uncertainty index. uncertainty as you can see is falling. does that mean happy days are here again? number of factors to consider and here is go through it with us, brenda buttner, anchor of bulls and bears. and it means optimism is up but is that real or is it false optimism. maybe just fleeting optimism until the next report? >> that is good point. confidence is at pre-recession levels, but that is largely in part because two of reasons. the housing market is up and the stock market is up. housing market is hardly on a good foundation. we don't know if the recovery is really here yet. the stock market is showing some signs of volatility and uncertainty. consumers may be feeling optimistic because of those things, but we don't know where they are going. >> gregg: economists have
1:19 pm
always said policy uncertainty is holding back economic growth, which is probably true. now they say, guess what, it has changed. i'm not so sure about that. obamacare has not been fully implemented, businesses all over america can't figure out what means for them, isn't that definition of uncertainty? >> that is right. if you look at obamacare we're already seeing some small businesses taking full time workers and putting them to be part-time workers so they don't have to provide the benefits that are under the plan. then there is also, we don't know what kind of regulations are coming out of the white house through executive order. there is a whole host of uncertainties feerngs the index down. >> gregg: and potential government shutdown you have the budget battles over the summertime and you get a debt limit deadline yet again, even more uncertainty? >> basically because people don't know if they are going to be facing tax increases.
1:20 pm
more money out of their pocket. we did see the payroll tax increases did have an impact on spending. even though optimism is up latest gauge of spending is that it is flat. that is the real driver of this economy. >> gregg: put a couple of graphics on the screen. here is where the obama recovery stands. it ticked up real unemployment is 10.9% or higher. g.d.p. is a meager 2.4%. then here a quote from director ucla forecast -- it's not a recovery. it's not even normal growth. it's bad. is he right? >> to some extent. it is a recovery. we're not in a recession but we had a session that bent like this. it was worse since the great depression. now we're having a recovery that is barely flat lining. that is hardly the kind of growth that we would need
1:21 pm
to take our wealth back to pre-recession levels. >> 49 months in the reagan recovery brought the unemployment down to 5.5%. he did it differently. >> and also taking back government regulations and we're seeing the opposite of that, as well. that is really the focus point of the debate. do you have tax cuts, tax increases, more spending -- that is where we're coming down. >> gregg: reagan had a tougher recession because interest rates were 21%. >> yes. historic lows. >> and inflation was awful will he dropped that all the way down. brenda gooqd see you. catch more brenda on "bulls and bears" at 10:00 a.m. eastern right here on fox news channel.

1:31 pm
this morning. >> we definitely make sure that the borders are going to be secure and we also need to make sure that basically benefits don't know to people that are here illegally. so really, i'm very hope until fl that we can pass a bill but agree with is senator paul the challenge is getting it through the house so we have a bill that passes the house. doesn't do anybody any good to just pass in the senate. >> patti ann: joining us is former white house political director under president bush and julie radinski an aide to former senator frank lautenberg. there is group of eight senators working on the senate bill that would make it more likely to pass in the house. marco rubio is one of eight and he wants the bill to require the department of homeland security to meet specific goals at specific
1:32 pm
times in terms of securing the border before any legalization of undocumented immigrants can start. so border security a big private for some of the critics, can a compromise be found? >> i really think a compromise can be found. senator john cornyn is great senator from texas. he is judiciary committee member and we ought to write the toughest language we can come up with so we make sure that we don't have a flood of illegal immigrants all over again. his point that we can pass tough security and fix the problem, i don't know why anybody in the senate would be opposed to that. i don't know why any american would be opposed to it. >> patti ann: khuik schumer is part of that group of eight and he independents the border security concerns and he is expressing confidence they can find common ground.
