6:34 am
>> if the tax cut doesn't happen we ought to pull back, it sounds like, if it does happen, are they thinking markets go higher or the price to perfection assumes a great tax bill. >> yeah, one of the things that we have been thinking about is how strong the american economy is under energy complex, we have great fundamentals that it's hard to tease out what part of exuberant market is the tax bill and what part is recognizing the amazing competitive advantages we have globally. businesses coming back to united states, our members are entrepreneurs and they are seeing this kind of growth from low-energy costs, cheap transportation and a rule of law which is no small thing. >> you talk about members, in your book you said a bigger determination of success, it's not intelligent it's actually dirmings, how is that impacting business decisions that they are making? >> so members look at businesses like they had their own individual businesses and the thing that we were talking about

6:37 am
company is necessarily the best pitch man for a tax cut which is really aimed at everybody but i think what's interesting is, you know, some people at the high-end have been disappointed that there's not on the individual side a big tax cut they were hoping for for high net-worth individuals or high-income earners. >> specially on the coast. the blue states, california, new york, state and local taxes are going to be a real hit. maria: it'll be a tax increase. you have 650 billion-dollar credit going. >> okay. [laughter] >> but sounds like that is not dampening their enthusiasm. they are looking at the corporate rate cut, this is gad for america, we are going to get more growth out of it. we will get more competitive. >> yeah, one area of concern is if we eliminate the tax deductibility of student debt, students are graduating with the mountains of debt and entrepreneurial activity is low. it could be a lot higher.
6:38 am
the last thing you want to do is take away the tax deductibility of student debts because it makes it harder for young people to take on risks. 25 to 35-year-olds have all-time low entrepreneurial formation, we want to get that up to create the great working class and middle-class jobs that are hurting right now. maria: i wonder how this tax plan going to pan out at the end. they are going to go to conference in a couple of weeks and compare both plans, house and senate, you wonder if state and local deduction stays the way it is right now, what do you think? >> i think it's going away. maybe some version where you get a partial credit on your property taxes, but there's just not a constituency and natural champions for this are all democrats in the senate from blue state who is will not engage and who will not negotiate, they are going to give nothing. dagen: i like how -- schumer and pelosi are standing up for the highest-income earners in
6:39 am
progressive states because those are the individuals who are going to get hurt by state -- >> i do think there's another side, when you eliminate deductibility, one of the biggest hits is charitable institutions because dollars are going to move from one place to another. maria: people will leave. >> it is good news, you see in my beloved adopted democrat, maybe we shouldn't go with millionaires' tax. maria: that's why it's probably the right thing to do. i mean, at tend of the day, it's probably the right thing to do, you need to put pressure on governors and local lawmakers to lower taxes and pull in spending, having said that, i will reiterate, the top 10% pay 70% of the taxes, are we cutting taxes on the people who actually pay taxes? >> i would hope this is a 2019 project, to do something more
6:40 am
aggressive on the individual side. where is the incentive for guys like me to keep working and then you want everybody engaged. dagen: that's some of the talk coming out of washington is focus on what we are doing on the corporate side, we want to create jobs, don't worry about the individual side, there's more to come. that's some of the chatter. >> part of it is that we have debate among our members, if the dollars were going to middle class they will get to the economy faster so they both have different impacts but if the dollars are going to the wealthiest americans and there's not a real tax cut to the middle class, it may not be a stimulative and we want jobs and we want buying as well. maria: nobody is arguing that the tax cuts shouldn't go to middle class, they absolutely should, that's right. your members, do they like international? >> yes, number one area they are interested in, 60% of members are looking internationally, in the top list of technology

38-meter yachts which are quite affordable in our market. they've got a very sort of unique and different layout and he's going to keep one himself, we are selling the other one and we have a lot of interest at the moment. maria: 18.2 million on that one. what are the most important things you need to be asking for? >> the most important thing is not the yacht, it's the crew, so, you know, we have a team of experts who will talk to charters trying to find out what they are looking for, are they looking for, you know, very relaxed holiday, formal entertainment and more formal surroundings. the yachts and the style of the boat, interior and toys on board very, very important what facilities -- maria: if you run into bad waiter and you weren't expecting it, can you change course and do a different journey? >> the captain should be looking

