1:00 pm
namath would lead the jets to the championship and then inked aing mega deal with dan green. >> two fierce storms bearing down, one is bringing blizzard can like conditions and the ice threatening to put a big chill on the economy and wall street. and while this storm's expect it to blow over in a few days, this one could go on for years. i'm in for neil cavuto. this is "your world." stocks taking a big hit on the first trading day of the year as obamacare kicks in, along with a slew of new taxes and new tax worries, just as the economy is showing signs of life, and we are all over it.
1:01 pm
sandra smith more on the potential pitfalls, ben ben willis on the stock exchange, and charles payne on the big push underway in new york city to tax the rich. and dr. ron paul on the healthcare storm that is brewing. sandra, big drop today? >> big drop today. leading to a lot of questions about whether or not that big rally in 2013 will continue. wall street analysts got it wrong, leading to investors to dismiss out on thal -- to miss out on the rally so wall street anists are bullish, calling on average for a 6% gain in the new year. one big reason is corporate profits on average are expected to surge 11%. that would top the 6% gain last year. now, while many wall street analysts are painting a very rosy forecast for 2014, they don't do this without
1:02 pm
identifying potential pit falls. one of those, notably is janet yellen. there's a lot of uncertainty about the fed. that plays into the picture. also got jobless claims numbers out today that did show a dip over the latest week, christmas week. but we still have unemployment rates hovering around 7%. that's a big uncertainty in the new year. but a lot of these analysts, their big pitfalls is, did the stock market enter into a bubble scenario? and identified the federal reserve tapering. will this exit from the stimulus program? will that be messy? and ceos will by they defensive and hold on to what is nearly a record amount of cash because of the uncertainties facing investors and companies. and washington, the biggest
1:03 pm
uncertainty of all. taxes, obamacare, going to play one of the biggest parts in whether or not this rally continues. >> sandra, we hear you. thank you very much. so goes january. so goes the year, or that barometer has been right nearly 90% of the time, since 1950. so, if today's selloff troubling? to stock trader ben willis who says the market needs a breather. ben, 2013, fantastic. first day of 2014, big selloff. what's the problem today? >> well, i think what we witnessed was a buyers' strike. most traders were lined up expecting the buyers to be here, putting new money to work into the market. money set aside from bonuses and the like that usually get put in lump sum on the first day of the year. no reason to panic. going back just 30 days ago you saw the same thing happen in december. traditionally the first day of the month we see a bit in the
1:04 pm
market. and today was dismal. not a classic bull-bear fight where the bears won. down 130 points on the dow jones, we saw a lack of buying power. we just closed over 600 million shares on the closing volume for the new york stock exchange. that's not a good day so not a good indicator of really the temper empty of the market. the market needs to have some sort of reprieve. it's not healthy for a market to run the way it has in the last, quite frankly, five years. last year we did not have a correction of more than 5%. we need to have one. i don't think today is the beginning of it. >> i can see a reason to selled to. if i own a couple of stocks that went straight up last year, if i sell them today, and take the profit, i've got well over a year before i've got to pay the tax on that profit. so, today was a pretty good day to sell if you made a lot of money last year. >> a very good day to sell,
1:05 pm
especially if you need to pay for the profits you may have taken throughout the year coming up on april 14th. and there seems to have -- some traders i talked to high net work individuals, believed what they were saying was taxed based selling to raise capital to sell taxes. so not an indicator of long-term thinking but was a surprise. i was on fox business last week, suggesting that we thought the first week of this year, we would see tremendous in-flows into the market. and when that was over we may see that correction. so, today literally with a buyers' strike, very surprising to see that. >> thank you very much. let's go to new york city now where it's not just the threat of snow that is a worry. this is, too. >> when i said i would take dead aim at the tale of two cities, i meant it. [applause]
1:06 pm
>> those in between 500,000 and a million dollars a year, would see their taxes increase by an average of $973 a year. that is less than three bucks a day. about the cost of a small soy latte at your local starbucks. we do not ask more of the wealthy to punish success. we do it to create more success stories. >> my. well, is this new tax push going to help or hurt the situation in new york city? charles payne thinks it will have a chilling effect on the economy. richard fowler disagrees. charles, do you think these tax measures that bill deblasio -- do you think he will elevate the position of poor people in new york city? >> absolutely not. it's interesting. he wents out of his way, me thinketh how to -- thou protest
1:07 pm