1:33 pm
he also says you can't make the standard so unreasonable that the whole goal is to pork the bill -- what say you. >> for border security, border security means 100 percent none penetration. i think that is unrealistic. israelis has the toughest even a walls they built it's unrealistic. so i would like to see what the metrics are. i sympathize people that live near the border but we need to see the stronger metrics to say that border security will or will not make this bill. >> patti ann: senator john cornyn is saying he wants a provision that would require customs to monitor hundred percent of the border and track all foreigners entering all air and seaports and those
1:34 pm
convicted of serious misdemeanors being prohibited from entering. and the intention is just tank the whole bill. do you agree with that? >> i agree with julie we need to find a way to resolve this. what john cornyn is saying we need to monitor hundred percent of the border. he doesn't have the expectation the federal government will do this perfectly. we have seen over the course of the last week none of us expect it to work perfectly. the other side of the question is people overstaying their visas. it's a question of people who come here legally for temporary period of time and then don't go back to their country when their visa has expired. that is going on every day in this country. once again, it's who we get this immigration system modernized and fixed, it will continue to go on and american people will
1:35 pm
continue to be frustrated. that is why they need to work to get it resolved with the democrats so the house can deal with it and get a bill done. >> patti ann: you know, speaking of the visa issue, senator rand paul that is one of the problems. some of these visa rules, he thinks a lot of the rules need to be changed so many of these people that are on temporary visas can be allowed to stay here legally. that one of the issues is that the rules are throwing out the wrong people and letting the wrong ones staying? >> i will say if you want stronger enforcement of any kind there had to be a funding mechanism. homeland security is overstretched and what they have to do with immigration. republican friends talk about stronger enforcement, you need funding mechanism to do that. you can't continue to ask people to do more with less
1:36 pm
money. i think larger issue is not just senate but they have chairman of the house, i would like to see if he comes up with a compromise -- i think it's the gang of seven in house. i'm not sure what the leadership in the house is going to do because the senate can do whatever it wants but do you have the tea party members hijacking any reform and we need mandatory hundred percent non-penetration. >> that is not true. if you read the "wall street journal" this morning you'll see a tea party member judge john carter is working for an immigration reform bill on these issues. i want to get to an answer on that. >> patti ann: unfortunately, we are coming up to a hard break. i do want to see -- matt,

1:52 pm
growing questions over how big the n.s.a. data mining operation has grown and how effective it is in tracking terrorists. judith miller is an investigative reporter and author and fox news contributor. we will start with the n.s.a. insider who provided the information to the "guardian" 29 years old and an american. he is a contractor who worked for the national security agency and a former c.i.a. agent. here is what he had to say in an interview taken why he decided to expose the program. >> because even if you are not doing anything wrong you are watched and recorded. the storage capability is increasing each year by orders of magnitude to where it is to the point you don't have to have done anything wrong, you simply have to have fallen under suspicion by someone, even a
1:53 pm
wrong call and they use the system to go back in time and scrutinize every decision you have ever made. >> what do you make of this? >> this is going to be a classic whistle blower case. this guy is no bradley manning, the fellow on trial in a military tribunal or someone who hit "dump "button and 250,000 diplomatic cables were disclosed or divulged. this guy said he went over every single document to make sure there wouldn't be harm to the national security but now the representative who overseas this, said he didn't know enough to make that call. he shouldn't be making that call. i think, still, given what we know at the beginning, the fact he stepped forward and identified himself, it will be very tricky for the obama administration to pursue him.