herman cain is with us this morning. dr. mike, all here in the studio, wait till you meet them. it's going to be great. we kick it off with top stories, bombshell this morning out of uber. the company admitted to covering up massive data breach that exposes personal information of million of its customers as well as drivers, lauren simonetti with all the details right now. lauren, what a story. lauren: is it shocking, yes, absolutely not. do you remember executives coming in when the company first started, it was a start-up. they would mess up competitors like lyft by booking rides on the competitors and canceling them and bragging about it just to mess up the competition. so that was the mentality but now we are talking a mature company
7:04 am
with 68 billion-dollar valuation we are finding out in november of 2017 that in october of 2017, 57 million people mostly customers and passengers but also employees and drivers had their personal information exposed to hackers, that included addresses, emails, names, in some cases driver's license information it did not include credit card information, social security numbers but, look, we have seen the script before whether it's yahoo, equifax or target, you say one number, 57 million and as the investigation goes on that number goes up, so what are we really talking about with uber not only the hack but waiting a year but then that they paid ransom reportedly $100,000 to cover it up and the hackers assured uber that, oh yeah, we destroyed all the data that we need. this is an incredible story. larger question, do the ipo when and at what valuation, what do
7:05 am
investors start to say now and consumer lawsuit, the fcc can want go after them because they're a private company and you can see consumer lawsuits as a result of this. maria: the bigger story is that they hid it and they paid to make it go away and dagen called this so long ago because she's the one that they pointed out that they have access to data all of the time. very few people realize that when you pointed that out a year ago. dagen: it was -- apple was one of the big guns that forced him to stop tracking location when you got out of car. in fact, on the app, it used to be when you would go to change location services, if you tweet them under the uber app you couldn't say only track -- only use location services while using the app, that there was -- you couldn't -- you couldn't set it that way, now you can but there was at one point whether location services for uber were either on or off and so they -- they have pulled away from that
7:06 am
but it raise it is issue of how poorly run this company was from travis. lauren: he's working to clean this mess up hence firing chief executive offer, you're right. maria: mentality was right from the ghetto. that was the mentality of the company, lauren, thank you. we want to go to capitol hill, president trump is weighing in on allegations roy moore while also blasting democratic opponent, watch. >> i can tell you one thing for sure, we don't need a liberal person in there, a democrat jones. let me just tell you, roy moore denies it, that's all i can say. he denies it, by the way, he totally denies it. [laughter] maria: joining us right now katrina pearson national spokesperson and donald trump's presidential campaign, katrina pearson, good to see you.
7:07 am
ly show you the cover of the new york pest. i'm with the perv, trump backs roy moore. >> i didn't see the headline when bill clinton was running in office but i will say that the president didn't really say anything new. he stated the facts, what's going on with alabama right now, there's a decision, two decisions actually that need to be made by alabama voters, number one, considering that you have roy moore's denial and you have the accusations, they have to decide for themselves which one is more conclusive to the person that they know and have known for a very long time in that state and number two, whether or not it's worth giving up the seat particularly when we are in a climate where you have a democrat that's going to be supporting abortion, that's not going to support stopping sanctuary cities and probably not going to support tax reform and all of the things that is on the tht pes agenda. he just simply stated the facts. maria: no, that's true, james, isn't it, he's not good on border, he's not good on tax
7:08 am
reform, he wants to raise taxes, all the things that are against the president's agenda? >> yeah, i mean, good on border to me is letting people in to work and contributing to the country but that aside, i think this is kind of -- we are still in the bill clinton era which is that until bill clinton kind of looked at someone's character that was a big part of voting, the big message of the clinton years was just win, baby, if the economy is good, if you think the overall situation in the country is working for you, kind of overlook personal flaws and the person in the white house, obviously we kind of had a similar choice last year, two people with character flaws, people chose trump and now it's going to be interesting to see what alabama thinks of this, they seem credible allegations, he's denied them but maybe people just vote on the policy. >> can i point out, there are in blue dress, no cigars and no photos, this is a little bit different than talking about the