too much. this is his rhetoric and the tale of two cities. maybe it was the best of times but it's not the worst of times. what i hate about this ideology is people who are doing well, -- if have a buddy, in construction, made over 100 grand last year. best year of his life, and normally he should feel good about himself. takens care of his family, they go on vacations, but when he looks at what other people are feels bad. that has nothing to do with an economic system. that is pure envy. and with the bill deblasio wants to do is actually fan those names into something extraordinarily dangerous. >> richard, where is charles wrong? >> i don't think we're asking for millionaires to billionaires to feel bad. about themselves. >> people who aren't millionaires and billionaires who are -- other people are making six figures -- even those. >> we are asking them to pay
1:08 pm
their fair share in tacks no reason that a minimum wage wal-mart worker or taco bell worker or mcdonald worker plays 33 or 34 percent in taxess' something making quarter millions dollar a year paces 12 to 13%. >> what you're saying now is so off the wall. -- it's not. >> paid a lot more than anyone work at kentucky fried check. >> this is not an economic policy. i don't care what you tell me. take all the money from forbes 100, it bill not change the position of a person watching the show today, won't make that person without job skills richer -- >> makes our economy better. >> how? >> when 70% of economic growth is based on consumer spending and we know the fact to be true that those who have less disposable income spend mow paying for rent, food, toilet
1:09 pm
paper, more money going into our economy. what doesn't work is this trickle down economics or this whole idea if you cut tacks for millionaires and billionaires, it's going to trickle down and all of a sudden poor people won't be poor. >> richard, in his inaugural address the mayor said he is going to raise the tacks making half million to a million dollars a year on average by 973 tuesday a year. that's the average. >> pennies to them. >> wait a second. he says he will use that money to provide universal prekindergarten, preschool care, universal. do you think that is enough to pay for universal preschool in new york city? >> i'm not looking at the books and not in the mayor's finance office. what the mayor is trying to say here if we can take -- these who make a little more can give a little more and we can educate our young people and create on america -- the mesh dream that works for generations and generations to come. what we can't do is rob our children and close schools and get rid of early education and
1:10 pm
expect the american dream to continue. that's what you can't do. >> it's a good debate and we hear it. i'm sure this will go on for a long time to come. thank you. the healthcare law officially kicking in, but the numbers still not adding up. that's because more than 6 million people have lost their healthcare plans, compared to just over two million that have actually been able to enroll in obamacare. dr. ron paul says this is what you get when the government gets involved. dr. paul, welcome back to the program good to see you again, sir. >> thank you, stuart. good to be with you. >> does this obama car fiasco spell the end of activist government? >> i wish. but, no, there's a lot of die-hards out there. there will be excuses made and politicians will spin it put it will end because it's a disaster. this is a sign that the delivery of healthcare will even be worse than signing up for the
1:11 pm
healthcare. so, it's a tax in many ways because the insurance policies are going up. but the big thing they never talk about is, the government is supposed to be involved in contracts and having policy. one is to guarantee the policy, and you can't cancel it. here the government gets involved and all of a sudden insurance companies can cancel you willy-nilly. they thought they would get a big deal because they would get more customer, then they had mandates and had to put certain things on and it's skyrocketing. the cost of medical care, when it's all added up, is going to be huge. it's going to be like a tax and the quality of care and what people are going to get-everybody tells me, they're canceling me, charging me more, i'm getting less, and they're furious. the biggest political issue this year. >> we can't get rid of it in the near term. cannot be reversed for some time to come. the question is, is it so
1:12 pm
entrenched that you really cannot repeal it totally and get rid of it completely? >> you're not going to get rid of it. you're right. they're going to limp along. if republicans live in a fall they may tinker with and it change it, but the only way it's going to disappear quickly is if it's totally self-destructs which is conceivable, everybody quits because they're get nothing where and just opt out. today, if -- even if you're of modest income, if you go to a doctor and say, all i want to do is pay you cash, and give me some services, believe me, it's very, very cheap. the one problem is it that if they do it, they might be break something federal law. if they're dealing with the government in any way and they -- member comes in and says, this $500 procedure, costs that much, i'll do it for $100, the doctor can get in trouble with that and be penalized and convicted of a crime. one day it's going to be so bad
1:13 pm
that people are just going to opt out on their own. what we need to do is change the congress and allow people to get out of this monstrosity. >> do you think there's a direct relationship between new tacks on healthcare premiums and the spike on insurance itself and the spike in premiums that we're seeing? there is a relationship between the two? >> i think so. and i think the insurance companies had a quid pro quo they could raise fee. it's a tax whether the insurance company raises fees or there's a tax from the government. it's all a tax, and if you talk about inflation, as medical care is a significant percentage of our cost of living, and it's going to go up hugely. so we have inflationary costs and quality going down and people angry, and all we need to do is the right to opt out and have a little -- >> all of the above. thank you, ron paul.
