. so are you raising taxes on a portion of the people. it's a hyped up question.
there is no way that someone like me can make a statement that said nobody's tax liability is going to change under this plan. the larger question is are you driving middle class tax relief and the answer is yes. $5,000 in tax relief. my constituency look and it really care about the equations by which i get tax relief i'm just looking for tax relief. on the business side go to two in adults. the public is the at&t ceo last week said if hr one passes they will invest in additional billion dollars in the u.s. economy. i was at a small manufacturer not long ago. they said if we get to where we are proposing in terms of rates on pass-throughs they will move from spending $30 million in their plant next year to $50 million.

[indiscernible]
after have a conversation with the chinese president. president trump thank you for taking the time on our behalf. i would also i would like to thank them for the help that they provide as well. thank you for your efforts to bring us all home. and the president was responding this morning. i say you're welcome go out and give a big thank you to the president xi jinping of china and have a great life be careful there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life. it sounds like a graduation speech. that advice. can a bear help the weinstein company avoid controversy.
whatever it takes, wherever i have to go...i'm beating this. breast cancer treatment is continuing to evolve. ctca is definitely on the cusp of those changes. we really focus on taking the time with each individual patient so they can choose the treatment appropriate for them. i empower women with choices. it's not just picking a surgeon. it's picking the care team, and feeling secure where you are. visit cancercenter.com/breast appointments available now. when we love someone, we want to do right by them. what is this? but habits are hard to break. honey, where are the habaneros? and then there are things we can't control, like snoring. (snoring) now, the answer is right under your nose. introducing theravent anti-snore strips. clinically shown to reduce snoring with the power of your own breathing. nice try. there are always things that are hard to let go of. now, snoring isn't one of them. theravent. the answer is right under your nose.
performance. the biggest factors are what we had had record retention of advisors. we had been a big net recruiter now for five years. that combined with the market going up 25 percent. an interest rate spreads are at an all-time high. they really combined. how do you keep this going. that is a hard thing when you talk to analysts is what is a market can do. i think tax reform will impact that. and certainly in packed that. 70% of our clients are positive on the market said so that just that outlook will impact that. i don't think they will stay there. i think they will start giving up more the interest to clients. and as a pressure going forward but so far it is a good market. and the american net worth is now close to hundred trillion dollars.
it's a percentage of gdp. do you worry at all that we might be heading back into some kind of bubble territory that markets are getting overextended and there might be a correction coming down the line. there's always corrections. anytime you have a run like this. you will expect some kind of correction. generally they are small. what happens a tax to tax reform up and down could impact that. the underlying fundamentals of the economy are very good. in asia fairly healthy. this is not a time to be talk about bubbles. in a time we have those
bubbles. you worry a little bit but i think a lot of the earnings are driven. partly because of tax reform and positive outlook. i would not call it a bubble territory. one thing i see. are you worried about that going to be an obstacle in future growth. to the extent that it does impact trade and the sales are not happening it well. a lot of the companies are global in array. when you had earnings. when i was doing more global companies when we had trade restrictions you would do better in that company --dash a country. it depends on the severity of
the trade rules. >> i want to ask about policy coming out of this white house. this president has been the least regulatory president. we know the have of the consumer protection agency is stepping down lowering the corporate tax rate well not have an impact on investment decisions. this one after he met with the economic national council. if it goes through. if the text from goes through when you increase your investment. the other hands up. what you think happens as a result of this corporate tax rate. from a company like ours it probably doesn't change our strategy much.
we are very long-term focus. more important if you're in a small business the business deductions the small businesses are created the net jobs. i think the tax change is important for them. if your private equity maybe not so much. what about the regulatory environment. he's going to be stepping down from the consumer financial protection bureau at the end of the month. what has his rollback and regulation meant for your firm. there's a new red coming out every day. just getting ready for the rule. we probably spend $20 million plus just getting ready for the delayed part of the rule. you add all of that regulation in and it was way down.