7:09 am
case of roy moore. dagen: katrina, the girl was 14 year's old when it happened, let's be clear. >> i agree with you 100%, dagen. dagen: that's the biggest issue for anybody who is deep -- i would say all women are disturbed by the allegations. >> absolutely. dagen: woman went on the record was 14 at the time. >> i absolutely agree with you. two decision that is the voters of alabama have having to make is do they believe it or not and is it worth sacrificing all of the principles and values on the political side and that's a tough decision. >> i think what you pointed earlier, good morning, you're saying partisan, if it's a democrat, how would they feel like but we are in an environment right now where basically this sexual harassment, rape all of the allegations are coming out with the me too campaign, it's hollywood, it's politics, everywhere, i think the situation in alabama would
7:10 am
probably be a lot different if it wasn't in this environment. >> i have been active on twitter with this very thing because it's disturbing with a lot of accusations coming out. but we are in a perfect position to address that, we have sitting members of congress being accused of misconduct today and no one will name their names. we have seen millions of dollars being paid out with tax dollars to shut people up. the people need to know what's going on so we can draw lines of distinction today and they are not. that's why i say it's a tough decision in alabama but alabama needs to make it. maria: go ahead, james. there's the media distrust part of this too. i shouldn't assume that if you vote for roy moore that it means that you accept the allegations but you overlook them. it could be people saying you're dropping this news on us very late in the campaign, you know, we want -- we would have liked
7:11 am
more time to evaluate and as you said, he's denied it and there isn't the kind of evidence that there might be in some other cases. >> well, and this is a very slippery slope and a lot of people who are even potentially thinking about running for public office need to take into account any one at any time to make any allegation for any reason and if this is the standard that we are going to set we are on dangerous turf going further and not the mention as mother of a son we have to be careful about what those lines are but we are in the perfect position and i will say this again with the current members of congress being accused, those names have to be named, the people need justice, people need transparency particularly on this issue because there are a lot of people today losing their jobs based upon allegations and we have to make sure that they are going to follow through. maria: so the house ethics committee opened an investigation on democratic senator after reports became public that he secretly settled
7:12 am
with a staffer in 2015 after alleged sexual misconduct. there's a creep list going around and the fact that they are settling investigations on taxpayer money? >> well, just goes to show you the hypocrisy and double standard and political atmosphere, i will say that house ethics committee is oxymoron and lead on the issue. i think it's great that democrats suddenly have found moral compass on the way women should be treated. had this not happened in hollywood, we probably wouldn't be having this discussion. we should take opportunity as women and media to move ball forward and demand that people be told who these individuals are and they should step down immediately if they are abusing women, we should find out how much money went out to cover this up, silence of women because this cannot be the
7:13 am
standard moving forward. dagen: you have to file allegations based on congressional rules within 180 days of harassment and go through confidential mediation and to katrina's point, people should be outraged that this is taxpayer money and we don't -- there is no accountability for it. $17 million in overall harassment settlements in the last 20 years. maria: will we ever find out? dagen: we will from this day forward. >> if we keep pushing, that's absolutely right. maria: thanks so much. katrina pearson. take a break. will jpmorgan will get into bitcoin now despite jamie dimon calling it a fraud. a bounce above the competition, the harlem globe, they are here coming up, back in a minute.

maria: welcome back, transforming health care in america, the future of obamacare uncertain but one issue affect ing nationwide shortage of nurses and doctors. start-uptaking the middleman out of staffing equation, cofounder and ceo nomad, he joins us to talk more about it. great to see you. >> thanks for having me. maria: characterize the situation for us, every month that we do the job's numbers we always know that the jobs today are in health care because we need like a million new nurses in the next couple of years, how
7:25 am
