tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News November 2, 2015 1:00pm-2:01pm PST
stocks are in all-time record highs. everything from priceline to clorox, it's been a great day in the market and now it's time for the top of the hour and the top of the news. here's the map, neil cavuto. >> police here trying to move in to try to open up the entrances again because people inside the cme are unable to get out. there are multiple entrances to the cme but that this point we're told by security they're all being blocked in one fashion or another. >> the scene in a very angry windy city today. chicago, the cme, you name it, they trade it. futures and derivatives and options on everything from commoditied like soybeans and wheat to barley, oil. i you wanter dibs you can make a lot of money trading it and it's
that may and the tact they people in chicago and illinois, where they're going broke fast, want to put caps on trades. a -- taxes on the trades. what harm? the argument would be it could raise billion-of-dollars but would it do more harm than good? the scene today where they're saying in a modern-day grapes of wrath, it's time to pay for trading in those phil flint at the cme what is going down today. you were arguing you can chase the business right out of the city but those protesting said, look, we need the dough and the guys are easy targets. explain. >> they are the easy targets. basically they call. thes the moral monday. they were very well-organized group. at first there was lot of anger but when we started to share ideas i don't think we're as far apart -- we want the situation if the the illinois government to straighten out their act. it's just how they do it. and i don't think they realize
that what they're asking for would never work. if you try to tack on a dollar or two dollars a trade that, say they can raise $10 billion in revenue. the truth of the matter is a lot of the 10 billion trades will go to a different country so they could force businesses out of the country. not only that, or the state of -- the cme. but what it noticed is there was a lot of passion behind these people. they believed in what they stood for but i don't think they understood what they stood for. and at the same time it was very well-organized. they had people busing people in. taking them out. so i don't think we have heard the last from moral monday. >> now, we should explain a lot of them are very angry. if you live in chicago where you're just bankrupt, if you're a citizen of illinois, you're millions in arrears and they have to find some way to close the gap. now you're paying for garbage collection, which you never did, and they're striking on everything and anything in between and they see these
traders making a lot of money and figure they're an easy target, much as the "occupy wall street" movement. there is a difference to this group? i think what is so different here is that they're just sick and tired of being taxed or seeing their services cut, and this looks like a convent -- >> i think they are. they're tired of it. we're going to have a sales tax in the city over 10%. their property taxes are going up. they're angry. they're tired of it. but their anger is misdirected. cre are one of the institutions actually creating jobs, creating tax revenue, and keeping people in jobs, and all they might do affected by pushing the cme and putting a tax on them, you'll push the jobs out of the state to another place and leave a bigger hole in the state's
revenue -- >> a while ago they were blocks entrances to and from the cme so traders couldn't get in or out. >> right. >> authorities said they couldn't do that. how did it end? >> i think the cme did great. i they had a forewarning. the chicago police were blocking and the protesters' goal was to try to get into the cme group. they wanted to do this -- they've done other protests at other buildings around the chicagoland area, mall irgroups, and they war able to get into the building. but the cme did a great job in the chicago police did a great job by keeping them at bay. actually i think that was a good thing. once we're out getting to talk to the protesters, getting to see -- we realized, we're angry bet the same things. we're tired of the fiscal mismanagement of the state of illinois. we're tired of the corruption and we're tired of people that work hard and pay their pensions, get their services cut. >> good enough. in your neck of the woods.