1:14 pm

blizzard warnings up from long island to coastal maine, so maybe you're not getting the jackpot of storm totals in terms of snow, winds gusting over 50 miles-per-hour will make travel impossible. it's going to cripple travel overnight tonight and into tomorrow. so, as we look ahead, friday morning's commute will be very, very hard across the i-95 corridor it's out of here by the afternoon but we're still left with blustier conditions. so winter weather advise riz and in red is where we have our blizzard warnings, including long island, maine,, people are urged to stay inside. a snow day for kids in boston north, but the temperatures are going to be so frigid people need to be staying indoors. this is forecast wind chill as we go through the evening, it's going to drop considerably below

delayed. 600 flights cancelled for tomorrow. the bottom line is this. if you're traveling anywhere in the next 24 hours, contact the airline. you could be half a world away and still be grounded. back to you. >> we hear you. thank you. heat your home? this monster stormes walloping you no matter where you live. >> first, obamacare. plenty of people fed up with it. was it all just a setup?

1:25 pm
single pair system -- single payer system could make sense. >> a heavy lift. i would have preferred sicking payer or public option. >> obamacare is a step in the right direction but far from something that will work. >> people will work beyond insurance. >> absolutely, yes. >> i'm all for a singling payer system. >> i happen to be a proponent of single payer. >> we cannot get to university heck -- universal healthcare, which i believe is a core democratic value and imperative for our country. >> guy benson says this is why obamacare was desigield, and richard says if the democrats wanted a subject payer system that we have created one. guy, single payer, similar to the uk or canada. you think this was the goal all along? >> just listen to the word that you just played. one prominent democrat after
1:26 pm
another explaining in sort of just in black and white, this is what we want. a singing payer system. there are some conservatives who believe that obamacare was designed to implode the way it currently is in order to usher in a single-payer era. >> too you believe that? >> i don't think -- >> guy? >> i don't. they have really squandered by then meaning democrats -- squandered their credibility by saying we'll do this massive overhaul of the healthcare system, it's going to do these four great things and it has failed on virtually every one of the promises and betrayed millions of people. so i think the goal for obamacare was to over time transition the pock to be a little bit more conditioned to increased government intervention in healthcare and then shepherd us into single payer, not to explode on the launch pad. >> richard, a lot of people suggest this -- the difficulties
1:27 pm
of obamacare, the near collapse of obamacare, is an excuse for the left to push for a single payer system. they will use this as an opportunity to go much further than obamacare. you see it coming like that? >> well, your reference to a collapse of obamacare, don't tell that to the millions of seniors who have saved bills -- >> get beyond this. >> you can't make an assertion and then refuse to let me refute it. the seniors are saving billions. the millions of young documents who are on their parents' program. the people who don't have to worry about being imponchished by an illness or hospitalization. those people don't see any kind of collapse of anything -- >> okay. the difficulties of obamacare -- do you think that the left will use the difficulties, which i think you will admit to, of obamacare, as an excuse to go much further towards singing payer system? do you think that will happen? >> i will admit the rollout of
1:28 pm
the web site was a problem. i will not at mitt we know -- this program was just implemented yesterday, stuart. this notion that you -- words like collapse? come on. >> answer the question. are we moving towards a single payer system? are we going in that direction? what do you think, richard? >> remember that famous sign in tea party rallies, tell the government to take its hands off my medicare. that was something you might have found in south park. medicare is the government program and yet the tea party people were embracing that as hard as they could. so you're talking about single payer as being this -- antithetical to the u.s. system. and somebody that nobody left or right is trying to break up is medicare or the va system, which is what single payer is. >> sounds to me like the answer from you is yes. >> i'm not saying that -- no. we're not going there. the reason we're going where