neither seen the leaders. they're all gonna say they're cut back. we have not seen a lot of extra regulation that we have seen haven't seen the regulations going away in our in the street yet. to the extent that you continue to grow the business and were not spending all of the time on compliance. the problem with the rules as they were overlapping and they were spending a lot of money without enough benefit for the rules and regulations. we hired 2000 people last year. we continue to hire. at the same pace. paul, great to see you. the house is gearing up for a crucial vote on tax reform. kevin brady about the legislation next. and then remember the awkward moment during the seat of the union rebuttal. nothing has frustrated me more.
the details on president trumps on water bottle moment last night. back in a moment. at fidelity, trades are now just $4.95. we cut the price of trades to give investors even more value. and at $4.95, you can trade with a clear advantage. fidelity, where smarter investors will always be. .. i no longer live with
the uncertainties of hep c. wondering, what if? i let go of all those feelings. because i am cured with harvoni. harvoni is a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. it's been prescribed to more than a quarter million people. and is proven to cure up to 99% of patients who have had no prior treatment with 12 weeks. certain patients can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. before starting harvoni, your doctor will test to see if you've ever had hepatitis b, which may flare up and cause serious liver problems during and after harvoni treatment. tell your doctor if you've ever had hepatitis b, a liver transplant, other liver or kidney problems, hiv or any other medical
conditions and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. taking amiodarone with harvoni can cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. common side effects of harvoni include tiredness, headache and weakness. ready to let go of hep c? ask your hep c specialist about harvoni. maria: welcome back. good taste or a morning. i maria bartiromo. thursday, november 16th.

think through improvements or members continue to bring improvements as well. it is a big step, not the last day. i see this getting better every step we take. maria: let's go through the issues people are brought up in one of them is that ron johnson is talking about, the idea you got the pass-through companies with a 25% tax rate in the corporate tax rate of 20%. our pass-through company is not as advantageous as a big corporation with a 25% rate? >> we are putting hundreds of billions of dollars at tax relief to her pastor businesses for the first time in history. we do it in three approaches in the house. one super low rate for the mainstream pastors of every type of business and other pastors with two options to choose what's best for them. i know he's passionate about the bill. we've met several times about it. make your best case. you don't win every policy
debate you are and tax reform. make that case. at the end of the day you've got to decide are you going to defend the status quo. keep the horrible tax code in place or make your best ideas and move this forward. that is what i think every senator and every house member should do. >> now is the time to make the case. that's when you really want to combine and look at these two plans together. you are open to change at this late moment in time. >> i see this as a huge step out of the house. i look at what the senate is doing as well. let's take the best of both and if there's a better design, let's move with that. we are on schedule to get to the president's desk by the end of the year so everyone stepped up. if one keeps the process going in the end of the day let's get this done. maria: deal of wiggle room in the situation? in your chamber, peter king is
doing a no vote because of the treatment of state and local taxes are you up into putting a cap in their to appease someone like peter king? >> i run the numbers up and down the district. you see tax relief at every income level. it's not delivered to the one provision. it is through though rate, and appears district that's it does in dollars per caught up in that. what they do commit to and will continue with our lawmakers, let's work to improve this and make this better. but let's do it with in the designs of the house. maria: what's the push back with raising taxes with the corporate rave. >> we don't. it is separate from the corporate tax rate. you can ask businesses we are doing away with a whole lot of
special provisions to lower the rate on a 20% it's interested in the ability and sectors are provisions within their own sect or her. industry has to contribute something to lower corporation for the most part stepping up and doing them. maria: there are winners and losers here. for example, why the decision to spend $650 billion on a family tax credit. in other words, if you don't have kids you don't get the credit. where you live, what you do, you'll really dig to flickr from looks like. >> what we did was we change the bracket so we could help drive tax relief at every level. a lot of these families are in effect impact by state and local with the amt and others to help people. we are not done. we want in high tax states but
what we don't want to do is continue to provide tax rates for some and some state across the board for the country. i'm convinced we continue to provide the rule. >> people wonder why you didn't do too much. capital gains as well as the carried interest of action. during the campaign, president trump kept saying how unfair the carried interest deduction is where you have private equity guys to make certain revenues when in fact it's ordinary incomes. rather than a 20% rate. what's the plan for capital gains taxes. >> you have to have i. risks. you have to improve that gain and hold it and you have to today. the hedge funds are routed to
business, but it is preserved for that traditional real estate partnership. the industrial park i would've liked to do myself. our biggest hurdle was we did not repeal the obamacare taxes with the two plane 8% investment tax that frankly needs to go. i'm hopeful at some point the senate can get that done because that helps us in a big way. >> it shows a little more fairness. doesn't it? >> is obamacare taxes need to get out. the segment is trying to do what it can in that regard and i'm hopeful at the end of the day at some point they can see. >> why was an important reprint individual mandate.