thank you very much. phil flint. to art laffer who knows this attack the rich. tax people who work and pay people who don't, then you got a real problem, and seems to be what is going on here. a lot of them earlier on. let return to 90% tax rate. because you tacked us to the bone. we can't take anymore, they're angry. >> if you can remember back in -- you can't but being an older fell lashing detroit in the 1950s was the citadel, the paris of north america, and then they all started that in detroit. detroit went from a population of 1.85 million in 1950, to today it's less than 700,000. that is exactly what is going on in chicago. >> they had to get a fiscal manager. >> this will happen here, too. you can't tax a state into prosperity, can't tax a city into prosperity. >> have they not cut enough? chicago it's different than illinois. imthey got a republican government who can limit how
much we can change you. raise property taxes, going to fades in awesome emmanuel the mayor says -- rahm emanuel the mayor said exempt those 250 and under but they're trying to close huge gaps. >> when they get down far enough we'll never see. that's when the bankruptcy occurs. and then they'll reform late. but the reel problemes once you put in the taxes, it's so hard to remove them because the first couple of years our don't get the economic growth. >> sounds tempting. only want to tax pennies 0 tran is, and illinois withins of traits and they could make loot of easy money. they forget that the trading can go elsewhere. >> you can move billions internationally. that money -- just the way the companies did detroit. they used to be all the auto
companies were located in the city and then they moved tout the suburbs from the city put on a corporate tax. so these people move. they're -- the longer run they're really mobile. the book i did, i don't -- the way. of states and then i have the sequel to the wealth of states which looks at cities, counties, and local districts and states. it's amazing how. >> it's a popular pitch, a pitchfork feel it to, people are angry and taking it out on those who appear to have money or the wherewithal to help them pay these gaps, and they're not accepting middle ground here. they're going to get more violent. >> these processes almost always go to the end. they go to the collapse of the whole process and receivership, unfortunately. >> you think this keeps going and chicago can go bankrupt. >> chicago will. who wants to move to chicago. thank god for rounder because at least parts of illinois are
better. they are still pretty awful but chicago is a catastrophe. >> did they not cut enough or a feeling it was built on trying to close this gap through tax hikes or revenue enhancement? that sort of thing? just made it objectionable. >> you can't remove the taxes to attract people back in without having a big revenue loss in the first couple of years until the people move in. >> this is what hillary clinton is espousing and bernie sanders, this anger and the wealthy guys are why you're in the pickle you're in. >> that's why they don't have a chance of winning the election. it's not their reara -- era. it's like the '70s coming into reagan. johnson, nixon, ford, carter, all doing this tailspin. >> about the chasm between the rich and poor has widened and they blame the rich. how do the republicans respond. >> make the poor rich. you use the kennedy model. the best form of welfare is still a good, high-paying job.
you can't solve any of these problem width economic contraction. you knee economic growth but it takes some time and some plain planning. the rich people who pay taxes. who in their right mind treats customers -- >> how it's framed, just a couple of pennies on a trade. >> that's all the way it is. until they're all gone and then they say, how these rats left. then we should use the schumer line. let tax the ex-parts -- >> a childreny a lot of oil trading done in shuck, used to be done in new york and chicago wooed them with better tax raid. >> richard j. dary, the was the best. chicago works. new york doesn't work. in the '70s new york was a catastrophe, and chicago was -- that's when they attracted all this businesses in. now they're doing the dinkens model on chicago.
>> "occupy wall street." they got a better tune. >> some of them governor rock stars -- >> very much but palpable and real, and today it was a mess. all right, art laffer, thank you. going on in jacksonville, florida, jeb bush is trying to tap the rage in a way that makes it seem that there's nothing wrong here if you find a way to reach the rich and close the gap between the rich and poor, and in the case, close the gap in his poll neighbors between other candidates from whom he has been slipsliding away. so to byron york on another revamp of team bush. what are we to look forward to here, byron? how is the governor -- former governor trying to pitch himself now? >> he is starting a tour called the jeb can fix it tour, saying he can fix the problems in our government, going through florida, his home state, plus south carolina, plus new hampshire, and the next few days, and basically he holds a speech in tampa and says, i've got an lot of advice in this
campaign to do zingers and sound bites and all sorts of campaigny stuff and it's not me. i can't be me. i've been advised to hide my inner wonk. that changes now. he is going to be, i think, more authentic, more himself, more wonky candidate. he said i can't be something i'm not. >> so what was he in those debates? he tried to get tough. take the battle bat marco rubio. it backfired. he has been a wonk and has had credible positions when it comes to detailed plans for dealing with entitlements, tax policy, health care, and it's fallen on deaf ears. you could make the argue. he has given us a wonk screw -- wonk view how he can lead. >> the, i have to be me, you have to read that in light of the disastrous exchange with marco rubio in which he tried to zipping rubio and got it back