1:54 pm
>> heather: there are reports that the white house is, indeed, looking into a control investigation of these leaks and presumably of the leaker. he said and i quote, "i understand i will be made to suffer for my actions but i will be satisfied not federation of secret law, unequal pardon and executive powers that rule the world i love are revealed even for an instant." he thinks he will suffer. >> he is offering his self up as a first amendment martyr and privacy martyr. that is why politically it will be very dicey. we still don't know enough about either of the programs that have been revealed thanks to his efforts. we know the prison program was aimed overseas at foreigners. >> that is the program that is collecting e-mails and internet data. >> you believe there is a distinction between the prison program and the phone record

collection? >> i do. the internet connection program aimed overseas is very useful and it is probably within the legal constraints that have been established to make sure people's privacy isn't violated. however, we don't know enough yet about that program or the other program which trouble me more, the verizon program. it is all of the telephone providers are scooping up the information. the president said no one is listening to the content of the calls and no one knows without are this. this is data mining. any security expert can tell you if you put enough of the individual documents together you can know a lot about people quickly. congress is going to be focusing on that program because it does affect americans. >> lot of questions to be answered. we are out of time. judith miller, thank you. >> gregg: another week, another controversy for the white house, the latest is what

2:01 pm
head out to soak up the summertime rays we have some key tips to make sure you are well protected from the sun's dangers to color skin. >> brand new details on the government's snooping scandal. we are learning more about the man who said he leaked government secrets of the surveillance of millions of americans. at the brush newspaper that broke the story reveals the story. steve? >> the 29-year-old american who reportedly leaked the classify ied information, edward snowden said it is important for americans to understand this. >> even if you are not doing anything wrong you are being watched and recorded and the storage capability increases each year consistently by orders
2:02 pm
of magnitude to where it is to the point you don't have to have done anything wrong, you simply have to eventually fall unsuspicion. >> he now is holed up in a hong kong hotel after allow his name to be released, a former c.i.a. analyst working for a defense contractor in the hawaii office of the n.s.a. when he revealed classified information to the "guardian" of london and its journalists. here is more. >> i am just another guy who sits there in the office, watching what is happening and think this is something that is not our place to decide. the public needs to decide whether the programs or policies are right or wrong. >> this has sparked a spirited debate about secret surveillance. the white house and many are saying this is effective way to prevent terrorist attacks but others want to re-open the debate of the patriot act post
2:03 pm
lend that made it possible. >> it is private information. if the government is gathering that information, the american people ought to know. we ought to have a discussion about it. we ought to re-open the patriot act and put some limit on the amount of data the n.s.a. is collecting. >> the n.s.a. is calling on the script to investigate possible criminal charges against the leaker who the "guardian" revealed to be edward snowden. >> for more on this we will bring in our senior judicial analyst, judge napolitano, joining on the telephone. look, judge, this guy snowden leaked classified information which is a crime. will he be pruetted? >> i think he will be classified. he claims to be in hong kong,
2:04 pm
which is under the china and the president spent the weekend with the president of china but we have extradition treaty with the chinese and if the chinese want him to be prosecuted, it will be in los angeles tomorrow. if they don't want him to be prosecuted they will find a political way for him not to get here but he sounds as if he welcomes the prosecution. in his mind he has done nothing wrong and nothing prosecutable. >> gregg: some of the explanations make sense and some are like on the edge of being odd. some are already calling him a whistleblower if you look at 1989 congressional act, the whistle mother act, -- whistleblower act giving protection to those who work for the federal government when they report acknowledge misconduct. i'm not sure this qualified as "agency misconduct." judge, it appears as though all of the programs were signed off
2:05 pm
on by a judge, when a judge says it's legal, it is legal, right? >> yes and no. as you know, something can be legal and unconstitutional at the same time, counselor. this is where we get in the great area where values, value judgments, the constitution, and different ways of interpreting the constitution may collide with the law. as the law is worded, we are speaking of the patriot act and other enabling legislation, the surveillance was lawful but as the fourth amendment is wordeds the surveillance was unconstitutional. so a court will have to decide that. i don't know if a court will even let him argue to a jury he was a whistleblower and what he did was correct f he does, a jury will decide. if not, a judge will decide. >> gregg: a higher court would have to preview the decision to determine whether he misapplied
2:06 pm
the law of the fisa or where the law itself is so expansive that it violates the constitution. judge, that could take years, right? >> absolutely. and we don't know if this give will be free in the years it will take to resolve this or incarcerated because we don't know what path the government will take. we do know that the obama administration, looking at the case involving our friend and colleague, james rosen, which the information that came out seemed like something that everyone already knew, the obama administration has been extremely aggressive, far more aggressive than any administration in the post world war ii era of prosecuting leak are whether they characterize them as whistle blowers or not. my guess they will pursue imaggressively and it will be in the gray area where value
2:07 pm
judgments and the constitution collide. >> gregg: the recipients of the leak and the "washington post" and "the guardian" those reporters are no longer in jeopardy given what holder has vowed. >> that is correct. glenn greenwald is the james rosen of this case. >> gregg: thank you, judge. kentucky senator, ronald reagan paul raising deep concerns over the snooping scandal. stay opportunity for senator paul's interview with chris wallace on fox news. >> new reaction to the i.r.s. abuse scandal. ranking members of the house oversight committee are responding to allegations that washington ordered the i.r.s. targeting of politically conservative groups. peter communicationcy -- peter

exceptional drought which is unfortunately going to continue the next couple of weeks. the temperatures show very warm across the southwest and we will deal with high fire potential into the new work week. back to you. >> janice dean, thank you. >> gregg: taking advantage of people when they are already down, coming up next, the victims of the devastating victims in oklahoma are being dealt another blow from their fellow man, this time. >> brand new scandal rocking the white house and how they will impact president obama and the second term? our political insiders are on deck. >> gregg: a new way for employees to get extra vacation time but it is not without controversy.