1:29 pm
obamacare is taking us is because it was predicated on what the heritage foundation laid it and what mitt romney implemented as governor, which is working in the state of massachusetts, and the assumption was it will work there, it will work nationally. we'll see. it's slightly early since we're a day into this to make a judgment one way or the other. certainly there was reason to think that obamacare's model had ample precedents. >> guy in? >> into much to refute there on the point of obamacare, this isn't just about a botched rollout. this is about central promises. if you like your plan and doctor you can keep them. lower premiums, decreased healthcare spendingle. none of those things are coming true. that's not something that just happened today and let's wait and see. that is being felt be millions of americans already. if we want to get a sense how this law is faring, fewer americans are insured today than they were last year, because of this law. that is a failure.
1:30 pm
so, i mean, that is obamacare. it's a separate issue from the single payer transition. i just think it's going to be difficult for lefties to come to the american people and say, never mind, just kidding, what we really need is to give the government even more control over our healthcare system. this being the same federal government that had a billion dollars and, what, three and a half years to build a functioning web site, and could not do so. by all means let's give them more control over our healthcare. >> guy, richard, out of time. we appreciate the debate. >> thank you, stuart. >> this monster storm, zeroing in on the northeast, but people nationwide are about to get hit in the wallets. ♪

2014, only two days in and small businesses' patience is wearing thin. according to the national federal racing of independent businesses the group has yet to find a single member that has seen its healthcare cost lowered by obama cars and a majority have seen costs increase.
1:42 pm
joe, you're part of this group. you have seen higher costs for your small business? >> yes, i have, as a matter of fact. we just received our renewal notices the other day. our premiums are increasing from 13 to 25% this coming year. which is making it more difficult for me to continue to provide insurance for my employees, something i voluntarily have done for the past 25 years. >> are you actually thinking of not providing insurance or pushing them out the door? getting coverage in some other way? >> that is part of the complexity of the law we're looking into. that's one over the options, we give our employees an amount to purchase insurance on their own. it's just so complex, and the time of the business owner that i've wasted and had to spend on analyzing the different plans and how they'll affect my business is one of the major problems with the law.
1:43 pm
it's created a boondoggle for maybe businesses. >> i'm intrigued at this survey you have done. not a single respondent said the price, costs, premiums have again down in price. not a seen that before. not a single respondent. >> that's right, stuart. and keep in mind the cost of health insurance for small business owners has been rising steadily for 30 years. and now it's getting worse. we're really in a time of insult to injury. we heard from business owners every day who say i can't afford it for myself. i don't know if i can afford it for my blowees, joe's story is like what we are hearing every day and it's tragic. >> what joe is saying that he is seeing increases of well into the double digits here. is that what other members reported in your survey, jean? >> absolutely. i would say 20% increase is the minimum we ev of. we hear plenty that are

doubling. >> tell be empty deductibles. that's another huge increase issue. >> the self-employed like to have try to get a catastrophic or high deductible plan because it's more affordable, and now their tee ductibles are going way up and so everything is more expensive. the premiums premium deductible. >> joe, request -- joe, you run a printing business. are you going to hire more people? >> right now we're carefully watching who we're hiring. we're actually depending on how the government calculates it, we're right around the 50 employee mark. another provision of the law that is difficult north just the sheer number of employees. i have to track hour by hour the cumulative amount that my employees work in total to make sure i don't go over the 50 mark yet because i want to see the full ramifications of the law down the line.