ten times worse. you're absolutely right. bush has rolled out a lot of policy in a lot of detail, and it has not caught on. either because hi is not connecting with voters or they have problems with the bush name or they believe it's time for a generational change. a whole lot of reasons they could be doing that. but you're absolutely right. he has done this substance-based campaign in which he talks about his record of -- as governor of florida. an office he left, by the way, nearly nine years ago. that's another problem. >> it's been a while since he was there. the fact he chose florida to do this, does he worry that florida is slipsliding away? that he could lose to marco rubio? that will still be a winner take all state for delegates and that could make or break him. >> absolutely. if he is in the race that would be disastrous. this is the former governor of florida with the sitting senator of florida can going to be a disaster for one of them and certainly bush is very worried
about that. but i will tell you, a lot of strategists say, got bigger problems than iowa, new hampshire, south carolina, and nevada, the first four states. he has to get through those before the bets to sec primaries and florida. >> one step at a time. byron york, thank you. >> thank you. >> speaking of this hot contentious debate within the republican party to the next big debate for the republican part candidates and fbn will be there next tuesday in milwaukee. fbn will carry that live the first, the undercard debate and the main debate. we'll be there and talk about business and economic issues since they seem to be coming up. looking at what is going on at the corner of wall and broad today, this surge in all the major markets. the dow now in positive toronto -- territory for the year. we left the third quarter down close to nine percent on all the major averages, specifically the
dow and s&p. that's now turned positive. so the fears we would have another 2008, the last down year for the market, that does not appear to be the case. we have a was to go. we'll keep an eye on it for you. >> what has gone on in the investigation of that russian airliner that crash overred the -- over the sinai? you know that playing cards with kenny rogers gets old pretty fast? ♪ you got to know when to hold'em. ♪ ♪ know when to fold 'em. ♪ know when to walk away. ♪ know when to run. ♪ you never count your money, ♪ when you're sitting at the ta...♪ what? you get it? i get the gist, yeah. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. whether your car is a new car an old car

responsibility. the executive airline in charge of this said that it looked like an external influence, even though that has been pooh-poohed by authorities at the scene. they've been taking no chances, though. a lot of commercial travel to and from the sinai area around egypt has been stopped or redirected much as across the ukraine when the malaysian airplane was shot done a couple of summers ago. that was then, this now. we have a commercial pilot on what he is hearing. one thing you hear in a situation like this, bob, is that if one plane goes down over a volatile area, the better part of judgment would be to avoid flying in that volatile area. some have followed suit. i'm surprised more weren't already doing this. >> that is the most amazing part to me, too, neil, because as you mentioned, when malaysian 17 was shot town over the airian, everybody said we didn't realize how bad an area it was, but i
cannot understand why any airline would fly over any hostile area and take the risk. >> now, the fact that others have followed up and abundance of caution, three carriers have avoided flights. the question is how long. it's more expensive in add fuel costs but that would be just a common sense response. >> you would think so, and again, we would have to look back at what happened after the malaysian crash in the ukraine. how long did it take before they went back to flying those again? how close are they to the hostile areas? but again, whether the pilots knew about this or didn't -- that's if we even find out that it was some sort solve missile. it may not have been that at all. >> we knee that debris was spread over a wide area, indicating something happened mid-flight and and you have an executive from the airline saying it was an external
innuisance, he or she wouldn't know what do you make of that, that it would be something mid-flight that caused an explosion of some sort? >> we have a limited number of things that could cause an explosion. it could have been a device of some kind, an explosion, a bomb of some sort, it could have been something else. but again, the story is still changing in a way that we have way more questions than we have answers. initially we had heard that the crew had gotten a message off that said they were going to divert to another airport. of course what i asked as a pilot, i'm surprised they didn't just turn around and go back to where they started from. >> we also hear as well -- you're right to be all- -- it was veering wildly, up and down, very dramatically, jarringly so, in its final minute or so. >> well, of course, that initial message is coming from flight
radar, one of the tracking systems. we're going to really have to wait on that until we see the information from the data recorders. of course right now the egyptians have that. how willing they will be to share that with the world, we don't know. all we can do is wait because it's out of our control. >> bob, thank you very much. >> you're welcome. >> we come back, more on what's going on in chicago where they want to tax the rich. one protester said we used to have a top rate of 90%. waste -- what's wrong with going back there?