they are losing favor with americans today pick 52% of americans only 25% support the plan for the majority of those polled believe the wealthy will benefit the tax code overhaul. this is possibly because people don't understand the nuts and bolts of it, but also right there in your face about the individual mandate. would you say to those people as they are going to be at a disadvantage by losing insurance. >> all i know it's in our town hall meetings and discussions when people really learn the details of this, they are so supportive. eight out of 10 americans want congress to deliver tax reform. they want lawmakers to work with president trump to get this done. i feel the strong support they are. the individual mandate that the senate is considering at this point. they can afford it.
those are modest middle income families. of course anyone who wants the affordable care act plan can do so. that freedom to choose remains the freedom to choose not to have that will be given to them. we'll watch them in the senate as they work through that issue. we don't have it in the house version of the bill today. maria: what you think the plan will look like once you get to conference and start really debating this in a couple weeks. >> so there is a surprising amount of common ground and i think it is because we work with president trump for several months to get towards one framework. we do one target on the wall. the house and senate to credit are driving targeting towards that target and a good way. we will blend the best of both workers a third design is better we will choose that. there's a lot of work to do, but
ink about this after three decades. the house taking action, and the senate assumed to. we finally got a chance to fix this broken tax code and not something to be excited about. tree into your meeting with him today. the mac we are going to get a chance of the house republicans to rally and then we will lock out and finalize tax reform. tree into historic linear. good to see you here. thank you so much. we'll be watching. kevin brady bear.

taxed twice a 20% corporate rate then also getting taxed on dividend treatments, on other things, that another 20% that is how they square the circle corporate 20% pass-through 25%. >> i would like to see ron johnson win this get it but i sure as heck don't want to see him not vote all discussions, are focused on the wrong issue, they are all looking at static analysis the reason to get economic growth we want everyone in america to pay more in taxes, if we can, because they get jobs they heretofore did not have higher wages makes pay more in taxes economic growth is the answer, economic growth is the one engine that creates tax revenue so what we're looking at here, is a bill that promotes growth not static analysis who pays more who pays less that is silly talk you need to talk only about the dynamic growth that is the key to this bill. maria: all right you make really good points i am glad you said that i wanted your take on this, i know, you
know, you thought about this worked on this so long, so doesn't bother -- might be silly talk to you but not silly talk to new yorker or new jerseyan going to see taxes go up it doesn't bother you then that eliminating the state and local deduction will mean higher taxes for some people, and doesn't bother you those people are going to be paying that higher tax as way to pay for 20% corporate race because you are all about growth want 20% leads to growth everybody benefits you are saying. >> what i am saying that doesn't pay for lowering of the corporate tax rate by itself and revenue because lowering the corporate tax rate by itself nothing else in bill would generate huge increases in revenue next 10 years, because of economic growth, because of less tax sheltering less tax evasion, people moving corporations back in u.s. all behavioral aspects maria there is never been a period of major growth tax revenues did not increase dramatically that is exactly
what is going to happen here this is all phony accounting that they are discussing, and has no sensess whatsoever to be in discussion. but that is all "new york times" some other people can talk about, it is economic growth that generates revenues period this bill will generate economic growth everyone will pay more in taxes, because they have higher paying jobs more jobs, more profits higher stock market value, that is what we all want now there are some groups, that are k excluded that is retirees don't have any source of income would be the get more jobs they do have problems, but all of the dynamics the economy will do far, far better with this bill. >> steve cortes here. >> how you doing. >> that point of growth -- i think it is amazing to me a lot of people on capitol hill have suddenly become deficit hawks almost like. >> amazing. >> funny religion now after living entire life of inequity now high and moral 20 trillion dollars of debt but to me i look at debt, because we're unwilling politically as a