do you get one of those jobs? >> yeah, you're absolutely right. as you know, a huge shortage of doctors, a huge shortage of nurses across the country, hospitals, clinics, every health care organization is struggling to hire enough doctors, clinicians to take care of exploding number of patients and nomad is a technology solution to cut through all of the red tape and make it simple to do malpractice insurance, background checking so that we can get doctors and hospitals together, solve some of the shortage problems. maria: you compared to air bnb system. >> convenience of air bnb, summoning an uber from your home, we are bringing the level of convenience with nomad. >> specially in areas where the legal malpractice system is particularly hostile to the practice of medicine, may not
7:26 am
have ob-gyn all of the time, maybe people can be moving around temporarily in different spots? >> that's exactly what this is. there are lots of doctors who want to do extra work around the country, a lot of latent capacity in the system but so challenge to go -- to find jobs and you can quickly and cheaply fill those positions that ob-gyn in rural area. dagen: no decent ob-gyn would move to rural area because they won't get paid as much even in a suburban or particularly large urban area? >> the solution of clinician shortage is multifold, this is one part of that solution which is making the liquidity of the workforce higher, making easier
7:27 am
for those doctors who do want to move around, who do have the extra time and interesting to help out, even for a week, a month in a particular area, so reducing those barriers, making it simpler for doctors to move around is what we are on. maria: what are the barriers, obviously you need a skill set? >> i'm a doctor myself, i want to help out with the shortage. it took me ten months to organize a three-day job, you have to go through brockers, paperwork to final out, you have to deal with people on the phone and fax machines, literally people are still using fax machines, what we try to do is eliminate complexity and use modern technology to move things along much more quickly and that makes a big difference. dagen: and i know this from personal experience growing up in a very small town, what you are seeing, though, which is doing something some of of what you're doing with nomad is you
7:28 am
have health care collectives, a hospital system that bias up all of the smaller practices across an entire area so they can move doctors around them. that's a very regional phenomena i i would guess but couldn't that go nationally? >> you are seeing consolidation partially for that reason because you can introduce efficiencies with the workforce among many other things when you link multiple hospitals and clinics together, so we are seeing a lot more of that across the country now. >> how is our current health care situation going on with government impacting endeavors and impacting nurses in general? >> it's a challenging situation. we need an hour to talk about it. [laughter] >> all joking aside, you know, i think that -- what we are talking some of the quick fixes on the table are not going to be the solution. i can't talk about the politics, i'm not qualified, i'm just a doctor. >> what do you see? >> what i see is that what we
7:29 am
want to do is -- what i would love to see for every person in america to have insurance so that everyone is invested in health, we can put that issue to bed and focus on innovation, technology solutions, reducing the cost of care, improving the quality of care. those are the things that we all actually care about. maria: you've got gotten in the telemedicine market? >> yeah, what nomad is single destination of all types of jobs. doctors want to answer the call, help pages across the country and this is a really growing way of doing that, kind of a return to the roots of medicine where doctors can see patients in their home although now with the convenience of technology with a phone and so what we are now doing is putting doctors into those kind of telemedicine jobs through nomad. maria: really interesting stuff. alexi joining us there. coming up, police dog is ready for anything. check it out, amazing response to k-9 training with officers.

7:36 am
what we are worried about is that we are shaking cushions for money. we are kind of losing sight of tend goal. maria: where do you see growth right now? you have been so accurate on how strong or not strong actually which is what you said is is the economy, how is it today? >> the trend continues to be a slow deacceleration in the rate of growth which is not surprising. we are in the year 9 of this recovery, the fed's tightening, you expect the economy losing some of the the stem and so what we need is that shock to the system so get growth going again in the form of, you know, really positive physical -- fiscal stimulus and what's concerned me
7:37 am
all the focus has been on corporate side, we need to reform corporate tax code but the reason why growth in the hiring and cap x has been so weak throughout recovery hasn't been the corporate taxes were too high, this 35% rate has been in effect for 15 years and didn't prevent the biggest investment bubble in of our lime in 90's, cap-x booms and mid-2000's that it's the be all end all doesn't really add to me >> i'm wondering the other big piece -- >> i'm ready. [laughter] dagen: oh, yes, she is. >> i'm wondering about the other big piece of the trump economic revival project which is deregulation, now he's done some of it, congress has sent him more than a dozen bills to roll back obama regulations, the