in chicago. more are planned. and what the beef is, they're saying, look, what's the big dial if the fat cats who trade these commodities in the cme just slapped with taxes, few pennies a trade,ed a ad add it up it would ease the burden. ken says, be careful what you wish for. the home depot cofounder joining me now. what's the big worry. >> no worry at all. some people have to learn the hard way. you can tax the wealthy 100%, and you don't move the needle of the government's need for money. >> sounds tempting. just a few pennies a trade. >> look, the only way you learn is experience eventually. if these people think they're going to solve the problems, whether it's chicago or -- by the way i was in chicago yesterday and i heard that the mayor is now raising property taxes. >> rahm emanuel. >> guess what? you make these promises, you
have to pay for them. the thing -- >> haven't done enough of the cutting and spend little. they're charging monthly fees for guardian which they never did before. >> we're in an environment now where it's okay to kick the successful. it's okay. in fact it's encouraged. >> worry that this class warfare is getting worse? these people are very, very angry. they take it out on the rich who have gotten richer. >> its never has a happy ending. go wherever you want. now -- >> it ended with a guillotine in france. >> hope we don't go that far. >> but it's palpable. i'm not agreeing or disagreeing. >> that's too dramatic. >> the gee teen part. >> -- gee teen part. >> right. america has thrived on capitalism and will thrive again on capitalism. we may by throwing a period of time of experimentation.
we head 90% taxes before in america. didn't work. >> one protester said those their good old days. >> didn't work. i can't be responsible for what a mass crowd says and the way they get them agitated and everything else. i'm an optimist. we have five rough years ahead of us. >> now. >> yeah. we have five years, some things to fix. we have some serious issues with unemployment, with debt, with health care. we haven't solved the healthcare problem with obamacare. look at the increase. >> the gap between the rich and poor wiped 'ed under a democratic president as it's done over the years. what is causing this? >> that's whole point. see what he promised seven years ago. this president could have gone down in history as one of our greatest president if he said one thing. i want to be remembered for being the guy that moved the needle in a positive way and n
public education. want to close the income inequality gap in part? give us better educated kitted out of school, that can challenge and citied in challenge with technology give us those kids and watch the needle move. the fact is, go look at -- go back to when carter created the department of education. and look at the spend. and at the same time, put -- >> dumb as always. >> put a plotline about the results of public education. it's the exact opposite. it's like that. >> who used -- you used to like chris christie. >> i love him. >> we have jeb bush in a world of hurt, rebooting his campaign, speaking in jacksonville and is trying to say i'm going to be more direct, going to be a different jeb bush, is it too late? >> i don't believe in personality transplants.
i think that's what he needs. the guy is what he is. he is a very -- he is a decent, fine man. he is just not up to the task of being a gifted politician like you need to be today. that to be a negative. hillary is gifted as a politician. so was her husband. i'm a little freightenned by -- and his brother george was a politician in a certain sense. >> doesn't have that campaign -- >> he doesn't. i'm not sure he wanted it initially. i'm not sure -- i think when theyed all this money for him for the -- they raid all this money for him, that's an impressive. >> whoa is getting more money? >> right now i'm making a lot of calls. i am more and more hearing from people saying to me, i'm going to keep my bet in my pocket right now until you get down to four or five people and i can make it a more informed bet on who has a chance to win. >> the early polls saying cruz
and rubio -- >> rubio blahinged a million dollars. a million dollars in the presidential election is a spit in ocean. not a lot of money. >> but within 24 hours. >> good. do it every day for 30 days and then i'll say you got a tsunami on your handedded. right now -- >> how is your guy doing? >> we're doing all right. i'm intrigued by in the number of people -- he was on another network this morning and the number of calls about huh he had done and people are starting to have a second look. let me say this about chris, and i'm jaundiced. if you look at who can take on hillary, with the smarts, and with the delivery, there's nobody better than him. nobody. the other night on that debate, when he shot right at them and say we got big deficit -- >> i love the new jersey comment. >> even in new jersey. that's rude. that's quick.