2:20 pm
with workers. it is pretty widespread, certain of the programs are, there is something called pay time off where you pool together your vacation days, sick days and personal days and they are all dealt with. it is much easier for human resources because they don't worry about someone calling in at the last minute. you have more flexibility about how you use that. that is up 52 percent. >> pay time off is one thing but the idea of saying you gave me 15 days and i only want ten and i would rather have the extra cash or i want 20 days off i will take a honeymoon this year and i want to buy more or sell some. how common is that? >> it is not that common. the idea is basically that you put it in a pool and the trend is that many more people want to buy the vacation time than sell it. which is surprising given that we have this problem with unemployment.
2:21 pm
it is generally younger workers who do not have administration much vacation accrue asked they are happy to give up the money to get the extra vacation time. >> on the other hand people run into emergency or a spouse lose as job or whatever and they would rather have the extra cash and they do not need the time off. can you go that way. in some cases it is where you can sell or buy your days into a general pool where other employees can buy or sell into it and other cases it is direct interaction with the company. >> yes and it is 50/50 on both sides. there could be some blow back because we have seen a lot of reaction to the flexibility of people working off site, yahoo basically said, no more. so not sure that flexibility is going to be a trend in the future. >> patti ann: are we hearing from companies it sun workable or do they limit the days? if you take off too many days
2:22 pm
off what is the point? >> the financial services company says that this really has increased the productivity. we know that americans take far fewer vacation days than those in other parts of the world and if you come back renewed and refreshed it is good. kill better clark has been done this for 15 years and it seems to is helped their employees. >> patti ann: a trend that could be catching on. thank you, brenda. you can catch brenda on "bulls & bears" on saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. eastern right here. >> gregg: outpouring of support as south africa pray for the hospitalized former president mandela. we will have an update on his health. >> patti ann: halfway around the world county a race against time for a little girl who still need as lung transplant. the major set become now is coming days after a major victory in court.