country to touch entitlements i think that is a fact if that is the case there is no way out, other than growth, isn't that reality? that is it, you are exactly correct the discussion that should be had, of course, this bill generates lots and lots of growth, the least competitive country in the world, we have all of these tax -- do you know how much tax sheltering goes on in corporate income the second tax rate 17%, 16, over half of all corporate income is sheltered. my goodness tax evasion enormous every won knows you look at any literature choice of business forms where headquarters are devoid of looking at economic growth those factors pay for themselves over and over again. >> you talk about all the benefits, that we get from the business side of the tax, in place bringing down corporate rate 20% lowering the rate on individual side there is winners and losers that people for instance who get hurt, by repealing state and local tax
deduction why not put aside individual stuff now focus on business taxes, to spur kind of growth you are talking about, or muddying waters doing individual stuff which is like i say creating backlash and winners and losers. >> it doesn't really create winners and losers but you are completely right when you have 70 things in a bill people find some of them they don't like so going to use that to bash the others i want to bill just cut corporate rate from 35 to 15 nothing else leave it loan at that biggest engine of growth unfortunately they put in all other stuff, and just is confusing as you say muddies waters, we should get rid of the individual state payment tax payments, should get rid of that deduction, but we also have a pickup with amt what i think might be good compromise is 50% of the state local tax deduction eliminated with amt means you come up pretty close to even. >> so you are saying that you
are saying you would like to see some movement on this then because you say 50% you want tax in there? >> is that what you are saying. >> i just want this through the house and senate, maria, it should be eliminated entirely correctly new tax reform should be no state and local tax deductions period. >> is that going to trigger an exodus out of high tax states i do believe, that when over time, this will pressure the governors mayors of cities and states that have high taxes, on like new york, to pull in spending, lower taxes, overtime it will have an impact. >> do you think it is going to have impact right away people move out of new york why does 53%, if you bring nothing in florida -- >> so full out of new york connecticut, other states there is no room left for anyone additional to leave the states for a couple years you got to get apply a ticket seven years ahead of time no seriously, of course, it many
lead to more exodus in who arely reason i states in tennessee no income ever bringing money with them huge increase adjusted income net migration surplus two million dollars do they talk about our state no illinois, kentucky, tennessee kentucky, west virginia, it is shocking about yes k they will move faster, but there should not be a state and local tax deduction for federal tax i should not have to pay new yorker's share of taxes. >> how come they didn't do anything on carried interest. >> i have no idea what went through minds we should 4 a broad based flat tax all income treated exactly the same taxed same rate from first dollar to last dollar this was jerry brown's plan in 1992 still best plan ever proposed. >> great to is he you thanks so much. >> great to see you. thank you. >> a pleasure art laffer a brush with history last

to it in other words, i thought that attorneys general sessions was very forthcoming in the -- he was interviewed by congressional committee judiciary committee earlier this week what he said was we have a standard, it is in the books. if there is a certain level, of implication there was a crime committed we can pursue this. maria: you don't see that level at irs targeting scandal. >> no in fact what irs targeting scandal as i explained across the board comes with -- but i think it was the right that fell, largely reasonably so that lion's share of groups being targeted for abusing their standing, conservative groups. >> why do you there i she took fifth? she took fifth. >> the number two woman in irs took fifth. >> she said clearly she thought it had become a political you know. >> you can say no -- come on. >> to irs target --