7:38 am
value that he's bringing unlike the obama administration, businesses aren't waiting for what new scheme out of washington is coming, i think that has a value. it seems like cap x is starting to rise. i wonder how much value you put in that deregulatory effort in terms forecasting growth and growth in cap x specifically. maria: i think that's one of the reasons why we have two quarters of 3% role because of the rollback in regs. >> absolutely. that's a huge shift and from the standpoint, you know, ceo optimism, they can now -- like you are saying, they can move forward with the thought that they are not going to be suddenly burdened with all kinds of new regulations so that's great, but what i keep coming back to is that at the end of the day why am i going to hire more people, build more plant if i'm not going to sell more merchandise, ultimately you have to know that you'll be able to
7:39 am
move the product, one thing that we've had throughout the cycle specially in the last few years is persistently high inventory to sales ratio which is surprising with the technology, with inventories, that kind of control, we shouldn't have elevated inventory to sales ratio much le as much as we have in the degree we have and there's clearly been overestimation of consumer demand already and now we are getting again late in the cycle. so my main issue with the tax plan as it is is it doesn't do enough for consumers especially at the high-end, i hate to say this and we have talked about this before, but the top 20% do -- they spend more than the bottom 620% of consumers, so if you're not going to lower their taxes or actually your going to raise their taxes, it's really hard to get some, you know, lively growth. maria: exactly what we have been saying, dagen. dagen: it's not because we have
7:40 am
a personal issue with it, it's just simply -- conservatives promise to go cut taxes but they are not cutting taxes and raising taxes on the people who pay the most in taxes. maria: and spend the money. dagen: you talk about the economy, you have the markets, every market is at record high, 10-year yield is still 2.36%, what is going on in the markets that sees what you're seeing? is it the flattening of the yield curve, is that the sign of concern we should be paying to? >> well, there are a lot of little signals in there like the yield curve, which is wal-mart which is starting to outperform. when wal-mart starts to do better than higher-end retailers or the markets in general it's usually sign in turning point in
7:41 am
terms of people actually having to shop at wal-mart because they can't afford to shop elsewhere. when wal-mart is doing well, it's bad, when wal-mart starts to underperform is good for the economy. dagen: i noticed that over the weekend all the major high-end retailers and department stores online it's shot bob here in new york city, saks, their sales broke over the weekend monday or tuesday before thanksgiving when sales of 40% off or more it is usually a bad sign. >> this gets to your question on the market. i think the market is really overestimating estimating the ec boom from the tax plan and i have been describing this as harvey weinstein story market, essentially it's old, the second largest in history, really overvalued. look at pe ratios but you have
7:42 am
to be long, if you don't cozy up to this market and you're a fund manager it'll cost you your career, it's really true. you're a fund manager and not fully invested you could possibly lose your job. maria: what are the numbers? you have real numbers. compare that with what's going on with earnings. >> over the last 12 months as trump likes to point out, 5 and a half trillion to market cap, gdp, that's 7 times the growth in gdp over the same 12-month stretch and it's 40 times the growth in profits over that stretch. so the markets are really excited about what's coming down the pipe and the way the tax code, the tax bill is structured right now i'm not sure it's going to generate that kind of growth. >> i should have argued with your first premise on the corporate tax code, if that rate comes down the after tax returns to investment increase,
7:43 am
shouldn't that have a big effect? >> well, why won't they continue to buy shares and pay dividends, they have done a trillion a year in buybacks in dividends and we have seen consumer demand turn sideways, i mean, it's high-end consumers who hold the stocks but doesn't do much for the rest of the -- >> the growth we are seeing so far you think is all the trump deregulation? >> well, you have a lot of sort of stuff in terms of energy, et cetera, but deregulation is definitely been a major factor but ultimately i keep coming thank that and demand, who is going to produce more stuff if they can't sell it at tend of the day? maria: you have to get moving on the consumer. >> harvey weinstein market. maria: old and -- >> loaded. [laughter] >> unknown reason just out of no where, everyone is going to acknowledge, they knew it all along, of course, it was overvalued. maria: that's good too.