and -- >> that's something bush doesn't have. >> i think it's a shame if we pick our political -- our government leaders do. >> have to have a balance. >> they've got to ignite. they've got to excite people. got to have people say, can go with this guy. this guy is going to take me where i want to go. >> do you donald trump hurt him? >> absolutely. >> so if trump were out of the race -- >> remember this, go back to '12 when weapon wanted christie to run. >> i remember. >> we were option because he was doing what the american people needed which is, quote, telling it as it is. >> trump is doing that. >> trump has come in and made that his mantra. everybody is bad. here's an example. i'm a staunch believer in term limits. big time. chris said on television one day, that he was in favor of term limits. he needs to talk more about that. >> well, we'll see.
very effective on the stump. >> we got a new speaker of the house. his whole entire life from the day he graduated from college is in washington. >> now we'll see. see how he does. >> and i'm high on him. >> good, you're high period. >> i'm high period. active management can tap global insights. active management can take calculated risks. active management can seek to outperform. because active investment management isn't reactive. it's active. that's the power of active management.

you know, liken our judge andrew napolitano to bring modern day columbo. always gnawing and gnawing and intoing thing others people do not see. on this hillary clinton, libyan embassy, what she knew, when he knew it, he refuseed to let it go away. a series of lies that could come back to bite her? >> absolutely. we know from the most recent e-mail dump, which always seems
to come out on a friday afternoon -- that not only was she informed by the cia that. ambassador stevens was killed by al qaeda. >> she knew pushing the video was wrong. >> she told her daughter in an e-mail and the then prime minister of egypt in an e-mail that al qaeda killed the ambassador. now we know that her own embassy staff, the people that work for her in tripoli, libya were saying, don't push the video. the libyans haven't seen the video. the video of may be a big deal in the media in the united states. we haven't seen it here. chris was killed by really bad guys. wasn't killed by demonstrators. the truth was. she knew her own people were rejecting the video. fastford two days now arranges cruise air force base,
ambassador stevens' body and the bodies of the three guards are received by her, in her capacity. what does she say to family and military and diplomats? they were killed by demon visitors who watched a video about hugh ham mad. so the per -- muhammad, she knew it was untrue, to the families of the deceased to the media, to her own colleagues in the state department, many of whom were there and knew she -- >> this is falling on deaf ears. what would would be the order of events, whether it's this or e-mails and private server, all this stuff blurs -- if the fbi director says i think we have grounds to pursue something. >> she has given the fbi additional grounds because of the deception before congress it's not a crime for her to deceive the rest of the state department and the public. it is when she is before congress. and because of her lying about
whether or not she knew that weapons were getting the hands ofables, al qaeda, who killed chris stevens, with american weapons and american bullet. if the fbi recommends an indictment and the west wing puts puts put s the kibosh on it you will see the indictment leaked and see regular nations in the fbi and the political fallout from that will be as disastrous to her presidential aspirations as if she had actually been -- >> there would be no indictment, though. >> the -- >> that event. >> in that event use, you think the embarrassment of all of the -- >> she will have been saved from indictment not because she was innocent but because she was the president's friend and former secretary of state. >> if the president view her a friend and the white house doesn't want to see her nominated. >> if the white house stays out of this, i think she gets indicted. >> on that ground. >> espionage, the failure to secure a national security
secrets, destruction of government property, a failure to return to the government all the e-mails she stole. lying to a federal judge about whether or not she surrendered all the e-mails in her custody and lying to congress about her awareness of the arms to rebels deal, which she authored and authorized and denied under oath. >> you know, you ought to pursue this law thing. you're pretty good at it. wow. judge, from his mouth, we shall see. well there's a push right now to say, all right, social secures, health care in general, is not working out. what if we just privatize it? you have ben carson in the villages in florida making just that pitch and they're not throwing things at him. after this.