1:45 pm
>> there's nothing you can do, is there? the obamacare law is up, running, not going to be repealed anytime soon. you have to live with it, joe. >> that's the concern. in the past at least i had flexibility. i was able to pick plan that worked for the demographics of our company and our employees. this is just further limited our ability to provide a benefit for our employees, and we may not be able to provide it going forward, and that's my real concern. >> jean, what is your group doing about this? >> well, right now we're actually actively trying to collect these stories so we can show members of congress and the administration how dire the situation is. i am encouraging everybody to tell their story and we can shine light on this and show it's got to change. something needs to be done. >> not a going to change anytime soon, jean? >> we'd like too find some relief. >> would you favor a one--year

delay in the individual mandate, for example? >> you know, i think that would be okay, but really, a delay is not -- we need permanent solutions. business owners need to know what to count on and what the future, and be able to plan. changes and fixes and relief, we really want them to be permanent. >> okay. joe olivo, jean kearn, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> instead of spending cuts, what is congress planning in the new year? and forget dancing. rob's running again. ♪ let's get together and feel all right. ♪ >> who do i speak to about the code of conduct. >> with respect to the code of

1:48 pm
it's hard to describe, because you have a numbness, but yet you have the pain like thousands of needles sticking in your foot. it was progressively getting worse, and at that point i knew i had to do something. once i started taking the lyrica the pain started subsiding.

1:51 pm
h >> my record speaks for itself. >> only time will tell. . take a look at this. when time magazine says keeping your doctor under obamacare is no easy feat you know it's bad. why can't i keep my doctor? >> thank you for having me stewart. really obamacare has put insurance companies, doctors and patients and hospitals in an situation. when they are requiring more patients to have expensive unnecessary benefits with more regulations and strings tide to it, owner regulation, taxes and less money, you can't have your doctor and can't have you're hospital and can't have your health plan. what's happened if you look at california for example, out in california under the new
1:52 pm
individual plans that the insurances had to create for obamacare, they came to the doctors and they came to the hospitals and said if you want to participate you're going to have to anticipate 30% less. we're already working our tails off for less. we can't work for 30% less. as a result up to 60% of doctors are participating. that means 40% are not in the plans. 25 to 30% of hospitals aren't even in these plans. >> is this changing the relationship between doctor and patient? >> it absolutely is. this sacred patient doctor relationship is no longer. the government is coming in and telling insurance companies what to do. we are really just -- i think they consider the patients and doctor the inconvenient ann
1:53 pm
annoyan annoyance. these patients that had individual plans they liked were deemed not good enough. they lost their plan. they had to resign up for plans that are more expensive. they don't have access to doctors. some patients will have to drive 100 miles to the nearest hospital to them. the doctors and the hospitals that they are able to go to are often not the best. for example, in california, cedar sinai is not part of the individual plans as are none of the la teaching hospitals. >> if do you think there's a two tier with the best go to this group of people and everything else gets everybody else? >> looks like a recipe for disaster where you're now having to pay great amounts of money to go to a place where the government has struck a deal for you to go while everyone else that can afford to can go to
1:54 pm
better hospitals. it's stifling research, invasion, and patients getting the best care. it's quite concerning. what's really concerning is doctors, often times we don't know if we're on the plan. i had to have my office manager log in to before christmas and see if i was on the plan. i'm not going to be able to cooperate and comply with the strings that i will have to by october 2014, yet i'm listed. i feel this is only deceptive to my patients that a might be signing up. >> doctor, i wish i had more time. you're telling the story from the inside. i'm out of time. come and see us again soon please. we appreciate you. >> thank you for having me. >> doctor, thanks. we're forcing ourselves to spend less and maybe weigh less this time of year, what's congress set to do? hold on a second. we'll tell you.