here is what i say, if you can take control of your health, cut your weight, stop smoking, control your alcohol intake, you are cutting risk of cancer a huge package, and that starts with taking control of your life step one. dagen: i think if you look the other way 50% of people who get cancer have no control over it i think unnerving to a lot of people whether the rising rate of women never smoke getting on cancer whether glia blastoma out of nowhere a death sentence, people who get lung cancer told well you got some are environment factors, and you are like what does that mean what am i coming into contact with other than asbestos has given me -- lung cancer -- >> you are right 50% of cases the answer from doctor is we don't know why are this cancer occurred so those people that is where all of this break us through cancer treatments

8:35 am
than a week on this issue but yesterday he did a couple things, one he criticized moore's opponent but also highlighted moore's defense. >> he totally denies it says it didn't happen, and you know of you to listen to him also you are talking about -- he said 40 years ago this did not happen. i can tell you for a fact we do not need somebody that is going to be bad on crime bad on brurdz bad with military, bad for the second amendment. >> those comments from pet suddenly came yesterday as many within inner circle distansing them from moore for example within past week the president's daughter ivanka trump and attorney general jeff sessions said there was no reason to doubt moore's accuser, now the president was defending moore yesterday, he was also asked what his message would be to women all across this country. >> women are very special, i think it is a very special
8:36 am
time because a lot of things are coming out i think that is good for society and i think it is very, very good for women i am very happy a lot of these things are coming out. reporter: while president eager to weigh in on roadwayh roy moore yesterday did notaway in on john franken john conyers the house ethics committee investigating conyers after revealed he settled a sexual misconduct complaint against him a couple years ago conyers denies all wrongdoing. maria: thank you so much blake burman white house, 2020 presidential election, donna brazile says she believes there are dozens of democrats waiting in wings to take on president trump the former national committee chairman told usa today this i am up to 51 people i think will likely seek presidency time for new generation of democrats to step up if you want to run, run. joining us is former republican presidential candidate herman cain helman
8:37 am
good to see you thanks so much for joining us. what do you think a lot of competition on democrat side come 2020 huh? >> that doesn't mean she has -- 50 leaders you can have 100 the people the one should emerge is someone that shows leadership ability, that is why president trump won, secondly you might have a lot of people interested because the democrat party as you know is in disarray so maybe there are people out there believe they can pull the party together, and pull the party forward. but just because she -- has identified a large number that might run, doesn't necessarily mean it is going to be a serious challenge to president trump. maria: you are right about the message, you know, you need the message, that will resonate with people, of course, the president during the election was all about jobs, economic growth, that is why we are taking about his economic policy so much, and passage of tax plan, if that doesn't happen if they can't get it across the finish line herman a lot of people are
8:38 am
going to be fired. >> you are absolutely right. his message campaigning, is the exact agenda that he is carrying out, it is about tax cuts and simplification close on partially optimistic like a lot of people didn't get repeal and replace across finish line because of senator john mccain of arizona who stabbed america in the back, he has been very straightforward about immigration and wall not backed down on any of these there is a whole list regulatory rollback doesn't get as much tension as it should i happen to believe a lot of regulatory rollback, is responsible for a lot of the optimism that we see every day, else on your show about what is happening to the stock market. so if you are going to ask what is the message of the democrat party? all you have to do look at chuck schumer nancy pelosi democrats that already in elected position their message is obstruct, obstruct, obstruct, resist, resist,
8:39 am
resist means they are rejecting the will of the american people, they don't have a message to compare with message of president trump. maria: what about his party are you expecting gopers to come out and try to reason i for president a lot of speculation around jeff flake for example, is his own party going to try to take him out? >> i don't believe any g.o.p. people are going to try to run against him to take him out. they are just going to probably try to work against him like many of them are doing right now. >> true. >> if you go to my web site, herman i have posted pay attention we are keeping track of the republican rinos on health care the republican rinos on tax bill going to keep a rolling list of all the republicans in name only so we can share with the public because many of these republicans they believe that
8:40 am
their constituency has short memories some dochl but we don't. and we are going to make sure people know how on the big issues that the public cares about, many of them did not support the president. and these are the things that the american people want. maria: that is a good point we go to your web site to check that out we've got to talk about lavar ball what is wrong with this person president trump is calling for the father of the ucla player arrested for allegedly shop lifting in china president is calling his father ungrateful here is tweet to lavar ball is this morning it wasn't the white house it wasn't state department it wasn't father la rare so-called people on the ground in china that got his son out of a long term prison sentence, it was me. too bad lavar is just a poor man's version of condining but without hair just think lavar you could have spent next five to 10 years during thanksgiving with your son in china no nba contract to support you remember lavar shoplifting is not a little thing it is a really big deal
8:41 am
especially in china, ungrateful fool. now this sentiment is shared by a lot of people i think, herman, because the guy. >> right. >> refuses to say hey mr. president thank you for stepping in getting involved. but should thep generating time energy on this. >> probably not the president is who he is two things going on in my view, maria, one, lavar ball is using this as an opportunity to get attention. secondly, maybe i don't know, maybe the president knows if he goes back at lavar ball, that it is going to attract a lot of media attention to give the media another rabbit to chase as i call it, that is not going anywhere. there is no substance whatsoever in this exchange between these -- these athletes's father and president so it probably is but there is no substance
8:42 am