if you love shrimp like i love shrimp, come to red lobster's endless shrimp... ...for as much as you want, any way you want it... sweet, buttery, and creamy. like new pineapple habanero coconut shrimp bites... ...and teriyaki grilled shrimp. and yeah, it's endless, but it won't last forever. picture this. ben carson in the belly of the health care beast, talking to a large group the the villages in southern florida about privatizing health care and
health savings accounts to let them decide what they want when they want it. that might seem counterproductive but it's winning him a large and loyal audience who are sick of health care and the way it's distributed in the country, kathy likes the plan and thinks other people agree. kathy, it is risky to go to a crowd like that who gets satisfied with the way things are going but he's making a different pitch. >> he is. we are in a campaign season of one-liners for sure but there's a lot to like about health savings accounts. they're affordable, they're tax free, they're portable, meaning you can take it from job to job. they reduce administrative costs and there's a lot to like. they've been a fundamental building block of health care, going back to reagan. a part of president bush's plan which was voted down by congress. however, they're not a pill that is a panacea for all of america's health care problems.
there's more to at the equation than this and without reducing medicare -- reforming medicare and met case along with taxes, then you don't get a fundamental policy. so they're important building block. it's great that carson is out the talking about them. he has some innovative approaches but they're not the entire solution. we need some major surgery on u.s. health care policy. >> what i think makes him stand out on this issue, not casting sides here, he is a doctor, world renowned doctor so someone of his oomph talking about this and how it could work, carries a little bit more cache. >> it does. he can bring an enormous amount of credibility to this issue and it's working. but i would encourage him, as a doctor, to also take charge of the responsibility to make this more about just hsas and one lines. he needs to bemer nuanced in his -- more knew appears --
nuanced. and you can't just get rid of medicaid and medicare. that's scary. >> he has issues but in an enviable position, being first or second in the polls. no so jeb bush who is trying to reboot his campaign. talk about a campaign that appears at least to be on life support as he repositions himself. no one denies his smarts-capability, record as a governor. what's going on with him? >> well, there's a lot going on. he's make something important changes chill will be beneficial. a man of great character. who has had a tremendous track record. but he hasn't been clear about his message. he has spoken about this. and we are in a campaign where people looking for a message and a mission and someone to look up to, and while i appreciate he is not buying into the anger and con temp he has show people he gets that. he has to be one of the people and be clear where he is talking the country, and he hasn't defined that yet.
health care could be -- while he is not a doctor, health care could be a really good area for him to do this because while i'm sure he is being careful to draw on certain suspects of george w. bush's legacy, healthcare reform was an amazingly effective attempt by the former president bush to transform u.s. policy, and i think we'll look back at the recommendations he made in 2007 as things that should have been done. his plan was going to add 9 million for no increase in funds. now with obamacare, 1.2 trillion in spending. >> he could make a case but might be too late. good to see you. >> ben stein has a message to all those protesters in chicago, demanding the rich cough up in more. i can't repeat it. but he is next. it's more than the cloud. it's security - and flexibility.

there is something odd about this, because they're protesting outside the securities office, yet securities are the most equal form of economic activity there is. if i own a share of gm, the share of gm doesn't know who owns it. if i own a share of google, that share knows who owns it. if there is a poor person that buys a share in a company, that share is the same as if a rich person buys it. there is total 100% equality in the ownership of securities, and that's something presumably we want more of. >> what a lot of these protesters say, of course, stan, the rich do-gooders can buy more. >> of course they buy more, because they work. why don't these people work today? what kind of jobs do they have that they weren't at work today? for each share the activity is exactly identical, and if you save and save and save, you'll

whatsoever with that. >> you don't mind that if we return to a top rate like that, it would be counterproductive? who would pay that? >> there is no reason very rich people should not pay high taxes. i live in a neighborhood where almost every family has two bentleys. why only have one bentley and one jaguar? >> what would be fair to ben stein? >> i would say go back to look at the eyisenhower years, we fet pretty good about ourselves. i think the rate was 91%, it was very, very high and probably 30 or 40 million a year now,