months and doctors have told her parents she only has weeks to live without a transplant. she now is on the adult waiting list after a federal judge suspended the under 12 rule which previously limited her options for a lung transplant and made a similar ruling for an 11-year-old of new york. the organ procurement transplant network is meeting tomorrow to review current transplant policy. and we spent time with the family and asked what her daughter's life will be like after a transplant. >> she goes back to school, she is like all the other kids and before she had a decline of lung function, she went to school and did everything other kids did before the lungs deteriorated where she needed new lungs. i want to go back to being like another kid and doing everything that kids do. >> the family will bring us
2:30 pm
updates. >> thank you. >> gregg: the hits keep on coming for president obama with the latest bombshell word that the nasa nasa is -- the n.s.a. is tracking every move you make all in the name of national security on top of the news that the government is keeping tabs of phone calls and millions of verizon users. so far the president's approval rating is holding fairly steady, roughly half in half. 48 percent say that he is doing a good job, and 47 percent say he is not. does this number really matter given all of the simultaneous scandals? you need a calculate late to keep up with them. we have pat caddell, and john leboutillier, and in miami
2:31 pm
bureau, doug schoen who is a fox news contributor and former pollster if bill clinton. try to stay dry, doug, i know it is inclement. starting with you, given all of these scandals, but given that the president's approval ratings are holding steady, what do you make of that? >> well, be clear, this is an administration and a presidency that is in crisis. you have three huge issues. you have the n.s.a. issue that broke this week. the phone records. you have three scandals with the i.r.s. the justice department. you also have an agenda that basically is dead in the water. this is a presidency that is effectively at a tip point. i believe the approval rating is much more likely to go down and down substantially than it is to go up. >> you looked at some new poll
2:32 pm
members that just came out, pat, and the american public is dead set against the n.s.a. programs. >> let me tell you, what we have is a political class in washington, the bubble down there, and all saying people care about security, or they don't care about security or their privacy. wrong, overwhelming poll shows 26 percent favor and 59 percent oppose. get this, people who identified as mainstream americans, 69 percent against and the political class 71 percent for. the american people are going, this is outrageous. doug's point is right. look what is happening to the president. the movement of democrats and independents and they are starting to happen which is going to move him down. it will continue to erode as more of this affects people. >> it is more that he will erode but the entire political establishment, republicans and democrats, who have been in favor of these types of
2:33 pm
programs, i think it is going to divide the american people versus their government more than we have seen maybe ever. >> gregg: is this a titanic moment, the iceburg? >> the term we have used, we have been in a prerevolutionary moment when the public is locking for something different. >> let me just say it is not democrat and republican, conservative and liberal, the country out here is against that washington class and the n.s.a. scandal showing when you see the arrangement is broken across all party lines. >> gregg: three polls in a row and we will begin with the "wall street journal" and nbc news poll because what is striking about the independents in the poll, the independent approval rating on the president has dropped 13 points -- independents are key in any election.
2:34 pm
in the next poll, the government is out of control and this is the fox news poll. look at that, almost 70's percent say government is way out of control. put up the rasmussen poll on individual rights. look at this, down a whopping 25 points among democrats. that is in just the last six months. your pollster, doug, nut in perspective. >> well, pat and john are right. this is a country that is going to turn en masse against the president. they see bake basic rights being us turned and want to know what happened to the government and the country, the basic freedoms and rights are eroded. >> gregg: after the n.s.a. news broke i fell out of my chair when i read the editorial, and i hurt my elbow, i read "new
2:35 pm
york times" the biggest cheerleaders of president obama the last five or 60 years and he is their editorial. "the administration has now lost all credibility and obama is proving the truism that the executive will use any power it is given and very likely abuse it." >> and then look at "wall street journal" normally a critic of obama, supporting this program. a great program. this is what i call the tipping point, the crisis in american politics. the american people know, wait, i am a verizon customer and i guarantee you at&t customers and everyone else, they are picking up all this information and the public is going, what are you doing, picking up our internet? they are not building -- the conspiracy nuts will be right. they are not building that place in utah for nothing and it offends americans in a way that the power structure and the status in washington in both parties don't understand.
2:36 pm
>> what is happening, 9/11 gave the government this excuse to hide behind national security and erect barriers we cannot cross. this guy, snowden sees himself as a hero. >> gregg: he will be prosecuted. he is not a whistleblower. >> but absolute power corrupts absolutely, since 9/11, the federal government on national security and intelligence issues has had absolute pout we are and we the people cannot contest it. >> gregg: doug, i have always said the term "honest politician is an oxymoron and the "wall street journal" poll is proving me correct. independent whose believe the president is honest and straightforward? that is down 18 points since
2:37 pm
january. going to the next "wall street journal" poll, and 55 percent question the administration's honesty and integrity. it just keeps getting worse and worse. dow jones industrial average -- doug? >> yes, this is a president who has managed to maintain his popularity based on likability and credibility. he may well have some likability left but that is eroding but the credibility as the numbers show is effectively gone and that is hugely important. >> gregg: pat you are a pollster so we will prefer to the next three polls, the honesty and integrity of i.r.s. probe, bad numbers here for the president, 55 percent just don't think he is honest. the justice department, same thing, at 58 percent. and the benghazi attacks, of
2:38 pm
course, essentially they think the obama administration and the president are lying. >> they saying, people are saying there was a new poll this weekend, saying that the people believe in benghazi, for instance, that cbs and "new york times" poll a huge majority, 20-point majority say they are hiding something rather than telling the truth. people believe the i.r.s. thing was a white house political operation. the public is way out on the politicians and they deciding this is being done against them. >> benghazi and the i.r.s. are being investigate bid one and the same committee in the house of representatives, government oversite, with one chairman, congressman issa. these are separate scandals. they should not both be in the same committee. we all think they should each have a select committee named to investigate them from top-to-bottom. >> gregg: but congress wouldn't have anything else to
2:39 pm
do. >> they don't have anything to do anyway. >> they would be investigating all these scandals. the white house is under increasing fire under a host of scandals including the terror attack in benghazi and how will they affect the president's second term. our insiders back in a flash. [ mrs. hutchison ] friday night has always been all fun and games

2:44 pm
at the height, 12,000 cuss tops were without power. a problem at a substation is being blamed. >> gregg: second term scandal hitting the white house all at once but showing no signs of stopping. look at this poll, majority of americans believe the administration is mostly hiding something regarding a terror attack on the consulate in benghazi so we will bring it back in. john leboutillier and pat caddell and doug schoen in miami today, our political insiders and, dow, on benghazi, this may turnout to be the sleeper, because only the tip of the iceburg has been revealed and the saturday majority of people have yet to be questioned. we don't know, yet, and congress doesn't even know their names, for the most part, right in so this could really escalate. >> that is exactly right. as pat has said in 9 past,
2:45 pm
watergate scandal took a while a year or a year and a half to play out and benghazi has more unanswered questions, where did the talking points come from? what did the president, the secretary of state, what did though know? when? who did they talk to? as you suggest, what did the survivors see? what did they hear? what did they know? what is their reaction? these are questions we have to get answers to. so far, no dice. >> gregg: susan rice is given a promotion. she is out there pedaling a lie, it may not have been her lie but she is out selling a lie and she gets a brand new promotion to be the national security advisor. >> let me tell you what was going on here, doug is right, it is benghazi according to the "wall street journal" that is showing people see president obama most involved. here the president is putting
2:46 pm
his finger's in everyone's eye, saying, basically, screw you. by promoting susan rice who was too incompetent to be director if she does not know what she was doing with the video statement or a con spire toes and tom donilon taken out because he sees the water coming and he is a survivor and he is the guy on the leaks and on the benghazi who could be called. >> >> gregg: the white house press secretary said he stole the brilliance of susan rise foremost in her field of coverup. >> the point on the evacuees who were evacuated after benghazi, i believe over two dozen c.i.a. personnel in benghazi at the time, and the president, today, could order they be allowed to talk to congress and we could find out the truth and but this
2:47 pm
behind us. the fact he hasn't done it seven or eight months later they are hiding some. >> the other scandal that hit heart this week for the obama administration, the two whistleblowers in the cincinnati office of the i.r.s. they have said, are you kidding? we didn't invent this whole thing. the targeting of conservative groups came directly from washington, dc, and they told committee lawyers on capitol hill, names. they gave names. they gave names. we will put on the screen the poll, where high ranking i.r.s. officials, were they aware in almost 60 percent say, of course they were. doug? >>guest: well, look, we have a couple of huge issues here. first, who ordered this unprecedented look at conservative groups? we don't know. i strongly suspect as the american people do it was high ranking i.r.s. people. the other thing, and you
2:48 pm
alluding to it, you had the then director of the i.r.s. in the white house 157 or 158 times and he met with stehpanie cutter, democraty campaign manager? you don't have campaign managers meeting with i.r.s. officials without those at the highest levels of the white house. >> gregg: we have to leave it at that. doug, pat, john leboutillier, our political insiders thank you. you can get more from "9 -- "the insiders" each monday. you can follow them on twitter, as well. we will be right back. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit.
